About Michael

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a retired elementary school principal and a life-long dog owner. Spending my days and nights in the company of dogs is a labor of love. I know how stressful it is to leave one's dog in the care of others, and I strive to provide my guests with the level of care and attention that I hope my dogs would be provided in my absence.

My home is 100% dog friendly. Dogs are welcome on the furniture and have dog-door unlimited access to a fenced in back yard and deck area.

I am pleased to host dogs of all sizes. Guest dogs must get along well with other dogs. I have a chihuahua and a jack russell terrier and cannot host aggressive dogs.

Michael is a dog lover through and through. He is caring, loving... And just a good person over all. Recently I had back surgery and Michael took care of mine and my sister's dogs for the week. He gave them toys, fed them, and played with them all the time! I know this because he knew I was missing her and would send me videos. You would be lucky to have him.

I had needed help with my dog on short notice. She is not very shy but can be a little skeptical of new people and places. Knowing this Michael took my dog as well as my brothers with no further question. When my dog refused to eat he sat on the floor and hand fed her, they went on long walks everyday and he sent us lots of pictures!... I didn't have to worry at all and felt so comfortable with leaving her with him!

First time ever using dogvacay or a home-based dog sitter. My dog came back happy. I know he was well cared for and I will be using Michael again. Great communication. He seems to really love dogs. I trust him completely. His own dogs are very nice.
We did not find Michael on dogvacay. However, we used him through it. A friend recommended him to us. I don't know where to begin! We went to Punta Cana over Christmas. After a horrible experience with a costly and reputable boarding place, we didn't know what we were going to do! Then we found Michael! He sent us pictures daily, texted us good news like butters is relaxing and their bowels were solid as they often get upset stomachs. Michael ran out and purchased the exact kind of dog food as he ran out of what we brought. The dogs were visibly happy in all the pictures. They were also so tired when we picked them up because he walks them three times a day and even took them on a hike the day we picked them up. Our flight took longer than expected and he was completely flexible with that. I also enjoyed the fact that he has two well behaved dogs and I truly feel like it helped our dogs behave and learn. Just a total amazing and reassuring experience. I will never use anyone else! Not even family members who don't follow through with the way we trained them! I would not have been able to really enjoy our vacation if it wasn't for Michael!!!!
