About Michael

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome to Mike's Puppy Paradise!
I own a beautiful and spacious home in Clermont Florida with a large fenced in backyard perfectly situated to be a home away from home for your four legged children.
Growing up our pets were alway considered members of the family and as a young person during the summers I volunteered at the local Veterinary clinic which set in motion my love of pets and understanding of the skills needed to properly care for them. While I do not currently own a pet I have over the past twenty-five years enjoyed the company of many different breeds from Pugs to Labradors each with their own personality and temperament .
My house is situated on a quiet non-through street with plenty of excellent walking opportunities in the neighborhood. In my home I prefer a casual living arrangement with pets allowing them to be at ease and sleep where they prefer. I do however respect each family's individual approach and needs and will do my best to match their lifestyles at home.

Thank you for considering my home to be your pets nest vacation spot I look forward to being your pets next best friend!

I would have to say I am very surprised how well my dog's visit went. I am the owner of an adorable but VERY needy dog named Milkshake. My wife and I both work from home and our children are home schooled. Milkshake is a Maltese, which is a very dependent animal, prone to separation anxiety, so being home all the time just makes that much worse. We have felt trapped, since we brought Milkshake into our home 8 years ago.
Milkshake stayed with Mike for 4 nights. I never would have believed that she could be calm and enjoy herself without her pack, but MAN! Awesome job Mike. You are truly a dog whisper! I could not recommend anyone any more highly!
We have a new member of our family now.
Thank you!

Ginger always thinks it's awesome to stay with Mike. And I appreciate how he indulges my obsessive instructions regarding feeding and exercise. He is always our first pick.
I have 3 dogs...a Chocolate Lab, a Weimaraner, and a Yorkie. And, I was looking for an alternative to a kennel for my family's week long vacation. Michael seemed to be a perfect fit since he didn't have any animals of his own and works primarily from home. Michael suggested a meet and greet at his home prior to our vacation. This was when I knew that I would be leaving the pups in good hands. Michael was wonderful. He sent me photos and updates throughout my vacation. And, I came home to very happy dogs. Thank you, Michael!

The DogVacay experience with Michael W was terrific! As a worried pet owner I felt that we left our golden in the hands of a real pet lover.
We felt so comfortable leaving Ginger with Mike. Our confidence was well rewarded. He has such a pleasant way about him and of course no one can pick up on that faster than a dog. Ginger is suffering with age related joint issues and Mike took precautions with stairs. We received some cute photos of her looking relaxed and at home. She is severely cowardly at home with storms, but that must be a function of our anxiety since she was able to keep her cool at Mikes house. We have already recommended him to neighbors. I can't imagine that any dog would be unhappy at Mike's house.

Let me start off by saying that Mike might best the best dog sitter I've ever had. He has plenty of room for pets. He is great with the animals. He made my dog (large) feel right at home. We have taken our dog to well regarded boarding kennel place before and she came back with bloody stool and overall was shaken to the point where we almost had to take her to vet. With Mike my dog didn't skip a beat. He even sent updates to alleviate our worries.

The only negative is that I think when i brought my dog home she missed mike and was sad she had to leave!!! She might like him more than me!

Thanks Mike you are awesome!

Mike did a fantastic job taking care of Tilly. I received a text with a picture every other day or so telling me how she was doing.

He was kind enough to work me about the pickup time since I arrived back in Orlando at 6:30am

I highly recommend Mike and will definitely have Tilly stay with him again while I'm away

My pups came home stress free! I would recommend Mike any day! I have a blind pug who has several medical issues. She came home happy she actually played and growled (playing) with me she hasn't done that in a long time. I think we should call Mike a dog whisperer. Thank you again for taking such good care of my fur babies!

We've used DogVacay a few times before & leaving our beloved pup with Michael was the best experience we've had yet. We could really tell he cared about our dog just as much as we would. He made our dog's care, comfort, & happiness a priority and it was evident when we came to pick him up how much fun he had because he wanted to show us all of his new tricks & his new friend, Michael.

We will definitely be using Michael again!
