We came to Michelle again on very short notice and again she totally came through for us. She is great with our dog...we could not be happier!
Michelle really came through for us on very short notice and Bella loved her!
Michelle was such a wonderful host for our dog! She's so sweet and kind-hearted. We were going on a long trip out of the country and were a little worried about him, but she was great. Our minds were totally at ease and we would definitely bring our dog for another vacation at her house. Thanks so much Michelle!
I requested Michelle's boarding services for Harvey, our sweet 5-year old boxer, on New Year's Eve. At the time of the reservation, she didn't ask any questions or require that I provide proof of vaccinations. In retrospect, this should have been a red flag, but she seemed accommodating, so it didn't stand out to me.
That evening, I received a hysterical call from her saying that my dog had been in a fight with another dog she was watching, that her husband was bleeding after intervening, and that I needed to come pickup Harvey immediately. I was an hour away, so I left immediately and picked Harvey up. When I arrived, she told me that Harvey and a pitbull got into a fight. She claimed that my dog was the aggressor. Harvey has severe bruising and bite marks as a result, but was somehow the aggressor? Harvey is the sweetest, nicest dog ever. He has been to other dog daycare a thousand times, and he's usually a favorite guest when I come to pick him up. I mentioned later to her that for some reason pitbulls don't like Harvey, and now she is claiming I neglected to tell her that my dog has a history of aggressive tendencies towards pitbulls and that I endangered her family and her other guests by not disclosing this information. Harvey does not have a history of aggressive behavior, period. He was attacked and injured in her home. She is threatening legal action if I don't pay for her husband's scratched wrist. Steer clear!
Michelle is pleasant to work with. Her daughter was so excited when Honey arrived! Thank you Michelle!
Michelle and her family were very nice, and seem to love dogs. I brought Michelle my two small dogs to watch and she kept them separate from the big dogs only because we were afraid they might be scared,(her dog, and the dogs she was watching, seemed as gentle as could be). Cody and Daisy will definitely be back when the opportunity arises!
Thanks Michelle!
Michelle was great with my dog, Larry! I could tell he didn't want to leave when I came to pick him up!
I cannot thank Michelle enough for taking such great care of my pup! Her entire stay she kept us updated with pictures and made sure to let us know how Juney was doing. When we picked Juney up we even got the sweetest card from Michelle's daughter. Definitely will be using her again next time we are in the OC.
Michelle was a great host for my Supai, my 2 and a half years old doggy.
The only thing i would prefer to be done differently is that she should allow me to spend a little bit of time with my puppy in her house, she was in hurry and i couldn't stay even 5 minutes with him there, he didn't see me when i left and i think he thought i abandoned him... In almost all the pictures he looked sad and when i picked him up he was very sad, he even didn't look at me... witch never happened before.
Important is that i took him back healthy.
Thank you Michelle .

Ps. I would let Supai again in her dog vacay. He was safe.
Next time i will ask her to spend a little time with him there.
