About Michelle

Hello Doggy Parents!
My name is Michelle and I am here to provide your dog(s) with their vacation, while you are on yours.

I have my ow a a nine en year old Yorkshire Terrier. Aside from experience of owning a dog and dog sitting, I am a head volunteer at a local dog rescue where I have gained the most experience and knowledge. I take part in rescuing dogs that are about to be euthanized at shelters, approve/disapprove applications on adopting one of the dogs, I foster, and work on behavioral issues. Therefore I know breeds and behaviors!
town-home is located in a beautiful neighborhood; there is a trail/park park within short walking dis.near! I can take your dog on walks or runs if they’d like to, or they can hang out and play ball as much as they’d like tmy enclosed large back yard.

I have handled/fostered dogs with behavioral "issues" such as dogs that are stranger wary and will bite strangers, dogs that are leash reactive and will lunge at another dog, etc. The only requirement is that your dog live peacefully with my dog.

They will truly be loved as my own dog, sleeping on the bed and having fun! My home is full of doggy love and they'll love coming over for their own vacation :)

PS: Here's an explanation of the above pictularge, fully enclosed res!

3. Me with Zoe and her new forever home! I rescued her from a Modesto shelter where she was going to be euthanized for being a "nipper." I knew about the breed and their typical behavior and I knew she was just terrified in the shelter environment! She has blossomed into the most amazing pet and is one of my favorite suc3ess stories!

Michelle was able to host my puppy last minute which I was very thankful for. She was very sweet and my dog warmed up to her as well as her dogs in an instant. She was able to keep me updated via text with how my dog was doing as well as sharing photos. I would definitely recommend her especially because there are many places in the area for your dog to have walks.
Michelle was super responsive with my last minute booking. She let me know she was available in less than 24 hours and we were able to immediately set up a meet n greet. She was able to accomodate Koa early (6:30am) morning. She is super experienced with caring for dogs of all ages, sizes, and temperaments as she works with a great dog rescue organization. Michelle's dog, Nikki, is absolutely adorable and friendly and the area where they are located has a lot of grassy open space for plenty of dog playing area.
