About Michael

23 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
After several years of fostering abandoned dogs to save lives, I decided to love daily-guest dogs too. I'm retired, have a dog I rescued as my constant companion, devote 24/7 to animals in my care. We have lots of play/adventure time here, followed by quality rest in a secure, loving environment.

Michael is the ideal person to bring our dog when we are out of town. Middleport is not as far as I thought. I know our dog will be happy to see Michael again. And we can rest assured that our dog will be in the best hands.
Michael is wonderful with our dog, Fred. He treats Fred like his own, taking him for rides and walks. Fred always returns home happy.
Michael is probably our dogs new favorite person! They were treated like royalty. Michael is kind and attentive, a real dog person. I feel very fortunate that he was able to take our dogs into his house.
It was a relief to know that our four legged kids were in good hands while we were on vacation. Pictures and updates were very much appreciated.
Michael is a gem! He enjoys our dog and she likewise enjoys her time with him.
Michael is a warm and welcoming dog sitter. He accepted Fred, our Springer Spanial into his home as one of his own. Fred does not do well in a traditional kennel, but he thrived with Michael. Michael devotes all his time to his guest dogs, taking them for walks and giving them lots of attention. Fred will be back with Michael in Sept. We are so glad we found Michael.

Michael is an absolutely perfect choice for watching my dog. He is extremely attentive and really cares for my pet. I couldn't ask for a better choice!
I am so glad that I found Michael. Not only has he been great with my dog Meatball, but he has been great with me as well. I cant think of a better person that I would have watch my dog.
Michael continues to be wonderful for my dog. I am certain of this given that my dog hesitates to leave with me after a fun filled day at Michael's! I know I have found someone whom I can completely trust to treat my dog with the utmost care in my absence.
My dog Meatball absolutely loves going to Michael's house. He is treated like a king the entire time he is there. He even manages to learn a thing a two! I recommend Michael without hesitation to anyone looking for someone to watch their dog.
Leaving my dogs with Michael is wonderful. He takes care of them like they were his own. He loves them like they were his own. I will leave them to him in my will. The thing that I like the best is that he doesn't cage them. They have the run of the house just like they were home. He does spoil them but it ok. I recommend him whole heartedly.
Another week with my dog at Michael's, and another happy dog (and owner)! My dog enjoys it very much at Michael's and is well taken care of. Honestly I couldn't ask for anything more.
As usual, Michael is a fantastic host for my dog. There is no question that my dogs loves spending time at Michael's as evidenced by his excitement every time we pull up the driveway! There is no question that I will contact Michael for all of my dog-sitting needs.
When we arrived to pickup Kona, the first thing Michael said was "These two (Kona and Meatball) want to get married" The daily emails gave us a hint as to how happy she was with Michael and Meatball.
Once again Michael has done a wonderful job with Meatball. I can tell that my dog really enjoys spending time with Michael. He is also learning new things - one of the most important being how to behave with other dogs present. Thank you!
Really can't say enough positive things about Michael. He is 100% dedicated to the dogs he watches. I have brought my dog to Michael before and will continue to do so. Thank you Michael!
Michael is a wonderful man with a great love for dogs. He made sure our Reilly was warm, safe, and fed, and he provided all the stuffed animals Reilly could want (Our boy is not very gentle with the little creatures). I recommend Michael for quieter dogs who are happy hanging out at home and in the yard (always with Michael's supervision).
Michael takes wonderful care of my dogs. They like to go and stay with him because they get spoiled rotten. Michael is a great sitter and I wouldn't take them any place else. Sue Ryan Sauer
Michael is a treasure....I don't know what else to say. He's a natural with dogs and maybe even a bigger dog lover than me ( but it's close). My Dex is a big puppy and just couldn't settle down because he was so glad to be there. He remembered last time and loves staying with Simone & Michael. Dex LOVES Michael's toy pile and showed his genuine appreciation by dragging about 20 of them all over Michael's yard littering the snow like Santa's sleigh exploded. Sorry to leave you with that mess Michael ! ;-)
Michael is absolutely excellent with dogs. This is very apparent as soon as you meet him. Not only this, but his home (inside and out) is perfectly setup to accommodate dogs. Not to mention that Simone is a sweetheart and is as good with other dogs as Michael is!
My "Meatball" even has learned to sit after only a few days with Michael.
Very highly recommended; will bring Meatball again without hesitation.
Michael was absolutely perfect for Stella. He was understanding to our way of raising Stella, and had no problems connecting with her at all. He was perfect with communication and I am sure I will be using Michael again.
Charlie and Bagel had a wonderful time as usual. Michael always takes good care of them and spoils them rotten. Bagel is a short legged dog so Michael built him a ramp so it wasn't so hard for him to get up on the bed. My dogs are spoiled rotten!!!!!!!!! I wouldn't take them any where else.
Michael is a such a great guy and it is easy to see he is a genuine dog lover. My Dex took to him and his dog, Simone, right away. Before I left, in my conversations with Michael, he told me he considers the time he hosts a dog as that dog's vacation time too...not just MY vacation. I giggled about that...but he is really serious. Dexter had a great time with him !! ...I could tell because he was so happy when I went to pick him up and was a bit hesitant to leave...going back and forth between me and Michael! I am so grateful that I found Michael. Knowing Dexter was in great hands allowed me to have a wonderful, carefree vacation. That never happens when I sent my dogs to a kennel. As nice as they were, there's no way they can give the time and attention that Michael does. It's like having a family member, who loves your dog as much as you do, take care of them. I would not hesitate to go away again if Michael was available to watch my guy. I couldn't have asked for anyone better....he is a treasure. My only concern now is that if you all take my advice and use Michael to dogsit...he might not be available to take my Dex in! LOL can completely trust your beloved furkid to Michael...he's pawsome! (Thanks, Michael! Dex says 'Hey!' and asked me when I'm leaving again.. .'-)
Michael is amazing with my dogs. He spoils them rotten when ever they are there. His dog Samone is very good with the dogs. The last time they went to Michaels for a visit I had to have my knee replaced and it was so comforting to not have to worry about the boys while I was in there. Knowing Michael was taking care of them was a huge relief.

Michael did a great with the 2 dogs for the first time. He is always excellent with Charlie. Bagel is a beagle and needs different care than Charlie but I know he and Michael with figure it out so he remembers his manners at Michel's house.


PS Charlie and Bagel say thanks for letting them come.
Michael worked very hard to make Molly happy. He is very dedicated.
Charlie loves to go to Micheal's. He gets out of the car and heads right for the door. Michael takes excellent care of him.
Michael takes very good care of Charlie. He has stayed there more than once.
Charlie had his second visit to Michael's house and play time with Samone. He had a great time . He must of played a lot because he had to take a 3 hour nap when he got home. Michael takes very good care of Charlie and spoils him just like he was at home. I highly recommend Michael as a loving place to leave your pet. You won't be disappointed.
Charlie had a great time at his stay with Michael and Simone. His only problem was he only ate what Michael fixed for him. Otherwise known as people food. Charlie knows how to get what he wants. Spoiled dog!!! It was so nice to not have Charlie staying in a crate for 5 days. I highly recommend Michael to care for anybody's dog and Simone too. They treat their guest as royalty.
