About Michael

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Experienced dog sitter with a fenced in back yard. I have a 5 year old white female english bulldog who is a absolute couch potato, drama queen and princess all rolled into one. She gets along great with other dogs.

I was involved with Pug Rescue for many years and was a foster home for several hundred dogs.

I have been a host home with DogVacay for several years, and can provide great references.

Michael was excellent to our Cane Corso puppy Cesar. He was more than accomodating to our needs! I will definiteky be using him again. While Cesar was away he kept my husband and I updated with photos and videos. P
Michael was awesome! This was our first time using the app so we were very skeptical. Michael let us come do a meet and greet and made us feel much more comfortable about leaving our puppy with him. Layla had just been spayed, and he paid extra attention to her. He also kept us updated throughout our trip. We will definitely be using him again in the future!
Billy had a great time with Mike and Daisy. I feel more comfortable with someone who love their dog like I do than a boarder that has 60 plus dogs in their care with 2-3 workers. Billy was free to roam the house and sleep where he wanted just like his home. Thank you Mike for watching Billy. He will be back for a visit again.
Michael was a wonderful host for Buddy and Cocoa. He opened his home for us and treated them like family. He was even understanding with Buddy, who doesn't' like people very much, especially strange men. Thank you, Mike, for your care. I would be happy to take my "kids" to his home again!
I was a first timer but definitely will bring Molly back !!!
Giorgio loves going to Michael's house. He is very good with him and flexible. Always a good experience!
Michael is easy going, accommodating and very helpful. Toby was very happy in his home I even got pictures showing how much fun he was having.
Toby will be back at Michael;s the next time I need a sitter because I was 100% comfortable with him taking care of my furbaby. D~
Michael was great with Clyde ! He sent me pictures and videos the entire time which is definitely comforting and Clyde will be visiting every so often for more vacays!
The house is clean and well kept. The dogs are defiantly the center of the home. I felt very comfortable leaving my fur baby there for our extended trip and will do so again and again. The photo updates are much appreciated and much needed. Michael is a great host and his own little fur baby is a living doll!
I'm so thankful that I found someone that I can trust to watch my three dogs! I have two rambunctious beagles and one female lab, Chloe, who is slow to trust new people. Well, Chloe immediately took to Michael and I felt incredibly at ease knowing they were in good hands. My favorite part was getting texts and videos - boarding places don't do that and everyone I got one it would put a HUGE smile on my face. Michael is also extremely quick to respond, so when I checked in on them, he would get back to me immediately. I would say on a scale of 1-10 I'm a 12 when it comes to being a helicopter parent to my dogs and Michael really helped me feel at ease leaving them for the weekend.

I will definitely be re-booking with him for all my future trips!
Michael is always flexible and tries to work with my strange schedule. This was another instance where he fit us in with no problems. Coco loves going to his house and that makes me feel good about leaving her there.
Michael is a terrific host and Coco loves going to his place and hanging out with Daisy and the other pack members who are visiting. Michael goes out of his way to accommodate our needs. He's given Coco medicine and even lets her snuggle up on his bed. :) She's definitely at home there, which puts me at ease.
Michael had a nice place for the dogs and they was kind to drop them both off to my mom. I would use his services again. Thanks Michael.
Savannah loved being with Mike and Daisy. He was very caring and concerned with the needs of my older Pug with skin issues.I never thought we would feel so comfortable leaving our darling with anyone.Knowing that dogvacay is so careful in choosing hosts made us feel very comfortable.Thanks,again,Mike!!!
We love leaving our dog with Michael. He is easy to work with, kind, and dependable. Our westie starts whining with excitement whenever we get near his house, and always happily trots right in when she gets there. She comes back to us happy and healthy. Highly recommended!!!
Michael is very nice and was very welcoming.
He took really good care of our dog Harry this week-end and was perfectly fine and comfortable administrating his medication by injection.
We were very happy with our experience with dogvacay as well and we will be not hesitate to let Michael watch harry in the future.
Thanks a lot for everything Michael :-)
This was our 2nd vacay for Giorgi at Michaels. He is great with our dog and has a great house for animals to enjoy themselves. Giorgi loves it there!
Michael was wonderful with Giorgi! He comes back healthy and happy.
Coco loves going to stay with Michael and Daisy!! I know she's getting lots of love and attention with them.
Amelia loves staying with Michael and Daisy. He had to carry her to my friend's car when she picked her up for us, so I feel very good about leaving her with Michael. I would recommend Michael to anyone.
Michael is the man! Very accommodating, our yellow lab pup was happy to leave us and happy when we picked her up. Will definitely stay in touch with Michael.
He was wonderful with my dogs. Went out of his way to deliver them to our kennels so we could get home on time. Very nice home and yard for them to stay in. Thanks Michael!
Coco had a great time with Michael and Daisy!. She had so much fun she forgot that she was sick!
Our second visit with Michael and Daisy and great once again. Michael is super easy to work with and Coco enjoys the company!
Michael has been really great to work with! As a new puppy owner and a business owner who travels frequently, my biggest source of stress was finding a puppy sitter. Michael has a very clean home with a great yard. When my dog Lacey goes for a visit there she doesn't want to leave. So when I'm traveling on business I'm able to focus on business and not have to have to worry about my puppy. He sends updates with videos and pics and he is very flexible. Highly recommend!
As always, my dogs love going on vacay here. They are loved and cared for as if they lived there. Great fenced yard too!!!
Michael has been watching our Goldendoodle for about 2 years. He's an excellent host (along with Daisy) and has a really clean home. He sends regular updates and our dog is always happy to go for a visit. Highly recommended.
Michael and Daisy took great care of Coco and she had a lot of fun! Michael sent pictures during the stay to keep me posted and he was super flexible with my changing schedule.
