About Miguel

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there,

I'm the leader and care giver of two sweet and at times obnoxious dogs. They were both rescued from a shelter. I house trained them, as well as trained them to be on and off leash. I've also taught them a few tricks along the way. No choke collars were used just patience and positive body language. The success of their transition from shelter dogs to good ole boys wouldn't have been possible without the help of my fiancee Jessica! Her and I will both take care of your dog(s).

I run my on-line business from home and live in a very dog friendly community with lots of space for your furry friend(s) to run, play, and socialize! There is practically a huge dog park 20 yards from my front door. I'm sure your dog would love that! Our apartment will comfortably fit a dog up to 45 pounds, dogs who are bigger than that don't do well here. That said, I'm willing to visit your home and look out for the big dog(s).

If they have lots of energy, I can take them for a run, a bike ride, or teach them how to run along side my skateboard. I can manage dogs with leash anxiety as well as those who are very strong and like to pull. Regardless of your furry friends personality I will treat them as if they are my very own and provide them with an enjoyable experience. Jessica is great at making sure their harnesses are removed before bedtime, refilling water bowls, and maximizing play time.

We look forward to working with you!

All the best,

Miguel & Jessica

Miguel lives in an ideal place for dogs. His apartment is situated in a complex that has plenty of grassy areas and lots of doggy neighbors.

He has two great pups himself, one is an older rescue and the other is a younger peppy pup! His home is a safe and clean space that is just a few seconds walk to a common area where dogs in the neighborhood meet to play as well!
Miguel and Jesse are awesome! My dog really loved their two pups! He seemed really happy when I came to pick him up. And Miguel accommodated my early drop off time.
Miguel was an amazing host for our boy Wesley. He was easy to communicate with and sent us lots of pics of Wes throughout the stay. He seemed to be very attentive and kind to Wes. We will definitely be using him again!
Miguel is awesome - and my dog LOVES him. I'll feel so comfortable leaving him with Miguel moving forward when I go away on vacation!
Miguel treated diesel like his own... He was there for a long time, Miguel was really great with Diesel. He got a ton of exercise, had company with his two friendly dogs, and even got to sleep on their bed! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a loving, reliable and communicative dog vacay!
Manny had a wonderful time with Miguel, his fiancee, and their two pups: Jet and Oye. Their cute apartment complex has a little dog park, which Manny apparently loved. He came home tired and happy after lots of play and cuddles. I absolutely plan to book with Miguel again
Miguel is awesome! He's a real dog whisperer and has been helping our difficult dog with her annoying habits. I absolutely recommend him without reservation!!
Miguel and his fiancee Jessie looked after our dog, Ellie, over the weekend while we were moving, and I'm so glad they were able to take her! They have two awesome little dogs of their own, and they had another guest dog, so Ellie got to hang out with a pack! (: I know she was well taken care of and if we need daycare or walking in the future, we'll definitely be reaching out again.
Miguel was awesome, he took great care of Piper. I definitely recommend his services as a dog sitter.
Magic had a wonderful time with Miguel! I know where she will go next time! Thank you Miguel!!!!!
Miguel was THE BEST DOG WALKER I HAVE EVER HIRED. He took excellent care of my eldest dog who had gotten bit by another dog and needed a surprise surgery two days before we left for our trip. I was so worried at first to leave with my dog injured, but Miguel made me feel like I was right there with my dog the whole time. By the time I got back home, my dog was completely healed and ready to play which was a huge relief on my end. In addition to being a doctor to my injured eldest dog, Miguel also taught my youngest (and extremely high energy) Doberman to skateboard with him! I normally would be wearisome of someone who doesn't know my Doberman to walk with him, have him off leash and try adventurous things like skateboarding, but Miguel really knew how to handle his breed and size from our first meet and greet.

I could not recommend hiring Miguel more. He listened and did all of the things I asked of him, which were a lot. He even made time out of his Thanksgiving day and engagement party to come walk my dogs! He kept up all the training we have put in place for both our dogs and even taught me a thing or two. If you are looking for a dog sitter that your pet will love while you are away, make sure to book with Miguel before someone else does.

Seriously THE BEST!

Thank you, Miguel

I'm quite excited to have found not only dog lover, but dog whisperer, Miguel! I had never used him before but have used plenty of other walkers/sitters and I have to say hands down my pups grizzly and I are super fans of him and his "pack". :) He's got two amazingly well behaved dogs himself. He sent awesome pics of them hiking and playing and socializing. More than I expected! We are definitely going to be repeat clients. Highly recommended!
