About Michele

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a Kindergarten teacher by day, dog and horse lover and owner by evenings and weekends. I work part time in the summer which allows for a very flexible schedule during those months.

I have been watching dogs in my home and walking dogs in my neighborhood for years. I am very skilled at giving pills to dogs and cats and can even give subcutaneous injections as needed (per diabetics).

I only accept last minute bookings for dogs that I know or have met before. If your dog is a new guest please allow enough time to schedule a Meet-N-Greet. I do not accept dogs that are not spayed or neutered. Sorry:(

I also give discounts for repeat customers and extended stays. :)

Mops always feels so at home with Michele. It's the peace of mind that allows me to travel and not worry that he is in a loving home.
Michele was awesome! We were nervous to leave our dog Ringo for a 6 day trip, but Michele put us at ease with daily updates and pics. Will definitely be contacting Michele in the future for pet sitting services!
Mops felt like he was at home! Michele is the best.
We left our lab mix with Michele while my son and I took an out of town trip. We are new to the area, and our dogs are part of our family, so we were looking for just the right place to leave our Izzy while we traveled. We were VERY happy with all aspects of our experience. Michele was very accommodating and helpful. She made sure she had all the details of Izzy's care needs and kept in close touch with us, sending daily pictures of our Izzy's adventures and keeping us well informed. My husband took our dog home for the weekend in the middle of our trip, then back to stay with Michele a few more days, and Izzy was very happy and willing to go back, as though she had been having a lovely time there.:) Izzy came home to us clean and happy and healthy. I would definitely recommend Michele and use her again!
Michele did a great job walking my dog. She was responsive to instructions and sent a picture from the walk. My dog really seems to like her, which is great.
Michele is a great dog sitter. She accommodated our schedule for pick-up/ drop-off. My dog seemed to really like her. The pictures from Michele were very nice to know how my dog was getting along. Michele did a great job.
Michele took such great care of our dog -- I really can't speak highly enough of our experience with her. I felt like she was incredibly attentive to everything we told her beforehand (eg, mealtimes, walk routines, etc), and she sent lots of pictures and updates throughout the stay that let me know our sweet pup was having a great time. Our dog is getting a little old, so I feel very grateful to have someone so caring and trustworthy nearby. Thank you, Michele!
Michele V is a wonderful, caring person. I trust her completely with Jenna.
Michele sent me pictures of my pup each day and gave me a few details of what they did that day which was nice. She was extremely flexible with pick up/drop off which was appreciated!
Shell is very mindful of what Shanti, my adopted miniature poodle, needs ...attention, a lap to sit in, walks, more attention, more snuggles... and is absolutely wonderful with him. Shell also does not give Shanti people food, per my request, gives him plenty of exercise and it is obvious when picking him up that he had a good time and felt safe (this is a big thing with Shanti, as he was adopted from an abusive environment).
I am completely comfortable leaving my Shanti with Shell.
Wonderful. Sophie loved it there
Lucky had another fantastic stay with Michele! He is a happy dog. We will continue to use her as long she is available. Excellent host.
Michelle V is a very nurturing and caring person. I have no reservations about leaving my pet with her.
Our dog loves staying with Michele. She is great with him. This is our 3rd visit and will likely not be the last.
Our dog Lucky had a terrific time with Michele. It is such a relief to know that our dog is happy when we are on an extended vacation. Michele is a wonderful host and communicated and shared pictures throughout our time away.
Michele V is a wonderful host. She is warm, caring, and personable. My dog, Jenna, feels right at home every time she stays with Michele. I would highly recommend Michele.
Michele was fantastic and most importantly Cleo was comfortable! After our initial visit I had no reservations concerning leaving my dog with Michele.
This was the first time I have left my furkid with someone other than a friend or family. Michele was very nice during our meet and greet and helped to ease my nerves about leaving him with someone new. She sent me pictures throughout the weekend to make sure I knew he was doing well. I would absolutely recommend her and will certainly use her again in the future.
Our dog, Lucky, was happy and secure staying with Michele. We would definitely recommend her care.
Michele was an excellent host and provided a warm and inviting home for Jenna. Jenna easily warmed up to her and I had no reservations in leaving her with Michele. I would most definitely reserve Michele again and highly recommend her to others.

Great experience all around. There is absolutely no other place that I would think of leaving my baby. Sometimes I think she takes better care of Titus than I do.
Our dog Lucky had a great stay with Michele. While he wasn't happy to be left, she made him feel welcome with car rides and lots of walks. We will definitely use her again. Knowing he is well cared for and happy is great peace of mind when we are away.
Michele treated my old pup Scrappy as if he was one of her own. He requires insulin shots as well as a special diet and she treated both very well. Scrappy came home happy and worn out. I would definitely be comfortable to have Scrappy stay over again.
Michele was great! She was very accommodating and I felt my dog was in good hands.
This has become my dog's second home. Shelly is a wonderful caregiver that can be trusted to give your pet a warm, loving and fun experience while you are away.
Michele was great to work with! She was very flexible about when I could pick up and drop off my dog and even offered to have him come the night before for free so he had time to settle in. She sent pictures throughout my dog's visit and indulged his somewhat high maintenance tendency to think he is one of the humans. Her relaxed attitude about any embarrassing bad habits my dog has definitely made me feel at ease!
Oh my goodness, Michele is amazing! She cared for Titus as if he was her own. She was knowledgeable, professional, friendly and nurturing. I won't leave my dog with anyone else!
Michele was very flexible with our schedule and extremely helpful in taking in our pup at the last minute... he came home tired and really seemed to enjoy his vacation with Michele and Chula.
