About michele

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I specialize in small dogs: Small adult dogs, small senior dogs, and puppies. I will be available to take your reservations from 7:00 am until 8:00 pm seven days a week. You may instant book at any time (24/7). I look forward to meeting you and your pup(s)! I take loving care of your babies! I offer a very special boarding experience! Almost all of my local pups are regulars at Puppy Palace! I have taken care of these pups for years now, and the pups get to know each other. Not only do the pups know and love my Sam (shih poo) and Gabe (shih tzu), but they get to know and love the other guest pups! We are one big happy family!! The pups feel right at home, and they always have a wonderful time. They are my babies, and I love them dearly!

We live in a 2,700 sq. ft. home in a beautiful, very safe neighborhood with 1-3 acre lots. It's a great place to walk dogs! We walk dogs every morning and evening (unless, of course, pups are too old or frail to walk). The pups have 8 "potty breaks" during the day, more if necessary! My house has an open floor plan with tile and hardwood floors, which makes cleanup easy. I keep the house clean at all times. We have a large fenced front yard where dogs can run and play. We also have a 6 foot fence around our large backyard. When I take the pups outside, I am always outside with them; pups never stay outside even for a minute without me being right there!

I am a highly responsible, caring pet momma, who will love your pets and take good care of them. I watch your pets at all times! I'm extremely careful and vigilant. I always err on the side of caution. We do not use any toxic chemicals on our property (e.g., synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides...), so your pets are completely safe! Both house and yard are puppy-proof!! I poop scoop the yard at least 3 times a day.

Booking policy: The $30 fee is for a 24 hour period. Hours over the 24 time period will be prorated or a daycare fee will be charged. Please let me know drop off and pick up times.

I accept drop offs as early as 6: 00 am and pick ups as late as 9:00 pm.

Please bring a copy of your pet(s) vaccination records. Please bring enough food for your pets' stay. Optional: You may also bring bowls, toys, dog beds, chew bones, etc. I strongly recommend "stuffingless" toys and/or heavy duty "indestructible" dog toys for vacays.

Pups must be on flea preventative.

If you message me on the DogVacay site, the message will automatically roll to my phone. This is a faster way to reach me than email. I do check email often throughout the day.

I look forward to caring for your pets!!
We are big animal lovers, and we will give your pets the very best care!

Thank you and take care,

It is always hard to leave your dog for a trip, but Michele makes it easy because my dog knows her pups now and wags her tail and says hi like they are part of the family!
We were in Memphis for five weeks. Dogvacay and Michele were a godsend . Our dog is 15 years old and he has never been in a kennel . We felt very comfortable leaving our boy with Michele . She sent updates and pic. Our baby seemed happy to go to her house and fine when we picked him up. Michele seemed to understand my Harlen needs and made him comfortable . My husband and I were able to go see sights several times furring our stay with out worrying about our baby. I would recommend Michelle to anyone needing a sitter.
Michele was an amazing host to my 11 month old Boston terrier! She sent photos & emails daily! Dottie got lots of cuddles & warm places to curl up & sleep. Dottie had lots of outdoor time to play! When we picked Dottie up she was vibrant & happy! She's acted just the same as she did before we left her, unlike the trauma of staying locked in a cage at the vet. We will always use Michele's services!
