About Mike

9 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Mike and I've been a dog owner my entire life. I moved to Kansas City from Chicago for work in December 2014 and one of the biggest things I miss is having a dog around to hang out with. I've helped raise two dogs from puppies to adulthood and have experienced all of the highs and the lows of being a pet owner; I can handle any situation that may arise and know how to take care of your pet. I volunteer at Kansas City Pet Project, but am looking for an opportunity to better align pet care with my schedule.

It's important for dogs to feel comfortable around other people so I believe a quick meet and greet would be beneficial for both parties before any commitment is made. I live alone, in a carpeted apartment in Downtown Kansas City and your dog will have free range to walk around, sit, or sleep wherever it pleases. Your dog will receive a walk first thing in the morning, at lunch, and then a long walk at night once I am home from work. I am also free on weekends where your dog will receive my full attention.

I'll be fully accessible by phone and email so you will be able to ask for any updates while you are away. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Our 2 Boston Terrier's had a fantastic stay for a long weekend with Mike! In fact, they didn't want to come home!

Our Boston's have a special diet that requires special attention and preparation of their food. Mike was very accommodating and paid special attention to detail in this regard.

He kept us updated throughout the weekend on our dog's activities and even made a special trip home, so we could pick up our Boston's as soon as we returned from vacation!

We will have no hesitation in leaving our Boston's with Mike when we leave town again!

We had a great experience with Mike. He is very knowledgeable about dogs and took the time to get to know Nara. She was in good hands while we were away. We will definitely use him again in the future.
Mike was amazing to our dog Bela. She was immediately comfortable with him and seemed just as happy when we came back.
We had no worries leaving her with him. He administered her medication as instructed and was always quick to respond whenever I contacted him to make sure that Bela was doing fine.
I would definitely use him again and recommend him to others.
