Michelle and her family are amazing! They are caring, sweet and easy to talk to. I received regular updates about my Mocha and a few snapshots as well! Mocha became a part of their family during her stay. It was her home away from home.

Thanks Michelle!
Gryffin was very happy at Michelle's house. She and her husband are warm loving hosts. We will be back!
Michelle and her family were great! Lulu had a good time playing with her dog Charlie and the family.
I loved all the pictures Michelle sent me.
Michelle was very flexible on drop off and pic up time.
They took such great care of my dog I'm booking another stay with them today.
I would absolutely leave my Fitz with Michelle again. She and her entire family were kind, welcoming, and friendly. Fitz was nervous about being left at first, Michelle was patient and understanding. She even texted me photos throughout the day, I loved that. Absolutely would recommend to any of my friends and family
I’m really satisfied with Michelle as my dog’s babysitter.
Michelle is an excellent person, and she took care of Texas
as if he was one of her dogs.
Texas was taken care so well, he was so happy to be with
Michelle that he didn’t want to leave her house when I went
to pick him up.
Good Job Michelle!!!
Michelle and her family took good care of Seska. True to her word, Michelle sent photos of her during her stay which reassured me that all was well.
We had to travel out of state for my Dad's funeral and their attention helped make a difficult situation more comfortable. Our dog enjoyed their fenced yard, sleeping where-ever she wanted, and the play time with the other dogs.
We used the service while our bathroom was being worked on. Baxter was happy to make new friends and Michelle's family sent pictures during the day.
Michelle is a great host. My dogs always come home happy!!!
My puppy had a great time at Michelle's house,he went home happy and healthy. Michelle and her family are very reliable and nice. We forgot the leash at her house, and she drove to our house to sent the leash. We will definitely choose Michelle to take care of our puppy in the future.

Very warm and welcoming couple. They treated my dog rocky as if he was their own. Thanks for the comfort :)
Lana and Sookie enjoyed their stay with Michelle. They came home happy and well rested. Michelle and David did an excellent job caring for them. We will definitely book again with them when we have the need.
We were very happy with the care that Michelle and her family provided to our dog Ivy. We received lots of pictures ,and Michelle made us feel very secure. We knew our dog was in good hands!
Bea enjoyed her second stay with Michelle. We enjoyed getting the regular text and photo updates. The drop off and pick up were effortless.
Michelle was absolutely wonderful and I would definitely leave my precious pup in her care again.
Michelle and her family watched our two dogs for six days - the longest we have gone without our pups - and I am completely confident they were well cared for and treated as part of the family. Our dogs couldn't be more different, making taking care of them more of a challenge. Our independent one was given her space and our needy one was given the love and attention he so desperately wants! Michelle kept us updated with messages and pictures daily, which was a huge help to our peace of mind.
Our dog, Arxhie, had a great time with Michelle and her family. He was welcomed into their home, couches, and beds like part of the family. Archie was able to be very active and had a lot of fun with the other dogs. He is now exhausted! He was definitely not forgotten about.

Michelle sent us photo updates and texts. She was also flexible about drop off and pick up times and allowed us to bring Archie's crate and bed as well.

Had a great experience!
Michelle and her family took wonderful care of Kai. He had a great time and came home happy. She sent us updates and photos throughout our whole trip. And we were able to enjoy our vacation with peace of mind knowing that he was in good hands. I highly recommend her.
I am so grateful to Michelle and her family for taking such great care of our pup Layla. I was worried at first about how she would get along being in a new environment but Michelle made her feel at home and kept us up to date the entire time with texts and pics : ) A day into the visit, Layla felt at home and was happy as can be! I could tell Michelle and her family accepted her into their home and treated her and enjoyed her as they would one of their own dogs. Layla even missed them when she returned home! Thanks so much Michelle for taking such great care of Layla! To everyone considering Michelle to take care of your furry family members, rest assured they will be loved and in good hands : )
Michelle and her family took such wonderful care of our dog. Sammy was so happy and felt right at home! Michelle kept us updated and sent us pictures often. They were kind enough to take him to the dog park which he enjoyed. Sammy was all smiles! As we were leaving to go home, he ran to their car to hop in, so he definitely was comfortable and happy with them! We thank them for their kindness and warmth not only to Sammy but to us as well. We will definitely use them again!!
ralphy our terrier mix stayed with Michelle and her whole family for a week while we were in Florida on vacation. She kept us informed with regard to his stay and his daily routine every day. She not only emailed us daily pictures but also sent us daily texts about him. The attention she gave our dog was truly amazing. I recommend her to everyone and will be using her again.
I was happy I brought my dog Charlie to Michelle. She seems very nice. Charlie had lots of companions between the kids and their dog. Charlie seemed happy and healthy when I picked him up.
The family is very friendly, and they take care my dog very well. I feel very comfortable to leave my dog to them.
Michelle and her family took care of our two greyhounds for a week on short notice, and they did a great job! Michelle's entire family seemed to be very involved in the daily care, and I felt like the dogs always had someone to keep them company no matter the hour of the day. They were patient with our three-legged special needs pup, giving him his medication as prescribed, attending to his issues and making him comfortable in their house. It's obvious that they care a great deal for each dog that they have in their house, and make sure each of them are getting the attention they need. What a great family!
I let Michelle watch my poodle this past week for an unexpected trip to florida. She and her family put my mind at ease instantly by sending me current updates and pictures of my dog. She made me feel so comfortable seeing pictures of her kids interacting with Bella. Her family is warm and super caring. I know they made Bella feel at home! I would highly recommend Michelle and her family to anyone going away without there pet. I will def be using her to watch Bella again! I am so thankful and glad I found you guys!
I Just wanted to thank Michelle & her family who watched my two dogs over this past Christmas 2014 for doing such an excellent job. They did a tremendous job since my dogs are on a special diet as well as both require a few pills per day because of health issues. I also asked them to email me directly every day "which they did" on how they were doing since both of them were put on a new medication just before I left. This gave me piece of mind since I was out of the country. I would highly recommend that if you need someone to watch your dogs when you are away to go and meet Michelle. I would definitely use them again and have highly recommended them already to friends who will be traveling over the coming months.
Thanks again for taking such great care of Bentley & Remy.


Trixie had a great time with Michelle! Trixie recently injured her knee ligaments so we were a bit weary about leaving her with others...but Michelle was very attentive to her condition and assured us that she would be taken care of. She was comfortable giving her joint supplements and pain meds if needed. She text me and sent me pictures of Trixie during the vacation. She is also very flexible with her drop off/pick up time. I will not hesitate to use her again!
We had to book a last minute out of town trip and our usual DogVacay Host was not available. We sent a request to Michelle who immediately responded and accepted our request. Within 1 day we were able to have a meet and greet and introduce Hobo, our chocolate lab, to cute little Charlie, Michelle's King Charles Spaniel. They got along famously! Michelle was gracious and accommodating and left us feeling that we were leaving Hobo in good hands! We received text messages daily giving us updates on Hobo and how he was getting along. With Michelle's teenagers playing with him, I don't think Hobo missed us at all! I highly recommend Michelle and family! Your pooch will be in good hands. Michelle, thanks again for accommodating us on extremely short notice. You're the best!
