About Mike

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We understand the challenge in finding someone to look after your fur-baby; we're thrilled to help anyone else out who share the same concerns. We are on the west end of Miss and we're 15 min from the airport and the 403/7 is close by.

There's a park behind our house that we go to a couple times a day with a parkway for a longer stroll and an 3 off leash parks 5 min by car. We also go to High Park and Jack Darling park for the furbabies to run and socialize, while still under our supervision.

It is our intention to care for your babes, we will give them the care and attention they get at home, a fun mini vacation for them too. We make our own dog treats, no store purchased treats for us and we use also use hypoallergenic shampoo for our furbabies. We are aware of allergy concerns and take them seriously.

There's never a dull moment with them and would love the company.

Very happy in my experience with Mike. Sent me photos and it looked like she had a blast. House is clean, and they genuinely love making your pet comfortable and happy. Will see you guys soon!
First time we used dog vacay and Mike and Ben were absolutely amazing. We left our puppy with them during our vacation (10 days), and we didn't worry for one second. He had a great time with so much space and so many great parks around the house. They sent photo updates almost daily. Highly recommend them. And will book with them again in the future.

This is the second time I have used Mike to dogsit Appa and he was just as good as the first time. He kept me up to date with lots of pictures of Appa.
First time sending our puppy to a daycare to try out, Mike was fantastic, easy drop off, easy pick up and some very cute pictures to see during the day! Thanks Mike!
Absolutely wonderful! Mike and Ben are lovely humans who I felt comfortable with immediately upon meeting them a few days before the vacay. They are very knowledgeable, way more than I am, and have a very kind and welcoming demeanor. My dogs were a little mopey when we got home and I suspect it's because home is way more boring than their new vacation home. I've already booked another date for them to stay with Mike!

This was the first time I was leaving Kahlua with someone other than family. Mike made me feel very comfortable. Kahlua had a fabulous time. She didn't want to leave. For sure I'll be booking with Mike again!
We kept our dog, Mungchi with Mike and Ben for the second time. On both occasions we were very pleased with how Mungchi was treated, the environment he was kept in and with the care Mike and Ben provided. They kept in constant touch with us, sending us photos and captions on how he was doing - this was very reassuring. When we picked him up he was happy and clean! - They bathed him too! Thank you Mike and Ben! We would whole heartedly recommend them for your pet.

I have used kennels in the past, just to have my dog come home smelling, dirty and with kennel cough. It was such a pleasure to meet Mike and Ben and learn of their passion for taking care of a family's pet and loved one. Our dog Abby was pampered and spoiled for the almost two weeks she was with Mike and Ben. We received photo and video updates with cute descriptions. Most importantly, when we came to pick Abby up, while she was very excited to see us, she was calm and not in a rush to leave. At the kennels, she wants to bolt out of there, but here she was calm and content to stay until we were ready to leave. She was clean, well taken care of, and came home happy and healthy. Thanks Mike and Ben, for allowing us to enjoy our cruise without feeling even a little stressed about how our Abby was faring. I will definitely use your service and recommend you in the future.

We left our dog Senji with Mike for a week, and the experience was great! We were pretty anxious at first since Senji is a little nervous around strangers, but he warmed up to Mike pretty fast. The daily updates we got allowed us to enjoy our vacation without worrying about our dog.

I would definitely recommend Mike's place if you are going away. Senji had a great time playing in his backyard and had some playmates to keep him occupied. Mike is also very accommodating with feeding instructions. If we had to go away again, this is the first place we would leave Senji.

Mike was great with Cookie. He went above and beyond to accommodate my dog. Daily pictures and updates kept me calm during my vacation. Thank you again. Camelia
Mike was most helpful with helping me navigate the app which was not so easy. The meet and greet was just as expected and Mike put us at complete ease. He was very flexible with the pick up and drop off times. He and his 3 dogs were very friendly. Mylo even got to have their home made treats and had so much fun, he didn't want to come back home!! I have no doubt that I will be having them host Mylo next time I need to. I unreservedly recommend Mike to anyone looking for a safe, fun vacation for their pet with daily pictures being sent.

My kids and I were worried and concerned about leaving our baby Pancake for the first time, but Mike took a really good care of Pancake, sending updates made our day better and relieved that our baby was in good hands. Mike is a good person and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anybody who needs help to take care of their little one.

Mike took great care of Baxxter, he was very accommodating. He took the time needed to watch our dog including taking him to the park. Thanks again.
Our first vacay was with Mike. Our meet and greet went very well and was the determining factor as to who would being watching Max for the first time. We were very very happy with Max's stay. Mike is dedicated to his/our furry friends and will be working together in the future. Look no further!

I loved the personal messages and photo updates I received daily. Ringo and Chica looked very happy every second. I felt comfortable with my babies in their care. I would definitely bring Ringo and Chica back and highly recommend this sitter :-)
Mike and Ben were the best dog-sitters ever. We will definitely book all future VayCays with them and we are recommending then to our friends. They were responsible and loving with our pets, and sent pictures almost daily to put us at ease during our vacation. What can I say, our dogs are missing them so much that it took a day for them to start eating again when we picked them up. Can't recommend more highly!!!
Thank you Mike and Ben,
Michele

Our experience was amazing! We received daily pictures/videos letting know what our dog was up to. And she truly was taken care, we have already booked an upcoming stay for her. We highly recommend Mike!
This was our first time away from Abby for more than a day or two. Mike made it much easier and set us at ease with the frequent photo updates. It was clear in the photos that we received that Abby was having a wonderful time. I would definitely recommend Mike.

I recently had my eight month old Boston Terrier on vacay at Mike's.Mike and Ben were wonderful. They genuinely care and went above and beyond in looking after her, the result being a very happy and tired puppy.They are very good at what they do and I was very impressed with their attention to detail. I have already booked her next vacay with them and would definitely recommend them.

I received pictures and updates every day, and Atticus seemed tired and happy when I picked him up. Nothing like having other dogs to play with:-) It is no wonder that they're well booked: the home is very clean, the hosts are very attentive, and the back-yard is fully fenced. I will book with them again:-)

We are new to the area, with 2 small pups that have never been kennelled or on a 'vacay', so this was a very uneasy process for me personally to find the right fit. Meeting Mike and Ben was such a blessing for this nervous mama! We do not have children (yet) so these are our kids (meaning I can be neurotic). Not only did our dogs have a great time, but we also learned a few training tips; and I think our little Oliver has a new girlfriend (their Bella). Our 2nd vacay is already booked with them, and this time mama isn't nervous at all! I'd highly recommend them to anyone, and if you'd like to speak with me personally as a reference feel free to call 289-541-9597. We also received daily pics, we kept in constant contact if there were questions, or if I just wanted to check in. By far the best compliment I can give them though, is that you know they are loving pet owners themselves and naturally they bond with your babies too. Our pups came home happy with some better habits than when we dropped them off!!!

Ben and Mike were wonderful with our pug. Their dogs got along well with ours and he was in great spirits after enjoying a 3 day stay with them. (He's looking forward to the next visit.)
It's obvious Mike and Ben love the dogs. They are very accommodating and have a lovely yard area for the dogs to play.

We'll be back,
MJ&A

Mike and Ben thank you again, Charlie is looking forward to his next visit with you, his new Foster Parents :) I highly recommend Mike & Ben to anyone, 5 star for sure!!

We had an amazing experience with Ben and Mike. This was our first time using this service so we were initially hesitant of course. However Ben and Mike were extremely helpful and answered all our questions. We felt very comfortable leaving our 10 year old Lab, Runner with them for a week. Runner was very well taken care of and we got daily pictures and updates. We definitely recommend Ben and Mike and have already made another booking with them!

This was my first time using Dogvacay and wasn't sure how Appa would feel being in a stranger's home. But Mike and Ben were awesome foster parents to Appa. They were super friendly. It looked like at one point Appa didn't want to come home with me! I would definitely have Mike and Ben watch Appa again.

I brought my 8 month old puppy for a week and I was very happy. They have cared for as if it were their dog, two or three times a day they brought him to do the walk. They have always kept informed me and sent a lot of pictures and I really appreciate their efforts. I really recommend Mike and Ben, they are super!! See you soon. Diletta

Ben and Mike took excellent care of our Sonia, provided us with great pictures throughout her stay and were very quick and efficient at responding to email. Would definitely recommend!
Thank you Ben and Mike for caring for Chico. They were awesome hosts. We received daily photo and video updates and Chico had a blast. Chico made lots of friends at the dog park. Ben and Mike have a lovely home. I would definitely recommend Ben and Mike as hosts and use them again in the future!

Thanks again you both were great!

Both my Dachshunds stayed with Mike&Ben for a night when we had to get away from town for a night. Neither of my dogs were used to spending a night away from their home and this was their first experience...hence you can imagine how anxious I was. However, I must mention that Kookie and Ginger were well looked after. Am glad we found Mike&Ben.

Our dogs had a great time with Ben and Mike. They are very personable guys and obviously LOVE dogs. Their home is clean and welcoming and super dog friendly. Their dogs are so adorable and our boys liked them right away. I would definitely recommend Ben and Mike and we will definitely be using their service again!

Was very impressed with Mike and Ben. Felt very comfortable trusting them with my dog. He came back tired and completely content. Could tell he was cared for and stimulated. Would use them again in a heartbeat.
Our dog Snowy had a fantastic time with Ben and Mike. We were updated everyday about how snowy was doing. And that put my mind to ease as this was the first time our dog had ever stayed with anyone other than family, I felt very comfortable with Mike and Ben from the moment we met them. Very warm and friendly. We will be using them again for sure!

First time using this service and Ben & Mike made me feel comfortable right from the start, it looked like she had a great time from all the pictures they sent while we were away and she was great when I picked her up (very convenient drop off/pickup times) thanks Ben & Mike, I will definitely be using them again when I need a place for Sugar

Ben & Mike are excellent hosts! They are very nice people, have a beautiful and clean house and 3 adorable dogs. My dog stayed with them during 2 weeks and I received frequent updates and pictures, also Mike answered kindly every question I asked while I was away... and most important, my dog came back home happy, healthy and very clean :) I would recommend Ben & Mike to everyone looking for a good host for their dog.

Ben and Mike were awesome taking care of Buddy. I went on a vacation for 12 days and over my time away they sent me regular pictures of Buddy and messages letting me know how he was doing. This gave me peace of mind while I was away. When I went to pick up Buddy he looked very happy and he came smelling even better than how I left him! They really took good care of him. And they were also very flexible with my times for leaving him and picking him up. I would strongly recommend Ben and Mike as they were fantastic!
