About Michele

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I love all animals, worked in a veterinary hospital in my 20’s. I've had dogs, cats, guinea pigs, turtles, lizards, fish, all my life.

Your pet will feel right at home and well cared for. You can be assured that your pet will get individual attention, lots of play and exercise, and the same level of TLC you provide at home!

I will not accept any more overnight guests from DogVacay than I can comfortably handle. This will allow me to spend the quality time that each guest deserves. I can play fetch for hours or just sit and cuddle. Or other activities like belly rubs, a good brushing, playing with toys, house play, etc. al.

My lovable black lab gets along with all dogs, cats, and most critters. She is very gentle and laid back, after a few minutes of excited “get to know you” sniffs and love grunts. She wants to be friends with everyone.

Most of my days are spent at home, with the exception of some errands, outings with friends and volunteer activities. Your pup will have very little unsupervised time.

My son lives with me and enjoys playing with the dogs and helps care for them. 2 laid back, loving, human companions for the price of one :) We are both very respectful of each dogs needs.

I live in a quiet, centrally located neighborhood with easy access to I-35 in Shawnee Ks. I have a large, grassy backyard with 2 large oak trees and a 3 foot chain link fence so there is plenty of room for your pets to run and play. There are 4 steps from the door to the the patio, leading to a large chain link fenced back yard. An air conditioned house, and when it is nice enough to turn the air off I leave the back door open, giving the dogs free run of the yard and house. and when it gets really hot i have Foster and Smith doggy pool I'll set up for them.

Drop off and pick up hours are mutually agreed upon. You will need to bring your pets food and treats for the duration of their stay, If you kennel them, please bring it. And if you choose, you are welcome to send a favorite toy, or anything else that will help them feel at home. all pets must be up to date on vaccinations, flee and worm free.

Thank you. I look forward to meeting you and making your best friend ~my best friend.

NOTE: I now require all pet parents to fill out a DawgHaus form (helps us to decide if your pup would be a good fit in my home) and then have a meet-n-greet before accepting a reservation. Thank you for your understanding.

Being new to the area, we were thankful for Michele taking care of our 8 year old lab while we went away for a few days. She was very accommodating with drop off and pick up times. The daily texts with photo updates were appreciated too! Michele's with drop off and pick up times. The daily texts with photo updates were appreciated too! Michele's yard was a great size for play, clean spaces as well.

Michele's place is made for pet sitting! Large breeds, like my Greyhound, have plenty of room to play, lounge, and socialize. My dog loved his time at Michele's place.
This was the first time using a service to watch Madison (Lab/Great Dane). Michele was great and the experience was very positive. I received multiple pictures each day and one of Madison sprawled out on a bed resting. I will definitely use multiple pictures each day and one of Madison sprawled out on a bed resting. I will definitely use Michele again as I know Madison was is great hands and well taken care of.
