About Michele

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Michele and I love dogs. Beau, Joey, & Teddy live here and they love other dogs, and are very easy going. We have a fenced in yard to to explore. I am always out in the yard with your dog. I work full time and I am home for lunch to care for the dogs. I am also close to Midway Airport.
I have over 35 years experience in the pet care industry. I can work with young and old dogs. Medication is not a problem. I have experience with dogs who have special needs and physical challenges.
Our guests are treated with great paws on experience. If your dog is allowed full run of the house, or allowed on the furniture, they will have it here. I will also work with your dog as you have trained them. Play time, toys, walks, and naps are enjoyed. How your dog is treated at home is how it will be treated here, feeding, and walk schedule, etc. We look forward to meeting your dogs on a Meet n Greet.
Holidays are the busiest time in the pet care industry. I encourage pet parents to plan ahead.
I do require a Meet N Greet prior to a reservation for a new guest. I also require proof of vaccinations, and your dog(s) must be on heart-worm medication and a seasonal flea preventative.
I do not accept dogs with any aggression issues.
I also am available to do daily visits in your home if you have a cat (s) and live in nearby. I can custom quote for those services.

Michele is a very loving and caring boarder. She really knows dogs. I have had a few challenges with one of my dogs and she has been EXTREMELY patient and helpful. I wouldn't consider taking my dogs anywhere else. She truly is the best!!!
My Stinkabinka had an awesome time with Michelle. I appreciated that she sent pictures of him each night and was at ease with his response to me when I returned to get him.
Our pups' stay with Michele was wonderful! We started with a meet and greet at her home where the dogs were free to roam the common areas, learn the scents and we also were acquainted with the backyard, which served a place of great fun for our scents and we also were acquainted with the backyard, which served a place of great fun for our dogs during their stay. Michele knows dogs and understands their needs. She creates a safe and dog-friendly environment that allowed our dogs to feel at home while they were away. Michele was sure to send photo updates and it was great to see how much fun the dogs were having! We have a few trips in the coming year and we will certainly be booking with Michele again!
