About Michael

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Recent M.S. graduate searching for additional income. My hope is to return to a protected area management position in Sub-Saharan Africa in Spring 2017. I am a 30-year-old active male who loves being outside more than inside. Returned Peace Corps Volunteer from Cameroon (11'-13'). I have been a caregiver for humans (babysitting, assisted living) and provide the same care for other species. My current residence is spacious and close to parks and trails. I prefer to talk in voice and would love to answer any and all questions.

I don't have a facebook, but here is my linkedin if you're worried about me not being a human: https://www.linkedin.com/in/mburbidge

Michael and his wife took excellent care of my cats! I can't say enough kind words about them! He was very good with my cats and was able to provide them with much appreciated attention. I will definitely have them vacay with them again!
Mike was great with my dog. He kept me updated on how she was doing. We will definitely use him again.
Michael was great with my dog for a long 4 night stay. He ran with Alpha on multiple occasions and let him lay out back by the lake. I would definitely recommend Michael to others.
