My name is Michelle. My love for pets is what sparked me to enter the wonderful world of pet sitting. I have been a dog walker/dog sitter and have been boarding dogs for 10+ years. I understand the importance of trusting someone to care for your "kids".

I will stick to your schedule, sleeping, eating and walking. Your pooch will have so much fun they are sure to want to come back and play! Daily updates with pictures and videos will be posted via text or email so you can rest assured your pooch is in good hands!

I want to let you know that I do not take every request for booking. I'm very picky in choosing requests and I never take aggressive dogs. I want to ensure that your pooch is a good fit, making for a great time! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

I grew up with a household of furry friends! Many people thought our family was some what crazy for having so many pets! I have to say looking back we were a mini ZOO:") But I couldn't imagine my life with out them!! They brought so much joy and happiness to my family's life. Seeing their little faces everyday just puts a smile on my face!

I am a stay at home mom! I am married with 5 kiddos ranging from 22 to 4yrs old. Making for one busy family. We have 2 dogs named Tiffany and Remington. 2 cats named Kikki and Howey. They bring so much joy and happiness to our lives!!

We live in Glendora north of the 210 fwy against the beautiful Foothills. We have a 4 bedroom house on a quite cul-sac. Our backyard is split into 2 levels. The lower level has a great grassy area where the dogs can run and play. The upper level is our pool and gabazo area! The pool area is gated and locked at all times unless we are up there to enjoy the pool!! The 2 gates leading into the backyard are gated and locked at all times. Both gates have screens on them to allow for the the littlest of dogs!

We can't wait to meet you and your pets :)

Our girl is a handful and Michelle is great with her. We love knowing that Lucy is well taken care of when we have to leave her.
My kiddos enjoyed their first mini vacation with Michelle's family. Michelle was very open and flexible with their needs. Vacation pictures were updated frequently to keep me less worried and missing them too much. I highly recommend Michelle to care for the kids while you're away!
Michelle was accommodating and polite with us and our dog. Thank you, Michelle!
Michelle was great and my dog was happy when I picked him up. No complaints.
Kaya was happy and healthy after her stay with Michelle. We enjoyed seeing the photos each day. Thanks!
Michelle took great care of my two dogs. I could tell they enjoyed themselves and I loved the picture updates. She treats the guest dogs as her own and I love that my dogs get to sleep inside just like at home ????
Michelle was great with our pups!! They had a great time with her and her family and sent us pictures and updates throughout our vacation.... Thanks again!!
What a wonderful host!! Michelle put our minds at ease with photos and updates on our "baby". We trust Michelle enough to leave our dog with her for 2 weeks!!
Our experience with Michelle has been a very positive one. She is quick to respond and was very understanding when I had to cancel a reservation last minute. I would definitely recommend her to doggie sit. She was also very good with my little feisty Jake.
Our Zero had another great stay with Michelle & almost didn't want to come home! She sent us great photos of our lil guy while we were away letting us know that he was having a great time. We highly recommend Michel!!!
Beaumont had a terrific time at Michelle's! I can tell he was loved and felt safe. I loved receiving the photos of him at play with Michelle's golden retriever and the other dog that was there for a stay. While he was happy to see me when I picked him up, he was not ready to leave the people and dog friends he made during his overnight stay. Beaumont will definitely stay with Michelle again.
Michelle was a God send! Our puppy is spoiled rotten, and this was the first time we left her. Michelle sent us pics of her while we were gone. We were afraid she wouldn't want to come back home with us! Michelle took great care of our Delta, and we won't hesitate to leave her again.
Michelle, thank you very much for taking care of our dog wednesday. It was a great experience for us and it looks like she had a great time at your home. We will definitely keep you in mind should we need your services in the future.


Michelle is super responsive, caring, and flexible. I am a repeat customer, and I will certainly be back!
Michelle was great in caring for my German Shepard, Vima. Nice area for Vima to run and play with other dogs. Michelle is awesome, Vima seems to always have a fun time at Michelle's...highly recommended.
We've taken our pup to Michelle's several times. Always great, always wonderful. Keeps us updated. Amazing! :)
Michelle was great, she even sent pics while we were away. Our dogs really enjoyed their stay.
I have a Cavalier King Charles who is with me all of the time. Having him with a family and other furry friends worked out great for him and for us. Got him home after 7 days and he is calm and relaxed - not like he is craving crazy attention. He is content to be home yet not "needy" so it's obvious to me he got his fill of love and attention. Michelle is very warm and kept me informed with photos and updates. I would not hesitate to have our dear boy stay with Michelle again!
Michelle is the BEST! So reliable and always puts us at ease.
My dog is a female Boston Terrier named Bella. She is a sweet dog. We did a prescreening with Michelle and everything seemed good. We explained that Bella had lots of energy. We needed her to put up gates at her pool and door, so Bella would not run out. She said o.k. We went on our 7 day vacation and received updates from Michelle and pictures- everything seemed fine. When we returned and picked up Bella something was wrong. I picked up Bella and felt something hanging down from her stomach area. It was a piece of skin. Since it was already dark outside I couldn't really exam her. My wife asked Michelle was happened and she said it was a hot spot/scrape. After bringing Bella home we examined her closely. She had a big scab on her bellie about 2inch by 2 1/2. and numerous little pin like sores. I hate to leave this review because it is negative, but when I look at Bella's s stomach area I get mad.
Michelle is awesome and Bonzai looks forward to going to her house. She gets socialization, training, and has someone who cares about her well-being. We couldn't be more happy with this experience.
Michelle is the best and zero loves when he goes over. We had a long drive this trip and the pictures we received kept our minds at ease. She treats him like he is part of their family and we are never concerned about our lil guy when he is with her. We especially appreciate the pictures and updates. Thank you for being awesome!! He will be going back soon!
Michelle provided the best possible place for my pup to stay when I went out of town. He was always so happy to stay at her home in a friendly environment with good people and good pups to play with! Michelle sent pictures regularly and was very accommodating, even when I needed a sitter last minute. I wish I still lived in the area so she could be my pet sitter forever! I would not hesitate to recommend Michelle to anyone who needed a reliable, caring sitter for a pet.
Our dog, Ladybug, loves going to Michelle's house! She loves playing with the other dogs and gets lots of exercise. She stayed with Michelle for almost two weeks, and came back to us in good health. I think she was actually a little sad to come home to us after having a ball at Michelle's! Michelle is very flexible with drop off and pick up times, which is really helpful too.
Highly recommend Michelle! She is our "go to" dog sitter! I love that she sends pic and video updates. My pup always come home exhausted and Happy, so I know she's getting her exercise. Thanks for loving our Stevie, Michelle!!
This was our pup's first stay overnight somewhere other than our home! She did great and the pic/video Michelle sent me shortly after she got there said it all-- she was making herself right at home. I will definitely call on Michelle again for future dog sitting needs.
Michelle is very clearly a dog lover with a very big heart, and she provided our little rescue mutt with the perfect place to stay while my wife and I were overseas for a month+. Michelle texted photos and updates while we were away, and our dog was obviously very happy in her family's presence. There are few people that my wife and I would trust with our dog (because dogs are family!), and Michelle is definitely on this list. We are very pleased with the service she provided and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great, safe temporary home for you dog.
Michelle is always a great sitter!!
This was the first time we've left Harley anywhere with someone we didn't really know, but once we met Michelle we felt completely comfortable...Michelle even sent us picture of Harley and her dog Remy playing and having fun. we would definitely be using Michelle again very soon.
Michelle O made Sage feel right at home. It was a perfect place. Sage totally enjoy the family. Michelle O is totally qualified to care for dogs of any size.
This was our first time boarding our new dog. She was a rescue and not well socialized with others, so we were concerned especially since we would be out of the country. Michelle came over for an introduction before we chose her, and then again before we left just to make sure our Isabella was familiar with her. The whole stay couldn't have gone better. Isabella loved Michelle from he first meeting and was glad to see her on the first stay. Michelle sent text messages with pics daily and we could tell by the look on Isabella's face that she was happy and well taken care of.
Oakley had another great "vacation" with Michelle. He loves to have his friends to play with and Michelle is great about keeping us up to date with pictures of his time with her!
Michelle was great! Sent us lots of pictures and texts to let us know how Oakley was doing. Definitely recommend her and will be using her in the future.
Five stars to Michelle! Nikki had a great time at her house. I loved all the cute pictures she sent while we were on our trip. I have recommended Michelle to all my friends with dogs. She had the perfect yard for my dog Nikki, who loves to be outside to sit and play. I could tell Nikki had a good stay with Michelle and her kind family.
Another great stay for Jarvis!
Michelle and her family always take excellent care of our girl when we are out of town. I swear she is sad to come home when we pick her up!
I was very pleased with our experience with Michelle. She was attentive to our dog's special needs. Her home is very dog-friendly and and it seems that Shadow got plenty of TLC while he was there. Michelle kept in touch while we were gone and was very easy to communicate with before, during and after Shadow's stay. I will definitely trust her to take care of Shadow again the next time I need to travel.
Michelle was great as always. Our dog Jarvis spent 10 days with she and her family while we were out of the country. Consistent updates and notes letting us know how everything was going. She's our first choice when it comes to finding a safe place for our dog when we can't take him with us.
Great first use experience !!!!!!! Will use again
This was our second time having Michelle watch Jarvis. As soon as we pulled up to her house to drop him off he knew exactly where we were and pulled us to her front door excitedly. We loved receiving daily pics or videos daily of Jarvis and we're super comfortable leaving Jarvis with Michelle. We know he has a great time!
We're so glad we found Michelle! Using Dogvacay was new to us so we were a little nervous at first. However, Michelle made us feel at ease about it and our dog Jarvis had a wonderful time. She sent pictures and videos daily and gave us a little update on Jarvis' day. He loved running around their backyard and got along great with her dogs. Jarvis came home a tired pup after a weekend of fun!
Another great vacation for zero with Michelle and her family. He had a great time and loves going over when we leave.
This was my first time using DogVacay and my experience was excellent. The first host I reached out to never accepted/rejected my reservation request so I called a customer representative. They helped me right away and within a few hours, a few hosts contacted me letting me know they were available. I was really impressed by the efficiency of the site. I decided to go with Michelle and despite the late notice, everything worked out well. She was very accommodating and asked many questions about Lucas and what a normal day for him is like. Her house is lovely and her kids are adorable! Lucas seemed to have really enjoyed his stay there from what I could tell. I am considering taking Lucas back for daycare periodically just so he can interact more with children and other dogs instead of being stuck at home during the week while I'm at work. The only drawback is that the location is a bit inconvenient for me in relation to my work route. Anyway, I noticed that there was at least one other dog staying there at the same time (aside from Michelle's) but that doesn't bother me at all. As long as they're socialized, Lucas would just have more dogs to play with! Michelle sent me texts with pictures to keep me updated, which was really nice. Overall I was very satisfied, and would definitely recommend. :)
Michelle was awesome. This was my first Dog Vacay and I was very nervous leaving my two babies with a stranger. We did a meet and greet two days before. That went great... I dropped them off on Saturday morning and she was very thoughtful in emailing me updates and photos through out the day. My babies were having fun at her house. I came home early and picked them up first thing on Sunday and they were having too much fun with the resident dogs... We will use her again. I felt really good after I picked them up.
We decided to go out of town last minute for a family gathering. Michelle was kind enough to take Zero without much notice. She has a nice home and the backyard is very paw friendly. There were a few other dogs there and they all were happy and got along well. She took the time to ask questions about Zero to get to know him a little bit before we left.

During the weekend, we received daily messages and pictures from her so it kept us assured he was doing good. The messages were thoughtful and displayed that she is passionate about what she does. They truly treated him as if he were part of their family. We have had issues with pet sitters before so we weren't very comfortable leaving him but we will definitely be taking him back there! Thanks Michelle and kids for being so good to our puppy! You are awesome!
Left our Golden Retriever and Yorkie with Michelle again over the Labor Day weekend. Of course, she was awesome! One of our dogs has a little anxiety when he has to leave the house, and Michelle was so accommodating to him. Look forward to using her again, as we know our boys will be in great hands. Thanks Michelle!
Our puppy, Ladybug, loves going to Michelle's house! Michelle has been great to work with and is flexible. It is a great place for puppies to socialize with other dogs and children. Our puppy is still in the housebreaking stage, and Michelle has been helping us along. I highly recommend Michelle!
Michelle was absolutely awesome! She asked detailed questions about what my dog likes, how he acts in certain situations and kept us updated with photos. The photo updates are some of the best pics I have of my dog! She really helped give me peace of mind. She cares about what she does and makes it a fun experience for your dog. There is no doubt Michelle can be trusted to be your dog's friend when you can't. Thank you Michelle!
We left our 2 dogs with Michelle in June, while we were out of the country. They had a ball, and came home very happy. Michelle kept us up to date with emails and photos while we were away, and really made an extra effort to make sure our dogs were happy and comfortable. I will absolutely use her again, and recommend her highly!
