About Mike

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My wife and I love animals and have grown up with dogs and cats. . We have a 5 and half month old golden retriever named Annabelle. She loves other dogs and is not aggressive. Our 2 cats stay in the cat room so your dogs will not see them For the past five years I have been a full time pet sitter and my wife helps with the paper work.

We treat our pets as our kids and will treat yours the same. We know how much a part of the family your pets are so they will be loved and cared for like our own.

We try and be flexible with our schedule and will go out of our way to work with whatever hours or days you may need. If you need us last minute we are always happy to help out. I always have my cell phone so you can check on your pets or I can text pictures or updates.

Whatever your routine is at home is we try to keep it the same. I try to get your pets outside every hour or two. The water gets changed every hour or as needed.

What ever we can do to make you and your pet comfortable just let us know. If the have a favorite toy or bed please bring it so your pet will feel more comfortable I try to give my wife a break and will sleep with your pets down in the man cave and they can sleep on the chair with me.

Mike was great with our puppies! They can home happy and exhausted lol!
Mike was great met us at the door, asking about any possible issues. Sent an update about our dog. Promptly met us when we returned for pickup. I would recommend using him for your dog.
Very accommodating and a stress relief to have our two dogs well taken care of. We appreciated the updates (2/day) and the photo.
Mike was really good. Maya came back home happy and super tired, signs she had a lot of fun playing with Mike and Annabelle (his dog). He sent pictures and answered every time I called.
Our dog Charlie loves sleeping with mike. Annabell & Charlie play together all day long. Great vacation for our dog
Mike watched my 9 year old beagle and 8 year old Golden Retriever over the weekend. He was super flexible and professional. He sent regular updates too. We will use him again and recommend him to friends.
Bella enjoyed her stay. Thanks!
Charlie had a great time and slept for a day when he got home. Just rebooked for another stay over.
Had never used the site or the service before. Mike was great. I could tell when I picked my dog up that he had a great time. I would definitely use Mike T in the future!
Mike did a wonderful job taking care of Bosco. I don't usually leave Bosco with anyone except family due to his old age. However, I felt completely comfortable leaving him with Mike during my wedding and overnight. Thank you!
Took good care of our pups. Will definitely call him again.
Mike was the perfect host for our two personality-full golden retrievers, the first time they've stayed with someone not from our family. He texted us reassuring pictures of them playing with his puppy and gave us an update every day. He was a good sport about waking up in the middle of the night with a tennis ball in his face! We know they had the best care with Mike.

Mike did an excellent job with boarding our pup Jake. We are first time dog parents and were extremely nervous, and Mike made it very easy for us. He sent us numerous daily updates and pictures during Jake's stay, and really put us at ease, while we were on vacation. We highly recommend Mike and his service. Thanks Mike!

Mike was very nice, willing to provide daily updates, and keep the schedule you currently have for your pets. Frodo came back happy and well cared for.
Mike kept us up to date and sent photos to let us know everything was going great. He did a great job and got right back to us.
Had a pleasant experience with Mike!
Mike provided us with updates and even met with us before hand to make sure it was a good fit, super nice guy.
Mike is great! He was very flexible with my drop off and pick up due to my crazy flights! Daisy seemed really happy when we picked her up!
Last minute Mike was able to host my 2 mutts for a few days. He stayed in constant contact with me...sent updates & pictures. I would definitely recommend & book him again. He committed to caring for my dogs and I am very thankful!
We were very happy with the service Mike provided us. This was the first time Jake was away from us. We received many text updates on how Jake was doing, which was great for us, as very nervous, first time, puppy owners, using the service. We would definitely recommend the service, and more importantly, would recommend Mike's service that he provided! We will be using him again and many thanks to Mike!

Biscuit came home happy and healthy! "Pawsome" job by Mike!
We were very happy with Mike. He kept us updated every day. Cuddles and Milky way were well taken care of. We will definitely use Mike again. Thank you Mike for taking such care of our pups.
Mike was great with our puppy, Daphne! This was her first time away from us and she took to mike right away. When we picked her up she was happy as could be and then slept for hours from all the fun she had been having. Definitely recommend.
I highly recommend Mike!!! He was awesome. He was able to accommodate our last minute reservation with no hassle at all, responded quickly to all our messages and was very flexible about pick up/drop off times. He was also extremely conscientious about texting me updates and pictures during my dog's visit. I can tell my dog had a great time playing with other dogs in Mike's great big backyard and that Mike genuinely loves dogs!!

Our dog came home healthy, happy, and and in a good mood. We were less than a week away from needing to go away, and Mike was a perfect fit. He took time to have us over, show us where our dog would stay, and talk with us about the our dogs process so he could make sure to maintain his life style while we were away. Couldn't be happier with how convenient and thorough the service provided was. And neither could our dog.

Miller had a great time with Mike
Mike watched two of our dogs and was great throughout. He texted updates to let us know they were OK. We had never left our dogs with a stranger before and were a bit nervous, but Mike seems interested in making sure the dogs and customers are happy, listening to what the main concerns/priorities are while we were gone (re: safety/security, level of enrichment, feeding, etc.). We were nervous about using a dog-sitter and the other reviews we saw on his page (from people who were also apprehensive about leaving their dog with someone they don't know) won us over. Thanks, Mike!

Mike watched my boy Walter for me when I went on a last minute trip. With other sitters, he's come back a bit out of sorts, but he came back from Mike's as happy as ever! We will definitely rebook.
Thanks to Mike for his care and great treatment of my dogs. They were completely happy when I picked them up and not at all stressed or freaked out. He also accomodated me at the last minute when I needed to request another night. Mike is attentive, present and gentle with dogs which is key for their safekeeping. Thank you Mike. I am using his services again next week!

Mike was an awesome host. It was our first time leaving our dog with anyone and it was a great experience. We texted Mike a couple of times to make sure that Crosby was doing well and Mike texted back immediately to tell us that everything was going well. We let Mike know that we were on our way to pick him up and Mike was waiting with Crosby (who was sitting nicely beside Mike) outside.
Crosby was relaxed and happy! No stress, no problems. We are already planning some trips since we now have a reliable sitter to care for our dog. Thanks, Mike!

This is our second time using Mike's service. Once again, Dub came home in a calm and relaxed way! Mike provides us a paw-some alternative to a kennel! Mike provides daily updates, so we always know how Dub is doing. It is great to know we can go on vacation and know that Dub is well taken care of. Thanks, Mike!

1 of our dogs is pretty difficult and loud. I don't think any dog boarding place would have accepted him. But Mike did and at a really good price. Highly recommend him!
This was our first time using Dog Vacay. We didn't know exactly what to expect, but the whole process was easy, more than reasonably priced, and the perfect accommodation for your puppy if you don't need long term boarding or for last minute needs.

Mike was awesome. He responded promptly and walked us through the process (being our first time using the service). We were able to get an overnight stay set up with Mike on a holiday weekend the day before. Debbie (our pup) was very comfortable at drop off and was happy as could be on pick up. We highly recommend the service, and in particular, Mike T.

This was our first time ever to trust anyone with our dog, Layla, while we went on vacation. As such, we were apprehensive about leaving her behind. When we met Mike, we were quickly comforted with his reassurance that he would watch over her and send us updates while we were away. Every single day that we were away, i received at least one (sometimes multiple) text from Mike. Layla was well cared for. Not only did Mike care for Layla, be he helped our family enjoy our vacation- knowing that Layla was on a vacation at Mike's home! I would definitely recommend Mike to anyone who cares about their dog.

Mike was a great host for Dub! Dub doesn't do well in a kennel; he gets too nervous and usually comes home with gastrointestinal issues. Mike provided a home-like setting, and had other dogs there for Dub to play with. We received daily updates on how he was doing, and a picture from time to time! It's nice to know we can go on vacation and have someone like Mike to watch Dub.

Thanks, Mike!

Mike was great at keeping us updated daily! We liked that.
I was looking for a sitter for my dog in a pinch over a holiday weekend because our usual go-to (camp bow wow) was at capacity. I found DogVacay online, read a few profiles, and Mike's stood out to me. Within minutes of putting the request, he accepted and got in contact with me immediately. He was able to take Caesar that day! I was hesitant at first, since the only place I've ever boarded my dog was Camp Bow Wow (and you can literally stalk your dog via web cams all day long, if you wanted to). However, once I saw that Caesar had other dogs to play with, and a fenced in yard to run around in, I was already feeling better.
While I was away, Mike texted with updates on how C was doing, and even sent a few pictures! This made our trip much more relaxing, knowing our baby was being taken care of.
I would definitely look to Mike & DogVacay again in the future.

Our dog, Casey, seemed to totally enjoy himself with Mike. We will definitely keep Mike in mind the next time we go somewhere we can't take him.
Mike did one of the best jobs ever, he sent pictures, he sent messages, he was receptive to my calls. He was knowledgeable and thorough. I would definitely use him again!
Very Flexible and Sand is Happy--who could ask for more! Thanks
Thanks so much Mike. Sand had a great time and was well cared for. We'll be back
Mike was very accommodating with our crazy schedule and short notice. Sand was very well taken care of. We got pics and text messages, and our experience was very positive. We'll be repeat customers.
