About Michelle

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! My husband and I are huge animal lovers and have two dogs of our own, Calical and Otis. My husband is a Captain in the Air Force and I'm an actress. I'm home a majority of the time. My calendar will be marked unavailable when I book an acting job. We both have had dogs since our childhood years. We have also taken care of our friend's dogs when they go out of town.

Our house has a doggy door for small/medium dogs to have full access to the backyard. We can also take your pup out for potty breaks if they're not familiar with a doggy door. Your fur baby will have plenty of cuddles, play time, and will go on 2 walks a day. We don't have kids so there's no need to worry about their tails and ears being pulled :-)

Health and safety of all fur guests are a priority at Woof's Cozy Inn. We do not accept dogs with fleas and/or ticks for the health of others. Dogs that stay with us MUST be vaccinated, flea medicated, not destructive (chewing and marking furniture, shoes, etc) and must get along with other dogs of all sizes.

Please list drop-off and pick-up times on your request so we can work our schedule around these hours to best accommodate you and your pup.
Drop-off and pick-up times are between the hours of 7:00AM-10:00PM

Overnight boarding covers a 24 hour period from the time of drop-off to pickup-time. At the Woof's Cozy Inn, we have a free 4 hour grace period. With anything after 28 hours, there will be a discounted doggy daycare service of $10. For example, if you drop-off of on Wednesday at 8am and pick-up on Thursday at 2pm doggy daycare will apply.

We know how hard it is to find a sitter for a puppy due to the extra time and work they require. Puppies will be an additional $10 for boarding and $5 for daycare.

*All dogs MUST be house-trained*

There will be a lot of puppy play time since we have one ourselves!

Michelle has a great dog friendly apartment. She has her own small backyard ta good amount of space for dogs to play. Puppy Otis, just joined her and mellow Calical. If you have a puppy contact her, she loves taking care of puppies and knows about puppy issues. Michelle decided it would be fun to host other dogs since she has been a guest of Dogvacay for her doggies. She has years of experience taking care of dogs and when she doesn't have an acting job, she is home 24/7. I will use her for my next Dogvacay for my Charlie.
Michelle did such a great job taking care of my puppy that I was scared he'd never want to come home. She sent at least 5 videos/photos daily and I loved seeing how much fun Charlie was having at her place. Michelle also runs a small doggy daycare and my dog loved having the chance to make some new friends, all of which I was able to see through fun videos that Michelle sent over. Finally, Michelle was flexible on timing, able to extend Charlie's stay last minute and super helpful in picking up and dropping off Charlie.
Michelle was great! Definitely will be using her again. She sent multiple photos during the day to reassure us our dog was being taken care of. Thanks again!
My little rescue pup-cake Luna is very particular and fearful of strangers. Michelle was able to win her over immediately, which means the world to me! I would highly recommend her.
Michelle and her husband took great care of Gouda! We got lots of updates and photos/videos so we new Gouda was enjoying himself too.
I highly recommend Michelle for all your dogsitting needs. She's very loving , attentive and responsible. I left my dog with her for two nights and she was so wonderful to him. She texted me pics and videos through out his stay. I'm so happy I found a great, reliable dog sitter close to my home.
Michelle is one of the best daughters we've ever had! She is attentive and sweet. She has taken our dog on lots of walks and hikes. She is always our first call when we need someone to love on Clifford!
Michelle is THE best!!! I'm taking my pup there weekly to get some lovin' and tons of playtime with her doggies :) thanks so much Michelle!!!
Michelle was wonderful with Snowy. She sent many pictures of Snowy,s activities. It was so good to see how Snowy was doing on her first time away from us. We will be back. Dog Vacay communicated in a safe format and was thoughtful ,and protective of Michelle, dog , and owner. Thank you. Snowy wants to come and visit again!
Michelle was amazing and took wonderful care of Beans. She sent constant updates and photos and our pup looked like he had an amazing time and came home tired. We felt totally safe leaving Beans with Michelle and will definitely have him stay with her again in the future.
My baby love's coming to play with Michelle boys. Michelle is so amazing
Another great stay with Michelle! We went out of town, and felt so good knowing our little dog was at her place - being played with, walked, and snuggled. I loved getting all the pictures as it just helped our peace of mind, and so I could show the kids "Look, she's having so much fun at her puppy camp!".
I couldn't say enough about Michelle!
On top of being very sweet and friendly at our meet & greet, she was equally caring for my little Bella during her stay.
Of course my pup is my baby and leaving her with ANY one is difficult, but Michelle put me at ease from the start. She was great with my girl and able to keep her pups comfortable with Bella joining in on the playtime.
She sent me TONS of pix, videos and updates during Bella's stay and was SUPER flexible with my pickup time.
She even clued me into a discount code to save me a couple bucks!
Michelle will definitely be my first choice for upcoming dog-vacay's!
This was our first time having anyone watch our new puppy. I didn't want to do a regular kennel as I felt our dog needed more attention. I was so relieved when I first met Michelle - and then so happy when we did our first sleepover! Michelle was so generous to keep me posted with pix and notes - and it is so obvious she is a good caring person. I feel so lucky to have found her and will be having many more sleepovers when we go out of town!
Michelle is so great. You can tell she is a very attentive and thoughtful dog person. She sent us many photos to show us how much fun our dog was having. We felt very safe and secure with olive staying with her. We will definitely be repeat guests.
Michelle is our favorite and we LOVE HER! I rest assured whenever I drop off my puppy with her. He is always pumped and then happily exhausted when we pick up! Hooray for Michelle!
We love Michelle and her boys.
Teddy is always so happy. We went out of town for 4days and 3 nights Michelle took good care of our Baby as always. Lots of pictures and update. TEDDY is in love with his friends at Michelle home. I love Dogvaccy however I only want Michelle to take care of my baby because I feel so at peace when Teddy is in her care. She love my baby as if Teddy is hers
Thank you for all you do for us.
Btw: we miss you!!!!
Michelle is the best! We've had Jackson stay with her a couple times now and I am relieved after moving to Burbank we found a reliable, sweet, safe sitter for him. He LOVES seeing her and her pooches and he plays all day long, leaving me a happy and tuckered out puppy at night - the best! Thank you, Michelle!
Super reliable and sweet
I'm a little nervous when I take our little Diego somewhere for the first time, but Michelle quickly put me and Diego at ease and welcomed him into their home. I got photos and videos every day and could see he was having so much fun and had fitted in well and settled nicely into his vacay home. When we had to extend his stay unexpectedly, it was no problem. I highly recommend Michelle and we'll definitely be back the next time we go away. I think Diego was missing them and the new friends he made. Everything went smoothly. Communication was great the whole time and he came home a happy pup. You can't ask for more than that. Thanks again Michelle. :)
Michelle was great! She send me photo and video updates throughout the day and was patient when my dog was misbehaving at the beginning of the stay!
Our pups had the best time with Michelle and Arthur. They got lots of walks and play time and we loved getting pictures and videos every day. Communication was exceptional and it was an all around great experience. Thanks so much.
Michelle was absolutely exceptional! Great communication through booking and updates while my pup was there, She has two sweet, playful dogs of her own, and she made the entire process was smooth and easy. Definitely brining my lil pup-a-roo back for more!
Our dogs were treated like family!!!!!
Michelle was amazing! She sent regular updates of Rediford, each showing a smiling, happy puppy. I think his vacation might have been better than mine; he definitely didn't want to leave.
Michelle is a caring, gracious host. She has a nice yard for our dog to enjoy and was very attentive to his needs. We already booked for another dogvacay!
Polly Walnuts LOVES Michelle and Otis and CaliCal. She basically has a mini freak out from excitement when she's anywhere near their house. I feel extremely comfortable when Polly is in the hands of Michelle and her fur-boys!
Michelle and her husband were great for our little puppy! They watched our new 9 week old baby when we went out of town for a couple of days. We were nervous to leave him since he was just a baby but they took amazing care of him and kept us posted constantly with pictures and videos. It really put me at ease. Highly recommend! A++
Polly LOVED staying with Michelle! Michelle and her two dogs especially Otis, were the perfect hosts for Pauly walnuts two days this past week. Otis and Polly were besties! Polly was having so much fun she seemed to reluctantly come home with me. I would definitely bring Polly back to see Michelle and her two dogs.
Michelle was also great with my various drop off and pick up hours. Which I was grateful for...

PS. Polly says Woof Woof to Otis. (Her new best friend).
Wow!! I'm so happy. My dog is so Happy. Teddy is going back tomorrow. I'm so happy with how clean and safe Michelle house and yard is. I'm so overwhelmed with joy! This is my first name using this app and I will definitely tell my friends about Michelle. Thank you Michelle it was so hard leaving my dog but your service is so amazing.
