About Michelle

Greetings! I'm at writer that works at home (or yours). For the most part I'm not taking in-home dogs because of a couple barkers, but we can talk! I am happy to watch your dog(s) in your own home, and in fact that often works better for the dogs and their comfort level.

I am a big jogger/walker, and happy to take your pup strolling as often as he/she prefers. I am happy to take multiple dogs. I don't do bully breeds (sorry!) or dogs that aren't friendly with others.

Feel free to ask me any questions. I'd love to meet your pup before our first overnight, but it's not mandatory. It's also helpful to know what neighborhood you live in, if you're interested in in-home care. As I'm completing a novel, it's great for me to work outside my own home, so I really do prefer in-home sitting at this time.

Thank you!
Michelle

helen (my dog) had a great time with michelle - i'd definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a pupsitter. she watched helen for two days when my boyfriend was out of town, and i had to work and didn't want helen to be alone at home.

i dropped off helen sunday morning and picked her up sunday night. when i walked her back over to michelle's on monday morning helen was SO happy to see michelle -- definitely a good sign.

michelle was awesome and sweet, and sent me texts and pictures throughout the day which was great. overall, couldn't be happier.

thanks michelle!

Another great stay with Michelle! Diego LOVES her!
Michelle is the BEST! Diego loves staying with her - he doesn't even look back when we leave.
Our drop-off time was incompatible with Michelle's schedule so we left her the keys and she stayed with our dogs at our house. Even better! I got pictures and updates on them and she even noted one of my dogs shaking his head funny so I knew to take care of him (darn Cocker Spaniels and their ear infections.) My dogs were sniffing around the apartment for her after she left so I'm guessing they had a good time :). Awesome!

Michelle was AWESOME with my pups. She was also super responsive, reliable and communicative. They were so happy and relaxed when I came home. Even my rescue pup (who sometimes struggles) was happy as a clam. Two paws up!
Michelle was able to help us out last minute on a holiday weekend. She texted us some photos and updates which put our nerves about boarding with a new person at ease. One of our dogs is on heart meds and anxiety meds and she was able to manage pills and excessive bathroom needs with no complaints. So glad we found Michelle.

Diego had another great Vacay with Michelle! Thank you Michelle for giving Diego a lot of love while we were away. Marc, Jennifer & Olivia
Diego had a great time with Michelle! Thanks so much for taking care of our little guy for us.
Paddington had a great stay with Michelle and made some new doggie friends. He got lots of lap time and was wiped out. Thanks Michelle!
