About Michaela

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I love dogs! :) I have been doing this for 4 years now and have had over 50 jobs with 20 different clients. I have watched dogs from 2 weeks to 15 years old, from Maltese to Mastiff, and everything in between. I'm studying fisheries and wildlife at Michigan State and this extra income has helped me get through college! I live on campus with my own car, so driving to your home is no problem. I am a very active person, so going for walks and playing are second nature to me! I feel comfortable administering medication and will always send you pictures so you know your dog is safe and having fun! I will also keep your normal routine and make sure your home is nice and clean for you to come back to. I'm happy to meet with you beforehand to answer any questions, and of course, to make sure your dog likes me too! :)

We made a quick trip up north and Michaela did a great job taking care of our 2 dogs. She sent us pictures and made sure they got their walks. When we plan to travel again we will make sure we give her a call.
Michaela was wonderful, highly recommend!
Michaela is a wonderful dog sitter. We selected her because of her nicely written bio and mention that she was comfortable accommodating special needs as well. She is very responsive to texts / questions. When she came for our “meet-n-greet” our dogs were immediately at ease with her. She recently stayed with our two dogs for the weekend. We maintained excellent communication while away with lots of texts and pictures. She administered meds to one of our dogs and dealt with a power outage in our area. She is very professional in her demeanor. We had peace of mind knowing that our dogs were in good and loving hands!

My husband and I needed a dog sitter on such short notice and glad we found Michaela! She was quick in her response and had told us about her past experiences in dog sitting. This was our first time using Dog Vacay and I was a bit weary about someone staying at our house. Michaela came over and met our dogs and although we for sure didn't pick her yet at that moment, she asked us questions about our two dogs and was professional about it! Michaela was willing to come let them out 3 times a day instead of staying the night and sent us a picture that first day :) Michaela also wrote us a welcome home note informing us how the dogs did while we were away :) We are looking forward to have Michaela as our future dog sitter!

Michaela is wonderful. She had stayed with our 3 dogs several times and we all love her!!! She's very respectful of property and is a true professional.
Michaela came and stayed in our home when we needed to be gone for a few days. She did a great job with Gizmo and sent us lots of pictures throughout. He really had a good time and we had peace of mind knowing he was well cared for. Michaela also maintained excellent communication with us through texts and pictures the whole time. We are making plans to have Michaela sit Gizmo again next time we go out of town. :-)
