About Michelle

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a huge animal lover. I will treat your pet as part of the family while in my care. I will walk, feed, play, and cuddle with your pet in my care. I am a stay at home dog mom and decided to become a pet sitter after my experience boarding my dog while on vacation. My baby had never been caged before and it broke my heart. I want your pet to feel at home and loved. I also went to school for dog grooming. I offer baths, brushing and nail clipping for a small charge. I ask that all pets are house broken and flea free. I do not have breed restrictions but ask that all dogs behave. Playful hyper puppies are ok. No aggressive dogs allowed.

Michelle made me feel safe about leaving my babies. Sophie is blind and needed medicine and Michelle seemed comfortable with the situation. My boy is a mama's boy and was really scared for me to leave...but after awhile I saw him get comfy with her daughter and her dogs. Big outside and when Altai couldn't sleep, Michelle said she got up with him and stayed on the couch with him. She sent pictures and responded to me when I would send a text, being a bit nervous.
I will use her again!

Michelle is wonderful. My dogs have stayed with her multiple times and she takes great care of them and treats them like family. She is very flexible with drop off and pick up times, and my dogs are always very happy to see her. I would definitely recommend Michelle to anyone looking for a trustworthy, kind, awesome dog sitter. :)

Michelle is great! Her home is lovely and my dog had so much fun playing with her dogs! Will definitely use her again.
My dog loves spending the day with Michelle, she comes home and goes right to sleep from playing all day.
I wish there were more than five starts to give Michelle, because she is just that amazing. There is no better person on here to watch your pet! I cannot say enough positive things about my experience with Michelle. She far exceeded my expectations as a pet sitter. She was very accommodating for both drop off/pick up which saved me a lot of personal time while trying to prepare for our out of town vacation. Michelle and her family were very personable and I could tell they were genuine animal lovers. I immediately connected with them at our initial introductions, and knew my 11 year old Italian Greyhound, Kelsey, would be safe and feel right at home at their home. I felt completely at ease and confident that Michelle would do a great job and give Kelsey plenty of personal attention. Her home (both indoor and outdoor) was very clean, warm and welcoming, with plenty of free space for Kelsey to run around and explore. Michelle has multiple rooms and a large yard for Kelsey. Michelle took Kelsey for walks and kept us updated (daily) with pictures and information while we were gone. I received pictures of Kelsey playing, eating, sleeping, going for walks, and even sitting on Michelle’s husband’s lap while he tried to work from his computer! Kelsey was definitely treated like family. Michelle’s dogs were so friendly as well and Kelsey LOVED the extra company while we were gone. No doubt your dog will be given proper care and time to play, rest and do their normal activties and even more while you are away! If you want your dog to be safe and well taken care of the way you would do for your dog then I urge you to book a dog vacay with Michelle. I previously have had terrible experiences leaving Kelsey at boarding facilities only for her to come home with illnesses or depression. Michelle’s house is the place for your dog to be at home away from home! Michelle treated Kelsey with as much love as possible and that was vital for me to know when I already felt so guilty for leaving her. Michelle’s thorough and thoughtful care for Kelsey and sending me reassuring text messages and pictures gave me great peace of mind that was priceless. I will never take my dog anywhere else and I whole heartedly recommend her services to anyone and everyone I can!

Michelle is great. We just moved to Florida and we were waiting for our house to close. We didn't want to use a kennel , as they are less personable.She is very accommodating with our situation and sends pictures daily. We will definitely use Michelle again!

Kat loves to visit Michelle and has a great time.
Michelle did a great job with my two "pups", she sent pictures each day and you could tell Jack and Jill were treated as though they were family. This is my first experience with DogVacay and am very pleased with the experience. I highly recommend Michelle to anyone wishing to have the best care for their dogs.

Michelle is a gem, she absolutely loves my baby Gia. She took Gia in for the night under such short notice. Gia love being there. She didn't miss us. Michelle you will always be our 1st Choice in Merritt Island. Fl.
Michelle was awesome! She sent me photo updates, was very flexible with drop off and pick up times, and my dog was so happy. I think she was almost sad to leave. I will be booking with Michelle again as I can not rate her more highly!
This was my first time using DogVacay and my experience was great! I have left my dog in Kennels and my girl would come home so full of anxiety and and stress. She would breathe heavy for hours and seem distressed and jumpy. I happened to come across this site and I found Michelle. She was professional and very personable. She was patient with all of my questions. She sent me pictures and updates (really good ones) all through my dog's stay with her. She even accommodated a last minute extended stay for an extra day. I knew she was in loving hands. When it was time to pick her up, she was excited to see us but calmed right down. She wasn't pulling me to go. She seemed completely at ease. When we got home, my girl seemed pouty and I felt guilty for taking her away from her new friends :) Michelle is so great that I may start taking my girl for daycare once a week just for play time. We picked a great host! I know now that I can go on vacation and be at peace knowing my girl is being treated like family by Michelle and her family!

Kat had a great visit with Michelle and her family. They took great care of her.
Our dog thinks staying with Michelle is great, and probably even more fun than being home. No matter how good the boarding experience, our dog is usually still an anxiety-ridden wreck when we pick him up. He usually spends the entire ride home cry-whining his simultaneous joy/disappointment with us. When we picked him up from his first stay with Michelle, he was gleeful, well-adjusted, and tired! When we got home, he seemed to look around for Michelle's dog (who he must have bonded with), then went to the door as if asking to be taken back to Michelle's! We'd never seen him so happy about boarding, and are overjoyed to have found Michelle. She responds quickly to texts, is very friendly, easy to talk to, and most importantly seemed to really care about our dog's well-being. She took the time to figure out his personality/needs and adjusted her care to his level of anxiety. We travel a lot, and finding someone like Michelle is a blessing for us and our pup. Our first boarding experience with Michelle was so great that we immediately went ahead and booked a second future boarding with her. Thank you Michelle!

Michelle was great! We had a last minute booking and she replied to us very promptly. This was our first time using dogvacay and had a very good experience. Skye was more than comfortable when we picked her up and we could tell she had a great time! Will definitely use Michelle again when in the area!

Michelle did a wonderful job taking care of our dog. She updated me daily on his day and always included a picture. I could enjoy my vacation without worry as I knew my dog was well taken care of.
Hoover had a great time at Michelle's. She was accommodating with our strange arrival time, and her dog kept the little man entertained the whole time. There was lots of space at her place for the dogs to run in. Great experience.
Michelle was so attentive to our Lola and Abby! They were treated like family, giving them a chance to get use to being in a new place. They got lots of love and cozy blankets to keep them happy! We will definitely be using her again!
Michelle did a fantastic job taking care of our dog while we were out of town!! They took morning and evening walks, our dog got lots of love, and I'm sure he had just as much fun on his vacation as we did on ours!! She even administered special drops in his ears that had just been prescribed by our vet. Her home is nice and clean. We will definitely contact Michelle again when we go out of town. Can't say enough nice things!!!
