I am an active, responsible, patient dog lover looking to meet some furry friends! We owned 2 shih tzus (Willie and Bella) when my kids were growing up and also fostered dogs. My work is quite flexible so you can be assured that your pup will never be alone for longer than a few hours at a time. I enjoy travelling so having a dog of my own is not in the cards right now so this is the perfect opportunity for me to have a canine companion and make your life easy while you are away. I love nothing more than coming home and unwinding from the day by going to a long leisurely stroll and playing with a pup. There is a lot of love in my life for pets so if you are looking for an enthusiastic dog lover to take care of your fur baby when you are away then look no further- you found me! When my kids were very young my family had a black lab/german shepherd names Brandy. She was rambunctious! Then we got Willie and Bella so I am used to having little pups running around. We also fostered many pups, including a chihuahua and a golden retriever. I am comfortable with dogs on a leash (even if they like to pull or aren't the best with other dogs). I am very flexible with special requirements for diet and walking schedules.
Michelle is a fantastic cat sitter. Our cat Zen is an elderly old man that takes a lot of pills and is easily stressed out. We came home to a happy boy, very well taken care of.
She’s great at communicating and sent us pictures every time she visited and sent us daily updates. She even watered our plants.
If we ever go out of town again we would book with Michelle again, we highly recommend her!
We booked Michelle a few weeks before our trip when we had a last minute need for a sitter for our 60lbs Golden Lab for 16 nights - no small task! Her communication was excellent and she kept me updated while she was checking her schedule. She came over to meet our pup the weekend before and we were all at ease. Our dog liked her and she wasn't put off by his hyperness. We chatted a bit and I truly felt that we had known her for much longer than a week. Up to and on the day of our departure Michelle kept in contact making sure all plans were still in place. When she arrived Zeus was happy to see her although he had been anxious with our suitcases out. We left knowing he was in great hands and we didn't hear him bark after us which he does normally. While we were away Michelle kept us updated with pictures of Zeus and msgs. We arrived home to a happy pup and clean sheets! Cannot thank her enough! Will definitely be booking again for our next trip!
During my time with Dog Rescue I have had to deal with many timid and afraid dogs, dogs, that have food agression, hyper dogs, and dogs that have little or no training.
