Michelle was excellent! I feel totally confident leaving her with my puppy and will definitely call her 1st next time I need her to care for Jesse!
— Debi C and Jesse
Michelle is obviously an animal lover. Treats Luci Pearl as one of her own. She gets 5 paws up from Luci Pearl and me.
— Wendy T and Luci Pearl
I had to be out of town with a new puppy, which I had only one week. I was very nervous about leaving her. Michelle was awesome and took very good care of my baby. She was prompt everyday and performed all duties as described. I would highly recommend Michelle and will use her again for my doggy care!
— Stephen B and Bailey
