“"Giving Your Pets The Individual Care They Deserve"”


As a child, I would bring home every stay animal I could find and sometimes they would simply show up at our front door. Even at that young age, I knew I would always have animals in my life and in 2009 fulfilled that dream.

About Smooch Your Pooch Petsitting Service, LLC

hired 10 times on Thumbtack

I give your pets the individual care they deserve. I provide dog walking and pet sitting in the comfort of your own home where your pets are surrounded by familiar scents, sights and sounds. The advantages of having a sole caregiver for your pets is they see the same person each time which builds trust and familiarity with your pets. You will know the person that comes into your home and who you have left in the care of your beloved pets.

Please see below some of the services I offer:

- Daily dog walks
- Exercise and play in the comfort of your own yard
- Multiple daily visits
- Extended visits
- Overnight visits
- Pet Taxi

In addition to the services I provide, I'm also FEMA certified in rapid response in animal rescue through Best Friend sAnimal Society and Certified in pet First-Aid and CPR through American Red Cross. Your mind will be at ease in knowing that your pet will be well cared for.

I am licensed, certified, bonded and insured for your protection and peace of mind.

My love for animals and years of experience allows me to provide you with the utmost quality care for your pets. I am the proud parent of two dogs and five cats and would love the opportunity to give your pets the love and care I show mine.

I service Palmetto Bay, Cutler Bay, Pinecrest, Kendall, Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, Homestead and surrounding areas of south Miami.

Michelle of Smooch Your Pooch has done pet sitting services for me for over 2 years and my animals love her, and so do I.
My cats, Yoda and Rosie are relaxed when I return home without that "where have you been" attitude. They are contented creatures and are used to quite a bit of pampering, so I am always confident with Michelle's ability to give them the same kind of love I give to them.

She is always responsible and reliable and goes the extra mile to make things right. Once when she was pet sitting for me, it had rained to the point of my front door not being able to be opened. She called me and then took the matter into her own hands and went to the store to buy oil for the locks and got in to feed the girls. Even in situations that need a special touch, she always delivers it.

I highly recommend Michelle and Smooch Your Pooch for all your petsitting needs and cares.

    When I moved to Miami I was worried about who would take care of my 3 dogs. After meeting Michelle she put my mind at ease, she is reliable, kind and terrific with my dogs. Her updates when I am away are so nice and make it easier to be away from them. I would definitely recommend Smooch Your Pooch to anyone.

    Michelle is awesome, and I can always count on her to treat my dog well when I'm not able to be there for him. She walks, feeds, and plays with him, cleans up any messes if they occur, and leaves a log of what happened. Your best friend is in great hands with her!

  • 5/5 stars January 7, 2014

    Michelle took care of my cats for 9 days and did a fantastic job. She was reliable and even sent me pictures of my cats while I was away. She fed them, gave them water, emptied the litter box, and played with them. I will use her again :)

    I used Michelle of Smooch Your Pooch when I went on a 10 day vacation. From the very start Michelle was extremely professional, bringing forms and detailing the needs of my kitties. She encouraged me to check in whenever I felt like it to see how my pets were and she sent pics to my phone while I was away. She spent time with my cats, not just feeding them and leaving, but interacting with them. She even got my shy cat to come out and say hi. I highly recommend her for your pet sitting needs.

  • 5/5 stars June 8, 2013

    Michelle is a wonderful pet sitter. She was able to connect with my hyperactive Australian Blue Heeler and he responded well to her. She is very personable and reliable. I will definitely hire her the next time I go on vacation.

  • 5/5 stars January 8, 2013

    Michelle is top notch. She is dependable, professional, and experienced. Our dogs and cats absolutely love her, and because of this we can be away from home with complete peace or mind that our pets are in the best hands possible. We are truly lucky to have found Michelle and would recommend her to any pet owner without hesitation.

  • 5/5 stars January 7, 2013

    Michelle did a fantastic job taking care of my kitties. She exceeded my expectations by not only feeding, providing water and cleaning their litter boxes, but she also gave them treats, brushed their fur, swept up around their boxes and retrieved the mail. Most importantly, Michelle gave each cat individual attention and kept in contact with me throughout my time away from home. Even my shy kitty did well while I was gone. I look forward to using her services again and highly recommend Smooch Your Pooch!

    The day I interviewed Michelle I knew she was the one for my four beagles. I am incredibly particular with the care of my dogs and have never boarded or taken them to doggy daycare. Michelle spoiled them with love, attention, treats, and gifts.

    Michelle is the most trustworthy and caring person I have ever met. Not only was she great with my dogs, but I could confide in her as a friend. If you are looking for someone genuine to care for your fur-babies, Michelle is the only one I would recommend!

  • 5/5 stars December 17, 2012

    Michelle was wonderful with my two dogs and cats. They just loved her. She took care of them for two days and I never had to worry.
    I will always use her.

    Michelle Kehm of Smooch You Pooch is terrific. When you meet her, you immediately get a sense of her love for animals and also that she takes her responsibility for your pets very seriously.

    I recently was out of town for a week and was really able to relax and enjoy my trip knowing my pets were being treated great in their own home. I came back to two happy little yorkies.

    I highly recommend Smooch Your Pooch!

    We've been using Smooch Your Pooch petsitting service for over a year. Michelle visits the dogs every day to let them out at lunch time, and she also watches the dogs overnight while we are out of town. Michelle has been terrific and I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who's looking for a great petsitter who really cares about your dogs. Michelle's very organized and thorough. Several of our dogs have been on medication when she comes to stay, and she always makes sure to understand exactly when and how much medication they need. She's very flexible, and we regularly communicate via email and phone. It's very comforting to have a petsitter who you feel you can trust.

    My husband and I went to Ireland a few months ago and out of the number of Petsitting services We researched and spoke to, we found that "Smooch your pooch" was the most caring and informative and we felt very comfortable knowing our Six Kitties would be in such capable hands. When we returned after three weeks we knew we had made the right choice. My Kitties were well taken care of, and we will use her petsitting service as often or whenever we need to be away, long or short term.

Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. The advice I would give any one looking to hire a petsitting professional is that to ask the right questions. Always ask how long they have been doing it and if they are insured. Also if your pet has special needs if they are able and willing to care for them. Ask if they are willing to provide references as well. If the service you are interested in using hesitates with any of these then they are probably not the right one for you.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. I do this line of work first and foremost for my love of animals. I'm confident that my clients know this from my interactions with their pets as well as with them. While it is a business, I strive to run it with flexibility and to accomodate the client and their pets whenever possible. I thrive on providing my clients with quality service by working with the client on a case by case basis. I believe each pet has special needs and should be treated as such. In working with my clients on a more intimate level, I have made great friends.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. I would have to say that this is the business I have always wanted and finally made it a reality. I get to spend my days with clients pets and build strong relationships with both human client and furry client. I strive for quality service and it shows. Each pet is unique and requires special care, that is what I love the most!

Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?

A. The answer to this is simple. I have loved animals ever since I can remember. Whatever animal found it's way to our home usually ended up staying. The satisfaction my line of work provides me is enormous! I get to provide pet owners with the best care for their pets and best of all have fun doing it. I get out of bed excited to go to work.

Q. What is your greatest strength?

A. Listening to the client and being authentic. I think people can sense when you aren't. I myself as a pet owner want to make sure whoever I hire wants to provide the best care for my pets. To most people, pets are considered family members and want the best for them. I make sure that communication is always open and appreciate any feedback from a client that helps me to succeed in doing a great job and in providing the best service possible. In doing so I can grow my business at the same time. I strive to always give 100% customer service at all times.
