Introduction: Hi There! :) Thanks for checking out my page. I'm very established on the Rover app (ios and Android) with nothing but five star reviews. Since I can't paste a link here, feel free to ask me about and I'll send it your way! You can also find it listed under the website header on my profile. *Please note, pricing is dependent on several factors, including number and kind of animals, extent of care, distance from my home, etc.* *Please also note that I DO NOT board animals, I care for a client's animal(s) in their home. It helps to relieve anxiety and stress for the pet* More about me: I come from a family of animal lovers. My uncle (now retired) was a veterinarian, so I’ve always had a deep affinity and love towards animals. I almost went to vet school, but decided to pursue my graduate degree in Operations Research, as I also love numbers and engineering as a self-proclaimed nerd!:) I've grown up with dogs and cats, both large and small breed, my entire life. When I was much younger, I started a home and pet care business in Saratoga and Los Gatos in 2008 and retained over 25 repeat clients, including Fortune 500 CEOs and Stanford Hospital surgeons and cared for a variety of animals, including Arabian horses and African parrots. More importantly, I’ve always felt emotionally connected to the animals I grew up with, as I’m sure you do too! They truly are part of the family and seem to have a very keen understanding of deciphering your own emotions and acting accordingly. This all being said, your pet is treated as my own in my care...with the utmost love, compassion and understanding. More than happy to answer any questions you might have for me! All The Best, Michael ----- *Please note, pricing is dependent on several factors, including number and kind of animals, extent of care, distance from my home, etc.* *Please also note that I DO NOT board animals, I care for a client's animal(s) in their home.

Michael is a wonderful young man who takes his pet sitting seriously, which I appreciate! He’s great at keeping you apprised of what’s going on with your fur family, and is quick to respond to any questions. The house looked just as good as when I left! I was sorry that all of my cats are shy and I don’t think any of them came out for him!

Details: Cat • 5 pets • Giving food and water • Changing litter or bedding • Standard visit (60 minutes) • Two times a day • My home, venue, etc.

Michael is one of the most caring, genuine and honest individuals you will ever meet. His love for animals is obvious and sincere. He loves animals and our dogs liked him immediately. He is professional, on time and his rates are very reasonable. We are extremely happy with him and will continue to have him take care of our pets in the future. We feel lucky to know Michael and highly recommend his services. My only regret is that we didn’t find him sooner!

Details: Dog • 2 pets • Giving food and water • Taking pet outside • Providing companionship • Changing litter or bedding • Providing exercise • Overnight visit (10-12 hours) • My home, venue, etc.

Michael did a very nice job of taking care of my cat and my house. He was attentive to details and followed instructions. My otherwise shy cat came out from his sleeping places to be with Michael. He was good about sending frequent updates with pictures.

Michael took care of our cat while we were out of town for Thanksgiving. He’s responsive and very professional. I think the cat still misses him after we got back. Highly recommended.

Michael took care of my very energetic young cat for 3 days. He was easy to communicate with and sent daily updates. My cat seemed content when I got home—she has had behavioral issues in the past when I’ve left her in the care of friends, but none of that this time

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My rate changes based on number of dogs, if the stay is during a major holiday, if the stay is over 7 days, if there is cats included or puppies under a year old as well. Once I know all the details associated, we can work out a final price :)

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I always like to meet you and your animals beforehand to make sure it's a good fit for everyone. The more information you can give me about your pets and associated care, the better!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have grown up with dogs, cats and horses the entirety of my life (My uncle is also a retired vet in Minnesota) I started a petcare business in 2008 and ran it for 4 years and most recently, have been watching a variety of animals on Rover for over 3 years.
