About this pro

How does your service stand out?

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.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

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!

    Trustworthy, reliable, and affordable
    Trustworthy, reliable, and affordable. I have never used a dog walking service before and couldn't be happier that I found Smooch Your Pooch on the first try. Michelle and Cevin take wonderful care of our two dogs and provide us peace of mind as we know our home and pets are in excellent hands under their care. They have helped us on short notice, are always on time, and promptly respond to all our requests. And most importantly, our dogs love them! You can stop your search now. You've found the perfect pet sitters who will treat your pets like family.

    Michelle was able to fit me in on short notice. She is professional, friendly, and Ziggy was ready to go walkies with her on day one. I would definitely recommend Smooch Your Pooch.

    I'm so relieved to have found Smooch Your Pooch! Michelle is such a warm, caring and professional person. I think she knows what it's like to be an over protective pet owner, so she is more than willing to keep your mind at ease when you're away. I loved how communicative she was, and took care of our beloved kitties in the exact way we specified. We will definitely be hiring Smooch Your Pooch again!

    Amy H 3 months ago 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!

    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.

    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.
  • Stacy G. Jan 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.
  • Christine L. Jan 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!

    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!
  • Amy R. Aug 29, 2010
    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.


How did you get started doing this type of work?
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.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
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.
