Michelle responded to my inquiry quickly. I didn't go with her, but she was very professional.

Pet Sitting

I was impressed with how quickly Michelle responded to our needs and how organized and professional she was. She was very accommodating and easy to work with. It is obvious that she loves taking care of animals. This is the first time we sent our “kids” to another person’s home, but felt very comfortable leaving them in Michelle’s hands.

I am very happy with the care that Michelle gave Zoey while my wife and I were on vacation. Zoey hasn't been around other dogs much and I was happy that she got to interact with other dogs Michelle was caring for. I want to recommend Michelle and "Paw" Vider for anyone who is looking for there pet to have a well rounded experience of great care. Thanks again Michelle for taking care of Zoey while we were gone

Michelle has been taking care of my pets for several years now. I feel comfortable going away and knowing that they are in her hands. She sends me pictures and provides a daily report. I highly recommend her to everyone.

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

    My rate is based on the type of service, distance I have to travel, number of pets and what my visit entails.

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

    I typically like to conduct meet and greets first with potential clients to make sure it's going to be a good fit for both parties and to answer all questions that they may have.

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

    - Bachelors in Business Management - I have worked at 3 different animal hospitals throughout the years doing all positions - I was a district manager for 3 1/2 years at a company doing vaccination clinics for dogs and cats - I'm currently attending school to become a Certified professional dog trainer. I’ve completed my first course with the academy so am able to teach the basics right now. Once I complete my current course, I can offer more extensive training. - I'm also a volunteer for Clear Path For Veterans - Dogs2VetsProgram. - I am an actual business so I am licensed - I filed my DBA and operate under cny pet care "paw"vider - I'm insured for the safety of my client's pets
