About Michelle

Hello and welcome !

My name is Michelle, I‘m 55 years old and adore all animals.... I offer "Doggy Day Care" and "Home Boarding" at my home, which include walks, playing and snuggles! (I can collect and deliver, additional charge of 50p per mile). I also offer a "24hr House & Pet Sitting Service" in your home. ..... All dogs that come to stay in our home, will never be left alone, they will be loved, pampered and treated as if they were ours. They will have the run of our house and 100ft, fully enclosed (inescapable!!) garden. We even have a small dog flap, which ours use all the time. Our fur babies sleep with us and yours can do the same, but if your baby sleeps in a crate, then that is fine too. I can accommodate all scenarios. Daily, I offer a run in a nearby field or woods. Or I drive to a country park or Tilgate Park in Crawley, where dogs can run and

swim ! Also pavement walks. And sometimes the beach ! ..... If I come to stay in your home, I will base myself at yours fully, for the time I'm required, so I can carry on your pet's schedule, in your absence.

I am married, with a stepdaughter who is 13, she visits us every other weekend. My husband arrives home from work early afternoon, so there will be plenty of company. We have our own 2 fur babies, Lilly a 3 yr old Yorkshire Terrier & Amber a 2 yr old Dachshund. We rescued Amber when she was one, because she barked too much....she now barks less than our Terrier ! ... We have had many dogs, ranging in size from a Border Collie to a Chihuahua (and cats) over the past 30 years, which we have trained from puppies.

When my children were young, we also had many small furry animals, which included 2 ferrets !

I have recently downsized my decorating business, to allow myself more quality time at home and to branch out into something less physical ! Animal care is something I’ve been wanting to do for years, but haven’t had enough spare time and now i have. I’m looking forward to swapping paintbrushes for dog leads, full time !

I look forward to hearing from you x

I cannot fault Michelle - she is great with our dog, she keeps in constant contact with messages and photos during the day and is very organised with dates, arrangements and confirmations. Our dog obviously loves being with Michelle so much that when we picked him up the first time there was no rushing to get out of the door, he just lay down and waited for us to finish our conversation - praise indeed!

Our two dogs have just spent a wonderful week with Michelle and her family. Michelle met us for an intro walk at our local park and was very relaxed and reassuring. She sent us regular updates and pictures and we were able to enjoy our holiday knowing our dogs were being cared for. We will definitely be calling on Michelle again!
