Michael’s Bio

I love dogs and always have. I grew up with a Beagle and over the years I've been finding different ways to be around dogs as I don't have my own due to the fact that I’m away from my apartment house and pet sitting.

Back in 2008 I spent almost 6 months trying to find and capture a lost Beagle by the name of Billy while volunteering with the animal rescue group Homeless Animals Rescue Team (HART).

In 2009 I joined up with a bunch of volunteers to help owners find their lost dogs. We had a couple of really happy endings and we even helped a dog find its owners after our group responded to an ad from people who kept seeing a stray dog in their neighborhood.

In November 2009 I started working with an all-volunteer transport network where we help get dogs and cats out of high-kill or overcrowded animal shelters and get them to foster families or rescues.

I worked for Fetch Pet Care of Vienna which required an extensive background check so I could be bonded and insured by the company. From 9/4/09 till 1/15/11 I was walking a 10-year-old Portuguese Water Dog by the name of Chester Monday through Friday and some weekends.

Also, outside of the pet care company I have had hundreds of house and pet sitting jobs with about 15 different families. My oldest current client is from July 2009 and my 2nd oldest client is from March 2010. I've cared for puppies, dogs, kittens and cats.

I try to live a pretty clean lifestyle as I have never smoked or done drugs in my life and I rarely if ever drink alcohol.

Some of the responsibilities I’ve taken on with the other families have included collecting the trash throughout the house and taking it to the curb, watering the plants, indoors and outdoors, doing the dishes, vacuuming the floors to clean up any messes that are made and collecting the mail and newspaper.

I have no doubt that you're looking for someone responsible and trustworthy and I can promise you that you'll find both in me. I'm a former Special Officer with Central Investigation Bureau and I will work very hard to earn your trust so you can go out of town knowing that your "fur-kid(s)" are in good hands. Just know that I will treat your pet(s) as if they were my own and that I'll treat your home with the respect and care that it deserves. I hope you give me the chance to prove I can be a resource you can count on so please contact me with any questions you may have.

Thanks for your time and consideration.
