Vacation Pet Sitting and Property Check

One of the advantages to hiring me for pet sitting is that I’m diligent in checking the house mechanicals & basement. I recently noticed a client’s water heater was leaking and quickly shut it down. This included turning the water heater completely off as well as cutting the gas supply to it. Here’s an excerpt of the customer’s email to me:

“Hi Mike, Thank you so much for being alert to my malfunctioning water heater. I guess I never thought about how old it might be–installed when the house was built 20 years ago. I have to replace two things, one of which you mentioned (the overflow valve). Thank you for being alert.”

Remember that not all pet sitters and dog walkers are alike.  For some it is just a side project or a hobby.  For me this is my full-time profession.  I treat your pets AND your home as if they were my own.  This means you have nothing to worry about while you’re gone.  Not only will your dogs or cats have less stress staying home instead of being boarded, you have me physically checking on the house and catching problems like this water leak before it became a BIG issue!

Riley & Coco appreciate the midday stops

One of the services that I provide is midday dog walking for people who work long hours or have busy schedules and need someone to let their dog out.  I schedule the visit for 20-30 minutes so your dog has plenty of time to get outside and take care of business.  Here Riley & Coco play in the snow last week at lunchtime.  I am fortunate to see these two every week!

I currently have availability to fit 2-3 more clients between the hours of 10am–3pm Monday through Friday.  Ideally, if you live within Kalamazoo city limits, Portage, or Vicksburg.  I give a discounted rate of $15. per visit for those of you needing midday dog walking every Monday-Friday.  That is $5. off my regular rate of $20. per visit.

The benefit of hiring DOG DAYS Kalamazoo versus another company or individual is:
This is my full-time job and not a side project. My attention is you and your pets, not being somewhere else.
I’m Licensed, Bonded, and Insured, and a Limited Liability Company (LLC).
As the owner/operator, I am the sole employee and I do not have other people doing my work for me.
I started this business in 2013 because I wanted to help other dog owners such as  my wife and I who needed Quality, Professional Pet Care.

Please take the time to read what some of my clients have to say about me here under “Testimonials”.  I also have reviews on my DOG DAYS Facebook page, and on  I welcome the opportunity to help you out middays Monday through Friday so you don’t have to worry about who’s going to let your dog out.  Let me, Michael Machota, owner of DOG DAYS Kalamazoo be there for you.

Harley takes it easy

Like most of you, I don’t want to board my dogs.  That’s why there’s DOG DAYS Kalamazoo available to watch your dog or cat while you’re away.  While I do not stay overnight at your house, I make up to 3 trips per day for 30minutes each visit.  These stops are early AM, afternoon, and at night. When your pet stays at home there are these 5 advantages:

1.  Less stress, since your dog or cat gets to be in its own environment at home.
2.  No worries about catching something from other pets in a boarding facility.
3.  Someone to check on your house, bring in the mail/paper, and make sure everything is in order.
4.  You can leave for your trip and not have to be concerned with dropping off your pet.
5.  Detailed reports via email or text after each visit to give you that “peace of mind” that all’s well.

So, when you are wondering “what do I do with my pet when I want to go on vacation?” Remember that DOG DAYS Kalamazoo is here to serve you!
