I am so glad we found Dog Days. Michael was absolutely amazing. We felt completely confident leaving our boys in his care, loved the text message updates and pics. Having Michael come to our house so the boys could stay home, sleep in their bed and hang out all day together was wonderful. I really dislike crating them and using kennels since I’ve worked at them for years. This was a much better alternative. Thank you Dog Days!

WRIGLEY & MOUSE
We currently use Dog Days to walk our two dogs a couple of days a week. We have a four month old baby, and it has been hard to get out in the colder weather to walk them as often as they need. We have an 11 year old cockapoo and a 1.5 year old lab mix. Michael is great with both of them – they love their walk days with him! Michael is professional, reliable, and just a very nice person. Dog Days is a highly recommended service.

DUKE
I have used Mike (owner of Dog Days) for almost a year now for at least 5 days per week while I’m at work.  I cannot say enough about his professionalism, attendance to my needs, and the trust he has built with me and my dog.  I have a rescue that doesn’t often take to men (other than me) yet he loves Mike.  Mike goes to great length to cover the details and is as reliable as can be.  Rain, snow, cold, heat…it doesn’t matter.  I never worry if he will make it or if my dog (or house and belongings for that matter) will be safe.  If what you are looking for is peace of mind, reliable support for you beloved pet then there really is no other option.  I really cannot say enough about Dog Days and regularly recommend them to people even considering this service.

PEARL
Michael is awesome! He worked with Pearl and Little One everyday while we were out of state on business and vacation. Our schedule had to be extended and he worked it out to be available. Can’t say how much we appreciated that and how calm both girls were when we came home. Thanks again Michael. We will be calling again.

My dogs are my babies and I have to say Michael is fantastic. My two cocker spaniels are both seniors and I hate to leave them. Michael provided me updates every time he saw them and was great with their needs. I strongly recommend his service and I will continue to employee him.

HARLEY & RILEY
Our dogs are precious to us and it’s such a relief to find someone as trustworthy as Michael to take care of them when we’re out of town.  We can leave knowing not only will their basic needs be met, but he’ll also play with them, give them snuggles and text us photos to show how they’re doing throughout the time we’re gone.  He’s very professional and we trust him implicitly in our home.  We’ve used him several times and have quite a few days booked for the rest of the year.  His prices are very reasonable and it’s so nice to not have to worry about boarding. We will continue to recommend Dog Days Kalamazoo to any and everyone!

Very professional service provided by Michael Machota. This is a guy that truly loves what he does and it shows in his work. He has a very good rapport with my dog, Peanut, and gives me updates during the days that he visits him. It is nice knowing that my dog is in good hands while I am away!

RASKAL
Michael of Dog Days simply is a rock star. I’ve used him for vacation pet sitting. He’ll come into your home, assess the situation, document your pet’s and home’s needs and then execute perfectly. He’ll leave you notes on times he was at your house and what was accomplished. Also, if you are ok with it, he will text or email you with updates on how your loved one is doing. Bottom line, if you can’t have your pet stay with a family member, call Michael and introduce him to your family!

Michael is very professional, reliable and a super nice guy. To start, he took the time to get to know our finicky felines and asked all the right questions. He is a great communicator, quick to answer any requests, and will text you pictures of your pampered pets while you are away. I highly recommend his services.

Come snow or ice and more ice and below freezing temps Michael still tended to my naked feline girls!!! He did a wonderful job!! I live on quite a steep hill and he still made it even though he had to park at the top of the hill and walk down. He left me great emails (very detailed) daily so I didn’t have to worry while I was gone. He also went out of his way and shoveled too. I would certainly have him take care of my kids again. Peace of mind and trusting someone with my girls is priceless!! Again…..Thanks so very much

PRINCESS & THOR
Excellent Service!! After hearing other great reviews about Dog Days pet sitting services, we decided to test a quick weekend getaway. Michael was just what we were looking for in a pet sitter. He was very thorough in his first meeting with us and our dogs. We mutually agreed on times that worked best with our dogs’ schedule and the expectation of their “routine”. He followed up while we were away to report how everyone was doing. He was able to accommodate all of our requests. I had comfort in knowing my pups were at home, in their own surroundings, with an honest and reliable person taking care of them. I would highly recommend Dog Days and will be arranging services soon. Thanks again!

Mike did a fabulous job taking care of Daisy over a weekend while I went out of town. I received great, detailed updates of Daisy’s activities each visit along with a couple of cute photos!! So much better than boarding and reasonably priced.

LEIA
My family & I have employed Michael in the past and we are currently utilizing his services. He has taken care of our dog for us while we’ve been out of town for multiple days at a time and he has also come over during the afternoon to let her out/take her for a walk when our work schedules/other obligations didn’t allow us to go home during the lunch hour. We’ve used his services numerous times in the past and expect to utilize his services often moving forward into the future. I am 100% confident in Michael and the services he is able to provide, and I trust him implicitly with the safety, security, and well-being of both our home and our pet. Michael is extremely responsible and diligent, he takes his duties very seriously and always conducts those duties and himself in a highly professional manner. I have and will continue to endorse & recommend Michael to anyone who is looking for the types of services that he is able to provide.

ZULA & TONKA
Michael walked through the house to make sure things were in order, windows/doors locked and checked on the utilities.  His first visit he noticed I had forgotten to lock the down stairs sliding doors and took care of that. He also put the garbage out when needed. Each visit he send me an email after the visit to let me know how things were. I was very comfortable with Michael being in my house when I was not. He had no problems getting my two dogs back into the house and their crates on those occasions. Michael is the first pet sitter I’ve used as previously I was nervous about letting a stranger in my house. But I’ve gotten to know Michael and again feel very comfortable with him in my house and taking care of my ‘kids’. I only have the 4 legged variety of ‘kids’ so, it was important to me to find the right person.
