Michael was a great host to our pup Rocky. He fell in love with Bella and Koda and when we picked him up he did not want to leave! Michael sent me lots of pictures of the doggies playing and having a good time. We felt really good that Rocky was being well taken care of while we were away. Will certainly use Michael again!

Golden Days Dog Sitting is Top Notch.

Michael was remarkably good with my dog Diesel. It was our first time leaving him alone and I felt reassured and free from worry the entire time. 

If you need someone to watch over your loved ones when your out of town this is the guy to call. I wholeheartedly endorse him and his great loving service.

Michael gets a PAWESOME rating for taking such good care of Evie our 1 year old Boxer pup! We only needed daycare services for one day and Michael graciously took us in last minute. Even for just that one day, Michael sent us photo updates throughout the time. Evie had a blast with his 3 dog companions and came home happy and tired - just what I need in my puppy. Thanks so much Michael! We would love to use you again in the future!

I left my 5 year old Yellow Lab Shasta with Michael O. this past week. It was really fun as well as comforting to get nightly emails with photos of how Shasta was enjoying her vacation! She was so happy in Michael's home. She was glad to see us when she arrived but I know she would LOVE to go back. She snored all night the evening she arrived back from Golden Days Sitting.....this assures me she had a great time! I would recommend Michael O's Golden Days Sitting to ANYONE who wants their dog to be treated with the TLC he offers!

This dog sitter was great. My dog was very happy staying there. I hope to use him again

Michael was very friendly and welcoming of our dog. Our kids really enjoyed the pictures he sent while we were on vacation.

Michael at Golden Days Dog Sitting was extremely patient and caring with my dog. This was the first time he's been cared for in a home with a person/surroundings unknown to him. Michael was in communication with me to let me know how he was acclimating every step of the way, he even sent pictures. I would recommend Michael without hesitation.

Susan M.

This was our first time boarding with Michael took great care of our dogs, Roscoe and Annie, who came home tired and happy. Very pleased with our entire experience.

Trisha C.

Michael was great to work with for our Treeing Walker Coonhound's stay with him. Douglas had a great time and Michael sent us lots of pictures to share with us his great time!!! I would highly recommend Michael to other dog owners and we hope to use him again in the future!!! Douglas thanks you also Michael!!!

Ms Chloe felt quite at home when she arrived, greeted by the others on their vacay. Michael greeted Ms Chloe affectionately and met her Mom who was quite impressed on how well he handled all the visitors. There was plenty of room with four big dogs in the place...great job Michael!

Martha S.

Michael was very flexible and east to deal with. Our meet & greet turned into a trial run day care. I was concerned about his large dogs. He immediately put me at ease with all the pictures of my boy looking right at home. Bella & Koda were very sweet, docile and playful. My boy had a great time and is looking forward to hanging with his new BFFs again.

I've been using Michael to watch my two black labs, Chloe and Brutus, for a few years now, and I absolutely adore him. He will not hesitate to call me if he thinks my dogs need something or has a question. When I'm out of town and want to check on my dogs, he always provides a detailed outline as to what the dogs are doing, eating and their overall well being. This is especially important to me since one of my dogs is old, so I tend to worry about him more.He is so attentive with my dogs and I have complete trust that when I'm gone, they are in good hands. Literally the only person I call when I am out of town.

Katie M

Michael was incredible!! He completely took care of our babies and was the perfect chaperone to them for our wedding. We couldn’t have had them there without you Michael! Thank you so much! We are beyond grateful!!

Anha R.

Michael was an amazon sitter. His communication was amazing and he made Jake stay right at home! Will continue to book everytime we stay out of town. Thanks Michael!

James K

I used Golden Pet Services once before for a long weekend for cat feeding/litter box cleaning services. The company seems very professional, and setting up the service was seamless (as they have an online booking website). Michael, the owner, was responsive and sent daily photos and updates on the cats. I will definitely use his services again.

Bonnie M.

Golden Day Pet Services is like the Ritz-Carton for Dogs! Michael has the best customer service ever and my dog gets the royal treatment every time he stays the night! My dog Duke is so happy when I drop him off! Michael sends pictures, posts, and updates on Dukes daily activities. I know he is in good hands with Michael and I do not worry about his care when I am out of town. I highly recommend Golden Days Pet Services!!!

Shelair J.

This was my first time trying out home boarding for Buddy, my 11-year-old young-at-heart Golden Retriever. Communication with Michael was good with clear direction and quick response time! Buddy looked happy and well taken care of during his two-night stay. My favorite part had to be getting the photos during his stay with Michael.

Lori H

Michael was wonderful with our two dogs who have rarely been boarded or in contact with other dogs. Michael is professional, reliable and communicates well so that we knew how our boys were doing. He sent us photos, and we could tell our golden and pit bull were happy campers. Thank you, Michael!

Robby G

I always feel very comfortable leaving my dog Bowie with Michael! He is very attention detailed and I really appreciate that! I will continue to use him for future trips without a doubt!

Mark Y.

Such a great experience! Needed a sitter last minute for the 4th of July and had never boarded my Goldendoodle before. Michael made everything super easy and smooth, I went out of town with not a care in the world. Going to book him again in the future for sure!

Miette L.

I'm SO glad to have a comfortable place for my big old man (Husky/Lab, 14 y/o) to stay. Thank you so much for your kindness and for letting him stay  where he was comfortable (outside). It was much easier traveling knowing he wasn't just sitting in a kennel, but in the company of caring humans and other furry friends!

Vanessa M.

Loved getting pics every day of my fur baby :) no problems here, fast and easy booking, and very thorough pre-screening questions make me feel like  he really cared about my dog's well-being and routines, so he could get to know her well. Would definitely recommend.

Joanne P

Very professional. Both Herbie and Kaja were very relaxed when we picked them up. Both dogs are older and can be anxious but I did not see any signs of that. Thank you Michael for taking good care of them

Phillip H

Michael was amazing. Our regular dog sitter cancelled on us 48 hours before we were flying out on vacation. He took them on Thanksgiving night! Totally life saver. The puppies came back exhausted from all the playing they had done. I can't recommend him high enough for saving us. Thank you!

Daniela P

Michael did a great job taking care of our lab Siena while we vacationed for two weeks! Siena seemed content with Michael and his dogs from the very beginning of her vacation stay. We were updated with photos almost daily and could just tell from the photos that she was happy and taken care of. Would definitely recommend Michael and will for sure use him again for Siena!

Raquel S

I highly recommend Golden Days Pet Services. The owner, Michael, is really nice and very accommodating - not to mention flexible with his schedule. I felt as ease the moment I dropped my dog off. MISCHIEF was well taken care of, when I went out of town and such a happy dog when I came to pick her back up. I dare say, she didn't want to leave. LOL! I'll definitely be using Michael for all of my future pet needs. His prices are great and the peace of mind alone, is WELL worth it. You won't be disappointed! Thank you again, Michael!

Jonah M

Sophie and Dior love when Michael comes to visit. He takes great care of them and even leaves daily progress notes for us to read upon our return. Michael also made an adorable video montage of their adventures!

Danielle & Michael F

Michael was so great with our Golden (and first baby) Emery. She was certainly a little unsure about being left for the weekend but Michael, Koda & Bella made Em feel right and home. Michael was VERY patient while she adjusted to a new environment. By the time we picked her up, she wasn't sure if she wanted to come home! Thank you Michael! We appreciate it more than you know!

Jennifer S

Michael is a professional! My little Lola spent a week at his place and even though I was worried about how she would get along with other dogs, she did great. I got pics during the week so I could see she was doing well. I highly recommend Michael. p.s., if you think your dog needs his/her bed - they don't! I brought it in spite of his recommendation not to, and she didn't even use it and of course it got "marked" by another vacationer. Lol.

Emmitt S.

I had a last minute opportunity to take the wife and daughter with me on a business trip and needed a sitter for our King Charles Cavalier. I posted the opportunity on Rover and received a prompt and courteous response from Michael. Since this was my first time on the platform, Michael was kind and patient in guiding me through the process. Rioux was well taken care of and we got pictures as requested to keep us connected. Thank's Michael. We will definitely repeat!

John L

Michael was a wonderful host to our two pups, Dunster and Merlin. They stayed for almost a week and were both so comfortable I think they would have stayed longer if we let them. We will definitely use Michael next time we need a cozy place for the pups to stay while we're away. >;0)

Joe R.

Michael is no doubt an animal lover. He went beyond the call of duty and took very good care of our labs not to mention our two cats.
Will I refer him to friends or would I use him again?

You bet!

Robby G.

I always feel very comfortable leaving my dog Bowie with Michael! He is very attention detailed and I really appreciate that! I will continue to use him for future trips without a doubt!

Mike C.

When I booked Micheal to watch Bailey I was impressed with how professional and organized he was. He responded very quickly to all my questions. When I dropped Bailey off his house is set up for dogs. You can tell he loves what he does and the dogs love being there. I highly recommend using Micheal for all your dog's needs. I definitely will be taking Bailey again. Thank you

David & Anh R

Michael was definitely pawsome with our pup, Fozzy! We had gone away for our mini-moon and needed someone to take care of our fur-baby. We did a meet n greet to make sure Fozzy would get along with Michael's dogs. All was good and then we dropped off Fozzy. We got many many updates during our mini-moon and Fozzy was having so much fun! Also want to add that Michael's place is totally awesome for dogs. He has outdoor space, indoor space and works from home so the dogs were never left unsupervised. Thank you so much Michael for helping us out and taking care of our fluffbutt.

We have trusted Michael with our husky pup Sasha numerous times and he always does a great job. Sasha is very high energy and pretty much a handful- and Michael always takes her with open arms and a smile. On several occasions we have requested sitting with very little advance notice and Michael always comes through. Huge thanks!

Julie N

Michael did a great job with Leia and my last minute request. The intake process was smooth and I'll definitely be bringing Leia back!

Jessica L

When we get to the place, my pup jumps out of the and heads right to the door to get in. He's so excited to see and spend time with his friends. You know he loves his stay because when we return he dives through the door and me with it. Pictures are sent and really makes my day that he's having a blast.

Sharon F

Michael was a very gracious host. Tucker was comfortable and felt at home with Michael and his dog family. Michael's home is clean, organized and very well laid out for his doggy hotel. I received lots of pictures of Tucker while I was away which was great. I would feel very comfortable leaving Tucker there again!

Jacqueline B

First, I was so concerned about leaving my puppy. I have never left him with anyone. When I searched for options, DogVacay seemed like the best. When I met Michael, I knew right away that Kingston would be in excellent hands. He assured me that Kingston would be fine. We sat and talked for a long time. His home is very dog friendly and cozy. He sent me pictures daily and updates while on vacation. When we returned he was so happy to see us yet he went to Michael to play. That made me so happy. We will be back.

Nancy B

Woofy loves going to Michael's...he can't wait to get in the front door! We really enjoy the dogVacay photos too...they are un to receive on a daily basis. Micheal is a pleasure to work with, always patient and professional. I highly recommend Michael. Nancy & Woofy

Srikar B

This was the first time I used Dogvacay and was naturally a little apprehensive. But Michael took great care of my two dogs. He also ensured that they got along well with his own pack. Overall, very happy with the experience.

Lauren G

Michael was friendly and very easy to communicate with. He has a great set up for all his pet visitors. Our Aussie Mix had a blast at his doggie day camp and is looking forward to going back for some boarding this summer!

Roxie B

Michael is quick and efficient to respond, provided easy drop off, and he sent pictures of our dog during our weekend getaway. Thank you, Michael!

Jenna D.

Michael is fantastic! He was very professional with us and when we dropped our pup off he was very welcoming and instantly gave so much attention to our pup. Our pup instantly loved him. When we picked him up I knew our pup had a good weekend because he didn't pee all over himself and did not look fatigued and famished as he usually presents after being boarded. He truly looked happy. I was able to maintain contact with Michael throughout the stay asking how our pup was and on one occasion he sent pics (wish he sent more!) which made me happy. Next time we visit CA we will definitely use Michael again!
