About Michaela

I offer quality dog walks suitable to your schedule.

Upon availability, I offer housesitting services as well.

Dogs deserve an active, healthy lifestyle, and I would love to help you achieve that for your loved pup.

I have lived with animals my whole life and when I was young, I trained our family dog, Nani, who would respond to cues and was very well behaved (especially for a hunting dog). I am also a house-sitter with experience minding Terriers, Briards, and even a Great Dane puppy! I have house-sitted in many countries around the world, from Italy and Switzerland, to America, so I know that each pet has their individual needs based on the breed, their personality, and their location. Because I have housesitted for people who are traveling, I am excellent at staying in contact and communicating about your pets.

I love all animals. In fact, I worked at a bird rescue center as a baby bird nurse and have participated in many educational campaigns about animal welfare. That is to say, your dog will not only be enriched by a walk, but you can be assured that they will be in very good care.

I can groom, feed or otherwise take care of your pet depending on your needs. If appropriate, I can even jog with your dog for extra exercise.

If you feel like we’re a good fit, then please get in touch!

Some things about me:

  • I am from the Czech Republic
  • I have a MA in Languages and Cultures and am very interested in anthropology. I am currently doing a postgraduate at UU.
  • Am very active and love to run, walk, and rock climb

    Michaela was great, she took good care of the animals, sending us nice pics periodically. She also took good care of our home, this was the first time a house/pet sitter ever cleaned well let alone washing and changing the sheets. 10 out of 10, will hire again.

    I have been a dog owner for over 10 years. My dog was trained by a professional and I was there and actively participated in her training. Also, I have helped a friend train his two young huskies. I worked at a bird rescue center and as a falconer, which indicates my care for animal welfare and attention to detail.
