Mike is absolutely amazing with my crazy girl! I have a one year old akita, who is full of life and energy so when I went back to work after covid shut down I didn’t know what I was going to do. Then I found mike! He’s been easy to contact reliable and understanding. These are all good qualities of course but the number one for me is that he over all cares for my sweet girl he loves her as well and she adores him. She even knows his name her tail goes crazy when I say mike is coming???? another thing that I absolutely love is that he gives medical advice since she is my first baby I’ve been very protective of her and have anxiety when it comes to her health. Recently she had PLPO surgery and when I told mike he was so willing and knew exactly how to handle her and I don’t think her recovery would have gone as smoothly if I hadn’t had him walk her. As I said she’s my first dog and I worry but he always tells me what he thinks it may be, not to worry, and if and when I should take her into the vet. It helps ease my mind especially knowing how well informed he is. It’s awesome! If your looking for a walk walker/pet sitter there is no one I’d recommend more! He also takes the best pictures????

Mike is super knowledgeable about animal care and is a professional. I recently moved to the area and was nervous about trusting a new pet sitter with my 2 cats (one of which needs daily medication). I have now been using Mike's pet sitting service for almost 4 months and found Mike to be reliable and trustworthy. Even when I was on vacation for more than a week, the cats were doing great when I got back. It is a huge worry off of my shoulders to know that the house is being watched and the animals are well cared for when I am away. It is also a huge plus that in case there is a medical emergency, Mike has a vet tech background. And thanks Mike for the cat photos!

Booked Mike the day before I left on vacation because previous arrangements fell through. Mike made time to stop by and get the rundown before I left. Took good care of my two cats while I was away. Thanks Mike

We met Mike when our beloved Siamese cat was not doing well. We just found out that he had a tumor and he wasn't eating his food. We contacted Mike who immediately had a wealth of knowledge and experience to …

Mike has been a great find for us and our giant and rambunctious labradors! He is extremely professional and knowledgeable, while being very kind, funny and flexible. It is extremely comforting to know he is also an experienced vet tech with a wealth of knowledge and experience. Mike is great with our animals, our schedule, our home and has brought us great help with our pair of huge labs! This is his business, he treats it as such and is highly professional. He is quick to respond, help and answer any question. We recommend him highly! He even took this pic of my dogs while i was at work!

I have used many pet sitters over the past 10 years for our kitties. Mike is by far the most qualified, intelligent and caring sitter you will find. Mike is a person whose job is their passion and he intuitively knows the nature of animals. Mike is someone you can trust and feel comfortable with in your home with your pets, this is reflected in the outstanding work he does for our family. Mike was also able to accommodate our special needs kitty with diabetes, which is a rare find for a sitter. Mike is not your average pet sitter, he is reserved for those who love and treat their pets as family members, thank you Mike.

Mike has been unbelievable! We moved to San Clemente a few months ago and could not be happier with his care of our dog! She is always excited to go walk with him. He is very flexible with us. Could not recommend him more! He also has a ton of veterinarian experience which puts us at ease. You pet would be in great hands!!!

We have been using Mike Russell to take care of our cats when we are out of town for many years. Mike was instrumental in helping us with our elderly cats that needed several medications on a daily basis. He is now seeing our young kitties when we are regularly out of town and he does a fantastic job. He has our complete trust and we couldn’t ask for a better person to take care of our babies. Highly recommend!

Mike gets my highest recommendation! I wouldn't trust anyone else this much with my babies (aka, dogs). Having used several pet sitters and boarding facilities over the years, I was so grateful when I found Mike two years ago. Not only is …

Mike is great! His veterinary experience is a huge sigh of relief for me as I have two large dogs whom have both had knee surgeries. When I'm out of town I get picture texts and check ins from him which are so comforting. And just the other …

Mike was a great help with our 13 year old Akita who passed away in November of last year. He would check him out and give us advice on how to ensure he had as comfortable a life as possible right to the very end. We now have an 11 month …
