Our Services


PET Sitting

Avoid old-fashioned, cold and sterile boarding facilities, and let Dog's Best Friend fill your pet sitting needs. Animals may be uncomfortable outside of their normal environment and may experience separation anxiety; relieve your pets of this potential stress by allowing us to care for your pet in the comfort of your own home.  A professional groomer and former veterinary assistant, Dog's Best Friend Founder Michelle Emmi is able to care for pets of all ages and can accommodate a wide range of needs, including pets requiring medical issue management.

Daily, weekly, and overnight (live-in) rates available.

House Sitting

We are pleased to offer house sitting services to our clients - you do not need to own a pet to utilize this service, however for pet sitting clients, house sitting amenities are included in the pet sitting overnight rate. Deter would-be criminals by allowing us to maintain a normal "at home" presence at your residence while you are away. Services may include, but are not limited to: newspaper and mail collection, outdoor upkeep (snow removal, lawn/garden mowing and watering), housekeeping, home organization, grocery shopping (don't come home to an empty fridge!), and other services upon request. 

Daily Check-in

Spending longer days at the office lately? Have a last minute emergency and won't be home for a while? We're always on call to check in on your pets! A minimum of twenty-four hours notice is preferred, but we are happy to accommodate on less notice subject to availability.


Regular (monthly) grooming is essential to your pet's health. Dog's Best Friend offers professional grooming services from the convenience of your home. Founder Michelle Emmi offers personalized service, taking into consideration customer preference and grooming patterns specific to dog breed. Dog's Best Friend uses high quality organic products that are gentle on your dog's skin and coat. Plus, your dog will wag their tail in happiness as they prance down the block showing off their shiny, soft coat! 

Our Pom-A-Poo Louie absolutely adores Michelle, and so do we! When we’re traveling, we know Louie is being loved, exercised, and fed to his heart’s content. Plus, he’s freshly groomed upon our return! Worth every penny...

Dogs benefit physically and mentally from regularly scheduled daily walks. For those with regular pet assistance needs, we are happy to provide permanent, or semi-permanent pet walking services.
