DOG DAYS Kalamazoo
PO Box 184,
DOG DAYS Kalamazoo is a full-time Dog Walking and Pet Sitting company that is locally owned and operated by Michael Machota. Licensed, Bonded, and Insured.
When I met my wife Lisa, we each had one dog. I had Ringo the yellow Labrador Retriever, while Lisa had Nikki the American Eskimo. Ringo & Nikki have since passed away. We currently have two dogs Rupert & Walt. Both are Pit Bull mixes we adopted from Kalamazoo County Animal Services & Enforcement (KCASE). We adopted Rupert in May 2014 and Walt in May 2017. My family has owned both cats and dogs since I was a child. If you re looking for a dog, please visit the Facebook page of Save Our Strays, Kalamazoo County to learn more about adoptable dogs from KCASE. Remember Adopt! Don't shop!
One of the reasons I started Dog Days was out of a need we have getting someone trustworthy to watch our dogs, Ringo (RIP) & Rupert, when we're away. We always felt bad going on vacation or up north for a weekend getaway knowing they would be boarded. We wished there was someone we could TRUST to be in our home to take care of our best friends. Bothering neighbors, co-workers, or friends didn't seem like a good option, so Dog Days came to be. You can go on vacation, have a weekend getaway, or take that extra shift knowing Dog Days will be there.
This is my full-time job, not a side project. Each and every client is important to me.
I treat your home and pets as if they were my own.
Dog Days focus is you and your pet. No silly gimmicks.

Do you have a busy schedule or work long hours? No worries if there's a last minute change of plans, Dog Days is here to help you! I can do midday visits and dog walking on short notice in the Kalamazoo area. This includes a 20-30 minute walk or playtime, feeding/water and administering any medications.
Going on vacation and don't want to board your dog or cat? Dog Days is the answer. I can visit your home three times a day to care for your pet. I also do one-way and round trip pet transport. Confirm house systems operational at time of visit. Take care of mail, newspaper, garbage and plants.
