Client Testimonials

"Michelle saved my vacation. One day before departure I was forced to find a sitter for my 2 little rescue dogs. She fit me into her schedule and took great care of them. She then saved me again when my flight was canceled and I arrived home a day later. Without skipping a beat she assured me the dogs would be fine, she'd take care of them. She will be my go-to sitter from now on. You won't find anyone better."

-Fran A, Carmel Valley, CA

"We came to Monterey with our kids to the aquarium and used Michelle to watch our Rosie for the day. She had a great time and I could enjoy myself knowing she was being well taken care of! I wish we lived closer so I could use her services more often! Highly recommend her!"

-Kristen B, Chico, CA

"Michelle is amazing! We have two Australian Shepherd dogs. The older one hated getting groomed at the large facilities, but was so much happier with her! They always look so adorable after her stellar grooming skills! Always on time and great with communication! Love the All-Starr experience!"

-Carol G, Carmel Valley, CA

"I just love Michelle! She is always on time, takes her time with Bug (our 4 year old pit bull) and always is very attentive. Her prices are very reasonable and she always has a friendly smile. ALSO... Shes like the post man... rain, snow, sleet or shine= she comes to rescue!"

-Brittney O, Carmel Valley, CA

"I have been using Michelle to pet sit my precious mini schnauzer, Pearl, and cat, Peanut, for several years. She is very knowledgeable on animals, and gives them tons of love when I'm out of town. She sends me pictures and updates that let me know they are doing well so I can relax and enjoy my vacation. She also takes Pearl for daycare and gives her lots of walks! Very trustworthy!"

-Peggy G, Carmel, CA

"​Michelle is the best! I highly recommend her daily to everyone I know and strangers too! She treats my pup like he is her own. And he loves her. My Cavapoo Ollie had his very first hair cut/spa day with Michelle and we were thrilled! Michelle is so gentle, caring and knowledgeable and my pup loves her. I would never take him anywhere else. And she not only does an amazing job, she is efficient and Ollie never has to go in a crate and wait to be groomed for hours. She picks him up and drops him off and he is always so excited to see her so I know he is good hands. I have referred numerous dog owners to her since she not only grooms, but dog walks, and pet sits! Michelle is a pro and we love her!!!! I can go on and on and on..." 

-Jill M, Carmel, CA

"Michelle has been grooming my dog Tango for several months now. She is awesome! She picks him up at my business, takes him home shampoos and trims him, whatever is needed, Then she brings him back. He doesn’t have to stay in a crate all day . I just asked Michelle to watch Tango for a few days and nights. He was so well cared for. She kept me updated. He was so happy to be with her. I wouldn’t hesitate to leave him again."

-Vicki W, Monterey, CA

"Michelle has groomed our dog Oso several times and she has always done a FANTASTIC job. She’s great about communicating what she is going to do and why and is enthusiastic to help with other pet needs and recommending affordable and effective products. Apart from Oso coming home smelling clean and feeling so, so soft one of my favorite things about Michelle is her flexibility! Truly, you will not go wrong hiring Michelle!"

-Natalie F, Carmel Valley, CA

"Michelle has looked after our four cats several times, and we (and the cats!) have been very happy with her attention to detail, her reliability and, most important, her loving care for the cats. Michelle also trims their claws (no easy feat)! When we come home from a trip, we find the cats happy and relaxed and the house well looked-after. I highly recommend Michelle's services." 

-Rena H, Pacific Grove, CA

"Michelle is the finest example of caring, commitment and compassion. While my husband was ill, then passed, Michelle was there for our Labrador, Boston. Michelle understood that it was as difficult for Boston as it was for us. Michelle was there for whatever was needed and whenever we needed her. Knowing that I did not have to worry about Boston during this very difficult time made all the difference."

-Lisa W, Carmel, CA

"Michelle is the best! She’s friendly and knowledgeable and has helped me with everything from overnight care, to dog walks, to nail trims and more! She’s competitively priced and always makes time for her clients. I wouldn’t use anybody else for my pets."

-Julia G, Monterey, CA

"I have been so happy with Michelle's care of Lakota (Service Dog). She truly cares and tailored their routine to meet our special needs. I really don't know what I'd do without her!"

-Angi H, Monterey, CA

"While I have not yet had a need to employ Michelle Starr for my pets, I have had numerous occasions to call upon her expertise at Pet Food Express in the Crossroads. She knows her stuff, that's for sure! I would have no problem giving her the keys to my house and the leash's to my beloved dogs. She is clearly a young lady of intelligence, education, and integrity." 

-Michelle W, Carmel, CA

Michelle is fantastic! Super trustworthy, and most importantly friendly and reliable!

-Sam L, Carmel Valley, CA

Michelle took care of our beloved pet who was 15 years old. She was very helpful when she passed away. We now have a new precious pet and Michelle grooms him and takes care of him for overnights and day care. He enjoys all the fun he has being with her!

-Jill S, Carmel, CA

"Michelle is the best when it comes to treating your pet to a spa day or taking a hike. Our Roxy loved the time she spent with Michelle overnight or just for the your Pup or kitty a favor and let them visit for some tender loving care. I promise your pet will love her and so will you!"

-Anita S, Salinas, CA
