Kris Michaels, Owner and Dog Mom

I am a loving dog mom turned full-time dog walker and sitter who is certified in pet first aide and CPR. I have two wonderful rescue dogs, Artie and Tiger. I'm passionate about taking great care of animals and working to ensure their wellbeing.  


I'm available 24/7 and offer walks, drop-in visits, sitting at your home, or boarding at my house. At my house, I have a fully fenced in yard (a must with my terrier Artie) and lots of space to run around in. For walks or drop-in visits, I'm happy to come at whatever time is convenient for you. 


My goal in forming Capital Area Pups was twofold. First, to provide caring, reliable, and convenient services for pups and their parents. Second, to eventually provide employment opportunities for adults with developmental disabilities as dog walking assistants. My sister, Maria, has Downs Syndrome and her connection with animals is truly amazing.
