The team at DogMa is passionate about pups! We are a group of dog-kissing people with Wisconsin roots who are deeply tied to local rescue, fostering canines, and raising pets of our own. Our lives have been and continue to be enriched by our relationship with animals. Our beds are never empty and our hearts are always full.
Our mission at DogMa is to ensure your furry family members are comfortable, happy and having fun while you travel. Whether it’s an extended vacation overseas or a simple day trip, one of our DogMas will make sure your dog is well-cared for so that you can relax and enjoy your time away. We customize care for each individual animal based on his/her daily routine, activity level, play pal preferences, environmental likes/dislikes etc. You’ll receive text updates with photos and videos so that you know your pooch is livin’ it up while you’re away. Bringing together professionalism, intuition, plus motherly and fatherly love - the DogMas are committed to providing exceptional care for your pets.

Welcome to Doggy by Nature.
This is the hiking side of our business. We are pleased to offer daily group hikes for your active canines.
Craig Michaels (Owner, Doggy by Nature) is a Wisconsin boy with a deep love for animals. He’s been hiking/training dogs all over the country since 2006 (Los Angeles, D.C., Austin & Madison). His connection with dogs is apparent the moment you meet him - watch him work and you’ll see the ever-present, natural bond the dogs have with him. Craig blends patience, trust-building, intuition and nearly 14 years of positive-reinforcement-training experience to create a safe and loving environment for your pup.
All hikes take place at our private, 12-acre farm where your dog can socialize in nature while learning to hike and work as a team. This Hike x Train program serves as an alternative to traditional kennel daycare. Your pup will be stimulated with structured exploration in nature and worn out upon returning home.
