It surprisingly, Kathy & Craig were great. They are very thorough in their preparation, care, and communication. A high level of professionalism, practical know-how, flexibility, and genuine love of dogs are hallmarks for this caregiver. Highly recommended!

We only trust Kathy and Craig to watch out pup, Max, while we’re out of town. We have been using them for boarding services for over three years now! Thank you, Kathy & Craig!

Chewy has an absolute blast every time he stays here! Comes back happy and exhausted (in a good way) from playing with all his buddies. He's been there a few times now and we can't imagine having him stay anywhere else while we're away. Thank you Kathy! :)

Thank you Kari - Chewy is a sweetie! We love having him with us. Kathy & Craig

Dog Haven of Des Moines

Dog Haven is located just 10 minutes from SeaTac Airport.
We send photo updates all during our guests stay, as often as you would like to see them. We are devoted to providing a healthy and happy home for our own pets, but limit our ownership to two dogs. Our passion for happy dogs goes way beyond just two ... we provide that "home away from home" confidence that a dog owner needs. We strive to ...

What Kathy would like to know about your dog

When Kathy watches your pet

We provide lots of outdoor exercise in our very large backyard & fenced hillside with trails cut through for running & play. We do not take dogs out to the streets for walks. We live in a secluded & safe neighborhood but our property size allows for lots of exercise and play.

All dogs sleep in a dog bed, dog pad or crate at the foot our bed. Some sleep on our bed if needed to make them feel at home. We want everyone close at hand if there were ever an emergency during the night. We have a well practiced emergency plan if ever needed.

We are retired and work from home, so pets have our companionship 24 hours a day. (Hopefully we all get to sleep about 8 hrs!) We treat guest dogs as we do our own - which means lots of petting, cuddling, lap sitting, and playtime in the yard.
