This is the second time our boxer, Linus, has stayed with Kathy. First was for 2 weeks over Christmas and most recently for 5 days while we were on vacation. I cannot say enough great things about Kathy and her care for all dogs! She truly is the best!!!! She always sends updates and pictures daily, Linus always comes home happy/healthy and tired! Thank you, Kathy!

The boarding didn't work out. We had to pick up our dog in the same day, because she couldn't handle him. The price was not adjusted, even though he stayed only the half of the time.

My dog Bailey loves playing with other dogs especially ones closer to her age. Kathy has 3 that are under 4 and no surprise bailey had a wonderful day there. She will be going back again.
