Dylan's first boarding experience with the dynamic Kelly H team. We loved all the photos of Dylan's new best friends, and think he had an awesome time at "summer camp." We'll definitely board again in the future and k now he is in the very best care. Thank you!

Kelly was wonderful watching our beagle, Maggie! She was flexible working with us and sent us lots of pics. Would definitely use again.

2 Animal Lovers Making Paw Prints

Hello we are Kelly and Joey a husband and wife team with what is now quite a few years of pampering Seattle pups. We have our own Mr. Handsome Pants Doodle named Harry who is currently 12 and was one of our first Rover clients! We live in the North Seattle Community College (and now the elementary and middle schools) area in a 2 level duplex. We both grew up with at least 2 or ...

What Kelly would like to know about your dog

We do not accept dogs that are trained to pee or poop inside (on pee pads or training pads), Surprisingly they will pee and poop in our house which is unacceptable. We have a small yard open to pups for potty. This is our only request. Inside poops or pees = no returns. Shyness is fine but aggression is a deal breaker. Harry is the King and if he is in any danger the other dog will be seperated via fence. Food aggression, motivation, obssession is a different story. This is natural dog instinct and we just seperate for feedings. Now counter surfing is a deal breaker too.

When Kelly watches your pet

We have been forced to get mobile with dogs that need off leash fun. Just holler at us. We make it happen for Harry all the time =)

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Pretty much any sleeping option. And yes, tell us if they snore please.

Time I'll spend with your dog
My husband works from home, while I work full-time at the UW Oncology Dept There will be at least one person at home to look after your pets for a majority of the day. Harry is a super calm guy and tends to have a calming effect on other pups. Plus we prefer tired, worn out from catching the ball dogs. But generally someone is home most of every day.

Time I'll spend with your dog
We believe in at least an hour of physical play/walking plus requisite scratches, pats, pets, hugs, and talking to each day. Rope pulling and shaking? Yes! Fetch in the longest possible distance of the house? Yes! Squeaking of toys? Yes! Foot warmer at computer desk? Oh yeah! We enjoy the play too lol. We are firm believers in the saying "A tired dog is a happy dog." This is in addition to the two miles Harry and I walk each day so expect 2-3 walks depending on weather and 2-3 miles at least a day depending on pup size.

Extra house-sitting services
Always an option! Ask if you'd like a thorough house keeping job done. We even have a Rug Doctor if you'd like carpets cleaned. Let us know and we can discuss price. Just as an extra note, these are not guaranteed services but can be negotiated. Clean house (if left that way) will stay that way.
