My puppy, Buddy, stayed with Kierstyn for over 5 weeks while I was away. That was a short notice arrangement, and Kierstyn responded right away.

I whole-heartedly recommend Kierstyn to walk or watch your dog! She's a wonderfully warm, reliable person who has a great, calming way with dogs.

I couldn't have asked for a kinder or more responsible person to hang out with him.

When Kierstyn watches your pet

I live by Riverside Park so I enjoy taking walks there! There are also dog parks in Riverside that I love bringing dogs to (as long as the owner is on board with that).
