Kim has taken care of my lab mix, Butter Biscuit, several times. I trust her wholeheartedly with caring for him. She treats her animals with kindness and respect, and she has a deep knowledge of canine psychology, behavior, and training. She knows all of the best places in town to take dogs, and she communicates frequently so I know Butter is safe, healthy, and happy. When I go out of town, Kim is the first ...

What Kim would like to know about your dog

Is your dog social with other dogs?
Does s/he ride well in the car?
Are there any areas your dog is uncomfortable being touched/petted? (Ie- paws, neck, tummy)
Does your dog enjoy being brushed?
Does your dog have any specific fears I should be aware of? (ie- thunder, vacuum, fireworks,etc)
What words does your dog associate with praise? Correction? Calm?
Are there certain types of people your dog is avoidant, reactionary, or nervous around? (Children, wo/men, uniformed)
I have a very sweet, large German Shepherd dog & understand many of the things that make the breed so unique. While he adores little dogs and small animals such as cats, bunnies, & chickens, I understand that his size & appearance can make small dogs apprehensive & therefore group the dogs I work with into small-medium and medium-large groups for walks & hikes and keep a seperate bedroom set up to host overnight boarders that are small-medium in size. While I live in an apartment, I am either home with or actively out, interacting with & supervising the dogs 85% of the waking hours each day or more. Quiet time/sleeping hours for overnight boarders are typically 10:30 pm - 6:30 am, with a "nap/quiet time" from 1:30-3:00 pm to prevent over-stimulation & to allow for rest. Additionally, I have security/surveillance cameras installed & actively being monitored during any absences (under 2 hours) such as a trip to the grocery store or an appointment.

When Kim watches your pet

There are many factors taken into consideration when planning each dog's daily schedule. Depending upon your dogs' specific needs, age, energy level, predominant breed, health, and size, current temperatures & weather conditions, your dog will be provided with 1-1 training as needed or assigned to an appropriately balanced "pack" or group to participate in a combination of walks to a nearby, neighborhood park for potty breaks, 1-2x/day, longer walks to & from & around Liberty Park, The Avenues, lesser known, local dog parks for off-leash play time, and up to City Creek, Emmigration Canyon, or Mill Creek Canyon for some "splash & play" fun on hotter days.
