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.
