Kim is far and away the absolute best pet sitter out there. I have used several sitters on this site, all of which were great...but Kim is on a completely different level! The love and attention she shows my hound dog is evident when my dog doesn't get excited when I come to get her! The photos and videos throughout the stays are awesome and come all throughout the stay. My hound is treated ...

Kim is great! I received multiple pics and videos during my pup's stay, and he was happy and tired when I picked him up. He quickly ate and passed out as soon as we got home. Definite signs of a great stay!

I’m sitting on my couch New Years Day snuggled up in a cute blanket that Kim gave Bourbon for Christmas while we were away visiting family in Canada. This was his second long stay with Kim and he was so excited when we pulled up to her house to drop him off! He had so much play time with Rainey and the others that Kim was sitting over the holidays! We are so glad ...

Stay-at-Home DOG Mom-Insured/Bonded

I have always had dogs (varied sizes) in my life from the time I was a child. I absolutely love dogs!

My husband, Ken, and I never had human kids so our dogs have always been OUR KIDS. Currently, we have a 2-year-old Chocolate Lab/Irish Setter named Rainey. Like all other dogs that we have had, she is extremely spoiled and lacks nothing, especially attention!

I will provide the same exact attention to your ...

What Kim would like to know about your dog

Due to the high demand for dog-sitting services during the holiday season, these dates will be charged my holiday rate: January 11-16, 2018, February 15-20, 2018, May 24-29, 2018, July 2-5, 2018, August 30, 2018 - September 7, 2018 and October 5-9, 2018. I may have to alter pricing prior to booking as the entire visit with dates around the above-mentioned will be billed at holiday rate:

***PLEASE BE SURE YOUR DOG IS UP TO DATE ON ALL PERTINENT VACCINES AND FLEA AND TICK TREATMENT***

As long as your dog is not aggressive and gets along with my dog, we are fine. The meet-and-greet should tell the story! My dog is usually very friendly with all dogs but there is that occasional dog or dogs that she just doesn't see eye-to-eye with. Again, the meet-and-greet is very important and will tell the story.

I like to do the meet-and-greet when my husband is home (especially if you are planning on boarding your dog) just so we can make sure that we all get along. This is VERY important!

Meet-and-greet times vary and are usually scheduled when I do not have any boarders. I do not like to crate a dog for a meet-and-greet as it can affect Rainey's attitude, as well as the visiting dog's attitude, in a negative way. A crated boarder barks and it interrupts all involved from my experience.

***Please note, for safety reasons, my husband does accompany me to most all meet-and-greets that are in clients' homes.***

I want your pet to feel comfortable with me, whether in my home or yours, and the best way for that to happen is to tell me about a normal day in the life of your pet, i.e., a walk at a certain time, potty break at a certain time, feeding time, play time, favorite toys, special treats, etc.

If you have any questions, please let me know. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile and consider my services. I look forward to taking care of your furkid soon!
