KIm is absolutely the best sitter we have ever had. Lucy had a fabulous stay with her over the July 4th.
Kim was in contact with us everyday. She treated Lucy as her own.
We plan to always have Kim take Lucy when we are on vacation

Oscar loves going to Kim and Rainey's. He was just there on his Birthday and Kim helped him celebrate with a party for him and his buddies that were staying there. Kim always goes above and beyond!!

Kim is the best. My puppies love her! She is extremely reliable and provides peace of mind for us. We don'have no worries when we are away. She is the only person we will trust with our babies.

Stay-at-Home DOG Mom-Insured/Bonded

I have always had dogs (varied sizes) in my life from the time I was a child. My husband, Ken, and I never had human kids so our dogs have always been OUR KIDS. Currently, we have a 3-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 furkid as I do ...

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

As long as your furkid is not aggressive and gets along with Rainey, my furkid, we are fine. The meet-and-greet should tell the story! Rainey 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 meeting you and taking care of your furkid soon!
