We have found a home away from home for Buster. Kim sent pictures and videos of Buster having fun daily. He had such a good time with Rainey, their chocolate lab, I was afraid Buster may not want to come home ?. Kim and her husband, Ken, went above and beyond. I wish I had found them long ago.

I admit I was a little nervous to leave our fur-babies with people I really didn't know. But now I will recommend Kim and to all our friends!! She and her husband are fantastic! Bandit & Diva were welcome with love, hugs & kisses, to say they were spoiled is an understatement! Thank you both so much!!

Kim and Ken were very attentive to my spoiled terriers. She took lots of pictures and gave me frequent updates. My dogs enjoyed their stay and did not come home in bad moods. I know they enjoyed playing with Rainey, too. I have already booked their next stay.

Thanks Dawn! I can't wait to sit them again. They were a delight!

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


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 and consider my services.
