Today was Luna's first experience of full day doggy daycare ever and I was a nervous WRECK! Kristen sent me updates throughout the day which I appreciated more than she'll ever know. Luna came home tired but also acted like she didn't want to leave! We will definitely be booking with her again!

Thank you for your review, Tess! Luna had fun and I'm looking forward to having her again!

Kristen was incredible at communicating and sent multiple pictures daily. She is always warm and friendly and professional. She seemed to go above and beyond to give Everest a fun and comfortable stay. We will definitely use her again!!

I love fluffy faces!

I have owned dogs and cats for over 15 years and have worked at veterinary hospitals and clinics (6 years at an emergency animal hospital, 2 years at a day practice clinic, 2 years at a boarding kennel/daycare). I've also done volunteer work for the Oregon Humane Society and Pawsitively Pit Bull. I am able to read dog body language and pick up on cues/signals of anxiety, nervousness, and fear; this is crucial ...

When Kirsten watches your pet

Here's where we'll take walks, if needed:
We live in a nice, quiet Tigard neighborhood. We are close to Fanno Creek Trail, as well. We have a good sized backyard for play, too!

Your dog's sleeping arrangement:
We have several dog blankets, rugs, and beds. Depending on your dog's curiosity level, they may need to snooze overnight in a kennel, so they are not wandering or chasing the cats.

Time I'll spend with your dog:
Half to full days. I do have kids, so I need to leave the house for school drop off and pick up in the mornings, in addition to play dates and appointments, etc. Again, depending on your dog's curiosity level, they may need to be kenneled when we leave.
