Kristen is the absolute best dog sitter around! She is incredibly trust worthy, kind, and caring.

You will have the best and most experienced pet sitter EVER! Kristen has been involved with animal rescue for most of her adult life. She is compassionate and knows how to meet dogs at their level. Kristen always uses positive reinforcement for training and will help keep your pet comfortable while they are in a new environment. If you want the best.....take your dog to Kristen!!!

About Kristen's Home

When Kristen watches your pet

The yard is fenced in (6 feet all around) and the dogs love to run and play. In the summer, basking in the sun is a favorite pastime. I enjoy taking my dogs on little adventures to local parks and the lake for long walks.
