Kristen is wonderful! Our dog Flynn has separation anxiety when he's boarded and we were tired of picking up a miserable dog from the kennel so we turned to Rover.com. Kristen came over for a meet and greet and Flynn warmed up to her immediately. We booked Kristen that day and we went away for a weekend knowing that our dog and home were in great hands. Kristen sent lots of great pictures and ...

Perfect for Arlo. Nice backyard for him and his new dog friends to run around in.

Excellent Professional Pet Care!

Hello! My name is Kristen and I have worked at a couple kennels/pet resorts here in the Louisville area in the past and I now enjoy caring for them in their own home where they are most comfortable. You can rest assured your pet will be in good hands. Your pet will be cared for by being fed at its regular feeding times, taken for walks if desired, played with by doing it's favorite ...

What Kristen would like to know about your dog

I don't discriminate by breed. However I would like to know if they can be aggressive towards humans or other dogs, if they have any medical conditions I need to be aware of such as food allergys or a history of seizures, and if they struggle with separation anxiety. I don't deny any dogs based on the answers to these questions, I just need to know so I can give them the best care possible.

When Kristen watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I live in a neighborhood. I walk them down to the pond in the front of the neighborhood and back.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
I usually let them sleep in the bedroom with me unless otherwise specified by the owner.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I spend the magority of my time with the dogs I'm sitting but I do have to leave them alone sometimes when I go to work and on Sunday mornings when I go to church.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I work Monday through Friday from 9am to 3pm and Sunday's from 4pm to 10pm. That's about 6 hours a day. My job is very flexible with me and if I need to leave for 30 minutes or so during a shift or if I need to leave early or come in late, they will allow me (except on Sunday's because I'm the only staff there and can't leave). It's a Christ centered rehab for people with life controlling problems like drug or alcohol addiction. Other than work, I would spend most of my time at your home as if it was my home and my pet. I do leave from time to time to run errands or go to appointments, meetings, dinner, normal day to day activities. It really depends on the level of care and the amount of time you desire I spend at your home. I try and accommodate and mimic your pets normal routine.

Extra house-sitting services
Sure, I'm always will to be of as much help as possible. However, any labor intensive tasks may cost an extra fee depending on the extent and duration of the chore. Watering a few plants and taking in the mail is considered a norm of the job and would not cost any extra money.
