When Penny stays with Kristen it's like she's staying with a family member. We've been using her for a couple years now with no complaints. She's been there for our family through vacation trips, baby deliveries and last minute emergencies. I truly can leave town with the peace of mind that my Penny is in good hands and getting the love and affection I know she needs. Can't thank her enough ♥️

Kristen is great. Our dog stayed for the first time and enjoyed playing and running around with the other dogs in the yard. Kristen sent photos throughout the day and it was fun to see our dog having such a good time. I’m planning on using Kristin’s services on a regular basis.

Kristen and her family are warm and inviting. My pup enjoyed having space to play in her fenced yard. He also enjoyed the company of the other dogs she keeps daily. He returned home tired by happy. I will likely use Kristen's services again in the future.

Puppy Paradise...Everyday is zen!

As a pet owner myself, there is nothing more stressful then having to find overnight pet care for your family dog. Ultimately, you want your pet to be in a safe, happy and loving environment. When you're away on business or pleasure, you don't want to worry about your pet and their well being. Sit back and be reassured, that I will take great care of your family member. Keep in mind, I also offer ...

What Kristen would like to know about your dog

Before boarding your dog, I would like to know your dogs eating habits (frequency and whether extra treats are allowed), his/her energy level, favorite toys and whether he/she is taking any medications or has any boo boo's that need tending.

How is your dog with other dogs? How are they with children? Does your dog enjoy the dog park?

How would they enjoy being in a new home with several other dogs and have you had dogs come to your home to play? How did they react? Their favorite place to sleep and any other pertinent information. I work from home but there are times when I need to run out. Can your dog be left alone or do they need to be crated?

When Kristen watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I am located in the West Mt Airy area of the city. The area is very green. Also, I am a short walk away from valley green and carpenters woods. I try to let my guest out in the yard, for multiple potty breaks. I also take them on 2-3 walks a day.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
I will supply a dog bed or you can bring your pets favorite bedding, whichever you choose. I do have crates available for those that prefer to crate their pets, as needed. Every dog has a place that they prefer to sleep. Let me know what your pet prefers and I'll do my best to accommodate. You may want to send one of your unwashed shirts to help them settle into their new environment.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I work from home and I would be spending tons of time with your family member. I really enjoy walking and if your dog loves walks, we'll be a perfect match. I also have a large fenced in yard and I love watching the dogs play catch, roll around in the grass or lounge in the sun.
