Kristen is wonderful! Both our dogs started to sing as soon as pulled up in front of her house, and they ran inside - they couldn't wait to go in and play with the other dogs.

Kristen and her family are great! My only problem is I'm not sure Mali wants to come after a visit! Kristen takes great care to exercise and play with Mali while she's there, she treats her like her own and Mali is thoroughly worn out when she comes home. It gives me such peace of mind to know she is well cared for when I take long trips and even for just a day of ...

Love, love, love Kristen and her family! When we can't take our dog with us, it's a great comfort to know she's hanging with a great family!

Pooch Pad Pet: home away from home

We are a family with dogs, different dogs all year. We treat your dogs as one of our family. We live in a small neighborhood off gold-hill road, a dog-friendly walk-able community. I'm a SAHM who's youngest is in preschool. My family and I love having furry friends in our lives. We provide basic obedience reinforcement and tailor activities to your dogs' familiar routines. I find a well-exercised dog is content and happy. We walk ...

What Kristen would like to know about your dog

We enjoy most breeds, Large and small. Our main requirements are that your pup is well socialized with other dogs, and has experience with children. We are not able to take pups that need to be kept completely separate from other dogs.

When Kristen watches your pet

Our community has sidewalks on every street. We walk the neighborhood including two and from school. Sometimes we walk up to Starbucks,TCBY, or Beef O'Brady's. These establishments all have outside seating so your dog can be part of our outing. We also have wooded hiking trails within a 5 minute walk from our backdoor that we enjoy using throughout the year but especially when sunny stretches are too hot to walk in.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
We do our best to have your dogs sleep at our home where they are used to sleeping at your home. The one exception is our bed:) Dogs can sleep on their pillow or cushion in our room or our sons room if that's what they are used to. Dogs that are used to a crate at night can be crated in whatever location is most like home.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I'm a stay at home mom, so I am home a lot. I walk the dogs to school in the morning with my kids, and again at afternoon pick up. We sometimes do an evening walk. During the day I do run errands but am typically not gone more than a 2 hour stretch. I often have dogs resting at my feet in my home office, or around my bed while I fold laundry. When weather is nice I will sit outside on the patio and throw the ball or watch a lively group run and play. I really enjoy watching dogs play in a pack - doing so helps me have a better understanding of each as an individual as well as their roll in a pack and how that roll changes as the pack members rotate.
