My pup Yoyo really had a fun time at Kristene’s place! She came home tired and happy everyday, and she definitely enjoys the pool (had more than one swim, but Kristene really made sure she came home dry)! My family is having a trip to LA and didn’t want Yoyo to stay in the room alone for a long time！ Kristene responded to my request quickly and was able to take Yoyo in ...
My puppy loves going to Kristine’s. She truly understands dogs and I know my dog is safe with her. It is such a relief to be able to drop off your pup worry free.
Arleda loved Kristene's and so did we! Kristene was very thoughtful, thorough, and informative. She called us before completing the booking to talk about our needs and hers, what to expect, how she does things, etc. Then the next morning, we brought Arleda over and stayed at Kristene's to do a very successful meet and greet with the other dogs she cares for. Arleda is an adopted Husky we've had for about 2 weeks now ...
I NEVER MET A DOG I DIDN'T LIKE!
NOTE BEFORE PROCEEDING: So as not to waste anyone's time, please be aware that I DO NOT ACCEPT SMALL DOGS (under 30 pounds), nor dogs that will drop like a cannonball to the bottom of my unfenced pool (French Bulldogs cannot swim!). That is not meant to be mean; it's meant to keep everyone SAFE! YOUR DOG will not be the exception to that rule.
Now, on to the happy stuff:
I was two years ...
What Kristene would like to know about your dog
If possible, I'd love to have your dog visit us for a few hours prior to actually coming here for boarding. I feel it's important for him to not feel abandoned by being left somewhere unfamiliar. I'm very affectionate with animals, but if yours is the shy type, or prefers to be left alone for a while, I'll sense that and let him come to me, as opposed to me "forcing" myself on him. I don't really care which breed your pal is, but I really love big dogs. NOTE: As I've mentioned, I host several "regulars" - and they all know and love each other. "Nervous" pet owners, who do not truly understand canine behavior, and who simply do not listen to my suggestions during the meet & greet, rarely work out over here (meaning no bookings result from those meetings). They relay their nervousness to their poor dogs and nobody wins. Also, good old common sense will tell you that YOUR DOG WILL NEVER, EVER BE THE ONLY CANINE OVER HERE (yes - a few people have actually requested that after reading all of this!).
