Spayed and Neutered Dogs
No Females in Heat
Pluto seemed to have a great time with Kristie! I loved seeing the photos she sent and appreciated her letting me know how he was getting along during his stay. Will not hesitate to book with Kristie again!
Kristie was great with Hudson and was an absolute trooper given that I accidentally miss entered my address. She found us anyways and took my dog on a full walk despite the delays. When I came home my dog was tired and happy. Thanks Kristie!!
My dog Popeye stayed at Kristie’s for 4 days. During the meet and greet, Kristie asked questions to make sure my dog would be comfortable to play with another puppy during his stay. Kristie let me know how Popeye was doing and sent me photos on a daily basis. That was nice as I did not have to worry how he was doing. And Kristie was very understanding when Popeye had an accident. I ...
Veterinary Animal Care Experience
I have professional experience working with and caring for dogs of all breeds, sizes, and temperaments, as I worked at a veterinary hospital for a few years doing animal care and grooming. Through all my interactions with the animals in both the boarding and grooming environments—having seen and dealt with many types of situations—I have valuable experience and insight that make me keenly aware, sensitive, and knowledgeable in this field. In addition to ...
What Kristie would like to know about your dog
I would like to know anything you could tell me about your dog's personality, temperament, likes/dislikes, etc. before sitting him or her. Usual bathroom schedule? Feeding routine? Friendly with strangers/children? Friendly with other dogs? Illnesses/medical needs? Toy/food aggression? Knowing any and all details in advance will help ensure that I can keep your dog safe and comfortable.
* BREEDS/SIZES: I am open to most breeds and sizes for most of my services. I can accept large and extra large dogs as long as they are calm and friendly. Rates will be higher for Large/XL dogs.
* ACCESSIBILITY: I live in a 3-story townhouse so there are lots of stairs in my home. For the dogs' safety, there are gates to block off each level so that the dogs do not run up and down all the time and so that they do not run off to another part of the house out of my sight. If you have an older dog or a dog with hip/joint problems who may have trouble with the stairs (and slippery hardwood floors), my house may not be a good match for you. I can and will carry smaller dogs up and down, but I will not be able to do this for large dogs.
* Please also note that for day care and boarding, I only accept dogs who are socialized and friendly with other dogs since I do host multiple dogs at a time. I also do not board young puppies who are not fully potty trained.
