About Me

We live in a ground level garden apartment in a nice quiet neighborhood between the craziness of Fisherman's Wharf and North Beach. Our apartment is cozy but with a secure, fenced backyard, there is plenty of room for running and playing. Our house is 100% dog friendly and safe.

I am also a certified animal handler and have over 12 years of pet (dog and cat) rescue and pet owning experience.

I have a reliable car, a valid CA driver's license in case of any emergencies and also for fun trips to Chrissy Field and the beach!

We own an art gallery down the street so we will be available 24/7 with lots of socialization, walks, and attention. Your dog needs to be friendly, socialized, and relatively well trained. Unfortunately, if your dog is a overly protective or highly vocal, we cannot care for them due to the public nature of our business.

Our care is very specialized and our focus is on dogs who are used to being 'one of the family' and benefits animals who are used to going everywhere with their humans.

Below are some reviews of Kim L from real dog owners who have used their services on!

Average Rating:
  • We never have to worry, when Oggie stays with Kim. Thanks again! See you soon!!

  • Once again a wonderful experience! When Oggie stays with Kim, we never have to worry about him. Kim will send us updates and photos, which makes it a bit easier not being with our dog, and we get confirmation on how things are going. I truly appreciate her being so devoted to making Oggie's stay such a great experience each time, and for giving us the peace of mind knowing that our Oggie is in loving and capable hands.

  • Thanks again - Puppy and people are very happy! It's nice to travel, when you know that your dog is in such good hands. Looking forward to another Vacay soon!

  • As each time before, we had an excellent experience with Kim once again. We can leave our dog in her care with absolute confidence! Kim sent us updates and photos, and we felt comfortable traveling, knowing that all is well with our four-legged "baby" and that he gets lots of love and great care while we're away.

  • Our senior puppy needed a place to stay for a whole week this time, and since we had had such a great experience with Kim L. in June, we didn't think twice about asking if she could have Oggie over for such a long time. She was able to do it, Oggie loved going back, and we felt 100% comfortable vacationing, knowing that our puppy is in good hands. Kim L. sent us updates and photos of Oggie, and clearly took wonderful care of him! We'll definitely turn to Kim L. again in the fiuture, when we need a place for Oggie.

  • Kim was great to help out on short notice. Chloe had a fun time playing with Dozier, it wore her out. Would use Kim again in a heartbeat next time we are in San Francisco.

  • My dog, Ollie loves Kim's dog Dozer and they are BFFs! It is one big playtime for two large and equally matched (energy and temperament) pooches. I couldn't be happier! Thanks Kim, Kate

  • Our senior citizen Oggie stayed with Kim L. for two nights, and both puppy and "parents" are very happy! We arranged a meet & greet a few days prior, got to see each other and make sure the dogs get along, which they did. Even more so when we went to pick Oggie up after the stay: I think he just as happily would have stayed! Kim L. is very easy to reach, stay in touch with, and will love your dog as if it were her own. Our dog needed a more relaxed environment, and Kim L. was happy to arrange a daily routine where Oggie could hang out with the people, but not stress about anything: not be left out of the pack or the activities, but not be forced to deal with too much excitement either. Couldn't have been better.
