About Kimberly

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a published Children's Author, and a Dog Mom of my 2 fur babies, so I make my own hours and work from home. Your pup will have 24 hour supervision. My schedule allows me to easily take my fur babies for walks, to the local parks, and to their Vet appointments. My husband, Dan, is home 3 days a week so he's able to spend lots of fun time with us, too. We live in a safe, secure Townhouse complex and there is lots of open, grassy space for your pup to enjoy fun, on-leash walks and/or play. There are also lots of paved paths should your pup prefer a more structured walk. There are other dogs and plenty of kids in our neighborhood so if your guy or gal likes to be social, I know the areas to go. Should he/she prefer a quieter time, I know those areas as well. No worries.

Geddy (our almost 8-year-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel) loves to spend most of his day napping, preferably in sunny spots. He does enjoy ear, cheek, and back rubs, too. I can get him to play...IF I bring out the right toy, or the mood strikes. He's a sweetheart, and would love to show you his good-natured personality, along with lots of sloppy kisses with you once you meet him! He is happy to share his favorite treats-carrots, peanut butter, and Mommy's homemade cookies-as long as his new friends are allowed to partake. Breezy (our almost 3-year-old Yorkie) is our little Princess, who loves baths, brushing, and modeling her vast wardrobe. She's full of spunk and keeps us on our toes! We adopted her about a year ago, and she's brought so much love and joy to us and our home that it's as if she was with us her whole life! She has tons of toys, knows them by name, and would love to have a new friend (or 2 or 3) to play with!. She is a cuddle bug, and will keep your lap warm once you take a seat and start stroking her soft coat.

We are very affectionate and express our love towards our pups and Guests through verbal praise, hugs, petting, kisses and healthy homemade treats (only if OK by you). I treat my Guests as if they were my own! I adhere to a strict routine with my fur kids, as it promotes a sense of security when they know what to expect and when. I add tons of praise, love, and fun to every part of our days together. When your pups are here, their routines will be followed to a "T." We choose to take only up to 2 dogs in our home at a time to assure that they will receive the most personal care and attention possible. I have Certifications in Dog Behavior/Training, Dog Psychology, and Pet First Aid/CPR. I have recently become Certified in Dog Reiki. I have lots of experience in dealing with separation anxiety with positive results. I also provide Doggy Day Care if you'd like your boy or girl to spend an afternoon, do a practice run before YOUR vacay, or just hang out for a few hours with us having all kinds of fun!

I would preferably board and provide daycare to the smaller and medium size dogs up to 30 pounds. Your pup(s) can expect to enjoy as many short walks a day as he/she so desires. In addition to affection and healthy snacks, playtime is huge in this house. So are photos and videos! I always have my camera close at hand in order to capture moments. To me, any moment of our dog's lives is special. Should your little guy/girl be more on the mellow, quiet, or shy side, rest assured that he/she will be treated with extra extra special attention; and there is ample room in our home for him/her to have private time with me.

Kim is a very caring dog mom. She seems to have a special intuition on how to interact with any dog she meets. She goes above and beyond to make sure your fur babies feel at home in her home. I highly recommend her!
Oct 2016
Kim is truly caring and loving when it comes to all animals, and she goes out of her way to make sure her guest dogs get every bit of love she has as if they were her own. I have seen her go out of her way to make sure a guest dog is happy and healthy while in her care, and you can be sure she will keep you informed with stories and photos so that you can rest assured while separated from your furry loved one.

Our pups had another wonderful stay at Kim's. She's always so great with our fur babies, we don't have to worry when we go out of town. They are always played with and well cared for staying with here. Wouldn't take them anywhere else!
