If you choose to stay with me, your pup will be treated like a member of the family. Your dog will enjoy free run of my sunny, one-bedroom apartment and all the care and attention I give my own dog, Walle, a sweet, albeit lazy, 35 lbs lab-beagle mix.

Rooney had another great stay with Kim! Kim was super responsive and we felt confident leaving Rooney in her hands. Thanks!
Lilly had a blast.
Kim was a great host, and I appreciated the regular photo updates she sent.
Kim was awesome, as always. Sent me some some super cute pics of my dog hanging out at her place. Made sure he was well-fed and nice and cozy. And when I couldn't make it back in time because of bad weather she had no problem taking care of my dog for an extra night. Kim is just a great dog sitter!
Kim was great with our pup again! She took him to the park a lot and he seemed to be having a wonderful time. Kim was also trying new tricks to get him to eat well since he is a picky eater, especially away from home. We will highly recommend her!
Having our dog, Pi, stay with Kim turned out to be a positive first-time experience using DogVacay. We were nervous parents at first having to leave him for 9 days, but Kim definitely put us at ease by sending daily pictures, updates, videos, and plenty of visits to parks. She was flexible, professional, understanding, and someone we will definitely use in the future.
Kim was awesome! She sent great updates every day about our pup with photos and details about how he was doing, which made us smile every day while we were away on our vacation, since he's like our baby. She also did us the huge favor of picking him up from our wedding venue, which made our lives so much easier!! (Einstein, our pup, was our ring-bearer, and he would not have enjoyed the reception part of the celebration day) Thanks so much again, Kim! We really appreciated your help and care. -Kayla, Patrick, and Einstein
I continue to use Kim for daycare several times a week. When I had to travel out of town for work for 7 days on short notice, Kim was able to take care of Pepper overnight. I had great peace of mind while I was gone knowing he was in her care. She sent me photos daily and was able to accommodate an irregular pickup time. It really makes a difference knowing that I have someone so reliable to take care of Pepper for extended periods when needed.
We recently moved to NYC and were nervous about finding the right sitter for our pup. Kim was quick to respond and scheduled a meet-n-greet almost immediately since we were rushed for a last minute trip. She asked a lot of questions to make sure she really understood our dog, which helped me enjoy our trip knowing she would take good care of Sparky. Not only did she send daily photos, she gave details of how he was adjusting to being in a new place. She also took special care to make sure he ate his dinner since he tends to not eat as well when he is in a new situation. Kim is fantastic and we will definitely use her again!!!
Lawrence had a fantastic time staying with Kim for the two weeks. We received regular updates (with photos and videos) of his walks and playtime at the park and with Kim's sweet pup, Walle.

Once we got him home, he was absolutely worn out (in a great way!) from how much fun he had. We'd definitely send Lawrence to camp with Kim again.
Kim was a fabulout Dogvacay host. Louie can be alittle nervous, especially around other new dogs, and Kim and her dog made him feel right at home. We received an email with photos each day and Louie always was his happy little self in the photos. He even had a visitor-another dog--with whom he had fun. By the end of the 5 days, Louie was following Kim around her apartment! I would definitely use Kim again to watch Louie!
I have been using Kim for day care several times a week for the last few months. She takes very good care of him, is very dependable, timely, and sends me updates daily. I highly recommend her services and will continue to use her.
Kim was amazing taking care of my dog Nina, she was caring, very professional and communicative every day. Loved the pictures and videos of Nina she sent me.
I came back home and Nina was happy and herself.
I will definitely recommend Kim to anyone.
Great experience with Kim as usual!
Our pup Rooney stayed with Kim for 15 days and had a great time! We could tell that she enjoyed her little vacation and was well taken care of -- she even looked back wistfully when we took her home! Kim was easy to communicate with and very responsive. Her updates made us feel confident that we were leaving Rooney in great hands, and even when minor issues came up (stomach issue, being a rambunctious puppy), Kim was always calm and pre-emptively soothed any concerns we may have had. We enthusiastically recommend Kim and Rooney will likely be back for more vacays in the future!
This was McClane's second visit with Kim - this time for over a week. Kim sent great detailed updates about all the fun McClane was having on her vacation. She was also very accommodating with pick-up and drop-off, both time and location. McClane can't wait to visit Kim again!
Kim was available at short notice and was great. She sent me daily updates and pictures of my dog while I was several thousand miles away from her. I was able to stop worrying about my dog and felt relieved while she was with Kim.
Kim took good care of my dog Pepper and I felt comfortable leaving him with her. She accommodated my schedule and was very conscientious.
Kim was an excellent doggie host! She was very thorough in getting to know Julius pre-Vacay, which made me feel very comfortable about leaving Julius in her capable hands. While I was away, Kim sent me updates every single day. Kim takes her dogs on fun excursions to the local park, which I thought was a really nice treat for Julius. When I got back, Julius seemed really relaxed. Overall, Kim is a fun yet responsible host with a genuinely high level of care and compassion for dogs, making her a great choice for someone to take care of your baby-dog for you while you're away.
Kim was great! We met her, her husband and Walle in the park before our booking and immediately felt comfortable. Nightly updates were detailed and filled with pictures. We will definitely trust Kim with our pup again.
Kim is a very conscientious and thorough doggie caretaker. She took Foxy to the park frequently and sent lots of pics and update e-mails while I was away. She is a terrific host.
Kim and her husband were very helpful in dog sitting for me during my trip out of town. Since this was my first time leaving my dog with someone whom she was unfamiliar with as well as in a different environment, I did have some worry that my dog would have a hard time settling in and adjusting. However Kim provided me with daily photos and updates on my dog, who did seem to settle in after the first night. Kim was also very helpful in providing me with some beneficial feedback and suggestions for my dog. I highly recommend her and would definitely use her again!!!!!
I've left Apple with Kim twice now, both for fairly long stays, and I can't recommend her more highly! She sent pictures and updates pretty much everyday which I really appreciated. But most importantly, Apple was so calm when I got her. Usually after I've left her with someone else, she's kind of anxious for a day or two after I get back. But this time she was just her normal happy calm self. The first time I picked her up I swear it seemed like she didn't even want to leave!
Kim took care of my dog, Bailey, for two weeks over the holidays, and she was great. I think being away from me is always a bit anxiety-provoking for Bailey, but Kim and her husband and their dog Walle took great care of him. Kim sent updates and gorgeous photos each day (much better than the pics I take!) of Bailey out cavorting on his walks, which included one frolicking snow day. I could tell that Kim was really conscientious, and that she and her husband love and understand dogs. I'll definitely leave Bailey with her again. Thanks, Kim!
This was our second time using Kim. Since the dogs have met before, we didn't do another meet and greet. She was great! Mochi got lots of walks and belly rubs! We will definitely use her in the future!
Kim was amazing! She helped us out on a last minute reservation, with only about 3 days' notice. We had a meet and greet and she showed us her apartment and we met her adorable doggie, Wallie! Our dog was with her for a week and we got emails with a few pictures every evening.
Our experience with Kim was flawless. It was the first time we left Akimi with a "stranger" because she is a bit anxious towards new dogs. That said, we liked the idea of her socializing with other dogs so we had a little meetup with Kim and her dog Walle just to see if the pups are compatible. After checking each other out for a minute they hit it off right away!

After Akimi's stay with Kim and Walle, she seemed to have shed some of her anxiety towards dogs- a definite plus!

Kim was very accommodating with the drop-off and pick-up time. We loved the photo updates every day. Akimi even took a day trip to Central Park!
This was my first time in well over a year leaving my dog with someone who was not immediate family. On top of that, I needed to find someone on short notice as my fiance was taking me on a last minute vacation. Kim responded to my inquiries very promptly and when I was away, she sent me updates each day along with pictures of my pup looking very happy. I would definitely use her services again!
Kim was available at short notice which was very important for me (a spontaneous vacationer!). She sent extremely detailed updates with photos and was very communicative while we were away. She was also affectionate with my dogs and did whatever possible to make them feel at home. Her own dog is super mellow and I felt my "boys" were more than happy to hang with their new friend. I would definitely use Kim again.
Kim was great! She was close by so very convenient. She took great pictures of my dog and sent them to me. She took my dog to a few new places for her to explore. She was good with her medical care. Highly recommended.
Once again Kim was a FANTASTIC host for Watson. She was available last minute and was extrememly flexible. She takes the best pictures and is great about keeping me updated. I am confident leaving Watson with her and highly recommend Kim!
I looked into dogvacay.com after my dog Hugo had a bad boarding experience. Kim F did a great job looking after Hugo. She sent several pictures of them out and about during his stay, and since I was getting home on a late flight, she even dropped him off at my apartment a few hours before so he was there when I got home. He seemed happy and relaxed when I got back - just what I was hoping for! Kim F was flexible, responsive, easy-going, and gave Hugo a great home for the weekend. We're very grateful :)
Kim was absolutely a doll and She was super with my Peppie.
Kim was very attentive to Peppie and She is very professional and comes with a wealth of Pet training and knowledge.
Kim understands what it means to be a responsible pet owner.
I highly recommend Kim!!!
I felt comfortable with her on the first meet and great with Peppie.
Such a big help and relief to find a place that Peppie can call her second home away from home.
I travel a lot and knowing that my my four legged best friend is in good hands, gives me a great sense of relief.

Ms.Kim is wonderful I would recommend to everyone. Yes I would use Kim service again.
Thanks to Kim and her husband for taking care of our Duke while we went on vacation. Kim was great at sending daily text messages and photos of Duke's adventures. It really made us feel at ease that he was having a great time and was in good hands. She really took time to keep Duke occupied while we were gone, like taking him to the park and on outings around Brooklyn. I definitely recommend her for dog sitting!
Kim F was wonderful to work with. She worked with me on a last minute reservation and was very flexible in drop off/pick up times. Watson (my dog) really enjoyed his stay and she sent me pictures everyday of the activites that they did together. I highly recommend her!
Kim was awesome, super flexible with my changing schedule and sent me loads of picture updates. Baxter usually has anxiety from being away but when I got home he was all wags. Very satisfied and I'm sure Bax can't wait for me to go away again (I suspect Kim even walked him more than I do!!) :)
Kim was an excellent host for Lilly Bell. I really appreciated the regular walks, and the daily photo updates. Lilly seems to have really enjoyed her stay and appreciated the companionship of Kim's dog, Walle. And Kim was flexible in handling some last-minute changes in our plans. All-in-all, a top-notch experience!
