About Kristi

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Rate is for short term and holiday weeks. If interested in more than three nights please contact me for rates. Also contact for multiple dog discount.
Prefer dogs accustomed to children. Occasionally we will take a puppy.

I love having dogs in my life! Every dog is unique and my family and I love getting to know them. Every dog is also our favorite. When your dog stays with us, there are plenty of hands to throw toys, scratch ears and rub bellies. I know how lost my own dog feels when we go away and we do our best to make your pet not miss you.

When your dog stays with us, we go out for at least one long walk per day. Dogs that are higher energy will be walked more. I also spend time playing with the dogs in the backyard.

We have a large fenced in area. Nice backyard for larger dogs.

When contacting, please include a photo. For a variety of reasons, there are breeds I don't take.

I could not have been mores pleased with my Rex's stay at Kristi's. He came home a very happy dog and I was especially tickled to get texts with pictures of him playing while I was away. I will definitely be bringing him back!!
I felt great about leaving Nala with Kristi and her family for the weekend! She gave me updates and pics, and Nala came home worn out from all the exercise and play she got!
We were moving to the area and needed a place for our dogs during the transition. Kristi was very accommodating. She took excellent care of our dogs. We will use her again in the future for sure.
Took great care of my dog while he was there. She has a big back yard for the dogs to run and play. Treats your dog like a member of the family.
This was a LONG stay with Kristi! Meeka seemeed to enjoy her "vacation" almost as much as her family enjoyed our time in Europe. Kristi was mindful of the fact that pic texts would be expensive so she went to the trouble of sending me pics via email that I could access using wifi when I had that as an option. Meeka has stayed with Kristi in the past and she always has a good time playing in her large back yard. I also like that she doesnt have to sleep in her kennel at night. Kristi's daughter loves for Meeka to sleep with her. Kristi is also very flexible with the drop off and pick up times.
Our family never had to leave our pet before with someone we didn't know. Pepsi is part of our family and we were nervous. Once, we met with Kristi and her family, we felt comfortable about leaving Pepsi with her. Kristi was very professional and made Pepsi feel at home. Kristi also made us feel at ease by sending pictures of Pepsi while she was in her care. Pepsi looked very comfortable being at Kristi's home. Pepsi was well taken care of. We would definitely use Kristi again.
Our dogs were very happy staying with Kristi and her family. They were well taken care of during their stay. We plan on booking with Kristi again in the future.
Otto had a fantastic time - Kristi and her family are clearly all dog people and understand a big goofy boy's need to play fetch. Her backyard is like a fenced doggie wonderland. It's been a while since Otto returned from boarding this exhausted - that means he got plenty of play time. Thank you for taking such good care of my boy and letting him be part of your family! He'll be back. :)
Kristi is awesome! Tenley, my golden, loves staying with her and her family. She runs to the front door when I bring her there for doggie daycare. Kristi takes Tenley on walks and she plays well with the other dogs. I'm glad I found Kristi on DogVacay!
She is AMAZING! We've brought our little Leon to her twice now and her family treats him like a king! He never wants to come home!
Jasmine always has a great time!!!
Kristi was AWESOME!! She welcomed my 16 week old Siberian Husky pup right into her home and family routine. I felt very comfortable that MEEKA was being taken care of and enjoying her time away from home. Kristi's children seemed happy to have the puppy to play with. Her adult dog Leah was also very sweet with my puppy. I hope to be able to have Kristi care for MEEKA again in the future.
Thank you Kristi for a great job. I did do a review afterwards, but I guess I did it wrong. Just wanted to thank you for a job well done!
Jasmine had a great time!!
Emma always has the best time with Kristi and her family! Emma gets to run the backyard and look for squirrels, sleep on a human bed, and go on walks. When I drop her off, she heads right into the house wagging her tail.
Kristi did an awesome job with our dog. It looks like our dog had lot of fun. she was so tired playing with other dogs, when she came home she slept for a good 6 hours. We loved Kristi and her dog too. We will definitely live our dog with Krisiti when we take our next vacation.

Our puppy and older dog had a great stay. We were so thankful for being able to help us with such short notice.
Kristi always takes great care of Gracie. This visit was her longest stay anywhere away from home--two nights. There was also a great playmate for her, and she came home so tired she slept for 15 hours!
Kristi was very responsive, friendly and flexible. When we dropped off Mikko, she was sincerely interested in learning about Mikko's particular needs and asked several questions. She took great care of our 5-yr-old schnoodle and sent pictures both days we were away. We will definitely reserve with Kristi again. Thank you so much!
Wonderful as always - Kristi had to administer some eye medications and a daily pill, and there were no problems. Emma loves Kristi's backyard and being a part of their family.
As always Kristi took great care of our dog. So nice to have a go-to place for her that we can trust.
It was Gracie's 3rd visit to Kristi's house. When we were about 3 blocks away she started going crazy in the car! She knew where we were going and she was so excited! She burst out of the car and ran straight to Kristi's door--couldn't wait to get inside and run to that huge back yard. Kristi even got my "retriever" to actually bring the ball back to her 3 times!
Once again Kristi and her family provided a wonderful experience for Gracie and a worry-free time for us. Her flexibility and availability is helping us through a difficult season of doctor appointments. One thing I especially appreciate is Kristi's understanding of the amount of exercise a 3 1/2 year old Black Lab needs. She makes sure Gracie gets the exercise she needs and she is always good and tired out when we pick her up. Lia is such a sweet dog too. A good companion for visiting dogs.
Kristi and family do a fabulous job! Our dogs apparently had enough attention because they sure did not seek any attention from us when they got home! They were all out pooped! Plenty of play time outside is key for our dogs! We could not ask for more. Thanks Kristi and family!
Kristi was wonderful. I could tell Gracie was happy when I picked her up, and she was good and tired out for the long ride home from playing ball. We needed a place for Gracie in a pinch and Kristi came through on short notice. She sent a picture to let us know Gracie was doing well. Completely satisfied and happy to have found a great place to take our dog! We have already booked her next stay.
Kristi hosts our dog for doggie day on a weekly basis. She is adaptable to our schedule and Biscuit loves going to see her and Lia. I highly recommend Kristi for pet care!
She was very accommodating to our and our dog's needs. Friendly yard and family, besides.
This was the second time we had Kristi and her family watch our golden retriever, Lucy. For Lucy, being a people dog, Kristi has the perfect environment - a welcoming home with kids of various ages and one or two other dogs. The dogs get along well and there's a large backyard that they can use to run around or just relax.
We highly recommend Kristi and she will always be our first option anytime we need a sitter.
Kristi did a great job with our dogs. She sent pictures to keep us updated and they came back tired and happy!
Great experience, the big fenced in yard is just what we needed.
Emma had a wonderful time again - Kristi's family all gave her lots of love and she clearly loves it there. Kristi was very flexible with the drop off and pick up times as well, even when pick up had to change last minute. We'll be back!
Jasmine had a great time playing with their dog & their availability for drop off & pick up was great!
Our dog had been to Kristi's for daycare, but this was our first (& second) time boarding him there. She was extremely flexible about dates, as we weren't sure when I'd go into labor! We ended up boarding him twice, due to one false start at the hospital. It's good to know our high-energy dog has a great place to go.
Jasper stayed with Kristi and Tim again last weekend and he had a great time! He loves Lia (the resident dog) and the kids, and was tired and happy when he got home from all the time he spent playing. Kristi sent us photo updates every night and it was so fun to see Jasper enjoying his vacation as much as we enjoyed ours.
Emma had a great time - she played with the owners' dog Lia, caught mice in the backyard, got loved up by the family members. I received many fun photos while away and it was great to know Emma was in such good hands. Kristi and Tim's house and yard are very dog-friendly, lots of space for a big dog. Their own dog Lia is very gentle and sweet. I would be happy to have Emma stay there again.
Thank you Kristi and Tim for caring for Maximus and our new pack member Triigger. We realize that Trigger probably was a handful of fur. Enjoyed sharing ideas with you regarding training him to be a better companion. We will certainly put those to good use. Love the photos you shared with us, as they let us know that all was well while we were gone from our Furkids. If we need a sitter in the future will be sure to call ya again.
We needed a place to send our energetic dog on occasion for doggie daycare. He came home exhausted even though it was a rainy day -- Kristi must've been busy wiping muddy paws! Flexible friendly people -- highly recommend.
Jasper loved spending the weekend with Kristi and Tim! He didn't want to stop playing with Kristi's dog, and then he fell asleep as soon as he got in the car. Kristi texted us pictures and updates throughout the weekend, which was wonderful. It was so nice to know he was in a home with people and other dogs instead of a cold, impersonal kennel.
Kristi & Tim came to my rescue when I needed to leave town and my usual sitter fell through. They are really great people and adore dogs. They were in constant communication with me while my Charlie was on his vacay, I got photos everyday which really put me at ease knowing he was in such great hands. Charlie will definitely be staying with them again!
