About Kristin

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello fellow pup lovers!
My name is Kristin, I'm 33 years old. I have been working with animals profesionaly for about 5 years. I have 4 years of experience working in a boarding facility. I was in charge of everything from group play and walking, to feeding and medicating. I have experience with all sizes, ages and temperaments. I'm especially comfortable with older dogs who need extra TLC and medication, and also with dogs who might need a little more patience. I've worked with anywhere from super high energy police dogs to a special 3 legged friend in a wheel chair. Temperament evaluations were a daily responsibility, so I know what to look for when assessing your pooches needs.
I am new to this site, but I do have about a year doing professional pet sitting. I loved working in the kennel and hosting large play groups, but I wanted to do something that would allow me to give the dogs a better experience while their family is away, and be able to bond with them more closely and give more attention. I love being able to take them hiking and swimming, so expect that to be your buds experience with me. However I do like to just take lazy strolls on the trails behind my house for the pooches with a bit more life experience :) Expect lots of fun pictures, videos and updates!
My extra services are negotiable, such as baths and pick up/drop off.
I have a 9 year old black lab. He is definitely a valued business partner! He gets along with all types and sizes of dogs, and is super easy going and layed back. He helps me entertain and can wrestle or play tug of war for hours. He has a tendency to take on the energy level of our current guest.
I feel so blessed being able to get up every morning and do something I genuinely enjoy, and I definitely feel blessed that you took the time to check out my profile! Hope to hear from you and your four legged family member soon. Animals make the world a better place for us, let me help make the world a better place for your dogs!

Thanks Kristin for doing a great job taking care of Sophie!
Long overdue. Mila (my energetic 1.5yr old) spent a nice long weekend with Kristin and Alvin during Halloween weekend. I actually contacted her at another time but our scheduling didn't work out but with her great reviews I wanted to try again! Kristin was very responsive each time and communication throughout Mila's stay was great as well. We had a meet-n-greet once and Mila and Alvin played so well together we both knew they were a good fit.

It was a rainy weekend so they spent a lot of time indoors (Mila doesn't like rainy walks lol). But Kristin sent me lots of pictures of them playing, when I picked Mila up on her last day she had the biggest smile walking with Kristin! Kristin even taught her to pull less on the leash as well. As soon as we got home she passed out and was tired from all the playing for two full days!!

I'll definitely have Mila play with Kristin and Alvin during my next vacation!

Kristin was great with our 8 month old yellow lab. They went to the park, did some training and generally looked after Gemma brilliantly. She even sent photos, texts and a video clip of their afternoon.
