About Kari & Barry

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Daily walks and runs around the quiet neighborhood, a trail behind our house, and a fully fenced backyard to play in. Plenty of hugs and love from two sweet kids. Quiet time away from my kids and a nap for your fur baby(s) if needed. Your pup will feel right at home just like part of our family!
We require a meet n greet for first time guests. We want to meet you and your pup in our home and also it helps your pup feel more comfortable at drop off if he's already been here and smelled everything. We gladly accept dogs that play great with other pup guests and are comfortable with young children. If you are a last minute first time guest and you meet these requirements above but dont have time for a meet n greet please give a detailed description of your pet and a short background in your reservation request and that will help me make a quicker decision; if I need more details I will request that information.
Also boarding is a 24 hour booking and daycare is a day service without a night up to 12 hours for only $20 per day, so keep in mind when making a reservation, if you need an additional 8-12 hours on the front or back of your boarding reservation please add a daycare rate of $15 (thats a discounted rate if your pup already is on a boarding vacay with us)
Any questions please send me a General Inquiry. We hope to meet you and your pup and become your go to family to love on your fur baby!!!

Kari was great. I really enjoyed the daily updates and pictures. Her kids are great with dogs and I could tell Murphy received lots of attention.
Kari and her family were amazing. Our pup was loved and pampered during her dog vacay. They even shoveled a path for her to get under the trampoline to go potty because she hates walking in the snow. We will definitely be using her services again.
Leaving my girls with Kari was the perfect thing to do for them and us. The family environment was great for them and made our absence easier for them and us. She and her family really cared for the dogs. I will definitely take them there again.
Kari took care of Buddy when we went away for thanksgiving. she was very professional and caring. Although we were far from our dog, Kari kept us updated with everything. we really enjoyed receiving Buddy pictures daily. The pictures help reassuring us that he was not alone and was on good hands. I will definitely renew the experience and will recommend Kari to anyone.

What an exceptional first experience with DogVacay! Kari and her family took in my two pups and cared for them like they were their own. I received regular pics showing them playing and when I arrived to bring them home, I could see how much fun they had been having; they were happy and tired. I am definitely going to use Kari again.
Kari and her family did a great job with Bernie.
She was very communicative and always sent pictures of Bernie having fun with other dogs. She also made sure Bernie's food, sleep and walk routines were done properly.
She loved Bernie like her own and integrated him to the family!
Kari and her family took great care of Blossom while we were away. We got awesome pics everyday. Blossom was very happy when she got home with no stress. Normally we had boarded her at a kennel and when she would come home she would be very stressed and it would take her two days to get back to normal.

We definitely know that we are going to use Kari again!
Kari and her adorable family took wonderful care of my boy! :)
Kari and family gave Lindypup all the love and attention that a golden retriever needs!
We love leaving our puppy with Kari! She is always so happy when we pick her up. They take care of her as if she were her own.
My dog Peanut loved staying with Kari and her family! I got text and picture updates and was totally comfortable leaving my fur baby with her. I will definitely be using Kari again!
Kari and her family are awesome! My high energy dog got all the attention and excersize he needs! Any special requests we had were taken care of no problem. I felt so comfortable having my pup stay with them and will def be reserving in the future.
Cooper had a wonderful time with Kari and her family. He came back to us happy and well exercised, which is just what we want :-)
Clean and happy place to stay. This was our first experience. Very accommodating. Loved the shorter notice option. We used the service for 2 daycare days on the third day my dog was wanting to go again. I think she was pampered enough.
I think we have found a good fit for the next time.
Kari and her family took great care of my puppy, Snickers. We will definitely use her again when we go on vacation. Thanks Kari!!! :)
Kari was awesome with our husky pup! Our dog had a wonderful time with their family as if it were there own.
Our dog Daisy had a great time with Kari and her family. We will definitely be using her again!
Kari and family did a great job watching our Weimaraner. I received regular updates and pictures which allows me to be at ease seeing her happy and cared for. Kari and her family are very nice and I appreciated their flexibility with drop off and pick up. We already have booked our next reservation with them!
Thank-you for looking after our Zuzi we can tell she was looked after well and will definitely be using you again! Thumbs and paws up from us!
Kari is a true Dog lover and her family is a wonderful setting for dogs. We just moved here and they were responsive, friendly and communicative and it really helped us during our move.
Kari and her family were fantastic with our 4 month old puppy! Not only did they take great care of her and put up with all her puppy behavior but they went above and beyond with special training requests and administering medication. Kari regularly provided updates throughout our trip and was very flexible and easy to work with on timing for drop-off/pick-up. We will absolutely leave our dog with Kari again and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great dog sitter.
Herbie had a wonderful time with Kari and family. She kept me informed and sent lots of pictures. I highly recommend Kari and will definitely use her again in the future.
Kari and her family were wonderful! Molly was so loved and cared for by them while we were on vacation. Her children were so great with her, I'm not sure she even missed us a day:). Thank you for the sweet pictures you sent us while we were gone, as they made us feel great knowing how happy she was with your family!
We loved having regular updates and photos of Aussie's stay. With swimming in a kiddie pool, playing with kids and other dogs and even chewing on bones we know he had a great stay. Will definitely stay with Kari again.
Thanks to Kari and family for providing such a fun stay for our dog at their home. The daily updates and photos were a very nice touch, and our pet was very happy upon our return, which has not always been the case at some kennels. We would not hesitate to leave our pet here during our next vacation.
Kari and her family took great care of our little Corgi while we were out on vacation. Our initial pet sitter bailed on us and she was very quick to respond the night before our flight left. Both on the drop off and pick up she was extremely flexible on time and worked her best to accommodate our schedules. She sent us daily pictures and updates which we greatly appreciated. Our dog got walks and seemed very well taken care of and part of her family while we were away. She came back to us very happy, and we were very happy with the quality of care she got while we were away. So thankful for Kari and her family for being available ASAP and extremely helpful. We would definitely recommend Kari to be your pet sitter for the everyday need or while out on vacation. She is reliable and her family is very sweet.
Kari was fantastic! A last minute change of plans had me scrambling, and she was extremely accommodating and helpful. Sophie had the best time getting to play with other dogs and was sad to leave. I would absolutely bring Sophie back for a visit at Kari's!
Kari and her family did an amazing job taking care of our two dogs for the weekend. She made sure to know all the details about them before hand and made me feel confident in their care. She continually updated me with how they were doing while we were away. I could tell when I picked them up that they were well loved and happy!! This family is a jem!
Isabella loves to go to daycare with Kari and her family. They have been a dream to work with, especially with my schedule and all the problems that come with a new puppy. I definitely recommend them.
Kari and family were very loving towards Lady. Will not hesitate to book Lady again for an overnight stay.
Kari and Family were absolutely terrific!! We had a last minute need for our Jack Russell puppy and we very much appreciated how accommodating she was to help us. Kari will now be our first call for all future dog sitting needs. Highly recommend her as well.
Kari and her family were wonderful, and I highly recommend them. I will definitely use her again the next time we go out of town. They took such good care of our dog and I so appreciated the daily pictures and updates that gave us.
Superb! It's always hard dropping off your dog for an extended period of time but we felt as though he was well taken care of. The daily updates were great! We will definitely use Kari again.
5 Star experience. I own two energetic huskys and needed to find pet care on very short notice. Kari quickly responded to messages and provided amazing care for my puppies. They are an extremely nice family and have a great place to let your dogs hang out for the day. Highly recommended!
Kari and her family were great for our puppy! I was very nervous about leaving my puppy for the first time as she was only 12 weeks old. I got photo updates throughout the day that were very reassuring. The first day Kona got sick (just an upset stomach) and Kari was very concerned and helpful in making sure she had a recovery. The second day Kona was much more comfortable and she had a great day at daycare. Perfect back yard for dogs and they walked her as well. Great communication and quick responses. Thanks again!
Kari and her family was great with our dogs. Our fur babies look like they had a great time with her family. Baxter our dog loved all the attention and playtime he had with Kari's kids. Kari gave us email updates and pictures of our dogs while we were gone. It gave us peace of mind knowing they were having fun while we were gone.
Absolutely fantastic in every single area. Not only did Kari and Barry fulfill all of Aspen's needs (and she was on steroids, so the bathroom breaks were more frequent than normal), but they kept us updated throughout the weekend with pictures and messages. Their kids and Aspen got along extremely well. Highly recommended and will definitely be looking to let Aspen stay with them again when the time comes!
