About Kris

16 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
NOTE Oct 2016:
Since we have a large number of really PAWsome clients, we are very limited on space for taking on new clients right now.

My husband and I are life-long animal lovers and have had dogs or cats most of our lives. We have a fenced in yard and I work from home so I'm well suited to hosting your dog and giving them lots of attention all day! We’ve been DogVacay hosts since Dec 2014 and have really enjoyed all the new furry friends we’ve made!

OUR SPACE:
We have an older home that we are working on remodeling and have redone our backyard which now includes a 6ft fence all the way around. A wonderful play space for our visiting dogs! We have lots of blankets, dog beds, baby gates and a futon couch that belongs to the dogs too. I also love to do daily text/photo updates for you!

Payment is completed up front but don't worry! I have a flexible refund policy set so you can get a full refund up to 4 days before the stay if anything changes.

PLEASE NOTE:
It is important that you understand your dog(s) may not be the only one in my home during their stay. I require Meet and Greets for new clients so that I get a good understand of which pups may or may not work well together. I try hard to make sure all guest dogs will have a fun and relaxing time in our home.

BOOKED/UNAVAILABLE STATUS DOESN’T NECESSARILY MEAN UNAVAILABLE:
I mark dates on my calendar “unavailable” for many reasons other than us being on vacation. In addition, for repeat guests I can often accommodate your dog even when "booked" with others since I am familiar with your dog and who they will get along with. We have a smaller home and I do my best to ensure all guest dogs have a fun and safe stay. If you are looking for boarding or daycare on dates I have marked unavailable/booked, please still reach out to me to see if I am available to help :)

_____________________________
We would love to meet and help care for your dog! Please send us a message with any questions/concerns you have and I am usually able to respond very quickly.

Thanks :)
Kris and Mark

As always, Rosie comes home good and tired from playing with all the other dogs. Kris is excellent with updates and photos and I know Rosie is in the best of care!!
This was the first time our puppy was away from us for more than a day, so we are especially appreciative of the care Thor received. We also loved getting updates and seeing how happy he was playing with the other puppies, and the attention he received. Kris is also very accomodating with drop off and pick up times. We would definitely choose to have Thor stay here again!!

Our 2 dogs had an amazingly great time at Kris K.'s They spent 4 days while we were away and we received regular photo and video updates and occasional text messages regarding their experience. The dogs stayed active, were safe in their large secure backyard, and were well tended to. From the photos I could tell they were having a great time and that Kris was taking care of them perfectly. In fact, the dogs were reluctant to leave, they were having such a good time. The environment is enriching and offers the dogs logs of activity and places to hide out and rest if they need. I'd highly recommend Kris K and am definitely puttin her at the top of my dog daycare list in the future.

Louie loved being at Kris's! We received great photo updates, they celebrated his birthday while he was there. I was worried he wouldn't want to come home! Would highly recommend!!
Kris was great! I felt completely comfortable leaving my puppy with her for the weekend.
Kris and Mark are fantastic - our pup always has such a great time on vacay and we get picture/status updates along the way. It always helps knowing our pup will be in good hands while we're away!!
Our pups always have the best time with Kris! I'm pretty sure they don't miss us at all when we are away.
Kris and Mark were great as always. My puppy Albus spends a lot of time there so I love that they are flexible with times and are often available at last minute. Albus loves them too!
Kris was great! Diesel had such a fun time and hope to schedule again soon. Thanks so much!
Awesome people who took great care Kevin. We got action photos every day. Their home and outside space are very dog friendly. It's clear Kris and Mark are stellar dog people who know how to blend dog visitors, providing group time and cool-out time.
Another great visit! Barry always has a blast with Kris and Mark and the other dogs! Our kids love the photo updates-and we can tell from the updates that Barry feels right at home-whether being his goofy self or snuggling on the couch. Great care, great yard. Highly recommended.

Cheyenne LOVES going on vacation with Aunt Kris! She has been on 3 vacations now. It is a wonderful feeling knowing she is having a good time. For the first time in 3 years, I don't have a nagging worry the whole time I am away. Thank you for taking such good care of my gal pup.

Meeka ( my rambunctious siberian husky puppy) has stayed with Kris multiple times now. I am always happy to receive the daily text messages and picture updates of how my girl is doing while there! She loves to visit them and play with the other dogs and chase the squirrels in the back yard. Kris is very flexible with drop off and pick up times as well.

My Siberian Husky seemed to remember Kris' house when we pulled up to the curb! She got VERY EXCITED and literally PULLED me up the hill to her front door. Clearly she is in good hands and enjoys her time there.
My puppy was very well taken care of shen she was at Kris' house!. I was sent picture updates daily of the fun times that she was having. Would use Kris again without any reservation. Meeka LOVES it there
We LOVE booking Summit with Kris...She always has such a great time - it's evident from the multiple photo and video updates we receive while we are away. Thank you for being so wonderful with our big love bug! :)
We've used Kris more than a dozen times for doggy babysitting and daycare, and I couldn't be happier leaving our pup with her. I can trust that she will always be looking out for our Bernice and appreciate how much she interacts with the dogs that stay with her and how often she communicates with me about how everyone is doing.

I can always count on Kris to send multiple photo updates, fun videos, etc. about how the day is going. Our dog is very easygoing, but it is nice to know how she is getting along with her dog vacay "roommates."

Bernice has had some medical issues in the past few months (seizures, UTI, bite mark) and has almost always had to take some kind of medication. Kris is great about that and gives me updates on how she is taking it. One time our vet asked me to come in to get a different antibiotic because it appeared the one he prescribed was not as effective; Kris gladly went to the vet to pick it up and then was very detailed in her strategy of getting our dog to eat the much larger pill. She really went above and beyond in a situation where I was behind TSA security at the airport and couldn't really help.

I appreciate that she is prompt in her messages and always flexible with pickup and drop off. Bernice LOVES coming over and no longer lingers at the door when I drop her off - she just trots to the back to see who her new friends will be. I've seen a HUGE improvement in her social skills. We love Kris!

Kris is amazing. Super flexible, nice, and my pup loved her!
Kris and Mark are great dog hosts!! Gus has so much fun with them. We get photos everyday letting us know what Gus is up to! Kris and Mark are our top choice every time.
Kris was awesome!! My little girl instantly felt comfortable and there is so much room dedicated to pooches of all sizes. Kris sent regular updates which made me feel comfortable that I was so far away; I knew Evey was taken care of like family. I can't thank Kris enough for taking care of my baby!!

Kris and her husband are the best!!!! They really know what they are doing and know how to make a pet feel welcome! Albus will definitely be back!
Penny had a Blast at Kris's house! We got photo updates everyday of her playing in the yard and meeting new friends- which made it much easier for us to be away from her. She was exhausted when we got home, which was helpful as we were seriously jet lagged:) We already have her booked again for a fall trip.

Kris is so friendly and accommodating, and Summit always comes home tired and happy. We already have our next stay lined up! :)
Kris and Mark were so great with our pup. It's always difficult to go out of town leaving our four-legged family member at home but the daily updates reassured us that our boy was doing great. I highly recommend Kris and Mark and can not say enough great things about them. They are experienced dog owners and sitters and they really care about their house guests. Thank you so much for putting our mind at ease and taking such great care of our puppy.

Kris is experienced and caring. She communicates with her clients very well and I appreciate her updates. My senior dog thrives under her watchful eye. Will definitely book with her again.
Kris and her husband are AMAZING! My 5 month old Siberian Husky had a fabulous time at their place. Kris is incredibly organized and routine oriented! You can tell that she really enjoys getting to know the dogs that are in her care. She sent me pics or a video update every day. I felt so comfortable leaving my "little girl" with Kris that we have already scheduled another stay with her.

Kris and Mark are fantastic hosts! I am so happy I found them, and I know my dog Cleo is too. Cleo is quite an older lady but she still loves attention and loves to play. She loves going to their house and she comes home tired and happy!

I can't say enough great things. Their house is lovely and it's perfectly set up for doggy visitors. There is a great yard that is fully and safely fenced. The neighborhood is safe and quiet. She sends photos and updates about how Cleo is doing and I know that there is a lot of personal attention for all the doggy guests.

In the past I've rarely had to board her but due to some changes I now regularly have to board her for a couple nights at a time while I work. I was considering changing jobs so that I wouldn't need to board her. After finding Kris I feel comfortable boarding Cleo and she even loves spending the night! When I have boarded her before it has been at a large "dog hotel" type place. There is little personal attention and the dogs have to go potty inside on concrete. I didn't want to do that anymore and Cleo is so thankful. She used to always try to run back to the car, or hold onto me when I would drop her off. When she knows we're at Kris' she runs out of the car and up to the door. She doesn't even say bye to me, she pulls on the leash wanting to go inside and play! When I pick her up she's happy, well cared for, and most importantly she's tired :)

Our dog Rocky had a blast staying with Kris and crew during our vacation. We had a couple of practice overnights with Kris before our week-long trip and Kris sent pictures every day showing Rocky playing and napping with the other visiting dogs. He was so happy and well cared for. He thought he was at camp! We feel very fortunate to have found Kris and highly recommend this host family. Thank you, Kris!

I can't say enough great things about Kris...from the moment I contacted her to picking up Angel, the communication was great. While we were away we got pictures and updates every day. The only bad thing is when we picked her up...she wasn't nearly as excited to see us as she usually is...and she was depressed for a few days. She missed Kris and playing with all of her new doggy friends! I would recommend Kris to anyone and will be booking again this week. Thanks for making our vacation even better knowing Angel had a great time too!

It was our first time using this service, Everything went great! We will be using Kris again for sure.
It was awesome not having to worry about MIA during our trip. Kris kept us posted daily. MIA had a great time playing with the other dogs and chasing squirrels. Exceptional care. Thanks Kris and Mark!
Kris and Mark are awesome! It was our first time leaving our dog, Marbles, with people he didn't really know and I wasn't sure how he would behave
in a brand new environment. We worried for no reason. Marbles had a great week with Kris and Mark and the other dogs. He even made himself at home in their bed. The updates and photos during the week were great. I'm pretty sure that he misses them and the fun he had while we were gone. We would highly recommend them and will use them in the future for sure. Thanks Kris and Mark!

Kris and her husband were fantastic. The dogs had a great time and she sent us lots of pup updates. We loved her care some much that we are having the dogs go back for another week this Summer!
Awesome as always! Kiva loves going to "camp"!
Our dog Barry had a great time with Kris and Mark. He is newly adopted and very young- so he hasn’t had any obedience training yet. He learned to sit while on vacation! They seemed to take his energy in stride, and Kris kept us up-to-date with lots of photos and video! Our children checked in frequently to see if we had any new photos – and it made them so happy to see that he was doing well. They made sure to keep things consistent (example: sleeping in kennel at night) so that he could easily transition back home. Kris was also really flexible when we had to change our pickup time due to a delayed departure on our way home. We’ve already booked our summer vacation for Barry to stay with Kris!

Kris was great being able to accommodate us with a short notice booking due to the death of my father. Gus was eager to join the fun again at Kris' home. They took great care of him and allowed us to focus on other things. It is so reassuring knowing that your pet is so well cared for and so happy to be there. Thanks Kris.

Gus had another fabulous time with Kris and her furry friends. He loves to be outside and the fenced yard is great. He gets so much play time with them, he is a little bored when he comes home. We will book with Kris again and again!
I cannot give enough positive praise for Kris! I always dreaded the inevitable guilt that came along with bringing my pup to a kennel, but Kris provided much relief knowing that he was in great hands and spending time in a welcoming environment. I think he was sad to come home after all of the fun he had during his stay!

Our senior pups always have an amazing time staying with Kris, this visit was no exception! It is so nice receiving photo updates daily while we are away, it makes it easier for us to have fun on our vacation knowing that our "kids" are having fun with Kris, her husband, and Rugar!

Kris was a wonderful host! Very reassuring and professional. She sent frequent updates and our dogs had a blast! She seems to know a lot about dogs (and their nervous owners), and facilitated a very easy drop off and pick up! Thank you so much!
The minute we met Kris and her husband we knew we found a great place for our Rosie to stay!! We really enjoyed the daily updates and photos. My husband and I commented that Rosie enjoyed her vacation as much as we did!! It was a great comfort knowing that she was well cared for and will definitely be back!!! Thanks, Sharon and Paco Elorriaga

Greta had a blast staying with Kris! We got daily photos, updates and videos of her playing with all her new friends. Kris and her husband are extremely friendly and knowledgeable of dog breeds and behaviors. Greta sometimes has leash aggression which can make people nervous to walk her, but Kris and her husband seemed very familiar with dealing with this and welcomed Greta with open arms. There were also no emergency trips to the vet for swallowed socks or chew toys, which I always consider a win where labs are concerned!

Our dog loved her time with Kris. She was a terrific host and is great at communication with owners. We'll sign up for time with her again.
This was our first time working with Kris and Mark. They took great care of our big love bug, Summit. We received multiple photo updates throughout Summit's stay and it was evident that Summit was having a fantastic time and was well taken care of. We highly recommend them and look forward to booking with them again. :)

I can't say enough good things about Kris and her husband! We have a 10 month old Alaskan Malamute with a health condition so we only leave her when we absolutely need to and when we do I always worry like crazy. The last person who hosted her seemed a little exasperated when we picked her up and the last thing I want is for my dog to be a burden on someone. I contacted Kris and explained about Zoey's health problem and she didn't hesitate to set up a meet and greet which went so so well. I felt immediately comfortable leaving Zoey in their care but was still worried that her high energy would disrupt the household. Luckily Zoey became best buddies with another dog they had staying and kept each other busy the entire five days she was there. They have a fantastic fenced in backyard in a quiet neighborhood and their house is extremely dog-friendly. Kris sent me daily pictures and videos and it made me so happy to see they were enjoying her personality as much as we do. When we came to pick her up Zoey was so happy and healthy and they told us to bring her back anytime, which meant so much to us. I can't thank them enough for the special considerations they took for Zoey and for easing all my worries so we could enjoy our holiday. We will definitely be using them again in the future.

Kris was awesome. Super flexible with drop off-pick ups. This was my first time leaving my dog and she made it so easy. She sent tons of pictures and updates. I knew Kiva was in good hands!
Gus had a great time staying with Kris and all of their furry friends. The fenced back yard gave them lots of freedom to chase each other and the squirrels. Kris made Gus feel part of the family, so much he thought he would join "coffee time".
Gus will definitely be visiting them again soon.
Thanks Kris!!

Charlie loved staying with Kris! He spent his days running around in the yard and playing with the other dogs at the house. Kris and her husband were great to communicate with and I really loved getting a picture of Charlie every day so I could see how well he was doing!

Rocky had his third visit today and came in with his tail wagging! Kris has a great space for the dogs to hang out and the fenced yard gives us peace of mind he will be safe for his potty breaks. Thanks, Kris!
Kris is wonderful! I got great picture and video updates. She put me at ease leaving my dogs for the first time and I will be using her again!
Lindy had a great time and we loved all of the picture updates! We will visit again.
Jack, our 14lb. 13 year old mini poodle had a very good experience. We were able to enjoy our vacation because we knew our furry baby was well taken care of. Kris took the time to text us daily pictures of Jack, which was so fun for us to get. It made being away from him a little easier. Kris is a true professional that takes the business of caring for others pets very seriously. And, you can tell she truly cares. We are truly blessed to have found her.

This was our first stay with Kris, as we had to find a new doggy sitter due to our old one retiring from the business. She and her husband were great from the minute we met them at our meet and greet. They clearly know dogs well and treat all of their furry family members with love.

Bernice came home tired (from having so much fun!), and I noticed in the weeks that followed, she was very eager to sniff and greet dogs on the street (a marked and very nice change in her usually cautious behavior). It's been a long road in getting Bernice to be more social, and I could tell that staying with Kris and her family was a great place for her to vacay!

Kris was great about sending several picture updates throughout the day, so I always knew how Bernice was doing, who she was hanging out with, etc. I could tell she was very comfortable and enjoyed her time with them. Bernice bonded with their senior huskey, Sugar, to the point where they would trade beds (a HUGE deal given Bernice is usually protective of her bed, food dish, water dish, etc.). When we drove away, I saw Sugar looking longingly through the screen door, and when we got home, I could tell Bernice missed Sugar.

Bernice is currently on her second vacay with Kris, and already I have received several updates of Bernice and her new friends. When we pulled up to the house the second time, I was literally dragged towards the front door because Bernice was SO excited to be back!

We will definitely be returning vacayers!

Jasper and Tigger really enjoyed their stay with Kris. I loved getting the daily updates on how they were doing and it allowed me to enjoy my vacation more knowing that my furry children were being so well looked after. They'll be going back in February, if not before!

Any of our anxiety was quickly squelched when we were updated with texts and pictures of our 13 year old poodle looking happy and well adjusted. Having never used a professional dog sitter nor our dog ever staying with other dogs we did not know what to expect. Kris and Marks dogs were very cordial and very accepting of our dog and it was a peaceful and calm reunion. We couldn't be more pleased with how Jack's stay went. We will be using them again soon. It's such a blessing to know that our little fur baby is in capable and loving hands.

Kris is an awesome host. Great communication, flexible schedule and obviously cares a great deal about making our pup happy. Thanks, Kris, we look forward to our next visit!
They were great!
Kris and her husband came over to meet us and our dogs. I immediately knew they would be a good fit and take good care of our dogs. Kris kept us updated throughout the weekend with text messages and even sent us photos of the dogs.
Wish had a wonderful time @ this home.. She made new friends..2 legged and four legged, I enjoyed getting daily updates and photos..

I will defintley use dog vacay and Kris's home again..Because most importantly it is a Dog Loving home.. thanks so much..

Dylan loved his stay with Kris. I loved the photo updates. I hope we have the chance to use Kris again in the future.
I was so lucky to find Kris on Dog Vacay. My puppy thought he was in doggie heaven. If you have a chance to leave your precious puppy with Kris be sure to do it you will not be disappointed!!!
Kris was the best host I could have hoped for and I would whole hardheartedly recommend her to anyone. I contacted Kris practically one day before we would be requesting her services. She responded right away and by the following morning we had worked out our arrangement. She was incredibly flexible throughout and agreed to cater to my very long work hours which were constantly changing. She was awesome to work with throughout.

More importantly, my dog's stay with her was great. You can tell Kris really cares about the dogs that stay with her. Regular texts kept me up to date and came accompanied with pictures throughout the day. My dog always came home tired and happy.

Whenever I need a host again in the future, Kris will absolutely be my first choice. Cant say enough nice things about her!

Kris and her husband were awesome. Our dog, Copper, loved his time there and they were so great with him. Kris sent multiple updates throughout the vacation and she was very flexible in pick up and drop off times which we really appreciated. I will definitely have Copper stay here again. Thank you!!
Read More...
Kris and her husband Mark are absolutely amazing. She sends frequent updates/pictures and loves my little buddies as much as I do. She takes them out for walks daily and when I pick them up from their trip(s) they go right to sleep so I know they had a great time. I am very very protective of my two small dogs so after much research I booked with Kris. And I wouldn't choose for my dogs to stay with anyone else!

Kris and Mark are wonderful hosts for Ellie. They welcome her as an extension of their own puppy family. They have always been wonderfully accommodating of our varying schedules.
Rita enjoyed her stay at Kris and Mark's house. The resident pack welcomed her in and she was sad to go home. Kris sent updates daily (or more), took Rita for walks and catered to the extra attention Rita needs like glucosamine and some wet food. Kris had great responsiveness and communication and both Kris and Mark clearly love animals and treat yours like their own. We will definitely book with kris again!!

Ellie had a fantastic time on her vacation!
This was our first time using Dog Vacay. Kris was a wonderful host and our dog Sadie seemed very happy during her stay. We received regular updates which was very reassuring. I would definitely recommend her as a host. Thanks Kris!!!
Kris and Mark were great. They are true and committed dog people. They hosted our dog for 9 days and kept us updated on how she was doing every day. It was clear that they looked after her needs, and that she settled into the her new surroundings well. Their dogs are great and very welcoming to new dogs and people. I'm really glad our dog stayed with them and will not hesitate to call on them again.

Kris and her husband Mark took great care of our dog Rocky. Kris sent us fun photos of Rocky and made us very comfortable with the care he was receiving. I would recommend Kris to anyone looking for a caring environment for their pet. Thank you Kris and Mark!

Finally! A home that fit our needs perfectly. Kris was a gem. Her senior dogs welcomed my old-timer with a quick sniff and quietly went about their business. We would highly recommend this boarder.
I loved knowing that Kris & Mark were taking care of my dog, Maggie, while I was out of town. I appreciated the pictures and updates I received while I was away. Maggie was clearly at home from the minute she walked in for our meet & greet and was having fun when I came to pick her up after her stay. Knowing she was having fun and that Kris & Mark were enjoying her allowed me to relax and gave Maggie a chance to have a vacation, too!

This was our first experience using DogVacay and working with Kris K. Prior to this, we always took our dog to boarding facilities. Kris and her husband Mark were awesome! Kris was so fun to work with! I received text and picture updates multiple times a day. She went above and beyond. It's evident her love for animals. We will never take Toby to a boarding place again! Thank you Kris! :)
Read More...
Kris and Mark were as nice as can be and took such good care of Shelby (4yo black lab). I received daily pictures and updates and could tell that she was VERY well taken care of. I know that Shelby had a great time with Kris and Mark's own pups and loved every second with them!

I couldn't more highly recommend Kris and Mark for caring for your pup; I will definitely be booking with them again!

Kris well exceeded all of our expectations in the care she provided to our senior dogs, Mocha and Joey. She took them in for 5 days and made them a part of her home, something we know would not have happened had we chosen to send them to a large boarding facility. Given that our dogs are seniors, they do have limitations which Kris completely understood having 3 other resident senior dogs.

We were out of the country while away, so we weren't able to receive her daily picture updates until after we got home, but reviewing them now makes us so happy, as we can see how comfortable and happy our dogs were while we were away!

We will definitely book with Kris in the future when we need someone take care of our dogs when we leave town. Having such a wonderful family we can trust with our family (no kids for us, just dogs!) takes a lot of the stress and worry out of leaving them in the care of someone else.

Kris did a great job of taking care of Indy for me. He didn't want to leave when I came to get him!
