About Kim

11 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi Everyone,

I live in Franklin, MA and am a stay at home mom. We have 3 dogs, a Golden Doodle and 2 Australian Labradoodles. They love to play. Small, Tall, Short, Big, WE LOVE them all. I'm home all day, have a fenced in yard and we are a "Dog" family

We welcome your dog into our home or can come to you, if you live close by. Whether you're going away for a few days or a few weeks, we can help care for your dog. He/ She will be part of the family. Chasing the kids, chasing ball and having a great time!

We try to keep the max at 4 dogs at a time; plus my 3 dogs. Sometimes that doesn't happen. All the dogs love to come and play here :) I always meet the dogs and make sure everyone will get along and things go smoothly. If you have any concerns about the amount of dogs in my home, please feel free to ask.

Due to doggy parasites we require fecal testing 48 hours before they come. This will keep everyone happy and healthy!

Look forward to hearing from you.

Was extremely friendly and good to my puppy, especially on his first night away from home!
Kim took such good care of our dog Gus over our vacation. He had a blast playing with other buddies-- even got to "swim" in a kiddie pool on one 90 degree day. I'd definitely use her again.
Kim and family were great. We got pictures of our dog while on vacay and everything went just like it should. Thanks Kim!
My two dogs loved staying there. She had several dogs to keep them company, which they enjoyed. They also enjoyed sleeping in bed with her at night. My dogs like to sleep with someone.
Awesome dog sitter. Our dog feels like he is home, and greets Kim, just like he greets me! He loves the other dogs, and I feel like he's getting the best care possible. Kim attends to all his needs and even soaked his foot when he had an infection. And...best of all...our dog gets to sleep in the family bed at night. Couldn't ask for a better situation!

Teddy had another great stay with Kim and her family. They are very accommodating and make the dogs feel like they are right at home. I really like the fenced in yard as the dogs can play safely indoors and outside. Thanks Kim - we'll be back!
Kim was great with our dogs and they felt right at home with her family and resident dogs. I got an update along with photos that let us know our dogs were thriving and having fun with their new friends. Would very much recommend Kim as your next host!

I was so nervous about leaving my baby, Sophie, with anyone. I looked around at some potential boarding facilities, and I was not pleased with any of them. A friend recommended dog vacay and I was a little scared. Sophie and I met with Kim, and I instantly had a great feeling. Sophie loved her dogs, her family, and the toys! Sophie had a great time overnight. I will definitely be booking again in the future!

Our 2 dogs spent the week with Kim. They have only ever been left with friends so this was a big change for us. The dogs came home happy and tired! Both were well taken care of and received so much attention! Kim sent pictures several times throughout the week and even my shy girl did not come home stressed out! Very accommodating for a late pick up to avoid an additional night. Will definitely utilize Kim in the future!

Cooper had a great stay with Kim. I would highly recommend her and have already booked another stay with her. It's nice to go away and be confident that your dog is being well looked after and loved. So much better than a kennel! And my kids and I really appreciated the pictures that Kim sent us during Cooper's stay!

I was a little nervous leaving my pup for the first time, but Kim really calmed my nerves. After our meet and greet a few weeks prior to Parkers first stay I felt extremely comfortable leaving him with her. I could tell how much she cared about the dogs in her care and how she really treated them as her own. When I picked him up he seemed like he had a great weekend playing with all the other dogs. Kim sent a few updates throughout the weekend that included pictures which was great! We are going away next month for a week and I am completely relaxed knowing he will be in her care. I can't recommend her enough!

Caesar loves to stay with Kim! He had a great time and Kim shared lots of great photos of him during his stay.
Once again, Kim and her family treated our 1.5 year old dog like a member of their family! We received pictures and updates while we were away for the holidays. It is such a pleasure and relief to be able to leave our puppy with a loving family in a home environment. Thank you Kim!

Lucy's stay was great. She was happy to play with her new friends and well taken care of! Thank you Kim :).
We asked Kim and her family to watch our 7 y/o boxer Lucy over Christmas. It seems like she had a blast! Kim was a great communicator, always quickly responding to messages and check-ins, and sent a few pictures and updates to me even without my prompting which I appreciated. We would definitely go back to Kim for future needs.

AMAZING! we had never boarded our dogs and were very hesitant she treated them as if they were her own. Thank you so much!
Kim is friendy and welcoming, and my dog Nala came home happy and healthy!
Kim has a nice fenced in area for the dogs!
Fantastic experience for our Lilly...Kim and her family are very caring and accommodating...highly recommended!
Mila had an overnight doggie vacation with Kim. I was a little nervous leaving her. Kim was wonderful and Mila truly had a wonderful sleepover. I had set a time to pick her up the next day, but got stuck in traffic on the way home and was quite late for her pick up. Kim was understanding and kind. Mila was comfortable staying with Kim and her family and felt right at home - so much so that she needed a little coaxing to leave.

Another great stay at Kim's - our dog was so excited to return and to see Kim and her dogs!
Kim and her family were great with our sweet, sensitive Havanese. Kim was quick to respond and kept us updated with texts and photos. We'll definitely be leaving our dog with Kim again - thank you!
Once again Kim's house was great - I'm not even sure our dog wanted to come home! :)
Chloe had a great time at Kim's and I was able to enjoy my vacation knowing Chloe was well taken care of! Texts and pictures updating me throughout our vacation showed Chloe having lots of fun and getting plenty of attention! I would definitely recommend Kim to any and all of my friends with dogs! She treats them like one of her own!!! I was very impressed with Kim and her family from our first meeting. Her house is impeccable and odor-free, despite the number of dogs she has in her home!

Kim is awesome. So laid back and understanding with the pooches - and the people:) She was quick to respond, send us updates along the way, and most importantly - took amazing care of our dog.
We left our 10-month old goldendoodle with Kim for one week as we traveled out-of-state to see family for the holidays. Kim was everything she advertised and our puppy had a blast! She sent daily text updates, pictures and videos of him playing, which helped ease our nerves about how he was adjusting. We had never left him with anyone before AND were first time users of Dog Vaycay (which by the way, has great customer service!). It was such a relief knowing that our puppy was in the comfort of a home, with other dogs to play with -- and lots of family members to give him love and attention. We will definitely make a reservation with Kim again when we travel and need accommodations for our dog. Highly recommended!

Kim watched our two babies Zoe and Phoebe. It was our first time using a pet sitter. She was FABULOUS with them. She even sent their nervous parents pics and videos daily! Thanks so much the Sents Family :)
Our rescue dog had some initial anxiety, but Kim did a wonderful job making her feel at home.
Kim and her family were wonderful. It was our first time using DogVacay and we were nervous leaving our anxious Shitzhu at a Kennel. This seemed like a great alternative for him.

Kim was very welcoming and accommodating. She is quick to respond to any questions or emails. Our dog was on medication when he arrived and she was great about giving him his meds. I immediately felt more relaxed leaving him there. After 9 days, he was very excited to see me, but also seemed very happy and comfortable with Kim and was very well cared for!

Kim send periodic texts and pictures during the week to give us a good feeling that he was doing well.

I'd definitely recommend Kim and will definitely use her again!

Once again our dog had a great experience staying with Kim! Thanks.
Cody had a great experience with Kim H. We felt very comfortable leaving Cody with her and her family.
Kim H, is the best!
We had a great experience with Kim and her family! She was very accommodating, reassuring and flexible. Our dog Teddy (Labradoodle) felt at home and was immediately comfortable with her dogs who were both very sweet and friendly. We will definitely be back!!!

We have a sweet, shy rescue dog that absolutely hates any kind of cage or kennel. We were so excited to find Kim and have our dog stay with her instead of staying in a traditional kennel atmosphere. Kim was wonderful with her and sent us pictures to know that she was doing just fine. Kim is amazing and I totally recommend her to anyone looking for a home-away-from-home for their pet.

Very friendly, dog-loving family who took excellent care of our boy. Thanks Kim!
Kim and her family were absolutely amazing!! Everyone was super welcoming and my dog became part of their family while I was gone! My dog was even reluctant to leave when I got back she had so much fun! Definitely will be leaving Macie with them again!

Kim and family were great with my dogs. The dogs were happy and I was relaxed about boarding them since I knew Phoebe and Lola were in good hands.

Kim communicated with me several times over the week just to keep in out touch. We had a great experience and we will surely look forward to using Kim again.

Kim did a great job with Rosco. We would not hesitate to use her again. Pleasure to deal with as well.
Our dog Regina had a great time with Kim! We received several pictures (which were so nice to see!) and she was happy and healthy when we got home. We hope to use Kim again this summer. :)
Kim was very responsive and easy to work with! Walter had a great stay and my first experience with dogvacay.com was a good one thanks to Kim.
My two Westies had a great stay! Kim was wonderful and our communication great !
Everything went smoothly!
