About Brion and Kim

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We lost our beloved Lab/Shepherd mix named Dakota and would love a dog in the house once again. My wife and daughter have been begging me for years to get a dog so taking care of your dog would be a blessing. Plan on your dog getting lots of walks, petting and love. We also have a fenced-in back yard.

We are in the middle of having our girl, Emma, stay with Brion and Kim. She looks to be having a great time and I am so glad she's being loved on, played with and taken care of so well. And they are very patient and understanding with pupalump parents (me mainly) that haven't really had their girl stay away from home with anyone else. And love the daily pictures Kim sends of Emma. Does my heart good. :-)

Brion and Kim did an outstanding job taking care of our border collie, Haley. They took her for walks, threw the Frisbee, and sent lots of photos. Haley used to get stressed out to the point of requiring vet care when we left her at a kennel. After her stay with Brion and Kim she was relaxed, healthy and happy. We could not be more pleased!

Axel had a great time. He was treated like a king for the entire weekend. He couldn't have been with a better family than Brion and Kim. Axel loves their daughter Maggie. She made sure Axel got plenty of attention.
We felt so comfortable leaving Stella with Brion and Kim! They sent us daily updates and pictures. Very flexible with drop off and pick up also! Would definitely recommend them!!
Our two Labs LOVED staying with Kim and Brion!!! They were well cared for (and loved) for the time we were away. The pictures and captions were also appreciated! Geordi sends a special "Woof" to M!!! Thanks again for caring for our two dogs!
Our 1st experience using Dogvacay was absolutely amazing! We were completely at ease leaving our precious Allie with this sweet family. I can not stress enough how Kim&Brion did everything to make our baby feel like she was on vacation also. They updated us & sent pictures daily. We know the first people we will call when we need a sitter again. Thank you so much Kim & Brion!!

My first experience using this service was wonderful! I felt like I was leaving my dog with a family member.
Pete loves his stays at Brion and Kim's! Wonderful hosts.
Fantastic, as always!
Kim and Brion were absolutely amazing. They sent us pictures of our dog throughout the week and kept us updated on how he was doing. They also didn't mind if we wanted to check in throughout the week. Our dog had so much fun going on walks and playing fetch in the backyard. He came home as happy as can be. It was great to feel so comfortable leaving our dog while we were away for a week.

Hugo had a wonderful time staying with Kim and Brion. They were very warm and welcoming and have a great setup for dogs. I would wholeheartedly recommend them for your dog vacay needs and Hugo is already looking forward to staying with them again!
Brion and Kim are great! They truly treat your pup like they would their own. The house and yard are very nice and dog friendly. I'm glad to have found them.
Brion and Kim are great. Their home is welcoming and the backyard is perfect for outdoor fun. They updated me regularly with pictures and texts to let me know that my dog was doing well. Very happy and will definitely have my dog stay with them again.

Wonderful, as always! Thanks so much!
Ellie had the best time! Brion, Kim and Maggie treat Ellie like she was a part of their family. Kim is so easy to work with and was flexible for pickup and drop off. Ellie is always happy, relaxed and healthy when she comes home.
Any vacation away from Ellie is hard on me. This was a particularly long separation from our dog. Brion, Kim and Maggie were the best hosts. We were updated daily with great photos and texts of Ellie's vacay stay. Ellie was happy, healthy and relaxed when we picked her up. It definitely represents how much love and attention this family showed our dog. We were able to relax and enjoy our vacation knowing the best of care was being given to Ellie. Thanks for hosting!!!!

Ellie had the best time. Brion and Kim sent daily updates to let me know how she was getting along. Ellie was well cared for and came home happy and healthy. I will definitely use Brion and Kim for future doggie vacations. They are a very loving family and it certainly shows.

Thank you for taking such great care of my Ellibean.

Wonderful, as always! Roxy can't wait to go back :)
Brion and Kim were wonderful with Bailey!! They sent us pictures during her visit to let us know how she was adjusting. We look forward to having Bailey stay with Brion & Kim again in August!!
Allie always seems content and not anxious when visiting.
Another wonderful stay with Brion and Kim! We love knowing our pup is in good hands. They are always accommodating and always stay in contact with pics of how she is going.
Maddie had a great time with Brion and Kim during her first stay. Brion and Kim were extremely flexible and it was clear they had our dog's best interest in mind. We have already booked Brion and Kim for an extended stay over the holidays.
My 1 year old Shih-tzu, Zoey, absolutely loved this family! From the moment she walked in, she acted like she was at home. I got pictures daily, and I couldn't have chosen anyone better to watch Zoey. She even slept in the bed with them!
Thank you guys for everything!

Brion and Kim are always super accommodating and do a fantastic job making sure our dog is comfortable. Our minds are always at ease whenever Pete stays with them.
Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! Need I say more?
As usual, Allie seemed to enjoy her visit with the family, and made new friends along the way........
Kim and Brion were terrific! They were very easy to work with, quick to respond, and accommodated all our needs. We did love those photo updates too!
As usual, we think that Allie truly enjoyed her 2 week stay with Brion & Kim. They made her feel at home with their family. They seem to really enjoy taking care of other's pets and we appreciate their interest and attention and intend to always take Allie to them whenever possible.......Jo & Bill Meyer

A wonderful experience again! Kim and Brion were very accommodating to our change in schedule and Roxy was relaxed and happy when we picked her up : )
AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME! Great communication throughout the stay! Warm, loving, pet friendly environment. Thank you Kim & Brion for everything!
Kim and Brion were wonderful! They sent us text and picture updates almost every day, and we could tell Roxy was having a great time! She was calm and relaxed when I picked her up. I will definitely book with them the next time we go out of town.
Fantastic as always!
Brion, Kim and Maggie were the best!!! From the pictures they sent to us I could tell Wesley made himself right at home :) They followed our instructions on his medication and feeding and their communication with us while we were gone put our mines at ease so we could enjoy our vacation. Wesley will definitely go back for another visit when the occasion arises!

This was my second time leaving Jack with Brion and Kim. It was a great experience. They sent plenty of pictures while I was gone and they took him on daily jogs and walks. Jack had a large fenced in yard to play in and their daughter was wonderful with him. I will definitely be booking with them again.

A++++ Sadie was well cared for and I was kept in the loop daily. I think she likes Brion and Kim's place more then my home.
Brion and Kim have once again been excellent hosts for Pete. Our minds are at ease knowing he is being taken care of so well while we are away. Highly recommend them.
Excellent as always!!
My wife and I have only used DogVacay once, but so far it has been an excellent experience. We have a very non-traditional dog with several quirks, but Brion and Kim were very welcoming and try to do everything they could to make our dog feel at home. I think it will take another visit or two for Nala to be truly comfortable, but we will definitely be sticking with Brion and Kim!

Allie seems to have enjoyed her stays with Brion & Kim. They have gone out of their way to make her comfortable in their home and we plan to continue to use them whenever possible in the future.
Having Brion and Kim take care of our dog was a great experience! We had never left her for more than 1 night before so we were pretty nervous about a 10 night separation. Brion and Kim were fantastic! We felt very comfortable with them and I think our puppy did too! They followed our schedule and they sent pictures just about every day which we really enjoyed. We were able for relax and enjoy our vacation knowing that our dog was being well taken care of.

They are always flexible on drop off and pickup times. Every time I pickup my dog she is happy as can be. She always has a great time. Couldn't ask for anything better as she is treated a good as you treat your own dog. A++++++
We were very pleased with Brion and Kim. The dogs looked happy and very much at home as we received several pictures while they were on their dogvacay!
Duke loved his stay at Brion & Kim's. When we arrived, Brion invited us in and asked plenty of questions about Duke and how to care for him. We were so excited to get an update email while we were away letting us know how Duke was doing and getting a pic text of him playing.

There was no time limit on when we were to come to pick him up on the 2nd day, which made traveling home easier and felt less rushed.

When we arrived to pick Duke up from his vacation, Kim and Brion told us that he played with their neighbors dogs and even went for walks with them. We would definitely recommend this home for your pet, especially first timers who are little nervous about leaving your baby (dog) with strangers. They are a very warm and welcoming family. We will definitely be contacting for future trips!

Once again Brion and Kim did an excellent job taking care of our golden retriever; Grover! He was a very happy puppy and looked well-loved when we came to pick him up. Such a sweet family that we plan to use as long as they let us!!
Tino LOVED staying with Brion, Kim and Maggie, and he got his Christmas wish of getting his own ‘girl’, at least for a short time. He came home healthy, relaxed and happy.(even suggesting that ‘the treats were better at their house’ :) This is a great family, caring and knowledgeable. I cannot think of a better environment when taking him along is not possible. I would give more stars if possible

This family was fantastic for our buddy while we were out of town. They were diligent in accommodating his likes and providing him with the same comforts he has in our home. These are definitely the type of people you can feel comfortable leaving your furry children with.

We needed care for our 8 month old malshi named Millie for a 4 day trip, and were so happy to discover Dog Vacay and the option of having her stay in a home instead of a kennel. I sent Brion a request for a meet & greet and he responded quickly. Millie & I visited Brion at his home and he listened thoughtfully as I discussed Millie's schedule and personality. He answered whatever questions I had, and said Millie would be a welcomed guest into their home. I delivered Millie for her stay, and received text updates and pictures while we were away, which were very appreciated. The experience was very positive and I would definitely recommend Brion and his family to anyone seeking a caring environment for their pet.

Brion and Kim were excellent! Very friendly couple with a beautiful home that had a fenced in yard.
Brion sent several pictures through out our vacation and was very sweet and accommodating to all Grover's needs. I will absolutely be taking Grover back :)

Picked Allie up last night after her two week stay and she seemed to be very content and comfortable with her vacation family. Brion kept us up to date by sending texts and photo's during our vacation in Hawaii. We highly recommend his family's caring service rather than putting your pet in a kennel. We will continue to use his services whenever possible. Jo & Bill Meyer

I want to thank Brion, Kim and Miss Maggie, they took such great care of our two dogs!!! They can be a handful but they would do what it took to make the dogs feel welcome and comfortable (just like at home). I would get text messages to keep me informed on what the girls were doing or not doing. Their Daughter Maggie even read them stories (awesome). I would use them over and over. Cause my dogs are my children. Bella and Buffy say thank you! Kathleen B.

Gemma was very comfortable with Brion's family right from the start. They have lots of experience with dogs and provide a great family environment. The house and backyard are everything a dog needs. The pictures Brion sent me of Gemma assured me my dog was in good hands. Gemma looked relaxed, comfortable, & happy. There is no way a kennel or doggie daycare could provide the same level of care. We are very happy to have found Brion's family using DogVacay, and will definitely leave Gemma with them on future vacations.

Brion and the family were great. We knew it was going to be a great fit for our pups while we were away. We can't thank them enough. We will definitely be using Brion and family for our next trip.
Brion & family were great. They helped us out when we need a dog sitter on short notice and were very accommodating to whatever our dog was accustomed to. They took care of our dog as if it were their own. Also, they have a great house and fenced-in yard for the dog to play in. Hopefully we'll be using them again soon. Thanks!

We are so thrilled we found Brion and his wonderful family. This was a blessing for us and our fur-baby Murphy, our very active Lab. The idea of a kennel type environment really bothered us. After our meet and greet we knew we had found the perfect place for him. We received pictures and updates during his stay. He was walked, went on runs with Brion and played fetch. He had lots of cuddle time with their daughter. We will definitely use them again. I have already recommended Brion to my mom for her trip in January next year. I have a feeling that Murphy will miss Brion and his family.

Bella had a grand time with Brion and Kim and will be going back again next week! Bella especially enjoys her runs with Brion and cuddling with their little one on the couch!
Brion responded to my inquiry right away. I always seem to be last minute or almost late my life is so busy. The meet and greet was telling! While away Max had such a great time in your care. The entire family showed Max so much love. It was a joy. Also, thanking you again for the pics sent while I was away. I would recommend this family to anyone that wants a home environment for their loving dog while traveling.

Brion and his family watched our 3 month old puppy Bella for 2 nights. It was very short notice. They meet us on Thursday and watch Bella on Friday. They did a great job! A very nice family who welcomed our dog into their home and treated her like she was apart of their family. We will be using them again when we go vacation.

I started with a meet and greet, not only did I observe that Maggie and Farley seemed to feel comfortable but Brion made me feel that my dogs were welcome and that he and his wife were very much dog lovers. So thankful that I got into the dog Vacay website. Brion is just two blocks away from where I live. I am leaving my dogs with them again in a couple days. So happy that I have an alternative to boarding with a dog camp. Feel free to research this couple, you won't be disappointed .

Very, very satisfied !

I am soo thankful to have found Brion and his family. They took excellent care of Pyper. My dog has severe food and environmental allergies, which can cause her to become ill. Brion took the time to review her allergies as well as her food & medicine regimen. I was updated on how Pyper was doing and this enabled me to enjoy my vacation. Pyper had such a great time that she promptly got in her bed and went to sleep as soon as I arrived home. I will certainly use their service again and highly recommend them.

We were so thankful to find Brion to watch our dog at the last minute while we went on vacation. I would highly recommend him to anyone that needs someone to care for their pet! I felt like Rambo was well taken care of and treated as part of the family. I received several photos and updates during the week and felt like Rambo was having a great time! Brion took the time to learn Rambo's routine and made sure he felt at home. We will definitely be contacting Brion again the next time we have to be out of town!

After meeting with the Kennelly family, I knew Daisy was in good hands. They were home the majority of the week and kept her well exercised! From my understanding, their daughter fell in love and was always wanting to throw the ball and/or frisbee. I was updated frequently on how she was doing and how much the Kennelly's were enjoying her company. Because of them, I was able to enjoy my vacation, worry free. I will certainly be using their services in the future. They really put their heart into caring for Daisy, and I can't thank them enough for a great first experience!

I enjoyed the experience I had with Brion and his family. My dog enjoyed playing at their house and playing with his daughter. They sent many pictures and kept me updated with how Jack was doing throughout his stay. I will definitely be using them again next time I need a sitter for my dog.
