About Kira

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Our family loves dogs, we'd love to watch your special pup while you are away. We have no dogs of our own, so your dog would have all our attention! We will watch, walk, snuggle, and take care of your pup as if it was our own. We have large, totally fenced in backyard! Our yard is very large, we got the fence so our doggie guests have the best possible time while staying with us. They love chasing balls and lounging with us back there. It is basically like having a dog park in the backyard :-).

We work from home, so are basically here to hang with your dog 95% of the time. We may leave the house at times for an errand or dinner, so your dog would need to be able to be trusted at our house for a few hours. For nights, we'd take care of your dog in the same way you do (crate or with us).

We have 2 children and a cat, so your dog would need to be comfortable with both.

My policy is if we have no dog booked, you can request your dog(s) to be our only guest and we will happily accommodate. If you are comfortable with other dogs too, we may book another dog at the same time, if we know they are friendly with other dogs. They tend to love the Doggy playtime.

I understand that dogs are a part of the family and will send texts and photo updates daily so you are able to relax comfortably knowing your dog is in good hands.

Kira and her family took such great care of Pearl and sent me daily updates which made me happy and able to relax on my vacation. Pearl was happy as a clam there with a cat friend and two fun boys to play with!
Thank you again Kira and her caring family for caring for Koby!
Koby spent a few nights here as I had to travel for work. It's always so comforting knowing he will be safe, and happy spending time here
Koby spent another day with Kira's family loving the fenced in back yard! We always look forward to Koby going to this family's home.
Super fun day lots of playing and seemed so happy all night after being given so much love.
Koby can't wait to visit this family again they're always so good to him.
Koby loves Kira's family and house. He's boarded here and spent time during days I had extensive travel. Every time I take the turn down her street he wants me to go faster getting there. Dogs have a good sense for excellent caretakers and this family gets all the stars we can give for ratings! She has always been so awesome with updates and quick responses.

Kira was great. She sent me photos and updated me frequently. Such a relief to find someone who took such great care of our dog.
My pup had a fabulous time at Kira's house for the long weekend.
Kira and her family provided a wonderful home away from home for our mutt. We received many photo and video updates while we were away. Kira was flexible when our plans changed and went above and beyond to make it a great experience. Highly recommend!

Kira and Steve, are amazing! They helped our family out at extremely short notice with a young puppy. Booking could not have been easier, and Tony had a wonderful experience. The family were as caring as we are, and reassured us tremendously. Highly recommended. Thank you both, I daresay we will be back for more :)

Kira and her family are wonderful doggie hosts! Our dog - who'd never been away from us - totally enjoyed their warmth and the fun of playing with 2 boys and several dogs in their huge and safe back yard. I only hesitate to say great things because I know it'll be harder to get a spot in their home for our next trip! Thank you, Kira!

Kira and her family welcomed Clover with open arms. Kira sent many communications while we were away and when we picked up our dog she was happy, fed and exhausted! :-)
Kira and her family took excellent care of Winston on his recent 2 1/2 day visit and we look forward to many more.
Riley had an amazing time at Kira's! She loved running around in the expansive fenced in back yard and being loved and snuggled by the humans in the house. Kira communicated daily with us through email and text message, and sent wonderful photos as well. We felt connected with Riley while we were away, and at ease that she was so well cared for. Riley especially enjoyed the company of the other dogs that came to stay with Kira as well. It was a wonderful socialization opportunity. Riley is looking forward to staying with Kira again!

It was not at all easy for me to think about leaving my dog behind while going on vacation. He is two, and we've never been apart! We are very close and I love him dearly. So I looked at several options, but settled on Kira and her family, and am so happy that I did. Kira is the perfect combination of easy-going and common sense/knowledgable. When I met her, she got right down on the floor, and my guy sat in her lap. I got the feeling nothing would rattle her, and that he would be in good hands. She seems to really understand dogs and appreciate their different personalities. Also, her backyard is HUGE! It is like a park, and is very securely fenced. I left not only my dog, but also his twin sister, with Kira for a week. Each day we received updates and photos. And when I picked them up, they seemed completely relaxed and happy -- just like they do at home. They have been sleeping a lot since back at home. I think they had a lot of fun. I didn't need to worry at all. Kira and her family, are just great. I am very thankful.

Kira and family took special care of our little corgi pup. We especially enjoyed the photo updates. We would highly recommend her to care for your pup or grown dog.
Saffy our Golden Retriever loves Kira's family. Kira sent me photos on updates. Has large fenced in yard so no worries about dogs getting out.
Our dog Luke had a wonderful time at this home. You will feel the warmth when you meet Kira and her family. While we were enjoying our time away we saw through her pictures how well Luke adjusted. Very safe home and fenced in backyard. Steve and Kira are experienced and keep detailed notes. We will use them again.

I was very happy with my dog's first stay with Kira. He seemed to like everything a lot right from the meet-and-greet, especially the giant fenced yard where he immediately began running and playing. When it came to leaving Nazer for real, I felt very confident that he will be taken good care of, and everything went very smoothly indeed. He usually misses me and doesn't eat well when I am away, but in Kira's house he even ate better than I expected. Kira took him on walks every day and sent me photo updates daily. I will certainly leave Nazer with Kira again!

Lincoln had a great time staying with Kira and her family! Lincoln was there for a long time and got lots of play and attention. Kira sent multiple updates daily so I knew he was in good hands. I would highly recommend Kira!
Our experience with Kira (and her family) was fabulous. We met Kira a week before Cali's stay and she was happy from the get go. Kira sent me texts and pictures almost everyday and was wonderful when Cali (a 3 month old puppy) had to get up in the middle of the night as well. We will definitely be using Kira the next time we go away!

Great person! She was amazing with Franklin and sent me pictures daily! Can't wait to see use her again!! Thank you.
Kira and her family hosted our dog, Tucker, for a day and we were very pleased. He was warmly welcomed by the family and was happily tired when he came home. During the stay I got great picture updates. It's clear Kira and her family very much enjoy being on DogVacay, and I'm sure my dog can tell too. I would definitely recommend Kira.

Kira and her warm loving family were exceptional with our puggle coco. We met the family at the meet and greet and knew this family was a perfect match for us. Coco connected with the family right away, which enabled us to get away and feel confident she was with a wonderful family. Coco has diabetes, requiring 2 shots a day and a particular diet and Kira was able to care for coco and her needs easily and responsibly, no problem! We received updates and photos each day that were fun and funny and made our day! Kira and family is now our extended family for coco, reliable, professional, warm and loving. Already booking our next getaway with Kira!

Simply amazing!!! The best description of the environment and love our girl received over our weekend away. Kira and family kept us updated with texts and pictures which was great. We will be leaving her with this awesome family again in the near future. If your looking for a local dog sitter look no further they are the best!

Kira and her family gave our two dogs plenty of attention with lots of walks, brushes and general love. We got regular updates and pictures and the dogs looked like they were always having fun. Will definitely use Kira again.
Kira took excellent care of our high energy, black lab puppy. When she returned home it was obvious that she had been given care and exercise.
Kira and her family are such amazing hosts for dog "Doug." We love seeing the pictures of how at home he is with Kira while we're away! It genuinely means a lot, and makes us feel quite reassured that Doug is enjoying his stay. Thanks again!
Wonderful experience! Looking forward to leaving Duke with Kira and her family again!
I felt so comfortable leaving our dog Bentley with Kira and her family. From the moment I walked through the doors I felt like my dog would be loved and he sure was. They sent multiple pictures while we were gone and kept us in the loop which we loved. They loved Bentley like he was their own dog and we will definitely be using them again!

Kira and her family could not be kinder nor more accommodating! They genuinely treated our dog like a member of their family, and sent frequent updates and cute pictures during his stay with them. We are so grateful to have them host our pooch, and without hesitation, will have our dog stay with them again in the future. Thanks so much, Kira!

Our dog Sam had a great stay! When I walked in to pick him up, he seemed so comfortable and happy. Kira and her family played with my dog, took him on walks and brought him to a parade! They even dealt with some of my dog's nervous adjustment behavior without complaint. I feel like Sam truly had a "vacation"! Great communication and care. Would definitely recommend!

If you are looking for a true 'home away from home' for your beloved 4-legged member of the family, then you have found your place! This was Loona's first stay with Kira and she had a rockin' good time. Welcomed into a loving family, she got all the love and attention and fun I could possibly ask for. We received so many great pictures of her adventures, new friends, and cuddling with the gang. Kira was fully attentive to all her needs and Loona-isms. Truth be told, I think Loona was a little sorry to leave! A great time was had by all and we could relax, knowing she was in the best of hands. We will certainly be back whenever the need arises!
