I have only good things to say about Kristen, and if my pets could speak they would say the same! She's worked as a kennel supervisor and for a dog walking and pet sitting service for years and it's clear that she has the experience with all breeds of dogs! She's also always available! Kristen has come to my rescue so many times. She has watched my pets for me on a days notice, no questions asked. She is always available and is always able and willing. I trust her with my two dogs so much that we left them in her care for a month and a half while my family and I toured Europe. My dogs are like my children so it was scary leaving them for so long, but she eased my worries! She is so loving towards our pets and she treats them like her own. I know that my dogs are in the best hands they could possibly be in with her. She not only walks them, but she takes them to the park and out to play all the time. It's hard to find a pet sitter like her. Definitely don't hesitate to book with Kristen. Your pets will thank you!

Kristen was very easy to work with, and my dog came back clean and happy!
Everything seemed to go really well and she was very easy to communicate with.
Kristen was great with holly and really made me feel okay about leaving her for a few days. Holly is usually very scared of strangers, and she immediately warmed up to Kristen! Kristen was also very accommodating and accepted our last minute reservation, and was super flexible on drop off/pick up. I would highly recommend Kristen! Thank you!
Kristen did a great job with Piper and her communication was good. If I go on vacation again, I will definitely use her.
I am so glad that I found Kristen to be my sitter. I was worried about leaving my dog for such a long period of time and leaving her with Kristen made it easier. My dog was happy and healthy when I picked her up. Thank you to Kristen for being flexible with drop off and pick up times. Will definitely request her again!
Kristen was great!
Kristen was wonderful. Upon arrival we were talking about feeding schedules and my dog (Dakota) proceeded to crap on her living room floor. I was mortified but she assured me it was no big deal, they get nervous too etc. When I picked Dakota up she was happy to see me but not in that "thank-God-you're-here" sort of way.
Kristen was also very flexible with her schedule in drop off/pick up- much appreciated.
Despite Dakota's faux pas (there were blessedly no repeats), she has been invited back again. I will definitely use Kristen again as a warm home and loving heart beat out a kennel any day.
Kristen was the best! Her expertise with dogs was evident from the first meet and greet where she helped our dog get comfortable with her right from the start. She went out of her way during the trip to provide reassuring updates - we were able to relax, knowing he was in good hands. Kristen took excellent care of our Mr. Montgomery Ruffles! We will use her again and recommend her without hesitation!!
Kristen was great to work with and Sadie was well taken care of. Kristen responded quickly to texts and really cares about the dogs in her care. Would recommend her to people needing a place for their dog.
Rico had such a great time with Kristen! He actually was somewhat aloof when his papa came to pick him up, like he wanted to stay, lol. Thank you so much for having him for the holidays!
Great job! My doggies were happy and healthy when I picked them up and they are really really picky dogs that have spent every day with my for their entire lives. This to me means that Kristin did an incredible job in getting them through their usual depression and getting them to exercise. Neither dog had gained any weight during their stay!
Kirsten was hospitable, flexible, and caring. I would recommend Kristen to anyone who needs a dependable and caring pet sitter. Great experience, and would book again with her in a heartbeat!
Very responsive and responsible. A pleasure to work with!
Lexi was a happy girl when I picked her up after five days with Kristen, which, according to past experiences with other sitters, is a good indication of how her stay went.

Kristen is a caring yet professional sitter, and I would not hesitate to recommend her services.
