About Ka

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, My name is Ka and I would love to have your pet stay in my loving home. I live in a private house with a fenced yard for your dog to run around. My husband Jeff is a huge dog lover as well. He works from home, so your pet will always be in good company during the day. We recently lost our 14 year old dog Pekingese due to senior disease. Your pup will be treated like ours and is allowed on the furniture. My house will be a loving home for your dog! Your pet will be in a safe, loving, comfortable environment while you're away. You are welcome to contact me if you have any question. Looking forward to spending some time with your pet.

Free Pick-up and Drop-off in Staten Island (3 nights or more dog boarding), Bay Ridge and Bensonhurst (5 nights or more dog boarding). All other area may be available upon request. Please feel free to ask about Pick-up and Drop-off Service.

IMPORTANT NOTES:
** Drop-off/Pickup hours: 7am-11pm **
Please be clear on drop off and pick up time.

Due to high volume, We do not hold tentative dates. You're welcome to text us to check availability, but **you must make a reservation through this DogVacay page to secure a booking for your dog.** All booking are on first-come, first-served basis.

3) Pictures / Updates - You will be receiving pictures and videos of your dog during the stay. Updates/Pictures will be sent directly to your phone for your peace of mind, in regards to your doggy's behavior, eating and potty situation.

I can't say enough about Ka and her husband. I never left my dogs before but now found myself needing someone to watch my two little ones. One of my dogs has a medical problem and I was afraid to leave her, but Ka and Jeff took such good care of them both. I received many videos and pictures of my two dogs. I found myself being worry free for the weekend, I will definitely use them again. They are caring people and made my dogs feel right at home.

Ka is wonderful! My Emma was so well cared for. I was totally at ease during Emma's vacay. Ka sent many videos and pics to let me know how she was doing. I have already rebooked her for another vacay. Thanks Ka!
Ka and Jeff were great hosts. They took excellent care of our two dogs and made us feel at ease... we received tons of photos and videos of our dogs while we were gone. We highly recommend them and we'll definitely be using them again :)

Thank you so much Ka and Jeff!

We were very nervous about leaving our new puppy, but Ka put us at ease. Izzy had a great time vacaying and my family and I had a great vacation knowing our new baby was well taken care of. Ka sent lots of pictures and videos to keep us updated. Will definitely be using her again in the future.

I enjoyed getting photos/videos of the dogs.
Ka was so pleasant to deal with! It was the first time I'd left my boys with a 'stranger', and Ka made me very comfortable. I even got pictures! I'm going on a vacation soon, and I hope Ka can take care of my dogs again.
I will definitely be using Ka for future boarding. She was great with keeping me up to date on how my dog was doing. She sent lots of photos and videos (which i loved! )
We were on vacay in NY and were scared to leave our dog with anyone because she is very hyper.Ka was great she send us pictures every couple of hours and it seemed our Amy had a great time.Definetly would choose her again .!
During the weekend our dogs were with Ka, our family felt very at ease because we were updated with constant pictures and videos of the dogs eating, walking, and interacting with other dogs. When we picked our dogs up, they seemed relaxed and well taken care of. I would recommend Ka to anyone looking for a dog sitter. If our family is ever out of town again, we will definitely use Ka's service again!!!!!!

This is the first time someone other then a family member has watched Cujo and I couldn't have made a better choice. He was well taken care of and Ka took care of him like he was part of her family. Will definitely be booking again and I strongly recommend Ka and her husband Jeff.

Ka and her husband were great with Toby. They send us video and picture updates, which not only gave us a piece of mind but also reassured that Toby wad having a good time. He came home very cheerful, which was an indicator that he was well taken care of during his stay with Ka.

Ka was great. Received daily videos and pic of my dog. Definitely recommend her and will be using her again.
Ka was wonderful! I will only go on vacation when she is available because she put our minds and hearts at ease with her care of our dog♥️
I want to take this opportunity to thank Ka for taking such good care of Sparky while we were away during the Memorial Weekend.

At first, I was a little hesitant, but after all the pictures/videos she sent, puts me at ease. For years I have been looking for a pet sitter and none of them met our expectation. We ended up boarding him at kennels. What I don't like about it is that, is that they cage him all day and take him out to pee/poop and then back in the cage. When it is time for me to pick him up he would weigh lighter then when I dropped him off. He was not happy at all.

I came across Dogvacay and decided to give it a try. We've met Ka first prior to having him stay over. She was very pleasant with sparky and very responsive to any communication. You don't really find a lot of people who has a lot passion for dogs like Ka, Ka and her husband are amazing people. They care for our dogs like their own. Sparky had so much fun that when we got home he was knocked out. That is a good sign. Keep up the good work and we will definitely be back again.

I was never so nervous about leaving my Wally before but that's because he's deaf . I was afraid he would be heartbroken. Needless to say he was taken care of just perfect.NOW... I was never so relieved, he had a great time he was happy when he came home . He misses being with the few other dogs . He was playing and interacting . The pictures and videos gave me such peace of mind . I'm going to be booking with Ka again in the near future . Wally had a great vacay with DogVacay.. THANK YOU . Maria,John and Wally ??.

Ka and her husband are very sweet and made me at ease when watching my little guy. They sent photos and video every day which I loved. I would definitely book them again!
I left Chiquita with ka due to last minute travel. This was chiquita's first time away from us so we were very nervous. However Ka put us at ease by sending us pictures and videos updates. She took detailed notes of chiquita's schedule and needs and followed it to the point. Ka will be the only sitter I trust with Chiquita

Han and Chewie loved the stay. Ka sent a lot of pictures and I was so relieved there were well cared for. I was afraid they did not want to come home. Thank you Ka. You are the best!
I dropped off my dog at Ka's for a 7 nights stay. It was the first time using a dog sitter, so I was a little apprehensive. Starting with the Meet and Greet, my dog and I felt very comfortable with Ka and her Pekinese Mickey. Generally, my dog is semi-aggresive, but to my surprse, not one bark or growl from the minute she walked into her house to meet Ka and Mickey. I received text and video updates throughout the stay. Received 88 pics and 29 videos, along with dozens of text and picture messages. I never thought I be so happy to see videos of my dog eating, sleeping, playing, peeing and even pooping! Took excellent care of my dog, and made us feel at ease. The constant updates made us feel our dog was with us throughout our vacation. I would definitely recommend Ka to anyone, and would definitely use her again.

Ka and her husband were simply wonderful.
We left our two dogs, one who is completely blind, unto their care and they were nothing but supportive, helpful and caring from the very onset till the end.

They: met with us before the actual boarding and walked us through the entire process (as it was the first time we ever boarded our dogs); sent us regular multimedia messages to keep us informed about their well-being; picked up and dropped off our two dogs; followed-up on our dogs after their stay was over; and were always on-hand whenever we had any questions or concerns.

Thank you Ka and husband for making this experience so comfortable and pleasurable.
