About Heather

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Don't want your small (30 lbs or less) NON-SHEDDING companion dog to be boarded in a kennel spending time all alone while you are on vacation? This is the perfect solution! They live with us as our pet until you return home. (We can take ONLY NON SHEDDING DOGS due to dog allergies and asthma in our family.)

I work as a substitute teacher during the school year and am off work during school breaks and all summer. My husband works from home. We have been caring for non shedding dogs in our home for the past 11 years.

We have a fenced in back yard (rail fence with wire) and dogs are taken outside as often as needed for potty breaks/exercise/play time outdoors. Dogs (except for puppies which are charged a higher rate due to their care requirements) must be potty trained to go potty outdoors only (no potty pads indoors) and must be young kid friendly but are always supervised when with our children. Dogs must be current on Rabies vaccination and be current on a monthly flea preventive in order to board with us.

We will be happy to administer any medication needed and can follow your dog's special diet. We will also comfort your pet during scary times like thunderstorms or fireworks. At night boarding dogs sleep in our bedroom on a dog bed or on the floor and during the day dogs are given free range of the lower level of the house (if reliably potty trained and no longer exhibiting puppy chewing, etc).

***The boarding rate for puppies and for dogs which require higher supervision is at a rate of $35 per overnight.***

Thanks Heather for another great vacay for Jared! Always love the pics of my little bed stealer! Thanks for your flexibility!!
Heather is always such a great host and she and her family love my furkid like her own! I am so thankful that she is always so flexible and accommodating with my hectic schedule and often last minute requests. I wouldn't leave Jared with anyone else and feel like he was being cared for as well!!
I am so pleased with my experience with Heather and her family taking such good care of my two maltipoo pups Winston and Milo. This was the first time I had left them with anyone who was not a relative/family and I was not sure how they would do. I was concerned too because Milo was a rescue dog and has some vision issues and is very timid. Heather/family was so considerate and helped Milo to feel comfortable and he adjusted very well . The whole family accommodated their needs and are truly dog lovers and how to interact with your pets.Heather sent numerous updates and pictures so I got to see how at home they certainly made themselves. I definitely recommend using Furkind Boarding to anyone who is considering leaving their pet, they will be very well taken care of and I plan to use them again if I need a place for them to stay.
Once again Bella had a fabulous vacay with Heather and her family. She loves going to stay with them. They have a wonderful fenced yard which she gets to play in and gets lots of love from the family. I know she's is well taken care of while she is there. We always receive pictures and messages about how she is doing daily. Excellent communication. Thank you again! Highly recommend!!
That was my first time with Heather and our experience was wonderful! I was looking for a place where my little shy Bichon could feel comfortable during our vacation. Heather and her family were beyond our expectation! They treated her with so much love! They kept me updated with msgs and sent me pics many times a day, was really comforting to see how Bailey was improving and feeling at home day after day. Thank you Heather! Bailey will come back soon!
We've left our little Maltese Benny with Heather a few times, and it's always a good, safe experience for him. Highly recommended. Thanks, Heather!
Heather is awsome! She is always so accomodating for Jared, even last minute! And I live the fact that her whole family loves Jared! Amazing host and person!
Thank you for another great stay!! And thanks for benign so flexible! Jared loves you guys and so do I!
Heather K. is such a great host! I feel so comfortable leaving Jared with her and her family! I get lots of updates and pics and she loves Jared like her own! And she's always so accommodating!
Heather is a very conscientious caregiver. She followed all our instructions and our doggie had a great time there. Our dog loves children, so she was especially happy to see a playmate there too!
Mimi had her first long stay with Heather and her family, (from June 9th - 15th). We could not be more pleased with the care that Mimi receives. Mimi becomes a part of the family and Heather sends lots of pictures of Mimi and also commentary so that we know exactly how Mimi is doing. A good pet sitter is a treasure and we are so happy to have found Heather and her delightful family!
I always feel great about leaving Jared with Heather and her family! They love him like their own, send pics often and he gets to socialize with other pups! Heather K. is always my 1st choice!
Once again, Bella had an amazing time with Heather and her family! She loves going to visit and enjoys the fenced yard, kids and play time she gets there! Highly recommend bringing your fur baby to her! Thanks again!
Another great vacay for Benny - we got lots of photos, and he came back to us happy, rested, and refreshed. Thanks, Heather!
Love Heather and her family! And so does Jared! I know that he is in the best of hands whenever he stays with Heather!
Always feel good about Jared boarding with Heather. Her family loves him like their own and her kids get so excited when he comes to stay. And from the many pictures she sends, he has a great time with them and the other doggies as well!!
This was the longest I've had to leave Jared, and the daily photo updates and texts from Heather reinforced my comfort level . He had a ball ,as he always does with Heather!! Great vacay!
My dog always has a great time with Heather and she's so great keeping me posted with pictures.
This was our Mimi's second visit with Heather and she is getting to feel more "at home". Heather sent us some very cute pictures of Mimi's visit. Mimi had a great time playing with one of the other guests. We will be setting up another day-care at Heather's for Mimi very soon.
Love Heather!! Always a great trip for Jared. He loves the family and they love him like their own. Sends tons of pictures so I can see what a great time he's having!
Our Mimi had her first daycare experience with Heather and her family. Heather had a great way of introducing Mimi to the family dog and the other little dogs in Heather's care. All the doggie "guests" seemed to get along just fine. We are so happy to have found a wonderful petsitter!
We love Heather! She and the entire family love Jared like one of their own! And he played really well with the other pups so he's learning to be more sociable! See you soon!!
This was my Benny's second stay with Heather, and it was for 8 days. I get a little anxious leaving him, since he is such a little guy, but he received great care, and I got a lot of updates including many photos. Also, she made sure that he was well fed.

I'm glad I found DogVacay, and I highly recommend Heather.

Thanks again, Heather!
This was a great experience for us. My Maltese is very small, so I'm somewhat overprotective of him.

Heather was very welcoming to Benny, and sent pictures and notes every day. That really helped to ease my mind.

She took the time to observe Benny and make sure he ate well, and was comfortable.

Thanks, Heather!

We're booking Benny for a longer stay with Heather in a few weeks, and I'm recommending her to friends.
Jared and I love Heather and her family! They love Jared and get excited when he comes to stay. I get tons of pictures while I'm away and he's learning to socialize with other people and other dogs so it's a win win! We both thank you for a great stay!
I can not say enough about this pet sitter!!! She is everything you would ever want in a sitter . Heather goes above and beyond. Her home is impeccable and your pet becomes their family pet while you are away. Your pet will receive love, security, safety and socialization in a very safe environment. The icing on the cake is she provides you with continuous updates and pictures allowing you to see how well cared for your pet is. I would never go anywhere else after finding her.
Heather and her family were wonderful! We received photos and videos daily of Bella which were great. We also received updates on what she wa doing and how she was adjusting to being there. We have used Heather many times and every single vacay was great! Highly recommended!
Heather is so great with her boarding babies! She not only sends frequent pics and updates, but she is so knowledgeable about dog behavior, so she shares valuable info with the fur moms! I always feel comfortable leaving Jared with her because I know she cares for him like her own!
Heather is very caring. She took detailed notes on my dog, sent me pictures when I was on vacation, and kept me in the loop on how my dog was doing. If you have a small/medium size dog and live near south Charlotte and union county area, I would highly recommend her as your pet host.
I highly recommend Heather!!

My Bichon Frise, Carleton, is a shy dog. Heather is very attentive in getting to know the dog's habits and personality before the stay. She is thorough in reviewing all information about your pet. She sent texts and pictures throughout the weekend and updated me on Carleton and his interactions with her and the other pets. Heather is an animal lover and very caring and professional. She worked hard to put Carleton at ease and assisted with helping Carleton adapt to the different environment.

Carleton had a great time and I am planning to use Heather again when the opportunity arises (and hopefully soon)!
Heather and her family were awesome! She is very thorough and extremely knowledgeable. Jared warmed up to her immediately and she sent me updates and pics throughout the entire visit. He was a happy boy when I picked him up :-)! I will definitely call Heather again on my next overnight trip!
Heather and her son were wonderful!
They made sure that Jax was happy and comfortable and assisted him and adjusting to their home.
Heather kept me apprised of Jax's progress during his stay with texts and pictures.
Jax was happy and I was happy!
Heather was a great host for my dog, Cammie. I loved the reports that shared information including her daily activities, her sleep and eating patterns and all the things that put me at ease about where she was staying while I was away. I picked up a happy girl! Loved the pictures!!! Thanks Heather!
Heather seemed knowledgable about doggie care. She was anxious to meet our needs for our dog.
Heather and her family were wonderful! My puppy Bella loved playing with her kids, running around outside and playing with her dog Andy. I received daily photos and updates with details about how she was eating, sleeping, playing etc.. I could not have asked for more. She was accommodating to our dogs needs and was flexible with drop off and pick up. Highly recommend and I know I will use her again.
We were stuck trying to find someone to watch our dog, as our regular people weren't available, my sister recommended dogvacay to me and I was so happy to find Heather. I felt completely comfortable after meeting her to let my fur baby stay with her. I received daily updates and pictures to let my mind at ease that she was fitting in perfectly. I will definitely use Heather again in the future, she's great!
