About Kristy

41 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have loved dogs since I was young and brought home every stray I could find. Now that I'm grown I love giving other people's dogs a safe, happy environment so their owners can do what they need to do without worries. I am a life-long non-smoker, home most of the time, live in a lovely, dog-friendly neighborhood 1/2 block from Colonial Park, the backyard is fenced with lawn, shade and covered patio.

I know how important flexibility is and strive to do whatever I can to make your boarding experience stress free.

My dog is uncharacteristically (for a border collie mix) calm and laid back. He loves to chase a ball and doesn't mind if other dogs do too, but he does not play with other dogs. If your dog is ok with that, it should be a good match and I always schedule a meet-n-greet to be sure it is.

Kristy is a great caregiver, 5 Stars!
Kristy is wonderful! Always responsive, friendly, and great with our Frenchie.
Kristy was a great dog sitter. She was responsive by email and it was easy to arrange a meet up. She sent updates during the stay that we enjoyed. We will definitely use her during our next vacation.
Kristy was great! We had our original boarding arrangements fall through at the last minute and Kristy was able to set up a meet and greet on extremely short notice. She sent me pictures and updates on how my dog was doing which gave me piece of mind that she was in good hands. Our dog is in her golden years and Kristy was able to handle her bladder control problems like a pro! I definitely recommend her.

Kristy was very accommodating with the timing of the meet-n-greet as well as the last minute overnight scheduling.
5 STARS!!!
Kristy is awesome. Thank you very much.
Kristy is great for both short and long term care. My dog loves staying with her whether it's for a day or a whole week. Thanks!
My dogs were happy and relaxed throughout the stay, thanks to the insistence that we have a rehearsal meeting prior to the stay. Kristy knows dogs very well indeed and was genuinely concerned with the welfare of ours. We couldn't have been happier.
Skippy loves staying with Kristy! He's been there a few times now, and this last visit he ran inside and didn't look back, tail wagging. She is so good to him. He clearly enjoys his stays with her : ) -Laurel
Kristy met us and our dog on very short notice and in the rain! Kristy is calm, kind and patient. I recommend her!
Kristy did an excellent job. My little dog was very happy and content after spending the day with Kristy. Thank!
Ranger was well cared for by Kristy. We did a meet n greet a few days before at the park, where Ranger also met Hannibal, and then yesterday was his first time staying for daycare. Kristy was flexible with hours, as we had a wedding to attend that went into the evening. She sent us a photo during his stay, and he came home happy. I would definitely recommend Kristy, and look forward to using her again.

Great visit again! Kristy took great care of our little Lola for our 20 day vacation! No problems at all! Would definitely recommend.
I want to thank Kristy for her kindness, patience and love in dealing with me and my dog this week. She was wonderful! Asa doesn't adapt to change very well and she was able to provide an environment that Asa was eager to go to every day. Would definitely do it again! THANK YOU!

Kristy was great with Snuffy!
Kristy was wonderful to work with. Our trip was last minute and had some changes along the way. Kristy was very accommodating with everything. My dog was very happy and comfortable at Kirstie's home.
As usual, Skye thinks it is like a vacation for her as well . . . she loves the attention she gets and all of the other dogs that come to visit. We feel totally secure having her with Kristy -- wouldn't think of anyone else to use.
I wish I could give 6 Stars. Kristy is great with dogs and each Vacay for Callie has been better than the last. Can't say enough good things about her.
FANTASTIC ! As ALWAYS, Skye had a great time at Kristy's house, getting all the love and attention she ALWAYS gets there . . . I think she's almost unhappy to see us come back and take her to her real home! Kristy is the best !
5 stars as usual. Kristy is a great caretaker. Great communication and wondrous peace of mind knowing Callie is in good hands.
Kristy is a rock of doggy compassion,

My dog (I'm actually the uncle) loves Kristy more than me and while I have to fight off pangs of jelousy, I feel that says a lot about Kristy's connection with dogs. She also was wonderful in handling a minor doggy emergency recently. . .I highly recommend Kristy for your dog sitting needs.

Kristy means so much to me and my doggy that she's become de facto auntie to Faye the dog.. I really don't know what I would do without this committed, generous person when Im called away for double duty at work. Faye (usually slow to warm up to people) bonded to her instantly. Going to Kristy's is always a big treat for Faye and always reassuring to me..

AWESOME ! There are no sufficient words to express how good she is with our dog and how much love and attention she gives her -- Skye loves to come there when we are away. I am so very thankful for Kristy!
I felt that she was great with my baby and she will be dog sitting for me again very soon.
FANTASTIC -- what a great match! Skye had a great time and almost didn't want to come home. Kristy is wonderful, loving, and so good with dogs. Skye really enjoyed her TLC and looks forward to another stay in the near future.
Kristy was great! Toby came home very happy with his vacay!
Kristy is a wonderful caretaker. She truly loves dogs and I love having such a safe, fun place for Callie to stay when I'm out of town.
Kristy was just a real pleasure to work with. Very accommodating and professional. I just knew as soon as I met her that Leroy would be in very good hands. Highly recommended.
Very easy going, our pug came back very relaxed and mellow, as if we never left! Very happy with Kristy!
Very happy I met Kristy through DogVacay. She is friendly and accommodating, did an awesome job taking care of Callie and made me feel comfortable through each step of the process (first-time boarding). Would highly recommend Kristy to anyone looking for a safe place for their dog to have a great time - I will definitely be using her services again.

Kristy is a very caring dog person. She took good care of Penny and kept us informed or asked us questions when she needed to know anything about our dog.
My job requires me to get a regular pup sitter for Molly, and Kristy is the best. Molly loves going over to her home, and my mind is at ease when I'm at work. I know how much Kristy loves pups, and how happy Molly is under her care.
Kristy is great to work with. She communicates well and made my travel plans easier by arranging pick up and drop off. Kristy goes above and beyond by considering all aspects of the dogvacay. She took great care with my little Faye for a week! I highly recommend Kristy!

This was Lola's second visit with Kristy. She cared for our little Lola for our 20 day vacation. Kristy sent us pictures and written updates as to how she was doing during the stay, which helped to set my mind at ease. Our dog is completely blind so she needs a bit more care and patience of which Kristy provided. I wouldn't hesitate to have her care for Lola again!!

Kristy took great care of our little Lola who is completely blind. We have booked again with her! Thanks Kristy
Yet again Kristy took great care of Molly while I was away. She sent me pictures and updates on how she was doing--my mind was at ease with Molly in Kristy's care.
Molly had so much fun staying with Kristy last weekend! Kristy has so much love for Mols--it's so comforting to know Molly is staying in such a loving, fun home while I'm away. Thank you again Kristy!!!
So sweet and friendly and flexible ! My dog loves going over to Kristy house. She has a calm spirit that is great for animals and stressed out travelers! She gets 2 paws up :)
Awesome dogsitter! Kristy is focused on her dogs and her little dog for the day. Very kind and loving to her doggies. My dog is a tiny one, not the typical for Kristy and she went out on a limb anyway to give it a try to see what would happen. It ended up being a perfect match and Kristy confirmed to me what a super doggie I have (I recently took in the dog so not much feedback yet). My dog had a terrific day, got lots of play and snuggles from Kristy. Plus Kristy taught this new dog mom some good stuff.

Oh my goodness!! This was our first time using this service and wasn't sure what to expect. Kristy did such a great job with Kasha and met our specific needs! I didn't have to worry about my fur baby. :) Will for sure use again.
I needed a last minute reservation and Kristi responded right away. It was nice to meet her and know that my dog was going to be in good hands for the weekend. Sadie came back to me happy and content, it was obvious she had a good time at Kristi's home.

Kristy was amazing! I felt so comfortable leaving Molly in her care for two days. Kristy was very accommodating with drop off and pick up times, and communicated very promptly. She's great!
