About Kerrie

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome to Our Furry Home!

I'm an animal and nature lover that would love to have the privilege of sitting your beloved pet. I have been pet sitting for family and friends for years.
My husband, our two kids and I love our two furry buddies. I am a stay at home mom. I am deaf and my primary form of communication is ASL (American Sign Language). I can lip read well and with text messaging, I am always available to communicate with. I have two little dogs, Jazzy and Lola. They know some basic sign language; for example, sit/stay, stand, roll, give me your paw, good girl, let's go outside, and let's go home.

My dogs do not have any issues with (pet) sizes; they accept any size. My dogs are very quiet and easy to get along with. They tend to stay inside when it's hot and humid. I take them for a walk in the early mornings and later in the evenings. During the day, I let my dogs go in the backyard. I have a large secure fenced backyard. My dogs are allowed to run around freely until I know that they are ready to go inside, especially if it is too hot for them. My dogs are very clean; I bathe my dogs frequently.

We have a nice and friendly neighborhood with many trees and lovely sidewalks to take dogs for a safe walk. Your furry would love it!

****it would take approx. within two hours to reply you so please patience**** Smile

Please schedule a meet and greet for all first time dog guests. I kindly request that your dog be clean and free of fleas and ticks. If your dog is friendly, housebroken, up-to-date on all immunizations and flea/tick/heartworm treatments, is spayed/neutered and not aggressive-- then they are welcome here!

If you have MORE THAN ONE dog...NEGOTIABLE IS open!

I am patient and loving with shy and/or anxious dogs.

During Day Care- 7 hrs is $25
fee (for example: 8:00 am until 3:00 pm)
Overnight Care- when you choose to drop your dog in the early evening at our home to sleep over and then pick up by mid morning that would be $30. Extra tips would greatly appreciate if you dog stays with us until late evening/or drop off early morning.

Boarding is overnight-if you Drop off your pup early morning or early noon...instead early evening. Pick up your pup next day by noon. Otherwise there will be additional fee. I would greatly appreciate that.
Thank you, Kerrie

Kerrie was great with our dogs, her and her family were kind and open to our two playful pups.
Kerrie took excellent care of our larger dog and was very welcoming and kind, would definitely consider her again if we are in the area again.
Kerrie was awesome taking care of my spoiled little Pomeranian, Kino. I was more nervous because this was the first time he ever stayed with someone other than a family member. When we did the meet and greet Kino was allowed to roam around and get to know the house and large yard, and interact with her own dogs and kitty. After a while there, I felt very comfortable he would do well with her. The stay went excellent I think, from the pictures. Kino was excited to come home, but I would let Kerrie take care of my boy any time.
Kerrie and her family clearly love dogs, and I know my baby was well cared for. He was there on a very busy holiday time, and while there were too many dogs there for my older dog, everyone seemed to get along great and they were all tails-wagging. I should have asked in advance how many dogs would be there. But Kerrie understood my dog needed more alone time, and took him into her room in the evenings to give him the quiet space he needed. She clearly enjoys her dog sitting, and truly cares about the dogs we entrust to her care.
And just in case anyone is worried about the hearing issue, it's just not an issue. Communication was great, in person and while I was away. I got regular updates, including videos!
Winston was a happy camper staying with Kerrie! He made lots of new friends and got to play and play and play! I think he is actually sad to be home after having so much fun for 3 days!
Really great experience. Dogs are super happy
Kerrie is a very pleasant lady who clearly loves what she does!
Stinky LOVES kerrie's house. I'm so glad that I found her! I highly recommend using Kerrie!
I would highly recommend Kerrie to anyone who is looking for a kind and loving environment for their pets. She has a lovely home with a large, fenced in yard where my dogs can run free. She even has extra beds and dog bowls so I didn't have to bring anything except their dog food. My dogs were safe and happy which means the world to me. Kerrie definitely deserves a 5 star rating in my book!
It was the first time leaving our little paw member of the family, Missy. I was very nervous. Missy did great with Kerrie. We were thankful that Missy wanted to come home after being spoiled. I strongly recommend Kerrie as a pet sitter with a 5 star rating.
Kerrie's home provides the perfect vacay for our big fur baby. There are kids and pups and a big back yard to play in and a comfy place to hang with the family. Kerrie sent cute pics while we were away so we always felt confident that he was in a safe loving environment and having fun.
We never had any peaceful sleep when boarding Jasmine like this time with Kerrie. 100% confident.
Kerrie was phenomenal and my english bully had a wonderful time. She kept sending pictures and it definitely kept us happy! Will use again when needing overnight stays.
Kerrie responded quickly to our last minute request to take care of our chocolate lab "Mocha". She was very pleasant to deal with and provided various updates and photos to us. Made us feel comfortable. Would definitely recommend her services.
Kerrie is a wonderful dog-sitter! She and her family are very welcoming, warm, patient and kind with our family's dog, Greyson. It's great to have someone we trust available to take care of him the next time we go out of town. Thank you Kerrie and family!
Annie enjoyed being with the kids Kerrie was very accommodating
Kerrie took care of our 18 month old Goldendoodle , Sadie, for 5 nights recently and we could not have been more pleased with the care and attention she received while at Kerrie's home. Sadie loves kids and Kerrie's kids were very good with her high energy and constant need for belly rubs. While away, we received lots of pics of Sadie enjoying herself. Kerrie's backyard and screened porch area were perfect for lots of playing or just resting. We will definitely use Kerrie again. So glad to have found her.
Kerrie did an excellent job making my dog feel comfortable and right at home! I would definitely recommend her services and will be using them again myself in the near future. Thanks treating my dog like one of your own Kerrie!
Kerrie's house was perfect for my dog. Stinky (my baby) really loved Kerrie and her house. She has a great backyard to play in and plenty of space indoors. I would definitely recommend Kerrie!
