About Kimberly

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I own three dogs and foster for different rescue groups. I am very active with my dogs (performance sports, therapy dog work, etc.). I also am experienced with special needs dogs. Two of my dogs are deaf and one is deaf/blind. I also have experience with paralyzed/wheelchair dogs.

I have agility and flyball equipment, a doggie pool and dog water toys, and interactive dog puzzles and games for any visiting pups to play with.

I have a Dog Room with crates and beds and a nice sized fenced in backyard for playtime.

I do work full-time as a teacher. Care is provided for the dogs at lunchtime while I am at work. Other than going to work, I am usually home and never leave the house for more than a couple of hours at a time.

I cannot accept females in heat. Please let me know if your female dog is intact (not spayed). Thank you!

Please also be aware that I do NOT accept any reservations without a SPECIFIC drop-off and pick-up time. This is done out of a courtesy to you, the client. This is so you are not charged for any reservations if I cannot accept the reservation or cannot be home at your desired drop-off or pick-up time. This is also done so that I can ensure any reservations I accept I can definitely be home and am expecting you to drop-off or pick-up your dog at a pre-arranged time. Any dog being dropped off or picked up MUST have a confirmed drop-off or pick-up time. Thank you!

Please also be aware that requesting phone communication may delay setting up reservations. My access to reliable phone service is extremely limited, especially at night and on the weekends. The best, easiest, and quickest way to contact me is via the DogVacay site. I am also always available via text and email. Thank you!

I offer discounts for:
-multiple pets from the same household boarding together
-repeat customers (starting with your third booking)
-long-term boarding (more than one week)
-referrals (both for you and the person whom you refer who makes a reservation)

Please ask for a custom quote if you would like any of these discounts!

Kimberly is great! Our baby stayed for a whole weekend. She texted us on how he was doing and pictures of him everyday. He was very happy and us too!
Puku has such a great time with Kimberley and she takes really good care of her whenever she goes. Thanks KImberley!
Kimberly has watched Jake, my German shepherd, on many occasions. He loves staying with her and her dogs. He always comes home relaxed, like he never left. Kimberly has also been very gracious in watching Jake on short notice. I highly recommend her.
Wonderful as always!
Kimberly is always fantastic with my pups. I am blessed that I found her.
Horrible experience. Kimberly is very nice but I left two dogs with her for a week ($770) and one came back with a bite on his ear that required surgery. Stitches and 10 drains are still in place three weeks out. I expected better supervision. I would have expected to have been told about the injury. When I asked about it, she said she had no idea how it happened and petted the dog every day (even told me she played with his ears every day) and never saw the injured ear.
Kim was an outstanding caretaker to our pup, Kitsune. She was sure to send photos of him daily and even went out of her way to send them via email since for some reason I couldn't view them on this site. She was extremely responsive and very friendly. I look forward to having Kitsune under her care again. Thanks Kim!!
Kimberly was amazing! my dog Lulu is usually very anxious but she had a great time with Kimberley and her dogs. She was also exhausted from playing all the time! We would highly recommend her and we are definitely coming back!
Our puppy had a great time at Kimberly's house, he came back home happy and health. Thank you, Kimberly.
This was my first experience with DogVacay. Kimberly was wonderful and provided me with text updates. Will definitely use Kim's services again! Thank you!
Bode had a great vacay with Kimberly and her dog family. He had so much fun and was kept busy so he slept most of the next day. Kimberly sent photos and video to assure us that he was fine. Thank you for being flexible and taking good care of our guy!
Kimberly is friendly, professional, and considerate. She also responds quickly to messages. My dog has a bad hind leg, and Kimberly was easily able to accommodate this special need. I would not hesitate to have her dogsit again.
Kim was great!!!! My 1 year old dog can be a pain in the butt but Kim handled her perfectly. The daily photos/videos are always nice too :)
Kimbery is such a sweetheart. She always takes care of my pups with loving care.
This was the second times boarding for my German Shepard, Chloe, with Kimberly. When I turned at the corner of Kimberly's house Chloe already recognized her street and showed how excited she was. Chloe was eager to go into her house and greeted Kimberly as well as all of her dogs.
Kimberly sent me a text and picture everyday which was great.
I would love to request Kimberly for Chloe in the future again. Thank you, Kimberly.
Kimberly is the best! She is so patient with my dog who is very old and not in great shape. Her compassion for animals is quite evident!
Kimbery is the greatest!!! She is patient and kind with my three pups.
Kimberly did amazing job with my dog, Chloe. She sent text messages everyday to let me know how Chloe was doing and some pictures of her and Kimberly's dogs together.
Very happy with the care Zoey received at Kimberly's
My 1 year old dog loves visits with Kimberly and comes home exhausted from all the fun he had with her dogs!
Kimberly was great! Eden had lots of fun playing with the other pups and came home happy and tired! She was very flexible with us on timing and sent a cute video of Eden playing. We will definitely book with her again the next time we are in town!
This was our first experience with Dog Vacay, and we'll definitely do it again. I don't know how we lived without Dog Vacay before! :)
Kimberly was amazing, very communicative and helpful. She even brought our dog by car to Port Jefferson. It worked for everyone, and allowed us to save some time. She sent us pictures during the day, and was easy to reach.
Thank you much!
Our pup loved her stay and came home exhausted from all the play time. We will definitely be using Kimberly again!
Kimberley was great! Her dog-friendly house and resident pups were a great match for my dog's energy level. He came back from the weekend completely tuckered out. Kim sent plenty of photos of the dogs playing. I will definitely be using her services again!
Kimberly is fantastic! We met for a meet-n-greet back in February, and I used her for the first time this past weekend. I felt extremely comfortable leaving my 1.5 year old Siberian Husky with her. She has a great fenced in back yard and her house is very dog-friendly. She has several of her own dogs, so Ghost had plenty of company. I'll definitely be using Kimberly again. She is so sweet!
Kimberly is super friendly and absolutely loves dogs. She treated our Rocky like one of her own. She sent photo updates throughout the day and was very accommodating to our schedule ! We have already booked 2 more stays with her ! A+
Kimberly was super nice. We were able to get in with two of our dogs last minute, and at a discount! She said our pups were easy going and she sent us regular updates with pictures during our day trip. The reason I give only three stars is because one pup ended up sick, vomiting the whole next day :/ However, I know he can still be anxious and he definitely scarfed down his food early the next morning. Kim said he didn't go near his food all day and our other dog (who can also be anxious but is much older) was absolutely fine.
Kimberly is a wonderful pet sitter. I knew my pups were in great hands with her. I would most definitely recommend her to anyone.
Kimberly has my hard earned trust to care for my dogs Lucie and Roscoe anytime! I worried like crazy about leaving my senior beagle who requires medications with anyone, but I just got him home and he is looking and acting GREAT and happy! I got daily pics from Kimberly showing the good time my dogs were having. She is a very experienced pet owner. If you have a dog with special needs, you don't need to hesitate in trusting Kimberly!
Very caring and accommodating host. My dog's special geriatric, orthopedic, nutritional and medical needs were not an issue. Highly recommended host.
Kimberly was awesome with watching my pups. I highly recommend her. And I will actually be calling her in the near future for more dog sitting. Thanks so much Kimberly, sincerely, Ariana
Kimberly was great! She was so flexible with drop off and pick up time. She has a great fenced in yard for the dogs to play and her entire home is very dog friendly. She even sent us pictures of Roosevelt while we were away to show how much fun he was having! Kimberly is highly recommended. Thanks!!
Our dogs seemed as happy as can be when we picked them up. Kimberly was right on the ball with communications and with photos. We loved meeting all her dogs. She has to be a wonderful person and pet lover to care for them as she does. We would return to her again without a second thought.
Kimberly took great care of Lucie while we were away for four days. She sent us picture updates, which were nice to see. We did not worry about Lucie once while we were away. She returned home looking very well cared for. We definitely would recommend letting your dog stay with her! She was very flexible with our pick-up and drop-off times and was very easy to work with.

Thanks, Kimberly, for taking such great care of Lucie for us!
Kimberly was great! Her house has a fantastic set up for all type of dogs.
