About Kelly

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a fun, dog-loving couple who will give your pup love and keep them safe while you are out of town.

We have 2 dogs of our own - a 6 year old Rottweiler/German Shepherd mix who we have raised from a 6 week old puppy, and a 5 year old Pitbull that we rescued from the MDSPCA 4 years ago. They are both very well trained, and love other dogs. If your dog is a cuddler, our pittie girl will snuggle with them all day. If they are full of energy, our rottie boy will run laps around the big fenced in yard all day.

We have been dog sitting for about 10 years and been on DogVacay for about 3 years. We have had to leave our dogs with other people while we have been out of town, and understand the stress of having you put your babies in someone else's care. Our goal is to minimize that as much as possible. We are a cat and kid-free home, so as long as your dog gets along with other dogs, we should be just fine.

Our dogs are crated at night and when we're not home, so there won't be any unsupervised interaction. I prefer to have dogs that are crate-trained (just to minimize any risk of issues while we're at work) but if they are older and not destructive, I'm ok with that. We do have an extra crate, so you don't have to bring yours unless you prefer to do so. Our house is very dog friendly - no stairs, plenty of comfy places to sleep, and not much they can get into. They will get lots of play time outside, and lots of snuggle time inside.

I am also available to dog sit in your house, but I would not be spending the night. I can come by and feed and let dogs out a few times a day, and give them some play time and cuddle time. I will also collect mail and water plants, if necessary.

Kelly did an excellent job taking care of our baby, Bella. I also appreciated Kelly's flexibility with pick up and drop off times. I would gladly use her as a pet sitter in the future.
What an awesome dog-loving home! My dog has stayed with Kelly 4 times now and I know she is in good hands. They have 2 friendly dogs & a huge fenced in back yard with plenty of running space!
Kelly was wonderful with our little boy. I was apprehensive because this was his first overnight without us. No need to worry, She sent us pics and updates on him. He came home happy and tired, I would recommend Kelly without hesitation!
My new go-to dog sitter!
We know Penny had fun because she was EXHAUSTED when she came home. Kelly was great and sent updates!
This was our first stay with Kelly, and she was great. My dog had an issue with his eye that started just days before his stay that required medicine and Kelly was very helpful and accommodating to make sure he got it when needed. She really helped me out in a jam and Guinness came home happy, and completely worn out. It felt good to get a couple pictures of him while I was out to ease my mind that he adjusted and settled in well. I would absolutely recommend Kelly to any other dog owners looking for someone to trust!
Kelly was great. The dogs came back happy and tired. Took away a star just because she didn't follow through on sending pictures, but other than that we were very happy and would definitely recommend to others!
I took my pup to Kelly for two weeks and it was a great experience. It's never easy to leave your dog with someone but Kelly's a genuine dog lover so I felt very comfortable knowing Stella was in good hands. I would definitely recommend Kelly and will use her again!
As usual, the dogs loved being with Kelly - they came home exhausted from playing :)
Kelly was great. She responded quickly when we first contacted her regarding a place for our dog over a weekend. Every time we went over (for the meet and great, drop off and pick up), Kelly was ready for us. She was great with our dog who came back absolutely exhausted from his weekend of fun. Next time we need a dog sitter, we will definitely use Kelly, assuming schedules match.
Our dog is a rescue dog and usually is really anxious when we leave her for vacations. This time, she had no problem. Kelly was very responsive to my messages, and her prices are very reasonable. She made our dog feel loved in our absence. We will definitely use her again in th future.
Kelly was just wonderful, and our shy little girl (American Bulldog) had a great time while we were away. Recommend!
Kelly took great care of our dogs - her two dogs loved Jack and Raisin - they were so tired when they came home! I will definitely use her again!
Kelly and her husband were fantastic with Moose. He loved playing with her two dogs and every picture I got was of him exhausted from playing all day. She was always quick to get back to any questions I had and even got him more food when what I provided ran out. I would definitely use Kelly again on my next vacation.
Kelly was professional, friendly, warm, and welcoming to my pup and I. She sent us pictures of his progress during the stay and kept us up to date on how he was doing. Great dogsitter!
