About Kimberly

11 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a certified veterinary assistant who is passionate about providing a safe and FUN environment for your dog(s) while you're away. I know how hard it is to leave your dog but my goal is to remove all guilt so you can actually enjoy your vacation! I have cared for dogs of all ages, energy/anxiety levels as well as special needs. I enjoy providing your dog special attention that boarding in a kennel just cannot provide!

I have a large fenced in yard where you pup can play the day away. I also enjoy hiking and quite often take the dogs for a walk together. As for my pets, I currently have one dog, a 2 and 1/2 year old female Chihuahua-mix named Nugget, a bearded dragon named Ozzy and a few ducks, chickens and a pig. Nugget loves playing with furry friends of all sizes although she is a little shy around new people.

I have fostered and pet sat for over 10 years. I’m comfortable giving medications and bathing if requested/needed. I really enjoy teaching basic obedience, tricks and games if you desire your dog to have a little “extra” attention during their stay. Picking up and dropping your dog(s) off at your home may also be arranged.

I have several dogs that are here often and it’s like a second home to them. I love having them here and treat them like they’re my own! Your dog may sleep wherever they are most comfortable. Very often that is in our room and/or on our bed!

All dogs must be vaccinated, spayed/neutered, have flea/tick prevention and dog friendly in order to stay with me. Please do not bring your dog’s bed with you as I have plenty here. I do ask that you bring their food bowl, food, medications, collars and leashes.

You can expect to receive pictures and text messages throughout their stay. Please feel free to contact me for additional questions. I understand the importance of finding a pet sitter that you and your dog can trust. I look forward to hearing from you!

Highly recommended!!! Kim took such good care of Ollie! She is very professional with dog. She also sent us updates throughout Ollie's stay. Most importantly, Kim always keep Ollie entertained! Will def book with Kim again!
My Theo throughly enjoyed his weekend with Kimberly. She sent pictures and videos throughout the weekend for us to see. It was great to be able to relax during our trip knowing he was being so well taken care of. He also made a new friend with Kimberly's dog, which we were also very excited about.

Kimberly is clearly very experienced. One of my dogs is afraid of people, and the other is very high energy, and Kimberly was able to handle both extremes. She also gave me frequent updates so I would know how things were going. I definitely recommend her!

Kim was fantastic! I was very nervous and she was super reassuring. She sent lots of updates and made sure Stella had a great time. I would absolutely recommend Kim and will definitely book with her again! Thank you so much. :)
Thank you! You were great and Marcy had a great time!
We have a senior lab who is arthritic and needs special care getting around. Kimberly did an excellent job while he was in her care. Being in a new environment, our lab was a little reluctant to get into his feeding schedule. Kimberly took her time to get him adjusted with different feeding techniques.

We very satisfied with the services and care given to our dog by Kimberly.

We did not have any issues or concerns leaving our dog in Kimberly's care. She was well trusted and provided daily updates and photos to let us know how our dog was doing. I recommend her. Great experience.
Kim is just the best! We have always taken our 4 legged baby, Harvey on vacation with us, however this year is the first year we can't bring him on our family vacation. My husband and I visited some doggie daycares in the area and decided that would not be a good fit. We researched and found Kim on Dogvacay! The reviews previously left on Kims page were very helpful. Kim just took Harvey for an overnight 'test run' before our vacation in August. He loved Kim and her fur baby Nugget. When he came home the next day, he kept running to the window and door to see if Kim might still be there. Lol. She sent me several updates and reassured me he was doing great. I highly recommend Kim! I'm so thankful for her and we are blessed to have found her!

I've never left my girl with anyone but family and Kim was amazing!! She was so good to my Mabel I couldn't have asked for better care and kept me updated the whole time with pics and texts about how she was doing and all the fun they were having.
Great experience! Kimberly was AWESOME! She was very accommodating and took amazing care of our dog Bella! We will definitely be booking with her again!!!
I can't say enough about the care Kym gave our puppy while staying with her. She went above and beyond our expectations. I would highly recommend Kym if you are looking for someone who knows and loves animals and will give them the same loving care they would get at home. Kym sent us updates including pictures and videos. I was afraid Val wouldn't want to come back home. Will definitely be using Kym for all our dog sitting needs.

Kim was very accommodating, she is warm and very calm and reassuring. She made our 90lb puppy a very happy boy. We will be back!!
One more shout-out to Kym for being flexible and taking care of the dogs for one extra day when our travel plans were delayed at the last minute.

She is a great host, and this is a great place for your dogs to stay. If you're looking for a dog sitter in the area, call Kym first!

We had an absolutely great experience with Kym! Our 2 standard poodles stayed with her for over a week while we traveled for Christmas. We were originally trying to find something near where we live (Ft. Drum), but this was right on the way to the airport, so worked out just as well for us, not far off of I-81.

We met with her a few weeks prior to the stay, and she even offered to watch the pups for a few hours while we went to the mall, to see how they would do with her. The house was very comfortable for them, and they have a nice (huge) wooded lot for them to explore!

Kym sent us messages and pictures every day to let us know how they were doing. We could tell they got all the love and attention they needed and wouldn't have received elsewhere. Plus, she was very willing to accommodate an extra day when our travel plans changed at the last minute.

This will definitely be our pups home-away-from-home any time we travel. Thanks Kym and Kent!

Kym did a wonderful job with my anxious, traumatized 30lb rescue dog! She asked all the right questions when making the booking and was well prepared to handle him. Though he's very sweet with people, he's not always good with other dogs and tends to lunge and bark when surprised. She made sure he felt secure and got him plenty of exercise, and was very gracious and understanding when he DID pounce on her chihuahua out of the blue one day. I would totally recommend using her when you need to go out of town!
