About Kristy

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I love dogs. I know that sounds simple. But I do, all kinds. Big, small, grumpy, needy, picky, energetic, snuggly, it doesn't matter. I feel a kinship with them that I don't always feel with people. Understanding their needs, reading their signals, it just comes naturally.

My first dog Nova was a handful, misunderstood by most, she had the biggest combination of problematic dog traits — terrible separation anxiety, protective, energetic, fearful, high strung. I loved her anyway.

She taught me a lot about dogs — to have compassion for their needs and shortcomings, to work through their quires, always keeping in mind that dogs are special beings that deserve all my love and care.

After her loss, my new dog was the polar opposite. A Frenchie with a very calm and accepting nature, Olive lives with myself and my two teenage daughters. We have a very loving, laid-back, simple home in Bala Cynwyd.

Your dog will become part of our family, will go for walks with us. There is a very nice park nearby. Your dog will eat with us in our kitchen. They are welcome to sleep in my bed, or we have several comfy areas set-up. He/she will be welcome to our collection of toys and treats. We have a small enclosed yard and live on a very safe street.

We give Kristy 4 paws up for the Thanksgiving weekend! I appreciated the quick responses with the initial reservation and during the stay. Kristy was an amazing host and we're very thankful to have found a caring, quiet and cozy place for peace of mind when I can't take my pup with me. Truly a vacation for us both.

Kristy was a fantastic host!! She made us feel very comfortable leaving Buddy and sent pictures so we could see how he was doing. We will definitely book Buddy as a repeat guest.
Kristy was super-- so accommodating, even with medication my dog takes and also a later than expected pick up time. Thanks again!!
Kristy was so great with our two dogs. She sent updates and photos during their stay. One of our dogs is not the friendliest but Kristy was patient and just kept sending updates to let us know he was doing okay. I would definitely recommend using her.

Kristy is a terrific dog sitter and takes excellent care of our dog catering to her specific needs. She has taken care of our dog multiple times and we would love to have her do so again in the future.
Kristy was awesome and extremely responsive. My dogs had a great time and I loved the pictures Kristy sent of their stay! She made me comfortable leaving my dogs for several days. I will definitely use Kristy again, which my dogs will also like :)
Kristy was a terrific host of our dog. She was very flexible and provided frequent updates and pictures. She walked our dog often as well. Great experience.
