About Kim & Chip

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
**Hi Friends, let's have a Meet & Greet first before sending a reservation request. Request a meet up on our host site. Thanks again & woof!**

My hubby Chip and I have been doggy lovers/parents for many years. We have always had friendly, fun loving doggy kids who are well socialized. We both work part time from home, so there is usually someone home hanging with the home dogs.
Our dog boys Reno & Bailey are looking forward to hosting new friends of any size who are friendly and love to have fun! Of course older, not so active dog pals are welcome too and will receive TLC and lots of love. We will go for walks or as you desire, on a nearby walking trail that is well groomed and landscaped. We are located in a quiet horse country neighborhood with lots of space!
Our front and back yards are large and fully fenced, plenty of room for dog play, ball play and romping around!
Our home is dog friendly and spacious, allowing plenty of space for your doggy to get comfy. Of course, don't forget the dog bed! In our home pet parents can be assured of the TLC & belly scratches your "kids" will receive.
We offer military and additional pack member discounts, as well as custom quotes to suit.
Holiday rates for all major holidays of the year thru a custom quote.
**Due to past experience pit-bull and aggressive dog parents will have to find other arrangements.
**Please have updated shot records & dogs flea treated. Spay & neutered doggy friends are HIGHLY PREFERRED.
Thanks again & woof!

My Willow had a great two days with Kim and Chip. Tons of room to run and play. She was exhausted at the end of each day. Super appreciative of pictures and updates that were sent!
Our puppy was truly on vacation. We are very happy with the service and will be using Kim and Chip often.Great people and they have 2 adorable dogs , very friendly.
Kim & Chip were very accommodating to our schedule. This was our first experience boarding Annie, our golden retriever rescue. She made me feel at ease when dropping her off. I was very happy to get a few pictures of Annie of her stay. Annie was very happy and tired when we picked her up. I really liked that Annie had a lot of room to roam and burn off energy. I will definitely use their services again.

We brought our 10 year old collie/ golden mix for a long weekend with Kim and Chip. Ollie was treated so wonderfully, and felt totally comfortable inside and outside of their home. They treated Ollie just like their own sweet dogs, Reno and Bailey.
Ollie received a ton of love and made our own trip so much more relaxed knowing Ollie was in great hands. There is no doubt that we will continually bring him back there any time we will be gone for a long day, or another extended leave!

This was our first time using Dog Vacay and I was super nervous. So glad we ended up going with Kim and Chip. They really love dogs and it shows. Our babies were so excited to go to their big property and they were knocked out the entire day after they got home, so I know they had a great time.

Kim was so sweet to them and sent me lots of pictures and filled me in on everything in the two days that she had them. They received plenty of belly scratches, ball-throw, and play with Reno and Bailey. So nice to know that we can go away and leave them in great hands.

Thank you, Kim and Chip! See you soon!

Kim is an amazing dog sitter! I received pictures of my dog throughout his stay and could tell by his demeanor when I picked him up that he was happy and well taken care of. There is plenty of safe space to roam around outside...Kim also took my dog on walks!! I will definitely use her in the future and love that I don't have feel guilty for leaving my dog because I know he is in a good place and getting lots of love and attention! I have tried other boarding places and did not have the same outcome. Thank you again Kim!

Kim and Chip were wonderful in taking care of my "puppy". She had a fabulous time running around their property and meeting new friends. And they also have a very doggie friendly and welcoming home. We'll be taking her back again if the need arises.

I recently left my 1-yr old cattle-dog mix, Ruby, for a week with Kim and Chip while away on business. It was a great experience for both me and my pup. Ruby was very well taken care of and accepted as part of the family. When I picked her up it was clear that she had a great time and was treated to a week of fun play and attention. During the week Kim sent daily texts with photos of Ruby. Very sweet and it went a long way to putting me at ease and allowing me to focus on my travels. Kim and Chip have a great spot for a dog with a large, secure fenced outer yard and a big open home where Ruby was allowed to roam. Their two resident dogs were well-tempered and fun playmates for Ruby too.

I'm grateful that I found such good caretakers for my dog and definitely plan on boarding her with Kim and Chip in the future.

Awesome people, awesome job! Thanks!!
Phillip enjoyed his vacation at Kim & Chip's home soooo much that he didn't want to go home with us lol !! Kim is such a warm and friendly lady that I immediately felt comfortable around her and comfortable to leave my furry baby with her as well. She sent us lots of pictures and great updates while we were away and we knew that he was well taken care of.
Her furry babies, Reno and Bailey, were great friends and played with well with Phillip who has lots of energy to burn as a 7months old puppy.
Kim &Chip's place has great space (fenced safely) for dogs to roam around, a doggie door for easy access and warm in door to rest!
Phillip loves there so much and I know we will definitely going back very soon.
We are so happy we found Kim &Chip on dogvacay!

We were extremely pleased with our dogs' stay with Kim and Chip! Upon our 'meet and greet', we were immediately reassured by their warm and relaxed manner and how well they interacted with our dogs. Their home environment was very dog friendly and their yard was an incredible playground, entirely fenced in with lots of space to roam and explore. We knew immediately we had found a perfect match and so did our dogs! When we dropped them off several days later for their stay, we had no worries that all would go well and our dogs would enjoy their time in Kim and Chip's care. We look forward to many more opportunities for our dogs to 'vacation' with Kim and Chip.

Kim and Chip are awesome. My golden Chester had a blast! Lots of room to run and play. I loved getting pictures daily to see he was ok and having fun. He made great friends with their dog Reno and I hope to cross paths with them all again soon.
I would highly recommend. This was my first experience with DogVacay and I am a fan for sure.

We are SO HAPPY that we found Kim & Chip! After meeting with a couple different hosts and even doing a couple test runs with other hosts we knew within minutes that Kim & Chip were going to be the perfect couple to care for our baby while we are away. We did a test stay to make sure that it was indeed the perfect fit and we could not have been any more pleased! Kim sent us multiple updates so we knew how everything was going and our baby looked so happy! When we picked her up she was one happy tired doggie. As a matter of fact, we are so happy we will now be booking a 15 night stay with her knowing with all our heart that our baby will be well taken care of and will be in great hands during our extended time away from home. Thanks again Kim & Chip!

My girl Rue, 13 mos., had a great time at her vacation home. I was worried as this was her first time away but Kim gave her all the love, exercise, and care she needed. She played well with Kim's two dogs and slept along side them at night. Could not have been more pleased with her stay and will use Kim and Chip again when needed.

Kim was Amazing and absolutely loved our BIG puppy! We worry every time we leave our Great Dane Puppy but felt so at peace with Kim. Rhodes was spoiled rotten and loved Kim & Chip's yard and other two dogs. We received texts and photos of Rhody while we were away! We will definitely have Rhody stay with them next time we leave. Thank You!!!

Kim was an excellent hostess for my little girl. She sent texts and photos almost daily which really warmed my heart! They took long walks at least once a day which was perfect. Pijiu "took to" her two dogs better than any others she's ever been with...even my extended family's pets! Pijiu will probably go back for "play dates" occasionally since the dogs all got along so well.

I am so glad to have found Kim to take care of my dog babies!! I can tell that they really enjoyed their dog vacay at her house. They really made themselves at home and it was truly like their second home. She even texted pictures of them laying on her bed.She sent daily pictures and messages and did a great job of letting me know that they were doing great. She has lots of room for them to run around and be dogs. They could bark or dig all they wanted and it was fine. Kim is such a sweet person and I can see that she is truly a dog lover just like me! I will definitely use her services in the future and I highly recommend her for your next dog vacay..

Look no further for a great host family for your dog.

Kim and Chip provided the best experience for our two dogs while we were away. Our dogs were well cared for and loved. Kim and Chip are very relaxed and easy to talk to. They listened to our concerns about leaving our dogs and assured us they would be treated as one of their own dogs. This helped us relax and enjoy our vacation without the worry of how our dogs were doing. We received emails and pictures of our dogs adventures while they were with Kim and Chip. When we picked up our dogs they seemed content and happy.

Their home has plenty of room to run and play and is very comfortable and roomy. It was great to know our dogs were being loved and with wonderful people and not just stuck in a crate all day. We would highly recommend Kim and Chip to anyone looking for a wonderful place to board their dogs.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Kim and Chip in caring for our two dogs and one being a 4 month old pup! Kim greeted us with a warm welcome and she showed us her entire home to help us feel comfortable and to feel at home. I knew they were the perfect place for my dogs when my dogs felt right at home. My two female dogs got a long really well with her two male dogs, Reno and Baily. They had free access to the home and all the dogs were going in and out of the doggy door. They have a dog friendly home and lives on a 2 acres property. They have a huge place to romp around and on top of this Kim takes the dogs on daily walks. She knew I was a nervous mom about leaving my dogs with her but after talking to her and taking the time to answer all my questions made my decision that much easier to leave my dogs with her. The first morning and the next several days she sent several pictures of my dogs playing, going for walks and even looking for critters in her yard. My dogs had a blast and they were "dog" tired when they got home. We will definitely be using them again in the future! Thank you Kim and Chip for taking care of my four legged children!!!
