Sharon and K9 connection did a great job with Izzy. It was our first time leaving Izzy with anyone but we received picture updates while we were away. Will definitely take Izzy back for future trips.
They took excellent care is Zak, as always. Definitely would recommend for anyone looking to board their dog.
We are returning customers. Sharon and her staff always seem to love having our puppy, Maimxus there. Maximus is always happy and exhausted when we pick him up! I do wish we received updates during his visit, but he seems like he's had a great time on doggy vacay. Sharon is easy going and seems to love the pups! We will definitely be back!

Tim and Sharon were excellent hosts, with a wonderful 1/2-acre dog playland in their backyard, divided into 11(?) different areas. It was a dream for our two 3yo beagles. They even sent me pics of my dogs playing. :) Not looking to travel again soon, but I'll definitely ask Tim and Sharon to host them again! Thanks guys!

My pup "Cash" always seems to be happy and exhausted when I pick him up. Sharon sent me pics of my pup after I emailed her that I was missing him. My experience has been nothing but positive.
Many of the places we had taken Ryder before did not have an outside play area. And we liked the fact that the dogs are given lots of supervised exercise. Ryder came home tired, so we knew he had a full day workout!
My four legged baby has stayed with Sharon several times and loves it! And I loved that she comes home tired because sh has made friends and played a lot! We refuse to send her anywhere else!
We were very pleased with our dogs stay and our dogs seemed much more comfortable than they have been in traditional boarding.
The surroundings were clean and dogs well managed!
This was our first experience here, but she seemed to love it and was worn out when she came home. We will be back again for sure!
Overall, our experience was good. Tim and Sharon were nice, and the tell-tale sign that it was a good experience is that after two weeks in their care, our dog was happy and seemed to have no adjustment to being home like he's had when boarded at the Vet. After a stay at the vet it seems to take him a while to readjust and begin to act normal. With Tim and Sharon this was not an issue. The dog I brought home was happy and, while excited to see us and be home, did not give off the vibe that he was stressed by his time away from us.

Sharon and Tim are always there for us, and Jake & Roxie have a nice time with them. If it weren't for them I don't know how I'd manage to get away to see my mother for the holidays.
As usual my dog came home from "camp"'exhausted and happy. Sharon and Tim take care of Fred like he is their very own.
This is truly Bella home away from home. She loves going to stay there.
Bella really enjoyed her self. She loved playing with the other dogs. Next time I go away I can be more relaxed knowing she's being well taken care of.
Sharon and Tim were wonderful with Sunshine as she is timid and afraid of everything. They were patient and made me feel comfortable and confident that she would do fine there. Sunshine loved it and was worn out when we brought her home. Thank you Sharon and we will definitely use K9 connection in the future!

Our puppy Ariel and in-laws' older dog Callie were boarded just recently at K9 Connection and had a great time. Ariel played with various dogs all day. She's gained confidence again and now plays with more than 1 dog at a time. We got couple of pictures from Sharon while we were on vacation and updates about their stay. Ariel is back to a great shape losing a pound or two after the winter now. Thank you Sharon and Tim for taking a good care of our doggies while we were gone.

Tim and Sharon are outstanding pet sitters. Fred, my 9 month old Puggle, had friends to play with right away. I felt like he was in a safe environment. He smiled all the way home!
I will start with the meet and greet. Our husky Trigger loved Sharon from the start! Once we saw K9 Connection and found out Sharon and Tim had a husky as well we knew it was the perfect fit. Sharon sent me pics of Trigger while on his vacay and he looked like he was having a blast! My fiancé and I will be repeat customers for sure. I didnt worry at all our whole vacation because I knew our pup was in great hands.To top it off when we brought Trigger home he was pooped! And hes been calm all day. I think he misses Sadie... So we'll have to bring him back soon!

Sharon & Tim were very accommodating for us and we're sure Hootie & Boo had a good time while they were there! Their home is amazing - specifically built out to accommodate fur babies, with a ginormous back yard sectioned off to ensure every visitor gets plenty of time outside without worries of negative interactions with other pups. I'm sure Hootie is excitedly looking forward to staying with Sharon & Tim again; Boo's more of a homebody and prefers the company of family only but Sharon made sure Boo's fears were dispelled as quickly as possible!

Best place ever for big dogs!
I originally came in contact with Sharon after I had left my dogs with another sitter from the site and was notified that she was having 'trouble' with my dogs. I spoke with Sharon throughout the process and she really helped ease my worries and stress during the situation. When I picked my dogs up they seemed very happy and slept for days afterward. I took them again just for one night when I had to go out of town, and the result was the same…happy pups that were perfectly worn out. I will continue to use Sharon & Tim and would recommend them to anyone.

Highly recommend Sharon & Tim to anyone looking for a place to board their dog! The person who usually watched Zak moved out of state so we had to find someone new, a daunting task, From the initial meet & greet we knew we found the perfect place. They took us on a tour of the entire place and stopped to pet and love on each dog we passed. The "kennel" and play areas were very clean. There is a large outdoor play yard with all kinds of toys and even an inside room in case the weather is bad. S & T were very friendly and made sure they knew exactly the care Zak needed (meal times, medication). Will be using them again and have no reservations about recommending them to anyone. You can tell they really love dogs!

Another good experience, thanks.
I would be very comfortable recommending Sharon and Tim to other dog lovers. Jake and Roxie warmed to them right away. When I picked J & R up after the stay, both were in a relaxed, confident mood. Tails wagging, happy pups. That's what I love to see.

Best place ever! They treated Maximus like family. Maximus came home and slept for days. Highly recommend them to any big dog owners!
Our dogs loved their stay at Sharon and Tim's. They told us it was their best "camping" trip ever! We booked another stay that day. Thanks Sharon and Tim!
We will be back!
K9 Connection was awesome! Gambit had an amazing time! Would definitely go back!!!
My sweet little puppy Lola had a great time at Tim and Sharon's. They treated her like their own pet giving her oodles of attention. I know she had plenty of playtime because she was exhausted! It was a perfect place to take my almost 6 old puppy! I highly recommend them and I know when I need a dog sitter again I will be going back!

First time our dog has stayed with anyone besides friends and family. The meet and greet really made us feel great about leaving our dog with them. We really like that he could play a lot, both outdoors and indoors. It was the 1st time I didn't worry about the dog while we were away, and was able to enjoy being away knowing he was in good hands. We know that our dog was taken care of well and will definitely use them again!

Great experience , dog was happy he was able to play with others.
We felt at ease on vacation and had full confidence that our 2 dogs would be well taken care of. Naturally both were excited to come home but we could tell they received the best care possible. Louie our 9 month Carin Terrier was exhausted when he got home, but he got to run an play to hiis hearts content. Highly recommend Sharon and Tim.

We are stuck in the Bahamas because of Hurricane Sandy! Sharon and Tim have been great corresponding with us through e-mail only. They're going to continue to take care of my puppy without worry. And for $23 a day, that peace of mind is wonderful :) We've used them a few times now and have NO COMPLAINTS. Sammie loves playing and staying there!
