About Kristen

34 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We have a cozy home on a quiet cul de sac in the Royal Oak area of Saanich. We love dogs and specialize in small breeds. Our backyard is fully fenced and we live in close proximity to several large parks with safe walking trails.

Our guests have free run of the house and we generally accept only dogs up to about 25 lbs.

We require an introductory visit. All dogs must have up to date vaccinations.

Thank you for your interest and we look forward to meeting your dogs!

I was very pleased with Kristen herself as a very sincere person. My Lexy took to her very quickly on our first home visit and that made me feel confident that Kristen would be the perfect doggy sitter for Lexy while I go on my own personal vacation.
I've made a good choice with Kristen from my first impression on the app Dog Vacay.

Thanks for being you Kristen. Sincerely, Josee, Lexy and Bella
Kristen was a wonderful host for our puppy! It was clear at the meet-n-greet that GG would be very comfortable with Kristen, which was lovely and reassuring to see. I really appreciated all the photos and updates we received while we were away - a great experience all round!
Kristen was great at accommodating my request to do a sleep over trial before I leave my puppy with her for a full week to make sure it was a good match. Since it seems that it is a good match I will be using Kristen again when I go on vacation :)
Our little dog Daisy stayed with Kristen for three weeks while we were away in Australia. Kristen was quick to respond to all messages and sent us photo updates every few days. She clearly loves dogs and took very good care of our little furbaby. I'll certainly be booking her to look after Daisy in the future. Highly recommended!
It was great to find a sitter close to home and one to whom the pups got along well. The pups were well taken cared and happy. Would definitely not use in the future and reccomend to others.
My dog Rosie had a great time with Kristen for over a week. I can tell she was well looked after. It was important for Rosie to be in a home (as she is a bit of needy lapdog) and not a kennel. Kristen (and her family) provided that for her. Now I know I can go away from time to time and not feel guilty about abandoning Rosie!
Kristen was very quick to respond and could not have been more accommodating to fulfill a pretty last-minute request. She required a meeting with me and my dog before confirming the reservation and, to my mind, asked all of the right questions to confirm that she and my young dog would be a good fit for a few days. That gave me the confidence I needed to leave my best 4-legged friend with someone new for the first time. Kristen kept in touch a couple of times a day and I could tell that Tucker was getting all sorts of exercise and attention. He was totally happy when I picked him up .... and so was I. Thank you, thank you, thank you Kristen.
Thanks again Kristen....Sophie had a ball. She loves you and your folks! We would have no hesitation in using your services again, and will recommend you whenever we get an opportunity.
Sophie came home whacked as usual. She loves her holidays with Kristen!
This was my first experience with leaving "Nova" and "Little Bit" with someone while I went away, therefore my initial separation anxiety was high. Kristen was absolutely wonderful!!!! She made it so easy for me to relax and know they were happy and well cared for as she emailed me updates and pictures. I definitely will be using her service again in the near future and I highly recommend her to anyone that is requiring care for their dog while they are away. Thanks so much, Kristen!!!!
Kristen is a very warm person who seems to have a real affinity for small dogs.

After our first meeting, I felt confident her home would be the right place for us to leave our beloved little ragamuffin.

Sophie came home completely spent, and has spent the better part of the day getting caught up on her sleep (always a good sign!) I would have no hesitation recommending Kristen's care.

Thank you again Kristen!

Great communication before, during and after Taffy's stay. This was Taffy's first stay so I appreciated the pictures showing her happily walking and lounging.
Kristen is a very personable, friendly and caring young lady. She sent photos of our dog throughout the day to show just how well he was treated, which we have no doubt. Would be glad to recommend her.
