About Kimberly

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My home, located in Redwood Shores, is a doggie paradise! Complete with walking trails, lush greenery, and many new dog friends and humans to meet. It is a very safe, low-traffic area with a dog park just down the block. I live in an apartment with a large, fully-enclosed balcony. There's plenty of open space for the dog(s) to play indoors as well. I like to take dogs on frequent walks around the area, they will have plenty of outdoor time while in my care!

I have a Morkie (Maltese/Yorkie) named Jessie, who is incredibly friendly and playful. I haven't met a single dog yet who she hasn't loved. She loves having play time and has always made other dogs feel right at home, playing with dogs of all sizes!

I'm currently in law school and have a very flexible schedule. The majority of my day is spent at home, studying, and I occasionally have an hour or two of class. I take frequent breaks for puppy love - I go on many walks with my pups, play with them indoors (if it's hot I have AC), play outside with doggie toys & friends, have grooming time with dog baths and brushing, etc. Most of my free time is spent with dogs, as they are a huge destresser for me while in school.

I've owned dogs my entire life, and they're always a big part of my family. Raising two litters of Maltese puppies, caring for them from birth until they found their forever homes. These experiences have taught me many skills related to dog first aid, emergency situations, and detection of problems before they arise. Watching for warning signs is a must.

I'm confident that your beloved pup(s) will love it here! My top priority is to treat my visiting pups as they're my own, so they will certainly be part of our family. I look forward to meeting you soon, send me a request!

I always keep my clients totally up to date. You will get daily updates informing you of any activities we did, progress adjusting to a new home, interactions with jessie and us, and anything else cute or exciting. You will also get plenty of photos! You'd be shocked by the number of doggie pics on my phonew.
And my favorite part - , you can keep them com if we must leave the pups at home with our Petcube campaWhenever we leave them unsupervised for a short period, as well as daily from 7pm-8pm, you'll have access to the cam and will 'll be able to talk to them and hear them bark back, play with them using a laser pointer, and more.

able.
(3) Free Overnight Bags!
All of my pups go home with a DogVacay overnight bag, which also will include a customized goodie bag! They will get fun toys, samples of their favorite treats while on vacay, and maybe another surprise or two. Packing the goodie bags with your pup is half the fun - they get so ex

Your pup will get only the best of the best. I have many types of treats that are all very high quality, gluten/grain free, and just plain healthy. I also have various types of food (just in case). Moreover, if your pup gets separation anxiety, I am well prepared. I have various types of calming treats and pheromone spray that I will use for the first day or two. This combination works wonders on some

I have hired Kimberly to watch my dog Ellie 4 different times when I have been out of town and she has been wonderful. She treats Ellie like her own and Ellie adores her. It's nice to have someone trustworthy to take care of Ellie while I'm gone, and I know that she's in good hands with Kim. Kim also makes sure to follow all of my directions completely - whether it comes to feeding, bathing, walking, medication, or cleaning. Ellie usually has trouble when I'm gone and I'm truly surprised that we haven't had any issues while Kim has been taking care of her. Kim's dog, Jessie, probably contributes a lot to that as well. Jessie is such a sweet dog and she does a great job at getting Ellie to actually play with her. They are always excited to see each other. I can't recommend Kim enough, she is an asset to any family!

Kim is GREAT! She is kind, accommodating and loves the dogs for whom she cares. She is acutely aware of the personalities of her boarders and is happy to tell you all about their stay with her. When I picked up Buster, it was as if I had interrupted a really fun "playdate". Thank you, Kim!!

Our dog just had her second stay with Kim and I think she was sad to leave - we will absolutely be coming back! Kimberly is incredibly communicative, professional, and sweet; she'l make any dog feel at home.
Very accommodating and thoughtful. Highly recommended!
This was our first booking with DogVacay. Kimberly was very thorough in helping us through the process. She loves dogs and it shows in how well she took care of Jujube. We would stay with Kimberly again.
Kim was so great, as always. I don't know what I'd do without her! She's in a class of dog sitters of her own--I wouldn't leave my dog anywhere else. I trust her completely to love and care for my dog as if it were her own. Up until now, that level of trust has been near impossible. Moreover, she always does what she says she's going to do.
My dog is always happy there and comes home totally worn out from all the fun they had. Highly recommend!

Kimberly was AMAZING! She was so nice to last minute help us out with our little dog. We needed a sitter for the day and this was our first time using dog vacay and it was such a great experience. Kimberly was quick to communicate with and made our first time with dogvacay the best. She was so sweet and kind with our dog and even gave him cute little treats and a bone. We appreciated the updates throughout the day as well with pictures. Thanks so much Kimberly I would highly recommend her to anyone! And definitely will be using her again in a time of need.

Kim was great with my two Maltese dogs! She was able to administer medicine and deal with a picky eater. She sent updates with lots of photos to make sure I knew how they were doing. Communication was great throughout and she was very flexible re pickup and dropoff. Thank you so much Kim & Sean!

Loved Kim! I'm terrible at planning and she was able to accommodate me super last minute so I really appreciate her speedy response. Bentley had a great time, he loves her morkie too and I'm really happy how well he accommodated to her place. When she took him on a walk and he got super dirty, she even gave him a bath! She's so great because she really treats them like family. I can't wait to use her again!

This was our second visit with Kim and Sean and they were both fantastic, as usual! Ellie came home completely worn out from playing with Jessie all day. She treated our dog like family and didn't have a bunch of dogs she was watching at the same time, which is rare to find. I highly recommend Kim if you want your dog to feel right at home and be loved & well taken care of! I wouldn't think of looking elsewhere.

Everything went well - Kim's great!
Kimberly and Sean took such good care of my 7 mos old wirehaired pointer! This was her first time away for overnight and they handled this energetic (but adorable) puppy wonderfully. They are "dog" people so very capable of dealing with the nuances of a young dog, who needs rules, and at the same time a very sweet girl!
It was nice to be away and not be worried about her!
Callie really loved you, too!

Kimberly was fantastic. She was incredibly detailed to make sure she knew all about the dogs, what they like, any detail to make this a great experience to them. Eddie and Gus had a blast and came home tired after all the fun. We will definitely use Kimberly again and give her our highest recommendation.

Kim was a FANTASTIC host, very easy to work with and sent us lots of pics and updates on our pup. I would highly recommend her and will use her again!
Kim was great! She clearly loves dogs and was SO accommmodating. My other sitter cancelled last minute, the night before I left on my trip, so I wasn't too hopeful that anyone would take Ellie on such short notice, especially for a first visit. But Kim responded to my request immediately and i was booked with her within 10 minutes - life saver!

Even though we were short on time, she was very well organized and knew exactly what information she needed and how the whole process worked. I immediately felt comfortable with her and Ellie absolutely adored her, as well as her little puppy Jesse who is the sweetest thing.

The accommodations were great, especially all he grass and walking areas. She also sent me regular updates more than once daily, including pictures, which really helped to make me feel at ease. We will definitely be using Kim again, and highly recommend her to others!
