Kristy Ann is Great! - Our dog Sadie is a rescue and is very skittish and nervous around new people (we suspect that she has been abused). Kristy & her family makes an extra effort to work with her and make Sadie comfortable in her home.
Kristy was very good with our two crazy dogs. She also kept me posted with pictures and how they were doing. Thanks again! Will use again :) She definitely has a love for animals.
She's awesome! She let me drop off Foster as early as 6:30am since I work downtown, and was very accommodating with an early or later pick up. She also voluntarily brushed his coat, and other puppy love.
Kristy makes Zoey feel like she is at her second home. If you are looking for a great sitter, look no further.
Kristy was great. She made Zoey feel at home. She sent regular updates so we knew Zoey was safe and having a good time.
Kristy was awesome. I don't think Zoey wanted to leave.
Grace spent the day with KristyAnn and her family and had a great time. She was showered with attention and loved it!! She was sure tuckered out from all the play time when we got home! Thanks KristyAnn!!
I really cannot express how extraordinary KristyAnn is with our dogs (now two, the second dog thanks to her). I should ask her if I can put her in my will to get the dogs if something were to happen to me. They would get over it pretty quick if they had her. She is a treasure.

Sadie really appears to enjoy her stays at KristyAnn's which is great! Sadie is a bit timid nervous and apprehensive around non family members -- It appears that she has accepted KristyAnn's family & pooches as her extended Family!
KristyAnn has always done an excellent job with both animals. We have an elder dog and KristyAnn provides TLC to her each time.
KristyAnn is amazing and my dog loves her.
So happy to find someone that treats Pyper like their own.
Nemo has found his new safe haven. Kristy was great with Nemo, a playful yet nervous 7 yr old parson terrier. In between our busy traveling schedules, Nemo had gotten some stomach problem and had runny stools. Kristy continued to care for him and keep his prescribed meds up to date when we were away and now Nemo has fully recovered. Thanks Kristy!

KristyAnn is the best. Both Lolly and Josie have a blast.
My dog Abby just returned home from an awesome dog vacay with Kristyann D and her lovely family. This was Abby's 4th stay and I always feel confident that she is in a loving and caring home, while in my absence! Kristyann always sends me daily photo updates and videos, so I can have peace of mind that Abby is happy and having fun! Thank you for taking such good care of my sweet girl. I know she's looking forward to her next "vacay" with Kristyann!

Sadie spent the day with KristyAnn, her resident pups plus her children. When I came to pick her up she seemed to be quite relaxed & happy in the environment. (We had been concerned as Sadie is quite skittish around new people) We definitely plan on arranging further stays with KristAnn she is obviously an ardent dog lover & took great care her pup. I would highly recommend her.

My pups love going to see KristyAnn!! They always have fun and are well cared for.
KristyAnn is awesome. My babies love going on vacay at her house and I feel confident that they are well cared for.
KristyAnn is a knowledgeable, loving dog sitter.
Piper always comes back from KristyAnn happy and unstressed. I can relax much more knowing that my dog is in great hands.
As always, Piper loved being with KristyAnn! I wouldn't trust my dog with anyone else. She is amazing.
Kristyann was amazing with my boxer brave. I would recommend her and use her anytime im going out of town. Thanks again
KristyAnn is always my top choice when it comes to boarding my dog. She treats my dog like one of her own and keeps me updated on how everything is going with videos and pictures. I have never had a bad experience boarding with KristyAnn. She is the best!

Thank you Kristy for another fun stay for Bailey. Enjoyed the daily texts and photos because when I am away from her I miss her so much! Thanks for washing her bed too :-) Appreciate everything, Jan
This was Bailey's second stay with KristyAnn and when we walked into the house Bailey immediately started to give her kisses all over KristyAnn's face so I know she likes her! It made me feel great about leaving her. KristyAnn is great at communicating to let let you know your pup is safe and doing well and even sends cute photos. Bailey is going to stay with KristyAnn again 2 weeks from now and I know she will enjoy her stay and I will have peace of mind.

We use Kristy Ann almost every time we go out of town and for daycare sometimes during the week. She is fantastic! She is always so excited to see Riley and there are always friends for Riley to play with.
Kristy: Thank you so much for taking such good care of Beamer while I was away for two weeks. You truly lived up to everything I heard about you. She truly enjoyed staying with you and slept for a couple of days when she got home. Thank you again. Sally

KristyAnn is awesome and takes care of my baby as if he were her own. Her whole family is so good to my puppy son and I am comfortable leaving him in their care....anytime!
Thank you for making Beamer so comfortable in your home.
Kristy Ann is the very best dog sitter and I could not be any happier with her service! She is so caring and loving with our dog Bailey. It made my vacation so relaxing just knowing that Bailey was in such good hands. All throughout the week I was gone Kristy texted me updates and photos every day and I could tell that Bailey was happy and secure with Kristy. I highly recommend Kristy to anyone looking for a very special person to love and care for your dog. Excellent!

I am so happy that we found KristyAnn! Brock is in love with her, and is super excited to arrive every morning. KristyAnn is really engaged with his well-being and happiness, and it is really nice to be able to leave my puppy with a peace of mind that he is being well cared for. Also, as a first time pet-owner, KristyAnn's advice and training tips have been very helpful. I would recommend her any day!

Albert loves KristyAnn and her family and they love him as well. I always feel at ease when he is with this awesome family.
Piper had a wonderful time with KristyAnn. She came home happy, tired, and stress free. I couldn't image leaving her with anyone else.
Our Ty's stay with KristyAnn was wonderful. He seemed to have a great time. KristyAnn was very good working with us on the drop off & pick-up times. She provided great pictures during his stay and we would definitely recommend her to others. Thank you KristyAnn for caring for our little guy!

I've been using KristyAnn for daycare and occasional boarding for over nine months now. She is great with my challenging high-energy one year old large dog. Karma loves going and has great pooch friends to play with. KristyAnn is (and her family!) are loving and patient caretakers. Karma always gets plenty of exercise and interaction. I give highest marks (barks?) and endorsement for her service.

Abby had another great stay with KristyAnn B! Thank you KristyAnn for putting my mind at ease with nightly video updates of my girl! I could see that she was having a great time with you and your crew, so I didn't worry about her a bit.

I know that she is looking forward to her next visit!

Great! I was anxious about leaving my New dog and she sent me pictures and videos everyday!
Kristy kept me updated throughout my trip and was very accommodating and flexible with drop off and pick up times. We will definitely use Kristy again in the future.
KristyAnn is awesome!!!
KristyAnn is the best! She sends videos and pics of my dog which is really comforting! My dog stays with her every time! Highly recommended!
Although Kristy came very highly recommended by a friend and has great reviews and repeat customers, I was very nervous about leaving my super friendly Maltipoo with a sitter who had multiple dogs at once. Kristy introduced my baby to other dogs during our visit and assured me that the small dogs and large dogs were separate and that my baby would be ok. This was our first time with a sitter and I was extremely anxious about being apart. Kristy helped assuage my concerns by sending a pic before I could even get to the airport and followed up with videos of my baby playing with other pups having the time of his life. Kristy and her family took great care of him and I was able to relax while away for a long weekend. My baby was exhausted when I picked him up which was great! His face was also super clean and when I asked Kristy if she used any products on him she said, "Nope...just love!" I certainly believe that and appreciate the great care she took of my little love muffin.

As usual, KristyAnn was amazing! Piper came home happy and tired.
Perfect as always ;)
Kristy Ann is the best! My dogs always have a great time. I can't recommend her enough. She sent me videos and photos of the fun they were having. It helped me enjoy my trip so much more knowing they were in great hands!
What can I say about our experience but "AWESOME!!!!!!" KristyAnn is extremely professional and will go out of her way to make you and your pet feel as if he is at home. She sent me picture updates of him playing and having a great time while he was on dog vacation.

I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for someone to watch their 4 legged friend.

I plan on using her for all my dog vacation needs.

I've taken my dog to stay with KristyAnn twice now and have already made another reservation! She sends pictures of him every day and he always comes back exhausted meaning that he has been played with plenty! Thank you for a home away from home for Sumter!

KristyAnn was great! She made me feel comfortable leaving my babies. Otto and Olive can be a handful but, she handled it perfectly. Already made my next reservation!
Lola loves to go to Kristi's - it's truly her home away from home :)
She's my go-to host anytime I can't take my dog traveling with me. 100% recommended!
KristyAnn is amazing. My dogs love her and she loves them. This is the fifth or sixth time we've used her services and we couldn't be happier.
KristyAnn was amazing as usual. It's been a while since our dog was able to stay with KristyAnn and she came back happy and very tired.
Very helpful and responsive to the animal's needs. Also, she keeps us posted on their well being during our absence. Highly satisfied with KristyAnn and her services.
Lola had a great time! KristyAnn is awesome :)
Lola had a great time & we will use KristyAnn again when Lola needs a sitter!
Bella loved staying with KristyAnn & family for 5 days. Great first DogVacay experience. Will definitely use again.
Dolly had a great time staying over!
Dolly had a great time, will definitely take her to visit Kristy again!
KristyAnn is great!!! Both puppies came home happy and exhausted. I'm sure they had a wonderful time. I will send them to KristyAnn again.
only one thing to say. Fantastic, smoky did not want to come home. great communications. will use KristyAnn again.
KristyAnn is the best! She is great at sending picture updates, and our yorkie had a great stay!
Our dog had a great time at KristyAnn's. I'm booking her again for the holidays right now!
My dogs have gone back to KrisyAnn many times. They are happy when I pull up to her house and come back happy and not stressed. She is fantastic with them. I feel very relaxed when I have to leave my dogs for travel. I know they are not only well cared for but get that extra touch of love they need.

Awesome!
Awesome!
KristyAnne made it easy for me to focus on my whirlwind 24 hr visit out of town. She took great care of Maverick with several photos and a video of how much fun he was having. She was so easy to work with. When he came home he went right back into our home life again, no adjustment time needed. We will be going out of town again soon and will definately be calling on her again.

KristyAnn and her family made Zoey feel like she was at a 5 star resort. We will be asking KristyAnn to watch her again very soon.
Samantha loves staying at KristyAnn's place! She is always so well taken care of!!
Excellent care with a very personal touch, Kristy is wonderful with our dog and really treats him like her own. He loves going on vacation to Kristy's.
KristyAnn was awesome with Tarchin! This was the first time I used Dogvacy to find someone to keep my dog while out of town. She sent me pics and updates each day on how Tarchin was doing and his outdoor activities. He looked like he was happy and had a great time! I will definitely be using KristyAnn again in the future, she's appears to be a fun loving person who loves dogs and enjoys what she's doing.

Simba had a great time with KristyAnn. I would recommend her to other dog owners and hope to use her again.
My dogs visit was great as always. Kristy is excellent with the dogs and they come back not stressed and happy. She takes the dogginess in stride. Would return again and again.
Excellent!
I can't say enough good things about KristyAnn. I was kept up to date everyday and she took wonderful care of my two pups. They had a wonderful time. I've never seen them so worn out from having all that fun. I will definitely be having her watch my pups again. I would recommend her to everyone.

I was able to fully enjoy my vacation knowing that Reggie was in good hands. KristyAnn is an amazing host and I will continue to use her again and again.
Kristy Ann did a wonderful job with our puppy Piper. Piper came home happy and tired each night and was excited to see Kristy Ann in the morning.
I recently had a great experience with KristiAnn B. My dog Abby was a first time houseguest. KristiAnn sent me nightly video updates of Abby playing with her new dog and human friends, which put my mind at ease, knowing that she was fine and having a good time! My experience with was awesome and I recommend KristiAnn as a host for your pup without reservation.

We have a puppy that is very energetic, a little shy, and working on house training and Kristy Ann was wonderful with her. She was patient, understanding, and very knowledgeable. We will definitely be bringing her back.
KristyAnn has been great to work with. It's so comforting leaving Reggie with someone who has such a passion for her craft and knowledge of dogs. I always know he's in good hands.
Nico loves it at KristyAnn's house. It is truly a vacation for him.
Second time reserving with KristyAnn and everything went well! She sent videos and pictures of my dog playing which was assuring. She was also accommodating enough to let my dog stay an extra night due to some last minute scheduling hiccups on my end. I HIGHLY recommend her!
Read More...
KristyAnn took great care of our dogs, who can sometimes be a bit shy around new people. We needed someone to take care of them at the house. She even came to the house one more time after the reservation was over because she hadn't heard from us and wanted to make sure the dogs were taken care of. Would highly recommend her to anyone.

Always awesome to have Sammie stay and play with KristyAnn and Co.
When we pick our dogs up from their 1st Vacation, we could tell that they were well cared for by KristyAnn. They love the attention & consistent human contact. We have already scheduled their next vacation.
KristyAnn was wonderful with my beagle. I'm ready to book my next stay with her. Highly recommend!
KristyAnn: Thanks much for hosting Nikki. She enjoyed her vacation (told me so) but was glad to get home. Stuart
She is very good with Buddy! He loves her, definitely a repeat.
Kristyann is great! Josie had a great time. Kristyann is easy to work with. You'll love her!
Hunter seemed to be very happy when I picked him up. He obviously had a great time. We will definitely use Kristyann again.
He's so tired so I know he had a great time!
Our boys had a great time with Kristyann! They are very skeptical of other people, but seemed to warm up to her fast. We will definitely be seeing her again for our next boarding.
The only problem is now my dogs expect me to spoil them the way Kristy Anne does!
Kristy Anne is the only dog sitter for my girls!
My dogs had a better vacation that I did!
Our two dogs, Delta and Dixie, have such a blast when they are with the "aunt" Kristy Anne. As excited as they are to see us when we arrive to pick them up, they're equally sad to say goodbye.
My dog Dublin stayed with KristyAnn for about 8 days while we were out of town for the holidays. It was the first time I had ever left him with someone other than my parents. She sent me pictures and videos daily to let me know he was okay. I felt very comfortable with him there. He had such a good time that I don't think he wanted to leave when we picked him up. I would definitely recommend her and I will be using her again!

Sebastian always has a great time at Kristyann's. I know he is good hands with her.
Kristyann is awesome!
My dog has stayed several times with Kristy and will definitely stay again when I travel. He seems to feel there like home, eats normally from the first day (usually when I leave him somewhere else he refuses any food for the first couple of days) and has overcome his anxiety and plays/socializes with the other dogs.

Roxy loves visiting with KristyAnn! Such a spoiled baby. ;)
Kristyann is the BEST!! I trust her fully with my dog.
As always, Walter & Winona had a great stay. KristyAnn is THE best!
I did a last minute overnight and was very happy with the photo updates and how happy my pup looked. I especially like that this host has a small pack of her own for Luna to play with during her stay.
Kristyann is always great to make my pug feel at home and have a great time. The daily pictures and updates let me know that he is having fun and enjoying himself.
Host fit me in last minute, great place, convenient location
As usual, everything was wonderful with KristyAnn watching our pups. The girls were so excited when they got out of the car and realized where they were, and our puglet even wanted to go back into KristyAnn's backyard to keep playing when we came to pick them up! I can't imagine a better person, or place, to leave our girls with when they can't join us where ever we're going. Not to mention how awesome the beautiful photos are that KristyAnn takes and sends to you while you're on your trip so you can see for yourself that your little furry loved ones are having a great time!

Sebastian had a great time as usual! Kristyann was very accommodating when I had to add an extra day to his day. Sebastian loves it over there!
Kristyann was great, as usual! Sebastian always has a blast and comes home worn out. I know he is in good hands while he is there and is having fun playing with the other dogs. She is my go-to dog sitter!
Kristyann is great! My little 5 month old pup felt at home with her right away. Kristyann was so accommodating and flexible with my schedule. She gave me photo updates often. For someone who worries a little too often about her puppy, Kristyann made it almost impossible for me to worry! I just knew Baxter was having a great time with Kristyann and her welcoming pack. :)

Kristyann was great! Very accommodating. I would recommend her with no reservations and plan to book with her again!
It was our first time leaving our dog with someone, so we were at first very nervous .My dog spent 2 weeks with Kristy Ann and we were very happy that we made thaat decision. I would get pictures and videos of him everyday, having fun with other dogs aad making himself at home there, and that kept us feel safe, and we could definately trust her to watch our dog again for our next trip.

Always such an ease to have Samantha stay with Kristy Ann. I know she's well taken care of and so happy to be there - she always comes back exhausted!
This was my first time keeping my 10-month old puppy with anyone and I couldn't have been more thrilled! First, Kristy Ann was really flexible on my drop off times, which helped take a lot of my travel stress. She also sent pics and videos of my guy having a great time while I was gone which was so fun to receive. When I picked him up, he was happy and excited and proceeded to sleep the entire rest of the day - a sure sign he had a great time!

Perfect care, perfect communication.
Indy had a great time with Kristyann. He immediately felt right at home.
Awesome as usual! My dog is a regular at KristyAnn's house!
What can I say except that KristyAnn is the best! She sent pics & videos of Walter & Winona having fun with their doggy pals & lounging in bed with her watching movies. I highly recommend KristyAnn to everyone. I don't worry one bit about my pups when they are with her. Thanx so much, KristyAnn!!!

KB is great! Rado always comes home exhausted and I know that he's had a great day of playing with the other dogs. She's also super flexible about pickup and drop off times which is very helpful with our hectic schedules.
Izzy loves staying with KristyAnn. She loves playing with the other dogs, and even learned to swim! She comes home tired and peaceful.
Great, as usual! Sebastian always has a great time.
As usual, another great experience for Bailey. Thanks!
Great
Bailey loved it!
Kristy is awesome. This is the second time that I have used her for the weekend to watch my golden and each time it has been great. She is very flexible for drop off and pick up so the worries about working around someone else's schedule is not there. The pictures that she sends everyday go a long way towards reassuring me that my pup is safe and happy.

Kristy's house is awesome! I have a 1 year old chocolate lab and he loves it there! There is a pool and other dogs and lots of toys for him! He gets so excited when he goes there and is always worn out after! Knowing my puppy is in a place he loves makes it easier to leave him! This is a great place thanks kristy!
Read More...
My dog loves staying with Kristy and swimming in her swimming pool with the other dogs! Nothing could be better than that!
I'm reluctant to recommend KristyAnn because i want her all to myself!

She is amazing. My dogs love her, her place is a doggy playground, and it's very clean and safe. The other dogs that were there made for a happy pack of playmates for my two.

KristyAnne's place is my dogs home away from home!

Tanner and Wrigley mean the world to me as does their happiness. We first did a meet and greet with KristyAnn and instantly clicked. Her backyard is set up like a little pup resort! There was plenty of clean room to run, a nice pool to cool off, and comfy shade to take a nap! She was really sweet to "The Bros" and made sure all my questions were answered. It was an easy decision to use her for my work trip!

While I was gone KristyAnn sent me updates, pictures, and videos of my furry buddies. It was evident that they were having a great time and felt loved. They played hard and also enjoyed being her shadow. She treated them as if they were her own. Wrigley and Tanner also seemed to get along well with the other dogs there. I think that's important to note because it shows she's cautious about temperament. This worry-wart of a mom was completely put at ease and I will definitely be using her in the future!! When I came to pick them up they were excited to see me, but then also ran back to her for one last hug. That says a lot!
Read More...
First off, after seeing her beautiful backyard, I was tempted to have a vacation day there myself! The dogs have a big backyard to play and run around and a swimming pool too! Secondly, she knows dog CPR and there is an animal hospital close by just in case anything happens. Also, her price is awesome and she was super flexible on when I could drop my pup off and pick up as long as I gave her notice.

Layla, my dog, slept the entire next day after getting her back because she was so tired and had so much fun at her house.

KristyAnn is AWESOME! Roxy had so much fun visiting and playing at her home. She's a Lab and loves the pool. Thanks so much for making her feel at home!
Walter & Winona had a great time at Kristy Ann's! I loved getting the pictures of them playing with the other dogs. Thanks so much! We will definitely be using Kristy Ann in the near future!
Sebastian seemed to have a great time and was definitely worn out when I brought him back home. This was my first time leaving him with a stranger, but Kristyann made me very comfortable and definitely knew what she was doing. Loved the updates throughout his stay so I knew he was doing ok. I will definitely use Kristyann again.
Read More...
Very good experience from start to finish - Kristyann was helpful and responsive setting everything up, she sent me a lot of pictures and my dog seemed very happy throughout. I have already made another reservation for next week.
Kristy is great as usual! There is no one else I trust my little Mason with.
Kristyann is awesome!

We felt comfortable with her to give her a key to our home so she could go in and walk our puppy Foster. He adores her and she is so much fun. She sends me pictures of what Foster is doing while out on their walks. She is a lifesaver and we feel lucky to have her there for us when we need her ;-)

We have used Kristy Ann twice now - both have been great experiences! Bogart comes home exhausted and I can always tell he's had a good time while I was away. Kristy Ann sends pictures often...Bogey is usually playing in the yard, in the pool, or goofing off with the other dogs. I have much more piece of mind leaving him here than boarding him! We already have our next reservation set up with Kristy Ann!

She is the most amazing dogsitter ever. Don't even bother looking anywhere else, she is perfect. She keeps you updated on how much fun your dog is having and is very flexible with pickup/drop off times. She made me feel very good about leaving Bruce with her for an entire weekend and even let me book an extra night at the last minute when my trip was extended!
I'll never leave Bruce with anyone else while KristyAnn is available!
Read More...
After another 10-day stay with Kristy my dog came back happy, relaxed and healthy, unlike his previous stays with other kennels when he always came back nervous, edgy and hungry. Definitely will use again!
Great!
KristyAnn is awesome! I thank God for her...I wouldnt be able to travel with my job without her services.
From the time I dropped Mimi off with Kristyann, I knew she was in good hands and would enjoy a comfortable stay. She sent me pics and video of Mimi regularly, which was nice since it was the longest I'd been a part from my dog-baby. I'd highly recommend Kristyann!
Read More...
Kristyann is amazing! I would trust her with my dog in any circumstance!
Kristyann is AMAZING! I was extremely nervous about leaving Bruce with a stranger for the first time but she is perfect. She sent me several videos and pictures of Bruce during the entire weekend and even let me book him with her for an extra day when my trip ran long. Bruce had so much fun while he was with her and she spoiled him just as much as I do. He got to play in a nice back yard with other dogs all weekend long instead of being stuck in some kennel and was just the happiest puppy ever. He was exhausted when I picked him up from playing all weekend long!
She even sent me some gorgeous pictures of him that I plan on printing and framing- he never lets me take good pictures of him!
I will always be book Bruce's vacations with Kristyann from now on. She is just so fantastic. I've been recommending her to anyone that mentions needing a dog sitter.
If you're nervous about leaving your dog with someone, pick Kristyann. She'll keep you up to date on your puppy's activities with cute videos and pictures and make you feel so much better about leaving your pup behind.

Our chocolate lab Frank LOVED staying with Kristy...she has a nice fenced-in yard (and pool) which gave him plenty of space to run around and play with the other dogs much as he wanted. The dogs are always supervised since Kristy works out of her home; there is no worry that they will be left alone during the day. She was a pleasure to work with and also provided daily photo and video updates which were greatly appreciated. We will certainly use her again in the future...highly recommended!!

She was awesome!! My dog loved her, and had a GREAT time!
Kristy Ann is my "go-to" dog sitter! I know she really cares for Duke and engages him. I feel so much better leaving him to play with her and her doggies than I ever would just kenneling him at some boarding place, worrying if he is just sitting in a crate all day. My only worry is that he would rather stay with her forever! :-)

KRISTYANN took great care of Samson and I was at total peace about leaving him with her. She sent daily video of him playing in her yard, and pics of him happy and well cared for. Samson was hesitant to even leave Kristyann as he has a wonderful time at her house. I appreciate the care given to my dog and will definitely use her again.

Kristyann sent me daily pics of my puppy which is definitely comforting. Baxter looked like he had a blast and was completely worn out when he got back home! :) I plan on making a reservation again with Kristyann in the future!
Very happy - me and my dog - with Kristy. This is the place I have been looking for for a long time. Definitely will use it again whenever I travel.
Always a great experience!!!!
Kristyann was great! She took the time to meet my dog before the stay. My dog is really shy and scared, but Kristyann made her feel comfortable. In the end Charlie had a great time. I got pictures throughout her stay. Felt comfortable the entire time I was away. Would def recommend.

Thank you so much, Kristyann! I've dreaded boarding Norah Belle and Chandler ever since we moved to Atlanta. I always had to go out of the way to get them to my parents in Florida. Now that I know they are safe and happy with you I won't have a problem leaving them again. I had complete peace of mind--especially with all the great photos and updates :) Thank you!!!

Winnie enjoyed her time with Kristyann so much the next time I took her she jumped out the car and ran to the door and didn’t even want to say bye to me. Kristyann really enjoys what she does and it shows!!!
Kristyann was great and Bailey was exhausted from all the play time she got while we were out of town.
Kristyann was very responsive in setting up a meet and greet and took plenty of time to let me dog get comfortable in her home. She was very flexible in setting drop-off and pick-up times, and even kept my dog later into the day when I had an unexpected change in plans. Most of all, Kristyann was very friendly to me and very kind to my dog!

Kristy is great
This is my second review of Kristyann...she's awesome!! My boys love staying with her and I love the peace of mind I have knowing they're with someone who really loves them.
In addition, the text updates and photos let me know what fun they're having.
Try Kristyann - you won't regret it!

Had a great experience with KristyAnn, who kept our doggie three days and nights. Very responsive and professional. We know our doggie Duke had a great time and really enjoyed the play time with other doggies. He did not miss us a bit! He is still just a crazy puppy but I knew KristyAnn could handle him. I was totally at ease my whole vacation, knowing Duke was cared for and entertained, and not just crated in a kennel nonstop for hours. Great service and I expect she will be our "go to" person from now on anytime we need someone to care for Duke.

Kristyann was so awesome sending me pictures and videos of my baby throughout his stay. This was my first time using a dog-sitter ever, and with Max's separation anxiety, I felt a little nervous about leaving him for 5 long days, but I immediately felt at ease after seeing Max interact with Kristyann and her dogs. I am definitely bringing Max back for Christmas!

Lots of pictures and updates plus a loving home made Bailey happier than ever to have a few days to play with other dogs and hang out on the patio outside.
Kristyann is the best! We have an english bulldog, which can be very difficult to care for, but she did awesome. She always kept me up to date with adorable photos and videos. Our flight was delayed and we had a very late pickup, but she is flexible with your plans. I highly recommend her to watch your pet. I will be a repeat customer.

Kristy and her husband are THE BEST. This is the second time I've boarded my dog with them, and I have never had any reason to have any complaint -- I get daily text and email updates from when it's nap time, park time, or breakfast -- it puts my mind at ease knowing how much fun my kiddo is having when I'm gone. Kristy is also a photographer, and takes professional pictures while your pet it there -- which are all wonderful. I now have the best photos, on top of a wonderful boarding experience. THANK YOU!

As a first-time user of Dog Vacay, I looked at a number of potential hosts, but when I read all of the reviews for KristyAnn, I thought she might be the one. Every review was glowing, so we set up a meet and greet and she immediately put my mind at rest about her ability to give Bosco and Ibby the love and care I give them.
She knew I was nervous about leaving them and she sent videos and pics throughout my travels. She also sent texts just telling me that they were doing great and how sweet they were being.
Her flexibility with drop off and pick up were a huge help, since my flights were early on the departure and late on the return.
I will, without hesitation, have my boys take all of their vacays with KristyAnn!
Special shout out to KristyAnn's husband, who also loved on them and made them feel welcome!

After leaving my fur baby in the very capable hands of KristyAnn over the labor day weekend, I can't imagine ever boarding him again. The regular updates (with pictures no less!) made it so easy to relax and know that my dog was happy and cared for. Wonderful first experience with DogVacay and KristyAnn.

KristyAnn clearly has a love for animals. She sends daily photos...which are so cute by the way! She is super flexible and nice. I feel very comfortable leaving my furbaby with her. As much as I travel...I've already decided KristyAnn will be my dog's God Mommy :-)

What a fantastic experience! This was our first time boarding our puppy, and KristyAnn immediately set our minds at ease. She was very responsive and was willing to go above and beyond to make sure we knew our dog was in good hands. She was extremely flexible with our schedule when we needed a late pick up and even gave us the option for Jackson to sleep over.

She sent us photo updates throughout the visit of Jackson playing with all his new furry friends. He was able to get play time and one-on-one affection. When we picked him up, it was clear he had a great time and bonded with KristyAnn, her husband and the other pets.

I would absolutely recommend KristyAnn to anyone and would use her again in a heartbeat. She left us with a happy puppy and beautiful photographs of his doggy vacay in Atlanta!

Kristyann is very professional and knows what she is doing!
She is fast to respond, is very acommodating and also understanding. She is certainly an animal lover and I felt at ease knowing my dog was being cared for by her while I was at a conference. This weekend Ricky will get to spend more time with Kristyann and her other canine residents as my husband and I will go on a 3-day fun trip. I feel pretty good about leaving Ricky with Kristyann as I know he will be in good hands. No more kennel days for us now that we found Kristyann. Did I mention she keeps you posted on how your doggie is doing via short text messages with pictures of your dog? That is awesome!

KRISTYANN was a great host! I had to schedule a last minute stay for my pup, Ava, and got a response from her right away. She was very flexible and welcoming. Her experience with and passion for dogs was immediately apparent, and she did her best to make my shy and nervous dog feel at ease. Her space and attitude allow for a calm and comfortable environment. Ava got to interact with other doggy playmates but also one on one human attention, and all of this equals a much better deal than a doggy daycare situation. And as a major bonus, I got text and picture text (professional photos I can add to my "Ava collection" :-p) updates throughout Ava's stay about her comfort and activities. I've recommended her to my friends and will definitely book a reservation with her in the future.

I can't say enough about the wonderful time my 7 month old pup Kodi had with KristyAnn and her pack.  Because this was Kodi's first "boarding" experience, I was extremely nervous about leaving her for the weekend.  KristyAnn was both responsive and patient answering all of my questions and made me feel comfortable leaving Kodi in her care.  Suffice it to say, I worried in vain because I left her in more than capable hands.  Not only did KristyAnn contact me several times a day to update me on Kodi, she also sent beautiful pictures of her to show me what a great time she was having (you get the benefit of an awesome dog sitter and photographer all rolled into one :). After her stay with KristyAnn, Kodi came home a tired, well-behaved and happy pup.  Did I mention she's flexible with drop off and pickup times as well?  You just can't beat that!  Give KristyAnn a try, you'll be happy that you did.

Kristy and her husband were WONDERFUL! She sent text picture updates multiple times a day, and is also a professional photographer, so I ended up with amazing pictures of my dog as well! I will be most definitely using their services again!
It is clear Kristy has a great love and affinity for dogs. She was easy to contact and prompt in her responses. Ruger had a great time being part of her family, and I have the pictures to prove it, Ha. I would highly recommend.
