Bocce had a very good time with Elsa and Kelly's family. I think he even misses them a little!
Kelly's family took Bella over Christmas when all of the kids were home so Bella had a blast - always someone to throw the ball. Kelly sends texts, pictures and even a video of Bella running through the woods.
Bella loves it here! She comes home tired and happy. Thank you.
Kelly and her family kept our cockapoo for a long weekend in May, and he had a great time! She sent lots of pictures and updates and was incredibly accommodating to our travel schedule. She let me know that our dog fit in "like a member of her family" - what else would you want to hear from someone watching your dog! Thank you, Kelly, for treating Woody like your own!

We couldn't have been more pleased with our puppy's first stay away from home. Kelly is well-organized, experienced, friendly, courteous and connected immediately with our pup. We hope to become repeat customers!
Kelly was wonderful. Great communication and took great care of our Labradoodle!!
I hesitate to write a good review for selfish reasons ... I don't want Bella's new go-to sitter to book up with other dogs!! Bella clearly had a true vacation and was so happy and relaxed when I returned from 10 days away. I never worried a bit and Kelly sent me updates and pictures regularly. I felt like she was with family - awesome experience. I know Bella can't wait to stay again. Thank you so much Kelly.

It was the second time Hades stayed with Kelly and her family. We just needed somebody to watch him during the day, two days in a row; and Kelly has been a wonderful "doggie daycare provider".
Yesterday Hades spent 10 hours at Kelly's. This morning when I pulled over into her driveway, Hades was soooo excited! He literally pulled me to her front door!
Kelly, Thank you for watching Hades for us! We'll definitely be back!

Another great visit with Kelly and family! Mason has found his second home. Thanks for all the photo updates!
A wonderful, loving family. Our little guy had a great time with Elsa.
Bo had a wonderful time with Kelly and we couldn't have felt more comfortable leaving him for the weekend. Kelly is responsible and clearly loves dogs. Great experience.
My dog loved hanging out with this nice family and playing with their sweet standard poodle. Kelly sent us photos every day so we could see how our dog was doing. Great experience.
I had a blast hanging with Elsa, thank you for watching me!!! Thank you Kelly! We will be back for Tank's next vacay :)
Tank You for watching me, I had a blast and can't wait to come back for my next vacay - Tank :)
Kelly was a wonderful host to our 5.5-months-old puppy. She was very prompt to answer our e-mails/ inquiries and in anticipation of Hades coming, she asked for his "normal day schedule" so she could stick to it, when Hades was staying with her.

On this occasion, Hades stayed with her for one day. When I picked him up in the evening, he was happy to see me, but at the same time, he wasn't too eager to leave Kelly's home. He definitely felt there at home, and he even "gave Kelly a hug" before we left.

I'll definitely leave Hades with her again, without hesitation.

Kelly Thank you! Tank had so much fun with Elsa while I was on vacation - it was just as much a vacation for Tank as it was for me :) I definitely recommend Kelly and Elsa!!
Kelly was an excellent host and sent frequent picture updates during our dog's extended week-long stay. With a great space and regular company during his visit, Mason truly had his own vacation at the same time as we were off on ours. Would book again in an instant. Thank you!
