About Kelly

17 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, my name is Kelly and my dog Max is a huge part of the business for all dogs need a job. He is a wonderful walker and enjoys the company of others. We have been through some training and everyone comments on how well-mannered he is, especially with helping other dogs with the walking exercise. He may not be attending all the walks but how could I not include my best buddy in the business.

We live in a rancher style home that sits on 2 acres of land. The back side of house has about half an acre that is fenced for the dogs to run, play fetch, and have some flirt pole fun! The dogs are always supervised for I enjoy taking part in the dogs’ activities.

Services I provide include daily dog walks, play sessions, loving care for our seniors, vet check-ups, transport, some daycare, and overnight stays.

It is not easy leaving your pet while you go away or are at work. So as an added bonus, I send pictures and or a video to my clients so they can see what their furry friends are up to.

We can discuss the services you are most interested in during the Complimentary Meet & Greet. If you are looking for daycare, overnight stay, and having your pup walk with my boy Max, I prefer a second complimentary meet & greet. We need to make sure that the dogs are a good fit for each other as well as the humans. The second meet and greet would be at my home. I like to start with a walking exercise around the property, then enter the fenced yard, and then into the house. This is a great start to a doggie friendship! We do have two cats, Little Man and Cody Coat. No problems on our end with the cats and dogs in the same house however, if your dog is aggressive towards cats then we may not be a good fit.

I hope you agree and look forward to meeting you and your loyal companion.

Sincerely,

Kelly

Kelly was fantastic! This was the first time I've placed my dogs in boarding and the first time using this service and she was very accommodating! She sent texts and pictures updating me about my girls. I will be definitely be scheduling with Kelly the next time I need to board my dogs and I would highly recommend her.

We've taken our 2 large dogs to Kelly 6 times over the last year and we can't thank her enough for all that she does for our boys. Kelly is extremely attentive and is great at identifying potential problems and knows how to make sure every dog who is staying with her is in a safe and welcome environment. She truly makes our dogs feel at home whenever they stay with her. Kelly has a great house and large fenced in yard, and she frequently takes them on walks, hikes, and bike rides. When we pick them up, they are always exhausted. An experience you would never have when boarding your pets. Kelly also sends frequent photo and video updates. She's great!

This was our first boarding experience at Kelly's house and we had so much fun. She let us sleep with her and we had lots of playmates. It was a little scary to not be with our Mom and Dad but she was so nice to us that she made us feel okay with them being away. Thank you, Kelly, for taking such good care of us. We hope we can come over to play again!

Skyler always enjoys her time with Kelly, Max, Phil and the whole gang. I never worry about Skyler when she is with Kelly. I know that she's being taken care of and that she's having a good time.
Kelly is always great with our dogs! She's the only one we trust with our little ones! It is so reassuring to know that she takes such good care of them. Frequently sending pictures and video so that we know how they are doing and letting us see them while we are away is wonderful. She's great!

Kelly provides such great care for Skyler. I know that she truly cares about Skyler and her well-being. I have no worries when Skyler is with her. She also provides feedback, photos and videos when we are away. So we always know what's going on!!
Kelly is very accommodating and helpful. Leo loves to go to her and Max. :-).
We had an unexpected death in the family and Kelly was so reassuring and watched our dogs two more days than arranged so that we could be with our family. It was reassuring that she was with our dogs during that time. We will be rescheduling our vacation and we will be calling Kelly again! We are so grateful for her care and concern.

Kelly was so great with our dog, Molly. She sent us pictures, videos, and updates the whole time we were gone. Kelly was very attentive to molly's needs and treated our pup like she was at home. I would recommend her!
Great experience with Kelly. Great communication from her with pictures and videos. We feel so comfortable with her care of our Skyler. She really cares about the comfort and happiness of the pets in her care.
Kelly was fantastic! Frequently sending photos and videos of the dogs...and they really had a great time! Kelly also taught me some strategies to help with my Rosie (a rescue) and she has been getting more socialization and seems to be much happier. I will be calling Kelly again...soon!

On short notice we needed a vacation home for our dogs. Kelly set up a visit to meet our girls (Holli and Bella) and another visit to see how our girls would do with Max. The girls had a great weekend. We were very comfortable with Kelly and the home setting. We have already scheduled another stay with Kelly as we have to go back to Chicago for another wedding.

Kelly and her husband were fantastic. Very nice, secluded, shady and fenced in property and their dog Max was a wonderful and freindly host.
