About Kaja

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We all love dogs! I live near two great parks and have a big fully fenced back yard. We would love to have your dog stay with us and be part of the family. Snuggle with us on the couch, go for long walks.

Your Dog is welcomed at my Home! A Meets-n-Greet Request is required to view my home, of course, and to mutually agree if your Dog's stay is the right fit.

The best part about caring for dogs is how they make me laugh! I have a Lhasa Apso name Jule, who loves other DV Dogs! She loves having playmates and loves all dogs big and small.

Every Parent will receive daily updates which include wonderful pictures and videos sent via iphone of your Dog's adventures while they are staying with us! Guest DV Dogs can sleep any where in the house -- it's just like slumber party for dogs!

We love going to the park every day with other dogs to play and explore! Doggie treats are high value, all natural and plentiful for every guest DV Dog that stays with us. -

Rates start at $28+/24 hour period or less depending on size and needs.

George was so happy with Kaja. What a wonderful nearby option. Thank you!
Very accommodating. Our plans changed suddenly and we gave very little notice. We appreciate Kaja accommodating our changes. Our dog appeared to have fun and was very compatible with Kaja's dog. Great photos.
Kaja and her family did a great job watching my pup over the long weekend. Great alternative to a kennel, I would definitely book with Kaja again.
Kaja was great, will be back!
Friendly, safe and caring home ... lots of walks ...
Our dog really enjoyed her time with Kaja and her family. Very supportive especially when we unexpectantly asked her to administer eye drops. Will use this Dog Vacay on future trips to Victoria.
Thanks

Kaja was kind to our dog and seemed to genuinely like spending time with her. Kaja was great about communicating with us. We received daily photos of our dog which meant a lot. We would recommend Kaja to others.
Its obvious Kaja D loves dogs. She knows my dogs like they have had a long relationship even after a short time. Kaja is kind, considerate, organized, flexible and has a great home and family she shares with my animals. She is the best.
Our 2 doggies spent 4 days with Kaja and her family. What's really appreciated is that they are in a family environment, just like home.
Kaja was very accommodating with all aspects of their stay and our 2 girls were happy and in great shape when I picked them up.
Highly recommended!!

Loved the fact that Kaja's husband works from home and he also walks the dogs and is around lots so dog has lots of companionship. Her son is sometimes at home also. There is also her own dog Jewels that is good company.
I also appreciated that I could go and pick my dog up and take her on hikes and swim after work and bring her back in evening for bed time. Flexibility is one of my most important criteria for dog sitters :0) :O)

Kaja and her husband were fantastic with my very active and energetic Irish Setter puppy. Despite his energy levels, they were kind and empathetic with both me and him, flexible in understanding our situation and were good at making the right decisions and judgments, eg: gauging what was actually needed for him. Great communication. Highly recommended!

This was our first time using Dog Vacay and we were very happy! Kaja was very warm and welcoming which was just as important to me as it was for my dogs - probably more!
I got updates and pictures a couple of times a day. The dogs were well cared for and happy on pickup.
It's a shame Kaja and her family are moving from the area as I would definitely have my dogs stay with her again.
Please watch out for her when she settles in her new home and feel comfortable that your dog(s) are in good hands.
Good luck with your move!

Thanks for looking after Henry - when he came home he was pooped! Good luck with your move.
I'm a little late with this review. It is probably a subconscious delay because I am so sad at the thought of Kaja and her family moving and not being able to use her services any more. Her and her family were amazing...as usual!!!
Our Maggie had a lovely stay with Kaja. I loved the messages/pictures she sent us so we didn't miss her too much. I think she had an active and loving environment and made some special new friends. We would not hesitate to leave Maggie with Kaja again in the future. Thank you Kaja, Liam and Jewel!!!!

Thanks for taking such good care of Xena!!
Another perfect Dog Vacation for our 2 babies. Kaja and her family treated our dogs like they were their own. They had great fun with her going on hikes and being allowed to sleep on the bed with her and her family!!! Her boys seemed really happy to have had them for a whole month and Kaja sent me the pictures to prove it. I can't say enough about how happy we are with the love and care they receive with Kaja and her family!!!

Once again Nelson was treated just like a member of the family and he looks forward to being with Kaja and her family. Barbara
Kaja and her family have doggy sat our dogs a couple times now and we are thrilled to have found such a great loving family for our babies. Kaja and her husband are very reliable and kind to our dogs and her kids make sure our dogs are loved by letting them sleep up on the beds!!! (Just like home). We couldn't have found better people to take care of our babies when we are away. They have become our permanent sitters from now on.

Lulu had a great time at Kaja's home. She was there for 10 days and was treated as one of the family from day 1. Kaja sent pictures and verbal updates on a very regular basis which was greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend this home for other dog owners!

Another wonderful experience for all of us. Nelson obviously enjoyed his visit and was not anxious to come home. Kaja and family really make him feel at home. They played ball often, walked daily and Nelson even slept on of the boys beds. . . .what a treat!

This was Nelson's first visit with Kaja and he had a wonderful time. He was happy and relaxed when we picked him up. It was such a surprise to have pictures at the end of his first day and a fido phone message. My husband and I were delighted with his care and the enthusiasm Kaja held for future visits.

Another wonderful vacay for our little dawgs. Thanks Kaja!
Many thanks Kaja to you and your family for taking care of Lilly once again. Great to know my little girl is happy and content whilst we are away. I believe she misses you guys and her little play mates! Until the next time - :) Thank you. Julie
Thanks for taking good care of our girl!
My partner and I used Kaja D's services. I met with Kaja prior to dropping our dogs off for an overnight visit. She was very accommodating with meet times. I was happy to see her as she was just getting back from walking dogs and they all seemed happy and tired so I filed that away as a WIN!!! We had a great meeting and her home is perfect for my two dogs. I loved that she said her and her husband allow the dogs on the furniture and beds!!! Our dogs enjoyed their stay and her family. Her kids held, played and slept with our babies...another WIN!!! We weren't sure what time we could pick the dogs up the next day but, again, she was very accommodating telling us their was no rush and we could simply call if we needed them to stay an extra night...this allowed us to enjoy our time at my Mom's 80th Birthday and at our School Reunion the next day without a timeline hanging over our heads. We were told the dogs had a good time and they would take them again in the future. We will definitely be using them again!!!

Clark was so well loved and cared for I think he misses Kaja and her family. Kaja sent pics of Clark snuggling with her family and it was a relief knowing he was enjoying his stay.
Delighted to find someone to take care of Lilly whilst we were away, as an alternative to kennels. Kaja and her family were wonderful. Great to have peace of mind whilst away. Would definitely recommend. :)
Couldn't be happier to find a perfect fit for our pomchi named cookie ! He was in good hands with kaja and her family! They even let him sleep in their bed which I found to be so sweet! We were able to have an enjoyable March break mini getaway with the kids with a piece of mind knowing that our dog cookie was happy. The pictures she sent was very reassuring that we made the right decision.

We just picked up our dog Juno after 10 days. I think she was sorry to come home. Kaja and family took great care of our dog and we were happy for the alternative to a kennel. We would definitely send her there again.
Kaja & her husband were very accommodating, and sent a much-appreciated update in the morning! Looking forward to our next visit ;)
Kaja was great with DJengo!!! He went for long walks everyday! I would highly recommend Kaja and her family to watch your dog!! Vivian, Burlington Ontario
Excellent. Our dog loved it and they treated her as if she was their own. Kept us informed. Great to be able to leave our dog with someone we can trust .
Kaja and family took wonderful care of our pack of dogs on short notice. We'll definitely send them back for their next vacay. Thanks again!
