About Kristin

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have over 5 years of experience taking care of my own dogs and being a foster dog parent. I have experience with many different breeds, ages and sizes. I can administer meds if needed. My home is about 2,400 square feet. I have several different areas for your dogs to be in that can be gated off. Most of the time they are free to rome the house. Outside I have over 10 acres for them to play in. I have a 20x20 kennel, dog run and trails for them to take walks on. I work from home so your dog will get the love and attention it needs. I can play, cuddle and give potty breaks often. I am married with 2 teenagers and we all help out with the care of your fur baby. I have 2 dogs a yorkie and chihuahua who would love some playmates.

Very lovely first time experience. Kristin was nice enough to send me updates along with pictures. Very very happy that I took Wilby here I definitely will be coming back. Thank you again!
I left my 5 lb puppy with Kristen over the Christmas holidays. I could not be happier with the whole experience. Kristen is very nice ,as is her family who all interacted with my pup. Her home is in a great location, is clean ( important to me ),warm and inviting and definitely geared for dogs. I got pictures and updates every day. I know Pumpkin got excellent care and lots of love and exercise. On top of that he made a new best friend with Kristen 's chihuahua! I plan on bringing my dog back for daycare once a week or so and highly recommend her. I doubt I could have found anyone better.
This is my 3rd time leaving my dog with Kristin and let me tell you I know he is in good hands with her. We will be going on vacation again and no doubt that my Pikus will be staying with her. Thanks again Kristin!!!
My experience with dog vacation and my reservation with Kristen has been awesome! Kristen provided excellent cate for my new puppy. It was easy to set up schedule. Kristen demonstrated professional and caring service to me and our puppy. keeping me updated with information and pictures of the visits helped reassure he was being well cared for. Based on my experience I would highly recommend Kristen and this service.
This is our third visit with Kristen. The best review I can give is that our dog, Ted runs up to their door and can't wait to be part of the family! We get daily updates and Ted is happy and well rested when we bring him home! Great experience! Thank you Kristen!
Kristin is so helpful! She updated me with pictures through out the day to see what Autumn was up too. Which I loved!!! I highly recommend anyone in the Ellington area to bring your pooches over to Kristin's house!!! I will definitely rebook with her. Autumn is having so much fun and I feel 100% safe and confident in her stay there. Thanks again so much! :)
Kristin took care of Simba very well. Her place is nice with a very good back yard and kennel. Simba enjoyed his stay and I am a happy customer.
Kristen is very flexible and attentive to my dog Jack. I appreciate her care very much.
Kristen is wonderful! I trust her completely with the care of my dog.
Kristen gets the entire family involved in Jack's care. I am very happy with his experience at Kristen's home. Thank you!
Kristin was great to work with, meeting us and our dog, Moo Shu, before his stay. She sent us two photos (he was only with her for two days/one night) letting us know how he was doing. It was nice to know he was doing well and that we could focus on having a good time instead of worrying about Moo. We highly recommend her and will use her services next time we need a puppy sitter. Thanks Kristin!
My dog Jack had a wonderful stay at Kristen's. I felt very comfortable that he was well taken care of and happy :) I will definitely use Kristen the next time I need to get away.
Kristen was a great dog sitter! I wouldn't trust just anyone with my Charlie! She was organized, friendly, very careing. I could tell charlie was in good hands! Thank you Kristen. Dottie Silva
Kristin and her family took great care of our 17 week old high energy puppy for the day... she was happy and playful when we picked her up, and Kristin sent pictures during the day of our dog being loved and having much better than staying home alone!!!
Kristin watched my two dogs for four nights. She was very responsive to e-mails and sent regular photo updates throughout. She has an outdoor kennel as well as taking the dogs on walks. She had them ready to go at the agreed upon time when I came to get them. Both of my dogs seemed fine with her and were happy and healthy when I picked them up. I found the whole meet and greet and reservation process very easy and user friendly.
Definitely pawsome. Kristen was flexible and listened and you can tell she is a great doggy person. My dog only stayed 1 night. I will be booking more days in the future. So much better than a kennel!! Thanks, Kristen
Our dog Ruger loved his Vacay with Kristin and her family. The daily updates and pictures ensured us that he was in great care ! We will definitely have Ruger Vacay with Kristin in the future.
Kristin is PAWSOME!! This was my first time leaving my dog with a stranger and let me say Kristin was very welcoming and made my pooch feel like he was her own during our initial visit. I felt very comfortable leaving him with her for the week while we went on vacation. After meeting Kristin at her home and seeing her interact with my dog I knew would be in very good hands. I will definitely be using Kristin again when we go on our next vacation. Highly recommended!!!!!! Thanks Kristin :)
We are glad that we decided to use Kristin and DogVacay instead of putting Bella in a kennel. She kept us updated with emails and pictures on a frequent basis while we were away on vacation. You would never, ever get that from a kennel! Bella (a yorkie) has always been a shy dog. But seeing the pictures sent by Kristin put us at ease that she was being well cared for. Being in Kristin's care gave Bella the opportunity to co-mingle with other dogs her size and she was able to meet new friends. We will definately use Kristin's services in the future!
Kristin was great! She treated our dog like one of her own & sent a ton of pictures while we were away! We will definitely be using her again in the future!
This was our first time using a service like this. We usually leave our dog with family, friends or at a kennel. Kristin was great! We set up a meet and greet a few days before Onyx's stay. Onyx got to meet Kristin and the dogs that live in her home before her stay. It also settled our nerves as parents. Kristin was very flexible with the drop off and pick up times. She also sent us updates with pictures during Onyx's stay. This was a nice surprise! Kristin’s home was large and had a nice out door kennel for the pups as well. She allowed Onyx to be a “part of the family” while there; which in my opinion way better than being locked up in a kennel for a few days. We will definitely be using Kristin again and we highly recommend her!
Our first experience with DogVacay was a complete success! Kristen was very friendly and cooperative to our needs and, our pup was happy and tired when we picked her up! Plenty of room outside for her to run around and a smaller confined area when times are needed to relax or separate from others.
I would recommend Kristen!
I cannot say enough good things about Kristin, she was wonderful! I needed someone last minute on a holiday weekend and she did not even hesitate!! Ace was well taken care of, and came home happy & tired! I will definitely use Kristin again, and would highly recommend her!!
