About Patti

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Our Sheltie Sam and Red Doberman Ruby love to have company, and we love to pamper puppies whose owners need to be away. We crate dogs at night and when we are out, and have regular play times and "puppy practices" training/play sessions. If you do not have a crate for your pup, we can provide one for a one-time $25 fee per visit to cover the cost of preparing the crate for your precious pup (complete cleaning and disinfecting).

Patti and her husband were very professional and knowledgeable. They seemed to put both daisy and I at ease immediately. Loved their 2 dogs, very good with daisy, who is very skittish mama's girl. Highly recommend
Patti was great with our dogs!
Thank you so much, Luke had a great time!!
Patti and Tom were wonderful. Our almost 9 year old dog had never been boarded before. We were a little worried that she wouldn't handle it well. Patti went out of her way to make Gracie comfortable. She did the same for us too with frequent updates and pictures. If you are looking for someone in the Lansing area, Patti is the person you should pick!
We are so sad Patti moved away from our area! She took great care of Leo, who had a ton of fun with her two pups!
Patti was great, once again. I'm glad I've found a place that my dog is comfortable.
My cockapoo Penny stayed at Patti's last week, and I think she had a great time. Patti was able to accommodate a pretty last minute reservation (my original plans for Penny fell through last minute because my sister and her family all got sick), which I really appreciated. Patti was also very nice when my flight got canceled and so I wasn't able to come get Penny until much later than planned.

Penny is a pretty energetic dog (she still acts like a puppy even though she's almost 4), but she has a bit of separation anxiety, so I was a little concerned about her going to a stranger's home for the first time. But it sounds like she was well-cared for there, and she seemed content when I went to pick her up. I travel relatively frequently for my job, and I would send Penny to Patti's again.
My 2 and 1/2 year old lab Charlee just loves to stay with Patti! Patti is very kind and compassionate and I am always very comfortable knowing that Charlee is in such good hands!
Patti is the best. Our dog was so loved and well care for.
Percy had such a great time at Patti's! She sent updates and pictures while we were away which I found very helpful. Percy had some training sessions with Patti and we notice a big difference with him following commands already! We definitely want to take Percy to stay with "Aunt Patti" again!
Patty is amazing! She truly loves dogs and provided the best care I could ever hope for when we left our dog with her while we vacationed. She asked about my dogs schedule, and individual needs, and did everything possible to make our dog feel comfortable and welcome in her home. Patty updated us while we were away in how our dog was doing and he came back very happy. We will definitely use her again! Patty also is very quick to responding to any questions I have had. She and her husband are extremely professional. She comes Highly recommended from us!!
Patti and Tom love dogs and it shows. This was our second time using their services- They were very patient and loving to my dog, who had a great time. I love that my dog got to interact and socialize with their pups Ruby and Sam. Very positive experience, I recommend her to anyone looking for an alternative to kenneling their dog for a trip.
We can not say enough about our experience with Patti K! Our boy, Valor, loved spending the day with Patti. He came home tired from playing. We added training to our daycare and Patti did a wonderful job. Valor is just a pup but is now sitting, coming and staying for a short time. We have already booked two more stays with Patti!
Words cannot describe how happy we are having Patti host our pup. Our dog doesn't always do well when we are away, but after her stay with Patti, Teffie came back this weekend the happiest little girl. Patti and Tom are so attentive and attuned to dogs, making sure each is comfortable in his or her own way. We highly recommend having your dog vacation with them!
our dog came home very happy - she was so glad to see us but was equally happy to be dropped off at Patti's! we're grateful to have found this lovely host and can't recommend her enough. thank you!
Patti and Tom took great care in understanding and following Micah's routine. I loved receiving updates each day about Micah's day! Having Ruby and Sam to play with was an extra bonus. Micah was sooo well cared for!!! We will return!
Patti is such a wonderful host! We left our dog Amba with her for two weeks - a long time for us to be away from each other. Patti kept us informed throughout the trip, which we really appreciated. Amba has been home for four hours, and has barely lifted her head - she's exhausted from playing for two full weeks! She can't wait to return and we're so glad to have such a warm home for her to go on vacation. :)
We were worried about finding a place for our 1.5 year old golden to stay. No kennel or boarding place seemed to suit the needs/attention required of our charismatic, energetic, pup. Thankfully we found Patti, who was AMAZING! Our pup got along great with her dogs at the meet and greet and we immediately felt comfortable with her. Patti updated us frequently with pictures and messages while we were gone. We appreciated this more than words can express! She made it seem like caring for our high energy, slightly mischievous, attention seeking, and loving pup was a piece of cake - which made us incredibly grateful. We can't say enough good things, thank you Patti, Tom, Sam, and Ruby!
Patti and family were great! My dog slept the whole way home so I know he enjoyed his visit to burn off all of his energy. Thank you again and we hope to see you again soon!
Amba was so well taken care of this week!!! We are so grateful to Patti and her pack for looking after our little doggie. It's stressful to leave a loved one alone, but we were not worried about her even a little as we knew she was in very capable, conscientious hands. Thank you, Patti for your responsible environment and loving home!
Replied to our emails and text messages very quickly. Very friendly. Our dog had a good time there.
Wonderful experience! From the meet and greet to our dog's return home (exhausted and happy) we were so happy to have found Patti. She updated us once which was so thoughtful and reassuring, and I will not hesitate to book again. Thank you!
What wonderful hosts! We will highly recommend Patti to anyone. Our dog gets anxious without us and I can say we have never returned from a trip to find our dog as happy and well-cared for as she was after staying with Patti. What a treat to know our little one is in save and loving hands (and enjoying it!) while we are away.

During your meet and greet you will immediately see Patti is a dog person and truly understands them and their individual personalities.

We loved having Teffie stay with Patti and we look forward to having our pup vacation with them many more times!
Patti's house was perfect for my puppy! I was concerned leaving my very energetic and shy dog with strangers but I was immediately at ease when I first met Patti at our meet & greet! I scheduled two visits back to back. I assume my dog enjoyed his visits as he was excited to see Patti, Sam and Ruby that next morning upon arriving for
the second visit. He must have received a lot of attention and exercise as he was a very tired puppy each evening. Thank you Patti and family for taking such good care of Jagger!

See you again soon!
Patti gave our dog a lot of individual attention and was able to tell us a lot about her upon our return. I believe Patti really cares for dogs.
Chnrlee ' s stay with Patti K and her husband really was pawsome!! They were so kind and caring and the extra training sessions were so beneficial. Patti really focused on the areas that Charlee needs to "work" on and gave me advice on how to continue. When I picked Charlee up I could tell by her behavior and body language that she had been a very happy dog with them. I will definitely have Charlee stay with Patti and her husband again....I feel so comfortable with her there, no worries at all plus I think they developed a very sweet bond!
Patti was awesome with Chimmy and he was a very happy pup when I picked him up!
Very positive experience. Patti was organized and professional while still being hospitable and welcoming to my pup. She sent updates and even a photo here and there of my dog throughout the week to let me know how my pup was adjusting. Patti is very aware of each dog's needs and well-being in a way I am certain most kennels or other pet hotels are not. I would recommend Patti to any dog owner in the AA/Saline area!
My Allie stayed with Patti and her husband and pets for a week. She had never been separated from me that long but they knew exactly how to take care of her. Patti also kept in contact with me during this time so I was assured all was going well. I can't believe there is anyone better suited for my Allie to stay with. She's a Catahoula Leopard dog and is 14 months old so she is curious and excited most of the time. She assured me they totally enjoyed her company. I highly recommend her to anyone!!!
Patti and Tom are caring and loving foster dog parents. My boys had a really good time and came home clean, happy and healthy. I will be booking with Patti for my next vacation.
Our family was so blessed to find Patti on DogVacay! We have a 6 year old dog that has never been kenneled or boarded before and we desperately needed someone to watch her while we went on a long overdue family vacation. Not only did Patti take all the necessary steps to ensure we were comfortable leaving behind our dog but she provided a comfortable home and atmosphere for our LuLu! We hope and plan to continue a long standing relationship with Patti and I know LuLu can't wait for her next visit!! Patti, thank you so much for caring for our dog! Until next time :)
Patti was wonderful with Sasha and gave updates to us every other day or so. When Sasha was clearly missing us, she spent extra time with her to make sure she had the attention she was missing for us.
We could not have been more happy with the care Millie received. I would definitely recommend Patti and DogVacay.
We were concerned about having our little 9 pound Charlie stay in a home with two other dogs much bigger than he. But Ruby and Sam are the sweetest, best trained puppies I've ever met! Charlie enjoyed his time with them, and Patti and Tom were great with him! We felt very confident that Charlie was well taken care of...and were able to enjoy our own vacation knowing he was in good hands!! Thanks Patti, Tom, Ruby, and Sam!!!
My wife and I are new to the area and did not know who to trust with our little Maltese Sophie--especially because she has a lot of energy and seems to get herself into trouble often. However, Patti was the perfect dog sitter. She sent us pictures of Sophie while we were away and she took care of her as one of her own. Since then we have left Sophie with Patti two more times and I can tell that Sophie loves to go back! She plays gets along with Patti's own dogs Ruby and Sam (even though Ruby is about 10 times bigger than her!) We trust Patti with our Sophie and we strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a friendly and responsible sitter.
Patti was an excellent host for our pup. She and her husband were very friendly and their love and knowledge of dogs was obvious.

We could tell when we picked up our dog that he had a comfortable, fun, and relaxed stay. Patti's own dogs were friendly and let Oscar be a part of their pack for the weekend.

I would definitely recommend Patti as a host.
I was very comfortable leaving Jordan with Patti. She is very loving and caring. Patti's home is set up so comfortably for a pet and her two dogs were great pals for Jordan to socialize with. The best sign to me was that unlike all other times I have left her, my dog came home happy and relaxed.

I look forward to contacting Patti again the next time I travel and wouldn't hesitate a bit to recommend her to friends.
Our dog Sophie is really small and really adventurous so she tends to get herself into troublesome situations. So you can imagine that my wife and I were nervous about finding someone to look after her while we were away. We were so lucky to find Patti! She cared for Sophie as if she were her own. While we were away, we received daily emails about Sophies activities and we even got a picture of her relaxing on the couch. Patti and her husband own two other dogs, Ruby and Sam. Although much much smaller, Sophie got along with them just fine. I would definitely recommend Patti to anyone looking for a dependable, friendly, and experienced dog sitter.
Awesome possum!! Patti is the bees-knees. She loves her doggies and they love her back in return. Your dog would be lucky to spend time at Patti's home. Candi
Patti and Tom were wonderful with our Miss Cleo. They loved her and she shared it back with them.
I was given great daily updates full of information, which was beyond the call of duty!
Cleo enjoyed Patti's doggies and that is such fun for her to be able to go on her own vacaytion while we are on ours.
Thank you so much Patti and Tom!
Candi and Miss Cleo
This was my dog's third visit to Patti and I have to say that she is the most responsible dog sitter I have ever had! Santiago was with her for two weeks this time, and when I picked him up Patti took the time to talk with me extensively about how things went, which was very informative and reassuring!! I absolutely recommend Patti. She truly cares about dogs and treats mine as her own!
Our two dogs had a great time at Patti's for the weekend. Patti and Tom clearly care for their dogs and I took comfort knowing my dogs were with people who would treat mine with the same love they give to their own. I would definitely leave my dogs with them again if I needed to.
Patti was very friendly and was able to watch Daisy without too much notice. Her dogs were also very friendly and I was never concerned about Daisy's well being. I will definitely use her services again whenever I am in the area. I highly recommend her.
I feel as though I completely lucked out in finding Patti to care for my dog while I was away! She treated him like a member of the family, was sensitive to the needs I expressed, sent daily updates while I was away, and generally went above and beyond my wildest expectations! This is someone who loves dogs, and it really shows. Thanks again, Patti!
