About Kelly

22 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello, my name is Kelly and I cannot wait to take care of your pet. I live in a spacious one bedroom, one bath. Your pet will have plenty of space to walk around, lounge and hang out. Your pet will be spoiled with netflix marathons, air conditioning and lots of love.

For pups we will enjoy nice walks to all the different parks Portland has to offer (I live less than 5 minutes from The Fields Park, which has a doggy area :)), we can sit by the riverside a bit, or stroll through the pearl district.

I cannot wait to host your pet, and give him/her the best home away from home experience!

Kelly was amazing!!! She was on time and gave us regular updates and photos. This was our first time away from our puppy and felt 100% comfortable with Kelly in our home and with our pup. Thank you, Kelly!!!
Kelly was very flexible with us about pick up and drop off and was clearly very prepared and aware of how to make a dog comfortable!
Awesome,...our dog had a great stay!
Kelly is amazing! Accommodated us on very short notice, sent updates and took very good care of our baby! Thank you!
Kelly was great! She watched my dog sluggish for 10 days and my dog came back happy.
Kelly was amazing with Sunny from the first time she met her. We met at a park that is 5 min away from her apt. Usually, my dog Sunny jumps on people when she gets excited but she just knew to not jump on Kelly. I could tell just by the way Kelly was with Sunny, she had a lot of experiences with dogs. When we went up to her apt to drop Sunny's things off, there was another dog that made me a little bit worried since Sunny can be a bit territorial but just seeing Kelly manage the two dogs made me feel comfortable and safe to leave Sunny with her. Through my trip, Kelly was kind enough to send me pictures and updates that helped with missing my dog. I think Sunny had a great time with Kelly too and I would definitely book her again when we go out of town.
Kelly was a fantastic host for Evelyn! I will definitely be booking with her again. I could tell my dog really took to her.
We had Kelly stay at our house to watch our 2 dogs and 2 cats for 8 days. As far as being with the pets and sending us picture updates she was great. Before we left for our vacation we made sure the sheets were freshly washed, and the house was left very clean. Although we did not expect her to deep clean the house, we did expect that she would clean up after herself. The pets water bowls were left filthy and nearly empty, and the bottom of the litter box was covered in urine leaving us to believe that she was just surface scooping the box. We are very disappointed with this experience and will most likely not have someone stay at our house again.
Kelly did a great job with my vizsla! She kept me updated daily and was very active with him, which he needed. I'll be using her in the future.
Kelly was awesome and sent pictures and updates daily on Gabby's experience!
This was the first time my husband and I had left our dog behind on vacation and we were definitely acting the parts of nervous parents. Kelly was able to accept our DogVacay request at the VERY last minute, and her response and communication time was fantastic. Upon meeting her it was immediately apparent how good she was with dogs and our Puggle, Herbie, seemed comfortable with her right away. During our 4 days away we received text and picture updates of how Herbie was doing and about the various walks/activities he was participating in. When our return flight was delayed, Kelly was very flexible with our pick-up time and assured us that it wasn't a problem. It was pouring down rain when we finally came to pick Herbie up and he came down to meet us strapped up in his little rain jacket and ready to go - happy, healthy and well-vacationed. Thank you again Kelly, for taking such great care of our little guy - we'll definitely be contacting you the next time we need a dog-sitter!
Kelly was a dream to work with! Communication is very important to us. Kelly was prompt with responses both to my initial inquiry and during our trip. We reviewed all the important details before the trip, she got acquainted with our dog and cat and made them comfortable, and she ensured our pets had everything they needed. During our trip, she sent us unprompted photos and updates to give us peace of mind in knowing the pets were doing well. Definitely would recommend and would work with again.
Georgia had a great time with Kelly, We had a last minute trip and Kelly made it easy to meet her at the local dog park where our dog got to spend some time over the weekend while we were away.
Kelly was so great. From being flexible about a drop off time to coordinate our work schedules to being even more flexible with the pick up time due to a delayed flight, she was on top of everything and Jazz was super happy when I got to see her again. Kelly is in a great location for walks along the waterfront and Fields Park and was just so perfect. I'll definitely be reaching out to her again!
We really appreciate Kelly for taking care of our little Rambo on such a short notice. She was super friendly and very loving towards him from the very beginning. We felt very comfortable leaving Rambo in her care in such a clean, warm and very welcoming home. Kelly was amazing and kept us up to date sending us pics while we were gone. We would recommend her to anyone needing care for their pet. Once again, Thank You Kelly! :-)
