About Kim

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a work-at-home professional with a brood of my own. My husband and I have 5 wonderful children ranging in age from 6 years to 13 years old who are eager to play with and love your pet as they do their own. Since I work from home, your pet will be with human company all of the time. Our resident pets, pug Cookie and golden doodle Penny, will be thrilled to have extra canine company!

Our ranch home in Tigard in a dog's paradise. We have over an acre of fenced grassy yard for running and playing. Due to large yard, I generally do not give walks. However, for extended stays, we will go for walks and field trips to the Cooper Mountain dog park. The rest of the time, your dog will have free-roam of the house (less the kitchen) with access to our backyard.

Cookie the pug gets excited to meet new doggie friends but then tires quickly. Penny the golden doodle is a large ball of furry energy and is very playful but gentle. Larger dogs are welcome so they can give Penny the play time she craves! We also have 3 chickens contained in an enclosed dog, er, chicken run.

Our family is passionate about animals and we have volunteered for the Oregon Zoo and Cat Adoption Team. We understand your need for peace-of-mind when you are away from your pet. Our goal is to provide a safe and happy home-away-from-home for your pet. I will send you pictures and email and/or text updates during your pet's stay. Thanks for considering us for your pet-sitting needs and I hope to hear from you!

Rates:
$30 per overnight stay. $50/night for 2 dogs. $20 for daycare. $5 extra per day for puppies less than 1 years old. 10% discount for stays 7 nights or longer.

When we travel, we like to leave our Golden Retreiver with Kim and family. They make us feel confident that Roise is in good hands and that the experience for her is less traumatic and more fun than anything else.
Our dog is very important for us, and knowing she is with a good family is price less.
Thanks Kim!

This was Beau's second vacay with Cookie, Kim & her daughters and we're so thankful to have found such a great family for our little guy to hang with when he can't be with us or extended family! He may have been as excited to see us when we picked him up, as we were to see him after a week, but he was not excited to leave his buddy, Cookie! Thanks again, Kim, for sharing your family & home with Beau.

This was our second time using Dog Vacay and we (and our frenchie Lula) had another wonderful experience. Kim is super friendly and her daughters are so sweet and gentle with the dogs. They have a great backyard for the pups to run and play, and a very nice/safe neighborhood. Lula got along so well with Kim's pug Cookie (don't get nervous about her excited barking at the first meeting, she calms down very quickly). She came home happy and tired. I'm sure she misses them! Thanks again for everything!

This was Kona's second stay with Kim. She walked into her home like she lived there! I am so grateful that we found Kim and her daughters!!
Process was easy to follow. Nice steps to making a reservation with the emails and meet and greet. Host was prompt and experienced. Made us feel safe and comfortable leaving our pet there.
Great little picture recaps of daily events to see how well he was adapting. Great experience, great host family too.

This was my first time boarding my puppy Kona. Kim, her daughters, and Cookie made Kona feel welcome. Kona was very scared at our meet and greet and Kim made sure she was comfortable. While Kona was at Kim's house during her boarding, I received daily pictures and a brief comment about how she was doing. This was appreciated very much. When I picked Kona up she was happy . I would highly recommend boarding your dog at Kim's house. I will be boarding Kona there again soon!

This was our first time leaving our 1-year-old puppy Beau with anyone that wasn't family. Kim, and her adorable pug Cookie, were so welcoming and friendly. We greatly appreciated the pics throughout the week - we're sure we missed Beau a lot more than he missed us, with all the fun he was having!
Thank you so much!

Great experience overall. We had the chance for a meet and greet before committing. We were very comfortable with Kim, her schedule, and house. Cooper and Otis seem to have had a great time and we have all agreed that we would work together in the future.

It was the second time my 15months old Shih-Tzu Max stayed with Kim and her adorable daughters. Kim is a great host. Very flexible, accommodating, and easy going. Her cute pug Cookie will make a great playmate for your dog. We live very close to Kim's house, and every time Max and I taking a walk, he is pulling me toward her place. I highly recommend Kim for your pet as a host.

Our Pomeranian Johnny recently had the pleasure of spending 10 days at Kim's home with her sweet daughters and their lovable dog Cookie. We couldn't be more pleased with the love and attention that Johnny received while we were away. He received loads of love and snuggles, plenty of play time, both with the girls and with Cookie, all in a wonderful and inviting home. We especially loved the photos and notes we received from Kim every few days to ease our own separation anxiety at being away for so long from our beloved Johnny. A wonderful stress-free time for all. Highly recommend this host in all regards.

This was the third time we requested Kim to watch Rascal for us and she did a remarkable job! We would highly recommend her to others. We are very pleased and will return.
We are so happy to have found this wonderful home away from home for our dog Johnny. Kim is easy-going, accommodating and responsive with a perfect property for small dogs to play. Her adorable and playful dog Cookie is the perfect companion and playmate for our happy playful Johnny and we are looking forward to many future playdates. And most important, we feel secure in the knowledge that Kim would be caring for our little guy when we take longer trips away.

This is my first time boarding Harley with Dog Vacay. Although it was only for one night, I can tell that Kim was a good host, she took good care of her pet guest. I will definitely have our pug stay with Kim again.
Based on the photos that Kim sent us everyday, our dog Rosie was feeling happy and in a nice family environment, which was what we were looking for. Kim seems nice and caring and that made us feel confident leaving our Golden Retriever. Rosie seemed bored when back home. I guess she was missing Cookie , Kim's pug. Which is such a cute and mellow nice dog as well as the happiness and playfulness of Kim' s girls.
Thank you Kim! I will call you again next time for sure!

Kim is terrific!! Polo stayed with her for four days. She has wonderful home with a great yard that he was able to roam around. Kim and her family treated Polo like a family dog, he even slept in one of her daughter's room at night. I got daily picture updates and he always looked so well taken care of. He had a great experience and looked like he didn't even want to leave when I came to pick him up. I cannot say enough great things!

It was a pleasure not having to worry about our dog while on vacation. Kim did a great job staying in contact with us as to how our dog was doing. We look forward to having her take care of him again.
Kim and her family made our dogs a part of everything they did. We loved getting picture updates over the weekend and it was pretty obvious they were spoiled rotten. I would recommend her to anyone that is looking for a place to leave their dogs. She has made it a lot easier to leave town and know my puppies are being loved!

We left our 6 month old Golden puppy, "Betsy" with Kim and family for 9 days over Thanksgiving! She was also caring for another Golden puppy at the time so it was the perfect arrangement for Betsy!

Betsy had a wonderful time playing all day with the other puppy and Kim's cute dog! Kim took them on walks and to the dog park as well as playing in the backyard! She has a lovely home, nice and clean in spite of all the canine traffic during a holiday! The dogs ate, slept, and played on a regular schedule, which we appreciated for our puppy.

Kim sent us pictures of Betsy having fun every couple of days which was such a nice touch!

Kim's two adorable daughters also help out and I couldn't imagine a better homestay for any beloved pet!

Thank You Kim!

Kim and her children have been a lifesaver for my
4 1/2 month old golden puppy. Her pug, Cookie, has been teaching her dog etiquette and manners and helps wear her out so that she goes from the "wild child" to a calm and happy puppy. On non-rainy days she is able to romp and play in the backyard and it is very apparent that she can hardly wait to return. I can relax because I know that she is safe and well taken care of at Kim's.

I have sent my 2 month golden retriever puppy to Kim's house a few times. Every time it was a great experience. Juliet came back home tired which is what I expected. And another good thing is there are always different puppies there, so Juliet can be socialized in her young age. When I open mailbox and see those cute photos sent by Kim, I felt it was the greatest reward for my work. I enjoyed seeing Juliet playing happily in Kim's place.

Kim, her daughter and their energetic pug were the perfect hosts for Bradley during his 3-night stay. We missed him for sure, but Kim kept us up to date with photos and notes throughout his stay. We'll definitely use Kim again!
We have used DogVacay before for Lacey, but this was by far the best experience that she has ever had. Kim did an outstanding job of taking care of her, feeding her, and taking her on walks. But what we liked most was the extraordinary photos that she sent to us and the messages that she had with them. This made it special and we felt closer to her during our time away. We would recommend Kim to all other dog owners as she did an amazing job. Thanks, Kim!
