About Kelly

38 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
If you need care at your home within the next 14 days, or at my home in 15 days or more, then I would be more than happy to help! Currently only accepting previous Guests for boarding at my home within the next 14 days. If you have never contacted me before and need care at my home within 2 weeks please contact someone else that can accommodate you for a vacay on your desired date(s). I will remove this paragraph when I am able to accept new Guests for bookings at my home with less than two weeks notice. Thank you for your understanding and I look forward to serving you and your pets!

Experienced with many breeds, tiny or huge, lazy or excitable, aggressive or submissive. Experience with cats, horses, cows, goats, birds, fish, hamsters, guinea pigs, snakes, pigs, frogs and shrimp. You name it, I can probably take care of it for you. Rat Terriers, Pekingeses and Shih Tzus to Great Danes, Doberman Pinschers and Pit Bull Terriers, no problem. Labrador Retrievers, Australian Shepherds, Greyhounds, Beagles, Bulldogs, Labradoodles, no problem. Over 7 acres fenced to run and play, alone or together with my own dogs (one of whom I trained and got certified as a Human Animal Bond (HAB) Therapy Pet) who LOVE to play with other dogs and are up to date on all vaccinations and on monthly heartworm and flea preventative. Have experience with puppies, geriatric and disabled dogs, as well. Additional fees may apply for non-house trained, aggressive or those needing special handling. Can take your dog on walks or runs, as well as do basic obedience and trick training, bathing, and grooming. Can provide pick up and drop off as well as extra large crate for nap time. I can triage health problems and ensure emergency medical care is given if necessary. I can administer medications and conduct basic wound care. Remote surveillance ensures that I can monitor your pet in the event I need to leave the house. I can provide references from past clients that I have dog sat for at their house and/or boarded their dog at my house.

A Meet-n-Greet is required before hand so that everyone is comfortable with any future arrangements. Due to previous Meet-n-Greet no-shows you must have a Reservation Request for one night's boarding in order to confirm a Meet-n-Greet. You may submit a Reservation Request for the remainder of your desired DogVacay after the Meet-n-Greet.

Holiday rates are considerably higher than the listed base price but discounts still apply. Discounts for more than one pet, for long term stays as well as loyal repeat Guests. Additional discounts for military, Wounded Warriors and Gold Star Families (proof required).

I currently offer very limited doggy daycare (in addition to overnight boarding)! I’d be happy to keep your pup entertained while you’re away for the day.

Note: I love cats and offer cat sitting as well as dog sitting! I’m happy to stay at your house or visit your kitty while you’re away.

Final Note: I know that many of my clients drive well over an hour each way to ensure their dogs have Paws-itively Purr-fect Petcare with me. I now temporarily have two locations to serve my guests and their pets. I have a nice home on a 7 acre horse farm in eastern Vass, in addition to my home near Buffalo Lakes / Carolina Lakes, to serve a larger area and provide even more personalized options, with or without other dogs, especially for those that need more off leash running space. Please be sure to specify which location you prefer. First booked, first served for choice of location. The option will be removed from this profile once the smaller house is sold or rented out.

Found out about a week out that I had to go out of town, and my flight times weren't ideal (leaving around early on Thursday, and getting back in the evening on Sunday), but Kelly worked with me so that I could pick up my dog later in the evening on Sunday, despite a personal trip she was packing up for.

My dog (as usual) was so happy and tuckered out from playing in the back yard all weekend that she immediately knocked out on the drive home, which never happens.

Kelly's care for my dog and excellent customer service makes her my hands-down #1 choice for watching the furriest member of my family.
I absolutely love bringing my dog to Kelly's place because I trust her and know that I can leave my dog here without any issues, questions, or concerns. 100% peace of mind with Kelly.
I absolutely love bringing my dog (Penny) to Kelly's place. Not only is she extremely friendly and easy-going, but Penny always has a blast!
