About Kirsten & Emma

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We would love to take care of your pet! We love animals...especially Emma! She must be one of the biggest animal lovers in all of Wake County. She loves all kinds of pets. Kirsten grew up with a dog...from the time she was 3 until she left for college Her dog was her best friend (and you probably can relate to that!). She and her daughters used to have a dog named Tigger whom they loved very much. He passed away a few years ago after a full almost-17-year life! Emma was instrumental in taking care of Tigger. She fed him, gave him water and walked him. She will do the same for your pet. We will treat your pet as if they are our own. Our house has a nice size back yard for your pet to play and room to run around inside, too. We hope you will let us take care of your pet!

Kirsten and Emma made me feel at ease leaving our dog for the first time! Loved receiving the pictures and videos. Our sweet pup was worn out, so I know he had a great time and was well taken care of! We will absolutely use them again!!
Our Molly loves visiting with Kirsten and Emma! They are always very professional and easy to work with. It is obvious the pets under their care are well loved and cared for.
Kirsten & Emma were awesome. I had no doubt that my Lily was well cared for.
This was the first time I left Emme here. Kirsten & Hanna took such great care of her! I got a report card, texts, & pictures. They are just beautiful people. We will definitely be seeing them again. Thank you for loving her.
Emma & Kirsten are amazing and I'm so glad we found them. They were so caring and made sure our husky stayed happy and healthy. We got daily update pictures and notes, letting us know how she was doing. We were afraid she'd enjoy it so much that she might not want to come home. I highly recommend them and look forward to using them in the future.
Kirsten & Emma are the best! Anytime I leave our spoiled dog, Sparty, with them I know that he is in good hands and is happy.

They are super quick to respond to any request and often work with my changing drop-off/pick up times. They send awesome pictures of Sparty so I know he is getting the same kind of love he would be getting if he were home with me and my husband.

I would highly recommend them and don't like to consider anyone else when we need to travel.
Thanks Kirsten & Emma for taking such good care of Shadrak. We especially liked the updates and pictures you sent, keeping us inform on how he was doing. We could tell from his smiles that he was getting plenty of attention, just the way he likes it. We will definitely be bringing him to you again when we need to travel.
Kirsten and Emma are the best!!! We have been taking Cami there for over a year and a half, and she always comes home happy and well taken care of! We never have to worry about her as we know she is loved and cared for, so therefore we can enjoy our time away. Thanks Kirsten and Emma for all you do for us!!!
Kirsten and Emma are amazing!! They were super nice, very flexible, and they loved my pups. They have a comfortable house is a nice little neighborhood. They only keep two dogs at a time, so my guys were able to get the attention they crave and were very happy while they stayed there. Kirsten was very accommodating with the reservation and my travel plans. I highly recommend their services, and I will for sure be re-booking with them the next time I need boarding for my guys.
Leaving our dogs with Kirsten & Emma is always easy and the dogs clearly have been treated well during their stay.
We're so glad that we found Kirsten and Emma!!! Cami has stayed with them before, and we can totally relax on our trips because we know Cami will be well taken care of. They send cute pictures and updates. Cami stayed with them this time for nine nights. Cami comes home HAPPY!!! When we have boarded her at other places we can tell that she has been stressed out when we pick her up, but not with Kirsten and Emma!!! They are the EXCELLENT care givers, and we're so happy and blessed that we have them to care for Cami.
This was our first time leaving Macie with anyone other than family. Kirsten & Emma were AMAZING! They made it so much easier by posting pictures daily for us to view. Each one had a cute little message attached to it as well. I am so thankful to have found an alternative to a kennel, or what I call a "dog prison". The meet and greet session really helped calm my nerves before leaving my little fur baby girl. They are such nice and caring people. I can't imagine anyone not feeling comfortable leaving their pets with them. After arriving back home last night, Macie was happy and worn out, which was a good sign. She was even snoring after just a couple of hours being home. Thanks again DogVacay and especially Kirsten & Emma! You are SIMPLY THE BEST! LOTS OF LOVE FROM MACIE!!!
We felt very comfortable leaving our dog with Kirsten and Emma. They took great care of her!
Simply put, Kirsten and Emma were AWESOME! Our big dog had an awesome time this past weekend and we got plenty of pictures and updates. He was a very happy and tired dog when he got home...all signs that he had a great weekend. We will definitely use Kirsten and Emma in the future and highly recommend their services. :)
It was our first time leaving Cami in the wonderful care of Kirsten, Emma, and Hannah!!! We honestly can't say enough about the great care and love Cami received when she was there. They sent us daily pictures and updates that made us feel very comfortable about leaving her there, so we could enjoy our time away. If your looking for a safe, loving, and caring place to leave your pet, they will do a fantastic job for you!!! We have been boarding our pets for over 20 years, and these ladies are definitely the best we have ever had!!! Emma even wrote a report card for Cami so we could have details of her stay! We feel so fortunate to have found them, and would highly recommend them!!! Thanks ladies for the AWESOME CARE!!!
We were so happy to have left Mylo with Kirsten and Emma for our weekend away! This was our first experience leaving Mylo with anyone other than family and we were really happy with the entire experience. Kirsten sent lots of pictures and texts throughout the weekend to put our minds at ease. Mylo came home happy as a clam and can't wait to spend time with Kirsten's family again soon :)
Kirsten and Emma are just wonderful caretakers for our dog. We can go away feeling confident that she is in good hands and is getting the attention and care she needs. The daily updates and photos are nice too. We can't recommend them highly enough.
Seana Jean had another great vacation with Kirsten, Emma and Hanna. We cannot say enough about the excellent care Seana receives and the daily pictures brighten up our day. They care about Seana and her food, pills and routine are handled perfectly. She comes home happy and healthy. It truly is Seana's home away from home.
Bruiser had a wonderful time with Kirsten, Emma, and Hanna. We received updates and all of these ladies were so sweet. Bruiser also enjoyed playing with the other dogs who were visiting. I highly recommend! We couldn't be happier with this family and the special care they took of our dog.
We love the care Colby gets from Kristen and Emma. We are return customers and plan on continuing the relationship every chance we get.
This was our first time to leave little Ginger with a sitter because she suffers from severe anxiety. We were quite impressed with Kirsten and Emma. They have a lovely environment for the dogs and it is obvious that they truly care for them. The first night we were away they sent pictures which made us feel very good. We picked her up 2 days later, and were very happy with the care and love she received. We will definitely be back.
We had the fortunate opportunity to leave our Goldendoodle, Mac, with Kirsten and Emma for two weeks. I knew immediately at the "meet and greet" that they would be perfect hosts! They loved on Mac and spoiled him as if he was their own. They did an outstanding job posting updates and pictures on the DogVacay site and Emma even wrote a personalized "report card" on Mac's stay. It was adorable! Kirsten and Emma always responded to my communications in short order and that indicated to me that they take their responsibilities seriously. I would highly recommend them!
Seana Jean's 2nd stay with Kirsten and Emma was terrific and she comes home happy and healthy. We have found the perfect second home for Seana and it takes all the stress out of leaving her behind. The pictures are most welcome and we know Seana is well cared for. We have already booked two more stays and would highly recommend Kirsten and Emma to care for your "best" friend.
Our 13 year old Westie had a great time with Kirsten, Hanna and Emma. She came home happy and healthy and we were thrilled with the service. Seana needs to take 4 pills during each day and they followed our instructions perfectly. We loved getting the pictures of Seana Jean on vacation and we received quick responses to our texts. In short, we couldn't be happier and already have Seana booked with Kirsten, Hanna and Emma 3 more times. What a relief to have found Seana her home away from home.
Kirsten and Emma take such good care of Libby. We have peace of mind knowing that she is in good hands and is having a great time. We are so thankful for finding them.
Thanks again, I feel very comfortable when Colby stays with Kirsten and Emma. I also really enjoy receiving the email updates and daily pictures.
Great! Hannah, Kirsten, & Emma are the BEST!
Absolutely the perfect setting to leave our dog Colby. Loved the pictures we received almost every day. We have a reservation for next month and look forward to many more in the future. Irv Z
Suzie had a great time playing playing with everyone in the yard. Will be happy to book with Emma & Kirsten again.
We had to leave Watson while we went on a cruise and did some shopping around for dog sitters. As usual, Watson was hesitant when we went to the meet and greet, but I was very satisfied. By the time I got back to pick up Watson, he wasn't sure whether he wanted to go with me or stay and play with Emma! He enjoyed his stay there and I enjoyed the pictures and notes they had for when I got back. I would definitely recommend these two as pet-sitters :)
Kirsten, Emma, and Hannah are GREAT - going the extra mile to accomodate when doggie guests overlap. Enjoy cute photos they send too. Comforting to know Teddy is in such loving hands. I find Paws Place the perfect home away from home for Teddy!!
We have never left our "fur baby" with anyone other than a friend but unfortunately our usual babysitter was unable to watch our dog when we went out of town recently. I checked out Dog Vacay and met with a few different people before picking Kristen and Emma. I will say I'm very glad I found Dog Vacy and Kristen&Emma. They were very nice and very responsive. While we were away, they sent us cute picture updates daily and upon our return gave us a report card which I thought was great! It appears our Kona had a good time lounging around on his vacation and it definitely put my mind at ease while we were away. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a dog sitter!
Kirsten and Emma took such good care of Libby. And they even made me a Mothers Day card from her! Who else would do that! The whole family is so nice and we are so grateful for them to look after our precious pooch.
Our yellow lab loves staying with Kirsten and Emma. They are so good to her and she feels right at home when I take her to stay with them. She just walks right in and is a happy girl. We are really blessed to have found them!
Kirsten and Emma have been wonderful. This was Bradley's second time there. We were happy to see that he wanted to go there when we arrived. We will definitely continue to take him there.
Paw's Place is Teddy's home away from home. He is a happy camper there, and Kirsten, Emma and Hannah provide great care and lots of love! They are also flexible and accomodating - I needed to add extra day to original reservation & it was welcomed with no problem. I am so thankful to have Kirsten, Emma and Hannah here for Teddy's care. :-)
Kirsten and Emma are fantastic! We left our dog with them for 8 days and was so grateful for the care they gave Max! They sent us photos of Max everyday and that was really nice it made us feel very comfortable to know Max was getting great care. We will definitely be using Kirsten and Emma for all of our future vacations.
Kristen & Emma were great. They provided great attention & cared for Hobbes like he was their own. They are the best!
I'm comfortable being away when Teddy is with Kirsten, Emma, and Hannah-knowing the care they give him is top-notch! Highly recommend Paw's Place!
This was my first experience using dogvacay and I was a little nervous about leaving Bug with someone I didn't know. After the meet and greet I knew I had nothing to worry about. Bug was treated like a member of the family and I they sent picture updates during my trip which also helped put my mind at ease. I highly recommend Kirsten & Emma - this is a great place for your pet, they will get lots of love and attention!

Thank you so much for treating Bug so well - Bug says she is sorry about going potty in the house.
We left our dog with Kirsten and Emma for the weekend. She had never stayed with anyone else before. They were so good with her even though she gave them a little trouble. I would definitely recommend them to everyone. You can tell they really love animals and take care of them as if they were their own. We felt very comfortable knowing she was in their care. We also liked the one on one attention they gave her.
Kirsten, Emma, and Hannah are great! Teddy had a wonderful time & I was VERY comfortable with him left in their care. Very, very sweet & loving family! I've already been thinking of the next time I'll need them to be Teddy's home away from home :-)
Kristen and Emma did an amazing job with Hershey. Extremely caring and loving. Thank you so much for allowing me to have a woory free vacation!
Kirsten and Emma were great. I was nervous being away from my furbaby for the first time, but he was in capable hands. They have a good-sized fenced in backyard that he loved. He came home happy and tired which is always a plus. I know he had a great time and I look forward to future vacations knowing Kirsten and Emma are available to watch my dog.
Our two dogs stayed with Kirsten and Emma for 10 days while we went on vacation, and they had a great time! Our younger dog had some serious anxiety when we left her because she's very attached to the family, but it didn't take her long to get very comfortable at her new home! They were happy to see us when we picked them up, of course, but they weren't at all traumatized by our absence and they didn't have any problems transitioning back to their routine.

They have a big fenced backyard for the dogs to play in.

Kirsten and Emma sent us lots of pictures of the dogs while we were away, which was great.

I would absolutely recommend Kirsten and Emma.
