About Kristin

We are a family of 4 who love furry 4-legged friends! We love to host guest dogs for overnight stays. We have large, enclosed backyard, and we spend a lot of time playing in it! In addition to the love and attention your fur-baby would get from me and my husband, we have 2 helpful, animal loving teenagers that love to play with dogs of all ages and sizes.

Last minute plans? No problem! We will do our best to accommodate!

Kristen was our first time using dogvacay and we couldn't be more pleased. Kristen was fantastic with updates and pictures while we were away. I could tell that Lola was very comfortable in Kristen's home and well taken of. We will be repeat clients!

Kirsten and family are fantastic! Easy to work with, flexible, quick to reply and better than all of that...Tuli loves it there!
Kristin was great. My dogs came back happy.
A wonderful visit, as always. Will definitely leave Lenny with Kristin again in the future.

Chloe had her third stay with Kristen and her family. It is a great place to leave your dog and I enjoy my vacations knowing Chloe is in good hands. Thank you so much!!!
Kristen and her family were wonderful from start to finish. We were thrilled to find such a caring and comfortable home for our senior dog, Jewel while we were on vacation. We especially appreciate the attention to detail and pictures and updates that were sent to us during her stay.

We highly recommend this doggy vacay family!!! Thanks again to Kristen, Scott and Anna for taking such good care of Jewel!

Anubis loves spending time with Kristin and her family. I love how they instantly treat Anubis like one of their own family members. We can't say enough good things and will always try to book Kristin first for our future vacations.
Kristin made it so easy for us to leave our dog for the first time. She and her family were open to a meet-n-greet so I could be sure of the comfort for my dog. You can immediately tell they truly love dogs.
Kristin and her family were wonderfully accommodating to add in an extra night to my existing reservation, all done at the last moment.
Our Doberman Ruby has stated with Kristen and her family on a number of occasions. I would definitely give them. Five stars for excellent care and love while our Ruby stayed with them. They are definitely dog friendly and their home is the perfect place for a dog Vacay.

Thank you again Kristin, Anna, & family for making Bou and Mack feel at home. They are so happy (and exhausted) after each stay! We look forward to planning another visit soon!
Murphy doesn't like leaving Natalie!
Murphy slept all day after spending the weekend from all the excitement.
Excellent visit, as always.
Murphy had another wonderful stay!
Kristin and her family are great! This was our first Dogvacay with our first dog. She is 5months old and this was her first time away from us. Kristin was very reassuring for us and helped make this a smooth process. Kristin is very qualified to take care of pets and her family was also very welcoming to our dog. We will definitely use her again!

Pickles had an amazing time with Kristin and her family and got to play with dogs of all very different sizes!! She was very flexible with time given we had to take a red eye flight back. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a doggy babysitter!! 10 is the highest rating I could give but if I had a choice it would be higher!! Thanks again Kristin and family!!!

Webster had a great time on his very first Vacay! Kristin and her family took great care of him, sent us pictures and messages to let us know how he was doing, and were flexible when our arrival time changed a bit.

We will definitely try to get Webster in to Vacay with Kristin when we go when we need a place for Webster in the future.

Kristin and her family give our pets the best of care... I am worry free when 'my girls' are in this home .. ??
Excellent, as always.
As usual, Murphy enjoyed his stay!
Stellar! It is nice to be able to drop your babies off and know they are being loved.
It is so nice to leave your dogs in a place in which they feel loved - and - you know they are safe! THANK YOU!
We absolutely love Kristen and her family and the wonderful personal attention they give to our dog. This is the second time we have used her and will most definitely be using her again and would not hesitate to recommend her to our friends. We were out of town for 4 days and didn't even have to be concerned about our dog because they take such incredible care of her. They even kennel trained after we had not been able to in 8 years...how's that for awesome!!!

Murphy's second stay and it's hard to get him to come home when we picked him up!
Kristin and her family took wonderful care of Buddy! This was his second stay with them and he came home tired from all of the weekend fun. He loves their fenced in back yard where he can run and play. I know he got a lot of love and attention!
It was amazing peace of mind that our boys were spoiled rotten while we are away for our wedding week. They were happy, exhausted and look forward to their next visit. Kristin, Scott, Anna and family are simply terrific!
Kristin was a great host for Maisy! Maisy seemed to be exhausted when we picked her up--which is always a good sign.

Kristin and her family appear to love the dogs they watch like they are a part of their family. Maisy seemed well taken care of.

Kristin did a great job of responding quickly and sending lots of photos while we were away. Thanks so much for taking care of Maisy!

Traveler is a bit neurotic so having a household that has a predictable schedule is important to him. Kristin and family provided that.
Kristin and family took great care of our 11 month old Golden Retriever, Linus. Kristin is very knowledgeable about dogs and very professional. Fenced yard allowed adequate exercise. When I picked him up he was happy and himself and Kristin took time to tell me all about his Vacay. We will definitely bring Linus to Vacay with Kristin and family again!

What a wonderful first overnight with Kristin and family. Mack and Bou came home exhausted and happy. We feel like we have found a perfect home away from home. Thank you and look forward to our next stay in a few weeks!
Our dog Murphy had a great stay with Kristin and family. Kristin sent pictures of Murphy a few times during his stay and we could tell he was really enjoying himself. We would definitely recommend Kristin for your dog hosting.
Our first experience with Dogvacay meant leaving our favorite dog EVER with Kristin and family, while we enjoyed a family vacation. Having never had to leave her, and refusing to use a kennel facility which seems like a noisy jail, we opted to interview Dogvacay host families. Kristin immediately impressed me with her clean environment, welcoming demeanor, and obvious experience with (especially large) dogs. She sent us photos/updates while she cared for our dog. When we returned home it was clear that our dog had been well loved, and she settled right back into her routine within the hour she hit the doorstep! We highly recommend this family as Dogvacay hosts.

Our Doberman Ruby has been a guest with Kristin and her family a number of times. Their family treats the guest puppies with such tender care, like one of their own family. Our puppy always arrives home happy and content. I would recommend this family highly!

Another great visit! Thank you!
Trav seemed to enjoy his quick visit with Natty and family. He came home happy and tired, what more can you ask.
Kristin is a true professional. From the moment we met her and talked with her we felt good/comfortable that our 3 month old puppy would be in experienced and caring hands. She has an extensive background and a comforting way of caring for dogs. It was the first time we left our puppy overnight and I was nervous about it. But thanks to Kristin we felt very good and our puppy, Riley, was well taken care of. He had so much fun I think he hated to come home. Thank you again, Kristin and family!

Kristin and family were "pawsome!" Emails were answered quickly, drop-off and pick-up times were easy to arrange and Kristin and family took very good care of Lenny, while I was away. I would definitely recommend Kristin.
Kristin sent us great pictures and daily updates about our bulldog. They even gave her a bath before returning to us. We will definitely be going back to her and her family. They are so accommodating!
I am so grateful to have found Kristin and her family to take care of Finn while I was out of town.
He seemed very calm and happy when I got home. Kristin has very nice children, and a wonderful setting for caring for pets.
Thank you so so much......

This is the second time Kristin has watched Maggie and we will definitely be back! Kristin and her family are so kind and make sure Maggie is taken care of and always has a blast when she stays there. We are very thankful for Kristin!
Our dog absolutely loved her visit with Kristin and her family! Not only did we feel that Kristin was very knowledgeable about dogs in general, we also felt like our pup was extremely well cared for! :) Kristin was always available and prompt with our questions and sent daily picture updates. We will definitely be booking Kristin again - please seriously consider her for your dogvacay needs!!!

Our experience with Kristin and her family was absolutely outstanding. Our 8 year old English Pointer, Sienna, is a family pet and used to being with people so we were a little anxious about leaving her behind when we took a long week-end. But at our meet and greet, Kristin was so cool and confident, even though Sienna was not on her best behavior with the resident Great Dane. Kristin posted many pictures for us, she looked like she was at home. Also, the host family was so accommodating when, due to weather, our drop off time changed. We will most definitely leave Sienna with them again and would highly recommend them to our friends.

Kristin and her family were very welcoming! They were so flexible with our travel plans and took great care of our beloved Bulldog. She listened to all of our requests and she was very prompt in sending us updates and pictures. We will definitely be contacting Kristin again when we need to leave town. We appreciate all that she did for us. They even let our bulldog sleep in a bed just like at home with us.

Kristin and her family were wonderful with our newly adopted dog. They put him at ease right away and he was very comfortable with them. Kristin was very flexible with drop-off and pick-up times. We would definitely ask Kristin to take care of our dog in the future. So much better care than the typical "kennel environments".

This was our first time using DogVacay and it was a very positive experience. Kristin was wonderful and took very good care of our dog Maggie. We will definitely be coming back!
Kristin and her whole family did a wonderful job with Tucker, and were extremely accommodating to his needs. They were knowledgable and smart about introducing him to the other dogs, and he seemed to have been taken care of very well. I appreciate that they sent me photos of him while on his vacay, it gave me piece of mind. I will have them watch Tucker again next time I go out of town, and would recommend them to anybody.

I can't say enough about Kirstin and her family. Our pooch was well taken care of and had a great time. They could not have been more accommodating to our schedule. I will not only recommend ten to others but will use them again and again.
We recently had the pleasure of having our Doberman puppy stay with Kristin F and her family. Our experience was fabulous! Our puppy was welcomed into their family and we could tell she was loved and had a lot of fun with their dog. Daily walks and lots of play time and family time make a happy puppy! We would definitely recommend this host family! Our puppy returned home happy and content. We hope to have our puppy stay with them again. It provides us much peace of mind to know that our puppy was welcomed into their family!

Kristin and family are great! Hailey loves to visit them! When we get close to their home, she is visibly excited knowing she will get spoiled with attention. Kristin is very quick to respond, flexible and willing to help out on short notice. Great family who will love your dog as much as they love theirs!

Kristin and her family were very welcoming to us and Guthrie. We knew Guthrie would be treated well because of Kristins love for animals. Their Great Dane and Guthrie had a blast playing together. We are so happy to have found Kristin and will definitely choose her over a kennel any day! Thanks Kristin!

I was very impressed with Kristin and her family. They took our dog, Gunner, into their home and he immediately became one of the family. This is exactly what we, and our lab, were looking for.

It is comforting to know we can travel and feel confident that our dog is well cared for.
