About Kim

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I truly love taking care of animals and helping put pet owner's at ease while they are out of town. I love all animals, and currently have pets of my own, including two dogs.

I now primarily offer pet sitting services at the pet owner's home. I've found that most pets are much more at ease in their own homes and accidents are less likely to occur. I may still accept pets at my house on a case by case basis (meet and greet required to see how they interact with my pets). Rates are also negotiable for extended stays, so please don't hesitate to ask questions!

As we were planning our wedding we ran into the dilemma of "Who will watch the dogs?!" since all of our family and friends would be there. We found DogVacay and were a little apprehensive at first as we had never had a dog-sitter that wasn't family before. Then we met Kim and she put our minds at ease! We did a meet & greet with the dogs and she was calm and welcoming towards them. I felt totally comfortable with her staying at our house for the weekend and taking care of the dogs. She sent pictures every day which was really nice. Thanks so much, Kim, for taking care of our babies and helping in our special weekend!

I'm so happy we chose Kim to care for our dog and cat while we were on vacation. Kim sent us daily updates and pictures and definitely spoiled them while we were away. We came home to two content animals who enjoyed the comfort of staying in their own home. I'd highly recommend Kim for your pet sitting needs. I will definitely be using her again!

This was our first time using dog vacay and we were very pleased! Kim was very thorough in filling us in while we were away on vacation and everything worked out great. We would definitely recommend her and use her again if needed!
This is not the first time we have had Kim care for Buddy, but it was Greg's first time. Needless to say, they were both in great spirits when we picked them up which has not been the case when we have boarded them in a kennel. We will not hesitate to have Kim look after them in the future.

This is my first time using DogVacay and I am very pleased! It's so much nicer having the dogs stay as someone's "house guest" instead of being cooped up in a small kennel cage, and getting daily walks and attention without the exorbitant "extra" costs kennels charge! I was worried how another household would handle my very energetic Labradors but Kim was very experienced and had no problems with them during their stay. I highly recommend DogVacay, and Kim in particular!

Kim was great with Buddy. He was no worse for wear after three days away from the rest of the family. Normally he is upset and moody when he comes home when boarded at a kennel. I think the more natural setting of the DogVacay system is a fantastic idea as it seems to produce much less stress on the animal. We will definitely use Kim's services again when we have to leave town.

This was our first time leaving our dog with a vacay host. He seemed to be no worse for the experience . I'm sure Kim took good care of him even tho he was a naughty dog, as he marked his territory inside her house (so sorry Kim) and slipped out of his leash while she was walking him once. That was not her fault. Buddy can be quite hyper and slippery. Thanks for taking good care of our Buddy. We hope his naughtiness doesn't prevent Kim from watching him again.

Kim couldn't have been any nicer or easier to work with. She requested the dogs' routine so she could make their stay as comfortable as possible. She sent pictures of the dogs assuring us that they were doing well during their visit. While the dogs were happy to see us, I felt comfortable that they had been well cared for.
One of our dogs is a bit reactive and would consistently come home sick when housed at the local kennel. I was concerned about him and also afraid that he might not be a good visitor, but Kim assured me that he was doing fine. I was pleased that he came home happy and healthy!
We will definitely use DogVacay again.

Lucy had a wonderful stay with Kim! Sounds like there were no problems. It was nice to enjoy our weekend while we knew Lucy was being well taken care of! When Lucy got in the car and returned home she seemed as content as could be. I highly recommend Kim and told her I would use her in the future. She even sent pictures of Lucy enjoying her stay!
