About Kristen

23 Years Experience Caring For Dogs


( Currently suspended in home boarding )
We are a family with a year round rotating pack of pups. We've been hosting through Dogvacay since August 2013. Most of our pack are repeat pups who have become quite comfortable in our home. They look forward to their vacation with our family as well as with other revolving pack members. I know exactly how a particular grouping will get along before they even arrive - the evolution of my pooch pad exceeds my greatest expectations. I feel so blessed to have arrived at this level of dog husbandry and be able to call it my job.
More on the pooch pad: We live in a dog-friendly walkable and hike-able community. Our guest pups live with us in our home as would our own. We provide basic obedience reinforcement, meals, treats, supervised socialization, walks, play, and rest time. I find a well exercised and socialized dog is content and happy and this makes for a balanced household.
Spring temperatures allow for ample walks! I may walk in the morning with my youngest in the stroller or on my back. We may also walk or hike in the afternoon or early evening when the whole family can go. We also have a fenced yard big enough for even a Great Dane to run chase and play in. The yard provides many daily opportunities for fetch and exercise with the other pups.
At home, my guest dogs and I keep each other company throughout the day. In my home office, I often have resting dogs gathered around my feet.
Before leaving our home I make sure all pups are safe. Many dogs are free to choose whichever cozy corner best suits them, others may require separate rooms and high energy or chewers may be safest in an appropriate sized crate.
My husband, I, and three boys love caring for dogs in our home because of all the great breeds and personalities we encounter as well as the long-term furry friend we are acquiring.

Kristen is wonderful! Both our dogs started to sing as soon as pulled up in front of her house, and they ran inside - they couldn't wait to go in and play with the other dogs. Kristen sends daily updates with photos. We can't say enough about her.
Kristen and her family are great! My only problem is I'm not sure Mali wants to come after a visit! Kristen takes great care to exercise and play with Mali while she's there, she treats her like her own and Mali is thoroughly worn out when she comes home. It gives me such peace of mind to know she is well cared for when I take long trips and even for just a day of fun, I know she will have a great time. I highly recommend Kristen!

Love, love, love Kristen and her family! When we can't take our dog with us, it's a great comfort to know she's hanging with a great family!
We love boarding with Kristin - and our dog Alena loves it even more! Alena is always happy to enter Kristin's welcoming home, and shows none of the anxiety she feels at other traditional kennels, even if well run. We are so happy we were referred to Kristin!

My dog Dude ,absolutely loves going to visit Kristen and her family. We can't wait to get to the door. He seems to be very attached to her children. When he gets home after pick up he goes through somewhat of a depression because he misses them!
Kristen was awesome and our dog came home from a day at her house clean and happy! Would def book again :-)
Things I loved about this host:
1) Kristen wanted to be sure that our dog was current on his vaccinations and she made time for us to visit her home and let our dog sniff around her yard.
2) Kristen allows the dogs to wander freely in her home and only kennels them when she leaves the dogs alone
3) Her children seem to delight in their pet guests and photos are sent regularly to confirm this
4) This is definitely a home that loves animals!

Kristen was wonderful! This was our first time using Dog Vacay and we were very pleased. Highly recommend!
Kristen's family really makes your dog feel like their own. Great place for dogs to stay!!
Kristen was wonderful! We are very thankful for her amazing care for our dog. She went above and beyond to make him feel comfortable and at home! He had a blast with all his new furry friends! Very grateful to find a dog sitter with so much care, compassion and education for animals. Many thanks Kristen!! :)

Kristen was great with Lucy. I love that she did a meet and greet and asked so many in depth questions about her. Kristen sent updates and pictures each day. We are so glad we found Kristen and we will definitely use her again. What a positive experience. Lucy seemed happy and healthy when we picked her up!

Kristen and her family are the best. Hannah's tail starts wagging when we turn the corner onto their street!
Kristen is so amazing! Annie absolutely loves going to visit when we go out of town. She considers Kristen's home her second home. She is so well cared for and gets so much attention while we travel. I love knowing that Annie is in good hands when she is not with us.

There are not enough words to express my thanks to Kristen for how wonderful she is with my dogs and what a wonderful person she is.
My pups are always wagging their tails when we get to her house. I always know that they are receiving the best care.
Kristen is the best!

Maggie had a great stay. I was updated with pictures and notes often which we really appreciated.
Disappointing...I submitted the reservation request on Friday and I never received a response and then I submitted a reply on Monday to Kristen to find out the status since her calendar showed availability for the weekend we submitted the reservation for.

The reply received was surprising as she told us that because her little boy is 1 years old now, is walking now & doesn't have proper footing and could be knocked over. Kristen went on to say that our dogs were "high energy" and she was not comfortable accepting our reservation. I can completely understand that reason however it's only been a couple of months since she last watched them & when we picked them up from her home when she last watched them, Kristen invited them to return in the future and everything seemed fine.

Our dogs are English Labradors (3 yr & 6 yr old) and we've never had complaints with anyone else. Our dogs are not "high energy" at home so I'm not sure if her home environment (having a 12 & 7 year old boys) have something to do with it but seems strange to me & honestly very unprofessional to keep us waiting 4 days to let us know that our dogs are no longer acceptable.

Pumpkin had a great time at Kristen's house. She loves being around the kids and other dogs. A nice fenced yard to run around and a safe space inside for the dogs. Will definitely use this vacay again!
We love Kristen AND her family! They are all dog lovers and treat our Niko so well. As soon as I turn on to their street, he starts whimpering because he can't wait to get out of the vehicle to go see his second family. I have recommended her to all of my local family and friends.

Kristen is wonderful keeping us updated about our dogs. She makes sure they exercise and loved. She provides a loving enviroment in her home. Sheis the best!
Kristen was amazing! she kept us updated with lost of pictures and out dog really enjoyed her family's company while we were away.
Bailey has been spending vacay time at Kristen's for 2 yrs now. Kristen and her family are awesome. Bailey loves spending time with them and is treated like a little princess. I love getting pictures while we are away of what Bailey is doing.
Buster had an awesome time at Kristen's. He feels at home there and is well cared for. It's so nice getting updates, pictures, and knowing that Buster is being loved, played with, and happy to be there. It is truly a vacation for him!
Was hesitant when I dropped them off as they hadnt been in a boarding situation. Kristin sent me texts and photos letting me know how they were doing which really set my mind at ease!! Great first time experience, My husband said they were great when he picked them up. What a relief to have found someone I can rely on!!!

My girls were so happy to see Kristen. They had a blast! I know they are in good hands and very safe!
Kristen and her entire family are the best. My dog really thinks their home is her home and she is Queen. Such a better choice than boarding at a facility where they are crated and bark the entire time and come home sick. Kristen is invaluable to me.

Kristen took great care of Max & Maggie! I really appreciate how she texted photos of them while we were away and it looked like they were having a blast with her and her family. Kristen is very knowledgeable about dogs so along with the photos, I didn't have reason to worry about them at all. We will definitely look for Kristen to watch over them in the future when we need her help!!

Kristen was interested in making my dogs feel comfortable and at home. She was interested in their routine and what she needed to do for them while we were away.
It was great getting the pictures and the positive comments about the girls.
Kristen is very kind and attentive to our dogs as well as the other pups in their home.
We had no worries while were away and plan to contact Kristen in the future to board our pups.
A++++

Kristen is absolutely awesome! We have been using her regularly for almost 2 years now. She and her family treat Bailey like she is one of the family. We love the entire family and appreciate how they care for Bailey so much!!!
Another successful vacation for Buster. He met new friends, played, had fun and got lots of exercise!
Kristen's home and family were very welcoming and made Cody feel right at home. The picture updates were appreciated and adorable. I look forward to another opportunity for Cody to go on vacation. :)
As always, Tug had a wonderful time. Kristen is awesome and treats each dog as her own. Highly recommend if you are looking for your pooch to stay that truly is a home away from home! They might not want to leave!
Buster had an amazing time with Kristen and her family. It truly was a vacation for him. He felt right at home and got to play with another dog that was vacationing as well. He also had a lot of play time with Kristen's boys. He's a people dog, so this was great for Buster! When we picked Buster up, he was very content and happy. Not stressed at all. He will definitely be vacationing with Kristen and her family again!

Always amazing, every time! Cannot beat this experience for your dog - love!
Cody loves to stay here! Kristen is great at communicating and sending pictures. It always feels good knowing that Cody will be loved and well cared for while we are gone.
Excellent experience! During the initial meeting Kristen asked questions that made me feel she had my pet's bets interests as her priority. Kristen kept me informed of how Mavis was doing, multiple times during her stay. I felt very comfortable leaving Mavis in Kristen's care. I highly recommend Kristen and Dog Vacay. Thank you very much.

Kristen really cares about our dog, I feel. She seems to work really hard to make him happy while he is in her home.
Kristen is the best. Also, love her boys.
We love the way Kristen's family takes care of Westley. Her boys love him as if he was their own. We get pictures while we are gone of them walking and playing with Westley. Kristen is always willing to take extra steps to take care of him if needed. His diet is different from most dogs and she has no problem adapting to his routine as needed. We really appreciate everything Kristen and her family do for Westley and would not know what we would do without her. We can go away knowing that Westley is well taken care of.

Our dog loved his visits and will definitely look forward to returning!
I was so thankful that Pius could stay with Kristen and her family during my business trip. He had a really good time! When I returned to pick him up he was running and playing around in a group of five other dogs - I can tell that he definitely loved that. All family members were so kind to him and I liked so much getting pictures and messages what they were doing. I can only strongly recommend that place and I am also looking forward to get Pius there a second time. Thank you, Kristen!

Hopps and Barley loved Kristen and her family. They were totally spoiled.
Before their stay we did a meet and greet - this way the dogs got to smell and see the yard and house, as well as Kristen and her family. Kristen asked many, many questions about the dogs to make sure she understood their needs, habits, etc. This was a wonderful experience and the boys are looking to going back.

We love getting updates and pictures while we are away!
We love the convenience of booking with Kristen, and our dog loves it too! Our pup is always so excited to jump out of the car when he realizes we are there. I know he is being loved and well taken care of while we are away. I couldn't ask for more!

Once again, our Niko had a fabulous visit with Kristen and her family! She gives him the special attention that he needs, as well as setting limits for the dogs. They are so well cared for, and it shows. When we turn on her street to drop off our dog, he immediately knows where we are going. He starts wagging his tail and whining to get there as soon as possible. He runs right up to the door and greets the family as if they are his own. This makes me feel so comforted leaving him when we are out of town. We have also used Kristen for day care, and he comes home tired and happy. Thank you for everything!

Again another wonderful visit with Kristen. Tug loves being at their house, and she does such an awesome job taking care and loving the animals as they are her own! I am and definitely will be a repeat customer! Love her and her family!
We wish we had found Kristen sooner! Our 13 year old Boykin Spaniel stayed for 2 days. We knew he was comfortable and well cared for, we did not worry about him as we normally do if he is at a kennel. Kristen was great with him.
Kristen was great! She was very organized and thorough getting to know both myself and my dogs. Her home is dog friendly and so is her yard. It's obvious she takes this job seriously which helped to put me at ease leaving my babies with her for a week! I'd leave them with her again next time we go away!

I could not have asked for a better place for Tug to stay. Kristen is very professional and truly treats your dog as her own. She is great at keeping in touch and sending you pictures and updates of your dog. She has no qualms with any additional instructions as most kennels will charge a tad extra if you need something to go above and beyond. She took Tug places with her family as well as walked and played with him. Kenneling your dog for long periods is just not good for the well being of your dog, regardless of it being a kennel free environment or not. Here your dog stays with Kristen and her family in the comfort of their own home. They are not relegated to certain parts of the house and ignored. Your dog is their dog. I could write a novel about Tug's stay, but I will tell you this: do not hesitate to use her. It literally was the best experience I have had with finding a place for Tug while I went away. Tug loved it so much, I really don't think he wanted to come home!

Kristen and her family are great. Plenty of walks and plenty of updates during the visit. This is the best way to "board" your dog if you have to leave town.
My dog has always struggled at the typical "boarding kennel" - she would come home a wreck and sleep for a week. Bunny fell in LOVE with Kristen and her entire family. She is so calm now that we've picked her up - you can tell she got a lot of play, love, and good nights rest all at the same time. Kristen's frequent texts and picture updates made our day and put our minds at ease. I am so happy that my search for a boarding facility is over - Kristen has a customer for life with us, that's for sure!

Our pup, Luke, has had several vacays with Kristen...he has always had a blast. Kristen, and her family, are exceptional...highly recommended!
Couldn't be happier with Kristen's services! Highly recommend.
ANNIE stayed with Kristen several days and I think she may have had the time of her life. She had so much fun playing with other dogs and playing with Kristen's family. Kristen sent me updates and pictures everyday and even gave me great doggie advice when I picked her up. I would not even hesitate picking Kristen for our next vacation. We loved her and you will too.

Kristen is great, she adjusts very well to any situation. Will definitely use her again. PS, her sons treat the dogs as their own which makes them feel at ease.

Usually Bosco is excited (/hyper) when we come back from a trip, but instead he was mellow! I could tell from the daily texts and pictures that he was getting plenty of attention and exercise, but seeing him relaxed and pooped out was a surprise! We'll definitely be back!

I adore Kristen and her family and so does my Sophia--miniature Schnauzer. The family is very loving and includes Sophia in many of their activities.
Kristen and her family always do a great job. Kristen always keep you informed with how your dog is getting along sending text messages and plenty of pictures. It often looks like our dog is having more fun than we are!
Kristen has been fantastic while we were traveling. She updated me regularly and came up with some excellent, creative solutions when our dog displayed anxiety and started to mark. I know Sirius was in great hands and received lots of extra love while we were away!

Great experience with Kristen, we felt completely comfortable leaving our dogs with her family while we were out of town. Loved the pictures that were sent and it was clear that they had a great time. Would absolutely recommend Kristen to anybody!
Niko had a blast, and was very tired the day after we picked him up. We love that he was able to have so much exercise and attention. :)
Kristin and her family do such a great job. Lots of updates so you know how well your pet is getting along.
Kristin did an excellent job taking care of Sullivan. He needs lots of love and she gave him that and more. He is home-happy, tired and content. I love the photos that she sent each day to let us know that he was having a great time and adjusting well to his stay.
She also gave me a detailed account of his stay which was nice to know. I felt really good knowing he was in a caring environment with a great caring family.
We will definitely call her again to take care of him.

I can not say enough good things about Kristen and her family. Kristen sent daily pictures and it really helped since it was the first time we ever left our puppy with someone. Our dog had as much fun as we did and I loved that Raleigh had children and other dogs to play with at Kristen's house. We already booked Raleigh's next stay. We will also be utilizing the day care option soon so we can be sure that our puppy is well socialized.

We were so happy leaving our dog Sampson with Kristen. He is a 14 year old beagle foxhound mix with cancer and we were worried about leaving him just anywhere b/c of his age. Kristen provided us with pictures of him looking comfortable and happy at her house and we got lots of updates via text throughout the day. We highly recommend a stay at her house! Thank you Kristen!

Very well educated, friendly and caring dog lover. I unconditionally trust her to take care of my best friend.
Cody loved staying at Miss Kristen's house! She kept him busy with walks and playing with other dogs. She kept me in the loop every day with pictures and texts, which made me feel so much better. When our house was not finished on time, Kristen was able to accommodate Cody for an additional night. I would highly recommend her and we will definitely use her again!

Sam had another wonderful stay with Kristen and her family. Sam insists we will definitely come back again!
Kristen S. was AWESOME! It was our first time leaving our 2yr old morkie for a week. Kristen sent daily text with pics of our little boy. He was well taken care of and had a ball playing with friends:) We had a GREAT experience!!
Kristen was great with Dempsey. She was sure to get all the details prior to me leaving him. He felt right at home with lots of playmates, children and other dogs. I will definitely use her again.
This experience was fantastic from the meet & greet through the overnight stay. Kristen and her family are terrific, and Sam loved his stay with them. He got plenty of playtime and attention and we got texts and photos to keep us informed. We will continue to bring Sam here for his vacations!

Wonderful care for your pet while you are away from home. Could not be more relaxed about leaving Baxter.
Eddie had a fantastic time with Kristen and her boys. She was frequently texting me photos and stories of his daily adventures. I knew he had a great time because he came home from the weekend and SLEPT very soundly. You can tell Kristen is a "dog person" and is watchful of their behaviors and quirks. I can't imagine sending my dog to a kennel for days. Thank you -- he will visit again!

Kristen was great, she texted us everyday with updates and pictures. Wes must have had a great time as he came home exhausted from playing.
We left our almost 2 year old Beagle puppy with Kristen today.

From the beginning we felt reassured that he was in good hands and that he would be well taken care of. Kristen was also nice enough to give us an update with pictures during the day.

We would not hesitate to leave our puppy with Kristen again.

Our dog Charlie has lots of health issues, therefore we have a hard time traveling with him and often struggle finding someone to watch him. I am so glad to have found Kristen! She and her family are so caring and have treated our dog like their own. They've gone the extra mile to really get to know him and how best to care for him. We can rest easy knowing he is in good hands and getting lots of TLC! And on top of all of this, Kristen is flexible and reasonably priced!

Kristen and her family were amazing!! They took such good care of Niko, and we will definitely leave him with them again. We received updates and adorable pictures throughout the weekend. Kristen was very thorough at the meet and greet, so I knew this would be a good match for our boy. She is very knowledgeable about dogs and their behaviors. However, we were thrilled with how well they took care of him. I can't thank you enough!!

ps. I know that Niko misses you all. He was very happy, and tired from all if his play time and exercise. I have already recommended you to several of my friends.

Kristen and her family are awesome. Being new to the area we were hesitant about traveling and leaving Bailey with people we didn't know. Bailey is so comfortable with Kristen and is babied just like she is at home. It is so nice to be able to go away and know that Bailey is being so well cared for. I would recommend Kristen to everyone!
Read More...
Living in a new area we were hesitant to arrange travel away from home because we were worried about leaving Bailey with strangers. Kristen has changed all that. She is the most caring person and Bailey loves to be with her and her family. She is babied as much there as she is at home. So, so happy we found Kristen and are able to comfortably travel while Bailey is with her vacation family.

We had a great experience with Kristen!! She looked after our pup and even incorporated a little bit of training! Kept us updated and comfortable while we were away.
Kristen is a fabulous dog sitter. She has a natural love for animals and gives them the very best care. I highly recommend using her for your next trip away from home. Sherri
Kristen and her family were awesome with Scotty. When I used to pick him up from dog boarding he would be stressed and frantic. He was so calm and relaxed I wasn't even sure he wanted to come home! I'm extremely pleased and will definitely be using Kristen in the future.

We are so blessed to have found Kristen! This was the first time leaving our dogs with someone other than family. Kristen is great. From our first meeting I knew Davinci (9 year old beagle) and Luigi (4 year old cavachon) were going to have a wonderful time. Kristen made them feel right at home. I received daily emails and pictures of my two boys which absolutely made it easier. I am so happy we found her!

Lovely family, good home to place a pet, very understanding and good with communications, very loving.
Kristen and her family are wonderful. If Ellie, my dog, could talk I'm sure she'd ask when she could go back! Walks, runs, playing with other dogs, two young boys to play with, love and attention. What more could a dog ask for? And for me? Daily communication and knowing Ellie was safe, happy, and very well cared for. A win/win situation.

We had a great experience with Kristen and will look forward to booking a stay with her in the future.
I couldn't have been happier with Caleb's stay at Kristen's house. Before finding DogVacay I had visited one of the better boarding facilities in the area. I left in tears knowing I had to find an alternative. I have found it in DogVacay......and it seems I've hit the jackpot with Kristen and her family.

Kristen and her family were incredible! Roscoe, our 10 month old Basset Hound, had such a loving & fun stay. I felt very comfortable leaving him for our weekend trip & enjoyed the updates I received while we were gone. Kristen went above and beyond to make sure Roscoe was taken care of. I would recommend her any time & will definitely be using her again soon!

We had to leave town for 10 days and left our puppy with Kristen. She was great! She kept me updated often and sent pictures too. Ruby had a great time playing with the other doggy guests and frankly I think she didn't want to come home! Definitely recommend to others and we'll use her again!

Kristin was incredibly awesome!!! A true professional and she put me at ease with taking care of my rescued Pit Jake. From our meet and greet Kristin took time to truly understand Jake's needs to ensure he had everything he needed while I was away. Jake isn't an easy dog - he requires a lot of patience, caring and love - and Kristin provided him everything he needed wonderfully :-) I HIGHLY recommend Kristin for your dog sitting needs!!

Kristen was absolutely wonderful. She is so caring. I loved that she sent me a picture during Bailey's visit being held and snuggled by her son. Bailey's kind of place. Thanks for allowing me to have a worry-free vacation!!! :)
Kristen is a person who loves dogs! My puppy was very happy to be with her and I will use her as my new sitter here on out
Excellent. Very nice family and good care. Sophia has a great time.
What a great experience. Kristen has a wonderful family and all get involved with taking care of the dogs and the boys look forward to taking the dogs for walks. We received several text message updates. Kristen called at one point to verify medication dosage when our Hannah had a allergy reaction. We'll be reserving a time with Kristen and her family the next time we go out of town when we can't take Hannah.

Kristen was an excellent host for Griffin while I was at a wedding over the weekend. I was relieved to find an alternative to boarding and felt very comfortable leaving Griffin with such a welcoming, organized, and knowledgeable host. Kristen responded quickly to messages, and was flexible when I needed to drop Griffin off earlier than planned.

Kristen was wonderful! She truly loves animals. She took excellent care of Chewy and sent me updates with pictures! We enjoyed our trip knowing our dog was having his own weekend getaway!
Bergie loved his stay with Kristen! I just hated the thought of him sitting in a kennel cage for 5 days so I was so happy to find DogVacay. Kristen (and her boys) gave my puppy all of the love and attention that he could stand! Bergie was recovering from surgery on a broken leg and Kristen was wonderful about gating the stairs and keeping him calm (so hard to do with a puppy). She even did his physical therapy exercises with him. She also kept me updated with a few text messages and pictures daily so that I wouldn't worry about him.
I would highly recommend Kristen as a pet sitter.

Very happy with Kristin and her wonderful family. Pretzel was very well cared for while I was away for work for two weeks. She was fed regularly, walked regularly, and Kristin always updated me on what was going on with her. Pretzel had a flare-up of conjunctivitis and she went so far as taking Pretzel to the vet to get her ointment for her eyes. Pretzel got to play with lots of other dogs and Kristin sent me lots of pictures of Pretzel playing with them. Overall I couldn't be happier with my experience with Kristin. She really is great at this and has a wonderful environment for the dogs to live in. Highly recommend her and will be using her again next time I go out of town!

I picked up my dog earlier today after spending 5 days with Kristen and her family. Our experience with them was great. Even more than great!
They are a very nice and friendly family and you can see how much they love dogs. They even gave her a bath and brushed her which we haven't done in a long time. I got daily updates and pictures of her, so I didn't worry for a minute.
I got my dog back all happy,clean, soft and relaxed !

We would definitely use their service again and I recommend them to all of you dog lovers.
