About Kim

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
A happy home = happy pups! And that's how we roll. Our home is filled with love, laughter and happiness.
My husband and I have been dog owners most of our lives. We have been dog sitting for over 20 years. We have a large fenced-in back yard for the dogs to play in. Dogs are able to sleep where they prefer. We ask that you please provide proof of rabies and all other shots before your dog(s) arrive.
We have 2 boys that help us take care of our dogs. They are 14 and 16 years old. My 14 year old is a natural with dogs. They follow him everywhere!
We are only home all day during the summer months and when there is no school for my two teenage boys. During the school year, we not home for about 6 hours during the week. Our rate is $32 per day (not per night) for ONE dog. $16 for EACH ADDITIONAL dog per day.
We DO NOT charge for an evening drop off the night before.

Wow! Excellent experience with Kim and her loving family. Our 5.5 year old boxer, Bella, is always a nervous wreck when we leave her and it usually begins days before we leave. This was the case with our most recent trip and our first time working with Kim so we were nervous about how Bella would do. Especially since we left the country for 11 days. I let Kim know how Bella was acting super anxious and she wouldn't eat the day before we dropped her off. Kim appreciated this info and did everything she could to make Bella feel at home. She even slept with her!!! Kim sent us so many emails with videos and pictures of Bella with updates on how she was doing and how she interacted with her other visitors and her family members. We loved getting so many details and pictures. It eased our mind our entire trip and we felt so comfortable that we made the right decision to entrust Kim with our baby girl! We will book with Kim again in a heartbeat! Thank you so much Kim, I cannot say enough good things about our experience.

Kim's family was amazing with our little Nacho! They sent pictures regularly and kept us updated. Our little dog was as happy as can be and even became especially close to their son. We will definitely have Kim dog sit for us again!
First time and couldn't be happier. Our 2 yr old is full of energy and Kim and her family provided a great environment for him to be himself! Will definitely use again!
