About Kelly

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a retired clinical psychologist who is a long-time dog owner and wish to expand my dog daycare and training business. My business partner is my neighbor who is a retired businessman and political figure who has worked several years for dog foster and rescue associations. With the two of us the dogs will never be left alone at any time. I currently have one fabulous dog, Bailey my rhodesian ridgeback mix who is the absolute best dog I have ever had! He is very calm, loves canine company and is a longtime graduate of doggie daycare. We recently lost our beloved rottweiler and Bailey is ready for some fun company! We will have lots of scheduled playtimes as well as free access to my very large totally fenced in backyard. Also I live alone in a large 6 bedroom home so there is plenty of private space too - if that is your dog's thing!

Kelly is outstanding! She has watched my dog Jax multiple times. Each time I pick Jax up from her house, he appears both happy and exhausted from playing all day. I highly recommend her.
This was the first time my dog stayed somewhere other than my home and I was a bit worried how he would react. My dog was so happst Kelly's that he was reluctant to come home with me on pick up day. The room set up, large fenced/in yard and the love that the dogs are shown was fabulous. I will continue to take Brewster to Kelly when needed and on some days just to run and play with other dogs. Well worth the price!
Kelly watched my 2 dogs for a very long weekend. The whole experience was great, from the initial contact to the meet and greet to the stay. Kelly kept me posted on how they were doing during the stay so I had no worries. They came home happy and exhausted (thanks to Kelly and her super resident dog helper, Bailey).
Kelly was wonderful! It is clear she has a lot of experience with dogs. We boarded our dog for a week, and Kelly gave him the exercise and attention he is used to getting. The updates and video she sent us showed that our dog had a lot of fun with Bailey. We will definitely board with Kelly again.
Kelly and her dog hosts were wonderful! She has a great yard to run around in and trails nearby for walks. My Reggie came home so tired and content from his stay with Kelly that I had to wake him up for breakfast the next day! I will definitely be sending him back again next time I'm out of town. Highly recommend!
This is the 2nd time that Kelly has watched our dog, and she did a great job again. She cares for our dog like her very own, and knows what she is doing. We have no hesitation leaving our dog with her. We fully recommend her. Her dog Bailey is such a great host dog as well! Thanks Kelly!
Our dog, rocko, is a lovely miniature schnauzer, calm and lovable. He is just a good soul overall and enjoys playing with other dogs. I must say that from the first time Kelly met rocko, she cared for him and welconed him into her house. He felt at home from the getgo and seemed to enjoy being over her house, he especially seem to enjoy bailey's company. Therefore, even though she knows how I feel about her services, I want to let everyone know that Kelly is the best dog sitter I've ever come across. She's caring, thoughtful and always willing to do her best. Rocko is an important member of our family and until I met Kelly i had never left him with anyone because I was always worried that nobody would take good care of him. Kelly thanks for your services.!
I would not recommend Kelly for overnight stays, particularly if you have a young or energetic dog because she does not know how to handle them. We arranged for Kelly to watch our 6 month old puppy for a week while we were out of town. Kelly was a little distracted at our meet and greet, but very loving and she assured us that she had raised multiple puppies herself. She did not express any concerns about caring for our puppy. Approximately two hours after I dropped off my puppy, however, Kelly contacted me and indicated that she could not calm down my puppy so my puppy could not stay with her as planned. Luckily I was able to find another arrangement with people who had no problems with my puppy, but in the process of sorting everything out I almost missed my flight. If you use Kelly I would strongly advise doing an overnight trial run and/or having a very solid back up plan.
Kelly was great with my nervous dog. She gave him his oral medicine as directed and the dog had a nice time. I would recommend Kelly again and plan on using her in the future.
Kelly has a very good envrionemnt for tacking care dogs with nice fenced yard and her own dog. She was very flexible and accommodating, especially when we could not pick our dog until late evening due to traffic. Our dog seems had time of life playing with other dogs as well!
We had a great experience with Kelly. She was very flexible and our dog came home happy and tired. We will use her again.
Kelly was great to work with, very responsive and accommodating. I felt comfortable leaving my dog with her, knowing he would be well cared for. He had a big fenced yard, walks and lots of love. And he slept in her bed along with Kelly's dog. I will definitely use Kelly again for our next vacation.
Kelly was more then I had hope for! She responded to me quickly prior to booking her services and came to my house to meet with me and the dogs. She is truly passionate about caring for pets. Kelly provide daily texts and pictures updating me with the dogs happenings. She went above and beyond what I expected and I am so grateful that I was able to find, connect, and hire her for her services. I will book her services again without hesitation.
Thank you Kelly for walking Toby. We will use you again. Kelly was very personable.
Kelly is great! She cared for our elderly dog over a weekend and provided exceptional service. She was sensitive to our dogs nervousness and took good care of her needs. She sent 
us photos to keep us informed of how things were going and I would recommend her to anyone.
