About James & Kelly

We have a very pet friendly home with a big fenced in back yard. We have a sliding door that we leave open in the summer and are letting Lance (our black lab) in and out of constantly when it isn't nice enough to be left open. Lance loves having playmates as his buddy Morgan passed away about 2 years ago. We play ball in the backyard daily and we are happy to take the dogs on walks if that is what you prefer.

We are comfortable administering medication to your pup, orally and even injections. VCA emergency care is about 1 mile away and they are excellent, we can personally attest.

We both do work weekdays, Kelly goes in early and James goes in late so the dogs are home alone for a max of 6-8 hrs. Since we are gone during the day we do come home and play for as long as it takes with the dogs to make sure they are good and tired to keep everyone happy. On weekends one of us is home for most of the time so we get to play a lot more.

When a dog stays with us, they become part of the family. We try our best to make our home their home!

We didn't have good experience with James & Kelly. Our boy had his eye scratched and they claimed he did it on his own which we know he wouldn't be able to do that. Now, he has a permanent scar which causes a blue eye. I would make sure to check if they own any pets and do a meet a greet beforehand to ensure your pet and theirs get along.
This was the second time we had our two middle aged labs stay with James and Kelly. I would highly recommend them..their dog is very friendly, they have a huge fenced backyard, and they were great about sending periodic updates and photos. The dogs came home tired and happy. Thanks James and Kelly!
Clifford had another great time! He loves spending time with Lance. Kelly and James do a great job of ensuring all the dogs get along with each other.
Kelly and James are the best hosts we could ever ask for - we feel so lucky to have them close by. Getting picture updates of Ellie is so wonderful while I'm away, but even if I didn't have them I wouldn't worry for a second. I know Ellie is treated like a part of the family and loves every second she's there. It's been three days since her 11-day stay and she's still exhausted from the fun she had in the fenced backyard. It's truly as if Ellie gets a little vacation too :) Can't wait for her next stay!
James and Kelly were wonderful with Padrig. He slept all the way home and then fell asleep once we got home, so I'm sure he was busy playing.
Our dog had an awesome time and got along well with their dog, Lance, who has almost the same personality and quirks as our dog. James and Kelly were great and very accommodating! We'll definitely be taking our dog to them again.
Our dog Max seemed comfortable right from the door opening. We sure felt comfortable leaving him in such a nice and safe place. I would recommend this dog loving couple to anyone!
James, Kelly and Lance (the dog) were all great! Champ seemed to have a great time with them (again) and was standing by Kelly's side wagging his tail as to indicate "we're not really going to leave now are we"? By all estimates James and Kelly have a wonderful environment for dog watching and really seem to be in tune with what's going on. Many Thanks.

Another great stay. Our lab was happy as can be and clesrly well taken care of. Thanks again James and Kelly!
My dog, Ellie, just had a great vacation with Kelly and James! I'm a nervous dog-owner and Ellie is a bit anxious (wonder where she gets it from...) and leaving her with Kelly and James put me completely at ease. I got a few pictures and updates which were great and Ellie was nice and tuckered out when I picked her up. We're planning Ellie's next stay for next month!
Kelly was great and our dog was very happy staying with James & Kelly. From the time we did a meet and greet to picking up after our flight home everything was great. Not a concern the whole time. Thank you for giving us the peace of mind to enjoy our vacation rather than having to worry about our dog while we were gone. Would recommend without hesitation.
Amazing experience. I recommended james and Kelly to every pet owner who loves their pet. They have a lot of space for ur pet and a beautiful backyard. They also text me with update and pictures of my pet. Jax was so happy there and And when he got home too. Im leaving my pet with James and Kelly for my next vacations next year, if they are available. : )
I met with James & Kelly and they both seemed like nice people. I left on a trip for a couple weeks and they were nearby. I had my brother pick up my dog the day before I arrived back in Seattle, and he told me he had never seen my dog, Travis, happier. I will be using them again if I ever go out of town.
This was our first stay with Jim and Kelly and our dog did just fine and had lots of fun with their dog Lance.
Lucy loved staying with Kelly and James. They were able to put my nervous, spoiled large dog at ease and she was treated like a member of the family. I would definitely recommend their home for your dog. They will be the first ones I ask for if I need a place for Lucy again. Thanks Kelly and James. You made my get away much easier.
James & Kelly were Awesome!
My boy boxy had a good time with James and Kelly the 4 nights he spent there. They were very understanding when I had to change the day of pick up and sent me pictures of him playing. I would use them again.
I returned to pick up Oscar, to find him in the backyard playing ball with Kelly and Lance, the Lab, and obviously enjoying it. They did a great job, especially considering Oscar is just a puppy, albeit a big one. Thank you, Kelly!
