About Kimberly

28 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Lots of attention and love at the Love Shack. We also have a big screened in porch with a view of a large koi/swim pond and waterfall. So our guests can nap on the porch with a beautiful view of nature in safety or they can relax in a huge bay window in the sunlight watching the birds and squirrels. Lots of blankets, toys, and beds are right at hand.

My husband and I work from home so we are here all the time with your fur babies.
When going outside, everyone is wearing tags, collars and leashes whether going potty or just going for a long walk in the yard. No one is ever off leash or unsupervised outdoors.

When we are in the kitchen we have plush furry beds for guests to hang out on while watching us cook. Then in the evenings, there is lots of lap time, cuddling, and kisses.

Nightime is big fun, we all pile in our big king size bed to watch tv and have treats before bed. Guests can sleep however they prefer from sleeping on the couch, in a crate, at the foot of the bed, in their own bed in our bedroom floor, in our doggie playpen, or even in the bed with us and our yorkies.

We work to accommodate our guest's needs and the owner's preference. For example we had a very small dog with serious cataracts and we didn't want any chance for her to fall off the bed. So we made her a bed in the doggie playpen and put it right by our bed so she was safe and secure but still not alone.

The only treats I give are the ones you bring or if you approve, I also have organic baby carrots and organic "made in the USA" treats. Our drinking water is 5 stage reverse osmosis filtered so it is safe and yummy for your baby.

I am very educated about home toxins, toxic plants, foods toxic to dogs, etc. We do not use any pesticides or poisons on the lawn or toxic chemicals on the floors or carpets.

I also have experience caring for sick dogs, those recovering from surgery, older dogs, and dogs with vision problems.

I will care for your fur baby with the same love, attention and care that I give my own two yorkies.

We have a 5 lb yorkie Guinness that is always up for play, and a 5 lb yorkie Boo Boo that is 13 years old so he is a great napping partner. We also have a cat named Sookie Stackhouse. She is indoor/outdoor type so she usually stays outside more when we have guests because she is shy. All 3 of them are ok with our fur guests.

Two dogs at one time are ok if they are from the same family :) I find that everyone gets along better that way. I have 1-20 pounds as the weights of doggies I accept, but usually I prefer 1-15 pounds. But if you have a special situation, just let me know.

June 2016 I completed certification for Pet Tech First Aid & CPR from Pet Tech the first international organization that teaches this certification.

Our last name is Love. So our friends call our house "The Love Shack". Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I'd love to take care of your fur babies for you.

We could not be happier with our experience with Kim. She treated our dog Kody spectacularly. She kept us updated with pictures. When we boarded him at a kennel he would come home in a lethargic state. Not the case this time. It was obvious he had been in a loving environment. Will be booking with Kim next month.

Kim and her husband Jeff were absolutely AMAZING and took excellent care of my pups Sammy & Sassy! Kim kept me updated on how my pups were doing each day and made sure to send plenty of pics and videos :) I would definitely book with Kim again & would highly recommend her to others!

Kim and her husband Jeff treat our dog like it is their own. She is a very timid, skittish dog but feels right at home with the Love's and their sweet dogs Guinness and Boo Boo.
