Kristin has been very kind and helpful. We trust her completely.
Kristin is great. We keep coming back. She knows dogs and is friendly and organized. Couldn't ask for anything more!
Kristin was great with our 4 month old puppy, and was very flexible with arranging pick up and drop off for the little guy. We are so happy we wound up finding her on Dog Vacay, and definitely plan to use her again in the future.
Kristin was wonderful! Our dog is a rescue and can be very nervous around new people. Kristin and her pets made Bagheera comfortable right away and I came back to a very happy, worn out doggy. Kristin also kept in touch during our trip and sent us many pictures, videos, and updates. She was also very flexible with our trip schedule and extremely friendly all around! I highly recommend Kristin!

Kristin is absolutely amazing. She took incredible care of our dog, Piper, giving her excellent care, play time, and of course snuggles. As a rescue dog, Piper can be skittish, and Kristin really took the time to let Piper come to her on her own terms. She was patient with her during the Meet & Greet, and that lead to an easy transition at drop off. Her two dogs (and Dr. Boyfriend) are extremely sweet, and Piper fit in perfectly. Kristin sent us photos and updates of Piper's time with her through out our trip. This was the first time that we have gone out of town and not been hesitant and nervous to leave our little nugget behind. Kristin gave us peace of mind while giving Piper the time of her life. We will be using her every time we go out of town in the future. This is now Piper's vacation spot.

I really cannot recommend Kristin highly enough.

Kristin was awesome. The dogs had a great time. Her house is super dog friendly and has a great back yard for the pups to play in. When I picked our guys up, they were so tired from playing, they slept for 12 straight hours!

We've already booked her again for Thanksgiving!

Kristin was amazing! Very friendly and flexible with reservations. She sent updates everyday, and some pictures to go with it. She played with my puppy (who constantly wants to play), and snuggled with my 14 year old dog who is completely blind and going deaf. We will definitely make reservations with Kristin again!

Kristin was very accommodating and took willow on a last minute booking. She made me feel at ease since it's the first time I leave my puppy behind. She has 2 wonderful dogs and the bestest cat ever! Willow got along with all of them and was quickly part of the family.
She kept me informed of willows day by sending txts and pictures. And was very attentive to my nervous self.
Also my dog is not completely house trained and she kept training her.
Her place is cozy and has a big backyard for the dogs to run.
I was afraid didn't want to come back home with me! I will be definetely using her in the future.

Kristin is just fantastic. She took care of my boys beautifully. Sent along a few pics of them enjoying themselves. They came home very happy. My younger dog, Walter, is still quite a handful. She was great with him. My instructions for the two dogs aren't complicated, but she did everything as I requested.

Her house is setup really well for lots of four-legged friends. She has a nice grassy backyard that is very well maintained. She kept in touch. I will definitely use her again. Can't recommend highly enough.

As always, Kristin is awesome. She is so responsive and communicative. I love that Wyatt got a bath this time after a long week of "vacation" at her house. He is always exhausted and happy when he comes home.
Kristin was a very kind, enthusiastic host for our dog, Wyatt! I am grateful to have found her and her awesome house of pets. I was nervous leaving him with a cat, as he barks at them on walks, but Dr. Boyfriend is the best! They got along so well. Her backyard is perfect for running around and I think she really helped our dog feel at ease. She is also very easy to communicate with. Thank you!

This was my first experience and it was amazing! It made our vacation most relaxing knowing our dogs were in a sense on "vacation" too! They received Tender, "furry" Love & Care. We received pictures, videos and constant updates that we looked forward to! We already made arrangements for next summer.. So glad we found you! ;)

Kristin is great! Her house was well kept, with a nice backyard for playtime. Her pets made great companions and she took great care of my pup. She'll be my first choice next time I need someone to watch him.
Kristin was amazing. My dogs have never stayed with anyone outside of family members and they acted right at home from the moment they stepped inside her house. Even though this was the first time I used Dog Vacay I felt as though my dogs were in an environment in which they would be well cared for and loved. Kristin kept me informed and even sent pictures to put my mind at ease. I definitely plan to use Kristin again. I should also state this was a reservation made at the last minute in which Kristin promptly responded. Thank You. Thank You. Thank You Kristin.

Kristin is great, she came for a dog meet and was skilled in her dog handling and very personable. She sent us pictures and texts to keep us informed about the dogs' statuses. I feel very comfortable using her and I think that is the most important thing in finding someone to care for your pets.

Kristin was great with Roxy! Her dogs were friendly and got along with Roxy just fine. Kristin was quick to respond and great with communication while I was away... She even sent pictures of Roxy so I could see how much fun she was having. Highly recommend!
