About Kevin

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
ABOUT US:

Hi there! Thanks for checking out our profile. We are two responsible, young professionals who are happy to help care for your dog while you are away on vacation or business, and will treat your dog like a part of our family. We have a 5-year old Beagle-Italian Greyhound mix named Charlotte who loves other dogs. She weighs 17 pounds, and if she isn't playing or eating, she's mainly sleeping.

We started officially watching pups in the Summer of 2015 and have been having a blast doing it. It's been a great experience seeing our dog interact with other dogs and learning the funny quirks of each dog we watch.

When we aren't at home, we're usually out exploring the neighborhood and going on long walks with our pup. Van Cleve Park is just a block away, and other walking friendly areas such as Dinkytown, the University of Minnesota campus, and the Stone Arch bridge are a short walk away.

We do work regular 9-5 day jobs during the week, so we can only watch your dog if they are comfortable being home alone (with our dog) during a regular work day. We limit ourselves to watching only one dog at at time so you can be rest assured that your dog is getting 100% of our attention. You can rest easy knowing that your dog is having a safe and happy stay.

Please feel free to get in touch with us. We are happy to watch your dog and will ensure that your dog is treated with the best of care. And our dog Charlotte loves having a friend to play with. Thanks and hope to hear from you soon!

*A note on drop off and pick up times. Because we work during the day, if you are dropping your pup off on a weekday, you will need to drop off your pup the night before. We are typically flexible on pick-up times however.*

*To previous owners who have booked stays with us, we recently moved from our apartment in Uptown and now live in a house in SE Como, near the U of M. We'd love to continue to watch your pup, so please feel free to get in touch with us if you can make the trip over here!*

OTHER NOTES:

-Dogs are allowed on our bed.
-Dogs are allowed on furniture.
-We can only watch 1 dog at a time.


WHAT WE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR DOG:

To make sure that we are a good fit for each other, we do require a meet and greet in advance to make sure we are a good fit for you and that our pups get along.

Leo's stay with Kevin and family could not have gone better! Thank you!
Mack had a great weekend with Kevin, Caitlin and Charlotte! They were great communicating with us before and during the stay, and we loved getting the picture updates! We couldn't have been happier with the overall experience and would definitely love to stay with Kevin again.

Luigi had great time! The Hosts were more than accommodating. We loved the updated photos. We were even able to meet the other dog before the stay which made it easier for me to hand over when the time came. I highly recommend using this host. I know for sure I will be using them in the future.

Leo was very happy to stay with Kevin and Charlotte (Kevin's sweet dog) for the weekend! I got lots of picture updates. Will definitely book again.
Kevin & Caitlin were very tuned into our dog Hooch's care & special needs as an aging dog. We appreciated the periodic observations, updates, & of course, the photos that were sent while we were away. Would highly recommend Kevin's home as a dog vaycay destination & hope it is available when we need it again in the future!

Kevin was an awesome host for my 12 year old blind Black Pug! This is my first time using DogVacay and I was most impressed by Kevin's sincerity and willingness to accommodate all the special needs of my dog. Thank you so much for taking such good care of my little guy. He certainly enjoyed his visit with you and your dog, Charlotte!

Kevin took wonderful care of my shy/fearful rescue MinPin .Kevin's dog Charlotte was an excellent pal for my dog and helped her stay be less stressful. I appreciated the daily photos showing me that my dog was happy and comfortable. Kevin was very flexible with drop off and pick times. I was worried leaving my dog for the first time since adopting her but her stay with Kevin went really well.

Thank you for taking care of Bruce. Kevin was a great host. He took Bruce for walk and run. Also, they sent daily picture or video. Bruce is looking forward to his next stay.
Kevin was absolutely awesome. He went out of his way to accommodate our pick-up and drop-off schedules. His place is so cute and they have a dog park on premise. And he not only sent us tons of pictures, he sent us a video! I would absolutely recommend Kevin as a dog sitter to anyone. We'll be back if he'll take us ;-)

We've used Kevin before and he does such a great job working with our schedule and taking care of our dog. He always comes home happy and exhausted. Plus Kevin takes multiple pictures of our dog and the activities he is doing.
Kevin was a great host and took great care of Jade! Jade loved staying there which we could tell by the fun photos Kevin sent us while we were on our trip!
Kevin and Caitlin were great! Flexible, responsive, attentive, and sent lots of cute pictures!
Thanks so much to Kevin and Caitlin for watching Teddy (despite him being a bit bigger than the dogs they usually watch). It was great to know our dog was in great hands. We really appreciated the photo updates and the quick responses to messages. You were great!

Kevin was an awesome host and highly recommend to others. He was very easy to get ahold of and promptly replied to all contact/replies. I knew right away that my dog would get along with his well-behaved, easy-going dog and my dog would be well cared for. Its always nice to be able to leave for a trip knowing you don't need to worry about your pup. And Kevin further reassured us with frequent pictures of our dogs interacting together and their outings. My dog came home very exhausted, which is what I love as I usually am too after travelling! We plan to use Kevin for future out of town trips.

I can't speak highly enough about what an incredible experience we had working with Kevin while he watched our dog over the weekend. He was extremely accommodating and flexible with our schedule, he sent great pictures during our dog's stay and was enjoyable to work with. I highly recommend Kevin to anyone who is looking for a great place for their dog to stay!
