Fantastic vacay for our dog, Bear.
I am so thankful I found Kristen on Kristen was extremely personable and removed all doubts about my decision to leave my dog with her for two weeks. She kept me updated with notes and pictures the entire time. My dog was extremely clean, fed and we'll taken care of the entire stay. I highly recommend Kristen and would not hesitate to use her services again.
We had a great experience with Kristen! It was nice that she was willing to take a puppy, and we know Remy had fun. Besides having fun with Kristen's 2 friendly dogs, Remy also got to have some experience with young children, which was a plus. We appreciated the cute pictures she sent to keep us updated. Thank you!!
What a wonderful first experience using dog vacay. Kristen was very nice and kept us updated on Teddy while we were away for a week. It was a relief to know he was in good hands and not stuck in a kennel. I must say he was wiped out for 2 days after returning home! He had such a good time playing with the other 3 dogs! I guess I need to find him a playmate:). I will definitely be using Kristen again on when the need arises!! Thank you for being so good with our little family member!!!
Krisen was so flexible and responsive. WE appreciated her accommodating us and our pup in every way.
Our first Dogvacay was a success! Kristen sent us photos of our dog "making herself right at home"!! Our little dog seemed happy when we picked her up. I would definitely use Kristen to take care of our furbaby again!
This is the first time we had heard of this boarding option and since our dog is only 8 months old I was very hesitant because puppies take a lot of work and attention and I didnt know what to expect or want her to be too much work! I had messaged Kristen about a few concerns and she was great about getting back to me right away. We decided to go ahead and try it. When we dropped Lucy off Kristen invited us in and showed us around and introduced us to her two dogs and let us see how Lucy did around them. Throughout the weekend she sent us texts and pictures to update us which I really loved. When we picked Lucy up we were also able to meet her husband and daughter and they are all very nice and friendly people. Lucy seemed to have a great time and was very happy when we got there. Kristen even said she slept in bed with them one night which Lucy does with us so I know it made her feel a lot more like at home. She had so much fun she slept for almost 2 days after we picked her up because she was so tired from having fun. I will definitely be using Kristen again next time we need to go out of town!
Our dogs were so excited to get to Kristen's house on Saturday morning and Kristen did a fantastic job of taking care of them. She sent us several text messages and pictures during the day so we could see how they were doing. They received lots of attention and play time with Kristen's pups! We will definitely be using Kristen again because we know our pups are very well taken care of there! A very, very wonderful experience.
Kristen is great! She responded to my request very quickly and was just fantastic with the reservation and drop off process as this was our first experience with Dog Vacay. She provided a nice update as to how my dog adjusted to his stay and later sent a photo that allowed me to see that he was being cared for in a loving manner. At pickup she had everything organized and ready to go when I arrived, I make weekend trips fairly regularly and Kristen will definitely be my first choice of sitters.
Kristen did a great job with Josie! Considering Josie wasn't feeling well, she was very accommodating to my requests. She was very flexible with drop off and pick up times. We will definitely use Kristen again.
We left our dog at Kristen's over the weekend while we were out of town. Our dog has a bit of anxiety when we leave her, but seemed to do well with Kristen and her family. We were very impressed with everything and Kristen was so friendly! This was our first time using DogVacay and we will definitely be using Kristen again!
Kristen kept our 13 week old Shih Tzu puppy for a week. We were concerned about leaving such a young puppy but she was wonderful! Our dog was well cared for and healthy. She sent updates and pictures every day and our baby even got a bath! We were very happy with Kristen as our puppy sitter and would most definitely recommend her.
Amy and her husband took great care of my dog, Ben. I'd definitely recommend.
Kristen was excellent! Our dogs adjusted very well with her family and fit right in. She took them on walks and sent pictures of them doing fun things with the family and her 2 dogs. We were worried about leaving them when we went on vacation, but not anymore since we found Kristen. I am completely satisfied with the care they received from her!
Kristen was great! From the the moment we met her and her family including the fur babies, we knew that she was the one we would feel comfortable leaving our maltese puppy, Wally with. Kristen sent us pictures of Wally playing and having a great time with her fur kids, as well as, brief text messages. It was always fun to hear from her regarding Wally's new antics. It was obvious when I picked him up that he had been very well cared for and loved. I highly recommend Kristen. She will be our first pick to care for Wally when we take our next vacation.
