About Kelly

We are sad to report we are no longer taking in (our home) clients because our oldest dog is ill and needs to keep things routine and stress free. We are still doing visits and other services. (Updated April 2015).

.......


Sympa means sweet or pleasant, and our goal is to have animals relaxed while owners are gone. The house is occupied by myself, my husband, and our Shelties.

I have been involved in training and showing my Shelties since 1997. I have worked for veterinary clinics in the greater Grand Rapids area as an assistant.

Our home is located on nearly 2/3 of an acre right in Lansing, near the Hawk Island County Park and Scott Woods Park/Soldans Dog Park. While we have all that land, only a portion of it is fenced in completely (see pictures). We live on a gravel road so rarely have traffic, it's a quiet neighborhood.

Being a part-time pre-vet student at Michigan State, I realize how tough it can be for a student – or anyone – to afford canine boarding. I offer competitive rates and discount programs as well!

We can even provide a 24/7 webcam where you might be able to catch glimpses of your pet relaxing, for an additional charge.

Kelly was great! Her service saved me in a schedule bind. She promptly updated me regarding the scheduling and after she walked our dog. We look forward to using her services in the near future!
Kelly came to my house twice a day to care for Moty while we were out of town for three days. Moty doesn't get along with other dogs without some warm up time, and I didn't want to risk her being a rude guest in Kelly's home, so I asked Kelly to come to my place to care for Moty. When I met Kelly the day of my trip, I left knowing Moty was in good hands. I loved the pictures, and updates that she sent! When we got home Moty was very happy, her bowls were full and she was munching on a bone! I would definitely recommend Kelly's services to anyone!

We left Berkeley (4 yr old Sheltie) and Wyatt (1 yr old Australian Shepard) for a long weekend with Kelly. Kelly was in good communication and was understanding of our being a bit parinoid when leaving our babies for the first time. We got photos of Wyatt throughout the weekend which was nice to see. No pictures of Berkeley, but he is a bit shy. I would certainly use Kelly again! Our dogs were so happy ;)

My dog's came home stress-free. They must of have had an enjoyable time. It was also nice to be gone and know that my dogs were in good hands.
This was the first time we had left our 9 month old puppy with anyone. He is a very affectionate dog who loves to be with people. I didn't like the idea of leaving him in a kennel. I had never used DogVacay before so the whole procedure was new to me. Kelly handled Bentley well and he seemed very content when we picked him up. She had sent some pictures to us via e-mail while on vacation, but I couldn't open them because we were in Mexico and I didn't want roaming charges. When I texted Kelly to see how Bentley was doing she was very quick to respond and reassured me that all was going well.

Kelly was wonderful! Our baby was very well cared for, coming home happy and healthy.
Kelly was great with my two mature dogs. I would recommend her to anyone using DogVacay.
It was great going on vacation and knowing that Kaya and Kyser were in good hands. Kelly took the time to introduce my dogs to hers and her house, so there was no worries when I dropped them off. They came home Happy and tired. Thanks Kelly
Kelly was friendly and very knowledgeable. She was flexible and willing to work with our schedule. My dogs had a great time and I would definitely bring them back in the future.
Kelly was amazing with my hyperactive puppy, "Puppy". He came home happy and tired :) She seems very knowledgeable and I will use her again whenever I can't take my baby with me!
Kelly did a great job letting Scooter get oriented to her house and get to know her dogs before I boarded her there. Kelli's very knowledgeable about dogs and how to give them excellent care. The informal setting was a plus. I'll definitely use her services again.

Kelly was very flexible and accommodating. She is very knowledgeable about dogs and their temperaments. Roxi was comfortable and well cared for and now has two new human friends...which she prefers because doggie friends just can't give those good ear scratchings and butt rubs :)
