About Keri

We are an active family with a 2 year old Golden Retriever and a 6 year old Papillon. I am a graduate of Triple Crown Academy for Professional Dog Trainers and worked for the Academy for 3 years. I have experience with a multitude of breeds, sizes, temperaments, and dog behaviors. If your dog likes water we also have a dog friendly pool. Exercise may include, but is not limited to, swimming, walking, jogging, or playing ball. We are located just 2 blocks from the hike and bike trail that leads all the way to Lady Bird Lake. We exercise there regularly. I also believe in mental activities as well as physical activities. These may include, bones or interactive toys like a stuff-able Kong or Starmark product. Puppy playtime will also be encouraged provided the dogs are a good match and will be 100% supervised at all times.

I chose Keri to take care of my Papillon largely on the basis that she has a Papillon, too. After meeting her, however, I’m sure I’d let her keep him even if she had a mountain lion. Keri is sweet, friendly, smiley, knows a lot about dogs and probably a lot about furry animals in general, and left me with confidence that my dog was in great hands. She’s also good at lying when you ask her if your dog was any trouble. She just smiles and says no, even if you know that can’t be true. A+, plus an extra plus for her smile. So A++.

Keri was so wonderful. We came into Austin on a Wednesday to prep for our wedding that weekend. Keri Kept our pups for us the first night we arrived so we could get settled and get to know our girls. She was kind enough to send us cute pics and videos of them playing with her pups and relaxing.

We wanted our pups to be a part of our wedding but did not what them to have to stay the entire night. Keri came and picked them up from the wedding venue after the ceremony, waited for us to finish pictures, and then took them back to our rental home. She fed them and made sure they were settled for the night.

Like most parents are, we are very protective and Cautious of who we leave our girls with and but with Keri we knew they were taken care of. Had it not been for her our pups would likely not have been able to be a part of our special day. We were able to have them there with us, and then know they were home safe and relaxing and that we didn't have to worry about them.

We would highly Recommend Keri, our 2 pups seemed totally comfortable and happy with her. And in addition, we got to meet her 2 pups which are both 2 of the most well behaved dogs I have ever seen. She is a pro!

Keri was wonderful! We left our two dogs with her over the weekend. She sent me plenty of updates and seemed to truly care about all the ways to keep our girls happy and comfortable. Our girls seemed worn out from their little vacation when we got them home. Keri was so easy to work with and we will definitely use her again the next time we take a weekend trip!

Keri is fantastic! We setup a meet and greet and I'd let her know that I was looking to board Dora with her for the upcoming weekend. We had to move the meet and greet and she'd had other people contact her for the same weekend. She asked them to wait until after our meet and greet. I thought that was very cool of her- because I could have said no for a million reasons.

When my dog (a Havanese) did stay with Keri- she seemed to have adjusted beautifully. Keri's two dogs are incredibly well-behaved. She sent me pictures of how well my dog was adjusting- and kept me updated. Little things like this go a long way.

I have used dog boarding kennels before- but I might be hooked on DogVacay (and Keri- if I can get her everytime!) since now my little baby doesn't have to stay in her crate all day and has people around her during the night as well.

Thanks Keri and DogVacay!

Keri was a fantastic host for our dog Cubby. She was very flexible with our dropoff and pick up times and it was very clear she was a capable and caring dog lover. She kept in contact with us, sending photos and videos. When we picked up Cubby, he was very happy and energetic and could tell he had a great time. I highly recommend Keri.

Keri was a GREAT pet sitter for our 7 year old yellow lab. She was very flexible in scheduling, very friendly and provided our dog with lots of love and attention. Thanks Keri!
Keri was an awesome host, highly recommended. She has dogs of her own and lots of experience with them in general, and has a perfect place for them to stay during your time away. There is a fenced in area just outside her front door where dogs can run free and play without risk. Our two border collies stayed with her during our vacation and loved it. Her retriever matched our energetic border collie in energy and sent him home tired after our trip was over :)

I would recommend Keri to anyone who is looking for someone to watch over their dogs. My dog is pretty shy so Keri did a meet and greet first with her dogs which made me much more comfortable leaving her with someone new. She was super accommodating with drop-off and pick-up times. I also loved getting pictures of Olivia while away; it made my trip a breeze. I will be using Keri again in the future!

I want to thank Keri for taking such good care of our dog, Sammie, while we were out of town. It was our first time to leave her with a dog sitter other than a relative. Sammie was comfortable with Keri right away. Keri sent of pictures of our doggie, and we could tell she was happy. I plan to use Keri's DogVacay service in the future, and will recommend her to my friends

What an awesome experience our dog had with Keri and her two well behaved dogs! I was comfortable with Keri within minutes at our Meet and Greet - and so was Mylo. We received multiple texts and pictures letting us know how Mylo was doing during our 9 day vacation. The added bonus was having such an experienced handler to help Mylo with his socialization skills towards other dogs. Thank you, Keri for loving our pet like he was your own!

We had the best experience with Keri! She is adorable, her place great, and her dogs are really sweet and playful. Keri was soooo good with Fonzie. He was so happy to be with her! I have no doubt that we'll be using Keri again for dog sitting!
Keri was great. She took time to show me around where my dog would be staying. My dog also felt immediately comfortable with her.

Keri also kept me up to date by sending me texts and pictures while I was away. She was also very accommodating with the time - my flight got into Austin a little late but I was still able to pick my dog up.

Definitely recommend

It was a joy to work with Keri. I had never used any kind of boarding service before, and she made the whole experience feel like I was leaving my dog with a friend or family member. We had a meet and greet beforehand, and I was satisfied with Keri's superlative qualifications, home setting, and personal temperament. She regularly sent me photos and updates about how well my dog was doing. I had no worries, and I think my dog was a happy camper too. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Austin had a great time w/ Keri and her two dogs. It was great that she had a fellow Golden Retriever that Austin could play with and they were both the same age which was great. She was extremelly responsive with communication and very accommodating when my first trip I had schedule got cancelled last minute. I'd highly recommend Keri for anyone looking for a place to "board" their dog while their on vacaction.
