About Sean

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am no longer boarding only, it has been frustrating dealing with dogs problems that i could easily fix. So i have raised my price and will train your dog for as long as they are with me. It is surprising how much can be done in a couple of days. I will not take a list of concerns and problems you are having unless you want to pay the training price. As I come across issues I will work with them so they can more comfortably fit in with our family. We are motivation based dog trainers. Every time we interact with dogs we are training, socializing and exercising them. I am with the dogs most of the time unless I am off training dogs at other locations.
We spend a lot of time playing tug, fetch and going for walks. We have a stream in the back yard that our dogs love to play in.
The main floor of our home is all solid flooring so that is easy to clean and the dogs can't damage it. The dogs are always in the home with us unless they are playing in the fenced back yard.
Because we train dogs all of my kids are very well versed in our training methods and they love to play with all kinds of dogs.

Penny is a rescue dog. She can be nervous around new people, but she felt at home right away with Sean and his family. I didn't have to worry at all and I got photos of her snuggling with the kids and hanging out. So happy with her visit.
I am so glad I decided to bring Djanga down to stay with Sean and his family. I only received positive feedback on Djanga and loved that she got to sleep with there little daughter. It seems Djanga got a lot of exercise while staying with them and seems in better shape which in thrilled about. I will for sure plan on bringing her to stay with them next trip we take. Thank you Sean and famfamilyr taking care of my little girl! 's

Great experience. Easy to work with last minute. Happy dog. What more could you ask for??
Excellent. Our Lab was thrilled and happy when we found her. Thank you! -Aaron
Chapa had a great time and was well taken care of. I was worried that he might be a handful but he loved meeting and playing with all of other dogs.
Finding the perfect boarder for Saige was weighing very heavy on me. I found this site by accident and I thought 'why not?'
So I searched for someone close and I found Sean K.
Making the reservation was very easy!
I was able to communicate with Sean right away and I felt very comfortable with him taking our dog.
His reviews sealed the deal for me! I finally had a sense of relief that she was in good hands.
The evening I took her over I was nervous that she would be afraid but she seemed to take right to Sean's family and I was so thankful for that.
Walking away was hard but I knew she would be ok. I got updates, in the form of emails, and photos. Saige hadn't been around many dogs and being with Sean and his family helped her so much! She was exposed to his own dogs and allowed outside to play with them. She needed that exposure so much!
When we picked her up she was happy, excited and looked great! She had definitely been taken care of well and I would recommend Sean and his family to everyone I know!
It's hard to leave a member of the family. I didn't want her to be locked up the majority of the day, I wanted her to be comfortable, and have fun and I'm pretty sure she did.
Thank you so much for making this easy on us Sean. We appreciate your help more than I can say.

Sean and his family are amazing! They were super easy to work with and very accommodating. Our dog came home happy.
Sean was great! Our dog was well taken care of and we will use him again, for sure!
Sean and his family were able to take my pug at the last minute for three nights while I took a short vacation. They took care of my senior dog and gave him the attention he needed. Thank you!
Really happy that I found Sean. His family took great care of our dog, and was very willing to keep her an extra day, when I miss-booked. Will use them again, for sure.
Once again our pup Loki had a great time at Sean's place. We feel very comfortable while leaving Loki and trust Sean's family to take good care of him.
Once again, Sean was great! We've used him now 2 times and he and his family are so great with dogs. Minnie always comes home exhausted because she gets so much attention and loves playing with the other dogs. I would highly recommend!
They were super nice and accommodated our last minuite specific pick up and drop times! The pups look like they had a great time and were well cared for. Definitely would recommend.
Sean and family were so great with my Golden Retrievers. They were also great to work with my vacation schedule. The dogs were perfectly happy when I picked them up. I will be requesting a dog vacay with Sean next time.
This was the first time we left 3 month puppy witth anyone. Sean and his family were so nice and flexible. Ted had a great time! We would book Sean again!
Sean was friendly, accommodating, and very laid back. Our dog is very energetic and she had a couple bad habits that I was worried about, but Sean was not phased in the slightest, and his family loved our little Minnie. He sent us pictures while we were away and kept me informed. They were flexible when we needed to have a friend pick her up, and she was in great spirits when she got back home. We would definitely recommend Sean!

Our little puppy Loki was not particularly comfortable with other dogs. Sean was very understanding and helped Loki get used to his dogs without forcing him into it. Sean and his family are extremely patient and care for all dogs in their home. Loki's pictures showed that he was having a good time playing with everyone. This was the first time that we left our puppy for a week and we were a bit worried to do so, but continuous communication from Sean while we were gone relieved us. We will definitely leave Loki with Sean's family the next time we go on vacation.

Another great longer term stay with Sean and his family!!! It's a vacation for Bear just as much as its a vacation for me. He gets to hangout with other dogs and the family is very patient and helpful as Bear becomes comfortable with other dogs. I literally notice a positive difference as Bear stays with Sean and his family!!! I will continue to drive 40 miles out of my way for the experience.

Drop off and Pick up went smoothly. They were flexible with us picking her up a full day early. The dog was happy when we arrived. Everything seemed to go very well. I would use this home again.
We are extremely pleased with our experience! I was worried that our 5 month old sweet-tempered, yet ill-mannered GSD was going to wreak havoc at a strangers home.
Fortunately for us, we picked the right host for the job! Sean and family had the situation completely under control. In fact, immediately after getting our sweet boy back I noticed a substantial improvement in his manners! The icing on the cake was discovered the following day when Mortimer demonstrated his new ability to fetch (previously he wouldn't show any interest in the tennis ball)!
Everyday I looked forward to the pictorial update of our boy that he would send- yet to be honest, after the first day my worries were gone. We will absolutely be using them again.

Sean and his family were amazing with our spoiled, anxious and allergic French Bulldog. Their house is completely dog friendly and knowing Sean is a trainer who has worked with difficult animals before made us feel extra secure that Watson would be well taken care of and kept in line. We will absolutely use Sean again!

Leaving my boxer, Cassi, with Sean was great. Sean was able to take her last minute. At Sean's, Cassi was able to get lots of playtime with other dogs and with Sean's family. She had a great time and was happy and healthy at pickup time. We will be using Sean again for any other overnight stays!

InnovativeK9 is highly recommended!!! Sean is a dog trainer and the entire family provides plenty of love and is highly attentive to dog needs, concerns, and comfortable integration into the household. My dog sometimes has a tough time meeting new dogs for the first time, but Lakota and Kimora were patient and made my dog's stay extra special. Bear stayed for over a week and definitely looks forward to his next visit!!!

Sean and the family were great. Sean is a dog trainer too, so he really knows how to work with dogs. Sunny immediately felt at home and was very relaxed. He wasn't forced to sleep in his crate either, even though he did part of the time. It is so nice that he was able to be free in the house like he is at home and be with people and other dogs. Sunny seemed very peaceful and happy when we picked him up. DogVacay is honestly the best dog sitting we've ever had.
