About Kelly

Hello there,
I'm a dog lover and I've got a sweet and well socialized Doberman named Prancer to hang with. A typical day for us includes a morning jog or hike followed by sun basking on the garden patio. There are several potty breaks throughout the day and an evening outing thru the neighborhood. We live in a condo with a patio - not a backyard so we do lots of walking.

There are plenty of pooch toys to play with and treats are given in exchange for tricks. I offer a clean and safe home to roam in. At night, we are happy to share our bed with your pup if that is what they are used to. Your dog will be treated as a member of our family and get lots of love, exercise, and socializing.

I have experience with many different dogs from small to large & puppy to senior. I also love dog photography so you can expect some fun photo updates of your dog having fun with Prancer.

We are conveniently located near the 14 freeway...for easy pooch drop offs. Space is limited so please make your reservations in advance.

Looking forward to hearing from you and your pup!

***PUPPY & HOLIDAY RATE IS $45/dog***

(Puppy rate is for pups up to 6 months old). If you need a reservation for a puppy or holiday, please message me so I can send you a custom quote)

Add on a customized dog grooming service while you pups on vacay. I clean ears, trim nails, brush teeth if they'll let me. :)

While I prefer to dog sit in my own home, I can make exceptions for 3 or more dogs in your home. Overnight rate is per dog. Thank you!

Kelly was incredible! Sequoia came back happy, full of life and not "skittish" Being that she is only 5 months, it was hard to leave our baby. But then I found Kelly, and I knew instantly she would be perfect, and boy was I right! She was very reasonably priced, and sent me multiple updates and pictures. Couldn't be happier, and we will be contacting her again.

Whenever we've taken our dog Kima to a kennel she was always anxious to leave when we picked her up. That was not the case with Kelly. I'm not entirely sure Kima wanted to leave and that's what we've been looking for. She clearly had a great experience with Kelly and her dog Prancer. (Prancer is awesome.) Kelly was amazing and I could see that she is a genuine animal lover and knows how to read dogs. We got updates and pictures and it was truly comforting and put our minds at ease. Will definitely be using Kelly again.

Kelly was a delight! She was professional, replied to my messages in a timely manner, and was very active with our dog. Also she was great at sending us pictures throughout the day to show us what our dog was doing. This made me feel confident our dog was in good hands. I would recommend her to a friend. Her dog, Prancer, has a very sweet temperament as well! Want your dog safe and active? Book your next Vacay with Kelly!

Mojave enjoyed his stay with Kelly & I know he had alot of fun hanging out with Prancer too. Prancer is so friendly and well behaved. I felt comfortable leaving Mojave under Kelly's supervision, she cares about their health and happiness...Plus she takes some awesome doggie pictures!! :-)

We had our dog, Shadow, stay with Kelly for two weeks over the holidays while we were in Europe. It was our first time leaving her with someone stranger, so we were a little nervous beforehand. However, we did a meet and greet, and Kelly seemed to be just the person we were looking for! She was very reassuring, and was obviously a BIG dog lover, so we felt good about leaving our pup in her hands. The whole time we were away, Kelly sent us pictures and updates on how Shadow was doing. She sent us pics of her playing with dogs, going on walks, and getting snuggles. Kelly took great care of her, and we couldn't be happier with our first experience leaving our pup with someone else. We highly recommend your dog staying at Kelly's house, and we will surely use her again the next time we go away. Thank you, Kelly!!!

Kelly was awesome! Nellie was well love and got lots of attention and exercise! We will definitely use her again!
Sadie had a great weekend with Kelly. Thanks again!!
She is so good. We had a lot of items at her place beds, food, blankets. I forgot a bag of dry food she brought it to our house. great service! I do not want to leave my dogs in a cage somewhere, unattended all day. They are like our kids loved and spoiled.

We went away for a few days. The pups were sad to leave Kelly's. They were pouting for 2 days.
Kelly is great! Leo loves staying with her and Prancer. We left him for (gasp) 2 whole weeks over the winter holidays with her while we were out of state. Kelly sent daily picture updates. Leo had a great time and was actually a bit sad to leave. She knows her stuff and is super friendly. Highly recommend. Thanks again :)

Kelly took great care of Sadie during our holiday. Kelly sent pictures and sent an update almost every day. We feel very comfortable leaving Sadie in Kelly's care. She's a great sitter.
Kelly was awesome! Our dog Leo loved staying with her and Prancer. We had to make last minute reservations because our original plans fell through and we're so happy things worked out so well with Kelly. She asked all the right questions at our meet and greet the day before, which by the way she was willing to set up on very short notice. She also provided daily updates to put us at ease about how Leo was faring in our absence. He clearly enjoyed himself and we will be back for sure when we're out of town next! Thanks again Kelly!!

My dog Cricket has absolutely fallen in love with Kelly and her dog Prancer. I know she is treated so well because of how excited she gets when she sees Kelly and Prancer.

Like always, the worst part about the visit was leaving. For a 2-3 blocks on the way home Cricket would look out the window for her buddies.

Couldn't be more satisfied with the services!

It was the first time I left my dog with anyone. I felt comfortable leaving him after I met Kelly Q. Plus, she sent me pictures which really eased my mind. Will use again!
First off, Tonka, is a kill shelter rescue, he was at the shelter for almost 4 months when I saw him and decided to adopt him. Since that day he has been with me everyday so I was very nervous about leaving him with someone and I would never subject him to a cage again.
Kelly and Prancer are very special, i felt at ease with her right away and it is the first time I have ever seen Tonka bounce around like a puppy with another dog ( I was thrilled).
She sent us updates regularly and took the best pics of him, she even sent us video.
I would take my boy to her in a heartbeat. he came home tired and happy. Thank you DogVacay, Kelly Q and Tonka's girlfriend Prancer for taking care of my precious boy.

Repeat performance! Just like the previous visit, everything was great! Every time Cricket stays with Kelly, she gains a new doggy friend! Book a reservation with Kelly, you won't be disappointed.
Kelly is fantastic! I could go on and on about how great she is. If you need someone who is dependable, trustworthy, and easy to communicate with. Kelly is definitely the dogsitter for you. Side note - Her dog Prancer is really sweet!
Once again our Gus had a great visit with Kelly! He will be back shortly as we go on a vacation and I have to say Kelly worked around our schedule! Thank you!
Elvis had another fabulous stay with Kelly. We feel so lucky to have a place we can leave our boy while we go away, and know that he's having as good a time as we are on "vacation". Thank you Kelly, for treating Elvis like he's part of your family. You're THE BEST!

We have taken Gus to stay with Kelly several times now! He loves it there gets all of his exercise treats and LOTS of the attn he is used to at home. I always get pics and updates through out his stay which defiantly makes us feel more at ease. Highly recommend Kelly and Prancer to take care of your dog!!

Great caregiver, loving, sweet, careful.
Kelly is wonderful, Charlie is our first family pet and I was very anxious to leave Charlie in someone else's care. However, Kelly made me at ease from the meet and greet to the time we first left Charlie. Our puppy came home happily tired and even went back to Kelly's house excited! Kelly was also very flexible as something came up on our second day that I needed help with Charlie because of an emergency that came up! Thanks Kelly and until next time...

We needed a sitter for an upcoming week vacation for our super spoiled Cavailer. He has always been taken care of at home when we leave. We decided to do a trial run and have Will stay one night to make sure he didn't completely freak out. As soon as we got to Kelly's house she put me at ease. Kelly is super friendly as is her sweet dog Prancer. She took Will on many walks and sent multiple pictures of him having a great time at her house. It was a not a hard decision to book the week stay. We will definitely be using Kelly whenever we need a sitter!

This was our first time leaving our beloved Elvis with anyone but family or friends. We were anxious, but knew we needed to find someone reliable that we could use for this trip and in the future. After reading glowing reviews about Kelly and her adorable Doberman "Prancer", we scheduled a "Meet & Greet". Leaving that meeting we felt confident that our boy would be in excellent hands. My youngest daughter (who also came to the meeting) could NOT stop talking about how nice Kelly was and how cute her dog was). She was SOLD...which says a lot.

While we were away, Kelly was awesome about sending updates and photos - which was wonderful. We knew Elvis was having a great time with Prancer and the other dogs Kelly watches during the week - so we could relax and enjoy our vacation. She took him on multiple walks daily (now he's spoiled) and even let him sleep on her bed (sooooo nice)!

We will definitely ask Kelly to "babysit" again. In fact, we've already talked to her about dates over the summer. It is obvious she loves animals and takes great care to make them (and their owners) feel comfortable.

Thanks Kelly!

My husband and I were looking for a new pet sitter for our two dogs, Jack and Annie. In the past, we have had a sitter come to the house and spend the night. However, Jack came to us with some social/behavioral issues and we knew he could benefit from staying with a sitter who could provide him with a supportive, structured environment. DogVacay's website gave me the opportunity to check out multiple sitters, ask questions, review profiles and reviews. The fact that the company also offers pet insurance at no additional cost is a huge bonus.

When I initially contacted Kelly she responded within a few hours. Her rate of response was, and is, excellent! We exchanged several e-mails in which I explained our situation with Jack. She didn't hesitate to accept him and felt very confident that her dog, Prancer, could help as well. Prancer, by the way, is one of the sweetest dogs ever and has the perfect personality to be a co-pet sitter.

We set a date for a meet and greet and met at her home. I recognized immediately that Prancer would be an invaluable assistant to Kelly. Sometimes, it's the members of the pack that help as much, if not more. She knew how to introduce herself and was very respectful of Jack giving him the distance he needed initially.

We dropped Jack and Annie off just a tiny bit anxious about how things would go. Within a couple hours we got our first text message from Kelly letting us know that it took her 30 minutes to get Jack leashed up to go out for a walk! But she stuck with it, and him, and helped him over a big hurdle. After that, things progressed extremely well. Both Jack and Annie seemed to settle in very well and Kelly, bless her heart, took them out for multiple walks every day, including hiking! We loved receiving our daily photo of the three pups together in various settings.

Thanks to DogVacay we have found our new pet sitter and look forward to future trips because we know they will be in very good hands and paws while we are gone!

Kelly was great and Copper had a blast! She gave Copper the exercise he needed (he's a Vizsla and requires a lot) and his playtime with her dog Prancer made him happy! He was even a little lovesick when he came home! Thanks Kelly and Prancer!!
Lucy had a great with Kelly and Prancer. She went on lots of walks and had lots of playtime. I will definitely use her again next time we head out if town.
Kelly made me feel so comfortable leaving my little yorkie with her. She sent me pictures and texts to let me know he was doing great. She is so sweet and you can tell she truly loves dogs. She was a great host!
I know my pup had a great time with Kelly and her princess Prancer! They went for jogs and walks and she took pics of the dogs all getting along. I would recommend her and DogVacay to anyone!
Kelly is great! She has patience, kindness and love for your pets. I have 2 puppies 5 mos and 10 mos. They are very busy and kept her awake at night. She is very good.
Do your dog a favor and leave him with Kelly and Prancer they will have fun and you can get stuff done without feeling guilty or worrying about a bored dog destroying your stuff at home. Its quick painless and problem free.
As always flawless pet sitting experience .. Cant say enough good things about Kelly. Her dog prancer gets along great with all puppy guests which makes the experience even easier..If you want pictures of your dog playing and having fun she will even send them to you during the day.. Cant go wrong!!!!

Kelly is awesome anytime I need a Dog sitter (which is a lot with a 6 month old lab) I call her. Kelly walks and plays with your dog until they give up and take a nap. Dogs come home happy and healthy.
Sapphire loves Prancer!
great care!
Kelly is awesome she and prancer took good care of my lab puppy.
Kelly is really great with the dogs! I was so happy she could help us and watch our Sapphire on short notice. Sapphire was well taken care, fed, walked and loved on. She slept like a rock after playing all day with Kelly and Prancer.

Upon our "meet and great", I had no doubts that Kelly was going to work out perfect!
I was not disappointed!!
Kelly loves the outdoors, so morning and evening walks / jogs are routine. They even went to the beach. My Molly got along so great with Kelly's sweet dog Prancer, that I was afraid she might not want to come home!
I definitely recommend Kelly and Prancer as hosts for your loved one. Molly came back happy as could be.
Kelly obviously loves dogs and I know my dog was in the best of care for 3 days.
I will use her again in a heartbeat!

Had a last minute schedule problem so I called Kelly and she was very willing and excited to take my pup in, even on short notice.

She has great pick-up and drop-off times, especially if you're an early riser. And she takes them on lovely morning jogs, it's great!

Most of all, my dog loves Kelly's house, that's the great comfort. I know that Russia will come home happy and feeling loved.

Kelly was honestly the perfect sitter. At our meet-and-greet she cast all my fears aside. I could tell she was very loving and attentive toward her own dog and that she would bestow that same affection to Russia.

She sent photos and updates daily, which was so great since this was my first time ever leaving my puppy for a vacation. She was very flexible and willing to do an extension for another night. And she went above and beyond most sitters by taking the pups out for jogs every morning. Russia probably got more exercise in those couple of days than she gets at home all week!

If we have vacations, my family and I agree, as long as Kelly is available she is our go-to sitter!!!

Kelly is the best dog sitter I've ever had. She is always giving me updates throughout the day, and is so good with Serenity. She adjusts her daily exercise routine for my overactive husky. She asks all the right questions to make Serenity's stay go as smooth as possible. I give Kelly and Prancer a 5 star review.

Kelly is amazing. She is so sweet, and very flexible. She asked all the right questions about Serenity. She also planned ahead and researched Husky behavior so she would be prepared for my little monster. She sent me pictures and updates all day long, and her Prancer and Serenity got along wonderfully. I will use her again and again. Nothing can beat the piece of mind you get when you know your pooch is happy and taken care of when you are away.
