About Kirk and Anita
We have a deep passion and love for animals. We take pride and joy in rescuing animals of neglect or abandonment. Growing up on a farm has given a tremendous amount of exposure and experience with various animals. This love has grown each year. My husband, who is a retired police officer, and myself who practices as a therapist and social worker have had dogs all our life.
Together, we have always had a passion for taking care of animals. After our marriage in 2008, we both became involved in animal advocacy and animal rescue work. We love all animals, not just our own. Taking part in the rescue of other animals and ensuring appropriate placement gives us pride and joy. You can trust that your pets are in the hands of sincere and loving people.

Kirk and Anita are absolutely fabulous!! We will definitely use them again!! From the meet and greet until the night we picked up our babies, we have been completely thrilled with them.
Kirk and Anita are true animal lovers and wonderful, trustworthy, and caring people! Our three pugs are our spoiled children, and Kirk and Anita took excellent care of them, even better than we do! We received tons of photos and videos of our dogs living amongst their own furry family, and we never worried once about them. When we picked up our puggies, they were soft and smelled super clean. Anita washed our blankets and bowls, and even sent our babies home with a personalized, framed photo of them, little treat bags, and an adorable huge, puggie Valentine's Day card.
Thank you.so much, Kirk and Anita! We really love you guys!

Losing count how many times my pup has already been to the Furry Farm. This trip was a 5 day outing for me, and 5 days of Cyan being where he loves (honestly he boogies out of the car and doesn't look back). His New Year's Eve pic was epic, and I always feel so much better when I know he's in fantastic hands.

We couldn't say enough about our pup's stay with Kirk and Anita. From the the time we arrived they made sure we were familiar and comfortable with leaving Leo on their property. We got continuous updates and pictures which we much appreciated. It was so great to pick up a happy and freshly bathed pup! We will be back for sure!

Just picked up our 2 dogs from a weekend with Kirk & Anita, and they are relaxed,happy and clean, couldn't ask for more! Our dogs were cared for like they were one of Kirk & Anitas own dogs, these people truly love dogs and it shows. Our kids were worried about being away from the dogs and our minds were put to ease with the text, photo and video updates from our hosts. We will absolutely be back, we are so happy that our dogs were so well cared for by Kirk and Anita. thank you for the love you gave to our dogs

We left our 4 month old puppy Chewie at the furry farm, he had the best time! Their home is beautiful and they really take the time to make sure the owner and dog feel comfortable before leaving him in their care. Chewie came back exhausted, happy, and clean. Will reccomend the furry farm to all my friends with their own doggies!

We want to thank Kirk & Anita for watching our 3 fur kids Bianca, Twix & Stout,( from 6 pounds through 88 pounds) thru the Christmas holidays. From a great meet and stay at the Furry Farm, plus all the pictures of the dogs being part of all their festivities. Being in the veterinary world job wise for 14 + years I really did not want to use a kennel. Never knew this existed. A great experience for them and us. Highly recomend Kirk & Anita and we will be repeat customers

Anita and Kirk are warm , wonderful people. Their home is sooooo dog friendly and so are their dogs.
KC came home after 4 days of playing and love with snacks and a picture of him next to the Christmas tree. He had a bath with great smelling shampoo and a holiday scarf.
Anita and Kirk sent pictures daily of KC and his new friends having fun. They are definitely our home away from home for our furry child. We can't thank them enough for putting us at ease about leaving KC for the holiday.

Kirk and Anita were awesome with Fable! They sent lots of pictures and updates. Definitely recommending to friends and family in the area!
I want to Thank Anita & Kirk for watching over our boy Zeus during Christmas Eve and Christmas . When i was looking for a place to take our boy I thought let me look at this DogVacay. As i started to research and look I happened upon Anita & Kirks page The Furry Farm, as i started reading reviews and all of the preat guests, I thought i should ask for a meet and greet. I contacted Kirk and we agreed to meet and greet. When I arrived I was very impressed by the property and care and concern they have for all animals. I knew instantly our boy was going to be in good hands. It also gave me a piece of mind that he was not going to be locked in a cage with little or no interaction especially because of the holiday. After leaving from the meet and greet i went right home and booked Zeus's stay at The Furry Farm. He was treated as part of his family and had such a great time there. They even gave him a bath a new bandanna for Christmas and a christmas biscuit. If you want a piece of mind and not have to worry about your baby or babies being well taken care of . Take them to The Furry Farm Anita & Kirk . You will be happy and at ease while your away. They also send updates constantly, pics and videos of your baby playing with their animals as well as other animals guests staying there. Trust me Our boy will never go anywhere else but The Furry Farm with Anita & Kirk. Thank you again for taking care of our boy Zeus. We were able to have a great Holiday. Ty Anita & Kirk.

3rd time at the Furry Farm, and Cyan is practically bonkers in the car when he realizes where he's going. Always a great experience for him, and peace of mind for me, when he's at the Farm. The best part of the weekend of boarding? That he's pooped when I pick him up! He's already booked for another weekend, and I'm thankful for such great hosts.

Duke is always well-taken care of and has a great visit at the Furry Farm! Thank you, Anita and Kirk, for your love and care while I am away.
We enjoyed the peace of mind knowing our dog was being cared for. Kirk and Anita sent several pictures while we were away. Highly recommended.
Kirk & Anita are wonderful people that are compassionate about the care that they provide toward the dogs they board. The environment is comfortable and geared for the dogs in a way that is homey and sound for the enjoyment of your dog. Oh, and it was great to get texted pictures of our dog (Tank) in various activities while we were away. It was a great experience and will look forward to future boards,and highly recommend Kirk and Anita to all.

Anita and Kirk are so great, Xena had an awesome time.
A great experience as always for Sal! We booked another night just so he can play and have fun. They really have the nicest dogs and Sal just loves playing with them. When we picked him up we even received a homemade paw print as a xmas ornament! This is our 4th visit so far and we will definitely be booking another one soon since Sal loves it so much.

2nd stay for Cyan, and I'm getting the feeling he'd rather live with Anita & Kirk LOL. Another great stress-free weekend for me not having to worry about my old timer cooped up in a kennel. They sent me home with a paw-print ornament and I'm already booking another stay (besides one for during the holidays). Sooo exceptionally happy to have found Anita & Kirk!!!

There is absolutely nothing but positive things to say about Anita and Kirk. They took Bailey on short notice, were very accommodating with my hectic schedule, and they were very very nice to me. Not to mention THIS PLACE IS DOG HEAVEN. Seriously. I felt bad picking my dog up....They sent me pictures of Bailey the whole time, sent him with home with treats and Christmas photos, and gave him a bath (he smelled wonderful for days). I will absolutely book Anita and Kirk again. This is hands down the best experience I have had on DogVacay. Your best friend is in good hands.

The first time Stewie has been there and the first time we felt like he was in excellent care! They treated Stewie as if he was their own. We have found a home away from home for our Stewie. Would highly recommend these very nice and caring people to take care of your family pet!

Our kid's second stay with Kirk & Anita. It is very obvious that they LOVE what they do! There are not enough words to describe how great Kirk & Anita are. I have told everyone I know (that has dogs) about them!
I've always used my vet's boarding facilities, but after a week-long stay, my 11-year-old Husky was sore and kinda miserable when I picked him up. A couple of friends recommended DogVacay, and I chose Anita & Kirk based on location and reviews. I did not choose wrong! Kirk and I discussed my dog at a meet and greet, but I was still slightly apprehensive after drop off (mainly because, you know, it's my baby!). Within an hour, I received the first of many photos, showing my dog chowing down (I didn't think he'd eat); lots and lots of photos followed throughout the weekend, along with a few videos. I had a much happier weekend knowing my dog was in great hands, having some really great socialization with Kirk & Anita's dogs, and hanging out with a couple other DogVacay guests. My pup was happy when I picked him up, and I've already booked another stay with Kirk & Anita.

Our dog Lucky stayed with Anita & Kirk for the second time recently and once again he loved it. They are very nice, caring people and took really great care of our pet. They sent lots of photos and videos of him so we could see him playing and having a good time with their dogs. He was even given a bath before we picked him up. We will definitely use their services in the future. Highly recommend.

Kirk and Anita were great, and absolutely deserve 5 stars! Our adopted 3 year old Golden Retriever is very active and can be a handful, but had a great time playing with the other dogs and lounging on the sofa or floor next to the fireplace with his new companions and hosts. The texts and photos were so sweet and assured us that he was safe, happy and entertained. My only worry was that he would not want to come home!

Home pet sitting is so much better than a kennel. We learned that the hard way, and lost a beloved dog last spring, so we were quite worried about finding a place to leave our remaining dog for a week. We could not be happier with Kirk and Anita's Furry Farm! They are dedicated dog lovers.

This is our second time using Kirk and Anita. We have a large dog that needs to run and play and their home/yard is perfect. He gets plenty of exercise and is treated as one of their own. I love the updates, photos and videos that they send - I never worry about him and can see that he is being loved and spoiled. What more could I ask for?! I highly recommend them!

Another great stay for our Lab Lucky at Kirk and Anita's. It was only a one night stay, but they treated Lucky well and Lucky integrated right in an enjoyed his many friends at the overnight stay. In the future if we need to have Lucky stay one night or one week we wont hesitate to have him stay with Anita and Kirk. Extremely satisfied.

Another great time for our dog Sal! He played nonstop and made lots of new friends! He is excited to come back again soon!
Once again, Anita and Kirk provided outstanding care to my dog, Duke. This was Duke's second stay at The Furry Farm, and I can't say enough about the level of care and attention they provide. I receive pictures each day of Duke having fun with all of the dogs, resting comfortably and truly enjoying himself. It gives me such peace of mind knowing Duke is being so loved and cared for by Anita and Kirk. Thank you so much for loving him like one of your own. I'm so happy I found such a great family. Looking forward to our next stay.

Another great experience with Anita and Kirk! Again, so impressed with the updates , videos, and pictures of how Sal was doing. We didnt even go out of town on this visit, we booked the night at Furry Farm just because Sal had such an amazing time playing with all the dogs we wanted him to come back the next week for more fun! Sal was super happy and exhausted when we picked him up the next day, we couldnt have asked for more. Im already thinking of another day to drop him off to play again! We dont even want to wait until we go out of town to have him come back! This is a FIVE STAR dog resort!!!

Anita & Kirk are WITHOUT a doubt, the most fantastic sitters ever. No question about it.

Not only do they have 7 of their own dogs that give socialization and playtime for your own furbabies... but they have an abundance of love and understanding for all breeds as well as unconditional love to treat your kids as one of their own.

I have never been this comfortable leaving my two kids with anyone. They provided us with an anxiety free week long vacation. Anita & Kirk sent many pictures everyday as well as texts about how well they are doing. That alone put me at ease. As my husband says, "Happy Wife, Happy Life".

When we picked up our kids at the end of our week's vacation, we were given a lovely gift. A framed picture of our two Pyrs, as well as treats for each of them. I was moved to tears.

They did not need to gift me with anything. My gift was their giving my kids a loving home, their love and attention for the duration of our vacation.

Thank you so much Anita & Kirk.

Best dog sitters ever! Great, friendly people! Our dog was treated like their own and was very spoiled! This is the second time we have used Kirk and Anita and will definitely be using them again. Reese has so much fun playing there with the other dogs. She's exhausted when she gets home! You can really tell she's enjoyed herself. Clean, beautiful home with a big yard for the thadogs to run around. Anita sent home a goodie bag with a picture or two of Reese. So thoughtful and cute! We highly recommend you bring your furry ones to them! Thanks again guys!

Anita and Kirk were absolutely the best dog hosts ever! This was our first experience with dog vacay and didnt know what to expect. There house was beautiful and yard was huge! They sent us tons of videos and pictures of our boy Sal enjoying himself and playing with other dogs. When we picked him up he was cleaner then when we left him! We cant wait to bring him back again to play and have fun. We can now feel at peace taking vacations knowing he is in the best hands possible. This was our best experience for dog boarding we have ever had. We have been to kennels in the past that were more expensive and they dont even compare to the experience we had here. When we left we even received pictures of Sal with a doggie good bag! Honestly we couldnt ask for more. These people are truly amazing and i cant say enough about them!

We had such a great experience with Kirk and Anita! We truly appreciate everything they have done for us and for accommodating our dogs on such short notice. They took care of our dogs like they were their own and sent us pictures the whole time to prove it. Our dogs came home nice and clean and exhausted from all the playing they did. I would definitely recommend choosing Kirk and Anita's for your dog's vacay. They are true animal lovers. I'm so happy we found people we can trust with our doggies!

We cannot thank Kirk and Anita enough for the loving care they provided to our 7 year old Lab Lucky while we were away. They provided a meet and greet prior to Lucky's stay and were shown their beautiful property where Lucky had a chance to meet the resident pups. While away, we were sent pictures on a regular basis of Lucky enjoying his stay. And when picking up Lucky, they were so generous to provide a gift bag with treats and a framed picture of Lucky. We are in the process of booking Lucky's a next stay and can't thank Kirk and Anita enough for being the best home away from home for our Lucky!
P.S. Have already recommended The Furry Farm to friends!

Anita and Kirk were great hosts! It was the first time for our dogs staying there, and we couldn't have been happier. Over the course of two days, we received so many pictures of the dogs getting comfy in their beautiful home. They have seven dogs of their own, and during the meet and greet Kirk took the time to introduce each of his dogs separately to ours so they wouldn't be overwhelmed. When we picked up our dogs, we were given a gift bag with doggie treats and a framed picture, as well as others snapshots they had taken during the weekend. They are definitely dog lovers, and we would not hesitate having our dogs stay with them again!

Kirk and Anita were fabulous hosts to my 12 year-old yellow lab, Duke, during my vacation. Prior to Duke's stay, Kirk took the time to provide a meet n' greet that was relaxed and thorough, allowing Duke time to get to know their dogs, all of which enthusiastically welcomed Duke. The meet n' greet also gave me the opportunity to learn more about the loving environment in which my boy Duke would spend his doggycation! They were very accommodating with my drop-off and pick-up times. While I was out of the country, Kirk and Anita took the time to send me pictures of Duke each day, allowing me to see how well he was being cared for, the comfy beds he was sleeping on, and how much fun he was having while playing with the other dogs. Their home and yard are spacious and very dog-friendly. I am truly grateful to have found a loving family with a cheerful home where Duke is comfortable and happy. Kirk and Anita truly love dogs and it shows in their abundant generosity towards the dogs in their care. I will definitely book again with Kirk and Anita, as they give me great peace-of-mind that Duke is treated just like a member of their own family.

This was our first time leaving our kids, so it was also our first DogVacay. It couldn't have been any better, our dogs loved it. I don't think they wanted to come home, they had such a wonderful time. We received pictures and videos of them playing and having fun every day. Kirk and Anita treated them just like they were their own dogs. After our initial meet and greet with Kirk, I knew they would be in great hands. We felt absolutely comfortable leaving them there and will definitely be back.

Our puggle Henry stayed with Anita and Kirk in August while we vacationed at the shore. We were so happy with the wonderful care and property that we quickly booked them for a weekend in September when we had a wedding out of town. Even though we live in Philadelphia, it is worth the drive for such a wonderful place for Henry to stay. We feel so comfortable with Anita and Kirk and we love how they treat Henry like he was their own pet. We will be using them anytime we need to travel without Henry.

My 1 yr old lab stayed with Anita & Kirk on the Furry Farm for 1 full week and loved it! They sent pictures of her having fun everyday and it was so comforting knowing that she was safe and having fun all day long. The night I picked her up she was freshly bathed and smelled like lavender (its like a doggy spa). I think it was good that they had other dogs there because when she came back she was even better being around other animals. I would 150% recommend Anita & Kirk for your furry family member!

This was our dog's second vacay with Kirk & Anita. Great weekend for him as before. We never have to worry when we leave him here. Both dog & family have had a wonderful time
In the past with pets that we have had in the past, we always had a family member available to take care of them. This time no one was available so we have heard of this service and threw some luck in the wind.....what a wonderful experience. Our pet is a 4 month old pappion. Pretty much a baby. Kirk and Anita took care of him like a baby family member. They sent some pics of his activities (running around like a big boy) having fun with the other dogs, made us feel so assured. When picking him up, he was happy to see us yet not dying to leave either. I would recommend Kirk and Anita to everyone. The personal care and love they gave our little Radar is priceless. Their property is secluded away from busy roads, clean, and simply beautifu
l. Such a great way to relax on a trip with ease of mind. I would have it no other way unless he could be with them when we go on vacation again.

We left our Irish Setter with Kirk & Anita for 10 days. It was his first long term vacation, and we could tell from the pictures they provided (especially the one where he looked so comfy stretched out on their bed) that he was having a great time. Being a bird dog, he was really excited to be near the chickens. Their yard is spacious, with more than adequate fencing to keep our escape artist safely inside. We could tell that Kirk & his wife really love and care for the dogs on their vacays. When we picked him up to go home, he had been shampooed and brushed, his bed had been washed, and he had treats to bring with him.
He was a very happy camper!
We would definitely choose them again with no worries whatsoever.

My boyfriend, Matt, and I, Cate, would recommend that everyone request Anita and Kirk before they go to anyone to watch their dogs!We were on our first vacation away from our 11 month old Australian Shepherd and the original dog boarder was not at all what we expected. Long story short we needed to find not only a different dog boarder, but a person who would be willing to pick him up on such short notice from a stranger's home until we could get home from our vacation. Friday afternoon Matt reached out to Kirk and immediately got a call back from him. Without any hesitation they went and got Tucker from the other boarders' house and took him in. They welcomed him into their home, and made him so comfortable that he wanted to sleep on their bed!! We received pictures, videos, and updates throughout the 3 days they had him without us having to ask them for it. When we went to pick him up on Sunday morning they gave us feedback that we wouldn't have known about had we not gotten Tucker out of his comfort zone. Being with these amazing dog parents, we discovered his separation anxiety from us. His behavioral patterns while we were away were picked up by them and they cared enough to talk to us about it. These are honest dog lovers. Their yard was spacious and fenced in which is perfect for our active pup. All the thank you's in the world wouldn't be enough for all that they did for us and Tucker. We feel 100% at ease knowing that this family will be our go to for Tuck!

I just wanted to give a great big thank you to Kirk and Anita for taking such great care of Cooper. The farm is awesome and the house with surroundings are beautiful. They definitely went the extra mile to care for Cooper. Cooper met a lot of new friends. I think one of his favorite things were the pools which he swam in daily. I would highly recommend the farm for all people looking for a safe and fun place for their dog. On a scale of one to 10 I would give it a 10. Thanks again Joan and Bill

This was our second time leaving our cookie with Kirk and Anita. First time we did two nights and this time here, we did 5 days. I can't say enough good things about Kirk and Anita.. During our first meet and greet , we were a little leery about leaving cookie, considering we just adopted him from a rescue. Once we arrived to Kirk and Anita's house, we knew we had made an excellent decision to leave him. Kirk took the time to introduce each one of his dogs to cookie and even give us a tour of his home. We were immediately put to ease and instantly knew cookie was in the right hands.. Through out our first night away from cookie, Kirk sent pictures to reassure us he was fine . We love and highly recommend Kirk and Anita. If your looking for caring passionate animal lovers to look after your baby, they meet the criteria without a doubt

Really nice folks and awesome place for doggie
Our Holly had another safe and fun stay. Thanks Anita and Kirk!
Monroe had a great vacation at the Furry Farm! Kirk and Anita were very flexible with pick up/drop off and were very sensitive to the needs of my shy pup. I received pictures each day so I could see Monroe was in good hands. I would recommend to any dog owner! Thanks Kirk and Anita for a great experience !

We had an excellent experience with Kirk and Anita. They have a beautiful property and lots of great fenced in space for the dogs to explore. They kept us updated with photos and notes regularly and treated Henry like he was one of their own. Henry is very food obsessed which can be an issue but Kirk and Anita had no problem accommodating his issues. I would absolutely recommend them for your pup and we look forward to using their service again.

This was my second time using Anita and Kirk's services. Once again a flawless experience and when I picked up my pup I could tell she enjoyed her stay!
Kirk and Anita took great care of our puggle Piper! She even came home freshly bathed and with some special treats. We felt like we were right there on vacation with her from all the pictures they sent of her playing and resting and eating. We are sending her there again soon!

Barkley returned for a longer stay at Anita and Kirk's. She was excited as we pulled up the drive way. I wasn't sure she'd want to actually go home after the 4 days! They took great care of her again and I received lots of pics and updates. It is a comfort to know I can rely on Anita and Kirk for boarding Barkley as I know she is in good hands.

Kirk and Anita,s Furry Farm was the best decision I made all summer. I have had many pet sitters over the past 5 yrs and I highly recommend Kirk and Anita. My dog has separation anxiety which seems to be taking its time to cure, but I have to say that this was the very first time he didn't want to leave.
In fact.... I think he was a little disappointed I came to pick him up because he ignored me all night, and didn't even sleep with me
Needless to say, Zeus had a wonderful experience and there is so much to do. Kirk and Anita are by far, the best hosts I've experienced. I can't wait to book my next reservation !

Found a place better than our own home...that is the definition of a vacation. We are grateful to have found a home away from home for our dogs.
Open space to run and socialize with other dogs.....
and to frolic with goats & chickens.
The interior of the home is welcoming, with a sofa, chair or extra dog bed.
Last but not least, the attentiveness and care given by Kirk & Anita. They are beautiful people and true advocates for our canine friends.
They genuinely care for animals.

I can't say enough wonderful things about Kirk & Anita and their home. Our dog is very large and needs a good workout every day. Their property is perfect with huge fenced in enclosures with lots of fun areas for the dogs to explore. They sent daily photos and updates and were willing to work around our schedule. Finn came home clean and exhausted along with a little goodie bag! We will definitely use them again!

Kirk and Anita are AWESOME people. Their setup is like a doggie wonderland. You can tell from the minute you meet them that they have a true love for dogs. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND them to everyone. I wouldn't think twice of ever using anyone else to watch my dog. I can't say enough good things about them. And I will definitely be using them again in the future.. Thanks again for a wonderful experience.

Anita and Kirk did a wonderful job taking care of our dog. We especially loved the photos they sent so we could see what a wonderful time he was having! I'm sure we'll use their services again!
We felt comfortable leaving our Holly with Anita and Kirk. She had a great time running around their big fenced yard, and she was comfortable hanging out in their home as well. We appreciated all the pictures they sent us during our puppy's stay - the kids loved seeing her on her vacation. It was also nice that she got a bath before we picked her up, and she came home with a clean bed and all of her toys. We'll definitely be leaving Holly with Anita and Kirk again.

Kirk and Anita were amazing! We are so glad we found them and this service. They made us feel at ease at our meet-and-greet, taking their time to ensure that our Zoe would be comfortable with their dogs--she was. Having never boarded her, we were still a little apprehensive, but our fears were soon calmed when they sent us regular photos that assured us she was happy and healthy, and seemingly having a great time with her new playmates. This is obviously a labor of love for Kirk and Anita. We have no doubt they treated Zoe as well as their own pets, who are treated pretty darn well based on the pet-centered yard and house! We would not hesitate to use them again and to recommend them to everyone.

AWESOME! We were so lucky to have Kirk and Anita take such great care of our dog Cody during our vacation to Ocean City. We dropped Cody off at 9am and Kirk and Anita took the time to introduce each of their dogs to Cody individually. They spent nearly two hours with us, showing us their property as the dogs got to know one another. During Cody's stay we received daily updates with pictures and videos of Cody playing, swimming, and napping. When we picked Cody up in the evening Anita had arranged a care package that included treats and a framed picture of Cody! It was above and beyond our best expectations. We can't say enough how great Kirk and Anita were in caring for Cody. We already booked Cody to stay with them during our next vacation. Cody can't wait to go back!

First and foremost, Anita and Kirk at Furry Farm, were amazing!! They have a passion for dogs, and it shines through!

We can't say enough wonderful things about their care for our pup Lucy! They were great from the beginning, Kirk took time to answer any questions and helped "calm our nerves" with any concerns we might have with setting up the reservation and what to expect for her stay. When we arrived, he introduced their dogs to Lucy, to make sure they got along and to show us that as well. He also showed us all around the property, inside and out, and took time with us to take her for a walk to see how she would do and to be sure she was comfortable as well as making sure we were too.

During her stay, they were incredibly flexible with pick up and drop off times, which was nice with travel/vacation timings that can be sporadic. They took tons of pictures to send us and kept in constant contact, which we loved, so we didn't have to worry! She had so much fun playing with the other pups and having her own vacay! They gave her a bath on pick up day, washed her blankets, and even made a goodie bag with treats for her ride home and gave us pictures of her stay, which we will cherish! They took care of her in every way! She even "kissed" them goodbye to thank them!

We couldn't be happier with their care and we will definitely use them again!!

Anita and Kirk did a fabulous job. Our dog loved running in their large yard and playing with the other dogs. They sent us picture updates and even gave us some printed photos to take home with dog treats! Our dog returned to us well exercised and clean! Couldn't have asked for a better pet sitting experience.

My dog stayed with Anita and Krik for a weekend. Their property is a doggie haven with large fenced in areas, a doggie pool, and lots of areas to sniff and explore.On the hot days, their house is air conditioned and dog friendly. My dog took to Kirk right away even though she can sometimes be a bit apprehensive of men she does not know. I stayed there for about an hour to to ease my dog into the new environment and Kirk made sure Barkley was comfortable. Both Anita and Kirk are so nice and you can tell they love animals. I felt very secure leaving my dog there. I received a number of pictures and updates during the weekend which was great. They even noticed my dog had a minor medical issue which I had not noticed myself! When I picked up my dog she had just gotten a bath and she was sent home with a doggie bag of treats and a personal note with some lovely tea bags for me. I am very happy with the experience and my dog will be returning there soon!

We used Kirk and Anita on our recent trip to the Jersey Shore. Kirk and Anita were by far the best dog sitters we have ever used. Located minutes off the AC Xpressway and black horse pike. The property is well equipped to handle your dog. They have a ton of space for the dogs to run around. Kiefer really enjoyed his stay. They were 100% responsive, asked questions and really showed interest in getting to know our dog. During our vacation, they sent a ton of pictures of Kiefer, and it looked like he was having a great time. They put together a care package of dog biscuits and pictures from his stay, when we picked Kiefer up. Kiefer really enjoyed the homemade dog cookies on the way home. They are a down-to-earth, very friendly couple. We are definitely going to use them again for our next vacation.

I couldn't be happier with my decision to utilize Anita and Kirk's dog sitting services. I was very apprehensive when I first considered using someone I didn't know to watch my pup Jayda, as I wanted to make sure she was comfortable and able to play as much as she wanted. The second I got there to drop her off they made me feel completely at ease by showing me all that would be available such as a huge fenced in backyard, and comfy beds/furniture throughout the house for the dogs to relax. I could immediately tell how much both Anita and Kirk love dogs and that they were experienced. Their dogs were all very friendly and I was happy knowing Jayda would have them to play with. I received many updates and photos each day which I loved! They were very flexible with drop off/pick up times, and when I came to pick up they had a goody bag of treats, printed photos from the weekend, and an adorable American flag bandanna since it was the 4th of July. I will definitely use them again in the future!!!

Kirk was an awesome host! (Anita was out of town, so we'll have to meet her next time.) Their location is a wonderful place for our dogs to hang out. Large fenced in yard with shade and even goats to look at (through the fence, of course!). The dogs seemed so relaxed and at peace when we picked them up. I could tell they'd had a great time. I would highly recommend this host if you are traveling in the area.

So happy to have found Anita and Kirk's pet haven! My dog Mattie is super loving and playful and I struggled trying to find a fun and safe environment for her until I stumbled upon Anita and Kirk's Vacay page. They were extremely prompt to reply when I requested a meet and greet and fit me in the next day. They were super welcoming and did a great job introducing Mattie to their family and put me right at ease. They have a huge and well gated back yard and even a little swimming area for the pups to cool off! Mattie loved playing with all the pups, was treated like royalty and I have tons of pictures throughout the day to prove it. Best yet, she came home happily worn out and freshly bathed.... doesn't get better than that!

I highly recommend using Krik and Anita's for your pets next vacation, I dont know if you can find two more animal loving and nuturing humans.
