About James

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I work from home and love taking care of dogs. I love the great outdoors and know dogs just love to be outside.

I have been taking care of pets for at least seven years now, and I love it!

I currently offer doggy daycare (in addition to overnight boarding)! I’d be happy to keep your pup entertained while you’re away for the day.

A Peaceful Loving Home to Share With Your Pet

Our pups had a lovely day with James K. He and his wife were so gentle with our skittish one, that she accepted him almost immediately--a true first for us. I highly recommend his services--truly exceptional.
Our Ziva is a bit of a diva needing lots of attention and having some special needs, but James and Gloria put all my worries to rest at our meet 'n' greet. We spent a full hour discussing Ziva's preferences, my concerns, letting Ziva explore the apartment where she'd be staying, and answering all my questions. By the time I returned from my 10 day trip, my only fear was that Ziva wouldn't want to come home! The pictures I received while away showed Ziva having a great time, taking long walks with James and cuddling with Gloria. I was able to truly relax and enjoy my vacation knowing Ziva was in good and caring hands, safe and sound. Thank you Wag and Walk! We'll be back!

James is great, totally reliable, my two little dogs love him, and every time they return knowing new skills (the little one used to hate stairs, now she can tolerate them).

Also, he has often taken care of the dogs at the last minute, which is just such a huge relief.

James was very patient with my two dogs and even managed to help my tiny dog lose her fear of going up and down stairs!
James is fantastic! Duffy was at home from the minute we walked through the door. I especially appreciate the time James took to take Duffy on long walks. Duffy will definitely be staying with James for all our "boarding" needs. At James' house it is not boarding, it's staying with a friend!

I've never seen my anxious dog settle down so quickly with a new person in a new place, and after a week with James, she is blissfully calm. The long walks and loving attention he provided were just what she needed, and I really appreciated his insight into her talents and quirks. He's a true dog whisperer, and I couldn't be more grateful!

James and Gloria were awesome from the outset! On our "approval" visit the questions asked were clearly aimed at providing great care and really understanding both the physical needs of my dog and her "soul"! They obviously understood animals. During the two days I was gone I received 5 adorable pictures and brief reassuring notes - my children saw them and said Riley would probably not even want to come back home with me! This was the first time in 13 years I have ever left my dog with anyone other than family or my best friend, and I could not have been more pleased with her experience at James and Gloria's.

James and Gloria were great with my Labrador. He spent 10 days with them and they took real good care of him. I recommend them without hesitation and will surely leave Owen with them again soon. Thank you!
James is great with our dog Stewart. He takes him for lots of walks (Stewart LOVES being outside.) He's flexible with hours and has a really calm demeanor. It's been a good fit for our rescue pup, and he can be particular. I would recommend!
James and Gloria were great! They were very respectful of Rose and took time to get to know her before our drop off. Very conscientious and caring. Knew Rose was in good hands!
James and Gloria were wonderful with our two shih-tzus! When we came to pick up Katie and Sweet Pea, they were calm and happy. I could tell they had been well cared for and got plenty of exercise. We also had a last minute schedule change, and James and Gloria accommodated our girls for an extra night's stay. We are grateful to have found them!

James and his wife were great! Even though we left our shy dogs for an overnight, judging by the pictures we received they settled in very quickly! We will certainly use them again. Joe and Mila
James did a super job taking care of our medium sized dog. Our dog returned home calm and we could tell he had been brushed and well cared for. James also worked with our dog on not pulling on the leash, he took him for long outdoor walks, and he sent update pictures. This is our first experience using DogVacay, and now that we have found James, it will not be our last!

Jasper was very well looked after by James and his wife, who took great care of him. I would not hesitate to use them again next time.
James and his wife were absolutely amazing with our dog Colbie. They were able to take her on long runs and walks every day, so when she came back to us she was completely tired out. We highly recommend them!
James and Gloria were wonderful hosts for my young labrador, Lars. They provided a very calming, caring, and nurturing environment for Lars while we were on vacation. James really understands dogs and worked at improving on Lars' training. Lars was calm and happy when we picked him up. I highly recommend them!
