About Kimberly

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Meet and greets are required for new guest pups prior to the vacation.

*Free bath and toe nail trim with 7 or more day stay*

Waggin' Tails offers in home check ups for your feline needs.

I am a registered veterinary technician, licensed since 2001, but have worked in the veterinary medicine field since 1996. I have experience with all sorts of animals large and small. In my profession it is necessary to pay close attention to pets as they are members of the family. If your pet has any special needs or requires medication this is not a problem I am experienced in handling pets that require the extra attention.
My husband is a full time veterinarian and has been licensed since 2006.
We have 3 small children and no dogs of our own currently, but we are looking to add a furry friend to the family this summer. In our spare time we love outdoor activities such as camping, fishing, gardening and walking.
Your pet will be treated just like one of our family members. There is no need to worry since your pet will be taken care of by a person with experience.

Please make sure your dog is flea free and update on all vaccines prior to their doggie vacay.

Since there are small children in my house I am unable to take any dogs with aggressive tendencies.

We have taken Molly to her home away from home Kimberly Witherby's home when we have gone on vacation a number of times. We know without a doubt Molly has had so much fun at Kim's while we are away. Kim insures Molly's breakfast and dinner are fed on time. Since Molly is an older dog she has medication which must be given at a specific time. Kim's attention to detail has never failed in this respect. Molly has received her medication when due. Kim insures Molly goes for a number of walks throughout the day. She is kind enough to send us photos of Molly playing, walking and having fun with her children.
We know when we leave Molly she is in the best of hands with Kim. Kim is and has been a Registered Vet Teach. All in all we
are thankful to have the peace of mind Kim's care gives to Molly when we are out of town. Thank you Kim for all the love and care you provide to our sweet girl!

Kim is wonderful. She has done daycare and boarding for us. We have 3 Irish Setters, two older girls and an under 2 boy. She keeps us updated with photos so I am confident my "kids" are doing fine. She makes sure they get their walks and treats and Medes if needed. I would highly recommend her.

It has been awhile since we left a review so we just wanted to say again how great Kimberly is with our dogs. We wouldn't trust leaving with anybody else with the exception of our Daughter.
Mimi, our 11-1/2 year old golden doodle, absolutely loves her stays at Kimberly's home. Kimberly sees to it that our doodle has her meds/supplements twice daily and, lately, Mimi has a better appetite during her stays. This is progress...Kimberly has been a godsend to us!

As always our dogs were in good hands with Kimberly.
Kimberly was Awesome!!!! She looked after our puppy while my husband and I were away. We were really nervous about leaving our 3 month old puppy but after our meet and greet, we knew she was the right choice. I definitely recommend her!!!! She gave us daily updates and my pup had a great time and loved meeting new friends. :)

Kimberly W is everything we have ever been looking for in a dog sitter. Our 11 year old Mimi the Goldendoodle came home from her recent 5-day stay as calm and happy as we have ever seen her; it is obvious she received lots of love and TLC! The fact that Kimberly is a certified vet tech and her husband a veterinarian living in a beautiful, clean home with a pet-friendly yard makes this the ideal Dog Vacay venue. Knowing we have Kimberly for our boarding needs has made our move from Chicago to Temecula much less stressful!

Another great day with Kimberly!
Always great!
We are first time users of Dogvacay.com

We picked Kimberly because she was close to us and was open to last minute bookings, but also because she is a Veterinary Technician and her home environment seemed amiable to small breeds.

She watched our yorkie-poo for 4 nights over Thanksgiving and we are thrilled with her service. From her daily photos and descriptions of activities, we were very comfortable that she and her family were taking good care of our dog. We will likely use Kimberly next time we need extended dog care.

Kim always takes good care of our Remy. Kim is the best!
Remy had a great day with Kimberly and her girls kept Remy company , always a good feeling that she had a fun time,thanks for taking care of our Remy. Barry and Josine
Great as always, even with the challenge of our 3 large dogs.
Our Daisy had a great stay with Kimberly. She is a great host to have and made our little vacation worth the trip.
Always great care and attention. Consistently sends photos and updates.
Kimberly took very good care of our two dogs. With her background as a veterinary technician, if gave us extra piece of mind knowing she could handle any situation with our dogs should one arise. We were very pleased and will be using Kimberly the next time our dogs need boarding.

Kim is always amazing. Koko loves spending time with Kim and her family. Highly recommend Kim to anyone looking for a sitter for their fur-baby.
As always , Kim is great. Perfect place away from home for my dogs.
As always, just "pawsome!" Kimberly and family love Cooper like he is one of their own. And the feeling is mutual! Thanks for your continued love and care of the Coop!
Always great! Such a great option for daycare and our pup comes home happy and tired .
Kim and her family are always wonderful! Koko is treated like one of her own.
Providing day care for our new pup.all went great!so happy to have this daycare option.
This was the first time we left our fur babies with someone we did not know. Kim was so helpful in answering questions and easing our concerns. The puppies had a great time and we received almost daily pictures and updates. We arrived to pick them up and honestly they were happy to see us but not that eager to go home. We will definitely use Kim and Dog Vacay again!!

Always a good experience for my 2 girls at Kim's.
Great care for my 2 dogs. Great updates and pictures. Dogs look very comfortable at Kim's house.
Another great stay for Cooper with Kimberly and family. He is always so well taken care of and entertained that he comes home tired and happy. Coop loves his vacations as evidenced by the many pictures Kimberly sends when we are gone. If you are looking for a loving home to take care of your furry friend, look no further. You've found the perfect place! Thanks again Kimberly!

Kim and her family are always amazing. Koko is treated like family and we love that.
Cooper had another great vacation with Kimberly and her family. He came home tired and very happy. And he made a new BFF in Aspen. We've found our home away from home for the Coop. I simply can't imagine a better, more caring and experienced host.
Cooper enjoyed another wonderful vacation with Kimberly and her family. Always a social pup, he even got the chance to make a new friend and loved hanging out with Aspen. He came home to us tired and happy from all the walks and play time with his buddies. I simply can't say enough wonderful things about Kimberly's care. Thanks again, Kimberly for taking such good care and loving on our doodle pup as you do!

My 70 pound goldendoodle, Cooper spent 10 days on vacation with Kimberly and her family. And what a wonderful time he had! I admit I'm a helicopter mom when it comes to my pets, but Kimberly's care for Coop far exceeded my expectations. He went for daily walks with the rest of the dog family, played in their back yard, chewed on all kinds of fun new toys readily available to him and even cozied up on the sofa. She even provided a large crate as he is crate trained so I did not have to drag his along with me. Though I did not request, she sent me daily updates with pictures so I really felt connected and could see how much fun he was having. It was clear to me upon first meeting Kimberly that she LOVES dogs and can read their behaviors very well. I immediately knew we found a great vacation home for Cooper. You simply can not find a better home away from home for your dog! And a huge added bonus is that Kimberly is trained as a vet tech and her husband is a veterinarian!!! So you not only have a family (they have two sweet young girls) who will love and take care of your dog, but medical expertise at hand as well. What a winning combination! We know where Cooper will want to go in the future when it's vacation time!

Kim and her family always treat Koko like family. We love Kim!
Kimberly and her family made our Kirby girl feel right at home. We could tell by the happy relaxed photos they sent us while we were gone, and their girls hugged and loved on Kirby when we picked her up asking if she could come back again. It feels really good to know that our four legged girl was in such capable and loving hands in our absence.

Kimberly was Awesome! I got lots of pictures everyday and details about my dogs stay! She got tons of one on one attention! I would highly recommend her.
Travis' visit was wonderful as usual. Kim's home is my dog's home away from home.
Kim is awesome!! She took such great care of Delilah...I am super paranoid about other people with my fur baby but Kim was great! I loved the updates i recieved and I'm sure Delilah would love another stay! I thought Delilah would be stressed out when I picked her up, due to not being at home, but she was so excited and seemed like she had soooo much fun! I totally would reccommend Kim's fur-baby sitting, and I will definitely come back. =)

Koko is always treated like family at Kim's house. She loves going there!
Travis thinks he has another mommy. Kim takes wonderful care of him. I can tell by how calm he is when he returns from vacation.
Kim and her family are amazing! I love how flexible she is with drop off and pick up times. Thank you for being so wonderful. If you want your dog to feel at ease while you are gone, I highly recommend Kim!
Thanks again Kimberly for taking good care of Remy,we loved the pictures,especially the one with your little girl and Remy together.
It is good to know she is well taking care of,so we can relax on our vacations and not worry.

Kim and her family are the best. They are flexible with puck up and drop off times. Koko is very well loved when staying with Kim.
Kimberly made every effort to make sure my dog, Travis, was comfortable in her home. I feel very secure leaving him in her care.
Our golden had a great time at Kimberly's dog vacay. His arthritis would have made a traditional kennel uncomfortable. Thanks for all the personal attention and daily walks! We will be back!
Kim and her family are amazing. I will continue to use them when we travel because i know our baby is in excellent hands.
Kim is an amazing Mom and dog mom. My Missy had a very nice relaxed time on her vacay. Kim went above and beyond to take care and her needs. I appreciate the attention she gave her. If I find myself needing care again, Kim will be my first contact.
We were very impressed with our first Dog Vacay experience. I felt safe and confident with Kimberly watching our dogs and will use her services again.
Remy had another fun day at Kimberly. Thanks for taking good care of her. Josine

Thanks Kimberly and family.

Kim and her family are amazing. I would highly recommend her to anyone that wants their dog or dogs well taken care of. My dog Koko has a few health issues and they took wonderful care of her. She was actually not so happy to see me because she had such a good time.

Kim and her family are amazing. I received many photos showing my baby so happy! I did not have to worry about Koko at all on this trip and I am so grateful for that luxury!
We could not have asked for a better caregiver for Lacie while our family vacationed at Disneyland! Right from Kim's prompt initial response to her thorough first visit which included showing us throughout her home so we knew our dog would be safe to the daily photo updates showing us Lacie doing the things Lacie characteristically does, we were totally reassured Lacie was well looked after. Also, Kim went above and beyond to help us combat a flea problem Lacie had picked up a few days before our arrival.....Kim is trained as a veterinary assistant and her husband is a vet! What more could you ever ask for! To top it all off, when we came to pick Lacie up, Kim had her all bathed and looking whiter than we've ever seen her! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Kim!!! You are the best and it was such a pleasure to meet you and your family....wish we lived closer!! If we ever find ourselves in your area again we know where to go for the BEST!!
