About Kimberly

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! My name is Kim; I am a musician and am home most of the day so your pup will be supervised during their stay. We also only take one reservation at a time to ensure the comfort of our guests. I just moved to Kalamazoo with my husband and our fuzzy child Oscar, and even though we will miss our previous DogVacay clients we look forward to making new furry friends in Kalamazoo. I have been around dogs my whole life and even worked as a veterinary assistant so I am comfortable with administering medications if needed . Our home is filled with tons of comfy places to snuggle (laps included) and plenty of love to go around. We have a beautiful enclosed backyard where your pup can run around safely and we also take daily walks around our neighborhood. Playtime and walking schedules can be customized to meet the needs of your fuzzy child. We will treat your pup as one of our own.

Current policies:
-Any guests picked up after 2:00pm are subject to Day Care fee.
-Pups with special/medical needs or that are high maintenance, may be subject to an additional fee of $10 and up.
-A late fee may apply if you are more than one hour late for our predetermined pick up time. We understand that sometimes there are unforeseen circumstances while traveling, we simply ask that you keep us updated.

*CALENDAR UPDATE*
For the comfort of our furry vacationers we currently have two slots available for reservations. If your pup has stayed with us before and a date you are looking at is marked as unavailable don't panic! Just contact me and I will do my best to accommodate your schedule.

Kimberly was wonderful with Cotton. We were in town visiting for the weekend and she took great care of Cotton while we were able to enjoy our stay. She has a great fenced backyard where Cotton enjoyed running around with Kimberly's two small dogs. I don't think he even missed us!

Kimberly was super responsive to inquiries, and flexible with providing the type of care that our dog needed. She had great suggestions for how to make my dog comfortable while I was away, provided daily updates and pictures, and was great about making sure that everything was secure after her departure.

We will definitely be working with her again!

First I need to admit that our dog, Bugs, is pretty spoiled. She is lucky enough to have someone home with her all day, so I was looking for someone willing to come stay at our home while we were on vacation. Kimberly was great... send texts and pictures as updates and I found that very helpful in not worrying about how Bugs was doing while we were gone! I was so grateful that Kimberly and Bugs got along so well. We ended up extending our vacation for a day and Kimberly was able to make that work with her schedule. I know that we will definitely schedule Kimberly any time we need someone to look after Bugs. On our next short trip, we may have Bugs stay at Kimberly's house so she will have the chance to hang out with Kimberly's furry family!
