About Kaela

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome to Wilmington Creature Comforts! I have been an animal lover ever since I can remember and a pet owner since I was a small child. I still remember begging for my first kitten and my childhood best friend, a chocolate lab named Brittany. I now have small pets, including cats, birds, and sugar gliders, but I miss having a dog around.

Most of my experience is with larger dogs, including chow chows, Labrador retrievers, rottweilers, and shepherds. However, I love dogs of all breeds, sizes, and temperaments as long as they are friendly with the resident cats. Though the cats will often laze around all day, they will occasionally come to investigate your pup. If your pup is not familiar with cats, they are still welcome! The cats will be gated away in the bedroom (which is where they prefer to stay anyway).

Each vacay for your pup includes at least three walks a day. Walks can be around the complex, around the UNCW campus, or one of the local beaches. Overnight stays of multiple days will often go around town with my boyfriend and me. My boyfriend and I love to take pups to one of the local dog parks to play fetch, so your pup will be sure to get their exercise in! We also make sure that your pup gets adequate socialization and I generally always have at least one other pup (or pet) around.

I am able to supervise your pup for the majority of the day, but they may be left alone for an hour or two due to class schedules. I work from home, so when I am not in class, I am home with your pet. Transportation to vet care is provided in case of emergency. We also offer bathing and additional walks depending on the needs of the pet. If your pet needs to be medicated, I am more than willing to do so. Just please let me know beforehand so I can be prepared with pill pockets or extra cheese to hide pills in!

Ask me about multiple pup or weekly rates! I'm more than happy to discuss pricing and offer discounts. I believe every pet deserves quality care regardless of budget. I also offer discounts for cat and exotic pet care!

Kaela provided love and attention to our pampered lab, and with the added convenience of a private dog park less than 20 yards from her doorstep, a considerable amount of exercise and outdoor activity. Kaela knows cats and dogs, their needs, and how to keep them stimulated and happy. So glad to have found her!

Kaela took great care of Jack! She sent photos and videos of him so that I could keep up with him while I was away. I would definitely recommend Kaela!
Great
Nutt-Butt had a wonderful time with Kaela!!!!! Very kind person, we are going to have her keep him again in May when we visit Carolina Beach again!!!! Thank you again Kaela!!!!! Donna B.
Kaela did not send me updates on my pup until I texted her wondering what was going on. It was our first timing doing dog vacay and were nervous leaving our dog with a stranger. I waited one day to see when she would text me.... at 10pm I caved and texted Kaela to see how my dog was. Only then did I get photos and an update.

Kaela is great to deal with and very flexible! She got me out of a bind and has helped me move to the area by taking care of my puppy while I start work and everything! I appreciate her being able to take her on short notice! I'd recommend everyone give her a chance!

Duke had an excellent time.
My pups had a blast. My dog Duke use to always stay at the vet when I went away but I just adopted a new fur baby pixie and she isn't spayed yet so I wasn't sure what to do. I found Kaela on dog vacay and messaged her the night before I needed someone and she got right back to me. She kept me updated with pictures of the pups all weekend and they looked so happy. Will def use her again may even just drop the pups off for a day of play. Kaela is def someone who loves animals and will treat them like her own

My dog and two guinea pigs stayed with Kaela for nearly three weeks. She was so nurturing and attentive - a true animal lover. My dog had been sick while I was gone and Kaela kept me constantly informed about his health and even went to the vet to get special food for him! She goes above and beyond and I would highly recommend her.

Kaela did an excellent job of taking care of our Hailey. My family member that normally keeps my pets was unable to at the last minute. So glad we found Kaela will definitely use her again.
Kaela is such a wonderful person who clearly loves animals! I felt very comfortable leaving my dogs with her. She treats them like family, which is the only people I ever leave my pets with. I could not this last time, so finding Kaela was truly a blessing! She kept us updated with pictures, took them on walks, and even let them sleep with her! I trust her with my dogs and will definitely be using her again in the future! I have already recommended her to others! If you are in need of a sitter for your pets, I would definitely recommend Kaela!

Thank you Kaela for everything!

Kaela did a fantastic job with our pups! She took great care of both our dogs and was very good about keeping us notified of things and sent awesome picture updates. Will definitely be returning to Kaela in the future!
I can not say enough about how wonderful the entire experience with Kaela was. She was a truly sweet and caring individual who has a deep passion for animals.
Her communication was efficient and fast and she kept us up to date every day we were away.
She was absolutely wonderful with our two little Schnauzers and she went above and beyond all our expectations!
Thank you, Kaela.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend or to come back to her for any other needs.

My dog had a good stay with Kaela. She was very pleasant and kept me updated with pictures throughout his stay.
Kaela was great with our pets, she sent us updates and pics while she had them. She went way above and beyond the level of care you would get from any kennel for a very reasonable price. She took them out and exercised and played with them too. She was also very accommodating when we needed to stay an extra day and sent us a very convenient link to add the additional day through dog vacay. We will definitely use and recommend her in the future!
