About Kenyatta

16 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have been a pet owner for 22 years. I truly believe that caring for pets is very therapeutic. Looking after my four legged kids as well as my 2 legged ones is the best start to the beginning and end of my day. I have 2 Rough Collie's both are 4, 3 sons ages 21yrs, 8yrs and 9 months old. All of them have been around dogs all of their lives and enjoy their 4 legged siblings as well. Rocky and Candy love all people and other dogs as well. They really look after the smaller guys their breed has a love for small animals and babies. My female candy is our house order keeper. Because she is in the herding breed she keeps every body in line. Our companions enjoy being out in the backyard for fetch games and good old fashion squirrel watching lol. When inside the house they have full range of the house, no room is off limit. They do spend a lot of their time outdoors but when it's too hot they love to sit in the family room were the floors are radiant heat/cool controlled. After walks and fun time in the yard ends, we sit around for lots of hugs, rubs and belly scratches. All dogs living with us while you're away will feel like family and at home. All you need to bring is something from home to help ease any anxiety that might accur (bed, toys, etc.), food and up to date pet info. All dogs must be current with pet vaccinations.

Kenyatta took on our senior dog who had trouble walking. She let us know his status and movements. She make him comfortable and took care of his medical needs. We would recommend her to anyone who needs a sitter for their pet.

My daughter and dog immediately feel in love with Kennyatta. My dog, Marley, got along very well with her dogs. It was really nice that Kennyatta sent daily pictures showing Marley playing, resting, etc. And lastly my dog was calm and more affectionate when we returned home.

Dear Kenyatta,

Dutch and Metz want to thank you very much! They also say they want to come for daycare visits to play with their new friends.

Thank you very much. You made our trip so much more pleasant knowing that our buddies were so very well taken care of.

Wishing you all the best and hope to see you very soon.

With our greatest thanks
Kris and Tom

Atlas loves kenyatta!
Kenyatta was AWESOME! My kids were very worried about leaving their puppies when we went out of town. Kenyatta sent us messages and pictures at least three times a day. When my 4 year old son was very worried about his puppy, Kenyatta talked to him and reassured him that everything was going great. In the past my one dog has lost weight when he was in boarding, with Kenyatta he never stopped eating! Kenyatta truly treated my four legged babies like one of her own. When the weather was very hot, she kept the dogs inside and took them on short walks. We plan on using Kenyatta whenever we need a sitter for our fur babies!

Very happy with the care that my dogs received. Kenyatta sent me piks showing their playing. They were both treated well and came home happy. I will use Kenyatta's services again and refer others to her.
The dogs had a great time! They enjoyed Kenyatta's big yard and comfortable house, and her own pet dogs are friendly and mellow - good hosts for the visitor dogs.

Kenyatta had a tieout available for my dog-escape-artist who can jump over a 5 foot fence - so he was able to hang out and play with the other dogs in the yard while still being secured. He has to be secured in my own yard for the same reason - any normal dog who isn't trying to escape and "see the world!" would be secure in Kenyatta's yard without a tieout, but she can provide a tieout if needed. My shorter dog had a great time running around free.

My two dogs can't eat together because one gobbles everything up. Kenyatta did a great job supervising and separating all the dogs for feeding time so that everyone got to eat without having to compete.

Kenyatta was flexible about pick-up and drop off times, so when I got back from vacation early and wanted to get the dogs in the morning instead of the evening, that was not a problem.

Definitely recommend - we will go to Kenyatta again for vacations and day care, too.

I used this service for the first time while out of town on Labor Day. There were no issues obtaining a reservation with Kenyatta. Me and my daughter immediately fell in love with Kenyatta's beautiful personality and her well mannered dogs!! Our Marley had so much fun with her dogs. I plan to use her service again!!

Kenyatta is awesome!
Kenyatta was warm and welcoming to me and my pet.
I could tell by meeting Kenyatta and talking to her that she loved pets.
She sent updates and pictures every day, I appreciated those updates.
I felt comfortable leaving my pet with her and knew my dog enjoyed her little vacation away from home.
Good job Kenyatta!

Our dog Ziggy is blind and arthritic. He stayed with Kenyatta for 9 days and came home content and very confident of his surroundings. It might be because he became friends with Kenyatta's dogs and was happy to be part of a pack but I think it's because she took such good care of him. Kenyatta's home is set up to really make Ziggy - or any dog - feel "at home." She also gave him special love the first night when he began to howl - as beagles tend to do when lonely. I would recommend her highly.

I am very late in posting my review but my pup Arlo had a wonderful time with Kenyatta and family while I was away. I made a reservation last minute as my hubby was called into work so was unable to keep Arlo while my daughter and I were away. Kenyatta was very nice to take me at such short notice. Arlo loved it so much that he didn't want to leave. i was sent pictures and updates. I would definitely recommend her and I will be booking with her again.

Really great
She took care of my dog for a week while I was on vacation. She always kept me updated with pictures and text messages. She was extremely caring and nice. I would highly recommend her and I'll use her again in the future.
Kenyatta was very accommodating when taking care of our boxer. She scheduled a meet and greet quickly, and then was available for both our drop off and pick up, even though they weren't the most convenient times. We will be using her again!
Last minute trip with my kids to Six Flags, I was able to book Kenyatta with just a few hours to spare. Reese had a great time, nice clean environment, dogs to play with and very professional.
Kenyatta is a loving person. She took care of our dog with care. She kept us up to date with pictures. We felt very welcomed when we first met her. Would recommend to anyone.
