About David

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We promise that your dog will have a ball! We live on 9 acres, including woods, trails, a fenced in yard, a screened in porch and more. We completely integrate your puppy into our family. They will have unlimited access to our furniture, bed -- our whole house.

We are a child-free home with over 17 years of pet sitting experience, experience with special needs pets, medication administration, specialized feeding requirements, behavioral problems and more.

Although we have 3 small dogs, we have the ability to separate your puppy from our dogs at all times (without kenneling or isolation) if your dog does not get along with other dogs. We have 3 friendly cats, but they will often retreat to the cabin loft if a visiting dog does not care for cats.

Due to our schedules, they are normally not left alone for more than about 4 hours at a time but are often with one or both of us.

We would love to give your pets a vacation while you are on vacation!

David and Sarah took wonderful care of our golden retriever and goldendoodle! I'm pretty sure they were sad to leave! Our dogs can be pretty rambunctious, but David and Sarah were wonderful with them! We loved getting the text updates while we were gone. Our dogs can't wait to stay there again!
If my 3 dogs could talk they would tell everyone about the great time they had on their first vacay with David K! I admit I was a bit anxious about the invasion of my pack- a golden retriever, a rambunctious lab, and a somewhat grouchy chihuahua. I had looked through several places to find someone who I thought could keep all 3 in a secure and fun environment. David K did a wonderful job! The lab was having so much fun he didn't want to come home, and all 3 were relaxed and peaceful when we came home. I highly recommend David K!
Sadie had a great time staying with Sarah. I know she enjoyed having a playmate while she was there. And we really loved getting the daily updates and photos while we were on vacation. I'm sure Sadie will be visiting again. Thanks so much for taking such good care of her.
Chewie's stay with Sarah went really well, and she was very accommodating. Thanks!

I would suggest that new clients be given more information than just the address to help find her since there is no mailbox or house number that can be seen. In fact, without talking to Sarah when trying to locate her home, I may never have found her lovely house hidden away behind trees high up on a hill.
I'm not sure where to begin with how wonderful Sarah and David are. I have an older German Shepherd an cat that both need medication daily. After spending a couple of days with Sarah and David I wasn't sure they wanted to come home. I'm hoping to introduced my other fur kids to them, so they can stay too. Sarah and David have a calm environment, wonderful and inviting home. I look forward to vacate with them in the future.
She was great and very helpful.
Our dog LOVED staying with Sarah! He was sad to leave. When choosing between a boarding facility and DogVacay, we will definitely choose DogVacay from here on out. Beorn got plenty of playtime. Since he's a high energy dog, I'm grateful that he got the love and exercise he needs! I really appreciated Sarah's nightly updates with how our pup was doing.
I am so pleased with our experience with Sarah! She opened her home to both of our dogs and treated them like they were one of her own! We received updates and pictures that made us feel so much more comfortable with leaving them behind. It made our weekend away so much more relaxing knowing that they were so well cared for. This is our first time using an in-home sitter for our dogs as opposed to a kennel, and I hope very much to use Sarah again!
Sarah is awesome! Both Jed & Cyrus came home as the same ole happy critters they are! ;-) Well, maybe not the "same" ole -- I think they were just a little bit more spoiled rotten! LOL They were so rotten before they got there I didn't think that was possible. Proves how well she got along with both of them. I would recommend her to anyone, and would definitely choose to leave my "kids" with her again.
I used Sarah for another stay for my dog Findlay, but as well had a friends dog. Sarah did excellent as usual with both of them. Toby had never been away from home so she did excellent with him and the owner was very happy with the updates. I travel out of my way an hour total for drop off and again for pick up because I know everything will be wonderful. Awesome experience.
Laney had so much fun with Sarah and the other pups and the PIGGIES. :) She was exhausted for a few days after which tells me she had a ball. Plus Sarah sent me updates throughout the weekend which I loved. 10/10 would book again :)
Absolutely a wonderful experience. Sarah is awesome. She took very good care of my precious like Findlay. The updates were great so I never worried. Sarah is very considerate and concerned with the owner & pets needs. I will without doubt be using her again. Very happy and easy experience.
