    “Always looking for new dog friends🐾”

    Hey there! I have a lifetime of experience with my own pups and have been watching clients’ dogs professionally for more than 15 years! I’m always glad to meet new faces. Puppy dog eyes are my weakness.

    I'm Kristina, the mother of a wonderful 2 yo daughter named Katerina. My husband passed away last year so I'm taking some time off from the restaurant business to spend with her and our own yellow lab, Henry. I love dogs and used to help my neighbor who trained K9s and regular doggos. When I was younger I had a Jack Russell who passed obedience and then trick school and a lab who volunteered at the local prison, helping to rehab inmates. I think all dogs are just little ppl in fur coats!

    I’ve been a dog owner my whole life starting with one Siberian husky and eventually working up to a mushing tour-guide/racing kennel of seventy Alaskan huskies that I helped to maintain along with my father and mother. I’ve placed in many mushing races such as the U.P. 200’s Midnight Run and the Copper Dog 150. My rare experience with my canine teammates helped me to create a close bond with them and gave me insight into how our fuzzy friends think, learn, and develop. Every animal deserves, and most appreciate, patience, care, and attention. In return, they give us the gift of their love, loyalty, and purity of heart. I take the guardianship of any life form as a high and noble responsibility and am confident that I will meet your standards of care to the letter. I have no doubt that my unique experience, positive attitude, and attention to detail will all serve as valuable assets to my clients and partners. I am eager to hear from and, hopefully, work with you. Best wishes,Roy

Within a few blocks of 5th & Elm, there are two dog-friendly hotels, the Quality Inn and Suites and the Magnuson Hotel Franklin Square, as well as two beautiful parks. You'll enjoy majestic views of the waterway from Bridgeview Park and Huron Street Waterfront Park, where you will find large grassy areas, a boardwalk, and fishing piers.
