Our little dog Lucky just loves going over to Kim’s Urban Hounds for play dates or scheduled care when I my travel or am just running errands. Kim provides a caring, fun, and safe environment for the pets she takes in. Lucky just absolutely loves Kim. He gets so excited when I drop him off. Her two little dogs, Norman & Hank are super fun and Lucky likes to play with the Kitty Cat, Fiona too. Kim’s Urban Hounds provides a reliable, affordable, fun, and safe pet care service.

Victor and Maize

I want to express my extreme appreciation for your exceptional performance dog-sitting Maize and Victor. My wife and I are usually hesitant to leave our precious family members with anyone else. I am so grateful that we connected. Your appreciation for our angst can’t be overstated. From your “text” message showing a picture of our dogs after you picked them up, to a mid-stay text with another picture of them playing, and to your offer to make sure I was back in town before returning them… demonstrate an acute understanding of your client’s need to feel their companions are in great hands. None of this was advertised or expected, but Oh what a joy to get those updates. It placed me completely at ease. Now, when other opportunities arise, it is no longer a consideration to worry about “But what am I going to do with the dogs?” I have someone I completely trust to look after their needs. My only worry now is will my dogs want me back! THANK-YOU, I have never felt so comfortable leaving my pets

Ava Grace

I would highly recommend Kim’s Urban Hounds Pet Sitting to anyone who needs reliable pet care. Kim took great care of Ava, my high-maintenance Jack Russel. She even texted me photos of my dog while she was in her care, and it gave me great peace of mind to see my dog being pampered and loved. Ava jumps out of the car and runs to their door as soon as we park there. Kim is a reliable sitter and really cares for the dogs. She has especially been helpful when I couldn’t get home from work and needed the Ava walked. She always leaves wonderful notes on her visit. So kind, thoughtful and very attentive. Highly, highly recommend!

We are so HAPPY we found Kim’s Urban Hounds.

I feel great that Bella has a place to go to play with other dogs during the day. I feel great that Bella has a place to go to play with other dogs during the day. I would say that Bella seems excited to go. I’ve taken her to dog day camp at Petsmart and she doesn’t seem like she wants to go but when I drop her at Kim’s place, she is very excited and even forgets that I am leaving her there!

Gypsy and Pippin

After several disappointing experiences with dog walkers, I was fortunate to have connected with Kim from Kim’s Urban Hounds. I like the balance in her professional as well as personal approach. She takes the job seriously and is very dependable. But most importantly my dogs love her. It is easy to tell that she loves what she does in the way she interacts with my dogs. I have to admit that I am the worrying kind when it comes to my pets. I need to be assured that they will have the best of care in my absence. Knowing that Kim is taking care of them gives me peace that peace of mind. I recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone who is looking for the highest quality of care for their pets

Gracie seemed very relaxed when we got home, but glad to see us! We had a great trip. Thank you again for taking care of her so well and for meeting all of our needs on such short notice. I have answered the questions below and feel free to use them on your website. Please let me know if I can do anything else and hopefully we will see you again soon!

I adopted my first dog Jasper a little over a year ago. I knew I would be overly protective, worry too much and spoil him too much. Little did I know that I would be fiercely protective (to a fault), and worry about him constantly. I wanted someone to walk Jasper a couple times a day, someone I trusted, someone reliable and someone Jasper liked. Kim turned out to be all of those things and more. Jasper absolutely loves Kim and looks forward to her twice daily visits. I never worry while I’m at work – knowing that Kim will be walking Jasper twice a day. Kim is dependable, responsible and trustworthy. She is very flexible with scheduling if needed, and she treats Jasper as if he were her own. I highly recommend Kim for any of your dog walking or any other pet care needs. Jasper and I don’t know what we would do without her, she has become a part of our family.

I called Kim’s Urban Hounds at the recommendation of another service – she was the only dog-walking service I could find who was willing to work with potentially aggressive dogs. She immediately assured me that it wouldn’t be a problem and set up a time to come meet Cody. As soon as she walked through the door, he was in love. He ran right over to her and begged for head rubs and cuddles. This is a dog who took months to warm up to my family, but he took seconds to warm up to Kim – she just has a way with animals. Her employees are high-quality as well – at the moment, another (KUH) walker is taking care of my dog, and he is just as well behaved for her as he is for Kim (which is absolutely unheard of.) I would highly recommend her service without reservation.

Thank you so very much for taking such amazing care of Rosebud! She misses you guys. And, also for taking such great care of Kumquat the guinea pig and Little Fur Ball and Charles, our fish! Estella and I are truly thankful we found you, and will most definitely be calling you when we travel next.
