Older Dogs

I chose Kim to care for several of my senior Golden Retrievers that I adopted.  Her nurturing care and total commitment enabled them to thrive in a new environment.  I will  always be truly grateful for her devotion and miss her since she moved to Florida.

Trust and Love

After online searches and reviews we came across K9 Kim. They say first impression is everything. As soon and my husband and I met Kim we knew right away she was a pet lover, and someone we could trust.
Right away she bonded with our 3 young cats. We went away for 5 days, everyday we received updates, pictures and even videos putting our mind at ease. She didn't just sit around and house sit, she played with them and took her time to get to know them. She went way above and beyond our expectations.
We also like to add, with less than a days notice Kim came to our rescue with my sons 2 cats as well. She definitely saved the day!!! THANK YOU!!

Finally found kim

Kim is amazing at her job. I used her dog walking services while we were away for a long weekend. She down right spoiled my 2 dogs. I'm pretty sure they thought they were on a staycation! She will work with your preferences and I felt completely comfortable with her. My husband and I kept thinking all weekend, thank goodness we found Kim! Wish we would have found her sooner. She is organized, reliable, thorough, loving, and then to top it off, priced very fair. Going out of town or being gone all day was stressful with our dogs, but no more. Kim is great. We can't wait to have her back!.

Kim was great!

I have always found it hard to leave my beautiful dog with just "anyone".  Along came K9 Kim here in Oviedo and I immediately felt at ease. It was easy to see why she came so highly recommended.

Huge Shout out!

I wanted to give a huge shout out to K9 Kim owner Kim Shaughnessy, who did an AMAZING job caring for our 2 Goldens for 9 days while we were away.  We received daily pictures and detailed updates. We were able to enjoy our entire vacation knowing our dogs were being very well cared for. Never boarding our dogs again!

Last minute response

Kim had taken good care of my two fur babies.  She responded on very short notice and we were able to relax and enjoy our time away knowing the dogs were being pampered.  She sends texts and photos with every visit and eases your mind seeing your babies having fun while you are away.

My Babies

I hate leaving my babies but K9 Kim is so amazing I am able to relax and know they are well taken care of. She texts updates and pictures while she is with them which helps put my mind at ease. Thanks K9 Kim!

Going the extra mile

We recently went on vacation and hired K9 Kim to watch our dog.  He utilizes the doggie door to go outside, so we just needed quick visits.  Even though my dog and Kim's dog have played together in the past, we were still surprised she took Clyde over to her home and let him spend a few nights there. She did this out of love for our dog.  You can't get that care anywhere else!​

Our mission

Pet resort no more.....

We went away for a week's vacation and I had to board our pets since both of our long-term pet sitters moved away.  I thought our dogs would do well at an upscale pet resort, but when we came home, our chihuahua was so traumatized that she almost had to be hospitalized from stress anxiety and not eating.  I must have spent $700 between boarding and Vet visits.  I decided this would be the last time I would board my pets.  I now will use K9 Kim for our upcoming pet sits.  She is friendly and kind and our dogs LOVE her!

High Energy dog

Because we have a high energy dog and one who is attached to us, we wanted to make sure he would be exercised greatly and be given lots of attention. Kim took the extra time to learn about Tex, noting our requests and our his wants. We can tell she runs and plays with him during her visits as he is exhausted when we return home. It is always nice to receive a detailed update along with pictures  We were extremely pleased with the care K9 Kim provided.

extra time building trust

K9 KIm has been great with my little Pete who was a rescue and super skittish and scared. She has spent a lot of time getting him to trust her and is now helping socialize him during his afternoon walks.

About the Owner

Growing up I have always had a tremendous passion for pets.  Through my teenage years, I volunteered at local shelters and my spending money was earned by caring for both dogs and children. My hope was to apply all I've learned and one day start my own pet sitting/dog walking business. I am happy to continue to be fulfilling my dream each day.  My many experiences in raising dogs from as early as puppy stage has tremendously helped me to learn more about each. I am ready with open arms to meet all new fur friends, even those who come with challenges.  After having children, my family rescued a dog with a long list of behavioral/medical issues but through TLC we were able to enjoy her for 12 wonderful years. I would be FURever happy to care for your "family member" in your absence.
