    Kona has been to Kit's House for over a year now and LOVES it. We feel that the socialization with all the other different sizes/breeds is beneficial along with good daily walks. Kit has a great understanding of dogs and we highly recommend him!

    My sweet one-eyed Fox Terrier, Lilly, gets the best care at Kit's. She doesn't mind when I drop her off for overnight stays. Best of all, when I pick her up, she is happy and not all desperate to leave. Kit makes me feel as though my dog is special.

    Kit has a good rapport with dogs. He's intuitive about dog behavior and can provide a loving and playful environment when you're not available.

    Otto, our dog, loves going to Kit's house. He has plenty of room to roam out back and play with the other dogs. He also gets a good long walk and comes home wiped out. Kit's been patient enough to work with me on some of my dog's behavioral quirks as well.

    Kit loves dogs, all kinds of dogs. And he spends a good amount of time with them. And he has a great sense of humor. I would leave my dog with Kit in a flash; however, I just have cats right now.

    Sadie loves going to Kit's. She enjoys playing with Penny and the other dogs. I love it because it's like another home for my puppy. Kit is great and treats the dogs as if they're his own. He's very flexible and accommodating and always has great tips.

    We highly recommend Kit Pogarsky's Doggy Doggy dog boarding and day care. We have an energetic dog who likes to be near his people, and a dog kennel just wasn't right for him. When we first contacted Kit, he responded promptly and answered all our questions, and suggested we drop by to introduce our dog a few days before we went away. It was a great suggestion, as Griffie was then familiar with Doggy Doggy and Kit when we dropped him off to go out of town. Griffin has now stayed at Doggy Doggy several times, and we are totally comfortable leaving him for stays of a few days or a week or more. We know that for a reasonable price, our dog is getting the attention and exercise he craves and needs, and also gets to chill out in a great space and yard in Alameda. Very happy to recommend Doggy Doggy, -Mavis and Nick Marble

    Hendrix our 5 year old Chocolet Lab knows the way to Kits house! We live 2 blocks away and if we try to go down Willow without taking the left he gets upset! He loves Kit! The first time he stayed over he did not know how to go down stairs never haveing had to in his life. With patience from Kit he has mastered stairs now! Pat, and Hendrix and I went on an 8 mile hike in Sunole and Pat brushed him good and then we left for Yosemite. Hendrix stayed with Kit. Kit gave Hendrix extra care by removing 2 ticks he found while we were away!Thank you Kit! Doggy Doggy is Hendix home away from home. Never better!

    My master has been leaving me at Kit's house for several years now whenever she goes on vacation. I love camp Kit! There are often other friendly dogs to play with, and I love the yard and sleeping room. I take Kit for many walks when I am staying with his family, and often am invited to "hang" with the family in their people-house. The neighborhood is safe and fun to explore. When I am at Kit's I hardly miss my master....of course I'm a golden retriever, so I love everyone! I highly recommend Kit's House to any of my canine friends!

INTRODUCTION to OUR BOARDING SERVICES: Please call me to make a appointment to visit my home with your dog.
