Happy Howls

Willow & Mona


Kristal, Kathy, and Traci are phenomenal at taking care of our 2 girls, Mona and Willow, during the day. Our minds are put at ease knowing that the girls are in great hands. We love receiving the emails and pics highlighting their time together. The  team helps the girls stick to their routine while we are at work. We couldn’t be happier knowing that our dogs are in loving hands.  -Erika

We found Kristal and her team shortly after moving to Waconia and we have never looked back. Anytime we are anticipating a trip we contact Kristal first thing. She has even stepped in several times last minute when we have had emergencies and had to leave suddenly. Our boys love Kristal and even when we come home the boys still watch out the window for her! Kristal does so much extra, mail collecting, watering flowers and in good weather even walks our boys!
We trust our boys with Kristal and her team and we don’t worry about them. Love getting the twice daily updates.
Thanks so much Kristal for all you and your team do! -Cheri



The team at From the Paws Up are so wonderful.  They have been walking Deuce daily since he was 6 months old.  He loves to shower them with kisses when they arrive.  I never worry about the visits, the team is loving, reliable (even getting him out during crappy weather)  and provides daily updates with fun pictures.--Norma 



Kristal and her staff have done a wonderful job over the past several years with out yellow lab 'Maddie'. From the Paws Up does an exceptional job caring for Maddie when I am away. A very professional, well run business that provides excellent, high quality care. Highly recommend!
