We were in Edwardsville visiting friends and were looking for some doggie day care so we could go into St Louis. Catherine was very helpful in accommodating our schedule. She made sure Heidi was comfortable with her dogs and made sure she understood Heidi’s needs. Catherine sent several photos. I especially liked the one of Heidi and the greyhound. They were buds. I felt very comfortable leaving Heidi with Catherine. Thanks.

Catie was great! She was punctual, friendly, and incredibly sweet with Oso. My dog is a very excitable St. Bernard mix and she managed him gently and confidently without hesitation. I felt really comfortable letting her walk him, and decided immediately that I will have her continue to take care of him.
