Catherine was very flexible with me on drop off and pick up. Due to my busy schedule I had to adjust my drop off and pick up times.
I will continue to use her service. ; )

Catherine was absolutely amazing while I was away at a wedding! She took care of my pups when a lot of others wouldn't when timing was bad with one of them! Thank you so much Catherine!

When Catherine watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
On mornings and evenings when I only have a set amount of time I will take your dog on a walk around my apartment complex. If I am pet sitting your dog on days where I am off of work, I would gladly take them to nearby fenced in dog parks and on much longer walks around town (physical ability of dog considered).

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Your dog will sleep in it's kennel (if provided), or bed.

Time I'll spend with your dog
On my days off from work, your pet will have as many hours of my attention as he/she would like. On days when I work, I would be with your pet in the morning for a feeding and a short walk, I can usually come home for a lunch break walk, and a longer evening walk before and after their dinner. I would be away for no longer than 7 hours at a time.
