No Females in Heat
Great! Very professional and so sweet. Made it easy for us especially with pick up and drop off times. Received a picture or video every day which eased our nerves as first time leaving Theo with someone else. Her dog Rocket is very social and made Theo feel right at home.
Catherine is an EXCELLENT dog sitter. She was very flexible with our schedule and never made me feel bad about our changing plans. I felt very comfortable leaving Riggs with her and she was sure to communicate with me multiple times throughout his stay, reassuring me and sending me lots of pictures! When we got home and unpacked his bag, we found a dog toy with a thank you note to Riggs which was so ...
Catherine is my neighbor. Getting to know her has been such a joy. Her heart for her fur-babies is tangible. She is trustworthy, kind and reliable! You will not be sorry if you trust your fur-babies to her!

What Catherine would like to know about your dog
My focus is on providing quality, family-style in-home boarding at affordable rates. I interview owners carefully re: your pet's behavioral history, medical needs, and socialization/play preferences, and I work with you to produce a customized care plan. Meet-and-greets are an essential part of this process! If I am unable to meet your pup before their stay, a "virtual" telephone meet and greet and modified care plan will be required.
I have a special place in my heart for "snow dogs" (Husky, Malamute, Samoyed) and Asian Spitz breeds (Chow Chow, Akita, Kai Ken, Shiba Inu, etc.). There is also a special place in my home for high-energy dogs who can keep up with my husky during a full day of play! But we call Rocket our "social director" for a reason - as much as he loves to run with other big dogs, but is patient and gentle with even the littlest pups (don't let his size fool you, he's a puppy at heart! And a total softy, too).
For boarders - I prefer to provide my own kennels, beds, food dishes and toys for guest pets. This is to reduce the risk of loss or damage to your items. However, if your pup has a favorite dog bed, toy, or other item that will help make him or her feel more secure during the stay, we'll work out how to ensure only your dog has access to those items as part of the care plan.
Three items pet parents *must* bring to all boarding appointments, or have available and accessible during homesitting stays: sufficient food (and feeding instructions), a 6' standard (non-retractable) leash, and a favorite "treat" (to be used for rewarding good behavior).
Whether you just need a sitter for a weekend away or are seeking recurring or long-term pet care, my committment to you is honesty, clear communication, 100% transparency and the best possible standard of service to you and your pets!
