Hi, I am a very nervous owner. A dog I loved was killed due to a sitter's negligence. So I was very apprehensive in spite of Cathy's good reviews. I really liked her, and she was very nice to my Moxie. I am afraid I have spoiled her after losing my last dog. Cathy was very reassuring to me. I suspect, as with trainers, psychological handling of the owners is most of her job. Maggie

Wally had a wonderful experience. Cathy knows how to make a dog comfortable in her home and relieves the stress of separation of both owner and pet.

One on One Care -"Just Like Home"!

My name is Cathy. I am a canine lover and current owner of a Blue Merle Cockapoo named Jade. I've always had dogs in my home and I understand how to make them feel safe, secure and loved. Clients return to me again and again because I take the most exceptional care of their dogs. The only testimonial that really counts: Dogs' tails start wagging when they come to my home, knowing they are coming ...

What Cathy would like to know about your dog

I provide care for dogs under 40 pounds due to the size of my dog, yard and Condo.
It's very important to know any medical issues, anxieties and quirks so I can provide the individualized care your furry companion deserves. Every animal has it's own way of communicating, dealing with the stress of being with a new sitter until we get used to each other. Comprehensively reviewing your pet's behavior can help me transition your furry friend. They will settle in and soon begin looking forward to coming to my house!

When Cathy watches your pet

If I do care for a walking dog, my Jade, I, along with my husband, like to walk around the trails at Providence Point. Even doing a short walk several blocks around our neighborhood if it's been raining hard. That's between raindrops!
I need written permission to drive your dog in my car. It's good to have in case of emergencies.
My yard is little, but nice for playing/pottying for smaller dogs. I also have access to the dogs playing on a hillside next to my yard. I do leash them on a 30' leash for their safety. Some dogs like to use this to watch the world go by while others want to play frisbee or ball. Some like the shady tree or lying in the sun.
A few bigger dogs do well being taken to the Sammamish Dog Park at owners request.
I will be happy to brush and give belly rubs, exercise/play in any way appropriate for your pet.
Indoor ball down my hallway on rainy days is always an option with Jade!

***VACCINATIONS need to be up to date along with worming. Definitely the Kennel cough vaccine. If dogs are found to have fleas, ticks or worms I will not be able to accept them.
