Cathy LOVES dogs!! Not only does she love dogs, but she is innately tuned into them, notices personality traits and works with them and understands dogs on a level that I wish I had a fraction of.

I have known Cathy for 18 years and I can say, unequivocally, she is one of the most conscientious people I know. She will truly take care of your dog as if he or she were her own ...

When Cathy watches your pet

I love to walk on trails through the woods, find meadows and open spaces, & allow dogs off-leash time if the dog is reliable & the owner permits. I also enjoy using a chuck-it & ball for fetching fun. I'm happy to take well-socialized dogs to the Ashland Dog Park. If you would like a drop-in visit, I can bring my well-socialized dog Buddy for a fun doggie play date! (Or I can come alone.)
