Cathy is one of my neighbors, and one of the most knowledgeable, loving and responsible Dog Moms I have ever known. She goes to great lengths to make sure her four-legged kids are happy and healthy. For example, her 14-year-old Schnauzer sometimes has trouble walking, but she makes sure he still gets outside by using a small stroller. This, to me, is indicative of the depth of her love of not only her own pets ...

Dogs (and cats) love my belly rubs

Under my care, your dog(s) will have my undivided attention. I have years of experience playing with, raising, walking, feeding, grooming, medicating and loving dogs. Among the hundreds of dogs I've met, almost every dog immediately likes me. After permitting myself to be thoroughly inspected, I generally cement a bond with an ear or butt scratch. I am looking forward to meeting your dog (or dogs) to walk or to care for in your ...

What Cathy would like to know about your dog

Before caring for you dog(s), I want to meet your pet and see whether both you and I are comfortable with me caring for your dog. If you conclude that I am an appropriate match for your dog, I would want to know the details of reaching you, the dog's feeding schedule, specifics of what's to be fed, instructions on separation if two or more dogs, medication details (if any), veterinarian's name and phone number and any strong likes/dislikes/anxieties that the dog might have. In addition, I would want to know what things the dog(s) likes to do and anything that alarms/upsets the her/him. I want my visits to meet both the your expectations and dog's needs. We would also establish the number of visits/day that I would do.

Can provide daily exercise

I enjoy walking dogs in areas what permit them both exercise and lots of doggie sniffs. The "where" depends on your neighborhood. I have walked dogs on downtown sidewalks, in the roadway for streets with no sidewalks, quiet neighborhoods, etc. I love taking doggies to parks, including dog parks. I have thrown endless balls, jogged with dogs and permitted dogs off leash in appropriately fenced areas and played tug of war with a favorite toy, I also give outstanding doggie tummy rubs, ear scratches, body stroking and but rubs. If your dog enjoys a bit wrestling, I do that, too.
