Kaitlyn was great! My dog loved loved making friends with her dogs. She sent updates and pictures of my dog having fun. I’ll definitely be calling Kaitlyn the next time we have to be away.

Metro seemed to have a great time at Kaitlyn's house. He played a lot with her two dogs and by the second day of his visit, he was very happy to see them and to continue playing with them. We will definitely use Kaitlyn's services again.

Kaitlyn is fantastic!! We had a worry free vacation knowing our babies were well taken care of. She had a house full of pups and never received a complaint .( I'm sure the first couple days were challenging figuring them all out...lol )We received a lot of pics and she was available any time we had questions about how things were going. Kaitlyn was willing to do a couple pre vacation visits and brought her ...

PhD candidate will care for dogs!

Hi! I'm a PhD candidate at the University of North Texas working on my dissertation in English Literature. I have a dog of my own, Gary, and my roommate's dog, Aki, both of whom love to make other canine friends! I'm available most days all day and can watch your dogs in my home, check on them in your home, and take them for walks and potty breaks. I'm happy to entertain them with walks, ...

What Kaitlyn would like to know about your dog

I need to know if the dog is comfortable around other dogs. I will accept them either way, as long as they are not aggressive! If your dog has separation anxiety, let me know so I can be extra gentle and attentive. I also like to know their favorite things to do, how much they regularly walk, how often they usually go to the bathroom--that kind of thing. I definitely need to know if they have allergies!

I am totally comfortable with all breeds, but note that I won't be able to run, so let me know if your muscular dogs are allowed to go to the dog park to really get their energy out! I also absolutely ADORE corgis, squee over wrinkly pups, and I'm crazy for pitties! I hope to spend time with your dogs soon!

Due to my dog, Gary's, preferences, I cannot accept puppies under 1 year and I will only be accepting dogs under 4 based on Gary and Aki's comfort during the meet and greet. Dogs OLDER than 4 years are always welcome!

When Kaitlyn watches your pet

We will definitely end up taking selfies and if the lighting is right, we might do an all-out photo shoot. We will go on walks around the neighborhood. If the dog parents are comfortable with it, I can also take the dogs to the dog park so they can get lots of exercise (but I will watch them closely! No worries about that!). We can also play fetch or play with squeaky toys and interact with the neighborhood dogs (of which there are many) if your dog likes to make friends. On nicer days, we might also go on campus! UNT is super dog friendly with lots of paths and grassy areas for playing!

My friends and I love to go to dog-friendly places around town, like Harvest House and the original Viet Bites, so your pup might get to go out to dinner if you're comfortable with that!

I spend most of my time working from home, so I am super accessible for dogs that need more attention!
