We have nothing but positive things to say about Kat! She took excellent care of our energetic, sweet and sometimes skittish 6 year old dog. During our meet and greet, our pup was immediately at ease around Kat and so was I. She is caring, calm and personable. He made himself at home in her apartment while Kat and I chatted for a while.
During our trip, we received daily updates and adorable photos of ...

Our little guy LOVES Kat!!! She's very sweet, communicative, punctual, and you can definitely tell she really enjoys taking care of and loves animals. She sends us lots of pictures to let us know how he is doing and he always has a HUGE smile on his face. We have used her numerous times will continue to use Kat for upcoming stays and/or visits <3

Kat was wonderful. She had such a calm, caring, loving disposition. It was our first time leaving our "spoiled little baby", a 6 month old French bulldog, for an extended weekend. Kat made our trip stress and guilt free as she sent us updates and pictures of our smiling, happy little boy doing all the things he loves. We knew he was well cared for, stress free, and it was like he was having his ...

What Kat would like to know about your dog

When Kat watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I walk every morning around my neighborhood, which is a very safe, family friendly area with that beautiful Queens charm. I also live within walking distance to Dutch Kills Park and Socrates Sculpture Park. I like to take the pups to Dutch Kills Park because it has a large, closed off hockey rink where they allow animals to run and play along with other neighborhood dogs. Socrates Sculpture Park is my other park alternative. It has an open space for pups to be off leash in the mornings and it has a beautiful view of the East River and the Manhattan skyline. Because I am a recent grad, dog sitting has become my full-time job and I will be home everyday to walk your pup 3-4 times per day as well as allowing them backyard potty breaks in between.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
I have a spacious open living room in which a comfy, fresh, clean dog bed can be provided for their comfort. If, however they prefer some company when they sleep they are more than welcome to sleep in my room! Your pup is really allowed to sleep wherever they want!

Time I'll spend with your dog
Hours! Because I am a recent grad and this is my full-time job, I am home most of the time and I have all the time in the world hanging out with your pup while we exercise, play, and watch TV on the couch.
