Kat was amazing!!!! We had too fInd a new setter at the last minute. Being new to the area and not knowing anyone was nerve wracking enough but having to find a new setter that quick was even worse...kat made me feel very relaxed about leaving my fur babies and my house with a total stranger. She sent pictures every day and it was a relief to see how happy they were while we ...

Kat was awesome with both dogs. They were so comfortable with her so we were comfortable with leaving them. She’s great with dogs. Definitely will have her stay with the dogs when we need someone again.

Thanks again for such a positive experience! Ava, my Great Pyrenees, adores Kat and always has an excellent time with her. I'll definitely book her again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to others.

Dog care with the whole dog in mind

I received a certification in the Fundamentals of Clicker training and positive reinforcement in a Karen Pryor Academy class. I have experience training puppies to behave correctly with humans and dogs. From the age of 8 to adulthood, I ran my own house sitting business in cities in eastern Kansas, including Lawrence, and Overland Park, KS. I have worked in Veterinary Clinics, Humane Societies and dog boarding facilities. Through experience and classes I know how ...

What Kat would like to know about your dog

I would like to know as much as you feel comfortable sharing with me. I want to give excellent service to you and your dog.
These are some of the questions I usually ask when dog sitting for new clients:
1. What is the routine that you have with your dog on a daily basis?
EX: When they get up, when they go outside, when they eat, etc)
2, Does your dog have any health issues that affect their overall behavior? (arthritis, hip dysplasia, seizures, separation anxiety, etc )
3. Are they are afraid of anything?
(fireworks, storms, cars),
4. What are the treats and toys that they enjoy the most?
5. Are they crate trained?
6. Is your dog housebroken?
7. Do they have nasty habits?
(Ex: getting into the trash, eating poop, chasing the cat, eating rodents, drinking from the toilet, escape artist, grumpiness or aggressive behavior towards other dogs or cats, etc)
8. How old is your dog?
9. Is there anything that you are training your dog to do?

10. I would also ask that if I am providing services for your dog or dogs, that in case of an emergency, I have your contact information and also who your vet is.

I want to assure that you know that I would take care your dog like I would take care of my own dogs.

I don't have breed preferences.

When Kat watches your pet

I would first find out what your dog loves to do with you and your family and then do those things. Such as: play fetch, tug of war, play enrichment games, go to dog park, take them on car rides, go on fieldtrips or go on long walks. I am here for you, and for your dog. Every dog is different and have their own unique personality. I would do the things that you like to do with them and/or what they enjoy most. Once, your dog and I "become friends" I might start to try to introduce them to similar but different games or activities based on the knowledge that I have gained. My main goal of working with dogs, is to treat them with respect by exercising their mind and their body. Through enrichment games, food puzzles and some basic dog training, I will help your dog become behaviorally better. The best feeling is when you return home from your work day and discover that your dog is calm but happy to see you!
Here are some examples of what I like to do with my dogs:
I really like taking my dog, Skye to the Lawrence Mutt Run. She enjoys playing with other dogs. For a dog, Skye is one social butterfly and finds friends everywhere. Skye has a lot of physical energy and she loves to run and frolic. At the Mutt Run there are many trails to hike with her and when the swimming area is open she loves to swim and retrieve things from the water. Skye also enjoys playing tug of war, playing fetch, chewing, and enrichment activities I do with her. Including, hide and seek (with food), food puzzle games, gate control, and she loves positive reinforcement clicker training.
Where Jakob is a complete companion animal, wants to be with me all the time. He most enjoys going on walks, car rides, and playing with other small dogs. He indulges occasionally in chasing squirrels in the backyard and lives to be cuddled and loved on. Like Skye, Westly is a very active dog and loves to play, run, chase, and herd. There are not a whole lot of things that he doesn’t enjoy.
