Spayed and Neutered Dogs
No Females in Heat
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.
As always, Kat did a wonderful job. She's conscientious about caring for animals and easy to work with. My Great Pyrenees adores her.
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.

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.
