Kat is a very kind and caring person. She is a lover of all animals, and I think the animals know that. I've seen her quickly become best friends with even the most cantankerous dogs, cats, horses, and even goats. As an animal owner, my fur babies are incredibly important to me. I want only the best people, with the kindest heart to take care of them, and love them as I do. Kat is ...

Kat has an amazing heart and soul. It's obvious that she loves people and animals, and they love her back. She is wonderful with my dog Tess. Tess gets so excited to see Kat because she knows she will get some lovin and play time. We adore her. I'm positive you will too!

Caring playful dog lover

I have been a dog owner and lover for 11 years of two Alaskan Shepherds. I've grown up surrounded by animals, from cats, chickens, goats and horses to tropical fish, amphibians and snakes. I have cared for and assisted in training a variety of animals. I am energetic and affectionate, but also patient and capable of reinforcing positive behavior to affirm training.

When Kat watches your pet

I enjoy trail walking around areas like Seahurst and Lincoln Park to avoid streets/cars, keep their paws on softer ground, and give ample sniffing stimuli! I am an avid tug-of-war player (though if you're training a no-tug dog, that's great too!)

Depending on your dogs level of training and interest, I've worked with dogs doing agility-like activities (hoop jumping, log walking), training over-land and snow sled, as well as hide-and-go-seek in contained areas. I'm also an avid hiker and backpacker and used to love taking my Alaskan Shepherd on my trips (she's developed hip dysplasia in her age and can no longer hike.)
