Kate was the BEST sitter for Marvel during our 2 week destination wedding/honeymoon! I was so worried to leave our pup for so long, it was the longest she's ever been away from everyone she knows. Kate was instantly understanding, accommodating, and had won our little Marvels heart over instantly. She is extremely comfortable with a variety of breeds, and seeing as we have an Olde English Bulldogge, not many people are as well ...

I'm a new first time dog owner of 5 months. I had to go away for a week and found Kate here on Rover to watch my dog, Snoop. I was impressed by her profile and also wanted a sitter who had a dog because Snoop has a bit of separation anxiety and I thought another dog would make her adjust to me being away much easier. We met and Snoop and Clyde instantly fell ...

Kate was a wonderful dog sitter for my pittie mix Mollie. She was easy to communicate with and very responsive. We met offsite from both our apartments for our initial meetings with both our dogs, and once we realized that the two were comfortable around each other, and that Kate and Mollie hit it off, it was an easy decision to leave Mollie with her for a week. I received daily texts and photos, and ...

Experienced Owner, Trainer, Rescuer

All my life I have been drawn to animals, and working with them has been my calling. This passion started in childhood, from my refusal as a toddler to sleep anywhere but with my dog, to the several persuasive essays I penned to my parents explaining why I needed, and how I would care for a pet (example, "Why I need a Turtle" Kate- Age 6). As an adult, this passion grew into rescuing, rehabilitating ...

What Kate would like to know about your dog

General behaviors and mannerisms. What are their rules at their home? Allowed on furniture? Heels on walks? Sits and waits before fed a meal? Are they dog friendly, any dog breeds or sexes they don't respond well to? Any fear aggression? Friendly with males, females, children, strangers, etc? Any phobias or fears? What medications or health concerns does the dog have? All helpful to know so I can provide the dog with the best experience possible.

When Kate watches your pet

We'll take trips to the dog park, if your pup is comfortable in that environment, and walk along the Long Island City promenade through the gardens along the water. We can take a trip out of the city and hike through conservation area trails and maybe find a pond or lake to go swimming, if that's your dog's cup of tea! We will also relax at home with some good toys and nap time. Training is always important! So if you want me to work with your pup on any obedience or tricks, we'll do that too! At night we can watch a good movie after dinner and sleep comfortably until morning, and then have another fun-filled and instructive day together!
