Kate was my neighbor in Maryland for 10 years. From the young age of 16, she has been my go-to girl to take care of my precious pets. I am a 60 year old widow so I go visit my family often.

When Kate watches your pet

I live right on lakeview and a short 500 foot walk to North Pond! I also have relatives in the suburbs (Lake Forest) where there are lots of dog parks to go and play at!

I would also love to take your dog to the doggy beach! Its close to my place and should your dog love water, I will be happy to treat them to it!
