Copper had a great time at Kate's. She sent pictures of him playing with Simba and another dog they were sitting for. She took him on long walks along the reservoir even though the weather wasn't great. They made drop off and pickup very convenient. We look forward to Copper spending more time with them during our vacation next month!

Kate watched our dog Monty for a week while we were on vacation. Monty is an 11 month old pup who is big and full of energy. Kate was great. She sent updates and pictures of Monty. She took him on long walks and even swimming with her dog. Highly recommend!

I travel frequently for business and I'm so thankful for Kate for caring for my dog while I'm away. My dog Jasper feels totally at home with Kate and he loves to slumber party with Kate's dog Simba. He gets lots of attention, exercise, socialization, naps on the couch, and playtime on the grass. Jasper is always happy, healthy, and content when I come pick him up. I think he is already looking forward to ...

RN/ Loving dog mom!

If you’re anything like me, your dog is the light of your life! Pups bring so much happiness into our lives, so I’ve always wanted to do what I can to give back to them however possible. I have an abundance of love in my heart for all creatures, so it just felt natural to open up my home to dogs in need of a little TLC! Taking care of dogs just comes ...

What Kate would like to know about your dog

Some things I like to learn ahead of time:

Would you like to schedule a meet-and-greet before the stay?
What’s your preferred method of communication?
Does your pup have any health issues that need to be tended to? For instance, dietary restrictions, medicine, or behavior triggers?
Do you have a vet nearby that you trust?
Is your dog spayed/neutered?
Does your pup like to stick to a given schedule, like regular walks in the morning and evening?
What does your pup do well around? What does your pup try to avoid?
What’s the best way to spoil your pup?

When Kate watches your pet

There is so much to do in my area! I live in North Cambridge, near Alewife. My back door of my apartment opens up to a beautiful courtyard, and right across the street is a "Bark Park" for residents and their dogs. We live within walking distance of Fresh Pond Reservoir so we spend a lot of time there, and can also walk to Danehy Dog Park. I just love taking pups to new and different parks and environments, so we’ll make sure to get out and explore some new great things! I love trips to the Blue Hills Reservation, so that’s always on the menu. Throughout the day quick walks around my apartment complex and visits to the bark park are a must! One of my favorite hobbies, though, is going to the beach. I grew up at the beach and try to find some sunshine wherever I go.
