Kate was a total blessing for me and our sweet Millie! Her flexibility allowed me to make a last-minute business trip, and her heart for pups (especially seniors) gave me peace of mind while I was away. She and her husband provided frequent updates and pics so I could catch glimpses of Millie’s time away. I could not have imagined a better experience!

Kate provides a loving home for senior dogs. Cloe was well loved and cared for. Great yard for sniffing:)

Kate was able to deal with my dog's storm anxiety and food issues (afraid to eat around other dogs). He loved laying out in their beautiful backyard and playing with their Golden Retriever.

Here's where we'll take our walks

Your dog's sleeping arrangement

All day. I am home with my children.
