Kate was professional and charming. She took excellent care of our senior dog and sent frequent pictures. We will be using her for all of our travels. It’s nice to trust someone with the house and the dog! Highest recommendation!

Kate is wonderful. Our older Lab loves everyone and everything but our newer rescue can be a nervous dog. Not to worry! He saddled up to Kate for chin scratches shortly after we left and was out in the open rather than under the coffee table when we got home. Animals sense good energy in people and Kate definitely has good energy.

Kate and Chris were the best house sitters we’ve had in years. They took such good care of our dogs and our home. They kept in touch every day and went above and beyond, checking our mail and feeding our birds. I would definitely recommend this wonderful couple. They do an amazing job and I can’t wait to book them again!!

Double the fun!

Between the two of us, my husband and I have loved many dogs. We take a personal pride in putting the dog's needs first and making sure to keep in touch with the parents so that they can see their furry friends doing well.
Since we are not yet in a position to have a dog of our own, we get our doggie fix through rover. It's a wonderful thing! We have cared for some ...

What Kate would like to know about your dog

I like to know all I can about a client's dogs; history, likes, dislikes, habits, you name it. From the serious stuff like allergies, medications, and training to the fun stuff, like do they like to watch movies with you? Do they love playing catch or tug of war best? Are they a behind the ear dog or a bellyrub type?

When Kate watches your pet

I like to research the breed if I don't already know their special attributes and then give my full attention to their owners! Just like with children, The parents know them best and I will want to know how they live with their furry kids so that while they're gone they know that the care they give everyday doesn't disappear just because they go on vacation.
Taking photos, sending updates and keeping in touch with the family are obviously included. I will spend as much time as the family wishes and will treat their dog like the wonderful friend they are. Walks depend on preference of the family, whether that be around the neighborhood or at a dog park.
I am willing and able to truly maintain any routine and to make sure the dog feels happy and safe while their family is away. Also I have no problems helping water plants, gather mail/the newspaper or other little things around the house.
