Kate is EXCELLENT!!! She is always available when I need her and provides great feedback and pictures of my "fur kids" while I am gone. I highly recommend her and will keep using her as my go-to pet sitter.

Kate is fantastic. My dog is really neurotic and she took the time to get to know him, make him feel comfortable, and work with his quirks. She sent me photo updates of their stay and snuggled with him on the couch (which he loves). He doesn't let many people into his circle of trust, but she is one of them and we are grateful!

Kate did a wonderful job of dropping in and caring for our puppy Louie. She was consistent with the timing we requested, communicated promptly, and always provided great photos and notes on how he was doing. We definitely would have her care for Louie again.

Dog & cat lover, rescue experienced

Experienced with puppies and aged dogs through years of dog ownership, pet sitting, walking and fostering for shelters and rescues. I am also great with drop-ins and house sitting for cats and multi-pet households. You can feel confident in the care I provide, because I treat every dog as if it were my own fur-baby. I have helped dogs and cats with special medical needs and worked with dogs that had behavioral issues. I also ...

What Kate would like to know about your dog

I would like to know about potty training and preferences, how they interact with other dogs, and if they have any quirky behaviors. For dog walks and dropins, I usually walk within a requested window of time so let me know your range or if you need a very specific time (for instance, 11am-2pm or please come at 9am sharp). I cannot always accommodate exact times, especially between 10am-3pm.

Please note that I will have up to 4 dogs in the home at one time, and while I can separate them into different rooms and areas as needed, I cannot take dogs that are food/toy possessive aggressive. Your dog doesn't have to play with others, but she should be comfortable around most other dogs.

Please note, I prefer to bring my dog over at night when I house sit but if you are close I can leave her home; also I will be away for stretches of time throughout the day. If you have special needs I can work with you for additional services and custom pricing. I don't have any breed restrictions for any services.

When Kate watches your pet

I will take your dog on strolls around the neighborhood and, if you desire, to the dog park. I love playing catch and tug with all the fur babies, and giving lots of pets and scratches until the wiggle-buts feel loved and content. If your dog likes to play with others, my fiesty pup Penne will wrestle, play chase or share a toy. She will also love to take long naps with your pup, and if your pup isn't so social she doesn't mind staying separated.
