Kate has been such a great host to Bagel! She always gets so much attention and has a blast when she stays there!

Kate hosted Bagel while we were off getting married and traveling briefly after... and I couldn't have been happier with how Bagel spent her own "vacation"! Kate kept me updated with frequent photos and stories about her activities, and I could tell that she was extremely comfortable there. Kate is a real dog-lover in a way I don't always see in others.

Our dog stayed 10 days with Kate this holiday season. From start to finish, working with Kate was a pleasure and left us feeling so comfortable with leaving. We had never used anyone outside family to sit our dog before, so needless to say we were nervous initially. But after the meet and greet we knew our little guy was in the best possible care. Kate's knowledge of dogs and comfort around them is evident ...

Fun in a safe and loving home

Two Comfy Homes:
My partner and I own a large dog-friendly house in mid-Cambridge. We have a very secure fenced-in back yard/patio, although that space does not substitute for walks. It's a great spot for a quick pee, or a longer nap in the sun though. Our house is filled with dog beds and comfy furniture (if you allow your dog on the furniture). There are many rooms in the house, but the dogs ...

When Kate watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
My house is in mid-Cambridge, near the library (a popular dog walking area). We walk all over Cambridge from the house, and we also drive to Fresh Pond to walk around the Pond. On weekends we go to the Fells or the Blue Hils for longer hikes. If your dog has good recall, we would let him/her go off leash if you wanted.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Wherever s/he likes. There's a king-size human bed and assorted dog beds in the bedroom. If your dog prefers sleeping in his/her crate or in a chair, it's their choice.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I'm home all day and the dogs hang out with me in my study, or in the kitchen. I might go out to the gym and/or grocery shopping, but they are not alone more than a few hours.
