Payton had a wonderful time with Kate, Franklin and Dan. Payton usually has separation anxiety and doesn't eat when I leave him but when he stayed with Kate he felt comfortable and he ate all of his food! Kate is easy to work with and will update you as much as she can! I will continue to have Kate sit for Payton when I go out of town.

Kate was great with Sybie! My dog is a bit of a 'special needs' dog (i.e. not properly socialize, clingy, etc.), and she was extra attentive. I really appreciated the frequent updates and her overall communicativeness. I will definitely be using her again in the future.

Kate took great care of our dog Linda! She was very flexible and easy to work with. She kept us up to date with pictures while we were away, which we really appreciated. Our dog got along just fine with her dog and her cat and Kate made sure our dog had a good accommodation. I definelty recomend her.
