Kate was awesome and sent me pictures of my Oakley on his walk. 10/10 would recommend! ?

Kate was great! She sent pictures and checked in. I wish she checked in a little more on the full day she watched her, but I get it. It was Thanksgiving. I loved how she gave my high energy Blue plenty of walks. In fact Blue kept going to the door when we got home. Just a suggestion. I thought maybe we should have met Kate with Blue just so Blue knew it was ok ...

Kate was incredibly flexible and responsive, and kept me updated with pictures. I could tell my dog wasn't just safe, but had a GREAT time and was her usual hyper self. If I ever need to board my dog somewhere, I'll definitely ask Kate again!

Looking to make new furry friends!

I grew up in a household that was lovingly nicknamed "a zoo," and since my recent move to California I've been missing my pups dearly! I recently relocated a few months ago for a job and left behind my human and animal family on the East Coast. Through out my life, I have helped raise dogs of all sizes and breeds - from West Highland Terriers (Hunter and Cassie) to Aussies (Mickey) and my photo ...

What Kate would like to know about your dog

Any dog that stays with me is treated as if they were my own, and I want to make sure their time with me is always safe, happy and healthy! As all dogs are unique with their own personality, their needs will be just as unique! In order for me to provide the best environment and care, I would really love to know a few things about your pet:

1. What is their temperament/general behavior? - I don't have any animals or children of my own, but how are they when out and about on walks or if they spot another animal?
2. Vaccine status
3. Spayed or neutered
4. Special needs involving their diet, allergies, or medical
5. Are they house trained?
6. What kind of feeding/bathroom schedule do they normally adhere to?

The above is a general outline of information that I will refer to frequently, but the more details you can provide, the better! Please feel free to elaborate or add more tips/information about your dog.

*Please note that boarding drop-off time is between 6:30AM and 8:00AM and pick up time is between 6:30PM-8:00PM. Anything beyond the 8:00PM hour is subject to an additional $10 fee per hour.* Having a set drop off/pick up time allows me more organized scheduling for my various services, and caring for your pup! :)

When Kate watches your pet

Any pups that stay with me will get their dose of exercise and playtime! Whether it be casual and easy walks along the beach for my smaller/older guests or a good hike to one of the trails in the area for the more energized breeds I try to have my dog visitors outside in the fresh air as often as possible.
