If I could give 10 stars to Kate I would do it. She took such good care of Ruby and made sure that Ruby was a happy little girl all the while I was gone and I was able to enjoy the wedding with my grandson knowing that my little Ruby was with somebody who cared about her.

Kate sent me photographs of Ruby each day and even though I missed my little dog I ...

Super responsive, flexibile, and friendly. Anzuelo had a great time with Kate. We'd recommend her to anyone needing a dog sitter in Huntington Beach.

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 with interacting with kids or other animals? How do they respond when out and about on walks and they spot a child or another dog?
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 8:30AM and pick up time is between 6:30PM-8:00PM. Any pickup or drop offs outside of these windows is subject to an additional $10 fee. Pick-ups after 8:00PM is also subject to an additional $10 fee (this will be discussed further at booking.) Having a set drop off/pick up time allows me more organized scheduling for my various services, and caring for your pup! Thank you for understanding! :)

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.
