We booked Kate again for a couple nights and couldn’t have been happier. She’s responsible, communicates promptly and sends photos. She always leaves our apt clean and we knew our dogs were in good hands. I definitely recommend booking Kate!

Kate was amazing with my dog Saco! Loved all her communication with photo updates while I was away. I came home to a very happy, and well cared for pooch!

Kate was a fantastic dog sitter, we were so happy with her! It was easy to setup a meet-and-greet and communicate with Kate through Rover messaging. After her stay, we came home to a clean apartment and happy huskies. She sent us photos each day and checked in. She is responsible, has great attention to detail, replies to messages promptly and made us feel at ease with our two dogs while we were away. We ...

Dream Job: Hanging Out w/ Your Dog

Hello! I'm Kate, a lifetime animal lover and pet owner (both dogs + cats) with experience taking care of both my own and others' pets. I'm a freelance writer (and semi-recent college grad) and I would love to keep your pets company while you're out of town!

I'm comfortable with any special dietary requirements/restrictions, administering medications, meeting your dog's exercise needs, and providing light grooming/bathing. I love to hang with dogs of all sizes ...

What Kate would like to know about your dog

I love all dogs! Big, small, old, young. They're all equally awesome to me. I also play well with cats and know my way around a litter box.

Can provide daily exercise

When Kate watches your pet

You can trust me to follow your dog's usual routines and training to keep them in the groove of things while you're gone. We'll also have a little extra fun—be it extended morning walks there usually isn't enough time for, trips to the dog park, or something else based on your dog's personality—to keep your pet busy and entertained. Think of me like the "cool aunt," but with dogs, and the kind that always gets your permission first. When we are out and about, I'll make sure your dog stays cool and hydrated as temperatures rise in the city this summer, taking extra care with breeds that are most prone to overheating and older dogs. And of course, I'll be sure to keep you updated with plenty of pics of your pet(s) having fun!

As I noted in my bio, my schedule as a freelance writer will allow me to adapt to any and all needs of your pet. While I may be in and out for meetings, your dog won't need to stay home alone for the typical long hours of a workday, something that could be especially advantageous for pups that suffer from separation anxiety when they know their family is gone.
