Kate is the best! This was our second time boarding our dog with her and he has the best time with her and her 2 pups :) she gives great updates and took such good care of Percy. Thank you so much Kate!

Our dog Zuri had a great time with Kate! She often gets “depressed” when we leave her but seemed to be having a great time. We got lots of photos, and Zuri came home as fit and happy as ever!

Kate took care of my dog like he was her own while I was away! It gave me such peace of mind to know she was with him while I was out of town for a whole week. I received daily photo updates about my dog’s adventures, which I really appreciated. Plus Kate is super responsive and flexible. I couldn’t recommend her more highly!

Doggie snuggles welcome!!

I am a 35 year old dog lover/high school teacher who will be happy to welcome your pup into my home :) I have two small, quiet dogs of my own and have many veterinarian friends, so your animal will be well-cared for and safe :)

I live in a very safe Marina neighborhood, only a short walk from Chrissy Field :)

What Kate would like to know about your dog

I need to know about food allergies, leash behavior, and barking habits. Since I make my own treats, I don't want to upset any tummies. Since I will be walking more than one pup, I need to know if your baby is a puller. Since I live in an apartment building, I need to know if your fur baby is loud :)

When Kate watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I will walk your pups all over the city - but will mainly walk around the Marina Green and Cow Hollow areas.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Your pups will sleep in bed with me and my dog unless otherwise specified!

Time I'll spend with your dog
As much time as possible! I teach during the day, so I usually leave around 8am and get back around 3/3:30pm :)
