Kate is a life saver! My initial dog sitter wasn’t working out, and she came through for me at the very last minute! I couldn’t recommend her more highly.

Kate has been excellent with our tiny chihuahuas! She takes extra special care with them, being less than 3.5lbs has its challenges. Kate has always been watching our pups for a few weeks now and is always on time and works well with our ever changing schedule. I would recommend her to anyone!

Kate was nice and my dogs seemed to like her. Kaye showed up for first drop in visit but didnt show up for the second drop in visit and was unresponsive when contacted through messages. Unreliable!

Walks, fetch, and belly rubs :)

*Available on New Years Eve as well as New Years Day!*

A persons pet is part of their family. I grew up with dogs, have fostered dogs and also have years of experience pet sitting from multiple daily visits to home stays to boarding. I learn as much as I can about the dog before first watching them. Every dog is different and it is important to me to know not only medical needs but ...

What Kate would like to know about your dog

I would like to meet the owner and their pet before watching them. I would ask for a rundown of the dog's daily schedule as well as what the owner would like from me. I would ask about age, health, their temperament, any anxieties they might have, how well trained they are, how they interact with other dogs as well as people. In case of emergency I would ask for their vet's number. Any and all details the owner would like to give are always appreciated. I'm happy to watch most any breed, however I would prefer dogs weighing 60lbs or under.

When Kate watches your pet

Lots of walks, I love Audubon, Crescent Park and pretty shaded side streets. Also time outside playing fetch and tug of war, belly rubs and cuddles. The level of activity/what we do will be dictated by what the owner would like, physical abilities of the dog as well as their preferences and whatever makes their tail wag the most :)
