Kate is great with our dogs. She sends us plenty of pictures and how they are doing. She has sat with our dogs several times. I would recommend using her.
Kate took such good care of our dogs while we were on vacation this past week. She house/dog sat for us and my dogs clearly both loved her. Kate was able to help us out last minute which was wonderful. She provided frequent updates and I didn't have to worry at all. Kate seems very responsible and trustworthy and we will definitely use her again!
Kate sent pictures of the dogs and it looks like they had a lot of fun. I was out of country with minimal chances to get in touch, but Kate was quick to respond when I did. The house was as I left it and she even washed the sheets. I would recommend Kate for future dogsitting.
Your pet's dream staycation
My name is Kate! I've been pet sitting for about 10 years, mostly for family friends that have turned into repeat clients (I've been watching one pup for the better part of 7 years now!). I worked at a dog daycare/boarding facility, have volunteered at my local shelter, and I grew up with cats. I take pet-sitting very seriously, and strive to provide the happiest, least stressful environment for your dog while I'm with ...
What Kate would like to know about your dog
I don't have any breed preferences, and will absolutely watch anything from a teacup yorkie to a big blocky pitbull to a lazy greyhound to an energetic collie. Please provide me with basic information about your pup's personality, and any quirks I may need to know about. Below is a list of questions I typically ask.
+Does your dog take any medication? If so, please leave me written instructions.
+Where does your dog sleep? Are they allowed to sleep in the bed with me?
+Is your dog crate trained? Where does your dog stay when I leave the house?
+What is your dog's eating schedule?
+Is your dog able to sleep through the night? How often will I need to take them out to potty?
+Is your dog leash reactive, aggressive to other dogs, have a high prey drive, aggressive toward men, women or children?
It's an extensive list, but it helps me provide the best care for your dog.
