As always, Kate took fabulous care of both dogs and the house while we were out of town. It’s amazing how much more I am able to enjoy our time away knowing that the dogs are in good care. I don’t know what we would have done this summer without Kate! Thank you!!

Hank and Heidi had another fabulous time with Kate last week. She takes wonderful care of my dogs and the house. I was without phone service most of the weekend (which typically makes me nervous) but with Kate I knew I had nothing to worry about and that my fur kids were in great hands!

This review is long overdue, but Kate was amazing while I was out of the country on a work trip. I was completely unavailable by phone but Kate kept in touch and sent pictures to my sister, as well as to me so I had lots of pictures to welcome me home. Turns out, one of my pups is a bit of digger and got under the fence (first time ever) but Kate was such ...

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.
