Kate was a fantastic dog sitter. She offered to drive over to the Lakeside area from Sandusky, the week before our wedding to meet with Willow and get a feel for the place. She sent many pictures and updates throughout the night and left a thorough review sheet of the night before she left. She was able to handle a small incident with one of the small dogs and kept all three dogs happy and ...

Kate greeted us with warmth. She put the other dogs in the yard so Barley wasn't overwhelmed upon arrival. She sent numerous updates throughout the day with pictures. Barley very much enjoyed his stay and we would use again in a heartbeat!

We decided at the last minute to go to Cedar Point and Kate was great at accommodating our dogs! Oswald and Rosita loved their time with her and her dogs. Kate is very warm and you can see her passion for animals, I felt great about leaving my guys in her care! She sent a lot of photos and updates through out the day. We would definitely use her again if we return to the ...

About Kate's Home

When Kate watches your pet

We live very close to the lake and downtown Sandusky. A walk to the water and area parks is just a short walk from my house. I like to take dogs for at least one walk while they stay with me, as I walk my 2 dogs almost daily. Our walks are around my neighborhood, downtown Sandusky & to the area parks when the weather is nice. I also have a small fenced in back yard where we just added a “Doggy Corner” that has a doggy pool and dog house! My house has tons of doggy toys & treats, as well as one large kennel with a comfy dog bed and one small kennel just off the living room in my home office that are always kept open for pups who want their own space or need a little snooze! I have 2 large dog crate and 1 small dog crate IF needed - you will not need to provide one unless you prefer. Dogs are not crated while they stay at my house unless the owner requests to do so or if the dog's "safe place" is their crate. I know my own dogs like to nap in theirs all the time! I have a doggy gate between my kitchen and living room for separation if needed.
