Our Bentley is an anxious, not trusting of strangers very very big guy, from day ONE Katharina spoke his language and helped him feel calm and under control and assured/positive guidance. He turned into a giant puppy playing with her dog...really brought out his fun and happy side. Plenty of pictures and tips and updates. If your dog requires someone with more experience and training than "loving dogs" then you've found your dog ...

Katharina was very pleasant and accommodating. She sent many pictures during my boy Sammy's stay and was very kind as to replace Sammy's treats that were forgotten and left at her place. Would highly recommend!

Katharina is absolutely wonderful. She definitely had a handful with our high-anxiety Corgi. This is the second time she’s watched our dog and I am so grateful that she is patient and understanding with him. I never hesitate to leave Ranger with her. Thanks again!

Your dog will be happy at my place

I have always had a passion and an intuition for dogs and I have helped my friends with their dog 'problems' all my life. A few years ago I took on the study of dog psychology at a college in Switzerland and now I am a certified dog behaviorist. I have a great ease around dogs of all sizes and character. I would love to take care of your dog in my house and my ...

What Katharina would like to know about your dog

I welcome all dogs of all sizes and character and as a certified dog behaviorist, I make sure they all get along and nobody gets bullied. We have a peaceful playful, respectful and loving atmosphere here.
Male dogs with a habit of peeing/marking inside the house will not be accepted!
I pay close attention to all dogs in my care, I can read their body language and can sense when they are not comfortable or when I need to interfere in the 'pack' long before anything ever happens.

When Katharina watches your pet

I take my time and make sure that the dog is as comfortable as possible. It is often not easy for a dog to see the owner leave. Some need to be left alone and want a safe space to retreat, some can be cheered up with a good chewy treat, some need to play ball, others want to go for a walk or just need a cuddle. Every dog is different and I try to give every dog what they need. Relying on my intuition and my life long experience and on my studies as a dog behaviorist. I also pay very close attention to the interaction between the dogs. In my house no dog gets bullied. The atmosphere here is safe and fun
