I would recommend Katherine without hesitation. She clearly loves dogs, and all animals, and gives them the care they deserve. She’s always done well with our neurotic, older Shepherd mix, especially with the somewhat special needs for our doggo. Katherine also leaves the house in the condition I would expect. 12/10 would hire again

Katharine was a great pet/house sitter for our girls! She was very comfortable with my big, crazy dogs and asked a lot of good questions when we met. She sent frequent pictures and notes about them, which I really appreciated. The house was super clean when we got home, even the sheets were washed and put back on the guest bed! I will definitely call her again.

Katy was wonderful. She took great care of my home and my doggies. A few things that I valued most about her .... she sent me tons of pictures and communicated with me daily. She was completely honest, even remarking how my doggies took time to warm up to her. Katy took in my mail, cared for my plants and our friends pet frogs who are staying with us. I couldn't have been happier or felt ...

Honest and Reliable Pet Sitter

Hello! My name is Katie and I have over a decade of pet sitting experience. I believe that keeping your dogs at home can really make the difference in calming those nerves, for both you and them. I am happy to help ease their stress by keeping the same routines, providing extra cuddles, and focusing my energy on them. Regarding their diet, I have no problem with kibble, wet, raw, or freshly cooked.

What Katharine would like to know about your dog

I have no breed preferences.

These are a few things I'd like to discuss during our meet & greet:
Does your dog have any health issues that I need to be aware of? i.e allergies, dietary restrictions, regular or emergency medicine, separation anxiety or behavior triggers
Does your dog have a exercise schedule they enjoy?
How does your dog prefer to sleep at night?
Does your dog have a favorite spot to starch or favorite toy?
How does your dog handle a leash?
Is your dog an "escape artist?"
Have you worked with a pet sitter before? Anything you enjoyed or disliked?
Do you have a vet nearby that you trust?
Are there any neighbors you should inform of my stay so they will not worry about a new person in your home?

When Katharine watches your pet

I love taking walks and will love to take your dog along with me. Also car rides can be a lot of fun if the weather is right. I often go hiking on the weekend so if your dog can handle 5+ miles, I'd love to take them exploring.

I love off the leash parks, however, even if your dog is trained for them, I prefer to wait until after multiple stays.
