Katharine has been taking my dog on daily walks for 7 months. She is the upmost professional, has never missed a day or showed up late. When I forgot to leave the leash, she had a back up. She lets me know if my dog seems "off", etc. I trust her completely with my dog and highly recommend her.

Seeking clients 8am-5pm! Arf !

Hello everyone!!! Barks -N- Boneses is me, Katharine (or Kate). I am perfectly located in the Madison/Hollywood are of north east Portland! (near Normandale and Rose City Park) . I am a full time dog walker and often available on short notice, so don't hesitate to ask. If your pet stays or walks with me they will definitely get lots of exercise, attention and care. I absolutely love dogs and they love me. Thank you ...

What Katharine would like to know about your dog

I love to do a meet and greet visit with pets before they are in my care, so we can get to know one another for a few minutes while their owners are there. This makes the pups more comfortable with me!

We can walk along the ridge at Rose City park or the nature trail that runs along the Rose City golf course. Normandale Park is a five minute walk away too! It has two off leash areas: one for the big dogs and one for the little guys. At home, we listen to music or watch TV. I often work at my computer with a dog in my lap or at my feet. I often take hiking trips with dogs in my care if their owners allow it. My favorite close-to-PDX destinations are Forest Park, Thousand Acre Dog Park, and Kelley Point.
