Katie was amazing! This was our (and Harley’s) first time using Rover and we were very happy. Katie sent us plenty of updates and pictures and videos throughout the 4 day weekend, which made it easier for us being so far away. She took him on plenty of walks and kept him well socialized with dogs and other people. Seeing him so happy and relaxed - we knew he was having a good time at ...

Kate was awesome with our dog Charlie. He stayed with her for a few days and afterwards when we got home he seemed like he wanted to go right back again. Usually Charlie is slow to warm up to new people, but right away he was relaxed and happy with Kate.
We needed a sitter very last minute and Kate was accomodating and agreed to watch Charlie the day prior to our departure. She even ...

Flexible Schedule, Near Dog Park

My mother is a veterinarian and I grew up around dogs constantly. I worked as an employee at the animal hospital for several years. Growing up, my family has had several dogs - all labs or lab mixes. I have significant house-sitting experience for dogs of all sizes/breeds and absolutely love dedicating time to dogs. I work full-time at Northeastern however during the winter months I will spend multiple days a week working from home ...

What Katherine would like to know about your dog

I would like to know if a dog has any specific triggers that may cause him/her to act in a different way. It is important to me to know a dog's routine so that should I be taking care of them, they feel as comfortable as possible in their setting. This includes any allergies or medications as well. I love all breeds and I am comfortable with dogs of all sizes! I have experience in watching special needs dogs and I am comfortable administering treatments and providing any extra care.

When Katherine watches your pet

I live right across the street from a park and right near the Charles River, where there are great walking trails. I also live near the Tudor dog park, so if you are comfortable with your dog going there, please let me know! I am someone who loves the outdoors and hiking, so I am happy to do walks of any length.

My roommate is also a certified Rover sitter/dog lover, so your dog will get lots of love from us both!
