Katherine was amazing! My buddy was well taken care of while I was away and I received updates including pictures during her stay. Colton even got a new toy out of it! I highly recommend Katherine if you want peace of mind while traveling.

Dogs love me! Owners adore me! :-)

Happy dog. Happy owner! That's my goal.

I love all breeds and have experience with many. I probably prefer the average dog best, but I may be willing to work with you depending upon your specific needs and dog's temperament. Most dogs behave very well for me--just adorable little nuggets of joy, so I'm happy to propose a meet and greet and we'll see if I can go Dog Whisperer on your Pup too! :-)

What Katherine would like to know about your dog

-General temperament and activity level
-What makes him her really sad or really happy
-Typical schedule
-If they have a tendency to snap at other dogs, children, strangers, or etc. and if so when this typically occurs, so that we can avoid any drama. As a rule, I don’t walk on same side of road as other dogs, because I haven’t spent enough time with the animals most of the time to know how they will react and if they know the dog, if it’s one they like. Uneventful but fun and snuggly and healthy dog experiences are top priority for me.
-Anything else that you think I should know

When Katherine watches your pet

I love nature walks!! If your dog likes to play fetch, game on! If you'd like, we could even head to a dog park!! I love to give your pup lots of cuddles and make sure they get plenty of exercise, love, and attention.

I only allow dogs on the furniture or bed if you, the owner, allows it. I easily adapt to your specific house rules and try to keep the dog(s) as comfortable, stress-free, healthy, and happy while their family is away. I know some dogs get separation anxiety, so I try to console them and make sure we have extra fun to make up for them missing their family. If your dog is bored, I try to exercise them, pet them, or give them a kong. If they’re sleepy, I let them sleep or cuddle up next to me for a nap. I like to keep feeding routines on time with when they’re used to it. I have my own treats but we should discuss what’s okay to give them if they don’t have any treats.
