Very disappointed. This was our first time using rover and we booked based on reviews. It was a horrible experience. Instructions were not followed. We specifically asked for the dogs to be fed at 5pm and she did not feed them until after 8 because she said her errands ran long. Our dogs were obviously not her priority this weekend. My husband was about ready to leave his birthday trip to come back because he ...

Our normal pet sitter was out of the Country so we tried Katherine based on her reviews. We had a few issues and won’t use her again unfortunately.

1) A few days before our trip she told us she forgot about something Monday morning and couldn’t be at our home with the dogs when requested. She told us we could cancel if needed but we were so close to leaving we couldn’t find anyone else. ...

About Katherine

  • Verified Background Check

Dogs love me! Owners adore me! :-)

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

I am home most of the day. My Overnight Stay fee is for a full 24 hours staying at your home.

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 ...

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.
