Katherine is the best. I have a siberian husky. She is very hard. Incredibly strong and stubborn. She loves Katherine and Katherine is strong enough to handle her and so good with managing my dog's temperament. If she can handle my dog, she can handle any dog!

So awesome. Her communication was fast and thorough and she’s able to accommodate my last minute changes.

What Katherine would like to know about your dog

Can provide daily exercise

I love taking dogs to the park, if they're able, and to the lake if they live nearby. With more energetic breeds, I like to switch between running and walking if there isn't a place nearby, or behavior dictates, that they can't be off leash. I also try to send a picture or two of our time together to their human, if they don't mind being photographed.
