I have known Katy for years. She has a real love and passion for animals, particularly dogs. She has helped me on several occasions taking care of my less than a year old golden doodle. She sent me video or pictures of her which was just more reassurance my pup was having a grand time. Love the way Katy treats her as her own when she is taking care of her. She is a wonderful ...

Katherine, it's very responsible, kind very trustworthy which all three are very much required when enlisting someone into your home
All of my animals loved her, she not only gives them excellent care and follows my instructions for them to the letter she spends quality time with each one of them. So much so that when I returned home my dogs did not act like I was gone at all they were totally happy and ...

A lover of all things nature, especially animals! Katy not only has 3 dogs and 5 cats of her own whom she spoils with so much love, but she also has experience volunteering at Richmond Animal League on Dog Crew, and is a very sought after pet sitter. I know her professionally and personally, so I can vouch for her kind heart and dedication in everything she does. She genuinely enjoys working with animals and ...

I’ll love your pet like it’s mine!

I have life experience with cats and dogs! I grew up with cats and all of my childhood friends had dogs. I volunteer at Richmond Animal League. I have 4 dogs, 4 cats and a mouse of my own! My pets are my children and I would treat any pet as such! They are the loves of my life, my passion! I’m very flexible with my schedule as I work from home! I am ...

What Katherine would like to know about your dog

I don’t have breed preferences, I love them all! I usually like to meet a pet for the first time with the owner present so they feel more comfortable with me. Of course I would like to know if the pet has any aggression or anxiety or medical issues so I can deal with that appropriately. When bringing a new pet to my house I make sure that a proper introduction is done before deciding whether or not your animal will feel comfortable at my house with my other animals. Each of our pets safety is important to me.
I do have cats, but never fear, they have their own separate space away from the dogs so that is never an issue!

When Katherine watches your pet

I usually take the dogs for walks where ever they live, but am not opposed to taking them elsewhere. Where ever the owner prefers! After the walk we play inside/outside for a while before I have to leave to they can release some energy!
If a dog is brought to my house, I have a big fenced in yard that they can run wild in for as long as they like. I have 4 dogs of my own that love having new play buddies, so they usually get to burn any energy or anxiety they may have!
