Kathi had our mastiff puppy for a night and she was very well taken care of! I had lots of pictures and updates from Kathi, which I loved! When our girl got home she went straight for her bed in front of the heater and has been camped out there since! We love having a tired puppy when we get home from a getaway. Thank you Kathi for giving us peace of mind while Nalah ...

Kathi was wonderful, loving, and professional. Our Wilbur is the most important member of our family and she took care of him as we would. She also helped on a short notice.

Dog lover/Circus Ringmaster

My family is full of animal lovers! We've adopted and fostered many animals through the years, and currently have an older rescue pug and two cats. I have experience with animals with special needs (allergies, arthritis, diabetes, etc.), so I'm well versed in caring for pets who need special attention or medication.

Recently I've started dabbling in making all-natural healthy dog treats, which Stella the Wonder Pug loves!

What Kathi would like to know about your dog

Daycare drop offs should be between 7:00a.m. and 8 a.m., and pickup should be completed by 6:00 p.m. Boarding is normally billed in 24 hour increments, with some wiggle room for longer stays.

REQUIREMENTS
Most importantly, your dog must be healthy, up to date on all vaccines, and free from parasites including fleas. Additionally, please make sure your dog's nails are trimmed before our visit, otherwise a grooming fee will be incurred.

I keep my ratios low, but it is very important that your dog be well socialized with people and other animals, including cats. I am usually home during the day, however, dogs with severe separation anxiety are difficult for me to care for due to my personal and work obligations. If your dog has severe separation anxiety, but is comfortable in a crate for short periods, I can usually work with you. Your dog's comfort and safety are my first considerations.

Clear and honest communication is tantamount to our working relationship.
