We were very appreciative that Kathleen took Naomi for the day on Christmas and that she was flexible with drop off and pickup times. Naomi came home very tired from what seemed to be a fun and busy day for our puppy.

Kathleen was great with my puppy! She instantly knew my puppy’s needs and planned activities to help her learn and develop during daycare

Kathleen was great! She was flexible when we were running late and took great care of our high energy Aussie. She came back tired and happy!

Veterinary Technician

I’m just so doggone crazy about dogs! Since a very young age, I’ve been a caretaker for our furry friends––fostering dogs since the second grade. I’m an RVT with 8 years of experience in clinics and emergency care as well as an adoption coordinator at a rescue shelter. I’ve been a board member for rescues for close to 6 years, and ran a UC club that focused on volunteering at rescues. All in all, I’ve ...

What Kathleen would like to know about your dog

Daniel and I live in a duplex with great neighbors and have a small backyard with a patio. We are located in Woodland but I offer free pick up and drop off between Woodland and Davis. The area is very nice and very pet friendly. We also live just 5 minutes from a large fenced park, so I love taking the dogs there so they can run around and get their hearts pumping. Again, I will be home all day with the animals, so they will never be want of company or cuddles.

When Kathleen watches your pet

As someone who’s been a dog caretaker for these many years, I know exactly what to ask to ensure your pup’s health, safety, and happiness. The greatest pleasure I get from this line of work is when you come back and see your happy pet––and it feels like you’ve left your beloved pup with a longtime friend. I want to take the anxiety and stress out of this entire process. Meet and greets are a fantastic way to alleviate a lot of the worry since we can get acquainted and you can see our home is set up. I’ll have a list of questions asking about your dog’s diet, exercise/walk schedule, illnesses/medications, preferred areas to be petted, triggers, etc. I also believe taking care of the human owner is the other half of this job, so I will happily send regular updates via text, pictures, or videos, so you don’t ever miss your pup or a really adorable moment. Communication is the key factor to a wonderful and lasting working relationship, so please feel free to contact me anytime, day or night!
