Ms. Kathleen is absolutely awesome! She is very caring and such a dog lover that our 4 pups were thrilled to have her stay the night with them while we went out of town.. We will definitely be re-booking her for future house sitting!

Kathleen was amazing! My dog Willow had a ton of fun staying with her and her dog Cinder. They got along great and played together the whole time. She sent me a bunch of pictures and was in great communication with me the whole time! Her large fenced backyard would be perfect for any dog to run around and play. I will definitely be bringing willow back and would highly recommend her!

What Kathleen would like to know about your dog

I would want to know his temperament; how he interacts with other dogs and people; does he have specific likes? Fears? Needs? Medical concerns? Does he enjoy playing with other dogs? What specifics does the owner want while their dog is in my care? How can I make their dog feel comfortable?
