Kathleen and her family are wonderful. My Rosie is definitely a "dog's dog." She loves to play and this was the perfect environment for her. I picked her up around 11AM and she was already pooped. I highly recommend this family!

Kathy was such a great sitter for my two dogs while I was out of the country. She was very responsive and made me feel totally comfortable about leaving them while I was far away! Her two sons were great with the dogs as well, and they came home happy and tired! I would definitely leave my boys with Kathy again.

Basyl had a wonderful stay with Kathy and her wonderful family. We couldn't be happier and will definitely be calling her again next time we need help watching Basyl. Kathy was so flexible, responsive, and send tons of great photos. I'm not sure Basyl wanted to come home after such a fun weekend. Thank you SO much!!!

  • Verified Background Check

Let us love on your dog!

We are experienced dog owners (and have served as a dog foster family and adoption placement check volunteers). Our beloved dog passed away recently at age 16, and we would love the opportunity to watch YOUR dog and shower him/her with lots of love and attention while you are away. We live in a single family home in an area with lots of great places for walks and hikes. Dogs must be good with ...

What Kathleen would like to know about your dog

Before sitting for a dog, I like to know if he/she has any special needs and if he/she is comfortable in a home with children (who are experienced with dogs). We have been very fortunate to have Rover clients who are very honest about their dogs (does your pooch bolt at the door? Get scared during storms? Steal food?). Telling us about your dog helps us to keep him/her safe and happy.

When Kathleen watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
We will take your dog on walks around our beautiful, dog-friendly suburban neighborhood. There are five parks in easy walking distance from our home. With more active dogs, we love to hike!

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Where your dog will sleep is entirely up to you. Our normal arrangement is to have guest dogs sleep in bedrooms with the humans. If your particular pooch prefers a crate or another location, we can accommodate that.

Time I'll spend with your dog
Your dog would be part of our family during his/her stay, joining us on our family activities. There will be regular walks and exercise.
