We are Totally comfortable having Kathleen at our home with all the animals. She was still smiling and loved by all 5 critters when we returned. We will be booking her services again. Her messages while we were away made us smile!

Kathleen has been caring for our dog for over a year with weekly walks and overnight care while we’re away. We couldn’t be more happy with her! She always goes the extra mile (literally and figuratively) - there have been plenty of days that she’s taken Marley for several hour hikes while we’re at work, even though we only have an agreement for a half hour. My dog is 10 and I ...

I’m so glad to have found Kathleen!!
I’m weary of leaving my dog, Maya, with people, but after several minutes of talking with Kathleen I felt completely at ease. She’s incredibly nice, SOO knowledgeable about animals and I’ve never seen Maya warm up to someone so quickly! Also the pics of their walk made me so happy.
Not only have I found someone I trust, but I feel like Maya has ...

When Kathleen watches your pet

I love taking dogs into the woods for a nice long hike. Hikes range from 30 minutes to 4 hours. I also love a leashed walk around the neighborhood! We will walk or hike in my area or yours. If you have any recommendations, please provide - I'd like your dog to be comfortable wherever he or she is exercising. I have really great spots. Everything from waterfall hikes, to going up a whole mountain. A little bit of everything! If your dog is not so adventurous, we can stick around happily at home.
