Kathleen is a dream come true. She is reliable and truly loves my dog! She sends me pictures and is always on time. My dog won’t walk for many, but with Kathleen there’s never a problem. I trust her to stay here when we go away - that’s BIG. I’m so lucky to have found her

Kathleen is amazing. She really is an animal lover and our two dogs love her. Kathleen has a great personality, is very gracious and has a great sense of humor. Our dogs and KAthleen hit it off immediately and she spends lots of time paying attention to them which they love. She is a natural and will continue to have her stay with our boys whenevr she is available. Thanks Kathleen. You're the best.

Kathleen has a real gift with animals. Her love for all living things is clear when you see her interact with your pet. She is reliable and trustworthy. When Kathleen is taking care of my dog I don't have to worry about being away, I know my dog is being well cared for and loved. Kathleen is my first choice for pet care every time!

When Kathleen watches your pet

I live within walking distance of several entrances to the Wissahickon and already hike there several days a week. I would be thrilled to bring your dog with me for leashed walks through the Wissahickon trails or to walk your dog around your neighborhood! I also live a quick drive from Pastorius Park, a beautiful open park great for playing ball or frisbee. I love all dogs as if they were my own and will happily play tug of war, tag, and fetch indoors or in your yard!
