Kathleen dropped by for a 2nd visit and she is absolutely wonderful and dependable. She posted lots of photos of her visit, and our dogs just love her.

We've hired Kathleen a couple times- most recently, we went away for a week and had her house sit and care for our greyhound, Marty. Kathleen is always great about communicating with us (sending updates and pictures), so we always know things are ok on the home front. It's really great having someone you can trust with your home and fur baby! We were able to have a relaxing vacation, knowing that everything was in ...

I am currently not accepting new dogs for walks and visits, an opening spot is currently pending, thank you for understanding. I live in California, MD and try not to travel farther than a 15 - 20-mile radius. Thank you for looking at my profile and considering me as your sitter!

Hello! I'm Kathleen and I've been working ...

What Kathleen would like to know about your dog

I ask for their main vet information, emergency vet information, and emergency contacts (family, neighbors, etc.) As well as special needs such as diet, medication, allergies, and things such as how they are on walks, with other dogs, or if they are iffy about certain things like paws being touched.

In addition, I ask for a list of the daily schedule: Feeding times, bed times, medication times, if they go out at certain times, and if/when they go on walks.

Extra information that can be helpful are the commands they know, if they can go on car rides, to dog parks, favourite toys, etc.

I don't have specifically have breed preferences, but I do have favorite breeds! My favourite breeds are German Shepherds (specifically straight backs with a long stock coat) and Golden Retrievers. I'm also very partial to Cavalier Kings Charles Spaniels, Huskies, Samoyeds, Beagles, Dachshunds, and Great Danes.

When Kathleen watches your pet

The dogs I walk can be brought multiple places, all at the wish of the owner. I am willing to walk dogs around my neighborhood, the owner's neighborhood, to the parks, to the beach, even on trails!

I keep dog safety selt belt clips in my car at all times, as well as extra leashes, and harnesses.
