Kathleen is awesome! Very responsible, reliable and knowledgeable about dogs. I highly recommend her as a dog walker and/or dog sitter! I would definitely ask for her help with Bruce again...

Kathleen did a fine job with our dog. She was glad to be home in her own space rather than at a kennel. Kathleen stayed at our home and left everything in a neat and tidy manner. we will book her again!

I've known Kath for over a decade and they've been a lover of animals for as long I can remember. They have a variety of experience with critters as small as rats, to horses, and everything in between. Dogs big and small are no problem, and Kath is very aware of how to read, and care for each individual animal's needs. They have experience working in professional doggy daycare and know how to care for ...

Respect and Love of Canines!

I am currently booked for these dates:

While I'm new to the dog care scene, I do have kennel experience. As of now, I have worked with two kennels, and I am an on-call employee for one of them. I believe in respecting the dog and understanding dog language (i.e. whale eyes, clacking, lip licking.)

I have the experience to handle a wide range of dogs, including senior pets, anxious dogs, and dog aggressive ...

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 breed of dog are German Shepherds (specifically straight backs with a long stock coat). I'm also very partial to Golden Retrievers, Cavalier Kings Charles Spaniels, Huskies, Samoyeds, Beagles, and Great Danes.
