I couldn't have asked for a better sitter for my wild babies. Kathleen was there for us at a last minute request and we will definitely be using her services again! She communicated with us and love the pictures. Thank you, thank you. See you soon.

We will absolutely be using Kathleen to watch our dogs in the future. We recently relocated to the Lexington Park area and were a little nervous about leaving our dogs behind while we travelled to Florida for a few days. We found Kathleen through Rover and as soon as she came over to meet the dogs, our worries disappeared. Our two Golden’s instantly loved her and our usually shy rescue went right up to ...

Kathleen is wonderful. She drops-in multiple times a week to look after our 2 rambunctious pit puppies and stubborn 6 year old pug. She always sends a message about the visit and multiple pictures of our girls. Her rates are affordable and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a sitter.

Hello! I'm Kathleen and I've been working with dogs for over ...

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, Dacshunds, and Great Danes.
