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.

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.
