Kathryn is the best -- extremely reliable, thoughtful and great with our puppy, Josie. She loves Josie and Josie loves her back. It is so nice to have someone we can count on like Kathryn.
Kathryn is great! Very responsive to communication, patient and flexible, and a true lover of dogs. We feel very lucky to have found her, especially since she has a special love for and comfort with pitbulls. We are excited to keep working with her for drop-in visits for our pup. Thank you Kathryn!
Kathryn has been a complete joy. We are so lucky to have found her. She is super communicative, trustworthy and has so much love for our pup.

The better I know your dog, the happier they are.
