Kathryn is an excellent, responsible, and caring sitter! She took care of my high-maintenance and very energetic border collie/pointer/lab/hound mix for a week. It was the longest I'd left her in a year and I came back to a very happy and healthy dog. We're sad Kathryn is moving out of Chicago or else we'd have her back again!

Kathryn continuously showed professionalism while caring for my families pets. My family pets included one golden retriever, one jack russel rat terroir, and one cat. On multiple occasions Kathryn would come to my families home on short notice and care for my families pets. Kathryn was always a dependable and trusting individual that could be counted on when our family pets needed care.

Kathryn is friendly, enthusiastic and reliable. She obviously loves dogs and animals and has been a pleasure to work with. She is our go-to when my husband and I go out of town. Our Pomeranian is wary of strangers but warmed to Kathryn right away. We also have two golden retrievers that adore her. Such a relief to have found someone we trust to take care of our pets when we're away.

When Kathryn watches your pet

There is a nice little park right next to my apartment. I have a soccer ball and a couple tennis balls that I like to bring out there to play. I live in a quiet and nice neighborhood and am about a ten minute walk from the lakeshore. I have two dog-friendly cats that love to play also.
