Kathryn is so great! Our dog is very difficult and big and she managed him well. It's obvious she has a lot of experience with animals. She is also very flexible with timing, gives you updates, and takes great photos:)

Kathryn is absolutely wonderful. My older dog settled right in with her, and got lots of loving attention during her week with Kathryn.

Kathryn was absolutely incredible! She was so sweet and attentive with our dog, Zoe. Since Zoe was feeling a little shy her first night, Kathryn noticed she wasn’t eating and attempted numerous ways of enticing her to eat— even hand feeding. She truly went above and beyond! She was excellent in terms of communication and sent fantastic updates and photos. Zoe had such a great time she’s been napping for practically the entire ...

PAWS Volunteer and Dog Lover!

Hi there, my name is Kathryn! I have had a dog since I was an child and have a sweet spot in my heart for pups - I absolutely adore all dogs regardless of size, shape, and age. I moved to Chicago 3 years ago to start my full-time job and had serious pet withdraw - I was so sad without a pup around! That's when I found Paws Chicago and immediately signed up to volunteer. I ...

What Kathryn would like to know about your dog

I don't have any breed preferences, I have tons of experience with teeny tiny pups all the way through massive dogs - really comfortable with them all! Before watching your pet I'd like to learn about their routines for feeding and exercise, if they have any special needs or daily medicine, if they have preferences or quirks to be aware of (not petting their head, afraid of the vacuum, etc.) and lastly if they are allowed on furniture or not (I'll follow your rules and am fine either way :) ). We can learn more about each other during a meet & greet!

When Kathryn watches your pet

I live in a roomy apartment in Bucktown - right by the 606, Churchill Field Park, and Walsh Park. I love spending time with dogs, so I can assure you that your furry friend and I will have a great time and that you will receive pictures of the fun and love every day! I do my best to make sure your dog stays with the same routines at my house as they do at yours - toys, treats, food, walk routines.. I keep it all as familiar as I can, since that helps with adjustment.
