Kathy was awesome, she took care of my very energetic dog by taking her to the beach and letting her burn off her excess energy. I got pictures of my pup every day and felt like she was in great hands the whole time.

Fantastic. We were visiting LA for Thanksgiving and staying at an Airbnb rental near Kathy in Long Beach. She watched our pet while we went out for dinner and also during the day when we went to a museum. She was very organized and had a dog seat for our pet when she picked him up. Her home is right across the street from the beach. Our dog had a great time with Kathy both ...

What Kathy would like to know about your dog

I like to know if they are on any medications and if they have any problems- physical or psychological- that I need to be aware of. With the big dogs, I like BBC to see how they behave when on the leash or with other dogs: Will they pull or suddenly yank on the leash and try to drag me in the direction they want to go, or will they walk close to my side and respond quickly to my voice and commands? Do they interact well with other dogs and can they be trusted to run off leash in the dog park that is fenced off and enclosed? I like to get an idea of their personalities and to learn ahead of time if they have any bad habits so I can stay a step ahead of them and keep temptation out of their path.
their personalites are- the things they like or dislike since I wouldn't want to create a situation that upsets or scares them. Sometimes dogs have a past before they come to their forever homes and there are things that have happened that will affect them forever.
I have to say I like retrievers best. I love to see the dogs when they chase after a ball or a stick. They look like they are having so much fun.

When Kathy watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I live in a very dog friendly area where people often put out water bowls or bowls with small treats for passing dogs. Many shops in the area welcome dogs and the owners greet the dogs as well as the customers when we come in. We can walk along the beach or through the neighborhood where houses have yards and lots of grass and we will often encounter other dogs along the way.

Regarding your dog's sleeping arrangements?
Wherever you prefer. My couch is dog friendly as is my bed. I like their company at night as well as during the day. As long as they don't hog the covers I'm happy to share my bed with your dog.

Time I'll spend with your dog:
As much time as possible. I don't work outside the home and most of the places I might need to go on a daily basis, are dog friendly so your furry friends can tag along with me for company.

I treat dogs like a combination of both best friends and family member. They are welcome to sleep with me (as long as they aren't too big). If they're too big for the bed, they will find my couch is very comfortable. My whole place is dog friendly; even the bathroom. I've learned they don't want me to go there alone so I just let them come in if that makes them happy. However some scurry back to the couch the second that they hear the shower come on. ;)
