I feel so blessed to have Kathy and Craig as our pet sitters. After using them since 2015, they are like family to us. Amy and Brandi had a great time this past weekend. We feel so at peace when they are under Kathy's care. Thank you! Your one in a million!

Thank you Linda - the granny age girls are wonderful - I have a soft spot for the aging - ...

About Kathy's Home

When Kathy watches your pet

We provide lots of outdoor exercise in our very large backyard & fenced hillside with trails cut through for running & play. We do not take dogs out to the streets for walks. We live in a secluded & safe neighborhood but our property size allows for lots of exercise and play.

All dogs sleep in a dog bed, dog pad or crate at the foot our bed. Some sleep on our bed if needed to make them feel at home. We want everyone close at hand if there were ever an emergency during the night. We have a well practiced emergency plan if ever needed.

We are retired and work from home, so pets have our companionship 24 hours a day. (Hopefully we all get to sleep about 8 hrs!) We treat guest dogs as we do our own - which means lots of petting, cuddling, lap sitting, and playtime in the yard.
