Ollie has so much fun at Kathy’s. He loves the long hikes and the down time at the house. He’s in great hands with Kathy!

Kathy is great! Whenever our very energetic Nova stays with her, she goes for daily walks/hikes. We always get detailed updates and lots of pictures. Nova seems to have a great time there. I highly recommend!

Kathy is awesome. My dog is very timid and doesn’t like to be away from me, but he just loves going to Kathy’s house. The separation is no problem and he is happy to be there. They go on lots of walks and he plays with the other dogs.

When Kathy watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
Yes! I love taking your pups for walks. We have great trails right off our back yard, and in addition the area has a multitude of really nice parks and conservation lands that I enjoy taking my guests to. I am careful to gear our walks to the pup's needs - some need really long walks to exercise all that energy; others do best with short walks considerate of their age and/or physical limitations. Some of our "field trips" in warm weather are to parks with swimming areas for the dogs, if dog parents are ok with their pups swimming and the dogs enjoy this activity.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Our guest pups generally sleep wherever they like, following their owners specifications (for instance, some bring crates and prefer that their routine of crating the dog be maintained). We prefer that they sleep downstairs on one of our dog beds or couches. Dog parents often like to bring their pup's favorite bedding from home. At times, dogs sleep upstairs with us, with our bed being off limits - too crowded with people and shelties already!

Time I'll spend with your dog
I am home most of each day and devote myself to making sure my guest pups get lots of affection, attention and exercise.
