Kathy is an animal lover. She has been dependable, compassionate, trustworthy (keys to my place) and timely in taking care of my wonderful Gus (Springer Spaniel) . She would go out of her way to do something 'fun' for him, take him a treat, go on a walk to his favorite 'sniffing place', or to the park. He was lucky to have her. So was I. She's just super amazing and wonderful for all creatures.
Kathy loves animals. I have seen her care for and love my dog and our two cats. She possesses a keen understanding of my little dog's personality. He is shy and he very quickly trusted and felt comfortable with her. I have seen Kathy with several types of dogs large and small and she was great with all of them. I think she will be a wonderful addition to the Rover team.
My dog Tucker loved Kathy. She took the time to get to know him and understand his way of communicating. Kathy is always gentle and intuitive. Highly recommended!
Big to small, I've worked with all!
I grew up with a dog and cats, dog sat for several years for a 110 pound american bulldog, was the step-mama to a chihuahua for 6 years, volunteered at a wildlife rehabilitation center for 5 years, dog and cat sat for over 20 years, worked at the Woodland Park Zoo for 11 years, and I worked in a feral cat clinic for 4 years. Always an animal lover, I look forward to getting back ...
What Kathy would like to know about your dog
I don't have any breed preferences; but I will be up front and say that I am not the person for a high energy dog needing a brisk walk/jog. I'm a great match for mellow dogs, small dogs, big lovable breeds, and snuggly dogs. I'd love to know if your dog has any particular problems or anxieties so we can make our time the best it can be. Does your dog have a favorite place or favorite toy?
