Always a great stay for my special needs, quirky boy. He loves Kathy and I drive 85 miles so he can stay with her when I am away. She provides updates and pictures regularly. Kathy is wonderful!

We speak dog!

I am a stay at home mom, caring for my active grown-up daughter, Sarah, who has Down syndrome. We have almost always had a dog in our lives but are presently without pets. We adore the company of dogs and it is marvelous to see how Sarah brightens up when she has a dog to love her/love back. We would love to have your dog to spoil and keep us company on our daily ...

What Kathy would like to know about your dog

I will ask you plenty of questions when we first meet, but foremost, I would want to know if your dog is up to date with his vaccinations, whether there are any special medical or safety concerns, how he gets along with other dogs, feeding needs and preferences, how he likes to play and, of course, what you feel I should know.

When Kathy watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
Our neighborhood has great places to walk. We are literally steps from miles and miles of trails. One of our favorite and most frequent walks is from our home to Whatcom Falls Park, a round trip of about four and a half miles. On our less ambitious days or when we have older dogs we may go to the dog park or just wander around on our many interesting side streets.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Wherever he wants. We have a dog bed in the living room but if he is terribly homesick he can sleep in our bedroom.

Time I'll spend with your dog
Your dog will hang out with me wherever I am. Mostly I am home but if I do go out he can ride along. Every day includes a walk.
