We were really pleased with Kathy and the way she looked after our elderly mixed breed dog. He’s a gentle old soul nowadays but has always been on the anxious side, but when we came back from our week away he was calm and happy - I absolutely could not have asked for more! The house was left in great condition too, overall I would not hesitate to recommend Kathy as a sitter.

My older dog stayed with Kathy for 10 days this summer and she took great care of him. She sent daily updates and photos. You can tell she really loves dogs. Thanks, Kathy ?

Let's Go Outside! No? Let's Chill!

There is nothing better than a walk in The Arb, a hike at Wilson Mountain or a stroll through the neighborhood with a pup at my side. I live across from the Arnold Arboretum. As a dog owner, I am there twice a day.
Dogs are one of the best things in life. If your pup stays with me, they'll get scrambled eggs for breakfast (if you want), plenty of ear scratches and belly rubs ...

What Kathy would like to know about your dog

I would like to meet your dog before taking them for a walk. I want to know their favorite places, the special things they like and what you want for your best friend.
If your dog is going to stay with me, they will meet my dog, Lucky beforehand. Lucky loves other dogs, but it's best to have them meet and in the same space before any overnights!
