very happy with our dog’s stay with Katie and her family. We felt that they really treated him as a family dog and she sent great updates and pictures through out the stay.

Katie and family were so wonderful and able to adjust to our travel/ flight issues. Wonderful people and very sweet. I would definitely use them again!

A loving home away from home

The more the merrier! We are Derek and Katie and we have 2 dogs, Peanut and Barrister. We absolutely love animals—possibly more than you. We live in a house and are close to two different dog parks so your animal will get plenty of exercise. Our dogs are treated like our children. I'm sure for any non dog lover they wouldn't understand. But All you dog owners know how it its...

We are happy ...

What Katie would like to know about your dog

I need to know if they have any special needs or habits. And any allergies to food or in general.

We tend to require at least a weeks notice of your pet's potential stay, along with a mandatory meet and greet for new dogs.

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
Special Needs Dog Experience
Injected Medication Administration
Can provide daily exercise

When Katie watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
We live in Manayunk. So the walks will be through the neighborhood and we go to the park almost daily.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
We have a finished basement with multiple dog beds. If the dog prefers to be crated that would be ideal.

Time I'll spend with your dog
As much as humanly possible.
