Katie was amazing! She was super flexible with drop off and pick up time, which made everything so much easier. My pup was happy when I picked her up, and I plan on scheduling with Katie again.

Katie was sooo accommodating! She sent me so many photos and kept me updated. She also was flexible when I had to extend by another night. Thanks Katie!

What Katie would like to know about your dog
