Katie was amazing! I have 3 dogs and she was able to handle all of them. Even on the walks, which they loved. It was nice to have her come to the house and have the ability to keep them in their environment. Katie kept me updated with pictures of their adventures. Can't say enough about how happy I am with Katie. I would definitely book with her again. Thanks Katie for all you do ...

This was our first time having someone outside of family watch our senior dogs and she went above and beyond. She sent updates at every visit and made us feel very comfortable! We knew our fur babies were in great hands and would definitely recommend Katie!?

When our usual babysitter was unavailable we reluctantly came to Rover – having not used this service before and being very protective of our baby, we had no idea what to expect. We couldn't be more thankful to have found Katie through this app. She is so good with our fur baby, and I truly feel that she enjoys taking care of him. Katie communicates every step of the way – before and after – and sends updates ...

Thank you so much I really appreciate it! I really enjoy watching Nixon and I hope to see him again ...

Dogs are my people

I am currently a veterinary technician student at Macomb community college looking to spend more time with the furry friends that I am so passionate about! I have a Doberman/lab mix of my own who is high energy, so I know exactly how to accommodate for young, energetic dogs! I have worked at a boarding/daycare facility for 6 years so I have a lot of experience with animal handling, animal care, and interactive ...

What Katie would like to know about your dog

Before sitting for a dog, I prefer to schedule a meet-and-greet prior to booking to make sure that the dog is a good fit for myself. Of course I would like to be informed of whether the dog has any history of medical issues, medications that need to be given, or any other special requests from the owner. I want to keep your dog and YOU comfortable while watching them! Therefore, let me know what they enjoy doing. Do they like going for walks or playing fetch? Are they more laid back and prefer cuddling up on the couch? All in all, I am concerned with what your dog is accustomed to on a daily basis so that I can provide them with the best care for you while keeping them in their comfort zone!

I do not have any breed preferences. Due to my past, and current, work experience, I have become comfortable around all sizes and breeds of dogs.

When Katie watches your pet

I love being physically active and outside enjoying good weather (as long as Michigan decides to cooperate which doesn't happen as much as we would like it to). I am used to taking my own dog for 20-30 minute walks or playing fetch, so if that's what your dog likes/needs on a daily basis, I would enjoy doing it! If your dog is more of the laid back type, I don't mind lounging around either :)
