Katie was great! She kept us well informed before and after her walk with our dog, even sending pictures and a note of her visit. Will definitely have her walk him again in the future when needed.

Highly recommend. We have two cats that need medication daily. With Katie’s tech experience she was the perfect person for the job. We could relax on vacation knowing our cats were getting their medication, food and playtime. Katie’s went above and beyond our expectations.

Katie took great care of our dogs while we were getting married. She send us pics and kept us up to date with how they were doing while we were away. We highly recommend her!

Dogs are my people

I am a newly licensed veterinary technician and graduated from Macomb's program earlier this year. 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 playtime! On top of that experience, I have completed a rigorous two-year veterinary ...

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 :)
