I had an amazing pet sitter for over 8 years who recently retired. My 2 little dogs are somewhat "special needs" - both are rescues as strays who came with some baggage. I didn't think I could find a replacement for my awesome sitter, but I did... with Katie!

Upon first meeting my pups, she was super tuned in to my dogs, one of which is very barky with strangers. I admit I was nervous to ...

Katie is a pet lover. She will treat your animals with kindness and love. Katie is reliable and trustworthy. I love the way she has cared for my pets. It's the little extra pets and snuggles that make my pets happy to stay with her. They also really enjoy the adventures and hikes she takes them on too.

Friendly PDX Pet Care Gal!

I love dogs, and I don't care who knows. Pugs, Poodles, Labs, Retrievers, Bull dogs, Chihuahua's, and homely looking mixes. Every one of them has a special personality and different needs. I cater to all personalities. If you dog demands cuddles...awesome. If they need space...awesome. ***AT CURRENT TIME, I CAN ONLY ACCEPT DOGS LARGER THAN 35 LBS IF THEY HEEL WELL (DUE TO RECOVERING BACK).

Every dog has special needs! If you dog ...

What Katie would like to know about your dog

When Katie watches your pet

I'm a huge walker, and normally try a different neighborhood or park to walk a few times a week. I may stop and grab a coffee at an outdoor patio, so me and your pooch can relax and watch people. I also like to go to 1000 Acres for those dogs that like to expend energy! If your dog likes to swim, I can take them to the river or indoor swimming facilities (experienced w/ this).
