We have a new ...

Katie was THE BEST dog sitter I have ever had! She loves animals and took great care of my dogs and home. I have two older dogs that require a lot of medicine and attention and Katie took amazing care of them. I would highly recommend her!

What Katie would like to know about your dog

When Katie watches your pet

I'm in Lincoln Park, so there are a ton of green spaces around me that I can take them. I'm almost one of the few people in my building that does not own her own dog, so I can give your dog all the attention it needs!
