Katie was very flexible with us, which was great. We needed someone short notice to just pop in once to check on the in-laws' cats. She was willing to make the drive out, probably a 40-45 minute drive for her. I offered to pay more for her trouble (double), which she accepted. I even left $5 extra because it was a few days before Christmas. Though she did most of what we asked -- food, water ...

I boarded my German Shepherd Dog with Katie for a week and a half over Christmas break. She was excellent, especially with the short notice.

I recommend boarding your dog with Katie. She has a safe and tidy place to accommodate several dogs. They can be separated in kennels or play pens as needed, but are allowed to interact and play. She also has a large, fenced yard for them to explore while being supervised. My two boys were happy and well taken care of.

Experienced and Active Dog Walker

I'm an experienced professional pet sitter and dog owner of two wonderful rescued dogs, Lulu & Khalid. I've cared for thousands of dogs as a professional pet sitter and started by fostering rescued dogs over 10 years ago. I love being outdoors (especially hiking) with dogs and helping pet owners feel at ease knowing their beloved pet is taken care of!

I offer weekly walk service for dogs in the Woodbridge/Dumfries/Quantico area as ...

What Katie would like to know about your dog

I welcome all kind pups of all ages, sizes and breeds to join our pack to enjoy a nice space while their parents are away. 99% of dogs love me and I connect with them. Typically, I meet new dogs first before I board. If I am providing on-call or weekly walks, I'm totally comfortable without meeting them beforehand. Whatever the owner is comfortable with is good for me!

When Katie watches your pet

I provide dogs with three daily walks in my neighborhood with the option to visit a private dog park for high energy dogs! I have tons of toys, balls and the dogs have fun with each other!

My space is tiled, clean and spacious. I also provide an optional bath/brush service upon request for boarded dogs so the go home clean. Grooming dogs also promotes health, wellness and hygiene, decreasing the chances of germs or parasites.
