This is the first time I have used a "in-home" boarding for my fur babies and I was extremely impressed. I shed a couple of tears leaving them as they are my babies after all our children have moved out on their own so leaving them is always hard for me. Doberman's intimidate people however Katie expressed her excitement before they even arrived. Upon arrival I immediately felt as ease as she welcomed us into ...
Katie was absolutely amazing and my pups took to her immediately! We were hunting with no cell service for a week and she definitely went above and beyond. Our doggos had so much love that when we got back they weren't stressed out and we could tell they had lots of extra love while we were gone ?. Katie even took our trash out and checked the mail while we were gone and she was ...
Katie was AMAZING. She was super helpful in the pick up and drop off process of my dog and very easy to get a hold of and communicate with. She sent many photos and updates throughout the day. I could tell she loved my dog and took care of him like he was her own which was one of the most important things to me when looking for a dog sitter. I highly recommend Katie ...
Loving animal Momma
I have had pets my whole life. If I had the land and resources I would dedicate my life to rescuing abused and neglected animals and hope to someday do that. For now I am just loving the few rescue pets we have and raising our 2 kids and one niece. While some children may not be the greatest with animals, in our home we have always made respect for animals a top priority. With ...
What Katie would like to know about your dog
Anything that you would want us to know is what I want to know. Beyond that, your dog has to be ok with kids. I say this knowing that any dog, regardless of breed or history could suddenly respond to an unpredictable child in an aggressive way however my kids have been raised around many animals. Our own and many others, including very large breed dogs and dogs that generally are not comfortable with kids and we are on top of the safety issues there as well as our children being extremely cautious and respectful to all dogs. That being said, if your dog has a ever bit someone or another animal (only when UNPROVOKED), we would not be interested at this time. We understand behavior in dogs and that bites or rough play happen sometimes with the best of dogs that just were acting out of either fear or playing too hard and that is something different entirely. We will never put your dog in a position where he or she would accidentally bite someone or another dog.
I also would need to know your house rules regarding treats (human food or otherwise), rules you would like enforced so they don't come home acting like they've been at grandma's for a week. We welcome snuggles and couch napping in our home and would never kick a dog off the bed so if this isn't ok in your home just let us know and we will be sure to continue that rule when at our home. We just want your pet and you to be comfortable with us so we are open to any special requests or needs.
