Katie has gone above and beyond to take care of my puppy from when he came home at 8 weeks until he reached 4 months, twice a week while I was at work. She did all the things you hope a sitter would do and most of all made my pups adjustment to my home much better.

Katie came into our lives when one of our dogs suddenly passed at the age of 9. Bailey and Sadie had been a pair for 9 years and Sadie relied heavily on Bailey for confidence and courage. Bailey's passing was devastating for Sadie. We brought Katie in to give Sadie some extra love and attention, 3x/week, while she adjusted to life without Bailey. Katie dove right in, gaining Sadie's trust after just a couple ...

Turning Passion Into Profession

I am a professional animal caretaker, working full time as a canine care technician at Great Plains SPCA, an animal shelter in Merriam, Kan. In my job I am responsible for every aspect of caring for the homeless dogs: cleaning, bathing, grooming, exercise, feeding, enrichment, etc. It is a big responsibility to be accountable for the physical, mental and emotional needs of so many homeless animals but I love what I do and feel lucky ...

What Katie would like to know about your dog

I do not have any breed preferences - I don't discriminate! - however, I would like to know of any phobias or triggers for anxiety for each animal, if any. I would also like to know the command words you use with your pets, again, if any.

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
Special Needs Dog Experience
Senior Dog Experience
Can provide daily exercise

When Katie watches your pet

I take a balanced and step-by-step approach to caring for animals. The first and most important step is individually evaluating each furry friend I am caring for. No two animals are the same and it is important to understand each animal's individual needs.
After evaluating, I dive right in. I am a very enthusiastic and hands-on animal lover by nature but am very understanding of the animals that want their space, especially from newcomers.
I am an advocate of motivating and rewarding by affection and praise rather than through punishment.
I pride myself on catering my style to each individual owner and animal. I am very flexible and open to tweaking my pet-sitting style so don't be shy about providing feedback!
