Katie was wonderful with Riah, she took Riah on many hikes and walks and she was a very sleepy puppy when we brought her home! We got frequent and detailed updates and a lot of adorable photos of our little lady, would highly recommend!

Our cats gave Katie hell and she responded with nothing but compassion and patience. In addition to detailed daily updates (and adorable pictures!) she kept us in the loop about the mischief they were causing and her methods on how to work through it. Per her suggestion we actually ended up scheduling her for a few extra visits which helped immensely with our cats happiness and therefore their behavior. Strongly recommend!

Brodie is basically our first baby so, when it came time to finding someone to care for him during a long trip over the holidays, it was a little overwhelming. When I met Katie, I felt that we had a great connection and a mutual respect for each other and the pets in our lives. Katie is thorough, very professional and completely wonderful. We were delighted with pictures, messages and adventures our Brodie Bear experienced ...

Reliable and caring, lots of hikes!

I love spending time with animals. My dog and two cats are the lights of my life, and I embrace the opportunity to extend the love and care that I provide my own pets on to your furry family members. I ensure that your animals are given plentiful attention and well cared for in your absence.

I spent a year volunteering at the Boulder Humane Society and so have had experience with dogs and cats ...

What Katie would like to know about your dog

I would like to know about any fears that your dog or cat may have, as well as how your dog gets along with other dogs and how s/he does off-leash, both on the trail and at the dog park. I am interested in any important routines that you engage in with your pets at home so that I can do my best to continue them in your absence.

When Katie watches your dog

When your dog stays at my house, he or she will get 2-3+ walks/outdoor play sessions a day. My house backs directly to a park and is only a minute away from the CU South Open Space, so opportunities for outdoor recreation are plentiful and my own dog and I spend a lot of time outside together. We go for hikes in the foothills often and take day trips to the mountains to go cross country skiing when the weather is suitable. We also visit the dog park on occasion. With your permission, your dog will enjoy any or all of these activities.

While my backyard is not enclosed by a fence, dogs who are small enough to utilize our upstairs dog door (up to approximately 40lbs) can let themselves out onto our enclosed balcony to use the "porch potty."

At bedtime, your dog is welcome to sleep in his or her crate, on a dog bed, in bed with my husband and myself, or wherever s/he feels most comfortable.
