About Katrina R.:

Our pets are our family. We love them and care for them as we would our children. That's why it's so important to have someone who takes care of them like family. I was raised with German Shepherds, who I helped train as service dogs. I have spent time with CCI and volunteered as a puppy raiser and trainer with their Golden Retrievers. My family currently has a beautiful Golden Retriever girl. If you want someone who knows how to take care of your family member, you found the right person.
If you have a cat or other exotic animal that needs special care let me know...

How long have you been a dog lover? Tell us about your history with dogs.

I have been an animal lover all my life. My childhood was full of every kid of creature, dogs, cats, birds, llamas, ferrets, mini goats. When your best friends dad is a veterinarian you meet many interesting characters. As an adult I have had a chinchilla, German Shepherd, and my current love a golden retriever. I have experience with service dogs, in training, puppy sitting, and socializing. Whether the dog is 3lbs or 125lbs I love them all.

What would you like to know about a dog before sitting him or her? Do you have any breed preferences?

Personality is important, is your furry friend outgoing, friendly, shy, aggressive, protective? Is she/he a barker, nipper, licker, jumper, digger? Do they have any allergies? Favorite toy, activity, special place to sleep?

Are you comfortable administering medication?

I have administered medication to sick pets in the past. I have had to mix special food and made sure that they were getting the proper amount prescribed by the veterinarian.

Are you willing to do additional tasks at my home while I'm away
(e.g., water plants, bring in the mail)?

Additional tasks such as mail, newspapers, plants, litter box clean up, etc...

How much time do you plan on spending with my dog each day?

Each individual has different needs. However, each day we would go for a walk, have play and cuddle time, along with food and potty breaks. If you already have a feeding schedule set up I will try to keep that schedule.

The girls love their visits with Kat. She is great about letting us know how they are doing, and seems to know them as well as, or even better than, we do.

I would highly recommend Katrina as an animal caregiver. Katrina has cared for both cats and dogs for me in a professional, loving and knowledgeable way. Katrina has assisted with training issues and as well as pet sitting. Dogs and cats seem to love her and she is responsible.
