Katy was great! She sent us tons of photos and was updating us on Rover at each visit. Roscoe and Scout took to her quickly and they were safe, happy, and well taken care of when we got home. Would definitely recommend Katy and have her take care of the pups again!

Kati is very attentive to all animals and in tune with their needs. She bonds easily with all pets, and is very conscientious, safety-conscious, and able to follow detailed instructions. Carolyn R.

Loving care for all breeds & needs!

Hi there!

Dogs have always been a part of my family and you can rest assured that I will treat your dog(s) as if they are my "fur-nieces/nephews"! Which, of course, means lots of attention, fun, safe and responsible activities, patience, understanding, compassion, and all-around great care!

A little background info about me:
Dog "sibling" from day one, dog "parent" since the age of eight, and neighborhood pet-sitter since I was a teen ...

What Katy would like to know about your dog

I love all sizes and breeds (including mixed and rescued), so you don't have to worry about breed/size stigma when it comes to telling me!

I love working with special needs animals, I just ask that you let me know up front what their specific needs are and what works best for your "furbaby" to accommodate those needs!

Favorite activities & toys, personality characteristics/traits, typical activity level, and any special/unique routines!

Whether your dog is up-to-date on vaccines and flea/tick prevention.

Any allergies/food restrictions.

Vet contact info (in case of emergencies -- always better to be prepared just in case and not need to use it than the alternative!).

Anything you'd like for me to know about your "furchild"! (You know them best, and I love hearing what you have to say about them!)

**Please let me know ahead of time if you have cats in your home.**
This does not affect walking or drop-in services (though I still need to know if there will be cats present in the home), but is something I need to prepare for ahead of time particularly when it comes to house sitting as I have a cat allergy (which is sad because I love cats, too). Thank you!
