Mary Kate has watched over my boxer, Miley, well over a dozen times! Never once was I worried for Miley as I knew she was probably having more fun with Mary Kate than she does with me! Even when I would contact her last-minute (due to my own poor planning) she never failed to accommodate me. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants a knowledgeable and patient guardian for their pups.

Marykate would be a responsible and loving dog caregiver. I have known Marykate for twenty-eight years. She is a kind-hearted, generous, thoughtful, responsible, gentle dog owner herself. I have observed her with my dog, Buddy, as well as her pets, a dog, and a rabbit. Marykate is very perceptive and observant when it comes to getting to know a dog and how to greet it initially and then how to meet the individual needs of ...

Marykate is AMAZING with animals!! She treats all animals as if they were own. She is calm and patient and you can really get a feel of how strong her passion and dedication is. I absolutely recommend her to anyone who needs to have their pet be in good hands.

Soon-to-be RVT & fur baby favorite

You can finally be at ease while you are away because I will watch over your pets like they are my own! I am a patient and compassionate individual, eager to work hard to become your pet's #2 (because nothing can replace you)! Your pet is also in GREAT hands with a future RVT!
In Aug 2018, I will complete my degree in the Purdue Veterinary Technology program and become a registered veterinary nurse shortly ...

What Marykate would like to know about your dog

I do not discriminate against any breeds, bully breeds are a personal favorite.
I care to know as much about your dog as you want to share! It important that your pet get the same level of care from me as they do when you are home, so the more I know about your pet's quirks and routine, the better I will be at providing the correct structure while you are gone.

Additional information that is critical for me to know includes the following:

-name of vet, I recommend you inform them of your absence and give you full consent to provide them with my name and contact information, in the event of an emergency

-date of last vaccinations

-current medications, including flea/tick and heartworm preventatives

-any special diets or exercise requirements/restrictions

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
First Aid/CPR
Special Needs Dog Experience
Injected Medication Administration
Senior Dog Experience
Can provide daily exercise

When Marykate watches your pet

Rain or shine, your pet will always get a chance to enjoy the outdoors. You can request that we stay in the neighborhood or venture out to the nearest park. I am confident at handling even the most exuberant dog on leash and always keep the poop scoop within reach.
Let me know what activity your pet loves to do best, I'll make sure it is included in our day!
