About Catalina

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Just like a second home! Have the peace of mind with our **FULL TIME CARE**, attention, exercise and lots of pampering; I’ll care your dog as my own! My husband and I are dog lovers and we will surely enjoy the company of your doggy at home. I welcome our guests to a clean, safe and comfortable space, where they won’t be unattended, alone, crated or bored.
In our care, your dogs will be free to wander, play and rest at our house in a space prepared for them and under constant supervision. We have a huge well fenced back yard that our guest totally love! Plenty of space to run, play, sniff around, take sunbaths and take care of their doggy needs, is just like a small dog park!!***

For both, daycare and overnight stay I have a very **FLEXIBLE SCHEDULE**. From early morning (6 am) to late night (10 pm) we will adapt to your schedule needs. I'll follow all your care instructions (food, medicine, vitamins). I'll gladly be their second home :) !!
You only need to bring his food and treats of his delight; optionally you can bring his kennel, blankets or toys. You don’t need to worry for food or toy possession complications; I do feed them separately and supervise their play time.

I live with my husband and my 2 dogs:
Ulver (Husky , male, neutered, 1.8 years old) and
Turuk (Lab/terrier mix, male, neutered, 2.5 years old).
My pups are very playful, kind and patient with other dogs no matter the size, age or temperament.

***additional dog discount ($31)
***more than 7 days (overnight) discount :)

Looking forward to meet you :)
Thank you for trusting in my care!

---------- Under my care-------
Dogs would be given devoted attention throughout the day. I’m always present in the home, with exceptions no longer than 2 hours (once or twice a week), dogs are rarely crated.
I have doggy beds, and I allow them on the couch and in some cases in our bed (depending on size, though :) ) , please provide his favorite dogie bed/blanket.

Some weekends we love to go to Orion's or Red Oak's Dog Parks. (Off course with owner’s approval)
Outdoors or indoors I'm always aware of their safety and attentive to their needs and behavior. I treat them always with respect and love.

-----According to owner's preferences and instructions I can offer:-----
* Long/short walks.
* Medicine under strict schedule.
* Crates (medium and large).
* Unlimited potty brakes.
* Outdoors/indoors play time.
* Dog park visit.
* Bed time treat (dog biscuit).
* Treat Training.
* Punctual meal time.
* Baths & nail trim (extra fee)


----I would like to know more about your pup. -------
His playing preferences, food allowances and prohibitions, his unique behavior when he/she wants something, any training which would need support and backing, any special care for his ears, eyes, teeth or maybe an injury, His social behavior with humans and other doggies and also if he or she does have a bad habit to watch over for his safety.

I do not have any breed, sex or size preference. But we would prefer potty trained dogs, however if not, **I offer my support in the potty training of the puppies. **

We wouldn’t admit any dog with aggressive behavior or that shows excessive nervousness or defensiveness, though we offer special attention with separation anxiety, fireworks fear, shyness or nervousness, aggression is something we won’t permit for the safety of our guest and our family members.

Also, dogs must be current on vaccines (especially rabies). We live in a flea free home.

I have experience with administrating medication, be that orally, intramuscular, or superficial to the skin.

Looking forward to meet you :)
Thank you for trusting in my care!

We were preparing for a week vacation in Las Vegas and really did not want to leave our Lucy in a kennel, so we found Catalina and her husband on DogVacay. We did the meet and greet, all went well, so we booked. Then Lucy got sick and required some medicine to be administered while we were gone. We provided the medication info, Lucy's bowls, her blanket from home, her food and medicine, and Catalina and her husband had no issues with administering the medication the way we requested. They also know how to handle multiple dogs to prevent issues (such as separate feedings). The house is very clean and the big back yard is amazing with lots of room for them to run around and play!

While we were gone, we received pics first of Lucy sharing her blanket, then we watched a developing friendship between the dogs - and any new dog that they were watching. We were able to relax knowing that Lucy was in good hands and having such a fun time playing with doggy friends. We were updated daily and even received pictures of her getting to spend time with the humans of the house, as well. When I picked her up, all of Lucy's items were ready to go and I was greeted by my happy dog.

Catalina was very responsive anytime I had a question and it felt like I was simply texting a friend who was watching Lucy. I would not hesitate to request Catalina's help the next time we have a need. I may even need to book a play date soon so Lucy can see her new friends again. :)

Thank you, Catalina!

Maizy seemed to have a great time with Catalina. I received pictures of her playing throughout the day. I will definitely use her again.
Catalina was amazing with my pup. I was so anxious to leave her alone for the first time, and Catalina really took it upon herself to make sure I felt comfortable. My dog has had a rough time with multiple surgeries on her back legs and is somewhat shy as well. Catalina brought out the playful side of her all the while making sure that she never got hurt. She sent me pics and updates everyday and made sure I was aware of anything that was going on with my little baby! I definitely will be using Catalina again!! Thanks so much for being wonderful!!!

Our 5 year old labrador had a great stay as usual. Catalina is good with dogs and the fenced yard is a great plus!
great!
My two dogs loved their stay with Catalina! Her large, fenced yard is perfect for running and playing and my dogs came home exhausted and happy. Catalina was friendly and professional, and her work hours are very flexible if you need to pick up later in the day. I also appreciated the photos I received of my dogs so I could see what they were up to! I would recommend Catalina and I know my dogs will be visiting again.

I could not be more happy with my experience. Katalina replies promptly to any inquiry I make. She is so nice and even sent some photos of our dog. I will definitely be using her again.
Abel had another great stay at Catalina's house! She keeps me updated and Abel is extremely well cared for while there! He comes home tired out and happy. He is very excited each time he sees Catalina and her human/fur family!
This was my first experience with a pet sitter and I must say it was wonderful. I can find nothing to fault with the way the entire day went. Katalina is a very gracious host and I never saw her get even the slightest bit upset with any of the dogs that were there during the drop off or pickup. Beleive me, they were a frisky bunch. Luna loved the play time and came home exhausted. She told us that she wanted to go back by just the way she smiled and layed around the next day.

It was great for the both of us!

Kaia had a blast at Katalina's! She was so exhausted when she came home that evening that she couldn't even move - which for my crazy German shepherd is saying something! Thanks, Katalina!!
Abel has a wonderful time whenever he goes to Katalina's home! He has made friends with her dogs and is excited from the moment we pull in the driveway. Katalina is an excellent caregiver. Abel was there for several days of daycare when he had stitches in his paw and needed to be constantly observed and tended to. He was very happy each time I picked him up and the updates and pictures Katalina sent made it a lot easier when we have to be away from him!

Katalina was great with our dog. She sent us pictures of our dog playing every day. She frequently gave us updates about what our dog was doing and how he was.
Her dogs are friendly so there's nothing to worry about. We will call her again for sure!!

Katalina is such a warm person. She has an obvious love of dogs and is very intuitive when it comes to the nature of each dog she cares for. I received photos of my Parker playing, which was a great break from my workday out of state.

Katalina has two dogs that were exceptional playmates with mine... it was a true vacation for my pup! What's great for my dog is Katalina's huge fenced-in yard... no need to worry that Parker would make a plan of escape. And why would he? He had two buddies to keep him active every day! Thank you, Katalina.

My 1 yr-old Basenji/Italian greyhound has stayed twice now with Katalina and has thoroughly enjoyed it. The big dogs are good with her and she likes having 'siblings' for a week.

She was not 100% potty-trained the first time she stayed and while some homes may not have welcomed her back, Katalina did. Wonderful host, Shay will be back.

Leo did wonderful with Katalina, she is a great host. Her dogs are well behaved and friendly.
Katalina did a great job taking care of our dogs. She made sure that the dogs had lots of fun playing outdoors because they were very tired when we brought them home. Katalina is definitely a 5 star rating and we will call her again.
Max and Lu have stayed with Katalina numerous time. She is great at keep us updated with pictures. The boys always have a great time and come home happy and worn out from playing! I know they're in great hands when they stay with her.
Katalina was a wonderful host for my Lily. She sent me several updates throughout Lily's stay with a bunch of pictures, and I know that Lily had a fantastic time playing in Katalina's huge yard because she was exhausted for a full day after she got home! I would definitely recommend using Katalina for your pup's next stay!

Katalina was great! Albie loved his time at her house with the other dogs. Katalina was very flexible with our drop off and pick up time, it was also helpful that she lives so close! The pictures we received while Albie was at her home were adorable. He had a great time and we will definitely be using Katalina for future trips!
