About Me

Hello, my name is Katherine and I am a stay at home mom with a working husband and two energetic animal loving daughters. I am in process of obtaining an undergraduate degree in biological science. Throughout my life I have always loved all types of animals and cared for them as well. Many different types in fact such as dogs, cats, horses, reptiles and birds. In the past I have volunteered at the Sacramento State University animal vivarium prior to moving to the Bay Area. I also have experience volunteering at "Cats about Town"; cleaning, playing, fostering and bottle feeding kittens.

Our house will be your dogs house away from home. They will have room to play and lay, on our acre lot, walking distance to parks and trails in the Palomares Hills. Adventure in all corners of the yard from the chicken coup to the wood pile. In the large open yard there are two automatic waterers. One waterer is the lick style and the other is an elevated bowl. When it's time to relax and go to sleep they will come Inside the living room of the house where we have large pet beds and two independent kennels If your pet prefers their own domain. Our family dogs stay in the same living room with yours. No preferential treatment here. On rainy days this is also the place to hang out and stay dry.

If you have any questions, please ask. We understand that your dog is an extension of your family and dropping him or her off with strangers is unsettling. We want to take that unsettling feeling away and let you know that we truly care for the welfare of your family member.

Please check in with me if my calendar says I am booked. Sometimes I have a puppy just for part of the day, but it still says I am booked for the whole day.
I am flexible and have the space for more than 3 dogs, so if you are in doubt feel free to message me.

Below are some reviews of Katherine L from real dog owners who have used their services on!

Average Rating:
  • She is THE BEST!!!!!! I think Caly wants to live with them. She is glad to see us when we return, but she looks back when she has to leave. It is truly a vacation for Caly and we always, always feel good about leaving her there.

  • Amazing! It was our dog Hippa's first time away from us and we were nervous as she has severe separation anxiety. Katherine recommended that we bring Hippa over to her house a few days before so that she could get acquainted—great idea! Katherine kept us informed nearly every day with pictures and little tidbits about how Hippa was doing. When Hippa got a slight ear infection, Katherine let us know right away and did an ear rinse once a day. Hippa got along really well with Katherine's dog, Brandy, too. All in all, knowing that Hippa was in such capable hands let us really enjoy our vacation and we loved knowing that she was having a great time too. We will definitely think of Katherine first the next time we decide to go on vacation.

  • Katherine is awesome, King loves her & her family. She is definitely my #1 sitter.

  • This family is amazing. They went way beyond when taking care of our Caly. We are using her again soon. Do not hesitate to use this family they are loving, conscientious and responsible. I don't think Caly wanted to leave.

  • Awesome host!
