About Katie

Our 7 year old Golden Retriever (Rigger) would like to invite your dog(s) to stay with us while you are on vacation. We have been sitting and fostering dogs for more than 7 years.

My Husband Justin & I both work from home, so your dog will be well supervised and entertained 24/7.

We have a fully fenced in back yard and live in a quiet neighborhood near downtown. Our home is very dog friendly with wood, tile and area rugs throughout.

Each vacay for your dog includes 3 walks daily and unlimited indoor/outdoor fun! If your dog wants a fieldtrip to Fleet Peoples Dog park (swimming and running), we can accomodate!

Additional Services available include:
-Pickup/Dropoff at your home
-Additional Walks
-Care for elderly/disabled/special needs dogs

Small to XL Dogs are welcome!

Murphy had another great visit with Rigger, Katie and Justin. Eight nights was a long time to leave a five month old pup, but Katie sent pictures every day and we could see Murphy was having a great time, being spoiled and treated like part of their family. Katie and Justin have so much experience with dogs that it makes it easy for us to entrust Murphy to them. We highly recommend Rigger and family to keep your dog safe, healthy and happy. Murphy will be "vacaying" with Rigger for a couple nights again in the near future.
Katie, we are so happy we found you! Thanks for sending us pictures and updates regularly. Grady was well taken care of!
Our Goldendoodle Murphy turned 5 months old while staying with Katie, Justin and Rigger. We were thrilled that they were willing to welcome our pup into their home and family, and they were very accommodating to her "puppy" training needs. It was great receiving pictures of Murphy loving her time with Rigger. We couldn't be more pleased with our Dog Vacay experience, and already have two more Vacays reserved for Murphy at Rigger's house. We highly recommend Katie and her family if you're looking for great, fun care for your dog!
If I could give them a zero*I would. My dog got out, which happens. She was picked up and brought to the shelter. They then informs me that they had picked her up from the shelter. This was apparently a lie, as the shelter called me asking me to pick up my dog. The dogvacay team was great, helping me every step, however I cannot tolerate people lying to me about my dogs health and safety. Needless to say this will be the last time I use them and dog vacay as a whole.
First time leaving my Lexie girl with someone other than family and all worked out well. Updates throughout the week showed that Lexie was doing fine. She was a very sleepy girl her first day home. Seems that Rigger was the perfect host. Thanks Katie and Justin for taking such good care of Lexie!!
I highly recommend Katie for watching your pups! Her house is very pet friendly and she has tons of experience with all different types of dogs. We got multiple pictures throughout the day and our dogs seemed like they were right at home. They got plenty of exercise and had a great stay. We will be contacting Katie first, next time we need a place to bring our girls.
This was our first time using DogVacay and it was a wonderful experience. Katie was fantastic! She sent pictures and updates everyday and treated our dog, Huxley, like one of the family.
I recently moved with my family to Orlando and was looking for a great alternative to a local kennel stay where My dog would have been confined most of the day. Rudy, my "Chocolate Son" Lab had a great time. Katie treated him wonderfully and continually send me pics throughout the day of his activities. I highly recommend her services....A+++
