About Katie

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have 30 years of experience caring for dogs as well as many other animals (horses, cats, hamsters, bunnies, fish, goats, chickens, and birds)- perfectly natural, being from Minnesota and all. Owners of previous guests, have likened my understanding a dog's temperament to that of a 'dog whisperer.'

When watching your pampered pooch, my husband and I make it a point to ensure that this is also a vacation for your your pup. We typically take anywhere from 3- 5 walks per day. As a bonus, we have 1 dog park and neighborhood park minutes from our home, so socializing and exercise are never a problem. Our home is an average size, with plenty of room for our guests to roam freely and comfortably.

Most dogs have a routine at home, so we try to stick to their "schedule" to make their stay as comfortable as possible.

I am from Minnesota and came to Boston to attend Wellesley College. My husband is from S. Florida and has been a resident of Boston for over 15 years.

Katie and Jorge are excellent hosts. They housed and cared for my dog Maggie for 2 weeks. In addition to taking great care of her, they send vidoes/photos of her regularly which made our day.
I would love to send Maggie to them in the future as well!

Our dog was so well taken care of with Katie! We received frequent updates (with pictures) and never had to worry during our vacation. Which was a relief. Would highly recommend to others and will certainly be bringing our dog back to them in the future.

I just picked up my dog after another successful stay with Katie. She treats my dog like it's her own and my dog loves her. I get regular updates and photos while I'm away, which I appreciate so much. When I know I'm going away Katie is my first choice to care for my dog.
