About Kate

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm active, fun-loving, and I love to go for hikes and runs around West LA. I live in Topanga Canyon with a beautiful, mountainside backyard, and I have a dog-safe/dog-friendly home space without stairs. I am a dog mom to Foxy Brown, an extremely friendly, gentle, well-behaved shelter dog from Taiwan. Together, one of our favourite adventures is the Huntington Dog Beach and the Topanga trails behind our house.

Pup perks!
I am able to provide daycare outside of my home, walking, and day time check-in services for dogs with aggression issues towards other dogs.

I have extensive experience with caring for dogs with leash aggression and separation anxiety.

I am comfortable caring for puppies and senior dogs with potty-training/bowel control difficulties (outside of my home).

I am experienced in administering medicine for pets, both orally and intravenously.

Restrictions:
We are unable to host/stay overnight with pups that are aggressive towards other dogs or people (as I am a dog mama as well as a dog sitter!).

We are unable to host pups that have difficulties with toilet training or bowel control out of respect for our landlord.

We are unable to overnight babysit pups in homes with cats (I sadly have cat allergies), but I love kitties and am available for daytime check-ins and walking services at mixed pet households.

I've known Kate for a long time and known her to always have had a keen interest in animals of all kinds. She currently owns a rescue dog which she looks after with the utmost care and responsibility, taking great pride in its good behavior, cleanliness and health. Kate is very fit herself and could be counted on to provide good fun exercise and a high standard of care for other people's dogs. I highly recommend her to anyone who wishes to have their dog cared for with kindness and responsibility, and with safety always of paramount concern.
