About Kate

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! We're Kate & Paul, a responsible, dog-loving couple in a spacious Boerum Hill apartment. We have a medium-sized dog who loves to have furry friends over, and two cats who are very tolerant of well-behaved pups.

We live on the ground floor and have a massive, private backyard for your dog to run around. Our neighborhood is quiet and calm, so we will also provide stress-free walks, and we're a quick stroll from either Fort Greene Park or the Pier 6 dog run at Brooklyn Bridge Park. Whether your pup loves company or prefers to chill without many other dogs, s/he will have plenty of outdoor options!

We both work full-time (approximately 8:30-6:30) on weekdays, so your dog should be OK (no barking, no property-destruction, no accidents) without human supervision for that length of time. We can provide full-time supervision on weekends/holidays.

Our pup Ellie is around 5 years old and loves to make new dog friends! We foster & dog-sit often and she's always been friendly and totally non-aggressive with any new pal who stays with us. The cats are generally fine around dogs, but let us know upfront if your pet tends to chase small animals. Puppies and larger or more active breeds are likely not a good fit (sorry, terrier owners!)

We are members of Zipcar and Car2Go, so we can transport your dog in case of emergency, and may be able to arrange pick-up/dropoff in Brooklyn for an additional fee.

We're more than happy to answer any questions, work out custom arrangements or set up a meet-and-greet - just message us. We look forward to giving you and your pup a great vacay!

Kate and Paul were wonderful doggie hosts! They were very patient and understanding with my standoffish pup, treating him with love until he warmed up to them. He came home with his eyes smiling and tail wagging. I definitely recommend!
Lilly had a great time and she came back super happy! When I first booked Kate, she was more than happy to open her home to Lilly and I so we could visit. After meeting Kate and her boyfriend she immediately putt me at ease and Lilly was immediately comfortable with them their dog and their home. They have a nice house and great backyard for Lilly to cruise around.Also she was so flexible with a pretty much last minute RSVP.

Kate sent me a picture update which was nice during a business trip. They very wonderful down to earth people who were so flexible with drop off and pick up times. They were accommodating in every way...I was flying in from a business trip so I did ask her if I was late would they mind me picking her a up a little later or worse case scenario the next day...they happily agreed and were so wonderful about it-so if I was late I didn't have to worry about Lilly. Kate always responds within a few hours or less!!!

I am so glad Lilly and I met Kate and would trust her completely to watch my Lilly again.

I would highly recommend them to anyone!
