About Kathy ( Kate is my nickname )

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm a dog lover and grew up on a farm in Wall Township surrounded by them. Your pup would get excellent over night or day care , visit's at your home if you live in town. We would go for a walk early in the morning on the boardwalk for starts and again later in the day after the sun starts to set during summer month's . Winter a full run of the beach . Which ever season your dog would be spoiled and have access to potty breaks in the grass , walk around the neighborhood on the sidewalk's , dog beach run's and if up to it a few miles of a walk a day. Senior dog ? Not a problem except I do live up on a third floor with no elevator , so keep that in mind please . The apartment is airy , light , good vibes . I'm an artist and would mostly hang inside when not walking under huge ceiling fans painting , maybe even a portrait of your dog . I do require your dog to be housebroken , they will get plenty of walks and potty breaks , however we need to be honest on that subject , thank you . The house smells great and is clean want to keep it that way. Thank you and looking forward to spending time with your pup!

Great experience! Kate was highly responsive and very accommodating of my schedule. Sent me updates and pictures during the visit. I'd definitely book again!
Iris's stay with Kate was excellent. She welcomed Iris into her relaxing and quiet home where Iris felt right at home and got plenty of walks on the boardwalk and beach. Would definitely use Kate again.
Kathy was extremely understanding of my situation when I needed to make last minute accommodations for Yong Gi. She was willing to pick him up to ensure that he arrived safely and comfortably, I really appreciated that. She was great at updating me during her time with Yong Gi and gave me great pictures during his stay. I felt really confident in her care, especially given that I had to leave Yong Gi with her without any formal meetings or interviews prior to. I greatly appreciated her time, effort and care for Yong Gi and I'll definitely use her the next time Yong Gi needs a place to stay!
Kate was wonderful with my dog, Sadie! She spent lots of time with her, daily walks on the boardwalk & beach (which my dog simply loves), so I couldn't ask for better care. I knew Sadie really enjoyed her time with Kate when she was crying in the car, watching Kate walk away when we were leaving. That's a sign of a great pet sitter! :)
From the moment I met Kathy I felt totally comfortable leaving Chavo overnight. Kathy kept me updated with photos and emails about how Chavo was doing. When I picked him up the next day he was very comfortable and relaxed and actually when we were set to leave, he kind of tugged at his leash like he wanted to stay! Definitely an A-1 pet sitter!
Kate was awesome!!!! My dogs loved her! She is a sweet-heart! Kind, warm and compassionate, and trustworthy. Kate went above and beyond her job description. Kate doesn't just come in and let your dogs out and then leaves... Kate stays and forms a relationship with your pet. Truly a dog-lover-animal lover. I think my dogs actually miss her! In the past I have always used a kennel to board my dogs...I thought I would try using a dog-sitter based on past negative experiences at a kennel....because of Kate, my dogs were not stressed out, were treated wonderfully, had no kennel related illness, ate and slept well....I can't say enough kind things about Kate...she truly is the best. I would highly recommend Kate!
We are so lucky we found Kate. She and Fiona took such good care of Brutus overnight while we were visiting Asbury Park. They were flexible with timing and met us at the local Yappy Hour, then kept us updated with photos and text. We'll definitely be booking with Kate next time we are back in Asbury!
Kate was an absolutely wonderful host to my 2.5 year old golden retriever. Throughout the weekend I received many written and picture updates, which were so very appreciated. I returned to pick my dog up and found her very happy, very well taken care of, and very tired from a weekend playing at the beach! I highly recommend Kate!
Kate and Fiona worked like Trojans to keep Bear out and about and entertained and loved during a hot (outdoor temperature-wise. Mid 90s) 24 hours! Their 3/F walk up apartment has no A/C but does have fans, so they were vigilant about keeping Bear cool. He had a glorious time with them. They live 2 blocks from the beach dog park, and in a lovely neighborhood of shady streets and lawns.
Dogs well cared for. Thank you.
Kate is great!! Choco was so stoked to visit her everyday, they became fast friends! She's amazing and incredibly reliable. Anytime I need a sitter, she will be my go to
Kathy was accommodating and put a lot of effort into tiring out Mason over the weekend. He especially enjoyed a few visits to the dog beach in Asbury!
Kathy was wonderful and caring that I hate to tell you great she was because then everyone will use her and I want her for my dog :). Seriously Kathy was fantastic and she is now my dog sitter in future!
Kate was absolutely fantastic. Took amazing care of my dog, gave constant updates, and took time to bring the dog to me for some hang out time. Kate has a great understanding of training, love, and discipline for dogs and I eagerly look forward to having Jones stay with her again.

Superb host, I'd give 6 stars if I could.
