About Kathy

24 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Needed: your dog to accept love, head & neck scratches and massages from me! My husband and I owned a Wild Birds Unlimited franchise and were lucky to be able to take our dogs to work. Our dogs have since passed and now that we are "retired", I would love to have one-on-one dog time with your pup. We have no other pets, so your baby will get 24/7 care and our full attention. We have a $5 up charge for a puppy.

We live just off the interstate and are easy to find. Our large deck is gated and very shaded. Perfect for lounging and enjoying the breeze. Our side yard is open so your dog will be on lead at all times for walks and playtime.

Inside, we have four couches available for your dog(s) to stretch out on and feel at home. Beds are not off limits either! There are sidewalks in our neighborhood, a bike/walking path that is nearby and a park one half mile from our house.

I always loved seeing what my dogs were doing while we were away, so you will get photos/videos if needed. The closest vet is about a mile away and there is an after-hours, emergency animal hospital in Collinsville, 4 miles from our house.

Your dog will be treated like one of our family at our home. Please let me share my love with them! Contact me for a meet-n-greet or any questions.

Short answer: you cannot get a better dog sitter, Kathy was great.
Long: This was first time we had an overnight sitter for our two 7 year old Shih Tsus. In fact it was 9 nights and naturally we were a bit anxious. Kathy and our dogs got along Shih Tsus. In fact it was 9 nights and naturally we were a bit anxious. Kathy and our dogs got along great. Kathy also sent photos each day while we were on vacation (which was as important as our vacation activities). Great job of taking care of our dogs.

Kathy and Pat are the best friends a dog can ask for. They have kept our 2 senior labs on several occasions over the past year including a few extended stays of 7 to 10 days. They provide love, attention, exercise and compassion to our pups' wants extended stays of 7 to 10 days. They provide love, attention, exercise and compassion to our pups' wants and needs as well as sensitivity to their different quirks and personalities. We've felt a strong sense of trust and security with Kathy and Pat since our first meet and greet. We are moving away from the area soon and they will be deeply missed by all 4 of us! They are the best!

Kathy is absolutely amazing! Because she has sat for my dogs now several times, she knows their needs and personalities so well. She is always so calm with them and spoils them as if they were her own. I feel so comfortable leaving them with her calm with them and spoils them as if they were her own. I feel so comfortable leaving them with her any time, which allows me to have fun while I'm away. She's the best!!!
