About Kathy

28 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have been owned by a dog or two my entire life and love every minute of it. I currently am owned by 3 yorkies (1 who is 2 years old and one who is a year and a half and one who is still a puppy. Currently he is 4 months old.) who enjoy meeting new friends and are highly socialized.

Ana is the queen of the house and pretty much the lead playmate. She is into lots but loves her naps on the couch.

Riley is a rescue dog and came to use as a foster - yeah right. She never left. She follows Ana's lead but is starting to come into her own and I'm enjoying watching her personality grow and match up to who she is.

Boomer is a male for the moment and is scheduled to be neutered in a few weeks. He is full of puppy and loves to play and snuggle. He really jumps right in when it comes to meeting new dogs and takes his lead from his sisters. He's still learning though and so far as not had any problems with any new dog that has come to visit or stay with us.

When your dog comes to visit, they are treated as part of the family and have run of the house as well as my huge back yard. Since it's just my husband and myself who live here, there is lots of room to explore and sleep in this big house. Doggy beds (or crates) are optional as visitors tend to sleep in my bed with the other dogs.

There are lots of squirrels, birds and golfers are bark at and run the fence. I offer agility play as well as water play complete with wading pools and sprinklers.

Daily leash walks are a must and we have lots of quiet side-walked streets to explore. We are surrounded by a golf course which really cuts down on the traffic flow too.

Easy to find from either the parkway or Baily Cove, my house is easy accessible from anywhere in Huntsville or Jones Valley.

I also offer daily updates on your Facebook page, as well as to your cell. Videos and pictures are a way of life around her and all of my clients have enjoyed all the updates. I enjoy sending them, as I know what's it's like to be away from my pets wondering how they were doing.

We love guests!

She is the BEST EVER
Kathy was the perfect host for my 4-month old Max. He's not very used to being around other dogs and this was the perfect socialization opportunity. Her dogs are very friendly, playful, and potty-trained (something my pup needs help on)! He had no accidents when he come back home.

Kathy herself is VERY knowledgeable about raising dogs and gave me plenty of insight on Max's behavior, plus tips/tricks to help him during his puppy phase. I would definitely recommend her!

Kathy is absolutely wonderful! I have a 3 year old yorkie and a 2 month old morkie! When they came home they smelled like sweet vanilla. They were worn out from playing and I could tell Kathy worked with our little one on potty training because she didn't have any accidents when we got back home :)

I would only trust 3 people with my pups and Kathy is one of them! She took pictures and videos of the pups, administered medication to my yorkie, and put my mind at ease with all of my overbearing questions!

This visit was the first time I had used dog vacay and had such a great experience. I will certainly use Mrs. Kathy again!
