About Kathryn

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
About Me:
I am a 22 year old student who works part time at a local YMCA. Working here allows me to have a very flexible schedule to accommodate your needs! Whether it is a day trip that you are taking or a long vacation, your dog or dogs will be in safe hands! I have a love for all animals and have had a dog of my own for 5 years. I also am very involved in volunteering with the LCC Comfort Dogs. These are dogs that are used to bring comfort to people in need including but not limited to nursing homes, hospitals, recovery homes, hospice, and tragedy locations such as Sandy Hook, Baton Rouge, Dallas, TX, and many more.

My Style:
Your rules are my rules when it comes to your home. When dog sitting, I will care for the dogs as you wish so my style is your style! Whether this means taking your dog to the park every day, or spending the day lounging around together, I am up for it! There is never a dog that I have not been able to get along with. When I am not working or in school, I will be at your house spending as much time with your dog as I possibly can.

Kathryn is a kind, caring and empathetic petsitter! I have two dogs, one of which, Buddy, has a lot of anxiety when his routine isn’t followed. When both dogs first met Kathryn they immediately liked her and were completely at ease. Kathryn will often text me how they are when she comes she comes to visit. Most recently, Kathryn came in for a scheduled visit and Buddy had ripped up a throw pillow and some other items to make a mess. Not only did Kathryn clean up the mess and soothe Buddy, she also came back a couple of unscheduled times to make sure he was fine. Kathryn is the best!

There for us when we need her!
Reliable, as always!
This is the first time we have EVER hired a dog walker. Kathryn came for a meet and greet the other day, and I immediately felt at ease once I met her. It's not easy to trust someone with your new puppy, let alone keys to your house. She even spent more than the allotted time with our pup.
Kathryn was lovely. We were so worried about our babies but were assured that they were having a great time and well taken care of. And when my husband and I got back from our honeymoon our dogs and house were immaculate!
Kathryn was an awesome sitter for our long weekend. Super responsive and took wonderful care of Jameson. I don't think he even noticed we left. She went above and beyond to make sure the house was in order and he received wonderful care/attention.
Kathryn was wonderful with my 2 dogs. She is calm and gentle, communicates well and took care of all my dogs' needs. We will definitely be calling her again.
This was our second overnight and third Vacay with Kathryn. The excited reception our dog gave her when she returned to pick up her bag said it all. The house and dog were both in great shape and we were grateful that Kathryn was willing to give our dog two different medications twice daily. Will definitely use her again.
Kathryn is fantastic! We were suppose to have a friend watch our pets and last minute they were not able too. So we were in a scramble to find a sitter for our pups. Kathryn had an opening and we interviewed her, she was so polite and I instantly felt comfortable with her. She took great care of our pups while we were gone. She even got our dog who never eats when we're away to eat the entire time, so clearly our pups felt happy with her too. She's great with communicating with you while your away. We are very very happy with her, and would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a sitter. We already place to use her for our trip.
Kathryn has cared for my little guy a few times now, and I must say she is excellent! She has taken really wonderful care of him and he is crazy about her. She came into a challenging situation with him the first time she stayed for a week of overnights and handled it masterfully. I highly recommend her!
Kathryn stayed at our house for one night to watch our 2 dogs (and feed cats as well). She was wonderful. Would definitely use her again!! Thank you Kathryn!
Kathryn was very responsive from the initial inquiry and able to meet us for a meet & greet before our first "daycare" visit. Jameson clearly loved her upon first meeting! We look forward to using her in the future. So happy to have found her.
Kathryn is reliable and dependable. We requested her assistance quite close to our vacation date as our prior plans fell through. She was able to come by for a meet and greet and also came back for review. She was able to take great care of our 2 dogs and 2 parrots staying at our home while we were away. They can often be a handful. Everything went perfectly! Peace of mind is essential for a relaxing vacation. There will be no hesitation in requesting her skills again in the near future. Thank you so much Kathryn!!
Kathryn was great she kept in constant contact with me and my boys with texts and photos. I will definitely contact Kathryn should we be on vacation again A+
Kathryn was very responsive to our initial inquiries and actually scheduled two meet and greets to help our dog get accustomed to her before the big 10-night stay. We got three updates while we were away and when we returned the house was in perfect order and our dog seemed happy and content. This says a lot considering that our dog is a senior dog who has some separation anxiety and while we were gone there were record low temps in addition to snow and rain. We will definitely consider using her again.
Kathryn is very prompt in answering my queries and have provided us as requested. The dogs didnt seem to miss us a lot when we got home. She is very reliable and trust worthy. Thanks again for caring for tikka and kemba.
WOW - We can't say enough wonderful things about Kathryn! She is so amazing with animals, so responsible, so loving. She took care of our two dogs like they were her own. Kathryn sent us detailed daily updates and ensured they were happy and healthy while we were away. I recommend her wholeheartedly - I couldn't imagine a better caretaker for our pets!
My dog seemed very happy during her hours with Kathryn. We already booked her for a multi-night stay! Kathryn was on time, prepared and her references were excellent, too.
Kathryn is awesome!!! She watched our dog for a weekend in our home and we could not have been happier with her services! We are so happy we found her :)))
