About Catherine

9 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there!

My name is Catherine and I love all types of puppies! I grew up with a shih tzu-bichon mix but had to leave her with my parents when I moved away for school. Now that I have more free time, I'm able to provide care and play time for all types of dogs! While I live in the city, I have a private roof-deck and a large open layout apartment with two levels. There are plenty of green areas and dog parks in the area as well as the Art Museum trails just a few blocks away.

Between my roommate and me, one of us is always home. We're both huge dog lovers and are excited to share our time with a fellow dog lover. The only restriction we have is large dogs over 80 lbs - they are unfortunately too big for us (sorry we wish our home was suited for big pups too!). I only ask that your furry friend is potty trained and up to date on vaccinations.

Your dog will have free roam of my home and, depending on weather, we can hang out together on the fenced roof deck as well. I will be able to spoil your pups with love, attention and cuddles while you're away. I am very flexible and can work with your schedule if you need someone to walk your dog or provide some supervision during the say too.

If you have any questions, feel free to message me and I'll be sure to get back to you within a few short hours!

Thanks,
Catherine

Kaska took care of my native American Indian dog/ German Shepard mix for 2 weeks. They are usually a tough breed to take care of since they are so independent minded and don't take well to not having enough space to roam and play. She did an excellent job and made sure she was walked, fed and played with 2-3 times a day in addition to always keeping me in the loop with my dog. I would hire her again in a second the next time I am going out of town. She was a pleasure to work with and is extremely reliable.

I've known Kaska for a few years now and have had the pleasure of living with her for the second time now. She's an energetic soul that exudes positivity. She's a hard worker and puts her all into everything she does. Her love for animals and her outgoing personality is all a dog could dream of! She's certainly someone you can count on.
