About Cathy

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
TENDER LOVING CARE FOR YOUR PET, PEACE OF MIND FOR YOU

Please try to schedule early, I am filling up fast especially around the Holidays.

CPR and first aid certified - Large fenced in Yard - minimum of three walks a day. Plenty of love, fun, cuddles, and supervision.

Check out free offerings below

I know you love your pet and want the very best for it at all times. That is why I do much more than just providing food, water, and shelter. I have a genuine love for my furry friends. I am committed to giving them the best experience possible.

I am home all day and customize my care for each and every dog according to their needs, personality, and whatever routine they are used to.

Each one of my furry friends gets one on one attention from me every day. We have play time in the yard and cuddle time in my home. I also stimulate their mind with fun games, which is just as important as physical exercise.

Just like people sometimes a pup wants some alone time. I am sensitive to that and make sure they get their space if needed. Each room can be blocked off for a single pup or they can hang out on my bed if they prefer. I also have a section of the yard gated off for that purpose as well.

Our Bilbo had fun at Cathy's Stay and Play. He ran right up to the house, when we arrived. Esther M
My dog Charlie Brown stayed with Cathy for two nights while I was away at my wedding weekend. Cathy was so wonderful and accommodating during Charlie's stay. Charlie Brown gets seizures and Cathy was confident and attentive to all of Charlie's unique needs. She sent us pictures during the weekend and it looked like Charlie had a wonderful time. We will definitely be using Cathy again in the future.

My dog visited Cathy M and although he is very reserved dog in general, was super comfortable with her and the surrounding home and other dogs. He stayed a week and she sent pictures almost everyday. He seemed happy during his stay and when I picked him up to go home he was still his happy self. Happy to see me but also happy from his week. I would totally use Cathy M again.

We dropped off our Cooki (Pet's Name) for few hours and he got along well with other dogs.

The place is excellent - with fenced backyard with lots of shade outside for the dogs to hang around but not exposed to hot sun.

The care given by Cathy was excellent. She regularly updated me with photo and text. She is pretty quick with text.

Would certainly go back and highly recommend.

Harry and Daisy had a wonderful stay at Cathy's play and stay! I could tell they had the best trip because they both looked happy and exhausted when we picked them up. Cathy is attentive and makes sure that the dogs are cared for as if they were her own. She even made delicious dog cookies to take home and our dogs both loved them so! We will definitely continue to trust Cathy with our dogs from here on out!

Cathy was great sitter for our dog, Rex. Rex is usually very nervous in new environments but quickly became comfortable at Cathy's home. She kept us well informed with pics and messages. It was a great experience.
My dog stayed with Cathy for a half day prior to an overnight stay. This was a good opportunity for him to get to know her and to get use to a new environment. All went well and we booked his stay knowing he would be well taken care of.
It was great
It was first time I was trying setter. But to my surprise Moose really enjoyed his stay with Caty. I am happy with it Will definitely bring him again soon Thanks Sheetal
This was my dog Astro's 2nd half day visit to Cathy's house.She took good care of him and sent me updates . Astro had fun playing with other dogs and in the doggie pool. I will surely be sending him again.
I would definitely recommend Cathy as a great host. Our two dogs stayed with Cathy for 8 days while we were out of the country. Everything was excellent. Cathy kept us updated with photos which is always very appreciated. She was very easy to coordinate with in regards to drop off and pick up, and she was even kind enough to leave us with homemade dog treats! We look forward to the next time we leave our "kids" with Cathy as they came home very happy and tired from lots of play and fun with the other pups.

I think Hanna had a great time!! Thank you for the homemade treats.. Hanna loves them.i will definitely be using you this summer..
We screened many pet sitters before leaving our two dogs with Cathy. She is among the best in the business and provides a loving, peaceful, and calm environment for them. One of our girls has some health issues and Cathy took care of her just like I would myself. She is home most of the day so our dogs were well looked after.
Cathy kept me updated on their stay with pictures and text updates and was fantastic with all the communications to organize the stay.
She also has a wonderful fenced back yard for the dogs to play and enjoy the outdoors. Cathy and her family really love dogs and welcome them as one of the family. I really appreciate how Carhy made a normally stressful experience for my dogs a nurturing, fun time.
We are so happy to find someone we trust so that we can enjoy our trips without worrying about our girls.

Cathy was great with my fur babies! Both of them have their own "issues" and needed meds during their stay with her and she took care of them like they were her own! She has a fenced yard which was important to me because it gave them freedom to run around. Also they were able to play with other dogs so it was truly a doggy Vacay for them. They also love the homemade treats she made them! Will take them to her home again.

Cathy did a wonderful job of taking care of Bella. She is very through and kept me updated with Bella's care.
I feel like we were really blessed finding Cathy! Our Tazy's accustomed to lots of attention and is a little on the timid side with other dogs. Tazy took to Pepper immediately and was so relaxed when we picked her up at Cathy's we could tell she had a great time, which we already knew because Cathy had sent updates and pictures the whole time we were away. Cathy even made a frozen doggy cake using water and low-sodium chicken broth with carrots and dog toys frozen into it!! It made our vacation so much more pleasant not feeling guilty for leaving Tazy at a kennel and knowing she was getting not only great care but love and affection too! Cathy's a dog-lover and enjoyed Tazy's snuggling and hugs, and so when Cathy described that to us, we knew firsthand Tazy had found the perfect home-away-from-home. She's getting one of Cathy's homemade healthy treats for dessert tonight, and I'm sure she's wondering when she'll get to go back!

Cathy is wonderful! I had a last minute pet-sitting request which she accommodated. I just had to drop my pup at her house. Mocha was really happy when I came to take him back. He was fed as per his schedule and had walks per his schedule. Cathy's house has a backyard where mocha spent most of his afternoon so he didnt have to be cooped up in the crate. Overall my experience was wonderful with her. I would use her again.

My dog Kepler had a great time with Cathy and her family for twelve days and we enjoined pictures Kathy sent us everyday. Cathy took great care of Kepler and he loved staying at her place. We will certainly leave Kepler with her again in the future!
