About Katherine

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I live with one rescued dog and 5 rescued cats in a house with a fenced in back yard. (For 4 years I volunteered at the Brooklyn Animal Shelter, and that is where all my cats are from). In the fall of 2014 for 3 months, I fostered two dogs for a homeless woman. I enjoyed the experience so much, I decided to open my home to more dogs.

Boarding fees: There is a $25 charge for the first 24 hours. I am happy to have your dog longer than 24 hours, but after the first 3 hours, I will charge you a day care fee of $20.

Holiday fee: For Thanksgiving and Christmas, I will be charging an additional $5 a day.

Katherine is great! Our dog always has a good time when he stays with her. She takes time to send little updates during the DogVacay too letting us know how everything is going.
Katherine was great and definitely put our minds at ease while we were away for the weekend. She has a true passion for animals. We will definitely continue to have Katherine care for our cats while we are away on other trips!
Tucker really seemed to enjoy his stay with Katherine. She sent pictures and communicated with us daily and he looked so cozy and happy, lounging on the couch or a dog bed. I will definitely book with her again, and would encourage anyone to do the same!
Katherine is a lovely pet host. She has a real heart for dogs and took great care of our little buddy. Very happy with his reservation and time with Katherine.
Wouldn't take my pup to anyone else! Thanks Katherine!
Bailey and Katherine are excellent hosts. Our little Peanut prefers "vacay" to home, and we're booking again simply for the fun of it. Bailey's a sweetie and fun to play with!
This was our first time ever using DogVacay, and we will absolutely be doing so again! Katherine was a sublime host for our Valerie while we were gone. She made sure to keep me updated every day on how she was doing, and sent pictures along. Valerie loved having a playmate in the homestead--her and the resident dog became fast friends. You can tell that Katherine has worked with and loves animals immensely; I've already started recommending both her and this service to fellow doggy parents!
She was absolutely wonderful, I texted her seveal times and always received a response. She even gave my boy a cute little bandana for thanksgiving. I will definitely use her service again!
Kathy is a great sitter! Brutus loves going to stay with her. I loved seeing pictures of them outside and after they had been on a long walk. Thank you so much! It's nice to know that Brutus is in good hands!
Katherine was wonderful! She has an affection for animals that shows in the way she cares for her guests. Jasper had a great time and we will definitely use her services again! Thanks!
I think Bob had a great time on his stay with Katherine and Bailey! She sent me texts with pic updates of Bob which made me feel really good while he was in her care. I will definitely be using Katherine again. Thanks so much! :)
Katherine was absolutely great with my dog, Bailey! Our pups got along so well, and Katherine was super attentive. Lots of texts of photos so that I knew my pup was having a great time. Thank you, Katherine. It is so evident in your practice how much you care for animals. I will definitely book again! :)
Katherine and her pets were great, she was very friendly and flexible with our scheduling needs and we look forward to having our pup stay with her again.
Katherine was very accommodating with anything I needed for Pepper. She made us both comfortable, which allowed me to concentrate on my medical problem. I would easily recommend Katherine to anyone who needs care for there dog.
Katherine was fantastic, she was welcoming and willing to answer all questions. Her daily pictures and comments were wonderful and much appreciated. She is patient and likely brings a calming presence for the dogs. Lola seemed to love her time with Katherine and Bailey. Will definitely recommend.
Katherine was a great host for Mikko. She really helped me out at the last minute after a different host fell through. Mikko was happy and comfy in her home.
Katherine was very friendly and great with our dog. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for dog vacay in Cleveland. Thanks so much
Our experience with Katherine was all-around excellent. She was kind, professional, and responsive, and she clearly cared for our dog, Sophie, very well. Katherine was more than happy to accommodate Sophie's medications and take her out as she needed. I would highly recommend Katherine!
Excellent care for my German Shepherd while I was on vacation. Many walks and play time with other dogs. Thanks for the daily pictures.
Katherine provided a report each time she visited Skipper. She did a very good job of making sure I was aware of skipper's condition at each visit. She will be first on my list of dog sitters when I have to leave skipper for an extended period.
Katherine is very accomodating. Our dog, Noah always seems to have plenty do to and is able to get plenty of excercise in her fenced yard. It is a relief knowing the Katherine takes such great care of him during the day.
Katherine has cared for my Peanut several times on DogVacay and it is always a delight. Peanut adores the host dog, Bailey, and she makes new friends all the time with the various guest dogs.

Peanut is a little dog. Katherine consistently arranges things so she's safe around the larger dogs in the house.

Katherine is invariably conscientious, thoughtful, and trustworthy.
Katherine was wonderful! We were in a last second bind, late with no kennels open, and she responded within two minutes. And since it was our first dog Vacay experience, of course we were a little hesitant, but she relieved all our worries with how caring and thorough she was. Great experience!
My dog Charlie was happy after his six-day stay with Katherine, her dog and cats and two other boarded pets for part of that time. She really has a way with animals.
Katherine was great! I could tell my pup loved her and I would definitely go back :)
Buster loved his little staycation he had with Katherine! She was very flexible and very good with him. She met with us prior to leaving for our trip just to meet Buster and get to know where things were in our house. She also sent pictures each time she checked in with him. He can't wait for his next vacay!
Katherine loves dogs. I felt comfortable right away. My dog isn't the best at separation and Katherine did a nice job helping me and my nervous dog Lily. I recommend Katherine especially if you are okay with a couple of playmates for your pet.
Kathrine is wonderful!! She kept us updated on everything. Our dog had an opportunity to play with other dogs and have a great time. Bailey(Katherine's dog ) is just the sweetest dog, and made our dog feel welcomed in her home. After our greet and meet I felt that Kathrine would have the best interest in our dog! Thanks Kathrine ! we will call you soon!
Katherine watched my pooch Boris for a 5 day vacation and he was soo happy with her! She kept me updated at perfect times and couldn't have been a better match for me and my dog! Will absolutely book Katherine again in the future and highly recommend her!!
Katherine was great. She took Edith on very late notice. Katherine was very responsive via e-mail and Edith had a very good time
Peanut had SO MUCH FUN at "Bailey's House" that she slept twelve straight hours afterwards. Bailey is a sweetie, very easy to get along with, and clearly an engaging host dog.

Katherine was thoughtful and well prepared. Her home is comfortable for a little dog too. Peanut will definitely be returning to Bailey's House again.
Katherine provided daily updates with photographs of Brutus. She was very available via phone/text. I could tell my dog was very fond of her as well. She had several dogs to help socialize my dog, and a fenced in area in the back to secure my dog.

Brutus was very happy to see me but I could tell he had also bonded w/ Katherine. I'll definitely be a repeat customer. Thanks!
Katherine is so awesome with our puppy Muffin, she takes such good care of her and sends updates, I would highly reccomend her!!!
Dixie loved her visit with Katherine and her new dog friend Bailey! We received happy pictures of Dixie having fun on her vacation which really helped us relax and enjoy our trip! Thanks, Katherine and thanks, Dogvacay!!
Katherine saved us last minute. We had two young (in their 20's) adults who either bailed or failed to communicate / respond to our expectations, and obviously we could not trust either. We had 3 days prior to leaving town, and we were so fortunate to have found Katherine through dogvacay - she stayed in our home with our two standard poodles.
Her rates are so reasonable for what she offers - overnight stays, and she walked our dogs 3-4 times a day. She truly enjoyed "working" with our dogs, and I am going to refer her to friends and acquaintances. She is dedicated, trustworthy, reliable, with a can-do attitude, and gives more than expected. She was honest, so honest - and, I must add, she had her best friend coming in from England for a few days, and she still was able to make it work.

Katherine sent photos everyday, and our dogs were so happy and relaxed. She reported them eating more (due to more exercise she gave them and the dogs were so happy, usually they don't each much when we leave because they are afraid).

I feel a lot of pet sitters are out there, and act they are doing us a favor by watching our dogs, even if our pups are let out for 30 minutes. They make it more "business dealing" than fun, and this job should be fun.

I cannot commend or give anyone higher honors than Katherine. She is definitely our go-to #1 pet sitter!!
We were out of town for 10 days during the Christmas holidays. Katherine was amazing with her ‚̧loving. ways. They were walked once to twice a day, played with and snuggled before bedtime. Texts were sent daily and I asked her to keep a daily log. Our pups were cared for in our home since our dogs don't do well with strange surrounding or opening up to other dogs. Definitely, KATHERINE CLARK is now a special part of our family.
Katherine was fantastic. My dog seems to have enjoyed himself. I would definitely recommend her and will use her service again!
