About Katie

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We love our 4-legged family members, and always look forward to welcoming another into our home!

Over the years, we've had several doggie house guests for weekends or extended trips of 2 weeks or more. We have experience with small dogs as well as larger breeds such as German Shepherds. Our two small dogs (Leo the pug and Skippy the mini-Shiba Inu) love playing with dogs of all sizes and breeds. When the weather allows, we take the dogs for walks in the foothills or on the greenbelt.

We have a securely fenced backyard, and the dogs will always be supervised while outside. If you have a jumper, please let us know ahead of time! We work full time Monday through Friday, but we're only a mile away so we always come home during the lunch hour to let the dogs out and possibly take them for a walk. Our house has a small dog door leading to the backyard, and if we feel comfortable with your dog using it while we're away we'll leave it open (that's up to you too!).

Your dog would sleep wherever you prefer. Our dogs sleep on the bed at night, and yours is welcome to do that too. We don't crate our dogs, but if yours is used to that we can use it.

If your dog is aggressive when it comes to food, we will separate the dogs during meal time. Sometimes our pug gets greedy and tries to steal from the other dogs, so we typically feed him in a different room from the others just to be safe.

We've never encountered a dog that Leo and Skippy didn't get along with. They typically will play with a new dog at our house for about 30 minutes, then relax again.

Katie was amazing! When we picked my dog up after vacation, he looked sad to leave!

She sent us photo updates of him while we were gone, and was very flexible with us as our plane got delayed. We couldn't have been happier with her work! I highly recommend Katie and will absolutely take my dog here the next time we go our of town.

Katie was very helpful in watching my 5 month old puppy while I was traveling for work. He came back happy and healthy. Thanks Katie!
Katie was a great host to my two dogs. I would call on her again when I need a reservation.
