About Katie

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I moved to Austin 3 years ago. I also travel home from time to time and have discovered boarding is very expensive and not the comforting atmosphere of home. I've decided I would like to do the same for other people and their dogs. I know how nerve-wracking it is to leave your little one(s) behind. I am off Tuesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Everyday I am at work I come home an hour for lunch to let the dogs out. I'll keep you updated on how your dogs are doing and send pictures of them throughout their stay.
I live off Wells Branch Pkwy in North Austin and have many long trails just a short jog away. There are also dogs parks near by to visit as well. I do something just about everyday to keep them entertained and have lots of attention.
I have one small dog named Rondo-a 42 lb. beagle mix-He's very friendly and well-trained; he is good with other dogs, shy at first then very playful. He has all his current shots and is on flea and heartworm prevention monthly. I don't have any children. I am responsive and caring, and I am happy to take care of your little loved one while your gone.
**All dogs must be current on: vaccinations, heartworm medicine, flea and tick medicine, and (preferably) bordatella shots. Please confirm with me that your dog is up-to-date on all of his or her healthcare needs. You do not need to bring copies of the records- it's just helpful to hear that everything is up-to-date.**
I am very relaxed in that I allow them on the couch, bed, etc. to feel at home as much as possible, so if your pet is not, I will follow that and any other rules that you hold in your home. If you are trying to train your dog to learn a certain word or command, just let me know and we can work on it with him or her during the stay. As well as any medication or specific food needed, I can accommodate and administer during their stay.

Katie was awesome!! I got pics of my pup over the weekend and my pup seemed very at ease with her and was looking great when I picked her up from Katie. We were also a couple hours behind schedule and Katie was gracious enough to still watch her until we got there without any issues. I would definitely book another vacay with Katie again in the future.
Absolutely the best. I've had others watch my pets before and never had one want to stay. My girl was torn between coming home or have an extended stay. She loved it. Katie was great. Awesome communication.
