This was the best decision I have ever made for my dog, Messy. Kathi and her husband were awesome, very caring and attentive. Getting a picture update each morning put me at such ease during my travels. I recommend Kathi to anyone with a sweet dog who needs the highest quality care.
Based on the profile and reviews on Dog Vacay, we had high hopes that using Kathi was just the right thing to do during our visit to Corning. Our expectations were exceeded! Kathi and her husband provided just what our Coton needed and were very flexible regarding drop off and pick up times - both of which were very, very important to us. If you need a mellow and loving home for the day for your dog, do not hesitate at all to use Kathi.
Kathi, Thank you so much for taking care of Daisy. You are a very caring person and I would have you take care of her anytime in the future. You made sure she was well taken care even when she didn't want to eat. The pictures you sent let us see her while we were away and allowed us to enjoy our time away.
Kathi and her husband, John were great. We were in the area visiting. We were very pleased to find them and they worked with us on fairly short notice. You can tell they enjoy dogs and they were very good with our little Ellee. Thanks for your great care and I would surely use them if we visit again.
Kathi was very open and flexible to receiving my big baby. He seemed to get along with her dogs and the small one she was also babysitting. She took him for a walk and gave him lots of attention. Overall, very pleased with the experience.
Kathi did a wonderful job with our dog. She was well cared for and we received numerous updates and photos during our vacation. Highly recommend using Kathi as your dog sitter!
Kathi was just amazing with our dog. She is very attentive to his needs and she is a very sweet person. We highly recommend her for your dogs needs. She will love your dog like her own. We can't thank her enough for taking our Precious while we got married. Thank you so much Kathi. You are the BEST!!!
Kathi and her husband were wonderful. They are both lovely, nice people. Kathi texted me with pictures and updates during my dog's stay. It was obvious how care they put into making my dog feel welcome. He was well taken care of.Their two dog are well behaved and friendly. I highly recommend Kathi and would use her again.
Kathi and her husband were fantastic! We had to make a reservation on very short notice. We communicated prior to official booking and they were able to take our pup in for the long weekend. They made sure he was entertained, comfortable and happy. He was excited to come home, but exhausted from all the fun and loving he received from Kathi and her family. Thank you for making our first DogVacay experience a great one! We'll definitely be reaching out to you in the future when we need a sitter!
Kathi was fabulous! Her and her husband made themselves available in case I had any questions. Kathi provided updates on how everything was going with Stanley, my very large Rhodesian Ridgeback. She was warm and receptive, certainly making Stanley's stay more comfortable.

I plan to use her services again.
Kathi was great! We met with her a few months in advance and knew right away that we could be at ease leaving our pet with her. She is very caring and treated our dog as if it were her own. Kathi sent us daily updates and photos to let us know that she was in good hands. Her dogs were very welcoming too! I think Shelby was sad to leave! We highly recommend, she's wonderful...thanks Kathi!!
Kathi was a wonderful sitter for our two pups, Luna and Lyla! I would gladly recommend her to anyone looking for a home away from home for their pets. She is also very conveniently located near the Elmira Airport, which was an added plus.
Kathi H and her husband and her own two dogs were so welcoming to our two cocker spaniels! It was a pleasure meeting them and we felt so comfortable leave them there for the evening. They treated our dogs like they were their own. When we came back we found our older dog Biscuit snoozing on the family room couch! We could not have asked for a better dog sitting experience!
Kathi was a wonderful sitter for our dog Charlie! I was really nervous about leaving him with someone new because of his history with separation anxiety, but he came home to us relaxed and very well taken care of. We are so happy to have met Kathi and look forward to leaving Charlie in her kind hands again!
Very patient with my dog. Lots of attention and her dogs were great playmates for Roxie. Great stay.
Kathi (and her hisband) were Outstanding - I highly recommend.

I was very stressed and needing dog sitting immediately. I was so nervous to simply leave my boyz someplace unfamilar - but with a beautiful home and yard in a lovely neighborhood - Trooper ran inside as soon as she opened the door. Kathi also sent me an update email after the first night letting me know Toby abd Trooper were doing great, had been on walks and love sitting on their laps.

I am so thankful to find such a caring and loving home while I took care of a family emergency.
