About Kate

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Our home is in a lovely, quiet, tree lined, safe neighborhood. It has a good size backyard with lots of shade. It has a cinder block wall all around. Safety is actually our first concern always. I work from home so your dog will never be left alone for more than a few minutes. I have been professionally hosting dogs for 10 years, and have owned one for over 20.
My son and I treat your dog just like we would want ours to be treated if we went away. We stick to your schedule, sleeping, eating and walking. Your dog will get so much love that he/she most likely will have more fun here than you can even imagine. That is why we call it 'Disneyland for Dogs'. We go the extra mile in caring for your dog. I am careful to contact you in the form you like as to the status of your dog daily. I find clients truly enjoy their get-a-ways resting assured that their dog is in good hands with us.
I also wanted to let you know that we do not take every request for booking. Proof of current vaccinations will be required before a meet and greet or booking. We are particular about safety and never take aggressive dogs. That is why we have so many repeat clients. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I truly want the best fit for you and your dog/dogs - hopefully that is here at Disneyland for Dogs!

footnote; Holidays and extra care with meds and special meals may be a little extra.

Kate is brilliant. My Charlie came home happy and well cared for. She is calm and has a sense of what works for both dog and owner. I would not hesitate to ask her to take him again
i have had the good fortune to have my dog stay with kate/dog vacay a number of times now, most recently in mid-november. i hope i am like every other pet parent, wanting the best possible arrangements for our furry family members. i am once again, so pleased with the care my dog received while with kate. i appreciate that kate lets me know what other dogs will be there, follows my requests with meals, and is in regular contact with photos and/or brief texts which go a long way in reassuring me and help me not miss him so much. my dog can't wait to get into her home which is always a great indicator-it's my dogs way giving his own review! kate had been recommended to me by another person who i knew was particular about where her dog stayed so i took it as a strong recommendation. my friend was right and i've never looked back. i have comfortably recommended kate to friends who are looking for pet care for their pups. thank you kate!!

Auggie had a very fun time with Kate and her family. Kate is extremely patient and understanding of your dogs behavior. She warmly welcomed Auggie the first day and was very sweet with his send off. She stays in touch with you daily with fun pics. I highly recommend scheduling a stay with host Kate.

Our dog, Abby, stayed with Kate for 9 days, and we could not have been more pleased with the whole experience. She is professional and obviously loves dogs. We loved the daily photo updates, and we definitely were able to enjoy our vacation more than usual without worrying about our dog. Kate's home is very dog friendly with a nice backyard, and Abby loved playing with the other dogs during her stay. When we returned, Abby was very relaxed and did not seem stressed out at all by her stay there. We are so glad we found Kate, and would recommend her without hesitation.`

My 11+ year old Lab was completely relaxed and at ease when I picked her up from a 2-night stay. I certainly intend to leave her with Kate again.
Kate was wonderful with my fur baby! This was the first time he had been away from me overnight, let alone 7 days and Kate was wonderful! She made him so comfortable, understood his clinginess and his play energy. Knowing he was in good hands and seeing him happy helped me have a truly stress free vacation!

Kate was such a great hostess to our goldendoodle, Scout. Scout loved the big backyard and had fun playing with the other dogs there. Kate sent us tons of photos and videos while we were away. We loved knowing that our fur baby was in good hands and we'd definitely have Kate watch her again.

Kate was very dog-friendly..that is great. Her home is very suitable for visiting doggies. I look forward to havi g her again sometime.
Kate is a very kind and loving dog sitter. She truly cares about her furry visitors and gives them great care. She is very thorough and follows special instructions well. Our dog was in good hands while she was there with her.
Kate is awesome!!! This is the second time we put our dog with Kate! I can tell Bruce is well taken care of and had a super wonderful time! Thanks Kate!!! ??
I wanted to say how much I really appreciate everything Kate did for our 4 year-old golden retriever, Spicey. She’s so great with him, and I love her daily photo updates!
There is nowhere better that Kate's house for a loving and fun environment for our girl. :)
Kate was great for our Izzy. He played with dog friends and got plenty of cuddles. An excellent experience.
Where do I begin? Kate is amazing! She treated our sweet Rocco like family. She was so thoughtful and sent me photos of him enjoying his time there. I was so relieved to find someone like Kate to take care of my dog. I am rather picky and our experience was stellar. We have new friend in Kate and our dog has a new home away from home.

My dog has a wonderful and fun time with Kate. She goes through every detail with me and send me pictures throughout the stay. Kate has such a kind spirit and she cares about the well being of the dog deeply. Thanks dogvacay that we can find Kate is my neighborhood. And I am sure that will contact her the next time we are out of town again!

We LOVE Kate!!
Riley had a great time at Kate's this weekend. Kate was really good about sending photos during his stay to let us know that Riley was having a good time.We also appreciate Kate's flexibility and responsiveness.
Emmet loved his time with Kate! We recommend letting your dog vacation here, while you are out of town!
Kate was awesome, as usual! Our 2 Westies fell right back into the routine and I believe, were disappointed to have to leave when we returned.
Kate sent little updates and some of the cutest pictures I have ever seen of our dogs while we were away.
She even gave them a quick bath before we arrived so they were nice and fresh when we brought them back home. The dogs were very happy and content-they too, enjoyed their vacation!!

I was looking for something different and more home like for my dog while I took a weekend vacation with family. This really was the perfect answer for me. My dog was in a nice home, was well cared for and had a couple dogs to play with. I received pictures of her each day which helped me be relaxed and enjoy my time with family. Kate was wonderful. She kept in contact and was flexible. I would definitely (and already have) recommend Kate to friends and DogVacay.

My Louie had the BEST vacation with Kate. She is wonderful and treated him like he was her own. He can't wait for his next visit!
Kate took great care of our dog when we went to vacation for a week. She sent us daily (more than one) updates with photo and video and we loved them. When he came home, he was happy and relaxed - we knew he was happy while we were gone.
I appreciated Kate's thoroughness in covering all areas of care, questions and answers during our "meet and greet." the health, safety and happiness of my dog is paramount to me so I asked lots of questions which Kate fielded with patience. once reservation was confirmed, there was good communication from Kate leading up to the date I dropped my dog off. Kate was great at sending texts and pics which helped me not miss my dog quite so much as well as helped me see him in the setting of his care, along with other dogs and her son. my dog seemed happy upon my arrival to be picked up; happy to see me but generally a happy demeanor which leads me to believe it was a positive experience for him. I would definitely call Kate again to care for my dog. the only reason(s) I haven't given 5 stars is because a. my dog can't talk to me to tell me everything that went on and b. 5 stars means "perfect" in my book and for the reason mentioned in "a.," that's tough to assess. thank you Kate!

Kate always takes wonderful care of our two dogs. We only leave them with her! I could not recommend her enough.
Kate always takes wonderful care of our two dogs. We only leave them with her! I could not recommend her enough.
I can truly relax and enjoy my vacation, because I know my pet is in good hands with Kate. He has so much fun, sometimes I think he doesn't want to come home...lol. I would recommend Kate to anyone of my friends and family. Thanks Kate for all the love and care you give to Kioki!

Perfect, as usual. Sophie loves her visits to Kate's house. Can't wait to go back!!!
This was our first time using Dogvacay and it was such a positive experience! Kate from Disneyland for Dogs is so sweet and caring. She loves dogs and it shows! She has a beautiful home and large yard for the dogs to play. Luna came home very happy and tired after all of the fun! I would highly recommend Kate and will definitely be reserving another time soon.

Kate always surpasses our expectations! Her upbeat infectious personality is simply amazing. Our dog, Champ feels the same way. He adores her, and always is excited to go stay with her.
Kate is just simply the best! She is definitely the best care taker of your beloved little fur ball. My guy is very particular and reluctant with others. Kate is the only exception to the rule.
She and her son provide non stop, 24 hour tender loving care. Exceptional care!

Kate is our dream dog sitter! When Kona is with Kate we have no worries at all. We know Kate loves and cares for our dog every bit as much as we do. When we ask our pup "do you want to go see Kate?" She jumps and wiggles with glee and runs to the door. That's the best vote of confidence ever!

Photos texted by Kate were a frequent reminder of Ripley's a fun-filled daily doings. Her love of dogs and consideration for dog owners - and overall joy - is much appreciated and sets the tone for a great DogVacay experience. Thanks again, Kate.
It doesn't get any better than Kate!! Truly!!
Kate is one of a kind, a true dog lover which is all you can possibly ask for when your little nugget is away from home. My little guy loves his "mama Kate" and is treated with such loving care. I never have to worry.

The best summer camp experience ever. Sophie loves her home away from home. Can't wait to go back!!!
Nothing ever but the best from Kate! My dog, Champ absolutely adores her.....and he is a bit on a finicky side :). She's incredibly loving and tuned into his personality.
Thanks so much to Kate (and her son) for taking such great care of Dozer, as always! The pictures she sent made my heart happy to see him every day, and the kisses Dozer gave her when I came to pick him up showed me just how much he loves her too. Thank you!!

Wow! Did Boomer have fun while he was at Disneyland for Dogs? Did he feel loved and safe? Did I feel as though I left my furbaby in excellent hands? Will Boomer be staying with Kate for more DogVacays in the future? Yes, yes, yes and YES!
From the meet-and-greet to picking Boomer up after an extended time away from each other (longer than two weeks), I felt confident that Kate understood my (sometimes crazy) dachshund and loved him despite his flaws. Boomer did not exhibit any post-separation anxiety behavior afterwards, so kudos to Kate for her excellent treatment of him. There were many updates and photos while we were gone which did much to ease any separation anxiety on our part. Thank you so much Kate! We will definitely book our future DogVacays with you!

Kate is wonderful with dogs --- specially with Beau !! Woofity woof woof. !!! Thank you Kate !
Kate knows my dog's behavior as well as I do. I never have to wonder if his needs are met. He has his own unique way of expressing what he wants, and boy oh boy does Kate know about every one of them. Her skill of acute observation gives me peace of mind. Priceless!

This is the second visit that our Old English Sheepdog, Bentley, has had with Kate L. This stay, like the first, was for two weeks. Kate once again did an amazing job with Bentley. Upon arriving to pick him up, he was clean & his coat of uber-hair looked wonderful, which is not an easy feat with an Old English Sheepdog. He is a magnet for burrs, debris, & everything, but Kate took incredible care of his grooming. Bentley is also a very fussy eater & likes to be "wined & dined" at his meals. Once again, Kate managed to deal with this & came through with flying colors!!

Kate also sent us periodic updates on Bentley, as well as numerous photos. This gesture gave us extreme peace of mind, knowing that our big boy was so well cared for. It is also very evident that Kate LOVES caring for dogs & has a genuine love for them. It is also a plus that Kate has a terrific teenage son, Jordan, who also has an affinity for dogs. All of this makes this dog vacay host a "win-win" for us & our dog, Bentley.

Cindy, John, & Bentley

Kate does far more than provide exceptional care for your dog. She actually loves your dog. Treating him/her with tender loving care. Jordan, her son extends the same amazing care. There is just no other provider that does this!
This was our second time leaving our dogs with Kate. It had been a couple months since the last visit, but both of our dogs remembered her immediately and were incredible happy to see her. They clearly had a wonderful weekend, and one of my dogs actually tried to go back into Kate's house when I was picking them up! As before, Kate was very professional and quick to respond to my messages. And I of course appreciated the daily photo updates. Highly recommend.

Originally, I had a set date of when Kate would host my dog for me but due to flight cancellations, I was not able to fly back home until two days past our intended reservation. Thankfully, Kate was extremely flexible and did not hesitate to host our dog for another two days. She took care of our dog well and ensured that the extended stay would not make him stressful by taking him out for walks and giving him loving attention. Kate was AMAZING. This woman understands the importance of a nurturing, loving, and safe environment and worked relentlessly to ensure that our dog was provided that. If you come across Kate that it's a sign to stop searching for other host because she is the perfect host for you! I HIGHLY recommend Kate as the host for all your furry friends' needs! THANK YOU, KATE!

If you need a trustworthy and reliable dog sitter with a heart of goal, then Kate is THE woman for the job. She doesn't just host the pets and go through a checklist of what needs to get done, she truly goes above and beyond in all areas of service. She cares for the pets as if they were her own and she continually updates you via text with images of what your loving friends are doing on the daily. Kate is different from the average host in that she will do anything to ensure that your furry friends are having a comfortable stay and are tended to well 24/7. I highly recommend Kate to host your pets-- you cannot go wrong with this woman! Thank YOU, Kate!

Kate was a first rate host for my dog Casey. She kept me updated with photos and texts, which really put me at ease. She thinks hard about what is right for not only my dog, but any other dog that may be there. I highly recommend Kate if you are thinking about boarding your dog here.

By the way, my dog is a highly energetic, 60 lb., 3 year old Labradoodle.

500 stars! As always :-)
If I could rate this with 100 stars I would.
Kate is literally the best and most accommodating person I have ever met. I feel blessed to have found her.
Not only did she treat both of my dogs like princesses, so has been an absolute pleasure to deal with. She's so kind, accommodated my many needs, pays strict attention to detail, sends me pics and updates daily, as well as responding to my texts and phone calls. She's a very loving person to animals, and humans! She's gone above and beyond to fulfill all of my pets needs. I highly recommend Kate.

Champ is thrilled to spend time with "mama Kate!" He is picky and very attached to me....so I know Kate goes above and beyond ALWAYS for her guests! It shows. We love her and her family!!
Again, Kate's house is so much more fun than home! We are so relaxed leaving town knowing that Sophie will be loved and cared for. Thanks again and again!!!!!
Kate is awesome! I never have to worry about my babies, Fievel and Georgia Love Kate! Another 5 star Pawsome experience! Thanks :)
Kate and her son, Jordan are the perfect hosts for my slightly neurotic but amazing dog Champ. They understand all of his "special" nuances and provide the TLC he needs. I love my updates and adorable photos. We adore Kate!!!
Another wonderful, loving day spent at "Mama Kates!" Champ adores her and the other play mates she hosts! Always peace of mind for me....!!
Kate did an amazing job and kept me posted with photos of Pepper all day! Pepper had a great time!
Kate and Champ are perfect together. Kate treats him like her own.....which is pretty darned good! :)
Kate was wonderful with our dogs and I would highly recommend her. She was very prompt in answering my original inquiries and very professional and friendly in all our correspondences. From the initial meet and greet, we were very comfortable with her and she was wonderful interacting with our dogs. She sent us multiple updates and photos each day we were traveling. I would definitely use Kate again to look after our dogs.

Thank you Kate for a fun weekend with Kioki. He was very well taken care of and pampered. Your services are invaluable. We look forward to future doggie sleep-overs... :)
Kate, Jordan, and Jasper(the dog) are the best hosts a person could wish for. My dog Cowboy is showered with love and gets individualized care 24-7. I didn't take enough food this stay so Kate made sure that Cowboy had plenty of healthy meals until I returned. Thanks Kate!!! You and your family are angels from above!!!

Once again, I had an absolutely fabulous time at Disneyland for Dogs. I met a labradoodle who, I think, has a little crush on me! Kate says I was flirting, but I think he liked my big brown eyes! Kate and her son, Jordan always treat me like a princess! Well... after all... I am! I spent the night with Kate and she snuggled me till I fell asleep. She is so cool! She always makes these play-dates so much fun, at least that's what mom says cuz I always slip into a coma of exhaustion in the car going home. I use to be a little scared when mom & dad dropped me off. I never knew if it was for the day, the night or a week. But now, it never bothers me, cuz I know Kate & Jordan will always take very good care of me and I usually make a new friend or two!
So if your mom & dad are looking for a place for you to hang out while they're doing their thing, be sure to tell them about Disneyland for Dogs! It really is the coolest place to stay! You'll LOVE it!!!

One happy doggie,
Moxie Haines

As usual....Kate exceeds all expectations!
Dear Kate ~
Thank you soooooo much for making my visit with you sooooooo much fun. I really had a blast! I LOVE paying at your house, you are such a terrific hostess! You better not tell mom how much you spoil me with lovin and attention, she may get jealous! You know how moms can be! Jasper is always so friendly. I think he may have a lil crush on me! I hope so cuz I really like him! I'm soooooo looking forward to my sleep-over Thursday night with you and Jordan. I'm gonna bring those cute cocker jammies again!
This time I won't let mom forget my nibbles and treats... again! She is so forgetful!!! See you soon!!!

xoxo, Moxie Haines

Kate watched all three of our dogs for 10 days over the holidays. She is great with communication and takes such great care of our pups. We couldn't ask for more!
Lucy loves going to Kate's Disneyland! When we drive up to her home she bolts out of the car to the front door! After leaving her for two weeks we were afraid she would have had so much fun that she wouldn't want to come home. Kate and Jordan are loving and fun. PS Lucy was happy to see us!
Read More...
Kate really deserves 100 stars! She really is terrific. Our Moxie had a blast playing with some of her favorite dog pals. I know she had fun because the minute she got into the car, she slipped into a coma on my husband's lap and had to be carried into the house! She was one tired out pup. Happy and pooped out! It's always so comforting to know that we are leaving our pet with someone who gives her as much loving as we do. We have no worries, we know she is in good hands. Kate is really the best!!!
Read More...
Kate - and her "Disneyland for Dogs" home - is wonderful! Dozer seemed to have a great time and came home tired and happy, with no signs of anxiety as he has experienced before with boarding or former pet-sitters. I loved all the pictures that Kate sent me, and Dozer seemed to have a blast playing with her dog and her son, along with another pup friend who was also staying with Kate for a few days. Kate's yard is lovely, shaded, and perfect for dogs to romp and enjoy, and she clearly adores dogs and treats them like her own. Thanks so much, Kate!
Read More...
Kate was as awesome a host as one could possibly ask for, she sent several photo updates, and was clearly an incredibly loving caretaker while I was away. Her son Jordan was great with my dog as well, and really made him feel at home. I will be using her again for sure!
Read More...
Once again, Kate came to the rescue. Just needed to have her watch Moxie for a few hours. If tugging like crazy on the leash to get to the front door is any indication of her knowing that she is about to go somewhere she is familiar with and fun is on the menu! Then I guess I understand her "dog speak! As always, Kate is a delight to deal with and has certainly become like one of the family. I can never find just the right words for the recommendation of Kate's Disneyland for Dogs. Suffice to say... She IS the BEST!!! I wish I could give her 100 stars!!!

Willow had a wonderful time at Kate's! Kate was super flexible with my schedule, sent daily updates with pictures, and even brushed out Willow's unruly hair for me. I was nervous as this was Willow's (4 month puppy) first experience with Dogvacay, but Kate put all my concerns at ease. Willow can't wait to visit again!

Kate L. was the perfect match for our Old English Sheepdog, Bentley, as well as for us. We had never left 5 yr. old Bentley at anyone's home before, so we were naturally apprehensive. Our initial "meet & greet" went very well & I was impressed with Kate's outgoing personality & obvious love of dogs. I immediately felt comfortable
knowing that Bentley would be well cared for & have fun too! I was not disappointed. Kate sent updates on Bentley's eating & behavior & included many photos which gave us just what we needed. . . ."peace of mind". Throughout the trip, I could easily check out the photos & updates on my phone & have a connection to Bentley. When the day came to pick up Bentley, Kate had all of Bentley's things ready to go when we arrived. She is very organized & I would not hesitate to recommend her unconditionally. She also has a wonderful son, whom Bentley fell in love with. Kudos to Kate for her love & caring!!!

Kate's is always a highlight for our Frenchie, Lucy!!
We are so delighted with the care that our dog Belle received while in Kate's care.

Upon meeting Kate for the Meet and Greet, I left with a sense of confidence that Belle would be well cared for. Kate is exceptionally professional and very knowledgeable about dogs in her care, while at the same time she is caring and affectionate. We are grateful for the many pictures she sent to us and the details about Belle's day.

Thank you Kate for your wonderful care!!

Kate calls her home a Disneyland for dogs, but I think she should reconsider and call it a wonderland for dogs because she has such a wonderful way with dogs. We left our dog Lola with Kate for one week. This was our first time being away from Lola and we were very anxious about it. We weren't sure how Lola would adjust--would she be nervous, anxious, upset? When we met Kate she immediately put us at ease. She has a lovely home with a big backyard for the dogs to run around in. It's just like a home away from home. Kate was wonderful. She kept to Lola's routine and sent us daily e-mails with photos of Lola. She even bathed Lola the day before we picked her up. She also followed up with us the day after we picked her up to see how Lola was doing. Our dog had so much fun. For her it was like a sleepover at a friends house where you get to make new friends and play all day. Lola was like a member of their family. Our family is so grateful to Kate and her son Jordan for their loving care of our dog.

Kate hosted my dachshund for a week while I went out of town...
It was the first time that I had to board my dog and I was concerned that he receive the very best care. He was also taking medication during this time.
Kate took the time during the 'meet and greet' session to become acquainted with my pup.
During my dog's stay, Kate sent pictures and informative notes to me each day. I was very impressed and pleased to see the level of care that Kate was providing for my pup.
I will certainly contact Kate the next time my dog needs boarding...!

My family brought our Maltese dog to Kate, and from the first moment she came to greet us we knew our Didi would be in good hands. Kate is warm, welcoming with an incredibly gentle soul who understands the needs of the pups under her care. When we picked up Didi after our 3 day vacation, Kate had even given Didi a shower! Her hospitality exceeded our expectations, and we recommend her services to anyone looking for a great caretaker for their dog.

Kate is a treasure. She is the reason I manage to enjoy the time I spend away from my beloved little guy,Champ. She is so much more than a "host" for Champ. I truly think she loves him as much as I do. Kate is very conscientious and competent. I will follow her wherever she goes! Which , I pray is never far from me!

Whenever Moxie is wiggling like crazy to get out of the car and run up to the front door, she knows she's going someplace fun. "Yeah, yeah, yeah... C'mon, open the door! C'mon, hurry! I wanna get into Disneyland for Dogs!" OK, so she doesn't exactly SAY that. But her body language is sure screaming it! Once again we were able to thoroughly enjoy our evening at the reunion without a single worry about our dog. Moxie enjoyed a sleep-over with her favorite new buddies. I know I'm repeating myself, but how many ways can you say that someone is soooooooooo terrific!!! Kate is the best! Moxie doesn't miss out on any of the attention and lovin she's use to getting at home. The extra bonus is her son, Jordan. Moxie LOVES playing with kids and Jordan is really great with her too playing fetch in their big backyard. Our yard is on the small side, so it's really good for her to have the space to run around at full speed. I just wish we could give Kate 20 stars! She sure deserves it! For a completely worry-free vacation, you can rest assured that your dog is in the excellent care of Kate at Disneyland for dogs!!!

Once again, Moxie had a fabulous time at Doggie Disneyland! It was just for the day while we attended a party, but it seemed to be a fun-packed day for Moxie. As soon as she got into the car, she conked out on my lap. That's a sure-fire way of telling if she had a fun, playful day or not. Kate has become our "go to" sitter. Moxie loves her and her son, Jordan and their dog, Jasper. They are all so loving and attentive to her too. We know when Moxie is with Kate, we need not worry about a single thing. They're all part of our family now. If you are looking for exceptional care for your dog... look no further. I wish I could give Kate 12 stars! She certainly deserves it. She is, quite frankly, the BEST!!!
Read More...
The ONLY reason I wouldn't give Kate 12 stars is... I don't want to share her!!! She has been so great watching our Moxie while we travel. Prior to our trip, we had a couple of play dates so Moxie could get use to Kate, her family and dog, Jasper. She always came home exhausted, which is always a great sign that she had waaaay too much fun! Kate has been sending very frequent updates along with photos. I'm just hoping Moxie will want to come back home with us when we return!!! The photos are wonderful. She really looks like she feels safe and secure and we are thrilled because we know she is. Kate and her family are giving Moxie all the love and attention she gets at home. Her slightly spoiled dog life hasn't skipped a beat! I couldn't be happier. Kate is a God send, we would highly recommend her. Your dog will definitely be in loving hands and you will be able to enjoy your travels.
I just wish I could give her a bazillion stars!!!

Another great stay with Kate! Our 2 dogs stayed with Kate and her family during our two week summer vacation in June. They were safe, well cared for, exercised and loved. Kate sent us pictures of the dogs and let us know how they were doing. One of our dogs doesn't eat well when we leave, but Kate got her to eat by hand feeding her the first day or so. I so appreciate finding Kate and will happily have our dogs stay with her for all our vacations.

When planning a vacation we have tremendous concern for the care of our two Golden Retrievers, Charlie & Honey. We used Kate once before for an overnighter but this time it was for a full week. Our dogs really enjoy their stay with Kate & her son Jordan. It's as close to "home away from home" and when we leave them we are extremely confident Kate and Jordan will take great care. We can't thank Kate enough for her loving kindness she gives our dogs while we are gone. We highly recommend Kate and would definitely use her services again! Our rating for Kate & Jordan....A perfect 10!!

Once again a fantastic stay at Disneyland For Dogs. Bailey loves Kate and Jordan! You will not be disappointed with the care here. We were out of the country for 11days and never once worried about our little Bailey. Thanks Kate!
Kate and Jordan are the best most loving and caring team your dog could ever wish for. If you want to give your fuzzy friend a real treat, let them go to Kate's house. Short stays or long, Kate makes the process easy, worry free and a real joy. Than God for Kate!!!

Kate and her family are amazing. My dog Cowboy is my pride and joy and I am very particular about everything in his life. Kate treated him like one of her own and she was always available to let me know how Cowboy was getting along. He was totally spent when he came home because he played with the other dogs. I call kate my beagle angel because she is a gift and im so thankful I found her.

I will try to put into words how much Kate meant to me and my husband. I have never boarded my girls, Mokey and Miss Baker, and I was very anxious. Also, I had made arrangements with someone and they canceled two days before I was to go out of state for a week! I found Dog Vacay online and contacted two sitters close to me. Kate was the first to call back and she was so kind and told me that the short notice was no problem. We set up a meet and greet which went so well and she agreed to keep them. The day I dropped them off was so stressful but she made me feel so much better. I am the pet parent that people talk about, lol, I will explain by telling you what I took over to Kate the morning of the drop off. I had their pillows, a shirt of my husband's for comfort, a memory foam mattress to go under Mokey's pillow, two toys, 6 chew bones, 3 bowls, Mokey's personal fan, a precooked meal for that night and ingredients for the rest of the week, and a book with not only instructions but also personality profiles of each. Yep, I'm that person.
Kate took it all in stride, showed me where they would sleep, eat and play, asked about their schedule and gave them so much love. I could tell that they were calm and happy so my husband and I left.
Everyday that we were away we received pictures and updates so I knew my girls were happy. Kate's son Jordan really has a gift and the girls loved him immediately. Kate also has a great dog, Jasper, who kept the girls entertained. I could not have been happier and I have told everyone about my experience. I recommend Kate to all my friends and will be asking for her services again and again. She is wonderful and was an answer to prayer for me. Thank you Kate! !!!!

As always, my dogs love Kate and are always exhausted when they come home (in a good way!). Kate's daily updates and photos allow us to be able to relax and not worry about them while on vacation. Kate and Jordan both treat our dogs like part of their family!

Kate was so easy to work with and took such great care of our two dogs. She was a great communicator both during booking and while we were away. We will definitely book again.
Kate is just amazing! I know my little one can be quite a handful; but, Kate makes me feel at ease with her updates and I know Pepper is in great hands.
We loved Kate! She sent us daily pictures of our dog so we felt very connected. We will use Kate in the future for sure!!!
As always, Sophie had an amazing time at Kate's house. We feel so blessed to have found her and knowing that Sophie is there makes us able to enjoy our time away without worrying about whether Sophie is getting enough love. There's lot's to go around at Kates house!!

As always, Kate and her son, Jordan, pampered and loved Ripley shamelessly. He came home happy and tired (and clean!). I'm pretty sure he's pining to go back. Thank you for the peace of mind from keeping us posted with pictures and updates of his trip to Disneyland. We're so glad to have found you.

10 Stars for Kate!!! This is our first time using DogVacay for our dog Bailey. We were DogVacay hosts for a year and a half and love this company! Kate was fantastic. She went out of her way for our little pup. We received a photo everyday and Bailey was smiling in every picture! We highly recommend Disneyland For Dogs you wont be disappointed. Thank you Kate and Jodan for loving Bailey.

Our dogs absolutely LOVE staying with Kate! She treats them as her own, and they consider her and her son part of their pack, just as they do my husband and me. Kate takes them on walks, sends me pictures of them having fun while we are away, and is always responsive in communication with us. The dogs come home happy, well-cared for, and relaxed. We have true peace of mind knowing that our dogs are with Kate when they can't be with us.

Kate is the best! She was very accommodating. Kate is very good with updates sending pictures through email or through facebook. Donut was very happy staying with Kate. Donut is a very picky eater, sometimes she will not eat. After I came back from my trip Kate had fixed Donut's eating habits! Kate is truly a dream come true when it comes to looking after dogs. Thanks Kate!

Another GREAT time with Kate!! Lucy jumps out of the car when we arrive at Kate's house. She loves it!! Kate is always quick to respond to requests and the experience is alsways great!!
There is no better solution to having to leave your doggie behind than to have her stay at Kate's house. Kate and her son are so caring and loving and the doggies have more fun there than anywhere !! I can't recommend Kate highly enough!
We had never left our dog with someone other than family, so we were a bit anxious. After meeting Kate and her son, we knew that Ginny would be well taken care of. Kate texted us daily with photos and updates. It was such a relief to see her looking happy and relaxed. Kate was amazing with Ginny and even let her sleep in her bed! We couldn't have been more pleased with Ginny's care. We will definetely be calling Kate again! Thank you.

Kate really makes you feel like you are leaving your beloved family pet in kind, loving and safe hands. We are so happy to have found her.
Couldn't be more pleased with the entire experience. From the first day we met Kate, I knew she would take good care of our dog while we were out of town. What I did not expect (but loved) were all the great texts with pictures and updates! Kate was made for this type of work and I would recommend her to any dog owner.

Wonderful! We were finally able to go on vacation and not worry. Kate sent us daily texts and photos of our two dogs and we could tell they were getting lots of love and attention. Kate obviously loves dogs and treated ours like they were her own. Most importantly, I knew that they were safe staying at her home. We are so glad we've finally found a place for our dogs when we can't be with them.

Kate is wonderful! She is very accommodating and very consistent with updates on how Chewy was doing. She really cares about Chewy like he was her own. We are very glad to have found her and will continue to use her.
I absolutely love Kate and Jordan! It's like taking my babies (Fievel & Georgia) to their second home! I feel totally relaxed and I can enjoy my stay away from my doggies knowing they're in "Great" hands! Also my babies love Kate and Jordan. :)
Pawsome experience!!!!!!!!!

As always, Kate takes the best care of our sweet Sophie. She sends pictures, texts and stays in very good contact. She is flexible on pickup and delivery times and, best of all, LOVES our puppy who is a total affection junkie!
Kate's place was wonderful. Our dog Taz came home happy. He got lots of love and attention. He was spoiled rotten. We love Kate!
Ripley was so loved and pampered by Kate and her son, I almost felt guilty taking him home with me! He's full of energy and mischief - and came home happily tired-out, an experience I've come to appreciate from DogVacay. To my surprise, he was also clean and fluffy - a kindness not at all expected!!

It's a thrill to meet someone who adores my dog - and Kate is that someone. I will plan all my future vacations around her schedule.

Kate was amazing! She kept me updated with texts and photos throughout the day. Pepper had a really fun time playing with her new friends. I feel really comfortable leaving Pepper in Kate's care. Highly recommended!
Kate and her son take terrific care of Sophie. We know we can rely on them to show Sophie a great time!
First time boarding Bongo with Kate and we loved her and our dog did too. She was so excited to have him and showed me her house and met her dog when we arrived. I got updates and photos throughout his stay which i really appreciated. Bongo seemed very happy and was tired when I picked him up which is awesome! Very happy to have found Kate.

Kate was wonderful. She took Chewy at the last minute, was very caring and professional. We got wonderful update photos showing Chewy having a great time, so much so we weren't sure he would want to come home! Thank you Kate and Jordan for taking such good care of him for us! We will use Kate again in the future!

This is my first time to use DogVacay and I am so lucky to find Kate! She is Super! My baby had such a great time with her ,her son, and Jasper. Kuma really got along so well with them. She emailed me updates every day with pictures. She took care of Kuma like her own baby and I can tell Kuma loves her. I and my husband visited her few days later. Kuma was so exited and happy to see her! He kissed her, played and run with Jasper right away we got there :) Highly recommend!!

Great for a second visit. This one at the last minute and Kate was able to take Lucy in with loving arms. As Lucy got out of the car she RAN over to Kate and Jordan - now that's a really good sign!!!
Amazing as always! Thanks so much for the great photos and lots of love while we were away.
Our 15 month Frenchie, Lucy, had a great stay with Kate and her son. She is used to lots of human attention, cuddles, and belly rubs...and she got them ALL!! Kate was quick with her email responses, sent lots of pics, and helped us with this 'first away from home' ordeal, ours not Lucy's!

Kate and her son were the perfect hosts to our lovely Sophie. They made her feel right at home and sent us daily updates with pictures to show what a nice time she was having. Kate is very flexible with schedules and a true doggie lover. We highly recommend Kate and her Doggie Disneyland experience. !

Kate and her family are wonderful hosts, and sent us great photos of our dog having the best time. We highly recommend them!
It is our dog's second stay here. He came home tired and slept like baby so I assume he had good time with the host Jasper and other doggy friends. Kate is flexible in schedule and the location is just convenient for us. It is awesome knowing someone is open for our baby with no hard feeling, we will definitely book with Kate again.Thank you Kate!

This was our first time using dogvacay.com as we had moved too far away from our previous dog sitter. Kate was responsive right away to our note and let us come meet her and her family. Our dog, Abby, has separation anxiety that has made using group kennels very difficult. We appreciated the extra attention Kate gave to Abby and the regular updates while we were away. Abby seemed to have a great time!

My two dogs came home exhausted and slept for two days. Kate and her son do a great job. They keep in touch with you for any questions and let you know how the dogs are doing. Kate also lets you know up front how many other dogs will be there and what type of dog they are. No suprises like other sitters .

For a first time Dogvacay user I was very pleased with my experience with Kate. She was very kind and kept me updated on how my dog was doing. I will definitely use her services again. I can tell she took the best care of my dog and that she is a great person. Thank you!

Kate is amazing!! She, her son, and their dog Jasper spoiled my dogs. I have a 10 year old doxie and a young mixed pit puppy. Neither had boarded before. And both have different age based needs. As soon as I met Kate at the meet and greet I knew my family was in safe hands. She took time to get to know each dog, asking me lots of questions about their likes/dislikes/daily routine, supervised playtime with Jasper, and made me feel the dogs would be treated as I would treat them at home. When I came back to drop the dogs off for the weekend both my dogs ran to her door. They were so excited to be there. Over the weekend she sent me lots of pictures and dog updates. I cannot begin to say enough good things about her and her team. My dogs were happy and cared for like family. If you are considering Kate and take the time to do a meet and greet you will be thrilled. I look forward to having my dogs stay with her again.

Big thanks to Kate took my dog in almost last minute. The place is nice and warm and I know I could trust her in the first minute we met. We will definitely go back!
Kate and her family were awesome! They loved and treated our dog, Grizzly, as if he was their own.

Kate sent pictures and updates every day to let us know how Grizzly was doing.

He got a lot of exercise running around in her backyard and playing with her dog. They also took him on daily run/walks.

We would definitely recommend Kate and will use her again in the future.

Thanks!
