About Catherine

If you are planning a get away to the country in scenic Upstate NY for some awesome views, hiking, antique shopping and museums. We are about 2 1/2 hours away from the NYC. My fiance Bob and I will provide love and care for your hairy friend in our small, quiet town country home. Your pooch's experience means alot to us so we only book one client at a time. Our home is a relatively new 3 bedroom mobile home on approximately an acre of land in the valley with a great view and lots of fresh air, nature and quiet. We have a cat whom is very attached to me and our dog Ziggy, she follows us every where but if she feels uncomfortable she will find a hiding spot. Suggested items to bring with your HF should you decide to book with us would be.
1 dish
2 leash/harness
3 favorite toy
4 tee shirt worn by you that has your scent on it.
5 Favorite treat, food
6 bed if he has his own.
7 a jacket if he wears them
Your HF experience means alot to us. We feel that the more stuff he has with him from home, the better he/she will feel. We don't crate or muzzle. As you can see we have no reviews that is because we have not hosted as of yet. It is very important to find the right fit for our Hairy friend to get his feet wet. We would love to see him make friends with dogs that he is not fearful of or overwhelmed by. When he becomes overwhelmed by another dog he jumps up on my leg and whimpers for me to pick him up much like a human child would do. He is not aggressive in any way. We would love to host a dog of the same size and temperament (easy going and sweet). Perhaps in the future I would be open to more but to ensure the vaca is a great experience for all I must remain mindful of such things. Also it is very important to meet in a neutral area first.

*** Fence Measurements are as follows. Because the land slopes down slightly, the fence is mostly 3' but on the sides it goes down to 2' 5". The posts are 3" apart. If these measurements don't give you a warm fuzzy feeling. He can be secured and keep in mind we will be going on walks throughout the day. And they will be safe, well traveled nature walks. Bob and I Never, ever leave Ziggy alone unattended in the back yard. Very firm rule we live by. Your hairy friend will always be watched, played with, spoken to, rubbed and walked.

Bisco had a great time staying with Catherine and company. She showed us around her place and made sure Bisco got along well with her dogs. She is clearly someone with genuine affection for dogs, and it shows. Nice fenced in backyard and even sent us a few texts with pictures of our little guy enjoying his stay. Glad we connected with Catherine and will use her services again.
