About Cathy

50 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a certified dog trainer (CCDT, CDKT) and whether I'm training, walking, or watching your dog, I believe in communicating with them through Positive Reinforcement (PR). I work 5 days a week, so your dog should be comfortable being home with my dog for about 8.5 hours those days.

While you're away, you can be sure your dog will be cared for like a member of my pet family (dog and 2 cats) and get daily exercise (we have great trails) and be happy in my care--your house or mine! I take my dog for a minimum of 4 walks/day. Indoors we play mind games (bring me a ball, martian--Buzz's favorite toy!--or bone, hide-n-seek the treat), tug, and do a little training daily.

My goal through PR Training, is to save dogs from being sent to shelters and help Rescues keep their new homes FOREVER! I volunteer with the Fairfax Animal Shelter and local Rescues.

We did this last minute and Cathy helped us out! (Not that you should do this!) Our original DogVacay sitter didn't work out, and I was left with the vet, who didn't tell me when they would close - so we would have to cancel our Christmas plans! Cathy had us come out and take a walk with her dog before hand, and said she would be happy to take my two dogs. She has training in dog training and handling, and she was great with our dogs. She sent us pics and videos telling us how they were doing, and they were doing great! She has a lovely dog friendly home and she walked the 3 times a day, and took great care of them altogether. I would not hesitate to recommend her, and I intend to use her in the future!

We leave our dog, Willie, with Cathy whenever we go out of town and she is available. She always enthusiastically welcomes him and we know she takes very special care of him. I would never hesitate leaving Willie with Cathy and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a special person to care for their pet. Cathy really is pawsome!!

We have left our dog, Willie, with Cathy ever since we discovered DogVacay and feel very fortunate to have found her to care for Willie. We know he's in the best hands and that Cathy treats him as her own; he loves seeing Cathy and her family each time and has become best pals with Cathy's dog, Buzz. We hope we can leave Willie with Cathy whenever we go away.
