About Katelyn

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have recently moved to beautiful Richmond and would love to take your furry companion on adventures to explore the surrounding trails and parks. Tell your pup to expect long walks (or lazy yard lays if preferred), playing fetch, snuggling up to a movie, and, my favorite, tug-o-warrrrrrrrrruff!

I live in a duplex-style house framing Byrd Park--there is even a dog playground right around the corner if your pup is feeling social. My schedule is very accommodating, so I am open to last minute booking and can guarantee quality time with your pet.

Whether big or small, short or tall we are sure to have a ball...just give me a call? Haha I couldn't resist, but I hope to hear from you soon so I can have some furry exploration buddies in this new city! Thanks so much!

Katelyn was awesome, yet again. Never felt concerned or stressed about leaving Zoe, which was a first since I was leaving her for a whole week. Zoe was tired and happy when I picked her up but there were no signs of stress or anxiety which she's had when I've left her with other people for multiple days. Zoe will be back whenever I'm out of town again!
Katelyn came to the rescue when our Thanksgiving dog sitting plans fell apart. She came to our home to meet our two dogs (a boxer mix and a Doberman), and they immediately fell in love! It's clear from the moment you meet her that Katelyn is a true dog lover. She took great care of our pups for 6 days, walking, feeding, and playing with them. I highly recommend her to look after your pets!
Katelyn was so awesome with Henry. Extremely accommodating with his needs and communicated with me a lot while she had him. Will definitely be booking her lots more in the future!!
Katelyn did an amazing job caring for our Frenchie, and our 2 cats. I could tell instantly at our meet-and-greet that we is a true animal lover! She stayed at our house since we have 3 guys to care for, and updated us with texts and photos! She also did a great job with our oldest cat's his medication. Our animals are family, so her great communication and care was greatly appreciated!
Katelyn was great yet again - Zoe had a great time playing and getting all the attention she needed.
Chase had so much fun at Katelyn's house. Thank you for taking great care of him.
Zoe had a great time with Katelyn. She spent an hour and quickly responded whenever I had a question. We look forward to the next time!
Katelyn was great with my 4 legged babies. I have a very energetic standard poodle who is 17 months old and she did very well with her and when I got home she was very happy. I got lots of pictures and updates. are super, you took on a big challenge with only a couple days notice.

Katelyn, was fantastic!! Chase had a great time and I loved the constant picture updates. I would definitely choose her again to watch my pup. Thanks again Katelyn!
Katelyn did an excellent job for us. She was super flexible on timing and spent her own personal hours reviewing items with us and meeting Mila (our 60 lb GSP) prior to her first Vacay visit. Mila instantly responded to Katelyn in a positive way and we can't wait to use Katelyn again in the future. Her love and passion for animals shines through and there is no doubt that our four legged child is in good hands with her!
I need last minute help with my 2 dogs and Katelyn came to my rescue! She took the time to drive to my apartments (30 minutes away) and spent real quality time with my bears. I got pictures and updates on how they were doing. From the pictures they appeared to be really happy. My dogs are my babies and leaving them with a stranger was tough, but Katelyn did a fantastic job with them and kept my mind at ease. I definitely recommend her with anyone's baby bears.
Katelyn was great with our 2 large dogs. We were gone a week and definitely felt they were in great hands. I think they had a lot of fun during their vacation as well because they slept for a couple days straight when we got home!
My dog loves her! Katelyn was so helpful in setting up this process. Will certainly book her again!
Thanks again Katelyn! Seems like Max had a great time. Thanks for keeping him safe!
Katelyn did a wonderful job with Chewy, my 1.5 year old male Shiba Inu. She accommodated my request on very short notice, which was a life saver. She was very responsive throughout my trip. She even taught Chewy a new trick, which is really impressive considering how stubborn Shibas can be!
