About Katie

13 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We have a wonderful family home where we will treat your pet like part of our family while you're away. Your pet will have access to our entire downstairs area and there is a dog door where they can access the fenced-in back yard at any time. Ivan is our 62lb husky who is super friendly and loves having company - he'll be sure to show your buddy the ropes and how to avoid the lazy cat! Ivan is 4 years old and we recently lost our 82lb boxer mix to cancer. We also have two children (ages 6 & 8) who love dogs but, overall, are more concerned with Legos and swords.

While you're gone, we will go on a daily walk/job, take naps, play with toys, and we will run around as much as possible in the back yard.

We would be thrilled to have your best friend visit us while you're away; you can be sure that they are staying happy, healthy, and having a great time.

**Please note: While we can take on a dog who likes to pull on the leash, hates walks altogether and wants to nap all day, or doesn't always sit when told to, we will not be able to take in any dogs who are aggressive towards other animals or any age people

Other Notes:
Minimum 2 Night Stay Required **We can make exceptions but will charge a $15 surcharge

Drop Off And Pick Up: We are fairly flexible and have never had an issue with our clients; however, we ask that all dogs be picked up/dropped off no later than 8:30 PM.

Katie and Ivan were great hosts to our Pennie! We had never left her overnight before and were a little nervous, but Katie took great care of her, sent lots of updates, and said Pennie did great without us - probably because Katie kept her busy with lots of toys, walks and playtime with Ivan. When we picked her up, Pennie was happy to see us and tired, but when we got her home, I'm pretty sure she was ready to go back to Katie's house for another vacay. We probably missed her more than she missed us! We will definitely book with Katie again in the future. Thanks, Katie!
We were very pleased with Katie . She treated Goldie as one of her own dogs,took her on daily walks , sent a lot of pictures.. I will definitely recommend her .
Katie and her family are the best! They took great care of Birdy. We loved all the texts and the pictures. She loved the kids, the other hounds, and all the loving. Knowing she was happy and cared for made for a great family vacation.
Katie's place was a perfect fit for Stella. Big back yard and lots of love. Loved getting the pics and seeing that she was well cared for and sooooooo happy
She was brillant and sent lots of pictures of our pups. Will definitely use her services again.
Fantastic with our attention-needy dog...even for a whole week. :)
Katie was a great sitter to our dog Caesar, she really made it easy to be away from him. Even with it being a short trip she still managed to send pics and fill us in on his stay. Katie has a perfect yard for the dogs to run and play, she was even kind enough to provide bones for the dogs to occupy their time. I would highly recommend Katie to any pet owner and will definitely be using her in the future. I know for me it's never easy to be away from my pup so, to have a person who is a true animal lover, really puts the mind at ease.
Awesome sitter, gave me daily picture updates and took my pup on long hikes. Second time using her and it was an excellent time.

Katie is a wonderful host! I'm so glad that my friend recommended her to me. Katie had a great backyard, took Paisley (my dog) for long walks and runs, and gave us regular updates on how Paisley was doing. Katie was warm and welcoming - everything you could want in a host! Highly Recommend!
Katie was awesome! Rudy has a lot of energy and needs an eye on him, even in a completely fenced in yard, and Katie made sure my escape artist didn't get out! I love that she took him running in the mornings! I'd highly recommend Katie.
We felt very relaxed leaving our 13 1/2 year old Simon with Katie and her family. She let us know daily how he was doing and sent pictures of him. That meant a lot to us. We would definitely use Katie again.
Ranger stayed 6 nights with Katie and had a great time. Between long walks, which he loves, going in and out of the doggie door to a big back yard, and lounging on a doggie bed, he had a super time. Thanks again Katie!! I would recommend Katie to all my friends.
Katie was great! She sent us plenty of pictures and Theo had a blast staying with her. We will definitely be back! Thanks so much, Katie.
In a new city for only 3 days but having to go to a conference almost immediately, I was extremely concerned that Diggz would not adjust, would be confused and scared, and would try to get out and track me down. He is the worst tracker in the world. At our meet-and-greet, Diggz took to Katie and her home immediately! When I dropped him off, he raced off to play, so I knew he was in the right place. Katie updated me daily with texts and photos, and treated Diggz like a king! I returned to a very happy dog who'd had a spa vacation, with walks, runs, nice meals, and lots of affection every day. I cannot say enough good things about Katie! Thank you!
I have booked with Katie twice at first I was nervous leaving my pup for the first time for three nights in a row, But Katie assured me Luna was having fun and being loved by Katie's family and her loving dog Ivan. Katie even kept me up to date with all of Luna's activities, and pictures/videos throughout the day which makes me happy to see my pup while I'm away and know she is in good hands. Katie has been nothing but AMAZING, and we will definitely be booking with her in the future.
Katie was fantastic! She was so easy to work with and extremely flexible. We were detained in our travels and she graciously kept our dog an additional night. Her love of dogs is very obvious and she took great care of our girl. This was evident in the daily texts and pics she sent. We were able to enjoy our time away knowing our girl was loved and enjoying her time with new friends. I would recommend Katie to anyone needing piece of mind that their furry friend is very well cared for.
Katie is the best, Cooper had a blast he was completely worn out from playing, I will be going back to her many times to come. We had such a peace while we were away!
Buckley had a great time staying with Katie. Katie was extremely prepared and professional. She was understanding when we were not able to pick Buckley up on time. I highly recommend Katie to anyone.
Katie and her family were fantastic. We felt like our senior dog was well taken care of and loved. We were so happy with his trip we booked again for another vacation. Thank you again for treating him like part of the family
Katherine was excellent. Everyone was happy! Would highly recommend her services to anyone. Hope to use her again soon.
Katie was very quick to respond to my last minute request for a reservation even on a holiday weekend. She was very accommodating to our early morning departure and flexible return time. Katie and her family and dog were very welcoming to us and our dog. Loved that she had a fenced backyard for the dogs to run and she took the dogs for a walk in her neighborhood. She was in constant communication with us through text and pictures.
