About Cathy

23 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Offering family-style boarding, you'll be proud that your dog can say, "This feels like home." Lifelong dog owners, our resident pup is a female Golden Retriever. With two children off to college and our youngest in middle school full time, this mom and wife of 24 years will give your dog(s) LOTS of love and attention in our large, carpeted, smoke-free home with fenced yard in Northwest Bradenton.

Prior to boarding, a Meet-N-Greet is required as it's a great opportunity to get acquainted and it equips us to provide your pet with the accommodations to best suit their needs. Your pet's vaccination record will be kept on file during his or her stay and it is required that our guests be treated with vet-approved flea and tick medication. If there are specific instructions for us to follow, such as with feeding, walking, behavior or medication, please bring it up during our visit.

Your dog will receive one-on-one attention and exercise as our guests have supervised free run in our home as well as in our fenced backyard. We don't provide crates or cages, so if your dog uses one, please bring it with you so that he/she has his/her own place to sleep or rest, undisturbed. We host up to two guests at the same time, so your dog will have a playmate but also plenty of space to be alone. We are flexible. Please let us know when it's convenient for you to drop off and pick up, when your dog usually eats or goes for walks. We are here to care for your pet just as you do.

**I do work part-time 25/hrs week outside the home, Please note on weekdays only I will take in dogs that are use to being home alone while their owners work. If you see me marked unavailable but have questions about weekdays, please feel free to send me a message from my home page.

**DAYCARE HAS LIMITED AVAILABILITY DURING WEEKENDS AND SUMMER: Hours 8 am-6 pm. Feel free to inquire.

This is the first time we used this service and Cathy made it the best. Our dog had a great time and she was in frequent communications with us while Zeus was in her care. We loved her and will go back again and again. Thank you ??
As soon as I met Cathy, I knew she would take good care of our Missy and she did. She is a sweet and kind person...
We continue to be extremely pleased with Cathy's exceptional care for our golden retriever, Molly. We just don't know how we would live without her. We have used her many times, and each time Molly is thrilled to go there to spend time with We have used her many times, and each time Molly is thrilled to go there to spend time with Cathy's family including her sweet golden, Daisy.
