About Kate & Ed

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Our four legged friends get to relax, run and play in a large secure, fenced in area. The quiet, secluded neighborhood is surrounded by woods with a large pond down the street. The neighborhood dogs come to visit often and spend time with us. Our guests will have full access to the interior with naps by the fireplace or on the couch. We are continuously baking treats for our business, so the noses have plenty of exercise. Walks and scratches behind the ears are plentiful and there is lots of wildlife to enjoy in this beautiful setting. We do not accept Pitbulls and your puppy must be housebroken. Thank you!

This is my fourth or fifth review for Kate & Ed, so as you can tell, we definitely love having our pups spend time with them for their own dog vacation! Plenty of puppy updates to tide obsessive dog parents over and our dogs are always so comfortable by the end of their stay that they hardly want to leave. I highly, highly recommend booking with them if you can!
Thor and Zeus had a great stay with Kate & Ed. We appreciated knowing that our pups were well taken care of. Kate & Ed sent us updates with pictures everyday and were more than accommodating with all of our pups needs. It was clear that they gave Thor and Zeus lots of love, care, and snuggles!

Thank you Kate and Ed!
Ed and Kate were great and so kind and loving to our pup. That were very professional and thoughtful. Our pup is shy but they made her feel comfortable at their house and spoiled her. They also sent us numerous pupdates (puppy updates) throughout our vacation which we really appreciated! We will definitely use them again
My dog, Heidi, stayed with Kate & Ed for 5 nights while I was on a business trip. They sent pictures and videos everyday, and I could tell she was loving all the attention she received there. We went for a meet and greet a week before the trip so she felt at home when I left her. I will definitely be a repeat guest! They are "dog people".
Pepper loves staying with Kate and Ed. I love them too! They walk her twice a day they treat her like part of the family. Kate and Ed also send me daily updates which always make me feel like they really care about what they do.

Another fun stay for our two pups! They enjoyed plenty of snuggles and play time while on their vacation. Our bigger, older dog has been experiencing some anxiety issues, but Kate & Ed handled her fears with plenty of compassion. They left rested and happy once again!
Our dog loves staying with Kate & Ed. It has been her home away from home. As we pull up to their house she gets excited and can't wait to get out of the car to see them. We have used their services several times, and we can honestly say they love what they do and will treat your dog as if it is their own. Thank you Kate & Ed for giving us comfort that our dog is being well cared for when we are away.
This was our pups' second stay with Kate and Ed and they didn't want to leave when we picked them up! They were treated like family members and got to enjoy wonderful treats and plenty of play time. Don't hesitate booking here - you and your fur family will love it!
Kate and Ed were incredible with our puppy! They eased my mind greatly as I have never left a dog with anyone but family before. Our pup enjoyed the walks, adventures, and treats, we were afraid she wouldn't want to come home with us.
Kate and Ed are wonderful people. Like so many of us, they clearly love dogs, and they were wonderful hosts for our two girls. Between the daily walks, play time, special homemade snacks, and cuddle sessions, our dogs clearly felt like they were in paradise! Kate and Ed take the time to get to know you, your dogs and their personalities. It was clear to us that we made the right choice as soon as we saw their happy faces via the daily photo updates and then again after we picked them up. In fact, I would wager that our dogs would not have minded staying longer! They had a great time - if you book with them, you and your pups won't regret it.
Kate & Ed were really great with my Standard Poodle. They seemed to know her personality perfectly when we were talking afterwards. This let me know that they kept her busy having fun and letting her be herself. They sent a video of her that was just precious of her playing during the day. She even got a bag of homemade healthy treats to carry home! I'll certainly let my pet stay with them again!
Pepper had a great time with Kate and Ed and I loved the daily updates! It was good to know that she was in a home with people who care about dogs! Thanks for letting us both relax!
They are the best dog sitters! Duke loves them!
Ed and Kate are wonderful! As soon as we pull onto their street, my dog is already wagging his tail with excitement. They take him for daily walks and plenty of playtime! I am so glad to have someone who can take care of his special dietary and medication needs.
Kate & Ed provided a warm, loving home for my Sadie. It was like dropping my fur baby off at a friend's house while we were on vacation, and gave me total piece of mind. They also have a great yard space, and gave Sadie lots of activity. I can't thank them enough!!
Dogs had a great time as usual.
Kate and Ed treat Hiro like their own each time she comes to stay with them. She is so excited to stay with them and Her Dad and I love getting the pictures of her playing with the neighborhood animals. Hiro can't wait to go back!
A GIANT thank you for taking such great care of Sadie and Bree! We appreciate both of you for treating them like they were your own. Until our next trip..... P.S. Thanks for the treats too!
Great people. Treated Yoda just he was their own. Awesome sitters. Thanks again
We love Kate and Ed! Hiro can't wait to go back!
Our dog, Darby, had a wonderful time. We were updated daily with pictures and a note as to what she did during the day. When we arrived to pick her up, she was on their couch, looking like she was at home. We could not ask for a better dog sitter - she was treated just as she was their own dog. We have no hesitation, whatsoever, in recommending Kate & Ed.
Thank you Kate and Ed for another wonderful experience! Timber enjoyed his Christmas vacay with you, and we were able to enjoy our travels knowing he was safe and happy! I highly recommend Kate and Ed, and I am so glad we found them!
Awesome as usual. Wil had a blast!
Kate and Ed are definitely dog lovers. From the very first Meet and Greet we could see how personable and caring they were.
During our two Golden's stay, we received at least daily updates on our pup's activities, well being and photos. Kate and Ed went above board in keeping to our pups' daily schedule. They treated Zoeey and Beka like dog royalty!
We can definitely recommend Kate and Ed to anyone considering using them in the future. We will certainly use them in the future.
Kate and Ed are wonderful people who took very good care of my needy little one! It was a very homey environment for Hiro and she came home all tuckered out. Kate also sent home a personalized bag of treats! I am glad we found them!
Kate and Ed were great with Lucky! He had a great time, and was happily exhausted when he got home. They make some treats that I would highly recommend to anyone!!!
We left Wil for an entire week this time and we found a very happy and tired dog when we got back. Ed sent emails with pictures every day to keep us posted on how Wil was doing. We're very happy with the experience.
We had a wonderful experience leaving our 1 yr old dog with Ed. We received emails every night with a summary of Wil's adventures and pictures. He seemed very happy and at home when we picked him up and came home completely wiped out from all the playing. Will definitely use them again.
I am so happy we found Kate & Ed! Timber had a wonderful stay. They took such good care of him, he came home a very happy, relaxed dog. They took him for morning and afternoon walks, and gave him a bath during his stay. I would highly recommend them, and we will be using them again in the future when Timber is unable to travel with us. I appreciated the daily updates on his condition, and thank you for the special bag of treats you sent home with him!
This was our third time leaving our big, baby great dane with Kate and Ed. You cannot find a better pet sitter than they are! Our dog loves the quality time spent there with them. He gets to go on beautiful lake walks and feels completely at home!We feel completely comfortable leaving our big baby with them. It was a great vacation for him!
My dog is so happy with them! They went over,above and beyond when it came to his special diet. They made sure he was happy and eating well. I appreciate them so much!
This was our second time leaving our Great Dane puppy with Ed and Kate. When we pulled into their driveway, our dog was so excited! He got out of car and ran right to Ed! (Which can be quite a scary thing as he is about 140 pounds of Great Dane ) they sent us many pics and updates. Our dog is truly happy with them. They are perfect doggie sitters! We are so thankful!
Our great Dane was well taken care of. We are so happy to have found Kate and Ed! We could see that they really love dogs and took such good care of our dog! You do not have to worry leaving your pets with them. They are kind and knowledgeable. We trust them with our gentle giant.
They were wonderful. Esp on such short notice. Loved all the updates with pics. They treated her like one of their own and even sent home a bag of their homemade dog treats. Great folks. Thanks!
Kate & Ed were great! We booked them last minute during Christmas and they were very flexible in setting up a meet-n-greet beforehand. They took amazing care of my dog: multiple walks a day, all the treats he could want, visits with the neighbors and lots of love. This is definitely a great place to send your dog when you travel. I think my dog had more fun over Christmas than I did!
