About Kathleen

31 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
(In looking back over our heartening "reviews" in our first year, I am so grateful for the experience of meeting so many kind, interesting people and their beloved pets. I know that entrusting one's dearest companions to someone new can be worrisome. So I want to express my gratitude to all the wonderful owners and their fur babies, along with the dedicated staff at Dog Vacay!)


Individualized, attentive, trusted care. 30+ years experience of quality dog ownership, also kitties. Personal walks along the lake drive a block away (good weather) or in a quiet neighborhood otherwise. Guests usually accompany us on car outings if enjoyable for them. Individual attention with maximum of 2 visitors, unless same family. Interesting, fully fenced native plant yard. A separate kitty friendly place if needed Our typical walks are 1.6 mi, more or less depending on your request, pet's comfort, bad weather,

We have a calm, quiet environment, so if your pet enjoys lots of stimulation and chasing others, a better fit would be a DV daycare home where there are several friends around with continual activity. My guests do receive much personal attention and interaction; return guests always show their owners they are very happy to return.

Excellent ball/toy throwing skills (owner, :-), attention to special needs/requests, Lots of care to become comfortable. I am also an RN and open to special needs of visitors. I do not typically crate. Daily updates My guests may often enjoy a brush, comb or Furminator session.

Please note- I cannot accept very large dogs or those whose leash manners are not reliable (after my recovery from broken hand caused by a dear, very large pet who was not reliable on leash). Puppies, young dogs must be reliably housebroken or owner be willing to provide belly bands. ( What happens at home is often a whole new thing in a different environment). We don't use digestible chew sticks/bones due to concerns for choking/swallowing and potential for obstruction. My main goal is to provide a safe, happy visit so owners can truly enjoy their own VaCay!

Our experience with Kathleen was outstanding. She is very caring and attentive and our 5 year old dog, Nellie, had a wonderful vacation at her home. The dogs play in the beautiful, fenced yard and go for walks and runs often. Kathleen sent us daily pictures and updates and was very kind to Nellie. It was a comfort to know that, while we were away, our dog was in very good hands with Kathleen. We will certainly bring Nellie to stay with Kathleen, Mina and Ginger again soon.

Kathleen is very friendly and accommodating she allowed a very late drop off and was flexible on the pick up time. We also loved the pictures she sent while the dogs were on vacation. It was amazing that she rode the bicycle with themrunning

Kathleen was absolutely amazing and we could not be happier with how our pups were taken care of. We booked last minute for 2 nights over New Years and the pups got the royal treatment. Kathleen was very responsive and accommodating, and kept us informed and sent pictures of what they were up to. You can tell she adores animals. She has 2 dogs, Ginger, who she rescued within the last 2 weeks, and Mina; they both got on very well with our 2 dogs. Kathleen had her hands full with the 4 of them, and she went above and beyond what I expected. Also, Kathleen's place is very convenient if you are spending some time in Lake Geneva, but want your bff close by. Highly recommend and would not hesitate to go back!! Thank you Kathleen!
