About Catherine

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi!
My name is Catherine, and I live in the Riverdale section of the Bronx. I grew up on a farm in Canada, and have had dogs on and off all of my life. I have been taking care of dogs for friends and relatives quite frequently (including boarding, or just walking) when they're away on business or on vacation. I enjoy doing it so much, that I decided to do it full time, and absolutely love it!

We have a nice sized backyard that is fenced in, with a gate that locks, there's plenty of room to run around, and play fetch!

We also live near a park and walking trails, and a doggy run, so there are a lot of safe places for walks and runs!

We are not a kennel and do not use crates, so please drop off your pet's bed (if they use one) and favorite toys! We strive to help your babies be comfortable and happy while they're with us. We follow your instructions thoroughly, so that their routine is not too changed. We also text you at least once a day, just to keep you posted on your doggy's stay with us.

So if you are making plans that can't include your doggy, and need to board him or her,
please consider us, we love to make new friends :)

We are not far from the Deegan Expressway, so we are on your way if you are heading upstate! Also near route 9

BOOK AHEAD FOR THE HOLIDAYS, especially if your doggy does better without other dogs around.

We are also experienced with older dogs.

We are a smoke free home!

Catherine took care of our old lady, Opie, who was 13. Opie was having stomach issues and pooping inside the house. Catherine dealt with all of Opie's issues with patience and good humor. Thanks Catherine!
I am so happy to have had Catherine care for my dog, Lucy, (who has her issues), when I was on a 2-week vacation. Catherine understood my dog's needs and, I guess, MY issues---She was very reassuring, kept me informed about Lucy's adjustment via email which was much appreciated. Upon my return, I realized that Lucy had enjoyed a vacation as well. She was very calm and happy, might have wanted me to extend my time away so she could play with Catherine in her yard. I have promised Lucy that there will be a return visit!
I highly recommend Catherine to all who need to leave their dogs and want a kind, responsive and responsible sitter to ease their qualms.

Catherine is an excellent sitter. My dog is high energy and she took great care of him. Catherine sent updates with photos to keep us posted. I will certainly ask her again in the future, and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a sitter.
