About Kate

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
To me, a family just doesn't feel quite complete without a dog! I have grown up with dogs and pets in my household all of my life. I love my time spent at home taking care of my puppy, Stella. I am available all day and night since I work from home and would absolutely enjoy spending quality time with your furry friends as well!!
My full attention will be devoted to your dog by actively engaging in walks(don't forget we have a massive fenced in back yard), play time, and rewarding them with their favorite treats! When it is time for naps or bed I will keep them to what they are accustomed to. Such as in bed snuggled up with Stella and I or whatever sleeping arrangements the furbaby currently engages in(crate or doggie bed).

I have deep roots with several rescue organizations around the triangle and have raised pups myself. So regardless if the furbaby needs meds, a bath or just plain love I freely give it. I am use to the pooches that fit in the palm of your hand or those that might require two leashes bc of their size... So you never have to worry when you are away that your pup is safe, happy and feels like they are on a VACAY too...........

Dear Fellow Dog Lovers:

It is such a pleasure to write this letter of recommendation for Kate and the service she provides in her business, BowWow pet sitting.

We have known Kate for eight years now. The first time Kate "met" our Jack Russell Terriers, it was obvious that she had a great affinity and love for animals. She was friendly toward them and they responded in kind.

Kate has taken care of our pets on numerous occasions when we traveled cross county for several weeks or simply away for the weekend. She was diligent in feeding them walking them, and making sure they were safe at all times. In addition, Kate always gave us a full report of our pets' care when we returned from our trips.

We have also witnessed the care Kate gives to her own dog. She walks them to a park several times a day and is highly attuned to their health and nutrition need.

There are not many people in whom we would fully trust to properly care for our dogs in our absence, but Kate is one of them. We highly recommend her services and would be glad to answer any questions about the care she provides.

Sincerley,
Steven and Trish

Kate was amazing with my dog. My pup is very special needs and requires lots of patience and understanding. Kate treated her very kindly and I'm very thankful for it. I would have her sit my dog any time.
Kate is absolutely wonderful to work with- she is very flexible and accommodating. My dog,Lyla was very happy and well taken care of. I would highly recommend Kate.
Kate was wonderful with Dak and he and her spaniel, Stella quickly became fast friends. I would definitely use Kata again.
Kate is an incredible host! Not only did we get picture updates but Spotty came back happy and tired... all signs that a great time was had!
Kate was great!!! My pup can sometimes be a little challenging with his separation anxiety, but it didn't take him long to feel at home with Kate. She obviously loves animals and has a great relaxed way about her that animals love right back on.
She made sure Marty had his meds and sent me pictures to help assure me that he was doing well. I honestly didn't worry one bit knowing that he was well looked after. I'll definitely be calling upon Kate for DogVac in the future and would recommend her highly.

Kate was very accommodating to all requests for Max. She gave me daily updates on how he was doing along with daily pictures. I haven't had any issues with Max since he has been back home. I would leave him under her care in the future.
Our dog, Scooter, loved staying with Kate over the Christmas holidays. She sent daily reports and pics which we really appreciated. Will be using Kate again when we go away again!
Kate made my first dog vacay experience better than I could've imagined. Infact, my dog Parker had so much fun he didn't want to leave! She made me feel at ease knowing I could trust her and that he was well taken care of. I will definitely be taking Parker back to her again in the near future!

Kate and Rodney were awesome with our fur baby! They played with him, cuddled and loved on him. You can tell they really love pet sitting. Our Labradoodle can be quite anxious but he was completely comfortable and relaxed with them during his 3 night stay. It made our trip more enjoyable knowing he was in great hands and having fun, They also sent pictures and updates daily !! These guys are our go to dog sitters. So happy we found them! Thanks Dogvacay...and thanks to Kate and Rodney!!

Kate was great! My boy came back home exhausted. I believe he had a wonderful time with Kate's family. Kate also kept me posted everyday while I was out of town. It's good to know my boy was doing well while I was away. I definitely recommend Kate to anyone who may need to board their pups.

Kate was a great find. Totally convenient location, Maddie loved her large yard and loved that she was rarely crated and lots of human interaction while her family was away. Thanks for taking such great care of our baby.
Have one word to describe
"AWESOME"
Got lots of pictures,
Big fenced-in yard was a plus
She really loves what she does and it shows
Dogs were very happy and tired from all the play they got which was a great thing

Will be using Kate again very soon
Great Experence !!!!
