About Kate

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi and welcome to my profile! I'm a single mom of an animal loving 5 1/2 year old daughter that fortunately has my own at home business allowing flexibility in my schedule. We recently had to say goodbye to our beloved furry son/brother. After a decade of being blessed with him we are feeling the void, however are hearts are not ready to start searching for our next member of the family. We are active outdoor enthusiasts. I hike nearly daily. We live on a large property and still have signs of being a dog family (outdoor chain, tennis balls & chuck-it, multiple kinds of leashes, food/water bowls, etc).

I'm a biologist with an animal behavior minor. My fur son was adopted from a shelter that I volunteered at during college. I have experience with training dogs and behavior modification.

Kate was great. She kindly met with me and my dog ahead of time to make sure we were all a good fit. My dog really liked her and he was able to see the home and get familiar. Kate communicated well and I felt like we could check in and ask whatever we needed. We look forward to working with her again.

My dog was perfectly calm and happy when I picked him up. Kate was great!
Kate and Makenna treat Gabby like their own dog. She is so happy when she is there.
We are thrilled we found Kate! You can instantly tell Kate has a special way with dogs. We had no worries about leaving our girl with her. Very accomendating to all our needs. We will definitely contact her again when we need a sitter.
Kate O. is must be a dog whisperer. Kate took great care of our 2 large Labradors, one who is mega-social, but even our shy gal fell in love with Kate.

Day care is always tricky with our gal. She has to decide to go back on day-2, -3....

There's no better proof of Kate's care than that Lily jumped out of the car happily to go to Kate's.

We had a great experience with Kate! She took excellent care of our dog, she communicated well, and we knew our girl was in good hands.
Kate was super accommodating and took great care of little Levi. She and her daughter took him on several adventures and gave him a diversity of fun new experiences. I highly recommend Kate!
Kate is awesome! I will be using her again and reccommending to others.
Kate was fantastic! She watched our two dogs for over a week while we were on vacation. This is the first time we have left our dogs with non-family and we were a bit nervous, but Kate took the time to meet up with us before and get to know us and our dogs and helped us feel way more comfortable. While we were gone she texted us everyday with photos, videos, or little messages about what our dogs had been up to that day. I could tell from the pictures and from when we picked up our dogs that they had a blast - they were calm and happy and well loved. Kate gets an A++ in our book!

Kate is the best dog sitter!! She made my timid dog feel so welcome during her 6 night stay! I felt very comfortable leaving my dog with her, and I especially loved getting picture and text updates every day! Kate is very patient and intuitive with animals. She also demonstrates strong professionalism. I would definitely have my dog board with her again.
