About Kathleen

My husband and I have been a dog lovers all of our lives!

We know how hard it is to find someone to watch your little one while you are away on vacation. It's easier when you have a larger dog but when your dog is a small breed, the difficulty level rises!

We will only watch small dogs, and only one dog at a time. (If you have two small dogs, arrangements may be possible on a case by case basis) Your little one will get showered with love, care and attention during their visit.

In February 2013, we lost our most precious boy, McDuff our beloved Westie. He was 15 years old. We rescued him when he was 2 years old from a horrible situation of abuse and neglect, he came to us with a multitude of health problems that would be a part of him for the rest of his life. We feel so blessed that we had 13 wonderful years to spend with him and provide him with all of the health care, love and companionship he needed so very much. We miss him so terribly.

My husband and I share our home with Duffy's "little sister", our little 7 pound, 4 year old Yorkie, Sammie Belle. She misses her "big brother" just like we do.

Our little Sammie Belle is also a rescue furry baby. We adopted her from a breeder that was no longer able to care for her dogs. She has been living with us for 2 1/2 wonderful, fun filled years, and we are looking forward to many many years yet to come!

We believe that every dog deserves a wonderful home with family that loves them as unconditionally as they love us back. I've adopted the motto of the Animal Rescue Site: "Until they ALL have homes" as my personal motto.

We are happy to open our home to your little one. We understand the needs of little dogs and are especially well versed with Westies and Yorkies!

I am a stay at home dog mom who's been around the block a few times and understands dogs! My husband and I live in a very nice 55+ retirement community in Federal Way, WA.

Living in a small, quiet and gated community offers lots of safe dog walking opportunities.

I understand dog parents that call several times a day for updates and want pictures....I myself am one of those doggie parents too!

You can count on us to care for your sweet little one!

It was our first time using any petsitting services and DogVacay - previously our pet have only stayed with close friends... but a few weeks ago we booked a stay with Kathleen for our seven year old West Highland White Terrier - Coco. The overall experience was great! Kathleen was very responsive and accommodated to our dog dietary needs... She took great care of him and kept us posted throughout his stay... Coco also enjoyed playing with her 7 year old Yorkie. We will definitely consider booking again with Kathleen.
I'm afraid this was not a successful or positive experience for myself or my pug, Deni. In my opinion, She appeared to me to be short tempered and easily agitated. She refused to talk to me on the phone when I had concerns and I believe she failed to exercise him, take proper care of his ear infection (it was raging when I picked him up) and it seemed he couldnt wait to come home.
I kept our text conversations for my records.
Domino had so much fun with Kathleen!!! Shared photos were awesome to keep us posted of all of her fun!!
