About Kathleen

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are dog lovers and have always had a dog or several in our home. Our only daughter is 18 and going to school for veterinary medicine. Our dogs are our kids and members of the family. We truly love and enjoy spending time with them and can't imagine life without them. We have a small Dachshund Mix named Jack. He is sweet and loving and gets along with other dogs. He would love to have a playmate. We love all dogs and all breeds are welcome. I would love to learn anything and everything that will keep your dog happy and comfortable.In addition to our very large fenced backyard we live near more than 10 parks, dog parks and walking trails. For a quick and easy short walk our home is in a circle with great sidewalks in the Coventry Park Subdivision in Layton City

Our experience with Kathleen was fantastic, I'm pretty sure our dog would've stayed with her forever!!
Kathleen took great care of my two doggies. She let them play outside everyday in her huge fenced yard. She sent us cute pictures of them every day on our trip. She was outstanding!
Kathleen provided my 2 senior miniature dachshunds a perfect vacation home. She treated them just like they were one of her own! I couldn't have asked for a better sitter while I was away. She was great with keeping me updated about how their days were. In addition, she was very flexible with both the drop-off and pick-up times. I will definitely be using her again!

We loved Kathleen O and her husband taking care of our sweet pup. They were so very awesome, sent pics and texts each day we were gone, and we will definitely use their services again. I'd give her 10 stars if possible!
Kathleen has cared for my black lab, Maya on two different occasions. My feelings are quite mixed. Kathleen is a very nice woman, flexible around clients' schedules and appears to enjoy dogs' company, but I do feel that this care may not be suitable for every pet. The first time seemed alright, her leash was lost but nothing major, she was the only dog at that time. This last time, there were 4 total dogs, including her dog, present upon pickup, as she allows up to 5 additional dogs at one time- in my opinion, I believe this may be more dogs than the medium-sized split level house can handle(maybe summer when the fenced backyard can be utilized more it may be adequate). Maya also came home with purulent discharge in her eye, which was quite evident on her ride home with me and she has never had a history of any eye/health problems or exposure to new dogs. This was not at all mentioned as being noticed by the host. I do understand these things may occur in a pet care environment with multiple dogs, but for it to not have been identified or brought up was concerning as to how well the individualized care is for each pet when there are multiple (3+) dogs under her care. Maya has always been low maintenance but I would hope to entrust her full care in a dogvacay host should something go wrong in my absence, and I do not feel that was the case. In summary, I will likely use another host in the future and would recommend caution in future clients, particularly in busy times.

Our dog seemed to have a wonderful stay at Kathleen's House! I would recommend her without reservation as a great sitter and feel like her home was a safe, warm and loving environment.
My pups felt totally at home! Kathleen did a great job! We would recommend her to anyone for sure!
Kathleen and her family were the best! I was so worried to leave my fur baby but her dog, Jack, helped make my Lily want to visit. She sent pictures and kept me updated with texts and that helped me relax and enjoy my vacation. I could tell she really cared for my dog and I was a little worried she would be kidnapped and I would receive a ransom note

I'm so glad I found Kathleen! We use to take our Bishon Casper to a Doggy Day Care. I much prefer leaving Casper with Kathleen at her home! He is much happier and I don't worry that he is being neglected! Than you so much Kathleen!!
Kathleen was great, she took my dog Miles on a very short notice. Nice backyard and great indoor play area. Thanks Kathleen!
This was the first time I've ever left my Dixie, and Kathleen put my mind completely at ease. She sent me pictures, and I know my dog was well taken care of. She truly loves dogs and I can't recommend her enough!
Kathleen is awesome! She was friendly and willing to "day care" my 4 little dogs for about 12 hours. I will definitely ask her to watch my boys again. She has a WONDERFUL little dog herself and he loved having the company, too.
Amazing experience. Kathleen and her family were so good to my Leo. I was very nervous about leaving my dog for more than a couple of days. Within minutes of talking with Kathleen, and her interaction with Leo, my mind was at ease instantly. Although my Leo missed me a lot, he had such a good time that I think he was a little sad to come home! I will definitely be contacting Kathleen again the next time I go out of town.

Kathleen is amazing. She is so patient with my dog and so willing to help with him in any way she can. I will definitely be using her services again.
I felt comfortable with Kathleen and husband and their dog jack right away at our meet and greet! I could see a pet friendly and loving home where we could leave our grand dog gunner for 10 long days. My husband and I looked forward to updates with photos that were timed just right( not so many that we felt guilty leaving him, but always a joy to see and feel reassured that he was right at home there. He was treated like family (sprawled out on their couch and even allowed to sleep at the bottom of their bed, like he does with us! I have never left any of our pets with anyone other than family and never for that long, but I have already recommended Kathleen to my friend! We feel as though we have made new friends and appreciate the loving care they gave our Gunner!

Kathleen was so good to our dog, Mira. This was our first time leaving Mira and I was so nervous about finding a place that Mira would be given attention and love. I really didn't want to leave her at a kennel and staying at a home seemed like a great alternative. Kathleen exceeded our expectations. Mira was so well taken care of and I loved getting updates and pictures as we were away. Kathleen treated our dog as her own and I wouldn't hesitate at all to take Mira there again.

Kathleen and her family were amazing. I know my dog was well taken care of. He was happy when we went to pick him up and maybe a little bit sad about having to leave. We will definitely use Kathleen again!
Above and beyond in every way!
Kathleen and her family were great for our dog! We had never found a sitter through Dog Vacay before, but Kathleen exceeded our expectations with her care of Sasha. She was taken on several walks, played a bunch with their little Dachsund, and was severely pampered (more than we even pamper her). Overall, it was a great experience with Kathleen and I would definitely recommend her to others.
