About Katy

I am an empty nester working from home. My now married daughter & I have done pet sitting in our home for the past 6 years. Now that she has moved I miss having dogs around to play with & love.

We have a large grass front yard with plenty of room for the dogs to run & play. They also have full access of the house. I will never have more than 2 other dogs here at one time so I will be able to give them plenty of individual attention.

My grandpuppy Akela is only here occasionally to visit during the day. She is very friendly & playful. She always loves having a playmate when she is here.

I have cared for all kinds of dogs over the years, big, small, old, young & I love them all just like they were my own.

Jackie had a great day!
Again, Katy was pawsome!
As usual, Snowflake seemed to thoroughly enjoy her stay with Katy. We really appreciate the attention she receives due to her special needs(blindness)
Katy is very experienced but beware of cunning parrot :)
Katy was Great! Her home is very dog friendly and Katy is very attentive to Sadie and the other pups there. It was 'Playland' for doggies! Lots of room to run and play. Sadie had a great time, came back relaxed and happy. Katy also sent pictures, which is always nice to see a happy dog when you're away!
Thanks Katy!

Shiloh had a wonderful time at Katy's! He loves playing with the toys and having another dog to play with. Shiloh was fortunate that his brother was there at the same time. They had lots of playtime. Thanks Katy!
Kaaty is always pleasant and welcoming when I take or go to pick up Toby.
I never worry when I leave Toby with Katy. She is allways very welcoming and interacts with him as soon as we get there.
Our pets had a great time during their stay. Definitely recommend.
Katy was super flexible with our last minute request. Shiloh had a great time and came home happy! Thanks Katy!
Katy C. is a warm and caring dog lover. She treated Snowflake who has special needs due to her blindness with great affection. We would definitely recommend Katy and have plans to use her services again.
Katy took such great care of our Sophie while we were gone! It was so great to know she was in good hands and had a great play area to keep her busy!! Glad to know we can count on Katy!!
When I went to pickup Toby on Monday morning he was glad to see me but he also was happy. I like leaving Toby with Katy as she is a very caring person and gives Toby lots of love and attention.
When I called her on Moday morning to ask if it would be OK to pick him up a little later she said that would be fine. I do not worry when Toby is with Katy.

Our Dog's host Caty was awesome! This is not the first time we have used her and our little Dog Sumba is always Happy staying with her:) Thanks Caty so much!!!
One word...PAWSOME! Katys super nice, great location, great "play" area outside for my little girl. Thanks Katy for your hospitality and we'll definitely be back.
Very Good....................we were very pleased
Everything was great. Pepper loves her second family now.
We did a meet-and-greet first. Katy was very friendly and made me feel at ease. So when I dropped Sasha off for her stay, she felt comfortable with the location and knew it is a safe place. My last memory of her before leaving was her bouncing into the house without even a glance back. She had a super fun time and came home exhausted with a huge smile on her face. We would definitely use Katy's services again.

Katy and her husband are clearly animal lovers and they make their home inviting for the lucky pets who stay with them. Katy sent a lot of photos and was very responsive to any questions I had on Lola's well-being while we were away. I would definitely use Katy again.

This was Louie's first time away from home in the two years we have had him - Katy took such great care of him - he came home healthy and happy. She truly cared about his needs, and made sure he felt completely at home. As long as she is caring for dogs - she is my choice to replace us when we go away.

"Just Like Home" is the perfect way to describe my Boy's experience at Katy's. He can't wait to go back! Katy gives him all the love and attention he could ask for, and he loves the spacious back yard play area. At night, he cuddles up with his buddies and enjoys a quiet, safe snooze. Simply a wonderful experience!

Katy is always very welcoming, and Toby seemed happy when I went to pick him up. I left him with her again this morning and Toby seemed happy enough to be left there.....Ann Royse
Katy ws there waiting for us, and she was happy to see us. Toby seemed to be very much OK when I went to pick him up and I feel much more compfortable leaving him for the 3 seeks later this month. Tahnk you Katy
Caty is always awesome with Sumba! He loves playing with the dogs when there & happy!
This was our first time using DogVacay and the first time leaving our 9 month lab/border collie mix with a stranger. We couldn't have been happier with the whole experience - we did a meet and great and instantly felt at ease with leaving our pup with Katy for 3 nights. She was flexible with our drop off time and later pick-up (9 pm). A few hours after dropping off our dog, it seemed that our pup would not be able to get along and stay for the weekend, however Katy was extremely flexible and provided a solution so that we could still get on our flight and not worry about a caretaker for Jax. Luckily, it worked out and he had a great time and even got to go on a walk during his stay. He was so tired from playing that he slept the entire day after getting home. Thanks, Katy, we hope Jax can have another "dog vacay" in the future! And special thanks to her husband, Steve for being patient and working with Jax!

Katy was great. Chester had a great time. He will be staying again with Katy in June. I would definitely recommend Katy to others.
I cannot even begin to tell you how happy we are to have found Katy to take care of 6 month old puppy Max. It is the 1st time that we have left him so I was worried about finding a perfect spot for him while we were gone for the week. As soon as I met Katy at the meet and greet, I knew I had nothing to worry about, her love for dogs was very evident and I knew he would be well taken care of !!
She has a large yard and Max and her daughter's dog Akela were instant best friends with lots of room to run and play. Loved the messages and pictures that she sent letting me know how things were going. She definitely makes her visiting dogs feel at home and a part of her family.
We will definitely be using Katy again, can't say enough good things about her!!

Katy was a great host. Olli now has a home away from home when visiting Dana Point.
Our dog boarding experience with Katy was wonderful! We have been using Petsmart since he was a pup several times a year and he tends to shake when going in. We thought it would be nicer for him to try boarding within a home. Katy was wonderful in taking care of his needs and giving him the love & attention he desires and not being locked in a cage.
Thank you Katy for taking good care of our Dog(our baby)!!!

Katy was just great. Our dog, Bailey, has huge separation anxiety, and Katy handled him so well, giving him the attention he needed, especially since this was his first time ever being separated from us. She is very calm and good with all of the other dogs she was watching as well.

I was so relieved when I met with Katy for the first time as I was going to be leaving my little girl for over 2 weeks and was worried about how she would be while I was away as I'm 8 months pregnant and she has become very clingy. Katy put my mind at rest at our meet & greet and I could see that Maggie would be welcomed into Katy's home and treated as one of her own.

When I dropped Maggie off for the trip she ran into Katy's garden and started playing with the toys and settled herself in straight away, I don't think she even noticed when I left she was having that much fun! Maggie stayed with Katy for 2 weeks and when I picked her up she was definitely pleased to see us but was still enjoying being at Katy's and didn't look in any hurry to leave!!

Maggie can be a little high maintenance at time and Katy did a wonderful job of taking care of her and loving her while we were away - I would highly recommend her to anyone out there looking for a caring and loving home for your pooch while you are away!!

Katy was a great great host for my little BLACK. When I showed up to get her at 10pm( which was not a problem) black was sleeping with her hubby. I felt like she was loved while I was away. Black was also kissing Katy goodbye which made me feel black was comfortable in her home. I received several photos of black why I was on my trip. I will definitely call Katy again when we go out of town.

Katy was so friendly and welcoming, it just felt like a natural fit for us. We took our doggie, Moxie, over for a Meet n Greet and he was so comfortable in Katy's home. Her daughter's dog, Akela, is such a sweetie. Katy made us feel very at ease and being our first time leaving Moxie with a stranger, she explained everything to us very clearly. She took great care of Moxie and if we need, we will definitely use Katy's services again. Thank you, Katy!!!

Katy C. was great! I was very reassured that my Maltese-mix, "Milo", was in her care, while on a long vacation. She spoiled him, just right!
This was the first time Katy watch Skipper and Dolly. I was very satisfied and plan to have Katy watch them again. She was very loving and knowledgeable.
Katy is wonderful with Chloe. We were so lucky to find her!!
Katy is an awesome lady who really cares for the dogs she watches. Chloe has major anxiety separation and Katy and her family made Chloe feel really welcome in her home !
The hardest part of me taking a trip is finding someone that will take care of my dog as I do!
My dog, Deuce is EVERYTHING to me! I knew that locking him in a kennel or boarding him in a confined space was NOT an option! When I met Katy and visited her beautiful home which has a perfect yard (both front & back) and great family, my mind was put at ease that Deuce would be well treated and exceptionally cared for! Katy went above and beyond making sure that Deuce would be in a loving and secure home while i was away. I am looking forward to booking a trip in the near future as I already know that Katy will be my #1 person to take care of my Deuce!

Katy was great. She was able to take us on very short notice and gave great attention to Lacie. I would definitely recommend have her watch our little one again.
I was very nervous about leaving Cooper with a "stranger" for 4 days, but that changed once we had our Meet-n-Greet. Katy was very warm and caring, as was the rest of her family and I immediately felt at ease. So did Cooper! He ran all over the yard, which he didn't normally do with people and dogs he doesn't know. Katy sent several pictures over the course of his stay, and it seemed each day Cooper got more and more comfortable. I worried about his eating and drinking habits. Normally he grazes or just doesn't eat, yet while he was at Katy's he ate great and is now on a set schedule! I could not be more thankful for that. He has also become VERY comfortable in his crate, which he wasn't before. I would recommend Katy to anyone, and will definitely be using her again!!

My puppy Max is 5 months old and loves going to Katy's. He has so much fun playing in her big yard and hanging out with Akila. We couldn't be more comfortable leaving our dog somewhere while we are on vacation.

Katy is so sweet and loving towards Max. I know that he is her #1 priority and gives him so much attention. She is so good about giving him his eye drops and also making sure he is happy and comfortable at all times. She even gave him a little baby pool to hang out in on a really hot day! Katy is the best pet sitter out there and I feel so lucky to have found her. Also - she is very accommodating. We had to change our plans a few times and she was able to work with our schedule. Can't beat that! Thanks Katy!! Max loves you so much.
