About Kate

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! :o)

Mission:
It is my personal mission to provide flexible, affordable, and quality pet care to you and your family whether you are leaving for work, vacation, or deployment!

Location:
We live on Ft. Carson. We have a fenced in backyard and access to beautiful walking trails and a dog park. I work conveniently from home and will not have to leave your pet unattended for more than 2 hours at a time. We have a 13-year-old Australian Shepherd who keeps to herself and three cats. Boarding overnight will be considered on a case by case basis.

Experience:
I grew up with a large menagerie of animals (dogs, cats, farm animals, small mammals, birds, and fish). I have a Bachelor of Science in Wildlife Ecology. From 2008-2012 I worked at a wildlife rehabilitation center caring for and handling/releasing various species of mammals (deer, raccoon, coyote, fox, bobcat, etc.).
From 2012-2014 I was the curator of the education animals at the Rock Eagle 4-H center (reptiles, amphibians, insects, arachnids, birds of prey). I am proficient in animal husbandry and operant conditioning training. I am happy to assist you, your family, and your pet with basic obedience training. I have also been horseback riding since I was a small child and can assist with horse care, exercise, or training.

Looking forward to meeting you!

Best,
Kate
