About Kaitlin

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
When I moved to the city 7 years ago I became a volunteer foster for three non profit local dog rescues and have fostered over 25 dogs from all walks of life, behavioral backgrounds and breed ranges. Because of this experience I am well versed with administering medication, training and dog behavior.

*I only accept ONE dog at a time (or two from the same family) so your dog will get tons of individual attention, while also ensuring not picking up any illnesses from other dogs or being apart of any dog fights

Your pup(s) will live like one of the family (couch and bed cuddles permitted). I will accept dogs of all ages and sizes with no breed restrictions. I have experience with dog that are nervous and have behavioral issues (although I cannot accept dogs with aggressive behavior for liability reasons or dogs that are not over 80% house broken when sitting in my home- be honest please).

By request I can offer training services during walks (heel, wait, ect) and during sitting (crate, commands, ect).

I live in an English basement so it is easy to give your dog(s) multiple walks and potty breaks per day. Yay no high rises and having to wait to get outside! I'm located right on embassy row across from Nora Restaurant on the Kalorama/Dupont border, the neighborhood has multiple green parks, dog parks and quiet tree lined streets to please any doggy personality.

*Flexible schedule so your pup will likely never be alone for more than a few hours.
*Texting updates including pictures on how your pet is doing and if requested potty updates on regularity and consistency.
*Complementary doggy treats
*A toy box full of fun doggy toys and bones of all varieties
*Pick up/Drop off services offered at additional rate
*Dog concierge service if your dog needs anything special picked up during their stay

Kaitlin has petsat for my two dogs on several occasions. She is very reliable, always very clean, and most importantly is wonderful with all dogs. I know my dogs are in good hands with her!

Kaitlin clearly has a lot of experience with dogs. She was totally unfazed by our 5 month old pup, and was even very understanding when he had some behavioral slip-ups. She was responsive and sent us detailed daily updates with pictures. It's obvious our pup got a lot of TLC and was rarely alone. We would definitely use Kaitlin again!
Kaitlin was a great host for our two cocker spaniels. They vary in age and activity level (one is 12.5 years, and the other is 9 months) but she was able to watch both of them and follow their schedules. We got daily text updates with photos and she was very responsive leading up to the stay. We will definitely use her again in the future. Thank you!
Kaitlin was a wonderful host for Archie! He came home from daycare tired and happy. Would definitely hire her again.
Kaitlin did a great job with our 1 year old mini dachshund, which is not always an easy task! Thanks, Kaitlin!
Kaitlin was a wonderful host! She has years of experience with all types of dogs and you can tell how well she understands their behavior. I felt super comfortable leaving my dog Barrett in Kaitlin's care and she gave me plenty of updates. Her basement is a perfect temporary home for your pet. Barrett had an AWESOME time and I will definitely be using Katilin in the future.
Kaitlin was great with Buckeye, our three year old Chocolate Lab. She sent updates each day with a photo so our family could connect with our "puppy". Buckeye took to her very well and we felt like he was comfortable and happy the whole week. She was also very accommodating with drop off and pick up, making the whole experience fabulous for everyone. We will use her again and recommend her to our friends.
Kaitlin hosted our dog Bruno for a long weekend and we will book with her again without reservations. Simply put, she went above and beyond my expectations- On top of sending multiple updates each day, including super cute photos, she answered all of my questions before the drop off time, came over for a quick meet and greet and took Bruno to the groomers during his stay. I also like that she hosts other pups and Bruno had a chance to be socialized in a different way. Her explerience and confidence with dogs makes her a wonderful dog sitter. I highly recommend!
Kaitlin did a great job watching over my pup, Ella. She responded to my million questions, gave me consistent updates, and took great care of Ella. They went on many walks and adventures together, ensuring Ella didn't miss me (too much...).

She lives in a clean home near great parks, it was the perfect match.

I highly recommend Kaitlin and will be using her again.
Kaitlin was amazing! She was very responsive and sent multiple updates with pics of Henry throughout the day. She even taught him a new trick! Henry was sad to leave her place! He came home very tired because he had so much fun with her. I highly recommend Kaitlin to anyone who wants their dog to have plenty of one on one attention and affection. Will be using Kaitlin's services again for sure!
