About Katharina

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there!

I am a mature student living near the U of Calgary. I want pet-sit because I absolutely love pets of all kinds and I'd like to make some extra income. I grew up on a farm with 2 dogs but after about 3 years one passed away and the other now belongs to my cousin who has lots of space for her to roam. When I was younger I would dog-sit for neighbors as an after-school job and I have always done it casually for friends and neighbors since then. I live in a small apartment which is why I don't currently board pets or have pets of my own.

I walk a lot so I would ensure your dog would get the exercise that he/she needs! I have classes in the mornings on weekdays, but afternoons and evenings are flexible. Meeting the pet prior to boarding would be good but not totally necessary if I get some info beforehand.

I've never had experience with dogs recovering from surgery or those that require medication.

(Also, I don't currently have a photo of myself with any pets.. so enjoy the photo of a Chameleon I stumbled across in Uganda!)

Katharina Zacharias is a very trustworthy, kind and loving young lady. She stayed in my home and kept my furbabies for me when I was away on vacation. She is a very mature and capable and handles herself very well. My pets loved her and she was so good with them. Gave them lots of love and attention. I felt totally confident that my pets were in good hands while I was away.

Katharina watched my Takoda, part Husky, part Akita, two very needy breeds but I wouldn't have it any other way! I was quite hesitant to leave as he has extreme separation anxiety and will not eat or drink, however I had to go and heard great things of Katharina from a coworker whose used her before so my decision was made. We had a trial 30 minutes at a park and he seemed to warm up very quickly to her so that gave me a little more peace about leaving. After coming home he was still the same weight and had not stopped eating or drinking the entire two weeks! She kept up with his high energy level as well as gave him enough attention to satisfy his needs. I recommend her to everyone! I've already planned my vacation to Italy and have no fear to leave my Koda bear with Katharina. I'd give her 5 stars!

Katharina will be a great pet sitter. She has taken excellent care of my cocker spaniel, and she has also been responsible for taking care of my home when I was away so I know her caring abilities first hand. She is a very responsible young woman who is accountable and she would be very reliable, on time, and would take care of all things she is responsible for.
Beyond this and even more important I think is that Katharina has a warm heart, is caring and kind, and extremely giving. She would go above and beyond to give good attentive loving care. She would get along well with the owners, and she is excellent taking care in all of her relationships, but she would also love the animals, and take good care of them. Katharina is a social worker, and prides herself on taking care of anyone in need. She has a long history of volunteer service, was an excellent social work student who won awards for her academic achievements, and as well she has history working in the service industry (she worked for the women's shelter, and overseas with Douglas College community work in Africa).
You couldn't get a better employee and I would highly recommend her as an employee for your business! She's an amazing young woman.

We had Katharina taking care of our pets at home for a week while we where on vacation. We felt very comfortable with her, she is very warm and responsible. Everything was perfect, she took very good care of them and we are very happy to have found her. We will ask her to take care of them for our next vacation for sure!

Kat looked after my two active, medium sized dogs and stayed at my place while I was on vacation for a week. She took great care of the dogs and the house and I had peace of mind knowing she was there. Kat was very reliable and responsible and genuinely loves dogs. I would definitely have her back again to dog sit and would recommend her services highly!
