About Katherine

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My partner, Kayley, and I are both excited to share our home with your furry-legged friend(s)! We have had experience with all kinds of breeds and types of dogs through fostering with the different organizations here in St. Louis. We have fostered dogs with Gateway Pet Guardians and Stray Rescue St. Louis for over two years, so as you can imagine, we have met and cared for too many dogs to count! Apart from fostering, we dog sit for many families who are friends of ours and we have always had positive experiences and feedback! We love to send photos and videos of pets because we know how much that means to us when we go on vacation and leave our puppy with a sitter!

We are currently taking a break from fostering so our only pet at the moment is our puppy, Logan! He is part Miniature Schnauzer, part Australian Shepherd. We do ask that if you want us to watch your pets in our own home that they are dog friendly. If they aren't, that’s okay too. Logan has never had a problem with another dog, so if your dog is dog friendly they will surely get along swimmingly!

We will love your furry friend, no matter what breed, age, or temperament they are. We've met shy dogs, friendly dogs, dog reactive dogs, aggressive dogs, and everything in between. We did state that our home can accommodate all kinds of pets. We understand that each dog has a story and they deserve love, no matter what.

Logan sleeps in his crate at night which is in the kitchen. He really likes his crate and since he is still a puppy we like to keep him in the crate when we leave the house for his own safety. If your dog roams the house while you are gone, that's totally fine! We can let them roam ours as well. If you do like them to stay in a crate we can put it in the same room as Logan's or a different room. We can accommodate a lot of different situations and all of your needs!

We also love all other animals. We had a hedgehog for a few years and have both grown up having dogs, cats, fish, hermit crabs, and almost any other pet that you can think of. While we have the most experience with dogs, we feel comfortable and happy caring for any other pet that will fit in with our home.

We love meeting and playing with new dogs and would plan lots of fun activities for your pet. Since we both work from home our schedules are quite flexible and we are able to accommodate any level of activity. We can be active or mellow! We love to just lounge around for the older, more laid-back dogs! If you have any special activities that your dog loves to do, we will do our best to fit that into our schedule. We just want to make everyone’s pet feel very at home during their stay with us!

If you have any questions for us, please don't hesitate to ask!

Contact us for your personal quote! Depending on age and activity level, etc. we may lower or raise the price per day. Also, there are varying prices for multiple dogs! Hope to talk with you soon!

Good communication and no issues at all. Thanks so much!
Katherine kindly took our dog for very last-minute stay over a holiday weekend. She was very prompt and thorough in all our communication and asked good questions to assure the best stay possible for our dog and positive interactions with the other dogs in the house. I had no worries about leaving our little dog in her care, and he came home happy, tired, and relaxed. Thanks, Katherine!
Katherine and her partner were very accommodating and easy to work with. They took great care of our pup. We would gladly use them again.
Katherine was very accommodating with our situation and the times we needed, as we were only in St. Louis for a couple nights and they had not previously met Gus. They were very accessible by text, with pictures and dialogue and made us feel better about not being able to include him in this part of our trip.
Katherine took great care of Gigi on her first stay away from me. She managed Gigi's initial separation anxiety very well and sent pictures which put me at ease. When I picked her up, Gigi was relaxed and ready for a nap. I will definitely be using Katherine's expertise again:)
We took our dog Rowdy for his firat play date. We were thrilled with the videos and pictures sent throughout the day. We know Rowdy had a great time with Logan and Katherine and Kayley! Can't wait for him to go back each week! We highly recommend them!
Monet had a great time! Katherine took very good care of her while we were gone. I also loved the pictures and the updates. Monet is a high energy dog and she was tired when we picked her up. I highly recommend Katherine!
Our dog was well loved and at home with Kat! Nice not to have to worry at all!
