Boomer, my sometimes overly energetic lab, had a great time during his long weekend at Katie's house. I was running late for my flight, and last minute Katie was able to come pick Boomer up, which was super helpful. Boomer was very excited to meet Katie and you could tell right from the beginning that he would be in good hands. When it was time for me to pick him up he was running around the yard not ready to leave his new friends. Katie did a great job with Boomer and we are very greatful for her kindness, attentiveness, and extra help in picking him up.

I recently went away for a long weekend and left my German Shepard with Katie. This was the first time I'd ever left Linx so I was nervous, but everything worked out great. Katie was very warm and welcoming. It was obvious that she loves her job! While I was away she sent me a few pictures, which put my mind at ease. Linx was clearly having a great time playing in her yard! I ended up having to stay an additional night and Katie was very accommodating. I'd highly recommend her if you're in need of a pet sitter!

Hi, I am writing to share my experience with Katie who has given exceptional care to my dog since June 2014. When I first met Katie, I liked her right away because she had a calm demeanor and got right down to Hunters level to greet him.  He seemed very comfortable with her.  She also listened to my concerns and was willing to work with me to meet all of Hunters needs.
In the year that she has worked for me, I have found her to be extremely reliable and trustworthy. She is also very accommodating with changes in schedule and always returned my phone calls promptly. 
I feel she truly cares about animals and is genuinely concerned about their well-being.  Hunter and I would highly recommend her as a pet sitter.

We're so happy to have Kate taking care of our dog Mushroom! When we met at her home for the first time, we could tell she was immediately completely comfortable and natural with Mushroom, and made him feel right at home. One thing that makes Kate's place really special is the spacious, completely fenced-in yard, perfect for our energetic 70-pound pup to play in! And one thing we noticed about Kate's great instincts for dogs--on our first visit, right after Mushroom played in the yard for the first time, without us saying anything, she could tell that he might be thirsty, so she courteously offered him a bowl of water, which he happily drank right up! We appreciate the nice photo updates too, and know we can enjoy our (first!) extended trip away from home coming up knowing that Mush is in great hands!
Katherine was a HUGE HELP and was able to accommodate my last minute request on Christmas Eve. She was such a sweetheart and treated my puppy Roguey like he was her own. She uploaded pictures throughout the day. He had a blast and felt right at home. Katherine even gave him a Christmas gift - a new toy and vest. I was very impressed by her warmth and professionalism. I have used her services since and she has yet to disappoint. We will definitely be back.

Thank you Katherine :)
Katherine was a great DogVacay sitter/host! She was very flexible with my constantly changing schedule and is conveniently located 10 minutes from me. The boys seemed to love her and enjoyed their time there from the photos I received, plus they came home exhausted and fell asleep instantly! I would definitely use her again and would recommend her to anyone local.
