About Kathleen

22 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are an animal loving household! We have enjoyed sharing our lives with multiple pets, mostly rescues, though the years, including up to 4 dogs at a time, cats, guinea pigs, hamsters, cockatiels and parakeets, a rescued duck and fish, frogs and turtles. Currently we have 2 small dogs, a Bichon and a rescued Morkie (Maltese/Yorkie).

We have lovingly cared for older and sick pets. Our home is a rancher with only 1 to 2 steps to our sunken family room and the outside, perfect for older pets and puppies!

We have a very large, fully fenced yard, with a self-latching gate between the house and the quiet, end of a cul-de-sac street. We do have an in-ground pool in a separately fenced yard. (But any water-loving dogs that like to swim are welcome to join us, as our retrievers used to do years ago.)

We have responsibly cared for the pets from 4 families over the past 5 years, when they were away on multiple vacations, and could provide fully satisfied references.

We require that all boarded pets be fully vaccinated, as our pets always are. We do not accept aggressive pets, and if any pet shows aggressive behavior while staying with us, it will be kept separated from other animals in the house and yard.

We will care for your special needs pets, administering medicine on schedule, caring for wounds or surgery recovery, giving special assistance to older dogs or anxious pets, and offer continuity of your training methods for puppies.

Your beloved pets will be safe and loved in our home!

This was our first experience with dogvacay and pet sitting. It took over a year for us to try this as our two dogs are precious to us. I needed to book an out-of-town hotel that did not accept pets. I carefully reviewed each candidate and decided that Kathleen looked the best. I was so full of doubt. My dogs had THE BEST TIME with Kathleen. She texted photos and periodic updates. My dogs were happy and in wonderful shape upon pick-up - better than boarding at the vet's office. She also was very flexible and accommodating when dropping off and picking up. The hilarious part is I'm really bad about brushing my dogs' teeth. I had their equipment in the bag and had to stop myself from bursting out laughing when she reported she had brushed their teeth. 5 Stars! Thanks Kathleen - we loved you.
Kathleen did everything we hoped for to keep Maxwell in a friendly loving environment. We will certainly be calling on her services again. The updates and photos were a nice touch.
My dog Chase had a wonderful vacation. She played and was well taken care of by the entire family. I was at ease the whole time and was given updates and pictures of her experience. I will definitely come back to Kathleen and her kind family if I ever need boarding again. Thank you so much for making it a great experience. You are the best!
Kathleen and her husband were very friendly and welcomed my dog into their home. I received pictures and updates on his well being during the week of his stay. I felt very comfortable leaving him in their care.
Kathleen and her family recently cared for our Declan while we went on vacation. They made our dog feel like part of their family and the texts and photos she sent made it possible for us to enjoy total peace of mind. We feel like we have found the perfect home for our doggie when we go away!
Kathleen went above and beyond in providing a friendly, safe and fun environment for our Declan on his first overnight in her home. She sent texts and photos that enabled us to feel comfortable while also letting us see that Declan was having a blast. In fact, our doggie insisted that we book our vacation so that he can enjoy his own fun escape with Kathleen and her family! And we already have!
Kathleen and her entire family (including her dogs) were welcoming, affectionate and loving towards my golden retriever, Baci. She sent me texts, videos and kept me informed on how he was doing every day, and it looked like he LOVED being there. He was even allowed to lay on their couch. There was plenty of room in the backyard especially built just for the dogs to run and play. I would definitely book Kathleen again.
