About Kathy

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are lifetime pet owners. We have had dogs and cats all our lives. I also had a cockatiel for several months. Jack loves to play fetch in our yard.If it's too hot we play hide the ball or slow fetch inside. Our yard is not fenced but it is surrounded by thick Florida vegetation.

Our 1500 square foot home is usually very quiet.

We provide treats as allowed, a soft comfy couch and lots of love.

Jack is large, but not aggressive. Mother-in-law has a 6 lb Havanese and they get along fine.

I took my service dog buddy to stay with Kathy & Doug. Im a 100% disabled veteran with PTSD and buddy was provided to me to help me on daily basis. This was the first time in our 7yrs together I ever needed a place for him, Kathy and Doug from the first second I showed up for a meet and greet made me feel very comfortable. So I left buddy in there care with there dog jack and they hole time I was gone I never had to check in on him because they were having buddy check in with me via text up dates and pictures of what they were doing walks, dinner, relaxing showing me that buddy was very comfortable. This meant the world to me and they have become part of my extended family and buddy's new baby sitters. Thanks Kathy and Doug and guys were awesome.
Our dogs loved staying with Kathy and Doug. I don't think they wanted to leave! We appreciated the updates and pictures. We'll definitely be bringing them back for a dogvacay!
This was our first experience with DogVacy, and it was wonderful. Kathy B. and her husband made our 2-year-old Golden Retriever feel very welcome, and he loved it there!! He was able to play outdoors in their yard (along with their older lab), and they even took our Buddy to the local dog park. He came home happy, well-fed, and worn out!
You and your dog will enjoy Kathy B's warm hospitality.
