About Kathy

45 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a retired Grandma. I have had dogs in my life since I was 10 years old. I am VERY-MUCH an animal activist. I LOVE ALL ANIMALS, but I have decided to only take care of NON-SHEDDING dogs in my home.

We have a huge fenced-in backyard for your fur baby to enjoy. If you have any special toys that are enjoyed by your pet --- they can enjoy it at my home as well. No different than humans, dogs deserve to be given as much comfort, familiarity and compassion as possible. I enjoy getting to know each dog's specific personality and work with their needs, energy levels, diets, etc. They will be let outside at least every two hours to do their business. I will take your fur babies on walks in order to keep them active and allow them to get the most out of every day.

All dogs must be on oral flea medication. The male dogs that I sit have to be neutered. The female dogs have to be spayed. I have run into the problem of male dogs marking their territory in my home and I can not have that happen.

Please request a Meet & Greet with me either before booking or before the dog arrives! I love to meet the fur babies and get to know them as well as reassure the pet parents that their fur baby will be cared for in a nice environment. In your request, please state what dates you need boarding. Please stick to your drop off and pick up times once the times have been set. If you are going to be late please give me a COURTESY CALL. IF THE TIME EXTENDS PAST 1:00 P.M., NO MATTER WHAT TIME OF DAY PREVIOUS TO THAT YOU DROP YOUR FUR BABY OFF YOU WILL BE CHARGED THE DAYCARE PRICE FOR THAT DAY WHICH IS $20.

Daycare times are from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Fur baby pick ups after 5:00 p.m. are charged a full day rate of $30.00.

I will welcome your fur baby into my home and will take care of him/her as my own. You can feel completely relaxed leaving your sweet baby with me.

Working with Kathy was great . She took very good of corky he was so happy with her and her dogs that when I went to pick him up he didn't want to come home LOL. I would recommend her to anybody else that need a sitter for there pets she took very good care of him . She will be baby sitting corky in the future
Kathy was wonderful! My dog is not used to being around other dogs on a day to day basis and she introduced her dogs one at a time and let mine become comfortable with each one. Our dog likes to be outside and she has a great backyard. She took great care of Sandy and we truly appreciated it.
We used Kathy for the first time last weekend. At our meet and greet I could tell that Kathy was going to be a great sitter. They also have a very large and well groomed yard. Kathy and her husband Scott were very responsive and personable. She was happy to see my boys when I dropped them off and made me feel very comfortable when I left. She sent me pictures with cute little comments. When my boys returned home they were healthy, happy and exhausted! I could not have asked for a better experience. We will be using them again in the future!!
