About Kathy

52 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have been dog sitting since the age of 8. I volunteered for over 20 years, breeding, raising, and training puppies for a national service dog organization, working with a rescue group, and helping out at the local shelter and humane society. In addition, I have done therapy work with my dogs.
Rita and Charlie, my current dogs, love to have guests, and are waiting to make new friends, and share their ideal dog space. We live in a single story home with no stairs, so our old and blind friends are safe. Our 2 acre yard is completely fenced, with a 5' fence that is also buried to prevent the diggers from escaping! When the weather keeps us inside, we have lots of space to move around in. We are allowed on the furniture and beds.
Kathy has retired and wants to welcome more dog guests into our home to keep us company, and keep us all out of trouble. She was a therapist in the schools, and has plenty of experience with special needs dogs (& kids)! She would love to provide a safe and secure home to host your dogs, where they will enjoy our relaxed and laid back setting, while getting lots of hugs and snuggles.
Please note that I charge by the 24 hours, not by the night. So a Friday through Sunday visit is charged as 2 nights plus a day of day care. As I am getting older, I very much appreciate couch potatoes, non-jumpers, and non- barkers!

Kathy has been working with dogs ... I think forever. She's dealt extensively with puppies (being a breeder of service dogs for Paws with a Cause), so she understands how to keep a dog healthy and safe. Not only does she know the ins and outs of dog health, she has the patience of a saint - especially when it comes to puppy shenanigans. Kathy is one of those who also has a tender spot for older dogs - taking special care of the geriatric set, and even adopting a number of homeless older dogs over the years that have needed special medical attention and physical help. Who does these things? Someone who truly, deep down loves dogs. There is nobody that I know who is more dedicated to the emotional and physical well-being of her charges than Kathy.

Our 2 dogs spent 2 weeks with Kathy. They had a great time and we got regular emails with photos. Everyone was happy!
Kathy was an outstanding provider. Sugar loved being at her house with all her dog friends. Would highly recommend her for doggy vacations.
Our dog was very well cared for. Good setup and great sitter.
