About Kathy

60 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I love animals! I was born and raised with every kind you can imagine! I've been a dog owner all of my 59 years and consider them to be part of my family. I fostered dogs for the Humane society in Truckee for 2 years and loved it! All my animals have access to every room in the house as well as a very large fenced in yard, and live just steps away from many beautiful trails to explore that make dogs tails wag! So if you have to be away from your doggies, rest assure They will be loved and cuddled and have an amazing adventure on their doggie vacation!!

Kathy took care care with my 9 year old Aussie. She was very kind and I felt in good hands. My dog played well with hers as well. She even opened up her day on New Years so we could ski. We dropped off early so we could hit the slopes and picked up after full days of skiing. She sent photos and updates throughout the day.
I would use her again !!
We cannot say enough about our experience using this site and the great day our dog had at Kathy's house! We honestly did not have high expectations as we booked at the last minute but we were pleasantly surprised at how easy this process was!

Kathy's house was super clean & nice and her 3 year old dog was the perfect play mate for our 3 year old - he had a blast. They took the dogs for a walk in the snow and by the end of the day he was tuckered out - which was great for us to enjoy a dinner out on the town and know that he would just be sleeping at the house instead of having pent up energy:) We also got picture updates throughout the day which was comforting.

We will definitely use this service again and hopefully Kathy will be available.
More than I could have ever asked for! Pictures everyday and 24 hour care for Cujo
This latest stay for our dog Ellie at Kathy's was one of several this past year. Kathy is excellent with our Ellie, and Ellie is always excited to arrive at her home. We love the texts (and photos) we receive showing what Ellie is up to each day! We can recommend Kathy without hesitation, and feel fortunate to have access to the fun and safe environment Kathy provides.
Kathy is wonderful! She took great care of my dog. I felt comfortable leaving him with her immediately. When I picked him up, he was relaxed and happy. I know I was leaving my dog in good hands. I feel very fortunate to have found Kathy! We have another reservation booked!
Kathy and her husband were AWESOME! Between when we made the reservation and when we dropped our two dogs off, one of our dogs had some eye problems and had to have lots (and lots!) of drops given each day. Even though Kathy and Dennis had not done this before, they were willing to take it on. Everything went so great. It was also nice that Kathy sent us text updates with pictures every day. 5 stars!
This is the second time we've used Kathy and she is wonderful. The home atmosphere is calm and loving and we feel very comfortable leaving our dog there. In fact, we'll be using her again when we head East for a wedding.
I am so happy Charly got to stay with Kathy and her dog Gypsy. My dog Charly had a blast. Kathy was attentive to Charly's anxiety and made sure he ate and sent me plenty of pictures which made me so happy. I would definitely have Charly stay with Kathy again! Thanks Kathy!
Kathy and her husband were great! They allowed me to come pick up Eddie during the stay to take him to the lake and then return him. Very responsive, great coordination. Highly recommended!
What an amazing experience we had with Kathy and Dennis. Right from the get go we knew our pups were in good hands. Kathy sent us multiple photos a day (per our request) with the dogs having a vacation of their own. We would give Kathy and Dennis more than 10 stars if we could. Thank you so much for giving our pups so much love!
We love Kathy! We've used her several times and she treats our dogs like her own! She's very accommodating and replies very quickly, as long as we live on Tahoe, she will be our dog sitter!
Working with Kathy was super easy. She was terrific at communicating before our reservation and then when our dog was staying with her she sent great photos to update us. It was our dogs first dog vacay stay and it was great. Kathy really opened up her home too, letting our dog sleep on one of her beds and really spoiling her. We also liked Kathy's close location to Northstar and Truckee which was very helpful in our logistics. Highly recommend Kathy.
Our experience with Kathy was great. Super responsive and great communication. Such a nice person and home. Our dog had a wonderful stay and we would absolutely trust Kathy with future stays.
The visit went flawlessly. Our dog got along great with hers and we will definitely consider using her services again.
We did not end up using Kathy's services for our dog, simply due to our schedule changing. But communications with her was quick, easy and very informative. We plan to contact her on our next trip to Truckee.
Kathy and her husband were great hosts for Sierra. She enjoyed spending the weekend with them and their dog, and was happy and tired when we came to pick her up. Would definitely have Sierra stay with them next time we're in town.
This is the second time that we've left our Frenchie with Kathy and we couldn't be happier. She is really fantastic!

Why leave your dog with Kathy?

-She's able to give one-on-one care to your dog full-time and she really CARES about your dog (no joke)
-Her dog, Gyspy, is a sweetheart and will further occupy/give your dog a playmate
-These guys give you multiple daily updates (texts of photos) so that you know your dog is out walking, playing, or resting comfortably in their home with another dog and humans
-They have a fabulous fenced-in yard
-They were flexible and went out of their way to pick up our dog because we were out of town

Kathy is the one and only person that we feel 100% confident leaving our dog with and we are super selective. Our dog is our child. His life is going to be too short so it should be great (and continue to be great even if we have to leave him for a short while).
Kathy was very loving toward my nervous dog. My dog got comfortable quickly in her new environment
Kathy and her husband were fantastic caregivers for my 130lb dog Lulu. They sent me two photos throughout the day. I was in the area for a wedding and they were extremely flexible with the drop off and pick up times. Lulu seemed to have a great time! If I am ever back in the area and need care Kathy will be my first contact!
So nice not to have to worry about my dog when attending a wedding! Many thanks to my host.
