About Kathy

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are not taking any new dogs at this time so we can concentrate on our regular clients. We offer a safe & cozy canine R&R for your most cherished companions in our STATE-LICENSED home while you're at work or play. Our dogs have a large, fenced-in back yard for chasing balls and burying bones. We provide healthy snacks, on-time meals and a choice of comfortable sleeping arrangements fit for any size dog. Your pet will be pampered with individual love and attention not found in most boarding facilities. There is ALWAYS an adult at home to supervise the dogs especially when they are playing together in the yard. We strive to make our home a special place for your special family member. We do NOT cage or kennel dogs unless their owner specifically requests it. All canine guests have the run of our house which means sitting or sleeping on the furniture including our bed. If your dog is allowed to do it at your home, he or she is allowed to do it at our home! Our B&B welcomes dogs of all ages, sizes and breeds. All we ask is that your dog NOT be aggressive toward people or other animals. Note on our cancellation policy: We have a "no refund" policy that is applied to any and all holidays due to how many clients we have to turn away. Since we do not increase our rates for these special days, we feel it's only fair to do this. The rest of the time, our policy is "flexible" (4 days' notice = 50% refund).

Right from the start with our meet-and-greet, I could tell that George was going to be happy staying with Kathy and her family! I was not disappointed! Thank you, Kathy for making this first stay so fun for George! Debbie B.
Amazing experience! As always!
I was a little nervous to leave my pup behind as I went on trip, after all he is family and I didn't want to just leave him just anywhere. Kathy and Phil were amazing. She texted me updates and sent pictures to let me know how Bentley was doing. I know he had a blast playing with his new friends and felt loved. He was happy to see us when we got back, but I think he was sad to leave Kathy's too. Next time we have to go out of town I hope Kathy has an open weekend so that Bentley can have another fun weekend away.

Kathy and Phil were so good to Harper. She has anxiety when we are away and someone was always with her at their home. This is not just another dog sitter! The organization, professionalism, and care that they give their business really is what makes them stand out from the others! We would highly recommend them to everyone we know!

Our Reece looks to have had an awesome time on her 'vacation'. She loved playing with the other boarding dogs and we are so glad we found Kathy. No more kennel stress or coming home smelly and sick. She was tired, but very very happy. I almost think she was bummed to go home!

Kathy was so great with our puppy, Lucche. It was our first time leaving her for a few days and Kathy made us feel so comfortable. We loved getting the updates and knowing she was in good hands. Not to mention when we came to pick Lucche up she was exhausted from having so much fun playing with the other dogs. Lucche cannot wait to go back.

Kathy took great care of my dog, Lexi, while I was gone and kept me posted with photos and comments. I will use her again the next time I need to board Lexi.
Kathy was wonderful with our dog, Sam! He had plenty to keep him busy while we were away and we are thrilled we found her! We will be back!
Kathy was great. She was very organized and quick to respond back to text messages/emails. I really enjoyed and looked forward to getting my daily photo and text message updates on how he was doing. It was nice to have that piece of mind knowing he was safe and in good hands. He returned home happy and healthy.

Kathy was great, and my puppy had a great time. She was very patient with him even though he's just a baby and is incredibly hyper.
Kathy and her husband were wonderful! We were moving and needed a place for our dogs during the move. Kathy was so reassuring about everything, and our dogs were very happy. It was great to have peace of mind! I would highly recommend Kathy, and will definitely be bringing my dogs back when we need to. SO GREAT to find her!

I cannot say enough about the love and attention my dogs get when they stay here. My Beagle comes home and just doesn't understand why he can't live on my lap (he must live on Kathy's lap). Now my Newfie thinks he's a lap dog but that's just not possible. The minute we pull up to their house, the dogs are excited because they know they get to see there friends.

Cooper and Kaos had a great time. I'm always worried about leaving my grouchy old man Cooper and my really Large puppy Kaos but Kathy was great. She told me Cooper found the lap to snuggle on and Kaos made friends with the other dogs.

We will be back. Thanks Kathy!

Kathy has kept our lab mix twice, both for long weekends. During the meet and greet before our first visit, she gave us a thorough tour of her house and yard and made sure that all the other dogs were in the backyard so that Gracie could go through the house alone. Then we all went into the back yard to see how Gracie got along with other dogs while we chatted. She is licensed and has paperwork with important information. I really appreciated this so that I did not forget to provide any information!

During both of our dog's stays, Kathy has been wonderful about texting updates to us and providing pictures of what Gracie has been doing. She also makes sure that she or her husband are home with the animals at all times. Gracie always comes home happy from Kathy's K9 B&B. We will definitely continue to use her when we need a dogsitter. Thanks Kathy!

Kathy was wonderful in all ways. She is very organized and she promptly responded to all of my messages. She clearly loves dogs and she cared for my dog as if she was her own. She and her husband have a beautiful backyard with lots of room for the dogs to run and play. I absolutely recommend Kathy and will happily take my dog to her again in the future.

Kathy has far exceeded our expectations! We originally booked a 2 dog, 7 day stay. At drop off, our old dog (16+ years) became very sick. We had to change plans quickly - leaving 1 dog with Kathy, and brought Bailey to the hospital. Kathy actually visited Bailey in the hospital, and brought our other dog, Mickey, in to visit as well! This helped with Bailey's recovery, and helped me feel better while on our family vacation. Mickey had the time of his life at Kathy's - playing in the secure back yard with his new furry friends! We will definitely bring both dogs back to Kathy's during our next vacation!

My wife and I recently moved from LA to Denver and needed some last minute dog sitting so we could take a multi day vacation. After reviewing who was in our location and reading the reviews, we we set up a quick meet and greet with our dog RSL (russell), a lab/jack russell mix, and her and her dogs and cats at her house. All went well and we elected to go with Kathy over a nearby, well regarded boarding facility. The lab in RSL makes him very human friendly and we felt that the personal touch we felt from Kathy would benefit our pup who is used to having one of us around at all times.

Besides being quite accommodating with the last minute appointment, Kathy was very professional and made sure emergency numbers were had, she walked us through his day, the treats he may or may not be given (depending on our preferences), and generally made sure we were at ease.

Upon our departure we were thrilled to be greeted at the end of our days with texts and pictures of RSL having just the best time at Kathy's, along with updates on his behavior.

We arrived back in Denver to find a safe and sound dog who was happy as can be.

We highly recommend Kathy for those who feel their pets needs that extra special bit of love while they are gone. While I hate to be away from my big lug, I know going forward that we have a professional, yet caring place for our pets where they will enjoy their days and get that extra pat on the head and scratch behind the ear.

Kathy is an amazing dog sitter! I have 2 dogs one of which has bone cancer and required additional care, which she provided in an excellent caring way! She provided daily messages to me while I was away including pictures of my dogs. Before we went away for my daughters wedding (a stressful situation in itself!) Kathy and I met and discussed in detail the care my dogs would require. I would highly recommend Kathy as a professional dog sitter.

Kathy took great care of our dog while we were away for a week. Unfortunately our dog got very sick, but Kathy took amazing care of her. We were so grateful for all the time and attention our dog recieved while in her care, she treated her as if she were her own. We will definitely use her again and recommend her to our friends and family.

Home away from home for our pup - thankful to have a place like Kathy's to take our dog. Highly recommend!!
Kathy was great! I could tell my dog felt relaxed around her immediately. She is flexible, attentive and loving. Plus, she has her own sweet dogs, so it was a real treat for my miniature schnauzer to have buddies to play with! I will absolutely call on Kathy again!!

I was so pleased with my miniature schnauzer's stay with Kathy! Heidi was immediately drawn to her calm, gentle energy. You can tell she just really loves animals! Kathy has her own sweet dogs, so I knew it would be a treat for Heidi to hang out with buddies. She is very attentive to all the pets. I will absolutely be calling on Kathy again!

This was our 2nd time sending Tillie to Kathy's house while we were away. We are extremely happy with the love and care she received while she was with Kathy. It was good for Tillie to be around other dogs and be able to socialize with them. We are very comfortable with knowing Tillie has a place to go for her vacay. Thank-you, Kathy!

Thanks to Kathy and her husband. It is obvious they love dogs! Thanks for the great pictures and updates through Josie's stay. We will be back.
We found out about Kathy on Dogvacay. We decided to take a last minute ski trip, and Kathy was able to take our dog the day we called her. Tillie is just 4 months and had never stayed at another house. Kathy and her husband were great with her. Our dog seemed happy and well cared for during her stay.They gave us a full detailed report when we picked Tillie up. I would definitely use them again.

Thanks Kathy! Tank can be a little cranky and spoiled and you gave him all the attention he needs. We'll be back soon.
Kathy and her husband Phil were awesome hosts for my doggie. They were very kind and loving and Persia had a blast! I will definitely use their services again and recommend them to anyone looking for a safe and loving home for their baby while on vacation.

Kathy and her husband were amazing. They helped us out with a last minute booking for the holidays (long after all the boarding locations where booked). During the interview, she allowed me to bring my puppy to her home and see how he would react in the environment (especially since he hadn't met cats before). My pup hit it off great with one of her two dogs, as well as she was hosting multiple other pups to keep mine busy. She has good experience with various kinds of dogs and seems to keep them as her focus during the stay. They texted and sent us pics that we greatly appreciated. It was an overall good experience.

Kathy and Phil are clearly dog lovers and take such great care of our Golden Retriever. Because they treat him like he is at home, he is not anxious and clingy when he comes home from Kathy's like he has been when we have used other facilities in the past. Plus, he gets an added bonus of meeting and playing with other doggie friends when he is with Kathy! We have used their services twice now and hope we don't have to take him anywhere else! Thanks Kathy and Phil!

Blondie had a great time playing with Tucker! Kathy was great and we'd highly recommend them. We are so happy to have a fun and loving place for our pup to go when we are traveling.
Kathy took great care of Gracie. She was able to get her to take all of her pills and keep them down which is a feat in itself. I would definitely recommend her!
A big thank you to Kathy for taking such good care of our dog!! Yukon spent 5 days at their home and it was obvious he had been well taken care of. We appreciated the daily communication, pictures, and reports on how our dog was doing. Kathy obviously loves animals and is dedicated to doing a great job.
When you are away from home, it means a lot to have a great care taker for your pet.

I don't leave my sweet dog very often at all but I felt so comfortable with Kathy and her dogs, I would do it again in a second. Kathy is a very caring and knowledgable host. She sent me pictures and kept me updated on how Bailey was doing. I highly recommend Kathy as a host.
