About Kathy

I am a dog lover that will treat your dog like my own. This is a home setting with over 1/2 acre that is completely fenced in where your dog will run free and get plenty of exercise and attention. I have over 30 years experience with dogs, love what I do and very good at it. I also do basic training and house train puppies within a week of boarding. We do spend a lot of time out in the yard playing ball, chasing frizbees and just running around playing with each other. However dogs like humans need rest so we have quiet time in the house twice a day. live in a great area for daily walks at no extra cost and if your dog likes hiking, I have a great place right around the corner that is my dogs favorite place in the world...Peters Rock. Your dogs safety is my number one priority and I take every precaution to accomplish that.Meet and greet are mandatory and I do not take any dogs that show signs any of aggression. All dogs must be up to date on their shots and I must receive a copy of them before I will board your dog. Also dogs must have flea and tick prevention and be in general good health. Dogs sleep in the house at night and are always separated when I need to go out. You can go to work or go on vacations and be sure your dog is safe, happy, content and well cared for. Daily pictures and videos will be taken and sent through Dogvacay so you can see your dog is enjoying his/her vacation as well!

Kathy was great! She went out of her way to make us feel comfortable about leaving our dog for the first time. She also sent us pictures and videos while we were gone. Our dog seemed very comfortable there.
Keeva really enjoyed her time with Kathy, and we rested easy on our vacation knowing that she was safe and happy. We got a very cute picture of Keeva where she looked very happy.
We had just moved to Guilford, CT and needed to board our dog, Chloe, for 2 weeks. Kathy was a perfect find. Prior to Kathy accepting our reservation request, we did a meet and greet with Kathy and her dog, Bella, and then went into her backyard to meet 2 other dogs that were doing doggy daycare with her. Then, once we reserved with Kathy, we knew we were in great hands. She has a very large fenced in yard and has several dog crates inside so that dogs can have some alone time. Kathy kept us informed as to how Chloe was doing and Chloe had a great time at Kathy's. I highly recommend.
Our beagle/lab, Tetris, stayed at Kathy's for two days and had a blast. He came back exhausted, either from running around in Kathy's large backyard or playing with Bella and Kathy's other guests, or both. Kathy was extremely responsive and sent regular updates. Already looking forward to the next time we board him!
Our pup had a great time with Kathy. He came home relaxed and happy.
Kathy is the best! My seventh month old Australian Shepherd mix, Cooper, had an absolute blast. Kathy regularly sent videos and photos of Cooper during his three night stay. He played and ran around in the fenced-in-yard so much that he came home completely exhausted (it's nearly impossible to exhaust him!) Kathy was also very prompt in answering any texts or calls. I cannot recommended her enough.
All that we can say about Kathy she was more than we expected our dog Zipper is a rescue pet realy hard to bond with a lil hyper but very lovable he took to Kathy and she to him if there is such a thing as the best of the best she is the best. this is the1st time we boarded him out and let us say how happy we were with Kathy

Kathy did a wonderful job of caring for our mini Australian Shepherds. Both dogs were happy to play in her spacious yard with Bella and friends.
This was our second time leaving our dog with Kathy and, once again, our experience was great!
Kathy was great -- we felt very comfortable leaving on vacation knowing our doggies would be at her home and in her care. Thanks Kathy!
Kathy and her dog Bella clearly love hosting other dogs. My little dog Remy seems to have had a great time. So much so that Remy will soon be having another vacation at their house.
I am so happy I decided to explore dog vacay instead of placing my Rex in a kennel. Kathy took such wonderful care of Rex. He had a great time with Kathy, her pitbull Bella. It was very important to me that I leave him with the right person. I got videos and pictures of him throughout his 10 day stay. This made it easy for me to enjoy my vacation. Now Kathy's Kanine Kare is my puppy's home away from home. We can go away and feel more comfortable. Thank you so much Kathy and thank you dog vacay!
Our experience with Kathy was wonderful! Our beloved, almost 2 year, old Golden Doodle, Tucker has never stayed with anyone but family & I was worried about leaving him for 9 days. After looking into kenneling him, I knew that would not be the right place for him, as he has never been crated before......so my husband found Dogvacay and we found Kathy! From our 1st meeting I felt confident that Tucker would be very happy with Kathy and her sweet dog Bella. It was wonderful to receive updates, pictures and videos from Kathy throughout the week & Tucker thoroughly enjoyed his vacay in Kathy's big, fenced yard with Bella and a few other new friends! Thanks so much, Kathy!!!!! ❤️
Kathy is wonderful. Our dog loves to stay there and she keeps us informed with pictures and notes. She has been flexible while we are moving locations.
Kathy took great care of our 10-yr-old German Shorthair, Clementine. Our dog got along great with Bella, Kathy's Pitbull, and enjoyed the large fenced in yard. We were able to enjoy our vacation with peace of mind and received several updates from Kathy while we were away.
Kathy and her dog Bella were very accommodating to our hectic schedule during our move. Bernie had a great backyard to play in and was welcomed into the house like one of her own. Bernie and Bella got along very well. I highly recommend Kathy!
Kathy watched my dog, Roxie, while we were away for 8 days and she was awesome! Roxie enjoyed running around in Kathy's large back yard, going for daily walks and playing with Bella. Roxie needed daily medication, which Kathy gave her and also sent me updates during her stay. I would recommend using Kathy and will be using her again myself!
Our dog Jack stayed with Kathy for ten days and had a great time. Bella, Kathy's dog, and Jack had a lot of fun playing together in Kathy's big backyard and hiking at some trails just around the corner from Kathy's house. Kathy was responsive to our phone calls and texts in setting up the meet-and-greet and the reservation for Jack's stay, and she updated us with a picture of Jack and a video of him and Bella playing together while we were away. She was also very willing to feed Jack his special diet that involves mixing dog food with "people food". I definitely recommend Kathy (and Bella!) as DogVacay "hosts."
