About Kathy

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Considered the 'dog whisperer' among my friends and family, most dogs warm up to me regardless of their breed. I'm a commanding, yet calming presence for them during uncertain situations, whether it's being in my home for the first time, meeting another animal, clipping their nails, bathing them, administering medication or ensuring good daily dental hygiene. Much of my life has been about animals, dogs in particular. I'm in tune with them and their needs and can give them an outlet for their energy, as well as the necessary attention.

I can often be seen riding my bike with a dog, walking them or playing fetch with them along the green belt just behind me (none of which I would do without your consent). Inside play time involves more structure, as I'm into training good indoor behaviors. I believe that a dog should be able to lead a dogs' life and not compete with humans. Therefore, they are not allowed on furniture or to demonstrate other mischievous conduct. I provide a controlled, yet relaxed environment that promotes good behavior while they're on their vacay.

***Weight restrictions only apply to boarding overnight in my home***

Nov 2016
We have known Kathy since she was a teenager, and she has always been the sweetest most giving person. All her life she has loved animals.

For years she kept our dogs for us when we were gone, and we were always comforted knowing that they were being loved like we loved them. In fact, we wish she still lived in San Antonio, because we have not found anyone like Kathy.

Kathy is an excellent pet sitter. She is extremely loving and caring for the pets. She is also very aware if there were to be anything "off" with your pet while in her care. No need to worry when they are in her care. She treats them as if they are her own. She's an extremely friendly and loving person and it shows in her care of pets.

We will have no hesitations booking our little Bean with Kathy again! She was absolutely superb! From the daily updates and pics, I could tell our Bean was genuinely happy and in very caring hands.

Side note... Bean is a rescue chi mix, who is extremely submissive and scared, so we were worried about leaving her. As soon as we walked into the door that first time, Bean took to Kathy and her resident furry. We were also headed overseas, so this was such a relief! Kathy is wonderful!

Cathy is the best! Our little Rosie had never been away from us and Cathy put us to ease with her notes and pictures while we were gone telling us how Rosie was doing. She ate well, slept and socialized with her new friend.
I will use Cathy again and will recommend her to my friends.
