About Kathy

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Specializing in high energy hunting dogs.
This is your furry friends home away from home. I have done many jobs in my life but caring for animals is my passion. I recently started volunteering with the Illinois Shorthair Rescue group and donate a portion of my fees to K9's for Warriors.
Easy drop off on your way to work, the airport or vacation.
I have owned dogs, cats, ferrets, birds, turtles and fish from babies to seniors adopted and rescued. Even difficult pets that I was able to turn into a loving family member much to the surprise of our vet Last year I got 3 puppies at the same time!.
Our fenced yard is a dog playground for all those high energy dogs with a play set to climb on or through, even small dogs love to hide in the fort. If they just want to hangout under the shade of a tree or sunbathe in the open that works too.
So let's schedule a time for your fury friend to hang out with me for the day, half a day or while your on vacay. Everyday here is Pawsome.

Couldn't Thank enough of kathy's amazing care on my pup! We booked her at the last minute, but she was very helpful and did all her best to take care of our Angel Angie!! :) we got daily updates and photos of our pup with little notes, and overall we felt secured leaving her with their care, and our pup was occupied with outings with other dogs, walking and etc., Thanks to Kathy & her husband :)

Zelda is an older Boston Terrier with limited vision and we were concerned how she would deal with unfamiliar surroundings and larger dogs. Kathy and her sister made Zelda feel right at home and all of the dogs got along fine. We will board Zelda with her again with absolutely no reservations.

I Was so pleased with Kathy ! Will definitely recommend her to anyone .
I got a good feeling from the website and had a thorough and very reassuring phone conversation with Kathy, so we took a chance hoping for the best.Well, we just received our 2 DOBERMANS back after a week stay at their home ,and I can tell you that Kathy are a real deal. She clearly love and understand dogs and know what it takes to provide a top notch boarding experience for both pets and their owners. The best part, for me, [ being a paranoid ' mom' is that Kathy will send me a text message or a note every day to let me known how the walk went the day and, photos, text updates. Thanks a million for taking such great care of Taffi and Tarka!!! We look forward to sending them to stay with YOU Kathy the next time we travel. WE'RE SO GLAD WE FOUND KATHY! We cannot say enough amazing things about Kathy end FULLY RECOMMENDED!!!!

My puppy had a wonderful time at Kathy's!! If you have a pup who is looking to burn off some energy, this is the place to be! Kathy is a very caring dog owner and will treat your dog as her own. She was so understanding when my puppy had a few accidents in her house and I really appreciated her keeping me posted throughout her stay. We have already booked another day of play!!

Kathy was great! Our dog was well cared for and she kept us updated throughout his stay. He came home happy and tired from having such fun with her dogs (rather than stressed and exhausted whenever we've had to board him at a kennel in the past). We will definitely use her in the future!

Kathy was great! Kept us updated everyday with messages and pictures. Really made us feel comfortable with our decision and had peace of mind. She's our "go to" in the future when available!
