About Katie

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! My name is Katie. I'm originally from Chicago and currently attend NYU as a senior undergrad student in Gallatin. My parents would never let me get a pet so I decided pet sitting for my friends and family was the next best thing. I started in elementary school with the help of my mom and have been caring for other's pets ever since.
I love long walks, playing fetch and trips to the dog park. A friendly Yorkie named Tilly lives with me and loves making new friends, even if they're shy at first. Our neighbor's dog, Toro, might also stop by for a puppy playdate if your dog feels extra social. We'll go out for at least 3 walks everyday and stick to whatever eating schedule your dog is used to. The water bowl is always full. Dogs are allowed on all furniture and in every room. They can sleep on my bed, in Tilly's bed, in a crate provided by their human or wherever they choose. Tilly has lots of dog toys to share. I live about a 10 minute walk away from Madison Square Dog Park, so if your pup is up to it, we can go meet new friends and play at the dog park!

Katie is an amazing dog-sitter! When on the job, she makes the dog her #1 priority, taking them to dog parks, on many walks, etc. I would love to have her as a sitter for my dog again!

Katie is great with dogs. I've seen such an enthusiasm with all of the dogs that she has taken care of. She is super organized and responsible, an A+ sitter.

Katie is so amazing with dogs. I used to be terrified of dogs but not when Katie's around cause she knows how to handle them. I think it's just because dogs like her. She's always taking them for walks and playing them. She's amazing. 10/10 would recommend.

Katie is one of the few people I trust to take care of my dog/best friend/princess. My dog, Matilda, can be moody and very stubborn, but Katie is so great with her! She gives my dog lots of love, treats, snuggles, and lots of fun trips to the local dog park! I would recommend hiring Katie!

Katie was an excellent sitter for our dog while we were away. It was our first time both leaving our dog for an extended time and having someone stay over at our home, and the experience couldn't have gone better.

Katie was always available and continually sent updates to assure us our pup was in good hands. She did her best to keep him to his normal routine with walks, feeding, and sleeping - she even brushed his teeth!

We felt very relaxed and confident our dog was in good hands with Katie, and we're so thankful for that piece of mind while away.
