About Katie

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We would love to take care of your fur-baby while you are away! We live in a beautiful, safe neighborhood with a park and dog beach readily available. Our home is pet-safe with constant access to a lush / partly shaded enclosed backyard. There will be constant supervision and endless love!

We have one small dog. Bear is a 10 year old Rat Terrier-Chihuahua mix (20 lbs.).
We also have two cats. Samantha and Tabitha are declawed and indoor mostly with access to the backyard during the day. And because we love animals so much, we also have a Cockatiel bird named Sunshine. He loves his cage and is in it always. However, he does love to hear the outside birds and feel the wind in his feathers so we take him and his cage outside to get some fresh air. All our animals co-exist quite nicely with each other and with new furry friends that visit, although I think a meet and greet is still a great idea for everyone involved.

We have nursed all our animals back to great health after any procedures they have had over the years with the necessary medicines and bandage care. We house trained all our animals since we've had them since they were babies, so we are quite familiar with the process and their need for constant access to the yard.

I have a 10 year old, active for his age, Maltese. He has spent many happy days and nights with Katie and Olivia. His name is Cheerio and loves going to The Beach House to hang out with their family dog, Mr Bear. He loves adventuring around the backyard. They are great with Cheerio and I honestly believe that he is loved there. Cheerio is always excited when we get to the front door, cuz he knows he's home. I love The Beach House and Olivia is a real cutie! Katie is a gem too! You will love them!

Katie is THE BEST dog sitter I have ever experienced. The yard is beautiful and just the right size for pets. Animals are well cared for with Katie. Katie and Brad are both so calm and friendly. They genuinely love your pets and go the extra mile where ever needed! I felt so safe with them, knowing that my two little terriers were being loved by them just like at home. I got frequent photos and updates too! I'm hoping to keep them as my pet sitters forever. I HIGHLY recommend Katie for all your pets. She's #1!!

Last Christmas we went to Hawaii and the Balls babysat our Zsa Zsa. She loves it at their house. Lots of kitties to sniff, a bird she was fascinated with and a gorgeous back yard with lots of shrubbery she could hunt around for critters.....she has special needs, food requirements and medications and she was perfectly tended to. Walked twice a day but I think her favorite part was playtime with Uncle Brad ?? We got lots of videos to reassure us that she was doing great which really eased our minds. Highly recommend Katie & Olivia for all your fur babies!

Katie took such amazing care of my dog! She welcomed her with love and enthusiasm into the family and I knew the minute we got there that my dog would feel like she was on vacation! I received photos and a status reports several times a day. I shared the photos with others who were amazed that I found a sitter who was so wonderful. I recommend Katie without hesitation!
So happy with leaving our pup here while we were away! My dog is a handful and his vacation couldn't have gone smoother! Definitely going to bring my dog back here when needed!
Katie et al were so welcoming to my family and Ziggy. This was his first time away from home and first time with other animals and thanks to Katie and her crew, he had a blast! The pics were great and I never had to worry as her texts kept me posted on the great time he was having. Great lady and great experience !
Hello All -
If you are looking for a loving, warm and caring place for your special pet, than Katie and Olivia are perfect for you. Molly Sylvester stayed with them for six days/nights and she was so happy. Katie sent me updates and pictures every day....not a moment of stress for my dog!

I trusted my instincts when reviewing the many options on DogVacay, and I absolutely made the right choice! Highly recommend.
Katie & Olivia are wonderful! Their clean beach home and loving atmosphere was a perfect fit for Squishy. Everything went smoothly from our meet n greet to the time I picked him up. This was our first time using DogVacay and I'm glad I picked Katie & Olivia. My schedule was kinda up in the air and I'm grateful that they were flexible with my drop off and pick up times. I received updates and pictures of my baby throughout his stay and I had peace of mind that Squishy was in excellent hands. Mr.Bear is a sweet little friendly fella. They got along immediately. I can't say enough good things about Katie&Olivia. We love them! Thanks you guys!
Our experience with Katie exceeds our expectation. Our dog Brave, has a ton of energy and Katie managed to run her down by the end of the day! Brave was tired and sleeping by night time. Katie managed to take great and creative photos of Brave! Very good bonus. Her home looked very spacious and safe for the stay. As we were leaving I noticed Brave was looking back inside the house as if she was saying farewell to a place she really enjoyed. We came to pick up Brave a bit late but it wasn't an issue either. Katie and her daughter took great care of Brave and I would trust them again and again to watch Brave. Thank you guys for making our weekend! Couldn't have done it without yall!
Katie is lovely! She sat my new kitty while I hosted a cat allergic guest. She sent lots of darling pictures and updates and I know my kitty loved her, her home and her lovely pets. I highly recommend Katie!!
