About Katie

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

I have one small dog. Bear is a 10 year old Rat Terrier-Chihuahua mix (20 lbs.).
I also have two cats. Samantha and Tabitha are declawed and indoor mostly with access to the backyard during the day. And because I love animals so much, I 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 I take him and his cage outside to get some fresh air. All my 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.

I 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. I house-trained all my animals since I've had them since they were babies, so I am 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 was so amazing! I have never left Bella with anyone other than my mom before so I was a little nervous. Bella immediately loved her from the second we walked into her super clean home. I received texts and pics throughout the whole trip letting me know how Bella was doing and how much fun she was having. I was able to enjoy my trip because I wasn't worried about my dog at all. I don't think Bella even wanted to leave when we showed back up. Will for sure use her again on our next trip :)
Katie and her family were great! They were so welcoming and accommodating to Whiskey; she was able to adjust to their home very quickly. We will absolutely be using Katie again the next time we go on Vacation!
Katie and her entire family are super friendly and warmly welcomed Java. She took care of my dog like he was her own and showed me that Java was in good hands. I could never really relax whenever I leave Java somewhere else for day care but felt worriless when my dog was with her. There was nothing she fell short in dogsitting Java and I'm planning to use her services again and again without hesitation. Highly recommended!
