About Katharine

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My husband (Terry) and I (Katie) are thrilled to open our home to your furry family members. We are both 26 years old and have had and cared for cats and dogs all our lives. We share equally in taking care of visiting pets, so you may see one or both of us when you drop off/pick up your pet. I split my work-week between working from home or from my office. Please be aware that some days (generally Mondays and Tuesdays) we may be limited in available pick-up/drop-off times because I am at my office through the work-day.

We have 2 very friendly dogs (Tonks and Jotun) and two cats (Romulus and Tomen). We are happy to watch both cats and dogs, and can easily accommodate cats that don't want to be around dogs and vice versa. Our house is set up so we can separate cats from dogs when needed.

WHILE YOUR DOG IS HERE:
- They will have the run of most of the house (minus our bedroom).
- We have a fenced-in backyard for frequent potty-breaks, play, and exercise.
- We always have a steady supply of dog toys and treats to entertain your dog and keep their brain busy.
- Our two dogs are used to new friends coming and going, and are great at communicating with other dogs/fostering healthy socialization. For the energetic puppy, our two dogs make playful companions. For the older dog that prefers to be left alone, our dogs are happy to give them space.
- If your dog is cat-aggressive or has no experience with cats, our two cats will be kept in the bedroom away from the dogs.
- We generally accept no more than two dogs at a time, although we can take up to four if they are all from the same family/household.

WHAT YOU SHOULD BRING:
- Food and bowls. We often give dog treats, so let me know about any diet restrictions or if your dog should not have any treats.
- Collar/leash. Your dog must have a collar with identifying tags. If they have a separate collar/harness that you use on walks, please bring that as well.
- Bedding. If your dog has a particular bed, blanket, or crate they like to sleep with, please bring that so they will feel most comfortable.

DROP-OFF/PICK-UP TIMES: We want to be accommodating of your schedule, but please remember this is our home, not a business. You should discuss drop-off and pick-up times with us before booking and keep us notified of any changes in your schedule. Nine o'clock pm is the latest drop-off/pick-up time.
Per DogVacay policy, an overnight stay covers up to 24 hours. We are fairly flexible on that, but if you want to drop your dog off early one morning and pick them up late the following night, you should book for an overnight stay plus a day of daycare. Please message me if you have any questions.

WE WILL NOT ACCEPT DOGS THAT:
- show aggression toward people or toward our dogs (being nervous their first time in a new place or around new people/dogs is normal and okay; snapping teeth at me or my dogs is not)
- bark excessively
- are destructive of household objects or walls/doors

I will continue to use Katie and her husband. It usually takes a while for my dogs to trust and warm up to someone but they instantly loved them. This was the first time we've left our babies for linger than just an average work day (I'm usually home with them all day while hubby works) and even though they had a few accidents (I expected that) Katie and Terry took excellent care of them and was very patient and loving. I would highly recommend them if you are looking for great care for your fur babies!! I'm definitely using them again!!

It's always a pleasure for our dog to stay with Katie. She is very warm, inviting, professional. Wouldn't have my pooch anywhere else!
Katie took great care of my two dogs. I hate leaving my dogs but they were in great hands with Katie. I highly recommend her!
Angel Katie saved us on Monday. She really does not know what a life saver she was to myself, Tony and Zack. Zack had a great time!! Thank you Katie!
This was my first time using a dog sitter that wasn't a close friend and I am very pleased with how well it went. Katie was super accommodating when I ran into flight cancelations and got stuck an extra day. Received many messages and pictures on how my Lula was doing.

Duncan is always well taken care of at Katie's!
Katie was GREAT! Duncan enjoyed both her company & her dogs - super for socialization & for Mom's day out. She was so accommodating of my schedule & will certainly be booking with her again! Thanks again Katie!!
Katie was great! Very personable and Banks loved her. She was prompt and reliable and sent me a pic of Banks every day.
Anna came home happ and tired. Katie has a great understanding of dogs, and her own dogs are great buddies for visiting dogs. Will definitely use her again!
Dino stayed with Katie for 2 nights. He had such a good time playing with her and her two pups he had to take a nap when he got home. She sent me pictures of Dino while I was away showing him playing and having a great time, which made my time away easier. She was also very accommodating in the drop-off/pick-up times. Dino is usually very sad after coming home from time away, but, after being with Katie, nothing but tail wags and face licks this time! I'll definitely use Katie to watch Dino if I have to go out of town and can't take him with me again.

Everything went smoothly. All medications were given when needed. Jojo was calm and happy when picked up.
Katie was wonderful with Jojo. She sent me two pictures and alerted me to the fact that he was scratching his nose again.
Jojo seemed enjoy his stay with Terry and had an opportunity to play with some cats. Was nice to have a picture during the stay.
Katie was a great host. Her big dogs got along great with my little one and she came home exhausted. Kitzel will definitely be staying there again.
Katie was friendly and understanding with Jack during his visit. Was glad to have Jack cared for while attending weekend events around a friend's daughter's wedding. Katie responded to my "check in" daily texts which I appreciated.
We always love having Maggie stay with Katie!
Katie is amazing with Milo. Wouldn't want to have a different sitter for him.
Katie was amazing! She sent multiple pics of Xena each day. I could tell through the photos that she was treating my baby as her own. She was also very flexible with the drop off and pick-up times. I will definitely use her again!
Katie was very patient and understanding to Coco's slight anxiety issue, as well as mine :) will definitely use her services again. Thanks Katie !
Loved Katie and will use her again. And Ellie loved her too!
Great Host - Marley feels right at home when he visits.
Great Host! - Marley loved going over to her house.
Maggie really enjoyed staying with Katie and Tonks! And even though Maggie only stayed two nights, Katie sent several pictures letting us know that Maggie was doing well, which really eased our mind. I'd definitely book with Katie again.
