About Katie

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Update 10/6/2016: We recently rescued a kitten. I am willing to work with my previous frequent booking clients on this.. however if you are a new client or have only been with me once and you know your dog is not good with cats, please look for another sitter. We love having pups visit us, but it really takes the fun out of it to have to constantly be on them about trying to get/being too rough with the cat! :) Hope you understand!



I love dogs! I have two labs of my own. My husband owns a few reptiles and is available to assist with any reptile needs you may have while away. Please note that ALL of our reptiles are safely locked in the guest bedroom and away from view/reach of any animals boarded in my home.

I know that when I am away from home, it is important to me that my girls stick to their routine of going out in the morning before breakfast, and going out again and getting some play time before dinner. I am happy to work with you to ensure that your fur kids maintain their regular routine while you are away, too.

Regarding in-home boarding, I have an enclosed back porch that is my "dog room" which is shared with my two labs, so my service is only offered to clients with pets who are dog friendly. This room is equipped with concrete floors, so accidents are no problem. It also has a twin sized bed, so there's room for everyone! This bed is placed low to the ground so our senior pups have no trouble accessing it.

PLEASE feel free to send me a message if you have questions or concerns. I am happy to work with you! Don't think that your situation won't work and be afraid to ask. I have turned clients away when I don't think it's safe for the dog to be in my home, but more often than not, I can easily accommodate your needs. I will board intact animals, just please note I will not board two dogs of the opposite sex that are intact at the same time. I can accommodate food aggressive dogs, however if your dog is aggressive towards people or other dogs regularly, that is something I cannot accommodate. If you have a different situation, please ask me about it! My family loves animals, and we want to help you keep your pet out of a traditional kennel situation. If we don't seem like the right fit for you, we wish you happy travels and hope you find the perfect place for your pups!

Great stay
We left our dog, Artemis, with Katie for one night. She was great and caring with our dog and we would definitely choose Katie to watch her again.
I hadn't used this service and was very nervous. However, Katie is great! She sent pictures of my dog, gave me a daily status, and I now would rather contact her than any kennel. Katie honestly cares.
Daisy's stay went great, despite a few issues. The issues stem from Daisy's separation anxiety. She would cry and bark at night, and also jumped over the doggie door, had potty accidents in their home and wouldn't listen. Despite all of these issues, Katie as well as her family, made sure Daisy felt right at home and accommodated her as best as they could. Katie even made sure Daisy took her allergy meds twice a day. I truly appreciate Katie's patience and taking great care of Daisy. I recommend Katie for any animal. She will provide love and a safe home for your pet.

Katie did an excellent job of taking care of our Goldendoodle, Leo! We were at a football game and only had our RV, so Katie was nice enough to pick him up and bring him back to us. She and her husband treated Leo like their own, and he loved staying at their house and playing with their dogs. I would definitely trust Katie to take care of our pup in the future!

We used Katie for our 2 labs for a week, and they seemed to have had a great time! She was very responsive to my inquiries, and booking was easy. She gave us great updates while we were away, which we greatly appreciated. Will definitely use her again!

My dog Spud had a great time at Katie's. He got to play all week with a bunch of Labs! Katie even took the time to give Spud his allergy medicine, great dog vacay!
Katie and family are awesome! My dogs enjoyed their stay and they were well taken care of. Katie went out of her way to even try to trim my dog's nails. We very much appreciate the personal attention Katie provides to ensure our dogs are well taken care of.

She was so patient with Pearl. It was her first vaca and she was in full blown puppy-mode!! She was so sweet, so are her dogs. Thank you so much!!!
Katie and her family welcomed our two crazy dogs with open arms. They had a great time playing with Katie's dogs, and they were all tuckered out after I picked them up. Katie has a nice yard for them to play and a room with a bed for them to nap on. Lots of toys to play with and if they could talk they would probably have great things to say. This was our first time using Dog Vacay and Katie set the bar pretty high. We will definitely be back!

We had an excellent experience boarding with Katie and we look forward to staying with her again! Our Nova is a fairly shy and aloof pup but she settled in right away with Katie and her family. Katie did a great job sendings updates and pictures and I really appreciated it. Highly recommend Katie to anyone!
