About Katharine

I love, love, love me some doggies! Sweet Pea (the appropriately named, brown dog in the pics) and Tinker Belle (spunky but friendly like her Peter Pan name sake) are truly my babies. I don't have any kiddos of my own and so my dogs, along with yours when they visit, are treated like my human children that they think they are! I am home most of the day, and we go on walks and/or to the dog park almost daily regardless of the season. Your pooch will fit right in :).
My house has doggie doors so when I am home, the dogs can come and go into the fenced back yard as they want, get their "run" on, and come back in as soon as they're ready. I also let them out regularly.
When I leave the house, Sweet Pea and Tink have their own bedroom suited to their needs where they stay. The "dog room" has a "barn" door, and I never close the top half so they don't feel shut away (see pic). I have a crate, left over from the puppy days, that stays in "the dog room" as some visiting pups/owners like the option of using it (and Tinker Belle has been choosing to go in there ever since I put the cute rug and pillows in there...she's such a diva!! Too funny!!), but I will only use it for your dog if you want me to. You can decide if your pooch would be best there or just free within the dog room, or bring your own crate, or be free to roam in the house based on your previous experience. There are no doggie doors in "the dogs' room", and so for their safety they do not have access to be outside when I am not home.
Because I know how expensive boarding my girls can get, if you have 2 pets then I will only charge $30 a night for the second one.
I am on this site daily via the DogVacay app on my phone which does not allow me to "update" the calendar as I can from my laptop. So even though it may appear that I "Last Updated" quite a while ago, I usually see requests almost immediately and am able to correspond fairly swiftly. :) LOOK FORWARD TO TALKING WITH YOU :)

Scarlett loves Katie ❤️❤️
Katie is a lifesaver!! She helped me in such a tough spot and literally met with me 1 day before my husband and I had to go out of town. Her communication was excellent and from all the videos and pictures she sent Griffin sure looked like he had a blast playing with her sweet dog. Her house is very pet friendly with a big fenced in back yard for Our pup to run around. I would highly recommend Katie!
He loves to come here. Tail wagging time :) Tx!
Wonderful visit w/ other pups & Katie!
Great thanks!
Katie was great! She kept us up-to-date on how Charlie was doing by sending pics, which we really appreciated. Would book again!
Very Pleased Again!!
Awesome!!! Thank you!
Rigby had a wonderful stay with Katharine. Would recommend highly.
Wonderful experience!
Great home away from home for my dogs! Everyone might think their pets have special needs but my two really do. One is older and a little frail, and the other has a tendency to be nervous.

Katharine was so caring - she was patient with my older dog and garnered the trust of the nervous one almost immediately! Her pup, Sweet pea, is also a very good host dog!

When my dogs returned to Katharine's house for a second 'vacation' both scrambled to the front door and made themselves immediately at home!

Katharine is awesome.
Katie has a great home set-up that accommodates dogs requirements for flexibility, indoor and outdoor activity, and sleeping arrangements. She loves dogs. Her Sweet Pea is so gentle and enjoys the company. Highly recommend... our dog was happy and pick-up/drop-off was easy.
Fantastic host!
Katie did a good job! She makes sure to get our
Dogs schedule and adhere to his routine, so
he knows what to expect and behaves accordingly.

She is flexible and has several playmates on hand
so my dog has other canine companions, which
he loves since he is our only dog.

Thanks for giving him hugs while we are away.

We'll be back soon- Shari G
Excellent doggy sitter! My pups had a great time and came back very happy. Katharine was very patient with our younger dog, Chief, who can be a handful! We will definitely use her services again!
Katie is wonderful for Adie. She came home happy and well taken care of. Since Adie has stayed with Katie before, she had no problems adjusting like she had a few times in the past with kennels.
Thanks for another great stay. Scarlet had a great time. Looking forward to next week
Great "dog home" for our 4 legged children. Caring, fun host. Kept us up to date with what was going on with text messages and pictures. the most comfortable we've felt leaving them in a long time.
My yellow lab, Sunny, had a great stay with Katie! It was my first time to have someone care for Sunny other than a friend and I was a little nervous. Katie was great, took her time to answer my questions during our meet and greet and made me feel reassured. While Sunny was staying with her Katie texted me pictures and videos which really made me happy to be able to see Sunny doing so well. Sunny is already scheduled for her next stay with Katie!!
We had a good experience with Katharine. She was easy to deal with and kept us up to date on how our dog was doing. She was flexible on pick up and drop off times. I would recommend her and would use her again. Our dog seemed well cared for even though he is still a very active puppy.
Katie was great. Very organized, covered all details and very quick to respond to emails etc. Sent update pics and notes. I had complete confidence in leaving my sweet girl with her!
Katherine was 5 stars all the way. Bernie loved being there! Katherine was always easy to work with about pick up and drop off times and she even taught Bernie to go thru dog doors....which he had always refused to do for me. Yea Katherine.
Katharine is awesome, flexible, helpful, and takes such great care of my sweet pup! He is always so excited to get to go stay with Katharine and Sweet Pea! We can't wait for our next visit :)
Two words...The Best!
We could not have been happier with our dog, Josie's stay, with Katie. Her home is the perfect set up for pets, her two dogs were sweet friends, and Katie was a great surrogate mom.
FIVE STARS! Could not have felt better about leaving Maggie May with Katherine! She is wonderful. Maggie is a rescue, and can be very timid and has separation anxiety. I have only left her with family in the past - but we recently moved and I needed to find a non-kennel option. Katherine obviously has a big heart for dogs. Her home is extremely dog friendly with lots of space, and a great fenced in yard. I will be booking with Katherine again for sure. We are feeling very fortunate to have found her!
I have left Scarlet twice in two weeks. The real test was when I dropped her off the second time. Scarlet jumped out of the car right to front door tail wagging, I think that says it all. Thanks Katie
Katie was awesome!

I have never been on the other side of Dog Vacay before because I am usually the one doing the hosting but Katie and her pups were excellent hosts to Indie. She sent pictures and videos and was very quick to respond to my texts to check up on my little man.

Will definitely be booking with her again!

Berkeley had a wonderful stay, and I felt very comfortable knowing that she would get plenty of love and attention while I was away!
We love love love Katie! Our dog had a great time, and we enjoyed getting pictures and video clips of him having fun while we were gone. Katie communicated with us when she had concerns for Buddy's comfort--we were touched by her caring thoughtfulness. I had such peace of mind while we were gone, knowing that our pet was in such a dog-friendly, loving environment, sleeping on his own bed and never in a run. Katie is fantastic and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for dog care. Buddy will definitely "vacay" with Katie, Sweet Pea and Tink again! Thanks for everything, Katie! :)
Another GREAT stay! Katharine is so accommodating and obviously loves all the guests !! Will Definately book again !
Katie is amazing!!! I highly recommend her. She kept our one year old Boston Terrier for five days. We got text updates with pictures and/or video every day as well as cute pictures on the Dogvacay site. Her beautiful house is very dog friendly, comfortable and safe, and has a wonderful backyard. Our dog had a great time and we felt at ease knowing she was in excellent care. Thank you, Katie!!!
Katie was great, I really couldn't have asked for a better stay for me dog. She was very attentive to his needs including the medicine that he needs. She was very caring towards him, he was the calmest and happiest he has ever been after me having to go out of town without him. She also sent my pics of him and even a video while I was gone and kept me updated on him, helping me also be more at ease about leaving him. She is a true dog lover and so nice I would absolutely use her again and recommend her to anyone else looking for someone to watch their dog(s).
We really feel so fortunate to have met Katherine as she is a wonderful pet sitter!
Excellent stay .. We are definitely going to be a repeat customer ! Katharine is great with Tobe and so happy we found her.
This was Tobes second visit. Katharine is so nice and great with the dogs. Very clean and great care was taken! Will Definately use again. This was another great experience. !!
It was my first time leaving Jack with Katie and he did fine. She was very attentive with with a nice backyard for him to roam. Next time I go out of town I will definitely book with Katie.
My doggies had a wonderful time at Katherine's house!
Katherine was very good with my hyper dog! She played well with her dogs and enjoyed the backyard which she doesn't have at home. I was updated on the regular on how she was doing. She was also very flexible with pickup and drop off times.
My baby was obviously well cared for and the regular updates from Katie relieved my separation anxiety. Highly recommend!!
Found my favorite dog caregiver ever. My baby was obviously well treated and the regular updates from Katie relieved my separation anxiety. Highly recommend!!!
It was a great 1st time! We had a meet and greet and met Katie and her pups. My pup was a little overwhelmed at first meeting new friends which is normal for him but was ok in a few minutes.
I felt good about leaving him with Katie and from the pic's I could tell he was enjoying his new friends. When we came home we didn't have bathroom issues like we did last time I left him.
We will definitely use Katie again.
My little dachshund Lily stayed with Katie for a week, and Katie was awesome!! Normally it takes Lily a little while to warm up to other people's houses and dogs, so I took her for a test visit before her long stay. I knew immediately that Katie and her sweet doggies Tink and Sweet Pea were kindred spirits! Lily took to all three of them right away, and I was amazed at how quickly she felt at home. Knowing that Lily would be completely comfortable and playing the days away made me feel so much better about being away from her for a week. Katie, thank you so much for taking great care of my baby. We'll see you next time!
We had the pleasure of being the first clients to use Katie through Dog Vacay. Our Sadie had a great time! She has a wonderful set up for dogs who stay in her home. We had an excellent experience with her, and felt like our pup was in good hands. She made sure to keep in touch via text, and sent us photos via email. We will use Katie again when we go to the beach again next summer.
