About Katie

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! My name is Katie and I am a stay at home furbaby mom and my fiance Travis works full time during the day. I have a corgi named Shinji and a Pomeranian corgi mix, Yui. Shinji is happy go lucky and loves to play and Yui is more shy and caters to those who like gentler play or who are more anxious. We also have two rabbits in a large enclosed area named Leo and Cadbury. We go out to our yard for play time and potty breaks 4-5 times a day. Play time includes lots of intense games of tag in our yard (and walks if your pupper is not a flight risk, Travis assists me with walks to ensure utmost safety). On rainy days, we have a box full of toys and smart toys to keep your pupper mentally stimulated, plus a puppy tent! At Katie's Pupper Playhouse, I believe that all puppers should receive the same quality of care as hooman children. Young or old, I can promise I would treat your pupper like my own. They become family during their stay with us.

Your pupper will never be left alone, if any errands need to be done, they are done by my fiance before he comes home from work. In between play times, potty times and feeding times, your pupper will follow me around the house as I cook, and clean, so their stay will be similar to what they experience at home so they are less upset. And if your pupper needs nap time, they can sleep with me on the couch, or on our bed in our guest bedroom or our master bedroom. If that doesn't suit their fancy we have 3 sizes of dog beds. I will send regular video or picture updates. I will never crate your pupper while they are with me (unless that is where they are comfortable ). If I DO ever have to go anywhere, it is usually my mother's house and the pups (including yours) always come with to play at Lebanon Hills Park.

I am just a pawrent that has a lot of love to give and would treat your pupper as my own. Do understand that I am quite a petite woman, so there is a superficial size restriction to small and medium dogs, but if your large dog is a good listener and is not likely to jump over a fence or "take me for a walk" they are welcome as well. Please note I only have this restriction because I want the safest sitter for their size possible.
I do NOT accept aggressive dogs of any kind. I do not discrimate against any race, creed, religion, orientation or family set up.

Katie was able to accommodate our two dogs at the last minute, even though it only showed that she had one available spot. When we got to her place, our dog immediately peed all over the wooden floor. We were so embarrassed! However, Katie was all smiles and reassured us that everything was OK. She went over any questions we had and checked if there were any dietary restrictions or schedules to adhere to. The first impression when you get inside the house is that she truly caters to the dogs. There are multiple beds in all shapes and sizes, lots of toys and treats. She also keeps everything nice and clean. Each and every day that we were away, she would send us photos and videos, each with an awesome caption. When we came to get the dogs she had everything ready and the dogs looked so comfortable, it was as though they were already home. She even took the liberty to wash the kennels and dog bowls. While traveling we've left our dogs at different kennels and pet sitters. We were so impressed that we'll keep using Katie from now on.
