About katie

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
In my 25 years there has been one constant, a love and understanding for all animals, especially dogs. In my care, your dog will have access to my fenced in backyard with locked gate. I also have a large front yard for play time and walks around my quaint nieghborhood. They will be free to roam around my downstairs area as well. I do not have a demanding job, so they will never be alone more than 2 hours at a time. They will be let out regulary to do doggy business.
I have cared for almost all breeds from German Shepherds to Chihuahuas. I have cared for puppies, seniors and even cancer patients. I two small well behaved dogs who help me, they are socializing experts!

So when you must go away, let your dogs come over and play!!

We have left our dog under Katie's care several times now and have booked our dog 4 more times in the coming few months. We absolutely trust Katie and know our dog is in good hands every single time. She keeps us updated continuously with messages and pictures. Our dog loves going to her house to be around her dogs as well! We are super happy with Katie!
This was our first time using this service and it was great. Katie was a great sitter for our sweet boy while we were on vacation. She texted us back right away when we checked in on him and notified us when she thought something was wrong with him. She also sent pictures which reassured us...and made us chuckle. We would use her again for sure!
Katie was awesome! She sent daily picture updates and made sure my pup felt right at home. We will definitely be using Katie again!
Katie is great! She has watched our pup twice and both times he has come home happy and tired from all is playtime. She was able to take him with only a half day notice. I would absolutely bring my pup back over to Katie's again :)
Katie was a great sitter for my puppy Snoopy. He is shy around new people and dogs and I was a little nervous because I didn't know how he would respond. Katie was very reassuring that she was willing and capable to handle any situation. She does own 2 dogs of her own and informed me of her procedure for introducing her dogs and Snoopy to each other. Katie was super friendly to me and Snoopy. She sent me a few pictures to ease my mind. Katie was awesome. She made Snoopy and my first experience with pet sitting wonderful. Snoopy will definitely be back.
Katie was so kind to take on my 9 month lab/mix puppy. She took my Phoebe for many walks to help manage the puppy energy. Katie had other dogs that liked to play which always makes my puppy happy, happy. Thanks so much, Katie.
Katie was a wonderful host! She sent me pictures of my dog during his stay. I could tell he was very happy. I will recommend Katie and Dogvacay to friends and family. I was very very satisfied with how well she cared for my dog. Thank you Katie!
Katie has a way with animals that most people don't. She has a great energy and it runs rapport with the animals in her care. My big goofball, Rocky, loves staying with her. Thank you, Katie! Your pets will be well cared for her in her hands.
Maggie had a great time. Katie was very nice and gracious. Seemed to really Like dogs and was good with them. I will definitely use her again.
Katie was great! She watched our 2 dogs while we were out of town who have never been kenneled or stayed with anyone other than family. We were a bit nervous, but Katie put our mind at ease. She sent a picture everyday and let us know how the dogs were doing and was flexible with pick up and drop off times. We will definitely have Katie watch our dogs when we need it next.
Katie was great. She was very responsive upon booking our appointment and very good with our baby Maurice(pug). I would definitely use her again.
Katie is absolutely the best! As a doggy parent I was concerned to leave my dog with any body. Katie was great at making me feel at ease with the whole process. We will definitely be coming back to her.
Katie was amazing! She was great about keeping up with our dogs skin care needs and making sure he gets play time and walks!
I could tell Sami really enjoyed her stay with Katie. She is kind, compassionate and understanding of our four legged babies. Very considerate of my time restraints also...The whole experience was great and I look forward to working with her again.!!
It was the first time to use Petvacy and were very satisfied with the way it was set up. Kati did a very good job with both of our dogs, the only down fall was the location. We live in Katy, but my wives mother lives about 2-3 miles from Kati, make a long story short it worked out good. We would use Kati again if the situation were the same.
I was a little skeptical to use the site, however I did not want to board my dog again. The last time I boarded him, it just seemed a little much for him. I found Katie through this site and although she had no reviews as of yet, I had a good feeling about her. She responded immediately to my messages and assured me that she had prior experience, she was just new to the site. She gave me a run down of her schedule and let me know about her lodging. She eagerly greeted us at the door and my dog seemed happy and at home. She has one other small dog and I think mine was happy to have another pup around. Everything was exactly as she has stated and represented on the website. We were gone for a week and when I picked him up he had been well cared for and loved. She even sent a few pictures during the week to show me that he was ok. In all honesty, I think he would have moved in with Katie :) Thank you, Katie for taking care of Gumbeaux! He was one happy dog and it really eased my mind to know that he was well cared for while we were away.
