About Kat

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a lover of animals! We have two Doxie mixes that are part of our family all of the time, so your dogs will have constant companions! I am home all day, and I promise to pamper your dogs as much as I pamper my own. I offer daily dog walking, bathing, house visits, doggy daycare, and overnight boarding.

In our house all of the time:
2 dachshunds and 2 kids

If this sounds like the perfect environment for your dog, please contact me for a meet and greet!

Another great experience for Buster and Dulce staying with Kat's family. The minute they arrived they ran into the house to greet their dog friends and extended family. Kat was also accommodating when our flight back was diverted due to weather. There was no issue picking up the dogs later than planned. We cannot recommend Kat more.

Another great experience with Kat. Our dogs even got some turkey on thanksgiving after making sure it was OK. Kat was understanding and flexible when our travel plans changed which meant we picked up the dogs a few hours earlier than planned.
Great service again! Thank you.
Great work looking after our little family member. He was very comfortable with you and your family and I appreciate your flexibility and professionalism. Thank you Kat! The Schilling family
This was our first time using Dog Vacay and Kat was a great host to our pup Chase! She sent updates daily and Chase really seems to have enjoyed himself during his stay! We'll definitely be using Kat's services again in the future!
Kat was flexible, pleasant, professional, and communicative. I was not sure how this was going to be for my dog Parker, but Kat made my first experience with Dogvacay very pleasant. Thanks Kat! Keith
This was my first time using Kat and I am extremely pleased. She did such a great job looking after my dog. I will definitely be using her services in the future.
We booked again with Kat while we were out of town for the weekend. Once again she responded quickly with a custom quote and I am so pleased that she was available to car for my 4 big fur babies. They were fed and taken out as scheduled. I will definitely continue to book Kat when we are going out of town!

Kat and her whole family did an awesome job caring for Sophie. I never had a worry knowing she was being cared for. She is def my go to girl! If you want someone who truly loves your pet like their own, call Kat!
Kat and her family were simply wonderful to deal with. The ease of communication and timely responses made leaving our little angel much easier. She even sent a special Christmas morning picture update. Our dog will be staying with Kat the next time we head out of town.

I could tell Teddy had a great stay with Kat. He seemed very happy (and tired!) when he got home. Kat was good about answering my check-in text messages promptly and she was very friendly. She even gave Teddy a "doggy bag" of treats for him to take home! Thanks again!

This was a continuation of the review I left about Kat on my other reservation. When I realized that I would need to be out of town for several more hours than I previously thought, I was able to message Kat and reserve her to come over and take care of my 4 dogs again. The quick response time is a plus. She was great! Once again followed suggestions to get my shy girl Lexi out of the crate to eat and go potty. I will definitely book Kat again, since all went so well. I love that she took time to play with each of my dogs.

I am so happy that I found a responsible dog lover who lives nearby to care for our dogs while we were away. I reserved Kat to feed and take out our 4 large dogs for one evening and one morning. She was fantastic and very flexible when I realized that there was an error in the dates I booked. She followed all the directions left for feeding, potty, and playtime. She was worried that Lexi wouldn't come out to go to the bathroom for her, and was willing to go out of her way to follow some additional directions for getting Lexi to come out of her crate. I really appreciate that she went the extra mile for my dogs. I will definitely reserve with Kat again.

I really felt comfortable leaving my half lab half golden retreiver, Sasha with Kat and her family! Her little boy was so sweet to Sasha and could not wait to play and love on her. So I knew she would be in good hands! I will be leaving her with Kat and her family again, knowing that Sasha is treated like part of their family makes me feel very comfortable when I have to go out of town and can't take her with me.

Although we were torn about whether or not to spend the holidays with our dogs we knew having them stay with Kat would be a vacation for them as well. Sure enough they were happy to see Kat, her family, and pack as soon as we walked through the front door. They were both happy, well exercised and played out when we picked them up 3 days later. At this point leaving our beloved ones with Kat is like leaving them with a family member. We cannot recommend Kat and her family more.

Kat was kind enough to accommodate our dogs with very short notice. The dogs were excited the minute they walked into Kat's house and greeted her kids like old friends. Our trip was made easier not worrying about the condition and care our dogs were receiving. Once again we picked up well exercised, calm and happy dogs. We highly recommend Kat and will definitely check with her next time we need to travel

Everything went great as usal with Kat. I had actually had to cancel my original trip and then had another one come up last minute and she was still able to accomodate me. HUGE help. I feel at ease knowing she took care of my fur babies!
This was our first trip overseas since becoming dog owners. We did not relish the thought of boarding them at the vet's since they do not like going there for doctor or grooming visits. We vetted several homes and Kat's home and family were a great fit from the get go. Other homes we visited seemed like glorified kennels with too many dogs but Kat's place seemed like a real home and family. Not only did they have 2 dachshund mixes like our Buster and Dulce but Tyson and LouLou matched their personalities.

We received text messages and pictures throughout our trip letting us how both of them were doing and getting along. These messages comforted us greatly. Thanks to Kat and her family we were able to enjoy our vacation guilt and worry free. We even got goodie bags and report cards when we picked them up. Both dogs were happy (one well rested and the other well exercised) when we picked them up. We cannot recommend Kat more and we will definitely look to her again should we need to board our dogs.

I really loved Kat! She was very professional and great with both of my dogs. I received pictures via text and a full report card which was very helpful and made me feel at ease! Will most definitely be using her for futre pet visits!!! Thanks Kat!!!
She is an absolute amazing dog sitter! Whenever we need her she is available upon request. She is very flexible with our schedule. Charlie loves visiting with her family and always is well taken care of and happy when we pick her up. We are given updates of Charlie with pictures or little email messages. Katherine is a very sweet and caring woman for our Charlie. We can tell she cares about animals. I would definitely recommend her to other people. As a matter of fact, we have recommended her to a lot of our friends. Tubal you Katherine!
