About Katherine

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Caring for pets through all stages of life is what I love. The past 15 years I have been involved in the lives of animals through working in pet services either full time or part time.
I am especially fond of restoring a pet's faith in humans and help them to enjoy common dog tasks as positive experiences no matter what may have happened in the past. I am fortunate to develop connections with animals where others may have struggled; I meet them where they are both physically and figuratively. My handling skills are conditioned to care for the disabled pets, physically, emotionally, or mentally, without use of restraints.
My home is located in Old Spring Branch in Houston which is nestled in front of a huge back yard. I am currently in process of adding a few agility items for playtime and will soon have a plastic baby pool to cool off on these hot summer days ahead. Fur babies are welcome to sleep with me and all needs are welcome. They will be met with love and kindness both by me and my permanent fur babies, Charlie and Joey.

Fabulous job! Jade had difficulties being kenneled she would come home almost as if depressed. She shyed away from us and developed barking habits that she didn't have before.
After being with Katherine Jade came home happy playful as always, ate better than she normally did :) and behaved as if we had never been gone. So thankful I found this website. Only down side is Katherine lives a bit of distance so timing is a challenge. Thank you for being patient and the wonderful care you gave to Jade!!

Katherine was great to our pup! Her house is doggy friendly and she provides text updates on how Harper was doing. We had a very last minute trip planned and she accomodated us :) thank you Katherine for taking care of our pup like she was your own!
Our two senior dogs were treated amazingly with Katherine! She has an amazing energy and an obvious love for animals. They stayed while we were in Canada over Christmas and we didn't worry about them at all. We were given frequent updates with pictures to show us how happy they were. Will definitely be using Katherine again in the future!!!

I was totally nervous about leaving Callie with a sitter as she suffers seperation anixiety, but Katherine did a wonderful job with her and she had a great time!! Being a nervous "mom" I really appreciated the fact that Katherine kept me up to speed with daily pics and updates. I highly recommend Katherine- she has a true love for animals and it shows :)
In fact , we have already booked for my next vacation!

Katherine was an outstanding sitter for Raley. When I picked him up, I could tell that he hadn't missed a day of getting loved on. I will definitely be taking Raley back to Katherine in the future.
Katherine was the perfect match for our dogs! Allowed us to meet and greet to ensure a good fit! She made our shy Sage comfortable and our social toy crazy Canela behave! She kept us updated and we received to very happy and exhausted pup back! What more could we ask for! The dogs are excited to go again!

Indy, our mini Aussie, had a wonderful stay with Katherine and her two doggies (also Aussies). We received photos and videos of Indy throughout our time away, all of which showed him having the time of his life. We will definitely be using her again in the future!

Katherine was so sweet and accommodating! My dog was pretty nervous and even had some issues the first day, but she was so knowledgeable on what to do and had me at complete ease while I was out of town. She communicated with me often and sent pictures and videos, I would definitely recommend her and use her again!

Kat is very friendly and outgoing. Bobby and Cindy stayed with her for 3 nights. They got along well with her dog, and she sent me a picture of them. I would let B&C stay with her again.
This was the second time that Katherine hosted my two babies. As before, she was super accommodating with my schedule. My two Amstaffs loved being with Katherine and Morty now follows her around like a little shadow. Mia again tore up the toy box and thought she had died and gone to heaven! Katherine provided me with status updates and photos throughout the day. Her big back yard allowed them to run to their hearts content. When the babies got home, they were exhausted and slept straight through the night. It was wonderful and I will be using her again (and again!)

Katherine took wonderful care of my little fur babies, and I will definitely use her again. I can always determine how my dogs did while I was gone by how they act when I get home with them. If they settle right back into their regular routine, than they were happy. But if they act spooky or super clingy, than I know that things weren't comfortable. I could tell right away that my dogs were happy! Katherine has a really calming energy that my dogs really responded to. Also, she sent detailed (but brief) updates every day to every other day as well as pictures. Though I was sad to leave my dogs (we are a tad co-dependent) I knew right away that I was leaving them in good hands; my vacation was so much better knowing that my dogs were happy and well taken care of. I highly recommend her!

Katherine took wonderful care of my two pitbulls and they didn't want to leave! Multiple walks and outside play tired them out for the night which is exactly what I had requested. Her two dogs were very friendly with mine and played well together. Mia especially loved the giant toy box filled with every possible doggie toy! Will definitely use Katherine again!
