About Katherine

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Former Mermaid and then previously managed a Shelter and Veterinary Hospital, I am now a stay at home mum. I have been pet sitting for friends and family for years - since I was 12!. We have one very friendly Golden - 6 year old Duncan. We live in a great walking community and play catch.. a lot. We live 10 minutes from Piedmont Park and can walk to Mason Mill Park. We have a very large fenced in backyard.We have a nice sunroom for those who need time alone or for younger and older dogs who need a quiet space. Relax, knowing your pooch will be loved and treated as one of our own and probably be pretty tuckered out with lots of fun! We will offer you daily updates with photos. You will be able to go away knowing your dog is loved, having fun and is safe. IMPORTANT INFORMATION. Currently I am only taking ONE dog at a time unless multiple dogs are from the same family in which my limit will be 2 dogs.

A typical day involves walks and outdoor playtime in our large fenced backyard pretty much all day. Sometimes we walk to school and we tailor our walks to the young and old. When possible,we go to Piedmont Dog Park, walk the Beltline Trail or do a hike at Stone Mountain, Hahn Woods and Lullwater at Emory, Henderson Mill or Mason Mill, Chattahoochee River to name a few!. We have access to land in Covington and a special adventure day involves running around and playing pretty hard on that land.

We also offer house calls for your other non human family members.

If my calendar says I am unavailable please check with me as I may have a spot. I often set aside days for my regulars and to avoid getting overly booked in the summer. Quite often I can open up a space just ask! I have a flexible cancellation policy for all dates except major Holidays.

Important Information. Puppies under 6 months are 40 per night as they have more needs than an older dog.

More important information!! I do request a Meet and Greet before taking any booking. This is to make sure your dog is happy and comfortable with my dog, my 2 girls and my home. Sorry but I do not take any dogs over 6 months of age who are not spayed or neutered.I also do not take any dog that is mouthy or nippy or not good with children. All dogs must be up to date on all vaccines and proof to be brought at drop off. They will be returned at the end of your dog's visit. This is most important. If I am unavailable please make sure you request a Meet and Greet for your pooch with another Host. It will make the transition so much smoother. I look forward to meeting you and your dog.

My dog Casey was a little anxious at first, but Katherine and her dog Duncan made Casey feel right at home. I especially enjoyed receiving regular texts and photos to see how Casey was doing while I was away. Helped me to enjoy my trip even more. I would definitely recommend Katherine to anyone who is looking for great place to board their dog. I have already booked Casey with Katherine for my next trip!

We don't leave our dog often, but when we do she prefers to be with Kate and her family. Our dog has pretty bad separation anxiety but I know that she settles in quickly at this home. I know because Kate is so good about sending photo updates. They do so many fun things and we get so many cute pictures I sometimes think the dog is having more fun than whatever we left her to go do. I guess that's fair.

My pup had a great experience at Kate's place. Kate was really organized and experienced at watching dogs of different temperaments. I felt reassured that she would treat Dafni, my golden retriever, just like one of her own.
