About Katelyn

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a dog lover through and through. I have been loving and caring for dogs for over 15 years.

I live in a very dog friendly and safe neighborhood in Lakeview. We have easy access to the lake, Montrose Dog Beach is just over a mile away, and Challenger Bark dog park is 1 block from my building! Needless to say, there are a ton of fun places to go each day with the dogs.

When leaving your dog with me, you can expect your dog to: get several walks/outings a day, receive tons of kisses/cuddles, soak up attention, play with KJ (my dog), and thrive in a loving and welcoming environment.

My 1br apartment is small but very dog friendly, and it has a nice sized balcony for the dogs to lay out on if they would like (KJ loves it!).

I have a flexible job and work from home much of the time, so your dog will often get the benefit of me being home during the day!

***Please Note***
I cannot accommodate dogs who use pee pads, have a tendency to bark and/or have separation anxiety.

Raleigh had a great time at Katelyn's place playing with her pup KJ. Katelyn was super accommodating and sent us a bunch of adorable pics of our happy pup. I would highly recommend Katelyn to board your pup!
Katelyn was very communicative, very accommodating of our schedules for drop-off and pick-up, and was such a good care-taker for our dog. She sent photo and text updates regularly so we knew what our guy was up to, and Katelyn's proximity to a dog park was perfect so he could get plenty of exercise during the days and evenings. We would not hesitate to use Katelyn the next time we need a dog-sitter!

This is our second time asking Katelyn to puppy sit and it was terrific just as expected. She is flexible and great with our dogs. They can't wait for the next time mom and dad go on vacation so she can watch them again!
We take Rockne (our 2 year old Golden) to Katelyn's every time we leave town - at least once a month if not more - and Rockne loves it. He can't wait to get inside when we drop him off to play with Katelyn and her dog and foster dog (and maybe another friend or 2!). When we pick him up he is exhausted from so much excitement and play time. We highly recommend Katelyn (& KJ!).

Katelyn was great! We came from outside of the US and she replied very promptly after contacting her through the website. It was very easy to set-up a meet-up with her and text her about any questions or concerns throughout the day! She would send a picture and update everyday on how our little girl was doing. Will definitely try to acquire Katelyn's services again!

Carter loved his weekend with Katelyn! She was flexible and took great care of him. I will definitely use her again!
Katelyn was a wonderful host for my little fur baby Leland. At first, I was nervous about being away from my dog for 2 weeks, but after meeting with Katelyn, I was put at ease. She is a sweet gal with and sent many updates about Leland with pictures while I was away. I highly recommend her!

Katelyn is awesome! She was very accommodating, took great care of my dog Sophia, and sent me daily text updates to let me know how Sophia is doing.
Katelyn was a great host for our pup. She sent many pictures letting me know Bentley was having a great time. Will use again for sure!!
What a great experience we had with Katelyn! Not only was she patient and flexible with our vacation schedule but she took her time out to meet with us several times prior to our trip. I loved seeing the picture updates she sent and I am so thankful we have found her! I cannot say enough great things!

We are already booking our next vacation due the ease she has provided for us to travel; hopefully Katelyn will agree to watch our pups again :)

Katelyn was a fantastic dog sitter for Daemon. Daemon can be a handful and from the pictures that were sent and what we were told he behaved well and had a blast with KJ (Katelyn's husky). It was great knowing that Daemon was in good hands while we were out of the country for so long.

Katelyn took care of Gordie for one week and he had a great time. Katelyn sent us daily pictures and updates and there were lots of trips to the dog park.
Our Raleigh had a great time staying with Katelyn and KJ! I was so thankful that Katelyn was available on such short notice and was flexible on drop-off and pick-up times. We got a great photo of Raleigh after her trip to the dog park, and she was so exhausted from all the playtime that she passed out immediately in the car-ride home, and napped the whole rest of the day :) We will definitely be bringing Raleigh back to Katelyn's for a week-long stay while we're on vacation in April!

Have you used Katelyn twice now and both times have gone very smooth! Great with picture updates and quick response times. I feel safe leaving my boy here anytime.
Kayla really enjoyed her time with Katelyn and her dog KJ. I would highly recommend them. Katelyn sent pictures throughout Kayla stays with her and Kayla always had a new bone to chew on which she loved!
Rockne loved his time at Katelyn's! We will certainly look to use her in the future as she made sure he got plenty of exercise and play time with other dogs! He came home completely exhausted - mission accomplished.
absolutely LOVED Katelyn. She sent daily updates and photos while we were away on vacation. Kelly had more than enough exercise, attention, and playtime. She lives so conveniently close to a dog park where dogs can run wild and free in a closed comfortable space. Katelyn is definitely our go to dog sitter!

Katelyn is wonderful with our lab Dexter. She sends us pictures and updates and he always looks like he's having a great time! When we pull up in front of her building, he knows where we are and starts pulling at the leash to get in and see her and her dog KJ. She takes both dogs to the dog park and for lots of walks. She's also very easy to get in touch with and quickly responds to messages. We HIGHLY recommend Katelyn!!

Maya Bella returned a wiser, calmer, better pup. Katelyn and KJ (her husky) gave Maya a home away from home that included walks and the dog beach and personal attention. It's the best possible place for my pup to stay when I need to go out of town. Highly recommended!!

My puppy Kayla had such a great time with Katelyn and her dog KJ this past weekend. She came home exhausted. Katelyn was great throughout the entire process. She was able to help coordinate Kayla's stay even on my short time line. We did a meet and greet at the dog park right around the corner from Katelyn's. Also throughout the weekend Katelyn sent me pictures updating me on Kayla and showing me what a good time she was having. I will definitely be thinking of Katelyn next time Kayla needs to go on a doggy vacay.

Lucy loved her stay with Katelyn and KJ. We were kept updated with pictures and text messages. I would highly recommend Katelyn. When we go away again, I will definitely contact Katelyn. Thank you Katelyn (and KJ) for taking such good care of Lucy.

Katelyn is awesome! Our doggie Dexter loved spending time with her while we were on vacation. She maintained great communication with us before and after our trip. She sent us lots of pictures and we were assured that Dex was receiving great care. We would not hesitate to recommend her services to others and hope to see her again!
