About Katie

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi. I'm Katie!
Give your beloved pet their own staycation by allowing us to roll out the red carpet to our home, where your pet can enjoy the run of our 2-story house and enjoy playing in our fully-fenced in backyard.

We LOVE the added life our doggie visitors bring to our home and we will welcome yours as part of our family.

During their stay, they will rarely be left alone, as I am a stay at home mom to 3 animal-loving young boys who absolutely love to play with and dote on our doggie visitors!

We have one full time resident named Chloe, who is a 12 year old King Charles, She has an extremely sweet and gentle demeanor, and loves all our canine guests.

Your doggie 'stayca' includes a large backyard to romp and roam, and is as safe as can be, as we are the last home on a cul-de-sac inside a gated community.

With all the stress that comes with travel, wouldn't it be nice to know your four-footed friend is safe and enjoying themselves in a fun environment?

We will follow feeding, walking and any other special instructions required, and you can expect at least 1-2 photos/videos a day from your little one while you're away, so that you can make sure your love is perfectly happy and enjoying their stay!

** Our overnight boarding fee is for 24 hours of fun and relaxation. It's not a problem if you need more time, we can easily add on our daycare rate for any additional time needed.

** Please note- We want our guests and our family to enjoy you pets stay, so we ask that you pick up your fur baby no later than 7pm.

A friend recommended Katie to us, and I'm so glad he did. What's great about Katie over other doggie sitters (and we've tried 3) is that Katie's home isn't just 'her' home, it's there's. Their whole family takes part in making our pet loved.
We have a 7 year old Akita, 'Ping Pong' and when we showed up, he wasn't just allowed in, he was immediately made a part of their family. Before we even left he was sitting up on the coach with her two boys watching Maya the Bee, and before we boarded our 8pm flight, we got our first picture from Katie showing PingPong cuddled up in the bed of one of her boys, titled. "I guess the boys will be taking turns who gets to sleep with PingPong".... It was adorable and really made us feel incredible. Our trip was to Arizona for a work convention, so I can honestly say Ping had a better vaca than we did.

One word: AMAZING!! Katie has taken care of my Maltese, Max, the last few times we were out of town and it has been such a relief to find someone so caring and trustworthy, who I know will take care of my dog like one of her own. I love that she sends me photo updates so I know Max is having a great time, but don't feel like I'm bothering her asking about him! Max always gets excited when he gets to Katie's house and comes home clean and happy! Katie is the BEST!

Katie Q is AMAZING!!! My wife and I have a French Bulldog named Boo who we normally board in Corona. Our usual dogsitter had a family emergency and we needed to find a replacement as quickly as possible. As anyone with a fur baby knows, it's nerve-racking to have to drop your dog off at a complete stranger's house on a moment's notice, but Katie made all of the difference!!! Having tried more than a few of the other sitters in Irvine who have numerous reviews and super high ratings, none of them even came CLOSE to matching the warmth and personality of Katie. Even from our first meeting with her, we could tell that she was a FANTASTIC person with a beautiful home who truly LOVED dogs!!! Katie's winning personality meant a lot to my wife and I, because, honestly, what dog isn't going to come home happy and tired after getting to play with other dogs all day? Katie was the true selling point and reason for this review, as she made us feel like we were leaving our dog at a trusted friend or family member's house. We will DEFINITELY be using her in the future for our dogsitting needs, and we can't recommend her enough.
Katie and her family treated my dog like family! We were so happy to have him stay with them. I received pictures and updates and could see how much fun he was having. I highly recommend Katie.
Katie is great!! I needed a last minute dog sitter (overnight), and was scared that I wouldn't find anyone. She responded asap and she told me she could care for my pupper, Surprise. She has a nice home inside a gated community, and she also has a large gated fence outside with plenty of grass! She also has kind, cute, respectful kids who also help dog sit, and they really helped my dog socialize a bit since she was a bit shy/scared. Surprise came out more social and less scared after the night! Katie is very kind and I will gladly rebook another reservation with her soon! :) Also, her dog Chloe is so cute and chill!
Katie and her family are wonderful! A beautiful home in a gated community is a great place for your pet to stay. Very accommodating and definitely will use again!
Katie is awesome! My husband and I had her watch our dog Max over Thanksgiving and she did a fantastic job! She was very flexible on our drop off time (we had a late flight), which we really appreciated. We got daily photos of Max, and he seemed to be enjoying himself the entire time he was there! It seems like her entire family gets involved in taking care of the dogs, so Max got an abundance of love and attention :) ! I highly recommend her!
My little Paneer had a great vacation at Katie's!
Katie sent me daily updates with photos, which was very appreciated. She always answered my texts promptly.
Paneer had a lot of fun with other dogs too.
It was very peaceful for me to know that my dog was in a loving and caring house with other dogs to play with and a backyard.
Katie was very accommodating to my last minute reservation. The family treated my puppy with lots of love and attention. I really appreciated the daily photo updates and the abundant space for her to roam around their home. I will definitely be booking with her again!
I am new to the area and was lucky to find such a great sitter! Katie and her family took great care of my pup while I was away and I received pics throughout the day of my dog enjoying his stay.
She was awesome! My little guy did not want to come back home! He was so depressed when he leave Kaite's home.
Katie was wonderful and accommodating. I booked last minute and she happily accepted! As we were nervous to leave our 2 pups, she immediately updated us within the first hour to let us know how our babies were adjusting. She even offered to let them sleep in her bed but they chose to sleep in their crate. Her kids gave my little pup cuddles, which I know he loves. I know it's a hassle that my pups are used to always having outdoor access, but she accommodated for that too. She was very pleasant and kind. We will definitely use her again!
