About Katrina

22 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Note: Due to my pregnancy, I'm not able to watch any dogs for a while. Hopefully I'll feel better soon so I can start again!

I have two young boys. I've been a lover of animals since a very young girl. Growing up my family (mostly me) always had pets namely cats, dogs, gerbils, toads, rabbits, guinea pigs, birds and fish. I spent one entire summer as a volunteer at a zoo and was in direct contact with the animals and worked with the public in educating them about the animals I cared for.

I own a 1-story home with my husband, who is serving our country as an Airman in the United States Air Force. We have about half an acre of cement lined 6' fence surrounding the entirety of our yard. Also have a smaller fenced in area that is roofed with chairs for pet and human lounging. This area can be used to separate dogs I watch at home from my dogs if they need to be separated. Currently our ground is dirt or cement but we hope to one day have grass and more trees. Having lived in the Eastern United States, plants and greenery are another love of mine.

This was our first time using an on-line dog-sitting service and the experience has been a very positive one. We had gotten our rescue puppy at 8 weeks old for about 3 1/2 months only and were very worried about having to leave him with a stranger and at strange place for over a week. We were very fortunate to have found Katrina.

Katrina was a wonderful sitter to my super-energetic little mixed breed pup. After our meet-and-greet appointment, we were immediately comfortable with her. She was professional, responsive, and easy to work with. Even though the canine side of the meeting was sort of chaotic, we felt that there was much dog sense and love for the animal in her that things would eventually work out when we removed ourselves from the picture.

Katrina kept in close contact with us throughout the 8 days that we were away. There was daily update of our pup and we knew that he was always happily wrestling with one of her dogs.

We'd not hesitate to recommend Katrina's service to anyone.
This is the first time I have left Dargo with anyone, especially a stranger. Katrinais very welcoming and easy to talk to. Dargo was comfortable when we met her. He was well taken care of and the texts and pictures were comforting. We brought him back to Katrina's the next night and instant tail wagging. I would highly recommend Katrina.
Katrina was a great doggy sitter. I was afraid to leave my Finley, because he has separation issues, but shortly after we left, Katrina sent me a video of her walking Finley and that melted my heart. Katrina sent me text pictures and more video's of Finley walking around inside her house making him self at home.
Will use Katrina again, and would highly recommend her to watch your furry family member.:)
Katrina did an awesome job taking care of our pup. Our first time using dogvacay, we will definitely book with Katrina again. Excellent communication and love the pictures she sent during the day.
Katrina was awesome with my puppy. She was welcoming and flexible with scheduling my dog for daycare. He comes home happy and sleepy. She sent updates during the day which was nice. He loves going to her house so much he refuses to leave and I carry him to my car at the end of the day! I highly recommend Katrina and will continue to to be a repeat guest.
Katrina was a lifesaver to us. Literally, on our way to the airport, dropping of our small dog Basil, we found out the previously booked host had changed locations and was now in an unsafe property with no fencing. I did not want to go on vacation knowing my small dog was potentially exposed to coyotes, snakes and wild dogs. We had to find another host asap and Katrina was great, we went over to her house, checked, liked what we saw and the atmosphere with other dogs and kids and knew Basil would be safe. Not only was he safe, we are wondering who had the better vacation, us or Basil? He got to enjoy good company, sleep on laps and sofas, play with the other dogs and kids and looked so happy in all the photos Katrina send us. We could not have asked for a better host and will definitely use her again in the future.
I was very hesitant to leave my dogs anywhere, they are older and haven't spent the night away from home. I have no intentions of putting them in a kennel or a crate. So Katrina opened up her home to my guys. I do believe they loved it. They had free range of the house just like home. Whenever she sent me pictures or videos of my guys it was just as the f they belonged there. I will definitely use Katrina again and recommend her. Thank you Katrina for taking such awesome care of Ozzie and Scrappy.
Katrina took great care of my dog. He came back healthy and happy. The yard is spacious, clean, and safe. I loved receiving the photos and videos of him. Katrina is easy to work with and will love your pet as her own. A heartfelt thanks to Katrina.
Katrina is very professional and friendly. She has dogs of her own so it's nice that she can relate. I had an emergency and had to leave the dog for another day last minute and she was very flexible. I would definitely recommend her to others: )
My Shadow had a ball with Katrina. She kept us posted on his activities, we received many pictures, she was very kind and welcoming. I definitely recommend And will use Katrina again.
Katrina was quick to accommodate to my pups needs. She made me feel at ease while I was on vacation. She sent pictures and let me know how they were doing. Katrina is awesome and definitely will rebook with her in the future.
If you don't treat your dog like you would love to be treated then I suggest you not leave her with Katrina and family. She may refuse to go home with you after her amazing vacation at Katrina's. These people are awesome. Most people don't treat their own kids as well as they cared for my dog. I will definitely use her again.
I found a home away from home for my fur kids with Katrina. She is very nice and treats them as if they were her own, and I love that! My pups get along great with her family and dogs. They always come home exhausted from having fun! She spoils them to the max, sends pictures, lots of play time, constant updates, which is everything you want in a dog sitter. Katrina will always be my first choice for future visits.
I really enjoyed myself while I was in vacation knowing that my dog Nikko was in good hands. I received pictures and texts required my dogcation. I will be using Katrina again. ❤️
Katrina was amazing, this was my first time ever leaving my dog with someone I didn't know but she did a great job with my puppy. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who's looking for someone to take care of their dog. Thanks Katrina you will always be my first choice when it comes to doggy sitting.
Katrina was amazing, She took my Husky in during a last minute cancelation of my first dog sitter. And it was very last minute. Katrina sent me pictures and videos everyday, and went above and beyond to make my Husky feel comfortable and at home. She even bathed him to my surprise. If there's any doubt in your mind about booking with Katrina, Im here to tell you to let it go and look no further. I will use her service in the future. Thank You Katrina!!!
Katrina was a life saver, we began our search as a last resort, we are newbies to the idea of leaving our English bulldog with a dog sitter. Fortunately we found Katrina and she helped us very much. Since we were going away for the holidays and last minute we needed someone fast, she was very willing to work with us as far as our schedule was concerned and she kept us updated on our little Munchies through pictures and texts!! Katrina will be our first choice next time we have to leave our Munchies behind!! P.s Munchies misses the new friends he made!!
Katrina was awesome! She was very caring and concerned for our fur baby. As a few conditions changed while we were gone. Katrina was flexible and was able to change how our Emmitt was cared for. She kept great communication with us and sent photos and videos. This was the first time using a pet sitter, or even Dog Vacay. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for someone to give your pup lots of TLC while you are away.
