About Katherine

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name Katherine I will take care of your pet the way you would. I am a music student at Sonoma State and live in a house with a large backyard that your pet will feel comfortable at. Your family member will feel like family in my home. When your pet stays with me they will always have cuddles and attention. I love walks and play times at the park too. I am a responsible and dedicated to the well being of your animal. I have taken care and pet sitting for a number of years and it has only increased my love for animals. Though I love cats immensely, I can not pet sit any cats at my house due to my roommate allergy's, however I can visit your home to take care of them. I am flexible with my schedule.

Our beagle was truly on vacation! He was in great hands! He was very well taken care of.
We typically take him with us when we go out of town and this time was a spur of the moment trip and we would need to find something for our pampered pooch. We never use s kennel for him so we really didn't want to send him someplace where they would lock him up by himself. This really was the best option.
This was a wonderful experience for both us and Bentley. He was happy and cuddled and loved the whole time we were gone. Which made it so easy not to worry about him! I would highly recommend Katherine to anyone who needs a sitter for their pup! She was amazing! We will definitely come back to her if we ever need a quick sitter for Bentley again.
Katherine did a terrific job caring for our dog Bill. When we got back from a one-week vacation he was happy and relaxed, whereas on previous trips he was a traumatized basketcase for several days. She sent pictures regularly, kept us informed always, and was always personable, sweet and upbeat. She is the best.
Katherine saved our vacation! She took our puppy last minute and sent me pictures and updates. I was not from the area and was nervous to leave soja but after dropping him off i felt relived and i trusted her! She even let him sleep in her bed! her roommates are awesome and loved my dog too! Thank you Katherine and roommates!
We are very happy with Katherine and her roommates. My dogs were very content and happy. We will definitely be using Katherine again.
Our two pups (Skipper and Rookie) spent the week with Katherine. They were used to being together a lot and being able to have them stay together in a home environment was the best. We arranged to pick them up for a day trip in the middle of their stay and it was good for them and for us (me and Sister and Brother-in-law). It was Rookie's first time staying away from the family so it eased my sister-in-law's concern about leaving him for a week. We had updates and pics sent every day so we knew how they were doing. They had a fun time too with all the attention they got. We were very pleased with the everything.
I have used Katherine twice to watch our dog, Jasper. Our dog has separation anxiety. The first time I left him with Katherine, she said he barked for a while, but she was able to calm him down. When I dropped him off the second time, he was wagging his tail and so happy to be there. He gave on quick bark when I left, and didn't fret at all after that. He felt safe with her. What a relief.
Cat was not a good match for my Maltese, Bear. I told her in writing and in person that because he was a rescue dog he gets anxious when I leave and he'd need some extra TLC for a day or two. Per Cat, when there was another dog there Bear behaved, but when he left, Bear began acting out. For the first 3 nights he was allowed to sleep upstairs with Cat or one of her 6 roommates, but after that he was banned to sleep alone downstairs because none of them wanted to get up during the night to let him out. Cat complained that Bear barked during the night once he was left downstairs, but I am not surprised since they turned the tables on him. Cat claims she slept on the couch downstairs and he still barked, but that makes no sense to me. If she had made any kind of a bond with him he would have settled right down. She also complained that he peed in the house on the tile floor. When I asked if it was because he was left alone, she said that even though she had a heavy class schedule, he was never left alone for more than 1 1/2 hours because one of her six roommates would be there. I asked if DogVacay vetted her roommates since she was delegating my dog's care to them; she only said that she was vetted. I do not dispute that Bear challenged them and acted out, especially by peeing in the house. My question is why, when this hasn't happened before? She said he was not ill treated, but she sent him home with a dirty butt, so I guess we disagree on the care he deserves.
Katherine took great care of my dog. She texted me every day photo's of her with my dog. I was very impressed with her.
Katherine took great care of our Labrador for the weekend. He got plenty of attention and came home tired!
Katherine has been very reliable and professional, leaving notes about the details of her visit with the dogs. I really appreciate this. She is also working with Daisy on training at my request. My dogs love all the kind attention from Katherine. I would definitely recommend her!
My Bella had such a fun Dogvacay at Katherine's home. Katherine made my husband & I feel very comfortable with leaving Bella with her and she was also very accomadating to our schedule. Highly recommend. Thank you!
Katherine was an excellent host for our 10 month old german shepherd / lab puppy. He had excellent play spaces inside her house and in the back yard and seemed relaxed and happy when we picked him up. Additionally, Katherine was flexible about pickup and dropoff and sent several "pupdate" photos while we were away.
I think my GSD had a great time with Katherine. I was looking for a dog sitter at short notice while builders worked on some roof repairs and Katherine was able to accommodate all my needs (and my dog's). Because I was still in town, I visited throughout the week to take him for walks, and in my absence Katherine included him in lots of outings, and she lives in a pleasant neighborhood with nice walks and parks nearby. This was my first time using Dog Vacay and Katherine as a sitter and I'm glad I made the switch from using a dog lodge. My dog is just happier this way and I won't hesitate to use Katherine again.
Katherine seriously helped us out when we needed a sitter last minute. She sent us pictures of Argos during his stay and was very flexible with pick up and drop off time. ??????????
Katherine was wonderful. My dog Rosie could not have been happier. I would definitely book another stay.
This is the first time I used DogVacay and I am glad I found them and Katherine. Our two dogs Finn and Milo were with her for 3 weeks and it was great knowing they were being cared for in a private home. Our trip to Spain was more enjoyable knowing they were well taken care of. Katherine sent photos during their stay and they looked happy and loved. I highly recommend Katherine and DogVacay.
Katherine is great with my dog! She has many years of experience and Ollie loves spending time with her. She helps out with Ollie around three times a week!
Katherine did a fantastic job caring for both our Dogs. I would highly recommend her. Very professional on all levels.
