About Katie

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have been trying to convince my husband we need another dog so our dog can have a best friend! I haven't succeeded but he's agreed that it's best we serve a dual purpose! Now we can provide friends for Lucy, and help people who need a hand when they aren't able to be around for their pets! My husband and I are both Olympians so we can serve the most active dogs but also know how to relax for the dogs who prefer to take in the scenery! We are coaches at Harvard university so the only time your pet will be alone is during our 2-3 hour practice. Otherwise we will be with them all the time. We live right off the Minute Man bike path and take Lucy for 2-3 walks a day along the path. We know leaving your dog can be stressful. We take the care and love of dogs very seriously and will do all we can to make you and your pet happy and comfortable, We are a friendly, fun, and very caring home and will give your dog lots of attention, love, and play while you're gone, while still keeping as close as possible to the routine and rules you've instilled.

We promise they won't want to leave Lucy's playground when you return!

Katie loves Dogs and lives along the trail in Cambridge with great convenience for walking Dogs. She also has a Dog washing facility. Her Dog is very friendly with other dogs and gets along with all the dogs.

Katie makes a phenomenal pet sitter and I would definitely trust her to take care of my animals! I've seen first hand her take care of her own dog as she would a child and I know she would treat other families furry friends with the same amount of TLC. I would highly recommend her services to anyone who wants their pets to get lots of love, attention, and exercise!

Katie has been a lover of all pets for as long as I can remember. Dogs, cats, birds, horses, you name it, Katie loves them. Katie has watched and cared for my Yorkie, Maple, on many occasions. Each time, I was comforted to know that Maple was well cared for, and I never had to worry. Our family pets are family members and I only want the best for them, and Katie is just that. Any pet owner would be lucky to have her. She gets down on the ground and plays with them, gives them the love they deserve, and has always been careful to feed Maple the correct amount. There have been times Katie has had to give Maple medicine, and each time did so without needing reminders. I highly recommend Katie to all pet owners and am sad she had moved out of my area... She's hard to replace.

Katie was great! I have a particularly shy Chihuahua mix and she did a great job making her feel at home! When I dropped her off, Pixel was hiding behind me and looked as frightened as she does in most new situations. By the time I came to pick Pixel up her tail was wagging and she was already treating the place like it was hers. I also appreciated the pictures throughout the day as they really let me see that my dog does indeed feel safe!
