As dog hosts ourselves, we expect a lot of our dogs host! Cathy was great and certainly lived up to our expectations! She took such good care of our Frenchy. Our dog takes several pills due to some health issues, and Cathy had no problem giving them to her. Plus, she didn't charge any extra. While our dog was there, she ran out of pill pockets and Cathy had no problem getting more for us. She was so easy going about the whole thing. On top of the pills our Frenchy takes, she had just had some tumors removed and had staples. Cathy watched her to make sure she didn't go at them, and was regularly telling us how she was doing with them.
Cathy also texted us several times a day with pictures and updates. We never worried about her and felt so comfortable that our baby was in good hands. We couldn't have asked for a better host and am looking forward to using her again! Thanks Cathy
The meet and great went very well. So I felt Comfortable when I dropped Snickers off for a whole day. Cathy is calm and collect with the dogs I could tell she has great control over them. I highly recommend her.
Cathy was a great babysitter for my little Maltese Alfie, he usually gets anxiety when I leave, but she gave him lots of love and care and made him feel at home. Took him for walks, let him sit on her lap and pet him, he got to play with her two little dogs and hang out with them. She sent me daily pictures and updates, she did a great job taking care of him and made me feel at ease. I would most definitely use Cathy again to watch my little guy.
