About Kathy

16 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Thank you for visiting!

I've recently relocated to my home town of Lexington, Kentucky. I moved here to be closer to my wonderful Mother.

I've been around dogs my whole life and love them all wholeheartedly. I promise to give the absolute best care to your very special furry companion while you're apart.

I'm PetTech trained in Pet CPR & First-Aid, and comfortable giving medications and injections.

A little about me:
I'm a long time craft enthusiast who has many, many projects going at once. My background also includes being the sole owner of a small aromatherapy business, massage and craniosacral therapist, transcriptionist, and pastry chef.

"Kathy is just plain awesome with our dogs, Howdy and Lady! She's watched our guys several times over the past four years when we've had to go out of town on business and I feel so secure leaving them with her. She's so attentive to our guys and good about letting us know if one of them had something we should be aware of. I never have to worry when they're with her because I know Kathy has their best interest at heart. I highly recommend Kathy. I seriously have never met a dog that does not LOVE her!"

"If ever there were a dog lover ... You could not go wrong having Kathy look after your four-legged family members! She is attentive to their dietary needs and really enjoys playing with them."

My dogs were so happy! Thank you Kathy
Kathy took care of our pup so well that I think she went through a withdrawal of sorts when she came home with us. Pictures and updates were sent to keep us up to date on our pup. Couldn't have asked for anything more. Will definitely entrust our pup to Kathy again.
Kathy did a great job with our dog Charlie. She sent lots of photos of him while we were out of town and treated him like her own. Kathy also made it very convenient to drop him off and pick him up which was a great help with our travel schedule. We will definitely use her again next time Charlie needs a vacation!
During our meet and great it was obvious that Kathy love dogs and I felt comfortable leaving Lexie with her. She gave Lexie lots of attention and love while I was out of town, and she was great about sending me updates and pictures to let me know how she was doing. It was clear that Lexie had a great stay and enjoyed her time there. I highly recommend this host! I will continue to come back.
Kathy did great with Gideon and visa versa. So happy to find someone that we felt very comfortable leaving him with. Never worried about him even though this was the first time we had ever left him. Much better than a kennel. She also kept me posted with messages and pictures.
Kathy is great! My husband and I just moved to the area and we got a new puppy last year. For our wedding we were away for over a week and didn't know what to do with our new dog. We, of course, are so protective over her and wanted to find someone we could trust. Kathy was amazing! Olive was able to run in a huge yard and socialize with other dogs. Kathy loves dogs and took great care of our puppy. We also left my mother in laws dog, Annie, with Kathy too and both had a great time for their first time away from home! I would trust Kathy to watch Olive or Annie again anytime!
Leaving our dog with Kathy was a great experience! She is an excellent host with a beautiful home and large yard. She has two friendly dogs that welcomed ours right away. She responds quickly to emails and is very easy to work with on times/dates. We trust her completely and will definitely leave our dog with her again next time we're in the area.
Great experience! Kathy and John are extremely professional, trustworthy and caring. Kathy was very prompt and responsive to all my communication and was very caring and kind to my dog Kona. Their yard is absolutely as advertised and then some - a huge, safe backyard that is completely fenced in and well maintained. My dog is a runner and he was well at home in the gigantic backyard!

Kathy was also great about sending multiple pictures of Kona while he was playing over his weekend stay, and she even bundled him up with a nice warm blanket when he went to sleep at night! You can really tell Kathy is a dog lover and cares deeply for all the dogs under her care.

Kona will definitely be staying with Kathy and John again, highly recommended.
