About Katie

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Brian and I are dog lovers and love that dogvacay lets us spend time with all kinds of dogs and meet fellow dog-lovers. We watch all kinds of dogs, from small pups to extra large pups. The only thing we ask is a meet-and-greet prior to boarding so that we know if your dog(s) get along with Mona, our Staffy. She goes to City Bark often and gets along great with the dogs and loves visitors, but it's always a good idea to test dog-ality compatibility. If you're from out of town and this isn't a possibility, a quick conversation about your pup should suffice :)

About our place: There is a completely enclosed cement back yard and a park down the street for fetch and walks. Dogs can't even sneak under the house, it has screens blocking it.

We have a large living room/dining room in our apartment. We have a bathtub for baths and lots of space for lounging.

My boyfriend and I get home everyday at 5 pm for walks and we are available before work for a morning walk. We spend most of our weekends at home so we will be spending plenty of quality time with your dog(s). I send photo updates at least once a day, usually more!

I grew up with a chocolate lab and I have loved dogs ever since! I will treat your dog as my own and enjoy my time with them, borrowing them for the duration of your time away :). Our dog Mona loves other dogs and enjoys when other dogs come to visit because she has a new buddy to play and lounge with!

Katie was awesome! She loved Mabel like her own dog and took amazing care of her. Highly recommend and Mabel will be back!
Our dog had a wonderful time with Katie and I she did not want to leave! Thank you so much for taking such good care of her. I will not hesitate to book another dogvacay with Katie again.
Katie is wonderful, can't recommend her enough! She sent us adorable photos and videos of our hound Lillie throughout the weekend (and Lillie was clearly enjoying all her quality time with Katie!). We came home to a relaxed, very happy pup. Will definitely be using Katie again!

Katie was wonderful! Super responsive and flexible, and my dog had a great time!
Katie was great and my girl loved staying with her! Zoe got lots of cuddles while we were away, so I knew she was happy and comfortable. :) Katie sent plenty of photos and I'm very confident that Zoe was well cared for!
Jinx had great time last year at Katie's! He was sad at the beginning of the stay, but sleeping on her bed made him feel right at home, and by the 2nd day he was back to his happy self. Katie sent lots of updates and pictures which I really appreciated.

Katie was great. The dogs played well and pictures were great. Times for pick up and drop off were very flexible.
Katie took great care with my dog, Cooper. She treated him like her own,,,it was good knowing that he was in such good hands.
She sent lots of pictures. My dog misses their dog as she seems sad to havet. Will definitely use them again!
Katie and Brian were fantastic hosts! Katie sent lots of photos and my dog got along really well with Mona. I will definitely use them in the future!
Brindle had a great time with Katie. I received multiple picture and photos of Brindle playing with their dog, Mona. They really hit it off. I highly recommend Katie. It was great to see my dog so happy and well cared for.
Katie was amazing with our little one. She kept us updated with pics of their adventures. I highly recommend her and would trust her with my pup again in the future!
Our pup spent a week with Katie and it was fantastic. Katie brought him for walks or to the dog park every morning before work and after. When our pup got into some pistachios (because he does that) she was super proactive and communicative on dealing with it. All was good and we couldn't have been happier

Katie and Brian were great! We got pics every day of Peter having a great time with them. They were very flexible with pick-up and drop-off times and they took Peter on walks. We were very pleased, and will definitely call on them in the future!
Katie and her boyfriend Brian are awesome. They took great care of my dog Tux and even took him to the park to play fetch! They were also very flexible with pick up and drop off times.
Katie was outstanding with Sofia. I made a small mistake by forgetting to put that I wanted to drop off Sofia on Friday night before my Saturday flight, and Katie made that a non-issue and was agreeable. Her and Brian were caring and loving to Sofia, and gave me some nice photos and kept me in the loop. Sofia gave kisses goodbye and I know we will both be seeing these guys again.

Please know that Katie and her boyfriend were so awesome to deal with. They took our puppy in for a night while passing through New Orleans and we couldn't have been more satisfied. They are extremely nice and helpful, and have 2 great dogs of their own that kept our little guy fully entertained. I would highly recommend Katie for taking care of your dog.

It was obvious that my dog received great care and Katie was very responsive to my schedule regarding drop off and pick up.
Katie was an excellent host for our big boy Andy. She was professional, fun, punctual, and put our minds at ease while we were away. I strongly recommend her as a host!
Katie provided a warm and welcoming environment for my dog. She was understanding about the dog's health issues and made accommodations to address her special needs. I will certainly ask her to host my dog again.
We are from Atlanta We had week long Auburn, AL to rural Louisiana to New Orleans road trip. Our kids and our dog who rolls with us all the time were in tow. The New Orleans trip was kidless and because we were staying with another couple in a pet-free studio apartment they rented for our time there, we realized we had not thought through where in the world our 11lb malshi would stay. Our intention was to leave for Atlanta from New Orleans, leaving our kids for a week long visit with their grandparents in rural Louisiana so we didn't want to have to go backwards in that drive to get our dog. Enter dogvacay after a simple google search. It sounded more homey and was less expensive than some of the boarding sites I ran across. Loved the price point and pictures Katie A offered. Got an instant warm and fuzzy feeling. Got to her apartment that was close to our hotel and New Orleans activities for the weekend. We quickly dropped off our Pepper and went off to enjoy our weekend worry free. We were so surprised to get dogvacay emails thrice with pictures and messages. She chilled on Katie's sofa, accompanied Katie and her beau to a breakfast spot, and even slept with Katie. We are singing dogvacay and Katie A's praises. Our Pepper was in excellent hands.

We came from NY traveling cross country and stopped in NOLA. Katie was very friendly and took care of Lola (our Fr. Bulldog). We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a dog sitter in the big easy. Thanks Katie!
