About Catherine

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I work from home part time and can offer a lot of attention and care for your dog. My oversized city lot is fenced and secure, and dog friendly.

My neighborhood is great for dog walks. A regular stay includes a neighborhood walk.

I will take your dog to Alston Park, Kennedy Park, or other designated areas for longer walks on request, for an extra fee.

I can transport your dog at the rate of $25 per hour for my time.

Multiple-dogs discount: The first dog is hosted at the regular price. Additional dogs are hosted at half the regular price.

PS. I have 2 reviews that say the dogs were "too much for me". Since I can't respond to those reviews directly, I will respond here instead. In both cases these were dogs with behavior issues; one dog was very destructive, requiring almost constant monitoring to keep him from destroying things. The other dog was very reactive and aggressive toward other dogs while on walks in the neighborhood, and was mouthy and bitey with me. In both cases they were great dogs, but in my opinion they would benefit from more training, to work on modifying and correcting these behaviors. Thanks.

Highly recommended!
Once again Catherine took very good care of our little guy. We were able to enjoy our vacation knowing he was in a safe and loving home. We highly recommend her!
Catherine was very accessible and took great care of my dog. I would highly recommend her.
Catherine was great! Fantastic communication and very accommodating. Remy was in great spirits when we picked him up!
Catherine was wonderful! I needed someone I could trust to watch "our baby" during a very stressful weekend and I never worried about him the whole time. He was in a safe environment and well taken care of. I highly recommend Catherine!
Super reliable!
Catherine was very accomodating with our chihuahua, Cooper. She worked her schedule around ours and did a great job keeping our little guy happy while we were away. We loved the pictures she sent! Highly recommended.
Cathy and her dog were friendly, welcoming hosts and took good care of my dog. Would recommend!
Our two doggies were loved and well cared for by Catherine. Our dog Bella is proving to be a novice escape artist, and Catherine was very receptive to our requests and directions to keep our Bella safe and secured. Catherine has a very sweet female lab of her own, and our doggies loved playing with her. Catherine was quick to exchange text updates and even sent us photos of our dogs enjoying their stay with her.

Catherine is a very nice, gracious host and was accommodating to my schedule in terms of pick up / drop off times. I would absolutely recommend her for owners with dogs that are mellow. Agreeing with a previous review, my high energy lab mix is way too much for her to handle. I appreciated her being honest with me about this upon pick up. However, like I said, if you have a mellow dog looking for a calm, comfortable weekend field trip I would recommend Catherine.

Tinker loved her stay with Catherine and Kali (sp?). She can't wait for us to go away again so she can go back.
My active lab was a bit too much for this host.
Our elderly Miniature Poodle seemed very happy At Catherine's home and we very happy to Enjoy 3 days in Sonoma, knowing she was well Cared for. We applaud DogVacay!
Catherine was the best. I felt happy to leave Tinker with her and know that she was very well treated. Would absolutely use her again.
Fantastic experience. She was great with my dog. I was a little worried about leaving her with a stranger but she made me feel so comfortable I never even worried about how Romy was doing. I would definately recommend her to other dog owners!
