About Katherine

16 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello and welcome to Paws of Love!

I have been taking care of dogs ever since I can remember. My family used word of mouth to find people who would need someone to take care of their dog. While doing this, the dogs would stay at our house. This stopped shortly after we got our own dog though, and I have been missing the variety of dogs we would get ever since.

Because we still have our adorable but territorial pup, Lily, I can't take care of dogs at our house. I have no problem with going to other people's houses to take care of the dogs there. I have done this before for Molly, the westie that used to be on the small milk bone dog box. I also have taken care of my sister's dog when she would have to work longer shifts or when her pup, Kirby, ended up getting a paw infection.

I do work outside of dogvacay bookings. I recently was hired at the Great River Pet Center which is a grooming/boarding facility. We board dogs and cats, do walk in baths/nail trims, and full grooms. It is fun and rewarding work. It also helps me get more time with a variety of dogs and cats. Usually, I will work in the morning from 7-1 although sometimes I am set to work from 1-7. I would return after work.

Each stay will include at least 3 walks and as much attention as your dog begs for. Other options that I offer are baths, additional walks, and care for elderly, disabled, or sick dogs. I also am able to do nail trims for any dogs that need it.

I look forward to taking care of any and all dogs that come my way.

Katherine did a great job taking care of our Golden Doodle, Lily. She updated us daily and the house was exactly the way we left it. We would definitely use her again without question.
Katherine is great. This was our second time having her watch Sheila. She does really well with her and is very easy for us in working with her.
Katherine did great. I will use her again. She is very sweet to the dogs n communicates n sends pics often.
Katherine arrived promptly at the scheduled time. She sent us regular text message updates that included photos of our dogs which helped to put our minds at ease. When we arrived home our house we clean and in order. It was apparent that she had taken to arrange things for us. We would definitely recommend Katherine and plan to utilize her services again. Having her was a great alternative to the kennel. We felt comfortable that our dogs and and home were being well care for in our absence.

We continue to use Katherine because she is so reliable and loves our pets!
Katherine did a great job dog sitting for us once again. She is so dependable, trust-worthy and pleasant. Darby absolutely loves her!! And we couldn't be more pleased with our experience with her. She keeps us informed by text, pictures, phone calls and emails. We will definitely be calling upon her again. Thank you Katherine!

Katherine was wonderful. She took care of our 14.5 year old Lucy like a pro that she is. I would highly recommend her.
Katherine did an awesome job this past weekend taking care of our furry boys. She watched them at our place for three nights when we were in DC for a wedding. She sent us picks every night and kept us posted on how things were going. You know your pets have been taken care of well when they don't come rushing to you the second you walk in the door. We are looking forward to her taking care of our pets again in a couple of weeks :)

Katherine was great! We were so fortunate to find her! Our dog fell in love with her. We knew right away that she would be a good fit for our wire fox terrier. She is a dog-lover, very professional, knowledgeable, and extremely reliable. We appreciated the photos she emailed us, too. It was so nice to come home to a calm, happy, and relaxed "fur baby". We will be calling upon Katherine to dog-sit for us again!

We love Katherine! We have used her several times and she is just perfect for our animals.
Katherine was great and Tucker loved her. She was very easy to communicate with and flexible during scheduling. I'd recommend her for all pets.
I love Katherine! This is the third time she has sat for us and I always feel good when I leave my pets in her hands. She updates us every day and even picked up branches from a storm last night. She is the best!
We love Katherine - this was yet another successful vacay for Charlie, Lilly and Teddy. Katherine and her mom, Nancy are both so wonderful. They both love my pups and we have grown so found of Katherine sitting for us. She is just amazing!
This is the 2nd time we have had Katherine take care of our animals. I feel totally comfortable leaving our kids in her care. WE always get pictures and a message each day, the house is clean when we get home and everyone is happy!
Katherine is a gem! This is the second time she has sat with Chip and Peebles. Both were glad to see her again. They both enjoy all the rubs and attention she give them. Thank you!!!!! Will definitely use K. again, especially for all our away trips.

This was the second time Katherine dog sat for us and I felt so comfortable leaving my three pups with her. She is a wonderful sitter and very attentive to their every needs. My female pup, Lilly, was terrified during a thunderstorm and Katherine made sure she checked in with me to let me know how she was doing. Her mother is also a joy, she payed a visit to spoil my pups while I was out as well. I will definitely be calling on Katherine to sit for us again in the near future. Thanks so much for all you do!

Katherine was amazing with my three pups! I could not have asked for a better sitter. She was extremely attentive and loving (I got daily photos of my pups bonding with her over the holidays). I really liked that Katherine and her mother both came over to meet us and check things out beforehand to make sure we were all a good fit. Katherine's mother is a joy as well. I felt very confident leaving my pups with Katherine. She brushed them and snuggled with them and made sure they didn't miss me too much. I arrived after an 11-day trip and came home to a spotless home and happy pups. I am definitely going to make Katherine our number one choice for future dogvacays, she is wonderful and my pups absolutely loved her!
