About Kathy

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have been fervent about animals since I was a child and this love for animals has grown over the years. I have been pet parent to many dogs as well as cats. Currently, my fur baby is 9 years old rescued from a puppy mill when he was 2 months old. :)

Your dog is given the same amount of love and care as I do for my own. In home dog boarding provides a normal, natural environment with lots of love.

We have a fenced, spacious backyard but your dog is not left unattended, and is always accompanied by me to play, exercise and attend to needs. Please remember to bring a leash and collar for walks!

My goal is to make your furbaby feel as relaxed here as in your own home. We have a doggie den they can freely come and go when they need to play or have quiet time. Dogs love the playpen set up in the dog den just for them with comfy pillows, blankets and comforters. Others simply prefer the couch ~ but your furkid has free run of the house and will be quite comfortable!

With daily photos, via text or email, I will keep you updated on your pet's visit, so you can enjoy your vacation and know they are having a wonderful time, too!

I ask you to bring their own food to avoid digestive issues. You're welcome to bring any toys and other comfort items they may need, such as blankets and beds. We do have plenty of fresh, clean blankets but if your furkid has separation anxiety, their own belongings do help make their stay more relaxed. Little ones who sleep in your bed will sleep in mine.

I provide a fun and friendly place for your dog to be happy in when you're away, with the personal care and attention that a commercial dog kennel just isn't able to provide.
If you need your dog crated to keep within a training routine, just bring it with you!

Please let me know if your pet has any quirks or odd behaviors I should be made aware of, sensitive areas of the body which shouldn't be touched, special diets that need to be followed or anything at all that you feel is important to his or her well being. If your pet has been diagnosed with any medical issue I can administer meds, please let me know all the details for the protection of your, and my own, dog. Up to date rabies records needs to accompany your furkid during his or her visit.

I typically watch for one pet parent at a time but occasionally reservations may overlap due to travel delays, etc. If this occurs, we do have separate areas we are able to utilize so that small and large dogs have no contact with each other, according to their temperament.

My dog Eddie is very friendly and loves the company of other dogs!

We're unable to accommodate cats for boarding, but I'm available to come to your home for cat and kitten care. At this time, we're unable to accept Bully breeds (pit bulls, bull mastiffs, bull dogs) for boarding, but am happy to come to you for petsits.

We primarily board small to medium dogs up to 55 lbs.

I'm a member of the National Association for Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS). NAPPS members have unlimited access to educational resources and training to help increase knowledge on providing excellent pet care. I'm also Red Cross CPR Certified, insured and bonded with Pet Sitters Assocs for pet sitting in your home. I'm happy to come to you to care for your pet.

Short stays to long stays to everything in between, we're as close to home as it gets.
I give you the peace of mind you need for the care of your pet while you're away. Let your pet stay today in a PAWSitively pawsome loving home!

Wonderful home and Kathy is very organized. She sent us a text every morning with photos of Bo laying on sofa. I think he wanted to stay when I came for him. Highly recommend.
Great experience! Very friendly and I felt very comfortable leaving my dog! I received great photos and updates. I think my dog was sad to leave!
There is literally no one else I want to leave my dog with then Kathy when we go for anything overnights. We always go to her, she sends a ton of pictures which I love! I trust her and feel thankful I can leave him in her care.
We can't say enough how wonderful Kathy was for the entire dogvacay.She sent pics and texts everyday to put our minds at ease and enjoy our vacation.Kathy is like all the other pet parents that treat their pets like kids.She lets them get on the furniture, she worries and loves them just as you would.I highly recommend Kathy to everyone.I will continue to use Kathy for any future dogvacays.Rossi had a good time and I think she's gonna miss Kathy and Eddie and family. Forever Grateful Kathy you are totally pawsome.

Kathy. Did a great job watching our 2 girls. It was the night of my wedding and Kathy stayed at our home. She arrived 15 minutes early, and kept us updated with several texts, and photos during the evening. The dogs seemed to really enjoy Kathy's company. Thanks again :)

Kathy is absolutely AMAZINGGG. I needed a sitter on short notice and I feel like I won the jackpot. She sent lots of updates and photos via text which I greatly appreciated and gave him tons of love and affection through play time, walks and treats. Not only did she provide amazing care, she is experienced and knowledgeable. I strongly recommend her if you want the best attention for your pup. I know I will definitely be using her again.

Alika's stay with Kathy and her adorable dog, Eddie, was a dream for her and for Me! To say everything went smoothly would be such an understatement! Kathy is not just a "dog sitter" she is the segregate pet mommy I could have only dreamed of until meeting and having my Alika stay with her for two Nights!
I could not be happier with her care of my pet baby. From beginning to end Kathy keept me updated with adorable pictures as well as assurance that Alika was happy and doing Well! That meant the world to me while I was Away!
Kathy's comfortable cozy home, great yard, walks were all fantastic, but most important to me, Kathy is a true animal lover and her guest dogs get the benefit of her love and care of Them! Alika says woof woof I love you Kathy!
Thank you so much,
Sandy

Kathy regularly walks and even brushed my baby, he was so fluffy when she brought him home. She sends me lots of photos and texts and I can see from his photos how much fun he has! Thank you Kathy for making his time away from home less stressful on all of us.

Marley, my lab mix, had a great time! She was very flexible and kind.
Thanks Kathy for watching Bradley on short notice, he seems like he had such a great time he came home and took a very long nap thanks for being able to work with my schedule.
Kathy watched our dog over the weekend while we were away. We were incredibly happy with the experience from start to finish. She was very responsive and easy to get in touch with from the very start. Our dog seemed quite comfortable with her and not stressed or upset at all when we picked him up. He got along well with her little dog Eddy. We received so many updates and photos, she's a very caring person and we didnt worry a moment we were gone. We will ask Kathy to watch our dog again next time we need to and highly recommend her to anyone who needs to leave their dog for awhile.

My dog doesn't do well with strangers so I was worried abut leaving him with someone else. However, Kathy did an amazing job by sending pictures and updating me! I was at ease during my entire trip and felt that I made the right choice by leaving my baby with her. She lives not that close to me but if I ever need a sitter again, I would choose Kathy. My dog came home and it took a whole 24 hours for him to not miss Kathy, Bradley absolutely loved her!

Sammy had a great time with Kathy. Lots of pictures to show how he was doing during his visit. Thank you
I am a repeat client of Kathy's. I can leave my two dogs with her knowing that they are going to be well taken care of. I love that well I am at work she send me updates with photos of them. I highly recommend her.
Kathy is an amazing pet host. I have two small chihuahuas, both which suffer from separation anxiety and one who is quite hyperactive. One would never know, they where so happy going to see Kathy. Kathy had no trouble with either of these issues and made my dogs feel at home.
On my first dogs first night at Kathy's, I was able to leave comfortable as Kathy gave me a tour of her back yard and home, where I watched my dogs play.
Kathy was very flexible to my schedule which I appreciated. Thank you, Kathy!

Easy drop off, easy pick up. Was nervous first time using dogvacay but Kathy was great. Nice back yard which my dog absolutely loved. Would recommend for sure. Thanks Kathy!
Kathy's Great! My dog keeps eyeballing me to take him back to play with his new friends in her huge backyard. She kept me updated with texts and photos, I was thrilled I found her, I never worried for a moment while I was away. My regular sitter was booked up for the week so I decided to try Dog Vacay.... So glad I chose Kathy! We now have a NEW sitter and can't wait to go back. I recommend Kathy to anyone who wants to have the confidence that their dog is having the time of their life until they return. Thanks Again!
