About Kathleen

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Caring for young pups and adult dogs, and some seniors ages 8+. Can arrange for birds - bring your own cages if you have a feathered friend, with vet references, or will visit birds in your own home. Sorry - no kitties! Love them, but I have birds! Car service, clean license, available to make any vet appointments or transport to home and back. Time and mileage is extra. Fenced in yard. If your dog is over-sized, the price could range to $60. My base price $45.00 for daycare and $50.00 for day and night stay overs. I was a volunteer at the local animal shelter in Elmsford, focusing on the senior-long-term, foster-to-adoptable dogs. I continue to visit another rescue in Bedford, NY. Your pup will become part of the family, but I do not allow large-breed dogs on the sofa, and do not expect that to be a problem. Toy-lap dogs are welcomed and are cared for 1-on-1. Although Dog Vacay will read booked after 3 - I normally do not book any more than 1 at a time. All dogs must have Bordetella vaccine, rabies and be treated with heartworm and flea protection as recommended by my own vet. Thank you, and I hope to be of service to you.

Kathleen was a great host again for Sebastian! We enjoyed receiving the photos showing how content he was, and how he was enjoying the time spent with his buddy and bunkmate, another visiting dog, especially since we were out of the country on our family vacation. He was excited to be visiting again as we pulled up to drop him off, and happy to be coming home again at pickup...easy transitions. We would definitely look to leave him in Kathleen's care again.
This was the first time ever that we were leaving Duke overnight. We were leaving Duke for 8 nights, and we were all very concerned. Kathy took good care of Duke. He struck up a good friendship with one of her own dogs. She sent us emails and pictures throughout the stay. Duke came back happy and healthy.
Our dog had a great stay with Kathleen! He came home happy and playful, not a bit of stress. Kathleen was so sweet and kind to him. She is also very knowledgeable about dogs!
My dog had a great time staying with Kathleen. It was a great experience for all. Will definitely use her again in the future.
Kathleen helped us out with taking Sebastian last-minute. She was very responsive and accommodating. Sebastian even had companionship during his time at Kathleen's with her resident dogs. He seemed to enjoy his stay.
Our dog stayed one night with Kathleen. All went well and we picked up our happy dog the next day. I will definitely leave my dog with her again.
Mila was for the fourth time with Kathleen and she always seems to have a good time.
Kathleen was great latte came home he was happy went right back to his normal routine. Kathleen seems to be very knowlegable about all of the pets that she sits. Would definitely recommend .Great service.
Great - as ever. Thanks a million Kat. Always comfortable and at ease knowing Elwood is in your care.
Stays with Kathleen are always "Pawsome". Elwood is very happy and extremely well-looked after by Kat, and she is very flexible and helpful in terms of pick-ups and drop-offs too. Thanks again Kat.
Stanley came home happy and relaxed... he had a great vacation. Thank you Kathleen!
Our Tibetans are always happy to visit Kathleen, and we have every confidence in her. Highly recommend
Kathleen is a wonderful carer for our Tibetans. They are very happy and well-cared for. Highly recommend.
Kathleen was able to accommodate a last minute change in our schedule when we were passing through NY. She had a full house but we appreciated her flexibility and we felt good that Quimby was being looked after for a few hours. Cheers Steve
Super Duper ! Kathleen is great with our little Oliver.
Kathleen took very good care of our little Oliver. We are very pleased with Kathleen, this is the third time we have asked Kathleen to sit Ollie. We would definitely ask Kathleen to sit our puppy in the future
Kathleen was amazing! Lola means a great deal to our family, and knowing that she was at home, safe and sound while we were on vacation gave us great comfort and peace of mind. I can’t thank Kathleen enough for the wonderful care she took of Lola while we were away. Thanks a million.
Kathleen took great care of my dog Lucy for a week! She is a caring dog lover. Spacious and immaculate grounds for the dogs to run around.
My wife and I are very pleased with the care that our little Oliver recieved while staying with Kathleen. Olover had a good time and was well taken care of. He even got a nice brushing before we picked him up.
We will definitely ask Kathleen to watch Oliver next time we can't take home on a trip with us.
Kathleen took care of our dog, Sadie, while we were on vacation for a few days. She came home happy, clean, and groomed. We would definitely use her again.
Kathleen took excellent care of our active puppy Fred. He is sleeping as I write this and appears quite content. She went above and beyond, even wiping his face after eating and combing carefully around the eyes. We were very pleased with everything. Kathleen has a wonderful caring manner.
It was Spencer's second stay with Kathleen. He was so thrilled when we drove up to her house, we felt a bit jealous :) Kathleen was very flexible about drop off and pick up time, which makes it very convenient and stress-free experience.
Our dog returned happy and groomed! Thank you, Kathleen.
Kathleen is great! She is very sweet and helpful and has always been lovely with our dogs.
Very nice property and host, with large yard to run around in. Kathleen seemed very interested in providing a good environment for our dog and he came back in good shape and seemed quite happy there
Kathleen is an experienced sitter with a great fenced yard.
Kathleen took great care of our two Tibetan Terriers, and went above and beyond the call of duty - giving us great feedback on how the dogs behaved, giving one of them a bath. We would definitely use her again, and were extremely happy with her help.
Kathy is always a life-saver for us and our boy Emmett! He always come home so happy, and he loves hanging out with her dogs. Thanks again Kathy for your hospitality!
Sasha always comes home happy! Thanks Kathy!
Kathy is great! My dog loves her!!
This is the second time Kathleen took care of us while Dad and Mom went away. She treats us like kings! Thank you for all your caring, love Henry and Buddy :)
Kathleen is truly incredible. She took excellent care of Pete. Anytime we left him in the past he was very anxious and clinging to us when we picked him up.
When we went to pick him up after Kathleen had him, he was calm and wandered calmly while we spoke to Kathleen. She also sent us emails and pictures of Pete, so kind of her. Pete has big ears and they are often messy. His ears were cleaner than when we brought him.
we will definitely be asking Kathleen to take Pete again.
Kathleen did a great job with my dog Sadie! When I picked her up and brought her home after her stay with Kathleen she was happy and content--like I never left her at all.
Kathleen was wonderful! Super sweet and it was great for my Emmylou to have a big back yard and other dogs to play with.
Kathleen is an extraordinary person. Our dogs were well taken care of while we were away, and she even sent us pictures of them. She kept an eye on our older guy who has some special needs. We would recommend Kathleen to anyone who needs to board their dogs. If Henry and Buddy could talk, I know they would say the same. Thank you Kathleen, you are a great host!
Kathleen was an awesome host for our dog. Her love of animals truly shows in her caring nature. Our dog came back happy and healthy. We would absolutely recommend this host to others.
My pup Emmett LOVED his stay with Kathy! He came home with cleaner teeth and even his hair-do was still intact (he'd been groomed right before)! She's such a lovely woman, I'll be sending Emmett there again for sure.
Kathleen was awesome. She took Comet for the week-end with short notice. I am very indebted to her for this. She has an amazing way with dogs and her set up is wonderful. I have told many people about her.
We had a great experience with Kathleen! We were looking for someone last minute to watch our dog for several nights and Kathleen responded promptly. Our dog returned home very happy! She has a huge, fenced-in backyard and she took him on daily walks. He also loved playing with her dogs and running around in the sprinkler. She answered all of our questions and took great pics of him playing. This was a great "vacation" for our dog and we would use her services again. We highly recommend Kathleen! You won't be sorry!
Kathy was great, she provided a loving home away from home for our dog - I would definitely use her again for dog sitting!
Kathleen is awesome and truly has a heart for animals. She took excellent care of my dog (a sometimes hyper-reactive yorkie) for a week while I was on vacation. He was so relaxed and happy when I picked him up that I know it was an enjoyable vacation for him too! Whenever I have left my dog at a kennel or even a doggie daycare, he has never been as calm when I pick him up. I highly recommend Kathleen!
We are so thankful that someone mentioned this website to us. In the past we used a few different kennels where our dog was hesitant to get out of the car and was resistant to even enter the facility again. Kathleen is lovely and we felt so comfortable leaving our dog with her and her two friendly dogs this past holiday weekend. Our dog was able to run around either inside Kathleen's home or outside her gorgeous and spacious backyard. If you want to feel confident that your dog is at a safe and nurturing home, we highly recommend Kathleen!
