About Kathy

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We have been operating our first class Pet Sitting Services since May 2013. We will either keep your dog at our home or at your home. We have found that multiple pets usually do better staying in their own house. Many Pet Sitters will only make 'visits' during your vacation, but I will move in and live with your animals and treat them like my own....this alleviates a lot of the stress that pets feel in their owner's absence....I love animals and have always had them at one point in my life or another...from horses to love birds...and always dogs and cats....I currently have a cat that loves everything (her best friend used to be a neighbor's rabbit). I have enlisted the help of my 15 year old son, who loves dogs too...and the dogs, especially the big ones, claim him as 'their own boy'! Together, as a team, we will pamper your pooch!!

My husband and I felt very comfortable with Kathy the moment we met her. Most importantly she wanted to know everything about our Colby. Kathy texted us daily with pictures, which is very comforting since Colby has never stayed away from family before. She treated him just like he was her own!
Kathy did a wonderful job caring for our dog for 5 days and he came home to us happy, healthy and clean as a pin. We were very pleased with the home they provided while we were away and Kathy and son, Chris were very responsive to our needs. We even received lovely pictures and brief notes from Kathy about the happy life our dog experienced there. Thanks so much for the excellent and caring service.

Kathy and her son Chris took very good care of my buddy Oscar. Kathy sent photo updates while he was there. I picked up a happy hound! Highly recommend her!
Kathy was great! We couldn't be more pleased. She was very understanding and attentive to Lucy's "issues" with thunder, chasing rabbits, and other dogs. I think she genuinely loves dogs, which is very important. She sent us periodic text updates in which Lucy appeared to be having a great time. She looked like she was smiling! This was very reassuring. She even made a photo montage of Lucy's "summer vacation" for us. What a nice touch! The picture of Lucy splayed out on the couch told me all I needed to know - that's Lucy in dog heaven! I would definitely recommend her, and we will use her services again.
Our experience with Kathy was nothing short of fantastic! Kathy is that neighbor that every pet owner wishes they had when they have to leave their pet behind for one reason or another. It was obvious from the time we dropped off our 8 year old golden retriever that our dog was welcomed into a loving home. Just as obvious was when we picked up our golden after 5 days that she was well cared for during her stay. Thank you Kathy for your wonderful service!
My dog Wolf had a great experience with Kathy and her son, Chris. Wolf recently lost both his older dog companion and family cat and is clearly lonely. In addition, Wolf is a very shy dog to start with and it takes alot of patience as he gets to know new people and becomes comfortable around them. Kathy and Chris did an outstanding job of keeping him busy and taking him on many walks, his favorite de-stresser! I received daily pictures and multiple updates that relieved my anxiety about leaving him away from home for the first time. He could not have had a better experience and next time I travel, I hope that Kathy has an opening in her schedule!
Our two dogs had so much fun with Kathy and her son that they almost didn't want to come home with us. Kathy sent us daily updates and photos of our dogs and their activities. Her son
Chris spent a lot of time playing with them and exercising them. They allowed the dogs to sleep on the bed because we do.(we told them that it wasn't necessary if that was not their custom, but they wanted the dogs to feel at home). Both Kathy and Chris are caring people, and we will try to have our dogs stay with them whenever possible.
Kathy is a wonderful, caring loving lady. My Standard poodle boys came home with happy tails after staying at her house. She stayed in touch and sent pictures of them giving me piece of mind. Thanks Kathy!
We were very pleased with the care that Kathy gave to our baby. We would definitely ask her to watch our dog again.
Thanks to Kathy Bella & Zoey had a great day after spending three days in a car driving from New England. Zoey was so comfortable she wanted to go on Kathy's bed and she let her! I would definitely recommend her.
My pet Aspen has some issues with separation anxiety, but Kathy and her son Chris eased her fears quickly. They exceeded my expectations as pet sitters and kept me informed about Aspen's adjustment and activities throughout the 10 days we were gone. They went the extra mile in providing fun activities for Aspen and exercised her consistently. I will certainly utilize their service again!
Kathy & her son Chris are trememendous they took care of our Australian Shepherd Boru just like a family member they definitely will be are future dog vacay home from home. Kathy is exceeptional and informed us by text including photographs of Boru's progress at her home. We will be back with Boru again fabulous 5 stars is not enough for the apppreciation and job Kathy and Chris did. Merry Christmas Kathy & Chris we will be back. Thank you both again.
Kathy and her son, Chris, must have made my dog's visit a very good one! Although I wasn't there to pick her up she came home a very happy and rested puppy. Next time I'll know to include her water ball in the bag so they can play catch with her in the pool. Thanks, Kathy and Chris!
