About Katie

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
**24/7 supervision**

I have a flourishing baby boy Westie, ok well he's 8 now, but he's the bees knees. He gets lonely with us human kinds and I know would love to have any kind of canine company.
We are not sticklers about dogs on the couch, bed, etc. Chief loves to walk on the top of our couches like its his own cat walk!

Hello all, my name is Katie and my husband Matthew. We just bought our first home in our favorite neighborhood and re-sod our whole backyard just for our dogs to have great grass.....crazy right?! Whether you have a big ol' puppy or some little kiddos we have more then enough room.
Fenced (sturdy and high) backyard as well as an extra bed, knick knacks, and food bowls. we also have on hand Doggy gates, treats, toys and supplies that help with many dogs at any given time. We can discuss any of your concerns, I had training at a vet tech school to help with several different situations with all types of animals. I regularly groom my westie and am familiar with a few other "doggie cuts" if you like to have him or her come home all stylish.

Katie was wonderful and very accommodating with last minute changes. My boys had a great time with her.
We were very pleased with how our dog Bayon was taken care of last week. He was very tired when he came home which means he got lots of exercise and play time. We also enjoyed seeing the photos that Katie posted on Dog Vacay while we were on our vacation. It was a big plus for us that Katie works from home, so our dog Bayon had someone there all day long!

Thanks Katie
Great stay for my dog
Katie and her family were amazing with my two boys! They enjoyed their time with them especially my very antisocial yorkie who think he found him a girlfriend. Katie was very flexible with drop off and pick up time and sent pictures while they were with her. I would easily use her again.
Katie was awesome. I left my boys with her for over 3 weeks and was very flexible when I extended my trip overseas. She sent pictures and even offered to skype them for me. :)
Katie was great. I was a little concerned my dog and one of her little westie's wouldn't get along, but when I went to pick up Stella, she and her new buddy, Katie's westie's both jumped in my car! I really like Katie, she sent me a picture of Stella each morning to let me know how she was doing!
I would use her again! Thank you Katie!
Katie was awesome she was extremely accommodating, she went out of her way for me and my dog. She sent text updates with pictures to let me know how my dog was doing while I was on my trip. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who's looking for a great boarding experience.
My pup had a great time at Katie's. She was very accommodating with my last minute request...Thank you Katie!!!
I am grateful for Katie taking such good care of Maggie and especially Lulu who has special needs. I know they got a lot of love and attention from their little daughter! They came home with a special little doggie bag! Would defiantly use again if in town!
Katie and her family were fantastic! They were very accommodating. When I came to pick up Avalon he had clearly made himself right at home.
Although I did not meet the host Katie, they were friendly and flexible with times, available last minute for the holiday weekend which was very convenient.
Katie was great with our dogs they came home happy. She even sent them home with doggy bags full of treats and a toy
This was my first time using DogVacay, and I am so glad I used Katie. She was so flexible, sent photo updates of my two dogs, and sent us home with a goodie bag. She was very sweet. I will definitely use her again!
Was a good host. Dogs seemed to do fine. Her husband seemed less than thrilled to have us come by or have the dogs there but otherwise no complaints!
Katie was excellent and very patient with me. I made my decision at the last minute and she was very accommodating with my drop off time and my pick up times. I would definitely use her services again. My dogs came home very happy and she even gave them a treat bag. Very sweet.
Katie was great! She stepped up to keep our dogs at the last minute when another person backed out. The dogs loved her, and had a great time. She kept us updated on how they were doing while we attended our daughter's graduation and a family get together. We never worried about them at all. I can't say thank you enough being able to enjoy ourselves without worrying about our girls. If we ever get back to Jacksonville, we will be calling Katie!
Our dogs came home very happy ! Katie did a great job caring for our 2 dogs, when we took an overnight trip. She's very friendly as is her own dog .One of our dogs loves to escape. She kept a close eye on him, which is sometimes hard to do because he's fast. I'd highly recommend her . Thank You Katie for the peace of mind !
Great experience - Katie was flexible and accommodating to our last minute changes. Nice place with good sized fenced in yard.
I was grateful for the fact that they were home 24/7 and my pup was not left in the cage for extended work hours. I leave him in the kennel at nights but he is used to me being home during the days.
They were good at photo updates and quick with any responses.

Me and Raleigh even got a little homemade fun doggie bag to-go! Matt and Katie will be used again for sure.
