About Catherine

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Puppy Love Paradise caters to small/medium dogs and provides the care and love in a home atmosphere where it's okay to lay on the couch and sleep on the bed. We offer lots of love, cuddles, playmates, toys and playtime, and daily walks. Why should our pets be subjected to cold caged floors with little people interaction when they can have the comforts of home with cozy dog beds and comfy blankets to snuggle up in, or a lap that comes with lots of tummy rubs.

Our puppy dogs are always supervised when outside, even within the fenced area.

We can also supply daily photos of your pet's activities to you via email so you can be assured that your pet is enjoying its time away from home.

We also offer pick-up and delivery back home for our extended stay puppy dogs for your convenience.

We were happy that our Host Catherine set up a meet & greet prior to our dog's stay so we knew that our dog would get along with her dogs. Also, it was very nice of her to send updates with pictures so we knew he was doing well!
Catherine was great! Mugsy and I were able to meet with her ahead of time to make sure everything would be ok. We got daily photos to let us know how Mugsy was doing. Mugsy seemed very happy and we will be using Catherine again in the future!!
Catherine was great! She sent daily pictures and updates so we knew our pups were doing well. They felt right at home and I think will be excited to go back. Thanks Catherine!
Catherine was awesome with our pups! I am always hesitant to leave them with just anyone but after meeting Catherine it is clear that she is a dog lover. She sent daily pictures which made me feel so much better about leaving them. I would highly recommend leaving your dog(s) with her!

Katherine is great and you can tell she is a true animal lover. The dogs are treated like family. Perfect if you have smaller dogs or older dogs that don't require a large outdoor area to run or long walks. They will feel right at home and you can rest assured they are in good hands.

Our dog loved her stay and was well taken care of! She had many doggie friends to play with too, during her stay. Catherine sent us pics of her throughout and we were kept up to date. We definitely recommend her.
Catherine is amazing with our 2 dogs! They both love coming over to play with her and the other dogs. Catherine always texts pictures everyday to say how they are doing! She has watched our dogs for about a year and we absolutely love her and will keep going to Catherine!

Catherine was great :) She kept Amber for 10 days! Sent pictures and stayed in touch. Our dog was very happy and came home clean and obviously well cared for. No problems at all.
Big Boy & Simon had a great time with Catherine. They warmed up to her very nicely and always were cared for and loved while we were away for the entire week. Thanks Catherine!
Catherine was great! Lola was so happy and welcomed. I received numerous pictures and knew Lola was in a safe and well taken care of home. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Definitely recommend Catherine!
Everything was great my dogs came home happy.
Stanley loved his vacation. Catherine sent us plenty of pictures and took good care of him.
I am sorry to say my puppy just didn't get along with hers.
Bella loves staying with Catherine. She has lots of friends to play with and she treats her like we do at home.
Romeo was relaxed when we picked him up and we feel like he was well taken care of my the host.
Catherine took very good care of our little Penny. We will use her again in future. We would recommend as a sitter for anyone's pet. Thank you so much Catherine!
As usual, Catherine took great care of Lacie. She always provide pictures and updates which are greatly appreciated. Lacie is always well adjusted on her return home. Thanks Catherine for giving me peace of mind when I board Lacie with you.

Catherine is a caring and warm person who loves and treats her guest dogs as she would her own dogs. She was very prompt in responding to our inquiries and flexible. She allowed us to bring our dog, Lola, for a meet & greet with her at her home prior to our reservation date to see if Lola would feel comfortable and get used to her place. While we were away, Catherine sent us updates on Lola with some photos which was comforting for us to see Lola was doing well and enjoying her stay. Lola enjoyed her time with Catherine so much she did not want to leave when we picked her up. She actually was sad when she returned home because she missed her new friends, Pookie and Sammy (Catherine's dogs) and Catherine. If you leave your dog with Catherine, he/she will be well-cared for and loved. Lola had a great time and we will leave Lola with Catherine again, when we need someone to look after her. We would highly recommend Catherine. Thank you, Catherine!

Catherine was great! I received one or two pictures each day!! Bullet adjusted very well with Catherine. I will definitely leave Bullet with her again!!
Catherine is a kind person. She was thoughtful and kind to my dogs. Benji and Pebbles fit right in. They were not scared. I recommend Catherine to anyone.
This was our first time with Catherine and she was wonderful with Charlie. Tons of updates, pictures, and wonderful communication. It was a peaceful feeling knowing our boy was in such loving and caring hands. We are looking forward to using Catherine again for our future trips and letting all of our friends and neighbors know how great she is :)

Our husky, Juno, loved his stay at Catherine's! She was a very accommodating host, has a great space for pups to play, and sent updates frequently. My husband and I both felt very comfortable leaving him for an entire weekend and it was nice to know he had some friends to play with the whole time!

Our pups loved their stay at Catherine's. She was so good with them and also would send me texts/photos everyday to let me know how they were doing! Will definitely keep bringing our pups to her!
I am very happy that I met Catherine, I could tell as soon as went to her house that there was a very dog friendly atsmospher; My senior Shih Tzu friend spent two days over there and Catherine kept me posted by sending me pictures of how my dog was doing. I definitely recommend her.

Catherine is very kind and caring. That's how she treated my little sweet 15-year old guy. I highly recommend her.
My dog had a great day at Catherine's! She had playmates to enjoy, and came home happy and tired. I liked that she had tile floors and fans running to keep everyone cool on such a hot day!
Cocoa had a blast with Catherine and cell phone pics of her playing with new friends daily helped me worry less and enjoy our trip more. Great experience.
Our terrier mix, Jake, was with Catherine, her son, their 2 dogs and a couple of other boarders for 7 days and did GREAT! Catherine was so sweet about sending photos and staying in touch to let us know that Jake had taken a shine to her son and they had become buddies!

Jake seemed quite happy and content when we picked him up and it was obvious that he had been well taken care of and in a safe environment during our vacation. We cannot thank Catherine and her son enough for providing us with such an awesome experience and, most important, peace of mind.

I highly recommend Catherine and will definitely request her services again. Thanks for everything, Catherine. You and your son were TERRIFIC!!

The dogs had a wonderful time. Catherine did a great job. Thanks.
Catherine was a great host to my fur baby. She sent pictures and kept me updated while I was away, and that really kept me at ease. I knew by fur baby was in great hands.
Very pleased with Catherine's performance. We got daily updates about how Lilly was getting along on her vacay. The dogs there seemed spoiled and got lots of attention. Lilly seemed sad to be leaving Catherine's home and her son's lap! I'm sure when our vacays come up again, Lilly will request Catherine! Thanks so much.

fall and would like Catherine to keep him.

Catherine is wonderful. Schnitzel had a very good time & Catherine kept us reassured & content knowing Schnitzel was in very good hands. Schnitzel even slept in Catherine's bed. (Sorry Schnitz is not at all spoiled!)
Many thanks Catherine!

Our dog, Strauss, loved staying with Catherine! We were gone for over a week and she sent us pictures, texts, and emails with updates on how Strauss was doing. She made the stress of not having our dog with us a little easier. We still missed him, but knew he was in good hands! Thank you Catherine!

I know my Zeus demands a lot of attention being only 8 months old and Cathy was so patient with him! Thank you Cathy
Catherine was a great sitter for Mable.. all the dogs were similar size and were friendly. Overall great experience.
Catherine is great! She's flexible and gives me updates about Pepper while I am gone (including pictures).
Catherine took good care of Peaches.
This was my first time using dogvacay. Catherine was available for a last minute dog sitting request for a week stay. Her house and yard are a really great set up for dogs. It was nice that the dogs were allowed on the couch and that there was a nice sun room for them and a subsection of the yard available for smaller dogs. I would like to see if additional services like dog walks would be available and the pricing for it. Catherine sent me picture texts for some of the nights. It would have been great to receive daily email or text updates because I was so busy and didn't have time to call and check in. Catherine called to clarify any questions she had, which I appreciated. She is also reasonably priced. I would use her again.

WE DEFINITELY RECOMMEND CATHERINE, SHE IS AWESOME =)
She is awesome!
I should first say that I'm a nut when it comes to my dog, (lol) so I am very picky where I leave Ricky. Catherine is very mellow and relaxed and I know Ricky felt it. Ricky has severe separation anxiety from me (and me from him too) I was sent texts and photos and that made me feel good. Catherine told me that Ricky had a girl friend (Ruby) I loved hearing that! When I picked Ricky up, Catherine told me he wasnt eating very much and she mixed his dry food with her own wet food and he ate it! I was so happy! Anyway, enough rambling....I highly recommend Catherine big time!! I will def. be bringing Ricky back!!

Catherine responded quickly and was a great sitter.. very flexible on dropoff and pick and gave us great updates during the stay. We will definitely be back!
Catherine was wonderful with our nervous little dog! We felt very comfortable leaving her with Catherine and will be booking with her again for any future trips. Thanks Catherine!
Catherine was a life saver while I was on a recent trip. She allowed me to bring my little one over with a very last minute reservation and it was great. She sent pictures each day and made the process very easy for me and my little one. If I am traveling in the area again I will definitely go back.

Catherine was a great host for our two dogs over the holiday weekend. She sent daily updates and showed great affection for our two dogs. We highly recommend and will definitely have our dogs visit again.
BJ really enjoyed his stay with Catherine! Her home, yard, and love for dogs was just perfect for him. We'll definitely use her again.
We were on a cruise to Panama Canal and were comfortable leaving our two shih tzu's with Catherine. Our pets were very comfortable and happy when we returned and would use Catherine again. We are hoping to us dogVacay again when visiting the west coat of Florida for day trips.

I was very thankful for the care my dogs received while staying with Catherine. They were there for almost 2 weeks and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Our one dog has a history of seizures and other health issues requiring a special diet and our other dogs have a couple of issues as well that can make them hard to take care of. Catherine was amazing about being willing to do whatever the dogs needed and with a loving, caring attitude. We would definitely be happy to have her take care of our dogs anytime.

Catherine did a great job taking care of my Mimi. Mimi seemed very comfortable and even made a new puppy pal! Catherine kept me updated via text on how Mimi was doing during her visit. I would highly recommend her!
Catherine is wonderful! She was caring, affectionate, and spent quality time playing with Brutus. She updated me on his stay and made our family feel the comfort and peace of knowing that he was in good hands! We couldn't be more grateful for Catherine's services and will definitely call on her in the future! Thank you so much again, Catherine!

Catherine was an amazing host for our dog, Murphy. She was very attentive and made sure to let us know how he was doing while we were away. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Catherine as the perfect host for anyone needing high-quality care for their pup.
