About Cathy

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm a life-long dog lover and owner. I live in the Ravenswood area and work from home. I'm currently on my fourth German Shephard. My 2-year-old German Shephard Makena is very friendly and loves to play.

I'm here over the holidays and would love to have company during the day or overnight. I can provide walks a few times a day, doggie companionship, and human companionship. I do my best to let you know that your dog is well cared for and happy in your absence via text updates and pictures.

The community that I live in is very dog-friendly. Our complex has a fenced in dog run and even an indoor heated dog wash. On a typical day, I start my day at Winnemac park with my dog Makena.

Your dog is welcome on the furniture, dog beds, etc or you can bring your own dog bed. I can give medicine and take care of special needs dogs. I have experience with older dogs with medical issues as well.

Cathy is a life-long friend and ardent supporter of animals. I have never known her to be without a pet.....and she has taken exemplary care of those animals. Her commitment to those pets has been extraordinary and it has been quite obvious as I have known all of the animals under her care and they have all been loving and well-cared for animals.

Cathy is extremely conscientious ad puts the needs of her pets as a number one priority in her life. She has missed a number of vacations with friends because she didn't want to leave her dog behind. That's commitment and caring.

I know that she will love and care for any animal in her charge. She is a person of great character, intelligence and integrity. Whichever animals are under her care are definitely lucky.

Please do not hesitate to contact me for questions. Thank you

Cathy would make a fantastic dog sitter for any lucky dog owner. How do I know? I trust her with my own dog! Anyone who knows me knows that's a tall task because I am extremely particular about who cares for my pets. My dog stays with Cathy at her home and I send a list of detailed instructions for feeding and medications. There have also been times where Cathy has stayed at my home as well. She is completely trustworthy. I miss my dog while I am away so she sends me updates via text and sometimes very cute photos and video. It really gives me peace of mind. Lastly, my dog is 91lbs and Cathy has no problem handling her. Cathy would be a great pet sitter for dogs of various sizes and temperaments.

I've known Cathy through four of her dogs and one cat. She treats her pets as the best parent treats her child. She prepares the best food her pets, shows them her utmost attention with activity and showers them with sheer love. In short she provides the best quality of life for her pets and the pets of her friends and family. I would love it if Cathy was the one who was taking caring of my pups when I was not there.

Cathy did a great job with Lily and Shadow - they loved staying with her and Makena!
Cathy was great. This was my first time leaving him with anyone but a friend or family. She kept me in the know by sending pictures and updating me on how my boy was. She also brought back his bowl that was forgotten on accident. She lives pretty close to me so it was convenient. Thanks so much!

Cathy and Makena were great with Julius. He really enjoyed his visit. He got lots of love, attention, and exercise and was a very happy pup when I got home. We will definitely keep Cathy in mind for future trips.
