About Kathleen

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We have room in our hearts and our home for your dog. We work out of our home office most of the time, so there is almost always someone home. We specialize in keeping calm and/or mature adult dogs who want a warm, peaceful, loving environment without being pestered by younger rowdy or rambunctious dogs. We also keep smaller dogs, who can be comfortable in our home knowing that they won't be intimidated by the larger ones. As dog owners, we know the stress of deciding where to leave your best friend when you have to leave town. We will provide a loving place for your dog to live while you are gone. And we'll spoil him or her just as much as we spoil our own.

The initial meet and greet is so important. You can't fool a dog. From the moment we walked in the door, our Havanese, Clancy, was relaxed and at ease. He quickly found the doggy door to the spacious dog friendly backyard and made himself right at home. If a wagging tail is a dog's smile, he was beaming! It was clear to us that he had chosen Kathleen. There was not a moment of concern the first time he was left in her care. We highly recommend her.
Kathleen, John & their dog Gunther were fantastic with our 4 month old puppies, Mac & Josie. This was Mac & Josie's first time away from home and they loved their day with them! We'll definitely book with Kathleen & John again soon.
Our first time sending our two (Toy Fox Terrier) dogs for an over night stay with Kathleen, John and Gunther. It went great!!! Our dog Toby seems to never get along with other dogs well and he immediately took to Gunther. Both of our dogs were so excited to be there and the photos that were sent to us, showed us that our dogs became part of the family right away. We are so very happy to have found a sitter that really loves dogs and treats them like their own and for this I would recommend Kathleen and John, hands down! Also, would like to mention our dogs came back so happy! Usually after a stay somewhere, they come back ignoring us for the day(maybe mad for leaving them), but when we brought them home, they were running and playing immediately.
Looking forward to our next time!
We were so thrilled with the professional and caring job Kathleen and her husband did when we left our Westie for a week with her. She even supplied us with pics and videos of our dog (Shanny) while we were gone,which comforted us greatly. Shanny did not exhibit any of the anxiety that he has in the past when we left him at a kennel. I would recommend Kathleen in a heartbeat to anyone considering leaving their pet. Thank you again Kathleen.
Kathleen was the best pet sitter I have ever used. She took my dog in for a few days as if he was her own. He was clean, loved and seemed very happy when I picked him up. She even sends update pictures every day about the fun he's having! I highly recommend!!
Kathleen & John are the BEST - bar none!!!
Aside from being the "nicest of nice" people they are professionals.
They truly do make your dog "their" pet for the time he/she is there. They make sure they know all the important stuff as well as the likes and dislike of your pet.
They sent daily photo/video updates so we could see how our little guy was fitting in.
We feel that Mogie made a new friend in Gunther and we did in Kathleen & John as well.
They are now our #1 go to team !
This was by far the best experience for myself my daughter and my dogs. Kathleen and her husband really took great care of my animals and kept me up-to-date daily with photos and text

I will definitely be using them again and highly recommend them.
I knew I had found the perfect pet sitters after the meet-and-greet suggested by Kathleen. At that initial meeting, we introduced the dogs, tried the doggy door, exchanged details. As promised, Kathleen sent pix or videos nearly everday depicting Ranger fully embedded in their family life. Dog walks, dog park, playing fetch, laps around the pool deck, snuggling. Needless to say, he was a happy dog when I picked him up. Both Ranger and I look forward to visiting with them again.
We had a great experience with Kathleen caring for our two dachshunds. They obviously were well cared for and enjoyed their stay. The dogs were given a lot of love and regular walks. Kathleen sent us regular photos. Her home is very welcoming and clean. We plan to use her services again in the future.
We knew that it will be difficult to find anyone who could care for our pets just like we do. However, when we met John and Kathleen and visited them in their home, we immediately knew that their home was a place for our pets. The home was immaculate and fitted for pet care. John and Kathleen are seasoned caregivers but what was forefront for us immediately was their passion for pets. Their work is "WORK OF LOVE."
The dogs were so comfortable and their routine kept thus it was not difficult for us to resume their day to day routine upon their return home.
We will call upon their services again when the need arises.
I really don't want to tell you how great this couple is because I don't ever want them to be too busy to watch my dog. Kathleen and her husband were amazing! They treated Sophie as if she were their very own. They sent me photos and videos showing me how comfortable Sophie was while I was away. The personal notes and pictures helped me relax while on vacation. Their home was clean and inviting. I will definitely hire this couple again!! Thanks to Kathleen and John for taking such great care of Sophie!
WOW!!! What an amazing experience. Kathleen took such great care of our little Bella. Not only did she send daily updates, but pictures and videos as well. They have a beautiful home, a big backyard and our dog was taken on daily walks. We honestly could not have asked for a better experience. Highly recommend. 10 STARS!!!
After relocating to Arizona with our 2 doxies, we found ourselves in a panic, as we realized we no longer had the friends and family we always relied on to care for our pups when we were traveling. Not wanting to put them in a big boarding kennel, we were beyond relieved and so excited to have found Kathleen through the DogVacay website! We needed someone last minute, and Kathleen and her husband were both so accommodating, ensuring we were able to leave them for the weekend worry free. She checked in periodically, sending reassuring updates and photos, I just can't say enough how happy we are with her services, will definitely be repeat guests in the future!!!
John and Kathleen were great hosts. Our dog does not do well when she is away from us, but John and Kathleen made us feel very comfortable and let us know how she was doing while we were away. From the texts and pictures we received from them we could tell that Melosa was in very good hands. I would highly recommend and use them again.
This was the first time we used Dogvayca. It was very easy to use. Kathleen was a great sitter. Our puppy Dexter was well taken care of. She sent us pics of him. When we picked him up, she showed us a cute video of him using their double dog door. We had used Petsmart prior, and Dexter was a nervous wreck when we picked him up. Dexter was a happy puppy when we picked him up. We will be using Kathleen again. She and her husband were great.
