About Katharine

33 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are definitely dog people. Our house is always alive with canine guests and we wouldn't want it any other way. Many parents tell us that their pups are a little sad when they get home because they've had their own vacation at our house.
We've been hosting dogs in our home for over five years, and have had all different breeds, sizes, personalities, and ages (as you can see from our pictures). I am a former English teacher and my husband retired from the military to finish his history and political science degrees at UAH. The Dog People is now my full time career, which means I am home playing with pooches all day!
Our back yard has a six foot privacy fence, is medium-sized, and very clean. We are regularly outside with our sweet Golden Retriever and boarders playing music, grilling out, or throwing the ball.
Feel free to ask me any questions you might have! I know how stressful it is to leave your dog(s) behind when you travel. At our house, they'll feel loved, secure, and will ALWAYS have a vacation of their own.

*Our hours: 6:30am - 7:00pm

*We charge $29 a night/per dog and $40 a night/per dog under 6 months old.

*We require proof of all vaccinations.

Pick Up Policy
Boarding reservations are for a 24 hour period. If you plan on your pooch being here later, please include our $20 daycare fee on the pick up day.
For example, if you drop off at 6:30am on Monday, pick up will be at 6:30am on Tuesday, unless you pay a daycare fee.

*Your dog must be spayed/neutered, housebroken, up to date on all vaccinations, and get along well with other dogs.

*We offer doggy daycare (in addition to overnight boarding) for $24 a day ($30 for dogs under 6 months). We'd be happy to keep your pup entertained while you’re away for the day.

*Please arrive ON TIME. When a client is late, we then have to reschedule the rest of the daily appointments in order to not have them overlap in our living room.

Katharine is so amazing! Our 12 week old Labradoodle and our 13 year old mixed breed are our babies! We were referred to Katharine by a friend and we were so impressed!! She is such a sweet heart. Throughout the night I was receiving texts and videos with updates on our dogs. We felt like the dogs were in a safe and loving place and highly recommend her! You can tell she loves dogs!
It was such a pleasure to leave our dog with Katharine. We received texts and pictures throughout the day, which really made me feel better about leaving our pet somewhere. I am happy knowing we found someone who loves our girl as much as we do!
We couldn't be more happy with our experience with Katharine! We knew that our Dylan was in good hands for the entire week we were on vacation. Katharine is VERY professional and you can tell she truly loves dogs and what she does. Every day we were gone, she would send us pictures of Dylan and texting us updates assuring us that he was in good hands and happy while we were away. I would HIGHLY recommend Katharine to anyone, and will not hesitate to call her first when we have to travel again!
As always Katharine was an outstanding host!
i love this place! so glad i found someone to watch my pups that i can trust!
As always, our "boys" LOVE being with Aunt Katie and the other pups!!!
Katherine is the best! Always a good feeling leaving Wally with her.
I love the fact that Katharine allows the dogs to run free and play without being put in a crate! She truly seems to love animals! My Rumble always seems to have a great time!! I would recommend her!
I posted a review of Katharine earlier and I have to reiterate how wonderful, professional and caring this lady is and how pleased I am with her care of my very best friend Ruby. Katharine will now be my to go person to care for my Ruby.
Seriously she is the best and my dogs adore spending time with her.
I travel frequently for work and Katie is my go to dog boarding host. I know they have such a better experience with her than trapped in a kennel at the vet. I get lots of pics of them sleeping on the couch or wherever they please.
She is fantastic, I'm very protective of my pups and I can rest easy knowing she is looking after them.
Katie is amazing with my boys, they always come home exhausted from playing all day. I love the photo and video updates.
Katherine is the best decision I have made about the care of my best friend Ruby while I went out of town. This wonderful dog lover made sure I had pictures and video of Ruby every single day and by far it made my vacation so much more enjoyable. I know that any time I need to find a care giver for Ruby Katherine will be my choice. Thanks to this service and specially Katherine for giving me peace of mind and taking care of my Ruby
Katharine was great! My dog had a great time! Very easy transition for her. I got daily updates and pictures. I would definitely recommend her services and will be using her again!
Ranger loves going to Katharine's. It gives us peace of mind that he is being cared for while we are at work. I love that she sends me pictures to let me now how he is doing during the day.
I had a great experience boarding Maggie and Donald with Katharine and Jeremy. They checked in with me every day to let me know how my dogs were doing and sent lots of great pics. I highly recommend them.
I was really glad to know Katharine for my long period of trip without any worrying. She sent multiple pictures and notes everyday, so I was able to check and see how was my puppy doing. I absolutely will return to her whenever I need her for my little pup.
Our greyhounds, Jordy and Ivy had a wonderful stay with Katharine. She was responsive to all of our questions and needs. We love receiving photo and text updates about our pups. We would definitely use Katharine again :)
Always a great stay with Katherine!
Katharine was awesome and Gracie had a wonderful time!
Wonderful place with great and trustworthy people. Very organized and obviously take wonderful care of their four legged guests. Cooper had a wonderful time and can't wait for his next visit.
Was very pleased with our experience with Katharine. She was very reassuring and we went on with our plans for the day, knowing that our babies, Riley and Sadie, were in good hands. If we're ever in the Huntsville area again, we will definitely look her up again.
Katharine is fantastic! Hunter is always loved on while with Katharine. We love it when we arrive for drop off that she welcomes Hunter before acknowledging us. After all, he is the one that will be staying there. I have never left a review only because of time, but make no mistake it's not because we weren't happy. As long as we are in the area and she is available, Katharine will be the one that Hunter does his vacation with.
Wonderful place to take all three of our dogs. One of our dogs can be very shy and afraid of people which makes it difficult when other people try to get her inside. She seemed to have no trouble at Katharine's and if she can handle our frightened dog, I'm sure she could handle any dog.

I would recommend Katharine and would use her again for dog boarding.
Jefe had another wonderful vacation with Katharine and her husband! Thanks for always taking such good care of my baby while we're away ??
I wish there was more than 5 stars! Katharine is AWESOME!! I dropped my dog off and she treated her like she was her own. She sent me pictures of her playing with the other dogs! I would recommend Katharine to anybody! If I am back in the Huntsville area, my dog will be back at Katharine's! Thank you! Roll Tide!
Katherine was wonderful, will use her again for sure
Katherine and her husband are AMAZING!!! She is so fun and our two babies just love going there. Even after almost a year, due to my health, we made reservations with Katherine and all we had to do was ask the babies if they wanted to see Ms. Katherine and they were just as excited as the first time we took them. They remembered the love they received from her....
We were so thrilled with Katherine! She was AWESOME with Bailey and sent us pictures throughout our vacation that showed how much fun our dog was having. When we showed up to pick him up he even turned around after greeting us to go back in her house. He didn't want to come home! Will definitely be using them again!
Katharine was a great host she took good care of my puppy Pepper. She was able to give her meds and sent pictures of her throughout. I could tell Katharine genuinely loves dogs and as a result, she is an exceptional care taker. I will definitely be leaving my puppy with her again.
We couldn't be happier!! Duncan was well taken care of and well loved! We will definitely be back!
We are so grateful to have had Katharine when we needed Otis to have a day 'off'! He is always tired and happy at the end of the day.
Katharine is always so accommodating. Otis had a great visit as he always does.
We never had a bad experience. They were wonderful, Otis was always taken care of.
Katherine was a great host! My dog got to play with others all weekend and was worn out by the time I picked him up. This is a very caring home.
Katharine was marvelous and I'm pretty sure my pup didn't want to leave her house. I'm pretty sure there was a petition she was working up that we move in with them! ;) We got photos and communication that made us feel like we knew our dog was ok while we were gone. Her place was a dog's dream home with furniture to climb on. And, they let her sleep in their bed with them! Thanks Katharine!
As always Katharine took such a good care of our dog, hello has plenty of other playmates and he had lots of fun as usual. Katharine is great with dogs and she is very sweet to them
As always, Leo had a great time and wants to go back....
Katherine was awesome!!! I am so happy that I have somewhere to take my babies where I feel confident enough that I can actually have a good time when I'm out of town
Leo stayed with Ms Katherine 3 nights and always has such a good time. He loves playing with his doggie friends and is bored when he gets home with just me. I'm so thankful for her and Jeremy.
We were so happy with Katharine. She has such love for the pets left in her care. She gave me daily updates on our dog, Wally. I would highly recommend her and we will definitely be using her again and again!
Katharine was suggested to us via a local FDA veterinarian. We trusted this vet knew his stuff. He did. Our 1 yr old retriever arrived and was greeted with open arms and paws. He fit right in to this very dog-friendly home. Katharine kept us apprized of his activities and comforted during this 1st visit by sending us photos. We felt great about the drop off and our 4-legged toddler was actually sad to leave at the end of the weekend. He apparently was constantly stimulated by his new friends and thoroughly enjoyed himself. Her drop off and pick up times are so convenient and will fit busy schedules. Our little guy will definitely be visiting with Catharine and her 4-legged guests again!
Katharine was great with our dogs and worked with us on a bit of an awkward schedule for dropping the dogs off. She sent pictures and updates letting us know everything was going well while we were gone.

Great sitter and highly recommended to anyone wanting to be sure their dogs will be well taken care of while they are gone!
Loving second "parents" are the best words to describe Katharine & Jeremy. My poor Shiba Inu had had such bad experiences at his former boarder that I was ready to pull my hair out. When vacation time came up...I was thinking that we would cancel rather than trust Tora with the Vets again. I found the site and searched the bio of Katharine and got a good feeling. After our meet & greet I knew I had made the right decision. Katharine is such a sweet dog person. My Tora took to her right away and seemed to blend into her home like it was ours. She sent me pictures of Tora every day and I could tell that he loved it there. I only wish that I had found them sooner. I am so thankful for the loving care that they provided that I plan to use them again in Nov. Katharine S. should be made a Saint for her care of dogs.
Our dog, Rosie, thoroughly enjoyed her stay, had a blast playing with multiple dogs, and looked a bit disappointed while driving away! Thanks Katharine, for caring so well for our baby!
Katharine is simply the best! She really engages with the dogs & loves them for who they are. We received multiple photos a day, plus a little cute note about what was happening. Our dog, Tucker, had the most wonderful time. He was so happy-tired when we picked him up, and he's slept for the past 2 days (which is great when trying to unpack & do laundry & catch up with life). Katharine was very organized & easy to work with, and she also responded very quickly to texts & messages. We can't wait for our next vacation, especially knowing that Tucker will love every minute of it.
Leo loves it so much there, he jumped out of the car and went to the door without waiting for me. Katharine opened the door and there he was. I get pictures of him playing and with her. He looks so happy. Thanks
Leo always likes to stay with Ms. Katharine. He meets many new friends there and has fun playing. She gives him special attention (which he loves). I'm so glad I found her so I can enjoy my trips knowing he is happy.
I was very nervous leaving my baby boy Ryder for the first time while we were away on vacation as we have never boarded our dogs before. I looked at all the hosts in my area and found Katharine. Her profile looked amazing and I was impressed at all the positive reviews she has on her page. We went for a meet n greet before we left and she met us at the door on her knees to welcome Ryder into her home. I knew I had found the right person to take care of him right off the bat! Again when we dropped him off she met him at the door on her knees and welcomed him in. She was very responsive to my messages checking in on him and sending pictures while we were away. I will definitely be using her again when we go on our next vacation in October! Thank you Katharine for taking care of our baby boy and treating him like he was one of your own!
Katharine took excellent care of Eloise. I had to travel to Huntsville for my niece's wedding and a 9 month old lab puppy running around my sister's house with all the wedding things around would have been a total disaster. I am so thankful to have found Katharine through DogVacay.

When I met Katharine and saw how well she was organized and how much she loved dogs, I knew Eloise was in good hands and I didn't need to worry about her or the wedding decorations! I am happy to report that Eloise had just as much fun on her DogVacay as I had at the wedding.

I highly recommend Katharine and wish her the best!
Gus was very happy during his stay, he had plenty of playtime with other dogs. Katharine is a pleasure to work with, we feel she provides a safe and caring environment.
I am a fellow DogVacay host and, of course, expect nothing but the best for my dog. The Dog People are one of the best! Katharine and Jeremy were very accommodating to our flight changes and late pickup. They sent daily photos and updates. Our dog seemed very content and came home happy and a little tired from all the attention/playtime. It was very easy to relax and enjoy our vacation knowing that our dog was in good hands.
My little Leo stayed with Katharine and Jeremy 2 nights. She sent me pictures and updates. When he came home, he was rested and happy. I've booked him for 4 nights next week and glad to know he's in such good hands. He's so spoiled and expects much attention which l feel he gets with them. Thanks
Axel really enjoys going to daycare. I enjoy the pictures Katharine sends to me throughout the day. They treat Axel like family.
The whole experience was wonderful! We left our 2 dogs with Katharine to spend the night while we went on a day trip. Our babies seemed to of had a great time! They acted sad to leave. Katharine sent us pictures of our babies and the new friends they made throughout the day, which reassured us that they were being treated with as much love as they would have at home. We will absolutely use Katharine again in the future. Thank you again!!
My pup had a great vacay and I got lots of cute pictures while I was away! Thanks for making sure she got plenty of outside time and fun with her new friends over the weekend
My (pups) Rhodesian ridgebacks love love to come play here! I always feel at ease when I leave them and they are exhausted when I pick them up!! Thank you for always taking such good care of them!!
Hank absolutely loved Katherine and her home! Not being from the area, I felt comfortable leaving my baby knowing that there was someone to love on him as much as I do! Thank you so much Katherine for opening up your home and for taking such great care of Hank!
Our babies had a blast! They love Aunt Katie!!! And Jeremy, and Annie!
Gunter had a great time at his vacay!
This was our first time using Katharine and DogVacay. I had heard so many great things about her over the last few years from my friends at our Vet's Dogpark. We always boarded Bo at our Vet's and even though we paid a lot more to have him placed in a suite, we knew he did not get to socialize with other dogs and had very little outside time, especially on the weekends. So we decided to try her out for the weekend while our son was getting married. From the moment Katharine met Bo, I knew we had made the right decision! She is a natural with dogs and the whole weekend was perfect! Bo is booked to spend a whole week with Katharine in June, need I say more!
Katherine was very sensitive to the fact we had never left our dog with a sitter. She sent frequent pictures and updates to assure us that Minion was enjoying her time with her. We will definitely use her again the next time we need a sitter.
Katherine took great care of my Jeffie while I was gone ! He seemed happy and healthy and I really enjoyed the updates and photos each day! Will definitely use Katherine again!
Katherine was a wonderful host for our dog Peanut. She sent us pictures everyday of the two weeks we were away. Katherine also wrote little notes about how Peanut was doing. Peanut seemed happy and content while staying at Katherine's home. Peanut is just 6 months old and had never been around other dogs. Katherine introduced each dog to Peanut one at a time, helping the adjustment to go smoothly.
Bill and I would highly recommend any dog to stay with Katherine. She shows "love" to each animal.
Bill and Debbie Holliday
Katie is wonderful! I know when I leave my baby with her she will be every bit as loved and adored as she is when she is with me.

She also sends great pics throughout the visit, so I can see that my puppy is probably having more fun at Katie's than she does at home.

I could not recommend her more highly.
Can't say enough good things about Katharine and her company The Dog People. This was our first time visiting and my girl Lily spent 6 fun filled days.
Katherine kept me informed with daily texts and photos. My dog was always cage free,supervised and we'll cared for. We will definitely be using Katherine's service again next time we have to leave our girl behind, or maybe just for daycare every once in awhile so she can play with other pups. I found the cost of this service very reasonable, I have paid more for boarding in a kennel and not really felt that great about the circumstances I was leaving my dog in. NEVER AGAIN! I'm so glad I found Katherine.

Just want to say that Katharine lives up to all her great reviews. This was our first time using Dogvacay, and will use Katharine again, it makes going out of town much more relaxing that you now and trust the person watch you Loved Dog is truly a dog person. Thank you again Katharine, Teddy will be visiting again in May.
Katharine did an excellent job taking care of our Jersey! I did not worry while away knowing she was having a great time with Katharine. I received updates and pictures during her stay easing any concerns. I think Jersey was a little disappointed coming home and missed her friends at Katharine's! This has been the best boarding experience we have ever had! Thank you Katharine!
Katherine is excellent! Peanut had a great time at daycare and was all played out when she got home! I will definitely be sending Peanut and her new sister Mira to Katherine for Daycare/Boarding again!
Katherine was great! I think my dog was a little disappointed when I can to pick him up, he didn't want to leave! Definitely will use Katherine again!
Katie is fantastic, she loves and treats my 2 girls as if they are her own. And they love to get to spend time with Jeremy too. She also trained them not to sleep on the bed which has been a lifesaver for my allergies.
She also is able to accommodate to my varying and constant travel schedule. They both are fantastic.
I travel often for work and always want the best for my pup, Katharine made leaving town such a breeze! I could tell my dog Stella had a wonderful time and was in good hands. It's so great to get daily updates on how she was doing, and how much fun she was having playing with the other dogs! She was also very accommodating and flexible in allowing me to pick her up as soon as my flight landed. I will be using Katharine regularly!
As always when we need to go in a trip, our biggest concern is if Olivia will have a good time and if she will be happy were we leave her. Choosing Katharine was a good decision. She took a very good care of our dear Olivia and sent us picture almost everyday. We were happy and without worries while we were away. It is a great relief to have someone you can trust in taking care of your pet. I highly recommend her.
Katharine is great, she knows how to greet and treat the dog according to its needs. We were a little bit worry about our dog Olivia, because she is a rescued dog with a very bad and sad beginning and it takes some time for she to know and accept new people. But as soon as she saw Katharine, and the way Katharine approached to her, was magic! Olivia had a very good time during a day care with Katharine, a day to know each other and the other dogs.
My boys always have a pawsome time on vacation with Katie. I love getting the photo updates and texts on how they are doing.
Our dog couldn't have been in better hands.
Katharine was wonderful once again! I booked last minute due to an emergency and she quickly accepted. Such a life saver! Thanks! Kerry
My pup had the best time with Katherine! She sent me pictures to give me updates, and did a fabulous job taking care of my pup. We will be back :)
Another fun night with Katharine!
Katharine was very well organized, and did a great job with Hank, our newfie. We got fun pics and updates throughout his stay. I would recommend her services to all.
This was the first time that I had to make arrangements for my dog to stay with a stranger, so needless to say I was a very nervous dog mom!! Katharine is absolutely AMAZING!! I knew right away from our meet and greet that she would treat my baby just like she was her own! She sent me pictures every day of the week long visit - I didn't ONCE worry that she wasn't getting OUTSTANDING care - though I have to admit the snuggle pics made me a little jealous! HAHA I would recommend Katharine to anyone and EVERYONE! A+++++++
Pumpkin was cared for like a dear family member, and we felt that he was safe and secure. We received pictures and daily updates, which was extremely comforting.
Katharine was great! She was quick to respond to my request. I loved getting pictures text to me. We communicated the whole time I was gone. And my dog seemed to have a blast. He was so tired when he got home from having other dogs to run and play with. Thanks Katharine!
Katharine treats my 2 dogs as if they are her own. I never have to worry when I am away on business. I love the pictures that I receive while I am away. I have and will recommend her to all of my friends that are pet owners. I'm very thankful to have her and her husband Jeremy available to take care of my girls.
Katharine was amazing. Sent messages with pictures to keep me updated. In addition to the other dogs and big yard for playing, she took Molly for a hike. Definitely will have Molly stay with her again. Molly can't wait; wasn't sure she was going to leave this past Sunday.
Otis is always happy to see Katharine and any other buddies she has waiting for him to play with. Normally, it's hard to get him out of the car, but when we arrive at Katharine's he's eager and can't wait! When we get home, our almost 9 month old Newfy puppy is nice and chill for a couple of days after - it's a win-win for everyone!
Katie was fantastic, and Mowgli had the best time!
Great visit, she seems to really care about the dogs she keeps and from as far as we can tell our dog was taken care of and enjoyed her stay. She sent us updates and pictures through out the day and that made us feel a little more comfortable. We will definitely use her services again.
We were looking for a pet sitter at the very last minute and Katharine came through for us. She was wonderful and made us feel completely at easy. Daisy did not want to come home! We will definitely be using Katharine again.
Ruby Rose always has a great time at Katharine's. She loves playing with all the other dogs and comes home tired and ready to chill!!!!
Katharine simply loves to take care of our furry friends. I don't think you will find another person that cares about our family members like Katharine. Also we love it when she sends pics! Anyone that is looking for a pet sitter, look no further.
Katharine was responsive from the first email. She is professional, and attentive. Our pup loved playing with the other dogs. I absolutely recommend Katharine as a host!
Always wonderful!!! I could not ask for a better second home for my boys.
Our Newfy pup's first time at a doggy day care couldn't have gone better. He had a variety of other dogs to play with and they all had a good time. Katharine sent plenty of pictures of them, and when we got home, he was wiped out. It was good for him, and Katharine was so accommodating, they even set up the tv outside so they could watch the dogs! We will be having many more day care days!
Katie treated my dog like the queen she thinks she is!
We love Katharine!! I was worried that Bob, our Cavapoo, would not do well in a normal kennel setting so I searched until I found what I believe is the perfect fit for him! I took Bob's small crate just because sometimes he goes into it when he wants some peace and quiet but Katharine said he didn't go inside it once! She even let him sleep in her bed at night which for Bob is exactly where he wants to be. And one more thing - my return date kept changing while I was away and Katharine was more than accommodating! Thank you so much Katharine!! We will definitely be using you again!!
We had another positive experience with Katherine!
I am so happy we found Katharine! I have a dog who is *usually* very needy, acts like a baby, and has separation issues. When she went for her meet and greet she went running into Katharine's house with her tail wagging. She normally acts sketchy in a strange place/around people she doesn't know. I felt right at home when we walked in and Katharine made me and my dog feel like we have known her forever. She kept me updated all weekend and I could tell when I picked my dog up that she had a good stay. I would recommend her to anyone, especially if you are nervous leaving your pets. She is great!!!
Murphy had a great stay! The hosts were very accommodating and flexible - we'll use them again. By the way, their place is very close to the airport, which is a terrific bonus.
Has always my boys had a GREAT time with Aunt Katie and Uncle Jeremy, and cousin Annie!!! They love, love, love it!
Katharine was an awesome sitter for our dogs. She had exceeded our expectations by staying in communication with use and sending us dog pic's everyday. She really allowed our dogs to fell at home. My wife and I are pleased that we found her and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a vacay spot for their furry family member.
Princess had a wonderful time at Katharine' house. She enjoys all the socialization with the other dogs.
Ruby Rose always has a wonderful stay at daycare with Katharine and the other doggies!!!!
So glad we found this awesome host!!!!
Ruby loves her new daycare. Katharine is awesome! I love getting pics throughout the day on her fun and play with the other doggies!
Katharine is the perfect pet sitter- she obviously loves all dogs, and knows how to make everyone feel at home! She sent photos of Apollo with his new buddies throughout his weekend vacay, and he totally had a blast! He was pooped when he got home :) I would definitely recommend her!!
We are new to the area and have a senior dog that has never stayed with anyone but family. Katharine was great in making sure he got his daily medicine and prescription diet food. She allowed him to sleep in her bed since he is used to sleeping with us. She provided us updates and pictures throughout the week. You can tell she is a true dog lover. I would definately bring Homer back again.
We were kept informed during the entire visit thru notes and pictures. Our pup seemed to be well adjusted and having a good time. I would have no problem leaving him again at such a welcoming home.
Katharine was generous enough to take my pup for daycare on super short notice (I called her on Tuesday for help on Thursday!) because I had to pick up my mom from the airport when she came in for a last-minute trip. Then, of course, the traffic getting back from Nashville was terrible and Katharine had to keep Nigel until the following morning because I could not get back in time to pick him up. She was so kind and helpful even though I was dealing with such difficult circumstances, and I appreciate her so much for doing that.
Not only did she accommodate me, she also made my Nigel feel right at home, giving him belly rubs and letting him play with the other dogs (his favorite!)
He had a blast, and I got regular updates including photos of his antics, which I loved. He slept the entire next day to recover from all his fun, which is always a good sign to me because it means he had a great stay. Thanks so much, Katharine!
It's likely your dogs will have more fun than you do on vacation! Katherine is so accommodating to any and all needs for both the dogs and the owners! She will text pictures of your dogs every day so you can rest assured they're enjoying themselves. I have never kenneled my dogs and so I've never had the heart to leave them at a kennel when we're gone. I've always had a wonderful experience with home boarding and it helps me to enjoy vacation and not have to worry! Her and her husband are running a perfect set-up and I don't have a single complaint! I'm so thankful for wonderful people who I can trust with my fur babies. Thank you for all you do!
Another great stay with Katharine!
Katie's house is great for leaving my dogs at! If my dogs could talk they would tell me they want to go back there for daycare everyday. And they were nice and tired last night after daycare, so everybody wins.

Will be using Katie in the future for daycare and boarding.
Katharine was excellent! She is just one of those people that makes you feel at ease as soon as you meet her. Very accommodating for our last minute trip. Great picture updates, it was nice to see our pup happy and having fun. Already booked again for our next trip!
As usual Katharine was awesome with Spooky, my go to sitter!
Katharine really has a way with dogs. My dog is skittish at best around new people, but she warmed up to Katharine right away. Her house is a perfect home away from home! I won't hesitate to book with Katharine for my next trip.
I am ecstatic that Katharine and Jeremy have started the Dog People in my hometown. I know my dog is in good hands when she stays with them, and they offer the most in terms of convenience and flexibility. See you again soon!
This was the first time our new puppy had an overnight, and Katherine took excellent care of him all weekend! We received pictures throughout and updates that showed what a great time he was having, and our kids loved seeing those. When our lllooonnnggg drive home was delayed by traffic and kid potty training issues, we were able to add on an extra night with Katherine without any problems. This Dog Vacay helped with his socialization with other dogs, and we got to enjoy our trip knowing he was well taken care of. We definitely recommend Katherine!
Capt had a great time with Katharine. He was part of their family. Also she sent me daily pictures and updates and was very flexible when Captain had to stay another night. Katharines attitude and energy make the dogs feel so happy. Thank you Katharine!!
As always, GREAT! GREAT! GREAT! My boys love having time at Aunt Katie's!
She was AMAZING!!!! So sweet and loving. Her house was very cleaning. I loved that she sent me picture with updates on him each day. We will be using her again!!!
Excellent! Highly Recommend!!
Katharine is an excellent host. She is extremely caring and attentive to Spooky's needs and quirks. Spooky had a great time while there and had no anxiety issues. Katharine went above and beyond to ensure Spooky's stay was the best it could be. Have already booked another stay with her!
I had an emergency and needed to find a sitter that day and a friend has said that same morning that she was using Katharine and really liked her. I didn't try to book until around mid-afternoon and because I could only attempt via the booking application on DogVacay I was worried I wouldn't hear back in time. Katharine responded within the hour and we were booked! I got great pictures and comments daily and felt Jilli was in good hands. I will definitely use Katharine again.
Katharine it the best!!! Our one year old active beagle had the best time. We know this by the pictures she sent while on our trip. Katharine is very professional but at the same time, warm and welcoming. She was very good collecting all information needed to caring for our pup, such as special needs and habits. Can not say enough about how happy were are with Katharine's care for our little puppy.
Our boys had a blast at daycare! They have missed the play with other pups; came home tired and happy! As always!!! We love Aunt Katie!
Katharine took great care of my dog. I could tell my dog got plenty of exercise and attention and I was well informed throughout my trip via pictures and emails. She came back happy and healthy. She loved the baby pool in Katharine's nice and clean fenced yard!
I highly recommend Katharine's services.
Katherine is very nice, however when we picked our pups up they were acting very depressed which concerned us. One of our dogs had scratches all over his head and a bad bug bite on his eye. A day after bring home they had terrible coughs from being around so many dogs and having dirty water. Not to mention that that one wasn't very supervised outside which resulted in him eating mulch and crying as he tried to have a bowel movement. Not a very happy puppy momma.
My dog Benny stayed with Katharine and came back to me happy and tired, just the way I like it. I never want to use a kennel again, because he came back to me full of energy, and horse from barking.
The Dog People took my Jefe for 2 weeks! We had to wait until it was closer to time for us to leave, to book and they worked with us on scheduling. Even though they were full on a couple of the days, they made an exception and took him in. Jefe had a great time! When we picked him up, he was looking sharp with his new sleek adult coat! He shed most of his puppy coat at their home. He looked well exercised and through the pictures, I don't think he did much resting :) We appreciate them taking such good care of our fur baby!
From the moment we met Katherine we knew we had found the right place for Bella! Katherine is so sweet and attentive to Bella!! we would recommend her to everyone!!!
As always, my precious "boys" had a great time at Aunt Katie's. They love it there!!! Content, happy, loved... what more can you say. Katie is GREAT. And, of course so is Annie and Jeremy! :-)
Cooper and Savannah had another great day with Katharine!
We had an awesome experience with Katharine! Brie was very happy staying with them and getting to play with the other dogs. Katharine sent us texts and picture updates so we could see how much fun she was having with everyone. She treated Brie like she was one of her own and I am so glad we found them! We will definitely use them again and highly recommend them!
Katharine was such a good friend to our little yorky mix Rufus. Katherine was very conscientious and kind, and Rufus was very happy staying with her for a week. Katharine is definitely our go-to petsitter now.
Cooper and Savannah had another great weekend with Katharine!
We were so thrilled to have Blondie to stay with Katherine. We loved her updates and the absolute love she gave our dog while she was on her doggy vacay. It was so nice to know that our dog was in the care of someone that truly and i mean truly loves dogs! We will use her services again.
Cooper and Savannah had a great time with Katharine. This was their first visit and they both felt right at home. Cooper especially loved playing ball and chilling out in the doggie pool!
My boys had their first overnight stay with Katie and the other "kids". They had a blast!!! It is so great to know they are loved and well taken care of. What I also love is all the great photos sent my way showing the grand time my babies are having. They love Katie (and Jeremy).
This was our first time to use a private dog sitter. And I wish we had found Katharine sooner!!! She put us at ease on our first meet and greet. I could tell right away how much she loves dogs! Our dogs were with her for almost 2 weeks and I'm not sure they missed us at all :-) Katharine treated them like her own and they had a great time playing with the other dogs as well. She was also so great to send us text and picture updates so we could see how happy they were. I didn't worry about them for a minute and it really helped us be able to enjoy our vacation too. Just can't say enough good things - will definitely use Katharine in the future!
Katharine was awesome. We got tons of pictures and updates about Lizzie while we were away which helped us feel good about leaving her while we were at the beach. She had a blast!
This was our first time using a DogVacay, in the past we have used our vet boarding service. We were extremely happy with the boys stay at Katharine's. Our Boston (10yr old) normally experiences separation issue and will not eat, he had no issues at all at Katharine's. Our Lab (2yr old) loved all the interaction with the other dogs.
We enjoyed seeing the text messages Katharine would send with the pictures of the boys each day.
We will definitely book with Katharine again.
Unbelievable experience!! I could not have found a better person to take care of my Great Pyrenees while I was out of town. Katharine is a unique individual who is able to make the dogs and the owners comfortable from the first meeting. She is the best!!
My husband and I have had our dogs for over 10 years, so we are very protective and attached to them. From the first moment we met Katherine we knew she would be great with our dogs. She has an awesome personality. During our meet and greet she asked alot of questions about the dogs, so she would know how to care for them. We booked her as soon as we got home. We just picked them up from their first visit and she was great with our dogs. She sent us updates throughout the dogs visit. I would highly recommend Katherine.
Katherine really gave our little guy a safe, caring, and fun home away from home during our week away. We felt comfortable with Katherine immediately. During the meet and greet at her house, she was super friendly and very dog smart. We will definitely take Rufus to her whenever we have to leave town.
Katharine and her husband took my dog, Jefe, in at the last minute! It was really difficult finding someone that did not have breed restrictions, due to insurance or other reasons. After discovering, we found Katharine! She was so pleasant to talk to and opened Jefe with open arms. She worked with us with pick up and drop off time and never made us feel rushed (although she had every right to)! What a sweet woman. It was clear to see that Jefe felt at home, from the pictures she sent! I never had to worry that he was scared, wasn't given enough attention or bored. He was never stuck in a kennel and got to sleep in the house, with dignity. Jefe even got to go to a pool party! My husband and I enjoyed our last minute anniversary weekend, while our furless babies enjoyed their Aunt and Uncle time and our fur baby had a special vacay of his own! If there is ever a time where we can't take our puppy along with us, again, we will be giving Katharine and her husband a call!
Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful! We are so happy to have a home with someone that will love and take care of my boys! We had our meet and greet on a Thursday afternoon; the following week my boys had first daycare session AND as soon as we had turned onto the street leading to Katie they were whimpering with joy, tags wagging and immediately "flew" to her front door. Enough said. WOOF!
Super late review: Katherine was absolutely wonderful with our pup! He's a tiny Yorkie and my biggest worry is the amount of care and attention he would get, especially during potty training. Truthfully, I have a constant fear of other dogs crushing him. My puppy loved Katherine so much that he would run to her front door after we got out of the car. If I hadn't moved away months ago, I would go use her again without hesitation. She texted me pictures of him throughout the day and I truly appreciated that. I could see the that he loved spending time with her. Thank you so much Katherine!
Katharine is awesome as always!
My dog Benny got to play all day with all the dogs that stayed the weekend. Benny came back tired, just the way I like him. I appreciated their availability to not only for the meet and greet, but also for drop off and pick up. Next time I need to go out of town, or go on a vacation I will definitely be returning to Katharine.
I knew the moment I met Katherine, that my puppies were in good hands!! She greeted them with lots of love and they were so happy to be with her and her husband! My pups are going to miss the other playmates
Welcome to HSV Dog People! I'm so glad you guys are here. I've already booked twice in three weeks since it's the end of the school year. They've done a great job keeping my escapist Jack Russell entertained and out of the streets. See you again soon......

Steve M.
I'm a little partial to Katharine and her husband -I know them personally- but just had our first experience with them as dog-sitters. They obviously love dogs and take care of them like their own. They have the perfect setting and perfect experience and temperments for the job. We received photos and text messaging updates on our baby while we were away.
Highly recommend their service!
I loved the pictures that she sent me throughout the day and the text messages with updates!! We will be using Katharine again!!
Salem thought it was fantastic
Katharine was great! We received daily updates on Baxter and some great pictures. She loves dogs and it shows. She was easy to work with and I couldn't have asked for better care of my dog. He seemed to have a great time, too.
Excellent...Highly endorse her.
My boys had a great time with Katharine. I love getting the photo updates. They always come back tired and happy from their vacay.
Katharine and Jeremy are WONDERFUL! We have used them 3 or 4 times now I believe over the last few years. The first few times with one of our dogs and this time with our new puppy. I can't say enough good things about them and the care they give their pups. I think I got daily texts from Katharine with updates and/or pictures of Archer. She truly enjoys taking care of the dogs that come through their door and goes above and beyond to spoil them with love and attention as if they are hers. I tell her after every visit that I am afraid my dogs are going to come back depressed after being with them! We will continue to use Katharine and Jeremy again and again anytime we are going to be out of town.
Awesome as always! Yuki was well loved and cared for while I was away! I never have to worry about my babies when they are with Katharine!!
Pawsome! Henry is always exhausted at the end of his vacations. Definitely recommend!
Our Jack Russel mix Layla was very well cared for while staying with Katharine. We got just enough texts and pictures to know she was doing good and having fun without being intrusive, and her Golden is an amazing pal who made even our normally anxious dog feel right at home. I would recommend her to anyone in our area in need of short or long term boarding.
Another great visit leaving Harley with Katherine! Doesn't make me feel bad for leaving him for 7 days!! Picked him up today and was surprised with an Arts and Crafts gift which was so cool made by Harley. Thanks again Katherine!
This was the first time i have ever left my dog with a stranger. She was pretty nervous, but she did great! Katharine sent me lots of pictures and updates which made me feel much better.
Katharine was great about fitting us in at the very last minute. Overall, this was a great experience for all of us! I would definitely recommend Katharine to all my friends and I will use her again if the need arises. 5 stars for sure!
Katherine is awesome! Our typically nervous Shih Tzu was so comfortable spending the weekend with her. She even let him sleep on her bed, like he does with us at home! I couldn't recommend her highly enough. She treated him like he was her own precious fur-baby, and the peace of mind that gave me during our vacation was priceless!
Only use Katharine if you like a happy dog while you are away from your furbaby.
This was our first experience with Dog Vacay and we absolutely loved it! Katharine was very professional and welcoming. Her house is very nice and extremely accommodating for the dogs. Katharine is genuinely concerned about the welfare of the dogs and inquires about every detail necessary to make the dog's stay the best it can be. Our dog, Alphy, had a blast and came home extremely tired. We will be using Katharine every time we go out of town for a reliable and safe place for our pup.
Katharine and her husband are a life saver! We dropped our dogs off for the first time and right away they made them feel right at home! I received text messages and pictures throughout their stay letting me know how great they were doing. I thought this was so nice of Katharine to do so I didn't worry about them. We picked them up on Sunday morning to travel to Chicago. They slept the whole way there. They obviously had a great time and I think they were sad to leave. Katharine is definitely the best dog sitter we have found! Thank you so much for taking such good care of our pups!
Princess always has a great time with Katharine. When we take her over for a dogvacay she runs to get in. Most dog lovers know what that means.
Best experience in dog care. Katharine is fantastic and has a sweet soul that keeps everyone at ease.
Findlays home away from home. Katharine is amazing at what she does. I don't think twice leaving him with her.
Awesome as always!! This is probably the only place my little pup doesn't miss me. Wonderful experience.
Katherine came highly recommended by friends. Being this was our first time using this type of service I was a little concerned about leaving my baby. Katherine quickly took away my worries in the meet and greet. She also kept me updated during the stay by sending me text and pictures. She has a great love for dogs. We would definitely use her again.
Awesome! Every thing we could ask for. Katherine sent updates throughout Harley's stay with pics. It was nice to be away and knew our boy was being taken care of. I know Harley is excited for staying over again!
Always a great host, my boys had a great time.
I don't think my dog wants to come back home after staying with Katharine. He is well taken care of and enjoys having the extra puppy company of Annie.
Once again, Coby had an awesome stay with Katharine!
Always awesome! Augie had a great time.
Love these guys, my pups always have a great time!
Great experience! We will definitely use Katharine's services again. It made a huge difference knowing Goose was in someone's home rather than a kennel.
I will always make sure to book with Katharine anytime I leave town or well.. Anytime in general! My goal was to find peace of mind through DogVacay and Katharine provided that for me with the BEST care (not to mention FUN) for my pup, Mazzy!
Katherine was amazing! I knew my dogs were in good hands from the moment we arrived. She is so friendly and you can tell she has a passion for what she does. We used her when our normal sitter could not watch our pups. We have already cancelled him and booked her for our future vacation. Totally our gain! Thank you again. Ps She will send you photos of your pups happily playing and we did not even need to ask. That was super nice since I don't usually want to ask in fear of bugging.
This is Coby's second time staying with Katharine and we could not be more thrilled with our experience. Coby loves his time there and goes running into the house excited as soon as we pull up. Katharine also has flexible drop off and pick up hours which are so helpful for those who work. So thankful we found her and will use her for all our future trips!
Our dogs absolutely love going to Katharine's! They always have fun playing with the other puppies there and they get home tired and sleep for the next few days recovering from the non-stop playing they do there. I love the text messages with pictures of how they are doing and she is very concerned with their well-being. Katharine is also very accommodating to our busy schedule and we are very grateful for that.
Ryuu LOVED his stay with Katherine! I had to take a trip to Nashville for the day to see my doctors and did not want to leave baby Ryuu alone all day so we booked with Katherine. She has doggie sat for us before so I knew Ryuu would be well cared for and safe. When I picked Ryuu up he was happy and tired from playing all day, I loved it! He slept like a rock all night! Didn't wake me up once! Awesome!
Awesome experience as always!!!!!
It was very easy to make a reservation and Katharine was very easy to work with on scheduling and since we have three dogs, with pricing as well. She truly loves all dogs and we loved that she sent multiple text messages with updates and pictures of their stay. We look forward to using her again in the future.
We were new to the area and needed a sitter on short notice. We scheduled our M & G right away and and were very comfortable leaving Rascal with Katherine. He had a great time and is now into playing with tennis balls.
My dog Leia loves going to Katherine's. She gets excited when we arrive at her house. It is wonderful for me to go on vacation and not feel guilty about leaving my fur baby. Katherine texts and sends pictures to let me know how Leia is. It helps me relax and enjoy my vacation. I can not thank her enough. Leia has visited with Katherine and Jeremy a few times and she has always come back relaxed and tired.
Kathrine is very kind. She took a good care of Casanova, she was sending me his pictures and updating me about his condition. I highly recommend her for everyone. I fully trust Kathrine to have Casanova staying with her any time I will be out of town.
Katie did such a wonderful job with my two dogs-- I know they had a great time at her house! She made my trip better, too, by sending me updates (with pictures!!!) to let me know how things were going.
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!! We recently moved to the area and I was having trouble finding a good boarding place for Ryley, unfortunately that isn't always easy. We really just wanted a home away from home for him, somewhere he would get lots of love, and get plenty of playtime. I am so glad that I did more research and found Katharine! She went above and beyond to make sure Ryley would be totally comfortable for his stay during our meet and greet. She also used this time to thoroughly go through all the little details for him so she and her husband could give him the best care!! TONS of play time too!! They have a nice, large fenced in yard and make trips to the dog park and greenway with the dogs staying with them. Although he only stayed one night, Ryley is totally wore out from his stay, and while picking him up I had to convince him to go for a ride to come home with me!!! Another plus, she sent me pictures of him which really eased my mind. Truly a wonderful experience and I'm booking his next stay ASAP!! THANK YOU SO MUCH KATHARINE!!! :)
Princess always enjoys her stay Katharine. She looks forward to staying there.
Fantastic experience as always. Katharine is just the gentlest soul and perfect to host and love any animal she comes across. Very happy we found her and will not go anywhere unless she's available. Could not be happier and feel content when we do have to leave our dog.
Katharine has been so amazing and sweet to my little Yorkie! When we get out of the truck, he runs straight to Katharine for day care and is so excited to spend the day with her and the other dogs. I truly appreciate her allowing me to drop him off early in the morning before work. It's very hard to find businesses that allow drop-offs before 7am. Not only is she flexible, but I love that it's in a home and he's getting that loving attention and play time! I am happy that I don't have to settle for a kennel style boarding place for my sweet puppy. Thanks so much!
I LOVED leaving my baby Kōga with Katharine! When I went to pick him up at the end of my vacation he didn't want to leave! LOL! Katharine sent me updates via text message on how my boy was doing the entire time I was gone. She was very kind and you could tell how much she loves animals and how well she cares for them! I WILL be using Katharine for all my dog sitting needs in the future!
Thank you for accepting our last minute request. Our dogs liked having plenty of room to run around. We will be sure to use you again.
Thank you for caring for our dogs like they were one of your own. We hate that we had to move away and Scooby and Layla miss you as well.
Of course as always our babies feel right at home when they get to Katherine's house. They make themselves right at home and Annie is always eager to greet them! We love having such a reliable place near us to leave our dogs at, where we don't have to worry about their well being or safety or happiness. Makes our time away from them much less stressful. I recommend and have recommended Katherine to several of my friends. She's the best!
She was EXTREMELY wonderful to to us and our Duke! She and her family all loved and cared for our pup. We got daily pics and texts with what they'd been up to. The park, swimming, you name it. Our Duke was pampered beyond all expectations. Thanks so much! I couldn't recommend Katharine more!
Always a pleasure. My dogs are always excited to be there and always happy with their stay.
Katharine was amazing!! We just moved to Clarksville two days ago so having someone watch our little dog when you know no one is stressful. Katharine is a very warm and loving person that instantly made us easy about leaving Findlay with her. He had a wonderful time on his visit and the pictures provided during the day made me happy he adjusted so easily and was having a fantastic day. We can't wait to book again!!
My dog loves it there. I love getting the daily pictures and updates. I am a repeat customer and I plan on using her again.
My dog had such a great time with Katharine! I left him with her for 3 weeks and she sent frequent pics and updates. I will definitely call her again! Thank you so much, Katharine!!
My dogs had an awesome time!!! This is the second time that we have boarded our two very active dogs with Katherine. As soon as we pulled in the driveway, they were both ready to get out and play, they knew exactly where they were! Katherine took such good care of them for us while we were gone and kept me updated on how they were doing with texts and pictures, which made me feel even more comfortable! When I picked up the dogs they were worn out, from playing so much! Katherine and her husband have become our go to sitters for our dogs, knowing that they are well taken care of every time and really do enjoy being there.
Katharine is great !!! I think Maxine had a wonderful time. :))))
Katharine was a wonderful dog sitter for my two big dogs. I appreciated the updates and pictures she sent me while they were there and I know they had a great time as they were tired out when they got home! I would highly recommend Katharine and will use her again when I need a dog sitter!
We just used Katharine's services for the first time over Memorial Day weekend for our 8 year old miniature schnauzer. This was literally the first time I have ever boarded him that he hasn't come running to me, dying to see me and get home. He was as calm as could be. In my mind, this means there was no anxiety for him (as he does have separation anxiety). He trusted Katharine and was provided with a loving, supportive environment in which he got to do the things he normally does; including sleeping between Katharine and her husband. Great folks and a great experience all the way around!
Great host- very pleasant and accomadating. Our dog came home in a great mood and seemed very relaxed.
I had my dog Leia stay a night with Katharine before this visit and I was happy that when we dropped her off for this visit Leia ran right to Katharine when we got out of the car. It made it easier for us to leave her. Katharine took great care of Leia. She sent us texts and pictures. It helped me enjoy my vacation without worry. I would have her stay there again.
No problem. Katherine got back with us very quickly.easy to set up. Molly had a great time. Will take her back again .
My dog loves visiting with Katherine and her dog annie.
Katharine was wonderful. She is an animal lover you can tell when she greets her visitors. Leia, my Cocker Spaniel took to her immediately. We felt very good about leaving Leia with Katherine and Jeremy. They are both very nice and the atmosphere is relaxed and fun.Their dog Annie is sweet and welcoming.
Katharine sent me updates on Leia and even a picture. I really appreciated that. When we picked up Leia she was happy to see us but I could tell she wasn't stressed. She had plenty of exercise and was tired when she got home. I am already planning to have Leia stay with them again.
We LOVE having Katharine host Maggie!! She is such a sweetheart and clearly loves her pup to pieces as well as any other dog friend that comes by. Maggie is exhausted the next day after being there for a few days with having Annie to play with and dare I say, a little depressed, because she comes home to two cats and realizes she doesn't have her dog playmate at her side. We will call Katharine again and again as long as she is available!
Honestly, I don't need to post anymore. Katharine and her hubby truly love dogs. They treat your four-legged family member like family.
phenomenal is usual. just like leaving them with family.
We couldn't be happier with our dealings with Katharine. I was very impressed with her at our meet & greet when she spent 45 minutes learning about our girls. She kept me informed with texts & pictures during their stay. She brushed their teeth, combed their hair, gave heart worm & Frontline & exercised them - just like they were home.
It's like going from one home to the next. The dogs had a great time and it shows!
Wow! Where to even begin. Katherine is AMAZING! I just can't say enough great things about her. She was outside when we pulled up in her driveway for our meet n greet. My doggies warmed up to her right away. She is so love able with them they felt at home right away. So much so that Tucker lifted his leg to her chair as soon as he walked in! So embarrassing! lol Katherine was so understanding. Tucker has a issue with marking and I was worried about finding someone who was tolerant about this and that is Ms. Katherine! She asked all the right questions to make sure she had all the information she needed to take the best care of my furbabies. I was also impressed with how she introduced her dog to mine. She kept Annie leashed for a few min while my dogs said hello. Once they made friends she let her loose. She was very patient letting me explain all my poochies quirks. When I dropped the dogs off for their 1st overnight visit she greeted us with enthusiasm and was so happy to see them again. She kept me updated with text and pictures. I'm usually nervous about leaving my babies with anyone other than family, but after my experience with Katherine I wouldn't leave them with anyone else. I know they will be safe, sound and well taken care of. She's the best and my dogs adore her and her family!
She is excellent.
The kids seemed to have a great time. Katherine S was truly professional and super pet friendly! I would definitely use her services again!
Great dog sitters, Augie was a little sad to have to leave, and it was great getting text and photo updates on my baby boy.
I could not have been more pleased with Katherine and her husband. I don't think Salem was ready to come home. We really did appreciate just how comfortable I was leaving Salem with them. Whenever I need to have Salem watched I will definitely try to get Katherine
Our dogs were well taken care of while staying with Katherine. It was so nice knowing they wouldn't be locked in a cage for hours every day. I will definitely use dog vac again. We left our dogs with Katherine while visiting our daughter who has cats. She is moving to Louisville so won't be able to use Katherine again but I would recommend leaving your dogs with her.
What a great vacation for my puppies! Katharine and her husband Jeremy were so great to work with! They took in my English Mastiff and Bloodhound for a few days and the pups just loved being there! They have a pup of their own that kept mine busy all weekend. My bloodhound is still wore out 2 days later! They were very helpful in working with me on drop off and pick up times. When travelling there are so many things that you can't account for, it was comforting to know that they would be flexible with the time and my dogs were in very good hands. They sent us great updates that helped ease our minds as well.

It's a relief to know there is someplace that I can take my dogs for a vacay when I can't take them with me!!! The dogs were just at home with Katharine as they are with me.
Katie was SUPER nice. She was very prompt when I was interested in setting up a meet and great and her Goldie Annie is a sweetheart. My two furbabies got along with her and Katie with absolutely no issues. Katie sent text messages and pictures showing me how my dogs were holding up and when I came to pick them up in the evening. Katie and her husband already had everything packed up and in my car, which helped a lot so my baby didn't have to get woken up. I would highly reccomend Katie to anyone! Thanks so much again!
We were extremely happy to have our dog Princess be lodged at Katharine's as she had plenty of company and had wonderful interaction. We believe that she received the most individual attention possible, was not isolated, and was happy when we picked her up. We are so happy with the experience that we certainly will use it again.
Thank you,
Barry, Sylvia and Princess
My husband and I were looking for a kennel for our pup last minute and weren't to impressed with what CLarksville had to offer. I randomly came across this website and found Katharine. She is the sweetest and we felt very comfortable leaving our dog with her. She sent us texts with updates and pictures through the weekend. We will definitely be using her again. Highly recommended!
Ali was like part of the family from the word go. She had a great time!
Katharine was great! My dogs had a great time and I felt very comfortable leaving Jager and Whiskey there, she even took pictures of them during their vacation! When they came home they were EXHAUSTED! They had so much fun playing, I will definitely be booking here again!
Katherine was great. My dogs were well taken care of and happy. I like the personal attention my dogs received. So much better than a kennel.
Fabulous Care. It's obvious that she is a true pet person. I was so impressed with her care and true love. I would not hesitate in bringing my dog back to her at any time.
This was our first time using the site and we are thrilled to have found Katharine to host our pup, Maggie! (: She did a wonderful job and sent a text or two along with a photo of Maggie and her dog, Annie, to show them playing outside. It was nice to be away for a few days and know that Maggie wasn't cooped up in a cage at the kennel that whole time. We will definitely contact Katharine again in hopes of using her in the future!!
