About Katie

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
The Grateful Dog is located in the Historic district of Downtown Irvington . It is a two story, smoke-free, air conditioned home with a medium sized fenced in yard which gets plenty of sun and shade at any time of the day. Pets have free range of the home and back yard or have the option to relax in a private, air conditioned room upstairs on a full sized bed with a nice view out of the window.

Food and water stations are located in several points of the home with night lights nearby so they can always find their way. Tasty home-made treats made from all-natural ingredients are provided for your pet to enjoy throughout the stay.

We also feature a large claw-foot tub with a detachable shower head to provide bathing and brushing options. Our dogs are bathed regularly and I have always had a knack for getting dogs to enjoy baths. The pet will not be harnessed or leashed but rather allowed to relax in a large tub and enjoy a good head to toe scrub.

I am originally from West Virginia and my fiance, Chris, is from Indiana. We recently bought our home in Downtown Irvington in a lovely, safe, and quiet neighborhood convenient for long or short walks. We have had pets, mainly dogs, in our families our whole lives and currently own two of our own. Bonnie is a 12 year old mid-sized Border Collie and Jude is a 7 year old, slightly chunky, Shepard Mix. Both are fully vaccinated, animal friendly, and, spoiled rescue dogs.

I have a long history of caring for a variety of animals from newborn puppies to senior hospice for dogs of all sizes and breeds. I have loved every dog I have ever met, and they have loved me back. Chris has a reputation as a "male Snow White". Any and every animal loves him so, do not be surprised if you come to pick up your pet and find him/her snuggled and belly up in his lap. He is also very strong and, if available, can walk the large and extra large breed dogs during their stay.

At The Grateful Dog your pet will be treated as more than a house guest. Your pet will receive the love, attention, and comfort of family.

Katie & Chris are wonderful. I could tell our dog loved them. It was so comforting to know Maggie was living with them in a home setting while we were gone for a week. I know she enjoyed the human (and her dogs) interaction over being in a kennel a were gone for a week. I know she enjoyed the human (and her dogs) interaction over being in a kennel a large percentage of the time. I've told friends about how happy we were & would recommend KatieO to anyone.

Katie and her boyfriend do a terrific job. It's clear to us that Juno loves to visit and gets plenty of spoiling while there. They are great to work with, clearly love our dog, and that makes us happy.
Jake had a great time!! He loved the backyard and he got plenty of attention and exercise.
