About Katie

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My husband, Ryan, and I have been together since 2005 (married in 2012). We love our dogs, Bella (7 year old Yellow Lab) and Elias (3 year old Chocolate Lab mix) because they bring us joy and entertainment. We got them both when they were 12 weeks old. They are both full of energy and playfulness. They love car rides, walks, chasing balls or laser pointers, sprinklers and watching cars go by from the front windows. My sister lives with us and loves on our dogs as well. Ryan works as a cook at a Retirement Community about 5 minutes from our house (he is looking for a Firefighter/EMT job currently) and I work at a Social Service Agency in Sarasota where I work with older adults living with a form of Dementia/Alzheimer's and those caring for someone with it. We don't work the same hours so the dogs are not home alone for more than 6 hours and Ryan can even run home on his break to check on them if needed. We are both very compassionate and caring people. We live in a nice neighborhood and our home is a normal middle class home with a huge yard (a lot and a half)and plenty of room in the house for dogs to roam and play. We would love for our family to meet and get to know yours. We love making new friends.

Katie is a very loving and caring person towards dogs. I have a Schnauzer that is 12y/o, blind, and diabetic, when she watches him she makes sure that he has a good walking space, has his food and medicine on time. Having the large gated yard let him roam without getting lost. She is always available when I need her.

Katie is a great dog sitter. Katie and her husband have 2 Labs themselves. She has kept our dog countless times and the longest being for 3 weeks. Our dog is on medication and she had no problem giving it to our dog. She is very passionate about all animals.

Katie and Ryan were very thorough and easy to keep in touch with. Penny and Boris had a great time at their place. I would use them again when I need a sitter.
Charlie's stay was excellent. He had a great time and had several other dogs to play with. He came home tired and happy. Kathryn also sent pictures several times that showed Charlie having an excellent experience. We would recommend Kathryn for your dog's stay.
This was absolutely fantastic. They have a huge backyard and it's clean and lovely. Her dogs are so sweet and fun. I had a schedule conflict and had to delay my pick up last minute and they were so understanding and accommodating. I will definitely use her again and again!
Katie and Brian and their two dogs Elias and Bella looked after our 8 month old pup for a week while my wife and I were away on business travel. It was the first time we've had to board our dog and we couldn't have been happier with the service, level of attention, not too mention the continued communication, pics and videos that Katie shared with us. It's comforting to know our pup has a home away from home in NW Bradenton the next time we have to go out of town!
Katie and Ryan were awesome to deal with. I can tell they really like doggies! I felt JJ was well taken care of. We wouldn't hesitate to use them again.
Upon arrival, we felt very comfortable leaving our dog baby with Kathryn. She updated us with pics mid-day of Bailey getting fresh air in the fenced-in back yard. Would definitely recommend Kathryn!
I'm so pleased with my first experience !! I could never ask more for a dog sitter like Kathryn and Ryan. Since I had never ask a stranger to take care of my hyper active pup, I have to meet them first before doing the final booking. They are the nicest dog owner , you can tell they love dogs! They even gave Max a Christmas present after the first meeting
I love Kathryn & Ryan! They live near me and I love that they work with me and my schedule. I'm new to the area and they have made me feel welcome. I highly recommend them. They will even come pick up your fur baby for you! I enjoy working with them. Their two dogs enjoy playing with mine. I appreciate that they allow my baby on the furniture and bed because that is what I do and my dog feels at home there. I'm very happy I found them.
My boxer spent a wonderful week with Katie, Ryan and their crew. We received daily photos of all the fun that she was having with her new friends. We could tell she was in a great, fun, loving and safe environment having a very special vacation. We are so thankful for finding Katie and Ryan. We will definitely be bringing back our boxer for our next vacation.
Katherine was wonderful! She and her dogs welcomed my German Shepherd like family. He enjoyed his stay so much, I was afraid he never wanted to leave. Definitely will book with her again.
Casper had a great time staying at Katheryn's home! He loved playing with their two dogs. I will definitely plan on another vacay in the near future.
I contacted Katie on short notice due to my regular dog sitter no longer able to watch my Sheltie. It's hard to leave your little companion with someone new. I had made plans to be in Paris and I needed some one I could count on. Kati send me videos and text during my vacation and my dog was in good hands. She looked happy and very cared for when I picked her up!
