About Katherine

13 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I moved from Florida to Austin a year ago and haven't looked back since! One of the things I love about this city is how dog-friendly it is. I love animals so much that my friends make fun of me for having a "no harm" policy in my home--I will catch and set any living thing free.

I'm responsible and pretty regimented. I've had my Chihuahua, Bear, for over 13 years and he's still just as playful as when he was a puppy. He's extremely social and has always gotten along with other animals, including cats and birds!

Katherine is literally the best!
Never knew these websites existed and needed a dog sitter at the last minute for my older Pomeranian. I was so nervous about leaving my dog with a stranger but she is no stranger at all. She kindly took my Bosley in and immediately made him feel at right at home. She always sent me pics and put my worrying heart at ease while I was out of town. She was always so reassuring. As soon as I brought him back home he went and sat in his smaller bed exactly like the one her dog has (and he never use to sit in that bed prior his stay with Katherine Bc he always sits in his crate) so I had to send her one last pic Bc I knew that was his way of letting me know he loved his stay with her & maybe even missed her & Bear :) He is the happiest I have seen him in a long time all thanks to Katherine! Again I can't thank you enough for all that you did for Bosley!!!

Katherine was incredible! She accommodated us on a last minute request, and I was so appreciative of the care she took to update me about Bella, especially since this was our first visit with her.
Katherine was great! She was very accommodating for our last minute booking, and she really paid attention what we said about Queso's normal habits and special instructions for taking care of him. The updates were great too :) I would trust Katherine to take care of Queso again!

Katherine did a wonderful job caring for our dog this past weekend. She sent plenty of pictures and updates so that I didn't have to worry about him at all. She was also very flexible with drop off and pick up to accommodate our work and flight schedule. I would definitely recommend Katherine as a dog sitter and will absolutely use her they next time I go out of town!

Our pup had a great time with her chihuahua, Bear! Katherine updated us everyday and sent photos of Tula on vacation. We would definitely recommend her to friends!
Katherine is so great with my dog, Louie. He's a bit older so she accommodated his needs and picked him up so he didn't have to try and do too many stairs and she sent me a bunch of snuggle pictures. She is very responsive and I really trust her with Lou. Will have my pup return to Katherine!

Katherine is the best! My dogs loved her and bear from the start and it was a relief since our dogs are a bit of a handful! We're thankful to have found her!
Katherine was great. Working from home she was able to spend a ton of time with our boy and give him ample attention. Her active lifestyle suited Kobe's needs to be outside and we hope to use her again in the future.
