About Catherine

21 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! My name is Catherine and welcome to Wag Your Tail Inn! I am passionate about animals and have been all my life. I would love to ease your mind while you are away and be the home where you can safely and happily leave your pup.

I grew up always having a dog in the home. As an adult I have had dogs, cats and other small animals. I have had the wonderful experience of working as a marine mammal trainer/ caretaker for three years at a local Aquarium. I took care of beluga whales, dolphins, seals, sea lions and other mammals. I enjoy helping family and friends while they are away by taking care of their pets such as dogs, cats and even chickens!

I live with my husband and twin 14 year old boys. They are all dog lovers too! We live in a large central air conditioned home in a friendly neighborhood with side walks and parks. The property is a 1/2 acre with a large fenced in yard where your pup can run and play. We have two small dogs. Daisy our 4 year old Maltese and Chloe a 11 month old Shih Tzu.

I work from home so your pup will have 24/7 supervision. Your dog will have most of the house to roam or relax and take naps on the couch! He will enjoy playing with my pups in the yard or getting lots of attention, treats and belly rubs from the family. I also love taking my fur-babies for long walks everyday and so if your pup likes to walk, he is welcome to come along!

The happiness and well-being of your pup is of the utmost importance to me! I am attentive and loving. Your fur-baby will be safe, comfortable and treated as my own. I will send pics via text everyday and will always be available to speak with if you need to call.

My boarding prices:
Small to Medium (Up to 40 Lbs.) - $45/night.
Additional dogs- $25.00
Holiday Rates additional $5 /night.

*ONLY ACCEPTING DOGS UP TO
40 Lbs.

I also offer DAYCARE (for dogs under 30 lbs. only) which is $30 per 8-10 hour day.

Thank you Cathy for the awesome dogsitting! I messaged you only one day before, and you responded fast, and were very accommodating...it was way above my expectations - because from all the pictures, seems my dog had a great time, and was well taken care of, with other dogs to play with...its such a nice feeling to be reassured by the pictures each day...not to mention - they are adorable pics! thank you!! I would definitely return!

Love her Always feel comfortable and know they are well cared for
Opie had a wonderful time staying with Catherine...I have lost count of how many times he has stayed there at this point but safe to say we wouldn't use anyone else unless we had to! Opie has so much fun playing with the other dogs, he sleeps the whole day once we bring him home. I have no doubt that he looks forward to his next dog vacay :)

This was Suzy's third time staying with Catherine. Suzy loved playing in her big fenced in back yard with her dogs. We received mulitple updates and pictures during her stay. Catherine let Suzy sleep on her couch.
Catherine did an amazing job of keeping me up to date on Marty and Gatsby during their stay with her. I was a little nervous to leave both of them since at the last minute Marty came down with an ear infection and Gatsby was also on medication and needed to be on bed rest. I had picture updates every morning of the boys enjoying their time in her huge yard and also pictures of them relaxing in the sun. I love that her house is fenced in as well as all the dogs are allowed to sleep in her room. Great for my two little guys since they adore snuggling! Thanks for taking care of them!

Thanks to Catherine we had a wonderful vacation knowing our puppy was well taken care of!
This is the third time we used Catherine she is great - I know my puppy was well taken care of. I really appreciated the picture and video updates !
My pups loved staying here. We got pictures every day of the fun the pups were having! She always had contact with us regarding the pups and how they were doing. Honestly wouldn't trust my pups with anyone else!! When we picked the pups up, you can see they had a lot of fun and were happy. She has a big backyard for the dogs to run around all day!! Big plus for high energy dogs like mine. I would highly recommend the meet and greet, and you get to see where your dog will be staying. There is no one else I will send my pups to, she did a great job watching them for almost a week!

Very knowledgeable about dogs.
My boys had a wonderful time with Catherine. She was very good dealing with my one dog when there was a Thunderstorm. My boys were happy to see me but I think they would have stayed with Catherine if they could have. I would absolutely recommend her to others.

Would definitely leave my Lucas with Catherine!! Great lady
Everything went flawlessly. Catherine treated my puppy like family. The pictures she sent gave us "new puppy parents" great peace of mind and allowed up to enjoy our vacation.
Terrific! I felt very comfortable. Nova had a good visit and is looking forward to the next stay at "Wag your tail in!"
Catherine was wonderful with our dog. She was very flexible, communicated with us well, and sent us great photos of our dog during his stay. Don't hesitate to use her - highly recommend!
Catherine did a wonderful job. She was flexible when our plans changed, sent pictures and videos daily, and was very easy to get in touch with. She cared for a puppy who we left for the first time and I had absolutely no worries during our trip. I couldn't have asked for better accommodations. I will be a repeat customer for sure!

Catherine was completely attentive to the needs of both our JRT's. One of the girls wanted to be a part of the fun while the other preferred to stay in her crate where she felt more secure. Catherine let them both interact with the other dogs on their preferred level. We were under the stress of a home closing and Catherine made us feel totally secure that our pups' needs were being met and sent photos of the action during the day. We would definitely use her services again and recommend her.

Another great stay with Catherine. I think Ollie has just now recovered from his five days running and playing with his buddies over spring break week. Lol.
Our 6 year old Shih Tzu never had a sitter or was boarded at a kennel and we decided to try Catherine from a recommendation we received.

Catherine took the time to make our dog comfortable and stress free. She also sends photos of our dog interacting with other dogs and to reassure us that our dog is doing fine in her home.

We are very happy to find Catherine as now we will be able to take vacations and feel comfortable that our dog is in very good hands!

We couldn't be happier with Catherine! This is our second time having her watch Opie, this time for boarding. Opie stayed with her for 5 days while we were away...it was the first time we have been away from our puppy for that long and it was such a relief knowing he was in good hands. Between the pictures and videos we received daily there was no doubt that Opie was not only being well taken care of, but having a great time as well. The level of activity and attention he receives is wonderful. I can't say enough about the great care she provides and would highly recommend her.

Catherine is wonderful and I can tell she truly cares about all the dogs in her care! Our Frenchton 8 month old puppy Opie went to Catherine recently for daycare and had a great time. I was nervous because Opie had never spent the day away from home before but Catherine made sure to share plenty of pictures and kept me involved throughout the day with how he was doing. I also appreciated that if she was unsure of something, she didn't hesitate to ask me. I know he had a great time not just from the pictures but also the fact that he slept for hours when we got home! It was the reviews that led me to reach out to Catherine and I can't say how relieved I am to know I now have someone I can trust to care for our pup whenever we need it.

From our first meet and greet I felt very comfortable leaving my dog with Catherine. She is a very caring, kind person who obviously loves dogs and welcomes them into her home. She took great care of my dog, making sure he was happy in his new environment. She sent us picture updates which made us feel less anxious about leaving him. I will definitely use her services again.

Wonderful !! Hailey had a great stay at Catherine's. We were constantly kept kept up to date with pictures, videos and text messages . There was plenty of yard space for Hailey to run in and she made new friends and was treated as part of the family. We already have another vacation planned and will definitely be leaving Hailey with Catherine again. Thank you Catherine for taking such good care of our little girl !!!

Thank heavens for DogVacay! I would have never found Catherine other wise! Murray is treated like a king at her house. I know that by all the pictures she sends me daily of Murray having a great time playing with her Daisy and Max and any other dogs that are boarded there. At the end of the day he is exhausted and sleeping comfortably with the others in a dog bed, or sofa or someone's lap or bed! When we pull up to her house he knows where he is and can't wait to get to Catherine!!! He knows when he has a good thing. Thank you again mommy Catherine for loving our Murray as much as we do!

We have never left our dog with anybody before but we felt so comfortable with Catherine. She really does love all the pets she cares for and it shows. She sent me photos throughout the day and let me know how our pup was doing. We will definitely use her services again.

Catherine was wonderful with my doggies! My pooches loved her and her family!
Catherine was awesome. My pups were so happy and relaxed when they came home. I loved that she kept me posted every day and put pictures of my babies up on the site. She was so caring. Would highly recommend Catherine. Not too many other dogs and they were all small like mine.

Another good night for Casey with Cathy!
This was Ollie's first time away from home. Even though it was just for one night, I was a little concerned about leaving him with a sitter. After reading the reviews of Catherine, I decided to set up a meet and greet. Catherine answered all my questions and Ollie got to meet her two dogs as well as current guests. When it came time for his sleepover I was very comfortable leaving him with Catherine. She really paid attention to him and made sure the feisty 6 month old got along with all the other guests. She also kept me updated with texts and photos of Ollie having fun with his new friends. Will definitely use Catherine again.

From drop off to pick up and pictures in between it was all great!
Macie has the best time at Catherine's house! She loves playing with her dogs as well as other visiting dogs. And she gets lots of love and affection from Catherine. I always relax and enjoy my vacations since I know Macie is in such good hands.
We left our dog, Oreo for an extended weekend with Catherine and we couldn't be happier. She updated us daily with posted pictures on the website and texts of how our little girl was doing. We would definitely leave our dog with Catherine again.
Catherine was absolutely wonderful. We felt really comfortable leaving our Dog with her. From day 1 she sent pictures and even videos of him having lots of fun, even swimming in her pool! There is no better feeling knowing your dog is being well cared for while you are away on vacation. Thank you again! Diana and Scrappy too!

Murray once again had a great time and came home exhausted! Mommy Catherine is the best and he loves her to the moon and back. Thank you once again Catherine. We are clients for life!!
Ben is really pooped after the fun he has with Catherine !
Benjamin LOVES his home away from home! Thank you Catherine for all the love from his bonus mom!
I was extremely pleased and can't thank Cathy enough for the wonderful care she took of my baby! I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to leave their puppy for vacation! I will no doubt be using her again!!!! Lots of love in that household!

Benjamin is so excited every morning to come and play! He is happily exhausted when I pick him up.
Cathy was great! She happily welcomed Molly on short notice for the weekend. She kept me updated on how Molly was doing in her new surroundings. Cathy is a genuine dog-lover. Thanks for the great care. Joanne
What can I say?! Murray loves going to Mama Catherine's house!!!! He is treated like a king there! As soon as he sees her house, he gets excited and can't get onto her house fast enough. I am forever thankful that I found Catherine and also grateful for DogVacay. Gone are the days of leaving our pets in kennels! Murray is extremely social and loves playing with the other dogs at Catherine's. He also sleeps in Catherine's bed or her son's bed. Can't get any closer to home:)

Catherine was wonderful!!! She was so accommodating, sweet, wonderful to my pups, and kept in touch with updates and pictures everyday. Absolutely loved her and her dogs! Definitely will be returning to stay with her.
Thank you for taking care of our Benjamin! He didn't want to leave!!!
Catherine was great!! Niko had a great time with her this weekend. Niko will definitely be back there for another visit.
Diesel's vacation with Catherine was amazing! She would send me pictures everyday of him having a ball! Videos of him running around her huge fenced in yard with all of his new furry friends! We could not have picked a more patient, loving and caring person to have our little guy stay with while we were on vacation! Thank you Catherine!

Macie had a wonderful stay with Catherine and her family. We loved getting pictures of her....and she was having a great time. Catherine truly cared for Macie as if she were her own. While Macie was excited to see me when I picked her up, she was still trying to give Catherine kisses so I know she loved being with her. Would definitely board Macie there again!

Catherine was so great with our doggie Rico. Her place is so inviting and has plenty of space for any dog to play. Catherine was so awesome with corresponding with us and shared plenty of photos each day of Rico having such a fun time. Catherine treated Rico like he was her own. We will definitely use her services again the next time we vacation in Long Island.

There are not enough words to describe how wonderful our experience wIth Catherine was! Our puppy had the time of his life and Catherine sent us so many pictures I felt like I was there the whole time too! It was awesome! Catherine is a warm, compassionate caretaker and we will be seeing much more of her in the weeks to come. As our puppy is an only dog, we will be sending him to daycare at Catherine's in the near future so he can play with her and his friends!

Our Murray just loves going to Catherine's house! When we pull up to her house, he knows where he is and gets excited. When we walk him to Catherine he is pulling on the leash because he can't wait to get to her. This is how we know Catherine is good to our Murray. Her boys love Murray too. We will always leave Murray with her and never have to worry. We are going away for most of August and Murray will be her baby for that time. I sometimes get jealous because she sends me pictures of her and Murray and she getting my Murray love!!! Thank you always Catherine.

Catherine is AMAZING with my yorkie Diesel! She sent me pictures during the day to see him playing, running and having a great time! I've never seen such a great big smile on that little furry face before! I think he has made a lifetime friend!
Thank you Catherine!

Catherine took such great care of Julius when we left him with her recently. He was treated very lovingly by both Catherine and her family. We loved the pictures she sent us daily and it gave us peace of mind that he was enjoying his vacation as much as we were! I would definitely recommend Catherine and plan on taking Julius back to her again.

Guinness had a wonderful stay with Catherine! Catherine sent me lots of pics while Guinness was there and I could see she was having lots of fun! I was nervous about leaving her over July 4th since she is so afraid of fireworks but Catherine sent me messages to let me know how Guinness was doing and put my mind at ease. I am sure that Guinness will be happy to spend another dog vacay with Catherine and her family!

Riley's stay at Catherine's was amazing, he was treated like royalty. I was updated daily about his vacation with pictures and text messages and it looked to me like he was having a better vacation then I was. Catherine was very flexible with her drop off and pick up times and made me feel very comfortable with leaving Riley for a few days. Thanks for the royal treatment

What can I say? Catherine was wonderful. From the moment I met her at our Meet and Greet I felt good about leaving my babies with her. I absolutely loved all the photos and updates I received during my trip. The boys really seemed to have a good time and got along great with her little cuties, too. I'm very happy to have found someone I trust to leave my pups with. :)

My three Yorkies boarded with Catherine for 10 days while I went to Europe. She took wonderful care of them. She sent me pictures of them interacting with her and her family and the other pups almost everyday. It was so reassuring to see them happy and healthy. It really looked like they were on vacation too!!

This is the first time I ever left my 10 year old Maltese (Buttons) with someone other than family. I was gone for eight days and it was the most relaxing eight days on vacation thanks to Catherine. Catherine was absolutely wonderful. She emailed me and sent me pictures of Buttons everyday so that I could see how relaxed he was and how much fun he was having interacting with the other dogs. My family loved waking up to new pictures of him every morning. Catherine was kind enough to even let Buttons sleep in her bed with her. I couldn't of asked for a better experience. I would definitely recommend Catherine. Buttons will definitely be back. I wish I was able to give her more than 5 stars :)

We were very happy with all of the pictures and updates on how Chanel was doing everyday! Chanel looked so happy that we were nervous she wouldn't want to come home! Chanel was in great hands and I will definitely be using Catherine to watch our dog Chanel again!

My husband and I have used Cathy's dog sitting services several times this winter. What a wonderful feeling it is to be able to drop our dog Lola off for a few days and feel completely worry free. Cathy sends multiple photos of our dog daily and sends frequent updates. I also love how easy it is to get in touch with Cathy. She is so flexible and accommodating when booking, as well as when dropping off or picking up. Lola has a blast when she's with her and her family and she LOVES going to Cathy's house! It is obvious that Cathy and her family just love animals and we feel lucky to have found such a caring, friendly and wonderful caretaker like Cathy!

A big "thank you" to Catherine and her family for taking such good care of my puppy Rosie. Each day I received pictures and notes about how she was doing. I felt like I left her with family.
We have used Cathy several times to watch our dog Lola while we are away. We received tons of pictures each night of how much fun our dog is having. She loves playing with Cathy’s other two dogs as well. Cathy is caring and loving toward our dog and we feel very comfortable leaving her in Cathy’s care. Cathy is easy to communicate with and even packs up all of her toys and belongings upon our arrival. We would definitely recommend Cathy for anyone who needs a safe and loving place for their pet for a day, a night or even a week!

Murray just loves going to Catherine's house! It's no wonder: They treat Murray like he is a king! I have no worries leaving Murray with Katherine and her family and will continue to use her always.
Five stars isn't enough. I would give 100 if I could. I was gone for 2 days and received more pictures of my dogs playing, sleeping and just relaxing than I even have. She is so sweet and down to earth and genuinely loves animals. My dogs love her. I was afraid they wouldn't want to come home! Definitely would recommend and definitely will be back.

Catherine was amazing I had a last minute out of state trip and she was so happy to have my dog back. The photos and updates are so comforting. I have used Catherine in the past and I am very happy!
Our Jack Russell terrier had a terrific time with Catherine and her family! Catherine is super-friendly and really knows, and loves, dogs. We are so happy with the care Cosmo received and all the great photos of Cosmo Catherine sent us every day we were away. We will definitely ask Catherine to take care of Cosmo the next time we travel!

Love Catherine!!! She has been great. She truly loves dogs, and it is such a relief knowing that my dog is being treated so well. She sends pictures frequently, and I can see that he is loving it at her house. I plan on leaving my dog with Catherine whenever I am in need of a dog sitter. Highly recommend!!!!!

All I can saw is AWESOME! Murray loved his stay with Catherine! He couldn't wait to get out of the truck when he saw Catherine approach the truck to get him. He ran into the house and pulled her along! That says something of itself. Catherine and her family treated Murray as one of their own. I don't have to worry at all while he is there. His actions say it all! Thanks Catherine and we will be repeating customers.

Catherine was amazing! I have a baby puppy and was nervous about leaving him but Catherine's photo updates and text messages made me feel so much more relaxed! I truly believe that he had a great time and was loved as if he was her own. I could not have been any happier! She also gave me some great tips. I would only use Catherine for my doggy vacation! Love her.

We are very happy on how he was treated while he was there. There were no problems with him. I will leave him there again. They are very nice people. Carol Haberman & Herbert Taylor
We could not have been happier with the care Catherine and her family gave to our dogs. They took our two dogs in at the very last minute and provided them a safe, fun and comfortable environment. Catherine even slept on the couch so that our one dog who hates to be alone felt comfortable going to sleep knowing she was right there! I would recommend Catherine to anyone and would definitely bring our dogs back to her!
