About Katherine

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Sage the collie was my first dog.Sage would race down the hayfields chasing airplanes at my grandparents farm. My grandfather joked Sage was really good at it as not one plane ever landed! Then we got Lucky, a miniature black poodle.We put our choices for names in a hat. My brother was just learning how to read. He only knew how to write a few word like "stop" and "go" and "Lucky"from his reader. So Lucky it was.

I've fostered injured and sick animals and taken care of newborn litters through the Humane Society both in BC and in Ottawa. While living in Ethiopia I saved a wild kitten from the streets, nursed it back to health and found it a good forever home when I had to come back to Canada a year later.

I find it a a pleasure getting out for a walk no matter the weather . I will show your wonderful pet lots of love. So far I have hosted Reya the Newfoundland, Damo the Yorkie, Stella and Oliver the border terriers , Pharaoh the Pekingese, Jasmin the miniature Schnauzer, a beautiful Bouvier named Chica, and Guinness a Burnese elder! I walk a 3 month old Vizsla named Daby, and host Lucy a black Labradoodle and Lola a sweet Doberman. Duke is a cute little Lhasa Apso that I walk frequently. Cassie is a small blind poodle I take care of as well. So interesting to be around all the different sizes, ages and personalities.

I will provide unique care for your pet's unique needs. Please book with me if you want a trusted and fun companion for your special one.

Katherine was took care of my one year old rescue, Sadie, fabulously. I recently adopted her, and am working on helping her overcome separation anxiety and difficulties with other dogs. Katherine was very understanding and did a fantastic job with Sadie. She sent me lots of updates throughout the day and Sadie was a happy pup! Thanks Katherine!
Katherine is such a lovely woman! Our dog Lola has been in good hands with Katherine. We have booked both walks and overnights through her and we can tell that Lola just loves her and Katherine enjoys her company
Katherine is always amazing. We will use her at every opportunity.
Katherine was an amazing host to RJ. She was always quick to respond and sent me lots of updates and photos of their day together. Warm and professional and obviously loves dogs. We were very happy with the experience and have already booked another stay.
I had never left my dog Lucy (who is not even 5 pounds) with anyone before. To say the least I was very nervous and stressed about doing this. Fortunately for me I found Katherine who put me at ease from the moment I met her. She was empathic, kind and very patient with me and my worries. Katherine sent me pictures of Lucy and even a little video to show me that she was adjusting and having a good day. This made me feel so happy and I was able to relax while Lucy was in her care. It was obvious that Katherine truly loved dogs and I would not hesitate to book another doggievacay with her again.
Katherine was awesome! She made sure Daisy had a pampered day and took care of her every need.
We felt very comfortable leaving our four-legged baby with Katherine. We had the opportunity to meet with her prior to Pharoah's stay and she was very accommodating to his needs (our need to feel comfortable) and only kept him at her house once Pharoah was comfortable with her. We received daily pictures and updates and our little pooch seemed really comfortable in her home (pictures of him sleeping on his back). He also ate well with her which means he was not stressed. LOVE her and TRUST her. Our only regret is that this and other evaluations like it will make it difficult to secure her services the next time we need her.
Katherine was a fantastic pet sitter. I had confidence since the beginning that my dog will be treated like at home. Katherine took her of my senior dog as if it was her own. Without doubt I will chose her again if I need a pet sitter.
Katherine H did an AMAZING job taking care of our little fur baby Jasmin. I was a little concerned that Jasmin would be a real handful for anyone to look after her because of her severe separation anxiety. She also loves to go out for as many walks as possible and she certainly got plenty of exercise. I was in for a wonderful surprise as Jasmin was perfectly fine with Katherine and even developed a close relationship with her! Katherine sent me many pictures and updates and this made me enjoy my vacation all the more. I didn't worry about Jasmin at all. I would highly recommend Katherine to any dog parents as her dedication and love for animals is awesome. She is so caring, loving and patient. I can't thank her enough for looking after Jasmin. Thank you Katherine!!!
Katherine made our vacation a perfect one! By caring for our dog Guinness our stay was worry free ... She was amazing with him and sent us updates to let us know how he was doing :-) He was happy, walked and well cuddled while we were able to visit Ottawa and not worry if his elderly bones could keep up! Guinness will miss his new friend ... Thank You Katherine!!
Katherine was such an amazing host for Oliver and Stella. They have anxiety about other animals and she did such a good job in following our training requests and commands for when they go on walks, which there were plenty of! They came back happy and tired out after a fun night away. Would go back to her anytime!
Katherine was wonderful. Our dog Reya had an awesome time. We loved receiving the pictures every day to see how our girl was doing. Thank you so much Katherine :)
