About Katie

9 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I live in a private house in Queens with my husband and our dog, Shumai, a Shih Tzu . We have access to a covered balcony at our place and a large outdoor backyard at our family’s house several blocks away. You can rest assure that your dog will have plenty of outdoor time in case the weather does not allow for park time. We are also within walking distance of several dog parks and Flushing Meadow Park. We are fully equipped for all types of dogs. We have an abundance of dog beds, gated enclosures, toys, treats and a doggy treadmill.

Prior to any dog staying at our home, I will provide a detailed survey to be completed to ensure that your dog’s time with us is as close to them being home as possible. It lets us know their likes and dislikes, feeding times and medication times if necessary. There are several pet hospitals within driving distance, so in case of emergencies, your dogs will be taken care of.

I work from home so you can be sure that your dog will have plenty of human interaction and have a fun and safe stay!

Katie loves dogs and has 3 of her own, one of them has special medical needs. She takes them out hiking and to the park whenever she gets a chance. She has taken care of my 3 dogs, whenever I need a sitter, she is the first person I think of. Her dogs are well socialized and gets along with everybody and everydog.

I've used DogVacay quite a few times now, always with good results, but Katie is above and beyond the most fabulous pet sitter I've ever had the pleasure of encountering. She kept me updated multiple times per day with photos and tales of what she pleasure of encountering. She kept me updated multiple times per day with photos and tales of what she and my little guy had been up to. Obviously she fed and walked him, but she also made sure he was loved and snuggled as often as needed, kept him happy with toys and even let him nap on her bed! For the first time ever, this overly-anxious doggy-mama was able to rest easy on vacation! And thanks to her amazing husband Sean, as well! He certainly treated my pup as if he were his own. I can't say enough good things about this couple!! A billion times, thank you! xoxo

My dog had an amazing time, he came back exhausted from his play time adventure. My dog gets a bit of separation anxiety and isn't always the easiest to deal with. He usually takes hours to warm up...but was cuddled up with Katie in minutes. He will to deal with. He usually takes hours to warm up...but was cuddled up with Katie in minutes.

Katie and her husband are very nice! They even helped to groom Pokemon. He was a little nervous but getting calmer and very sweet now.
