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 wanted to send a quick message how pleased we were with Katie and Sean this past ten days. They really showed great concern and outstanding care for our dog Rocky. First, they saved us by prompt and last minute commitment after our first pick for dog care did not respond a night before the morning trip. What a relief! Being that our Rocky has never seen or sniff them before, I felt devastated thinking of impact this stress will have on him. To my surprise, Rocky comfortably slept in Sean’s arm the same afternoon and leisurely spread himself all over the bed. Katie allowed whatever Rocky wanted just to make him feel relaxed and accepted. Even better, Rocky had a great company of their seven year old shihtzu Shumai, they took a walk to a dog park few times, he sat by Katie’s laptop and posed for some amazing and memorable photos. Katie were very descriptive in texts and videos she send to us while we were away on holiday reassured and with the peace of mind. By far, Katie has been the best pet sitter we’ve ever had (The same goes for Sean, but ladies go first ;-)). Our Rocky didn’t even care if we came home or not! He loved them. They made sure he comes home extra clean, fluffy and looking better than ever. Katie and Shawn go WAY above and beyond what is expected! We want to thank them with all our heart for their professionalism and genuine love of animals. We couldn’t have asked for better!

Katie was great as always. She took super great care of my dog. He loves going there. She is wonderful.
I'm so glad I found Katie to watch my dog Tako! She was super accommodating, got out of her way to pick Tako up from me at night, and drop him off early in the morning. Throughout the vacay she send me lots of pics of Tako and I can tell that he was loved and also having fun. She was very patient with me as I have lots of questions, and she always respond very fast. Overall I'm really glad that I found her to watch Tako, I would highly recommend her and looking forward to have her watch Tako again! ;)
