About Cathy

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I love cats and dogs and offer cat sitting as well as dog sitting! I'm happy to visit your kitty while you're away.

We live in a shady, dog walking neighborhood close to flat and mountainous hiking trails depending on your pets capabilities. I also live close to a couple grassy parks so dogs can run and have local access to water play. Pets are given lots of exercise, love and time to work on their social skills with the other dogs in the pack. Our backyard is fenced in for even more outdoor play. Rates quoted are 24 hours if additional time needed I charge $7.00 per hour. I have an additional surcharge for puppies under 2 years and special needs pets of $15.00 per 24 hours. Daycare available for up to 9 hours per day.

Cathy is a great find! It's immediately apparent that she loves dogs and "gets" what makes each one unique. She also seems to be super organized and efficient. I look forward to bringing Ruby back for another visit.
Buddy had a wonderful time with Cathy. He walked, played, and enjoyed his new friends.
I love leaving Clyde with Cathy! She's fantastic -- experienced, organized, timely and super sweet with the dogs. I highly recommend her... -Dawn
Another great experience with Cathy.
Neela had a great first visit with Cathy. Cathy is delightful and obviously loves dogs! I plan on boarding Neela with Cathy in the near future.
Cathy took great care of Charli. I really appreciated the video updates we got.
Cathy was wonderful! We were so comfortable leaving our new puppy with her. She is so knowledgeable, and also sent pictures each day so we were in the loop on what they were up to. We will definitely use her again, and we would highly recommend her to others!
My dogs had a good time with Cathy and were well taken care of.
Cathy is great with the dogs in her care, and I left my two boys with her knowing they were in good hands. They got plenty of exercise and had fun playing with the other canine guests. I will definitely leave my dogs with her next time we travel.
We are so happy to have found Cathy. Ziggy loves her and had a fantastic stay. Beautiful homely surroundings and much much less stressful for you dog.
Cathy took great care of my pup while we were away. He's got some food allergy issues that have made boarding difficult in the past, but Cathy accommodated him great, and he's had no issues since. The only constructive criticism I might say, is that a few more photo updates would have been nice. I'll definitely be bringing Bunker back again!
Cathy is amazing! She took such good care of our dogs - she was wonderful!
Our puppy liked Cathy right away. He snuggled into her arms and rested his head in the crook of her neck. He spent the weekend playing with other puppies in Cathy's beautiful backyard. She sent us a video of one of their walks which my daughter loved. I was very happy with Cathy's service and would use her again.
Kathy is wonderful! My fearful dog was sitting on her feet at the end of her stay. She updated me with videos of the beatiful trails they walk on and really gave my dog Norah TLC. It was like doggie summer camp. Norah didn't want to leave : )
Cathy is so wonderful. She welcomed our puppy Archie when others turned us down. When I arrived I immediately felt that the environment she has created in her home was perfect - comfy, happy and friendly. When we came to pick Archie up he just wanted to stay and play with all the awesome pals he had made! We will definitely be booking Archie for more stays with Cathy!
She is so nice and accommodating.
Cathy is AWESOME! I had a family emergency to attend to & needed immediate boarding for our 1 year old puppy. I didn't want to put her in a kennel, especially since I was unsure as to how long I would be gone. Upon searching the net, I found dogvacay and knew that was where she would receive the best someone's home. I sent messages to several dogvacay members explaining my situation. Cathy responded quickly, even at such a late hour, and stated that she was fully booked but decided to take our Smokey anyway to help us out. Cathy was extremely accommodating, even coming to our home to pick up our puppy later that evening. Smokey has a very sensitive stomach & Cathy went out of her way to ensure Smokey stayed on her special diet. Cathy sent us videos to keep us updated on Smokey's care and we could tell that she was happy, healthy & loved! I will not hesitate to use Cathy's services in the future. She was definitely a 'puppy' saver!! Thanks again, Cathy!!
When I came to pick up my dog, she didn't want to leave! I was disappointed, but that says everything about how good Cathy is. Not only does Cathy manage dogs of all sizes and breeds, she walks them every day. Mochi came back happy, exhausted, exercised, and safe. I would not hesitate to use Cathy again.
Bailey had another great stay with Cathy - he always enjoys spending time there.
Cathy took such good care of my boy, Bailey. She sent regular video updates from their walks/hikes - I could really see how happy Bailey was. It is so nice to be able to travel and to know that my dog is in such good hands - will definitely us Cathy for my next trip away.
Bailey had a great day with Cathy - she was able to work with his high energy and help him settle in to the routine with the other dogs. So great to know he is in good hands when I am gone!
Cathy deeply understands dogs and takes care of all their needs....physical, emotional, mental in a very caring, fun and professional manner! Our Australian Shepherd / Border Collie mix had a ball staying with Cathy and her friendly, revolving pack for 8 days; and he got plenty of exercise! Cathy takes her pack on a minimum of two extensive hikes daily. Plus she provides lots of running time in nearby grassy areas. She provides her dogs with a caring environment and her videos reveal how active and happy all her charges are throughout the day. We feel so fortunate to have found Cathy! She's exceptional!
Our Weimaraner, Blue, LOVED his stay with Cathy. Lots of great hikes, great communication (including videos and pics) with us while we were away. Would not hesitate to recommend.
Dog's know best and our shy terrier went to Cathy at their first meeting like they were great old friends. Her love of animals shows immediately and we were instantly comfortable knowing she'd take great care of our kitten in our place while we were out of town. Cathy is responsive, easy to work with and goes the extra mile. She even brought toys for the kitty to enjoy. What a relief to know there is someone so uniquely qualified to take care of our critters when we need it!
In a word AMAZING! Cathy is beyond wonderful. As evidenced by the smile on my dog's face when we picked him up, and how the smile started to droop when we were loading him back in the car. Clearly he had a great time with Cathy and her "pack". Cathy was extremely sensitive to our dog's needs (arthritic joints), and sent regular pictures to show how he was doing. Look no further than Cathy to board your dog. You won't be disappointed!
Cathy was great. She has a very nice fenced back yard for the dogs to play and takes them on 2 hikes a day near her house. I would recommend her to anyone needing an overnight.
Cathy opened her home to my two rescue dogs for a last minute reservation and saved our trip. She sent updates and photos while we were away to put us at ease. We picked our fur babies up after a week with Cathy and they had obviously been well taken care of and loved. They were very happy and relaxed in her home. We are so blessed to have found such an amazing place for our dogs to stay when we need to go away. Thank you so much Cathy for the excellent care Greta and Puppy received!
