About Kate

23 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have 20+ years caring for animals of all types. I currently own and operate Your Pets' Home Away From Home, a premier dog boarding facility. I ran and managed the Atlantic Island Kennel at Lajes Air Force Base overseas. I am comfortable handling dogs and cats of all sizes and manners. I have experience administering oral and injections, and the care of diabetic animals. Your dogs or cats will have the comfort of an air conditioned suite about 30' from my house. Depending on their size and needs, I have various size crates they can sleep in, or you may bring your own. All dogs must be crated at my place- I keep multiple families' pets at once and this is for their safety and your peace of mind- I never allow dogs to interact without supervision. If your dog has never been crated, let me know. I am especially good at working with dogs to learn the crate is their safe place- most dogs learn within a day or two! I live on site and am a stay at home mom. Just couldn't check the 24/7 care button because I'm not always home. Outdoors, they will have 1.25 acres to explore (on le). dlso have a 36x 20' exercise area with a 6' fence for the escape artists. ;) It is dividto allow us to determine ed if your dog doesn't play well with others! there are other dogs and sheep to play with (or look at!) on premises, if your baby is comfortable. If not, I make sure their routine is kept and can let them out alone if it is better. I'm very flexible, I love animals of all kinds and encourage you to contact me if you have any questions. I do request that if you drop yoone ur dog off for one night that you pay for 2 days (day of drop off and day of pick to cover DogVacay's fee. ). If you need me to care for your dog during the daytime only, feel free to book one day only. If you have any questions at all, please contact me. I'm very flexible depending on your situation. Thank you for letting me do what I love and make a living at it. :)

***Dogs must have rabies and distemper (DAPP, DA2P, or DHLP are common) current to stay with me. Please be able to produce a record showing they are up to date if you Insta-Book or make a reservation with me! Thank you!!

***I am unable to keep cats until afAugust uly 2016. Thank you!

***Due to the recent birth of my first human-kid and my doctor-ordered restricted activity level , dogs are now being cared for and loved on by Candy Smith, my amazing friend and employee! (That's her snuggling with the adorable Boston) This only affects drop off/pick ups- please message me to schedule!

Kate was fantastic! She provided pictures and videos and daily reports about how our dogs were doing with her. She was incredibly flexible with our arrival and departure times (which were dependent on traveling we were doing). And she obviously built a great rapport with our dogs and with the other dogs she was watching. I highly recommend Kate!
Lots of playmates and very caring caretaker. Loved getting the pictures and comments every day. She played music during the storm and fireworks of the new year to help keep the dogs calm.
Nolen always has a good time at Kate's. The daily pictures and videos give me peace of mind, and it's nice to see him socializing with other dogs.
