Hello, my name is Katherine and I am a stay at home mom with a working husband and two energetic animal loving daughters. I attended California State University of Sacramento to obtain an undergraduate degree in biological science. Throughout my life I have always loved all types of animals and cared for them as well. Many different types in fact such as dogs, cats, horses, reptiles and birds. In the past I have volunteered at the Sacramento State University animal vivarium prior to moving to the Bay Area. I also have experience volunteering at "Cats about Town"; cleaning, playing, fostering and bottle feeding kittens.
Our house will be your dogs house away from home. They will have room to play and lay, on our acre lot, walking distance to parks and trails in the Palomares Hills. Adventure in all corners of the yard from the chicken coup to the wood pile. In the large open yard there are two automatic waterers. One waterer is the lick style and the other is an elevated automatic bowl. When it's time to relax and go to sleep they will come Inside the living room of the house where we have large pet beds and independent kennels If your pet prefers their own domain. Our family dogs stay in the same living room with yours. No preferential treatment here. On rainy days this is also the place to hang out and stay dry.
If you have any questions, please ask. We understand that your dog is an extension of your family and dropping him or her off with strangers is unsettling. We want to take that unsettling feeling away and let you know that we truly care for the welfare of your family member.
Please check in with me if my calendar says I am booked. Sometimes I have a puppy just for part of the day, but it still says I am booked for the whole day.
I am flexible and have the space for more than 3 dogs, so if you are in doubt feel free to message me.
I am available for early morning drop off, around 6:30 am is the earliest. The latest time for pickup is 8:00 pm, but we can discuss this further depending on the day of the week. Also the overnight rate is for a 24 hour period. If you need a morning drop off and a late pickup, I would adjust the stay to include a day rate. The day rate is $35 for a 9 our period (example 8-5).
If you have any questions feel free to ask.
