“I'll treat your pups like my own!”

Hello, I'm Katrina! I have always had a love for animals. I believe dogs are part of the family and should be treated that way! When your pup is with me, they will get the same love and attention I'd give to my own. I currently have 2 rescues; Maia, a black lab mix and Dexter, a beagle. I am comfortable with dogs of all ages, sizes, and breeds. I love that I am able to incorporate my love of dogs into a job that I can be excited about. I can't wait to meet your pup!

I’ve been in love with dogs my whole life, and I’ve rescued quite a few. I’ve gotten to be very good at calming and distracting dogs who get a little bit nervous or unsteady with others or their surroundings. I do my best to know the moves a dog might make before they make them, along with sensing their mood in certain situations so that I’ll always be ready for anything. The most important thing is to know that both you & your best friend can always feel secure in knowing they are safe with me.

I have been a volunteer for the Lakewood Animal Shelter since 2012 and have walked and dog sat for many friends over the years. I enjoy getting to know a dog, as they all have their own unique and intelligent personalities (like people). It's a refreshing to spend time with dogs with their enthusiasm and simple outlook on life. I walk and run daily clocking anywhere from 15 to 40+ miles per week. I would enjoy having a companion for some of those miles.

“Personal care for your dog”

I am an experienced pet care giver who lives with 3 cats. I love being around all types of dogs. I have dealt with high and low energy dogs; dogs that pull and dogs that need coaxing. My goal is to give you peace of mind and your fur baby attention and extra love. I enjoy having the dog show me their favorite walk. My preference is to find a quiet tree lined street with lots of smells. I sanitize my hands before and after every walk. Time in the house is limited.
