About Katherine

Hello I’m Kat and I love to look after and help owners with their pets

whether it be taking them for a walk, training puppies/dogs or checking in on pets that need to be fed or given attention while their owners are not at home.

I'm an experienced and responsible dog walker and sitter who will go to great lengths to accommodate each pet's needs individually.

I'm aware that every pet has their own comfort zone when it comes to handling, and their own requirements in relation to care and feeding. Please feel free to tell me about your pet's schedule. We will be going out for walks and/or runs, playing fetch, being sociable with other pets or just chilling out together for cuddles and down time. Walks will be at least a 45min outing and pet visits in the owner's home include feeding, playing and the option of a local walk.

Since I have my own dog, a five year old Puggle named Coco, growing up with pets (dogs and rabbit) and dog walking many different dogs over a period of 18 months, I have lots of experience with what it takes to look after someone else's pet; treating them with care and consideration. I take this job seriously as I know what it is like to have my own pet who is part of the family and how I'd feel leaving them in the hands of someone else.

My availabilities are M-F 7.30am-4.30pm for dog walking and Mon-Sun at agreed times for dog visits.

I look forward to meeting you and your pet!

Katherine and Danny are amazing. Sia loves human attention and she definitely got it. I was updated with photos and videos. And I’m very happy to say that I’ve found a reliable person I can leave my precious baby with in the future.

Kat has been absolutely wonderful looking after our puppy Leo. She's been so accommodating and thoughtful, super easy to deal with, reliable and very friendly. Leo has a great time with her and she's helping us train him. Thanks Kat, it's made a big difference knowing someone can come during the day to look after Leo.
