Hi, nice to meet you! I'm Katie - I'm a San Francisco born animal lover and foodie currently based in the Hague. I've grown up around animals all my life, with my family owning both a cat and several dogs, and have always loved spending time with animals. My family functions have always included dogs, and they would bring so much warmth and fun to our gatherings. As I'm not currently able to own a pet myself (my apartment does not currently allow it), I'm looking for opportunities to spend time with animals and get outside in the process.
My experience includes frequently dog sitting for friends and family, and currently being godmother to my friend's cat :) My services include local dog walking, home visits, and house sitting.
: 30 minutes - 60 minutes, depending on their needs, location and your pet's comfort level. We will most likely walk for closer to an hour!
: 30 minutes, but can stay for several hours and keep your pets company. This includes basic care, play, clean-up (if applicable) and company of course! We'll send some photos/videos of our time together :)
: 10 hours overnight stay, only available if we have had a prior house visit and your pet is already familiar/comfortable with me. This includes basic care, play, clean-up (if applicable), and a pre-bedtime walk. We will discuss your pet's full daily routines, feeding needs, toys, and emergency situations.
I'm excited to connect with you and your pet, and get to know their needs and routines. Making them feel comfortable with me is my priority, as I know how stressful it can feel for both owners and their pets to be away from home.
Please reach out if you think I would be a good fit for you and your pet, I'd love to hear from you!
Katie was an absolute pleasure to have at our home - she was fantastic with our two (large) dogs, and I feel so glad to know they were well cared for in our absence. They can be a bit of a handful, but she was patient and active with them, and gave us regular, detailed updates about her stay, their activity level, and what she was doing to engage and stimulate them. She went above and beyond as a sitter, and I would highly recommend her to anyone!
Katie is a great pet sitter, super recommended! She took care of my two cats. She has a great energy and during the meet and greet she approached the cats gently as coco and d’artagnan are a bit shy.
She asked all the right questions to get to know them better. During the visit she was able to get them inside as they spend much of the day outside in the garden until I call them at night . I was surprised because they don’t get in unless me or someone they trust calls them 🤩 . So I was super happy to see that everything worked out. She sent us some lovely pictures and videos during the entire time. When we got back our cats felt totally relaxed which confirms how happy they were with her. Thanks for everything Katie.
