House Sitter in Richmond Heights

I have now personally trained, cared for, and worked with dogs, cats, horses, rodents, and reptiles. My experience with pets now spans ALL sizes, ages, many breeds, a fair and unfortunate number of animals with physical handicaps and illnesses. I work with aggressive pets, younger pets, sick pets, new pet parents, and there is no fear of pet behaviors anymore, as well as ZERO anger toward pets when they do the "wrong thing", regardless of what it is. I absolutely love animals and I really value the time I spend with them and the things we teach each other! <3 My services include full-time one-on-one attention with pets and I offer training with and without pet parents present, but I like to clarify that I am NOT a certified trainer. I also do NOT use "force-training" methods or devices such as electric fences, shock collars, choke collars, bark collars, or anything else that I know inflicts pain or repeatedly causes discomfort universally, or after noticing expression of it. I am always flexible about doing extra walks, including some command/training practice on walks, or even doing a little speed-walking or jogging for however long the dog and I are not fatigued, unhappy, or seemingly not enjoying the behavior anymore, as well as playtime and the length of that, the type of play, and the rules for stopping play immediately or in general due to not wanting to overexert the dog, and I ALWAYS include massages, ESPECIALLY after playtime or really active walks, UNLESS the dog shows any discomfort PAST the possible initial withdrawal or shock from not being used to the interaction type, but maybe ok with it when it is better understood through baby steps forward and backward for a while. Overall, I am energetic, intelligent, and responsible out of pure love for animals, if nothing else. Feel free to ask me anything else you would like to know!

I highly recommend Katherine for any caregiving services you may need her for. I worked with Katherine for over two years. During this time she has regularly taken care of my three pets who we consider to be important members of our family. Katherine has always gone above and beyond her job description. On several occasions she has taken care of not only my pets but my home, making it easy to return home. She is patient and compassionate with everyone. During my time working with Katherine I had two family emergency's, she was very kind, understanding and flexible which allowed me to focus on what I was doing. During this time I had no doubt in my mind that my pets were in great hands. I am confident that Katie will bring her patience, compassion, kindness, understanding, flexibility and diligence to any position she holds.
