Katie was awesome! I know my dog was well taken care of. I love the fact that Katie kept me so well updated and sent pictures of the whole experience! Would recommend! – Cortney R.

Katie is great. Very attentive, reliable and helpful. She comforted my 2 kitty cats while I was away last Summer for 10 days. They were well cared for and the transition back home to them was as if I never left. She updated me frequently and I’m so glad I hired her…I will again if I have the need… I recommend her. – Trish M.

I have been using Katie’s services for 5 months now and am so happy. She walks my dog 3 days a week for 30 minutes at a time and always takes very good care of my pup. Katie sends me pictures from each walk and gives me updates while I am at work. I feel that my pup is safe and being well taken care of when she comes to take him out. I would highly recommend Katie as she is punctual, reliable, and friendly! – Laura P.

I knew when I met Katie that I would be able to trust her, not only with my dog Rupert but with my home. I was gone for a week at Christmas, and she sent me pictures and messages letting me know how she and Rupert were doing. It allowed me to enjoy my time away with family, knowing that my “four legged” family was being loved and cared for. My dog is older and could not travel with me, and had not been left with a stranger before. Katie took the time for a meet & greet ahead of time and took notes on Rupert’s routine and health. Everything worked out great. Thank you Katie!!!! – Jaynie C.

I highly recommend Sonoma County Playful Pets. Katie took such wonderful care of my dog for two weeks. He felt very comfortable and happy around her which put me at ease while away. Daily updates and pics of my dog really made me smile too. I look forward to hiring Katie again. – Cathy P.

Katie was great! Not only was she able to get us in very last minute, but I was very impressed with her service. She sent photos of our dogs playing and relaxing with her. I would definitely recommend Katie and will be using her again in the future! – Jaclyn C.

We love Katie! She is so great with our pups and always sends lots of wonderful photos. – Natalie O

Katie was great, and our miniature poodle loved her! – Michael A.

Katie is reliable and has a warm positive energy. She took meticulous notes when we met and made friends with our cat (who usually takes time to warm up to new people) by the second visit. She sent me text messages with photos each time she was there. I highly recommend her services. -Nalini R.

Katie did a fantastic job taking care of our kitties while we were away. She was in constant communication with us and even sent pictures of our kitties from her visits. She has a natural rapport with animals and it can be noticed when she comes to meet them at her initial visit. We will definitely use Katie again in the future for our pet care needs. – Kimberly L.

Katie has pet sat for our two dogs and cat many times while my husband and I have gone on vacation. I’m always anxious to leave my dog because she has seizures on a regular basis and always needs her medication at a specific time, both in the morning and at night and Katie always made a point of arriving on time to feed her and give her meds.She was in constant contact with us so we never worried about our pets. We will continue to use her services! – Susan H.

Katie was on time for the meet and greet and a pleasure to talk to. The dogs loved her. When we returned home the dogs were mellow due to the 1 hour play date with Katie! – Lori S.

My dog and I are so thankful we met Katie! Having a very shy fur-baby, I was nervous to have to find a sitter for an upcoming vacation trip I had planned. A friend referred me to Katie and at first sight, we were immediately at ease. Katie is very warm, compassionate, and patient; it seemed that my dog Abbott was immediately bonded. She really personalized my pet sitting experience sending me photos & updates of their daily dog walks and other adventures. She treated him like he was her own and that is all I could have asked for while I was away. I am very grateful to have found Katie and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a pet sitter. – Michelle M.

 I have been using playful pets since November. Katie is my walker for my two labs Banshee and Stevie Ray. I had never used this type of service before and was nervous about it. Katie and I talked on the phone and then she met my babies. They adored her immediately. She was so loving and wonderful with them that I set her up 3-4 times a week. I have even called her in emergency same day and she comes. They love her and I love her for being so sweet and caring with them. We are leaving the area and I feel like I am leaving a family member behind. Thank you Katie. We will miss you – Susan K.

It isn’t easy allowing someone you don’t know in to your home and to trust them to feed your animals. We have had the most exceptional experience with Katie. She has unbelievable availability, has helped us on short notice, needs very little instructions and is very reliable. We hired her based on our interview and we have never been let down.  Our three dogs all love her, one is blind and one has separation anxiety. Katie has helped with medication and even cleaned up when our dog tore up papers and dragged wood out of the fireplace. She offers services like walks and when we got chickens, she took on feeding them, checking the egg boxes and making sure the flock was safe. She sends photos of their visits which we started because at first I didn’t know her and now I just like seeing them on walks or being happy. When we get home, they never act like we have been gone a long time. – Kelly A.

Katie is by far the best dog walker I have ever used for Lenny. At one time I was a dog walker and understand what it takes to provide excellent service. Katie goes above and beyond. She also sends me photos of their walks together, its a highlight of my day. She is kind thoughtful and uber responsible. I would recommend her to anyone. – Katie H.

 Katie is a total rockstar! I have a very shy dog that does not take to many people and Katie is always so patient with him- I highly recommend her for any service when it comes to your animals/ I feel completely at ease whenever I know my dogs are in her care! She’s the best! – Jenna S.
I hired Katie to visit my dog and cat twice daily while I was away on vacation. During her visits Katie walked my dog, fed both pets, cleaned out the cat’s litter box, spent time playing with/petting/cuddling the animals. I felt fully comfortable leaving my animals in her care. She texted me regular updates with pictures of her spending time with my pets, and I could tell that my animals warmed to her quickly. My dog in particular is usually very slow-to-warm with new people, but Katie had the magic touch, both with her and with my cat. Katie is reliable, warm and friendly, and very professional. I would definitely hire her again. – Alyssa C.
