Hello Pet Owners, I am aware of the huge need to find that special person to care for your pets while you are away on vacation, business trips, or work long hours for your job.  Whether you have a special needs pet, an active dog, farm life, or simply don't believe in boarding, I am available to help you out in your time of need. My name is Kat and I am the proud owner and pet sitter of Kat and Dogs Ohio! Established in August 2013, Kat and Dogs Ohio is located in Willoughby, Ohio, and has one goal in mind: treating your pets like family.  I am sure a few of you might cringe at leaving your beloved family member at a boarding facility, but your worries are over!!  With this in mind, your pets will be able to stay in the comfort of their own home while I will stop in to visit with them!  If you are interested in what I have to offer or for more information, please contact me!! Thank you for your time, and I look forward to meeting you and your four-legged family members!

Please make your reservations today.  I can be reached at 440-313-7469 or katanddogsohio@gmail.com!

About. Experience. Education

I graduated in 2008 from Columbus State Community College with an associates degree in veterinary technology and I  have been a pet sitter since 2009.  I am also certified in pet CPR & First Aid through PetTech!!!

In September 2015, Jessica "Jess", joined Kat and Dogs Ohio!!  Before relocating to Willoughby, Jess worked at Pilot Dogs in Columbus Ohio, a large kennel that houses future seeing eye dogs!!  She was also a pet sitter in Stow, Ohio,  worked  in several boarding kennels, and is a LPN.  With her experience, knowledge, and love of animals big and small, rest assured that your babies are in safe hands!!

MY Extended Furry Family

In 2012, my husband and I moved to Willoughby OH along with our crew of pets.  Gracie, a twelve year old German Shepard mix,  is the alpha of the pack and is still active in her age!  Sprinkles, a white terrier mix, was hit by a car at three months of age, and it was later discovered that she was born deaf.  After surgery to repair her left, rear leg, I fostered and later adopted her!! During her recovery, Sprinkles started to mimic Gracie, and within two weeks she was potty trained and knew basic commands!!  Clancy, a red/white rat terrier, had some aggressive issues when I adopted him, and with time has learned that not everyone will hurt him.  Conner, a black Australian Kelpie mix, came with the urge to herd the cats, and with time, has learned that he would much rather be loved by them!  As you can tell I love caring for pets of all shapes, sizes, and difficulty.

A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours. Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things-a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty. - John Grogan, Marley and Me.
