Below are just some reviews of Catherine, from real dog owners who have used their services on!

Beccie P.
Penny: Our family is so thankful to have Catherine! She is such a kind woman, and we know that whenever we leave our Penny with her she is in very good and loving hands! The pictures that Catherine always sends us show Penny getting all the cuddles she wants, I'm surprised she wants to come home with us! Thank you so much Catherine!

Maria G.
Izabella: Thank you Catherine for taking great care of Izabella. Thank you for sending the pictures and for making sure, that her needs were met. She was happy and content, I couldn't ask for anything better.

Sandra w.
Blue: Thx for taking great care of my buddy!

David M.
Kylie: Our dog is old and had never before stayed outside our home so it was certainly a challenging placement. Catherine had to deal with a number of issues but she stayed in touch with us and did her very best to make our dog feel at home. We appreciated her efforts and would gladly recommend her to others looking for a caring environment.

Denise G.
Spike: Catherine was very pleasant and I knew Spike was safe while we were away, Catherine sent me daily updates and pictures of Spike. Spike looked very comfortable on the couch in Catherine's home.

Sarah B.
Petit Loup: Thanks Catherine for providing a safe and secure environment for my small dog to play and have fun! The resident Bichon frise doggies (Denny and Dexter) are very social and politely welcomed my dog into their home. I really like the fact that there are only small and medium dogs at the day care. My dog is 14 years old and needed a daycare that provided lower energy activities where he is not getting stepped on by larger playful dogs. There is a fenced backyard for the dogs to hang out and plenty of nap time places in the living room. I received photo email updates during his stay so that I could see that my dog was relaxed and enjoying himself. My dog has been there twice for day care and I will certainly book again!

Nicole H.
Milla: Fantastic experience!
Catherine was wonderful and ensured Milla was a happy beagle.
Very accommodating and loved the updates.

Kelly S.
Amber: Catherine was great from first meeting to Amber's first stay! I will be bringing Amber back to stay with Catherine for her dogvacay!!

Remmy: Thank you so much to Catherine for taking such good care of my Remmy! It was so nice to go on vacation and know that my "baby" was in such good hands!

Stella: Again, Stella enjoyed her visit. Thank you.

Buddy: Awesome experience for my dog. Being around the other dogs seems to have been very good for him. He came home happy and content. I would definitely recommend Catherine.

Buddy: Excellent second home for buddy. 

Skippy: Catherine provided a warm and caring environment for our boy, Skippy. Frequent updates showed he was making himself quite at home. Thanks!

I came across Catherine's 5 star reviews and had to meet her. Her fabulous reviews speak for themselves. The moment I pulled in for a meet and greet with my two dogs, Catherine welcomed us into her very dog friendly backyard. The yard is large and very secure. My dogs felt right at home. Catherine is an extremely warm and caring lady. Her love of dogs is exudes throughout her entire personality. She also invited us into her home where every thing is set up perfectly so my two furry babies felt right at home. It makes leaving them so much easier. Catherine will even send photos of your dogs and little updates while you're away to keep you smiling until you reunite with your fur baby again. Catherine is one of a kind. We are very lucky to have found her! You will be too!

Maggie: I would highly recommend Catherine for anybody looking for a safe, secure, and friendly doggie vacation! Maggie looked very happy and comfortable at Catherine's, and I was glad to leave her in capable hands while I was away.

Melissa S.
Oliver: Very good experience, my puppy was well taken care of!

Faye P.
Max: Catherine was very easy to communicate with and very prompt with her messages. It was my first time ever booking this type of service. We met for an initial meet and greet. I liked that all the dogs were small breeds. She is located right off the highway 401 which is convenient. My dog Max stayed at Catherine's for 3 nights. She sent us daily messages and pictures. Max seemed to have a great time! I would definitely use this service again.

Anna T.
Drake: It was our first time using DogVacay and we had a great experience with Catherine. Our dog had a great time and she sent us constant picture and status updates which was very nice and made us feel happy that he was well taken care of. Would definitely book with Catherine again!

Tiffany B.
Mocca: Catherine was great! Mocca was happy when we picked him up and I loved the pics she sent while we were out of town so we could see how he was doing. We will definitely be bringing our dog back!

Teresa N.
Teddy and LuLu: Catherine is great she is like a dog whisperer all the dogs seem to really like her. I love she only takes small dogs and mine felt very comfortable there. She put medicine in my dogs ears and got rid of the infection. She even bathed them before we picked them up, they were spoiled even with other dogs there. She had them for 17 days.

Anne F.
Oscar and Myer: We were very thankful that Catherine had our dogs Oscar and Myer for the day. We came in from NB and needed a sitter for one day and Catherine graciously accepted our request. They were treated great and her back yard is a doggie heaven, lots of trees and area to roam. Thank you Catherine, we really appreciate your wonderful care of our weiner dogs :)

Maria G.
Izabella: Nice, quiet backyard, with plenty of shade. adequate size backyard for the dogs to play, sniff, or just relax.
Catherine is very nice, and well organized. My dog, female, adapted pretty well, I think. She was there only for a day, for now. Planning my future time away, I will definitely consider Catherine for caretaker for my doggy.

First time Buddy went to a sitter and I must admit I was worry but Catherine was great. Buddy had a great time and he does everything opposite of what I told her. It was indeed a great surprise. I am extremely very happy with her service and had tell my friends about her. I was very thankful that she can take him with such short notice too. Keep up the great service. All thumbs up!

Roxy and Hurley: What wonderful Pet Sitter we have found !!! I have nothing but the highest recommendation for Catherine and her family. We now would go nowhere else !!!! A++++  

Big Rig and Crystal: Catherine took care of my two energetic Jack Russell, they have fun running around the big back yard and playing with other dogs. When we drop them off, I could tell that they were very happy bonding with Catherine and her own dogs. She took some pictures during the week they stay for us to see how they are doing and also we could communicate... if we wanted to keep an update of the dogs. Our experience with Catherine has been excellent! Next time when we take another family vacation I know where I can leave my pets...

Radar: Radar had a wonderful time with Catherine (in fact I think he came home reluctantly :) ) He will definitely be staying there again. He made himself right at home and Catherine was great. Thank you everyone.

Oscar: Oscar had really good stays with Catherine. He even sat on her lap for a while on his first day. Shocked the hell out of momma. Yay Catherine!

I felt so comfortable knowing he was happy!

Bosley: So glad we found this site (and Catherine). This was perfect for our little old dog - company while we were away, other little pooches to hang with and a warm house to sleep in. Will use again for sure! Thanks Catherine.

Korra: Catherine was a phenomenal sitter for our pup! She has two little dogs of her own and fosters a dog friendly home. Our pup had separation anxiety, but to our surprise she loved staying with her, (she may be a dog whisperer of some sort). Any dogs on vacay are watched 24/7 and given all the attention they need. They have a large backyard that any dog would love to play in and can roam freely in the home. She sends photo updates every day on how your pup is doing and they're always happy. She is really flexible and dependable and I would highly recommend her to anyone that needs an expert to sit their dog.

Maximo and Bentley: The boys had a great vacation!! We received daily emails with pictures which was a great treat. They were exhausted when they got home from all the playing and interaction. I will not hesitate to leave my dogs here again!! I know they are in great loving hands and getting lots of attention. Thank you so much for taking great care of our boys!!

Suzie: I met Catherine thru a women's group we both attended in Oshawa. Her ability to care for dogs is excellent, very thoughtful and she puts the dog's safety as her top priority - which is very important to me. I have had Catherine take care of my little dog several times. Our little Suzie is well cared for, loved and spoiled by Catherine. I receive daily updates while I was gone, and she is so pleasant to deal with. Suzie has a ton of fun on those weekends. When Suzie comes home, she is all tuckered out. I can honestly say I never have a worry at all while I am away.

I've known Catherine for just over 10 years. As a fellow dog lover, I appreciate the love and care she shows for her own dogs, past and present. I would thoroughly recommend her services to anyone. Any dog in her care is shown huge amounts of love and affection, along with receiving plenty of exercise. She would treat any dog as if it were a member of her own family.

Linda T.
Lia and Luigi: I met Catherine on an internet dog lovers forum. After meeting Catherine in person, I learned first hand that her ability to care for dogs is ideal - as she is kind, compassionate and alert to the needs of her clients, the dogs.
I would recommend Catherine, as I have used her service to care for my dogs as I went out of town for a weekend, and was very pleased with our experience. I was able to keep contact with her and my dogs via the internet with updated messages and pictures. I was aware that they were fine, which was a great stress reliever for me as they had never been away over night before.
As an experienced dog owner Catherine was able to tune into my dogs needs to make sure they were comfortable and happy. Catherine’s service offers a large fenced backyard to investigate and play in. Whenever visiting my dogs always feel welcome and content to be there, and they love her backyard!
