Who is Kat?

Hi! My name is Kat Anderson, and I am the owner and operator of Kat Walks Dogs. 

I graduated from North Dakota State University in December 2016 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Zoology. Shortly after graduation, I took an administrative assistant position, but was always thinking about a business idea I had while in college. What if I started my own pet sitting and dog walking service?

Dog walking and pet sitting have become a popular way for young adults and retirees to make extra money, and I had always thought it would be a great job. However, I always pushed the business idea to the way-side as I never felt that I was in a position where I could take the financial risk. Instead, I took a job at a local animal shelter as an Animal Care Technician, and I still work there to this day, part-time, while I am building up my business. Obviously, I decided that it was worth the risk to try, and in June 2018, I took the leap and started my business.

Kat Walks Dogs officially opened June 1st, 2018, and has been operating ever since! Kat Walks Dogs is bonded, insured, a member of Pet Sitters International, and trained in pet CPR and first aid. When Kat is not pet sitting, dog walking or working at the animal shelter she is hanging out with her boyfriend, her cat, and her dog.
