Katie has always had a passion and love for helping animals. When she lived in the United Kingdom, she volunteered at several animal rescues. She graduated from Oxford Brookes with a Degree in Animal Behavior and Welfare. Katie has been fostering and working with dogs for the past 6 years. Over the years, she has continually been training her dogs to develop a calm atmosphere. Additionally, she trained foster dogs to make sure they are set up for success in their new homes.
In 2019, Katie apprenticed with the ‘Life changing, Dog training’ process. After completing this program, she recognized how valuable it is that dog owners are empowered with the right tools and education to ensure they have a great life with their dogs.
In 2015, Katie adopted her first dog, Peanut, from the Nebraska Humane society. She wanted to get him a friend and she adopted Kovu her second puppy from HHP in 2016. She started fostering in 2017. Almond was her first foster dog and never left.! Yes, she joined the foster fail club.
She learned quickly that Almond was a very anxious girl. She was fearful of many things, which required lots of structure and guidance from her parents. Katie did lots of research on dogs and their behavior. Additionally, she hired a professional dog trainer to help give her the necessary knowledge and tools to guide Almond through life.
The couple love to travel. Unfortunately, it was always a struggle to find affordable and reliable dog sitters that could continue with the structured guidance their pack needed. Boarding facilities were not an option for an anxious dog and they found many pet sitters to be inexperienced when dealing with behavioral issues.
After one of their trips, the idea of The Fluff House came to fruition. Katie wanted to provide a safe and structured environment for dogs that have anxiety and fear aggression. She understands that dog care can be costly and aim to be affordable to all customers a reason to do business with you.
The couple moved to Nebraska in 2014, they love's the local community and have made great friends and relationships. They love's to support local Rescues and local Small Businesses. Please contact us for any sponsorship or colaboration opportunities.
