Kentucky, Lexington
Introduction

I’m Kathy, the proud owner of Snaggle Foot Lexington Dog Walks and Pet Care, and a native of Lexington, where I’ve also raised my own family. I first learned about Snaggle Foot from the previous owner and saw first-hand the love and professional care provided by Snaggle Foot.

Services List

Rates: Starting at $17.00/per dog walk

Have a schedule or situation that leaves your dog home alone too long? We provide our dog walking service for a variety of clients in an assortment of situations.

For example, we’ve worked with clients who:

  • Have an energetic or young dog that needs more exercise
  • Are physically unable to walk their dog, such as after an injury or while sick
  • Work long hours and have a dog that could use a mid-day break
  • Are trying to sell their home and need someone on-call who can occupy their dog while the house is being shown

Our Snaggle Foot Pet Care Specialists are more than happy to work out a visit schedule that meets your needs. We can come by any day of the week. Most of the time, we just need a few days’ notice in order to fit you into our schedule. We know how busy things can be and we try to be as accommodating as possible.

Typically, our dog walking service is provided mid-day, when dogs need to be let out the most. Each standard dog walking visit consists of a 20-30 minute walk or trip to a nearby park. Every visit comes with a water refresh, playtime, and a treat.

Rates: Starting at $19.00/visit

While you’re traveling, let Snaggle Foot come to your home to care for your pets as an alternative to kenneling or boarding. Because we know that some pets do better without the noise and confusion of a facility. So why not let us come to your home and care for your pets where you know that they’ll be happy and comfortable!

Our most popular pets are cats and dogs, but we’ve also provided pet sitting services for other household and exotic pets such as parrots, rabbits, caged rodents, and reptiles.

A typical pet sitting visit consists of:

  • Exercise or playtime with your pets
  • Feeding, water refresh, treats
  • Specialized one-on-one attention.
  • And of course, we will always make sure your home is left safe and secure and your pets are happy and healthy.

Our service offerings are beneficial to pets and pet owners alike! For instance:

  • Pets get to stay in their own, familiar environment. Your pets experience no additional stress when you travel.
  • Your pets maintain their regular feeding and exercise schedules, and they get to sleep in the comfort of their own beds.
  • You feel safe and secure knowing that we are watching over your home while you are traveling.
  • We can bring in the mail, alternate the lights, water your plants, and take care of other home maintenance issues.

Rates: Starting at $17.00/visit

We know that often times the dogs that need the most care are those who are new puppies. We began offering a puppy because we would continually receive requests from clients whose dogs didn’t necessarily need a full walk, but just a quick break outside during the day.

This service is ideal for clients who:

  • Have just gotten a new puppy and are working on housebreaking.

Unlike our traditional dog walking service, our puppy breaks last only 15-20 minutes– just long enough to get you dog outside for a quick break, water refresh and treat included.

And just like our dog walking service, your puppy will get the special care they deserve.

Rates: Starting at $65.00/night.

Are your pets used to constant attention? We can definitely accommodate!

Our overnight sitting service allows us to “move-in” to give your pets the continual one-on-one attention that they are used to.

Inherent with the service is the peace of mind that your home is cared for and looked after by an insured professional.

This service is ideal for clients who:

  • Have just gotten a new puppy and are working on housebreaking.
  • Have a dog who is on a medication.
  • Are owners of a senior dog who may need to go outside more often.
  • Individuals who would like someone staying at their home at night while they are away.

Rates: Starting at $17.00/visit

We know that often times the pets that need the most care is those who are seniors. We began offering senior services as we would continually receive requests from clients whose pets need special attention.

This service is ideal for clients who:

  • A little arthritic, have a hard time getting around.
  • Have a pet who is on a medication.
  • Are owners of a senior dog who may be having a difficult time holding it in.

The Senior breaks last only 15-20 minutes– just long enough to insure your senior pet gets the special care they deserve.

Rates: Call for custom price.

We offer a full line of customized services. Ask us how we can accommodate your needs. That’s why we offer customized services called “TLC” Services.

Our TLC services have extra pampering built right in, including:

  • Pet Taxi Service for those time your pet has appointments during working hours. Let us take your pet to his or her appointments, without you ever having to re-arrange your busy schedule.
  • Home checks while you’re away including bringing the mail and any packages, watering plants, adjusting the lights, bringing in trash cans, and giving your home a “lived in” look.
  • Extended pet visits allowing your pet to have more one-on-one time.
  • Dog field trips and extended walks and hikes.
  • Pet medicine administration.
  • And more!

Whatever your need, let us know and we can help!

Detailed Information

Owning Snaggle Foot seemed like the perfect fit for my love of animals and soon to be “empty nest.”

Before owning Snaggle Foot, I worked as a sales rep for two major companies, was a stay at home mom for several years, and volunteered in various capacities at my children’s schools and my church. My husband and I also enjoy attending University of Kentucky football games and traveling.

I have always loved the animal companions in my life. As a child, we family had dogs, cats, and fish, plus the occasional injured bird that would be taken home to be nursed back to health. My family’s sweet poodle, Babes, endured lots of fun being dressed up in doll clothes and having his nails painted!

After graduating from college, I was able to fulfill a lifelong dream of owning horses when a friend gave me two standard bred horses, which I rode and enjoyed for several years. I also adopted cats: Tigger, Winnie and Harvey!

My family includes my husband, a son and daughter-in-law who are expecting their first child in October, as well as another son, a daughter, their miniature poodle Ellie, and three grand-dogs!

I understand that pets are family, and the value of having someone you trust be there when you can’t. My team of trained Pet Care Specialists and I are dedicated to providing the highest quality care, love and attention for your pets – loving care when you can’t be there!

Hi! I first started working for Snaggle Foot in 2017 while I was a college student at the University of Kentucky. Being a Pet Care Specialist with Snaggle Foot was the perfect job since I could work around my class schedule and get to spend time with fur babies! I grew up with two cats and eventually my family adopted a dog after lots of begging from me and my two brothers. While working for Snaggle Foot I’ve cared for dogs, cats, a turtle, a parrot, a gerbil and a leopard Gecko. The bond I’ve built with my regular Snaggle Foot furry friends is a special one and I look forward to seeing them every day!

Now I have my own two precious dogs, Marie and Toulouse, and two funny cats, Nox and Berlioz. I love getting to work with animals every day as a Snaggle Foot Pet Care Specialist and know that I am making their day better by giving them lots of love!

I can’t remember when I first found Snaggle Foot, but I’m so glad I did. It has been the best experience. I grew up having dogs and about any animal you can think of really, and it’s safe to say I love them all so much – so being able to do it as a job is incredible. I recently graduated from the University of Kentucky with a bachelors in business management. After doing so, it gave me the courage to get a puppy of my own. He has already been a blessing to me, and I’m not sure how I’ve lived so long without him. 🥰 I continue to work for Snaggle Foot because I love these pets so much and enjoy helping others take care of their beloved pets, too.
