Caren is the best dog sitter on the planet! By far Caren's pet sitting company is the best I have ever encountered! Her genuine love and adoration for animals is outstanding!!!

I'm so lucky to have found Caren Metzger to dogsit both my dogs when I'm away. She is kind, loving, fun and responsible and treats them as if theyre her own. The love and attention they receive helped them feel so comfortable with her which meant I was comfortable too. She truly has a gift and I'm so thankful to have met her.

Caren watched my three dogs over this past summer when I went away for a week. At first a was a bit skeptical considering that she has a large pack of dogs in her own family, but I decided to try it anyway since a friend of mine gave such rave reviews. First we did a meet-and-greet, which was incredibly well organized. My three got to meet her dogs in a neutral environment before going ...

Dogs are my passion and escape.

Hi!! I am a school psychologist by career but my passion is taking care of dogs. I love getting to know different breeds and watching my children nurture and play with visiting guests.. I have four of my own dogs that I rescued and for some, have worked very hard training and rehabilitating them. Teaching them how to trust and love their own canine family and humans. It can be a challenge but nothing feels ...

What Caren would like to know about your dog

I need to know if your dog is friendly with other animals and children. If he or she ever seriously bit somebody. Allergies? Preferences? Commands you use? Use of crate at night or during the day? Is your dog up to date on all vaccinations. Does your pet have comfort toys or foods? Bone aggressive or food aggressive? Finally, house broken?

When Caren watches your pet

We will go on pack walks and or individual depending on the comfort level of the animal. Long or short walk also depends on your pet.

My strengths are in training puppies and young dogs. It is not uncommon to find a puppy that stays a Week or more to go home fully housebroken!!! I am very patient and understanding plus my well trained pack of dogs are good role models.
