Jimmy was so well looked after by Carissa! He truly enjoyed his stay, and would not hesitate to visit again next time...

Carissa’s place has become Abby’s home away from home. She’s a little blue every time I leave Carissa and her dog Pepper
I couldn’t think of a better place for our little darling. 5 stars!

Carissa was so amazing and accommodating, as we needed someone last minute. We were gone 2 days and she kept us updated with pictures and texts. I would highly recommend her to anyone. She was so sweet and treated Porter like a part of her family. Thanks again Carissa, Porter had so much fun!

A Dog's Home Away From Home


I started working as a dog walker, petsitter and housesitter in 2006.

Originally from North Vancouver, I was blessed with the inner workings of mountain trails and spent 7 days a week hiking 5-10kms daily with groups of up to 6 dogs at a time.

What Carissa would like to know about your dog

Please let me know of any bad habits your dog may have. Ie. Not quite potty trained, not great on a leash, loves to eat shoes etc these are not necessarily a deal-breaker for a stay with me. I just like to know about any issues that may arise to avoid the situations and make sure their stay is as comfortable and happy as possible.

I DO NOT accept bully breeds and breeds black marked by home insurance companies. Ie. Doberman, Rottweiler or Pit Bulls
