Carissa is awesome! She is excellent with dogs and respects the routine you have with them! She does exactly what I do for my pup when she comes to visit.

Carissa was top notch! She made us feel 100% confident and comfortable with leaving our 2 dogs in her care.

My husband and I agreed that when we need a pet sitter or walker again she will be the FIRST one we reach out to!

What Carissa would like to know about your dog
