Carissa is awesome!! Rebooked her as I had another work trip. It’s so great to not worry about your pet while your gone! My girl is super strong and quite the wild child, not everyone can handle her. What a relief to have found Carissa! Definitely recommend her!

Carissa took great care of my pup! Very responsive from start to finish & would give me an update after each visit. Came at the scheduled times, was very flexible, and accommodating with any last minute date changes. Bad weather forecast had me come back a day early from my trip! Carissa was very understanding.

What Carissa would like to know about your dog

I have worked with many different types of dog breeds, so I do not have any preference towards what I am comfortable being around. Every dog is loved by me no matter how big or small!

I can promise you that your beloved fur child will be in amazing hands while you're away! I adore animals, so your dog will constantly be unconditionally loved and played with every second they are with me. Your pup and I will enjoy taking walks/runs together and playing at the doggy park. No energy level will be a problem with me since I myself am a very active person and enjoy the outdoors.
