Carissa was amazing with our 1 year old toy poodle. She was very flexible and communicated frequently. We loved having near constant updates on what our little lady was up to. She seemed to be taken care of as a temporary part of Carissa's family and we would definitely use her again... Fantastic, can't say enough good things!

Carissa is fantastic! We met for a meet and greet and she was very professional and friendly. She came for the drop-in visits on time and sent me lots of pictures and videos of my kitties! She even left me detailed notes for each visit regarding how much food they ate, what they were doing, etc. I couldn’t recommend her enough!

Carissa is amazing. I have a 2 week old kitten that needs to be fed every few hours and assisted with elimination while I am at work. She went above and beyond to accommodate my needs and was very professional, sincere and trustworthy. I can't recommend her enough!

Your pup deserves a fun walk!

Hi! I have recently moved to Philly from New Jersey. Before that, I lived in California where I was the lead dog trainer at Petco since 2013. In addition to being a certified trainer with the AKC, I have also been taking care of all sorts of animals for my entire life. I love and am comfortable taking care of all breeds of dogs, cats, small animals, fish and birds. Prior to moving to PA ...

What Carissa would like to know about your dog

Do they have a preferred walking route? Are they good with other animals? Are they crate trained and/or potty trained? I would like to know as much as possible about their daily routine to help them have the best experience possible! Please note that I have two cats st home so any dogs boarded with us will need to be cat friendly :)
