Kara was great to work with! She was willing to meet up to get house keys, brought in packages without us asking, and kept our cat happy and healthy.

What Kara would like to know about your dog

No breed or size preferences! Just let me know what your dog likes and needs. Do they enjoy socializing with other dogs? What training methods are you currently using? How often do they take potty breaks? What are your furniture no-no's? Are there "triggers" that I should be aware of? Does your pup have any favorite toys? Are they on any medications?

When Kara watches your pet

Willing to walk dogs wherever, in all weather, and at any time of day! I love to play fetch, go for long strolls, practice "sit" skills, watch TV, play tug of war, or just chill at home... I'm down for anything your dog enjoys. Happy to implement whichever training method(s) you're currently using and do my part to encourage good behavior.
