We were delighted with Kara and will definitely call her again! She was prompt, took Ruth on nice long walks, and provided great updates so we knew our fur baby was in good hands. I highly recommend Kara!

Kara took great care of my 3 cats while I was away--checking in on them daily and taking care of all their food, water, and litterbox needs. I would give Kara another 5 stars for communication--I really appreciated all the updates and photos I received!

Always takes care of my dog Laverne and treats her well. Laverne is always happy when Kara comes to take care of her. Kara always makes sure that your pet is taken care of and refills anything that your pet may need while you’re away.

I volunteered at the Richmond SPCA in high school, regularly dog sit for my parents' neighbors in Richmond, and have experiences with all kinds of pets. Former clients include a clever Westie puppy, an energetic sheepdog, kittens, fish, senior Labradors, recently-adopted shelter dogs...the whole gamut.

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? 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?
