Kara was great, professional, would definitely use her again. Her communication was timely and notified me of a possible issue in my home when she picked up my pup for walks.

Kara was excellent. She sent us frequent pictures and was very kind with our (somewhat) difficult dogs. Ok, one is just plain difficult. We would gladly use her again. She stayed in our home for six nights, left the house in great shape, and the dogs were in good shape when we got home.

When Kara watches your pet

I like to find fun parks, large outdoor areas, bike paths or dog parks. We live in German Village and are at Schiller Park almost every day. At home we play enrichment games to keep their minds working such as find the toy or hide the treat in the Kong. We also enjoy lots of good old fashion omg snuggling!
