Kara did an excellent job taking care of our mini zoo. She kept us updated on everyone, and even got to pet our elusive kitty. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a pet sitter. We definitely felt much better knowing our pets were in such good hands.

Kara did a great job caring for my dog Annabelle while I was away. She made the both of us feel comfortable. My dog has aggression issues with other animals and Kara was a pro about handling the interaction between Annabelle and own kitties at home. I received daily photo updates which I appreciated. Highly recommend her to care for your fur babies! I hope to work with her again. :)

I love dogs and the outdoors!

As a fellow animal lover and pet owner, I understand how important it is to know that your babies are in good hands while you are busy and away. I have 15+ years experience as a cat and dog owner, including training (i.e. potty training and basic commands like sit, stay, down, speak, paw, heel etc), basic care including feeding, watering, exercise, and play, giving medications in both pill and liquid forms, and basic ...

What Kara would like to know about your dog

I would need to know if your dog has a history of aggression and/or biting. Safety for your dog as well as myself is of utmost importance. This wouldn't necessarily mean I would not be willing to walk or care for your dog, but communication and knowledge of your dog's needs are essential. If this situation should arise, I am more happy to have a discussion about it. I have more experience with medium and large breed dogs than small breed dogs. I have personally owned an English Pointer and 4 Rottweilers. I shared a home with a friend who owned a Black Labrador and a Flat Coated Retriever and I often helped care for them. I also lived in a home that had a Sheltie that I would care for occasionally. In general, I do prefer larger breed dogs, but am not against caring for small breed dogs. If your pet will be staying in my home, I will also need to know that your dog will be ok with my 3 cats. Dogs staying in my home will need to be in a crate or kennel while I am not here.
