Karen is the best dog sitter I have ever used for my 2 year old dog Stax.

She recently watched my dog for close to two weeks while I was out of the country. She responded very quickly to any of my messages checking up on Stax despite the time difference. She provided plenty of pictures and updates to me regarding Stax. She has a warm and friendly demeanor and I call tell that Stax ...

Friendly Dog Lover near BK Museum

I'm Karen, and I'm both a dog lover and a cat lover in Prospect Heights. I absolutely love playing with, snuggling and communicating with dogs and I'm excited to meet your pup. I'm also 2 blocks from Crown Heights Animal Hospital should anything happen to your little (or big) one. I have a tiny cat of my own, so please take into consideration if your dog likes to eat them.

What Karen would like to know about your dog

Number one: Does your dog get along with cats? If you don't know and we've made arrangements that's fine, but if you know in advance that your dog wants to play with cats like chew toys, please find another sitter. I can always keep the fuzzies separate, but it might limit both of their ability to move through my apartment.

When Karen watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I'm surrounded by parks. I can take your dog to Dr. Ronald McNair park, walks along the Botanic Garden's border, Mount Prospect Park, Prospect Park, around Grand Army Plaza. I don't know if they actually care, but I like to bring dogs on different walks so that they can smell all the new smells. If your dog needs to run, let me know. I can run with them or do some off-lease tennis ball flinging (if that's an option for them).

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
You're dog is welcome to sleep in the bed with me. Otherwise they can sleep on a cushion of their own. It's really the dog's (or owner's) preference.

Time I'll spend with your dog
On Mondays and Tuesdays, I work a 9-5 shift, but I often wake up and exercise in the park before work, and come home after and make dinner. Other days, I look forward to making as much puppy-time as possible, and don't plan on being away more than 8 hours in one go.
