Karen is the most amazing, loving, caring and compassionate dog sitter I have ever met! I just returned from a 2 week trip to Spain and Karen took care of my dog, Oliver. This was the longest I have ever left him and I was a bit nervous and it was so important to me that I found the right person to care for him. Karen instinctively knew how to make Oliver feel comfortable and ...

Karen is the greatest! She really loves dogs and Louie looked so happy on all the photos she sent. Very calm when I picked him up. I will definitely use Karen’s services again.

Home Away From Home

I know how difficult it can be to be away from your best friend. It’s never ideal when you have to put your pup in a kennel, you’re never really sure about how they’re doing. They give you so much love, you just want the best for them too. That’s why I’m here: to make sure that your furry friend is as happy as can be when you’re away ...

What Karen would like to know about your dog

Some things I like to learn ahead of time:
Sorry--No Pitbulls ---
I can offer Daycare on an OCCASIONAL BASIS----not long term
Would you like to schedule a meet-and-greet before the stay?
What’s your preferred method of communication?
Does your pup have any health issues that need to be tended to? For instance, dietary restrictions, medicine, or behavior triggers?
Do you have a vet nearby that you trust?
Is your dog spayed/neutered?
Does your pup like to stick to a given schedule, like regular walks in the morning and evening?
What does your pup do well around? What does your pup try to avoid?
What’s the best way to spoil your pup?
Is your dog on a flea treatment? -----

When Karen watches your pet

Now that I am retired, I do my best to maintain an active lifestyle. I love to get lots of walks, and Hank is all too happy to inspire me to get as much exercise as possible! That means that your pooch will definitely be the beneficiary of tons of walks and runs, or whatever it is that they need to thrive! There is a lovely trail behind my house that I love to go walking on, and I’m sure that your pup will just love getting out into nature and having fun out in the sun. I’m also happy to take on any couch potatoes! I have an enclosed patio with doggy door access so your pup can enjoy a little nap in the sun if need be. We’ll have a good time catching up on Netflix together!
