Hero and Vida had a wonderful time at Karen’s. Karen was absolutely wonderful and put our minds at ease by sending us lots of photos and updates. We will definitely be using her services again!

Karen was absolutely great! She was well prepared to handle my dogs' special needs and she was so caring and loving towards them. My pups will definitely be back the next time I need a sitter.

Karen took great care of our kiddos! She’d be our go-to person, if she lived closer to us.

What Karen would like to know about your dog
