Karen watched Henry while I was gone for the weekend and was such a lifesaver! She sent photos of Henry playing and making new dog friends, and overall a pleasure to work with!

Karen was an absolutely wonderful host. She was super nice, easy to coordinate with, and she had other doggies there to keep my little one busy while I was away. I will most certainly be working with her again!

Karen is delightful. She took good care of our shy little Havanese during our weekend away. Karen is responsible, sends updates, and is easy to communicate with. If you have a small dog, I recommend her highly.

Karen in University City

Hello!
I created this profile as an effort to "pay it forward" for others who find themselves in a bind with dog sitters. I LOVE animals and enjoy being around them. I have always had pets (dogs, cats, hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits, fish, toads, and chickens).

I work 3 miles away during the school year and have school teacher hours; I can check on your pet at lunch if necessary. There are two parks on ...

What Karen would like to know about your dog

I only dog sit small dogs due to the size of my home and my two pets. I would like to know how your dog gets along with other dogs, and the daily routine. Yorkies, poodles, shih tzus, and maltese are my most frequent visitors!
