Karen is without a doubt our favorite choice for dog sitting in Raleigh. She goes way above and beyond every time.

When Karen watches your pet

I love to play fetch or ball with dogs. I will take them on walks in their neighborhood, the greenway and Umstead Park. I am happy to take them to the dog park to if they like to socialize with other dogs. I will groom and clean dogs as needed.
