This is the first time we have left Rosie since her real momma, Lola, passed away. Rosie had been struggling with separation anxiety and we were concerned that it was too soon to leave her. Karen was with Rose 24/7, she took her everywhere and loved her up like we do. No need to worry, Rosie did great! We highly recommend Karen to care for your family pets.

Our little Rosie is in love with Karen, she thinks Karen is her other mom. We were gone for 2 weeks and didn’t worry one bit that Rosie would have a difficult time missing us. Karen takes her everywhere, let’s her sleep with her, and loves her up, just like we do. Karen has become part of our family, and we can’t say enough nice things about her.

We are so lucky that we found Karen to watch our dog, Camden. We have now used Karen on multiple occasions. The first few times we used her, she stayed in our condo as our puppy was only a few months old. She was very attentive to all the details we provided about our dog's care and when we returned, we could tell Camden had been well taken care of!

The next few times, we ...

Home Full-Time - Love Dogs

Dogs are my greatest passion in life--and that’s no exaggeration. I’ve owned dogs for a very long time and appreciate their unique personalities and the joy they bring to any situation. I grew up with a little Chihuahua named Louie and helped raise many puppies over the years. I mean, is there anything cuter or cuddlier than puppies? Nurturing them into adulthood is such a rewarding experience, and being a caretaker of different ...

What Karen would like to know about your dog

I think it’s important to meet dogs in their own environment and for me to get acquainted with their space and habits, not the other way around. After we meet, then we can visit my place to make sure they are comfortable and happy. Your dog’s well-being is my main priority and I’ll adapt my services to meet their needs. I’d want to know everything there is to know about your pup––their diet, habits, any level of aggressiveness, energy level, training, known commands, separation anxiety, barking, health issues, comfort with other dogs and animals in general, eating habits and preferences, and your furniture policy. I will keep their routine intact. Any and all insight will help me offer your dog the best care possible. I believe in and value open communication and transparency, so I will send you regular updates by phone (text, calls, videos, photos) to ease your mind. Whatever I can do to help alleviate any stress, please don’t hesitate to ask questions or request information from me!

When Karen watches your pet

We will go for at least one long walk a day, in addition to regular outings. When it’s warm, we can relax on my deck or play fetch on the grass. If your dog enjoys getting brushed, I’d be happy to do it! I enjoy being outdoors, so we’ll surely visit the lake or nearby dog parks often. I love playing with our furry friends, especially throwing the frisbee and tennis balls. After some hearty exercise, nothing would make me happier than to cuddle up with your dog on the couch watching TV or reading a good book. I really miss the snuggles more than anything else.
