Karen was great with our dog. Nellie did have an accident in the house, she is sorry.
Karen provides a warm secure home with fenced yard and a wonderful companion dog.

Loving Care for your Precious Pets

Let me be the one to offer loving, nurturing daytime or night time care for your beloved pet. Over 30 years experience caring for pets - cats, dogs, birds, rabbits. I have a shady fully fenced yard.

I have been a pet lover for over 50 years and would love to care for your pet in my home or yours. I have many years experience caring for pets and have volunteered at animal ...

What Karen would like to know about your dog

It is always good to know what is the dogs preferences for feeding, sleeping and activities. Does the dog like going to dog parks or walks or just hanging out at home? Is he chipped and have an ID tag? Are there any medical issues? Is the dog a runner when there is an open door. Can he/she be left alone for any length or time?

I love all breeds and sizes but I have the most experience with the herding dogs since I have raised them all my life.

When Karen watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I take walks around my neighborhood and sometimes to the park. I usually go for a mile or mile and a half walk but it all depends on what the dog prefers.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Dogs can sleep wherever they are most comfortable. Usually that's in my room in their bed or if they are small they can sleep on mine.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I plan to spend most of the afternoon and evenings with them. I have a big, shady back yard to play with them in. I love to take my doggie friends on walks around the neighborhood at least once a day. My personal attention to just ONE DOG AT A TIME, (sometimes two, depending) makes for exceptional care.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I can do a walk in the early morning and again in the evening or playtime in the yard. I love taking dogs to the dog park if you wish or rides in the car. Dogs can sleep with me or on their own preferred bed if they wish.

Extra house-sitting services
I can do anything that you would like done while you are away - watering plants inside and out, bringing in mail and newspaper, etc.
