Karen was fantastic! I had never left Zoe, my terrier mix, and I was very apprehensive. No need for worry-- Zoe was very happy at Karen's and received excellent care. Karen followed all of my recommendations for Zoe, and in addition, she was loving and caring and sent me photos of Zoe cuddled up to her on the couch. I highly recommend Karen for dog care! I now have peace of mind about leaving Zoe ...

Karen was great with our dog, Kaydee. Karen is definitely an animal lover and played fetch endlessly-Kaydee's favorite game. Karen was attentive to Kaydee's needs and communicated promptly with us any time I asked a question. I would definitely recommend Karen and use her again. I am glad my pup made a new friend!

Amazingly dependable, helpful and great with all pets. My dog who stayed with Karen for close to a week did not want to come home! Also terrific for walking during the day and great communication.
