Karen loves dogs and it shows in her pet sitting attentiveness. Our cavalier spent a week with Karen and her dog, Jake, enjoying multiple daily walks and a happy, predictable home life. Additionally, Karen sent me daily updates with pictures about our dog, Rhett. He could not have been in better hands which provided such a relief for our family. We heartily recommend Karen as an outstanding pet sitter!

What Karen would like to know about your dog

My HOA does not allow aggressive breeds and no Pugs,Bulldogs or any Pit mixes.I do live on the 2nd floor so your dog will need to be able to climb a flight of stairs. Please no dogs under 2 yrs old or over 40lbs .All dogs MUST be potty trained( NO PEE PADS) AND must be on current FLEA/TICK,&HEARTWORM medicine. I require a meet-n-greet with all new dogs/owners before I will accept a reservation.
