Karen is a wonderful dog sitter! I was thrilled with all the wonderful text messages with pictures of my babies. She made me feel at ease during our trip and I was 100% assured that they were being loved and taken care of. We even had a flight delay that kept us away an additional 4 hours so I was able to ask her to check in for another visit until we could get home ...

We used Karen for the first time for a long weekend get away and she was fantastic! Our dog is very old, so we are particular about who cares for him. She did drop-in visits and walks with him.

Available 24/7 & love walking dogs

I have had pets my whole life (over 30 years experience) and love the unconditional love they bring to my life. I treat each one as if it was my own, with love and kindness. I am responsible, very dependable, and trustworthy. I have a very flexible schedule, so I work hard to accommodate my clients as I am available weekdays, weekends, evenings, and overnights. Right now, I have two fur babies of my own ...

What Karen would like to know about your dog

I have no breed preference, though I have chosen to omit Pit Bulls from my care list. I would need to know what activity level, if the dog has any aggressive tendencies, any medical issues, and if they are good around children and other animals.

When Karen watches your pet

I love walking dogs, playing fetch, or just providing attention if that is all they desire. If there is a park nearby or walking trails, that provides lots of new sensory stimulus and surroundings to keep the dog interested and active. I take cues from the dog to provide it with everything it needs.
