Karen is a woman who REALLY loves dogs, and imparts her love to our two little ones! I wouldn't go to anyone else in the world. Her home is theirs, and they are VERY happy there. I enjoy the pictures she sends too...when we are far away.

She really alleviates our anxiety when we are not there, and we very much appreciate her.

Bark & Play-Gainesville

I have retired from the medical field last year and now have plenty of time to pursue my real passion: Pets. I have owned and cared for dogs and cats for over 30 years. My home is in an ideal area for long walks , I have a sunny deck for lounging and a dedicated playroom with outdoor access. A typical day at Bark & Play will include long walks and lots of attention.
