Karen, took great care of Tucker while we were away. Always gave me updates on how he was doing each day. Would highly recommend her.

Karen was wonderful with our Bella! I would recommend her to anyone who needs a sitter. Very nice person who you can tell likes being around dogs. The constant stream of pics also confirmed that Bella was enjoying playing with the other dogs.

Wonderful experience with Karen for our little dog! She was caring and attentive and provided great feedback with pictures, comments, and questions when needed. She made us feel confident that our dog was content while we were away.

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.
