Karen is the best. Won’t leave my dog with anyone else. She is caring, attention to detail (my dog’s schedule isn’t easy), and genuinely likes her charge.

It was a seemless drop off/picked up.

Karen and her husband took care of Rosie and Archer for 4 days while we were out of town. They sent lots of pictures so we could see how our fur babies were doing. The backyard was great for Archer who is very active! Rosie is more chill but she seemed happy too. Thanks for taking care of them!

Doolittle's Apprentice -

Pets are family and it can be nerve wracking to find the perfect sitter so that you can truly enjoy your vacation/focus on your work trip. We find ourselves without our own for the first time in nearly 30 years, and look forward to the joy your pet will bring to our home. I promise to bring to your family the same level of trust that I expect of those that watched my furkids ...

When karen watches your pet

Husband will sacrifice socks for tug of war
If your dog is a swimmer, we can go for a frolic off the back yard.
We are near Clam Bayou, Clymer Park and Wood Ibis Park for nature walks, mornings and evenings. Mid day is yard time so your dogs feet dont get burned on the pavement.
