We had a bad experience using the Rover app in the past so we were hesitant to give it another try. I’m glad we did... Karen was remarkable. I’ve never felt so comfortable having a stranger in my home. I’m glad that phase is over and that she’s no longer a stranger because I’ll be using her again! Very highly recommended, just not when I need her :)

Karen was wonderful with our little terrier. She is very skilled with dogs and other animals and I would definitely use her again!

Horse trainer w/dog-friendly hours

Hello! I am a full time farm/horse/dog/cat person. I work 6 days a week feeding and caring for 40-horses, and have always had dogs and cats in my life as well. I also have worked part-time as an at-home caregiver for the elderly, so care taking is very much a lifestyle for me. I can provide references to testify to my reliability, and have a somewhat flexible schedule to offer. I have ...

What Karen would like to know about your dog

I'm happy to know everything! How they are with other dogs and cats, and kids, as there is always a chance to encounter all of the above out on walks. Are they ok being alone or is crating a requirement. What exercise do they typically get with their owners. Do they have a favorite toy, or a treat routine?

When Karen watches your pet

I live right across from Terrywile in Danbury, and near Roger's park as well. The farm I live on is 16 acres. I generally like walking just about anywhere, from subdivisions to low-key hikes, so its pretty much open to whatever the dog prefers. I love playing fetch, I have an outdoor run with a dog house for when I am busy with chores or lessons on nicer days (usually no more than 2 hours morning or afternoon) and crates in my bedroom and living room for less-welcoming weather days. I am fine with dogs who can handle time alone without being crated, but my last dog had severe separation anxiety, and I do have a cat, so I am definitely a better-safe-than-sorry when it comes to unsupervised loose dogs!
