Karen was awesome with Honey! We were scheduled to go out of town for a holiday weekend, and were thrilled to find her so close to us! She took Honey on walks, gave her treats, sent us updates, and even pictures! We felt at ease knowing she was in good hands at someone’s house instead of at a kennel. We plan to use her again!

Passionate 4 Animals-LOVE my "job"!

I am an avid animal lover - of most species. I love dogs, cats, birds, used to have hamsters/gerbils. Dogs are my favorite - and puppies are my "heart." I have spent years of my life researching larger animals such as dolphins, whales and now elephants. I believe in positive reinforcement only - and find that most dogs "take" to me even when owners expect them not to. I've loved friend's pets from a large malamute ...

What Karen would like to know about your dog

Is the dog crate trained? --doesn't have to be but in case it's necessary for a short time, would like to know if they've been exposed to this.
Is dog Neutered/Spayed !! (don't want to take ones that aren't) -- AND: is he/she up to date on all vaccinations? For boarding, may need current print-out from your vet.
How is dog usually? (quiet, happy or whiny, needy ? Does he like walks? -- or not so much? does he/she pull much on leash?
What dietary restrictions and please write out feeding schedule and any medication schedules - thx

When Karen watches your pet

I love the water - and find visiting parks and lakes with walking trails lots of fun - and fun for dogs to walk/run and exercise.
Other things about me: degrees in piano performance (classical) music - so your dogs may hear some soothing music.
I also love to read and learn - so life in my home is mostly peaceful, with background classical music if not live ;) I also love to garden on my large balcony overlooking some trees and a bubbling creek.
