We are so lucky to have found Karen. She loves our dogs like they are her own, keeps us updated on how they are doing. I feel such peace of mind leaving them with her. I could not be happier with the care she gives them. ❤️❤️❤️

Karen did an amazing job watching our two girls while we were gone! She sent us lots of updates with pictures. The dogs were happy and healthy when we got home and our house was exactly like we left it. We will definitely book with Karen again!

Karen gave us total peace of mind while we were out of town for 11 days. She not only watched our goldendoodle Avery, but she also looked after our home. We were nervous about having a total stranger live in our home, but after meeting with Karen and getting to know her and seeing how much she loved dogs we decided to give her a chance. She did not disappoint. During our time away, Karen ...

Responsible, Experienced, & Loving

Hi! I adore dogs - they have a special place in my heart. I had my very special fur baby for 16 years before he passed away in 2014, and he was spoiled rotten, and then another beautiful dog, Boo, stole my heart in 2015 and I adopted her (you can view her profile below), Boo is gentle, sweet, loves dogs, and she wags her whole body in joy.

I would love to spoil your precious ...

What Karen would like to know about your dog

I cannot take super aggressive dogs into my home since I have to put the safety of my dog first. My dog is sometimes very scared of "little yipper" dogs (cutie pies that are tiny but have a super loud and aggressive bark). So we'll have to see how they get along in a meet and greet-- but I want to give a fair head's up that our home may not be the best match.

When Karen watches your pet

In the summer we'll go to the farmer's markets, and maybe walk along the St. Croix River. In the winters, we'll take short walks near home, play indoors, and most of all... any time of year... LOTS of cuddles and conversations.
