About Karen's Home

When Karen watches your pet

I have a large fully fenced backyard for running and playing fetch. In the summer there is a doggie wading pool available as well as an above ground swimming pool for the water loving dogs! Doggie pool floats are also available! I live in a low traffic neighborhood for daily walks and there is a nature trail nearby for longer walks/hikes.
