Karen is Great! She takes care of your dog like it's hers. She so easy to make all the arrangements with. Josie is usually nervous when we leave her, but I think she feels right at home with Karen. So happy we found her

Kilo had a great (extended) stay with Karen and her family. He was pooped when he got home! Karen was very accommodating even when I needed to adjust my stay date. She even sent me update pictures over the course of the stay. Would highly recommend to anyone!

Come play with us!

We are an active family of 5+2: Mom, Dad, 18, 9, 7 and 2 miniature dachshunds named Charlotte and Odin.

We are a family operation. Everyone pitches in to feed and cuddle guests.

I was the neighborhood petsitter as a teenager. As an adult I am finding it impossible to find a teen willing/able to provide the same services! We use a wonderful in home boarding service for our pups during vacations (thanks ...

What Karen would like to know about your dog

I like to know the dog's basic routine so I can stick to it as much as possible. When do they eat, where do they like to sleep, how often do they go out and how many walks.
I'm comfortable with most breeds.

When Karen watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
Yes. We live in a development that is a nice mile+ loop.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
They really like their own bed, so if you have a crate, bring it! :)
If they aren't used to a crate, we set up a sleeping area so they can be comfortable and safe.

Time I'll spend with your dog
We are home and outside as much as we can. I am away from the dogs no longer than a few hours. Often if I am not here my husband or teenage son take over keeping the dog's company.
