Karen house and dog sat for us over the holiday. Our dog, Calvin, is timid and anxious, and Karen was able to get him to warm up (as much as he does). She sent detailed updates every evening, and they took nice long walks. It was comforting to know that someone was in our home and keeping our boy company. We would definitely recommend Karen, and Calvin would love to walk and hang with her ...

Karen did a great job! My dog Bodhi was groomed, happy and calm. My house was neat and clean. It was easy to enjoy my vacation knowing he was well taken care of. I will definitely use her again and I highly recommend her.

We have had Karen stay a night with our dog Sagan, as well as several mid day walks, and everything has been great! From the beginning, Karen communicated very well with us, and I felt like she really listened to our specific concerns regarding his behavior, etc. Sagan is a very strong pittie, and although he's very friendly, he can be difficult to handle sometimes, but he's been doing great with Karen!

Dog Lover Who Loves to Walk!

- Medical background and training- with humans- although having dogs in my life has made me a much better healthcare provider. As a former owner of a special needs dog, I understand the need to have someone watch over them while I was away- someone that I could trust to handle special medical issues. I also have significant experience with special diets and behavioral issues.
- Experience with basic positive-reinforcement training- just let me know what skills ...

What Karen would like to know about your dog

Please let me know if your dog has specific dietary needs or behavioral issues (e.g. grain-free diet, leash aggression, reactive to other dogs, etc)
I love pit bulls :)

When Karen watches your pet

Lots of play time is important. Although, I tend to avoid dog parks for play time unless the owner specifically requests that we go there. Expect regular walks and activities that encourage positive reinforcement.
