Karen is so sweet and loves our dog. I just think my dog is more territorial over certain parts of the house (ie the couch) then I imagined and she brought her dog so that didn’t go as well as hoped. Luckily she figured out a solution to keep them both in the house safe and sound and happy for 10 days!

We loved Karen! You can tell she is just a natural with dogs. I left our dog knowing he was in amazing hands. She is an amazing communicator and just so trustworthy and friendly and filled with so much joy and excitment. Though I haven’t met her dog, Lolly, I knew she’d be good for our hyper pup. It’s always great for a dog to have a buddy. It sounded like they ...

Karen took care of my dog for up to two weeks at a time, for over 6 years, through thick and thin. She was always completely trustworthy, responsible and punctual - just wonderful. In fact, over the last 15 years, using many different sitters, Karen was been the only dog professional that I completely trusted. I can't recommend her (and her lovely dog Lolly, so sweet so another big plus for dog happiness) enough! Great person ...

Flexible Schedule, Love Walking!

I’m Karen. I’ve been a dog lover since I was seven years old. I’m the girl who will stop and coo at all the pups I meet.

I had my own dog walking and pet sitting business for three years called Dog Rambles. I also used to take care of my friend’s dog, Tula, for weeks at a time. My sweet lab, Lolly, was great friends with Tula. I also took ...

When Karen watches your pet

When I meet a new pooch, I follow their lead. If they jump in my lap, I immediately hold them and caress them. If they are more wary, I give them their space. I always speak to dogs in an affectionate tone so they get used to me.

I work part-time, but I’m home a lot, so your dog will get lots of time with Lolly and me. Lolly comes with me when I pet sit. She’s the calmest, most easy-going pooch. I know your dog will love her! I’m older and will be very conscientious about keeping your home clean. It will feel like home when you return. Most of all, I want to love on your pet and make sure they are safe. All pups should be treated with care and respect.
