Karen was a great walker for Lilly during the day. She sent detailed updates and photos and I felt confident that Lilly had a great time with her. Would recommend Karen and will definitely use her services again!

Having known Karen for 30 + year I believe she was born with a level of caring, compassion, and empathy that we long to see in all others. Not just an animal/dog lover...she is an advocate for their well being and safety. This should be a good " fit " for Karen I would think.

Luxury pet care = peace of mind

Hello !
Thank you for considering me to care for your pet while you're away. The love I have for animals is something that just comes naturally to me. I am a caring responsible person who takes the trust of my clients seriously. I've cared for pets all of my adult life . Animals I've cared for include dogs, cats, birds, fish, turtles, frogs, rabbits, hamsters & chickens ! I cant imagine my life without a pet. We ...

What Karen would like to know about your dog

Prior to caring for your pet I will talk & or meet with you and your pet to discuss your pets needs, your expectations, etc. All clients ( e.g. people and pets) are cared for on an individual basis based on individual needs. You can be rest assured that I am committed to providing your pet with quality care. So, if you're located in my area and your considering me to care for your pet(s) please let me know as soon as possible. Also, as an added benefit I can add to the security and care of your home during visits while caring for your pet I can turn your lights on/off take in the mail, take in empty garbage cans from the curb and water plants for you too.

When Karen watches your pet

Your pets will be happy when I come to visit while you're away. Not only will I give them love and attention but, I can give them a treat and/or give them fresh water, take them for walks, play with them to be sure they get exercise while you're out. The number of visits is typically one to two 30mins visits per day but, it may be more or less depending individual need and on other factors.
