Karen is fantastic! Our dog stayed with Karen for a week. We received multiple pictures per day, and it was clear that he was having a great time. Ollie likes other dogs, but has always been a little confused about how to play with them. By the time we got back, he was actually playing with one of the other pups! What a wonderful surprise. We'll definitely book with Karen again.

Karen is absolutely wonderful- we cannot say enough positive things. She has watched our dog many times, and we always get pictures and updates over our time away. She has been flexible with us, and is always very accommodating. She is our go-to dog boarder in the area!

We are so grateful to Karen for taking amazing care of our dog Max while we were away. She sent us pictures and stayed in contact with us throughout his stay so we were able to see what a great time he was having! He went on long walks and got to play with her pups as well as the other dogs she was watching. She truly treated him like one of her own. We ...

Home Full Time on a Mini Horse Farm

I'm a animal-obsessed horse-girl who works from home and loves being surrounded by animals! We have a small (no pun in tended!) Miniature Horse Farm with 8 Miniature Horses currently and one "rescue" large pony that was headed to the slaughter house when we saved him. We have three spoiled Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and one VERY large Guardian Dog that lives with our little horses (and will be separate from any of our "guest" ...

What Karen would like to know about your dog

Of course Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are my first love but over the years we’ve had many different breeds of dogs that became family to us (a Black Lab, Jack Russell Terrier and an amazing Greyhound!) my fav Rover breed so far is the Shiba Inu! Our visting Rover dogs get lots of interaction. Dogs that are very well house broken get the run of the house and pups that need a little more training can be penned in our kitchen and taken out every hour.
Dogs are never fed together & only dogs that get along extremely well are allowed to free play together. We have a zillion (or says my husband!) dog toys, balls and dog beds. And plenty of dog treats so let me know if your pup is on a restricted diet please!

About Karen's Home

When Karen watches your pet

We have acres of fields surrounding our farm and love to go for walks! Normally our visiting dogs get lots of indoor and outdoor playtime. We take 2 walks a day - 2 miles in the morning and 1 mile early afternoon (if pup is able & willing!) Dogs are always kept on leash when out of our fenced area.
PLEASE NOTE! For boarded dogs, they need to be picked up by 10:30 AM on day of pick up or there is an additional charge for Dog Daycare on pick up day!
