My dog had a great stay with Karen and Oliver. He is normally an anxious dog who does not like being away from home. However, when I picked him up, he was calm and happy and seemed sad to leave. Karen provided thorough updates during his stay. Thanks Karen for providing such a safe and happy environment while we were away!

I definitely recommend Karen! She is super knowledgeable and very kind. I knew my dog was in good hands. She gave me daily updates and even emailed me a special Holiday card with Bella's picture. I would love to have Bella stay with her again :)

Karen is exactly the kind of dog sitter you want when you go out of town. She's very knowledgeable about dogs and has a sweet little poodle of her own. Karen gave us lots of detail about Charlie's stay, as well as photos which we really appreciated! We highly recommend her.

Old Town Bed and Biscuit: personal care in my home

Hi! Bring your dog to my home, Old Town Bed and Biscuit, where he/she will be treated like one of the family!

Please note that I generally only take in one guest dog at a time, except during holidays when there may be 2-3 guests whose parents are vacationing. Dogs 20 lbs and under only please. Since I love Tibetan Terriers, I do make an exception for them! Finally, your dog must be housebroken ...

What Karen would like to know about your dog

It's always a good idea to meet a dog before committing to pet-sitting services. You and I can talk about your pet's needs and you can inspect the premises and learn about how I will care for your pet. Specifically, I would need to know your pet’s daily schedule; temperament; health issues/vet contact; food and diet preferences/restrictions; activity level/exercise needs; command familiarity; and behavioral quirks (cats, skateboards, bicycles, kids and horses--yes, carriage horses periodically walk past my house and through the neighborhood).
