Karen was great! I had no doubt Fais was well taken care of and that she had a great time with Karen and Pretzel while we were out of town. Karen kept us up to date with messages and pictures throughout her stay. We will definitely use Karen next time we leave town!

Karen was great! Fast communication and making time to meet up before my trip was a breeze. My old girl was in good hands, I'll definitely be booking again!

What Karen would like to know about your dog

While I have no specific preferences, if this is the first time your dog will be staying with me, I do require a meet and greet beforehand. This is just to make sure that both your dog and mine are comfortable for the stay, and it gives you a chance to go over any details or ask any questions. I'm happy to take any dog, but I need to make sure they will be happy here first!
