Karen did a great job taking care of my little baby, Bridget. While B has many medications, Karen was able to keep track of all the special instructions and even managed to snap a few cute photos. Definitely recommend!

Karen was a wonderful sitter for our Sara. Karen was flexible with the drop-off and pick-up, and her dog Pretzel was a fun companion to Sara. Their house and yard are very dog friendly. I would recommend Karen to anyone looking for a dog sitter in the Garden District/Irish Channel area.

Rocket loves Karen! I loved the messages and photo she sent while I was out of town. Karen was great about pick up and drop off. You can definitely see the love and care she has for animals. Will be booking with her again!!

Pretzel's Puptime

I am a professional animal care taker (zookeeper), with a degree in animal behavior and have a ton of experience with animals WAY harder to deal with than dogs! I have also worked in an SPCA shelter and for 2 years as a part-time dog trainer. I currently have a young dog that is great with other dogs and could use some occasional friends/doggie sleepovers!

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!
