Safe, Fun Home with Large Backyard

I have been boarding and caring for dogs for 8 years now. I enjoy getting to know dogs, each with their unique personality, as well as meeting their humans. I have cared for a wide variety of dogs with different temperaments. We live in a single family home with a large yard and pool, so there is lots of room for playing. All yard play is supervised. In addition, we live in a gated community ...

What Karen would like to know about your dog

I like to know if your dog has any special requirements to help him feel safe and comfortable on his stay away with us. Beyond that, I can only take dogs who are socialized with other dogs and potty trained. If your dog has a large accident while here, I do charge $50 for cleaning.

When Karen watches your pet

I find that most dogs do really well when they know what to expect. We walk at least twice a day, and more if your dog is active. In our gated community and Los Gatos we are near many beautiful trails. Every day is structured with walks, meal times, yard play, rest times, and of course, cuddling times if your dog loves that!
