I don't think I know of anyone who loves dogs as much as Karen. She is a caring, responsible, and loving person who will treat your pet like it is her own. Her calm nature, honesty and love of animals in general makes her an ideal candidate to watch someone's pet. I highly recommend Karen for dog sitting. You will not be disappointed.

I have known Karen for almost 30 years. She has watched my cats for me over the years. She takes care of their needs and spends time with them, giving them affection and TLC. She even gives necessary medication to my cat twice a day! I never worry about my cats' well being when they are with Karen.

Karen helped take care of my dog when I was recovering from surgery. She obviously loved spending time with my beagle and he loved his walks with her, even though he pulled on the leash. When i returned to work and added another doggie, she came to the house for three days while i was out of town and then 3 times a week for play time and walks. she is prompt, trustworthy and I ...

I'll be your dog's best friend!

I got a dog when I was eight years old. He was my life. I love all kinds of animals. I have two cats now but I've been taking care of other people's dogs all my life. I'm one of those people who loves the company of animals even more than people. Dogs are awesome. Dogs get lonely when their people aren't around. I want them to feel happy and loved and I take excellent ...

What Karen would like to know about your dog

I have no breed preferences. I would ask if the dog nips at people so I know if I should be cautious of anyone on the streets who stop to pet them. I would ask if the dog likes to eat whatever they find outside so I can monitor them closely so they don't eat something that will cause them to choke or get sick. I would ask about what the dog's favorite toys, possible allergies, medical needs, emergency numbers, vet number and location and dietary needs. I would write all information down and keep a book of clients and the dog's needs so nothing is forgotten.

When Karen watches your pet

I will take the dog around their home's neighborhood. If there is a fenced in backyard, I will throw a ball or toy to the dog and give them fresh air, exercise and playtime. When I take them for walks, I enjoy walking a long time and I talk to them and it's a good way to bond with them. Generally, they'll be spoiled rotten with attention.
