Karen took great care of our two dogs while we were gone for a few days. We were especially worried about our tiny, anxious, old man dog, but Karen was so sweet with him and really gave him the extra attention he needed. She sent pictures and updates so we could see how happy Bella and Ricky were in her home. Thank you Karen!

Karen is a jewel, and truly cares about the dogs she keeps. Our dog was instantly attached to her, and she sent us several pictures showing how much she was enjoying her stay. I will use Karen again anytime I need to board our dog.
She is the absolute best!
