Karen is an animal whisperer! She has a love for all animals and is the best house/pet sitter. She's trustworthy, responsible, respectful and treats your animals like royalty! She evens sends you pictures while you are away if you want (she happens to be a great photographer too). I would recommend her to anyone!

Loving up on the Underdog!

I have been dedicated to helping animals in some capacity throughout my entire life. Whether I'm volunteering for an animal rescue, working in animal rights, or transporting a newly rescued dog to her adopted family, I have always been helping out in any way that I can.

I started growing my petsitting business by caring for friends' and family's pets. Many of my return clients these days travel frequently for work in the entertainment ...

What Karen would like to know about your dog

Leash aggression is nice to know about prior to a sit if we will be walking every day. I have a lot of experience working with homeless/rescued animals, I would have to say I understand them best. However, I have a peaceful, loving demeanor and most animals warm up to me quickly. I love them all, and all of them tend to love me right back. :)

When Karen watches your pet

I will follow your instructions to a tee for feeding, walks and administering medications. Otherwise, we play ball, frisbee, or fetch with toys, and I absolutely love to brush them, if they are open to it. It's a great way to let them know you are safe and they can trust you. I don't typically take the animals in my car unless it's for a vet appointment, grooming or something requested by the owner. I'm happy to bathe the little ones, too if requested. If a hike trail is nearby, we are so there!
