Karen was easy to schedule with and very welcoming to my dog. He seemed to have a great time with her family. I’m sure he got a lot of attention from the kids and was allowed on beds. However, he’s on a special diet due to allergies and can’t eat other food or treats (as stated on his profile). He ended up eating another dog’s food and got sick. So this ...

Karen welcomed my golden retriever, Watson, so nicely and took great care of him. Her kids took him on two walks a day and he got lots of attention which he loves. Karen sent pictures of Watson playing in her yard with a dog that stays with her regularly and said they got along great. I was worried that Watson wouldn’t want to come home after all of the fun he had at Karen ...

When Karen watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
The end of our block you can jump onto Burke Gilman trail. We go to Matthews Beach 3+ times a week. Magnuson park is always a fun place to go, I just don't like it when it is on the weekends, too busy for me. I like to hike on I-90 corridor, Cougar and Tiger Mountain are my go to hiking spots. We walk to Laurelhurst Park all the time, or just stroll the neighborhood. Your dog will get walked several times a day, it is good for everyone!
My hours for drop off and pick up times are 7am-7pm.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Most likely in m daughter's bed. She has a queen bed, and that way another kid can jump in bed with them. They take turns sleeping with my clients, they love it. We also have a theater room in the basement. A big couch and some times the kids fall asleep down there and the dogs follow suit. It is comfortable. The dogs are more than welcome in my room, they just usually gravitate to the kids (do you blame them?)
My hours for drop off and pick up times are 7am - 7pm.

Time I'll spend with your dog
20+ hours
