Karen is incredibly sweet and has watched my puppies before. She really cares about her clients and the dogs. You know they'll be well taken care of and sage in Karen's care!

Being a pet sitter myself, I find it hard to to find someone that meets up to my standards. Karen far exceeds those standards. Her attention to detail is impeccable, she has a genuine love of all animals and her knowledge of animal care and training are top notch.

I have known Karen since she was a little girl. She loves all animals, especially dogs and horses. She has a special ability to be able to relate to and understand dogs, and has used this ability to raise and train guide dog puppies and the puppies have gone on to be successful guide dogs. I personally would love it if Karen could care for my dog while we are away- we just live too ...

This Fairy Dog Mother Will Be There

I started Pet Sitting before I was a teenager and have continued ever since. I had my own pet sitting business for several years and have been reliable, trustworthy and provided peace of mind to all my clients. I've raised Guide Dogs for the Blind and have years of experience in positive training techniques. I've worked with kennel dogs, rescued dogs, all high energy, with very little training. Providing them with skills for future careers ...

What Karen would like to know about your dog

I have absolutely NO breed choices! All are welcome! I have experience with all levels of training from puppies to adults, from easy going to stubborn. All I need is some time with the pup and a conversation with the parents in order to gain valuable knowledge about what will make the pup happy.

When Karen watches your pet

Activity choices will always depend on the dog! If they like the dog park, I am capable of keeping them safe there. Often dogs like to stay close to home, smelling the doggie newspaper on the routes where neighboring dogs live. Tug of war, hide and seek, whatever their hearts desire, I'll discover it and provide it.
