Karena was great with Duncan! He got plenty of attention and put my mind at ease being away from him knowing he was in such good hands!

Karena was great! We booked her for house sitting. I was able to enjoy my vacation without worrying. We will definitely be using her sitting service again in the future.

Karena was great. Doggos looked happy and healthy when we picked them up. Karena kept us updated about the dogs frequently. Would definitely recommend and use again!

Double insured!! CPR Trained!!

I am a lifelong dog lover and really take pride in providing love and care to pups. I currently have three of my own: a Golden Retriever named Kato, a Mini Schnauzer named Lucy, and a Shih-Tzu named Daisy. We would love to bring your pup into our family while you’re away! I’ve grown up with dogs my whole life and am very comfortable around all kinds of pups. No matter what, your ...

What Karena would like to know about your dog

I know that it can be a little scary at first for a pup to get used to a new environment. I’m always happy to schedule a meet-and-greet before the actual stay in order to make sure that the transition is as smooth as possible. Once we do that and everything is a good fit, I always want to know ahead of time if there’s any special health needs that need to be attended to. Whether that be dietary restrictions, medicine that needs to be administered, or behavior triggers, no amount of attention is too much for me. I also like to know if your pooch has any kind of regimen or schedule that they like to stick to, such as morning or evening walks, regular meal times, or reserved times for activities. Finally, I always love learning how I can spoil your pup the best, so I’m all ears for any tips!

When Karena watches your pet

Whether your pup is hanging out with me or one of my three canine co-pilots, there are a number of great places to explore. My backyard is a great place to play around in and has plenty of grass to lay around in as well. My neighborhood, Rose Ranch, is very dog-friendly and I’m sure we’ll meet some new friends along the way! There are some great parks nearby, and I sometimes like to head down to the beach too. If your pooch enjoys swimming, we can definitely go for a dip together! If your pup is a bit more on the easy-going side, we can always spend more time cuddling and taking it easy. I’m happy to accommodate!
