Kari is a wonderful pet / house sitter. We recently moved from the area and miss her covering my routine travels. My dog, a little nervous when her routine is disrupted, did o.k. in boarding, but I could tell she was MUCH more relaxed, happy in her own home with Kari. Also appreciated Kari's dependable and caring approach - made it easier for me to be away from home with less dog parent guilt!

When Kari watches your pet

Aside from sniffing out the best dog parks to meet new friends, I'm always down for a game of catch or tug-o-war with your furry friend. Once we are home, your pet can expect to be played with, scratched, snuggled, brushed, and talked to. Pets get smarter the more you include them in the conversation. :)
