Dotty has stayed with Kari and her family several times and each stay has been wonderful. She sends updates and takes great care of my pup.Can’t recommend Kari highly enough!

My dog loves staying with Kari! She always races up to the door and is super excited to run in and greet everybody there, especially Kari's pup Murphy who keeps her entertained. Kari is always super responsive to request, has always sent lots of photo updates, and is happy to chat about Hazel's needs and her stay as needed.

This is our second time with Kari and family! She is detailed and caring as always with our little pup. Wouldn't hesitate to have her board our dog again!

Love, Attention & Hospitality

I am a textile designer/animal lover working from home with plenty of love and care to give your animal. My husband and I live in Decatur with a large back yard and short distance to Oakhurst Dog Park. Our rescued miniature schnauzer, Baxter (10), is my little shadow and gets along with all animals. We also have Murphy, a 2yr old tomboy & lab mix who loves to play frisbee outside. I'm very experienced ...

What Kari would like to know about your dog

The most important thing is personality and how they live. I can accommodate any behavior or need as long as I know more about them and what they like. So tell us how your dog likes to be in their own home and we will do our best to recreate that experience. Our dogs are well trained & socialized and are allowed on the sofa and sleep with us in bed. No breed preferences, I love them all!

When Kari watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
We live in a nice residential area just south of the Decatur square we like to walk our dogs around. We are also very close to Oakhurst Dog Park and also take our dogs there for extended play time.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
It's up to you. We have both hard & soft crates to use, several dogs beds, you can bring your own, or if you like to spoil your pet, we're fine with our animal friends lounging on our non precious sofas. We also allow our dogs to sleep in bed with us if that's what you prefer.

Time I'll spend with your dog
We spend a lot of time with our dogs in the morning working them out. Miss Murphy is a frisbee dog and needs sufficient exercise in the morning. We both work from home during the day and our dogs usually take that time to chill and are taken outside when they need. Dinnertime is followed by another round of exercise outside. The evenings usually involve some serious cuddle time on our large sectional sofa. We like to go for walks on the weekends and often visit the Oakhurst Dog Park.
