Kari is the absolute BEST with dogs. Not just dogs, but all fur animals. She is kind-hearted and will care for your dog like it was her own. She is patient, loving, kind, and caring. She has taken care of my dog many times over and will do everything she can to make your dog feel like he/she is at home. Kari is the best!

Only love can make a tail wag

From a very young age I was given the nick name "Ellie Mae". I love any and all animals. I have owned/fostered/rescued cats, dogs, rabbits, chickens, lizards, birds,turtles and more. Animals are what I live for. Along with my children of course. ;)
With 2 kids and animals we have lots of love and energy to share with you. I would love to help you with you fur babie in any way I ...

What Kari would like to know about your dog

First, of course, is the pets name(s). Then the basics, age, sex, breed just to give me an idea of who I'm working with. I don't have any preferences as far as breed, size, age or sex. They are all great to me. I would also like to know what their favorite treat, toy, or interest is so I can spoil them just a tad.

I have a big yard that is great for running and playing. Or if your pet is more into sun bathing, it's great for that too. Behind my house is a large pond with a walkway around it. I love to walk there. Also, My kids and I love trails. If your dog is up for it, we can go on a short hike.
I have been through a few tough situations that were pretty scary with dogs. None of the dogs involved were in my care but because of going through these issues it has made me learn and be super cautious. 
I have 4 dogs of my own. Two large breeds and two small breed dogs. They are all loving and great.
 We introduce new animals to each of them separately. Never all at once, that's way to overwhelming for everyone involved. So don't worry if you pup is a little shy. I promise to make them comfortable in whatever way they need!
To keep anyone from escaping while on a walk, my own dogs or someone else's, I will first and foremost make sure they have a harness or very secure collar on. I will never just walk up to new animals. If it's a meet and greet I'll make sure it's a large enough area for each dog to have their own space while walking but close enough to get a feel of how they feel about each other. If things look good between the dogs we will come closer slowly until they have fully met and everyone is calm and happy.  I fully understand the stress signs in dogs if they aren't comfortable with their surroundings. If any stress at all is seen I will "abort mission". The dogs well being is way more important than anything. 
All doors, entry/exit ways and windows will be secure at all times to ensure no dog(s) will bolt threw and escape.
I've had multiple dogs so i know that feeding time is a task :) While with me, each dog has their own eating spot and is private until they are finished. I don't give them a chance, if there is any, to have aggression over food. Once everyone is finished eating I take the bowls up. Everyone will get full bellies and calm hearts.
If a dog is showing any sort of anxiety I will first sit in the floor with them (or their fav spot) and talk softly and give lots of love. I will keep in contact with (you) owners as much as possible. If you can tell me any special tricks to help your dog I'll for sure do that. I will calmly let you know what's going on and reassure you everything is and will be fine.
The dogs are my main priority. I'll go the extra mile and more to make sure they are very well taken care of and happy.
