I knew when I met Kari that she would be the perfect dogsitter for our dog. She was relaxed and you could tell she really loves dogs. It was our first time leaving our dog with anyone (he's a pup) and Kari made us feel at ease with her upbeat reports and photos. We were afraid he wouldn't want to come home! Working with Kari was a great experience and we hope to see more ...

Kari is the best. She knows a lot about dogs and our dogs clearly had a great time in her big yard.

My terrier, Scooter, quickly warmed up to Kari. He is rather shy and a bit anxious so I was happy to
see this. She sent me a photo of Scooter enjoying her spacious front yard while I was on vacation. I plan to stick with Kari in the future and would highly recommend her care service.
