Karina was EXCELLENT in keeping my furballs (3 kitties + 1 doggie) healthy, safe & happy while we’re away for a few days. She knows exactly how to make them feel at home. With her background and experience, we couldn’t be happier with the service. The daily texts, photo and video updates were precious and completely put us at ease.

(Thank you, Karina, for everything. YOU ROCK!!)

Karina took care of our 3 dogs for a week while we went on vacation as if they were her own. Karina is very caring and sweet who loves animals. She sent us pictures and updates every day while we were away which gave us peace of mind. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a trust-worthy and responsible person to look after their pets!!

What Karina would like to know about your dog

Due to location, I can ONLY pet sit at the owners home. Unfortunately, I cannot have pets over my place (although I would love to)!
I would in fact would love to get to know all about my furry friend! I would love to know what they eat, and how? If they like to be watched or alone, if they need be fed a small amount at a time? Do they eat too quickly or not? Are they picky? Do they have specific spots in the home where they urinate/defecate? Hiding spots? How are they on walks; pet friendly/people friendly? Which routes are they most comfortable with? Any allergies? Are they on any medications? Any food or toy aggression or motivation? Anything and everything!

Additional Skills

When Karina watches your pet

If the weather is nice, we can go for a quick jog. If a dog park is near by, play fetch or with any toy they like. If owner's have a backyard, playing ball would be awesome if our furry friend likes it!
