My dog was well cared for with Karina. She is a real "dog person". Thank you!

Karina is easy to work with and was great with our somewhat needy dog! She is very accommodating to scheduling needs and clearly understands the quirks and needs of the dogs she has in her home. We are happy to have found someone so trustworthy to take our dog when we travel.

We've asked Karina to take care of our cats several times now, and she has always done a fantastic job. It's a relief to know she's looking after them. Thanks so much, Karina!

Hello! I cant wait to meet you fur child. I have a long history with not only dogs and cats, but have had a small farm and an educational petting zoo.

How does your dog behave off and on leash?

When Karina watches your pet

Weather permitting, we often go as a pack to the beach or the wooded trails for a long walk or some serious run around time
If your dog is good off leash, we go where they can have freedom to be themselves. Because I keep my client numbers limited, I can give your sweet friend the individual attention he or she craves, even if there are other dogs on a stay. My main goal is to completely eliminate any anxiety your sweet friend might arrive. I have been 100% successful so far. We will play actively if your pet is able, and spend lots of time petting and snuggling often. I am happy to send both photos and videos to you during the stay.
A balance of activity and quiet attention are the tools I employ. Whatever it is that helps you and your friend feel more relaxed whether its a ball throwing session or a cuddle. I know how they miss their people when we are away.
I give a wicked pet massage as well. (No extra charge!)
