Karina is one of the most trustworthy and dependable people I know. She loves and understands animals so well. She has 4 dogs and 1 cat herself and I would trade places with them if I could because of how well she takes care of them! Not only does she excel at caring for her own pets, she extends the same care for others'. I wouldn't trust anyone to watch my "babies" as much as ...

Karina has been pet-sitting my dogs since 2012. I know that when I leave my pets with her, they will be well cared for and slightly spoiled! She is an amazing caretaker with many great qualities that makes her the ideal steward. She is a pleasant, friendly person who goes above and beyond for the pets she cares for.

Providing "paw-some" pet care!

I'm a lifelong animal lover and an elementary teacher who is enjoying a full summer off at home. I've had dogs, cats and horses all my life and am skilled in caring for them since I was a young child. I have a chocolate lab named Coco, a pomeranian named Ava, a rat terrier Chloe and a Yorkie named Ellie. They are the sweetest, most well-behaved, loving girls and I couldn't imagine life without them ...

What Karina would like to know about your dog

I am comfortable with all breeds of dogs, as long as they are not aggressive. There are a few things that I would like to know about your dog(s) before our meet and greet so that I can be better prepared to meet their needs.

Describe your dog's personality/behavior.
What is your dog's daily schedule?
Is your dog strictly an "inside" dog, "outside" dog or a combination?
Is your dog potty trained? Crate trained? Pee pad trained?
Does your dog have any history of aggression/biting with strangers?
What is your dog afraid of? What will they react to?
Does your dog have any quirks I need to be aware of?
What relaxes your dog/makes them happy?
Are toys left out 24/7 or put away after play time?
Are there any special instructions for meal time?
Are there any special commands or words I should use with your pet?
How do you reward good behavior? How do you deal with bad behavior?
Is your pet allergic to anything?
What period of time, if any, is your dog normally left alone for?
Any areas of the home your dog is not allowed in?

Knowing this information will help me care for your dog in the safest, most effective way possible. Thank you!
