Beau loved Karissa from the moment she first walked in. It was obvious that Karissa loves and knows about animals. She was always right on time; completely professional and friendly.

Worked@ Animal Hospital, Kennel

I have lots of experience working with dogs. Personally I have owned a Maltese and a Morkie. I volunteer at Readington Animal Hospital during the summers, where I worked in the boarding section as well as the recovery rooms, walking, feeding, and cleaning up after the animals. I worked at Tarheel Total Pet Care last summer, where I learned to groom dogs, supervised the 'doggie camp,' fed, and walked many of the dogs there ...

When Karissa watches your pet

I live near a number of great parks, my favorites being Deer Path Park and Round Valley. If I got the opportunity to spend an afternoon with a dog, I would love to bring them to one of those places. If the dog isn't up for that sort of thing, I will take them around my neighborhood, and play with them at their owner's house. If it happens to be raining, they'll go for a shorter walk, and then after they are dried off, we can play inside.
