Karissa was AMAZING! She was so sweet with our dog and gave regular updates while we were gone. She truly made sure we continued to feel connected with our pup while we had to be away! Karissa is a top pick!

Karissa was so nice and seemed to truly our pup! She was very accommodating with drop off and pick up times. Will use her again!

Boystown Pup Care!

Hello! My name is Karissa Kosman. I am currently attending Columbia College Chicago for musical theatre. I grew up surrounded by dogs, owned two, and frequently walked my friend's and neighbor's dogs for over 12 years. I love dogs so so much and I find enjoyment in meeting new dogs, entertaining, and taking care of them. I will take them on walks, feed them, spoil them with treats if the owner allows it, and they ...

What Karissa would like to know about your dog

Are they afraid of anything? Any triggers? Allergies? Favorite treat? Peanut butter okay? Are they active or lazy? What times do you usually walk your dog? What times do you feed your dog? Does your dog bark?

When Karissa watches your pet

I tend to explore the neighborhood or go to parks. If a dog park is nearby and the owner approves, I might take the dog there as well. I usually try and have as much fun as I can with the dog!
