Karissa is absolutely fantastic!! I had piece of mind knowing that Karissa was taking care of my little furry baby. She truly loves all animals and it shows. She is the only one I trust to care of my little Misty.

Karissa is absolutely amazing! She has watched my dog twice now and I couldn’t be happier with the way she treated her. I got multiple photos of my happy dog while I was away and my dog was so happy and excited when I dropped her off the second time as well. I feel much better knowing that my dog was well taken care of and loved while I was traveling.

I treat your babies like my own :)

"You can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals".

Well, I'm a self-professed dog fanatic (okay, okay, some may call me a crazy dog lady) who absolutely adores anything and everything to do with four legged fur babies of all kinds. I will admit that I am a true dog person; a get on the ground with them, scratch their bellies, wet puppy kiss loving, "dog hair is just a condiment" ...

What Karissa would like to know about your dog

I would like to know their spay/neuter status, their typical temperament,
a little about their personality and what they normally like to do!

PLEASE NOTE the following before requesting a stay:

**If your baby is NOT potty-trained please notify me beforehand so I can provide more potty breaks and avoid accidents.
**I do not accept females who are in heat.
**I do not accept dogs who chew, scratch or portray destructive behavior. (Furniture, carpet, walls)
**I do not accept dogs who are dog or human aggressive.

Thank you :)

When Karissa watches your pet

If your pooch is up for it, I hike South Mountain 5x a week
(Fall through Mid-Spring)

Most every evening we take a night time walk before bed to burn some of that energy off! (Don't worry we never go for walks when the pavement is too hot!)

In the hotter afternoons I set up a kiddie-pool for those fur babies who like water to play in and cool off.

If your fur baby isn't up for that kind of activity he/she will still be able to enjoy lots of cuddles, playtime, love and almost sickening baby talk :)
