Karissa is a one of a kind dog sitter who really loves dogs and loved our sweet Bella. A few days into her stay, Bella stopped eating and became very weak. Karissa kept us updated on Bella's condition, even going to the store for more dog treats when Bella wouldn't eat anything else.

As always, Karissa took such great care of my dog. I have had the privilege to have Karissa watch my Liberty on several occasions now and every time I know she is in the best of care.

I treat your babies like my own :)

RIP Gilbert 23. "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 ...

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 :)
