My tried and true! I had anxiety just leaving my dogs to run errands but I feel very comfortable leaving them at her "home away from home." Karissa is amazing and is like an old friend, who I haven't seen in a long time and we just pick up chatting! My dogs rate her an A+++ and they always know best!

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 :)

When Karissa watches your dog

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 :)
