Karissa is awesome! This was the 1st time we've used a sitter other than family, and Karissa took our babies in as her own. She helped ease the transition and nerves.

Karissa did an amazing job taking care of my golden retriever. She sent me daily updates and we're very responsive anytime I contacted here.

We recently acquired a service dog for my partner who has seizures. She wasn't quite ready for travel yet, so we decided to board her over a weekend during a move. When a seizure occurred during the move, Karissa was so helpful and supportive when I contacted her to ask if she could watch her one more night since I needed to be at the hospital.

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 :)
