My husband and I took a trip to Disneyland over the weekend and decided to try Rover.com for our Chloe. When I began looking at the available sitters and reading their info, I immediately was drawn to Karissa L. We sat up a time to 'meet and greet' and felt very comfortable with Karissa and her husband Matt. I could tell they were truly animal people and Chloe warmed up to them right away ...

Karissa was responsive, communicative, and flexible. We needed a sitter last minute during a very hectic time and she was so kind and easy going. from the moment I dropped my dog until I picked him up I knew he was in good hands. She sent pictures that assured me he was right st home and when I picked him up he was quite content. I will keep her number handy for future engagements.

  • Verified Background Check

Dogs make my life full and rich.

I have been around dogs since I was a baby. Taking care of animals and specifically dogs has always been part of my life. In the last two years I have expanded my horizons above just caring, training, bathing and loving the family pet. I have had three different consistent clients and I love all their pets deeply. They quickly became family. I am no stranger to taking care of small dogs or large dogs ...

What Karissa would like to know about your dog

I would like to know about any aggressive tendencies towards other animals or people. I would like to know if the dog is potty trained ( pad trained is acceptable) or if they tend to mark their territory.

When Karissa watches your pet

I have a wonderful neighborhood to walk in, it is quiet and there isn't a lot of traffic so it is also safe. My place is also all carpet so they can run around all they want without slipping and sliding.
