Karissa has watched Chilli and Ozzy probably close to a dozen times over the past year and this past weekend she was the MVP of our wedding. When we got engaged, we knew we wanted Chilli and Ozzy involved but they couldn't come to the actual ceremony. Karissa came by in the morning to take them for a walk/entertain them while we were getting ready and then brought them down to Fenway Park to ...

Karissa watched our 2 dogs, Chilli and Ozzy, while we were out of town for 24 hours a couple weekends ago. She came over Sunday morning, took care of them all day and fed and walked them before work Monday morning. Chilli and Ozzy love Karissa.

Karissa is always great with Chilli and Ozzy whether it's for a weekend, a week long stay or just a quick drop in to feed them dinner and walk them after work. Chilli and Ozzy can't wait to see her again this weekend. :)

Small girl, big heart for dogs!

Hi, my name is Karissa and I have loved dogs and all other animals since I was a child. I also love nature, so why not bring a dog along for my outdoor excursions? I believe that walks are incredibly stimulating for dogs, and very important for their overall mental health! I can't imagine being trapped in a house all day, so why should a dog be left inside?! I'm a recent graduate from Boston ...

What Karissa would like to know about your dog

I have experience with all size breeds, from Chihuahua to Great Dane. More important than size though is the dogs comfort level with other animals and humans. Is your pet aggressive with other dogs? (I have experience with aggressive dogs btw!) Food aggression? Likes to be pet but doesn't like when his belly is touched? I am happy to accommodate your dogs specific needs!!!

Extra house-sitting services:
I am more than willing to house sit as well as dogsit, so I can collect mail, water your house plants, etc. Just ask!

When Karissa watches your pet

I live in Roslindale, MA and I love exploring the Arboretum, Blue Hills and walking around Jamaica Pond. If the owners prefer that I stay close to home, I don't mind walking around the neighborhood. I love cuddles and wouldn't mind watching some TV with your fur baby before bedtime during overnight stays.
