Karissa did an excellent job! She was prompt and sent pictures. One of our puppies got a little sick while we were away and she let us know his status. We have three puppies and a cat so it was very nice to know they were all well taken care of! Would recommend Karissa for your pet care needs!

Karissa did a great job watching my dogs and taking care of our home. She sent pics everyday and kept me updated on home happenings like a power outage. I have a senior dog on medication and a couple hyper young dogs. She made sure everyone was taken care of. We will definitely be giving her a call the next time we need a pet sitter

Karissa came and walked our pup. She was prompt, provided good proactive communication, was very personable and our dog was able to get some much needed exercise. I definitely recommend Karissa as a dog walker.

I am often booked months in advance and have a large clientele off of Rover.com in addition to my regulars on this site. I'd be bummed to miss a chance to spend time with your furry family members.

I have over 15 years in home pet sitting experience! I'd love to ...

When Karissa watches your pet

Time I'll spend with your dog
I do work during the day, but not very long hours. A typical work day for me is from 8-3 with two days off a week. I do my best to get home to your pets as soon as I'm off work.

Extra house-sitting services
I can do things around the house while you are away! Feel free to contact me if you have questions!
