It took me awhile to right this review but I thought I should share my experience with Klarissa. On the first day of her sitting I couldn’t get a hold of her and had to send a coworker to see if the dogs were okay. She was there but she said she was asleep. Since it took 4 hours to find her I didn’t know if the dogs were feed or had their ...

Brodie took to Karissa from the very first moment. She was very professional and I knew he'd be in good hands. She sent a photo update every day so I could see he was doing well. It was nice to come home to a clean house as I left it and a well-kept-for dog who got to snuggle.

Karissa is awesome!
Our dogs can be a handful and they were taken great care of! She frequently sent us pictures of them while we were gone on a 3 day trip, and we came home to some happy dogs.

A carer willing to do what it takes

Hi there, here are the things you would like about me as a caregiver for your pet. First, I have been surrounded by animals for the entirety of my life from turtles to dogs.

What Karissa would like to know about your dog

I would like to know if your dog has any boundaries or safety nets before sitting them. The normal things if they don't like to be scratched I'd like to make sure I don't do it. If they are trained to nip instead of lick just give me a forewarning to be prepared. Does not bother me, but if I expect I will know they are not meaning to be hostile.
