About Karen

58 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
YEA! SPRING BREAK!!

We care for all kinds of Critter, dogs, cats, bird, horses, exotics... We love them all. My house or yours..
We offer daycare services to. For playtime or those long days when you have to be away.
I know how hard it is to leave your precious baby/s with a stranger while you go on Vacation or visit friends and family. My promise to you is, We will love and care for your babies just like they are one of our own. You will come to think of us as your babies home away from home because of all the love and attention we have to share.
I'm a retired young senior working at home, doing what I dearly LOVE. I've been in the Dog industry over 50 years.(Grooming and Boarding). My Son lives and works with me and it's a perfect place for your babies to be loved and cuddled while your away..
We would love for you to come out for a meet-n-greet, or we can come to you.
That way you and your babies can meet us and check out our house, see if were a good fit for them.
or if we are doing visits to your house. we come to you so we can learn all about the care etc. your kids need.
We also do Farmsitting..
Please don't be alarmed that I have large dogs. They are dear sweet big babies. and wouldn't hurt a flea. They have their OWN SEPARATE YARD. AND ARE NEVER ALLOWED WITH OUR VISITORS UNLESS THE OWNER WISHES FOR THEM TO PLAY TOGETHER. They do however sound intimidating. But believe me they are big lapdogs.

PLEASE
Never leave your Precious Babies in a Cold concrete Kennel again !

How about your Pet/s staying in a Warm , inviting home where your Pets will be treated like Royalty. Lots of Love and Affection, with Playtime and lots of exercise..

A vacation is a time to relax, unwind, and take a break from the obligations and stresses of everyday life. The last thing you want to be doing is lying on the beach or lounging by a pool worrying about your dog. Finding someone to watch your pup when you travel is always a challenge. Traditionally, your options involve coaxing an unreliable friend or family member into watching your dog or taking him to a kennel that is simultaneously boarding ninety-nine other dogs.

We have loads of experience with the Giant Breeds to.. Great Danes, Great Pyrenees, etc. The Giant Breeds are basically just big lapdogs.. We charge alittle extra for them though.

*When your Pet stays with us, He/she is loved with all our Hearts, and given the loving Attention he/she deserves and used to..

*They are able to have their own suites, and also play and/or socialize with my own playful pets..

*We are able to administer medication if needed..

I know how sometimes just the change in water can upset your babies tummy's, so we always give Fresh Cool Osmosis Filtered Water to drink..

I also ask that all dogs be on a flea and tick prevention, I know everyone thinks the freeze this winter killed alot of bad bugs, but I don't think so judging by the June Bugs I've seen.. Man I hate June Bug.. LOL

*Our home is on 10 acres with a strong fenced in back yard. Never is your Dog outside unattended.. If need be on a leash.. Security is very serious with us..
*The yard is cleaned and sanitized regularly .

* I've groomed professionally for 50 years. I can provide small breed grooming. Prices start at 40. dollars. Just ask.

*We offer a 2 dollar discount for the 2nd pet..
*On pickup day. If your pickup will be after 1 pm. , there will be a charge for that day.
*We do allow Sunday pickups.. :))

*We provide email, text or phone updates.. even pictures daily if you wish.
*We are a non smoking home..
*No children..Mine are grown..
So give us a try.. Your Pet will be so Happy you did..

*Your welcome to look me up on Facebook..
Thank you !!
We also offer a service where we can come to your house to care for your Pets.Absolutely no stress, Your Pets are Staying in their own home . Visits generally 30 minutes , course depending on how many Pets you have, We even Offer Farm Sitting, Feeding Horses , Goats , Chickens etc. Limited to the Ellis County area. Each visit is $25.00 ,

Karen did a fantastic job with Ares. He was a very happy pup and she sent pictures to let me know he was okay without me even having to ask. She is fantastic with dogs and has a professional background in grooming that made me feel better as well. fantastic with dogs and has a professional background in grooming that made me feel better as well. It is a dog friendly environment she is great about managing any difficulties there may be.

I really can't say enough good things. They treated my cats well and I came home to a neat and orderly house. They made a point to come over and meet with us before hand, were very flexible, and spent some time getting to know our monsters with us with us before hand, were very flexible, and spent some time getting to know our monsters with us there. We felt at ease as we possibly could while being away from our furry children which allowed us to concentrate on work during business travel. We will be using Karen and Matt again to be sure.
