About Karen

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I love ALL dogs: Big or small; young or old; energetic or kick back; even special needs. Your dog will get an attentive and trustworthy playmate to keep them occupied while you are away. While I don't have a yard in which they can run freely, we will take many trips to the dog park, hikes, beach and anywhere else they like to go or if your dog is timid or needs to be the ONLY dog, I am open to that too. My best friend of 11 years was blind before he died and I still miss him. To fill the gap, I have fostered for Second Chance Dog Rescue and boarded dogs for Dogs on Deployment, which is an organization to help military personnel take care of their animals when deployed. I have had the distinct pleasure of taking a scared, street dog and helping him gain confidence and socialization so he could be adopted. I absolutely LOVE all animals. I am looking forward to making your "fur-babies" stay as wonderful an adventure as I hope your vacation is for you. Will you let me get "my dog fix"?? If you would like your dog to be the one and only, I would accommodate that.

Karen was awesome. Our Pomeranian had his first visit with her, a 3 day stay, and had a great time. He got more attention and exercise than he gets from us!
We love Karen, Jake is always so happy to be with her. She treats him like her own. I am always comfortable leaving Jake with Karen. He misses her, I say her name and he starts looking for her. Wii certainly be using Karen time and time again.
I were beyond thrilled with the care and attention Karen gave my dog.
Karen did an awesome job of caring for our 2 senior rescue dogs with tons of baggage and our 3 senior rescued cats with health issues. She recognized deterioration in health of one of cats and took him to vet. She dealt effectively with the acting out of one of dogs. She texted appropriately with questions and problems.
Karen is knowledgeable of animals,their health and behaviors.
Karen is amazing.

I am so happy we found Karen she was very special to our dog Jenny. I know because Jenny was so happy being with Karen when we picked her up, she looked like she wanted to stay longer.
Karen is so sweet and friendly and is very well knows about what a dog needs. Health wise as well as love.
I strongly recommend Karen for your pet.dog.

Karen took great care of our senior dog for 2 weeks and made sure he was comfortable and given opportunities to exercise. She was sensitive to the hot temperatures and made sure he exercised when it was cool. Karen is a great communicator; she spoke with us before the reservation was complete and made sure that our dog was a good fit. She was also helpful when we had to change the reservation. During our time away from our dog, she sent photos and texted whenever she had questions.

We needed a pet sitter on short notice for fourth of July. Came across dog vacay and found Karen. She took great care of our pup Cooper. She took him to the dog park and kept us updated throughout the day of his care. She sent us pics to let us know how he was doing. He's very energetic as he is a puppy but Karen is very well trained and experienced with dogs of all ages an breeds. We definitely would recommend her too friends in need of a sitter. Would love to have her watch Coopie again sometime.
