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.

We planned a family vacation last minute and our regular sitter and backup were both unavailable. We met Karen a few days before our trip. She had a great personality and love for animals. We instantly felt very comfortable with her. On our trip we received updates when she arrived and what activities were taking place and pictures of our fur babies.
It's difficult to find people you'd leave your babies and home to but I would recommend Karen as a very reliable sitter.
Thanks Karen!

Karen was amazing with our sweet Lollie girl! We were completely pleased with how she cared for our dog. She was able to accommodate that our dog does not like other dogs and Karen agreed to only watch her for the 4 days we needed help. She was also able to successfully administer the allergy pill Lollie takes. We would definitely choose Karen again for any future doggie sitting needs and would highly recommend her to anyone.

Very, very reliable, kept us posted each day with text and snapshots. I never once worried while Karen was staying with Abbey in our home. And the house was neat as a pin when we got back 6 days later. I cannot thank her enough for allowing me to have a worry free vacation. And Abbey liked her too!
