About Me

My dream job as a child was to be a dog walker in New York. Well, I never made it to New York, but still love all kinds of dogs! I have worked with rescues and fostered dogs and pups in the past. One of my current dogs is a Katrina rescue! I have also worked at Petsmart as a manager. I have lots of experience in caring for all kinds of dogs. Let me open my heart and home to your best friend!

Just a few side notes, I also have 4 resident cats. My cats are used to different dogs coming into my home. They do not run away from dogs.

My yard is not fenced, but I do have tie outs, a nice walking route, and a large play area in a finished basement.

I strongly suggest treating your dog with a flea/tick treatment. I have a lot of wildlife that roams through my yard, and want everyone to stay happy and healthy. I treat my dogs and cats year round because I have dogs coming and going. You can never be too cautious.

Below are some reviews of Kari M from real dog owners who have used their services on DogVacay.com!

Average Rating:
  • Rascal had a great stay with Kari ! She is a true dog lover. I really appreciated the updates and photos throughout the week...

  • This was the first time we had Kari watch out two dogs over a long weekend. She was very accomadating & attentive to our dogs needs. The daily updates & pictures put our minds at ease knowing that our dogs were having a great time & most importantly were well cared for. We will most definately be using Kari again in the near future!

  • Kari is awesome! She and her family made Sabrina feel safe and "at home"...Sabrina's had some anxiety problems recently, and Kari was so wonderful to work with her, and take extra care with her. I am so happy to have found a caregiver who is nearby, friendly, fun and great to work with. I love the texts & pics, made me feel good to know Sabrina was happy and playing while I couldn't be with her. Sabrina will definitely be back. Would highly recommend Kari, she's the best :)

  • Another FABULOUS Overnight for Hudson. Kari was able to take Hudson on a short notice for us when our 'flooring install" got changed. As always Hudson had FUN with Kari and her Family. I would Highly recommend Kari.

  • Kari and her daughter are ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Hudson hasn't done well in the past with either in home care or at the kennel. He's Happy and still has his voice when we pick him up from Kari's. Kari keeps in contact with you via text and pictures the entire time. It's nice to know that you can be away and not have to worry. It's like leaving your dog with Family!

  • Kari was great as usual with Bear. I can tell he loves getting dropped off there.

  • Dutch's first visit with Kari went really well. I just loved how Kari text me several times to let me know how things were going. And I love Kari's sense of humor! Dutch sure wasn't lonely and seemed to love all the other companions! Thanks Kari!

  • Kari always works with my busy schedule whatever it is for dropping Sato off and I don't think I'd trust my dog with anyone else!

  • As always, Kari did a great job with our furry family! She took great care of our 2 overgrown puppies for an entire week while we were on vacation and we didn't have to worry once about them. She sent us pictures and texts letting us know how things were going so we never had to wonder if they were adjusting well. She cared for them beyond their basic creature needs (food, water, potty) and she made them feel like they were at their home away from home by playing with them and loving them. They knew they were with their auntie Kari!

  • Kari is great with Bear. She is very attentive to his needs, communicates well, and most importantly loves dogs! I would highly recommend her to anyone. I have used her services multiple times.

  • Very caring and dedicated. We will be using Kari again

  • Kari M, is awesome! It was the first time for my Lola to be with someone other than family and she did great. Kari and her Family treated Lola like one of their own. I can't thank Kari enough. I highly recommand her, like i said she is AWESOME!

  • Kari is amazing! Our dog loves going over there. Can't recommend her enough.

  • Kari was a godsend. So glad and thankful we found her. Rock was well taken care of and the daily texts were very comforting! We and Rick are looking forward to our next vacay.....already booked for the Christmas holiday. Yeah!

  • Kari did a wonderful job of introducing our dog to her house and her other pets. Clearly, she has plenty of experience with dogs and is an animal lover. We felt very comfortable leaving our dog with her for a few days. I would highly recommend Kari to dog owners in the area.

  • Kari was great. We came even a little late from traffic and she was amazing. Glad we picked her. Definitely will go back.

  • My dog was happy and non-traumatized by our absence when we picked him up. Kari seemed to really like him and to be very sweet to him. Photos and notes she sent were wonderful and elightful to get...She is really good!

  • It was the first time I did a home sitter so I was very leery at first. Kari changed my opinion and was very awesome. She brought the best out of my dog. He was very relaxed. She sent me texts and photo updates of how he was doing. I'd am definitely going to be using her again!

  • Pepi stayed with Kari from Thursday through Sunday. She gave him his own room with rugs and toys from home and I think, slept with her daughter in her room. Pepi is very shy and Kari helped him adjust to the new surroundings. Pepi made friends with her older dog and cats. She also made homemade dogs treats for him, brushed him with a furminator and walked him everyday for no extra charge! Her daughter also ran him one night, which is good because he couldn't be off leash in the yard. Kari was also very flexible about pick up time on Sunday. Oh, and the text messages and pictures were very comforting to me. She sent many everyday. I would highly recommend Kari, you can tell she loves animals and takes care of them as if they were her own. Thank you again for a good experience.

  • Excellent last minute service. Kari was very helpful as we made a last minute decision to go on a family trip. Our Falcor seemed happy and Kari kept us informed through text and e-mail how he was doing. It was very comforting. She gave him a great vacay! Thank you Kari!

  • Kari was quickly able to calm the nervous Sam down and make this whole experience easier on him and me. Her knowledge about dogs and dog behavior was very valuable in helping us figure out the best way to make him comfortable. It was great to be updated via text messages on how he was doing with pictures of him soaking in the sun or just being pampered. And of course, she was a trooper with supporting my the last minute scheduling requirements.

  • Excellent experience. Kari kept me up to date with how Callie was sleeping, eating, socializing. Glad to have found her and so is Callie!

  • Kari did a great job with our 2 pit bull mixes! I was a little worried about them being in a new place for a few days but Kari gave them extra TLC to make sure they were comfortable and happy. By the time I picked them up they were behaving better than they ever do at home :/ Thanks Kari!

  • Kari took great care of my pup while I was out of town on a weekend vacation! I received updates and pictures of my dog having fun & relaxing, which gave me great piece of mind. My main concern when leaving my dog in a new environment is that he can be skittish and fearful, but Kari new how to deal with that and won him over. I would definitely recommend her for sitting, and will be bringing my guy back!
