About Karina

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi There!

I am happy when a dog under my care has been on an incredible run and is well rested. When those two things are in place, a rejuvenated pup can go back to doing its job: bringing you joy.
Exercise can take the form of early morning jogs, running while I rollerblade (for medium to large dogs) or a brisk walk for the little ones. A bath is an optional, add-on service (dogs with sensitive skin or allergies ok!) and will bring out the shine in his/ her soft furry coat. And finally a nap in a comfy doggy bed (while I work from home) will keep us both company. I hope to meet you and your best friend soon.

*Fun fact
I am a full time artist and currently working on a series of dog portraits to fulfill holiday orders.

Karina demonstrates a very deep love and respect for the pets she takes care of, taking the time to get to know their personality and provide the optimum care suited to each guest. Our dog loves exercise and she got up each morning he was with her to take him out for a long run in the park in order make sure he was tired and happy. She takes the time to also communicate regularly with her pet owners during the stay to help ensure peace of mind and keep owners connected to their furry friends while they are apart.

Karina was amazing with Beckham. She truly loves dogs and it was clear in how she cared for Beckham as if it was her dog. She took Beckham for long walks and runs multiple times a day, which Beckham loves. She communicated frequently with us. Beckham did not want to leave. We will definitely use Karina again and are lucky to have found her.

When my dogs visit Karina's house, they don't want to leave. Maybe it's because of the big red GUEST dog bed, the exhilarating roller blade sessions, or the photo shoots that make them feel like an artist's muse, I'm not sure. Rest assured that your pup will be well-cared under Karina's supervision and be warned that she might even try to give them a free lesson in obedience and send you lots of pics of your dog while you're away,

Karina was such a wonderful host! Logan absolutely loved being with her, and she was so sweet with him and stayed well connected while I was away. My flight home was delayed a day and she was very flexible in pick up times and continuing to love my pup while I was away. She gave Logan lots of exercise, lots of love, and she is just genuinely so kind and caring and I would absolutely have her watch him again. Thank you for everything, Karina!!

Sugi had an excellent stay with Karina! Hey received plenty of attention and exercise- was very tired and happy on his return home. Karina provided plenty of updates during his stay- was very communicative and responsible. We would recommend her and will be planning on boarding Sugi with her on subsequent visits to the Philly area.
