About Kevin & Karolina

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi!

We are a small family of 3 - me, my husband Kevin and our pup Buttercup.

I'm studying to become a dog trainer. I used to volunteer at an animal shelter and we also fostered puppies in the past. That's how we met our sweet Buttercup :) She has a great personality and loves making new friends.

Your doggie will be safe and have loads of fun. I love to take dogs for trips, walks, to dog parks, dog beach etc. Your baby will get plenty of exercise. I'm stay at home puppy mom at the moment, so your doggie will get plenty of attention and won't be left alone unless I need to go to the store, so not more than 1-2 hours.

Kevin and Karolina did such a great job with Ollie! They went above and beyond in every aspect and exceeded our expectations with such excellent service.

They are both very passionate about dogs and we're looking forward to reaching out to them again in the near future. Highly recommend!

Kevin & Karolina are wonderful and Huxley loves spending time with them and Buttercup. I was away for 11 days overseas, they kept me from worrying with multiple pics and text messages per day.
Karolina is absolutely outstanding. My little guy stayed with her many times over the last few months and was always so happy to see her. Buttercup is such a happy and sweet pup. I couldn't imagine any dog being unhappy with her as a playmate! She seems incredibly adaptable to all doggy personalities. Karolina has made my life so much better for her time while being part of it here as a dog sitter. If anyone is looking for a great house sitter - look no further! You'll love her as much as I do!!

Very communicative and easy to work with. Appreciated the flexibility. Took better photos of my dog than i do. It was great!
Kevin & Karolina were great sitters for my dog over labor day weekend. They were very flexible with drop-off and pickup times, communicative throughout the process, and sent many pics and videos of my dog having a blast with their dog, buttercup.
Kevin & Karolina are AWESOME! I'm a recent transplant to LA from the east coast and needed someone quickly to take care of my boy. Karolina was kind, interested and firm with Huxley everything he needed. They kept me updated with pics of his 4 day vacay, Huxley was clearly having a great time. When I picked him up he was happy and tired from all the play. Reserving Karolina again for another trip in a few months. I have no regrets and very happy I found them.

Karolina was a total sweetheart and my pup Teddie was quick pals with Karolinas little cutie Pumpkin. Would bring Teddie here anytime and know she is in great hands!
Karolina is amazing!! She watches my senior dog, Maxwell, regularly. It is difficult to find people that I trust with him. He is older and can sometimes be whiny, has severe separation anxiety and as an older dog really just wants to have a person around. Karolina is not only one of the sweetest people I've ever met, she is extremely conscientious. She is very knowledgeable about what dogs need and she is constantly watching them, looking for any signs of distress or behavioral issues. She works harder than anyone I've ever let Maxwell stay with. She is caring and loving towards all of the dogs she watches. She really gives them her whole heart and makes sure they feel the love they would feel from their own pet mom or dad. My husband and I knew the moment we met her that she was a very kind, honest and good hearted person and that we could trust her to the moon and back with our fur baby! We feel very lucky we found her. Don't hesitate to book with her!

Karolina is amazing! Our pup loves going to here for daycare and he is always taken very good care of. Both Karolina and Kevin are very nice and caring and really go out of their way to make our pup have a great stay but also to make us very comfortable that are leaving our little guy in good hands (we get status updates and pics). Thanks so much!

amazing! on such short notice, my pup, Amber fell in love with both of them and their pup, Buttercup. :) the dogs immediately played and I too gained trust and felt comfortable leaving my Amber with them for the weekend. I highly recommend....
Karolina is an amazing sitter she loves dogs and it shows. You can leave your pup with her knowing that it'll be in safe and loving hands.;
Great host! Flexible and a dog lover! Zola really enjoyed her vacation We wil be back .
Kevin and Karolina are very sweet couple! They took my dog to the dog park and send me photos of their sweet moments totally melt my heart! And it is nice to see my dog have a little friend as company when we can not be there~
Karolina is the best dog sitter I could ever imagine. She sent me the most adorable photos of my little one! Teddy had such a blast with Buttercup and his new friends. He was taken to a doggie event at Healthy Spot, a pretty park in Playa Vista, fun daily walks, and even to happy hour with her husband at an awesome pet friendly place in West Hollywood! I could tell how much fun Teddy had because he had a whole day of mourning and missing his sweet babysitter and his new friends. Karolina even gave Teddy a bath and brushed him fluffy before I picked him up

Karolina and Kevin were amazing to our little guy Zeus. We had some hesitation to use doggy vacay, as this was our first time leaving for an extended trip on top of the fact he is a rescue and naturally somewhat skeptical of new people. Despite our worries, he had a great stay. We received lots of pictures, videos and updates, which help relieve any initial concerns.

Pickup/drop off and other logistics were a breeze. Karolina even gave Zeus a bath and he smelled amazing when we picked him up. We're not sure he was ready to leave.

We had a great experience and highly recommend Karolina and Kevin to anyone who needs a dog sitter. We will definitely use them again in the future. Thank you!

I just moved from across the country with my little guy and started a new job immediately. The change was really hard on my dog and it was important to find someone that he was able to really connect with to help with the transition. I couldn't be happier with Kevin and Karolina. Karolina is incredibly sweet and responsive to all messages. Buddy came back happy after every visit and I noticed at the end of the week that he was looking back at her as we drove away. It makes me so happy to see him stress free. I couldn't thank them enough!

Karolina was wonderful and warm from the beginning, from ease of scheduling to keeping me informed about Milo's well-being. Milo loved his stay with them, and didn't want to come home! Karolina sent regular photos and videos of Milo running around, playing with their adorable dog, and sleeping with a smile on his face. Kevin and Karolina were everything you want in a dog sitter, and I would not hesitate to book with them!

Karolina and Kevin took such great care of my pom/chi Nova! They paid very close attention to all my pups needs and I received plenty of photo and video updates through the trip. They even checked in to see how she was doing after the vacay! We will definitely be coming back soon :)

I have used many dog watching services over the last 9 years and I would very highly recommend Karolina and Kevin! They took amazing care of our pup and were very approachable and friendly. The level of attention and care was impressive and I would strongly recommend you consider them. I would trust that you will be as impressed as we are.

Karolina is absolutely great. I was struggling to find someone last minute to take care of my yorkie Tootie. The person I was going to use canceled last minute. As a dog owner, this can be a very stressful situation.She agreed to take care of Tootie with just a couples hours notice. I completely felt relieved. She was great with updating me on Tootie's where about and sending photos. When I picked Tootie up she looked and smelled great too!!!. I will definitely use her again in the future. Thanks so much Karolina!!!!

Kevin and Karolina were the most amazing hosts! They were so wonderful to my little guy while I was away. I will definitely use them when ever I travel in the future. They made sure to keep Moose busy and he got along so well with their little Buttercup. They also sent pictures everyday of the puppies playing.
