About Karen

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have retired from the medical field last year and now have plenty of time to pursue my real passion: Pets. I have owned and cared for dogs and cats for over 30 years. My home is in an ideal area for long walks , I have a sunny deck for lounging and a dedicated playroom with outdoor access. A typical day at Bark & Play will include long walks and lots of attention.

PLEASE NOTE: All pets must be dropped off BEFORE 9 PM and picked up no later than 9 PM. At Meet and Greet please have proof of vet visit within last 6 mos. Fees are for 24 hrs.. Late charge of one day for late pick-up.
HOME VISITS; I can only do home visits (for cats only) in my neighborhood of Crossroads Village.

Karen was a fantastic dog-sitter! She took my dog for multiple walks a day, kept him company, and even gave him his ear medicine. She also kept me abreast of his status via multiple pictures and texts a day describing how he was doing and what he did during the day. My dog was happy to see me when I went to pick him up, but I could tell he also enjoyed his stay with Karen! I will recommend her to anyone I know who needs a sitter, and will likely be a return customer.

Karen was a wonderful host to our dog, and put our mind at ease by sending regular updates and pictures of his stay with her. Thanks!
