About Karina

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm Karina and being a Dog Owner, a Dog Behaviorist and a dog lover made me decide to dedicate my time to animal care. When staying with us your dog will become part of our family!

We will go for walks, supervised playtime and after it all, resting is part of our boarding.

The elderly guys have a special place in our home too.

We will keep your dog’s schedule and routine. If necessary, we’ll also take your dog to appointments with grooming and/or vet’s.

And to make it easier for you we’ll send pictures of your buddy daily activities.

We're looking forward to meeting your dog!

Requirements:

- Are your dogs friendly with other dogs and people? Are they willing to share toys and space?

- Dogs must have Rabies, DHLPP and Bordetella shot. And they also must be on an effective flea and tick control program and free of internal parasite (fecal exam required annually).

* Look for Bella's Pack on Facebook!

* Fees will change during Holidays.

My dog had a great time during her second (6 night) stay at Karina's. Brie was excited to be back with her hosts and friends. She ran to greet her with a wagging tail (rare occurrence with non-family members). I received daily updates, pictures, and videos about how she was doing. Karina's home has plenty of outdoor space for the dogs to play in. Brie was in no rush to leave when we came to pick her up. That tells me that she was treated wonderfully and loved her home away from home. We would definitely recommend Karina if you want a trusted, caring, knowledgeable sitter for your dog!!

My dog had a great time during her week-long stay with Karina! She was well taken care of, well fed, and had plenty of daily exercise and opportunities to socialize with other dogs. Karina even gave her a bath prior to her return to home. I received daily pictures and videos of my dog looking as happy as one can be. I felt at ease that my little girl was in good hands! We would definitely leave her with Karina again. Thank you for taking such good care of Brie!

After years of staying with family only, we recently boarded our 6 year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel with Karina and we could not have been happier. She was knowledgeable in how to best care for him, particularly given that it was his first boarding experience. She even sent us photos where we could see he was right at home and doing well. It made us so happy and so relieved that we could relax while we were away and know our little guy was in the best of hands. I absolutely recommend Karina and plan to make another reservation again soon.

Thanks to Karina I was able to enjoy my vacation without worrying about my 9 year old lab, Grace. We were away for 10 days and Grace had a great time. Karina sent a video and photos of Grace so I good see that she was enjoying herself and felt very comfortable staying with Karina. I highly recommend her and will be using her in the future.

Karina is very conscientious and is great with dogs of all types, but our older dog really, really loves her! She always goes above and beyond expectations in caring for our pet and keeping us informed of how she's doing while we're away.
My golden retriever loves to stay w/Bella's Pack and is so happy to see Karina when she arrives. She doesn't mind me leaving her and is truly excited about my vacations as well as her own! Woof woof...
It is very important to know your best friend is well taken care of while you are away. Karina hosted our dog in her home for a week while we went overseas. She provided a great care for our puppy. It is important in life to do what you love. Karina loves dogs and she cares about them as her own.
I would highly recommend Karina to every dog parent for a dog care.
Thank you again Karina.

This was Cedar's second stay with Karina and Bella's Pack, a longer stay and it was wonderful. I could tell when I came to pick him up how happy and acclimated he was. It was so nice to receive Karina's updates and photos while I was away. It's clear to me that Karina loves dogs, and is very good at keeping a happy, well-organized, mellow pack. I'm grateful We'll be back!

I had a wonderful experience with Karina and Bella's Pack and plan to be a repeat customer. From our initial communication, to the meet & greet and actual stay, Karina was the perfect combination of warm and professional. I appreciate her manner with dogs, her lovely, dog-friendly home, the other members of Bella's 'pack,' and now trust her with a dog who is part of my family.

When I first met Karina, I instantly felt comfortable as she is one of the most welcoming people I have ever met. I knew leaving my little girl with her in her home would not only be safe but also a loving place to stay especially with her family being away from her for such a long period of time (one day - to a dog I know it feels like weeks). Many thanks to her and her wonderful pack for making Coco feel so welcome in their home.

Karina is a great pack leader. She knows just how to relate to each dog and she makes sure that they relate well to each other. Amazing!
Bella's Pack is Paw-tastic. Our dog is 13 years old and usually has separation anxiety, but as soon as she arrived, she remembered her previous stay and was happy and very comfortable with the environment, the dogs, and their people. Karina is wonderful and very, very conscientious. Her own dogs interact well with a less active dog, and they know how to play with her at her "fitness level" Woof woof!

Pawsome doggie stay with Bella's Pack! Karina was so professional, conscientious, and caring. She kept us posted w/photos, and it was obvious when I returned that Daisy had been very comfortable there. Will definitely return.
Thank you Karina!
Ella had a wonderful time at your house. We hated to leave her for the holidays, but felt so much better knowing she was in your loving home. The daily pictures were great! Ella looked so happy in all of them. It really was a vacation for her playing with Jax and Bella!
Thank you for opening your home to Ella. Leaving her behind is the hardest part of travelling. I am grateful to have you to look after her and I know Ella is looking forward to staying with you again!
Happy New Year
Lori
