About Carina

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
20% discount for military and their families. Message me *BEFORE BOOKING* for details.

I grew up with German Shepherds and a Pitbull mix but now have only one sweet pug and I'm missing all the running, playing, and fun that comes with bigger pups. We also have one shy cat. Over the years I've had every kind of non-scaly pet you can think of: dogs, cats, birds large and small, ferrets, hamsters, guinea pigs, actual pigs. We're just all-around animal lovers.

We're a quiet household – it's more of a doggy sleepover than a kennel situation. Dogs will be indoors during warmer day time hours and let out for as long as they like in the evenings. We don't leave dogs outside unattended. My home has vinyl laminate flooring (easy to clean!) with carpet in the bedrooms. We also have one unused room that doubles as a pet hotel if your little one requires some privacy. Pets sleep wherever they like – some sleep on the couch, some in the bed, some in their crates. Our yard is large for the area, fully fenced with sheltered spots around the perimeter of the structure.

I offer discounts for multiple dogs and extended stays. Message me for details.

Please notify me BEFORE booking if your pup has any behavioral issues. I am comfortable with all breeds but unfortunately my community authority restricts the breeds we can have in our area. I can't care for pitbulls, rotweilers, presa canarios, or any pit mix :(

Great, as always! Our pup really enjoys her time with Carina and we feel calm knowing she's being loved and well taken care of.
First time using this service, Carina and her husband were amazing! We would for sure like to use them again. Made our little buddy feel right at home as we were away for the holidays! -Scott
Carina was great and fabulous to work with. Was seemless and dogs looked very happy when we got them. Will definitely use again!
Super nice and friendly . Very clean and roomy space for the dogs with a back yard. We were late returning due to traffic and she didn't complain. Best dog sitter ever you can tell she really cares.
Great host!! Very flexible on drop off/pick up! She has watched my dogs multiple times. I recommend Carina!! :)
Always a great time and great care for our little fur ball.
Carina was great she treated my pups as though they were her own. She also sent me picture update on how they were doing. Will definitely use her again in the future :)!
Carina did an excellent job of looking after our high energy dog. She was available for drop off and pickup at our convenience and was most helpful in the transitions. The premises are neat and clean. The yard, whilst a bit small, was likewise well kept and more than adequate for exercise. It was easy to see that our dog was happy and well cared for there. We have no problem giving Carina our highest recommendation!
Carina watched my dogs a couple times and was always very accomodating with drop off/pick up times. Highly recommended!!
Carina is great with the boys. I would recommend her.
Carina was great with our two energetic puppies. Thanks Carina! We'll be back our next vacation!
Daphne had a great time with Carina and her family. Carina was great about keeping us informed about Daphne all weekend. Drop off and pick up were very easy. We'll be happy to have Daphne stay again!
Thank you very much! My dog usually needs anxiety meds while we are gone, but Kisha enjoyed her stay and was comfortable right away, so she didn't need her meds at all. She was the happiest and healthiest I've ever seen her when I picked her up ☺️
Anna has stayed with Carina many times! We love her!
Love love love!
Carina was OK. Throughout the experience I though she did a great job. It wasn't until afterwards that I realized something was wrong. When I got my dog home I saw that he was completely covered in mats. It was as if no one ran their hands through his fur the whole time he has there. I have a long haired dog, so small mats are not uncommon, but the mats were so bad he cried while I tried to get them out. I just wish that it was communicated to me. I would have paid to have her brush him, but not a single word was mentioned about the problem.
Carina kept our energetic, 2 yr old pug mix, Brute, between June 6th and June 26th. She was flexible about our extended vacation date, responded immediately to all my texts and is calm, gracious, accommodating and professional. Brute responds to her enthusiastically and he came home happy and healthy. Within three weeks Carina also changed his behavior from cat aggressive to cat tolerant! We hope she is available when we need pet sitting services in the future. Thanks again, Carina
Carina cared for our lab for 10 days. Our lab came back happy and healthy. Was very accommodating for meet up times and pick up + drop off scheduling.
Our pooch can be shy, but she took to Carina immediately. Now it's like our dog has a second home.
Thank you for taking care of Sheila. We know she loves you.
Carina was great. Very accommodating, very sweet - I know she loved on my dog all weekend and likewise. :) Thank you, Carina! We will definitely be back!
Carina took great care of our dog. We will definitely be back! :)
Very friendly and very professional. Easy to work with and takes great care of my dog. Recommend to everyone who has DoD base access.
Carina is very nice and send emails and pictures of my pets while staying with her.
Carina was great! Very flexible and military friendly.
Carina was great and able to accommodate me with caring for my three pups. They were happy and stress free when I returned from my Vacay!
Everything was great
Carina was very polite and accommodating and kept in contact with us and was easy to reach. She took on the task of my very active dog and had no problem. We received pictures of our love bugs and they seem very happy and content. I definitely recommend Carina and look forward to be using her services in the future.
Carina is great! We had a pleasant meet and greet prior to our actual reservation. Her home is perfectly set up to accommodate many types of dogs (both size and activity levels)! =)

We had never left our dogs for a week before. Carina was very caring and put our minds at ease. Our younger dog is VERY attached to us and can be challenging with separation anxiety. It only took one day for her to get back into her normal routine. This has taken up to a week when we have left her for only a weekend with a family member.

I would highly recommend Carina to anyone/everyone.
Carina is really nice and understanding. I felt safe leaving my Hunny Bunny with her.
Daki loves Carina and George! He had a great time at their house... First time meeting Carina, I already knew she is good with dogs and it eased my mind knowing Daki will be taken care of while I was gone. She's awesome and George is adorable!!!
Carina was an excellent sitter for my 14 year old lab. She was very easy to reach, responding to my emails and texts immediately, and she was very accomodating to changes in my travel schedule.

Her home was ideal for my older dog, since her own dog is also older and not very active.

I wouldn't hesitate to hire her again.
Carina was awesome, as was George, her pug. Not everyone would be so willing to take in two Siberian Huskies for a day and a half. She was more than happy to accommodate them, and on short notice too. A real life saver, and she even offered a military discount on top of an already great price. From drop off to pick up, she handled everything really well. A huge "Thank you" to Carina. Would certainly recommend and be using again in the near future.
Carina was great! She was very flexible with the meet and greet and drop off. Carina treated my dogs as her own and both came home very happy and well taken care of. I will be using Carina again soon! :)
The boys did great and even made sure they said goodbye to Carina before we left. Will definitely use her again.
Carina is very conscientious and my dog enjoys staying with her. I feel very fortunate to have such a wonderful caregiver for my fur baby!
EXTREMELY grateful for Carina! She was able to accommodate me last minute and sent me picture and texted me to up update me on my big guy! Definitely will use her again and recommend her!
Carina was an excellent sitter for Einstein. When we returned to pick him up he had his toys everywhere and seemed right at home.
My dogs loved the stay, especially with the magnificent George, the pug. All got along great. Would recommend. Thank you, Carina!
