Flexible, reliable and wonderful. We love knowing Otto has someone who truly cares about him during his time with Karen.
We love how dependable Karen is!
Always a 5 star review! Responsive, flexible, and Otto always come home tired out from a fun day of play!
We don't know what we would do without Karen, Otto is always in the best hands.
We love Karen's flexibility!
Karen was just great with my 2 yr old German Shepard girl, Pumpkin Pie. She has a lovely home and many furbabies of her own. I know Pumpkin is well taken care of, safe, loved, and having a fun day while I am at work.
Karen is great! Very accommodating and flexible! She was very responsive during my pup's stay and sent us photos throughout the day to keep us updated. We really enjoy having Karen as our pup's new friend!
First stay with Karen for Dewey went very well.He was with several other dogs in her home, and did fine. Although it was a short visit, I am sure we will use her services again soon.
(note: same review for split reservation). Absolutely perfect. Karen was fantastic from the initial contact, through the meet and greet and throughout the whole time my dogs stayed with her. She was patient and understanding of each dogs' needs and would go out of her way to make sure they were comfortable and stress free. Her own dogs are very playful and friendly. I cannot recommend Karen enough for the personal treatment. I really felt she looked after our dogs as if they were her own. We will continue to use here services any time we are away.

Karen was a pleasure to work with! We had a unique ask by asking Karen to watch the dog during the ceremony and cocktail hour of my client's wedding and then to take him home to overnight care. She had no problem going with the flow and remaining professional. Would highly recommend.

Karen gave our dogs a welcoming caring home to stay in. She was wonderful with the dogs and I would highly recommend her.
Absolutely fabulous! Karen is wonderful and truly knows how to care for dogs. She had excellent communication with us throughout the week and took time to make sure our dog was happy and so comfortable in her home. A great place to leave your pets! Thanks Karen, we will definitely leave our dog there again.

Karen was amazing pics, videos, daily updates and lots of love to our Sadie!! Best experience with a dog sitter ever!! Home is immaculate and welcoming.. Simply perfect!!
Karen took excellent care of our cat while we were away. She came to our house every day and emailed us with daily updates and pictures! We highly recommend Karen.
First, our deaf westie boy Otis is over 15, now blind, his immune system is failing,so he is getting more skin problems, sores and now an ear infection, plus he will lick his infection without the cone. We love him so much.

So we were so pleasantly relieved when we met Karen and her pack. He did fine with all of them, in fact youngest was rather protective of Otis. Then Karen melted my heart when she scooped him up to hold him. We knew we had nothing to worry about and could enjoy the our of state family wedding. Karen sent us pics of Otis' vacay, and let us know she did treat his ear and eyes, and gave him vinegar baths for his skin. Karen gave him such wonderful care. We would call her again if we need to travel. Otis loved his visit!
