About Cari

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
All Breeds Welcome! I have been operating my own dog training business since 2009. In the past year, I have expanded into dog walking (which puts me out of the house 4-6 hours a day) boarding, and board and train. I also co-operate an animal rescue, All They Need is Love. I have tons of space in my house and a giant heart for dogs. My neighborhood is incredible for dogs walks, and my backyard is secure for playing. Being a member of IACP (International Association of Canine Professionals) and a graduate of ABC (Animal Behavior College), I am quite knowledgeable on dogs and their behaviors. With this background, I am very efficient with handling difficult dogs. I love all dogs and can't wait to spend time with your four-legged family member.
While in my home, your dog(s) are sure to have a great time. If they get along with other dogs then they will get to play with each other for a good amount of the day. If they prefer not to play with dogs, they get to play with me! For safety when they can not be supervised and bedtime they will be crated and all separated.

Cari provided a fun and inviting stay for our dog. She was a pleasure to deal with and we would definitely use her again.
We left our two border collie pups for their first weekend stay with Cari and couldn't have been more happy with the experience. She was great about communicating with us d was super e accommodating to ouairline t travetroublesns. The pups seemed to have a great time and hardly acted as though they missed us at all. We would definitely recommend Cari.
Cari was welcoming and friendly and flexible with pick up/drop off times. My dog looked happy in the picture she sent playing with her own dogs. Thanks!
Cari was great! She provided a safe and fun environment for my pup while providing regular updates. I will for sure be a repeat customer.
Cari took great care of Georgia, our 2 year old, 45 pound, rescue/mixed breed pup! We appreciate the confidence Cari exhibits as a trainer and experienced caregiver for pets, including her cautious approach to introducing Georgia to her family (humans and pets!). Georgia came home happy and healthy after her week-long "vacay" with Cari. We would book with Cari again.
Cari did a great job keeping our dog Charlie for us while we were away on vacation for a week. She has other dogs in the house & was very careful to make slow introductions to ensure there'd be no problems. Charlie loves playing with other dogs so we were happy knowing he'd have playmates while we were away. She sent us periodic updates on how he was doing so we wouldn't worry & was very responsive to any questions we had. It was a terrific experience for both us & Charlie!
After meeting Cari and her gang of fur kids, I knew that she was the one I would have care for my 2 year old rescue, Cooper. I scheduled a day visit for a tryout. Cari kept me up to date how the day was going by sending me photos and even a video! It was obvious Cooper was having a great time, and at ease. I expected that he would be ecstatic when I picked him up, but instead he was simply calm and happy to see me. He slept soundly the remainder of the day and evening. We have a weekend stay scheduled and I am confident that Cari's Canine College is the best place for Cooper. I highly recommend Cari!
Considering this was the first time Frieda has been away from home and very attached to us, Cari was the perfect sitter for her. Frieda played Houdini and kept trying and finally escaping her crate but Cari allowed her the freedom she was craving after realizing she was good when out of her bounds alone. Frieda didn't necessarily enjoy the other dogs because she thinks she is a human and enjoyed her play time with Cari best. Frieda was thrilled to see us when we picked her up but jumped up on Cari as well as us showing us she cared for Cari as well and wanted her to know how exited she was. She came home relaxed and fell back in her normal routine at home easily. I highly recommend Cari for high maintenance Dogs. She loves the dogs and it shows.
Wow Cari is the best! She took our 1 year old puppy for 3 days and treated her like her own. She sent pictures and videos to keep our worried minds at ease and answered all of our question quickly. We will be using Cari for ALL of our boarding needs in the future and would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone who needs someone to look after their dog/s while they are away!!!
Thank you Cari! The dogs had a great vacation at your house. You are the best:)
Fantastic job on a last-minute, emergency request.
My 2 cocker spaniels stayed with Cari for an entire week. She was such a wonderful caretaker and trainer. She was patient and kind and used her skills as a trainer to help them socialize with other dogs. They seemed very happy at her home. She also made sure to keep me updated on how they were doing. I would highly recommend Cari for anyone's pet!!!
Cari was extremely warm, professional and offered both my dogs all the comforts of home! I had no worries leaving them with her whatsoever and this was the first time that I had to leave them overnight with someone other than family. She lives in a beautiful home and has a schedule that she maintains with the dogs and clearly makes them part of the family. She is also a dog trainer and was able to offer me some insight/feedback about my one dog who has had some difficulty with house training. I did not have to worry about my dog having an accident as Cari is used to this and assured me that she would not punish my dog. My boys came home so happy and I could tell they were well loved! I would definitely recommend Cari and actually have recommended her to two of my neighbors already!! I will also use her again without hesitation!
