About Carleen

60 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm young retired woman,I have worked in Medicine for 30 years. Now I'm looking to make extra money, loving animals is the best. I enjoy walking and being outside. I have had animals my whole life even while raising children. Currently I live in Encino, and have a nice sized backyard if you would like to bring your animals to me. I would be happy to come to your home where animals usually are most comfortable. Lets get together and see if we are a match. I also can administrate injections and give oral medications.

I was very happy with my dog's stay with Carleen. She responded quickly to messages and sent a few photos of Bear and kept me posted. She also was flexible with pick up and drop off times. I would definitely use her again. Thank you!
Carlene was a delight to work with at every stage of the arrangement. I met with her before the time away and she could not have been more accommodating and eager to take care of LUNA. I hgighly recommend her to anyone wishing to have a peace of mind whilst away from their beloved pets.
Carleen clearly loves dogs, and took great care of Bijou who left wagging her tail and happy.
Charleen is absolutely fantastic. She takes such good care of my dog. I never worry when she watches him.
Carlene is very nice and easy going. Just walked in and out basically. House is small but my dog was just fine when I picked her up
Carleen was happy to see Amber again, and Amber was happy to see Carleen!
Carleen is working with Amber to be better behaved. I can see the difference and am so grateful.
It was great experience to know my dog was in a home setting with other dogs and that he is getting more personal attention than your ordinary dog hotels. I received a picture of my dog while I was away and felt assured that he was okay. Carleen is a wonderful lady and I felt comfortable leaving my dog in her care!
Carleen was great! She sent me photos and kept me updated on Brody. He seemed happy there. :)
Carleen is a very kind lady and my dog Cash immediately took to her! There was a bit of confusion on pick-up but Carleen reached out to me by phone and did her best to make things right, which was very much appreciated! The next time I'm in the area and I need a dog-sitter, I will gladly book Carleen again.
Carleen is very kind and thoughtful. Her care and love for dogs gave me so much comfort while I was away. She has been my best dogvacay experience so far! Thank you Carleen.
Carleen was a wonderful sitter for our dog while we were on vacation. She seems to understand dogs very well and is really good with them. Thank you Carleen!
Carleen is so awesome! Caring and careful with the dogs, I'd trust her with my pooch any time!
Carleen was great with Amber, even fixing her up with her own retreat in the garage when Amber had issues. Now that Amber has more training I'm eager to see how she gets along at Carleen's this month when I have to travel.
Our experience with Carleen was wonderful. She took very good care of our pups. I will definitely use her again. Thank you Carleen!
so good with my "special needs" (very high strung)dog
Mr. Jones and I love Carlene! He played with all of her dogs and learned a lot. I also learned how to keep his barking at bay. Carlene is a wonderful puppy sitter and trainer. She sent over photos and text updates throughout the day. She's great!
This was Nikko's first sleepover at Carleen's house. I am very protective of my rescued Husky Shepherd mix and was happy to feel the warmth Carleen was sending me and Nikko. Everything is clean and organized and I felt great when I left Nikko with her. I knew he had a great time from the pictures she sent me later on with his furry new friends.

Thank you Carleen for taking such good care of my boy.
Nikko is looking forward to his next sleepover.
Carleen is an exceptional host. she's also a good trainer;Zoe learned a lot from her. We observed Zoe enjoyed her weekend.
We are very satisfied how Carleen took care of Zoe.
Now, I'm bringing Zoe back to her this coming Thursday for an overnight stay.
Carleen is the best! Dudley loves his time there and I love knowing that he's being well-cared for while I'm out of town. Thanks Carleen!!
My dogs really enjoyed their time at Carleen. She took such good care of them!
Carleen was amazing! It was such a huge relief to be able to travel knowing my Quincy was in good hands and not having to put him in a pet hotel where he'd be crated. She kept me updated with pictures of him. Carleen was very accommodating with my schedule and have already booked with her next month. I highly recommend her for anyone who needs her services!!
What a fabulous experience start to finish! Carleen was amazing - she cleaned my pup's eyes and snapped a pic even before I left town! This is truly a "doggy resort." My 5lb. Maltese was so happy when I picked her up, and Carleen's co-host, a MaltiPoo named Cuddles, was so friendly. A+++!
Carleen was great. She was always responsive to my various questions. Her house is perfect for watching doggies. Cocoa was so happy there. I will definitely use her again!!
Carleen took excellent care of Zoe! A true doggie vacay!
Carleen was great! I took my 5-month old German Shepherd puppy to stay with Carleen while I was at work for a couple of days. Being the first time that my puppy stayed anywhere outside of our home, I was immediately relieved to see how much Carleen genuinely cares for dogs, and how knowledgeable and experienced she is. I felt safe leaving my pup in her hands. My pup was a little overwhelmed initially being away from home and around other dogs, but Carleen did everything to make her feel safe and to ease her puppy anxiety. In the end, I picked up a happily worn out puppy and I can't thank her enough for that.
Loved this place for our dogs - Carleen is loving, kind, patient, and very good with the dogs. She listened to all our instructions so that we were comfortable. Our dogs were happy and had a good time. We felt very comfortable and confident that our dogs were in good hands and well taken care of, and we did not worry. She even sent us a picture of our dogs relaxed and happy in her home. Great place, we will use her again, and we highly recommend her!
Carleen is the B E S T !!!
She stayed at our home and took great care of our
2 golden retrievers and 4 cats. She fed them, cleaned up after them, talked to them, walked them, and gave them love while we were gone. She was neat and clean, dependable and reliable !
What more can I say ? We would definitely recommend her and would for sure utilize her services again !
My little girl's visit was for 4 days. Throughout her visit I recieved photos of her cuddling with Carleen which went a LONG way!! My little dog can be a handful and sometimes a little clingy to me but when I dropped her off she went right to Carleen and scratched to be picked up...I mean right away. This gal obviously loves dogs and my dog certainly took to her! I'm taking her again for an entire week and I absolutely wont worry for a second!!!
Ruby had a great weekend! She was in very good spirits when we returned and I could tell she had been lovingly cared for and all her needs met. We would definitely leave Ruby with Carleen again the next time we have to go out of town.
Carleen is terrific I had a last minute work trip come up and she was able to make it work and took great care of my little guy!! We'll be back! !
Very convenient and easy to use. Carleen is a great host. I have three more dates scheduled and will set up more when I know my plans.
A fine home away from home for Zeke the dog. Much thanks.
Carleen was just wonderful .... accommodating, caring, loving .. We'll be back. ..
Great home! She's clearly very caring and loving and my little man OBVIOUSLY had a great time with all the other new friends, lol. He slept like a rock for 36 hrs afterwards which he only does when playing all day and night with other buddies :-)
Good experience for the pooch and I. Left him and he was happy and healthy when I returned. Carlene is sweet and kind. She knows how to handle dogs well.
Peaches always has a great time with Carleen!
Carleen was fabulous, generous, patient and all around great. She helped enormously, even continuing the training I had started with a new dog. And she was not at all flustered when my plane was 3 hours late and I couldn't get to her when I had originally said I would.
Sasha came back raving about the friends she made while staying with Carleen. She had a great time and is looking forward to another stay in the future! Thanks Carleen!
Carleen is such a sweet lady, you can tell she really cares, she even sent me a nice status update to let me know how my dog was doing, which was much appreciated. I will definitely go to her again in the future.
Easy to set up the appointment with, and my dog was very happy! Sent pics to let me know he was doing well and left a happy camper!
My dog Austin had a great day with Carleen. She was so kind and thoughtful. She sent me pics and updates throughout the day. I felt very relaxed at work knowing that Austin was doing well. He came home happy and tired. I highly recommend her!!
Carleen took good care of our dog and gave us updates & photos while we were away from her. Will use her again!
Carleen was great! She was very quick to respond to my original request to place my 2 babies with her and explained her process up front. When I arrived to drop off my furbabies, she showed me around, explained her "safe zones" for the dogs and allowed them to get comfortable. She kept me informed of their progress while I was away and assured me that they were doing just fine. It was a great experience having my pups vacay with Carleen and I will definitely be utilizing her services again in the future!
Carleen is probably one of the best sitters I've had for Deen in the years that Ive been on this site. She really cares about Deen and is all about giving TLC.

I look forward to using her again in the future (and I actually already have another booking with her.)

Thanks, Carleen!!!
Carleen is thoughtful and very knowledgeable about dogs. Our dog unexpectedly had a medical condition and Carlene assumed responsibility for ministering pills without any qualms. We would certainly use her again.
I can't say enough about Carleen. We were looking for someone we knew Peaches would feel right at home with and after meeting with Carleen there wasn't a doubt in our minds Peaches would be safe and happy.
We had to leave Peaches in Carleen's care for a weekend and I can't think of anyone better to watch your pet while away. She made sure to send us pictures of Peaches and give us updates on how she was doing.
Carleen was so kind and loving and it showed when we picked up Peaches. We've had people watch Peaches before and she would show some anxiety but that was not the case with Carleen.
I highly recommend Carleen and will definitely use her again when we need someone to watch Peaches!
Carleen is warm and attentive. We've already booked her for our next vacation!
Fantastic, flexible and overall great. Will use again!
Carleen was WONDERFUL with my dog. If she is available, I will always send her there. She is very diligent with photo updates, very pleasant to communicate with, very accommodating, and her love for dogs is very obvious. My dog didn't want to leave when it came time to pick her up!
Carleen is wonderful! Not only did she take amazing care of my two doggies, but she came through in a pinch when we had a change in plans and had to board the dogs with 2 days notice. She's a great host and very accommodating. Thanks Carleen!
