About Karen

50 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Do you want your pet to have the same love and care when you are away as they have at home? Then bring them to the Doggy Grandma. Hi! I’m Karen and I have cared for many, many “furry children”. I also have more than twenty years experience in caring for “special needs” dogs such as those that need to be medicated one or more times daily for seizure disorder, diabetes, thyroid problems, arthritis, etc. I am retired so I am home all day to play with or comfort your pet. We have a large fenced-in yard (which is cleaned weekly) for your pet to enjoy play time. My daughter (who lives in the same house but in a separate area) has a young Bassett hound. However, your pet will have the yard to themselves as we let them out separately. Please note that I normally take only one dog at a time unless there are two or three from the same family in order to provide the very best care and safety for your pet(s). So if my calendar is marked "Booked " or "Unavailable", it means that I already have a reservation for those dates. I am located in Boothwyn, Pennsylvania—about eight miles from the Philadelphia airport—one mile off PA exit 1 of I95. Come and visit and bring your pet. We would love to show you how we can provide a worry-free vacation for you. I also provide day care for those who work and have pets with separation anxiety. Vet references available.

Karen is great! Our dogs like her place.
Karen is the best care giver ever. She is flexible for drop off and pick up and loves animals. We are so happy we found her. She sent us a pic and update while we were away. It was nice that she adds that personal touch. Since Maia is a 3 yr old golden with boundless energy, I was glad to hear her granddaughters could stop by to play with her. We have a big 2 wk trip to Europe coming up this summer and we know Maia will be in good hands the whole time. We found Maia's home away from home.
