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.

She was great! Very easy-going and flexible. She gave updates with pictures and text messages. Very kind as well.
This was 1st time I tried DogVacay. After the meet and greet. I felt confidence that Spirit would be taken care of. It was very difficult for me to be separated from him since he is my Emotional Support Dog and was going for a Knee Replacement. be separated from him since he is my Emotional Support Dog and was going for a Knee Replacement. Karen did have another dog to care for when i drop him off. I was taken back for i did not know how they would work out. But it did. work out good and sent and photos of spirit. For my future
bookings would prefer him to be only dog. since he a support dog for me and I have less stress . Spirit is a rescue and only been together 1 yr. I recommend Karen and will use her again for sure..
