About Karen

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there!

I am a dog-loving, female, working professional in my late 20s. I would absolutely love to adopt my own four-legged best friend, but the next couple years of my life might have some big changes and I don't think I can make the commitment yet. Caring for your best-friend while you're away is like the next best thing for me! I will care for your pet as if they were my own. I live in a safe and cute neighborhood in Santa Monica with lots of fun places to walk to and explore. I'm very responsible and have lots of experience caring for animals. I work in an extremely dog friendly office with other dog lovers where your pet is sure to have a blast.

Service Details:
Daycare- $15 for a half day and $30 for a full day (up to 10 hours). Additional fee of $10 will apply if picked up after 10 hours.

Boarding- $55 per night (check-in is at 2pm and check-out is at 11am). Additional half or full day daycare fees may apply if dropped off early or picked up late. I'm reasonable and flexible so we can work out something that's fair/meets you needs :)

I look forward to meeting you and your pet!

Karen's work and apartment are very close to one another. She has a very dog-friendly work environment where she can take a pup easily and also has the ability to go home to check on your pup if they are at her place frequently as well. Not ready to take on the long term commitment of having her own pup she loves dogs and would love the responsibility of taking care of other pups while she contemplates the timing of getting her own one day.
Karen was incredibly thoughtful in caring for our slightly anxious chi/terrier mix. She made sure our dog had people to socialize with, was kept happy, comfortable and fed (sometimes she doesn't eat well when she's not at home). She also sent cute photo updates of our dog!
Karen was terrific! It was my first time using DogVacay and she was totally responsive and was happy to meet me in my home and then have me bring my dog over the next day so he would be familiar with her home. She is so lovely and friendly and took wonderful care of my little norwich terrier. He loved going to her office and was a very happy pup when I picked him up when I returned to LA. I loved the fact that Karen forwarded photos of my dog and was always responsive to an email when I checked in. I will certainly have her take care of my dog next time I travel!
Karen was great! Very responsive and took great care of our little pup.
Karen was great! She was very responsive and easy to coordinate with. She sent us picture updates regularly, which we loved! And we particularly appreciated all the quality time and care she lavished on our pup. We plan on trusting her with our dog again!
Karen was great with our puppy Marlow! Very sweet and responsive. Will use again!
Karen is so sweet and took my dog to her work every day where she got extra attention. She is awesome!
Lots of pictures, great stay over all, will definitely use again
Karen was such a great puppy sitter! I was constantly getting updates, photos, videos - truly felt like I didn't leave Lou for the weekend. Lou felt right at home when we walked in, and they seem to have had a really great time together. Will definitely use Karen again, and recommend her to friends!
Karen was really wonderful with Rusty! He was very comfortable with her and was still happy to run around her house even when I got there to pick him up. Would definitely book with her again!
Karen was so wonderful with our dog, Blake! She took him to brunch, took him for walks on the beach, etc. She made us feel so at ease knowing he was so well taken care of! We will definitely use Karen again and recommend her to anyone! She was great!
