About Karen

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! I am a lover of dogs and cats and I like to take every opportunity to hang out with my furry friends whether that's at work or with my friends' pets.

I currently cannot host pets in my home, but I'm happy to stay over at your home to watch your dog(s) and/or cat(s). I can also come by for morning/evening walks. I do work full-time Monday-Friday from 8:30am-5pm, but I can spend plenty of time with your pets in the evening and make sure they have their regular morning/afternoon exercise. I'm open to discussing your petcare needs!

Nothing makes me happier than to see a friendly smile on a happy puppy! I'm a particular fan of Goldens (they always look so happy!), Labs, big dogs, and I also love Pit Bulls! But I will happily spend time with any breed of dog. I work at MIT for my day job and I enjoy a ton of hobbies, but my favorites are dancing, swimming, cycling, exploring the outdoors, reading, baking/cake decorating, and photography. I do some kind of exercise every day, and I'd be happy to take your dog(s) on a nice long walk or play in the park with a fun toy.

I also love kitties and will happily stay in your home with your cat, too!

We needed a dogsitter in our home last-minute and Karen came to our rescue. We squeezed in a short meet'ngreet and were very pleased with the results. Karen was relaxed around the two dogs and they responded in kind. She also thought to ask many questions about care of the house that I hadn't even thought about. We returned home to two happy and relaxed dogs, as well as a house that was cleaner than it was when we left. Karen was a great communicator and the dogs clearly loved her. We will definitely ask Karen to sit for us again!

Karen was great! I was gone a week and she kept me informed of how things where going throughout. When I returned, Rudy was not needy at all which told me she gave him lots of love and attention while I was gone. I highly recommend her!
Karen was really nice and took great care of our dog while we were away. It was the first time we had someone dog sit in our home and it worked out very well. I would recommend her to anyone - she clearly loves dogs and understands that they are all unique.

Karen is always great and our pets love her! We're so glad we found her here!
We were so pleased with Karen's work, and hope we'll be able to book her for any trips we have in the future. She stayed in our home with our dog and two cats, and was exceptionally conscientious and professional; from her first visit to meet the pets before we booked, through the 12 days we were away, and following up since we got back.

We have been fortunate to have many good pet-sitters and boarding providers in the past, but Karen stands out as one of the very best. As soon as we all met together, her genuine kindness and care for the animals was clear. She provided consistent communication while we were away to keep us informed of our pets health and well-being, and gave us the peace of mind to really enjoy our time away, knowing our pets and home were in great hands.

We heartily recommend her!

Karen came to our house to stay with Brewsky. She sent photos and kept us up to date. We came home to a very happy puppy. We will definitely be booking with Karen again!
