About Karen

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We would love to have your pet join us while you are away. We are a dog loving family that cares for our doggy guests as if they were our own.

We live in Fallbrook and our home has a large, safe, fenced in area for dogs to play outside and they are free to roam and play anywhere inside as well.

My husband and I work from home so your pet will never be left alone. Your dogs' diet, medication needs, and all special requests will be followed exactly as directed.

While you are away you'll have full peace of mind as you'll receive regular updates with photos and videos.

Our Australian Labradoodle, Kami, is a very gracious, calm, and respectful host that can't wait to meet and play with your doggy!

Please note that boarding prices are for a 24-hour period.

Karen and Karsten took the most fabulous care of our girl, Stella! Stella, who is an 8 1/2 year old corgi/shepherd mix had never been boarded before so we were nervous as it was her first time away from home and she is also a little shy with new people. Karen and her family welcomed Stella to their home as if she was their own dog. Karen sent us regular text messages and photos of Stella's vacay and it truly showed how much they cared for her and how much she was loved. They clearly spent a lot of time with her and understood her shyness. She bonded with their beautiful dog, Kami, and obviously enjoyed hanging with the other guest dogs. The best photo we got was Stella hanging out on their couch--we then knew she was in great hands! We would definitely recommend Karen and Karsten as a great vacay place for your dog. We will certainly use them again and greatly appreciate how Stella was so well-loved and taken care of in their home.

Karen is wonderful and my little Toby came home very happy. Toby is fearful of large dogs and he spent the day with 3 large dogs so I am not sure what Karen did but I am thankful!
We were so pleased with the loving care given by Karen and her family to our 8-year old Rhodesian Ridgeback, DaVinci, on our first vacation to the Pacific Northwest that we had no hesitation trusting her with his care on our 2nd excursion. Not only were his physical and nutritional needs met, but there was a mutual appreciation between dog and family!
(Their labradoodle Kami was also a terrific hostess!)
We were especially comforted to be sent photos and updates from her on a regular basis so we could see his well-being during our trip. A wonderful, warm family!

I'm so happy I found Karen on DagVacay! My two pups are like my kids, and it's so nice to know that they're well taken care of when I drop them off. Karen's yard is large enough for the pups to run and play, there's a nice mix of grass, plants, and shade to keep them happy, and there is always someone home with them to supervise. Karen herself is very nice and fun to chat with, and kept in touch all day with pictures and texts to let me know how my pups were doing. Highly recommended!

Karen and her husband did great with our dog- highly recommended- great property for dogs to have a godd time, and a big sweet labrodoodle to play with!
I left my 7 month old Mini Goldendoodle with Karen for a day. Teddy came home happy and tired. Both Karen and her husband Carston were really good with Teddy and the other two dogs that were there. Their dog Kami, a Labradoodle, was particularly good with Teddy. I will definitely use Karen again and would recommend her as a pet sitter.

Karen is an absolutely wonderful person and I could not have had a better experience leaving my babies in someone else's care :) She was extraordinarily warm and welcoming and my pups were comfortable and happy immediately upon arrival. Her home was beautiful and spacious with plenty of room for my pups to play and be active. She kept me updated with pictures and texts through out the day to make me feel even more comfortable. It is very clear she is an animal lover through and through :) :) I would recommend her care and services to anyone who wants their doggies to be safe, happy and in the best of hands!!

They were absolutely wonderful and welcoming to both us and our dogs! It was a last minute booking and I could not have felt more at ease leaving the dogs with them! Will definitely be bringing them back at some point!!
Karen was great with our Airedale, Dakota. She was very attentive to her needs. Loved seeing the pictures see sent of Dakota.
Karen and her family were GREAT! Karen sent me daily updates and photos of my happy dogs. Thank you!
Karen and her family were wonderful. This was our first time leaving our boy and it could not have been a better experience. She sent daily updates and pictures. We felt Milo was safe and very well cared for.
Thanks again for all your help and good care of Leah.
Wonderful experience for our pet as always.
This was our second time having Karen & her family host our 2 K9 family members. I'm sure they keep her on her toes, because they are such high touch and maintenance. But she does a great job with them. They are well cared for and seem to enjoy their little vacation, as much as we do. It gives us Peace of Mind! and makes our travels much easier knowing that they are in such good hands!!!

Karen and her spouse made me feel secure about Rocky's care and well being. I think Rocky enjoyed having a playtime with Cami and that was nice as well.
Wow, how wonderful it is to know our dogs have a second home. We have come to realize they are having more fun with Karen and family than they have with us. Both of our babies are so loved and cared for, Karen must be heaven sent.

We feel so lucky to have found Karen and her family! They welcomed our dog into their home and their own furry friend was a great host. Karen was great about sending pictures, and we look forward to our dog visiting again!
Our dogs had a great time! They were rested, well loved and treated like members of the family. We are looking forward to future stays and feel good about leaving them with Karen and family. Jack & Karen B
Karen and family was just pawsome with our dog. She went on walks and was loved by all their family members. She came home calm and relaxed.
