About Karilou

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am studying animal behavior, i am currently getting more training as a dog trainer as well. I have been working with all kinds of animals not just dogs. I own two dogs myself and have always love the companionship and the loyalty a dog brings to a home.
my home is completely fenced front and back yard, all dogs will be separated as needed or per request. i welcome indoor and outdoor dogs, trained and untrained.
When you dog stays with me
All dogs are kept separately for safety unless under supervision, I understand that most dogs are very social and will be able to have play time and socialize under supervision. I will send pictures of them during play time. Feeding is done separately as well just to be safe and make sure no dog becomes food aggressive.
There will be individual walks and of course lots of cuddles.
Dogs are family therefore family should be treated with love all the time ??

Everything started off great with Karilou. She was very flexible with porky's stay and allowed a last minute booking. I went to visit porky once during the stay and I found it suspicious that I was not allowed to see the back where my dog was during the stay and I found it suspicious that I was not allowed to see the back where my dog was staying. I was not allowed to see where he slept or the conditions of his living situation. I went when she wasn't there because she suggested I go anyway because her mom would be there. I found it suspicious that I wasn't allowed to observe where my dog was staying but I figured maybe her mom didn't know how to handle that situation. I went back a week later to drop off food and I asked her to let me see where my dog was staying. This time Karilou was there but I still wasn't allowed to see where the dogs were sleeping or spending their time. It was 1pm and the dogs were crated outside in 80 degree weather in SAN Diego. Her dog who just gave birth a week ago was also outside in this weather. I asked her many ways and many times to let me see here he was and she refused. Something was wrong and I could feel it. I went back to my car and decided to take my dog home immediately although I was planning for him to stay 5 more days. my heart is brokn because I don't know what kind of treatment my dog received. This isn't in home boarding. This is backyard boarding because the dogs are not allowed in her home and she has at least 5 dogs back there. Please make sure you check where your dogs are staying and demand a tour. Don't make my mistake

Karilou took such an exceptional care of my highly anxious and skittish puppy. The first night she allowed her to roam freely and choose where she wanted to be without being restrained, but at the same time separated from other dogs. She warmed up wanted to be without being restrained, but at the same time separated from other dogs. She warmed up slowly to people and other dogs during her stay and ended up having a great time playing with many dogs.
Karilou kept me very well informed and her accounts were very accurate which gave me peace of mind that she was in great hands.
Karilou took the time to understand my puppy's needs and provide those without forcing anything, letting everything follow a natural course.
When I picked up my puppy I saw how she got in two paws, kind of hugged and kissed Karilou and then she got in the car.

Frasier seemed very happy in all the photos playing with other dogs. Karilou seems very comfortable handling multiple larger dogs at the same time so that made me feel very comfortable.
