About Karen

45 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I live in a huge home!! Lost of action and never a dull moment with dogs around. Ive been mom to more animals than I can think of; hamsters,fish,lizards frogs,cats and of course dogs. All creatures great and small. My home is huge~ approx.
1/4 acre with a pool ~three separate yards ~pool is gated, a yard to play and has a basket ball court. The smallest yard is where I hang my clothes out to dry and trash area.
4 bed 2 bath home . I have tile through out the home except the bedrooms. Open floor plan with lots of space to run in and out. They have their own beds but some how they end up with me or my son. I was a massage therapist for 32 years so you know what that means~ rub my back mom.

Karen is an amazing hostess. We left our dog Lily at her house for the weekend.
Lily had a really good experience. Karen sent pictures of her relaxing and having fun. She shared notes with me about how she slept and what she ate. I would recommend Karen to anyone who needs to leave their dog-even for the day. Her backyard is conducive to fun doggy play.
A totally worry free weekend for us knowing that lily was happy.
I will be a repeat customer. Thanks Karen-You are an angel!!
Maureen Giracello -Hemet Ca
Our dogs had a great stay with Karen. She kept us updated with pics daily.
Karen was very pleasant and welcomed our puppies, she has a very nice puppy friendly back yard and home. We will bring our puppies to her again as the dogs mixed well with her 2 dogs and seemed quite at home.
We were very happy to have chosen Karen as the sitter for our Toby and would use her services again with no worries. Glad we found the BEST dog sitter in Hemet thanks so much.
Karen, She is so sweet and great with the dogs she had them for three days and they were well taken care of and very happy. The area for the dogs to play was very large and they were allowed to go in and out as they wanted. We wil definitly call on Karen again down the road.
Incomparable to any other pet sitter service I’ve ever used! Karen is awesome. She is a very caring and down to earth person. I had a very good feeling from Karen upon meeting her and felt confident our dog Ginger wound be in excellent care. After she sent me a picture of Ginger kickin it on her couch, I knew Ginger felt completely safe and comfortable. Karen is also an excellent communicator; responded to my emails almost instantly! I will definitely take Ginger back to Karen for my next vacation again and would highly recommend her loving care and service.

Very caring host. Would definitely use her services again.
Karen was great with our big 110lb baby....always just a text away and sent us daily pictures...will definitely keep in mind for our next vacation
Lucy had a blast. I will definitely be using you again! Thank you!!
Karen was wonderful with Mitzi and made sure that our little girl was kept so busy that she hardly missed us. We really enjoyed the little notes and pictures that Karen sent to us while we were away. This was the first time that we had ever left our dog with anyone and we were quite apprehensive about it but after meeting Karen and her dogs and seeing where Mitzi would be staying, we were confident that she would be well taken care of and that she would enjoy her little holiday. We will definitely use Dog Vacay again and hope that Karen will be available to take our Mitzi.
Karen and her son, Tevor, made us feel right at home. We would have gladly paid much more for the love they have given our Sophie girl!!

Karen sent us plenty of pictures to show how Sophie was so happy to be there with her pups, Baxter and Nala, which are two special loves in their own right. We loved having Sophie there for the comfort and love of a home away from home.

Karen and Trevor, we can never thank you enough for all the love, comfort and peace of mind you gave us and Sophie. We shall continue to bring her to you for many years to come.


The Paquet Family
My doggies loved Karen. The experience was wonderful and a day care day put my mind at ease to leave my babies on an overnight stay with her.
She sent me pictures of them playing in the yard. Charlotte only rolls on her back when she is really happy. She was rolling around on her back at Karen's house.
They were excited when I came to pick them up, but also kept going to Karen. I could tell they loved her already and were in there way thanking her for a fun day.
I feel comfortable leaving them with her anytime we need a pet sitter. I would recommend her and I already have recommended her to friends.
Karen was awesome with Dottie and Daisie. I was very comfortable leaving them for the entire day. I also really enjoyed the pictures Karen sent throughout the day as well as the text messages. Leaving my pups for the first time...was a great experience and I look forward to the next time!
I highly recommend Karen! Our dogs felt like a member of her family. I am so glad to have found her. The alternative was to board them in a kennel, something they would have hated. Karen even took the time to bath them!
Karen was absolutely wonderful with our Murphy!! He had a fabulous time playing with her dog Baxter and didn't appear to miss us at all! Karen was so great to email us pictures during our time away so we could see first hand how much fun he has having. I would recommend Karen to anybody who wants a worry free and fun filled boarding experience for anybody that needs to leave their furry babies behind!! I will be booking with Karen for "slumber parties" with Murphy for all our future events throughout the rest of this year and on!
I would highly recommend Karen if you are looking for someone who loves dogs. She has two of her own, and my dog, Buddy had a great time with them. Karen took very good care of our little guy and I will surely call her the next time I need someone to care for Buddy.
