About Kara

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Located in the Bella Vista neighborhood of South Philadelphia. Great neighborhood for walking pets. Lots of families and dogs. Between myself and my boyfriend, someone will almost always be home to take care of your pet. The apartment I live in is a large one bedroom with a fantastic walled-in back deck where the dogs can lay in the sun and relax without any chance of getting out. If it's a nice day, we'll leave the door open for the dogs to come in and out as they please. There's also great windows for dogs who like watching the world go by. We'd go on several walks a day to parks in the neighborhood so your pet can get lots of exercise. I'm also willing to send photos and updates while you're away.

I do have a 5 year old mix named Stella. She gets along with most dogs when introduced in a home where she can be off a leash. Can be kind of intense player, which can intimidate some dogs. She can be kept away from your dog if they're not the most dog-friendly. She is not food or toy aggressive at all.

Please provide your own food and whatever bed your dog would be most comfortable sleeping on.
