About Karen

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello!
I created this profile as an effort to "pay it forward" for others who find themselves in a bind with dog sitters. I LOVE animals and enjoy being around them. I have always had pets (dogs, cats, hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits, fish, toads, and chickens).

I work 3 miles away during the school year and have school teacher hours; I can check on your pet at lunch if necessary. There are two parks on my street and my yard is fully fenced. My two dogs are sweet dogs who would love a play mate.

I have had dogs all my life and loved a border collie until her passing in 2012. She had serious seizures for 5 years so I am comfortable caring for your special needs dog. I can administer medicine such as eye drops and pills as needed. I have 3 steps from my deck to the yard but have frequently carried pets up and down them during their stay!

I am pretty easy going so let's meet and greet and talk about your needs! I do have allergies and 2 dogs so I require to meet your baby first as well as a 24 hour notice so that I can take something to avoid the itch from some pets! If you are unable to bring your dog to me, I can bring my dogs to you for a meet and greet.

I came to DogVacay when I was in a serious bind with my own two dogs 24 hours before my family vacation. I am happy to be a dog sitter to help others in need of a safe, caring home away from home.

Karen and her pups are amazing. My dog Zula clearly loves being there. I will continue to make a reservation with Karen whenever I am leaving town!
One of my two 13 year old miniature pinchers became ill upon returning home. It appears he ate a lot of grass while he was away and he developed a case of severe diarrhea and vomiting. Karen however remained in contact with me for several days after my dogs stay as I worked with my vet to resolve his issue.

Karen took such good care of our dog, Tuxedo! Her home was clean and a great place for Tux to run around. She was hosting a couple other dogs who got along well with ours and she sent us frequent updates while we were away. We will definitely use Karen again in the future.
