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 was fantastic! The only down side was she had other dogs, in addition to hers and mine, and they sounded like a bit much to handle at once. But she handled it like a champ, sent me adorable photo updates, and was really nice and loving to my dog.Will definitely use her again!

Karen was very nice, she met with me on short notice and she has a big backyard for my Charles to run around. Karen sent many photo updates while I was away and it looked like Charles had a great time. I would gladly recommend her to watch over your beloved pets, they will be in good hands.

Karen took care of our 6-month-old puppy as if it were her own. She sent us photos and updates daily, and made sure Joker was acclimated to her home before we said Goodbye. She will always be our go to dogsitter!
First time using Dogvacay and it has been wonderful. Karen was the best. She was flexible with me in drop off and pick up times, she also made sure that my dog and her dogs got along well before I left my pup in her care. When I came back to get my pup I could tell she was happy and cared for, this was also evident in the pictures that Karen posted of her on the website. I will definitely use Karen again when travel needs require it.
