About Karen

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have owned happy and calm dogs for over 40 years and provide a peaceful environment, frequent outdoor breaks, and a roomy, monitored backyard that is perfect for active dogs to run.

In most cases, I limit myself to 2 overnight guest dogs so that your pup get lots of focused attention and to reduce the amount of 'new stuff' that they need to navigate during your absence.

I have a huge soft spot and enormous patience for all animals, and treat your family member with all the love that I have for my own. I text photo updates or snapchats to help you feel confident about how your pet is doing. I honor your feeding schedule and work within the needs of your pup to keep them (and you) as comfortable as possible while you are away.

Each weather-permitting day your pup will get 2 long walks (or maybe even a 5k run, with your permission), lots of supervision and unlimited indoor/outdoor playtime.

I offer overnight supervision or just day care, a cage-free environment (if desired), care for elderly dogs, or dogs who require oral medication.

For an additional fee, I can assist with:

- adult dogs that have special needs ($35-$50/day)
- handicapped dogs ($50/day)
- private boarding for only your pet ($55/day)
- trips to routine vet appointments ($20 per appt)
- pick up / drop off to your home ($15 one way within 10 miles)
- care for your dogs during the holidays ($50/day holiday rate)

The listed fee is per 24 hr. period / per pet. Partial days will be prorated. Last minute bookings are usually no problem with a successful meet and greet and acquiring proof of rabies and vaccinations.

If I can help insure your peace of mind when you need to be away from your pet, please contact me with any questions that you may have. There's never any obligation. I would be happy to help, and look forward to meeting you and four-legged family member!

Karen is fantastic!! Our dog, Cider did great! We would highly recommend Karen!
Karen was fantastic! After our meet and greet, I knew this would be the perfect place for our Piper. Piper loved playing in the yard with her pups and enjoyed a walk with Karen. Karen takes the time to get to know your dog and their personality. and enjoyed a walk with Karen. Karen takes the time to get to know your dog and their personality.

Karen was awesome! She sent us lots of pictures and kept us updated on how our two dogs were doing. We felt 100% comfortable with them in her care and knew that they were well loved! She even washed our dogs bedding before we picked them up. We and knew that they were well loved! She even washed our dogs bedding before we picked them up. We would definitely book with Karen again!
