I have owned dogs for over 40 years. After losing my 16 yr old Aussie, I started watching friend's dogs to help my survivor pup adjust to the loss. This inspired Karen's Dogcare.
Each weather permitting day includes 2 long walks, lots of supervision and unlimited indoor/outdoor playtime at home. I provide very frequent outdoor breaks (every hour if needed, but routinely, every 2 hours) and a roomy backyard with a locked fence that is perfect for active dogs to run.
I have a huge soft spot and enormous patience for all animals, and will treat your family member with all the love that I have for my own. I will text photo updates or snapchats to help you feel confident about how your pet is doing. I honor your feeding schedule and will work with your pups needs to keep them (and you) as comfortable as possible while you are away.
I offer overnight supervision or just day care, a cage-free environment (if desired), care for elderly dogs, or dogs who require oral medication.
In most cases, I limit myself to 2 overnight guest dogs, so that your pups get lots of focused attention and to reduce the amount of 'new stuff' that they would need to navigate during your absence.
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!
