As a fellow DogVacay host, I was happy to find Karen to board one of my dogs so I could finally have a vacay myself. After meeting her and doing a test daycare, I felt very comfortable leaving my bossy little Min Pin mix with her :) Karen is a test daycare, I felt very comfortable leaving my bossy little Min Pin mix with her :) Karen is a trainer so she has that calm energy that is necessary to work with dogs. But she also has that warm, fuzzy feeling that I feel a lot of trainers lack. She sent plenty of pics and updates, which was reassuring from afar. I wouldn't hesitate to use her again. Thanks, Karen!

Karen was fantastic. I was very apprehensive about leaving my dog with a sitter. But she led me through an introduction with her dog, and what would be entailed in a stay with her. She sent me consistent updates and even a long profile of my dogs be entailed in a stay with her. She sent me consistent updates and even a long profile of my dogs behavior afterwards. Really really high quality sitting and great experience. Will definitely continue taking my dog to Karen when she needs sitting.

We decided to try a more personalized place for our dog for when we are out of town. Karen's profile on DogVacay appealed to me, so I decided to request a "Meet and Greet". I was very impressed by Karen, she has a lot of experience with dogs, she request a "Meet and Greet". I was very impressed by Karen, she has a lot of experience with dogs, she asked a lot of questions to learn as much as possible about Lola and about our parenting style of her. I left feeling very comfortable about Karen, her house and her approach to dog sitting.
We left Lola for two days with Karen. She kept us informed about how Lola was adapting to the new arrangement, very honest about good and bad and how she was handling the situation. When picked our dog up, Karen went over the experience again, to help us understand the behavior and giving us great advice on making this an even better experience in the future. I will definitely leave my dog with Karen again and would highly recommend Karen's services to my friends.
