About Karen

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello!! I'm Karen. I'm a stay at home mom of 2, military wife, and a certified fitness instructor.
We own a large 2 story house, with a great back yard and an inground pool which our lab absolutely loves!!

I spend most of my day at home with our 2 dogs, they are very friendly, and a lot of fun to have around. They spend a lot of time in our yard during the day, and go for walks in the evening.

We spend a lot of time at home. We have moved around so much with the military for almost 20 years so we enjoy being together at home as a family!!

Our first baby ( a lab called Lucy) passed away last year at 15 years old, right before my husbands last deployment. It was heartbreaking for all of us, she was a huge part of our family.

We are a dog loving family, we will take care of your baby just like
we do ours.

Our 2 young teenage children love to take care of our furry guests. Your babies are never left alone.

I would never be able to say enough! Karen and her family are now like my family! I was so stressed about leaving my pup for the first time but she took such amazing care of her complete with exercise and plenty of love! I will never leave her anywhere else ever as Karen is perfect!!!
This was our first time using Dogvacay and Karen and her family made it so easy ! She sent pictures and updates throughout our dog's stay and went above and beyond to take great care of him ! We are so thankful to have found someone so kind in the area to watch him if we go out of town again .
We loved Karen. She took Kodac walking and let him swim in the pool which I know he loved! She texted me daily updates with pictures. She was great!
Karen and her family were fantastic with our Golden Retriever, Lilly! She came to pick her up and sent lots of photo updates. If your dog likes to swim, he or she will love swimming with Karen's dogs in her pool :) Lilly wasn't into swimming until she saw the other dogs playing, and once she got in she didn't want to get out! Now she loves the water!! Thank you, Karen!
Karen and family were fabulous hosts to Chewy! She took care of Chewy like he was her own dog . Her updates were timely and helpful. We rarely travel without him and it helped seeing him hanging out with her family. He seemed very comfortable in her home when we got there to pick him up. Thanks Karen!
The pickup and delivery were very timely. Loved getting pictures and updates. Made us very comfortable. The meet and greet went well and put us at ease. It's obvious dog was loved and cared for. We will defenitly use th again.
I would definitely recommend bringing your dog to stay with Karen! Her and her husband were so kind and they took such great care of our dog. She also kept me informed how he was doing daily! He had so much fun I don't think he wanted to leave. Definitely will plan on booking with her again!
Karen was absolutely amazing. We had a last minute need for a sitter, dropped off our dog and he was able to swim and play all day long while we visited Virginia Beach. It was also our first time using DogVacay and I've already told all of my friends and family about it. Five stars all around!
Nalu's first night away from home without us - Karen and her husband were wonderful! Lots of pictures, updates, and our puppy had a great time. Definitely recommend!
Karen was a wonderful pet sitter for my dog! She provided photos and videos while I was away so that I could rest assured that my pup was in good hands and having a great time! I would definitely recommend Karen!
Karen was absolutely wonderful with Daisy Lou and she made me feel very comfortable. When I text her and asked how Daisy Lou was doing, she even sent a quick video of Daisy Lou playing and having a blast. I will definitely be using her services again if I find myself in the area.
My dog...Kat LOVED staying with Karen. She had 2 quadraped buddies that she got along with very well and was definitely treated like one of the family. (We visited a couple of times as we were staying at a resort near there). Karen also sent pictures and a video during her stay. Kat was definitely sad to leave and was all mopey and "down" for a few days after having to leave Karen and her kids (both the two-legged and four legged variety). I would definitely recommend this home for your loved one.
