About Kari

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am new to the dogvacay website and VERY EXCITED to develop a furry friends client base! I hope to respond to requests quickly so i can get reviews soon. I want owners to see im a reliable and trustworthy caretaker! I am a dog lover and have been my whole life. I seem to always have an ability to relate and care for any type of dog whether it be my own personal dog or others. My passion for dogs helps me to communicate and bring out the best in all animals. I have been looking for an opportunity to utilize my love for dogs and to be able to devote myself full time to caring for and loving on all breeds of dogs. I will spend my day pampering, playing, and exercising your beloved pet and meet all requirements the dog has of us as there caretaker and handler. My home is pet friendly and has a huge yard to play in, a room designated for dogs and plenty of cozy places for the dog to relax and feel welcomed. My husband also shares a love for dogs and works some from home so we share the responsibility in caring for your dog. I will take the time to get to know your pet and listen to you as to certain special things that you do for your dog and apply them all to the care of your pet. I look forward to taking care of your beloved! Thanks so much! ?

Kari was great with sadie. She updated me constantly and made me feel like Sadie was on great hands. I will definitely be asking Kari to watch Sadie again!!
Kari was sweet to talk to and provided the updates regularly. Overall I and my boyfriend were not satisfied because Bella came home dirty, her toy, food was not returned in its entirety.
Kari was wonderful. I have never used DogVacay before and Kari answered all my questions and made me very comfortable leaving Jax for the day. Kari was excellent with Jax when we arrived. When I picked Jax up at the end of the day he was happy, still excited but calm and as soon as we got home he was fast asleep. It was a good day for Jax and Kari is a sweetheart.

Kari was very nice and took excellent care of our dog, Atlas. He seemed very happy in all the updates I received and was in great spirits when I picked him up. I would say he enjoyed his vacay very much! She even sent him home with some homemade dog treats!

Kari took great care of our lab and sent nice updates during her stay. It was nice to see how she was doing and know she had lots of personal attention while we were away.
I was very happy with Kari service. She sent regular updates and was pleasant to deal with.
Kari and her husband were very accommodating and flexible with pick-ups and drop-offs. They were both very personable and have a huge heart for dogs.
Kari and her husband are great. They took care of our puppy as if she was their own. Fun and extremely tolerable of our rambunctious ball of energy. They even asked to have her back (which is extremely surprising given her energy level). Thanks again!

Kari was wonderful! She was super accommodating and helpful. I was very nervous meeting and using a dog sitter because my usual was booked but Kari did not disappoint! She let us come by and meet her before our reservation and I was instantly reassured. She loved Duke instantly and they loved each other instantly. I have already used Kari again and will continue to do so.

Kari was so wonderful with my lab/ shepherd mix puppy, Kenzie. She had lots of playmates and came home happy and healthy. I booked one day in advance and Kari was extremely accommodating. I know Kenzie would love to go back to Kari's and she will :)

Kari was awesome with our THREE dogs, a tall order I know! She was super flexible with our schedule and our dogs had a great time. Would definitely use her again if we are ever in the area.
Kari was awesome will our dog Spanky. She took him for multiple walks which he loves. She doted on him and even had her Mom's dog over for a "sleepover" with him so he could have a large dog to play with also. She was quite attentive and we definitely plan on using her in the future!!

My Mom and I were in Knoxville for a concert on Saturday night and needed someone to come to our hotel room and babysit our 4 small dogs. Let me start by saying that these babies come with me everywhere and we never take them to a kennel. They are also all rescues with pretty bad beginnings. So, finding someone who understands this can be difficult.
I have nothing but good things to say about Kari. She is very kind and gentle and immediately sat on the floor and pet the dogs. They were CRAZY about her. She texted me pictures of all four of them cuddled on the couch with her! This is not normal of my dogs, as they are usually quite scared of strangers.
When we got back, they were all very happy and relaxed.
I will definately call Kari again when we are in town and would highly reccomend her to anyone.
I wish she lived here in Atlanta!

Kari and her husband were awesome. We were new to the area and Kari was available within days of us needing a sitter. We had a meet and greet day prior to her boarding. We wanted Twinkie to be safe and in a comfortable environment. Kari provide that for us. She was very accommodating and helpful. Twinkie really enjoyed her stay as well with Bo. Kari sent text messages, a video, and pictures of Twinkie while we were on vacation. Kari ROCKED!!!

We had a great experience with Kari and her husband! They are very kind people who love what they do! They made my dog feel right at home and made sure he had all the love he needed for the weekend! We will definitely be back!
Kari showed up early and was well-prepared to sit for my dogs. She met them and they loved her, and she followed my instructions to the letter (one of the dogs is training to be a therapy dog so there's no toy tugging, excessive loving, or roughhousing allowed). Kari and her husband really care about me and my dogs. I highly recommend them!

Kari was so wonderful! (and her husband too!!) She was incredibly warm and kind and her home was clean and very dog friendly. I felt so comfortable leaving my babies there. I had to have surgery and Kari checked in on how I was doing during my recovery and kept me posted on how my dogs were doing so that I need not have any stress or worry. I ended up needing her to keep them an extra couple of days because I needed a bit more recovery time than I thought and she kept the on short notice with no problem at all. She even delivered my dogs back to me so I didn't have to drive to pick them up! She went above and beyond to help me with my dogs while I was in need. I would absolutely use her again and recommend her to anyone who needs a dog sitter. Kari is a very sweet person, a true dog lover, and a perfect home away from home!

We adopted our four month old dachshund/beagle mix very recently and were nervous to leave her for the first time since she is so little (and chews on everything...). Kari put our minds at ease and was very welcoming to our girl! She was very ready to take on the challenges that come with a new puppy and did a fantastic job taking care of her. Moxie came home a very happy puppy!

Kari was amazing with my dog who has separation issues from his Mommy. She made him feel so comfortable and at home. He had so much fun and was well taken care of...He will definitely be visiting Kari again!!!
The dogs were very well cared for! They hand fed our puppy for the first few days since she was nervous! I would highly recommend having them watch your dogs, they had a great time! Thanks for taking such wonderful care of our girls!
Thank you, Kari, for taking such good care of our dog while we were gone! We could tell he felt right at home.
Even though ours was a last minute reservation, Kari welcomed us & our 2 dogs with enthusiasm & open arms! She's a warm, friendly & capable caregiver who cares for your fur baby like her own! Our dogs thrived under her loving, trustworthy & responsible care, with special attention paid to their individual needs. They also enjoyed interacting with Kari's other canine guests & resident pup Bo. We will definitely use her again should we return to the area!

Kari took our dogs in and loved them like her own. She sent text messages each morning with pictures to keep us connected to our fur babies while on holiday. Her dog, Bo, was also very welcoming. We will definitely use her services in the future.
