About Karla

I work with dogs for a living and foster for a rescue. I am very aware of dog behavior and body language. Your dog will not only be in a dog friendly environment, but will get a daily walk and manners and obedience work every day
We do not use crates or cages. Dogs have free roam like they're at home. They always have access to my large back yard. For sleeping we have a room dedicated to them with a full size bed and dog beds in it for them. There are also dog beds in my room and right outside my door and in the living room.

Karla is fantastic! She took in our rescue retriever mutt on last minute notice. She is a dog rescuer and is passionate about animals. Thanks Karla
Karla was great! She was very professional with the meet and greet and our dog Gunner adjusted better than expected. Her dogs are very sweet as well, which made us comfortable with ours being with her for the weekend. It's a unique Airb&b for dogs! Haha. I definitely will be booking in the future with Karla!

This was the first time we left our two little fur babies for a week and we were nervous to say the least. Reading reviews all over DogVacay we ultimately went with having them stay with Karla due to her outstanding reviews. The reviews were right, our dogs seemed to have a good time and were well taken care of. We also received multiple photos which gave us piece of mind. Would highly recommend Karla!

Karla is my #1 choice for boarding my dog. I have used her on several occasions and am always very happy with her services. She is always quick to respond to my request and is very easy to communicate with. I know she takes very good care of Bentley as he always comes home happy!

Karla was awesome. She helped our shy dog feel at home. We were also so excited to get tons of pics and a video while we were away. We would definitely recommend Karla.
Karla was perfect to watch our Roxy. Thanks!
Thank you for taking such good care of our Mendy and for taking the time to send us pics. We'll see you again soon.
Karla really is a pro when it comes to dogs! I have never felt like my rowdy pup was in more capable hands while I was gone, and I even learned a couple training tips during our meet & greet. Karla's also very flexible with drop off times, etc, and sent me a photo every day I was away. I'll definitely be coming back!

Karla is awesome. Buddha had plenty of other dogs to play with and had a great time while he was there. The dogs have full run of the house...and there are beds and food always available to them. Karla truly is a one of a kind dog sitter and I will definitely be using her services again!!!

As usual it was a very positive experience for Toby and I am very appreciative of his good care. I love the photos!
Perfect in every way
Atticus loves Karla...if he could just keep her all to himself I think he would ;-)
Everything seemed to go smoothly - heard of no negative incidents during Sasha's stay with Karla.
I looked forward to some photos sent to my cell but
never did receive one. At pickup, was not able to talk to Karla as she was out, but her son Bob was dog sitting and was very pleasant and filled me in on some details regarding my Beagle's stay there.
Said Sasha laid by Bob's feet when he was on the computer and chose same area to sleep for the night; she is a creature of habit. And can be a little aloof from other dogs, but no worries. I felt the home and Karla & family were seasoned and well equipped and experienced in handling several dogs at once. I felt comfortable there and am sure S. did also. She was in good hands. ; ) Would call her again.

Loved the pictures and videos. I believe that he enjoyed his visit and have used Karla several times. I will continue to use this home.
From Bruce's activity level to his sleeping arrangements, to his feeding schedule, I know he gets personalized care at Karla's. He always looks happy in his photos. You're the best, Karla.
Cody had a great time with Karla.
Karla is great! I was really worried about leaving my older beagle mix, Tigey, at a new place, but he did great at Karla's Pack. She made sure he wasn't dominated by the other dogs and that he didn't eat everyone's meals. Karla asked that Tigey come early so that she was confident he would settle in. Her overall knowledge and concern for all the dogs really impressed me. Plus getting photos of Tigey while we were away was very comforting. I'll definitely leave Tigey there again for his next vacation.

Our dog, Bruce, always has a good time at Karla's. It is the only place we will leave him when we don't take him with us. Karla is great about sending updates. Seeing how happy Bruce is allows us to enjoy our vacation.
Karla is great and my dog, Desi, had the best time with the pack! I recommend Karla to anyone who is looking for a great place for their dog to stay.
Karla is the BEST! My dog has a great time every time he stays with her. We can enjoy our vacation knowing he is well cared for. Definitely recommend.
This was the first time I left my dog since I rescued her nine months ago. I was worried because she had been an abused/abandoned dog and had a lot of trust issues. Karla did fantastic with her! She kept me updated while I was gone with pictures and comments so I was put at ease. Gypsy had a chance to be exposed to some other dogs and that helped her confidence and socialization. I plan on using Karla again. She is 100% committed to dogs and will do anything for them. She is a great person and someone you can definitely trust to take care of your dog!!

Excellent care as always - thank you Karla!
Awesome experience. We have only had our rescue dog Oscar for about a month and we were not sure how well socialized he was with other dogs. Karla is very knowledgeable about dogs behavior and after the meet and greet she put me at ease that he would be just fine with her dogs. We will have Karla care for our dog again.

Great service, always keep me updated about my pup.
Great daycare
Karla was very accommodating and made sure Liyah was happy and taken care of. Liyah loved it!
Karla is amazing. Bruce had a great time during his stay. We were able to relax on vacation knowing he was safe and pampered. We received frequent updates. Bruce got plenty of exercise and chances to socialize. He also had one on one time with Karla. I highly recommend.

This was a great experience for us. our dog is not friendly towards other animals, but Karla had her interacting with 6+ dogs within minutes. We went on our 1 week vacation to see our great grand daughter and didn't worry about "Lady" the whole time. $or 5 times during the week Karla would send us an email with photos of her and she looked to be completely settled in and interacting with the other dogs. It sure was nice not worrying?

We were very pleased with the care Karla and her team provided Ben & Missy. Our meet and great went very well and Karla answered all of our questions. The updates and photos during Ben & Missy's Dog Vacay were great and kept us current on how they were doing. We felt very comfortable with Karla's care of our two Westies and would be happy to recommend her services.

I just returned from an eighteen day vacation and my dog was healthy and happy in this home. It was nice not to worry about his care and I appreciated photos that were sent. I have left him here before and will again.
Karla is exceptional. She understands dog behavior better than anyone I know. Our dog, Atticus, needs exercise and discipline first - then physical touch/affection. He has a lot of energy and craves strong leadership. Karla provides the perfect environment for Atticus when we are away. He loves the other dogs and non-stop playing and socialization and feels very comfortable knowing Karla is in charge - so do we :-) Karla sends us pictures of him while we are away so we can see he is having a good time. Thanks for being awesome Karla!

Toby was healthy and happy after his visit and I'm happy that he had the chance to visit with other dogs. I plan to use Karla again.
I have a 2 1/2 y-o red heeler mix who is a high energy breed. At home, it is just the 2 of us. I am gone at work 10 hours 5 days a week, so she not only needs an outlet for her energy, she needs social interaction.

I have been taking her to Karla's for 2 nights a week for several weeks now and I can see it's effect. She already has developed a bond with Karla. She seems to be breaking out of her shell and interacting with the other dogs. She also comes home quite tired.

Karla has helped satisfy what my dog needs - activity and social interaction. She is quite knowledgeable about dog behavior and I would recommend her to anyone.

Karla is a very compassionate and committed caregiver. She was wonderful to our old (and a little cranky) Minnie and we are grateful for her services. I would recommend her highly to anyone!
Re: Behavior issues
Karla got to work right off the bat. We have two
chihuahuas and they were becoming aggressive
w/each other. She patiently worked with both
dogs until she established her presence as the
'head of the pack' and offered hints on how we
should address their behavior. We hope to
board our dogs w/her and feel comfortable that she
knows how to handle any situation should it
arise. We will work w/our dogs and would have
her back if we need to. Thank you, Karla!

This was our first experience leaving our 9 year old Molly since we rescued her a year ago. We could not have been happier with Karla and her pack. She understood Molly's behavior immediately and had her joining in with her pack in a couple of minutes, something we though was impossible. We extended our trip from 4 days to 7 because we felt so comfortable leaving her there. We would recommend Karla to anyone looking for a safe fun place to leave their dogs, we will certainly use her again.

This was our first experience with DogVacay and it was wonderful. We had set up a Meet and Greet with Karla several days prior to our weekend away. Our first expression of Karla and her gang of dogs was very positive. Our dog Chito was immediately welcomed by Karla, and to her pack. Karla is warm, energetic, and is a wealth of knowledge. She has complete control of her pack, and that reassured us. Chito spent a wonderful weekend with her, and we were updated with great pics We will definately use Karla again and definately refer her to others.

Koda and Jethro had a great time on vacation with Karla's Pack! I have searched several boarding places and people and was not comfortable going on vacation until I met Karla.
While on my own vacation she sent me pictures and updates of both dogs which helped me enjoy my vacation even more. Just knowing that they were well taken care of and not in a crate was so relaxing. I would recommend her to everyone and will bring my dogs there in the future. I have put off going on vacation many times because of my dogs, now I do not have those thoughts.
Thank you Karla's Pack!

We are very happy with Karla. Our two dogs have stayed with Karla twice now and we would recommend her to others and will stay again. She knows how to deal with each dog's needs. Our older dog was happy just hanging around while our younger dog played in the kiddie pool with his new buddy!! Great place for all dogs.

Awesome place to leave your pets!
My older dog had just died and Lua, who is a young dog was demonstrating signs of depression. She was very unsure of herself and was so terrified of other dogs that we were considering cancelling our vacation. I was initially apprehensive during the meet and greet because of the other dogs that were present. But Karla is truly an expert dog handler. She calmed the excited dogs who were responding to Lua's presence and I could immediately see that Lua would be in great hands.

During our absence she sent daily updates and pictures. This allowed me to relax and enjoy the time away. When we picked her up I was elated to see how well she was interacting with the other dogs.

You can't go wrong with Karla.

She was excellent with our dogs. I would reccomend her to anyone who wants that in home experience for there dogs. She allows the dogs to sleep in her home and has a great yard for them to play in.
