About Karen

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Note: I do work full time outside the home M-F, and have weekends off. We have two cats. I only care for 1 dog family at a time, unless the dogs know each other ahead of time, sort of like "cousin" dogs! (If you have booked with me and my calendar shows "unavailable" that is because I don't want people to think I'm available during that time frame).

I have been caring for dogs in my home through DogVacay for 3 years now. We lost our beloved family dog in 2013 when he was 14 and have not adopted a new dog yet. I love caring for different breeds of dogs in my home, they are all so special in their own way and each have unique personalities. I have also loved getting to know all the dog owners and families, dog people really are good people!

I love walking dogs and will walk your dog as much or as little as you prefer. I love having dogs around, cuddling and petting them as much as they want, playing with toys, or just lounging. Our back yard is not fenced so I will never leave your dog outside unattended.

Your dog will be a part of our family while they stay with us and we will treat them like pampered guests. They are welcome to sleep wherever they are most comfortable, even in our bed, if it is what you allow in your own home.

My family consists of my husband Ken and our two cats. Our two sons have moved to different states but visit occasionally. The cats, Boo and Kitkat, are usually very accommodating to our canine guests and are getting used to a lot of different types of dogs.

I look forward to meeting you and your pooch!

We have had Spencer taken care of by Karen several times. She is so good with him. We are totally comfortable with her and her family. In fact, Spencer is going to their house again in April. Harald and Suzanne
Another FABULOUS stay with Karen!! Karen has become our "go-to" dog-sitter. She takes such good care of our dog, Bentley. A lot of people aren't comfortable watching large dogs, but she does such a great job with our 100lb boy. It's always such a comfortable watching large dogs, but she does such a great job with our 100lb boy. It's always such a comfort knowing Bentley is in good hands while we're away!

This was the first time we left our Buddy since we moved to Minnesota and we could not have found anyone better. Karen sent me constant updates and pictures throughout Buddy's stay. We could tell that he was given a lot of love and attention. He pictures throughout Buddy's stay. We could tell that he was given a lot of love and attention. He came home exhausted after a long weekend of fun and walks Thank you Karen!!
