About Karen W

55 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Our great doggie playmate, Lucy is Toy size. We usually only take small dogs for her sake; unless they are quiet and laid back at our meet and greet and approved by Lucy :)

We are retired and walk a lot. Your doggie will get at least 3 daily walks, more in good weather. We live in a dog friendly neighborhood, near parks and the Capital Crescent Trail, along with our always available fenced yard which all our visitors appear to adore.

We take extra good care of our baby; as we are a "green" family and use holistic techniques for health. Our guests have free run of our immaculate home, including our couches and beds. We treat our doggie guests with great affection and care, as we do our own. We are very long time dog lovers and so is Lucy.

Our maximum number of guests is one so we can give all the attention he/she deserve. We pride ourselves on our long experience, love of dogs, along with a high level of responsibility and care. Our home will be your dog's second home.

There will be a $20 day care fee added for single night stays only, which exceed 24 hours. Eg. morning drop off and evening pick up the following day.

Really appreciate Karen's great care of Trouble and Munchkin while they stayed with her. So nice meeting her and will definitely contact her again should we need dog-sitting again! Thanks!
Karen and her husband opened their home to our dog and kept her happy from the moment I dropped her off till the moment I picked her up. My dog made her self at home and even made a new friend with their dog. I would recommend their dogvacay services to anyone. Great experience!!

Karen and George are amazing. They took great care of Luna even tending to her when she was a bit homesick and not eating. George sat with her and made sure she had her meals. They were home the whole time, so Luna was at peace as she is a people dog. But both her and Lucy got along and played quite a bit. Karen and George sent photos and updates throughout Luna's stay. Luna had run of their home as if she was their own. She slept next to their bed as Lucy is queen of their bed. They have a wonderful fenced in backyard for outside play and they took Luna on many walks.

Karen and George are delightful, caring and engaging and Luna came home happy and exhausted!! Many thanks Karen and George, we will back.

And so many thanks to Dogvacay as Luna had a scheduled visit with someone else and they cancelled at the last minute.. DV zoomed and and helped us find a good match. And so many thanks to Karen and George for taking Luna on short notice.

It was a wonderful experience all around!

The dogs stay was perfect. Karen and her husband are very caring and conscientious. Thank you.
Karen and her husband do such an excellent job at watching my dog, Louis. Their house is so convenient, they live only a few blocks from my house. They are very flexible with drop off and pick up times, and treat Louis like he is their own dog. Louis gets so much exercise at their house that the last few times I have picked him up, he slept all evening (which is rare). They are excellent, kind hosts.

Karen & George were above and beyond loving and caring while taken care of our Maggie. They sent us daily emails and pictures while she was in their care and treated her like their own. I felt so comfortable and at ease knowing she was with sweet, loving and attentive care takers. We will definitely continue to use them both.

Karen and George are the best. They have a lovely house with the perfect back yard for my two little guys. They were very careful to get detailed care instructions from me and sent me a nice photo update. They were even able to deal with Teddy when he got homesick and a little grouchy.

Karen (and George) were perfect dog hosts. They are knowledgeable about what doggies need to feel at home, and were willing to try anything to make our dogs comfortable during their stay. They have a beautiful home which they opened to our dogs, and our dogs felt very cozy during their stay.

Karen & George are very caring hosts - my husband and I were quite relieved to find such nice people to care for Sophie! Our Sophie got along well with their little Lucy too. They have a lovely home and fenced yard and walked the dogs together. Sophie needs medication and has a special diet and they were very willing to deal with that. We know we will be asking them again to take care of her! Thanks much!

I knew Bella was going to feel at home and have a new friend "Lucy" to play with. That made our vacation much more relaxing knowing that Bella was being taken care of. We would definitely recommend Karen and we plan on using her again in the next couple of months.
I can tell Bella was comfortable at Karen's by the way she behaved when we returned home. Not at all like the time we had to put her in a kennel.

I cannot say enough nice things about Karen and her husband. They treated Bangles like she was their own dog. They were very conscientious about every aspect of her care. We were able to enjoy our vacation knowing our dog was in very good/kind hands.

Ginger's stay was delightful. Karen made her feel very welcome in their home for the weekend. We definitely would like to request her services again.
Karen and George are terrific! They took care of our girls like they were their own. The dogs had a great time.
