About Karen

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a professional animal care taker (zookeeper), with a degree in animal behavior and have a ton of experience with animals WAY harder to deal with than dogs! I have also worked in an SPCA shelter and for 2 years as a part-time dog trainer. I currently have a young dog that is great with other dogs and could use some occasional friends/doggie sleepovers! I'm comfortable with just about any dog (or cat, or gerbil, or duck...) but they must get along with other dogs and not have any severe behavioral issues (aggression) to stay with me. I can provide training, nail trimming, baths, and a plenty of snuggling and play time! I can deal with animals with some medical issues or separation anxiety, and am willing to abide by whatever the rules are for the dog at home - crating, allowed on beds, couches, etc. I do go to work from 7 AM to 3:30 PM every day, but rest assured, pups will be fed and exercised immediately before and after my work day. After work, there is ample time for playing in my yard, walks, or a few small training sessions. I am capable of working with any dog, but would prefer pups that are fixed and house broken.

Karen was awesome! My dog Luna had the best time with her and her dog Pretzel. Luna did not want to leave and smiled the entire way home. Karen communicated with me throughout Luna's stay and sent photos. I would definitely leave Luna with Karen again!

Karen took care of my redbone coonhound for a week and did a wonderful job. Sadie was in great shape when I got back and Karen had sent frequent pictures of her to me while I was gone.
Karen was a great host. I've used her more than once because I trust her expertise and know my dog is in good hands. She was very accomodating to my difficult pick up/drop off needs.
