About Kari

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have been around animals of all kind my entire life! I grew up with golden retrievers as well as Pekingese, so I'm comfortable with all shapes and sizes of dogs. Throughout high school and college I would volunteer at animal shelters just to help and be around dogs. Since I don't have a dog out here, I miss spending time with them, so I'd love to help others out by pup sitting. Basically, it would benefit me as much as it would benefit you :) I'm 30 years old and am available (over)nights and weekends. Have tons of energy and free time to play with your dog around my apartment, parks nearby, and am within walking distance to the beach (if he/she is into strolls on the strand). I'm open to any type of dog with any type of needs! I'm also a great company if your dog is older and just likes to relax. Extremely responsible and reliable! Will always answer your calls or call you back within the half hour.

A typical day with your pup would involve hanging out at my apartment, then a high around Malibu/Pacific Palisades on dog-friendly trails. I have learned which restaurants nearby are dog-friendly, so lunch would probably follow. Depending on what else is happening that weekend, or the activity level of your pup, we could either play around at my apartment again or maybe hang out at a dog park (if your dog is OK with those).

I'm eager to sit all sorts of dogs, especially ones I haven't had growing up - chows, poms, Tibetan mastiffs, labradoodles (I clearly have a thing for puffballs) - but am excited to meet yours.

Thanks so much and look forward to hearing from you!

Kari can't wait to have your pup stay over. As a dog lover who doesn't have one of her own right now, your pup is bound to get all the attention he or she is craving. She has a studio apartment in the heart of Santa Monica close to local dog friendly coffee shops, a park, and even some ocean front strolls along the bluffs. Kari is experienced with breeds of all different sizes and would definitely be accommodating to a couch potato or a cardio enthusiast. Set up a meet and greet with Kari - it is sure to put both you and your pup at ease knowing they will be in good hands while you're away.
