About Karen

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Dogs adore me and I adore them! I’ve grown up with dogs since the age of five so I’ve enjoyed the perks (cuddles, walks, and more cuddles) and eventually learned about the responsibilities (regular walks, vet visits, cleaning, etc.)

These days I’m living in an adorable apartment atop one of the sunniest neighborhoods in San Francisco, Potrero Hill, where there are plenty of parks and sidewalks for your dog to walk and sniff (check out the photos for views and the dog parks I've visited).

At the moment, I'm only dogsitting for owners that are able to accommodate overnight at their home because I'm not able to have dogs at my apartment. Your dog will get plenty of beautiful vistas, though, because I'm a whiz at finding idyllic dog spots.

Book with me and I promise your dog will enjoy the following:
- Morning and nightly walks (30-60mins) to the local dog park in my neighborhood and extended playtime on weekends
- Healthy treats and bones
- Daily photo updates
- Beautiful views of SF
- 24/7 supervision
- Pickup/dropoff available

If you'd like your pup to be fresh and clean when you get back, I offer dog washing at an additional rate of $15. Please ask!

Special rates available for repeat customers.

Karen was a pleasure to work with! We came back home from vacation to a very happy puppy! While we were out, Karen would send us pictures of what they were up to and how our puppy was that day. There is no doubt that we would use Karen again for puppy sitting needs :)
Karen was perfect for Terra, letting Terra warm up to her, which she clearly did very rapidly. and I loved the photos and videos I got while I was away; I could tell Terra was content, and I felt connected. A very sensitive touch.
This was my first time using DogVacay, but having done a meet n' greet with Karen prior to the actual reservation, I knew my dogs would be in good hands over the weekend. She put me right at ease, and the dogs liked her immediately!

I have two senior dogs: one is blind and both are on medications, and they require at home dog sitting. Karen followed their med instructions to a T, and sent me photo updates every day. Also, I can be a bit obsessive and critical when it comes to cleaning my apartment, but after returning to the apartment, I found it to be absolutely spotless and the dogs were pooped out from their morning walk, thanks to Karen!

I will definitely seek Karen's dog sitting services in the future!
