About Karen

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm Karen, I've been married to Jon for 18 years and we have two daughter's who are 17 and 13. Our 13 year old daughter, Sarah, has an unusual love of animals. She asked us to start our pet care business. She loves them all, big and small.

We just recently put hard floor surfaces throughout most of our main floor to make keeping our home cleaner with our 3 dogs. While this has made caring for your dogs much easier, please pardon our mess while we put our home back together.

A few years ago, we fostered puppies for about a month, and it was an excellent experience. But we care for all ages as long as they get along with other dogs.

We have a half acre yard, and the back yard is completely fenced. It's a dog's dream with lots of squirrels and rabbits to chase.

Because of our backyard chickens, we never find ticks on our dogs.(The chickens are separately fenced, so dogs can see them but they cannot get at them).

We are a home school family, so we are home most of the time. School often can be done with a dog in a lap or at our feet. We have a huge Lovesac bean bag in our school room, which all dogs have decided makes the best dog bed ever! It's big enough for the dogs and a child doing school!

We would love to keep your dog happy and safe while you are away!

Thank you to Karen and Sarah for taking such great care of Suki! They are so calm and reassuring that we felt very comfortable during her entire visit!
Karen and her daughter Sarah were amazing! They sent updates everyday with pictures of my dog. Sarah fed my dog, Cali by hand when she was nervous about being away from home and had trouble eating. The drop off and pick up was smooth and quick. They do have other dogs so it allowed Cali to socialize. She came home a tired girl from all the playing. I would recommend them to anyone!

Wesley made new friends at Karen's! It was the right mix of dogs and humans for my Wesley. He got to socialize and learn how to play with other dogs in the comfort of a home envrionement woth human affection as well. Perfect for my rescue dog. Already planning on regular visits! Thanks, Karen!

Karen and Sarah and their dogs provided my two dogs with love and caring during my twelve day vacation. I knew when I walked through the door that these were two people who loved and respected animals with all of their hearts. They sent pictures and videos and provided updates that truly warmed my heart. The house has several gate zones set up so that introductions and meals were easy! The dogs loved the attention and the large yard...and the chickens. When the dogs and I got home, there was much debate about who had the best vacation, I think my dogs won!

Karen and her family were wonderful. This was my first experience with DogVacay and it could not have gone better. Karen provided updates with photos throughout the day and I could see Frosty was doing great! Thanks Karen and family! We will see you again I hope in the future.

I brought my dog stay with Karen and Sarah (and family) for a long weekend- I received plenty of picture updates, that gave me peace of mind that she was having fun and being taken care of. My girl absolutely loves the giant yard! Thank you for taking such good care of her; we will definitely be back!

My dog had a great time! She was well looked after and got daily walks. She will definitely be back!
Karen and her daughter provided Lucy with loving attentive care.
I absolutely couldn't be happier! And Pickles was so content, so cared for and given love. Karen did a great job keeping me posted on how Pickles was doing. Definitely will contact Karen again for future dog-sitting!
Awesome experience! Karen clearly loved our dog and was excellent about sending photos daily.
Outstanding service and care. Couldn't have imagined a better experience in every way possible. Only reason we didn't give her 6-stars is because it wasn't an option.
We chose Karen and her family to care for our 4 month old twin puppies while we went out of town for three nights. I was admittedly nervous about leaving them with someone for the first time, but Karen assured me they would be watched like a hawk and kept out of trouble. We received frequent pictures and updates while we were away and when we returned to pick them up they were exhausted from all of the walks and play time they received. We would use Karen and Sarah to care for our puppies again in the future.

The daily photos sent by Karen assured us our dog was having a blast! I was worried about the chickens (our dog is a border collie lab mix) but they proved to be daily entertainment for him! The yard fence is complete but not real high so a jumper might escape - I was also worried about this with my dog but he was always distracted by the chickens ;)Daily walks were a given and there were never any fewer than 4 doggie friends around for fun. Great loving care from a dog loving family. Made OUR vacation much more fun!

Cookie and Buddy look forward to staying with Karen and her daughters. We've been lucky to stay multiple times and enjoy all the photos of our dogs hanging out at their home or in their big backyard.
Everything was wonderful. Karen was quick to respond to all emails with questions. She sent multiple pictures and daily updates to assure us that our dog was happy and well taken care of. We'll be back!
The house was so cluttered that I had serious safety concerns and decided not to leave my dog even though I had already paid and had to change my plans.

I have a lab, he tends to be curious and investigates everything, and will definitely snatch something off a desk or table. It was not a safe environment for my dog.

The host was nice, someone else may feel comfortable leaving a dog that doesn't get into anything there. I would highly recommend a meet and greet to see if you feel comfortable leaving your dog there before making a reservation.

I won't use this host again.

Karen and Sarah were great! They made sure my pup was comfortable and had lots of fun. He was super tired and happy when I picked him up, we will use them again.
