About Karen

28 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Your puppy would hang out with a high energy Chunky (border collie mix) and Slim, a docile rescued greyhound. Full run of the house, and a fenced yard to share makes a great day of fun and naps.
Davidson has great dog parks and long walks at Fisher Farm park. With Lake Norman close by, if your dog likes water, we can go take a mid day dip in the lake.
I manage a Ben & Jerry's ice cream, which leaves me a flexible schedule and most mornings and evenings free.
I am a graduate Veterinary Technician and worked at River Banks Zoo in Columbia, and 2 different small animal hospitals so can administer injections, pills and attend to most medical needs.

Very pleased. My lab had fun playing with her dogs. He come home worn out!! Karen took good care of him!!!
Karen T is the best!!! She truly cares about my Lab. I highly recommend her.
Karen is a very caring and knowledgeable dog-lover. My yellow Lab can't wait for his next "Vacay" with her.
Penny had a great time with Karen. We are definitely going to book again!
Karen is fabulous. She was attentive to my new dog's needs, sent me some updates and was very flexible about my changing schedule. My pup was totally happy with her time at Karen's and I would gladly use her again if I need dog care in Davidson. I think being with other dogs definitely put my dog, who sometimes has separation anxiety at ease.

Karen is the best!!
Karen was very flexible with us---we were traveling with our dog so that our daughter who is in college could visit with her. We arrived at Karen's later than expected on Friday and then had the unusual request of wanting to come to her house on Saturday and take our dog out to spend time with our family. Karen was very accommodating of all of our comings and goings. We appreciated that!

Stella had a great time. She is ready to go back another time. Karen is awesome!!!
Karen was gracious and accommodating in coming to our house to meet Zoey (8 month old Morkie girl) when we could not get a meet and greet coordinated. She was additionally able to "privately" help is with plant watering and cat and bearded dragon care for the week we were at the beach. Photos and daily texts came from her showing how great Zoey's Vacay was going with her dogs. We anticipated Zoey being the puppy and following the lead from Chewie; but it seems that Zoey ran the show and Chewie was willing to "allow" the baby to do so! Zoey came home freshly bathed and happy! Thanks again Karen!

Stella loved being with Karen and can't wait to go back!
Karen always takes good care of our dog and understands her needs. We can recommend Karen for other pet owners.
Karen took a last minute request. She responded promptly and answered all my questions. She was very Sweet with our dog. She was a savior for our trip since our kids wanted to take our dog on vacation but our hotel didn't accept pets. Greatly recommended!

Karen was very caring and took Halo in on very short notice. I received a photo update and could tell that she had a great time!
Cooper (my dog) had a wonderful time with Karen and her two sweet doggies. Karen sent me pictures of Cooper playing and in one picture I swear he was smiling!

Karen gave medications to Cooper and took good care of him.

Thanks! We love Dog Vacay!

Finn had a wonderful time at Karen's and I hope she is available again when I need her. Thank you Karen
Karen makes Millie feel at home. Millie loves to visit her pals Slim and Chunky! We know our dog is in good hands with Karen.
Piper came home very happy! I enjoyed seeing pictures of how much fun she was having!
I had a great experience with Karen. She sent photos daily of Jack so I always knew how he was doing and never worried about him. She took him to the park and he had a great time playing with her dogs. I would highly recommend you booking with Karen.
