Karen and family provided a wonderful home from home for our two westies. It's always daunting to leave our pups, but when we met Karen it was immediately apparent that they would be loved and well looked after. Both pups came back happy and full of fun.
Karen and her family were great!

We did a meet and greet ahead of time, so that we knew her dog (Derby).

When I was about to leave for vacation, my dog (Doopy) could tell something was happening and started to freak out, but Karen was great. She calmed Doop down and later let me know that within a day, she was totally settled in.

I got all kinds of cute photos of Doop cuddling with her kids and taking field trips to Golden Gate Park.

Karen was also very accommodating to my drop-off and pick-up time requests.

I've actually already asked Karen and her family if they'd be willing to take Hadoop in for another vacation I have in a few months.
Karen was wonderful all around! Frisco immediately felt right at home at their house and with their sweet pup, Derby. When I came to pick him up at the end of his stay, he didn't even want to leave— he wanted to show me around his new digs!! It's clear that Frisco loves spending time with Karen and her family. Karen was also incredibly gracious and flexible with my evolving travel plans, which I appreciated so much. Thanks for everything, Karen— Frisco will definitely be coming back!
Karen was not only lightning-fast with her responses, but she was so courteous, flexible and sweet in the handling of my little one. Will definitely be using Karen again if she'll have us!
Karen took care of my dog Boomer for a week. We met beforehand so Boomer could meet Karen's dog and family, and I left feeling comfortable and happy given how friendly and welcoming they were. Karen sent some pictures and notes over the week and was quick to respond when I reached out.

One week later, and this is the first time I've come to pick up Boomer and it felt like she wasn't dying to go home right away. It's little details like noticing she had no goop in her eyes, and that Karen picked up Boomer in a way that showed how comfortable/caring she was with my dog, that make me happy I've found a great place for her to stay while I travel!
As usual, great care for Kiki with a great family in their nice and cozy home. Special shout-out goes to the resident pooch Derby, who helped to make my nervous little girl feel more at home.
Karen helped us to take care of Hana again during our trip and Hana had a great time there.
Karen and John and awesome hosts! Not to mention their friendly furry host Derby is so friendly and playful. My dog Hana stayed with them for 4 nights and she seemed to enjoy her stay. They do ask questions as how to care for Hana if there is any special needs that she has. Communication was a breeze. They sent us pictures of Hana during the stay. I will come back.
Karen and her family were great with Kiki. She is a really shy house guest but the whole family put her at ease and by day two they had won her over. The family dog Derby is the cutest and friendliest little guy. He was patient with Kiki and I'm sure she felt reassured having him around, even though I heard she wan't always the most gracious guest!!

I highly recommend them and would definitely book them again in the future!
Thanks Karen & Jon for taking good care of Barney. We were able to enjoy our holiday knowing he was in good care and having fun with Derby!
Karen and her husband are wonderful hosts. They took great care of my two dogs and were very helpful in all ways. Their dog Derby was very sweet and made my dogs feel welcome. 5 stars all the way!
Great host!!! THANK YOU
My little dog loves going to stay with this nice family and their dog Derby.
Karen and her family were just great! Her little dog Derby was a gracious host too!! Daily walks and small but perfect backyard for my little guy to run around in...he came back a happy camper. I'm already planning Broadway Jack's next visit.
Thank you so much and will see you soon.
Maura and Broadway Jack!
Great. Nice family. My dog loved staying there.
Karen and her family are great. They have a small dog named Derby who is a real sweetheart and has a fun personality.

Our little guy Harold, seemed to have a wonderful time during his stay in their home and especially enjoyed spending time with their daughter.

I highly recommend Karen to other people who are looking for a great home to leave their dog at while they're away.
My two dogs have stayed at Karen's twice now and seemed to have enjoyed it there. Karen and her family provide a pleasant home environment and their host dog, Derby, is a good playmate. Because my dogs are older, I wanted an environment not being too wild and crazy (like a kennel) which Karen provides. I would use Karen's service again and give her a positive endorsement.
Booker had a fantastic time with Karen and her family. He was especially attached to Karen's husband who was taking him on a long walk with Derby when I showed up for pick up. I heard he slept every night curled up with them so it was nice to know that Booker felt at home :)

You could tell from drop off and pick up that Karen and her family (her son and daughter also helped out!) genuinely loved and cared for Booker while I was away. I will definitely use her again for our upcoming vacations.
My dog Cosmo is not an easy pet to host, so I was extremely pleased and happy with the time he spent with Karen, BRAVO!! Thank you!!!
Very friendly and good with our difficult dog. Great family setting for your small dog. She even has a cool doggy door that leads to her backyard. And her dog Derby is very sweet.
