About Karen

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We love all four-legged friends and want to welcome your furry family member into our home. Bring your small to medium-sized dog to our loving home. We also accept cats/kittens and will consider other four-legged friends.

We have over 10 years of experience caring for animals. We have always had dogs and/or cats in our life. We have a terrier mix, Chance, and a cat, Midnight, both rescued from a animal rescue. We have also volunteered as puppy raisers for puppies training to be guide dogs for the blind. We house-trained the puppies, taught basic commands, taught loose leash walking, and provided socialization with other animals and people.

We are an athletic family and love being outdoors. We love taking our dog on long walks, to sporting events, on 5Ks, to the beach, and wherever else we go. We especially love regularly taking our dog to soccer practices and games. We would love your dog(s) to join us. Chance loves having paw buddies along.

We will treat your family member like a part of our family. We will provide walks, 4 or 5 potty breaks a day, a peaceful place to rest, and plenty of loving attention, belly rubs, and tasty treats. We will strive to stick to the feeding schedule to which your pup is accustomed, and good social habits and loose leash walking techniques will be reinforced and rewarded throughout your pup's stay. Pets can sleep where they are comfortable. We will, however, use your crate if your dog prefers it.

We are located next to wide open spaces and green, rolling walking trails, perfect for playtime and leisurely strolls. Your furry family member will be enjoying all the pleasures of home at our Small Paws B&B.

To ensure a smooth transition, we request that you schedule a meet and greet before booking. Furry friends should be house-trained or training and spayed/neutered (except puppies and kittens).

We look forward to meeting you and your furry family member!

Karen and her family were wonderful! Karen sent pictures every day, and we could tell our Jazzy was well cared for and having a vacation of her own!
This was our first time staying with DogVacay and it was an awesome experience. In the past, we chose the traditional boarding kennels with paid extras of limited play time with other dogs and personal/individual walks. However, this boarding experience provided our dog with that "at home" experience. No cages/kennels or restricted play time. It was fun all the time! Plus, I received pic updates of our dog having fun with the other vacationers. Those pics were most appreciated being far away from home. Just knowing that our dog was safe, happy, and content at the host family's residence.

We had an all-around excellent experience boarding our beloved dog with Karen V for two weeks over the holidays.
Bolt had a great time staying with Karen. He was taken for walks and was allowed to be free in the house, I recommend Karen to Dog sit because she was able to take care of Bolt for a number of days and I was updated with pictures through out his stay.

This was my first time using DogVacay so i was nervous but Karen put all my worries to ease. She was the perfect host for my furry babies (2 Shih tzu mixes) . She sent pictures and answered messages very quickly I can tell that they felt right at home. I don't usually post reviews because I often feel like I am too picky but I have nothing but praise and good things to say about Karen and her family. I would travel the 29 miles from my house to hers anytime just for peace of mind anytime i need a home away from home for my babies. I got to really enjoy my vacation worried free.

Karen and family are wonderful pet care providers; very profession and caring. They made sure my little Coco was well taken care of when I was on vacation. My family was a little skeptical about letting someone else take care of Coco during the holidays. But Karen and family made sure we were well informed of how well Coco was interacting with the family and the other pets. Coco really loved it. The pictures uploaded on the site, showed us how much Coco was enjoying herself. My family spoils her, and Karen and family made sure that Coco didn’t miss us too much. She’s an adorable little girl, and Karen’s family grasp to Coco’s warmth quickly. In the pictures, Coco looked as if she didn’t miss us at all, because she was right at home with Karen and family.

Thanks Karen and family for taking wonderful care of my little girl. Now she has two homes that she calls home.

My Sailor had a great time! Pictures were frequent and very welcome as we missed our dear beagle dog very much. Our older dog has some health issues and required some medications which were also handled fine. Thanks again! We would not hesitate to book with Karen and her family in the future.

Karen and her family were great with Murphy. He had an injured paw and came to them wearing a cone, and I appreciate their willingness to deal with that. The daily pictures were wonderful. I was glad he wanted to come home!
professional and flexible
very professional
This was our first time using DogVacay and Karen put us right at ease! So glad we decided to try it and that Karen took such great care of our pup!
Karen made the transition for Pepper so smooth, especially since he has a mild case of separation anxiety at times; plan to become a steady customer. Tensay
Karen and her children were so nice and accommodating. My pup is a little timid and she worked with her to feel more comfortable. She said she got warmed up to them and their dog in no time. She took lots of pictures and it looks like my baby had a good time. Would definitely take her back. Thank you!

Karen was very responsive and accommodating. The dogvacay process was very easy. They treated our dog, Deco, like he was part of their family--lots of love and activity. We enjoyed the photo updates so we could see what he was up to. We'll definitely use Dogvacay and Karen again!

I was very happy to get the reservation for the next day. Lizzy seemed to be having a great time at Karen's place.
It was my first time using dogvacay but I will absolutely use it again. Karen was great! I got several pictures of Edison walking, playing and sleeping. Perfect! Thanks so much!
Karen was able to accommodate our last minute request. She was even flexible with the drop off and pick up times. She sent lots of pictures and we could see that our dog Favor enjoyed himself; he was in good hands! He even made a friend in Chance. He was a little sad when he returned home because he missed his new friend. We would definitely book with Karen again!
