About Karen

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have years of caring for and breeding dogs. I currently have 1 medium size rescue dog who is very adjustable to many animals. Sugar is a senior (40 lbs.)... I have also treated sick & elderly pets. Special diets &/or medications (oral or injection ) are not a problem. I am a widow and currently here in Yuma 9 months of the year. I have a nice home in Mesa Del Sol (foothills) that is close to Fortuna and I-8. My floors are tile, so no carpet problems. I allow the dogs to go in or out as they wish or per agreement. I have a large grassy area in the fenced backyard which backs up to the golf course. Many people walk their dogs in the evening, with lots to see and bark about.

Karen provided a very accommodating area for my two large dogs. It had a pool and nice yard to play in. I almost wanted to skip my trip to Mexico and just hang out at the pool instead. Dogs seemed to have a great time.
Karen was a fantastic sitter. Communication was great and full of photos of my two dogs. I knew they were safe and being pampered. I would definitely re-book with Karen again!
Bob stayed with Karen for 5 wonderful fun filled days. I would definitely leave him there again. Thanks Karen and a special "Thank you" to Tammy for letting Bob share her bed.
