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 was outstanding in every way and Bing loved her and enjoyed his stay at her home in Yuma. She is great, couldn't have asked for more. Plan to use Karen's services again when we are back in Yuma.
Thank you Karen, you're the best!

Great experience with Karen. She has a nice clean home with a well maintained yard. She was available on a holiday weekend for us with only a couple weeks notice. She updated us with pictures of our dog during the stay. Would use her again. Highly recommended. Thank you!

Karen did an excellent job caring for our elderly Border Collie mix. It was obvious that Lassie had been well cared for. We wouldn't hesitate to use Karen again!
