About karen

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a Canine Behavior Expert, I will share with you insights into your dogs behavior and you will receive some basic training, free of charge, because bringing your dog to me for the day, overnight or walk, your dog will be exposed to my stable, calm and balanced environment with my well trained and happy therapy dog. If your dog is here with us we play all day, we go to parks and if requested, I have access to a private beach in Malibu.

If you are interested in training, if you want your dog to do what you want him/her to dog because he/she respects you, NOT just because he/she wants something from you, if you want to know how to embody the "pack leader" mentality, I can help you. $60 an hour and then you have me for any support or assistance for the life of your dog!

We felt like Wesley went to a camp while he stayed with Karen and Toby for 5 days. Karen sent us photos and videos everyday and we could see how much fun Wesley had with Karen and Toby! We knew Wesley was in good care and also made friend with Toby!
We had such a wonderful weekend knowing that Koki was in such good hands and was being well cared for. Karen sent me a text the first afternoon and all signs were positive. Karen took Koki for walks and he seemed to get along with Toby. I would not hesitate to recommend DogVacay and especially Karen to anyone in need of the service.
We just adopted Cosmo, a cute havens poodle a month ago and had Karen look after him for 2 days. She was wonderful and kind and kept us updated during the time they were together with videos and photos. When we picked Cosmo up he was very mellow and calm due to the training that Karen gave him in her care. We are all looking forward to seeing her again soon!
