About Karin S.

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi,
this is Karin and Robert and we love all pets. We live in a pet friendly house with a large backyard on a cul de sac in a very secluded neighborhood with no through traffic. All our neighbors also have pets. I always had a dog when I was a child, my favorite was a beautiful cocker spaniel named Susi. My husband always had big dogs in the past, German shepherds, and would love to have one. We have 5 cats, and they go in and out as they want. They have no problems with dogs. I work from home, so pets will never be unattended. We have a dog park close by which most dogs enjoy a lot.

Karin is a wonderful person who creates a loving and friendly home for your dog so you can relax knowing they are very well taken care of! 1st time doing something like this: very positive experience and I highly recommend Karin!
Everything went as planned. Karin took good care of my dog, and even adjusted her schedule to accommodate me when I picked up Portia.
My little girl had a pawsome experience at Karin's house. As every dog mom I was a bit nervous to leave my baby for a week but after we met the first for the meet and greet I was sure that she is in best hands. But not only that Karin and her wonderful husband are real pet lovers....they are from Germany as well :-). A win for all because my furry daughter is bi-lingual LOL. Karin send me tons of pictures every day and she never got tired of my numerous worried textmessages especially the day the hurricane went over Fort Lauderdale.Very happy to find Karin and would recommend her 100%, the perfect place to leave your best friend in loving hands. Oh and one more thing to mention.....my baby learned to live with cats, haha ( which I was worried about as well). Win win for everyone

Karin and her husband took excellent care of our terrier, Stella, while we were on our honeymoon. Knowing that we would be missing Stella, Karin sent pictures and checked in periodically so we knew Stella felt right at home and was in good hands. We recommend her highly!

Karin was great. Very friendly and happy to let us stop by for a meet-and-greet. Our Beagle, Milli, seemed to enjoy her stay. She usually can't wait to leave her sitters house, but had no problem lounging around until the very last second we called her to the car.

Karin was the perfect hostess for my 7 y.o. Cocker spaniel. Her home is immaculate, well organized & has an ample back yard to romp.
Additionally, Krain was kind enough to replenish Buddy's hypoallergenic kibble by going to the vet's clinic to pick up a bag of food when she was low on supply.
I highly recommend her for your next vacation.

I am so thankful to Karin! I moved to the area 6 days before leaving for vacation. I booked someone else through doggy vaca about 2 months ago to insure I had a sitter. He had good reviews and seemed suitable. I dropped my dog off at 9am on a saturday and received a phone call about 9pm stating I needed to pick up my dog due to excissive barking. I was 3 hours away, and since i was new to the area did not have any friends or family to pick her up. After searching for a few hours and panicking Karin called me at midnight to say she would go pick up my dog the next morning. She honestly rescued her! My 6 year old cocker spaniel barks at lizards and the mail man. I was shocked that a sitter i paid good money would call after 9pm for me to find a new sitter. Karin took my dog to the park and she had plenty of room. She said that my dog did not have a barking problem at all. She even went out of her way to drive 15 minutes to pick my dog up from the other sitter. She sent picture and updates. I am truly grateful to her. Highly recommend.

Karin and her husband were very nice and Sandy my dog had a great time! Would recommend and use these pet sitters again
My dog Charlie just loved staying with Karin. I think she came home healthier than when left. thanks Karin. We will be back.
Karin kept me posted everyday and always kept herself available. I have very specific instructions for my two dogs and Karin was on point with everything. Thanks again.
We have brought our furry babies twice to stay with Karen.. (AKA Auntie Karen) and this last time they were so excited to see her when we dropped them off... they jumped all over her.. lol. They send photos often as well which we love. They have a lovely house on the canal and they get to run around all day. We will be traveling again in July and Yazzy and Shaggy will be staying with Karen and her husband again!

My Australian Shepherd had a fun and comfortable stay at Karin's. We got lots of updates and pictures of her activities including her trip to the local dog park. She really bonded with Karin and Robert. We would definitely book a return trip if we need to go away.

Karin was a pleasant hostess, flexible on drop and pickup times. She sent photos each day, which was nice. Wasn't thrilled with the smell of cigarette smoke on my dog upon retrieval.
5 stars! Karin accepted my last minute reservation to watch my furbaby during a holiday! She was very accommodating and you can tell that her and her husband both love animals.
Karin was wonderful with our dog. She took great care for our dog. I will recommend her without reservation. I will keep our Bradley with her anytime. Our experience was exceptional Nandini
Paco was glad to see us, but we could tell he liked Karin and her husband. They were very tolerant of him, letting him sleep on their bed! He actually seemed kind of sad later, like he missed them. We will be happy to use Karin again.
