About Karen

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We have no pets of our own, so we love to dog-sit for everyone else! Our kids love dogs and our whole family will treat your dog like part of our family. We will take your dog for walks, give them a lot of attention, and follow your instructions exactly as you ask. References available. Will offer a special rate for two dogs from the same family. We only watch for one family at a time, but occasionally two families may overlap by a day and I will always check with both families before I agree to that. We have really enjoyed getting to know so many different dogs, and we have done a lot of different things to accommodate their needs! I have gone to pick up a dog to stay at our house when the owner didn't drive, we have brushed their teeth when requested, we have given medications, followed special diets as provided by the owner, and generally done whatever is asked to make sure their loved one feels comfortable in our home. Dogs are allowed to sleep on our bed, if that is what they prefer at their own home! Big fenced-in yard and they are always supervised when outside. We're happy to have your dog with us!

I left my golden with Karen for 1 whole month. I was very nervous as I have never left him this long. I was very happy when I saw her and her daughters on meet and greet and decided right away to leave him with them.
She was in constant touch with me, replied to my messages promptly, sent me regular updates with photos and videos and even initiated video chatting so I can see him playing around.
Karen and her daughters were wonderful, they really pampered him and he had a wonderful vacation with them. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to have a great vacation and not being worried about their furry baby.
Karen and her family were great hosts, sending updates when needed and she was happy to meet before to make sure Dexter would have a good time. I would absolutely recommend her as a host to anyone.
This was Beast 1st stay with Karen (his last stay at Christmas he got out from a different petsitter's house and was gone for 3 days) and I had extreme anxiety leaving him with another sitter. Karen was wonderful at our meet and greet and assured me that Beast experience and mine would be a lot different. He was excited when we dropped him off and I felt better leaving him while out of state. Karen sent pictures and updated me whenever I would message her. I am very thankful to have found Karen to watch my baby while I'm gone! Karen and her family are wonderful!!
Kronner has become quite a regular visitor at Karen's place. I always know he is in great hands and he is always so excited to see Karen and the rest of the family when I am dropping him off. Thank you for always giving me peace of mind when I go out of town without my pup!
My rescue Maltipoo has stayed with Karen a few times. Karen and I had a long meet and greet before I booked the first stay. I could tell that she LOVES dogs and my little spoiled brat adored her!

My dog shows no anxiety separation when I drop her off, and my needy little girl is so relaxed and calm when I retrieve her. I can just tell she is very happy when she's there. I'm thrilled to have found this family. I can leave knowing she is in very good, kind and caring hands.
I was a little nervous using this service for the first time, but Karen's family was so wonderful that I was completely relieved when i picked Gracie up. Knowing she is well loved and cared for makes leaving her so much easier. This family is great!
Karen and her family took great care of our pup during a long weekend visit! Very easy going and responsible, she provided updates (including photos) throughout his stay and answered any questions I had promptly. I highly recommend her as a sitter, and will definitely be bringing back our little guy in the future!
Karen's family took excellent care of George while I was away on a cruise.
When I picked him up it was like he had been on vacation too! I think it was
good for him since he had been a rescue dog when I got him. He's knows
there are good people who love dogs like me. Thanks to Karen and her
family. :-)
Karen and her family took excellent care of Madison. They made her feel comfortable and at home there. She got lots of loving attention. We will definitely be using Karen as our dogsitter for all our vacations in the future!!
Excellent! The dogs were well taken care of, and everything went smoothly!
We left our little Pepper with them for 5 days during my brother's wedding, and they took the best care of her! We received text updates, and it was just so nice knowing Pepper was in good hands. Pepper, a usually anxious dog when it comes to new surroundings, seemed so relaxed and at home when we came to pick her up. It gave us such peace of mind knowing Pepper was in a safe and caring home while away from us. We can't thank them enough, Karen and her family are awesome! :)
Karen was an awesome pet sitter! She went above and beyond to help take care of Scooter. We got updates and photo of Scooter with her daughter giving Scooter a belly rub - Scooter was actually smiling! I couldn't imagine him at a kennel :(. Thank goodness for the service Karen and her family provides!!!
We felt so comfortable keeping our dogs, Cooper and Tanner with Karen and her family. They were well cared for and happy when we picked them up after being away for two weeks. This was such a better option than keeping them in a kennel as I know they received lots of love and affection and a fenced-in backyard to run around in. I'm not sure they were ready to come home! I will definitely be calling Karen the next time we need boarding.
Karen and her family were exceptional with my puppy, George. I loved getting the daily updates on how he was doing. Made me relax even more on my vacation. I'm so glad George was well cared for and was able to play with her two girls.
After the initial 'meet and greet', I felt very comfortable leaving Cody with Karen and her family for a 2 week vacation. I knew he would be in good hands. She was very careful to follow his care recommendations. Her two daughters also gave Cody lots of special attention. Cody seemed happy and well adjusted in her care. I would definitely use her again.
I gave her & her family a 5 star. If your furry family member loves to be spoiled this is the place. Her daughters are wonderful with there attention & cuddling. I felt comfortable with her at the first meeting, she asked for my guy's routine & had a great fenced in back yard.
Wonderful host family! Karen listened carefully, followed instructions, provided updates, and even lovingly washed and brushed Mumfy. Very easy to work with. Highly recommended!
