A little about us:
My boyfriend and I are crazy about dogs and love all breeds. We will treat your pet like ours and they will be spoiled rotten. We have over 20 years experience taking care of pets. We have experience with seizure dogs, dogs with behavior issues, puppies to geriatric dogs and everything in between. We both work at a local doggy daycare in the neighborhood. We work opposite shifts so that one of us is always home. Our yard is fenced with locked gates- we want your pups to be safe! We have lots of toys for them to play with and dog beds galore. The only thing you need to provide is your dog, kibble or raw and any medications- We provide the rest: love, pets, cuddles, bowls, beds and toys.

Kari is the most wonderful dog sitter that we have ever used! She was very patient with our beloved grey hound Charli who was scared of the world and was not easy to care for. Kari took her into her home and welcome her like she was one of her own. You can rest assured that your dog(s) will be cared for like they are members of Kari's family!

Kari is set up to handle any situation. If your dog needs a crate, she has it. If they are more mobile she has rooms for that. Multiple dog beds? Check.

She has been adopted by, and worked with dogs for more than 15 years. She has occasionally cared for my dogs for the last 4-5 years now. She always has her camera handy, so will send pics to you while you're away.

She LOVES dogs!

Our dog is always so excited to see us pull up to Kari's house. She loves him like one of her own and we never worry about him while we are away from home! It's so nice to have a home-away-from-home for our dog.

I have been using Kari for 5 years now to watch my dog when I travel. Kari is a very patient person, knowledgeable with all breeds of dogs, caring and I often think she cares more for pets than she does humans! I have complete confidence that my pup is treated extremely well and has a lot of fun when staying with Kari and her dogs. Kari communicates extremely well and in the one instance where there was a concern with my dog she was quick to take him to the vet to make sure there was nothing wrong with him, again, going above and beyond which is greatly appreciated! My dog enjoys going to Kari's and she equally enjoys having him over and with that I know I never have anything to worry about when work or personal travels take me away from Minnesota. Thank you Kari!!!

I've used Kari for over three years to watch my dog Sunny, who has some pretty heavy separation anxiety. I know that when I leave my dog with Kari, she'll not only be well taken care of but I can see how comfortable my dog is at Kari's home.

Kari has always been flexible and understanding of my last minute plans, and worked with me for drop offs and pick ups. I've recommended others to Kari and have always heard glowing remarks from them about her.

Keri would make a great pet sitter. She watched both of my greyhounds for many years and then my littles. I never have to worry when I leave my furkids with her.

We were scrambling around last minute to find someone to care for our Pitbull puppy Royal while we went on vacation. The place we usually bring him was all booked for spring break. We came across DogVacay and that's how we found Kari. Her experience with dogs is what caught our eyes..At first we were hesitant in trying out DogVacay but we are very glad we did! Kari was fabulous and took amazing care of Royal, she sent many pictures daily which helped us feel at ease to know that he was having a blast while we were away! Whenever we texted to ask how things were going with our puppy, she was very quick to respond! Her pricing for daycare and overnights are very reasonable and her flexible hours with both are amazing! Royal was one happy puppy staying with Kari, he loved all her cuddles! When we picked him up, he was one tired little boy from non stop play...that's for sure! I will for sure be bringing Royal back to hang out with Kari and her boyfriend again very soon! Thanks Kari and Smiley for taking such great care of Royal! If we have any friends that need puppy care we will for sure recommend them to you also! Thanks again!
Kari was fantastic! She sent me lots of photos so I could see that our dog, Tegan, was having a great time. Kari even trimmed Tegan's nails! Tegan had the opportunity to play with other dogs in Kari's fenced yard, and came home happy and tired.
Kari updated us with photos of our dog 5+ times daily which was great to see. Would absolutely recommend Kari for dog care!
