About Karen

I have been fostering and rehabilitating dogs for 12 years. I am a homemaker with a calm toddler, so I'm always around and doggy play breaks happen often. I also have a doggy door and extremely secure yard allow for all day indoor/outdoor play access or just lounging in the sun, as well as your peace of mind. I send photos of your dog all throughout their stay, so you can see just what they're up to as well! Large, comfy, dog-friendly couches are a great place for everyone to crash into a puppy puddle at the end of a long day...

Woah, SUPER overdue review, but I am so glad I left Meatball in the company of Karen. As with any dog parent, I was anxious, but Karen's constant communication (not to mention the time she took out to have a "meet and greet" in her home beforehand) put me at ease. Thank you, Karen!

Karen and her family took wonderful care of our timid dog. Although we never left him alone before, by the end of his stay he was comfortable spending time with them on the couch and the bed, and using the dog door to play in their great big secure backyard. I feel comfortable knowing we have a place to leave him next time we have to leave town.

I highly recommend "Your Dogs New Best Friend." Karen M. provided wonderful care for our dog and was flexible adjusting the plan as our travel changed. She and her family are delightful and I am thankful for their TLC with our dog.
My family and I were going on vacation and needed to find somewhere to board our jack Russell. In the past we used kennels. We are newer to the area of Santa Clarita and with the heat and all in the summer decided to go a different route and try a dog sitter instead. I found dog vacay on the net signed up and found a fantastic family willing to care for our dog. Karen and her family were fantastic and very friendly!! They made our dog feel like part of their own family. They also personally have a few dogs and our dog seemed to waste no time making herself at home. We received daily pics and feedback just like the site says and Karen and her husband sure seemed to go that extra step in giving the loving care that dropping your dog at a kennel or hotel wouldn't quite get! You know that personal touch. They have a very good sized yard for your pet to have room to stretch and play as well as ample room within their home for your pet to relax after play time. I wouldn't hesitate to use Karen and her wonderful family again. Thanks!!! From,
Shane and Wendy
