“Your friendly neighborhood dog walker”

I started pet sitting when I was in high school. Several of my friends had dogs that I would care for while they were away. To make extra money in college I began to walk and then board a local Shiba Inu; a gig I kept until I started working full time. I have always loved animals, but was unable to have any as a child because of allergies some of my family members have. Now my wife and I currently have two dogs (a beagle and a havanese/poodle mix), three cats, two rabbits, and a conure.

Hi! My name is Karen. I am a huge dog lover, I've never met a dog I didn't love, and make instant friends with the pups I meet. I have had dogs my whole life, including now. I have a rat terrier as well as a super hyper chi-weenie that I rescued from running in traffic. While my dogs are small, I also foster dogs and most of the ones that come to me while awaiting a forever home are pit bulls or other misunderstood pooches. I love them all. I know how much you love your dog, and I will treat them like I would my own. I cant wait to meet your pup!
