About Karen

Hi, my name is Karen and I love dogs. I crazily love all animals but in particular, dogs.

Having my own dog for 15 years, a wridgeback/staffy who I lost to old age a couple of years ago, I find myself offering to mind other people’s dogs and every time ... it is the most joyful experience. I always love to be with and meet dogs of all shapes and sizes and age, individually or together. 

I work 4 days per week which is mostly from home in a safe and secure environment. I live opposite a picturesque park with a lake and just 650 metres from the beach-where dogs are welcome and I'm a big walker. I live a lifestyle that easily caters for walking, grooming, feeding and playing with my dog houseguests and yes, they get to sit on the couch at night for a Netflix binge or simply snuggle with me while I read or listen to music in a relaxed, calm and comfortable environment.  

I have a doggy door installed and am fully set up to cater for ALL dogs-any size, age or breed, whatever their traits or quirks, I am happiest when there is a dog in the mix - I hope it will be yours!

Whatever the needs of your pet, I will be happy to meet and I understand this is different for every pet owner. I can and will accommodate, whatever the request /needs may be.

I am offering pet sitting (overnight stayz) in the comforts of my home for ALL dogs.  

Thank you for considering ...

Karen was a fantastic sitter for our Schnitzel. She was a caring dog lover and treated our pooch with lots of care and fun times. She sent us plenty of communication during his stay and he always looked happy and content. Gladly use her again. Highly recommend Karen to pet sit.
