Karen was very attentive and sent many photos. It's always hard to leave the cats for such a long time. But Karen was surely dedicated to giving lots of pets and playtime, along with the necessary needs and food. She was recommended by our next door neighbor who have 2 dogs, one who is quite aloof and they were very pleased as well. We would recommend Karen to care for your pets.

Karen went above and beyond our kitties. She took extra time to bond with our two shy kitties and coerce one of them to take her medication, not an easy task. Completely blown away with the communication, positivity, and overall service. So happy to have found her and wish we could give beyond five stars!!

Karen has cared for my 2 cats several times. She is very dependable and dedicated. Most importantly, my kitties are healthy and happy! I love the many photos I get while I am away.

Karen did a great job with Hunter, my dog. He is a one person pooch and gets very anxious when I leave home but Hunter seemed comfortable with Karen immediately. I could tell from the pictures and videos that he was happy and when I returned he was excited to see me but not at all anxious like he had been after my previous vacations. Karen did a fantastic job with Hunter and I will definitely ask her to watch him again.

Karen was excellent! We have 2 very anxious cats and decided this time to leave them home and have someone check on them. She was able to coax Maeve out from under the bed on day 1, (astounding!) and River took a bit longer but did warm up. Karen was very communicative and sent excellent pictures every day. We definitely were able to enjoy our vacation more with the daily updates we received. We would definitely work with her again and recommend as a pet sitter!

Once again, Karen went above and beyond. Did her absolute best to work with our shy kitties. She even had tips for us to help them be more relaxed while we are away. Certainly grateful for Karen!

Karen is a wonderful sitter! She was able to quickly bond with our three cats (who are not always easy), and her updates and photos completely set our minds at ease and allowed us to focus on our travel and family gathering. She is reliable, attentive to any unforeseen issues that crop up, and adapted smoothly to a change in schedule that cropped up due to flight delays. Very highly recommended— we will certainly book with her again!

Karen was such a wonderful pet-sitter. Our dogs, Sophie and Juni, just loved her and were so relaxed and happy when we came home. She stayed at our house for three days and took excellent care of them! One of our dogs can be a bit scared of new people, but it worked out perfectly, Karen was so kind and was instantly able to make both dogs feel comfortable. She also kept us regularly updated with lots of pictures, making us feel at ease and able to really enjoy our time away without worrying about the dogs. We can't wait to have her back!

Karen is a wonderful cat sitter! She provided lots of detailed updates and loads of great pictures. I could tell that she was really engaged with my cat and the two of them bonded. I felt super comfortable knowing that my cat was in Karen’s care! Would definitely book with her again.

Karen did an AMAZING job housesitting for our 2 husky/husky mixes for 6 nights. She is extremely communicative, prompt, and responsible. She truly loves animals and it shows. One of our dogs is anxious, more so when we're away, so we were a bit apprehensive. Karen was so patient with her and did a fantastic job earning her trust - not by coming on too strong, but just by learning her ways. She sent tons of pix and updates. She was respectful of our home, left it in great shape, and generally went above and beyond with all of her services. Thank you Karen!

We are so happy we found Karen! Communication is quick and easy. And I could tell from the pictures that our shy cat warmed up to her very quickly. And when we got home everything was clean and our cat seemed much more relaxed than other times we have been away. Highly recommend her!

Karen is a wonderful person and amazing dog sitter. She is gentle, conscientious, positive and kind. Karen stayed in our home and took care of our dog Beau for six days and when we returned from our trip, Beau was relaxed and happy. Karen always goes the extra mile in caring for our dog. She took him to the dog park every day as well as a walk in the morning and afternoon. Karen sent lots of wonderful pictures and kept in touch several times a day so we always felt Beau was well taken care of. We give Karen the highest recommendation.

Karen was AWESOME!!! Our Bitty is very shy around new people, but quickly warmed up to Karen. Karen sent commentary and pictures every time she visited (2 drop in visits/day). She brought in packages and our trash/compost bins, and even watered our newly planted backyard plants without us asking. Our cat is an indoor/out door cat and Karen took her on many outings with harness and leash and put her Rx drops in her ears. EXCELLENT cat sitter! Thank you so much!!!!!

Karen is fantastic with dogs. My dog, Willie immediately warmed up to her when she arrived and I felt completely comfortable leaving him in her care. She was gentle, kind, compassionate and empathetic to both my needs as well as my dogs’ needs. I think Willie loved his shoulder and neck massages from Karen the most. You can tell Karen is a natural, the real deal dog whisperer.

Our first experiece with Rover was with Karen for four nights in our home taking care of our Shih Tsu puppy Charlie. It was our first trip away from Charlie. We had interviewed Karen ahead of time and with using her through Rover, we felt comfortable with her staying in our home. Charlie loved her. She was able to do her "work from home" and give Charlie lots of attention and he is an active little puppy boy! Plus she sent us lots of pictures of Charlie everyday. We would recommend Karen to anyone choosing to book through Rover.com.

Karen was a wonderful sitter. She communicated with us so well and sent us a whole bunch of beautiful photos of our puppies! She took them to some awesome parks that we didn't even know existed! We are definitely taking them back! Our puppies loved her and it was obvious she loved them too! We are definitely going to ask her to pet sit them again when we are away again and will recommend her to anyone who wants their pets in the best and most loving hands! Thank you so much for everything Karen!

Karen is a lovely person and is wonderful! She stayed in our home for three days and took care of our Goldendoodle, Beau. They went to the dog park every day, played with his toys together and went on shorter walks, too. When we came home, Beau was relaxed and happy which let us know that Karen was calm, kind and attentive. Karen kept us updated several times a day with comments and pictures of Beau which put us at ease. She responded within minutes when I had questions. Karen took good care of our house, too. Everything was clean and picked up when we returned. We highly recommend Karen and look forward to her next stay.

As no surprise, Karen did an awesome job. My wife and I went out of town last minute and Karen was able to accommodate a last minute request. She drove over the day before we left to get our keys and access fob and met with us after we returned. She spent at least 45 minutes playing with our cat while we were away. She is respectful, trustworthy, and our go to pet sitter! Thanks Karen!

Karen was an excellent pet sitter. She took such good care of my friend's pets while I was in the hospital. Karen sent lots of pictures so they brightened my day. I missed them very much but I knew Karen was taking great care of them and it lessened my worries. Karen went above and beyond when I had to change sitters. She met with the new sitter and told her what to do and where everything was and she even arranged to come back and put a lockbox on my apartment. I would use her again and again. THANK YOU KAREN!!!!

Karen took great care of my 2 cats! She sent frequent updates and pictures of them, which made me feel at ease while I was away. I was pleasantly surprised how fast my cats warmed up to her (they are VERY shy and often times are afraid of new people) but they were very affectionate and comfortable with Karen. Will definitely be booking with her in the future.

"I have known Karen for many years. She has owned/cared/loved all and any type of animals. True animal lover. She believes all life is precious including creepy crawlers that like to cozy up in the corner of your ceiling. She’d treat your sweet angel as if it were her own!"

Karen has been our trusted pet sitter to our two rescue dogs for several years, and she has been terrific with them. She genuinely loves animals of all kinds, but especially dogs and cats. She is very good with them, takes great care and they love her back. She is professional, reliable, easy to work with, and very reasonably priced. We highly recommend her if you are looking for someone really good to pet sit your furry four-legged family members!

respect
I respect each pet’s need to be acknowledged, understood and appreciated. And I go out of my way to fulfill those important needs. Pet parents often tell me they are surprised how quickly their pet warms up to me. I think it’s because  animals instinctively recognize pet empathy in a person’s soul. They see me walk into a room or a dog park and there’s usually an immediate connection. I love that.
In my care, your pet will be fed, and walked and/or played with, but they’ll also get the kind of one-on-one attention that makes a pet feel safe, secure, and loved.  
Taco
A whole lotta
Burrito to love

That’s Taco AKA “Burrito” (a Corgi Chihuahua mix) walking along Lake Chelan. He followed my 12-year old daughter home from school in 2004. We spent a month looking for his owner, hanging up signs on poles, placing ads online, going to vets, checking in at the Human Society – to no avail. We couldn’t believe that someone would just drop him off at a school ground. But Taco did adopt us and we hung out together for 15 great years.

Hi, I'm Karen, professional pet sitter.

"One can never have too many animals in their life, even if it's just for an hour at a time. When loved, they love back. All animals deserve as much love and attention as humans do."
