Karen’s love of animals was apparent as soon as I saw how she interacted with my dog.  She has watched Ketra many, many times and I feel so much more comfortable leaving her at Karen’s than I did when I took her to the boarder.  She treats Ketra as if she were her own, with long walks and playful time outside in her fenced-in yard.  My husband and I go away often and I feel the most comfortable with Karen.  I live in Gulph Mills and she’s not around the corner, but it’s definitely worth the trip for peace of mind when it comes to your pet.  I recommend her highly.

** Thank you to Marlene & Ketra, you've helped me open the doors to my passion.**

All we can say is… thank goodness we found Karen!  We have a puppy, Dawson , and were heading out of town for a long weekend but didn’t know what we were going to do with him.  We were very uncomfortable about leaving him in a kennel, as he was so young and had never been away from us.  Fortunately we found out about Karen from Marlene and Arnie Weiner, and once we met her we knew that we no longer had to worry about what to do with Dawson when we went away.  Each time Dawson has stayed with Karen we know that he has been well cared for and loved.  He is given plenty of time to run and play, comes home smelling fresh and clean, and gets all the attention he so craves!   It has been a relief to have found Karen, and we look forward to Dawson spending many more wonderful weeks with her in the years to come.

My dog Sparky is one lucky guy!  I met Karen 8 months ago and she’s been walking him everyday since then.  Karen truly cares about and enjoys spending time with Sparky.  I recently recommended her to a friend who just loves her too!  Sparky also stayed with Karen while I was away for a few days and really enjoyed himself.  She provides a safe, clean, loving environment, not to mention fun!  Karen is professional, trustworthy and an overall great person—Sparky agrees!   I would highly recommend Karen and feel really lucky to have found her.  Thanks for everything!    Lisa and Sparky, Horsham, PA

We can’t thank Karen enough for all the love, care and attention that she provides for our little guy, Dozer.  What started out as an occasional dog walk has turned into a weekly visit that can’t be missed!  Dozer is so spoiled at her house, having lots of fun with her and all of his new friends.  Karen cares for Dozer as much as we do and we can rest easy knowing that he is in a great environment weather it’s for a day or for a week.  We feel so fortunate to have found Karen; she not only takes care of your pet but becomes part of their lives.  We highly recommend her.

Karen has been a wonderful find for Mia and me.  I have absolutely no worries when I drop Mia off for the day or overnight.  All of her dogs are well behaved and make great playmates for any dog willing to join in on the fun.  Mia comes home well fed and tired after having an energetic day, but no worries; whether your dog is a couch potato or an energetic dynamo they'll feel more than at home at Karen’s.  Mia has had day care with Karen for well over a year now and we look forward to the many more that will come.

Our dog Jake had the pleasure of staying with Karen while our family went on vacation to Florida for ten days.  We were honored when Karen, who is also our neighbor, offered to watch Jake for us.  After taking Jake to “meet” Karen prior to our trip, we instantly new that he was going to be loved and cared for.  She encouraged us to call whenever we wanted to check in and also took the time to email pictures to us of their week together.  Jake made many new “furry” friends during his stay with Karen.  It was very comforting to know that he was in such good hands.  We highly recommend Karen because it’s clear that she is passionate about what she does.

Dear Karen, We are settled back home from our trip, and getting back into the routine of work and life. However, before too much time passes by, we wanted to take a moment to express our gratitude for the loving care you consistently give to Milo and Buddy.  Although I know that they cannot process language in the same way that humans do, I am convinced they understand the phrase “Karen’s house”! When we pull into your driveway, their stubby little tails wag like crazy and they run to your door, ready to go.  It is such a good feeling for us when we bring the dogs to you and watch them run to the back door like they own the place.  When we leave them with you, we know without a doubt that they will be treated with warmth and affection while we are gone.  Please accept our thanks and gratitude for the tender care you provide our “boys”.  Michele and Becky

Thank you so much for caring for our girls, Winnie and Brooke while we relaxed on vacation.  We had no worries, we knew that you would take good care of them and in return they would give you plenty of wet kisses! We would gladly recommend your services to all of our friends and family....thanks again!       Lori O., Ambler, PA




I want to extend my thanks for taking such loving care of Miles while we were away last week.  It was comforting to know he was in such a wonderful environment with you and Dawson.  It is clear that you really love dogs and treat them all as if they were your own.  We loved the slide show you sent us to view while we were gone too!   Patti & Alex,  Horsham, PA


I do want to thank you!!!!!!! "Karen for the dogs" perfectly describes your true nature towards dogs.  I've been spreading your name around to all my pet owner friends with complete confidence that they will feel the same after you have taken loving care of their dogs.  My son Alex remarked when we were leaving on how Cole seemed like he didn't want to leave your house when we came to pick him up.  Thanks again and until next time... Laura,  Hatboro, PA

The name may be “Karen for the Dogs”, but she’ll take good care of your cats, guinea pigs and fish, too!  Going on a business trip is stressful enough without having to worry about your pets being taken care of while you’re gone.  We’re so grateful to have had Karen to take care of our babies.  Having known Karen for over a year, we were perfectly comfortable leaving our cherished pets in her care.  Upon our return, we weren’t surprised to find all of our pets happy and healthy – and not even one fish died! Thanks so much for caring about our pets as much as we do!

Thank you so much for taking care of Samantha while Marc and I were away. It was wonderful to go away on vacation and not think about Sam being stuck in a kennel all week. Know that she was in your home receiving the love and attention she is accustomed to, really gave me comfort. Your services were a great find and I would recommend you to anyone.

I can’t thank you enough for taking such great care of my Oliver. I can’t tell you how much it meant to me to be able to go away with a piece of mind knowing that he would be able to play and stay in a home environment that he is used to. I came home to a happy dog that probably didn’t even care I left him behind. I will never have a second thought again about having to travel! Knowing that Oliver has a “second home” to stay at is such a great relief.   Robin B., Hollywood, PA

Dear Karen,

I just wanted to thank you so much for having Jackson stay with you last week during our vacation.  It made me feel so much at ease to know that his first "vacation" was in a safe environment with a person who clearly cares so deeply about dogs.  I'm so glad that you played Frisbee with him and it was so nice that you bathed him after such a rainy week.  Further, I know he had an awesome time playing with his canine friends.  It was funny, but Jackson was obviously sad to leave his temporary home.  Please do not hesitate to have future client's contact me for a reference -- I only have wonderful things to say!

Thanks again for everything. 
Denise (Jackson 's Mom)
