Hello, my name is Karen, owner of Karen For The
Dogs. I lost Bailey, my 9 year old Golden Retriever in June of '06
to liver cancer. He was an amazing dog that traveled
everywhere with me, even to work. He loved playing in the
snow, the sound of children’s laughter, playing with tennis balls
and swimming at the local park.
Not having the heart to bring another dog home and with my two
daughters starting their own lives and families, I was a true empty
nester. I love my cat Cotton and my cockatiel Popeye, but it
was not the same as my best friend Bailey greeting me at the door.
When my friends starting traveling and taking vacations, I jumped at
the chance to bring home their dogs and once again, I enjoyed the
love and laughter only a dog can give. A friend of mine had
suggested I do this as a business upon retuning for her dog, after a
long weekend away. What a great idea!
I continued to work full time and pet sit part time, however,
a year later I was given a wonderful opportunity to pursue my
passion of pet care full time.
Let me love your dog as I did my own. I watch various breeds and
personalities of pooches in my home.
Is your pet part of the family?Comfortable sleeping in your bed? Over night stays or long vacations.

Description of Services
Overnight in my Home Dog Sitting
I now know there is a true need for my services. I never boarded
Bailey and I realized other dog owners were looking for an alternative
to kenneling. I also know Bailey was special and part of my family,
just as your dog is to you and your family. No one wants to put their
beloved friend in a cold concrete kennel. Even the best of kennels,
your dog is left alone at night and on the weekends, only a skeleton
crew to feed your dog and clean out the cages. This can be very
stressful on your dog. With
Karen for The Dogs, owners go away with a peace of mind knowing their
dog becomes part of my family and is loved and spoiled.
Doggy Day Care
Doggie day care has become increasingly popular. Owners work
long hours and need an outlet for their furry kids. Puppies learn
important socialization skills while larger dogs burn off that
enormous pent-up energy. This reduces separation anxiety and
eliminates destructive behavior that results from boredom and lack of
attention. A large fully secure back yard where dogs can romp and play
or indoors where your dog can play quietly or nap on the couch with a
“just like home”
are supervised closely, good behavior and manners are encouraged with
positive reinforcement. Doggie day
care is offered Monday, Tuesday & Thursday.
Dog Walking/Potty Breaks
My service also includes dog walking and potty breaks. This is a
great benefit for the active dogs, puppies or senior dog who’s
owners have deadlines and work late, owners that can not get home at
lunch time to let their dog out or just want me to play with them and
tire them out. Owners come home to a happy dog.
Cat Care/Small Caged Critters
I will come to your home to care for your kitty, litter box change
and cage maintenance for small caged critters. I grew up owning
gerbils, guinea pigs, hamsters and I even rescued a baby squirrel,
Cashew, which fell out of his nest.
