Introduction: I am a dedicated, responsible, educated (college degree) mature adult working primarily from home. I am also a pet lover who has owned dogs since the age of 6! Goldens, beagles and dachshunds (on my 4th) but love ALL dogs equally. In my spare time, I am a competitive runner and very active individual. If your pup has energy, I'm your woman. Playing, walking and snuggling just a few of my best attributes. Experience with rescues (all mine have been) as well as seniors. If your best friend needs another BFF, look no further! I have 2 years experience with dog walking for other clients and am happy to provide references upon request.

I called for a meet and greet. She lives literally right across the way from me. She seemed good for wanting to meet and set something up but when she got to my house all the sudden it was well I’m a realtor and didn’t seem to have time for me at all. I live in a really nice neighborhood and my puppy is an Australian Shepard. Said she would check her schedule never got back. It was strange. Wasn’t sure what happened? I just need some help walking my dog while I’m at work. It’s been hard to find someone for sure! I wish I could have given her 5 stars. Would have loved the help!! Any help at that. If anyone knows anyone. Let me know! Lol!! Thx.

Details: Dog • 1 pet • Taking pet outside • Providing companionship • Standard visit (60 minutes) • A few times a week • My home, venue, etc.

Hi Jaime, Thank you for your review. Unfortunately your work situation with such an uncertain schedule was not a good fit for me which I conveyed at our meeting would be a challenge. I have other clients on set schedules which is my preferred method. In addition, with a 7 month old energetic puppy, my belief is that you need consistency with the same person and someone who is willing and able to help with training. I wish you the best of luck!

Karen was professional and communicated well from our initial contact with her. She stayed in touch about her initial visit with Winry. She warmed up to Karen quickly! We’ll definitely use her services again!

Details: 1 dog • 2 - 10 years old • Large (41 - 70 lbs) • 30 minutes (standard) • Prefer a private walk for my dog(s) alone • My home, venue, etc.

I have very specific instructions for walking and feeding my older pit bull and Karen took the time to go over everything in detail. As an owner of a senior Doxie, she understood and cared about my concerns.
