My experience with Bones K-9 was more than just a great one. It was NEEDED! My Golden Doodle, Honey, was purchased by me from a pet store. Upon getting her I was already able to tell that she had some behavioral issues, including extreme anxiety and fear to trust. I was extremely fearful of taking Honey on walks - let alone me ever bringing Honey to a boarder - my anxiety was through the ROOF! She would drag me, and she would only ever go up and down my block and never past that. So, I felt like Honey was just naturally a scared dog and that this is just something I had to “deal with”. I did not know how to work with her and get her out of her comfort zone. But that’s when Karen came in and did her magic! I took the chance and I brought Honey to Bones K-9. She was extremely scared to get in the car, but when she came back? She was a new dog! Karen introduced Honey to some new devices to help her go on walks. Honey is also a lot less skittish now and guess what? I can walk her! Around my neighborhood! We go on 40-50 minute walks! I never thought I would see that day. Karen updated me the entire time Honey was away with photos and videos. She also brought Honey to the park and spent time training her. I am so extremely thankful that I brought Honey to Bones K-9 and I do not regret it at all. All of my anxiety has been completely wiped away because of how well my baby was taken care of, and the fact that she was trusting of Karen, Roger and their children just makes my heart melt. THANK YOU! I will definitely be bringing Honey back to you - it was like a vacation for her! Thank you for opening your home and your hearts to my crazy girl. I am so thankful ❤️ I HIGHLY RECOMMEND USING THIS SERVICE! This will be the only place I use from now on!

Awwww!!!! Thank you so much for taking your time to write this beautiful and warming review. From the moment that I met Honey I knew that she was going to warm up to me. I won’t lie it took many treats...😋 But eventually she did and to me that was all that mattered. The bond that she created with my kids was so natural. She is so loving, warming and caring towards kids. It took a lot of patience, dedication and most of all love to work with her. To say in a short period of time she did extremely well. But most importantly the main focus here is you. Because you are keeping up with her training and you took all the tools that we gave you and to say that you yourself saw the difference in her. Even her personality has changed she’s more confident. Thank you for trusting us with Honey. I have to say she is my masterpiece of excellence...💖 Honey will forever be welcomed into our home with open arms. We love her so much and we will forever have a special bond with her. We can’t wait to see her again...🥰 With love... Karen from Bones K-9

Karen and her husband are clearly dog whisperers! They watched our 17 year old geriatric yorkie poo for the weekend and she came back to us cheery, smelling good and clearly very happy. They are caring people who treat every animal as if they are their own. We are so lucky to have found such responsible, reasonable, wonderful sitters for our fur baby!

Erik and Jordan thank you so much for trusting me and my family with Lucy. She was magnificent…🥰 It was so different having a fur baby smaller than my 2 cats. It was so much fun having a 17 year old dog, 17 and 15 year old cats…😍 We are so eager to have her again…😇🙏❤️

First, my dog adores Karen. He whines when she leaves bc he loves her so much. That was enough for me. Used Bones for a daily walk while we needed support. Wonderful, professional and truly caring. I would recommend to anyone!

Karen is a phenomenal walker. I first met with her for over 30 minutes and she made me feel very comfortable so the how she would be taking care of my 2 large dogs. Always communicative and I love the written report cards she leaves every walk. Highly recommend!

Charisse, Thank you so much for your kind words. I love my babies so much. They make my walks and interactions so interesting. Both are so loving, warm and full of zest. I love how after every walk they wait patiently for their treat…😋

Karen was such a delight. We had her sit our 5 month old for five days and I have no complaints. It was our first time away from our pup and Karen provided an update daily. Very easy to coordinate. Super responsive and truly has a talent for dog care. I almost think my dog didn’t miss me because of the great time she had over at K-9! Would definitely recommend to family and friends.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I offer discounts especially if there is more than one pet in the same household.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Everyone is different and I am lucky to have great clients.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    Well, I was a Dental Assistant/Tech and I was so passionate about it. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit unfortunately I had to make the most hardest decision of putting my career on hold. I joined forces with my husband and I decided to emerge into Bones K-9. Almost 2 years later and I have to say it was the best decision I had to make.
