Hello, I'm Karen
I've always been an animal lover. During my childhood we had cats, dogs and were able to spend time with horses as well. Over the last 25+ years I have owned and loved German Shepherds and in 2018 adopted Phoebe who is a Shepherd/Husky crossbreed.
As a young adult I would look after my friends dogs cats and homes, including Jedd the Rhodesian Ridgeback, Sam and Clarence, Heinz 57 dogs and since 2016 when I set up my own business I have looked after Bentley (staffy), Jerry-Lee & Hiro (both french bull dogs), Parker (GSD) and Bailey to name a few, while their owners have been on holiday. My son and I really enjoy spending time walking out with ours and your dogs, getting to spend cuddle time at home with them and playing games in the garden.
I also walk lots of different breeds of dogs during the week, sometimes on their own, sometimes with other dogs, depending on each dogs needs and their owners preferences.
Initially I like to come and visit your home and be introduced to your special girl/s and/or boy/s and preferably walk out with you all to get to know you and your dog (this consultation is free of charge.)

Really happy with Karen's support for our pets, and so were they! Lots of photos sent, and all was well, giving us peace of mind while we were away.
Karen was really great. We met her beforehand and I had no doubts that our dogs would be well looked after. I was more concerned that Karen would have a sleepless night because Molly and Bryn had never stayed with someone new or slept downstairs. Karen sent us Whatsapps with photos and videos showing that they had made themselves at home and were very happy.
I have completed a Canine First Aid Course in 2018 with the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers and in 2019 Canine Body Language Course and also a 2 day introduction course for Dog Training with IMDT.
