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.)

I met Karen the week before so Murphy could get to know her. She was lovely and Murphy was completely comfortable with her and her pooch. When i dropped off Murphy he went straight in, tail wagging and i felt at ease leaving him. Will definitely use Karen again.
We were very happy with Karen as our cat's sitter! We returned to a happy and calm cat, quite different to our last experience away... Karen kept in touch daily with photos and videos of Jim, which was really good. Highly recommended!
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.
