About Karen

Hi, my name is Karen. I have had pets of all shapes and sizes throughout my life from goldfish, guinea pigs & mice to the usual cats and dogs. Currently my housemate is a rescued moody brown tortie, 12 year old cat. Think she just tolerates living with me...as long as I feed her! She is an indoor cat so only uses a litter tray, so changing these is not a problem.

I am an experienced dog owner (always rescue dogs) having had three dogs in the past, all of terrier breed so used to the more mischeavious dog. I am confident giving medication both oral and injectable, can apply creams, shampoos etc if required. One of my previous dogs was very nervous and had to be walked away from other dogs and had to be kept on lead, so I'm happy to take out similar dogs. Please be aware I only accept bookings for smaller breeds (up to cocker spaniel size).

I am able to offer early morning and afternoon/evening visits (30 mins per visit) to feed, change litter/cages, and generally give some time and attention to your furry family members, and local doggy walks up to 45 mins. Smaller pets are just as important and I'm more than happy to clean cages out and let your little furry stretch their legs outside their cage, if this is what they're used to.

From personal experience I know that pets prefer to be looked after in their own homes rather than have the stress of a stay in a cattery/kennel. I endeavour to make the time apart from you as relaxed and stress free as I can. 

Areas I can cover for visits are: BD13, BD14, BD15 & HX2.

Karen was great with our 10 week kitten whilst we were on holiday. She spent time playing with Rosie and gave lots of cuddles. Karen even watered our hanging baskets during the heatwave. Will use again.

I was anxious about leaving rolo for the first time. However rolo was very happy and content which made more relaxed. I got regular updates and pictures. Karen was lovely
