About Karen
PRICES ARE NEGOTIABLE... Read more for Bio

Hello :) I'm Karen. I'm 31 years old from England and am new to Madpaws, but have been training and walking dogs since my family adopted a rescue collie over 20 years ago. I am energetic, friendly and patient and love all animals, big and small. I have no problem walking dogs several times a day for an hour each time and I make their safety my priority, as well as making sure they get enough exercise and stimulation. I also make sure that all dogs in my care get basic training on lead and near roads and the learn the right way to socialise with other dogs and people. I have good experience in creating confidence in timid dogs and teaching excitable dogs when to be calm.

So if you need someone to look after your pets while you are away, need help walking them a few extra times a week, or would like your pup to gain some improved obedience or confidence then please get it touch. I look forward to hearing from you :)

Karen is extremely reliable & bonded w/Coco right away. By the 2nd visit Coco was giving up belly rubs which she doesn’t do for everyone! We also loved getting the video updates of their time together to know Coco was happy, settled & in very good hands.

Karen was an excellent sitter who was in tune with Hector and treated him as her own. I can not recommend her more highly.
