About Karen
** Receive 25% discount on dog walks when you book a Pet Care Service **

A big hello, I’m Karen

I was raised on a farm and spent all my spare time looking after cats, dogs, horses, cows, geese, chooks plus more. Years of pet-handling gives you an affinity with animals and vice versa - I feel at peace with animals and love caring for them.

More recently, Murray the Spoodle was in my full-time care. He was pampered with regular bathing, brushing, walking, cuddles on the couch etc. and he loved the addition of vegetables to his dry food. He was an adorable companion who loved sitting on my lap, even when at a café :0)

Prior to Murray was Sir Thomas. Sir Thomas was beautiful, fun, playful, warm, regal even, and the typical cat who walked away and disregarded you. My friends often asked if Wagyu beef or Salmon was on the menu. It wasn't always but I guess it shows how well I treated him.

I can’t wait to meet your pet/s - I’ll treat them like my own.

Dog / Cat pick-up or drop-off available. I have seat belts for dogs and a soft carry case for cats. I have Basic First Aid for Animals Certificate.

Yard is dig-proof with low level bricks around entire perimeter and a very high fence - potentially suitable for escape artists! UV protected clear roof for weather protection. Dog door for access to ground level of house. Grass, pavers, pooch day bed and outside mats.

Karen is trustworthy & amazing. Recently I was in hospital & had to stay an extra night. Unfortunataly my normal sitter had to go back to work on the other side of town. So I was extremely anxious as to what I was going to do. I found Karen & explained to her where everything was & nothing was a problem.

Karen has been such a great dog sitter for our puppy. We were sent daily photos and updates. Karen was also able to extend the time our puppy could stay at short notice.
