About Karen

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’ve recently decided to throw in the ‘corporate towel’ and return to where I began as an animal companion. 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.

Regarding giant dogs I'm happy to sit at owners house. I have a medium back yard so potentially not suitable for giant dogs - sorry
Happy to walk and visit any size dog as I love them all :0)

HOT DAYS - please make contact if your dog would like to COOL OFF at the beach this summer!!

Karen has been absolutely amazing throughout an overseas trip. I have a very sensitive tabby, who likes to hide away from anyone, but took very well to Karen, even started waiting for her at the window! Can't speak highly enough of.
