About Karen

I'm a 28 year old medical professional from Ecuador, currently living with my husband and my cousin. I have two dogs, a beagle and a rescued schnauzer, whom I'm working to bring here. Animals have always been a big part of my life, and I've cared for a variety of pets since childhood, including turtles, rabbits, fish, birds, cats, and hamsters. My love for animals led me to work as a veterinary assistant and volunteer at animal shelters. Through these experiences, I've gained valuable skills in animal care and behavior. Caring for animals brings me a profound sense of peace and purpose, and I find great joy in forming bonds with them. I believe in providing compassionate care to all animals, and I'm dedicated to ensuring their well being.

About My Services:

- Included Services: I can administer medication to pets. However, I do not offer grooming services such as cutting hair or nails.

- Dog Boarding Capacity: I typically board only a few dogs at a time to ensure each receives individual attention and care.

- Dog Walks: I offer three 30-minute walks per day – in the morning, afternoon, and evening.

- Supervision: Pets will not be left alone for longer than 3 hours during dog boarding and no longer than 1 hour during daycare.

Time Commitment:

- Routine Integration:Pet care fits seamlessly into my daily routine as I work from home.

- Availability: I am available throughout the day to supervise and care for guest pets, ensuring they are never left unattended for long periods.

Home Environment:

- Household Members: I live with my husband and my cousin. We all share a love for animals.

- Pet Sleeping Arrangements: Guest pets sleep in the living room. Owners are encouraged to bring their pets' beds and food dishes to make them feel at home.

- Backyard: Our home has a large, fully fenced backyard with secure gates, providing a safe and enjoyable outdoor space for pets to play.

I live in Barrie and I can't pick up a dog outside Barrie ❤️
