“Our dog was clearly well taken care of with Karyn. She regularly sent up pictures and communicated what was happening while we were gone. Because she has dogs, we felt she knew how to take care of ours – and she did. We would recommend Karyn to anyone.” –Vaughn S.
“Thank you Karyn for taking care of Bella for me. I felt comfortable on my vacation knowing that Bella was in a loving and peaceful home. She is a very nervous dog so I appreciate your patience showing her kindness and warmth which made all the difference.” –Laura F.
“Our greyhound Coffee stayed at A Tucson Tail recently while we were out of town and Karyn was such a wonderful, caring sitter. Coffee got shorter walks tailored to her age, while Karyn walked her more active grey separately. Karyn sent us the cutest pictures of Coffee interacting, as well as her relaxing on the comfy doggie beds. Coffee says she’d love to stay with Karyn again the next time we’re gone!” –Joan A.
“My Donut loved staying with Karyn and her greyhounds! And I always felt secure that she was well cared for. Karyn treated Donut like one of her own dogs.” –Judith W.
“Harley was happy with Karyn and her pups and, of course, that made me happy!” –Kathy B.
“Over the years I have been taking my greyhounds to Karyn’s house. She is caring and trustworthy, mindful of their needs. They have the run of the house, and sleep on cushy beds (or couch). The dogs go for daily walks, and she gives meds if needed. My Mochi loves her.” –Loren D.
“My dog Franklin seemed to have had a wonderful time. I got sent pictures of him and notifications on what was going on. Karyn even went through the trouble to ask is my dog is afraid of fireworks so she may give him a homeopathic calming remedy. I will be using her services again in the future.” –Grace F.
“My dog came home healthy and relaxed after his stay at Karyn’s place. Sleeping on a sofa is so much better than a kennel floor!” –Holly S.
“I loved Karyn and her sweet greyhounds. For most dogs, she would provide a very caring home while you are away. Great back yard for exercise! Unfortunately, I have a large, strong, very pushy dog with too much energy. This type of dog may not suitable. I appreciated that Karyn was game enough to give him a try!” –Lynne D.
“The experience was excellent. Karyn took very good care of my dog Millie. I felt Millie was safe and well cared for. Karyn walked her every day more than once. Karyn also sent me a daily report usually with a picture. Very pleased.” –Cynthia A.
“Karyn is a great host for our beagle, Calvin! He feels at home with her and her dogs. He is always excited to stay. We like the peace of mind that he is being so well taken care of.” – Laurie M.
“Karyn is very dog savvy and did a wonderful job with Misty, my 10 year old greyhound. I highly recommend her.” –Angy S.
“My husband and I are very happy with the care that Karyn provided for our 10-year old Standard Poodle (Cookie) while we were out of town.
We were impressed with her thorough process and her attention to Cookie’s daily needs. Karyn made sure that Cookie got along with her dogs. She also asked questions to learn about Cookie’s daily habits, likes, dislikes, diet, health issues, and sleeping preferences. She wanted to provide her with a similar living environment (like we have) to avoid any distress. Karyn kept us updated and even emailed us a photo of Cookie all relaxed in a deep sleep.
When we returned, we picked up Cookie as planned. Cookie seemed happy to see us, but also sad to leave her new friends.
We are impressed with Karyn’s services and the way she cared for our Cookie. We would use her services again and again, without any hesitation.” –Hawaii and Erich R.
“This is the second time we had Karyn take care of our dog and he was very excited when we got there, wagging like crazy. And since we live most of the year in another state, it had been a year since he was last there. He is clearly happy there and Karyn is very thoughtful in sending us photos and notes about how he is doing. She is gentle and loving with her dogs and mine.” –Dottie W.
“Karyn did a great job with my dog. He got along very well with Karyn’s greyhounds and Karyn did a great job with him. She was meticulous about making sure that my dog would mix well with hers and wanted to be sure that there would be a good fit. It really paid off. Ike came home rested and happy. No problem recommending Karyn’s services to anyone with a senior dog.” –Chip B.
“Karyn is an experienced and thoughtful dog owner who used her knowledge to care for our dog. She was careful to introduce our dog to hers on neutral turf and then to ease into having them inside together. She recognized that our dog was different from hers and treated him accordingly. We used Karyn for dog day care and then for a 6 night stay. We knew we had made a good choice when our dog was excited and happy to return to Karyn’s. We highly recommend her.” –Michael W.
