Ask us about in-home pet care, and how to plan stress-free vacations.
Are you looking to go on a vacation or take some much needed time for yourself away from home and can't bring your pet? Stressed about leaving your furry friend behind?
In-your-home pet care offers many benefits compared to traditional boarding kennels. Here at Kara's Pet Care, we have seen it all! Many of our staff have worked in boarding kennels, and we've seen the stress a total change in environment can cause. Even for the most well-adjusted pets, we've seen cases of diarrhea, skipped meals, pacing, panting (a sign of anxiety), and other behavioral issues (kennel nose sores, chewing, barking, etc.) all from changing your pet's environment for a few days.
Alternatively, we formerly offered boarding in our home, treating your pets as one of our own. Here's what we noticed: pets were overall much calmer than we'd previously seen in boarding facilities, but only by about 50%.
We experimented further by applying what we'd learned and started offering in-home visits while owners were away. We saw NOT ONE SINGLE sign of extreme stress. It didn't matter whether we had a pet sitter overnight, how often visits were scheduled, or whether their routine was exactly the same. What mattered the most was that their environment was the same.
We don't want to see your pets under extreme stress.
Therefore, we highly encourage you to book in-home visits or overnight pet care for your beloved pets while you're away sipping rum drinks on a sunny beach in some wonderful destination.

We have a few services that work for a majority of pet owners. We highly recommend booking a meet and greet on the Handlr app before any vacation so we can communicate in person with what works best for you!
