Our happy pups...

Hear what our visiting family members have to say.

"We knew right away our experience with Kari was going to be a great one when she handled her paperwork way ahead of time and had our dogs come to visit with her to get acquainted. She welcomes you and your dogs with open arms. While you are away, you receive texts and plenty of photos of your dogs hard a play! When you return, you can see by your dog's behaviors that they are very happy and comfortable. And on top of everything else, Kari sends you home with at Ruff-port card on how your dogs did while you were away - that extra special touch. We are so happy we found Kari...that we don't give it a second thought on leaving our best friends with her."

"I have been searching for a place like Home Away From Home k9 Care for years! I am glad I finally found a second home for my dog Martha, where she feels loved and cared for. Kari is amazing, I trust her with Martha completely. Now, my vacations are completely free of stressful thoughts about my dog, I know Martha is in the best hands possible.  :).
Thank you Kari!"

"Home Away From Home K9 Care is our dog's second favorite place to be (1st being her own home). We think she likes playing more with Emma and Ethan more than going to the beach. Anytime we are gone for more than 8 hours in a day, we drop our dog off and know that when we come back to get her, she will be happy from the attention and tired from all the exercise. We are comfortable and confident leaving her in Kari's care, who is sensible, responsible and grounded"

We left our dog, Gus, with Home Away From Home K9 Care for a long weekend. Gus is normally very shy around new people, but he loved Kari right away! She has such an obvious love and caring heart for animals and treated our dog like she does her own. We especially liked the "crate free" aspect and that Gus was able to play in the yard and indoors as well. We highly recommend Home Away From Home K9 Care and will definitely be using their great services in the future!"

"I have been so pleased and excited about having my dog with Kari Ramirez at Home Away From Home K9 Care.  Carlee is a high energy dog who is at home alone during the day while we work, and who just needs more daily exercise and socialization than we can provide with our work schedules.  Going to "doggie daycare" with Kari has been a perfect fit for our needs.  When Carlee is with Kari I know that she will be in a safe, secure environment, with someone trained in animal behaviors who helps reinforce the training we have done and who is willing to work with us if any new behavior issues surface.  Carlee is a dog who will definitely push the limits, so it is important to me that she be with someone who has the knowledge and experience to keep her focused on behaviors we expect.  I love knowing that Carlee is in a "home" environment and is able to work off some of her high energy while socializing with Kari's family and dog.  It's great that Kari limits the number of dogs she cares for at any time because that means my dog get lots of exercise, love and attention!   Although I haven't yet had the need, I plan to take advantage of Home Away From Home's overnight boarding services because knowing that Carlee will be in an environment that is familiar and where she is comfortable will make it so much easier to leave her while we are gone.  Thank you Kari for providing great care and such well rounded dog care options for families like ours."

"I frequently travel for work, and when I'm away I know the one thing I absolutely don't have to worry about is the care my dog is receiving. My adored mutt, Bailey, is always excited to see Kari and Emma, at Home Away From Home. Bailey doesn't socialize a lot with other dogs, so being at Home Away From Home gives her that opportunity in a private, supervised setting. It's been a great environment for Bailey and Kari's experience and personal touch put me at ease when I'm stressed from traveling."
