Why choose KarelliArts for your companion care?
Here is what my clients have said:
"Karin always does a great job. She goes above and beyond what is required, is timely, reliable, and thorough. Karin is especially good with challeging dogs and anticipating their behaviors. I would trust her to only give the best and most loving care to your pets."
Andrea Lawson, Bedford Home Pet Care.
It is with great confidence that I write this letter of recommendation for Karin Strandnes, owner and operator of KarelliArts Pet Care. Karin has been pet sitting for us for the past year. We have two dogs ( 9 year old Shepherd and 5 year old black lab) and Karin gives them tons of love and attention when we are away. Our dogs love her! Karin takes our dogs for walks everyday and plays with them in the yard. ...Karin used the time to teach our dogs a few manners. We came home to dogs that learned to sit and wait for their dinner bowls. It was a nice surprise! Karin stays in touch with us when she is caring for our dogs. She communicates with us via text messages and emails during her stay. She sends photos and videos of our dogs enjoying their time with her. Karin makes sure we know our pets are getting good care when we are away. Karin has proven to be highly responsible and treats our home with great care. We fully trust her with our dogs and our home. "
"Karin has been an incredible pet sitter for us and our beautiful and crazy yellow lab, Jack and our precious cat, Trouble. We have been fortunate to have Karin in our lives for about a year and consider her a family member! She takes care of Jack three days a week, she sends pictures via texts of their fun and at times adventurous walks or silly things that they may do during their time together. We trust Karin that she will take care of our pets and our home, which is very reassuring to us from a safety perspective. Karin also leaves detailed notes about Jack and their time together so we are aware of any important details that we should know while away. I would highly reccommend Karin to anyone who is interested and would be happy make myself available if you wish to consider her for pet sitting. She far exceeded our expectations and I'm sure she will do the same for you and your beloved family pets!"
My Personal Story of how I began petsitting
After over 25 years experience as a professional Certified Dental Assistant, I opted to go into pet care. My working career has always been to care for others. Foster dog care was a great experience for me. I have become friends with the new parents of a Rottie that I fostered. My love of animals and the outdoors propelled me to change my path to a new direction. Personally, I have had several dogs, a cat, turtles, fish, rabbits, goats and parrots. I always had a dog/s and birds in my childhood. Even saving baby robins to healthy adults.
How did I come up with the name KarelliArts?
I wanted a name that was flexible. I took my name 'Karin' and my girl friend's name 'Kelli' and put them together...thus became "KarelliArts"
I enjoy reinventing and repurposing things, especially wood and metals. I have combined pet sitting with making pet products and people products. All unique and one of a kind. Never to be duplicated. So the art of re inventing one thing to another and the art of pet care....becomes KarelliArts
