“Great Family!  Never worried once-they even posted an update with pictures for us.  Our dog fell in love with this family and it was a little hard to get her to leave them:)  If you love your dog like family-this is the place you want them to be when they can't be with you!"
Frances & Blair Simmons (Parents of Lulu)
"Our pups felt at home with Keren and her family.  They were well taken care of and really enjoyed themselves.  We felt completely comfortable leaving them with her.  She and her family went the extra mile to make sure they were comfortable.  She treated them as if they were her own which made the whole experience wonderful."
Tracy and Chris Goff (Parents of Baxter & Matilda)
"I highly recommend Keren Smith for pet sitting.  She watched our dog Janey for three days and nights and I never felt more comfortable regarding Janey's safety and fun.  Their house is clean and welcoming and her family, including pets, if full of nothing but love for one another.  I called to check on Janey and Keren even offered to put Janey on the phone.  When we picked her up, she was excited but didn't want to come home.  Again, I highly recommend Keren and her family."
Amy Hogan (Parent of Janey)
"I took my retriever to Keren in haste cause I was late to a meeting and couldn't leave my dog in the car.  We didn't even have time for a doggy introduction but it wasn't necessary!  My dog Haley was so happy when I came to pick her up and acted like she was already part of Keren's family!  Thx so much for lovin my girl!!!"
"(Mommy of Haley)
"I took my standard poodle, Mr. Lewis, to first visit and then stay with the Smith family.  He was so at ease and happy there that I did not worry or feel badly about leaving him for a few days.  It really did feel like a "Home Away From Home!"
Linda (Mommy of Mr. Lewis)
"We made a last minute reservation and she was able to take our dog in.  While rushing through getting ready for our trip we forgot to pack his medication (he has arthritis) so although she still walked our dog, she modified it so that it wouldn't be too much for him.  She kept us updated on his stay via email and sent photos too!  Keren was great!"
Mimi (Mommy of Chili)
"Keren recently watched our girl, Kalia, for three nights while we visited Mickey Mouse in Southern California.  We received pictures of her which assured us she was iin good hands.  Kalia looked so happy and made herself right at home.  When we returned, Kalia was just as tired from her vacation as were we.  She gave us a few kisses and then went and laid on her blanket for the rest of the evening.  We couldn't be more happy with Keren's pet sitting services and will definitely be using her again."
Tina (Mommy of Kaila)
"Keren & Joel took wonderful care of Wally while I was away at a conference.  The regular e-mails with photos of Wally spending time with their family were wonderful to get and showed Wally having a great time with everyone in the house.  He was relaxed and happy when I came to pick him up.  I would highly recommend Keren to anyone looking to have their dog stay with a loving family while they are away!"
John (Daddy of Wally)
"Thanks for taking such good care of our babies!  They seem very happy and content about the weekend away, and it was nice to have them somewhere close so we could get them back on the same day.  Scott said Sebby seemed very attached to you.:)"
Lacey (Mommy of Sebby & a rat!)
"We are so happy that Keren was able to take care of our Golden Retriever Cooper while we were on vacation.  From the very moment we dropped him off we felt at ease.  We received emails with updates and photos every day.  Our pup got plenty of attention and love:  he played with Keren's kids, went on hikes and walks on the beach.  Thank you Keren, for making us and Cooper feel so comfortable!"
Andrew & Elista (Daddy & Mommy of Cooper)
"We loved having Bella stay!  We knew she wasn't lonely and she came back to us in better shape after all the great walks.  The photo's really helped us to have peace of mind while we were away." 
Judy (Mommy of Bella)
"Keren, thanks so much for caring for our boy over the past few days!!  It was so nice seeing the photos and knowing he was having a blast."
Lauren (Mommy of Bismark)
"Keren was amazing with our dog.  We were out of the country, so I needed to find someone I could trust-and Keren provided a family atmosphere like what our Cammie is used to-kids and all.  Keren let us bring our crate because that's what Cammie is used to sleeping in at night and I think that helped Cammie feel at home in her new temporary home.  Keren is organized, an excellent communicator, and fantastic with the dogs.  She provided frequent photo updates so we could see that Cammie was having fun at the beach and at home. doesn't take anything more than she can handle (numbers-wise); there were only a couple of other dogs with her during Cammie's stay. Keren   When we picked up Cammie to bring her home today, it was like picking up a kid from a (calm) playdate with a couple of her friends-she was part of the gang.  I give my highest recommendation for Keren.  I plan to be a regular with Keren, and already have her booked for our next getaway!"
Patricia (Mommy of Cammie)
"Keren did an amazing job with our dog, Junior, this past weekend.  I contacter her on such a short notice and she was able to accommodate our needs.  Just from speaking with her over the phone, I knew immediately that this is who I wanted to watch our dog while we were away.  She even sent us a photo of him during his stay.  I felt completely at east knowing that he was there.  After picking him up, I could tell that Junior had a great stay with Keren and her family.  I will definitely be contacting Keren again in the near future if I need someone to watch our dog."
Mary (Mommy of Junior)
"Keren and her family do an amazing job taking care of our girl.  I do not worry at all when she is with them and am able to relax and enjoy my vacation knowing that her and her kiddos are literally competing over who gets to have her in their room that night.  It is obvious that they pay a lot of attention to the dogs in their care and that they truly love doing what they do.  I plan on taking my dog to her anytime we go out of town."
Justine (Mommy of Mocha)
"Keren and her family were great!  Our puppy had a great time spending the week with her and her kids.  She made him feel like he was home.  She also sent pictures a few times while we were gone as well to show us how much fun they were having."
Andrew (Daddy of Big Sir Franklin)
"I cannot say enough about how much we appreciated Keren's wonderful care of our beagle, Peanut.  Peanut is a handful, to say the least!  She is very active and very, very food oriented.  I was worried that she would be too much for Keren, but our week away from home turned out to be a nice week-long vacation for Peanut, too!  While we were gone, Keren emailed us pictures of Peanut playing on the beach with her kids and the other dog "guests," along with a few other fun photos of Peanut enjoying sitting on Keren's lap and playing in the backyard.  She took great care of our fur kid and we'd love to have her watch Peanut again.  Thanks, Keren!"
Page (Mommy of Peanut)
"Thank you to Keren and her family for taking excellent care of my dog over the weekend.  I felt very comfortable leaving him in her hands.  It was a relief to know he was hanging around their home and family for the weekend instead of sitting in a kennel.  I would definitely use Keren again."
Dana (Mommy of Rollie)
"Thank you to Keren for taking such great care of Scooby, knowing he was a part of your family made all the difference!"
Suzie (Mommy of Scooby)
"Bumpy's first stay with Keren was perfect.  He was so excited to see he was going back to her home when we drove up.  Bumpy and I have done a meet and greet with Keren.  From the minute walked in her door he was gone, sniffing, exploring, meeting the dog of the house.  To pick him up at the end of his first stay with Keren and find him happy and tired after a trip to the beach and a walk was wonderful.  I could tell he had bonded with Keren and I will not hesitate scheduling another visit."
Joyce (Mommy of Bumpy)
"Keren and family were absolutely wonderful!  Keren responded within just a few hours to my request to watch my dog Eva and was very willing and flexible in doing a meet and greet.  At the meet and greet I felt instantly at ease about Keren and her family looking after Eva.  Everyone in the family was very welcoming of eva and me, and Keren was generous in offering her time to learn about Eva, as well.  Keren is very tuned in with dogs and sensitive to their needs.  Eva is a rescue dog and very wary with new people.  Keren immediately sensed this with her, sat down on the floor, and made a connection with Eva.  I was very appreciative and impressed by this.  Zancoo, their pug is also a delight and was very easy for Eva to get along with.  While I was away, Keren sent pictures of Eva, who was warmly brough into their family and had lots of time at the beach.  When I arrived to pick up Eva, she was relaxed and happy.  I highly recommend Keren and her family.  Wonderful dog caregivers!"
Deb (Mommy of Eva)
