About


Hi there, I'm Karyn.

I semi-recently moved back to Seattle after living in San Francisco for a few years.  I decided to get back to what I love the most- animals!  I have fostered 17 kittens for MEOW (not all at once, don't worry), 2 pugs for Pug Pros (in Northern CA), had a 14 year old deaf pug named Auggie, and have also owned a cat that lived to the ripe old age of 23!  I'm very experienced with large dogs as my family had a Mastiff, a Newfoundland, and a Bernese Mountain Dog as I was growing up. 

My experience:

  • 11 years as a petsitter for cats, dogs, kittens, puppies, fish, and small mammals
  • 3 years as a dog walker for large and small dogs
  • 1.5 years as a volunteer at the Oregon Humane Society where i handled dogs of all sizes and temperments and every kind of cat
  • 18 years as an owner of dogs and cats

I strongly believe in positive reinforcement, cuddling, toys, off-leash walks whenever possible, and lots of yummy and little treats.  I truly understand how much your pets mean to you and I want to become a part of your lives.  I also know that you didn't get in to pet ownership to go completely bankrupt, so my prices are quite reasonable.

So, drop me a line and we can work out a good plan for you and your little guys and gals!  I'll respond to your emails within a few hours: info@moochypoochy.com and phone calls as soon as I can: 206-979-3842
