Laughing Pets Atlanta Dog Walking and Pet Sitting Team
Karen E. Levy, Owner, Dog Walker, Pet Sitter
Like many pet owners, I love animals!! My thirst for knowledge of “everything dogs” began several years ago when I adopted my fur-baby, Diesel. Since then I’ve spent countless hours learning about animal behavior, dog training, animal nutrition and best practices for caring for a happy, healthy pet. I’m certified in Pet First Aid & CPR and am an advocate for positive reinforcement training.
I’ve volunteered with various pet-rescue organizations such as Atlanta Pet Rescue and Canine Cellmates. My areas of volunteerism include being an adoption counselor, a dog-training assistant and raising funds totaling over $25,000.
In 2010 I founded Laughing Pets Atlanta and have been dog walking and pet sitting ever since. It’s my honor to be selected as a caregiver for my furry clients. Nothing makes me happier than waking up each day and seeing a bunch of laughing pets!!
