Laughing Pets Atlanta Dog Walking and Pet Sitting Team

Karen Levy

Karen E. Levy, Owner

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!!
