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.  I’ve always loved cats though I don’t have one of my own.  Since adopting Diesel, 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!!

Beth Young, Overnight Pet Sitter

Beth grew up in South Georgia and has lived in Atlanta, Denver and back to Atlanta after finishing law school.  She is a tax and corporate attorney who also loves being an overnight pet sitter. She is extremely reliable and genuinely enjoys spending time with dogs and cats of all breeds and sizes. Sadly, her dog Levi crossed the rainbow bridge so loving on our client dogs is very fulfilling for her.  Beth enjoys hiking, camping, gardening, and just being outside in general.
