Not for the first time, we recently had the pleasure of using the services of Karen and Home Minding Plus.

Karen invited our beloved dog Harley into her home while we went on an 11 day vacation. Harley feels safe and settles  in as soon as she is dropped off. Karen takes the time to pass on periodic photos while we are away, and will contact us with any questions or concerns.

As well, on the Home Watch Plus side, Karen visits our home, and does a thorough check while we are away. She even waters Lucy’s precious house plants!

Home Watch Plus and Karen make our travels very relaxing and we highly recommend this service!

Our experience with Karen Bukacz at HomeMinding Plus was very good. We were out of town and asked Karen to look after our dog, check up on the house and water the plants. The work was done well with great attention to detail. It was a relief to know that we were being taken care of and our precious dog was in good hands. Great job!

With Karen taking care of things, I can enjoy my vacations without worrying about my home.

HomeMinding Plus has given us peace of mind every time we go away. Our home, cat, and gardens are always so well taken care of. We came back from a vacation just when COVID was starting and had to self-isolate for 14 days. Karen was so helpful during the stress of coming back to Canada and went to get us essential groceries to stock our fridge so that we had food upon our return. HomeMinding Plus has been such an excellent service for us over the many years we have used them and continues to surprise us with new services tailored to our needs. We highly recommend!

We have a 15 year old “stuck in her ways” Chihuahua.She stayed with Karen for a month when we went to Australia.She was happy, calm and she ate. She never eats when I’m gone so that was a big concern for me.

She was taken care of, loved, and for sure spoiled.Karen also provided me with funny, daily blogs of her adventures.

If you want to go away and have peace of mindwith no worries for your pet, Karen is who you need to hire!

HomeMinding Plus has looked after our home and pets on many occasions. Karen is reliable, trustworthy and flexible to accommodate all our needs.
Each of our 3 pets ( who are always excited to see her ) requires different levels of care and she goes above and beyond!
It is so nice to have a worry-free vacation! We highly recommend

Karen and I have known each other professionally and personally for 25 years. In the early days, she reported to me as a staff member in the children’s service sector for 6 years. More recently, she assisted with my HomeMinding Plus clients for 3 years, on a casual basis. When it became time to transition my business to someone else, Karen was the first person I thought of and approached. She grabbed the entrepreneurial opportunity with gusto! 

Over the years she has consistently displayed a strong work ethic, and has proven herself to be reliable and trustworthy. Her people skills, fondness for pets, and sense of humour are a definite asset, and help put people at ease. SInce the passing of the torch in January 2020, she has worked hard to ensure a smooth transition for clients, and grow the business. For reliable care of your most valuable assets when you’re away, I encourage you to call HomeMinding Plus for a consultation.
