GET TO KNOW US
Meet Karin (pronounced Ka-reen)! She is the Founder of Deer Valley Danes, LLC,
Snarky Bark – Snacks with Sass, The Snark Podcast, Facebook Blog Feeding Raw and the
author of Kingston’s Kitchen. Karin is on a mission to bring health and wellness to pets and their people & raise awareness about the industry!
The concept for Deer Valley Danes started at an AKC conformation show. While perusing the vendor stands, Karin noticed there were not a lot of healthy options for dog treats. She also noticed the exhibitors and handlers looked stressed. So she thought “We need a health and wellness shop for pets and people!”
As a raw feeder for over 15 years, Karin researched raw and homemade diets for pets. Her continued research led her to alternative and functional care for pets. Many pet health care remedies parallel people care, so she adds products that encouraged health and wellbeing for both people and pets. She continues to learn about the latest innovative studies on health and wellness for people and pet. This allows her to provide products that are researched for their efficacy and effectiveness.
Karin had been a Great Dane enthusiast for over 30 years. She shows her dogs in AKC conformation. Her beautiful bitch Daisy (MBISS GCH Hladik’s Jump Up and Kiss Me) showed successfully in the Top 20 several years in a row and now shows in Veterans at the grand age of 12.
Daisy’s gorgeous daughter Maisie (GCH Deer Valley’s Busy Being Fabulous CGC) took Winner’s Bitch at the Great Dane National and has several group placements. Ernie (Deer Valley’s The Importance of Being Ernie CGCA) and Dolce (star of Tik Tok) are our fun ambassadors to the breed.
Since childhood horses have been a part of Karin’s lift. She is a dressage enthusiast showing locally with her exquisite mare Adelaide WF.
At home Karin is married to her partner in crime Ken Roseman. Ken practices personal injury and medical malpractice law in Delaware. Their son, Zach, and his beautiful girlfriend Stephanie, live nearby in Wilmington and share the same love of Great Danes.
