Years Caring for Dogs 8
I live in a condo in a great neighborhood surrounded by 132 landscaped and wooded acres so your pet will have plenty of roaming space while on their supervised walks. It is very quiet and pet friendly. Reagan National airport is only 10 minutes away.
Because my English cocker spaniel Charly gets anxious being around large dogs with high energy levels, I can only board small or medium sized dogs. I can board your pet on the weekends and am more than happy to take doggies during the week who are used to a working schedule and are fine being left alone for at least 8 hours. If you do need boarding during the week we can certainly discuss what your pet’s needs entail. Two walks a day is the norm for Charly and I so I will provide the same for your pet.
My dog Charly is a sweet rescue dog who's a gracious and experienced overnight host to other dogs. Be assured that your pet will be well looked after and provided much personal attention while in a comfortable and cozy environment! Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. Charly and I look forward to meeting your pet!
~Note, if you are unable to pick up your dog before 2pm on the last day of their stay, an extended day care fee of $15 will be added.
Below are some reviews of Christina R from real dog owners who have used their services on DogVacay.com!
Christina is a warm and wonderful host! Cocoa always loves staying with Christina and Charly.
Christina did a great job watching my pooch last weekend. Her dog Charlie is a great company for my Lola.
Christina did an amazing at taking care of my dog over the weekend. I also loved how Christina's dog Charlie is sweet but also understands doggie boundaries, so they got along perfectly. I would definitely recommend that if you're looking for a quiet home for your dog to stay while you're away, Christina is the perfect sitter.
I left Kona, my sweet but painfully shy American Bullnese (pug/french bulldog mix), in Christina's hands for about a week, and words can't convey how happy I am with the results. Christina was organized, thoughtful and, most importantly, patient with a shy dog and an owner (me) who was incredibly paranoid about leaving my dog behind (Kona usually travels with me but couldn't this time due to a family medical issue that I was tending to). I received pictures every day showing me how well my little one was getting along. And amazingly I saw that my shy dog actually made a couple canine friends! I can't say enough how wonderful it felt to leave my little princess in a warm, loving home with someone who treated her just like she was a member of her own family. And I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Charly, Christina's beautiful, laid-back spaniel mix who has mastered the art of hosting guests. This was an incredibly comfortable fit for my super-shy dog, and at this point (barring a scheduling issue), I can't imagine sending Kona anywhere else. Thanks again Christina!
Christina is a wonderful dog sitter and Charly, her Cocker Spaniel, is a sweet dog host. Christina sent updates to me, with pictures, every day I was gone, which helped me feel better about leaving my little baby, Bella. I felt that Bella was well taken cared of and that she had a lot of fun!
Once again, Cocoa came home from Christina's happy and relaxed. The photos Christina sent while we were away were adorable and reassured us that Cocoa was having a great stay. Thank you, Christina!
Our dog, Josie, has now stayed with Christina and Charly three or four different times, and each time she comes back happy, rested, and well fed. Josie doesn't normally interact with other dogs, but the photos from Christina show that maybe Josie and Charly are starting to become friends, which is a bit of a miracle and a very good thing. Christina has always been very flexible with dropping Josie off and picking her up and has always given Josie the medicines she needs and even tolerated Josie's insistence on sleeping in the bedroom. We'll definitely be back when it's time for Josie to go on another Vacay.
Christina was wonderful. After our meet and greet, I felt very comfortable leaving AO with her. She asked lots of questions and made sure that she knew exactly how to take care of our guy, and she did a wonderful job. She sent us pictures everyday so we go to see what he was up to as well.
Christina is fantastic, my dog had a great time with her. We will definitely be contacting her again the next time we go out of town.
Bailey had another great stay with Christina and Charly!
Cocoa had another great stay with Christina and Charly! We always feel good about leaving our little furry baby in such a nice environment and with such a friendly and responsible caretaker. Thank you, Christina!
Christina was a fantastic host for my dog Prince. I was looking very last minute and she was fast and wonderful with my dog. This is the first time I have picked him up after being away and he was totally at ease. Thank you Christina for your care!
We loved leaving Porter with Christina. She had a welcoming home in a beautiful wooded area. She kept in touch with us the whole time and made us feel very secure leaving our dog with her. She was flexible with pick-up and drop-off when we needed to head to the store to prepare for Sandy. Thanks!!
Christina took superb care of our chihuahua, Cocoa. We loved receiving texts and pictures while we were traveling, and Christina has a wonderful warm manner and a clear knowledge of and compassion for animals. Her dog Charly is also a total sweetie. We will be back for more DogVacays with Christina!
Josie enjoyed her vacay with Christina which consisted of sleeping wherever there was something soft, going on walks in the neighborhood, and generally sniffing around. Christina lives in a great neighborhood with lots of trees that make for a very relaxing vacation for our urban dog. We won't hesitate about sending Josie on another vacay with Christina and Charly.
Again, Tootsie had a wonderful stay with Christina R. When we go on vacation we rest assured that Tootsie is in the best hands. Christina even sends us photos daily to update us on how the stay is going!
Christina watched my dog Bailey for five days and I couldn't be more pleased with the experience. Bailey had a great time at her house and came home a happy pup. Christina was great at sending updates and keeping me informed on how Bailey was doing while I was gone. I would highly recommend her!
Christina was great with our basset hound Millie. She was really flexible with out drop off time and pick up time and she sent us photos of Millie, while we were away. Millie seemed really relaxed and happy when we came to pick her up. I would recommend Christina and will be booking with her again in the future.
Having Tootsie watched by Christina was our very first DogVacay experience so we were a little bit nervous. She did a wonderful job of putting us instantly at ease by walking us through her plans for the weekend and by keeping us updated on how things were going with photo texts. She made sure that Tootsie got plenty of exercise and play time. When Tootsie didn't eat on her own (which sometimes happens when she's in a new place) Christina even hand-fed her! When we returned from our trip we found a very happy dog. We will definitely go with Christina again...a more reliable and responsible person we couldn't even imagine!
Christina was a wonderful person. She took care of Toffee as he was his own, with attention and love. Receiving daily photos was comforting, as I could see how happy and playful he was. Many thanks Christina.
