About Christine

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Someone's a little obsessed with dogs.

Playing fetch, long walks on a sunshiny day, smooching the top of a pooch's head, happy puppy snorts...sometimes it's the littlest things that make me happiest to be a dog sitter.

In addition to being a dog-mom to a dog who had seizures, I am experienced with
+ Senior dogs
+ High energy pups
+ Administering oral medication
+ Rescue dogs and those with special behavior/emotional needs
+ Dogs who aren't dog- or stranger- friendly.
...and, of course, dogs who want to be snuggled, held, and played with 24/7

When I dog sit...
+ I typically spend 18-24 hours per day with your dog, though my record is 55 straight hours with one adorable pooch.
+ You can specify if you want your dog to have 2, 3 or 4 walks per day (and/or frequent, short potty breaks). I typically walk dogs for up to 2 hours per day.
+ I'm happy to share a bed with your pup at night, but also understand that some dogs are more comfortable sleeping alone and/or in a crate.
+ Your dog will receive TONS of cuddles, doggy massages, affection and be treated with love, kindness, and respect.
+ I send detailed emails every 1-2 days with pictures and am always reachable via text or phone.
+ For stays exceeding five nights - and for dogs that are amenable to it - I'm happy to give your pup a bath before I leave.
+ I can gather the mail/newspaper and water indoor plants as instructed.
+ If in-unit laundry facilities are available, I will change the bedding and wash any towels before I leave. If they're not available, I will strip the bed.

*the 18 hour per day applies to Sat/Sun and 3 weekdays. I have to go into work the other 2 weekdays, so these include - at minimum - morning/evening walks and overnight. My boyfriend, (his DogVacay profile is below), oftentimes will be able to swing by and/or spend the whole day with your pup if he isn't booked. Otherwise, I suggest you have a dog walker to come mid-day; I'm happy to suggest dog walking services or arrange a walker on your behalf.

Am I already booked and you want another recommendation? Sergio is the only person I trust with dogs I love/sit for - we have dog sat many of the same dogs: https://dogvacay.com/i-adore-all-dogs-including-yours-dog-boarding-418212?sm=cam

Please note:
**I'm only able to dog sit in your home, as my landlord has a strict no-pets policy
**San Francisco proper only - thanks!
**all dogs in the pictures are pups I've cared for, mostly via DogVacay :)

As always, it's such an ease and pleasure to have Christine stay with our dogs! Recommend her highly but wish I could keep her for ourselves :)
Christine is so wonderful with our dogs. I feel like she treats them like her own, which is exactly what we love about her!! She is the absolute definition of professional and responsible. Easy to communicate with and always sending us updates when she is with them. I only wish she was available every time we go away!

Great host as always! she took really good care of our pets and home when we were out for more than a week. We even got daily updates, messages and photos showing them enjoying their vacay. Would definitely call her again!
