About Chris

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hey guys - I'm a work-at-home tech entrepreneur, former attorney, and SF native (all that means is I pay attention to details and am at home to watch the "kids"). We have an extremely friendly and dog-buddy-verified weimaraner named Hero, and I have had dogs my entire life so I speak dog (woof in French and German too). I've previously had a black lab and a Staffordshire terrier, and have trained all my dogs both on- and off-leash with verbal and hand commands. Because we now have an active Weim, I take him to Point Isabel, Sibley, or Redwood Bowl daily (if you've ever seen a Weim with a full tail running around any of those places, that's us) - your dog can join us on these trips if you'd like, or if your dog needs more home time, that's cool too. I'm definitely the alpha dog in the house, so pups pay attention to me. And not to worry if there are any missteps - we have concrete floors and no-concern plants, so your dog will be handled politely, firmly, and by someone very dog-knowledgeable. We have a 4Runner that fits any dog comfortably for pick up or transport. Also, I don't make a living off of dog care - I just take it seriously because I have a dog and I care. ALSO PLEASE NOTE - I ONLY ACCEPT 1 DOG RESERVATION AT A TIME, TO ENSURE THEY'RE TREATED LIKE FAMILY. AND PLEASE NOTE - WE HAVE A TODDLER IN THE HOUSE, SO NO RESERVATION REQUESTS IF YOUR DOG ISN'T KID FRIENDLY. THIS WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED (BECAUSE I HAPPEN TO LOVE MY DAUGHTER). And we live in a neighborhood called "Dogtown" - so there's that. :)

Chris was a great host for my lip pup. I highly recommend him.
Chris was amazing. My Lil pup seemed to have had a great time and was happily exhausted when I picked him up. I look forward to leaving my pup with Chris again.
Benjamin had such a fun time with Chris and his family! He was also great with sending photos of Benjamin.
