About Christy

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello,

I'm Christy and I can't wait to get to know your dog. I provide a fun and nurturing home away from home for your loved ones, in Pittsburgh PA. You can rest assured that your dog has the constant attention that is needed to help him or her through the difficult time of being apart from you.

I'm a huge animal lover and enjoy getting to know the unique personality of each dog that I watch. I hope to develop a long-term relationship with your pet so that they have a place to go that offers stability and comfort while you are away.

I welcome the opportunity for you and your pet to meet me before your dog's vacation begins! At this time you can also provide me with details of your pets personality, schedule, and special needs. This also gives your dog the chance to get acquainted with the surroundings and have a look around to make sure that they like the place as well.

I understand how difficult it is for both parents and their pups to be separated and it is my goal to make it a little easier for everyone. I hope to hear from you soon!

Note: I love cats and offer cat sitting as well as dog sitting! I'm happy to stay at your house or visit your kitty while you're away.

Christy was great! She sent me daily pictures of my dog Theo and I knew he was well taken care of. I will definitely ask Christy to watch my dog agin!
I had my 1 yrs old large breed doberman over the weekend at Christy's house. Christy was wonderful! My dog sometimes can't hold at night and Christy was OK with it. She sent pictures of my dog and looks like Bandit and my dog become friends. They slept together. I am very happy I left my dog with Christy and her boyfriend. They had a long walk with dogs and when we take our baby back she was happy as always! I will definitely come back!
Thanks to Christy and her boyfriend of the very good care of my beautiful baby!

Juno has stayed with Christy 5 times now, and we couldn't be happier with our experience! Every time, Christy has been great at communicating and has been very flexible regarding pick-up and drop-off times. She sends frequent picture-updates while we're away, and we've never had anything bad to report! I know its tough to trust a "stranger" with your family member, but Christy has always treated Juno like her own.

I would absolutely recommend her!

Christy cares for my two dogs during my wedding day and overnight to the next day. I was very nervous to leave them with anyone I don't know, but she listened to my concerns and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. They loved her dog, Bandit! She was patient with one of my more shy dogs and let her warm up to her. I got picture updates frequently and I could tell they were having a great time playing. They came home with tails wagging! Thanks Christy!

Our usual dog sitter was not available and we heard about DogVacay from a friend. We read Christy's review on line along with a multitude of others. We saw that she lived within very reasonable walking distance of a park and we were familiar with the area. As you can imagine, we were concerned about the girls while we were gone, but we were reassured, almost daily, that they were well. She posted photos along with answering any questions we had. We met up with her a month before we left and were pleased that she seemed responsible and obviously loved dogs.

Our dogs were well taken care of and we would not hesitate to seek her out again should the need arise.

Thank you again for being such a lovely person!
Thankyou again for watching Trevor, It's good to have piece of mind!
Christy was great! Loved all the pictures that she sent me during Maya's staying with her. She was always calm and did everything to make the whole experience the best possible.
Christy and Bandit are fantastic! There's plenty of room in the home for our dog to explore and most importantly nap! Christy's residence also has a fenced in area in the back for the dogs to spend time outside. Overall, I highly recommend Christy.
Lupo loves going to Christy's house and hanging out with Bandit. He always comes home super tired from all the fun :)
My husband and I are relieved and grateful for Christy's care of our dog Trevor. He was safe and sound with her and we look forward to Trevor being able to stay with her again. I 100% urge you to trust her with your Furball!
Christy is wonderful. This was Hank's first weekend away, and he returned happy and in good spirits. I loved seeing photo updates and was able to relax and enjoy my trip knowing he was in capable hands. Thanks for taking such good care of my goofball!

Christy was wonderful with our pup. As a matter of fact, when my husband went to pick him up, this was the first time that he seemed content enough to want to stay. Nice to have pictures sent to us, and nice to know that he is in such good hands.
Christy is a great dog sitter. My dog was in good hands and I didn't worry about her. Will use her again for sure.
Christy made everything so convenient and put Watson and I at ease! Great experience. Thanks, Christy!
Christy was absolutely amazing! She kept my husband and I updated throughout Roxie's entire stay. Roxie was sad to leave her and Bandit.
We are so happy with Dexter's stay. Christy responded to me within seconds of contacting her. Everything was so effortless from the meet & greet to the drop off/pick up. We will be keeping her as a favorite!!
Christy was a great sitter for my 1 y/o lab puppy! She was very responsive and provided updates all weekend.Her dog Bandit was also a gracious host. I returned home to a tired but well taken care of puppy. I will surely book her again if needed.
Easy to set up meet-n-greet. Flexible with drop off. Flexible with pick up.
Maverick had a great time with Christy! We had lots of update pics showing us he was doing well. Very flexible drop off and pick up which was helpful. Would definitely recommend Christy.
Christy was the perfect sitter for my nervous little ol' gal! She sent tons of pics and updates! I'll definitely book her again next time I find myself in Pittsburgh!!
Christy and Bandit were wonderful hosts to my dog Cooper while I was in Pittsburgh visiting a friend. She was super organized, responsive, and kind to Cooper. We enjoyed getting so many cute pictures, too. I would highly recommend Christy to anyone. Thanks for a great weekend!

Christy is the best! Lupo always comes back happy and exhausted from all the fun he has!!
Christy took great care of our dog, Toby, while we were out of state for a wedding. Lots of pictures, and he got on great with Bandit, the resident Beagle. We would definitely use her again for a future trip!
Christy took great care of our dog! She was flexible to our schedule and sent us updates on how our pup was doing while we were away. Christy lives right by a huge park and we could tell our dog had a wonderful time playing with her during our trip.

Christy was awesome again. Lupo came back home exhausted which means he had a great time.
Christy was great and dealt with us constantly texting and checking in on Lupo. She sent us some great pictures of him. I would recommend her anytime!
Christy was great! Flexible with drop off and pick up times and super friendly! Norah had such a great time and was so tuckered out from playing so much she slept through most of the following day! Definitely recommend.
Christy provided my 13 year old Labrador with a safe and loving environment. Excellent communication before and during the visit. I know my dog was comfortable staying with Christy when I came to pick her up and she didn't want to leave!
Christy was great with my pup! She was easy to work with and easily accommodated our pick up and drop off times. We were kept informed of Ella throughout her stay and received lots of pictures!! Ella can't wait for her next sleepover with Christy:)
We were lucky to have Christy take care of our puppy. We were coming from DC and there we're traffic delays but she was very flexible to our needs. She was sweet and welcoming, and our puppy had playmates to spend the day with. Her place was close to the city and very easy to get to. Our pup and we all had a great time!

Christy and her boyfriend did a great job watching and taking care of Chibi. She received lots of attention and walks. Would use her again and would recommend her to other people looking for a host.
We were recently in a position to find a dogsitter at the very last minute when previous plans fell through. Christy was GREAT! She was very nice and extremely accommodating considering our late notice. Bandit and Eliot got along well and Christy stayed in touch with us over the weekend. We will certainly utilize her petsitting services in the future and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her (and Bandit's!) hospitality.

We left our puppy Bailey with Christy and Bandit for a wedding weekend and we couldn't of been more pleased with her stay. Bandit was very welcoming of Bailey and Christy was very accomidating to our crazy schedule coming in from out of town. We would definitely have Bailey back there again.

Thanks
