About Christina

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am retired and have the time and pleasure to devote to my fur babies, along with yours! My yard is fenced in for running, exploring, and play!

My animals are not crated and free to hang out anywhere in the house, though you can usually find them under my feet! Yours would be welcome to do the same unless they are used to/need to be in their own little pen at certain times.

I have decided to devote my time to smaller dogs as my two "lap" dogs are not very tolerant of bigger breeds due to their rougher playing tendencies. (my newest senior is almost totally blind). While breed is not an issue, size is. I would prefer dogs under 40 lbs.

Christina was fantastic with our dog Tucker! She has a very dog friendly house and you can tell she is a dog lover. We will be using her again in the future.
We really appreciated that Christina let us and our pet meet her and her pets at her home before our trip. She also sent us a cute photo of our girl lounging with her on the couch , we knew all was well. Christina took good care of our Lil dog and we would highly recommend her to other pet lovers.
We have had her dog vaycay before, very pleased REPEAT customers. She does an awesome job!!!
always a great stay with Christina!
We had a great experience. Definitely will bring the boys back for another stay.
Christina was wonderful! She sent us pictures of our dog while we were gone, and was understanding when we got stuck in traffic and were later than we had planned.
I was very pleased with the entire experience. My dog seemed to settle in quite easily and the daily pictures of how she was doing were a big stress reliever. I would certainly book with Christina again.
Christina was great! Good environment and felt very confident in leaving Logan for the night. Will definitely use her again!
We needed to add to our existing reservation. everything went well with great communication with Christina. Missys home away from home.
Christina is a blessing. Knowing our dog is in wonderful hands and safe secure surroundings makes our getaways much more enjoyable.
Being new to the area we were very apprehensive about who to trust with our 3 dogs. We found Christine through Dog Vacay and couldn't have been luckier. She committed to coming to our house each day so that our dogs could stay in their own comfortable environment. Christine sent us daily updates and photos. It made us feel connected to our pets and helped with our anxiety about leaving them in a new environment. We will not hesitate to use Christine again, our dogs love her.
Had a last minute change in schedule and Christina was able to accommodate. Cooper enjoyed his stay.
It was very easy leaving Star our 10 yr old doggy. Christina kept us updated through out the trip. Star became very comfortable and territorial by the time we picked her up. She seemed very happy. I would definitely leave star which Christina again! And you should too!!
Christina is a caring and considerate pet sitter. She worked with us to make the drop off and pick up convenient for all concerned. She made sure that all feeding and behavior directions were understood and we could tell that she had followed through by the way our pets behaved upon returning home.
We are very glad that we have found Christina and intend to use her services again.
Max and Sparky have stayed two times (a week each time) with Christina and we have been very pleased. They obviously have a good time and are well cared for as they are happy when we collect them. I would highly recommend Christina for
your animal "kids".

Christina was wonderful with our dog and very accommodating for us. We are new in town and this stay with Christina was our first but we immediately knew our Mirabelle was in good hands and would be well cared for.
Cooper had a great stay with Christina! I definitely recommend her services and I am happy to have found her. She is such a nice person and a genuine dog lover!
This was the doggies first time having a person other than myself care for them. They had a wonderful time right from the beginning and gave me no indication of being ill at ease. After two weeks I brought them home and they fine. no signs of trauma from being apart from their family. Perfect. I was a bit apprehensive initially but will now feel much better if I ever have to leave them again. Chris was great and I am much appreciative of her service.
Christina took great care of both my dogs, we came back home to healthy and happy kids! This was our first time using Christina she kept us up to date with pictures, we smiled every time we got one. Thanks!
First time using Dog Vacay. Christine was great. Casey & Sammie enjoyed their stay.
Christina was awesome, very pleased with the care of our Daisy, will highly recommend her and Dogvac!!
This was our pups first vacay ,so naturally we were a little nervous about leaving him. Christina was awesome and upon our meet and greet she immediately put us at ease about the whole process. Our first experience with dogvacay was a good one and we would definitely return for a visit with Christina again.
Christina is our go-to host; Oreo has stayed with her a handful of times already and he loves it. This time, we decided on a spontaneous road trip on a whim, and Christina was so accommodating and flexible to the last-minute request. Thanks as usual!
This was little Missy's second stay with Christina and she stayed for over a week. Christina is so down to earth and calm with the dogs that even Missy who's afraid of everything relaxed and loved it (I know because we got pictures and updates texted!).
We'll definitely be back!
Awesome visit. Ike had a great time with Christina and her pups.
Starky loves going to see Christina.
Once again Christina was awesome and perfect with communicating with us daily. We had peace of mind and always feel like Milo is taken care of and loved. Thank you Christina!
Starky had a great time with Christina! I think Christina likes Starky too. It's a good fit. Thanks Christine.
I hope Christina and her fury resident friends enjoyed the time with Starky that I believe he enjoyed with her and them. She videoed tape the fun playful dog wrestling between Starky and Christina's residence friends during his stay.
We look forward having Starky share more time with Christina. So we have booked longer time early next week to spend with her.
Thank you Christina!
We found Christina H. at the last minute for a trip to Utah for a family wedding. She met with us at the last minute to meet our dogs Cinnamon and Luigi. They took to her right away. I never worried about the "fur kids" while we were out. I know they were in great hands with Christina! I look forward to using her for our future vacations. It felt like we dropped them off with a family member. She took great care of them!! Thank you!
As soon as I pull up in front of Christina's house, my dogs can't wait to get to her front door. She takes amazing care of my 2 little guys and I always have peace of mind leaving them with her.
Christina is awesome! We felt very comfortable and had piece of mind when we left our baby with Christina. Very nice home and back yard for the pups. Milo misses you Christina!
We've had our Oreo stay with Christina a few times now, and have had great experiences every time. She's flexible, reliable, and our pup has a great time at her 'resort'!
Hulk was very well taken care of. He was happy and playful when we picked him up.
I met Christina last year when I hosted her two fur babies while she was out of town. they were adorable and Christina was kind and nice! So it was a no-brainer when we needed a host to watch our little guy for TWO WEEKS! We got tons of picture updates (it looked like he was in a pet resort, and we were slightly jealous) and never had to worry about whether he was happy and safe. Christina is a great choice!
This was Missy's first time away from us & I'm not sure who was more nervous, us or her! Christina knew we were concerned since Missy isn't used to be around any other dogs or people. She kept us updated with texts while we were gone (and even a picture). Her beautiful house & yard is set up nicely for the dogs to play & have space.

The personalized attention Missy received was very unexpected & very much appreciated.

She was also very flexible with the picking up & dropping off times. I would definitely recommend anyone who needs their dog to be watched to use Christina.
4 paws up! Ike had a great first visit with Christina. She took care to let us keep us informed with text and photo updates. We will definitely plan to use Christina for future trips out of town.
Christina made Max's stay very enjoyable for him and stress-free for us. Loved the text updates.
Christina made Milo feel right at home. I was happy to see my dog having good time. I would definitely like to bring Milo back to see his new friends.
Christina took wonderful care of our dog, Dozer. He was so relaxed when we came to get him so we know he was not stressed about being away from us.
We are so thankful for having found Christina to care for our fur babies. I have never been more comfortable leaving them behind, she truly loves them and treats them like her own. My girls are quite spoiled at home, and they are also spoiled by Christina. I love the pictures emailed to me while in her care and her quick response when contacted. Thank you so much Christina, every dog family needs someone like you in their lives ❤️
Excellent as always - my dogs love going to Christina's.
This was Hulk's second visit to Christina and he was excited to see her again. His stay was fun and comfortable. Christina kept him busy and loved. See you next time Christina. Thank you!
As with previous stays, my dogs were well cared for. Christina kept my babies for a week at Christmas and sent pictures and updates to me. I really appreciate the care Christina gives my babies and the freedom we are able to enjoy because of it. My dogs are very spoiled by us and I can tell they are by Christina as well. I'm so happy I've found Dog Vacay and Christina
My dogs (especially Zoey) were so excited when we pulled up in front of Christina's place again. She couldn't open her door fast enough. And Belle slept with all of them this time, even fighting for the best spot along Christina's side. This reassures me immensely and makes it so much easier to leave my fur babies behind. Christina is such a good person, I would highly recommend her to anyone needing peace of mind while their dogs are on vacation.
She took very good care of my Hulk. Unfortunately, he had an emergency the first day he arrived (nothing related to his visit) and I was already 2,000 miles away. She took Hulk to the Vet and gave him his medication as needed. She treated Hulk as her very own. Christina sent pictures of Hulk daily and kept me posted at least twice a day. Made my trip and vacation more relaxing. Thank you Christina. :-)
I was extremely pleased with Christina's care of my dogs. My younger dog Zoey was so excited to go back there after our meet and greet, she loves to play with the other dogs and so was totally in her element. My older dog Belle is not very social and as usual, she held back but I was happy that she didn't wimper or cry when we left her, which tells me she's ok too. When I arrived to pick them up, they were all outside in the enclosed back yard enjoying the sunshine. Christina said Zoey slept on the bed with her and her dogs but Belle wouldn't, I'm sure Belle will sleep there too once she gets to know Christina better. It's a relief for me to know I have a place for my dogs to go when we are wanting to do something that can't include them. Christina obviously adores dogs, she has two of her own, one is a rescue which further demonstrates her love for them. I would certainly recommend Christina and will definitely be taking my babies there again.
We would recommend Christina to anyone who is looking for someone who will treat their furry child as well as you do! She was very flexible with our time and open to whatever worked best for our out of town stay. She is kind and gentle and took our puppy for lots of walks. She has a beautiful open sunny home and a great park right next door for exercise. We will definitely leave Toby with her again in the future.
Thanks Christina. The dogs were well taken care of.
Christina was very welcoming to our Maggie, she treated her immediately like she was her own dog.
We have heard from other pet sitters that Maggie can whimper a little after we leave, but she didn't do that this time. Maggie loved her playmates, so I think her getaway was just as nice as ours :-)
