About Christine

I have been fostering dogs for shelters and rescues since 2008. i have been with dogvacay since June 2014. My daughter is a vet tech and works ten minutes from home. She is going to school locally to become certifie and will graduate at the end of 2015. We have five dogs of our own and they have helped raise a lot of fosters over the years. We have experienced some great transformations. My property is just under an acre and there are two large fenced yards. This allows me to keep dogs separate if I need to. If your dogs enjoy walks then we will provide a minimum of three per day, weather permitting. We can administer any required medication whether its oral, topical or injection.

We offer a limited dog walking service depending on the times you need and proximity to our home. We charge $15 per walk for that service.

Great, great & great!
This was my first time using Dogvacay. Christine was great and I will definitely be booking with her again. My dog gets sad when we go away so I was afraid he was going to have a rough week. Christine sent me pictures of my pup with updates which I loved. He played with the other dogs and I think he was happy being in a home rather than a kennel. You won't be disappointed. Great experience with Christine!!!

Christine and her Daughter were awesome taking care of our Eng bulldog Fuzzy! When I met her I knew it was a perfect match. Christine is so caring and comes with a lot of experience and knowledge. Fuzzy is a special needs dog and had special health concerns and she was more that willing to deal with the challenge as she has taken care of prior special needs dogs. She follow Fuzzy's special diet and other instructions to a "T". She made outstanding accomodations for Fuzzy. She kept us posted via email on vacation with pics and messages. I felt so confident leaving him. She went above and beyond taking care of Fuzzy and kept in contact with his vet during this time due to his special needs. She made Fuzzy part of the family. This is the first time and only time I have felt so confident leaving my special Fuzzy with anyone. I would always worry how things were going with other sitters, but I didn't have worry with Christine. This is the first time I could relax when I left Fuzzy with her. I would not hesitate to use her again. She is the best find on DogVacay and an outstanding sitter. I can't say enough. You will not go wrong with Christine. She is a God send. :)

From the moment we met Christine we knew that Gizmo would be in good hands. We know that she can be stubborn at times and we wanted to make sure that whomever we chose to watch her would be able to handle her. Christine was more than capable. Gizmo was thrilled to see us after her weekend stay but we could tell she also felt at home at Christine's. We would not hesitate to leave her with Christine again.

We dropped off our dog with Christine for 2 nights. Christine was available for questions beforehand and made drop-off and pick-up easy. Our dog made some new friends with Christine's other dogs, and she came home happy. Christine is great with dogs. Highly recommended.

As always Swet Dee had a great time at Christine's! When I picked her up, Dee greeted me quickly then was happy to show me one of the doggie beds she lounges in! Christine was also very flexible with us picking Dee up late as unexpected traffic had us arriving a lot later than planned. Sweet Dee can't wait to visit again!

Christine is a wonderful dog sitter and I couldn't imagine sending my pup anywhere else! She keeps me updated on how my dog is doing throughout her stay and is very flexible and reliable. She has helped my pup adjust to being with other dogs and knows the right amount of exposure that she needs (and also knows which dogs she does well around). On our second booking with Christine, I could already see that Samara was adjusting to staying with her and was already much less anxious to be away from us. I look forward to using Christine whenever we need to be away from our girl!

Christine is a true dog lover and whisperer. My dog can be extremely trying at times and still Christine could connect with her enough to keep her and the other dogs safe and happy. Even with a behavioral mishap, she was gracious and forgiving of Maggie. Christine also always went out of her way to make sure Maggie was as comfortable as possible. Maggie has stayed with Christine several times and each time I've received updates and felt comfortable knowing that she was well cared for.
Christine was also very accommodating with drop off, pick up and duration of stay timing. We had to leave her several times in a couple of months to tend to my terminal in laws in Florida so we couldn't provide firm dates and Christine took it all in stride. She's an amazing dog owner, advocate, foster, and sitter!!!!

We cannot express how amazing Christine is! Our English mastiff Bruno can be very shy....he is right at home when he stays with Christine! He even has a little romance blooming with one of Christine's resident huskies. They are absolutely adorable together!!! Once again we were able to truly enjoy our vacation knowing that he was being extremely well cared for in a safe and loving environment!!

As always Sweet Dee had a wonderful time at Christine's! Sweet Dee gets plenty of love and attention from Christine, her daughter & the other dogs. We have total piece of mind when we leave our dog with Christine as she is so nurturing and has a true affinity for animals. Sweet Dee can't wait to come back! Thanks Dogvacay.com for finding us such a gem!

Christine took our 2 dogs on a moments notice. Both dogs were happy and well cared for when we picked them up. We certainly will use Christine again.
We were excited to find Christine on DogVacay. She took on our Loki who is a very spoiled 106 lb Doberman. Loki made many new friends at Christine's house. She has a few Fur Babies of her own, both big and small. She understands all of their needs and separate's who she has to. Her house is super clean and pet friendly and she has a great back yard. She contacted us several times during our vacation to update us with pictures and texts and answered our inquiries quickly. We definitely like Christine and highly recommend her. But more importantly, Loki loved Christine! I've already let my family and friends know who to contact if they need a sitter.

We could not have asked for better love and care for Stewie. Christine was wonderful and I would highly recommend to anyone!
I love Christine! She was SO good to my Daisy and kept me posted during the weekend with pics of what was going on. I think Daisy got comfortable there, especially with Christine, which made me happy. Christine did a GREAT job with her, and I hope she'll be up to watching her again in the future. Thanks Christine for taking such good care of Daisy!!!

Christine was an excellent host. Baxter was very comfortable and happy for his stay in her home. She is truly a friendly, caring and knowledgeable animal lover. It was a pleasure to find her here.
Christine was wonderful! We were away for 10 days and she took excellent care of our Gigi! She was in continuous contact with us, giving us updates and even sending pictures! We felt confident that Gigi was very well taken care of. Plus on a personal level, Christine was a pleasure to deal with!

Christine took excellent care of our dachshund for 10 days. She let her feel comfortable at her own pace and let her interact with other dogs. She really took the dog's comfort into consideration. She's such a dog person and is excellent at reading a dog's disposition and accommodating accordingly! We'll surely use this service again!

My girls had a great time, they joined right in with the house dogs and had a fun week. I got updates and pixs, everything was fantastic!!
Christine was wonderful at our Meet & Greet and I felt very confident leaving our dog with her. She was obviously very experienced with pups due to the fact that she has several of her own dogs and fosters! She was very flexible about drop-off and pick-up and our dog was obviously very well cared for when we picked her up at the end of our vacation! Highly recommend her service and will definitely be using again!

Honestly I am unable to convey in words how amazing this experience was for my dogs and I. This was the first time anyone other then my mother has watched the dogs for an extended (any amount) of time. This might sound a bit funny, but I feel truly blessed to have found Christine as my dogs are very very close to my heart. Cookie is diabetic and requires insulin injections twice a day and Lala is a very picky eater.

To not have had to worry while I was out of the country for my dogs wellbeing and health was incredible, one I never new possible.

Christine is so warm and her home is beautiful, the environment shes created for the dogs is fantastic, even better then they've (cookie & lala) got with me.

I feel like I sent them on luxurious vacation or camp.

Cookie and Lala used to eat boiled chicken that I used to cook and peal and mix and warm for them. Now they eat their dry food only, halleluja !

She gave them treats, love, care, attention and safety.

I must mention how Christine honestly saved us from a massive bind. So understanding, truly an amazing person and a deep animal lover.

I could go on and on, look no place els for your pets needs. Truly the best and only "home away from home".

Ps. Now I never have to say "no" to another vacation, getaway, work engagement, or celebration or cook chicken (jokes). My pups will be cared and loved!

- Thank you X infinity

Christine is an amazing dog lover! Her home is very clean and spotless and she has two seperate huge fenced in yards for her dogs. She texted me updates and pictures every day and when my puppy came down with the runs she made her chicken and rice to calm her belly. I was very happy with the care that Christine showed our puppy, Bella. Please note that Christine has 5 of her own dogs and she also fosters rescue dogs. When I dropped Bella off, she had a total of 7 or 8 dogs there, which turned out fine because Bella enjoyed playing with them, but if your dog doesn't like other dogs or is easily overwhelmed, this may not be the place for them. If your dog loves playing with other dogs, then this is the perfect home for them while your away!

We had such an amazing experience leaving our four legged family member in the care of Christine! We were worried how our shy pup would do staying with someone new....but were quickly comforted when we received pictures of how well he was doing! Christine and her daughter are absolutely fantastic! They are kind, patient, knowledgable caregivers. Our dog had a great time and enjoyed playtime with other dogs as well. we will absolutely be using their services again and are recommended them to anyone who would like to know their pups are being well cared for while they are away! We are so thankful that we could really enjoy our vacation!
