About Christine

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Chrissy Welm and I have had dogs all my life, 49 years, and have owned many different breeds over the years. I absolutely adore all types of dogs.

I own a duplex home which I have just finished renovating one half for my dog sitting business. Everything is brand new, new paint, new vinyl floors, new doors new window treatments and so on. The two bedrooms are furnished with brand new dog beds in an array of sizes. I have lots of new toys for the dogs to play with, I have a large back yard and trails in the woods where I walk the dogs. I have just added on a ramp to the back deck of the house for the senior dogs that come to stay. Next spring I am having a fence put up in the back yard for the dogs.

I clean the house and yard daily so you can rest assured your pet will be in a healthy, safe environment. Your dog will never be left alone, I will be here 90% of the time but on those occasions when I have something I have to do my son or my best friend will be here. I will make sure all the dogs get lots of play time and tons of attention and affection. I want you to know that I will love your dog and treat him or her as if they were my own. I want you to be worry free while you are away.

I have two dogs of my own which stay in the other half of the duplex where I live along with my 24 yr. old son. Depending on how many dogs I am watching will determine if my dogs will come over to visit and play with your dog.

Lets set up a meet and greet with you and your dog(s) at my home and see where it goes from there.

FYI:
Your dog must be friendly with people and other dogs.
Pet needs to be licensed and have up to date rabies vaccine.
No Fleas Please! Must use some sort of flea/tick prevention.
I will only take puppies if they are housebroken and have up to date vaccines.

1st class. Chrissy was very professional while showing compassion & concern for both Brandi & me. Communication was excellent and timely. Brandi will be visiting on my upcoming business trip while my concerns about her care will be gone. Thanks
Couldn't believe how quickly Christine got back to me after I asked if she could watch my puppy later that same day!! She was so thoughtful about what my dog might need; moving the other dogs out of the main living space before my dog arrived, finding the right mix of dog personalities to form appropriate play groups. My puppy came home happy and tired after playing with some nice dogs and humans.

Great experience! Christine was so warm and friendly, and her home is set up perfectly for dogs. She lives on one side of the duplex, and the other is just for dogs. Our Westie had the run of the apartment, with toys and dog beds and a futon so it was very similar to what she is used to at home. Christine sent us pictures and texts every day, and was great about keeping us updated. What a fantastic alternative to being crated in a kennel! We highly recommend Christine.
