About Christina

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a stay at home mom, just looking to make a little extra cash. I grew up on a farm, and have been around dogs and other animals my whole life. I have an Australian Shepard/Husky mix dog, who even though she is 7, has the energy of a puppy. She is Obsessed with balls and sticks, and loves to play with other dogs, we recently added a mini Australian Shepherd puppy to the family, and she is just as goofy and sweet as the other. I have two kids, and they also love dogs, big or little. There are two cats that come and go, but if there is a dog they don't care for, they will hide. There are also two guinea pigs, but they are in a closed off space.

My home is low key, and very friendly and inviting. I am also open to coming to your home as well.

I'm giving 3 stars because overall my dogs are alive, they were fed, and they had fun. Unfortunately both my dogs came home with fleas. Also one of my dogs came home with a red rash on his chest which opened up into two quarter sized sores. It's unlikely that I will use this sitter again.

Christina very obviously knows dogs and their behavior quite well. She ably took on my softie Golden Retriever & my daughter & son-in-law's rescue ADD mix; she understood some of the rescue's insecure behavior more than many would have. My Golden enjoyed himself immensely, getting into the wet & muddy yard over a rainy weekend! Christina also sent a quick text with a pix on the first night of care---nice!

Some people leave emotion based reviews, I just want to say we are unpleased for a number of reasons which I will list below.

1. The page for this sitter states "Watches up to 4 dogs/night" However when we dropped our dog off she was the 7th dog. I do understand the sitter had two of her own but that would still only be 6 dogs.

2. We did not receive a single communication in the almost 48 hours our dog was at the sitter. people said "no news is good news" but not a single update on our 5 month old puppy when the sitter knew this was our first boarding experience and there as 6 other dogs 4 of which are large dogs compared to our mini aussie.

3. The most upsetting of them all is we we came to pick our dog up her dog bed in her crate was SOAKED in urine and I am 90% sure it is not even our dogs because our dog has not urinated in her crate since July. This bed more urine then dog bed now, we have no choice but to throw it away.

For the price and experience we would not choose to board with this sitter again.

Christina took wonderful care of my pup. She communicated with me frequently & even sent pictures of Gitta's adventures at Christina's home.
Never having to board the dogs, I couldn't have made a better selection. Christina was the first person I found on this website, and after visiting her with the dogs, I knew I didn't have to look any further. She was very accommodating, and considerate of our older dogs needs, and with the others there, they all seemed to be very comfortable. I will ask her again to watch our pets when need be without hesitation. This roller derby queen gave our dogs a great "Jam" session!

Christina was wonderful with Hank! She sent picture updates and let us know how he was doing. We would definitely ask her again! =)
Great as usual!
Christina was very kind and patient with our pup Marley. She was friendly and accommodating and sent great photos, keeping us informed as to how Marley was doing. It was clear to us that Marley had a great time with Christina. Excellent job! He had fun with other guest dogs and with her kids.

Christina was great to work with! My schedule was a bit challenging this week and she was easy to communicate with and adapted to different pick up and drop off times which was very very helpful for me. my pup Dalia absolutely loved going there during the day!

My Shiba Inu mix felt right at home with Christina and her own two sweet dogs as soon as we dropped him off for his 6 night stay. Christina kept us updated with both messages and pictures of our happy pup enjoying his own vacation at her home. Christina herself is very personable and sweet. I definitely will try to reserve with her in the future should the occasion arrive.

Christina was very nice along with her two dogs! She took very good care of our dogs when we where away. Will definitely continue to go to here when she is available.
Christina was an amazing sitter for our French Bulldog. Winston loved his vacation with her family. We received pictures and text messages regularly and could tell he was very happy while we were away. I will be using her any time we need a sitter.
Christina took great care of my pup, was very responsive, and was very flexible in terms of pickup and drop off times. I will be using her services again!
Christina was so flexible with our flight schedule! She's always so kind and works with us. Our Bailee is always exhausted when we pick her up.
This was our first time using this site and I'm so thankful I found Christina first. Our puppy is an 8 month Boston Terrier and I felt was more than taken care of ... she became part of Christina's family. She was able to hang with other dogs as well as her family while we were away. She gave us piece of mind while we were thousands of miles away by texting pictures to top it all off.

Thank you again!
Bubbles will be back soon.

Lucy (the dog) and I had a very nice "meet and greet" on the 13th and with no advance, was able to accept her on Saturday, the 16th. Lucy, who is an aussie mix got along very well with Christina's two aussies and two children. I plan on using Christina in the future. A definite plus is that she is only a mile or so from the Tacoma mall and/or the freeway

This was our first time sitting with Christina and we had a great experience, she kept us up to date and was flexible as our travel plans changed. We'll definitely work with Christina again.
I am so grateful for Christina and her family. We had a family emergency causing us to book last minute. She was so supportive and sweet; our Bailee didn't have to suffer with us. Thank you Christina!!
Christina has been such a great puppy sitter! My dog loves going to her house and playing with her adorable 2 dogs. I'm so happy I found her! She's been very accommodating. I would definitely recommend her!
the best experience ever with a boarding solution. Christina sent pictures daily which kept us in touch. The dog was happy to see us but not crazy like she is when we would pick her up from boarding. Yard, kids, toys and all the good things our Regan loves.
Thanks to her and her family.

Christina took great care of my maltese-poodle. He was happy & healthy when I picked him up.
Worked out great. Christina took my dog in for a couple nights with short notice. Her two dogs tolerated mine well, despite his "little dog" attitude. He must have had a good time, it usually takes him longer to forgive me for leaving him behind.
Maya's stay overnight with Christina was great! It was nice to meet her before Maya's stay to make sure Maya was compatible. Christina is easy to talk to and it is obvious she loves dogs. We were very pleased with the entire experience! We won't hesitate to call on her again as needed! Thank you!
