About Christina

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have 2 years experience as a veterinary receptionist. I was the founder and Executive Director of my own 501c3 non-profit dog rescue for 4 years. I have cared for many different clients; including daily walks, visits, and overnights . My day starts with playtime with my first regular client then my second regular client hikes with me 5 days a week. I occasionally have kitty clients and I enjoy them as well. I have loved animals as long as I can remember. I am the owner of 3 large dogs and 1 small. My oldest dog is 14 and I've had her her entire life.
I understand that living in the country can mean long commutes to work, so getting home for a lunchtime walk or potty break is typically out of the question for most. I also know how frustrating traffic can be sometimes. I'm more than happy to take last minute bookings, I do prefer to meet you and your pet(s) first. If you feel that every now and then you may need some extra time getting home, please set up a meet and greet so that I can be of service for those last minute needs :)
Unfortunately, I cannot watch animals in my home but I'm willing to come to yours for a visit, a walk, a hike, an overnight or just to hang out while you are gone.

Christina really knows how to take care of all dog behaviors!! She was extremely patient with our rescue pup and pulled out all the tricks to get him to trust her :) Would love to have her back with our pups many times over
Christina did a great job with our dogs. We have two old dogs who have medical issues that can require special instructions, but that didn't faze her at all. She was very communicative and even sent a couple of adorable pictures. We felt very relaxed leaving them with her and are definitely using Christina for her services again!

Christina is nothing short of awesome! This was our first experience using Dogvacay and we were looking for a dog/house sitter last minute when our regularly scheduled sitter was unable to accommodate the full week we were on vacation. During our first meeting, it was apparent how much Christina adores furry children and her professionalism and easy going nature made us feel immediately at ease. She asked questions that we did not even think of and she took a genuine interest in the happiness and safety of our pup.

During the time we were away, I received daily updates via the Dogvacay site and text messages. It made us feel better knowing that our dog was in good hands and was getting the love and attention he gets when we are at home. The transition was so easy for us and our boy. She took him for regular walks and let us know when she would not be at home. When we returned, she made us a collage of pictures from the week with an update on the day's events. We would recommend Christina to anyone looking for a reliable and friendly dog walker/sitter. We will definitely be keeping her in mind in the near future!

Christina did great with our two dogs. Both have timid personalities towards new comers but she did wonderful with them. They got a chance to play and potty while I was at work. We just got a 3mo old collie mix puppy the previous weekend so everything was new. She took the time to wait until the puppy and my older Sheltie felt comfortable and that really means a lot to me. She was kind enough to take my last minute request and work with me on a time to do the meet n greet. I hope you give great consideration on choosing Christina. I will recommend her to my family and friends.
