About Christine

ASK ABOUT OUR 2nd DOG DISCOUNT!

There are two of us - Christine and Tony - so your furbaby will get double the attention! Christine is a Lawyer with a flexible schedule and Tony is a Drexel Law Student in and out throughout the day. We own a good size house in South Philly with a small securely fenced in backyard which our pups adore. The legendary Passyunk Square Dog Park is also only a few blocks away. We'll make sure your pup gets lots of love and attention as well as some quality time at the dog park if they want. Having two dogs ourselves, we understand the cost involved. We offer reduced rates if you have more than one pup.

We have two small, friendly pups of our own, Jonas and Cody. Jonas is a 7 year old Chinese Crested Powder Puff who loves purrs like a cat for scratches and loves to wrestle with Cody :). Cody is a 4 year old Shih Tzu who loves treats and watching out the front window and excitedly barking at any pups that walk by. They both love meeting and playing with new doggie friends! Being doggie parents ourselves, we understand how hard it can be to leave your pup. We will email or text you updates and pictures of your pup if you would like so you can make sure they are safe and having a great time We also have doggie cameras to monitor the pups if we happen to step out.

She is a great host andcwonderful to my dog
Christine and her husband were super sweet and took great care of our pup! she sent pictures frequently and kept us updated on how she was.
My Wally got along really well with their two dogs and from the pictures sent it looks like he had a great time. I felt very comfortable after our meet n' greet and dropped Wally off for 5 days - I LOVED the great picture texts I received and could tell they really enjoyed hanging out with him.

Fantastic petsitters and will definitely be using them again!

Christine was amazing! We got multiple daily updates on our pups and couldn't have been happier with their stay. Clementine and Perry didn't want to leave!
Wonderful experience! Cody and Jonas (resident dogs) are super sweet...I'm not sure my girl wanted to leave! Felt great leaving her and would do it again in a heartbeat. I got plenty of updates and pictures too:)
Very happy with this reservation. Christine Antonio and their babies Coady and Jonas welcome Stash into their home and took great care of him and kept me in the loop with pictures of my pup. Happy Holidays
Couldn't thank Christine enough for taking good care of my dog Junior. My mind was at ease when she keep me posted with photos. When I was picking up my boy he seem very happy and enjoyed his stay with Christine. Thx again! =)
We'll continue to board Max at Christine's. It is evident he always has a great time and she treats him very well!
Christine went over and above sending me pictures and videos of Lionel. He was acting sad when I dropped him off and she texted me pictures 3 minutes later of him playing which made me feel so much better. He took to them immediately, which is unusual for him. He was tired from all the playing when I picked him up and he seemed to love them so much. I would definitely be a repeat customer.

We cannot thank Christine enough for taking such good care of our dog!
Nini had an emergency surgery a few days before we were scheduled to take her to Christine's place. We felt it would be too much to ask Christine to take care of her under such conditions and were ready to cancel our travel plans. So I sent Christine an email. She immediately got back and let me know that she was willing to take care of Nini whatever our decision was.
Nini stayed with them for 13 days, during which Christine and Antonio administered her medications and took such good care of her that by the time we came back, Nini completely recovered from the surgery and is now a happy and energetic little girl.
While we were away, Christine sent multiple photos daily so we could see how Nini was doing. Pictures of Nini cuddling with them made us feel she was getting a lot of love.
I'm sure Nini is looking forward to another vacay with them!

Thanks Christine and Antonio!

You always know it's a good sign when your dog doesn't want to leave from his host's house. I could tell my dog really liked Christine and I would definitely board him there again!
Christine and Antonio are amazing! I cannot say enough with how wonderful they made Vincenzo's first night away from home. He is a rescue and a little anxious in new environments but Christine & co made him feel right at home. I can tell he can't wait to come hang with his new friends Cody and Jonas again soon!

Awesome sitter. Fitz enjoyed himself and even seemed to open up to being around other dogs. Thanks Christine!
Thank you for treating Frodo like Family! Much appreciated :)
Fantastic stay for Frodo yet again! Thank you so much!
My dog had the best time at Christine's house playing with her other pups! She didn't really even want to leave. Cameron will be back for another stay for sure!!
Frodo had a fantastic weekend! I received Photos of him playing with Cody and Jonas at the park, with toys and going for dog walks. Not only did Frodo have a fun playtime but he was in a caring environment which is why he looked and felt at home :). Christine and Tony definitely understand dogs! Its definitely a great first experience on Dogvacay and I believe Frodo will be catching up with his new playmates sometime soon as well :) I also absolutely love the pictures! One of the best photo albums Frodo has. Thank you both!

We are really happy about Christine and Tony. They were wonderful hosts and our dog had a great time with them!
Nini stayed with them for three nights. They sent us many pictures throughout the day documenting all the activities so we felt that our dog was right with us!
We couldn't be happier!

We could not have had a better experience with Christine. She accommodated our very last minute reservation and did a wonderful job watching our pup. We also got multiple pictures every day and status updates. Our flight home was delayed so Christine even dropped our dog off at our house with last minute notice. Overall wonderful experience, fair price, and a job well done!

Reasonable price, nice place, very flexible, and friendly. Dog came back clean and happy.
This was the best experience we could hope for! Christine was in communication with us during our entire trip, sending pics and updates regularly. Our little Lex was in great company and showered with all the attention he deserves. Christine was extremely accommodating and attentive. I would recommend (and have already) her to any dog owner! So much better than boarding. Lex was at his home-away-from-home!!

Christine and Antonio have been my favorite pet sitters that I have used in Philly. They sent me tons of pictures, took my dog to the park, and Ali loved playing with their two dogs. I will definitely continue to have them take care of my dog and highly recommend them to others.

Christine and Antonio were wonderful hosts to my furbaby, Lane. He looked so happy when I dropped him off, I was worried he wouldn't want to come back with me when I returned.

They sent me wonderful pictures of Laney daily, and comforted him so nicely when it rained and the thunder frightened him. I would not hesitate for Christie and Antonio to watch Laney for me again, and I would certainly recommend them to anyone looking for a safe and fun stay for their dog.

Sincerely,

Margot

Christine and Antonio were awesome hosts of my girl, Piper. I got regular updates with pictures texted each day and I could tell that Piper was happy and well cared for. Their place is very dog friendly, and they are extremely attentive dog hosts. I appreciate how accommodating they were around drop-off and pick-up times. Couldn't have asked for more. Yay!

Christine & Tony were so great with our little dog Zoe! Zoe is a pretty shy dog that requires a lot of patience and we were very pleased with their interactions with her. We will use them again very soon!
We were visiting my sister-in-law in Philly for Easter and unfortunately her building doesn't allow pets. Our dog Oreo is 5 months old and we were nervous about boarding him in a kennel. We found Christine G on DogVacay and she is amazing! Christine's 2 dogs are cute, playful and well behaved. Oreo had a blast playing with them and also attended a birthday party for Christine's dog Jonas. Oreo was so happy I was worried he didn't want to come back home with us. Overall, Christine is awesome and your pet will be very safe and happy in her home. Thank You Christine and DogVacay!!!!
