About Christine

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
This is a FAMILY run business! So it's not just one person who watches your dog but 4 people (My mom, dad, brother and me). :) 4 times the better right?

I have loved dogs ever since I can remember. My first dog was when I was 8 years old, It was in my first year of high school when I had a dog for a long period of time. I trained him since he was a puppy. Never took him to school yet he could do all the commands perfectly: sit, wait, shake, eat, and roll over

About Us.
My dad and I work evenings, my mom works mornings until early afternoon and my brother is 14 of this year and goes to middle school. This means that your dog(s) may be at home alone is 2-3 hours some days. MAKE SURE you are okay with this before boarding with me. I can't provide 24/7 supervision like before(I used to be able to).
We will try to make sure to keep your dog(s) clean but will make sure that they are fed, have fresh water, go out to do their business and are comfortable at our house. My mom will go out of her way and sleep on the sofa with all the dogs in the living room. Oh yeah, your dogs are allowed in furniture!

My house is best for rather small dogs such as puppies or dogs under 25lbs because we have a rather small house. We enjoy picking them up, cuddling with them and putting them on our laps. My house also has a very large backyard where dogs enjoy running and playing chase.

Your dog(s) will enjoy our cool wooden floors, access to sofas to sleep on and our extremely wide and spacious backyard with fresh air... OH and not to mention love from all of us! :)

Christine and family are awesome. You won't be disappointed and your dog will be happy in their care.
Christine and her family were so kind and accommodating. Christine herself was so attentive and loving with my dog. I had no difficulty at all trusting and feeling comfortable with leaving my dog with her. Her home has a large and fenced/secure yard for your dog to roam and Christine's family also participates with caring for your pet. I'd definitely will use her again in the future!

We need someone looks my dog Candy for 7 days when we are out of town for vacation. Christine has great reviews so we made reservation after Thanksgiving. I am so glad that I did that instead of sending my Candy to kennel. The whole families are really nice. I feel that Candy had a good time with them. They have big back yard that is great for dog to play around. I will definitely to let her taking care of my dog when I need it next time. Thanks Christine!

Our dog Joy always has a wonderful time at Christine's house. She loves the socialization with other dogs and the attention from the family. Joy is very comfortable there and Christine seems to always be available for a 'vacay'.
Christine is very accommodating and timely with communication. Her family, home, and yard are very dog friendly and our 5-month old puppy did well there for a day. We are sending her back for more playtime with other dogs!
I needed someone to look after my Kira at the last minute for 6 days and Christine accepted my request. Didn't even have time for the meet and greet. Kira adapted to their home nicely and will use Christine again.
We have used Christine for two times and both our dogs love her and her family. She is amazing with our fur babies.
Christine and her family have been such great hosts for my pup, Ross! I was in a time crunch with finding someone to care for Ross ever since our previous host cancelled on me. Christine got back to me within a few hours and answered all the questions I had about their home. We set up a Meet-N-Greet and Ross instantly felt welcome! During his stay, she messaged me updates on Ross and sent me a video of him with the other dogs. I will definitely be working with Christine and her family again in the future.

Christine and her family were great! Kuma's first experience away from home and it was very positive. Christine kept in touch about Kuma and let us visit him mid-stay. Thank you!
Thanks Christine! Our dogs had a great time while in your care. They will be back again.
Christine (and her family) will give your dog lots of attention! Her father took my dog with him to church to get some love outside of the house.
I could tell that Christine was genuinely excited to see my dog. She is a great communicator and is very accepting on directions specific to my dog. The location is ideal for drop off and/or pick up near my work. Lemy looked happy when we picked her up. Will be booking again!

Christine was amazing! Flexible with pickup and drop off times. Wonderful home with big back yard. Thank you so much for taking her on a short notice and even giving me updates on how she was doing!!
Christine was amazing with my dog Charlie! Charlie is old, 15 years old. I'm very cautious as to who I trust him with, and I'm so glad we have found Christine. She loves the and takes care of the dogs as if they are her own.
I highly recommend her! In fact I already have been to my friends :)

Maggie had a great time at Christine's. Huge, fully fenced back yard for lots of running and playing. House is super dog friendly, too. Maggie was a super happy, tired dog when we picked her up ... so we all enjoyed our "vacay" time.
Christine and her family watched my two dogs for 5 days. She was very accommodating and prompt to respond to my requests. She has a large fenced yard and allows the pets free range. I felt comfortable leaving my dogs with her and would do it again.

This was the first time in letting a complete stranger watch our fur babies. In the meet and greet both our dogs has their tails wagging and scouting out the home. They both had no problem with Christine. Coming back in a few day to drop them off for a long weekend, again both dogs had their tails wagging to get in her home. At this time in seeing this, we both knew our babies would be alright!! I would highly recommend this home for yours too!!!

Our puppy loved her stay with Christine! Chloe immediately made herself at home when we arrived at Christine's for the meet and greet. Christine provided routine updates and pictures of Chloe while we were away on the trip. She was also very patient with Chloe and was understanding of certain submissive peeing problems that Chloe had. We would definitely recommend Christine to our friends!

Rylee, our 9-month mini Aussie, stayed at Christine's place for 5 days. She returned as happy dog which I could tell she had good time during the stay. We received picture and update while we were away from home. High recommended, and definitely would like Christine to take care of Rylee again next time.

Christine is awesome. She is calm and provides good care for our dog.
Christine was very punctual for pre-review, drop off and pick up. My two Miniatures were very happy after a two week stay with her. Clean house and back yard. Thanks.
Misty has stayed with Christine many times. We will certainly book with her again.
I can tell my dog absolutely love the stay at Christine's place. Christine and her family love Simba so much, and were pretty flexible even when I picked Simba late. I will definitely refer Christine to you if you want board your pet.
Christine is very nice. Cookie has a great time with her and has all attentions that my little Cookie needs. Cookie will be back to see Christine shortly.
max always is well cared for when i have to leave. i totally trust christine.
Now that I have used Christine twice, I feel I can give a fair review. My dogs Dobo, Sox, and Keiko LOVE Christine!!! They actually get depressed when they leave her house. My wife and I are very picky who watches our dogs, and finally found someone who is very responsible and trustworthy. Her house met all our requirements, clean, plenty of space in the backyard, and fully fenced. When were on a long trip, she gave us an update on the dogs which made us feel at ease. She even sent a picture of Dobo doing funny things around her house. I know how difficult it is to leave your little guys with a stranger for the first time, but they will be in good hands with Christine. I highly recommend her for day or over nights stays.

christine is a dog's best friend. couldn't be more satisfied. cj
Austin absolutely loves his time spent with Christine and her family. He always has to come home and sleep off all the fun, just like his mommy has to after a vacation.
Christine is awesome and genuinely cares for all dogs. Great yard too. Highly recommend.
Christine was kind and caring with our senior dog. She kept us updated with pictures. We are so glad we found her!
Our two pups had a wonderful stay at Christine's! They loved her big back yard and came home happy. It's not so easy finding a reliable and friendly dog sitter so we really enjoyed finding and having Christine and her family watch our dogs for the day. Her communication was also very efficient and flexible. Would definitely use her again!

Austin loves spending time with Christine and her family. He has so much fun being spoiled if he is the only dog, but more important he enjoys all of the friends he gets to play with.
Christine was great. She sent me regular text messages updating me on how Mishka was doing, allowing me to enjoy my trip without having to worry about him.
Christine is wonderful. I recommend her to other dog owners with precious pets.
Christine and her family are wonderful. Austin always enjoys his stay.
Christine was extremely attentive and truly enjoyed taking care of Dodger. It was clear that Dodger had a great time, especially when I went to pick him up - he was excited to see me but kept running back to Christine!
Austin loves spending time with Christine and her family. He has so much fun playing with the other pups that are visiting. Great time and great host!!!
Christine and her family took great care of my little ones, i wasn't sure how my dogs would be so we did meet and greets a couple of times. My dogs had a great time while i was gone i would definitely use Christine again.
Austin had a great vacay with Christine and her family. He got to play with other friends and had so much fun. He's home sleeping it off, which is how I feel after vacation.
Christine was great with Austin and he had so much fun he was pooped when he got home. Great experience.
Christine was the perfect petsitter to my little Kiwi while I was away at a wedding. Her response rate was very fast and she was very friendly and professional all throughout. Kiwi had a great stay and I felt safe leaving her in the hands of Christine. I highly recommend Christine and I will request her services again next time I am out of town.

Christine was a great host for my 6-yr-old dog. She took great care of my dog and I could tell he was happy while he was there.

Christine was also very accommodating - she took in my dog with a very short notice, which was really helpful to us during a family emergency. Christine was very flexible while I had to extend my dog's stay with her while I was overseas. This was our first time leaving our dog with a complete stranger outside of our home so we were a little nervous in the beginning. However, Christine sent pictures of our dog during his stay so we could see he was having a good time. Thank you Christine for being a great host!

Christine and her family where and are lovely people! I hope to see her again. We dropped our sweet doggie off, and she needed some medicine and Christine was totally comfortable giving her the meds after I showed and explained how to give it easily. She talked to me and asked many questions to make sure Izzy would be comfortable and safe. Everything went amazing, and we ended up picking up our doggie a few hours earlier and she was very flexible with this and I just am thankful for her and her family caring for our doggie...thanks a million...

Christine was great! She has a nice backyard so I felt really comfortable that my dog would have a good time in there. She was taking care of another dog and she took the time to know if they would get along. I will definitely book with her again.
Christine was really great to work with and was very prompt in responding to my reservation request, setting up a meet-and-greet, and responding to my texts during the time my dog was staying with her. She was very enthusiastic about taking care of him, making sure that all of his needs were fulfilled, as well as making sure I felt comfortable with everything. I was nervous to leave my dog with her for a week's time, but I was put at ease by her persistent care and flexibility with my needs. I would recommend her to anyone that has never had their dog in a day care service, as well as anyone returning to this service or another, as Christine will go above and beyond and exceed your expectations for your dog's needs.

Christine was sooo accommodating and very honest to make sure that your dog would be comfortable. She let us know that she had another dog overlap and wanted to see first and willing to do what is right. Communication was very prompt and shared updates along with extra support. I am glad I found a dog sitter I can feel comfortable and that my dog would have lots of fun. Would definitely use christine again. Thanks!

Christine took my reservation last minute and I was happy to see that she had a nice house with a large yard. I can tell she really loves dogs and knew that my dog would be well taken care of. She really took the time during our meet and greet to make sure my dog would be at ease in the space. I would definitely book with her again!

We left our dog Charlie with Christine and her family for 12 nights and they were wonderful. They asked a lot of questions about his needs and I could tell right away that they had his best interest in mind. Charlie had his great, happy personality when we picked him up and he transitioned home well. The house was very clean and there was a great backyard for Charlie to run. We will definitely request Christine again next time we go away. Thank you to Christine and your family!

Christine was great! We set up a meet and greet to make sure Humbert would get along with the other dog she was boarding, and I could tell immediately when I met her that she really loves dogs and would take good care of my baby. She was very accommodating and flexible with drop-off and pick-up times, and Humbert must have had the time of his life because he did not want to leave when I picked him up... he wanted to keep playing! I will definitely use Christine again in the future. Thanks again, Christine!

Christine did a fine job with my King Charles Cavalier, Rosebud. She made sure I saw their huge fenced yard and asked pertinent questions.Christine only takes one dog at a time(unless there are 2 in a family) which was very important to me as my dog can be very shy around big dogs and is easily intimidated.
Christine particularly likes "lap" dogs, which mine isn't tiny, but Rosebud loves to cuddle and be with you on the couch, and Christine and her family accommodated very well. I have no reservations recommending Christine to fellow small dog owners.
Thanks a Bunch Christine!

Christine treated Bella so well and we felt great knowing Bella was getting lots of love and affection!
Christine was amazing. Very accommodating. She took both of our dogs last minute, because we had a family emergency. You can instantly tell she loves dogs. Christine and her family took care of our dogs as if they were hers. Very caring, even kept us posted during our trip. We will use Christine again as needed and will refer or friends as well.

Christine and her family are just amazing people with good hearts. My dog loves them and I always know that she is going to be just fine. Thanks Christine. Tina.
Tracker stayed with Christine from Oct 3-5. He is a 14 yr old Beagle with special needs: he has anxiety associated with Cushings disease, the need to urinate every 3-4 hours, arthritis, etc.
When I picked him up on the 5th, he looked relaxed, HAPPY, healthy and seemed very comfortable with Christine and her family. In the past when I have boarded him at the vets or a pet resort, he has come home exhausted, ill, limping or all three!
Christine reported, "Tracker was just a sweetheart. We enjoyed his company a lot. He was so quiet, well behaved and SO CUTE!" Apparently, he slept in their living room so Christine's mother kept him company by sleeping on the couch. I call that going above and beyond to ensure their house guest felt safe and comfortable in a new environment.
Based on his condition and her review, I would rate this experience 5/5 stars.
However, I am reluctantly deducting one star due to a couple of reasons.
In my boarding instructions, I asked that he is not in a situation which requires him to run, jump, climb stairs or be picked up/carried. I learned that Tracker was transported by the family car on one occasion. While I appreciate that he was not left home alone, I would have preferred that they consult with me first.
And finally, there is a large wasp nest in the ground on the left side of her side yard. If they were aggitated, this could be a fatal situation for any pet.
As long as I had confirmation the wasp nest was exterminated, I would board with Christine again and would also recommend her service.

My Mochi liked her during the Meet and Greet, so I decided to give her a try for a mult-day trip. Christine was very nice, friendly and flexible to work with. She also asked if it was ok for her to board another small dog at the same time; which was nice, as Mochi is not too use to being with other dogs.

When I picked Mochi up, she seemed very happy, and was even doing her "protecting" bark when I rang the bell to pick her up, so I know she felt right at home with Christine. Mochi was also a bit sad to be leaving

Christine is a perfect dog sitter for my puppy Chibi. Christine and her family took a good care of Chibi They even gave Chibi a bath,washed her toys,adored her just like their own dog.Christine is a trustworthy person. I am sure I will ask her to take care of Chibi again.

Our dog Brewster is an older dog that needed a little extra care. Christine was fantastic in caring for him. Brewster was totally relaxed when we picked in up after 5 days of her care for him. Christine has a very open and loving household that made Brewster welcomed. I highly recommend Christine and will use her again for boarding Brewster.

I needed daycare for my little Asya, and Christine was great. A meet and greet was easily arranged during which her calm thoughtful attention assured me that things would be fine. Her house is big, set up perfectly for little guests and her backyard is large and fenced. Her entire family were welcoming pals. Thanks for everything Christine and all your family!

Christine was very prompt in getting back to us. Our five pound chihuahua Louie was very well cared for while we went to our family reunion in Arizona. Sent pictures to us regularly and took him to the park daily. Would definitely use her again. :)
This was my first time using individual taking care of my dog, CiCi. I wasn't completely sure about hiring someone from website since I had no experience prior to this event. However, my worries were overturned. Christine took care of CiCi for 10 days and CiCi looks wonderful! It tells me how CiCi was well treated. Thank you, Christine!

Christine and her family are wonderful dog sitters. They took Sami on walks and played with her in their fully-fenced backyard. Christine also sent me pictures of Sami throughout her stay, which I truly appreciated. I could tell from that pictures that she adjusted well and enjoyed her time there. Christine is also very considerate. I had expressed that my dog is afraid of other dogs and when she received other requests, she checked with me to see if I had any concerns before accepting other dogs. I would not hesitate to have Sami board with them again.
