Kristina is warm and friendly, and my dog took to her right away. She helped me out a week before a trip, and stayed flexible with me when I wasn't sure if I needed her once a day or to stay at my house (quite the difference). We took my dog for a walk and chatted. She communicated with me daily while I was out of town, sending pictures and little text updates. My dog was kissing her or laying with her bed or out on a walk, so I know she was getting the attention she deserved. I would use her again.

Kristina, is a joy. We love it when she is available to watch our dogs. She is the best.
My kids were safe and sound while I was out of the country. Mission accomplished!
Kristina was amazing! She was great with my dogs! I will definitely be using her again!
I picked up Riley with a smile on his face. I'll definitely be bringing him back to his home away from home.
Watson's stay with Kristina was perfect, as always! He's always treated like one of the family there.
Kristina did a fantastic job with our dog! She made her feel very welcome in her home. She sent us photos of Izzy during her stay. She had just had oral surgery and Kristina took extra care with her and was able to administer medication. After we had taken Izzy home Kristina followed up with us to check on Izzy. We were very happy and Izzy was very happy! We would highly recommend Kristina and will her use her again if we ever need to!!

Kristina was great. Everything was perfect, and my dog Zooey was a happy girl. Thank you so much for an excellent experience!
Kristina was amazing with our dog, Bella. So friendly and caring. And we loved getting photo updates while we were away!!! Highly recommend her and her family.
This was the first time Little Tree & Buddy stayed with someone that wasn't a known family member or friend. I was so comforted to see that they were very happy, relaxed, and joyful when I picked them up. Thanks so much, Kristina!
Kristina was very friendly and attentive to my Minnie. Minnies was very happy when she came home and had a nice nights sleep from all the fun she had!
Kristina was extremely responsive and made it easy to communicate with her. Dropping our dog off and picking him up went smoothly and without any issues.
I was extremely satisfied wit Kristina's performance. She made us feel very comfortable and reassured considering this was literally a last minute booking. She took great care of Cookie. I will definitely use her services again.
I never like to leave my babies, but once in a while I just have to. I HIGHLY recommend Kristina H. I felt completely comfortable leaving them for the first time with her. She loves animals and took amazing care of my two dogs. She sent me photos of them walking and relaxing with her. I never once wondered if they were ok because she kept in contact with me everyday. I would definitely leave my babies with Kristina again.

Thank you, Kristina, for caring for Bella, allowing me to enjoy a worry-free vacation. She came home worn out from playing with the other dogs. I was happy to hear she was loved and well cared for.
Great week - thank you!
Roxie was well cared for and loved. She had a great time with Kristina, her kids, and the other dogs. Roxie stayed with Kristina for ten days and I have a hunch she can't wait to return for another vacay! Thank you Kristina!
Kristina was great! After the meet 'n' greet we went straight home to book her for an 8-day stay. Having never used DogVacay we were very pleased to get our dog back a week later happy and healthy. Kristina also sent along photos to keep us up to date on her goings-on.

Kristina and her family took great care of our Daisy. We were very happy with all of the great pictures. She was very flexible with pickup times. GREAT!!!
Kristina was great - she sent me many updates and was very reassuring. There were 8 dogs total in her care at the time, which I wasn't aware of when I dropped off my 2 dogs, but they seemed to be fine at the end of the day. I would use her again as a dog sitter for sure.

Kristina and her family are great! They took great care of Winston, our 2 year old golden retriever / german shepherd mix. The meet-and-greet was quick and to the point, and drop off / pick up was really convenient. She sent pictures and a few message updates over the long weekend, so we were very comfortable that our doggy was happy and having a great time while we were gone. We definitely recommend Kristina as a doggy host, Winston had a blast.

Fantastic as always. Kristina is great about pickup and drop-off times (even on my last-minute reservation), and Ollie is always excited to see her.
Kristina really helped us in a last minute situation. She sent great pictures of our dog each day and was always quick to reply to messages and calls.
Our flight was delayed getting back into town and she accommodated our chaotic schedule.

Our dog came back healthy and happy, I would definitely use her again! :)

We first left our 8 month old shih tzu, Teddy, with Kristina for a two week vacation to Europe back in March. That was our first time being away from Teddy which made me extremely nervous, but Kristina did a great job putting us at ease. She sent us pictures and updates frequently while we were abroad. We felt comfortable knowing Teddy was in her care. We recently left Teddy with Kristina again for a one night trip and will continue to look to her and her family whenever we need someone to look after the little guy. Thanks Kristina for taking such good care of Teddy!

Kristina was super helpful on very short notice. Thank you for everything! Chris
Kristina & her family are wonderful; very accommodating & made me feel at ease. I received daily updates and I could tell my baby girl was well taken care of.
It is always hard to leave a beloved member of your family with a stranger, but we we absolutely loved Kristina! :) She made sure that our puppy was comfortable, happy and taken care of while we were away for a few nights. She also made sure she understood what our dog needed at the meet and greet, so we had absolute confidence that Amelie was going to love it there. Thank you!!!:)

My first time using DogVacay and I'm sorry I didn't know about it sooner. Loved Kristina, she is very warm and sweet. I felt very relaxed leaving our dog with her.
Kristina was wonderful and very sweet. She cares a great deal for her dog and the dogs in her care. I will definitely book her again.
Kristina has watched my little boy two times now. She is very friendly and you can tell that she really loves dogs! I feel very comfortable leaving my dog there knowing he is in great hands (and I am quite picky who I leave my dog with).

My dog had some health concerns prior to the drop off and Kristina kept me updated and informed on how he was doing and gave him his medicine as necessary. I am glad to have found a great place to leave my dog while I travel!

Kristina is very sweet and kept me up to date with photos of my dog. I could tell she cares very much about the dogs she keeps!
My little guy had a great stay with Kristina and her family. He loved being over there. I'm so happy knowing that my dog is happy and being well cared for. Kristina's the best!
Mr. Watson had a great time with Kristina and her family! I think he's missing her and his dog friends already. So nice to have a stress-free boarding experience. Kristina sent photos and communicated daily so I never had to worry. Plenty of walks and outdoor play and companionship, just what we wanted.

Kristina and her family did a fantastic job taking care of Ziggy. From the pictures and updates we received during our vacation, we could tell our pooch was in good hands and having a great time. Thanks for everything!
Kristina is a super host! She came to the rescue with a scheduling challenge, and gave my pup a comfy and loving stay:)
We look forward to coming back soon!! Peanut is a very happy camper :)
My two dogs stayed with Kristina over the Thanksgiving holiday while my husband and I went out of town. Our entire experience working with Kristina was more than excellent! She responded to my message on DogVacay right away. She was available for a meet and greet later that day. She is extremely nice and responsible and a natural with dogs. I felt 100% comfortable leaving my dogs with her and her family for three nights, and it was so nice to have peace of mind about my dogs' care while I was out of town. As a bonus, she sent us pictures of our pups every day. My husband and I will absolutely hire Kristina again as a sitter!

Kristina is an awesome host! Our baby peanut had an amazing weekend with her, her family and her fur babies; he was treated with love and awesome care :) He came home sleepy from an eventful slumber party and we are just so grateful to have found such a great person to trust with our precious little angel!! I would highly recommend Kristina to anyone looking for the perfect dog loving home to care for a beloved fur baby in need of a vacation! We couldn't be happier :) Thank you dog vacay and Kristina, we look forward to coming back soon!

Banjo had a lovely time at Kristina's house this weekend. She was easy to book with and kept us updated with pictures and notes about how he was doing. He was wiped out when he came home, which is just what you want from a doggy sleep away weekend!
Kristina can always be counted on :) Excellent with smaller dogs! Thank you for taking such great care of Scupper!!
I never worry when my dog is with Kristina. She and her family treat him wonderfully! I am so glad to have found her.
We always feel like Scupper has a second home with Kristina & her family. They are caring & loving with our little guy which gives us peace of mind while on vacation. Thank you Kristina!!
Kristina has been wonderful with my sweet Oliver. She is kind, loving, and extremely attentive to him. I feel he has truly found another "home" and always call her if I need to be away . I am so glad I found her!
I am so pleased with the care and attention that Kristina gives to my sweet Oliver. He is always happy to stay with her.
Thank you for taking such wonderful care of our dogs. It gives us great piece of mind to know they are in such capable hands.

I loved the fact that I got pictures of our dogs everyday and didn't worry about them at all when I was out of town.

Thanks again. :)
