About Christopher

13 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! I'm a father of two boys, age 8 and 10 and three dogs: Maddie (our 13 y/o female), Chester (our 8 year old male) and Henry (6 year old male). All of them are dachshunds or, as we like to call them, hot dog dogs.

Our family are huge dog lovers and I am currently a stay at home dad. Our home is very pet friendly, with a spacious fenced in backyard. Our children were raised with dogs in the home, so they are responsible pet owners as well as a good best friend to have on hand to kick off a game of fetch or run around the yard with. I've lived my entire life with dogs, so I'm not only a pet lover, but I have lots of experience in caring for dogs of all kinds.

I'd love to meet your special pet and help you with walking, boarding or day care.

Christopher has taken care of our pets on multiple occasions and we highly recommend him! He is attentive, caring, and loves dogs! It was great peace of mind knowing our pets were well taken care of so we could enjoy our vacation.

I am so used to saying no to weekend getaways because my puppy can't come. Chris was available quickly to come and walk her while we were away. She was happy when we got back and well taken care of! Thanks, Chris!

My dog has a great deal of anxiety when he is around others. Chris and his family provided a gentle and comfortable environment making my dogs introduction smooth and as though they had been friends for years.

Chris and his family hosted our dog for over 3 weeks and we could not be happier to have found him. Our dog had a wonderful time and Chris sent regular updates of what he was doing with pictures. When his food was going to run out before we got back, Chris offered to buy the food I buy or use his own dogs' food. Cannot recommend him more highly!

Chris and his family are wonderful! They took such great care of our two dogs while we were away. We are so happy to have found someone that we can trust to leave our dogs with when we travel!
Chris and his wife were so friendly and easy to work with. They accommodated us for a last minute daycare request. My dog had a great time playing and was tired and happy when he got home. The house is easy to access-right off the Sprain Pkwy, and has a very high secure fence around a good-sized yard. My dog also enjoyed a snooze on the sofa. We will definitely be back!!

My pup stayed with Chris and his family for 10 days over the holidays, and everything went very smoothly. Chris responded promptly to all communications on the DogVacay portal. He sent frequent updates, including photos, so that we felt reassured that our dog was having a good time. We will definitely use him again!

Great Host ! Loved Chris and his family. They really went out of their way in taking care of skittles and making sure I felt comfortable with the whole process. Sent me regular updates, were flexible with pick-up / drop-off and skittles came back looking good. Would definitely work with them again.

Christopher and his family took excellent care of my dog for three days and two nights. I recommend him!
Chris and family are very nice and friendly. Our dog had a great time, they took really good care of him. Chris shared some pictures and updates all along the stay, it was nice to see our dog enjoying his vacation too!
Chris and his family took excellent care of my dog Jack, I couldn't have picked a better sitter. He was well exercised and given lots of attention. My dog also got along great with Chris's dogs, and I know he enjoyed the company. I would definitely go to Chris again for dogsitting!

We are so happy to have found Christopher and his family. It was a real treat for our beagle Charlie to be staying with them. Our pup got lots of love and attention. They treated Charlie like family and took him along on outings. Christopher was very responsive and kept us always up to date. We especially loved the photos he sent us of our pup. Christopher is definitely our first choice for boarding from now on! The best stay a doggy could ask for!!
