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.

I am from Los Angeles and live in NY for the next few years, and have had to grapple with the difficulties of leaving my dog with the average dog-sitter (and coming back to him being completely anxious, sick, sad and unruly) or never visiting home. dog-sitter (and coming back to him being completely anxious, sick, sad and unruly) or never visiting home. In February I found Chris and this will never be a concern for me again. I now am 100% confident my dog is in good, caring hands.

With our first stay last month, Chris watched my dog for 4 days. I was incredibly uneasy beforehand, but the moment my dog met Chris and his dogs, I knew it would all be ok. My dog is a rescue and over the past 6 months that I have had him, we've worked a lot on separation anxiety, socializing with other dogs, and training. Whenever I have left town previously, I feel like we take 10 steps back in our training due to the stress of my absence.I have no idea how, but since the last stay with Chris my dog's demeanor has improved.

If you are in a similar boat and are uneasy about leaving your precious pup with a stranger, seriously do not look any further. He is wonderful. I just came back from being away for 5 days and my dog is as relaxed as can be. Not anxious, not worried--this is amazing.

To logistics:
- very easy to coordinate with
- responds to messages promptly
- professional
- accommodating
- is home to several dachshunds and seems to frequently walk, day sit, etc other dogs so his house is like a summer camp of fun!
- has a kind family and warm home


Highlight: He is awesome
Cons: none.

Chris was a great host and the process and everything involved was very smooth, simple and easy. This was a great advantage over some more complicated processes with other hosts. We will definitely be back!
I am sure my dog had a good stay at Chris' place, by how at home she felt when we walked in. We stayed away for one week and it was good to receive the constant updates about her being fine.
