About Chris

16 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We take it "ONE DOG AT A TIME" to provide your furry friend with 1-on-1 care at all times. Siblings welcome too!

** Now certified by St. John's Ambulance in canine first aid/CP **R

Hello there! We're Chri & Tophers, professional dog-sitters for dogs of all shapes and sizes.

Situated in a quiet, dog-friendly subdivision in Bowmanville, your dog's home-away-from-home is a clean and tidy, smoke-free, 2-storey detached home with a fenced in backyard perfect for dogs. It sits 2-blocks from a large school yard, and just moments away from Bowmanville’s expansive, fenced dog park.

Throughout his or her stay with us, your dog will enjoy the freedom to roam and explore the main floor (including the kitchen, dining room, front hallway and living room) and will be given ample opportunities throughout the day to enjoy the backyard. All these areas get beautifully flooded with natural sunlight, although shade is never hard to find.

Other areas of the home your dog may want to sniff their way around include upstairs bedrooms and a home office, all of which receive a great glow of natural light.

Your pet will have constant access to fresh water, and will be diligently fed according to any meal schedule you provide. Treats will be also be provided.

If your dog is on any medications, please let us know. We’re happy to administer any pills or liquid medicines your dog requires.

We don’t kennel (unless you request it), but do have multiple, comfortable, well-lit “time out” areas that we can use if your little guy or girl needs some alone time.

For those boarding their furry friends with us, we offer a number of sleeping arrangements based on what makes your dog feel most comfortable.

To ensure your dog is given the very best treatment, we accept only 1 dog at any given time. Exceptions can be made (at your request) if additional dogs are from the same family, or have a preexisting friendship with one another. Inquire about pricing for multiple dogs.

Topher will be the primary caregiver for your furry friend during their stay, and he will be with them around the clock. Chris will be on hand during evenings and weekends as an additional caregiver. We’ll ensure your dog enjoys play time (both inside and out), food, fresh water, treats, exercise, quiet naps and comfortable sleeping arrangements.

BothTopherr and Chris have extensive experience caring for dogs. We:
• had an amazing golden retriever, Cody, for 14 years
• have relationships with the GTA's veterinary community (including two of Bowmanville's leading vet clinics, the emergency animal hospital in Durham, and the Toronto Veterinary Emergency Clinic)
• volunteer with Golden Rescue, a non-profit rescue organization for golden retrievers
• have, for years, been regular dog-sitters for friends and family
• launched “Cody's Campaign” lobbying the provincial government to eliminate the HST on veterinary services and medicines
• regularly donate to canine causes
• joined the Dog Vacay community in the hopes we can expand our passion for dogs into a full-time business

What makes us special:
• we're passionate about canines
• we've cared for dogs for over 16 years
• we have strong relationships with the veterinary community in the GTA
• just like dogs, we're kind, loving, loyal and dependable
• Canine first aid and CPR certified by St. John's Ambulance (proof of valid certification available upon request)
• references available

We request that your dog is:
• up-to-date with their vaccinations
• free of fleas and tics
• generally well socialized

Please note a premium of $10/day is added for stays on the follow days:
• December 1 - January 2
• February 14th
• October 31st
• All stat holidays, and holiday weekends

We look forward to meeting you and your little furry one(s) soon!

We have now used Chris's services 3 times and it was perfect every time. Our pup, Miller, loves spending time with these guys which gives us great comfort when we have to travel. Chris is also very responsive and easy to deal with.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Chris. Miller will be back in the fall when we travel again.
This was first time I ever boarded my 10yr old Scottish Terrier. Oscar was my son Sean's dog - Sean sadly passed away 4 yrs ago and I have had Oscar since then to love & cherish. When reading the dogvacay site I was impressed with the fact that Chris P only takes one dog at a time which was very important to me as Oscar is not used to being with other dogs and I wanted him to get one on one attention. Chris & Christopher followed his routine (and he followed them everywhere apparently) and the pictures were comforting. I would not hesitate to send Oscar there again - he came home a happy puppy. Thanks guys for taking such good care of my boy.
This was the first time our Cavaliers Riley and Baxter have had an overnight with Chris. It was so great to receive news from Chris on how they were doing AND photos!! Cavaliers are known to be the dogs who don't think they are dogs, Riley in particular. In the past, after overnights with other caregivers, Riley would not speak to me for at least 2 days, no eye contact, literally turned his back on me. Not this time!! We are so happy and relieved that Riley and Baxter will be very happy, safe and well cared for with Chris when we take our trip to Italy. Thanks Chris!!!
