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!

Hello there! We're Christopher & Chris, 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.

Christopher will be the primary caregiver for your furry friend during their stay, and he will be with them around the clock. The other 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.

Both Christopher 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
• 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!

First time for our 4year old border collie to be away from us, and for two weeks too ! We were delighted to find someone who has no other animals at their home other then the one they are caring for at that time.Chris sent updates with photos every few days, they put us at ease as we could see she was happy and having fun. They were diligent in maintaining Lucys regular routine which made her transition seemless. We would not hesitate to use their services again, and would highly recommend them.
Thanks Chris & Chris for your
great care.
Maureen & Dave
Chris provided the best possible second home for our border collie, Duncan. Duncan is blind and Chris was very supportive of his special needs. We met with Chris prior to the first visit and found him to be friendly, caring and attentive to our concerns about Duncan. He was quick to respond to emails and initiated contact when we were away to let us know how Duncan was doing (and sent a photo!). Thanks for taking such good care of Duncan!
Chris and Christopher were great with my nervous golden Chloe. Always a little anxious leaving our pets but felt very comfortable here. Chloe was well cared for and will definitely be back again!
Lucky was well cared for. He appeared very at ease in their home. My daughter in law picked up our furry friend and commented to me that both Chris and Christopher were great. I would definitely use them again.
Chris & Chris were EXCELLENT dog hosts. I woild definitely RECOMMEND THEM!

They were flexible with pick up and dropoff to accommodate our travel schedule. Our German Short Hair Pointer is quite active and their fenced yard let her run free as well as the many walks they took her on. It is good to see they take only one dog at a time so there is no concern about how two different animals will get along. They kept us posted with emails and pics.

Excellent experience. ☺
Dexter had a great time! Thank you!
This was the first time we were away from our 6 month old puppy and we'll certainly be using Chris's services in the future. Everything went well and it was nice to not worry about being away from our dog.
Chris and Christopher were great host! Charlie adapted pretty quickly. I was very nervous to leave him for the first time, but we received many updates with pictures of Charlie. We will definitely recommend Chris to our friends, we can tell Charlie was well taken care of.
Thanks guys

Great - Riley adapted really well on his first visit away from home! Chris was great to deal with - definitely use again ! Thanks Rob & Lisa
From the moment I met Christopher and Chris I knew my pups would be in great hands! My people shy Dane warmed up to them very quickly and my Saint made himself at home immediately. They were amazing with sending updates and putting my mind at ease while I was away. If I were able to I would give them 13 out of 5 stars!!
Our 7 yr old english bulldog is very nervous and tense with ANY routine changes, therefore has been extremely difficult finding care for her. After meeting Chris, I felt better about leaving her in his care. There were no other pets and was a quiet home. I hoped she would be fine, but was surprised to see how happy she was. She didnt want to come home! I cant tell you how relieved I was. She had excellent care and he followed her routine to a tee. She will be returning very soon.. Thank you so very much!
Chis was a fantastic host who made sure our pup was comfortable and well cared for. I would definitely recommend this host for any fur kid.
Kayla had a great time over at Chris'. He followed her routine and made her feel at home. Kayla loved the company and had a very relaxing time.

She tends to get sad and not eat when we are away but she felt so comfortable that her eating was never an issue.

We will definitely leave Kayla with Chris again.
Chris looked after both our dogs very well over the week we were out of the country. Tucker is older and was still on medication from suffering a recent injury. Chris gave special care and ensured Tucker's medication was administered regularly. Whereas Lola is a pup at the other end of the spectrum and just learning everything. Even with this wide diversity, Chris was able to keep both dogs happy and healthy. Would absolutely trust our dogs with Chris again.
Both Chris & Christopher provided excellent care for my little Jazz. Jazz is a puppy mill rescue with a horrific five year start in life. These guys took her in for the better part of a month as I and my entire family were out of the country. I was so grateful to have found them both through this site and knowing Jazz was in a quiet and peaceful environment allowed me to enjoy my holiday with no worries. Although they found her extremely fearful, she actually has come a long way compared to just three short years ago and was as comfortable as she could be in their home. When she was first rescued she wouldn't eat unless isolated in a room and would physically tremble when people approached her or tried to pet her. I'd say she's come a long way and did very well during her stay with Chris and Christopher. I wouldn't hesitate to leave Jazz in their care again.
Warm Regards, Lynne & Jazz
We left Dila with Chris for four nights and he took amazing care of her. He was friendly and professional and had no problem following her routine. When I picked her up she was happy and I could tell she had been well taken care of. We will definitely use Chris again and will recommend him to our friends.
Chris and Christopher were exceptional hosts for our dog, Finn, who had a blast during his mini vacation with them. Their house is bright, clean and safe, and there is an amble sized backyard for the dogs to run and play. Christopher was diligent with feeding schedules and walks, and provided numerous updates to let us know Finn was having fun. Will definitely book with them again!
