About Christina

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My family and I would love to care for your pup! We have a dog (Chestnut) that would be delighted to have a fur buddy to play with. She is the most loveable, gentle, playful, easy going Golden Retriever who loves to socialize with all types of dogs.

We live in a two storey detached home with a large (all grass with a wooden porch) backyard in a very quiet neighbourhood. We are an animal loving family in the Scarborough Bluffs area (just five minutes from the lovely Beaches in the East End of Toronto). We have many green spaces around us (e.g., lovely park across the street from our house, and a really nice off leash-dog park only a few blocks away that overlooks the water.

We’ve had our dog Chessy since she was just a puppy so we have lots of puppy experience and we’ve also been to numerous Petsmart training sessions.

We have an orange cat named Pumpkin who has a calm temperament and has grown up with dogs so he has a very relaxed demeanor around them. He’s an outdoor cat so he spends his time either with his friends outside or enjoys cuddling and sleeping in our house.

Family members include: my husband, two children (16yrs old and 13yrs old) and myself. We are an outdoorsy family who loves walking, hiking, camping, biking, tennis and jogging.

There is always someone home during the week and on the weekend, all of us are home.

I will send daily reports with pictures (e.g., calling, texting or email – your preference) upon your request.

Please contact me if you would like your pup to be surrounded with love, cuddles, socialization and plenty of outdoor stimulation and exercise!

We look forward to meeting you and your furry family member!

Christina's home is a happy one!!
I recently picked up a full time seasonal position, and wasn't able to properly care for my pup over a busy weekend. I found this site, and Christina's profile, and took a chance and requested a booking without a meet and greet, since I needed her services the next day. She warmly accepted, and we spoke on the phone. Within the first few moments of the conversation, I knew my pup would be happy and safe with her and her family. My golden doodle, Hennessy, spent the weekend with them, and came back happier and more loved than ever before!! They gave him lots of attention, spent plenty of time outdoors, and sent me picture updates a few times a day. I would highly recommend Christina to anyone looking for dog sitting. I'm so glad we found her, and will definitely be using her again without a doubt!!

Cali had a great time with Christina! We loved seeing all the photos she sent us of her and her family cuddling and playing with Cali all weekend :)
Christina was fabulous. Gus, our Havanese, adored Chestnut and was thoroughly spoiled by the family. Christina was so keen to treat him as her own and she wanted to keep all is preferences the same as those at home. We could not be any happier and more importantly, nor could Gus, who is excited for his next visit!

I couldn't speak more highly of Christina and her wonderful family who took such good care of my goldendoodle, Chloe, for 3 weeks! They treated her as their own and sent us pictures throughout her stay of Chloe having a grand time! Quite frankly, I think Chloe is wondering where all the extra attention has gone now that she's home! I wouldn't think twice about hiring Christina again in the future!

Christina and her family were awsome; my timid goldendoodle "Taylor" was very comfortable there and she had lots of fun being out with the family dog and another doodle; I am happy to have found Christina, now I have a safe and fun place to leave Taylor at in the future.

We were nervous to leave our 8 month old pup with anybody for the first time. Christina and her family made Milo's visit and our vacation go extra smoothly! They are a very honest and caring family who accommodated all of his needs and sent us daily updates and pictures. It was an excellent experience for us and for our dog!

Christina and her whole family were fantastic right from the start. We were initially very nervous about leaving Oliver to stay with someone as we had never really left him before. Christina made us feel quite comfortable with the process right from the initial meeting. They were very good with Oliver and we got the feeling that Oliver was being treated like a member of the family. They definitely went above and beyond our expectations and when we go away again there will be no hesitation on who we will call. Great job guys.

Christina is a rockstar. Our dog, Maple, stayed with 3 other people during our vacation and Christina was by far our favorite! Maple stayed for a full 8 hours of daycare and throughout the day I got tons of updates and photos that truly put me at ease knowing my furbaby was in good hands. Her children seem to equally love dogs and they gave our sweet Maple attention and love while we were gone. If you're scoping out DogVacay looking for the perfect sitter... Stop right here! Christina is the real deal. We were hesitant for her lack of reviews, but you have to start somewhere! So very thankful we came across her profile. If we are ever in the area we will not hesitate to book with her again. Maple says hi to you, the kids, and Chestnut!!

Fantastic. Will be the first person I think of next time we need someone to watch our dog!
This is a very friendly and responsible dog loving family. They provided lots of love, attention and activity for our dog. She came home healthy and happy. I do not hesitate in recommending this host to people and hope to use them again, myself. Thanks Christina and family!

What a lovely family! They took such good care of our fur baby (Bogart) and we received multiple photos throughout the day to prove it. He made a new friend in their dog Chestnut who was playful and patient with our rambunctious pup.

We had more peace of mind leaving Bogart here than we have ever had leaving him at the (very pricey) kennel. We will be, without question, return customers.

Bogart would like to say thank you for the amazing visit, but he's busy sleeping. Making new friends is tiring business.
