About Christi

13 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Dexter and I have lived in Golden Colorado since 2004. We live in a cozy cottage near South Table Mountain. Dexter is a professional napper and his hobbies are looking really cute, napping, and watching the hikers pass to and fro on their way to the trails.

We have lots of time to give to our guests. We will follow and reinforce the rules from home at Mom & Dad's request, but otherwise, all family and guests are meant to be comfortable, like with a favorite grandma - who bakes! .
Our favorite activities together are neighborhood walks and trips to the dog park-, rain, snow, or shine!

My girls stayed with Christi for the first time over the Christmas holiday. I was super nervous leaving them with someone I didn't know for nine days, but as soon as I met Christi, I knew they were in good hands. She has a truly genuine love of dogs and a heart of gold. She provided daily updates and pictures, which I really appreciated...especially since this was their first time staying with her and it was for over a week! She also got to know my girls and their unique personalities and likes/dislikes and catered to them. I almost didn't write a review because I don't want everyone to know how great she is, but I know how difficult it is to leave our furry family members and Aunt Christi definitely provides a loving home for them to stay.
Christi did a fantastic job with Joy!!! I received picture updates daily. I would certainly recommend her!!!!
Our pups stayed with Christi over Thanksgiving. She's easy to communicate with and sent us tons of photos and updates throughout their stay. She obviously has a big place in her heart for dogs and went above and beyond to take care of ours while we were gone.
Christi was wonderful. Our pup had a great vacation while we were on ours. I know he felt loved and cared for and Christi gave us lots of updates with pictures. We would definitely use Christi again!
Our dog Bronson had a fabulous vacation at Christi's house over the Thanksgiving holiday!

We received daily photos and updates from Christi and know he had such a blast playing with her and other pups. He also received so much love and affection, I think he was disappointed to have to go home.

We can't wait for him to come visit Christi and her pup Dexler next time. Thanks again!
Christi is an all-star. This is pet sitting done right. She sent an update everyday and also included pictures of my dog having a ball at Christi's house. I will definitely be coming back.
Christi was great taking care of Lucy. Being an older dog Christi took special care of her to make sure she was comfortable and happy. Lots of great updates while we were away! Definitely would recommend her to others!!
Christi was great! She sent me updates and photos throughout the day. It was wonderful to know he was in great hands. I will definitely be booking daycare with Christi again!
Christi is and was an absolute delight. This was my first time dropping my dog off with someone she had not met previous.
Christi kept me up to date with Maggie over the weekend and helped me to feel at ease. I highly recommend her for her services and will be using her again!
I was so impressed with Christi and her easygoing manner. She has created a warm, safe, loving environment for dogs to be dogs, and her experience shows.
I felt extremely comfortable leaving my dog Bogey with her. She went out of her way to text me about the funny stuff that he was doing and she sent pictures too!

I know that I will be reaching out to Christi again for any of my future dog vacay needs, and I know that Bogey will be loved-up and happy while I'm gone.

Thank you, Christi!
Christi is great! Our super high energy Vizsla puppy had a wonderful time. So glad we found a place that loves our fur baby like we do!
We couldn't have been happier with our experience with Christi. We have a giant breed GSMD who is our only "child" so it's tough to leave him when we travel. Christi sent us frequent updates & pictures & took amazing care of our boy. He was super happy to see us when we returned, but we could also see the bond he had formed with Christi & that was just awesome. Highly recommended!
Christi was wonderful! We booked with her last minute and she was very flexible and accommodating of our schedule. She clearly loves dogs and has a great backyard with lots of room to play. We got text updates and pictures the whole time we were away and it was such a relief knowing our dog was happy and cared for while we were gone. We will absolutely book with her again, she is a dog-sitting superstar!
Sara had a great time and certainly wants to see Christi again
My dogs were so happy with Christi! She sent me lots of updates, which I appreciated, and took the best care of my pups. The only reason I gave 4 stars and not 5 is one of my dogs harnesses with her tags did not make it home with me, but my dogs are happy and healthy and that's all that matters!!
Christi was wonderful with my Maggie! This was my first time using dogvacay so I wasn't totally sure what I was getting my pup into but I am so happy to have found Christi! Thank you for taking good care of my baby!
Our dog Charlie was treated like one of the family by Christi. Christi really loves dogs!! We were amazed by her updates and photos of Charlie during his stay. Charlie usually has a tough time when we leave town, but he was very happy and content with Christi. I highly recommend dog vacay and this host.
Charlotte had the best weekend ever! Christy's home was set up as the ultimate dog retreat complete with a doggy swimming pool. She sent us updates and pictures throughout the weekend. The dogs all played together and slept together in her bedroom. She took them to the park everyday. It was an amazing experience from start to finish. We will definitely being going back, if she will have us!
Christi was an awesome sitter. She was flexible with pick up and drop off, and took great care of my puppy. We were regularly updated and sent pictures during our trip. Christi was great, we will be hiring her again soon.
Christi was extremely nice, sent a ton of pix and was a great host. Only reason I give this a 4 is because there were a lot more dogs then expected. If the dog number was lower, she would easily be a 5. I highly recommend Christi and her big backyard!
Christi has a gift for loving animals, especially dogs! She has a wonderful home and yard and our dog loved being pampered. Swimming pool, dog park, "pupcicles", walks...Laddie received more attention and exercise from Christi than we normally give him! Will definitely book again with Christi and her dog, Dexter.
Christi recently cared for my 2 fur babies. She took them in like they were her own... They had adventures to the dog park everyday! Will definitely look to have her care for them again :)
Ellie had an amazing time at Christi's last week while I was on a beach vacay. Christi was great about sending detailed e-mails of Ellies activities and escapades. Chrisi seems to spend lots of time with the pups and treats them as part of the family. Ellie can be a needy girl sometimes but that did not seem to bother Christi at all! I highly recommend Christi for your fur babies while you are out of town. You won't be sorry!
My dog Kersee had a great time at Christi's! Dexter was very sweet and tender with her and they enjoyed their walks and time in the yard. Christi kept us up to date regularly with photos, letting us know that our girl was doing well. We are so happy to have found a sitter that we feel comfortable with. "Ti Ti (auntie) Christi" treats her like family!
