About Krista

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello!

My name's Krista and I've had dogs around me since I was born. I'm obsessed with the friendly creatures! I have a miniature poodle named Bijou and she is just the friendliest. If you have a dog that likes to play, Bijou is the perfect companion. I am currently training Bijou to become a service animal therefore, I am very educated in the techniques of positive reinforcement. If you need any tips for unwanted behaviors, I would be more than happy to help you through them, and also practice those good behaviors on your pup while he or she is with me!
Bijou and I go on at least two thirty minute walks a day, and even go to the dog park! If you're okay with it, we can all go to the dog park together. If not, an extra walk is definitely an option. I also do small training sessions throughout the day with Bijou and your dog is welcome to join in! Even if he or she is already trained, it's still a fun mental exercise for the pup.
Your pup will hang out in the apartment with myself and Bijou. I spend all day at home doing freelance writing, so your dog will always have someone to hang out with.
Thanks for reading and I look forward to meeting you and your four legged best friend!

Krista has babysat my pets a few times. She always sticks to their diets and feeding times. She even let me FaceTime with them during playtime when one was sick. I would recommend her to anyone.

Krista has a gift with animals and it's evident from the beginning. My dog is temperamental and selective, but adores Krista. I have a real sense of peace knowing my dog is in good hands. She's responsible, charismatic, and punctual. If you want your pet to receive the same love, care, exercise, and praise you give them, I highly recommend Krista.

Before Krista moved to Portland she was my first choice to dog-sit Pixel. I needed someone who could treat Pixel like one of their own because he gets anxious and lonely easily. Krista goes above and beyond and has been an invaluable asset. She gives 100% to her clients and strives to understand individual needs.

Krista is incredibly attentive to dogs she is responsible for. She studied hard to understand her own puppy and has a really great sense of what dogs understand and when they are trying to communicate a need. Recently we were together and at a friend's house. They said their dog won't listen to anyone. Within a few minutes Krista was training the dog to sit and rewarding the dog with treats and a ton of love.
