About Krista

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
++ Our calendar reflects our dog stay availability and does not reflect our cat stays or dog walking availability--if this is your need, please inquire even if it is stated we are unavailable ++

We know how stressful it is to find a reliable, respectful, and responsive pet sitter for your fur kid(s) -- we also know how stressful it is to "lend" your home to a pet sitter. As a result, we firmly believe in communication, respect, and meeting the needs of your fur kid(s), you, and your home. We are committed to being the best pet sitting experience you have had and our meet n' greets are free of charge!

My boyfriend and I have a combined 15+ years caring for pets, and are ready to lessen your worry while you are away. We promise to spoil, pamper, pet, walk, and love your fur family as if they were our own with twice the care, twice the availability, and twice the attention to detail!

Krista is the primary sitter and Francisco helps fill in when available, mostly on weekends. We are dedicated duo, responsible, have a strong work ethic, and are committed to providing the best customer experience for your fur family and yourself.

Please message us if you have any questions about our rates or policies!

FAQ / Policys:
-- Overnight care includes up to 3 walks, each additional walk is $5/each
-- Cats are $5 per night, if included with a dog
-- Dog walking is $15/walk, please ask about rate for more than one dog
-- Cat care is $15/visit
-- Holiday rate is + $10 to whatever rate applies -- Holidays include Thanksgiving through New Years Eve (11/25/15 until 01/02/16), Memorial Day weekend, Labor Day, 4th of July holiday, and Valentines day. While holidays seen plentiful, when we are with your fur family, we are away from our family. Having a higher rate during our peak seasons lets us order in and enjoy the holidays closer to your fur family.
-- Please message us if you are concerned about the total cost of your stay... we strive to be accommodating and understanding

Ever since we were young children, we have both had pets. From a small cats to a the largest of dogs we love all animals. Krista grew up in a household that always had multiple dogs; in fact her parents were respectable breeders of Alaskan Malamutes. Francisco also had dogs growing up and has been helping Krista watch dogs for the last year.

Why I love dog sitting
We have been a dog lovers for as long as we can remember! Dogs and cats have always been a part of our lives and truly bring us joy.

No pets of our own (yet).

My experience administering medication
We are okay with most medications but please discuss with us ahead of time so there are no surprises. Thank you!

We would like to know ahead of time about:
-- Any special dietary needs or allergies;
-- Unique feeding schedule demands;
-- If your fur kid is aggressive or fearful towards anything;
-- If your fur kid is allowed treats (and how many they are allowed);
-- Has favorite toys;
-- If they are allowed on furniture and in bed;
-- Does not like certain weather conditions (rain/thunder/snow, etc); and
-- If your fur kid has any special medical, emotional, or history issues (such as breathing problems, separation anxiety, or abuse history).

Knowing this will help us provide the best care possible!

I have been bringing my dog to Krista for a few months now and am always pleased with the updates and care she provides. My dog takes a little bit to warm up to people, but he seems to really enjoy staying with Krista while I travel for work.

If a friend asked me who to book, I would highly recommend Krista.
