About Krista

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
**If my schedule shows as unavailable and your dog has previously stayed with me please feel free to contact me as I may be able to still accommodate you.**

**When I have dog(s) staying with me I generally only accept one family at a time.

**In your reservation request please provide the time you plan on dropping off your dog(s) and also the time you will be picking them up. I do charge a fee for any overnights that extend extensively past the 24 hour period from the time of drop off.

Your dog(s) will feel right at home in my loving home. Your dog(s) will get tons of physical attention and stimulation while staying with me. Also, I'll update you frequently with texts/emails pics and videos of your dog's adventures.

At most, I am gone 3 hours out of the home when I'm boarding a dog. I do live in an apartment in Arlington, but the grounds have large green spaces and there is plenty of areas to go for great walks.

Holidays: Holiday rate is $25.00 extra per day. The $25.00 fee will only be charged on the following holidays: New Year’s Eve & Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day (Fourth of July), Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve & Day.

**I have recently rescued a 4 year old mini schnauzer who was dumped by a breeder. She is extremely sweet and has met several other dogs and there hasn't been an issue. She really has no interest. Essentially she's a couch potato.

My dog Maddie is not a friendly dog with strangers, but she seemed to sense that Krista was a dog person and seemed happy to stay with her. When I retrieved her, Maddie made the astonishing effort to go to Krista to say goodbye. I was very impressed with the care Maddie was given.
Krista is amazing! She has watched Simon several times and always does a great job. She is very attentive and her place is super dog friendly.

It is clear that Krista is great with animals. She has dealt with Simon when he has had both good and bad behavior. And she always reaches out to us if she has any questions and will send us cute pics while we are away.

Simon always has a great time there and would probably be happy to stay with Krista forever! Krista is the only sitter I go to in the area and I highly reccomend her.
Krista was pleasant, timely with her visit and detailed in her update - she was enthusiastic about our lovely dog and we definitely plan to work with her again!
