About Christina

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am 36, originally from here in the Hudson River Valley, lived in Maryland for 10 years ad returned to New York in 2011. Mongo is my second rescue and third canine companion. I have fostered cats since 2007 and raised lizards, hamsters, and fish. I enjoy the company of animals and good people. I am not put off by snakes and rodents, nor unappreciative of cats and fish, whoever you have invited to join your family. My schedule is based around a part time job and full time college. I start my weekday with a work shift from 5am to 9am. I am available after 1:30 pm Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, with an hour and a half break between 1030 and 12. Thursday and Friday I am available between 9 and 11, and then again after 330. I am free all hours on weekends. I am flexible with picking up and dropping off-whatever is most convenient is fine by me!

I can pay a visit to any and all pets that you have, and dog friends can come to visit us here for daycare in pairs, but only 1 dog at a time for slumber parties. I have space and experience for dogs who don't feel well or need special care. We do not board cats but are happy to pay them a visit them at home while you are away.

I have a comfortable indoor space as well as a safe, partially fenced in yard and a quiet walking neighborhood. We are close to trails and dog parks. We have gates and crates, just in case. Dogs are allowed on all the furniture, can use all the blankets, and of course are free to bring their own comforts if they wish. There is even a bed upstairs and guests are welcome to it. We have a two other humans in the house who enjoy the company of a furry house-guest as well.

Check through the pictures for Mongo and some of his friends.

Christina is the best! We left our 1 year old frisky pup Lucy with her for 12 days. We could not be happier with her care. Christina & Geoff were so attentive to our pups needs and opened their home for our visits. Her dog Mongo is so sweet and Lucy and him are best of friends...she misses him and Christina! We will be using Christina for all our vacations!

Christina's amazing! She completely made my very nervous dog at ease. And she was totally on board with the four chickens as well! We will definitely book again when we travel.
Our Jack Russell, Chelsea, is nearly 12, and we have never left her with anyone for a week, so we were very hesitant. Once we met Christina, we were put at ease. Chelsea had a great week, and Christina sent us pictures and video daily. So we had a great vacation, and Chelsea did too! We highly recommend Christina, and will definitely be repeat customers!

She was excellent and even went the extra mile to give Murphy a bath even though she was there only 2 days.
It was a pleasure to have Christina as my dogs' baby sitter. My dogs never been to a kennel or boarding place ever. Neither any dog sitter was appointed for them. My dogs Joy and Charlie are old and having health issues. Christina took care of them very affectionately. My babies were happy and comfortable with her. I am looking forward to have Christina again and again.

Christina watched my pup Wilfork while I was visiting family in North Carolina and everything went perfect! I know my dog can be a handful at times but she took excellent care of him. I had to add an extra night due to a flight cancellation and she was so understanding which put my mind at ease. I even got daily pictures of Wilfork which made my day knowing he's in such a loving environment. She has the sweetest dog named Mongo who became best buddies with my dog. I couldn't of asked for a better experience. If you want to put your dog in excellent hands definitely contact Christina! I know every time we go away she's the first one we are going to call.

AWESOME! We LOVE Christina and Geoff! This is our second time using DogVacay, but our first time feeling 100% at ease, thanks to Christina. We'd use her again in a heartbeat! We love Mongo too!
Cant say enough good things about Christina. Wonderfull sitter. My pets and I are lucky to have her. Larry P
Christina was so flexible as well as great with Cruiser! She kept us filled in with pictures & little updates daily. She also helped get him back to us extremely early in order to see him as soon as possible after getting home. Cruiser seemed like he really enjoyed himself playing with Mongo. Overall, excellent experience!
