About Christine

Welcome to Petite Paws Paradise, a loving home away from home for furry family members weighing 20 pounds and under.

Daytime and overnight stays are tailored to suit each dogs' individual needs. Your fur baby will enjoy long and/or short walks, ample playtime, nap time (if they choose), dog park visits, canine companionship, and lots of love and attention.

Our neighborhood is safe and dog friendly, featuring paved sidewalks, quiet streets and a private, fenced-in dog park just a mere quarter-mile from our home. The beautiful Monterey Peninsula Recreational Trail is less than one mile away and is perfect for longer strolls.

Dogs are more than pets — they are full-fledged family members. Our pomeranian, Daria, loves going on outings with us, snuggling up on the couch, and tucking into bed with us at night. Visiting canine guests are welcomed as members of our family and enjoy the same love, attention and privileges as Daria.
I have been a dog owner for the past 20 years. When my beloved papillon, Wendy, passed away at 17, I began volunteering as a foster mom for Second Chance Dog Rescue. It's through this rescue that I met and adopted Daria. She was my second foster dog and I fell in love with her the moment I saw her.

During my two years with Second Chance, I fostered 53 rescue dogs, and cared for countless more as an in-home pet care provider. Opening my heart and home to all of my foster kids and their friends has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.

My husband, dog and I recently relocated to the Monterey area from San Diego. My husband is in the Navy and currently attending the Naval Postgraduate School. Though I am not actively involved with dog rescue work in the Monterey area yet, I am hopeful to continue the rescue mission in our new home on the Central Coast.

Though I am new to, I am an experienced pet care provider and have excellent references.

Monday – Friday

I also want to provide you with an opportunity to get to know me so that you can feel comfortable and confident leaving your cherished canine companion in my care.

Tucker had an amazing time with Christine!!
Be prepared to be Wowed!
I was very nervous leaving my naughty but sweet dogs with anyone before I met Christine. I have a diva papillon that barks a lot and rescue dog mix that likes to mark on whatever takes his fancy. Christine assured me that they would be fine, and if they were naughty, it would be okay. Wow-what a great attitude! You can tell she is very experienced with dogs and truly loves them-even when they aren't their best. I loved all the emails and pictures she sent me. I know they had a great time because they came back very relaxed and happy. I am so happy to have found Christine and I would not dream of using anyone else!
Christine is fabulous!! She and her husband made it a point to meet us outside so that all the dogs could meet on neutral ground, then we went inside and she has a baby gate set up so the dogs cannot run out the front door. Genius! THEN, we got updates from her on how our little guy was doing and photos from him playing at the dog park! Amazing. It is clear that Christine LOVES dogs and she treats each of them as her own. I am a doggy daycare snob and I would recommend Christine to any and all Puppy parents who need a loving place for their 'kids' while they are away!!
I would not hesitate to leave Bennie with Christine and her pup Daria again! From emailing her about booking a vacay, to the directions she provided to her house, to the questions she had about Bennie's food & sleeping preferences when we dropped him off I could immediately tell that Christine is professional, responsible, and a true dog lover - and most importantly that Bennie was going to be in good hands. She sent us updates of all of the fun things they were up to for the weekend, and Bennie got to enjoy some time at an amazing dog park by her house. I always get nervous when I leave Bennie with someone new, and I was not nervous at all when he was with her for the weekend. When I picked Bennie up it was clear that Bennie had a great weekend with her.
I'm so glad to have met Christine and Daria of Petite Paws Paradise! My dog and I are big fans! I used the daycare service and will definitely book an overnight stay the next time I'm out of town.

I love dogs but I always feel a little anxious about meeting new people. Christine put me at ease from our first communication. She is friendly and professional. We set up a meet and greet at a local dog park. She took a genuine interest in learning about my dog, his likes and our house rules. Daria is Christine's little shadow and the sweetest little princess. She is an older dog who didn't mind my puppy's crazy antics. I left the park feeling reassured that my little guy would be in good hands.

When I dropped my furbaby off, I noticed how neat Christine's home is. She also sent me text messages and pictures to keep me updated on what they were up to. My dog had such a great time! He is very active and loves attention. He got plenty of play time, walks, naps and cuddles. It was truly Paradise for him. When my husband picked him up, he was happy and ready for a long night's rest!

I like the ease of booking and paying online.
We had a wonderful experience with Christine and her dog Daria. Tucker enjoyed his time playing with Christine - who took him to the dog park and on walks and even bathed him after Tucker played in the mud for a little:) She was very thoughtful with Tucker - asked me everything from where I wanted Tucker to sleep to how much to feed him and when to what type of walks Tucker likes to take. If I lived in this area I would drop Tucker off with Christine any day. You can tell she is very much a dog lover and understands how difficult it is to leave your puppy for even a day. Christine sent me texts and photos to update me on how Tucker was doing and this made our experience wonderful.
