About Cristina

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi,

I have been around dogs all my life and adore dogs of all kinds. I have taken care of numerous dogs from small to extra large and elderly dogs that need a little extra TLC. Bring your beloved dog to a home full of fun and laughter. Your dog will become part of our family and enjoy lots of affection, playtime and exercise. I have two loving children and a husband who adore dogs and they will lavish your dog with much attention, as well.

We have a two story home with a secure backyard for your dog to roam around. Within walking distance is a park and walking trails. With your approval I can also take your pup to a local dog park which is about a 10 minute drive. If you desire, I will always provide free email or text updates with photos of your pup ease any worries.

We take only 1 dog at a time (unless they come from the same household) to make sure your pup gets the royal treatment. Since we do have children we prefer dogs who are well behaved, house broken, gentle and very kid friendly.

If you bring treats I appreciate it if you provide peanut and nut free treats. We are a severe peanut and tree nut allergy family.

First Dog - $38.00/day
Second dog - $5.00 discount (second dog must be from the same household)
Check in time - Any time after 9 am
Check out time - 7 pm (half day charge for pick up after 7pm)

Cristina is a wonderful host, very good at taking care of our 9 year old Labradoodle Dakota, and sending us pictures every day. We would love to have Cristina watch Dakota again in the future and would recommend her to anyone looking for a dog sitter.

I am so glad I found Cristina and her family to watch Archie while I went out of town. Not only did they watch him, they included him as part of their family. Cristina and her two sons took him running every morning and she told me that when the boys lagged behind, Archie stopped and waited for them, just like they were all part of the pack. Archie is shy at first and they made him feel comfortable soon after he arrived. He slept with one of the sons on his bed, just like a regular family pet. Cristina sent daily updates via texts and lots of pics. I will definitely book more stays with this family.

Christina was wonderful, as was her family! The text/picture updates were much appreciated and I could tell my dog very much enjoyed himself.
Christina was fantastic. It was my first time leaving my dog with anybody so I was a little nervous. Christina was very helpful and made me feel comfortable with the whole process. When I dropped my dog off, her house is secure and she was very attentive and asked all the right questions! Thank you!

It's a HUGE comfort & stress reliever to know that our furry kid is in such loving & capable hands when we're traveling. Christina and her family are simply wonderful! ~Janine & Larry K
Cristina took care of our Lily for two weeks while we were out of the country. We couldn't be happier with her care and attentiveness to our puppy. She and her family gave Lily lots of attention and even longer walks than we take her on. Our daughter was wondering if Lily would want to come home with us after being treated so well! It was truly a vacation for our doggy! Cristina sent us regular photos and updates as well. She was careful to follow Lily's regular routine and has the perfect home, yard and family for a dog. I appreciated that she only takes one dog at a time as well. If I could give her even more than 5 stars I would! We will definitely use her again. Thank you
Cristina!

Christina NEVER disappoints! For a while there we were unsure if Parker wanted to come back home with us….

Wonderful care and lovely updates while we're away. Parker loves staying with Christina and her family while we travel. She's the best!

Cristina and her family took excellent care of my elderly dog Samantha for a little over a week, and they cared for her as if she was their own. There was a medical, age related issue and she got my Sammy to the vet right away and made sure she had a good recovery afterwards. Cristina also made sure my dog got her regular walks, special diet and meds, evening treats, and her kids would even read to Sammy. I received daily texts and photos of my dog and I thought that was a very nice touch as well. I could not be happier with the services that Cristina and her family provided me, I would definitely use her again and I highly recommend her to anyone who needs a dog sitter and wants to leave their dog in a safe and loving home and family environment.

Christina and her family were wonderful with Timmy! While it was just an overnight stay, Christina kept me posted with how Timmy was doing, sent photos, and had me & my husband at ease while we enjoyed ourselves. When we brought Timmy home, he immediately crashed on his pillow, which is the best sign of a fun time. The thank you note was a thoughtful touch and I'm just so pleased to have had a great experience. I highly recommend Christina & her family and Timmy definitely looks forward to future stays.

Cristina and her kids did a great job with my dog. I really appreciated the constant updates (photos included) about how he was doing and the activities they were up to. It is very obvious they love dogs.

I will definitely use them again. My dog can't wait for me to leave town again :)

Katie was made to feel right at home the moment she arrived at Cristina's home; her two sons called Katie by name to come and join them upstairs... Katie was happy!!! Kids to play with!! Cristina sent me pictures throughout the day of Katie playing soccer and other games with her two sons and with them loving on Katie and Katie loving them back...Katie slept very well that night when she returned home... no doubt dreaming of her new found friends...:-) Thank you Cristina and family for welcoming Katie into your home.. Carol and Katie

Christina & her family take such good care of our furry wee lass! It is so nice to know she's in such good care when we're traveling. We LOVE getting picture updates too because we always miss her so. Talk about separation anxiety!

If we could give Christina more than 5 stars, we would!! Your furry kid will be in excellent care while you're away.

Excellent host
If I could give Cristina more than five stars I would! Our baby Daisy has stayed there twice now. She has a lot of energy, but they still manage to send her home nice and tired :) She loves playing with the kids. Cristina sent multiple pictures and updates, which we loved. When we picked up Daisy it was obvious that she loved being there.

Thank you Cristina!

Five Stars! We are VERY pleased and happy with the care our little furry kid received while we were traveling. We were hoping that Parker would want to come back home with us, because she FINALLY had some little boys to play with! Christina kept us updated with texts and some wonderful pictures of our little girl.

It was a great stress-reliever to know that Parker was in the best of care with lots of love and attention while we were away. We will definitely have her family care for Parker in the future!

Christina and her family were terrific in caring for our yellow lab, Casey. She was definitely considered a part of the family while we were away, and we didn't worry about her a bit. Christina texted us regular photos and updates to let us know how she was doing during her stay with them. Definitely recommend her as a quality provider.

Cristina and her family were awesome. I was returning somewhat late in the evening, and she was very accommodating in allowing me to pick her up. She could tell I was a little nervous about leaving Sophie, given it was our first time, but she made me feel at ease. She took photos' and sent me text. Sophie seem to be very happy, and I would definitely use her service again.

I was able to relax and enjoy my vacation knowing that my two small dogs were being so well cared for. They were showered with love and attention and treated as part of Cristina's family. I would highly recommend Cristina to everyone I know!
I would trust her with my dog anytime!
We really liked the fact that Cristina takes one dog at a time. We did a meet and greet with her, and found her easy going, always smiling, and she loved our dog. Cristina kept me informed in the morning and the afternoon of how Buddy was doing. She sent pictures as well. Buddy had so much love and attention from Cristina and her family, that by the time we picked him up he came to us with wagging tail. His normal is jumping up on us, yelping. This is his way to let us know he’s had no attention and been left along too long.
Looking for dog care look no further! Cristina and her family are fabulous.

It was a pleasure leaving our dog with Cristina and her family.
From the moment our dog stepped in their home she felt comfortable and we were at ease.
Cristina and her family are an excellent location for Rocklin based dog owners that are about to take a vacation. she is reliable, trustworthy and has extensive knowledge with dogs. when speaking to her, before dropping off our dog,about administering medicine to our dog she did not hesitate to say yes, thankfully she did not have to, but knowing that there is someone this attentive to your dog needs is excellent.
We were happy to receive daily updates with pictures as to how our dog was doing.
**we will surely use Cristina's services for future vacations.**

Cristina and her family made my vacation worry free as far as our dog's well-being in our absence. They really made Tori feel like part of their family, which was quite evident when I picked her up at the end of her stay. I feel like Tori gained an extended family!

Cristina and her family took wonderful care of our Shirley! Cristina sent regular updates to let us know how our dog was doing. I would definitely bring Shirley there again!
Cristina and family did a great job. Lucy got plenty of walks and attention. The boys also did a great job playing with Lucy. Would highly recommend. Thanks you for giving Lucy such wonderful care
Daisy had a wonderful time with Cristina and her family! She event sent photo text updates. Highly recommended.
Christina and her family watched our dog over the Thanksgiving holiday and I don't think we could have found a better host. During our trip, Christina sent updates about Piper and it was obvious that she had been well cared for when we picked her up. The next time we go on vacation, this will be the first place we check for availability!

Cristina and her family were such wonderful dog hosts! I felt so at ease leaving my Lady with them. This was my first time ever leaving her with someone other than immediate family. Cristina sent me multiple pictures and text messages throughout the weekend with updates on Lady. I loved receiving the pictures and hearing about what the family was up to, I know that Lady enjoyed her visit with them. I am definitely going to take Lady to Cristina when I go on future vacations. Thank you! :)

Cristina and her family were wonderful! From the moment I visited I knew that my dog would be in great hands! Cristina sent me many pictures and my dog came back completely exhausted too, which was great.
I will definitely have Cristina and her family take care of Violet again. They took excellent care of her and Violet had such a good time playing.
This was our first time using Dogvacay and we just loved the entire idea of it. Cristina was just terrific and she sent us a text right away to assure my nervous mom that Rambo was doing great. I highly recommend Cristina and the service.
Christina and her family treated Claude as one of their own. She sent pics to keep me updated and in touch with my dog. I felt confident the whole time that he was being well taken care of and attended to. I highly recommend Christina.
