About Chrissy

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello everyone and thank you for visitng my page! My names Christina and i am a dog sitter located in Rego Park and Forest Hills. I have experience with dogs all of my life and have dealt with both big and small breeds. I also have owned a Lakeland Terrier and German Shepherd in my life so i am no stranger to caring for dogs. Ive dealt with dogs with aggressive behavior/ possessive behavior as well as hyper dogs. I offer affordable dogsitting services because i dont think that a more expensive sitting service is necessarily better from my experience with dog boarding. I truly love animals. If you decide you would like me to watch your dog, your dog will be supervised 24/7, walked, played with and heck, he or she can sleep on the couch or wherever they choose! I will even update you with pictures to keep ones mind at ease. I have a pretty large space and my place is very clean. There will be absolutely nothing for your dog to accidently pick up and swallow. I also have no pets at the moment so you can guarantee your pet will be out of harms way.

About me, i was recently teaching English in Japan for 2 years and just came back and moved to Rego Park.I have an apt that has a lot of space since i am a minimalist. I am originally from New york and i am certainly glad to be back! I am currently not working right now so i can give your dog all the care and attention he/she deserves. My hobbies include knitting, exercising, writing poetry, and traveling abroad.

Thank you so much for reading! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me and i will accommodate to your dog`s needs.


UPDATE

.The dog boarding fee includes cleaning up accidents, Providing a clean dog bed, dry food if not provided by owner, 1 bully stick, toys, 3 walks everyday, treats if allowed by owner, and a spacious apartment with around the clock supervision. I am a very active person who loves going for walks and staying fit so plently of walks is no biggie for me!:)

I usually light a lavender scented candles to calm the air. This makes the environment very soothing for them and relaxes the nerves.

I also enjoy playing tranquil music on my laptop, especially when I have to step out for a minute. Usually when I do this, they usually fall asleep quite sound .

If your dog came wearing a jacket or came with a blanket, I usually launder these items after their stay.



****ABOUT YOUR STAY****

Dogboarding- please state pick up and drop off times.

For Dogboarding, pick up time on the day of departure is by 5pm. Any time past 5pm, there is a 20.00 additional fee.

Dog daycare is from any time in the morning until 6:30pm

Any pick up past 630 pm is subject to an additional 10.00 fee.

If your pup has any bladder problems, please bring dog diapers if possible. Another idea that is more cost efficient than dog diapers is to buy human diapers and cut a hole for the tail. It works for both males and females. WEE WEE pads are supplied.



** I am currently back and accepting reservations for the holidays so you can be with your family AND receive updates on your loved one!(woof woof!)

PROS:

I have no children so you don't have to worry about your loved one injuring someone

I have no pets of my own so you don't have to worry about your loved one clashing with another pup. I am also able to watch a pet singularly if requested which means I am able to block out the calendar and cater to your pets needs.

I do not overbook

There is literally 24 hour supervision.

They are not crated and I do not own any crates. They are only crated at the owners request.





I also do accept large size pups but there is an additional fee. Please feel free to ask.




Thank you

This was our first experience using Dog Vacay and Christina. Christina is very friendly and you can tell she loves dogs. We were very pleased with her care of our baby. We would use Christina again.
Christina is reliable and attentive. She has a very gentle nature that dogs like Patty respond to. She also takes them on great walks that i know my dog would mention if she could write this review herself!
Christina was lovely and took great care of Lincoln.
Christina is great, I would definitely use her again!
Christina was friendly and professional from our initial meet-and-greet until we picked Buddy up at the end of his stay. She asked lots of smart questions during our meet-and-greet that put me at ease. She was super responsive throughout the process and she sent me a nice update on Buddy's activities with photos. He stayed on his regular schedule of eating and going to the bathroom, which doesn't usually happen when we go away. I would definitely book Christina again!

Koro has pretty severe separation anxiety, so I'm always worried about having to leave him when I travel, but it was clear Christina took great care of him. We live in the same neighborhood and have run into her since he stayed with her, and he's excited to say hello which is wonderful to see.

TOTALLY AWESOME!!!! Christina was great in response time and sending pics. Christina was a saving grace with the summer winding down I couldn't find availability and I came across Christina's page. From the first day at our meet and greet, to the day her and her husband picked up Striker truly amazing totally saved me and Striker had a blast. I can tell he had a great time and was well taken care of. I know he had a blast and misses you guys. Thanks Christina I hope when the need arises you are available again. Thanks so much and I will totally recommend you in a heartbeat. Striker, Jonah and Lissa

We had an awful experience with Christina. She stated that she could watch our 17-month-old Boxer for 10 days, when we left on a trip. Our dog is very sweet, affectionate, playful, and hates to be locked in a room by himself. We told her that he is crate-trained, and goes to the crate if he needs a "time out". She refused the crate, and stated that he will never be unsupervised. She left him alone for some time the next day, and he ripped up some of her personal items. She then proceeded to punish his barking, which he does when he just wants to play or to drink water, by locking him in a room by himself. Eventually, on day 5, she cancelled the boarding at 7 am, stating that he is unmanageable and "needs a backyard." We never experienced anything like that with another sitter! We had to cut our trip short. Good thing we gave her emergency contact info of our family members, who took care of our dog until we got home. Otherwise, she'd probably just leave him in the street. Completely irresponsible and unprofessional.

Bear has stayed with Christina twice and she is an absolute joy to deal with from requesting a reservation, dropping him off, getting updates over the stay to the pick up. Bear is a fan of hers as well which is most important!! I hope to use her again very soon and I'd recommend her to anyone who needs a dog sitter.

Christina is a lovely person who has a passion for taking care of animals. This was my first time using dogvacay and the first time I have left my dogs with a person outside of our family. Christina took amazing care of them and updated me often with pictures and information. She even bought them new dog treats because my dogs were not eating at first while I was away, and she was worried. Entrusting your beloved pets to someone is a tremendous worry, so handing them over to a new person is extremely stressful. However, we struck gold with Christina and I am so thankful that we found her. My family and I were able to rest and enjoy our vacation knowing they were in excellent hands.

If we need someone to look after them again and Christina is available without a doubt, we will hire her again.

P.S. One of our dogs spent his first few days back home in a sad state. We finally figured out that he was missing her.

Patty is a handful but Christina was patient and made her feel comfortable! Thanks for a great stay Christina!!
Christina was a wonderful host!! She sent me photos of my pup together with updates on how he was during the week I was away. He was very well cared for and looked content in the photos. I would recommend Christina - she clearly loves dogs and takes excellent care of them.

Great communication and immediate responses. Would use Christina again to dog sit Wonton. Wonton came back to me healthy and happy, that's all I can ask for.
I was worry free with Christina
Christina is the best! If I left a review for every time we left Gracie with her, we'd fill her wall with 5-star reviews!

Christina keeps us updated and sends us wonderful pictures of Gracie clearly having a blast both indoors and out on wonderful walks and in parks in the neighborhood.

And Christina is wonderfully communicative and flexible, so we always hear back right away when we book a reservation.

Grace loves Christina and now knows the way and starts to get excited when we start heading over to drop her off.

Can't recommend her highly enough!

Our dog was quite happy after her experience. We received picture updates and updates in the afternoon. Would recommend to all.
Gracie had lots of fun with Christina!
Christina was great with Alejandro and very good about sending me pics and updates while I was away. I highly recommend her as a hostess.
