About Christie

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
So let me just tell you a little about us and what we do with the dogs. My husband and I don't have children, so our dogs are literally our kids. Titan is a Harlequin Great Dane as well as a therapy dog. Chico is a plump Chihuahua and will charm your socks off. They are both super sweet, fun, and calming dogs. When we have visitors it's like our dogs are having friends sleep over. We take the dogs out early in the morning to play. After they get their energy out they have breakfast. Most of the time they are pretty good and tired and take naps. They have a snack around noon. The dogs have access to our fenced in backyard pretty much all day. Around 4 or so they go out again for a second run, swim, hike... depending on weather, season, and energy levels. Dogs have dinner around 6.

Daycare is Monday- Friday

Please Note- there are no pick ups or drop offs after 6pm Friday-Sunday

Cooper loved his stay with Chrisite! He came home happy, tired and well socialized.
This was the first time we had to use a dog sitter and I was nervous about leaving our dog with someone we didn't know. Christie keep me updated on what Ruger was doing through out the day by sending pictures and videos. He was very tired when he came home and slept the day away. I wouldn't hesitate to bring him back in the future if need be.

Dog slept for two days after staying with her! She had so much fun
Our dog Scamper had a great time at Christie's. He was there for 19 days and enjoyed himself thoroughly. It seemed that he and TJ hit it off really well.
Captain spent the week with Christie and the crew and couldn't have been happier. Captain is a 175 lb American Mastiff , so not your typical dog. She knows exactly how to handle these giants and he loves playing with her Danes and of course his buddy Chico. Christie takes the dogs out daily for walks, hikes and swims and makes sure they get enough rest and water in between. My big baby is not a fan of the summer heat and she knows exactly when he's had enough . We will be back for doggy daycare and vacations.

This was my first time with Christie. I was very pleased with the care she provided to my dog. She sent numerous pictures and at pick up told me all about his stay, which is important to me. My dog was very relaxed when he got home! I definitely will bring my dog back to Christie!

My dog spent the weekend of July 22 - July 24, 2016 at Christie's and she had a fantastic time! I highly recommend Christie for your dog care needs.

I have a 3 year old rescued Great Pyrenees who can be shy and skittish around people she doesn't know. It has been almost two years since she spent the night away from me (I usually take her with me) and I was a bit worried that things would not go well. But, I had family and friends coming to visit for the weekend and they wanted to go to Martha's Vineyard, so I used DogVacay for the first time ever. I chose Christie because she has a giant breed dog of her own, she takes the dogs swimming and does all sorts of fun activities with them and she has many wonderful reviews.

I could not be happier with my decision. We met at the park and were greeted by Christie's great dane. I could immediately tell that my dog liked her dog and it was a great way to get her acclimated so that I could leave without a lot of drama and sad puppy dog eyes. Christie sent me pics of my dog swimming and playing with the other dogs within just a few hours of dropping her off. I really appreciated the pictures because I was able to relax and enjoy my weekend knowing that my dog was having a great little vacation of her own!

Go with Christie. You won't regret it!

Christie was wonderful! I had never used a pet sitter before but wanted a change from the kennel. It was the right decision! Being at Christie's house was like summer camp for my dog Roscoe. He made new friends and went on numerous adventures with Christie and her dogs. She sent tons of pictures and even a video thoroughout the week which was so thoughtful of her because we were missing Roscoe!
I would highly recommend Christie and will definitely be booking with her again!

Our dog had a ton of fun!
Thank you for taking such good care of my two girls. Christie made sure that we were kept up to date during the stay and sent us photos of our dogs. Christie keeps the dogs happy, safe and active during their stay. A good dog is a tired dog!
My dogs go to daycare but when they get home, while tired, they are so tense and anxious but with Christie when they came home they were tired but chill and happy. They went so many places and looked so happy. Christie also sent a lot of pics of them and she was nice to work with. I will definitely use her again.

Our darlin always enjoys her visits with Christie & the gang. Christie really goes all in on caring for fur babies. Roxy romps & runs & splashes & plays & naps & nibbles & gets happily worn out. We feel safe letting our sweet girl stay with Christie. It's peace of mind knowing she will be so well taken care of. And we really love all the updates, fun pix, & videos we receive throughout her visit. A "Christie Getaway" is Roxy's 2nd favorite place. (At Home w/ her Pet People is 1st)

This was our first experience with any kind of pet sitter as Zooey is our first dog. It could not have been more perfect. We were updated with pictures and videos throughout the weekend showing what a fantastic time Zooey was having with her new found friends! I cannot rave enough about Christie. You can just tell that she is madly in love with all the dogs she cares for. It a bonus that Christie has such nice dogs for Zo to hang out with. After so much fun and activity on her vacay, I think our pup was definitely tired but also a little sad - just like we are after our get away!
She can't wait to go back. Thanks Christie!

I was a little nervous since this would be the first overnight my puppy would have away from home. Right off the bat I knew my pup Remi was going to love Christie! She was amazing with our dog! Christie sent us so many videos and pictures to keep us updated throughout her stay! It definitely made us so much more comfortable! We will be using her again!! I would recommend her to anyone!

Thanks so much for what you do!
Christi has been our dog sitter for a couple of years now. She has been a great vacation mom for our 3 furry kids! She goes WAY above and beyond what is expected of her, and I think she spoils them more than we do! We never worry when we go away, as our pups always come home clean, happy and tired.
I would recommend her in a heartbeat. Thanks to Christi and her husband Bill who loves dogs just as much as Christi does!!!

Christie was great! My high strung dogs were so at ease with her wonderful dogs Titan and Chico. They all had a great time. She took them to a wonderful trail and they got to scout around. She sent me pictures and videos while I was gone so I could see what my little guys were up to. She was so flexible and such a great host. My dogs can't wait for my next trip so they can go have some more fun!!

Lola always has the best time at Christies house - in fact she gets a little sad when we bring her home because she has so many dog friends and outings when with Christie! Christie keeps us posted with photos and videos of Lola's "vacation"..
Christie was fantastic - went out of her way to confirm that my dog would be a "good fit" with her dogs. Throughout the stay Christie kept the dogs very active and frequently sent pictures, videos and updates. A wonderful host - I would highly recommend!

Awesome stay Fr Cooper as usual with Christie.
She is awesome with Cooper. And he comes home exhausted...no wonder! We got pictures and videos regularly and she was very easy to get a hold of.

Let's just say I'm already booking for Cooper's next vacation with Christy again.

Such a great experience for my 5 month old puppy. She learned so much. Such a positive experience
Christie was absolutely amazing with Ollie. It was the first time ever we left our puppy alone. We were very nervous leaving him behind, especially when we saw the kennel friends had recommended. When I found Christie on dogvacay, I send her a message and she replied instantly. We met at a nearby field so Ollie could meet her Great Dane puppy, they hit it off immediately. It's obvious she loves dogs and knows how to take care of them. Ollie had an amazing time with her, all the videos and pictures prove that. We loved receiving pictures of Ollie playing with so many friends. He came home exhausted. Next time we go away and can't take Ollie, we'll be asking Christie again to take care of him.

My dog Montana is so excited to do to daycare. She loves the new friends she has made, and all the activity. Her tail starts wagging and the smile on her face as soon as she gets in the car is amazing. She knows she is going to spend time with her new friends. I love that Christy takes pictures and videos so I can see just how much fun she has everytime she goes to daycare. She is exhausted when she comes home, but falls asleep with a giant smile on her face.

Montana lovers her time at Christie and has made a lot of new friends. She is happy and exhausted when she comes home. She is always looking to get in the car when we go outside in hopes she is going back to Christie's to play. I love when Christie send me photo's of her day there, so I can see how much she is enjoying her time there and her new friends.

Christie is great my dog Jake loves going to her house she sent me pictures during his stay with her I cant thank her enough for all the love and attention she gives Jake Thank so much Kathy and Jake
It was clear from the start that Christie loves dogs, and is dedicated to caring for them and providing fun experiences. She was terrific with my dog, Carly. She worked with Carly's shy nature and sent us many pictures and a video of her running around a fenced in area and having a blast. Much different than what I've experienced with kennels. Highly recommend, we have already booked Christie for a 10 day overnight in Feb 2016 while we go on vacation.

Christie is awesome! My dogs love her...and I do, too! I have a senior dog and a puppy and Christie finds a way to meet their very different needs (quiet nap time for the 13 year old dog, and lots of walks and play time for the pup). They come home tired and happy. I can't say enough great things about Christie.

We are so grateful to Christie for taking care of Lucky for two weeks. She was very flexible in early morning dropping off and late evening picking up. We knew Lucky was having fun because of the pictures she sent us. Thank you, Christie.
Christie was a great host. She took great care of our Lab puppy, treating him as her own. She accepted our last minute request for stay during new year's eve. We received lots of videos and photos, it was evident he was having a wonderful time playing with her Great Dane puppy. She gave my pup lot of exercise. He was calm, relaxed and tired when we picked him up. We will definitely book another Vacay with Christie and I highly recommend her.

Christie was positively fantastic!! We have never left our pup with anyone before (this was the first time boarding, and a bit last minute) and she was so flexible and her love of dogs made us very comfortable with our decision! She responded promptly to any questions I had. Christie had us meet her at the park nearby so her dogs and our pup could meet in a neutral location. Our dog was greeted by her cute chihuahua and the sweetest, calmest great dane! They got along right away. While we were gone for the night, Christie uploaded pictures and videos of Riddle and the other dogs playing and having fun on New Year's Eve. She kept him very active and gave him lots of attention. When we picked Riddle up in the morning, she had given him a bath because he got a little dirty and had wrapped him in a sweater and had taken such good care of him! I was not worried at all and I am so glad we found Christie - we will certainly book with her again. She is so kind and loving and genuine. Thank you, Christie!

I am so glad I found Christie to watch my dogs! They had a blast and were truly on "pet vacation" while I was away. She sends pictures and videos frequently so you can see how much fun your dog is having! I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a quality pet sitter.

Christie literally saved us. At the last minutes before our flight we were able to arrange everything with Christie. She helped us through the process, dropping off and picking was easy and convenient.
She sent us pictures!
Christie is great! She gave Boyan so much love and attention. Thank you!!!

Christie took our 14 week old corgi, bailey, at the last minute on thanksgiving day. This was the first time we left our puppy with anyone and Christie was fantastic. She sent us pictures throughout the day and bailey looked like she was having a great time! She was exhausted when she came home, which I take as a good sign. We will definitely be using Christie again!

Christie was great! She made dropping off and pick times very convienent for us. She answered all my questions and I had a lot. She even gave Roxy a bath before she sent her home! We are definelty going to use Chrisitie again!
Christie is fantastic - she sent me tons of videos and pictures of my vizsla running around and playing with all the other dogs. I would definitely recommend her for dog care!
Christie is fabulous! She is a natural dog person and gave my dogs so much love and attention. They went to the beach, a walk in the woods and a car ride! She sent photos and videos of their excursions. This was my first dogVacay experience and I have to say, I can't imagine being more satisfied. I'm planning a weekend away in about a month and will absolutely be leaving my pups with Christie.

This was my first time using DogVacay and we were a little skeptical to leave our dog with a stranger... but Christie was AMAZING really AWSOME, my dog was well taking care of, and I've never seen him so tired, really he was "out" from playing so much.
I'd absolutely let Christie take care of my dog again.

Lola always has a great time with Christie D. She is Pawsome! Christie sends videos of Lola's vacations and she is always happy and playing - we always know she will be well taken care of when she visits Christie and her family.
Christie took my dog on extremely short notice. She was flexible with pick up and drop off times. She sent multiple videos of my dog playing with other dogs, and it was nice to see she was in good hands. An 8 month old vizsla's energy was no match for Christies hard work, and dedication to making sure my puppy had the best experience she could.

Our 2 dogs had an overnight stay. Christie kept them running and playing. They came home to us smiling and exhausted.
While we were away we received a video of our dogs playing with the other dogs. It was so good to see them enjoying themselves.
Thank you Christie!

Christie is very sweet, friendly and so accommodating! Her excitement to care for Missy showed from day one. She communicated with me via texts and pictures of Missy. She involved Missy with her day-to-day activities - Missy had a wonderful time! Missy especially loved Tyson and Chico. When we're back in the boston area we will definitely contact Chrisite again!

Our two dogs had a wonderful time with Christie! It was our first time leaving them with a dog sitter and we couldn't have been more pleased. Christie made sure they were safe and happy at all times. The dogs truly had a vacation too, spending time at the beach, dog park, and hiking! Christie immediately called us when one of our dogs had a minor health issue and she handled the situation very professionally and in a caring way. Our dogs have some unique health needs and Christie was able to accommodate them well. We absolutely loved the regular pictures and videos Christie sent! It was obvious Christie loved the dogs and the dogs loved her. We would definitely use Christie to take care of our dogs again.

My pup thoroughly enjoyed his stay with Christie. Her videos and texts regarding updates of my puppy were a great bonus. Thanks a bunch Christie. I would definitely book Specter's stay with her again :)
Christie gave Lola the best vacation ever! Lola went to the Ocean and a beautiful dog park. Christie sent pictures and videos every day. She is a very loving person with a great sense of humor and we wholly trusted her the first time we met. I would highly recommend Christie and her dog family to all my friends!

Christie was wonderful and easy to work with. My dog had a great time hanging with her two dogs. It was great to know he was well taken care of under her care. Getting pictures was a bonus. I would highly recommend Christie to anyone in the Worcester area.

Our pup was happy and tired! They did a fantastic job taking care of him and accommodating his energy and "charm".
We are very happy with Christie's care for our 2 dogs! While we were away we received several messages and photos from her to let us know how they were doing. Our dogs came home tired and happy!
