About John and Christina

Hi, we're Christina and John. We live in a single family home near the University of St. Thomas and the Mississippi River, conveniently located just 6 miles or 15 minutes from the MSP International airport.

In 2012 we lost our 16 year old Toy Poodle “Teddy” due to health complications. He joined his friend, “Frankie” our Golden Retriever who we lost in 2010. We will love and miss them both forever.
What this means for you...we will be able to give our undivided attention to your dog while staying with us! We are not yet ready to have another dog of our own and this works perfectly for us.

Just a few other important things to know:
• We only take care of one dog at a time (unless the dogs are coming from the same home).
• We are a professional couple and both work full-time outside the home. We're away about 9 hours/day M-F (includes commute time).
• Available most holidays.

Please take a look at our photos, we included some pictures of dogs we've taken care of.


Thank you for considering us!
Christina and John

John and Christina were phenomenal! It was evident to me when we first met that they love dogs and their priority is the pet's wellbeing. My dog can be a little shy sometimes, but they gave her enough room and time to warm up to them and by the end be a little shy sometimes, but they gave her enough room and time to warm up to them and by the end of our first visit, Donatella was totally comfortable in Christina's arms. By then, I knew I had found the perfect match for Donatella! I definitely recommend them!

Christina & John were great. We have a feisty little terrier and didn't want to board him. We found them and their specialty with small dogs. We did a meet and greet and we knew that they would take great care of Cooper. He had a great time and did a meet and greet and we knew that they would take great care of Cooper. He had a great time and they made leaving him pleasant and easy! Thank you so much!

This was our dog Moose's first time staying with John and Christina and we will definitely be sending him back in the future! Moose came home happy, calm, and did not appear anxious as he has sometimes in the past. Moose also has a difficult time calm, and did not appear anxious as he has sometimes in the past. Moose also has a difficult time eating when my husband and I are away but after one day with Christina and John we were updated that he was eating - a sure sign that he was feeling comfortable and safe! We received daily pictures/videos and John and Christina were flexible with pick up/drop off.
