About Chris

My dog, Squirt, and I both work from home (her official title is VP of Snuggles). My schedule is flexible, I can provide transportation, and puppy play breaks throughout the day keep me sane. I live within walking distance of Grant Bark Park so we like to get our exercise that way. Dogs are allowed on all the furniture, and of course they get to sleep on the bed!

The only downside to Chris is that my dog loves her too much! Grendel never wants to leave.
Chris and Squirt took wonderful care of Liam while I was away for a long weekend. Chris was super responsive and answered all my questions. I appreciated the daily photo/text updates. She really put my mind at ease while I was away. I'd definitely book with her again and recommend her to everyone!
Chris is great! Grendel seems to have had a blast playing with Squirt and the other pups. I also really appreciated the photographic proof of their fun that Chris sent over via text message.
Chris is excellent! We had a really bad experience with dogvacay the first time which made us very hesitant to try again but Chris came so highly reviewed that we thought we would roll the dice. We got daily updates and most of the time twice a day. Our dog loved her stay and played her little heart out. She loved the other doggies she stayed with and enjoyed basking in the sun on her balcony.

I will definitely be using her again and soon!!
This is the 4th time my dog, Potroast has stayed with Chris and Squirt and I just can't say enough nice things about them both! Chris loves on my pup like he's one of her own. Her sweet dog, Squirt is a great companion and definitely one of Potroast's best friends. I never worry about how Pots is doing when he's with Chris because I know she treats him with care and love, just like I do.
Chris is great! We are so happy we found her and little Squirt to watch our dog. Chris responded quickly, was open and flexible to a meet up in our local park. Our dog is timid with other dogs, but hit it off with Squirt. Our drop off and pick up went smoothly and Chris sent us pictures of our dog through out the day, which made me happy! Thanks again for such a great service, it met our dog's needs and our schedule.
Chris B. was great! I got lots of sweet photos of my pup while I was away.
Chris is wonderful! She treats my dog like he's one of her own. In fact, she let's my dog do things her own pup doesn't get to do, like getting a special spot on the kitchen counter to eat his dinner! She sends lots of text updates with photos and is extremely flexible with her dop off/ pick up schedule. She's also just a super sweet person.
We left our little Kelley with Chris over the 4th of July holiday. Kelley had a wonderful time playing with Chris's pup Squirt and a couple of other dogs that were also staying there this weekend. We felt very comfortable with Chris as she is a total dog lover and takes wonderful care of the dogs! We really appreciated the picture updates she sent which put us at ease seeing Kelley having such a fun time with all the other puppies. Chris has a totally puppy-proofed apartment and lives in a great area with easy access to several parks. We had a great experience and will definitely use Chris again in the future! Thank you for taking such good care of our girl for us!!
The only reason I hesitated to write a review - was that we want to keep Chris and Squirt all to ourselves because they are so fantastic!!

We left for a week long vacation and wanted to ensure our energetic puppy Charlie had a good place to stay. Chris was responsive from our very first contact and came over with her cute dog Squirt to meet Charlie.

Throughout the week Chris sent pictures of Charlie playing with the other DogVacay visitors she had, which put us at ease seeing how much fun he was having and gave us a good laugh each time (Chris would narrate the photos!).

We will definitely send Charlie to stay with Chris in the future!
Chris and Scout are wonderful! She graciously accommodated my last minute request, and Toby came home happy and tired from a day of fun. Would highly recommend her!
It was my first time leaving my dogs while I went away for the long weekend, so I was a little nervous, but I had no reason to be! Chris was awesome. She took wonderful care of my two dogs, Wednesday and Batman. She sent several pictures and updates several times a day to let me know how they were doing. When I got them back I could tell they were well cared for. I think they had a lot of fun with her dog, Squirt. I definitely plan to ask Chris to watch my dogs again next time I need to go away!
We decided to go out of town last minute and saw that Chris was available. Overall, I found Chris very responsive and easy to work with. She is very laid back and clearly loves dogs. I would definitely use her services again! Note: her dog Squirt is really cute too.
Chris is a very accommodating host. She didn't mind my last minute request to drop Jax off at 7am. As for Jax, he enjoyed sunbathing on her balcony and playing with Squirt (she's very cute)!
Chris is very sweet and kind. She sent me numerous updates and photos. I can't wait to leave Franklin with her again.
Jack had a lovely time hanging out with Chris and Squirt while I was out of town this weekend. I got lots of cute photos of the dogs cuddling over the weekend!
Chris was great! She responded promptly to my messages, and was very accommodating to my odd pick up time. I also appreciated that she sent me pictures of my dog periodically. Overall a great weekend stay for my dog, and I would definitely recommend her to anyone!
