About Christina

New Guests: Unfortunately, at this time I am not accepting new guests. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Repeat Guests: Please reach out to me if my calendar is blocked off :)


I've been rescuing and fostering dogs for about 6 years, so the household is use to having a guest on a regular basis. It also means I have experience with lots of different breeds (mastiffs, chihuahuas, terriers, labs, pitbulls, bulldogs, yorkies ... literally, all breeds!) and are use to catering to specific doggie needs.

All dogs are walked on a daily basis and enjoy playdates at work, at the park, and beach. I'm close to parks, the beach, and have a secure large backyard for lots of off leash play.

My schedules work in a way that the dogs are never left alone for more than a 4-5 hour stretch at a time. Or if your dog is up for a special date, he/she can come to work with me!

I welcome big dogs, seniors, and puppies!

Way overdue review but we love Christina! Especially when she takes Simba to work! Thank you for watching him!
Hank loves it at Christina's! He can't wait and once we're in her front yard, he's off to the toy bin to start playing. We trust her with our energetic little one. She sends us daily pictures and updates with his new buddies. She's easy to communicate with. :)

Christina was great as always!! The dogs had a blast and slept for days after picking them up. Thanks, Christina!
We couldn't ask for more with Christina! We know how much work our happy & hyper 8 mo old vizsla takes and Christina kept her busy the whole 6 days we were gone. Never needed to worry that she was stuck in a crate or without attention. We had lots of updates & photos keeping us smiling. Christina was responsive & flexible with pick up and drop off. We can't say enough good things!!

As always, Christina took fantastic care of my dogs. They require a lot and she takes everything seriously. I highly recommend her.
This was the first time leaving my furry babies with anyone other than family & I did so with all the confidence in the world after our meet & greet. Christina took great care of them like they were her own & every day I received a text & pic. They came home happy & I am totally grateful to her for that. Recommend her highly. She was flexible & accommodating even when I had traffic issues that delayed my pickup.

Christina sent us pics of our little Hank while we were away for 17 days. He had a great time with the other dogs. His leash and house manners improved. Would definitely use Christina again if we need to board Hank.
Christina was great with Hunter and she kept us up to date on a daily basis..... I think we made the right choice by trusting her with our furry friend.
Christina was amazing as always and the dogs loved every minute of their 3-day stay!
Christina was very friendly and very easy to work with! Our dog LOVED staying with her and she constantly kept us updated so we never had any worries about how our dog was doing. I would definitely recommend her to any dog owner!
Christina was extremely helpful and friendly. We did a meet and greet initially and I knew that she (AND Duke!) were the ones for us. She's got ample space in her house/yard and she's got a lot of experience with dogs. My two girls can be a little bit shy, but Christina still was able to give them great care and they came back safe and sound.

We can't wait to see Christina again!

I was very comfortable leaving my little Cesar with Christina for a whole week. After paying a visit to her home, I knew she would take good care of him. I just recommended her to a friend of mine who is just as antsy about leaving her dog as I was! Thanks again, Christina.

My young dog Inky has separation anxiety that we're working on, and Christina's relaxed way with dogs really helped. She's come back from her stay peaceful and happy, and less alarmed by bigger dogs. Wonderful!
Christina is great! We highly recommend her.
Another great experienced for Hank and Indiana. I can't recommend Christina enough.
We are new to CA and we had to leave our dogs for 2 weeks. Christina was awesome! She kept us updated with texts and pictures and I think our dogs really enjoyed their time at her house. I will definitely be using her again.
Christina was a perfect host for Pastis. We received each day a sms with picture. We knew Pastis was happy in her home. He also had a really great time with her dog. I won't hesitate to ask Christina help for future vacations. Thanks!!!
My first time leaving Simba for 10 days so I was a bit worried especially with his hotspots.
Our first time using Christina and she was wonderful to work with and easy to communicate with via texting.
Her place was clean and has a huge and lovely backyard for the doggies.
It was awesome of her to take Simba to work with her. I'm sure he was a great supervisor. hahaha
There was a little mishap with his Kong collar and she went to get him a new one. I thought that was so sweet and professional of Christina to do that. I definitely recommend Christina. Thank you again for taking great care of Simba.

Christina is the best. When we leave our dog in her care, we know he will be happy and safe. I love her daily texts with pictures.
Christina is great! She rescued us!
Christina is wonderful!
Christina is AWESOME! She has backyard and front yard, if my baby could talk I think he'd say her place is the happiest place on earth for dog of course =p Highly recommend her
I am so glad that DogVacay introduced us to Christina. We left for a weeklong trip and didn't want to leave our high energy dog in a kennel at a boarding facility. From the moment we met Christina, we could tell she has taken care of all kinds of dogs and that she would be a great sitter for Emmie. Throughout the week, Christina sent us pictures of their adventures--from play dates to walks in the park. She was also very flexible and understanding when traffic kept us from coming home on time. We will definitely take Emmie to Christina again!

Christina was great as always. Really flexible with drop off and pick up. She was more than willing to deal with some unique circumstances.
Christina is always amazing with Molly. We wouldn't leave her with anyone else! Great updates and pics and molly always comes back happy and pooped! :)
Extremely Satisfied! I highly recommend Christina to those visiting attractions in the Anaheim area. Convenient location only 15 minutes from Disney. Our miniature dachshund was well taken care of and we were provided with photos and updates periodically through the day which helped put us at ease. Will undoubtedly be a return customer.

Christina was amazing. Rocky is a senior dog and required special food and lots of medication. We were gone over Thanksgiving and didn't want to leave him at vets in a cage for that long period of time. Rocky bonded immediately with Christina. She texted picture updates twice a day and we loved seeing her pictures of Rocky just hanging out around her house.
It was comforting to know he was in good hands in a loving home.

We will definitely be coming back to Christina on our next endeavor.

Christina was great again. My dogs have stayed with her multiple times now and each time has been great. This was a last minute request that just happened to work out. I highly recommend her.
Another great stay with Christina! Thanks again!
Molly loves going to Christina's! She gets lots of love, play and affection. Molly wears an activity tracker on her collar, like a pedometer, and we're always impressed with how much activity she gets with Christina! Molly definitely needs it! I love that Christina takes Molly to work with her and that she makes sure Molly has play time with other dogs, as well. Christina texts me daily and sends cute/funny pics of Molly. I'd recommend Christina to anyone looking for a great dog-sitter!

Christina did such an amazing job taking care of my dog Sadie while I was away for a wedding. Sadie came back tuckered out after a great weekend outside and getting to play with all her new friends she met at Christina's. We loved our time with her and can't wait for the next time we get to have another sleepover!

My boys had another great stay with Christina. She is easy to coordinate drop off and pick up times.
We loved Christina. This was the first time my puppy, Sadie, had been away from home and she did great with Christina. I was sent photos and videos and updates which I loved. We are looking forward to booking with her again.
My dogs have stayed with Christina a few times now and every time has been a great experience. She is very flexible in terms of drop off and pick up and most importantly my dogs enjoy their vacation. I would highly recommend her.
christina is the ideal person for us to leave our dog when we are away. she is clearly very knowledgeable and experienced with dogs, as well as being very sweet. we left our foster dog here while on our honeymoon, and again when out of town on our brother's wedding - and she had the papers with our dog's food and schedule handy from the first time, careful to check if anything had changed. i can tell by our dog's reaction that she is happy to stay with christina and i'm so relieved to find someone that i can rely on. thank christina!

Another vacay for my 2 dogs with Christina and Stu and they were great hosts once again. They are always so flexible on the drop off and pick up and on this stay, Christinca went above and beyond when one of my dogs had some digestion issues. We feel really comfortable leaving our dogs with them.

Christina was amazing as always. Our 2 dogs love spending time at her home and are always exhausted once we get home! We will use her again and recommend her to our friends.
From the beginning Christina was very responsive to my questions, we met prior to our dogs stay, her house has a big grassy backyard and the dogs are free in her house, not in a kennel which is what I wanted. Christina has taken very good care of our dogs for 2 weeks, texting us updates and photos regularly which gave us peace of mind, therefore we could truly enjoy our vacation. I will use Christina's service again for sure.

Christina is wonderful! Highly recommended.
Christina was a great host to our dogs. Her house and yard are well set up for the dogs with plenty of space. She sent us a few updates and pics during the stay and that was nice. Drop off and pick up was extremely easy and hassle free and the dogs seemed to have enjoy their stay. We are very happy with the entire experience. Thanks Christina and Stu.

Christina was great again and made everything really easy. My dogs enjoyed their time.
Christina was awesome with our two dogs. She sent us daily pictures and updates, which put our nerves at ease while being out of town. Due to traffic, our trip was twice as long as expected coming home and she was totally cool about us picking the dogs up late. The dogs absolutely loved their stay and knocked out cold right when they got home. We will be using her again soon. Thanks again!

We really loved having Christina watch our dog! She was quick to respond when we made the reservation. When we took our dog to the drop off she made sure she showed me all around her house/yard so I knew where my little guy would be hanging out! She has a huge yard that our dog really enjoyed! She sent daily updates and pictures which I also loved! I highly recommend her!

Another great stay @ Mark & Gina's!
Turbo has had several great stays with Christina and Stu. As soon as he's behind their white picket fence, he's behaves like he never left... always a good sign they take excellent care of him while I'm away. We'll continue to use them - highly recommended!

Christina is great! Her house is perfect for our dog. Highly recommended!
I was a little hesitant at first, but Christina made me feel really comfortable and made the entire process simple. I would definitely recommend her.
Christina was great! She was very accommodating when our plans changed and our dog needed to stay longer. I think our dog enjoyed his stay too! He needed lots of rest after all the fun he had playing with her and Duke. We will definitely take our boy back.

This is the second time our dog has stayed with Christina and he has absolutely loved each time. When we dropped him off the second time, he left us as soon as he got out of the car to run inside the house to say hi and get his stay started...needless to say, he is comfortable and loves it there. Unlike other boarding places used in the past, our dog gets personal attention and love when he stays with Christina. I never worry about him when he's there since I feel that he is treated the same way we treat him at home. He gets cuddles and gets to play inside the house and out in the yard, with other dogs too. Daily texts and emails give updates and pictures of our dog playing and cuddling, looking happy and tired from playing in each one. I will definitely have him stay there again and would recommend Christina to anyone looking for someone to watch their dog when they're away.

Christina and Stu were great hosts. I loved the daily updates and photos showing all the pups having a great time. Highly recommend!
Christina was AMAZING. I was very nervous about leaving Gibbs for the first time...and left lots of instructions and notes. Christina was very nice and understanding. She sent me emails and pictures throughout Gibbs' stay and always responded quickly if I asked about him. Gibbs had a great time. He got to go to work with her and had lots of play time with other dogs, which he thrives on. He slept in the car the entire way home, ate dinner, then back to sleep. AND he smelled great when I picked him up....she gave him a bath, which is quite an undertaking. I know that if/when I have trips in the future, Gibbs will be loved and cared for with Christina....and I would recommend her to anyone who needs to be away from home and wants a loving place for their furry friend.

Christina and Stu were awesome pet-sitters! Easy to work with, very professional and set my mind at ease that Turbo was in good hands while we were away. Christina provided daily updates with great pics! Highly recommended and will gladly use their services again.

Another awesome visit for the pooches, coming home smelling nice and clean, which I know they weren't earlier in the stay by the photos ! They always have a great time playing with Christina's dogs and come home contented and exhausted. Thanks Christina !!

When my dogs come back from several days away from home happy and serene I know they were being well taken care of. That was the experience we had with Christina and Stu. They are a responsible couple that truly cares about dogs. We got email, texts and photo updates often which allowed my husband and me to relax on our vacation. This was our first experience with DogVacay and it was a great one.

Christina was a very accomodating and caring host for my dog when I was out of town. She sent regular updates and a few great pictures. Her backyard is very open and my dog had a lot of grass to relax and play on. I would not hesitate to leverage her again the next time I am traveling.

Boo had another great stay with Christina. I will surely use her again!!!
Christina was great! She clearly loves dogs and has lots of experience caring for them and was very flexible with drop off and pick up times, which was convenient.

We have a very energetic dog so she even had a friend bring over another dog so they could play all day! He was clean and tired when we picked him up, a job well done in our book!

We will definitely be asking for Christina's help in the future and she is highly recommended.

We were a little bit nervous trying out DogVacay for the first time, but once we met Christina we were immediately put at ease. She clearly has tons of experience with all kinds of dogs, kept us in the loop with updates and pictures while we were gone, and delivered us a very happy (and tired!) puggle when we got home. We highly recommend Christina!

Christina and the who process was easy and great. I had a lot of confidence that our pooch would be in good hands for our 2 week trip. I would highly recommend Christina and will definitely use her in the future!!
Another great stay for Hamish and Heather with Christina, I got great pics from their play time and they have come home exhausted from all their yard play time with Christina's dogs and having great doggie dreams of their adventures . I never worry about leaving them here, I know they are well supervised. Thanks again Christina

I can't say enough good things about Christina, she sent two sets of photos of my two dogs having a pool party with her dogs (Christina was kind enough to bath them afterwards), they obviously had a great time as they are exhausted now, I will definitely be going back to Christina next time I need to go away, I know they will gets lots of TLC.

Christina provided a wonderful, safe, environment for my dog, Moki. He was obviously well taken care of by a home full of love for animals. She has knowledge of dogs and special skills with respect to dog behavior and training. Moki came home happy and calm. This was my first experience with DogVacay as opposed to enlisting a boarding kennel -- terrific.
