About Christi

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello, I'm Christi, your pets Furry GodMother : )

(Please read our complete profile and do not make a reservation request before receiving a custom quote. Thanks!!)

Our home is smoke-free, has a fenced in back yard that backs up to green space with lots of walking trails along the creek and is located on a quiet cul-de-sac.

My husband works from home and and I am a stay at home mom so we're at home more than most families. Our time together as a family is very important to us and we would love to invite your pet to be a part of our family...even if it's only for a day or two. We live in BridgeMill in Canton but we have families from all over the Metro Atlanta area bring their dogs to share our home with us.

Our rates *begin* at $30 per night/per dog (rates are based on size) and we provide custom quotes for all of our guests before accepting any reservations. Drop-Off and Pick-Up is by appointment only.

Your dog will receive at least 2 - 3 walks per day (weather permitting) and will have plenty of supervised play time in the back yard. We are also fully insured, prepared to meet any special dietary needs as well as administering any needed medications/injections.

To insure the best experience possible, we are only able to accept dogs that are FULLY house trained (Carpet cleaning fee of $75 will apply otherwise) and he or she must play well with others.


Puppies as well as dogs that have not been spayed or neutered will be a higher rate. Please feel free to contact us with any questions and/or to schedule a Meet & Greet.

Since this is our home and have children, we do require scheduled appointments for dropping off and picking up your pup. Appointments are based on our schedule and will be made between 9 am and 6 and we ask that you please be prompt. For arrival and departure times that fall outside of that time frame, coming the night before or picking up the morning after is usually the best option.

It is our greatest desire to provide you with peace of mind while you are away and we'll be sure to send you regular updates. We'll also send you lots of pictures and you are welcome to call and check in as often as you like.

Thank you for considering us to host your pet while you are away and we look forward to meeting you both soon!

Thanks and hope to see uu soon!!

Christi is great! I've had some unusual circumstances and Christi was very flexible to accomodate me. My dogs loved it there and it was such a relief to know they are having such a great time there and are loved, rather than being in a boarding facility. Thanks Christy and family (especially Duke)!!

Great experience. Pleasent, professional, personal.
Awesome Awesome. Christi never disappoints. She goes over and beyond the call of duty. Kennedy and Dakota come back in great shape which means they felt SAFE and WARM. Thanks so much Christi! Kristi
Christi and her family hosted Kimba in a wonderful home full of love. She sent a picture of Kimba every day she was hosted there and she helped train her on doggie walks. I would definitely let Christi board Kimba in the future.

Very personal approach. Harlie loved it and will definitely return next time we are out of town. She loves your Dog like her own!!!
Christie was wonderful! Her dog Butch and her 2 young boys enjoyed my little babies which created a comforting environment all. I especially liked the fact that she has a process for introducing dogs into her home so that everyone will see if all will work out. Lovely. We will return!

Christi and her family were great! It was very nice knowing that my dog was being so well cared for while I was away. I would highly recommend Christi!
OMG ! our dog Buddy had a great time at the Christi
household, he loved playing with their dogs in the video she sent and had fun time with her kids. He looked so happy in all the pictures she sent. We would love to have Christi as our dogvacay person forever.Thank you so much Christi:)

Christi and her family were fantastic to our Boston Terrier, Sachi! She had such a good time and Christi up-dated me with pictures daily. My in-laws usually keep Sachi when we are out of town, but this time they were not available. I'm always nervous leaving her and was not leaving her at a kennel. The beauty of this kind of situation is that they treated her like their own and she was able to stay on her schedule. I would highly recommend Christi and made a friend as well. I will definitely call on her again and know that Sachi will be in great hands!

This was our first time ever using a pet sitter or anything like dogvacay.com and we had a very good experience! Christi sent us pictures every day and gave us updates on Apollo. She was professional and our Apollo connected with her immediately (which is very rare for him seeing how he is a shy dog.) We will definitely be using Christi again and will recommend her to our dog loving friends!

I am so happy we found Christi to watch our two dogs Rocker and Molly while we went on vacation for a week. They fit right in with the family and we got pictures and updates from Christi daily. We enjoyed our vacation so much more knowing they were happy and well cared for. Will definately use Christi again!

Christi and her family were so loving and cared for our dogs as if they were theirs. We received pictures and updates regularly. Christi made sure the dogs were not scared during the holiday fireworks. She even cried when we picked the dogs up! Loved the way she truly cares for our dogs!

Christi, and family provided a safe, and loving home for our Dog. She sent pictures often. It was obvious Cupcake felt at home, and loved.
We returned late, and Christi was kind enough to meet us at the entrance of Her Sub. We highly recommend Her. Thanks Christi Cupcake misses You Guy's.

Mrs. Christi was a wonderful babysitter for our Willow! I felt so at ease while out of town getting regular updates and pictures of our sweet girl. Her family and her two dogs made Willow feel so welcomed and she had a great time staying with them! I am so thankful. Mrs. Christi was an extremely better alternative than any kennel boarding, and I will be sure to use her again in the future! We are so appreciative! Thanks again!

Thanks again to Christi and her family for amazing services! Our dog Chloe is a HUGE part of our family, and it is quite sad when we have to leave her, but knowing she is in the hands of Christi and her family make it so much easier. If she cant be with our family, Christi's is the next best thing. Christi always keeps us updated on Chloe's fun filled days via text messages and pictures and we LOVE it!

As always Christi and her family take good care of our dog, this time for over a week. We had to change our plans on our return home and she was very flexible and understanding. Our dog comes home looking good and relaxed. We are kept up to date on his care via emails and pictures. Thank you Christi and Kelly for taking care of our big boy we appreciate it very much.

As always Christi and her family took good care of my labrador retriever. She sends me daily updates and pictures of him. They are a loving family that loves dogs and Ray comes home relaxed and happy, Christi's sons participate in the care and even sleep with my dog occasionally which is a real treat for him since he loves attention from humans. Thank you Christi and family. Ray will be returning to her home very soon for another dog vacay!

Christi is fantastic!! I had a business trip to take that would require me to be gone for a week. Because I work out of my home, Romulus and I had never spent more than ~6 hours apart since he was ~3 months old (he's now 2 years and 4 months old). Also, he has food allergies and a sensitive stomach, making it very important that he does not eat anything that I do not specifically provide or say he can have. He’s about 110 pounds, so I needed someone who could manage a dog that size who often likes to pull when being walked. So, I definitely had “new mom” syndrome [nobody is good enough to take care of my baby] when looking for someone to watch him while I was away. I had met with Christi about 9 months before I needed to use her services. When I finally did need her, she still remembered me and Romulus. She had a plan, I felt comfortable with, for keeping Romulus from eating things he could not have. She takes into account the personalities of the dogs and how they will behave with others she has before accepting to sit for them. I received pictures and an update daily, while I was gone. I clearly had nothing to worry about. I could see from the pictures & videos, he was thoroughly enjoying himself. After seeing the pictures, I hoped he wouldn’t be too disappointed about having to come back home with me, when I got back. His first day back home, he fell asleep within ~15 minutes of arriving home and has been sleeping for nearly 7 hours straight, so far. My trip started a little rocky, with cancelled flights, plane changes, gate changes, etc. But it was such a comfort to know Romulus was in such good hands. It was one less thing to worry about during my trip. I will definitely be using Christi again. She gives me great peace of mind when I have to leave my baby.

Kona , our. 4-year old Boxer, just finished her second visit with Christi's family. She loves her visits there, and I have no worries when I leave her in Christi's home. She is petted and loved just as much as she is at home, and I couldn't be happier! On this last visit, Christi sent us a picture of Kona in front of a Christmas tree which was framed with her name and date. We will print and keep this Christmas picture--thanks, Christi!

Christi has got to be the best dog sitter ever. Our dog Marley absolutely loves going to her house. Christi is very helpful with our lack of planning and is able to accommodate our last minute requests. I will continue to contact her for all of our boarding!

I highly recommend Christi, she is my first host with Dogvacay and she made it a wonderful experience. I received many photos and updates on how my pup was doing. Christi and her family took excellent care of my Bella. Thanks again Christi! You're the best!

Christi was a great host! She provided the best for Dexter, our miniature schnauzer, and ensured that he was taken care of to the fullest extent. We received pictures of Dexter continuously in order to update us on how he was doing. Whenever we needed to contact Christi, she was there with an immediate response in order to answer any question we may have had. We definitely plan on using Christi again when we're out of town!

I was a little skeptical leaving Brodey with a stranger but was in kind of a bind. After meeting Christi I knew he was in excellent hands! She is so sweet and absolutely knows what she's doing. She even sent me a picture of him the night we were away. Brodey came back just as happy as ever :) We will definitely be using Christi again if we ever need a sitter. Thanks, Christi!

An absolutely wonderful experience for my beagle, Radar! Christi and her family are delightful, and took great care of my pup while I was out of town this weekend. I'm getting ready to book with them for my next out-of-town trip. My boy is out cold tonight, so I'm sure he enjoyed himself! Thanks a million!

This was the first time Isis & Wilson stayed away from home overnight. I was pleased with the care they received & environment they were kept in. We will definitely use Christi again. Thank you!
This was my first experience with a host on dogvacay and Christi and her family provided the best possible experience. From the first email to Christi... to dropping off my Rat Terrier ( Chi Chi).
I felt so at ease and was so comfortable leaving Chi Chi with her for six nights. I couldn't have asked for better communication throughout the entire vacation. During our vacation, Christi sent photo updates and little text messages about how Chi was doing. This made my vacation much more enjoyable. I recommend Christi to anybody who loves their dog as much as I do.....Chi and I went to Christi's house as strangers and when I picked Chi up we left feeling like family.

Thank you Christi! My dog had the best time with you and your family. You took excellent care of him and kept me smiling the entire time he was with you by sending pictures of him. The entire experience was fabulous!
This was my first experience with Christi and her family, and I will have to plan trips around her availability in the future! She is very organized, and it shows with her system of introducing the dogs, welcoming the dogs upon arrival, and her excellent communication all along the way. It was great to see the pictures, and we could tell our dog had made himself at home. I think our dog enjoyed his stay as much as we enjoyed our trip!

I truly can't say enough great things about my dog's Vacay experience with Christi and her family.....but I'll try!! I have 2 dogs, and of course, they are part of our family. We would love to take them with us on our week long vacation, but since it's not possible, we have reserved Christi, as we ALWAYS do! How nice it is to NEVER worry about our furry babies! While we're gone, Christi and her family treat our 2 dogs as their own....sending us pictures while we're away, and giving us updates. I'm not sure if she can do this with all dogs, but our 2 get to bunk with her children; they are walked everyday; she has a nice big fenced backyard for them to have some free time, and she helped us out tremendously by bringing Nicky and Nina back to our house for us! Our dogs got to have a vacation, too! No cages to sleep in by themselves, no set playtime! Just a truly wonderful experience if you're looking for a place to leave your four-legged children!!

We usually take our dog, Chloe with us if we go out of town, but this time we could not and I'm very thankful to have found Christi! She made me feel very comfortable with leaving Chloe with her. Knowing that we were leaving her with another family was very comforting. I was pretty much in contact with Christi everyday day with emails, pictures, and videos. She was very attentive to not only Chloe but the rest our family too. I had to add an extra day at the last minute and she was very accomodating. Will definitely use her again!

Love, love, love Christi (and her family). Had never left my girls at a kennel or anywhere else before, but she made me feel very secure about this and sent lots of pictures to make me feel at ease! Great pictures, too! Thanks, Christi and her family~
We will definitely be coming back....well, at least Molly and Maggie will be!

We are so very pleased with the love and care Molly received from Christi, Kelly and the children. She became a part of their family and I know that she misses them. Molly will be happy to visit again when we take our next vacation.

We missed Molly and were so surprised at the many pictures and updates we received while we were away.

This is such an easy process!! And Bella loves staying with Christi and her family. They spoil her rotten!! Many thx! The McCord's
Bella had a great time time! In fact, I don't think she was ready to come home. Thanks Christi for all you do!! The McCord's
Christi and her family are wonderful hosts for my chocolate lab who loves being around people and is very playful. She keeps us informed sending us lots pictures and telling me how he is doing. I really appreciate the care that she gives him and when my dog comes home he is relaxed and at ease which tells me that he has been taken care of. This is the second time that she has kept my dog and we will definitely leave him again with her. Thank you Christi!

I didn't know DogVacay existed until a few weeks ago. Mostly, if we couldn't take Jack, we just didn't go! Jack stayed with Christi and her family for 7 days. I know he was happy and well cared for because Christi sent pictures often. I liked it that Christi has children and her own dogs for Jack to play with. I would highly recommend Christi. She is easy to work with, keeps in touch, and sends great photos. We will definitely use her again.

Very satisfied, I will use Christi again. Friendly, easy to deal with and they love dogs
Christi and her family were great with our dogs. Thanks so much!
Christi and her family were wonderful with our dog, Max! She was great about communicating with us while we were gone and even sent awesome pictures of Max that we very much enjoyed! We will definitely use Christi again! She made Max feel like one of her family members and that meant alot to us. Thank you so much, Christi!!!

Christi's family took my Ridgeback in and loved her like she was their own! Emma had a wonderful time! We are definitely going back soon!
I will have to say I was nervous leaving one of my babies, never been away from us. Christi put my mind to rest. We meet before so she could see and the dogs could see her. She is very good with the dogs. She sent us pictures of them while we where gone and I knew I made the right decision to leave them with her. They look so happy and having fun. I highly recommend Christi. I will use her again.

I can just promise you that if you need to find a loving family that will give your dog the love and care that you give him or her every day, this is the Dog Vacay for you. Byron, my shepherd and service dog and I had a meet and greet with Christi and her family and it was love at first site.
Christi and her family opened their home to my shepherd, Byron, for a week and I never once had to worry if he was doing okay. Christi emailed me to let me know they had been going for walks, sent me a video of him playing, sent me pictures she had taken and told me that Byron was having a ball playing with her children and her dog. I felt very comfortable leaving him in such a wonderful environment. I will for sure call Christi every time I need a home away from home for Byron. I hope you will call for a meet and greet too. I would definitely give her a 5 star rating.

Christi and her family took great care of our dog. He was worn out when he got home. It is tough to wear out a lab but he got plenty of attention.
Christi and her family are just wonderful! I always feel so secure in knowing my 2 babies are in such great and experienced hands! I'll definitely keep bringing them to Christi.....their home away from home!
Christi and her family were great hosts! Christi sent me updates while I was away with pictures. Her boys are adorable and let my dog sleep with them. (My dog thinks she is a human). I was worried about leaving my dog for an extended period of time with people I did not know as she is very attached to and protective of me. But, she seemed to do fine. She probably got more exercise and play than she typically does with me during the week as Christi and her family are home more during the day. Would not hesitate to book with Christi again. Thank you!

Christi (and her family) were great! They took good care of our dog while we were away for 2 weeks. This was the first time using Dog Vacay as we boarded our dog at the Vet's office in the past. Never again! Our dog was much happier staying with his temporary family and adjusted well. Christi and her family took our dog in as their own and we felt comfortable knowing he was in such caring hands. We will definitely be contacting Christi in the future the next time we need to find our dog a place to stay. And he price is very reasonable to boot!

Thank you to Christi and her family for taking care of our big boy. We were in touch with Christi on various occasions during our vacation, checking in on him etc. She was available and communicative telling us how our dog was doing and she also sent us a number of pictures. I appreciated that she informed me on his eating habits during his stay since our dog sometimes has a nervous stomach. We were concerned about separation anxiety since our dog spends a lot of time with us but her whole family participated in creating a very welcoming place for our dog and he came back to us looking good and happy...also brushed! We will be coming back to Christi's. Thankyou!

Christi and her family were awesome. I loved that she would send an update and photo everyday. I am definitely going to ask her again to watch our dog.
Bella had a wonderful time! She was so excited when I went to pick her up. I wasn't worried at all and while we were gone received the most precious pics. Thanks again Christi! The McCord
Awesome experience for our dog, Daisy. She loved being with their dogs and the attention Christi's family gave her. Christi sent us updates and photos which gave us assurance that Daisy was in good hands! Will definitely recommend to friends and family.

This was our first time using DogVacay and we would definitely recommend it. What a wonderful experience for both us and our dog. Bella had a great time! She wasn't worried and shaking when we dropped her off or when we picked her up. We received pics and videos while she was staying which was so reassuring. Bella played and had a family to love on her, care for her, and take her for a walk. This was a much better option than knowing she would be in a pin and all alone. Thank you so much for making this an option we are already scheduling our next visit!

This's was our first try w Dogvacay and we were very pleased. Not in only being able to review and vett various options, but also because it led us to Christi whom took care of our boys like her own. As we were out of town, we were very happy to see how much she stayed in touch with us which helped us rest assured our "kids" we're happy, well cared for and in good hands. The best recommendation I can give is that we will use her again when the need for us arises to trust the care of our boys to another. Dogvacay works, plain and simple !

This was our dog's third stay with Christi and it was fantastic as always. If we have to go out of town Christi is our first choice, simple as that. She's the best!
I am so impressed with Christi and her family! It is so comforting knowing that Mookie our Golden Retriever is always so excited to get there and seems right at home. Having this option in such a warm and loving home makes me feel completely at ease about leaving him. Thank you!!

Christi and her family are amazing! I almost didn't post a review because I don't want her to get so popular that she is booked up all the time :) We have a 7 year old boxer and a 7 month old Mastiff. Christi and family took care of our babies over Thanksgiving for 5 days. Our dogs were very well taken care of. Our boxer, who will usually not eat when he is away from me, ate all of his meals :) What I love about Christi is that her whole family helps in every aspect of our dogs care. Her kids played with our dogs (they were very tired puppies), they wanted to sleep with them every night, and as a family they all took turns watching them. Our babies were never left alone, locked up, or neglected. I was very worried about leaving our dogs, especially the puppy, but after meeting Christi, all of my fears disappeared. We are going away again for Christmas and I know our dogs will have as much fun as we will. We love Christi and her family and would highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks Christi!!!!!!

Christi and her family are great! They'll be our first call when we need a place for our dogs.
Christi was a pleasure to deal with. Very friendly and outgoing. She sent us pictures and updates on our dog each day during our vacation. More importantly our dog had a great with Christi's family and their dog. After using Christi and Dogvacay we won't go back to using a kennel anymore. I would highly reccomend Christi to anyone looking for a good family to watch their dog.

Christi was brilliant! My dog, Ziza, was happy and tired from all the playing she had gotten to do when I picked her up! Christi is lovely and even took videos and photo's of Ziza playing with the other dogs to send me while I was out of town for the weekend, which really helped ease my mind as it was my first time using this kind of service. I will definitely do this again for my pup!!

I feel so blessed to have found Christi & DogVacay! Our 2 dogs are part of our family, so if we can't take them with us, we want them to be loved by a family just like us.....and that's what we found with the Hain family! Christi kept me updated with pictures and texts, answered ANY questions up front, so that while we were away, we not only didn't worry, but actually felt relief in knowing how great they were being taken care of! And of course, we loved hearing and seeing the "sleeping arrangements" of Nicky and Nina!! I will call Christi the very next time we take a trip! The Terrell's, including our Nicky and Nina, are so very thankful to Christi and her family!!

Christi was a good host for our dog. When we went to pick him up, he was wagging his tail and he was excited to see us. She sent us pictures while we were on vacation and kept us updated. I highly recommend Christi.
My Jack Russell Terrier, Nico, stayed with Christi and her family for 7 nights. They are the sweetest family and welcomed my dog into their home with open arms. They have 3 little boys that helped walk and play with Nico. He came home tired and happy! I highly recommend using Christi!
