About Christine

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
You had me at WOOF!

Playful, caring, patient, energetic & trustworthy doggie lovers providing exceptional care in our home for your precious pups! The Radagasts of the pup world! Superior tummy rubs are given always! We offer puppydoo daycare extraordinaire as well! A rumpus of activity with lots of love & attention!
Experienced with tea cups to mastiffs, energetic puppies to those graying companions that may need their own space, our home is a welcoming retreat while you are away! We don't leave our pup guests!! They have our full affection & attention 24/7 during their stay!
Our resident hosts, Gizmo & Tucker love introducing our quests to the large fenced-in yard that provides ample romping-n-fetching, playtime galore (summertime we open the puppy pool) or a pleasant nap on the covered patio. Inside are cozy nooks & comfy couches to just cuddle up & lots of space to run & play when the weather gets cold! We make every attempt to indulge in special requests as our goal is an anxiety free stay for you & your pup! We want you back! "A house is not a home without a dog." Words we live by!

Why I love dog sitting
I have been owned by a pup all of my life! They bring so much love & joy to our lives, so I can think of no better way to spend everyday.

About my yard
A large, level, fenced in yard with a locked gate so no unwanted entries or exits! Plenty of room to run, play & explore! A large patio, deck area to hang out in the shade or take a nap!

What Christine would like to know about your dog
Temperament, activity level, routines, eating habits & special dietary requirements, favorite toys & games, potty training, sleeping preferences, magical little quirks & special requests which we will always try to accommodate!

Boston had a wonderful stay with Christine. She is so loving with the dogs and very accommodating with scheduling. I highly recommend her!
We couldn't have asked for a better place for our loving puppy Marshall to stay other than with Christine! Marshall has really bad separation anxiety and of course that makes me upset leaving him. However, Christine welcomed Marshall at the visit with love and open arms making Marshall just adore her. Booking and scheduling with her was super easy and she answered any questions I had very quickly. Dropping him off was very hard, since we were leaving him for the first time. She assured me he was going to be fine and sure enough he loved his stay!!! She sent photos and updates of his stay everyday. Christine is the first person I will ask from now on to watch our puppy. She surely put my mind at ease and loved Marshall just as much as we do! Thanks Christine for all you did!

Christine is an amazing person and our Casey loves to visit and spend time with her and all of the pups. Christine's availability is appreciated and she is so good with our dog. We've never worried and know Casey is getting well taken care of even if it's just a few hours or several days.

We just had our first over night stay with Christine! Christine was wonderful with providing us updates and took fabulous pictures as well. We could tell Brooks was in good hands and will definitely be using her again. Thanks so much!
Snuggles was so excited to stay there again, she ran immediately to the door! Christine is such a wonderful, thoughtful caregiver and loves watching dogs. The pictures are the best, dogs always having a great time! 5Pawsome for sure!
My dog had a ball with Christine and her dogs. He can't wait to go back!

And when turn onto their syreet our dogs are so excited and this was after one vacay! We feel very secure and certain that our dogs are in the best place. We thank them.

This was our 8 year old dog's first stay away from home in the 2.5 years we've had her. She has some separation anxiety and we weren't sure how she'd do for a whole week. Well, we had no need to worry. Christine was wonderful with her! After our initial meet and greet, I knew our dog was in good hands. Christine was very accommodating so that our dog would feel comfortable day and night. She sent us a lot of great photos and updates, which my kids loved and was reassuring to me. It was obvious our dog was well taken care of and happy. We will definitely use Christine again!

Snuggles totally enjoyed her visit with Christine! She wasn't in a hurry to leave when I came to get here. Christine was very attentive, pictures were great, a few were funny. Christine is very passionate in watching dogs & makes the dogs very comfortable in her home. Five Paws Plus for sure!

This was our first time leaving our six month old puppy with anyone other than family. Christine made the process so easy for us. She sent me lots of picture and updates so I had peace of mind that Buca was ok. Buca had a ton of fun and came home completely exhausted from non-stop playing. We will definitely use Christine again!

Christine clearly loves dogs. She quickly learned Layla's personality and showed such love toward her. The pictures she took were wonderful; in fact she could have a second career as a dog photographer. Such cute texts to us too. It was Layla's birthday the day after we picked her up, and inside our bag was a surprise birthday toy along with a second goodbye gift. We (and Layla) look forward to boarding with her again. Her 2 calm dogs Gizmo and Tucker were wonderful too.

Christine is a true dog lover and gets to know each dog and their individual characteristics. We really appreciated her daily contact and pictures.
Fabulous host, as always. My dogs hate to leave.
Charlie has stayed with Christine at lease 5 times and he loves her. He gets so excited when we get to her house and runs right in. Definitely his home away from home.
I took my dog to Christine when I went away for a long weekend. This was the first time she stayed with anyone other than family, but Christine treated her like family! I received tons of pictures while I was away which was so important to me. She did everything in her power to make sure that my dog had a great time after a past horrific experience with dogs. I knew she was well loved while I was away. I would choose Christine again anytime I go away!

He loves it here! Every time we drop off he runs up the steps, can't wait to get in the house.
Christine was great with our dog Molly. She has a golden so our golden fit right in. You can tell she loves her dogs by the way her yard and house is set up. She sent soooo many pictures of Molly having a great time. She hadn't been around too many dogs since she isn't quite a year old yet and this was a great way for her to socialize with all sizes and ages. Christine even has a pool for the hot days for her vacationers. Molly will be going back since we feel quite comfortable with Christine.

great to work with
One word: fantastic. My dogs love staying with her and I love knowing how happy they are.
In a word, FANTASTIC! Our dog Charlie had such a great time. He was so well taken care of and we were so comfortable having him stay with Christine. She kept in touch with pictures and texts on our vacation and it was great to see how much fun Charlie was having. We are so happy to find Christine and he will definitely be staying with her again.

Christine is a saint! She took the best care of PJ, sent me lots of pics of him running around her big back yard with the other dogs. I would not hesitate for a moment to book with her again!
Excellent!!! Chris could not have taken better care of our 3 babies!! One of our dogs is a senior that requires extra care, Chris went above and beyond to keep her comfortable and really kept an extra eye on her during their stay.
She also kept me updated daily and provided pictures which allowed me to relax and enjoy my own vacation.
Our Dogs were happy and so comfortable in Chris' home. She is a true Dog Lover who goes the extra step to make sure both dogs and owners are happy!
We are so happy to have found her and will use her services again.

What a great place for our dog. We've kenneled him in the past but never felt good about it. Our dog is very social with dogs and people. When staying with Christine, he was able to get lots of interaction with dogs and people. He was happy to be able to spend time in her large fenced in yard as well as indoors. He came home tired and happy from having so much fun during his stay.

Christine was wonderful. She is truly a dog lover and took tremendous care of my dogs. She kept me updated, sent photos and provided assurance that all was well so that I could relax and enjoy the time away. I've already booked their next stay and expect to have her be a part of my dog's lives for a long while. So happy we found her!

I think he had a better vaca than we did. Lots of pictures!! He was treated as one of the family and took full advantage of that. We will be back.
