About Cristina

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

Do you work during the day and feel bad leaving your dog locked up? I am a student and I am currently looking to make some extra cash taking care of your loved companion.

I live next to Kennedy park (coconut grove) and I have one dog, Dexter. He is a rescue from New Orleans and he loves to play. I take him every morning to the field in front of Matheson Hammock & to Kennedy Park (2x) a day along with multiple walks throughout the day. He gets along great with other dogs and is very loving!

I would love to host your four legged friend (: Activities may include dog beach trips, local dog park visits, & plenty of cuddles, and afternoon lounging in the sun or on the couch. At the end of their stay they will get a complimentary bath.

**Prices increase during Holidays & long weekends**

** I charge an extra $5 for puppies**

THE BEST!! Clooney had the best time and we had a great time. Impossible to have hired someone as good and dedicated as Cristina. THE BEST!!
Cristina is one of the best things that have happened to Jimmy! Every time I have late classes or a trip,I leave at ease knowing Jimmy is having a blast with Cristina. She keeps me constantly posted with everything Jimmy is doing and sends me cute pictures of him. I would recommend Cristina to anyone!! Jimmy always has a blast with her!!
Cristina is the best. Very flexible, professional, great with Momo, She update the visit regularly through pictures. I will use Cristina again!
Cristina watched our dachshund, Oscar, and he had a blast! We will definitely be leaving our pooch with her next time we travel. Highly recommend her.
Cristina was awesome! Luna had such a good time. She came home happy and exhausted from all the playing she did! I'd recommend Cristina to anyone who needs their pup to be taken care of while they're away.
Cristina was nothing short of amazing when she took care of our two Frenchies. She would send many photos each day and it made us so happy to see they were being taken care of so well. Thank you Cristina for loving our girls as if they were your own!! Don’t hesitate to have Cristina watch your fur babies!
Cristina is the best! Jimmy had such a great time. Cristina kept sending me pictures and Jimmy looked so happy in all of them. Jimmy can't wait to see Cristina, Mutty and Dex again for a day filled with fun activities and walks.
I can't say enough good things about Cristina and her services. I receive many pictures throughout the day of my pup running around with other dogs, being social and getting tons of exercise. When I pick my dog up, she is happy and tired! I couldn't ask for more! We really feel so lucky to have found Cristina and will continue to repeat!
Our dog Boogie had such a good time with Cristina and we had an amazing trip knowing that he was happy and well taken care of!! Cristina took him for many adventures, long walks, dog park, etc!! And we had photos updates all the time! Cristina you were awesome, thanks a lot and soon Boogie will be back!!
Sadie did another round of doggy daycare with Christina this past week and came home a happy and tuckered out pup! Christina took Sadie to the park 3 times in one day! The bar has been set high by Christina, and since I cannot live up to this record with my corporate job, Sadie will have to head back to doggy day care at least once a week to get her fun-fix in with Christina. Additionally, Christina is super accommodating when it come to drop-off and pick-up times for Sadie, and has even met me halfway between our homes. My schedule can vary substantially from day to day and I greatly appreciate Christina's flexibility and patience. If you want to work with the best of hosts and ensure that your dog has the most fun, book Christina for your pup's next dogyvacay!
Cooper had a GREAT time with Cristina and pups! Cristina is a great host and brings the dogs on adventures bound to tire them out by the end of the day :) She is easy to communicate with and sends tons of pics throughout the day! Cooper is looking forward to coming back.
Leaving your pup with Cristina is a no-brainer! Your dog will spend the day running around WIDE OPEN spaces (not just someone's backyard), get plenty of exercise and hang out with her dog Dexter (a total stud and real nice dude). Cristina also sends you lots of pics throughout the day so you always know what you're dog is up to. We couldn't be happier with Cristina -- our only fear is that she becomes too popular! ;)
Sambuca was in great hands the minute I dropped her off for her vacay. I know because Cristina kept me up to date on all of her adventures. I think my dog had more fun than I did last weekend! Thank you Cristina and friends for taking care of our baby - i know she can't wait to come back!
I first utilized Cristina's services this past summer when I went on a trip out of the country. Most recently, I booked Sadie for doggy daycare as I tend to work long hours. Cristina took Sadie on several walks to various areas around town and sent me photos and videos of her having a blast. Sadie has so much fun with Cristina and comes home happy and fulfilled. I plan on making doggy daycare with Cristina a regular part of Sadie's weekly routine to break up the work week. Cristina truly cares for your dog as if they were her own and you can feel at ease to know your furry friend is well taken care of.
Thank you very much Cristina for accepting my last minute request. I loved all the pictures and videos you sent and i'm pretty sure my puppy had lots of fun with you and Dexter. Thank you again :)
Cristina was the best dogvacay host ever! Even though this was my first experience with dogvacay, Cristina went above and beyond my expectations. Sadie went on several adventures with Cristina, her dogs and family to the dog park, out on the boat, and even to the mall! Cristina treated Sadie with the same love she would have if Sadie were her own dog. Cristina also sent frequent photo and status updates on Sadie's vacation. I think Sadie may have had a better vacation than her parents did! We will definitely be using Cristina in the future for our dogvacay needs.
Cristina is the best dog sitter Luna had. Luna totally fall in love spending those days with Cristina and the rest of the dogs running on the park, going to the beach and playing every morning and afternoon. I loved how Cristina keep communicated with me , sending pictures , videos on how Luna was doing during our absence. I totally recommend Cristina to take care of any kind of dog, she had the charisma and the best feelings I've ever seeing in one person. You can totally trust that your dog will be in great hands :). Luna will keep seeing Cristina for a while, thank you very much, Luna is totally happy.
This was the second time Cristina took care of Christopher while we were away, and we couldn't ask for more from a host. Cristina cares about Christopher as if he were her own. And vice versa! Christopher was so happy to see her again, just as we expected he would be! It's so wonderful to know Christopher has a home away from home at Cristina's. We feel so at ease leaving him with her. Thank you so much for keeping him happy, active and loved. It means the world to us (and him!).
We're not sure who had a better vacation, Christopher or us! Cristina took him on a new adventure every day, whether to the beach or to the park. It was so comforting to know Christopher was staying active and being looked after with love, care, concern and attention. We couldn't have chosen a better host! We received numerous pictures, videos & updates daily and it was evident he was staying with someone who understands that an active dog is a happy dog. We are so lucky to have found her!
I am always traveling and this is the first time I choose Cristina. SHE IS THE BEST. I get pic everyday and videos too. She took him everywhere, birthday party, beach, park... I could tell on the pictures that he was VERY happy. Actually he's now kind of sad. I am travelling again in two weeks and will definitely let her Bruno again.
Thank you Cristina!!!
