About Chris

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Friends say I must smell like a dog biscuit which I think is a compliment for how dogs and I relate. Perhaps that's why I've been an auntie to so many of their pets.

I am also experienced foster for traumatized rescue dogs. Most come from kill shelters across the border, and travel for 48 hours to reach Vancouver, and my home. I have oodles of love and patience to share, and seeing their transformation in (often) just a few days is a joy.

I live near the beach, Jericho parklands and enjoy dog walks at Pacific Spirit Park. On Sundays, I like to hike the North Shore mountains with dog walkers and while many of those dogs scramble the trails off-leash, I wouldn't consider offering that perk to any animal in my temporary care.

Before accepting any overnight stays in my home, I prefer to meet the owners so they feel confident that their dog is is excellent hands.

If you prefer me to dog/house-sit your home, this can be arranged via dogvacay.com/and a phone conversation.

Chris was amazing! She took great care of my new rescue for the day which is a tall order when we're talking about a puppy. Lenny almost didn't want to go home when I came to get her. Will definitely be back!!!
Chris is very pleasant and easy to deal with. Our meet and greet was arranged promptly, professionally and our Maggie was excited to see her by barking at her door when we arrived.

I was a little concerned at first with leaving her with a stranger,but as soon as we got inside Chris's home ,Maggie perked up even more ,ran straight for Chris.,got some loving care and proceeded to make herself at home,running up the stairs,jumping on the furniture and acting up.
I knew then this is the place for her to stay and felt completely at ease.
We will definitely be using her service again.

Very friendly and accommodating. We have a 12 year old dog, who for the first time went to another sitter and it was a great experience. We will definitely have him stay with Chris again.
