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 really must smell like a dog biscuit because our Bennie is a bit of an anxious dog and took to her immediately on his first day in her care. She kept me informed and sent me pictures during the day. He was happy and didn’t really want to go home. So, we will be back next week. Thank Chris, really appreciate your care.
