Description:

Hi! I love dogs and I live within a few blocks of Buena Vista Park, the Panhandle, and Golden Gate Park.

I've owned dogs most of my life (everything from Cocker Spaniels to Rotties) and I can't wait until I get my own pup in the city, but for now I get my doggy fix by puppysitting.

A typical stay at my place includes several walks, play time at the park, belly rubs, snuggles, and whatever your pup needs to feel at home. I know it's hard to leave your furry friend, even if it's just for a day, so I'll send you text/email photo updates as regularly as you'd like. :)

If needed, I could also bathe your dog and administer medication.

About Kristine H.:

Hi! There's nothing I love more than a waggy tail and I'll go the extra mile to make sure your dog is happy & comfortable while you're away.

While under my care, your dog will enjoy plenty of walks, play time at the park, belly rubs, and snuggles. I know it's hard to leave your furry friend, even if it's just for a day, so I'll send you text/email photo updates as regularly as you'd like. :)

How long have you been a dog lover? Tell us about your history with dogs.

As long as I can remember! There's nothing I love more than a wagging tail! Growing up, we always had dogs. Feeding, walking, and bathing the dogs were the only chores I would eagerly sign up for! :) My roommates and I would like to get a dog soon, but in the meantime we'll gladly give your pooch a loving home-away-from-home. :)

What would you like to know about a dog before sitting him or her? Do you have any breed preferences?

No breed preferences, all dogs are welcome! I'd like to know about the dog's personality, routine, and any special care needs.

Do you have reliable transportation in the event of an emergency?

Yes. I have a car and live close to several pet clinics.

Are you comfortable administering medication?

Yes, as long as you instruct me on what to do.

How much time do you plan on spending with my dog each day?

I work from home, so I'll be spending most of the day with your dog.

If you have a backyard, please describe it.

No backyard, but Buena Vista Park is a block away, the Panhandle is 2 blocks away, and Golden Gate Park is 5 blocks away.

Where will my dog sleep?

Your dog would sleep in the living room or in my room. If no crate is provided, I could set up a bed with comfy cushions or share my bed.

Where will you take my dog on walks? Tell me about it.

I'll take your dog on walks around my neighborhood and through Golden Gate Park, the Panhandle, and Buena Vista Park. If the weather is nice, I could also take your dog to Ocean Beach. :)

Great job, as usual!
Herbie has very special needs, and Kristine was absolutely wonderful with him. She sent me many wonderful updates and I trusted her completely. She's a true dog lover and I would recommend her to watch any of your precious babies, no matter how challenging they may seem!

Kristine has quickly become our go-to dog sitter. She provides frequent check-ins and sends photos of our girls throughout her stay with them. She is trustworthy and reliable, and we're happy we found her!

We met with Kristine to introduce her to our dogs and to talk about having her watch them for an upcoming trip. Right before she came over, an exciting out of town opportunity arose for the very next day, and because Kristine was immediately available we were able to go. She did a wonderful job taking care of our girls, and sent us periodic updates and photos. We are definitely planning on booking with her again! (Collapse)

As always we can't thank you enough for taking such good care of our dog while we are gone

I'm running out of great things to say about Kristine. She is perfect in everyway. I feel totally at ease leaving my dog with her for any amount of time!
Kristine is friendly, easy to communicate with, and sent us lots of cute pics of our pups during her stay. She was also a champ about feeding our chickens and watering our plants. I felt totally confident that our dogs were getting lots of love and great care while we were away. Thanks Kristine!

Testimonials

Jackie L. October 24
Kristine and I live together with two other housemates, and it's an understatement to say we all love dogs. But Kristine knows how to deal with more than just doggie kisses and cuddles. Sure, a dog might pee or poo in the house. Sure, the dog may bark at a rumbley bus. She takes it all in stride and loves all the dogs she cares for like they are her own.
Ty W. October 29
Kristine loves dogs more than anyone I have ever met. She cares for them better than many folks care for their own children. She's very responsible, as well, always putting the needs of dogs she cares for above her own. If you want your dog to be loved while you're away, I would highly recommend contacting Kristine.
Strider P. November 5
Kristine was wonderful with my big Bernese Mountain Dog! In the city, it can be hard to find someone that will accommodate large breed dogs. I could see when I dropped him off with her that she was going to take great care of him and I had peace of mind while I was away. I just booked my second stay with her for a weekend. Thanks Kristine!
