Sookie came home happy and healthy after staying with Chris. Chris was very responsive to my arrival and pick-up times. And she sent lots of cute pix of Sookie. Thanks.

Chris’ home is peaceful and playful. Two sweet German Shepherd girls live with her and are very welcoming to new dogs. My Taz had an excellent stay and would love to go back. She is my top choice in Durango, Colorado! Happy to have found such a sweet lady!

Chris was a wonderful match for our dog Adda. They had a great routine, enough exercise and interaction, sleep and diet. Chris was sending us pictures were Adda was always having a great time which definitely made our time apart easier . When we went back, Adda looked happier and healthier than ever. I am very impressed with humane approach and responsibility that Chris maintained at all times. Definitely coming back again (Adda misses you!) Thank ...

Home Away from Home

MY EXPERIENCE:
I have owned, bred, trained, fostered and raised multiple breeds of dogs of my own, as well as rescue dogs. I bred show quality AKC German Shepherd dogs for over a decade.

I currently own 2 dogs; both are 5 y/o long haired German Shepherd spayed/females. I also have 3 cats that complete my family.

CLEANING:
I do not use chemicals as my major cleaner to clean my home or kennels ...

What Chris would like to know about your dog

Due to my elderly Newfie being a male, it upsets his pack leader senses to have a young large male on the premises. That's why smaller and/or older dogs fit well in here.

I do know human CPR.

When Chris watches your pet

I have a quiet dirt road around my neighborhood I can walk on if the dog can handle that. Otherwise, we play ball in the backyard.
