Chris was the Person I’ve ever had. She sent pictures every day and the cats didn’t even notice I was gone . So responsible so caring and the house was immaculate as far as kitty litter on the floor . There was none .

Chris is absolutely great, and we would highly recommend her. At the meet-and-greet (where Chris drove to our home to meet our dog "Riley"), there was an instant connection between them. We have two cats as well, and we learned that Chris adores them too. The cats readily accepted Chris as a kindred spirit, and quickly ventured out of their room to visit.

Chris was always available to talk or text, both before and during ...

Major Cat/Dog lover??

I have a very flexible schedule with owners and their dogs, I like to work with the owners schedules so they have no worries with not being able to find the right person to take care of their pet and making it a stress free process for them. I like knowing if they’re dog(s) have certain conditions that require medication or certain attention, how they are with other animals, specific time slots for ...

When Chris watches your pet

ESCAPE PREVENTION:
•While on a walks: My main priority is focused on them to ensure that they are completely being paid attention to, and aware of mine and their surroundings in making sure that they are never out of my line of sight.
•Bolting through doors? Not a problem, I have a front and back door which both have a gate inside and outside the house, making each entrance double enforced to prevent any escape.
•Playing in a fenced yard or dog park? I have 2 parks within my neighborhood, if your dog(s) aren’t very social with other dogs or people and there happens to be a park with them there, I will go to the second park. I also have a dog park that is half a mile from my neighborhood if your dog wants loves to be around other dogs. When I take dog(s) out for a walk, I typically make sure it’s not so hot out for them so they don’t burn their paws. But my neighborhood has a lot of shade and our parks are always cool no matter the time of year.

INTRODUCTIONS:
Two situations in which I introduce new dogs to each other is first off, making sure if your dog(s) like to be around other dogs. If you have 2 dogs and they tend to fight, I would be there to prevent any fight to take place, and to make sure they are never out of my sight. If your dog(s) are generally friendly, I make sure to take it slow in introducing them to other dogs in making sure with the other owner if their dog(s) are friendly, and if they are then the dogs start to get to know each other.
Where introductions occur will mainly be if we are out on walks, my dog won’t be present at my place if pets are over, so it won’t make any pet nervous, because your pet is going to a new place they’ve never been, and I want to make sure that they are at the utmost comfort till you come back to pick them up.
Luckily, I’ve worked with many dogs and cats that have had stress due to a number of things that have happened in their life. One dog was believed to have had a difficult past and certain wordings would trigger those moments. So I’m a very firm believer in giving positivity and praise to dogs and cats. I also love to give treats to them on accomplishments or because I really enjoy having them around, which also makes them feel better and more comfortable about the environment and the person they are around.

•FEEDING:
Even the best behaved dogs can be food aggressive. All my life I’ve had about six dogs, and what I have learned if any of them were to have randomly got upset during their meals or with the other dog, I would feed them in different places, typically one in the kitchen and one in the living room, that way they could eat stress free.

•ANXIETY: During a stay, sometimes a dog can display anxiety as far as going to the bathroom on the floor or playing with furniture... Whenever a dog comes over, I always leave down doggy pads just as a precaution. When it come to furniture or anything else I make sure that they are very comfortable to begin with because they are visiting a place they have never been to, so I make sure that I have dog toys out making sure they are getting full use out of them, walks are frequent, praises are in order, and treats at the ready. And in general, I love sending photos to the owners so they are up to date with any and everything on the status of their fur babies.
