Christina was awesome! She arrived on time and took such great care of Grizzly. We got periodic updates with pictures, and she even left us a note describing all the things they did together. We couldn’t have been happier with her or Rover.

Christina helped us with our Dog Mia. Mia is a beautiful Pit rescue dog we decided to keep with two different colored eyes (!!!) and a sweet nature. We needed a sitter and some instruction on how to work with the dog in some ares, and Christina helped immensely in both areas.

As a dog sitter, I can't think of a more attentive, knowledgable person than 'C' (as I call her :)). After time with Mia, I ...

I would recommend Christina as a dogsitter, without any reservation whatsoever. She absolutely adores dogs. She is a naturally loving, caring, and energetic woman that any dog would be lucky to have her as a dogsitter. I would definitely seek her out to dogsit for me.

~*Free Massages & Fenced Yard*~

Former dog mom of large breeds ( Black Lab border collie & Black Lab Pitbull) since 1999. Animal shelter experience with diverse knowledge of different breeds and personalities. My dogsitting style is based on the teachings of Cesar Millan. I will welcome your dog into the pack and reward desirable behaviors and ignore unwanted behaviors. I will provide care to your furbaby as you instruct me to, so your sweetheart has some consistency while you are ...

What Christina would like to know about your dog

Before watching a dog, it is important for me to know if they are socialized with both humans and other animals including squirrels, cats, other dogs; if they have any phobias such as thunder, loud noises, certain types of people or environments and I need to know what their routine is so I may mimic it as much as possible. Being informed of health issues and medications is critical . Knowing if your dog has allergies, is treat or toy motivated, food or object possessive also are important to communicate so I may meet your furbaby where they are at and keep them smiling as often as possible even though they will be missing you dearly. I prefer smaller breeds because of the size of my apartment. Taking on a large breed would be a disservice and I would only consider it once the pet parent approved of the size of the apartment.All clients must sign liability waiver and provide legal id at meet and greet prior to services being confirmed through website. This is non- negotiable.

When Christina watches your pet

We will go where your dog is comfortable most. Different dogs have different energy levels and phobias. If I am granted permission I will take to Oakland Lake Park to walk. If the dog is fearful, I will take along quiet tree lined streets only or in the back yard. If the dog wants to have fun, we can play with any toys provided and play fetch/frisbee if the weather is good. We can run and I will even rollerblade to get your baby tired to relieve some anxiety. A tired dog is a happy dog. If your baby has any health conditions or a low energy level , I will adjust accordingly. I will meet your dog where they are at and allow them to be who they are while respecting the owners wishes in how they should be cared for. I love giving ear scratches, massages, taking naps, taking photos, playing dress up, and am very open to participating in any fun activities that you suggest for your dog as long as it is legal and safe.
