It has been such a great pleasure to have Christina sit for my dog Rena. I couldn’t be happier with the experience. From the moment we met, Christina demonstrated a genuine love for animals and a professional approach to pet care. She is punctual and dependable. I definitely recommend her.

I can not recommend Christina highly enough! My pup Maggie has some anxiety and I was worried about how she would do away from my family while we were on vacation. Christina took the time to do a meet and greet with Maggie and me before I booked and walked me through the entire process, what to expect and how we can work together to keep Maggie happy and well cared for. Christina’s apartment is clean, clearly well cared for, and Christina herself is incredibly friendly and clearly knowledgeable and a lover of animals. Throughout Christina’s time watching Maggie, she sent me pictures and videos of Maggie snuggling and playing, and am 100% positive she took care of Maggie like she was her own. Maggie appeared so happy and comfortable when we came to pick her up, my mom said “I’m not sure she wants to come home with us!” I will definitely rebook with Christina in the future, and feel lucky that we have someone in our neighborhood who can care for our pets just as well as if they were with us.

It does not get any better than Christina! She is incredibly caring, attending to detail and a delight to be in touch with while we’ve been away. Our kitty and plants were in the best hands. We received the best and thorough updates. She’s professional and personable. I’m so happy to have found her!

Christina took such good care of our pup! He was so adored and had the best treatment. Our elderly dog eats infrequently, especially in new or stressful situations, but he ate the first day with Christina, which is a testament to just how safe and secure he felt with her. I would recommend her to anyone, even if you have an old curmudgeonly pup like ours.
