We had been invited to join a group of friends for 8 days in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and we knew no one in Florida with whom we could leave our two beloved Cavalier King Charles pups. We had great trepidation about leaving them with strangers, especially since our older female takes several meds for liver disease, and our 4 year old male is terribly shy. My online research led me immediately to Rover. Rover made it so convenient with offerings of several pet sitters within 25 miles of our location. I called Christina, who assured she was available. We set up a time and date to meet at her wonderful home. I was amazed at her beautiful, expansive yard and enclosed terrace which offered so much freedom for the dogs to run and explore, along with her sweet cocker spaniels. I immediately felt relief that our dogs would be in loving, capable hands. In Mexico, we were delighted to receive daily photos and comments on how the dogs were doing and how quickly they had adjusted to their "vacation home". The dogs were happy and healthy when we picked them up, and even our little shy Bo-bo was much better socialized after his stay with Christina. She is competent, reliable, professional, knows and loves animals and it shows. We are so thrilled that we found Christina and she will always be our first choice in future anytime we must leave our dogs. May God Bless you, Christina, and Juliette and Beauregard thank you!

Christina is amazing! We left our babies for a week with her and I just can say they had a great time at Christina’s home. She sent us updates and pictures and was very responsive and compassionate. My small dog was injured and she took great care of her and helped her to heal faster. My other puppy was scared of dogs and she helped him to be more confident. Also, all of her dogs are so sweet so it was great exposure for my puppy. Now, he seems to be more happy and confident around dogs. Definitely the best experience I ever had with a sitter. Thanks, Christina! ♥️

A typical day

We play hide and seek in the backyard or mind games where the dogs locate the treat and need to be able to open the slot to get to it. Balls or frisbees for any one who is a fanatic. After all the activity we might all need a nap.
