About Christina N.:
15 years of experience

Hello! My name is Christina and I am the owner of a local pet walking and pet hair removal company here in Portland and I'm partnering with Rover to provide to you safe and insured dog walks for your hounds. We cater to dogs of all types, and are looking to build long-term and meaningful relationships with you and your beloved pets. This service is ideal for the family who is not home throughout the day Monday-Friday, and does not have the time to come home to let their dogs out for a nice potty break, or just to give a few hugs and kisses. No, we do not charge extra for hugs and kisses!

For $85 per week Monday-Friday (just $17 per day), you and your furry children will get:
1.) A daily visit Monday-Friday for up to 2 dogs for 20 minutes, with that time to be used however you choose!
2.) 1 weekly pet hair and dirt removal from the same individual who will walk your dogs after the cleaning! This includes a floor and furniture vacuum, and a dusting to remove pet residue, or, "Pet Ick" as we call it.
3.) Catered service that meets the needs of moms and dads who work the 9-5. Night walks possible upon request.
4.) Insured and trained dog walkers to walk up to 2 of your dogs daily. That's right, no additional charge if you have a second dog!
About this sitter:
I am a nature lover and animal/dog enthusiast. When I'm not hanging out with your canine babies, I am helping out on a friend's farm, taking long hikes with my hound, doing some gardening, or volunteering with PAW Portland. I am definitely a people person, but the joy and challenges our canine companions bring me is not only what I want to focus my career on, it's what I have the most passion towards. I believe a person is changed forever after having a dog.

Christina N.'s Experience:

I have been dog sitting for the last 5 years and found that I am destined to make providing dog care my profession! I have recently turned to dog walking rather than hosting dogs because I have listened to the needs of my clients very carefully. Many have said, "I can't put my dog in doggie daycare as fights break out too much." I have been told "My dog prefers to be at home on the couch because he is older and grumpy around other energetic dogs." With these being said, a dog still needs a potty break and some love!

Note from the professionals: All dogs behave differently in various circumstances and especially when their owners are not present. We know how to handle these changes in behavior!

How long have you been a dog lover? Tell us about your history with dogs.

My love for dogs began with my family rescuing our Dalmatian Spot from an abusive owner. After Spot, came many more adopted dogs and rescues in the San Diego area, where I grew up. In my adult life I moved to Portland and rescued my own dog and began dog sitting and dog walking for friends and clients in the Portland area, I can't see myself doing anything else! I am also a volunteer for PAW Portland, working in the free clinics for homeless dogs and their owners.

What would you like to know about a dog before sitting him or her? Do you have any breed preferences?

I welcome all breeds. Please be honest and upfront about special needs dogs including needs related to health, injuries, or temperament.

Are you comfortable administering medication?

Yes.

Are you willing to do additional tasks at my home while I'm away
(e.g., water plants, bring in the mail)?

My service also includes a cleaning of your home to remove what I call "Pet Ick". This includes a sweep and mop, a vacuum of your carpets and furniture, and a dusting.

How much time do you plan on spending with my dog each day?

Your dog will receive at least a 20 minute walk/visit daily (M-F), for up to 2 dogs.

This sitter accepts:
Clients within: 10 miles (see map)
  • Dogs who can wait at least 0 to 2 hours between potty breaks

Christina was great. It was my first sitting experience in Portland and she made me feel comfortable from drop-off to pick-up when leaving my dog with her. She provided me with occasional text updates and has her own dogs to keep my dog company. Having an older dog it is hard to relax without worrying while away but Christina put me at ease. Thanks again!

We were on vacation for 16 days and Christina provided exceptional care for our Minnie Aussie. She is high energy which was not a problem for Christina.

Jacquie enjoyed her week with the other dogs, and was healthy and happy to see us when we picked her up.

We couldn't have asked for a better sitter for our little pup. While we were out of town, Christina happily provided for Jacquie's every need. Her house is set up perfectly inside and out for the needs of a dog. The level of interaction was great, and we even received photo updates during the week on our smartphone. We will definitely ask her to sit for us again, and we give her our highest recommendation.

I dropped my 2 dogs off with Christine for a week; she was very responsive and sent photos of them while I was gone. She also graciously let us pick them up super late when our plane was later then expected. Will use her again to watch them!
