Cheerful & Tidy Home With Two Yards

Pet care experience

Your dogs will feel relaxed in my care and will go home happy when I take care of them for you. I live in a cheerful home with my mom who loves dogs just as much as I do. There are two separate yards and both are very dog friendly and secure. There is ample room for your dogs to play and sun bathe in. The interior of the house is very comfortable for the dogs and there is air conditioning as well to keep everyone comfortable on warm days. I have owned dogs my entire life and it's a joy to care for them while their family travels. I have one small and very sweet dog that gets along easily with all of our dog friends. I send a daily text update with a photo or video of your dog and their comfort is my number one priority. I keep only 2 dog guests at a time and have my own dog who is very sweet and mellow. Dogs that have high anxiety levels that typically lead to excessive whining and barking are not suitable for me. I also prefer to have dogs here that weigh 40 pounds or less. I very much enjoy this work and am always grateful to connect with other animal lovers.

Christina is so kind and has a very calming vibe which our dog Ollie loves. He came back from his overnight extremely happy and well cared for. Christina is the perfect dog sitter.

Christina did a wonderful job caring for our dog for a weekend stay! She sent us photos every day and kept us closely updated. Our dog enjoyed exploring her lovely fenced-in garden! Thank you, Christina!

Our dog had a great time with Christina! She took great care of our dog and sent us photos during the day as well as updates. Christina has a wonderful yard for them to play in and has a great way with dogs. Thank you so much Christina!

I have two fenced and secure yards that are amazing for the dogs to explore and play in. One yard has grass and the other is a brick yard. Both yards get plenty of sunshine and there are lots of trees so there are shaded areas as well.

Information Christina S. would like to know about your pet

It’s important that the dogs I have here are mature in that they don’t whine or bark excessively because of high anxiety levels. Dogs that are aggressive in any way with other dogs or people are not a good fit for me either.

A typical day

I walk the dogs daily in my neighborhood for 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on the weather and energy levels of the group. They enjoy about 4-6 hours outside in my yards daily too. I’m an avid gardener so the dogs love to spend time in the yard with me while I’m working in my garden. If your dog enjoys playing fetch, I’m happy to throw a ball around for them as well.

Availability

I spend a lot of time daily with the dogs. They enjoy my yards immensely and also love our daily neighborhood walks too. I’m away from home in the afternoons 6 days per week for about 3-4 hours while I’m taking care of my horse. So the dogs enjoy resting inside in the late afternoon after a fun and active morning and mid day outdoors. Please note that the earliest I'm available is 8am and the latest I'm available is 7pm. Please plan your dogs stay with me around my hours of availability.
