Christine is awesome! She truly cares for our puppy Ella like she is her own. Christine ensures our puppy is safe and well taken care of AND she even teaches basic training skills our puppy really needs at this time. We know Ella is in great hands with Christine.

30+ yrs. as a Pet Care Professional

*I AM NOT A "HOBBY" PET SITTER, I HAVE EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE and it is important to have that experience when choosing a Pet Sitter.
*I have worked as a pet professional for over 30+ years.

What Christine would like to know about your dog

*I do not have any breed preferences. "Large and Small I Love Them All".
*I do prefer your pet to be up to date on all vaccinations, including BORDATELLA.
*I do prefer the pet owner to be completely honest as to how the dog gets along with other dogs. If he/she does not, I can accommodate that, but need the owner to BE HONEST regarding aggression to people or dogs.
*Also, if the dog is housebroken is VERY important; because we want to be able to have him/her in the house if weather should be too hot or cold.

When Christine watches your pet

*We just request you be sure to provide a leash and secure collar or harness for your dog.
*Also, please be sure to let us know if your dog is aggressive. If a dog becomes too aggressive during an outing or walk we will terminate the outing/walk immediately.
*Sometimes, dogs will react differently when they are with strangers and in an environment that is "stressful" or unfamiliar.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
*If you prefer, we can crate your dog at night if he/she is crate trained.
*If not, he/she will most likely sleep in the bedroom with myself or my son and of course in the bed; that is if your dog is comfortable with that, and is HOUSEBROKEN AND FREE OF FLEAS. :)

Time I'll spend with your dog
*If your dog is staying here at the house with us, I will be spending more than 20 hours a day, depending on my schedule.
* If I am currently doing sitting in the home of another client the time schedule may change. I will be sure to let you know when you drop your dog(s) off.

Extra house-sitting services
Plant and yard watering can be arranged. I do charge a fee if I am not staying at your home with your pets.
If I am staying at your home I will water and it is included in the fees.
