Chris was great - she was amazing with Reu and extremely flexible. We were in Palm Springs for a family vacation and realized when we arrived that our family wasn't comfortable with her. We were extremely sad to board her but were more at peace when we found Chris. We were sent updates and pictures each day and when we went to pick her up a week later, Reu was running around happily and perfectly content ...

Christopher took excellent care of Colt while I went to Texas for Christmas. I had total peace of mind knowing he was on her little farm with other dog (& people) friends to play with. She sent pics and updates throughout his visit. I would definitely take Colt back and recommend her as a boarder.

3 fenced acres to run and play!

Hello!
I have been raising, showing, training dogs for about 20 years. Dogs are my passion and my part of my family. I have German Shorthaired Pointers that love to run and play. When your dog is staying with me, they will have the opportunity to run and play outside all day. Everyone is kenneled up safely at night.

If your dog plays well with others, they will be allowed to run and play with ...

What Christopher would like to know about your dog

I would like to know if the dog has any unusual or aggressive behavior towards dogs, other animals, or people before it arrives. I would also like to know if the dog is crate trained. All dogs are required to show proof of current vaccinations including bordetella. A schedule of the dog's feeding and walking times would be appreciated to try and keep the dog on as normal of a schedule as possible.

*With the epidemic of the Canine Flu, it is highly recommended (REQUIRED for imported dogs at this time) getting your dog the bivalent Canine Influenza H3N2 and H3N8 vaccine. All of my personal dogs are vaccinated, and while clients are screened prior to their stays here, I cannot guarantee that they are not carriers, as the symptoms don’t usually show up until 7 days after being exposed. Boarding at any home or facility, daycare, dog parks, grooming facilities, and vet hospitals may increase the likelihood that your pet comes into contact with this virus.*

Things to bring with your dog, for their overnight stay:
- Food (portioned out per meal) for the entire stay, plus one day (just in case)
- Medications and/or supplements clearly labeled with dosage instructions
- Collar, harness, halter, leash, etc
- Boarding Agreement Form which will be emailed to you after we discuss boarding and/or daycare. Click the link to view Boarding Agreement: https://goo.gl/1bzbDN
- Copy of current vaccinations

Please note: boarding is for a 24 hour period. If a later pick up is required, a daycare charge will be added, in order to continue Rover insurance coverage. Drop off/pick up times for boarding are between 8 am and 9 pm, by appointment.

~I recommend that toys or beds are left at home due to they may become lost or damaged during the stay. I have extra crates and bedding that your dog may borrow in case you do not have one or it is not easy to transport.~

I accept altered, unaltered, and females in heat. All sizes and breeds are welcomed also.

About Christopher's Home

When Christopher watches your pet

I have 3 completely fenced acres that we can play on. They can run, chase lizards, and play fetch.

If training has been discussed, the dogs can accompany me to obedience, field, or dock diving training.
