Christy and her family took very good care of Macie while we were away! I will definitely book with her again if the need arises.

Christy and her family took excellent care of Zoe. They gave her lots of attention and took her on several walks, even in the rain. Christy kept me updated throughout Zoe's stay and was very responsive and flexible. I hope she and her family will dog-sit for Zoe again.

Dogs are family for us

Hi Dog Lover!
We are a family of five who have enjoyed having a dog. Mom grew up raising small and large dogs. We miss our dog Cardoff (shih tzu), who recently passed away. This is a great way for us to enjoy having a 'temporary pet'. Our kids are 18, 15 and 12. The oldest is our only daughter. We live in home with a big backyard in a nice neighborhood with many dog ...

We take more than one dog from Rover -- the number depends on the dogs and the situation.
Are they house broken?
If it's a puppy - is it crate trained?
Do they bark a lot with activity around the house?
Are they vaccinated/healthy?

We welcome any kind of breed as long as under 40lbs.

When Christy watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks:
We walk our guests in a quiet neighborhood with little traffic. Many times we greet our neighbors who are walking with their dogs. There is also small green area very close by where they love to roam and sniff. ( please see the attached the pictures )

Your dog's sleeping arrangement:
In the living room, one of the kid's rooms ( our daughter calls hers "Dog Central" ) or in our room.

Time I'll spend with your dog:
Someone is usually home through out the day. I am stay-at-home-mom and sometimes my husband works from home. We are blessed to have three responsible children that love dogs. But, we also enjoy making small trips (soccer games, parks, etc.) and your dog can join us as well.

Drop-off/Pick-up ( Please read ):
- Please be on time. I spend a lot of time planning a departure and pickup of my guests. Delays make it difficult to accommodate everyone.
- Flying? Please leave flight details and let me know if you are delayed. Latest pickup time is 9:30pm. We need our beauty sleep!
- Delayed pickup - I understand there is traffic and things happen. So, there's a 1 hr grace period from our agreed upon pickup time. After that, it is $10/hr.
