Kristen was amazing caring for our dog and cat over Xmas. She came several times a day to feed them, give them company and exercise, sent us daily photos and updates, and they were relaxed and content when we got home.

I lived in Cartagena, Colombia for 3 years, just before moving to DC, and volunteered for an organization that rescues street dogs who suffer from the worst possible cases of abuse, disease, and neglect. It's no coincidence that my own wonderful ...

What Kristen would like to know about your dog

Each animal has their own quirks, likes and dislikes. In order to give you dog the best experience, it is helpful for me to know if they have any favorite toys or treats, whether they are friendly with other dogs or prefer to be a lone wolf, and any extra details that makes your furry friend special.
