Spayed and Neutered Dogs
No Females in Heat
Kristie has been an excellent catsitter. She is always punctual and makes sure our cats are fed and litter is cleaned in a timely manner. She also takes the time to play with them and sends me tons of updates while I am on travel which really helps. I don't have to stress about my pets anymore. I am very happy to have found her over Rover.
Kristie has now watched my cats multiple times over the last few months and has been completely reliable. It’s nice to be able to travel with the peace of mind that I have someone responsible taking care of my pets, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for drop in pet care while out on travel.
This is my second time leaving Marshall with Krishtie. He always has fun during his stay. This time it was long stay almost 24 days and I was not tended to leave him for so long as Kristie always keeps me updated with pictures and posts. I would definitely recommend her to everyone.
Veterinary Animal Care Experience
I have professional experience working with and caring for dogs of all breeds, sizes, and temperaments, as I worked at a veterinary hospital for a few years doing animal care and grooming. Through all my interactions with the animals in both the boarding and grooming environments—having seen and dealt with many types of situations—I have valuable experience and insight that make me keenly aware, sensitive, and knowledgeable in this field.

What Kristie would like to know about your dog
I would like to know anything you could tell me about your dog's personality, temperament, likes/dislikes, etc. before sitting him or her. Usual bathroom schedule? Feeding routine? Friendly with strangers/children? Friendly with other dogs? Illnesses/medical needs? Toy/food aggression? Knowing any and all details in advance will help ensure that I can keep your dog safe and comfortable.
* BREEDS/SIZES: I am open to most breeds and sizes for most of my services. I can accept large and extra large dogs as long as they are calm and friendly. Rates will be higher for Large/XL dogs.
* ACCESSIBILITY: I live in a 3-story townhouse so there are lots of stairs in my home. For the dogs' safety, there are gates to block off each level so that the dogs do not run up and down all the time and so that they do not run off to another part of the house out of my sight. If you have an older dog or a dog with hip/joint problems who may have trouble with the stairs (and slippery hardwood floors), my house may not be a good match for you. I can and will carry smaller dogs up and down, but I will not be able to do this for large dogs.
* Please also note that for day care and boarding, I only accept dogs who are socialized and friendly with other dogs since I do host multiple dogs at a time. I also do not board young puppies who are not fully potty trained.
