Amazing!! Not enough stars to describe our experience with Kristine!!! We have two small dogs, who are literally our babies. Baxter is our rescue dog that we had only had for 3 months when Kristine came to stay with them and he's pretty skiddish still. So, we asked her to do not one, but three different meet and greets, and she happily went along with us!! She was so patient with him and let him ...

We just returned from a 9 day trip , Kristine made daily visits to our cat Toby, we were very thankful to receive the daily updates and photos. This is the first time we had used such a service and we won't hesitate to use the service again, particularly Kristen. She was very accommodating when it came to the needs of our animal, you can tell she loves what she does. Thank you , we appreciate it ...

I have known Kristine for several years via Facebook and can tell you that she is an honest, caring person with high morals and values. I wouldn't hesitate to have her sit with my furbabies.

Dogs Are the Best Kind of People

I have dog-sat for years, as well as been a dog owner for 35+ years. I've taken care of many dogs (and cats!) over the years, as well as a few birds. I currently own two cats — the oldest is now nearly 14 and I've had her since she was four months. I'm the sort of pet owner who always gives up bed space and will feed the animals before myself. I happily offer services ...

What Kristine would like to know about your dog

When I first meet your pup, I’ll introduce myself with the usual sniff of the hand and then some petting. I’ll spend a moment chatting and getting the "feel" of your furry friend’s personality.
To figure out what we should do together, I’ll ask if your pup has any preferences. If not, we'll hit a local dog park. When we’re hanging out at home there will be plenty of the usual things, like meals and potty breaks. There will be lots of fun and interaction as well. What dog wouldn't enjoy a good tummy rub or paw massage? A bit of tug-of-war or chasing a ball? Whatever activities your pup prefers is what your pup gets! Even cuddles and kisses!
I always keep clients informed and updated. I am not a mystery — I will give every client, human or pet, the sort of service I would want for myself and my own fur family. There will always be a promise of finding an answer or solution. I am dedicated and loyal; a client will never have to worry about my being late or absent. Anyone who books with me will be satisfied and happy. Even better, so will their pets!

When Kristine watches your pet

I don’t have any policies for meet and greets beyond punctuality and getting to know each other. I would want to know if your pup has any special needs, required medications, issues like anxiety, etc., or any potential tricky behaviors — like hiding or escaping. I have no preferences for dog breeds or ages.
