What Clients Say

See what our clients have to say about our pet sitting services.

When I first started traveling years ago, my only concern was finding someone to take care of my fur baby Jeppa. Not wanting to put her in a kennel, I wanted a more personal one on one experience for her while I was away. I met Chrissy through friends.

Nichole S.

The most compassionate animal lover I have come across. Worked for years with Christine and always professional, positive and prompt. Gave 100 percent time and attention to animals and their owners. Always willing to spend time giving animals the adjustment time needed to feel comfortable and develop trust. I highly recommend and believe Christine will give your animal the best care and the attention they need to strive.

Michelle H.

She is definitely an animal lover and treats them like her own! I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my animals!
