About Christina

My name is Christina and I cannot WAIT to hang out with your best friend!

I've always loved dogs, having grown up with my own, and my passion for furry friends recently took me to Mexico to work at a live-in dog rescue for 6 months. This was the most incredible experience of my life, allowing me to interact, learn, understand and above all HELP so many furballs in need. The animals also didn't live in kennels, but with us in the house! My heart has never been so full of love, but also so broken that I couldn't bring them all home with me :(

This experience has led me to pet sitting, because whilst I can't have my own pup at the moment, I still love to make puppy friends. My time in Mexico means I have experience looking after a variety of different dogs (and cats - we rescued them too!), from the tiniest Chihuahuas to massive Great Danes! I understand breeds, rescues, behavioural issues, reactivity and social issues... you name it, I understand it. I can also confidently look after sick animals in need of special care/attention. And most of all - I will cuddle your pets as much as they let me!

I absolute adore and understand dogs - and I love cat cuddling too! I'm also active and love to take dogs for walks, so can accomodate to fit 1 or 2 walks in a day. Or if they prefer to Netflix and chill, I'm down for that too. If there are birds or other animals in the house that need taking care of, I'm comfortable looking after them too.

I’m happy to send daily photo updates - because let’s face it, I’m guaranteed to be taking lots of photos anyway!

Experienced with first aid and medication too. And I love training dogs - if there's anything you need help with, I can certainly give it a try. I'm not a specialised trainer but I loved to teach the pups tricks in Mexico.

Let's talk! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

This was our first time using a pet sitter and I was a little nervous about letting someone I didn’t know stay in our home.But after meeting Christina I felt completely at ease. She was understanding to our dogs special personalities and was happy to maintain there routines and daily medication requirements. Christina took wonderful care of our dogs and they were both very happy when we arrived home. She has excellent communication and left our home clean and tidy. Would highly recommend Christina to look after your furry loved ones
