About Christina

About me: Compassionate, caring, knowledgeable and experienced pet care provider.

I specialize in senior pet care. I have substantial experience caring for pets with kidney or heart disease as well as dogs with canine cognitive disfunction. Please contact me for more information.

Experience:

My recent experience includes, but is not limited to:

volunteer foster and event coordinator for freedom dog rescue;

volunteer animal care assistant at rideau valley wildlife centre;

over three years experience providing professional pet care services for dogs, cats and small pets (rabbits, fish, guinea pigs);

providing insulin injections, IV fluids and oral medication to cats and dogs with special needs.

Through my volunteer activities I have completed dog training courses and animal behaviour courses, which I apply when taking care of dogs entrusted into my care.

Certifications

Pet first aid certified by st. john’s ambulance; and

Dog daycare owner (online course).

Services:

Every client is different and the services outlined below are a basic outline of what can be provided.

1) Home visits:

15 to 20 minutes maximum (please inquire if additional time is required);

checking on the pet to ensure its wellbeing;

feeding/water/medication;

cat litter tidying/scooping;

bathroom breaks (if required).

2) Dog walks:

provided mornings, afternoons and evenings;

minimum 30 minutes at a nearby location;

trips to off leash dog parks can be requested (additional charges may apply).

3) Home dog boarding and daycare:

These services are offered to repeat clients only. If you are a new client and would like to discuss home dog boarding or daycare please feel free to contact me or book one of my other services to see if we are a good fit. I work from home full time and book one client at a time for these services.

At a minimum these services include: three walks a day (weather dependent), play time, fesh water and food/medication/ treats are distributed as per the owners instructions. Dogs are only crated if requested by the owner. I do not have a back yard but there is a large field across the street and a park nearby. Please feel free to contact me with any questions and I look forward to hearing from you. Christina (Chrissy).
