About Christine

Hello, I love both dogs and cats and it would be a pleasure to care for your furry friend!

My dog passed away in 2019 at 15 1/2 years old, so I'm definitely missing the everyday doggie moments. I have a flexible schedule that allows me to provide great care and attention to your cat, dog, or rabbit.

I'm very close to the following neighbourhoods, but if you're not sure, message me as I may be able to help:

Cedarvale, Humewood, Forest Hill, South Hill, Hillcrest/Bracondale Hill, Wychwood Park, Corso Italia, Casa Loma, Davenport, The Annex, and Deer Park.

I can also visit the DOWNTOWN CORE of Toronto!

Description of services:

1. HOME VISITS:

I can provide home visits up to twice a day for your cat(s) and dog(s). The exact needs of your pet will be discussed of course, but I will clean and re-fill water bowls, prepare the usual food to your specifications, take your pooch for a 20-30 minute walk and for cats provide some play time and clean the litter box(es). Plants can also be watered and mail taken in if you will be away for a while. Detailed notes will be taken to ensure that your pet's routine is followed to your specifications! And of course daily updates and photos will be sent to you.

2. DOG WALKING:

I will take your pup for a good 30-minute walk around your neighbourhood. Your dog's likes/dislikes for walking can be discussed. (Where does he/she like to go?; what things scare your pooch and should be avoided? E.g. skateboarders, buses, large dogs). This will be a fun outing for your furry friend! I can also feed your dog after the walk, just let me know!

3. HOUSE SITTING:

I'll come to your place while you're away to care for your dog(s), cat(s) and other small animals. Details will be discussed with you to ensure that your pet's routine is followed and that your home is well maintained. This service will include feeding to your specifications, cleaning/filling water bowls, playing with your furry friend(s), walking your pups, cleaning litter boxes and sweeping/vaccuuming any litter that may get tracked on your floors. Watering plants (indoors/outdoors), taking out garbage and recycling.

Walks: typically I provide 3-4 walks per day of at least 30-minutes. However this can be tailored to suit your dog's needs and usual schedule. More active dogs can receive longer walks and senior dogs can have shorter, more frequent walks if that works better. I can accommodate whatever works best for your pooch. Generally, I can commit to being in your home for 19-20 hours per day. And you will receive daily updates and photos of your pal(s).

4. BOARDING:

Your dog can roam my apartment or be crated as per his/her routine and your wishes. Your pooch is welcome to sleep on my couch, but if you have a bed or if your dog sleeps in a crate, please bring it along so he/she feels at home. Toys and treats will only be given if approved by you in advance. And of course, you'll received daily updates and pictures of your pal.

I can accept both puppies that have been house trained and mature canines. Rest assured, my priority is to provide a loving and fun experience for your pet, while adhering to your specific guidelines for care.

Availability: My availability for the above services will be 7 days per week (unless I am already fully booked for the period that you are requesting).

NOTE: I take hand washing and cleanliness very seriously and always wash my hands when entering my apartment, your home or after touching a pet. I look forward to meeting you and your furry friend!

Christine is a great and very reliable pet sitter. She came to my place daily for over two weeks to look after my senior cat and was able to give him his medicine without issue. My cat normally doesn’t love strangers but he warmed up to her very quickly. She also was very communicative and sent daily detailed reports and photos, which was much appreciated. I am glad that while I was half a world away Christine was able to care so well for Milo!

Christine was absolutely WONDERFUL with communication leading up to, during and after caring for my two kitties. I was stressed with finding a new sitter after my long-term one moved out of the city, and upon the initial meet and greet with Christine, I felt certain they would be in good hands. I had an absolutely stress-free trip leaving them in her care, and Christine made sure to send regular in-depth updates and photos. I arrived home to two very happy cats and a sweet thank you note from Christine for choosing her to watch them! Will absolutely book her again!
