About this sitter

Hello! We are Chrissy and Mike, a traveling pair in thirties who loves animals but has most experience with dogs. We are spending time traveling the world from fall 2021 through fall 2022. Our own dog (who is in heaven now) was very anxious when we were away, so we understand the importance of giving extra love to pets missing their parent(s). We are both educated professionals who decided to step away from that life to experience the world. Chrissy have a bachelors degree in Finance and a Master in business management. Mike has bachelors degree in Marketing. Non smokers.

Why they want to house sit

We house sit because we love exploring new places, while staying in real houses to get the real feel of an area and it's culture. We find that living in a home is more rewarding than staying at a hotel. We also love animals!

Their experience

We are the people who would rather play with a dog than a child. Chrissy is currently a paid pet sitter on Rover.com and has much experience. Here is her bio and reviews from that site. https://www.rover.com/members/christina-a-fun-dog-lover-wanting-to-play/?service_type=overnight-traveling&frequency=onetime&pet_type=dog#reviews

We know and understand the importance of schedules. Growing up Chrissy would often take care of her friend’s pets. Our dog who recently passed, had allergies and we gave him medicine twice daily. He also got morning and evening walks which we all enjoy. Chrissy had birds/parakeets and a hamster growing up. Also, she worked at a plant nursery for many years and can easily take care of a variety of plants. .

What can they bring to the assignment

We will be a good, loving, rule-following companion for your fur babies while you are away. We very much understand the anxiety they may feel and am very compassionate towards that. We are happy to spend hours cuddling on the floor to help relieve stress. We have many reviews in Airbnb about our respect for the home and cleanliness. If you wish we are happy to take photos and send daily messages. Clean background check is from 2020.

Testimonials

The best house-sitters you might hope for

Christina and her mom were such lovely guests! They kept in contact throughout the whole stay, sending cute pics and updates everyday. My pups enjoyed all the lovely attention they received (brushing time included) and the time spent together walking around the neighborhood. As for me I was really able to enjoy my trip knowing everything to be going at the best. They were super thoughtful with me too, taking really good care of the house and leaving it tidy and clean, super nice thing to find out when you get home late at night tired from a long flight. Highly recommended!

Fantastic sitter

Chrissy was such a joy to have watch our pup and home while we were away for a week. She was our first sitter we used, but any nerves we had at first were immediately alleviated after hearing her extensive experience with sitting and pup raising! She was very communicative, sending us daily updates & photos on Juno. She also has the flexibility to work remotely, so Juno was rarely home by herself. She took Juno on several trips around the city, which was great to see all the adventures they went on! Chrissy was incredibly sweet and left our home tidy! It’s clear she is very knowledgeable on how to take care of pets, so anyone would be lucky to have her watch yours! Juno was very lucky to have such a wonderful care taker while we were away, especially one that can keep up with Juno’s energy! :) definitely will be reaching out to Chrissy again for our future trips.

Responsible, caring house sitter!

Christina was a wonderful house sitter, and took loving care of our pets and garden. She was friendly, flexible, and communicative, took initiative and went out of her way to be helpful. Plus, I think she had fun enjoying our house and city. She sent us a general description of her plan for the two weeks, so we could feel comfortable that she would be on hand to feed, walk and cuddle the pets, and kept us updated by text. Christina left everything very clean and organized, and the pets and garden were happy and healthy. We highly recommend Christina to help you with your house and pet sitting in the future!

4 dogs, no probs!

Chrissy and her mother were great house- and dog-sitters. They looked after my house and four dogs for ten days. I can say that they were tidy, highly organised and very helpful. They kept us up to date, and checked with us when they noticed something about one of them. Attention to detail and communication were very good, and Chrissy showed real care for the dogs. I found them to be very dependable and a pleasure to deal with. Thank-you Chrissy!

Great housesitter and perfect with our pets

Chrissy watched our pets in our home while we went on vacation for 9 days. She took care of our elderly dog who has a lot of medical issues and had a very difficult time walking, making his walks really slow. She gave plenty of attention to our prima donna bunny. We got daily text messages and photos to update us on how they were doing. She also took great care of our house plants and outside herb garden. Our home was better than we left it upon returning from vacation.

Great Sitter

We were very pleased with Chrissy during her stay with Jasper. She is a kind person and you can tell she understands and loves dogs. She was wonderful with timely communication while we were gone. She kept the apartment in good condition.

Flexible, communicative, and reliable

Chrissy was able to help us out on short notice to stay for a weekend. We had already booked her for a 9 day stay in September but unexpected travel came up and she was willing to stay for a short weekend. She communicated with us regularly and left the place clean and organized. Our dog Buddha loved her and she did great with our prima donna rabbit! We will be using her again in September for a much longer trip and have no worries or concerns that she will take the best care of our pets and property! We highly recommend her to watch your home and pets.
