Christine's Canine Care


About Christine

I have been caring for dogs for more than 30 years. Now I am full time dog sitter so your pet will have lots of love and attention 24/7. My house has an enclosed garden for safe play, a park across the road for quick walks and fields around for longer walks. Dogs get treated like one of the family and no bed,sofa or room is off limits. They even have their own room in the house full of toys, comfy beds and old armchairs to play in.
In 2015 I volunteered at my local RSPCA to learn to work with dogs of different sizes and temperaments as well as how to treat rescue dogs. I have no kids or cats just in case that is a concern for your pet and I had a DBS check done in 2014 that I am happy to show to you.
From August 2015 to July 2016 I have been lucky enough to be a weekday carer for a beautiful Terrier called Fudge. Sadly, she and her family moved too far away for me to continue looking after her, but her owner is happy for you to get in contact for any questions or confirmation you need.
Please get in touch for more information. I look forward to hearing from you.

    I was really happy with the way things went leaving Poppy with Christine. It was the first time we have left her and as she was just 10 years old was a little set in her ways. She has come back happy and contented and I would have no problems leaving her again. I feel like I have found somewhere she is safe and happy with and that puts my mind at ease.

    Just wanted to say a very big thank you to Christine for taking such good care of our precious boy Mac. As this was the first time we were leaving Mac after recently losing his little sister, we were more than a little anxious!! Christine was wonderfully understanding and did everything to reassure us. We knew from the first moment she met Mac and dropped to the floor for a cuddle we had found the right person. She then even suggested a pre stay walk with Rolo who was also staying at the time, so that we would be assured that Mac would be ok with a new dog (now his new buddy!). When we picked him up we could tell by the way he followed Christine and how happy he was, that he had a wonderful time. Can't recommend her highly enough. Mac will definitely be back.

    Thank you so much for this amazing review. I miss my little couch buddy! I am so glad that he felt happy and at home here and that you also felt comfortable with him staying with me. I look forward to seeing his special tile walk again soon ;)

    I was really worried about finding someone suitable to look after my Rolo but I was so happy when I found Christine. She really put my mind at rest and she gave Rolo all the love and attention he needed, and sent us some great photos. Rolo came home happy and content and had obviously had a great time with Christine. I will be really happy to leave Rolo with her again in October and would definitely recommend her to other people.
