About Christine

I have been surrounded by and caring for dogs for more than 30 years and I am now fortunate enough to be a full time dog sitter. This means your dog(s) will have lots of love and attention 24/7. My house has an enclosed garden for safe play, a small park across the road for quick walks and fields around it 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 and I have no kids or cats in case that is a concern for your pet.
I normally keep the amount of dogs in my care to a maximum of 3 to make sure everyone gets enough cuddles and exercise and I am very strict on compatibility between dogs for peace of mind. If you prefer for your dog(s) to be the only dog(s) in the house, I would gladly arrange that with enough warning and where possible. (Please note that in peak season between May and September this service is generally not available unless arranged well in advance and there will be an extra charge per night)
I do insist on having a meeting before confirming any bookings to make sure that your pet and I are compatible and that they are happy in my home environment. A meeting will also give us the chance to discuss your pet's individual needs/routines/quirks. I look after a lot of older and rescue dogs who sometimes require a bit extra care and understanding so please don't hesitate to get in touch if this is your situation and you are unsure of what option is best for your dog. I can also arrange trial stays and play dates until all parties concerned feel comfortable if required.
Please get in touch for more information or if you have any questions or concerns. I am happy to help.

    Thanks, Lindsey! Ziggy didn't move again after Harry left and it takes a lot to tire him out so thank you to Harry too!! It was so much fun having him back for the day and I hope to see him again soon.

    I think Riley looks forward to his holidays with Christine now. It's always nice to see the photos she sends, and good to know he's being well looked after.
