About Christine

About Me:

Hi my name is Christine and I'm 47 years old. I leave in Prebbleton on the outskirts of

Southwest Christchurch. We are a family of 5. I am an animal lover from way back and love the outdoors and a spot of gardening. Animals have been a large part of our family for many years and we wouldn't be a family without a furry friend. My family is all grown up so am I free to pursue something I love to do. I am available full time to look after your beloved pet.

CHRISTMAS WEEK (SUNDAY 22 TO THURSDAY 26TH DECEMBER) ... I AM FULLY BOOKED FOR DOG BOARDING AND DAYCARE. I AM AVAILABLE FOR THOSE DATES FOR HOME VISITS ONLY THOUGH. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

Experience:

I have a vet nursing background and many years working in community care. Over the years our family has had many domestic animals in our home. We currently have a friendly wee dog (Lowchen) named Ted who loves a playdate! I am an experienced dog walker. I am that person who always asked to pat your dog and asks their name. We have also had many feline friends in our home so I am very familiar with cats too. I've fed and cared for friends and family's cats frequently since I was a teenager!

Home Life:

I live in a well secured fully fenced property with separate fenced areas including a concrete terrace for wet days and a fully enclosed dog run on the south side of our property. The run includes an insulated kennel for those cold days and nights.

There is lots of grass to play on.

Your pet will be welcomed into a pet loving family with lots of inside time and cuddles on the couch. Ted has kindly been the star model to show you areas of our home where your pets will be cared for. My daughter Emily (18) who is student will also be available to care for your dog while visiting us for the day/night. She too, is very fond of animals, especially dogs.

Your pets:

It is important your animals feel secure while you are away from them and I will do everything I can to make them happy with walks, cuddles, toys, playtime and a safe environment.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me so we can work out the best possible options for you and your pet(s). This is a good time to let me know of any dietary requirements, medications or any other special requests you may have concerning your pets care.

Dog Boarding:

The cost of Doggie Sleepovers are for a 24 hour period starting from the time you drop off your dog. An additional daycare booking may be required depending on what time you are picking up your dog. This can be discussed with me when an enquiry is made and what best suits you. When your dog stays with us they become one of the family for the time they are with me.

"Christine and her family provided our miniature schnauzer Romy with a sleep over playdate with Ted. 9 month old Romy loved it! Christine and her family can totally be trusted with your loved dog, no inappropriate treats, lots of cuddles and loving boundaries." Auriole Cattermole 12/11/19 Prebbleton Resident

Thanks so much for reading my profile. I look forward to meeting you and your fur babies.

Cheers

Christine

Christine took wonderful care of our three cats, they all warmed up to her even though they're normally quite skittish around strangers. Very happy with how well they were looked after, we'd definitely book with Christine again!

Specific Skills

I speak English
+20 years of experience
Familiar with dog training techniques

Dog daycare: I have many years of caring for domestic animals and have a vet nursing background. I spent considerable time on and off family farms over the years. I am available Monday to Friday to care for your dog in my home. I am available on Weekends on request. At present I do not have a job outside of our home so I am available all day for your pet. We have a secure fulled fenced property where your dog will be cared for both inside and outside the house. All gates are secure. We have both concrete and grass areas which are gated off separately. And a supply of fresh drinking water on the ready! A daily walk will be a must as will lots of cuddles and playtime. I am happy to fit into your dogs usual routine including feed time if needed. We have a sleeping crate for dogs who require a more secure sleeping area and dog beds/couches with plenty of blankets also. It would be helpful if you brought a favourite toy for your dog while they stay together with their leash.

Dog walking: I am an experienced dog walker (both on and off the leash) and love to go for a good walk each day. I am happy to walk your dog for upto 1 hour depending on their needs or take them to the local dog park if you prefer.

Home visit: I am a reliable and trustworthy person (clean police checks on previous employment) and I am very happy to come to your home to visit, play, feed and cuddle your pet so they feel loved while you are away from them. If you have a dog I am happy to walk them for you. A meet & greet is really important to me so you can ask any questions and I get to meet you and your pets before you go away.

Dog Sleepovers: I offer a boutique style homestay for your dog. Depending on your dogs needs they are able to sleep inside or out. Your own dogs bedding/crate is most welcome. They must be socialable and be fully vaccinated when they stay please. A meet and greet is really important to me so you can see and discuss the homestay and so I can meet your dog.
