Rates based on care required, distance from my home, and visit frequency -
Single walk or check-in visit up to 30 minutes - $25
Overnight Boarding or Full Daycare in My Home - $50 (pickup/dropoff included complimentary within 10 miles, $15 fee up to 25 miles)
My rates vary based on distance from my home, number of animals needing care, and duration. I also take into account any special circumstances for medical care and behavioural issues.
For your personalised rate, please send me a note using the contact form. Include your desired dates, number and breed of animals needing care, and your location. Please include any information regarding special care or behavioural notes, and I will respond as quickly as possible with a rate, as well as my availability for a meet and greet with you and yours.
I offer petsitting services in my home or the client's because I find that this provides the best experience for the pet, as well as less stress for the owner. Boarding in my home is dependent on the client's pet and mine having a friendly relationship. Prior to the sitting experience, I like to schedule a meet and greet to ensure both myself and the animals get on. We can also use that time to sort out any remaining details.
I am experienced with all sizes, breeds, and temperaments of animal. I am also comfortable administering medication as needed. Over the years I have cared for cats, dogs, fish, lizards, snakes, frogs, rats, mice, hamsters, gerbils, rabbits, guinea pigs, sheep, cows, horses, chickens, pigs... and I'm hoping to add a mini donkey to that list!

Kristina took such good care while we were away!!! Kadi really took to her! She sent us updates everyday! Knowing that Kadi was enjoying Kristina's company, it made our vacation more enjoyable. Thank you Kristina for watching Kadi!!!

I highly recommend Kristina as a puppy sitter. She is responsible, knowledgable about animals, kind and loving. We have been so happy with her services at our home.

Kristina is responsible and caring. She helped with my 3 mo. old Papillon who absolutely adored her. When I was out of town, Kristina took the puppy home with her and I did not worry once about my baby's safety and well-being. I completely trust Kristina and would recommend her to anyone.

Kristina was great to work with. She came over weeks in advance to meet the dogs and see the house. She kept in contacts over the weeks and the day she was set to start sitting for our dogs she came by to learn out schedule and the dogs routine. While sitting for our dogs Kristina text and emailed pictures and messages. She came by days later to drop off the keys and tells us stories. It was great to hear them and know she cared about our pups.

Kristina was great! Very friendly and good to our cats! She'll be our go to pet sitter going forward.

Kristina watched my two dogs this past weekend while we were away. She sent me text messages with pictures and I know they were well taken care of. She was also very responsive when I reached out to get to know her and have her meet my dogs. I would use her again!

Kristina stayed with our two dogs in our home while we were away for a week over thanksgiving. The dogs were happy, healthy, and calm when we returned home, she even collected the mail for us. We usually have a family member house/dog sit for us so it was hard to think about a new person being there but Kristina was so professional, polite, and caring that we immediately felt at ease. We highly recommend Kristina to anyone looking for a pet sitter.

I have known Kristina for 15 years. I have seen her interact with all kinds of animals over the years-cats, dogs, rabbits, hamsters, etc...She has always been very kind to them. I have seen her handle emergent situations with ease and calmness. She is extremely knowledgable and has tons of experience dealing with animals. I would trust her with any pet that I own. Any pet would be extremely lucky to be in the care of such an amazing, caring individual.

We returned yesterday to a home that virtually looked untouched. Kristina was clearly thoughtful and respectful of our home during her stay. Our dogs acted as if we never left! They definitely had been exercised, loved and very well cared for while we were away. I loved the picture updates that Kristina sent us and really could not be happier with our overall experience. We would love to use Kristina again next time we're away! Thank you Kristina!
