Christine really went the extra mile for us. She sent pictures and updates daily. She worked very hard with a shy cat and got her to start coming out and taking her med. She made contact with an outdoor cat and made sure she was fed daily. She did extra things like taking our garbage out, making coming home easier. We highly recommend Christine!!Sep 12, 2018Verified
Chris is an amazing integral part of our care team for Larry our new puppy. She is way more than a dog walker. Her expertise in pet care has. Even such a great resource. She is supportive, dependable and so very kind. I can always reach Chris by text for updates and questions. I love that she sends pictures and updates from her visits! Larry loves her and so do we!!!Jul 24, 2017VerifiedChris' Happy Paws's reply

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Once we connect we will set up a 30 minute FREE(with scheduled service) meet and greet. At that time I will get acquainted with both the client and pet(s). I like to get to know my clients on a personal level. This helps with each of us becoming more comfortable and secure with one another. I feel it is necessary in order to communicate and establish a level of trust. We will do a walk through of the home and go over all important information that I will need to know to keep the pet on his or her regular routine when the client is not present.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am trained in both Pet CPR and first aid. I have had several pets of my own in the past and present and have also volunteered for local animal rescues for several years and am currently a volunteer and proud sponsor for Buffalo CARES Animal Rescue. I am a member of Professional United Pet Sitters (PUPS) Pet Sitters International (PSI) and Pet Sitters Associates (PSA)
