Introduction: PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING BEFORE REACHING OUT: Business hours are typically 8:00 am until 9:00 pm Monday through Friday with occasional weekends. Last potty break would need to begin no later than 8:30pm. 🐕🐶🐱🐈‍⬛🐈 There will be no visits scheduled from December 17th thru December 26th. I have a loving and caring deameanor towards all types of animals. For me each pet has their own special personality and I work with the pet owner to ensure that I meet the needs of their beloved family members. I have a positive attitude that any pet will respond to because they sense that I truly care for their well being. Your pet will always feel safe and happy while I am with them. They will experience a wonderful play date and happy tummy. Their tails will undoubtedly be wagging their entire body, hence, the tail will be wagging the dawg. I always provide updates about my visits along with pictures so that family feels a sense of security in the care of their pets. I have done residential cleaning in the past, however, that service is no longer provided. My primary focus is pet sitting and doggie walking. I am certified in Pet CPR and First Aid and have passed numerous courses on Fetchfind. We provide daily visits and drop in visits.

Pet Sitting

Christine was great with our dog. It was the first time we've ever had to use a pet sitter for him & she was flexible & reliable. We live in downtown Raleigh, so getting to our building & walking him isn't the easiest, but she was awesome. We'd definitely use her again.

Pet Sitting

Chris was a HUGE help! She showed up on time, was very communicative, and made sure our dogs were safe and happy while we traveled. She even sent videos of the dogs playing, which our kids loved. I highly recommend A Girl and a Truck!

Pet Sitting

My dog and I had a great experience with Chris. She recently cared for him while I was out of town for a few days and it went very smoothly. I'm an over-attached dog mom and was nervous about how he would do. Turns out, he did great! And Chris made me feel at ease with frequent text updates, pictures & videos of my pupper. I would absolutely recommend her and will work with her again next time I need a sitter! She is FAB.

Pet Sitting

Chris has been truly amazing from start to finish. She takes the time needed with my husky and I feel she is doing what she loves to do, which makes me confident that my dog is well taken care of when I’m away. Chris is also very professional and kind. I would highly recommend her for any job.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    A consult with you and your pet is required before final booking.  At this time, we will discuss access into your home, pet medications, number of visits, and other details.  If a key is shared and you would like for the key to be delivered back to you, a $10 service fee will be added to you final balance.    Pricing depends on the frequency of visits. As a general rule, visits begin at $20.00 for a 30 min visit. However, based on location and how often services are needed, pricing may vary. The fee is based upon visits and is the same for one pet or 10 pets at the same location. There is no additional charge for medication administration or visits going over 30 minutes unless it goes past 60 mins. Pets can be very unpredictable. It is extremely important that your pet gets their needs met versus me charging for additional time.  There is a $50.00 cancellation fee for any services not cancelled within 24 hrs of the visit. The fee MAY be waived depending on the reason for cancellation, on a case by case basis.      A non-refundable deposit of 50% of the total visits (up to $50) is required at the time of booking.  Otherwise, the date will not be held and the visits will not be confirmed.    The deposit will be applied to the balanced owned.  The final balance will be due prior to the first visit or on the day of the first visit.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I visit with potential pets and their owners to assess their needs.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I worked as a behavioral therapist for 10 years and prior to that I worked on state grants to assist those with a disability. I have over 20 years working with people. I enjoy meeting new people and I like a challenge. I have always maintained a positive outlook on life and I bring that enthusiasm with me everyday at work.
