“Always put the dog first”

Hey there! My name is Christina, and my life has involved animals for as long as I can remember. Growing up, I was unable to have a pet dog, but that didn’t stop me from having a variety of other pets— birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, frogs, etc. Nowdays, I volunteer my time working with local rescue dogs at Castle of Dreams Animal Rescue. I’m in my second year of doing this. I also spend a lot of time with horses and am in my tenth year of riding!

“Hi, I’m Ryan - I’d love to meet your dog!”

I’m a fellow pet parent who recently moved to the Jersey Shore, and the best part of my day is spent outside with pups. I've been a dog mom for the past decade to two wonderfully tricky girls, Willow (Catahoula) and Sookie (Shih Tzu) who have both taught me a lot about meeting dogs’ needs with patience & love. I’ve also been involved in feline rescue and animal advocacy work. If there’s anything you need, just send me a message! I’m happy to help, and honored to care for your family.
