"I first encountered Christine walking a little black terrier named Bart in our neighborhood. She stopped to come visit with my little old terrier, Sheba and we struck up a conversation. It was so refreshing to have someone walking their dog be so cordial and happy to have the pups meet. So right there she had me hooked. We started talking about her services and before I knew it I was asking if she dog sits and if 3 were too many. She said "Not at all" and we exchanged numbers. From here on out I was so impressed with her constant communication, willingness to come to our home multiple times to get to know our pets and always with a sunny demeanor. We have a big lover boy pup who does his job of protecting the house. She showed no concern around him and the two of them ended up having a love affair that actually made me jealous! We loved the pictures and movies Christine sent of the walks and the doggies just being their cute selves. But most of all we loved coming home to our old dog looking better then when we left her, and the two younger ones acting as if we never left. Keeping your dogs in their home environment is every pet owners dream. Especially when you're on an extended vacation. Having met Christine means that dream has come true".

"My wife and I are so very happy to have been introduced to Christine (Movin' Paws). She is charming, enthusiastic, and a wonderful communicator with the dogs she cares for. I have observed her at the dog park and have been pleased to receive the pictures and videos she sends when she is with our dog Olive. Most telling, is the reaction Olive has when she enthusiastically greets Christine with unrestrained affection. We feel very comfortable highly recommending her."

"I could not be more pleased with my experience with Christine from Movin' Paws. She took fabulous care of my two little boys and kept me updated throughout the day and evening on how they were doing including pictures and videos. I felt completely at ease on my trip as I knew my boys were in the best of care. Christine is very knowledgeable and trustworthy. I was so lucky to have her to pet sit while I was gone and also that she is available for walks on a weekly basis. She is HIGHLY recommended!!!"

"We have had Christine walk our precious pup Betsey for the better part of the last year. Betsey underwent a pretty significant back injury over a year ago and Christine is SO good with her and mindful of her limitations. Christine is always so reliable, clear in her communication and client-service focused in her approach, which helps us so much. She’s also very professional and flexible in her business, which gives clients like my fiancé and I extra value! We trust Christine immeasurably, and are so fortunate to have found her as our regular dog walker!”

"Christine is reliable, professional, on time and most importantly my German Shepherd, Casey adores her. I know Casey is having a blast when she is with her because Christine sends amazing videos and pictures. I highly recommend Christine and trust her with keys to my house as well as taking care of my best friend."

"While my companions were out-of-town, Christine came to walk me every day and she even sent videos of me walking and drinking water, to my family, just to make them jealous that they weren't able to walk me! I am a fairly large chocolate Labrador and I need my loving and I need my exercise! Christine came to meet me and I instantly trusted her and relaxed at her touch. She is so reliable and came mid-day just about the time I was thinking "Man, I sure would like a walk right now." And even though a very nice friend was staying with me at night, that person had to work, so Christine gave me a mid-day break and the exercise that I needed. I sure am glad that my family loves me enough to let Christine come to visit me when they are away. Every doggie should be so lucky!"

"We always feel at ease when Christine from Movin' Paws is coming to care for our FIVE animal friends. Our black Lab loves her and is so excited to get her walk. Christine also helps us by feeding our 3 kittens who need more feedings in a day than we can always be around to take care of. They also love her, as is evident from the videos that she sends from her visits. And if you love photos and videos of your animal friends, Christine will not disappoint.
Communication is strong, care is genuine and attention to detail is continuously pleasantly surprising. My husband and I and our five animal friends wholeheartedly recommend Christine and Movin' Paws for all of your animal care needs!"

"We have trusted Christine from Movin' Paws with our furry daughter since 2012. She is always positive, responsive, and has a can-do let's figure it out attitude! With our hectic schedules, I'm not sure what we would do without her and her flexibility! We implicitly trust her with the care of our 14.5 year old labradoodle, who now over the years has accumulated some health issues. Christine continues to deliver professional service, while going above and beyond while taking care of our dog who requires additional physical support, administering medication, and love as she gets older."

"I can’t say enough wonderful things about Christine! It was always a struggle to find walking and boarding service for our little pup and I am so thrilled we found Movin’ Paws! Christine is very trustworthy and has great communication. She is always sending video and picture updates, which it so appreciated! She gives all the love and care to our pup as we would ourselves! I would highly recommend Movin’ Paws for any and all pet needs!"

"There’s a saying in LA: real friends won’t ask you to pick them up from LAX. I think the same should be said for pet care: real friends won’t ask you to check in on their pets while they’re on vacation, real friends hire a professional!
We just used Movin’ Paws for the first time (a recommendation from a real friend!) while we took an extended trip to Texas. Christine is the best. I contacted Christine about a week before our trip, and she was prompt in returning my message and answering my questions, then setting up a time to meet the pets. Christine provided care for our cats way out in South Pasadena, but when it was time to meet, Christine scheduled an appointment. That kind of commitment is worth more than gold. We went through instructions for my cats, Jo and Cookie, and entry instructions for the house, and just got to know each other.
While we were away, we received daily text updates and pictures of the cats, so we didn’t even have a chance to worry about them. She also engaged with the kitties, giving them some love! That peace of mind was truly priceless, and the reason I wouldn’t hesitate to have Movin’ Paws come in again. Also, the price was completely reasonable, so forget about tasking your pals with coming over to feed the cat or walk the dogs while you’re on vaycay, and call Movin’ Paws and leave the worries behind. Would recommend 1000 times over."

"We hired Christine after meeting her at the Beverly Hills Dog Park to watch our girl Chloe for the weekend. I have to say Chloe loves Christine which was evident from the frequent video and picture updates Christine sent us while taking care of Chloe. Christine was prompt and professional with all her responses, ensuring that our customized care for Chloe meet our needs. She was respectful of our apartment and left it in perfect condition. I would highly recommend her as we will be using her services again in the near future. Thank You!"

"Christine is the best! We have two Pitbulls who can be particular at times with who they feel comfortable with. They both love Christine. She is so thoughtful and caring with them. She stays in constant communication with us while we are away; we never worry for a moment. Christine will be our go-to sitter whenever we go away! Thank you, Christine!!! ."

"Christine is a big-hearted woman who clearly loves dogs and knows how to care for them. I met Christine at a park near my home and was impressed with how she handled the dog she was overseeing. On a lark, I asked her if she might have some thoughts on how best to solve a problem I was having: My 16-month Golden Retriever suddenly refused to go on walks. Christine instantly understood my problem and knew how to solve it. I followed her instructions and it worked! My dog is walking again. I would trust Christine with my dog in a heartbeat. She is warm, kind, and quite effervescent. When it comes to canine care, Christine is the real deal!"
- Eric Starkman
"Christine was referred to me by my best friend. I had to travel frequently this fall and needed a reliable, dependable cat sitter for my two cats. She exceeded my expectations. From running her business to being amazing to my kitties, Christine was perfect. She was timely, communicative, easy to get a hold of, and great with my babies. I feel she has a real gift with animals, and they immediately took to her. I would recommend her to everyone I know and feel blessed to have found such an amazing woman to care for my animals when needed!."

"Movin’ Paws is the best pet sitting service in Los Angeles. If you are going out of town and have to leave the furry family member behind don’t put them in a pet hotel contact Movin' Paws. Christine came by and met my Cleo and got to know her needs and personality which gave my kitty and I a chance to meet her. Christine asked questions and made excellent observations that gave me peace of mind that my kitty would be in the best hands when I was away. I received daily text, video and pictures of my baby which was wonderful and made my trip more enjoyable. I got to know how she was doing and see her happy face. My kitty is older and has some issues that most pet sitters would not want to deal with, but Christine handled them like a pro with no problem. I will defiantly be calling Movin’ Paws when I am going out of town again. I came home to a happy kitty due to the fact she could stay in her own home and get visits which did not only cover the basics of food, water and litter cleaning but love and attention. She even stuck to my cats usual schedule which was amazing. Thank you Christine! You are the best and I would recommend your service to anyone who has a furry family member."

"Christine is reliable, and a great communicator. This is very comforting when it comes to my dog Bart, and the care he needs while I'm away. She sends the best videos! It's clear that she truly cares about my dogs comfort. I feel like I'm getting first class service with Movin' Paws."

"Thank you for everything this weekend, Christine!! You really are amazing Movin' Paws! Thank you for staying with us and for caring for my sick boy with 24 hour care while I was working! For hot/cold compressing his poor butt - TMI? LOL!! Medication, videos of them too made me feel relaxed so I could work and not worry!! Truly, a huge thank you!!"

"Christine recently took care of our four animals while we were on the East Coast for several days. She was equally amazing with our 1-year-old German Shepherd and older kitties. She kept in close touch with us during the trip, and we felt completely confident that everyone was getting the attention they needed. We are so happy working with Movin' Paws and wholeheartedly recommend Christine!"

"I can't say enough about how happy we were with Christine! Christine was recommended to me by our trainer, when we needed someone to watch our quirky miniature pincher, Ruby, while we were out of town. We've only left Ruby a few times, and she typically travels with us, so we were quite nervous. Prior to meeting, Christine was incredibly thorough, which made me feel more at ease right off the bat. She's the perfect sitter for Ruby. She was phenomenal!!! She sent us adorable "pupdates" daily, sometimes multiple times which we loved! She even FaceTimed with us so that my 8 month old could see her "sister". We will absolutely be calling Christine anytime we need a sitter for Ruby!"
