A Message From Our Pack Leader

Thank you for taking the time to learn about our services! We genuinely care about the service we provide, we operate under the ethical standards of The Golden Rule, do unto others as you’d have them do unto you. Treating people and animals kindly is the only right way.

So, being kind, reliable and honest are all keys to our success. I have worked very hard in my life to get to this point so, I respect the time of hard-working people and aim not to waste it. Building a dog walking company so that people never have to choose another dog walker again, is one of our main goals. If we are not your first dog walker, we sure aim to be your last.

As we grow our team of employees, we hope to be an asset to you and your dogs overall well-being and wellness. If we aren’t the best we’re last, so rest assured we are always aiming for the stars to make you happy, comfortable and 100% satisfied or we will do whatever is in our power to make it right.

FOUNDER, OPERATOR, OWNER​

Christina’s love & passion for animals brought her to become a professional and certified pet-care expert. Her professional training started back in 2005 and she continues to re-educate herself as time passes just in case new issues or findings in safety arise. 

Animals, dogs especially, have been a part of her life since she was born. Always owning pets herself, Christina knew the difficulty it was finding reliable, trusting, loving pet care. Able to empathize with other pet parents in addition to her professionalism, Beach Pupps was brought to light in 2015. 

Along her journey in professional animal care, Christina earned several certifications benefiting pets in emergency situations. Whether big or small, furry or scaly, she has real hands-on experience with a wide range of different animals.

By holding high professional and personal ethical standards for your pets care, Christina founded Beach Pupps to guarantee your dog receive the safest, most untypical walk around the block service available.
