Christi Phillips


The Company

Posh Paws Pet Care is locally owned and operated by Christi Knight, a native of Summerville, SC. Her furry family consists of 2 dogs and 1 cat, which you will meet later.

After many years of working with dogs in the Lowcountry as a CPDT-Certified Pet Dog Trainer, Christi saw a need for qualified, professional pet sitters and dog walkers in the Summerville area. There were a handful of “Hobby Sitters” but not many certified professionals with training in pet care.

To further demonstrate her dedication and skill as a professional pet sitter, Christi has earned the CPPS-Certified Professional Pet Sitter® designation from PSI.

In early 2017, Christi expanded her dog training business into the Pet Care Company you see today.

Mission Statement

At Posh Paws Pet Care, we believe all pets deserve to feel secure and loved in the comfort of their own home. Our Pet Care Team offers you peace of mind knowing that your fur baby will be loved and cared for by trusted professionals.

Our Pet Ambassadors

Posh Paws Pet Care


Canine Ambassador

Maya is our beautiful 10 year old Dalmatian. She is the true meaning of heart dog. I have never been so connected with a dog in my life. She has been on the cover of Lowcountry Dog Magazine and in a print ad for Dolittle’s Pet Store. In her adolescent years, she was the social butterfly at doggie daycare. She is always wiggling at the door to greet you with one of her favorite toys. Maya loves the beach, visiting the Farmer’s Market, dining out and exploring nature trails.

Canine Ambassador

Remington is our handsome liver spotted 3 year old Dalmatian. Maya says he is the epitome of pesky little brother! Nonetheless, this little boy melts the heart of everyone he meets! He is the biggest cuddler that we have ever known. Those blue eyes! They get him out of many adolescent troubles. What people don’t know when they first meet Remington is that he is deaf. Close to 30% of Dalmatians are born deaf. Deafness will not stop this bouncing bundle of energy! Remington has been trained using hand signals. He knows: Sit, Down, Stay, Come, Free, High-five and Good Boy. He has most definitely been taught No, but like a lot of adolescents, he has selective hearing with this cue. When he isn’t pestering Maya or stealing Papa’s socks, he loves going for adventure walks, people watching and playing chase.

Mocha the Cat


Feline Ambassador

Mocha is Makayla’s son and our handsome 19 year old Seal Point Himalayan cat. As mentioned earlier, he loves bird watching and sunning in the hammock with his kitty mom. Roll a ball across the floor and watch him pounce! At 19, this boy still has lots of play left in him. Mocha is a gentle giant. He is so sweet as he gently asks for his cuddles.
