About Claudia

Hello! Thanks for checking out our profile. We have a 2 year old border collie and two fenced acres with lots of nice shade and a dog door to the kitchen. We spend hours hiking with or throwing the ball to our dog who loves to run and run. We participate in Dog Vacay for fun - it is not our living and as such we will never host more than one family's dogs at a time. We want this to be intimate and deeply nurturing, not a doggy daycare. This is our home - your dog will be on our couch and in our bed. We really enjoy getting to know dogs and including them in our extremely dog-friendly house and life. We take the care of your dog very seriously and treat each dog like a member of our family. Dogs rule the roost over here - to tell you the truth, it's pretty much a dog party at our house every single day.

This is the 1st of 3 preliminary visits before an extended stay. We have only left our 5 year old companion & family member once before, overnight with friends for 2 nights. We have been very concerned and thought we would have to leave him at a boarding facility.

Claudia's Vacay is 2 acres of doggie heaven. She and her husband, Chris, take only one "guest" at a time. They have a very sweet sheperd about the same size as our Aussie. Claudia is warm, welcoming, kind, loving, and sensitive to the "guest" and owner's concerns.

I am so relieved to know Hoku will have a wonderful time when we must be gone and cannot take him with us.

We had several one day visits with Claudia and Chris. This stay was our biggie. Ollie stayed with them for 4 days and had a wonderful visit. We received plenty of pictures and updates from C and C. and Ollie now has a best friend in SVP, their sweet border collie. It was so nice to be able to focus on our son's wedding without worrying about Ollie. We're so thankful we found them! Will certainly look forward to visiting them again!!

Claudia and Chris are just fantastic. They are perfect for Ollie as is their border collie SVP. So attentive and very informative both throughout the day and when I picked him up. Huge yard to play in and lots of love and care! Just what we were looking for.

You realize how people really are when things don't go as planned. My dog had a broken toe nail that he had been treated for at the vet and was told would be fine. Of course it would get worse and was bleeding when he ran around like like crazy when he was with SVP. Claudia took lots of pictures and told me what was going on. I offered to come back right away and apologized, but she told me it was okay and could handle it until I came back, which was very late the next day. She totally took care of Tux, with great communication, pictures & love. I thought I had already found the right place for Tux, now I knew I really had. "Don't worry, I got this, relax, just had to let you know". You pay more for the one on one care, and man, you are so happy you did when it is needed! Fantastic!

So happy to have found such great care for my dog! He gets super excited every time we pull up to Chris and Claudia's house. They are amazing with him - lots of exercise and play. The huge fenced yard is also a big plus. I highly recommend Chris and Claudia, and plan to use them exclusively for dog sitting in the future.

Claudia is Outstanding! From her Meet & Greet procedure and the time she takes to get to know you & your dog , you know she is as serious as someone watching your beloved family member should be... and is. She and he husband are fantastic, her dog SVP is absolutely marvelous, their house terrific, but that yard ...... Two, count them two acres fenced to run around in and play..... Out-Flippin'-Standing!!!! She is so caring and professional that we were at ease quickly and finally felt comfortable leaving our Border Collie Tux with them. She really knows dogs. They, as a team, are so above and beyond what most people on Dogvacay are. If you are reading this, feel fortunate that you have found someone who will care for your dog as much as you do! This place is that good!

We couldn't have asked for a better place for our lab sucia to stay while we were on vacation for 2 weeks. Claudia and her husband were so attentive and tended to Sucia's every whim. They sent daily photos and updates which helped ease the anxiety of missing our girl. We had no worries at all and Sucia had a blast with their dog SVP. The nice big yard is great for exercise and playtime and their home so warm and inviting. The perfect place for your pup to stay!!

Our dog had the best possible experience wth Claudia and her husband. They went our of their way to make his stay a good one. They are both dog lovers and it was clear from the way they greeted Boone and us as well. We love our new friends and Boone is over the moon about them as well. Thank you for relieving the stress in leaving a loved pet behind!

My dog, Penny, came home exhausted from having a great time on her play date at Claudia's. Claudia and her husband were very attentive to Penny's needs and made sure that she had all the attention she needed. Penny will be staying with Claudia next week over the holidays and I feel very comfortable and confident that Penny will be treated like one of their own. Claudia and her husband are a DogVacay gem here in Gig Harbor!

Claudia was so wonderful to our pups. They loved having another dog to play with in her yard. They got daily walks and hours of playtime in the yard. They also have a tendency to skip meals when we leave them with a sitter, and she was nice enough to mix some tuna in their dry food and fix that problem in no time.
Most of all, I was so appreciative of her flexibility and willingness to help. We left out dogs with her while planning a wedding, and Claudia was more than happy to pick the dogs up from the church, and this helped our schedule out SO MUCH.
Would absolutely love to have our pups with her again, she was so kind and thoughtful.
