About Claudia

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have been taking care of animals my whole life! Primarily caring for my own for 10 years. I currently have 2 Medium Size dogs who are both the sweetest on earth! My youngest (but who I've had longer) is almost 2 and her name is Oletta. I rescued her from a family that had her separated from the mother at a month old. Oletta has gone through a lot of health mishaps but she is currently a very healthy and happy pup! And more recently, my partner and I adopted a 2-3 year old from Alachua County Humane society. She had some health/skin issues, but nothing we didn't think we could handle. She's recovering and happier than ever. She's very patient with Oletta and treats her like her own baby. The relationship is very sweet. Enough about my dogs, we're here for yours! I felt it was necessary to give a little background on mine just to let you know what my household looks like. Both of my ladies are very excited to be around other dogs. Although I welcome all ages of dogs, I would like it to be known that Oletta does have ALOT of energy and she can be a lot for older dogs to deal with.

Another reason is to give you some brief information on what I'm capable of handling when it comes to caring for your pet. Don't be concerned if your pet is ill or going through a hard time, I'm here to help! Along with taking care of my own pets I've also worked to volunteer my time with animal rescues and care for friends/family animals.

My house is a nice size, with a large completely fenced in yard. I have a low maintenance yard with mostly ground cover and natural fallen coverage, so all dogs who come here have free roam of the area to play wherever and however they wish. I have a spare bedroom that can be used for any variety of things. If your dog is food aggressive or doesn't like sharing sleeping space at night she/he is welcome to have the room to her/himself. If you'd rather she/he have full roam of the house, that is also an option. I'm very flexible and willing to work with you. All I ask from you is full transparency about your dog. Do they have aggression problems? Are they on flea/worm medicine? Are they up to date on vaccines? Do they have health issues I need to know about to better take care of them?

It currently says I am unavailable Mondays, this is only true because I am unable to do anything in the morning but I am available after 4pm. No matter what, always contact me if you need something, whether or not it says I'm available.

I look forward to looking after your dog in the future. If you have any needs or special requests please feel free to contact me!

Claudia is one of the most responsible and caring pet-owners I've ever met! When she first got Oletta (her dog of about two years), Oletta had horrible skin issues. Claudia put aside so much time, energy, and money into figuring out what was wrong with her dog while balancing her own life, school, and work. I admired her determination and resolution in figuring out what was wrong with and treating her baby, as naturally and without chemicals as possible.
In addition to the selflessness and love I've Claudia use with her own and others pets, she is a remarkably responsible person, able to balance multiple responsibilities without breaking a sweat. She is well-spoken and direct.

Claudia is clean, kind, smart, caring, and trustworthy person. Anyone would be beyond fortunate to have her helping them with a pet.

Claudia Gaudino is a devoted dog mother. She is always trying to fugire out ways to make her dogs life more enjoyable. I also have a dog that Claudia has watched for me and she has developed a very loving and caring relationship to her. Claudias knowledge on dogs is vast and she is always trying to learn more and more about care taking for her animal. She is emotionally in tune and aware of the dogs around her and their needs. I would trust her with my pet any day.

Claudia was absolutely great! Her place is ideal for active dogs, with a large fenced in area for play time. She was great with my dog and her dogs were very friendly and sweet :) I highly recommend Claudia.
Claudia was amazing, she was extremely communicative sent pictures of Bailey daily to show how my pup was doing. She was very patient, as I was running late to pick Bailey up. When she gave Bailey a bath, her coat was nicer than I ever seen before. I would definitely keep in touch with Claudia and use her services again!
Claudia was super great! Both of her dogs are sweet and got along well with my dog, there's a yard for them to play together in, and overall my dog had a great stay. Would definitely book again!
