About Clanci

59 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Video Chat Empty Nesters

We charge $43 a night for each dog.

My husband and I, a writer and production editor in educational publishing, office in our home, so we are home most of the time to give attention to and care for dogs. We share our Skype and Apple Face Time with our dogs and their owners during their stay. We can walk the dogs in our neighborhood park, and we have a large, grassy, tick- and flea-free backyard to play yard games with the dogs so that they receive daily exercise. We also allow the dogs to be free in the house with us without being caged. We encourage snuggling beside us on the sofa for a nap while we read or work. We do not smoke, and so the dogs in our home will not be subjected to second-hand smoke.

We offer routine services such as walking, playing, and taking dogs for checkups as part of the activities of pet ownership. Therefore, our flat rate includes all these services and more. We do not charge extra for them.

We have been dog owners most of our lives, and so we are accustomed to and welcome doggie love. Our motto is to care for them, spoil them, and send them home to their owners—just like grandchildren.

Clanci and her husband did a wonderful job with Juno! This was her first time away from us, and Clanci made sure she had everything she needed to be comfortable and happy. Updates and photos were provided as well.
Thank you very much - highly recommended!
Clanci watched our little Bogey for the weekend and took great care of him. She updated me on how he was doing and helped me to feel at ease. This experience was like a home away from home for him and we would definitely let her watch him again! Thank you Clanci
Clanci was perfect for our Labradoodle, Charlie's first sleepover. Made a few new friends and had a grand time running and playing with neighborhood squirrels Very well cared for and will differently use Clanci again. Thank you so much...
Clanci was a wonderful hostess to our dog Luci for 51/2 days. If I could, I would rate her a 6. Luci felt at home almost immediately. Clanci sent us several emails indicating that Luci was comfortable and having fun. The only thing I was concerned about was that she would not want to come home. I hope Luci can be Luci's second home. Sam
Clanci was wonderful with our Great Dane Made him feel at home from day #1 .
Clanci and her husband are a wonderful couple that I would have watch my dog again! They watched Nado, our German Shepherd (90lbs) for 2 weeks last minute in July. We are so glad we found them!

During his stay we received email updates with pictures. Nado played in their backyard and they took him for walks around the neighborhood. We received many photos of Nado being "Nado" in their house, such as having his nose in the refrigerator. They welcomed him as part of the family. Nado was also on antibiotics for an ear infection and Clanci had no hesitation giving his pills to him.

I highly recommend this couple to watch your dog and will be using them again in the future!
Clancy is the best host! Frida loves going there.
Clanci did an AMAZING job making my fearful dog fear comfortable and right at home. Definitely recommended.
Couldn't have been any better! Clanci immediately put me (and my pup) at ease. Scotch had a great visit and we really appreciated the daily updates. We look forward to using her again in the near future!
Clanci was AMAZING with our two english bulldogs! They can't wait to visit again :)
Clanci and her husband are amazing with our 2 giant puppies. Their love of animals is immediately apparent upon meeting. It seems that they love our dogs as much as we do (which is a LOT!) We don't plan on leaving the guys with anyone else after having two wonderful experiences with Clanci :)
This was my first DogVacay experience. I needed a place for my dog over Thanksgiving last minute. I found Clanci and immediately sent a request. She responded very quickly, within minutes. We set up a meeting to make sure my dog would fit in, feel comfortable, and get along with her. The meeting went well and she and her husband spent time with my dog, ensuring he felt comfortable with them. 4 days later I dropped him off and headed out of town 5 days. When my incoming flight arrival was questionable due to weather Clanci assured me there was enough food and he would be welcome for another day if I didn't make it in on time. Such a relief! Ace settled in and Clanci kept me updated on his mood, behavior, and activities. I was happy to hear that he was eating and pestering them same as he does me, for attention, balls, and outside time. He had freedom to come inside and out using the doggie door, which he loved. He was happy to see me and be home but I could tell he wasn't stressed out and had a great vacation. I will certainly be taking him back next time I head out of town! :)
Our pet's stay with Clanci was wonderful! Sasha did not want to leave and had developed a bond with the family almost immediately! It will be difficult for any other host to care for our Pup in the future. She treated Sasha, just as if she was her own and we truly are grateful.
This was Chelsea's second visit with Clanci. You can tell that they love dogs and I feel good about leaving Chelsea with them.
Clanci was great with Chelsea. I could tell that she loves dogs and Chelsea seemed to receive a lot of attention. We will definitely use Clanci again.
Bogey & I both loved Clanci...not only is she a lovely person she cares for your animals like her own! She has a wonderful backyard and a calmness my "fur" baby needs...I just wished we had found her years ago...thanks Clanci!
Wonderful wonderful wonderful! Frida was very comfortable and had loads pf fun. Ill be using her again!!!!!!!!
Clanci and her husband showed our Husky the time of his life! He was so well taken care of. We are very attached to our little guy, so Clanci gave us regular updates on his activities. We will definitely use her again, if she'll have Jeter back.
If you're looking for another dog lover to take care of your dog, this is it. Wrote to me to report how things were going. Highly recommended.
Clanci and her husband were amazing with our little Pumpkin. We left Pumpkin with them for 4 days while we went for vacation. Clanci was sending me pictures and updates about Pumpkin every day, so I didn't have to worry about her and could enjoy every moment of our trip. I highly recommend them for everybody who wants to keep their doggies safe with this lovely and wonderful couple.
Clanci was absolutely wonderful with our two dachshunds! They are only 9 months old and we have never been away from them so we were worried and anxious. Clanci put all of our fears at ease. We went for a meet-n-greet before they stayed and the pups took right up with her. She showed them how to use the doggy door and they had it down in a couple of minutes. While we were on vacation she sent us daily updates, sometimes more than one, on how their day was going, what they were doing, etc. It made us feel good to hear all of the stories about them playing so hard in her large and very secure backyard. She was really great about keeping them on their regular schedules and routines in order to make them feel a sense of normalcy. We were waiting to see how they reacted when we went to pick them up after a week away from them. They were super excited to see us, but they were also still running around playing and having a fun time. That meant a lot to us because it told us they were well taken care of and loved and not just racing out the door to get away from a bad experience. Clanci is definitely the right choice to take care of your fur babies! We couldn't be more pleased and will definitely use her services again.
Clanci has a very nice home and if your animals are calm and need a relaxing place to go, this is the place. It is quite and serene and Clanci takes care of all your dogs needs. One thing I really liked was she only takes animals from one family at a time. Maya and Leah and a great time with her, and if we ever need to board again, we will definitely leave them with her!
Clanci and her husband were delightful upon meeting our babies and us. When we returned to pick them up, they were so calm and relaxed. Very nice to pick up happy dogs.
Clanci made Barkley feel right at home, took extra care administering his pills. Barkley was not in a rush to go home when I picked him up. They have a large private yard, great foe a large dog like Mr. B.
I was exceptionally pleased with the service my dog had with Clanci. I was updated daily on how my dog was doing. I was stress free during my trip knowing that my dog was being completely taken care of. My dog was very happy with Clanci and appeared to be even unaware that I was even away. Clanci cares deeply about animals and it shows. This program is lucky to have people like Clanci available for her services. Clanci treated my dog as if she was one of her own. Very impressed with Clanci.
I would highly recommend Clanci to anyone who wants their dog taken care of. If the rating had six starts, Clanci would have got all six.
Our dogs had a great time here. Great hosts. Will board here again!
We had to leave on short notice due to a death in the family and Clanci very graciously accepted Zoe and again took very good care of her. I think my Zoe considers this her second home and always seems happy to be there.
We had to leave our dog for 20 days and I was very apprehensive about it, but Clanci and Kell took such good care of her. They cuddled and loved her and played with her. They emailed pictures and updates about all the funny things she was doing every few days. When we picked her up, she was glad to see us, but there was no doubt in my mind that she was well cared for and received lots of love and attention. We will definitely leave her with Clanci again.
We left our dog with Clanci on Saturday morning and picked her up Sunday evening. She had never stayed there before and when we arrived to pick her up, she was glad to see us and greeted us but then went on playing as usual. She evidently was very comfortable and content being there. I was very happy with Clanci and her care and will definitely use her again.
Clancy and her husband were incredible hosts to our dogs. They were very engaging and fun my pets we so happy to see me , and when we got home they were so calm. So I know they were loved and played with. I will defiantly be using then again, soon.
Clanci was very prompt and made everything easy. It was a very loving home and I had no problem leaving my dog with them. Definitely recommend!
