About Claire

16 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Being an avid user of DogVacay and seeing how much fun my pup has on his stays, I decided to become a host so he can have that much fun all the time! I am a huge animal lover and have always loved and cared for dogs. I previously worked at a veterinary surgery center caring for seriously injured and sick dogs where surgeries were completed everyday. Being there to care for them before and after surgery was so gratifying, and definitely gave me a lot of experience handling all dogs, including those that were painful or weak.

I work from home so I am here all day. Dogs will not be left for more than 4 hours, but most days they will not be left at all. I have a Shih Tzu named Keyser and he loves other dogs. He is very social, but not overly energetic and won't bother any dog who doesn't want to play with him. My husband and I love spending time with him (we will with your dogs too!) and taking him on new adventures. He was a rescue and came to us very skittish, but now he loves playing, learning new tricks and accompanying us wherever we can take him.

I have a single level home with a lovely shaded backyard overlooking the Boca Ciega Bay. The house is fenced on both sides and open to the water. On our meet and greet, we'll confirm your dog is comfortable in this setting and we'll go over all the details that make your pet unique. Keyser loves to sit on the dock and watch the ducks and wildlife go by, including dolphins and manatees. Your dog will have many outdoor potty breaks and play times but will never be left in the yard unattended. I will keep you updated with emails or texts throughout your dog's stay so you can know they are having a great time! We offer a relaxed, loving home and will give your dog all the love and care they deserve!

Unfortunately no puppies under 1 year.

I am thrilled to have a place where I can leave our pup with confidence, knowing that she will be well taken care of~ And that she will have fun too! I would have Izzy stay with Claire and Keyser in a heartbeat!
Claire couldn't have been any better. Bodhi scratched her and was immediately taken to the vet and also follow-up. From photos, we could see dogs were having a ball!!
Claire was excellent! My Shih Tzu had a great time!
