About Claire

I would love to keep your dog while you visit the Boone/Blowing Rock area or if you are a local resident going out of town. I have lived in this area for 35 years. I was the Chief Financial Officer at the Mast General Store for many years. I travel in the winter so I cannot have my own dog. I love to hike so if your dog is up for a walk you will find us around Bass Lake. I only keep one dog at a time so your best friend has my undivided attention and care. I will send you an update with photo at least twice per day. I have had many dogs- mostly Irish Setters and a Daschund. I am also happy to share my knowledge of the High Country to help you have the most memorable vacation!

My dog has separation issues and usually stays with family; She does not do well with kenneling. Claire took the time to meet her twice prior to her stay, walked her many times, loved on her, and kept her in her normal routine which made for a very pleasant experience for all of us. Her pictures and updates were greatly appreciated. I liked that she takes only one dog at a time for that eliminated other problematic dog issues that could exist. I would use her again should the need arise and would highly recommend Claire as a host.

Claire was so great. I brought her my big Malamute rather last minute for a couple days. She took amazing care of him. Every day it got pics of her hikes and updates. He looked happy in every one and absolutely adored her. She worked around my schedule, even giving me directions when I needed them. I will use her again and recommend her for anyone. Especially with dogs who like to hike and exercise.

We wanted to bring our pup with us to Blowing Rock, but we could not get a dog friendly room at our hotel. The night before our trip, I found dogvacay and thought Id send Claire a message (assuming she would not respond in time given the very short notice). She responded almost immediatebly and was extremely accomodating. We were able to drop Winston off at night and pick him up in the morning so we could take him hiking. We ended up having a friend in the wedding party with a dog friendly room so he stayed with us the second night, but Claire brought all of Winston's belongings back to us at the hotel just to save us some time and effort. We had a great experience and Winston was so happy to be able to tag along in the mountains instead of being stuck in the city all weekend.
