About Claire

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
"Ruffin' Around" is exactly what your four-pawed loved one will be doing while staying with me! I provide your pet with a structured and lengthy hike/walk/swim daily. As much as it is good for them, it is great for me... A tired pup is the best behaved pup!

Recently unemployed from a high stress Executive Assistant position... I am returning to my doggie pals for some fun in the sun!

I went to school to be an RVT (Registered Veterinary Assistant) then an opportunity came into my life to quickly switch gears. Happy I took it, learned a lot but I am ready to get back to those wagging tails.

My funnest job was working at a doggie daycare in Emeryville and my dream has always been to open one of my own.

I have a high energy pup named Devvyn, if we are not walking around Lake Merritt we are hiking or swimming at the dog beach. We love to go with our other pup friends! She is very socialized, gets along great with every type of dog whether it is her chihuahua friends or her Great Dane friends.

I cater to any dogs needs, big or small, young pup or the older and wiser, high energy dog or the ones that like to just sunbathe.

I am a very active person who love the outdoors. I have a huge backyard, great for sunbathing dogs and enough room to throw a ball.

I am excited to have dogs over for a day, or to join us for our outdoor activities or to come and have a slumber party! I make excellent frozen peanut butter treats!

*I am unable to offer boarding services to unaltered dogs.*

Amenities and activities at our 5 star resort include:
- 2 one hour walks/hike everyday
- Baths as needed (no extra charge)
- Longer hikes on weekends
- Plenty of TLC, after plenty of Ruffin' Around!

The level of exercise and outdoor time given by Claire is exactly what every dog deserves. She exudes warmth and love towards animals, which is evident from the start. We trust her with our dog and will be more than happy to use her again when traveling!
