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!

Claire takes great care of our very active and loving boy Copper. He always comes back happy and tired!
Our lab Royce had a great stay with Claire during the past week. Claire sent us videos of Royce playing with her dog and her other doggie guests. Royce seemed completely at ease and it gave us peace of mind that he was being so well cared for while we were away. We will certainly look to Claire when we travel again.

Claire was absolutely incredible! This was first time I left Mocha with anyone and I was admittedly nervous to do so, but she made me feel at ease. Her experience with animals immediately showed the moment I walked in the house. While we were gone, she sent pictures and videos that showed Mocha constantly playing with other dogs or snuggling on the couch. Claire even gave her a bath and trimmed her nails! I couldn't have left Mocha in better hands!
