About Claudia

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi my name is Claudia,
I love animals and so does my family. My family is my husband Oscar 27 years old my daughter Anastasia 7 years old my son Gabriel 5 years old and my little daughter Alexandra 3 years old.
We have a lot of energy and attention for animals. Lots of space for them here in my home both inside and outside whichever they like and as you wish. They will always have me around to play with them and make them feel like they are part of my family . We are very responsible when it comes to our pets. I always loved animals and surrounded myself with pets as long as I could remember.
I don't have any preferences in regards to breeds. I will care for all animals, they are all special in their own way.
I own an Expedition which is very helpful with little puppies and larger breeds if they need transportation.
I was trained from a vet on proper methods for administering medicine to animals.
My back yard has 6 ft fencing all around. Area includes grass, concrete, and dirt so they could chose where to play.
Dogs have the freedom to run and play in my 3/4 acre backyard. My golden retriever is also very active and can serve as a playmate.
Lastly, animals have no restrictions for sleeping indoors. My home is pet friendly.

My dog, Oliver, was very well taken care of at Claudia's pet-friendly home. She has a great set-up, and it seems like the dogs are very much a part of the family and have plenty of room, both inside and outside, in her family home and large, fenced yard. Oliver came home very tired from plenty of play-time with the other dogs. I appreciated that Claudia was very quick to respond each time I contacted her, and she kept me updated with how he was doing and also sent pictures - it looked like he was smiling in them! I also really appreciated the flexible drop-off and pick-up times. Oliver has boarded elsewhere for years, but I'll now plan to have him stay with Claudia in the future. Oliver also loved the bag-full of treats she sent home with him!

This experience was exceptional! I will never board my dogs at a kennel after this wonderful experience. Claudia took tremendous care of our dog, sent daily photos and emails providing updates. She even packed Buddy a few going away gifts we found later in this suitcase!

If I could rate Claudia and this experience higher, I would. She is fabulous! I highly recommend her to everyone.

My dog legitimately did not want to come home--she wanted to stay with Claudia and her family! Will definitely book again :)
Claudia is amazing! I'm very picky with who I trust with my senior lab but felt immediately comfortable after meeting Claudia and learning about how she runs things at her house. She sent me updates and pictures everyday and was very responsive when I had questions. I would recommend Claudia to anyone seeking a dog sitter.

Claudia is great with dogs and has a fantastic place. Highly recommended. Thanks, Claudia!
Claudia was great! She sent us updates of Molly and she looked very happy in all her photos. She was very kind and friendly. We will definitely use her again! It was nice knowing she was close to our home and that she had a a fenced in yard and rules set for the dogs for playtime, meal time and when it was time for "bed time". She was great!

Claudia was very accommodating during my dogs stay with her. She explained everything throughout the meet and greet and worked with me on drop off and pick up times. As promised, she provided daily updates and pictures, which was very comforting considering I had never left my dog with outside sitters before. I will definitely be using Claudia again!

Claudia was able to take a last minute reservation after someone else had to cancel. She sends photos and checks in everyday around six with updates. She gave my dog hid meds twice a day and I highly recommend her! Thank you Claudia!
Claudia was very helpful! We had a meet and greet and she talked me through the process as she gave me a tour. She was very knowledge of dogs and I actually learned some new stuff. Starsky had a great time (he tried to run back in the house). He became really good friends with another dog. Claudia sent me nightly updates and was easy to get in touch with her if I wanted an extra update. I highly recommend her and I plan on using Claudia again.

Claudia was wonderful! This was my 1st time leaving my 7lb Maltipoo with anyone other than family. Claudia answered all my question at the meet & greet. Calmed all my concerns and honered all my wishes. She gently handled his separation anxiety and helped him socialize with other dogs, which he was not social before. She gave daily updates and pictures wihich I loved and I was able to ask questions at any time, she always responded within minutes. Her home is very dog friendly, clean, and has a big secure back yard. I had no worries leaving my dog there! She treated him as her own. My dog was happy, well socialized, & not stressed when I picked him up. I highly recommend Claudia, I will definitely use her again!

best dog sitter ever.
Thanks to Claudia, I was able to enjoy my vacation without any worries about my sweet Gracie Lou! This was our first experience with a sitter and just knowing she wouldn't be crated was the first thing that set my mind at ease. In addition, she received lots of attention and loving (her favorite thing)! Receiving daily updates/pictures was an added bonus! I wouldn't hesitate to leave Gracie with Claudia again -- I highly recommend her!

Claudia took great care of our Daisy! She is very organized and takes great care to set up times for the dogs to play and to rest. She also sends updates and pictures each day, and is quick to respond to all emails/texts. Daisy seemed very happy and comfortable there, and I felt very good about leaving her with Claudia. We'll definitely be using her again!

Our pups loved staying at Claudia's. They had a great time, and we got several photo updates throughout the weekend. They even got a little bag of treats to take home with them when they came home. We would definitely book with Claidia again.
My dogs stayed for a week with Claudia and I was given daily updates and photos. They enjoyed their time there and we will definitely be bringing them back when we travel. She really seems to enjoy caring for dogs.
Claudia and her family did an amazing job with our boy, Rookie! She has a great yard for the dogs to play in and she sent us updates every afternoon with pictures of our boy. When I arrived to pick him up on Sunday, he was thrilled to see me of course but I could tell that he was quite happy staying with Claudia! She even sent us away with a great little bag of treats for him! Thank you Claudia! Rookie is looking forward to his next vacay with you and your family! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Claudia was an excellent choice to take care of Bella while we were away. Bella had a great time and looked very happy every day in the pictures that Claudia sent to us. Not only did she send us picture updates but she also texted us each day a little message about how Bella was doing. I was happy to know that she was being well cared for. I would use Claudia again.

Foster had a great time on his Vacay! Claudia and her family took good care of our furry family member. Claudia administered Foster's meds and sent us updates each day. Foster will definitely be going back for another Vacay!
Claudia is FANTASTIC! I felt so comfortable leaving my dog, Bowie, with her. Her house is extremely clean and everything is dog-proof. She has an enormous fenced backyard, and is very accommodating. She even made sure my pup was comfortable and soothed during fireworks! I would book with her again in a heartbeat, and as well as recommend her. Thank you so much Claudia!

Claudia, and her family, are awesome!!!
We started looking for a day sitter very early. The first person we looked at was probably more convenient, distance wise, but certainly not more accommodating. We were going on vacation. We had no way of knowing how long we would be each day, seeing the attractions. The first person would not be flexible and told us if we wanted past 6 pm, we could leave her there over night and get her the next morning. There was no way we wanted to be separated from her over night, when she could sleep with us. We would have had to leave the attraction early or not even go because we had a time restraint.
Claudia was the bomb!! Time was not an issue. Drop her off when we needed and pick her up when we could or were ready. Just let her know when we were on our way, each day. And on Sunday, she explained that she wished to go to church, if possible. We were happy to give her the time! Our last night there put it all to the test when we were to visit an attraction with a 2 hr wait in line. We decided to go back later and try again. The line was MUCH shorter but we still didn't get finished with the paid tour until 10 pm! With the distance we had to drive, it was about 10:45 before we picked up our Bella. Mrs. Claudia was always kind, it wasn't ever a problem because, as she put it, "This is what I do." She allowed us to enjoy our vacation without worrying about Bella. She updated us regularly and even sent pictures!! Def recommend Mrs. Claudia!!

Claudia was great to work with! Daily updates of what Layla was getting into and having fun with. Claudia was very helpful with quickly contacting me when another host cancelled last minute, a stressful situation was turned into a non-issue with how great of a host she was. I have already booked Layla's next stay with Claudia and have no reservations that she will be well taken care of. Though Layla is older she still has a knack for getting into things when no one is around (separation anxiety is the best guess) and therefore I usually have to crate her :(. Claudia give a lot of time and attention to the dogs that stay with her and Layla is not really left alone so there is no worry! I cannot say enough, if Claudia is available, I know where Layla is staying :)

Claudia was excellent! Her place has the perfect setup for dog watching and my dog definitely seemed to enjoy his stay there. She was very flexible with pick up and drop off times and was great about giving updates with pictures. Will be using Claudia (if available) next time I go out of town

Our dog Gizmo is a little "special", he is quite an anxious dog and it's not easy to find the right place to leave him while we are out of town.
Gizmo did great at Claudia's house. When I picked him up he looked relaxed and at home. Claudia also send my daily updates and pictures, which made me feel less anxious about leaving him. I will definitely use Claudia again.

Claudia Z was a fabulous host! She sent us updates and photos of our two dogs and seemed to genuinely enjoy having them. She also walked them and played with them. We will definitely use her again!!
I booked Claudia for a last minute daycare stay. She was available and quickly responded back to me! She has a dog of her own and at the time of her stay had some pups with her already. She was INCREDIBLY accommodating to Roxie's needs and was attentive to her separation anxiety. I would definitely recommend her again and will be looking for future daycare/overnight stays with her again.

On top of her being incredibly caring, loving, and attentive towards Roxie; she even provided a tiny bag of dog treats at the end of my stay which was an absolute surprise! Thank you Claudia for having Roxie over!

The experience was wonderful, my dog came back happy with a wagging tail and goodies . Claudia was awesome and often sent pictures of my dog during my vacation. I feel very comfortable with leaving my dog with her and I will definitely go back to her the next time I need a dog sitter. :). Thank you Claudia!!!
