About Clair

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Clair, Either me or my husband Ryan are home most of the day. He works from home and I am a medical student who studies from home often. I am currently moving to a different city every month as part of my medical training. Before I had to travel we were doing this full time and loved it! I would still like to be able to do it while we travel if we can! We currently can't have animals in our apartment, but we can come to your home to do walks and care or pick up your dog to take them to the park. I have experience with all types of dogs. We have cared for dogs of all sizes. I am more than comfortable giving different types medication or caring for dogs with special needs. I am not intimidated by large dogs! We love cats and any caged pet as well!

I am more than happy to house sit and stay in your home over night as well.

I am a medical student that loves animals and that can always use some spare cash;)

Clair and her husband were wonderful and caring hosts! Moshe came back happy and healthy, obviously well cared for. Clair was always quick to respond and provided comforting words and pictures! I felt comfortable leaving Moshe with them, and I know he had fun!! I won't hesitate leaving Moshe with them again!!!
Clair did a wonderful job sitting with our Belgian malinois. We were visiting from out of town, and she was very flexible with our travel schedule. Clair kept him calm and relaxed while in her thoughtful and loving care. She listened carefully to us as we described his routines and sent us a photo of him relaxing during his stay. There were many areas of green space just outside her door for him to safely sniff and explore. We will absolutely entrust Clair to care for our dog again if we are ever in the area!
Claire took excellent care of my dog and I would definitely use her again. I especially like that she kept in touch and sent pictures :)
This was Mikko's 2nd visit in 3 days. (See review #1) on this date Clair went above and beyond, due to car problems we experienced that delayed our picking him up. She and her husband were so accommodating. She even volunteered to pick us up and give us a ride, if we needed. Thanks Clair and Ryan.
Clair was great. Mikko's first visit was so hubby and I could attend a Cubs game and take in some Chicago Blues, on a visit to Chicago. Obviously, she made him happy and comfy. Because, at our repeat visit on Sunday, he bounced out of my car a scampered right over to her. (See review #2)
Clair was awesome, from beginning to end! Super quick message replies, great space for pet care and just an all around kind, sweet person. I felt totally at ease and comfortable leaving our two doggos with her and would do so again should the need arise!
Clair did a great job watching Riddick during our vacation. While he was excited to see us when we got back, he seemed a bit melancholy for a bit that he didn't get to see Clair.
Thank you for making my dogs stay safe and comfortable so we were able to have a worry free trip!
We had Clair watch our dog Murphy in our house for just over a week and she was fabulous! Always keeping us updated on our furry child and even sending us pictures. :)

Murphy tends to be shy around people he doesn't know, but after a few minutes with Clair, he became very comfortable with her. That shows a lot to us about who Clair is....very patient and kind as well as reliable and responsible. We would definitely use her again.

Clair was a great host - friendly, calm and easy to work with. Our dog was well cared for during our week away and hasn't shown any of the anxiety he usually has when boarded at a kennel. I think he liked having a buddy - Clair's sweet older dog.
Clair's location was very close to Libertyville. She responded to texts quickly, but didn't inundate me with updates. I was able to relax and enjoy my trip knowing our dog was happy and in good company.
We'll use Clair's help again.
Clair did a great job taking care of Bailey. He was tired and happy when we picked him up. That's the best sign! :-)
My two dogs were very well cared for by Clair. One had a health issue and she handled it well. She kept me informed through texts regularly. I would definitely use her again.
