About Claire

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
(Formerly: Williamsburg Pup Club. We moved!)

Hello! I'm Claire, and my partner Jeff and I have 7 years' experience caring for dogs together. We LOVE all the dogs we meet, and showering them with that love is one of our favorite things to do. We have plenty of space for pups with extra energy to burn some off. Our regular haunts are Hillside Dog Park, Prospect Park during off-leash hours, local dog-friendly bars, and, of course, the streets--our walks are long and frequent! Our dog Otis is a Plott Hound mix who loves to play but also always knows when his buds need space or a calm cuddle session.

I often work from home and spend the rest of my work-week in a dog-friendly office a short walk away. While working I always try to understand the pups' needs as well as I can. When a ball is dropped by my feet, I throw it. When a nap or a prolonged scanning out the window of Court Street is needed, I respect it. We take frequent walks and make daily dog park visits (unless your pup is more of an introvert/apartment play kind of a woofer). I'm attentive, loving and energetic, which I think is all a pup ultimately needs (well, that, and plenty of things to chew on and eat, which we also have).

Please feel free to message me with any questions. We look forward to meeting all your wonderful woofs!

Claire is the best! Highly highly recommended. Our pug Harriet has the best time at her house, and her dog Otis is the absolute sweetest.
Eggs had a great stay with Claire and Otis. Claire is quick to reply to messages, and she sent pictures of the dogs together. A really experience all around!
Claire is super easy to deal with. She also comes across as very knowledgable and responsible as she gave our dogs time to interact and make sure they were a good match. We also liked the fact that her work hours are somewhat flexible and that she and her fiancee could also take Jack to work.
Also, her apartment was very spacious, clean and Jack-proofed, which was awesome.

We had no worries while we were away, thanks to Claire's updates and pictures. Whenever we travel abroad again, we will make sure to check her availability and book another stay! Jack came home very happy and pleased, and the whole experience was very enjoyable for us. We strongly recommend her.

It was the first time using DogVacay and I felt so comfortable leaving my dog with Claire. She checked in daily with photos and updates.
Claire, Jeff and Otis were wonderful, I couldn't recommend them more. Otis was very gentle and kind to our little pug Harriet (even when she was jumpy and annoying.) We loved getting pictures from Claire of the pair playing and snuggling in their beautiful apartment. We would leave Harriet with them again in a heartbeat.

Claire was WONDERFUL. Roxy had the best time on her dog vacay. Claire was so thoughtful to our needs and sent us pictures daily. I would absolutely use Claire again. Five stars across the board.
Claire is amazing. Our dog Bradley had a health issue while he was with her. She took him to the vet right away and was a total pro about giving him the medicine prescribed. She and Jeff were so kind to Bradley, and Otis was an awesome playmate. We were gone for over a week and were nervous about leaving our pup for so long, but he could not have been in better hands, and came home happy and healthy. I highly recommend Claire!

Claire and Otis (the dog) Are great hosts! Wyatt got so much love and attention he forgot about us! Claire was responsible and sent daily photo updates. Claire is a genuine person and animal lover. She is understanding, flexible, and went above and beyond when our flights were delayed. Thank you Claire!

Claire was very responsive and accommodating when we made our fairly-last-minute reservation. She has an adorable and sweet brindle dog, Otis, that looks *just like* our puppy - I swear they are long-lost siblings. A couple hours after we left, Claire told us that Otis and our puppy became best friends and played together nonstop the whole time we were gone. Over the weekend, she periodically sent us some photos of the two of them playing and laying down next to each other, tired and happy, which helped us relax and know that our pup was in good hands. We would absolutely recommend Claire to anyone! The experience couldn't have been better.

Claire, Jeff and Otis were terrific hosts! They were easy to get in touch with, flexible, thoughtful, and sent great photos while I was away. I needed to add days on to Bonnie's stay at the last minute and they were very responsive and understanding. I know Bonnie misses playing with Otis already. Claire will be my first choice next time I need to leave town without the Bons.

Claire and her pup Otis we're absolutely the most incredible hosts anyone could hope for! We were so sad to leave Zeus when our family went to Germany for 10 days over the Christmas holiday, but in all honesty I think it was the best gift we could have ever given our dog Zeusy. He was taken care of like one of their own and had a playmate/new doggy BFF for the whole 10 days. The apartment was open and very pet friendly, no clutter and lots of open space. I could legitimately tell Zeus was kinda bummed and missed his new friends for a few days when he got home. I would use Claire to watch Zeus anytime, what an awesome host!!

Claire was fantastic! She was incredibly easy to get in touch with before and during the time we left Ruby with her, and she kept us up-to-date with pictures every couple of days. Ruby spent two weeks with Claire, her boyfriend & roommates, and especially Otis, and she was so sad to leave when we came to pick her up!

Claire is a dream dog sitter. Ubu and her pup Otis got along so well, and the frequent photos she sent proved it! I was lucky to have found someone so lovely and accommodating especially since it was over the Christmas/NY holiday period. I miss-calculated Ubu's dog food and when it ran out she happily replaced it. I would have no hesitation recommending Claire and hope to use her again in the future!

Claire was great - super accommodating and friendly. Izzy came home exhausted from all the playing with Otis. The pictures along the way were super cute and reassuring. Definitely would recommend her to anyone.
Haley had an AMAZING time with Claire! And everything was perfect, I was able to contact Claire whenever I wanted and she sent me photo updates of Haley's stay every couple of days. Haley also got along famously with Otis, Claire's dog... so much so that we think she found herself her very first boyfriend! Adorable! now we may have to arrange regular 'dates' b/c of this new found puppy love!
