About claudia

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have 20+ years experience taking care of dogs in my home. I am at home all day and will provide lots of attention to your sweetie. I have poodles/labradoodles who are very social. Boarders and my dogs wind up on beds and the couch in the living room to lounge. I have a large doggie play room if weather outside is inclement.

Claudia is great!! Very accommodating!
Claudia maintains a fine set-up for the small to medium size dog. She is a real "dog lady" -- loves dogs and it is obvious. Our terrier came home happy and healthy. A very positive experience.
As always, Claudia was great!
Claudia is the best. Our dog always seems happy and full of life when we get back from our trip!
Always happy to have Claudia watch our babies!
Claudia is a Godsend! My dog Fiona is able to socialize with her dogs and her boarders--rather than stay at a kennel and she lives close to us, which makes it convenient.
Well I have used dogvacay in the past in Houston, but this was first time in Albuquerque and I can guarantee I will not use same host again. I can tell my dog's expression (like most pet parents) - all her pictures she was unhappy. When I pulled up to pick her up, I heard the host yelling at her inside. Then nothing was told to me about her being sick - I get home and she has major diarrhea. Hundreds of dollars at vet bill, two medications, weeks later, she is finally back to normail. Never again,
Claudia was wonderful. Our pups had a great time. Her home is safe and comfortable. Highly Recommend.
We just picked up our dogs from Claudia's after a one night stay over! Our dogs, Lola and Molly had a great time and came back home relaxed and happy. I feel so relieved knowing my husband and I can leave town and our babies are in great hands with Claudia. We have found the perfect dog sitter for us!
This was our first time using DogVacay and it worked out great. We first had a meet and greet with Claudia and her adorable dogs seemed like perfect playmates with our pup, Max.

We enjoyed all the pictures Claudia sent during Max's stay, and he seemed to have a great time :). I also appreciate that Claudia was very flexible on the dropoff and pickup times.
Our experience was fantastic. Claudia loved our puppies, Augie and D'Marco. They were so happy when we picked them up and you could tell they had enjoyed their DogVacay stay at Claudia's home.
I was so happy to find Claudia to take care of Roxy, especially in that I had never left my dog before, she put my mind at ease and was so warm and friendly. Roxy had a great time bonding with her and her dogs. I will certainly have Roxy stay with her again in the future!
Third time Boo has stayed with Claudia and her poodles. Once again, he came back happy and healthy. Claudia obviously treats Boo like her own and I will continue leaving Boo with her whenever I have to go out of town...
Second time Boo has stayed with Claudia and everything went great. He obviously has a great time (calm/slept for 18 hours) after I picked him up and he has bonded with her...
Daisy had a good time with Claudia. Loved the pictures she sent to us of Daisy with her little dogs!
We are so pleased we have found Claudia! This was a much better experience for our dog than a kennel - she came home happy and not distant like after a kennel stay. Our kids enjoyed seeing pictures during our vacation as well. It was great to have a meet and greet and see that Claudia and her pups are so comfortable with and enjoy their boarding friends. We will definitely be back!
Claudia was very warm and obviously a dog lover. Howie was as happy as he has ever been when we've returned. We will definitely use her again!
This is our 6th or 7th time using Claudia in the past 8 months and there is a reason we always come back! We feel at ease that our dog is safe, being well taken care of and a happy dog on her vacay. I love the email with pictures and a description of our dog while there; we always look forward to that! Thanks Claudia, 5 stars from our family!
Peter had another lovely stay at Claudia's. She is awesome to work with and cares for the dogs. We always find her a pleasure to work with and don't stress now when we leave Peter at home.
Boo spent 6 nights with Claudia and her poodles and had a great time. She is great with dogs and easy to work with. She responds quickly and sent pictures and updates as promised. I would leave Boo with her again without hesitation...
As first time puppy parents we were nervous about where to leave our furry baby. We found Claudia and loved the reviews; she was able to book us a day before we had to leave town! The moment we met her we were at ease. You can tell she loves dogs and would treat your dog like her own. She sent us pictures while we were gone and she was available when we called to check up on our puppy. Our lab loved one of her toys so much she let us take it home which was very sweet! We wl definitely use Claudia in the future :)
Claudia was a great host for Peter. From the moment we arrived I knew he was in safe hands. She welcomed him into her pack as did her dogs. I really appreciated her thoughtfulness and the questions she asked when we dropped him off. I'm sure Peter will be back again in the future.

Thank you so much Claudia!
Flexible and updated with pictures during trip.
Claudia is very good with Riley!! Thank you so much for taking such good care of her.
Claudia was so very accommodating, especially with our initial "meet and greet". Her dogs and ours got along great and we'll most certainly use her services again.
Claudia was very friendly and we were comfortable with her during the meet and greet. We knew our dog would be well cared for while we were out of town. Enjoyed seeing the emailed pictures.
Claudia was wonderful with my Riley. This was my first experience with this service and I will definitely call on Claudia again.
This was my first time using DogVacay, and I really picked a great host. Claudia went above and beyond to make sure my 2 puppies were comfortable and had what they needed. The Meet and Greet, scheduling/reservation, and drop off went perfectly. Claudia is highly recommended and is now my "puppy sitter."
Claudia was awesome! She is so grounded, funny and real, she made Marco feel right at home with her adorable poodles and a litter of baby pupper Poodles!
Plus, Claudia sent me a couple of pics showing Marco having a great time. I could tell he was having fun and feeling right at home.
Thanks Claudia!! I will definitely call you to watch Marco again. You get five stars plus from me.
