Dog Boarding
Justine, 16-01-2022
I boarded my 2 huskies Solomon and Sophie at Claire’s for 9 days whilst I was away. As they are bigger sized than the usual huskies, I was concerned whether Claire could handle them on leash. As I expected, Solomon tested Claire’s strength on the first walk and Claire handled them with experience. As my doggos were on BARF, Claire kindly agreed to help me continue them on BARF although the food must have filled up her entire refrigerator. Claire was conscientious in asking for a video as to how to prepare their breakfast and updated us on their well-being whilst we were away. She even allowed me to install my CCTV at her premises so we could check in on them without troubling her, as well as a doggy gate as huskies are well known escape artists. As my doggos are grass trained, Claire walked them twice a day mornings and evenings with a pee break in between. Claire was very accommodating to my schedule on both drop off and pick ups too. As it can easily be seen, I’m a very protective doggy mommy but Claire was nothing but accommodating throughout. She replied to my messages promptly and there were no issues whatsoever. The doggos came back in great shape and I’m sure they were glad I didn’t board them at a boarding house with many other dogs that the pet sitter had no time to give individual attention to. I interviewed many dog boarders before I chose Claire. Most gave me the impression they did not have the time for my doggos and communication would be patchy. Claire did not. Did I mention Claire does only one boarding at a time? And her job allows her to be with your doggos at home most of the time. Did I also mention Claire keeps a very clean house? These are all very important factors to the well-being of our doggos. I would not hesitate to recommend Claire to board your dogs big and small. Certainly I will try to board Sophie and Solomon with Claire first on future trips. Thanks Claire! We missed our doggos every day but you made our trip enjoyable knowing they were at least in your responsible hands. Two thumbs up!

Hi, We used a dog sitter for the first time and encountered a lot of the caretaker. We chose Andy because he has a great knowledge of dogs and dog care. It also has a house suitable for this and allows the dog great freedom. I recommend Andy's dog sitter services. he was able to adapt easily to our 8 month old Shiba Inu who was still very energetic and sometimes unruly heads. He even knew how to give us advice to facilitate our return home and future education. Many thanks to Andy and his wife for their kindness towards animals. Julien
