Claire & Cyrene did a great job with my two 10 year-old Poms. We were able to leave the state for over a week and feel confident that the boys were in excellent hands.

Claire was very receptive to all my requests and the special needs of our dogs.

My boys are not athletes yet Claire was able to integrate them well into her days that included larger and more active dogs.

We subscribed to ...

Our pups had a fantastic time during their weeklong board with Claire! We were a bit nervous since this was the first boarding experience for one of our pups, but Claire assured us she would be super responsible of her energetic and sometimes escape artist habits. The pups got to play multiple times a day and balance it out with lots of snuggle sessions with the other dogs and the sitters. We love that they ...

We LOVE Claire! Macchi has never been happier and it's tough to try and take her back when she clearly wants to stay all day. Claire has fantastic communication and posts tons of great photos and videos on her Instagram. She is exceedingly professional and we would trust Macchi back there in a heartbeat. In fact, we did. Multiple times!

Adventures and plenty of snuggles!

"Ruffin' Around" is exactly what your four-pawed loved one will be doing while staying with us! I provide your pet with a structured and lengthy hike, walk, or dog park adventures. As much as it is good for them, it is great for me... A tired pup is the best behaved pup!

I have 10 yrs of experience working with dogs. I went to school to become a RVT (Registered Veterinarian Technician) and worked in ...

What Claire would like to know about your dog

I want to know a lot about your dog. I want to know feeding instructions, medication instructions, little quirks, daily routines. Good on or off leash, likes to swim? I want to know your dog just as well as you know your dog. I don't have any breed preferences or any breeds that I wont take.

When Claire watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I like to go around Lake Merritt, Lake Anza, Redwood Regional Park, Golden Gate Park, Ocean Beach. Anywhere that dogs haven't been banned in general we will go. I always make sure it is safe for our four footed friends.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Your dog can sleep nearly wherever they want. If they are used to sleeping in a crate, we can do that. If they like cuddling, like my dog we got that covered. Usually when I guest dog comes to spend the night they sleep on a dog bed at the foot of the human bed, but we customize guest by guest.

Time I'll spend with your dog
Like I mentioned before, both my partner and I work from home. I take walks, hikes, and or swimming adventures on a daily basis. If your dog is older or needs more down time, my partner will supervise while I am out on our adventures.
