Shasta spent 3weeks with Claire and her husband. She had a wonderful time and I did not worry for one minute about her care or safety. Claire is a very gentle caretaker and I would definitely recommend her for dog sitting. Shasta misses both of them but she came home a very happy and healthy dog.

Thank you :) We had a great time with Shasta, so expressive, gentle, funny and cuddly. She's a joy!

This was absolutely all we could have hoped for. Great people who know dogs well. House well suited for controlling a lab. Made our quick trip to the Oregon Caves awesome.

Claire O.

Claire and Pat are our “go to” dog sitters. Teddy is excited to see them when he returns and we are at peace knowing he’s well taken care of.

Claire O.
Thank you! He's a wee goof and adorable. And he knows it! We have a lot of fun with Teddy!

Holiday Inn (Okay, 'In' our house)

Have fenced acreage & I'm not afraid to use it. Licensed to love your dogs. Name's O'Sullivan. Claire O'Sullivan. Hot fudge, banana, marshmallow malt. Shaken, not stirred. (silly joke).
I'm semi-retired. I'm 60, & my husband, also semi-retired, is 63.We're here 24/7. Not afraid of pit bulls.
We have a lot of running room. We love dogs. Kids are grown. We're gentle & patient, consider us family. We have a smaller home, with ...

What Claire would like to know about your dog

We've taken care of almost all breeds and prefer to care for 1-2 dogs (usually from one family to avoid conflicts). We will need to know your dog's mellow-to-energetic attitude (altitude only applies to dogs the size of horses...). Dogs must be house trained. I can take your dog out to potty every 2 hours daytime, and 6 hrs at night (I gotta sleep too!). No bladder or bowel control problems or marking please. Would like to know last vet visit, and report of Parvo, rabies boosters, heart worm med, skin disorders and 'regular' worming as well as flea treatment. Special foods, allergies, bedding, and IF you use a crate we will allow for sleep or comfort only, and your dog will have constant access to us. Do they get their teeth brushed? Yes that's a serious question. Male dogs that mark furniture may not be acceptable. With expected large clean up, there's an additional $10 charge.

When Claire watches your pet

For almost 30 years in the same house, the same acreage, we are in a constant state of transition (aka 'what should we do with this room? Let's move this out, that in... you get the idea). We're home a lot, family is near, we are 'almost' always open on holidays. Also, I multi-task. I can house sit and pet sit in your home for short or long stays. My work is on my laptop, so even as semi retired, I can take it with me. Mostly we play with toys and spend time outdoors. Lots of running/playing room outside. Sun/shade: we never leave your dog alone out/in without our supervision.
