Ever since I adopted my dog from the SPCA, Claire has been my number one go-to caretaker when I am unable to get home to take care of him or when I have to spend nights out of town for business.
After Claire took care of the dog on my behalf on a few occasions, I was confident that he would be in good hands when I had to leave the country for three weeks ...
Here for the love of dogs!
Nice to meet you! My name is Claire, and I've been caring for dogs in my home and others homes since I was a teenager. I have been dog-sitting for my housemate's two dogs since they were puppies, have fostered many dogs - from bottle fed to several years - and I also dog-sit an elderly border collie when his owner is out of town. My most recent long-term care was for this same nine-year-old Border Collie ...
What Claire would like to know about your dog
I have no breed preferences. I have fostered chihuahuas that fit in the palm of my hand and watched labs that are taller than me! I would like to know if, and how well, your dog gets along with other dogs, and what level of exercise they are comfortable with. It is also important to note if they have any parts of their bodies they do not like touched, ie. will bite if you touch their belly, etc.
