Bo thoroughly enjoyed his stay with Clara. She sent regular updates and he had a lot of fun with her dogs. Clara is clearly very comfortable with dogs in general and it was nice knowing she would be able to handle anything that might come up. Highly recommended!

Our plan to leave our standard poodle Rusty with Clara for the day worked out perfectly. Clara has a fenced yard, which he enjoyed. Clara lives a few minutes from Monticello, home of Thos Jefferson. We booked several tours at Monticello and spent virtually the whole day there. Rusty was well cared for and we had a great day sight seeing. Afterward she sent us pictures and he seemed quite at home.

We needed to board our dog Torque (large hound mix) for a last minute trip and Clara was great - super flexible on timing for drop off and pick up, took him for a long walk + a car trip out to Crozet, and checked in with us with some great pics. She has a big fenced in yard which is a plus. We felt great about leaving Torque in her hands. Would definitely book her again!

They only live once- I make it fun!

I have many dog friends all over charlottesville who love me because we run, take pictures, and cuddle during our visits! I have been watching pets since I was a little kid and I have always paid attention to the details of their care and treated them as if they were my own fur babies. I’m a student who does classes online, so that frees my days up for long walks on the Rivanna ...

What Clara would like to know about your dog

The main thing I would like to know is if he or she is dog or people shy. Also, I don’t have children, but that option wasn’t allowing me to continue to make my profile. Will update when able!
