Clarissa was amazing with our 13 yo retriever just this past month. Her care and her updates were detailed and helped ease the anxiety that layla was in good hands esp. as layla had just recovered from old dog vertigo a few weeks before our trip.
I would use Clarissa in a heartbeat!! Thanks Clarissa.

Clarissa is the best! She treated my dog as one of her own. Rosie (my cavalier) sometimes has anxiety when left at boarding kennels, but she felt loved and comfortable like she was at home. Clarissa sent many pics morning and night and Rosie looked very happy and content!! I will use Clarissa again! I would definitely recommend Clarissa!!!

Clarissa was a great sitter, she took really good care of our dog. Our dog can be shy and Clarissa made him feel welcome. She has her own doggy and both dogs got along very well. She also sent us updates and photos on how Devo was doing for our peace of mind. I would definitely recommend Clarissa and we will absolutely be using her service again!

PawStay, warm stay when you're away

Hi, my name is Clarissa. I am a freelance copywriter and editor who works from home. Coming from a dog lover family, I have been taking care of dogs for my entire life.

When Clarissa watches your pet

Your dog can get unlimited hugs, cuddles, and kisses from me! They will also have runs or walks. I provide dog toys that your dog can play with and they are allowed on the furniture. If your dog is having an overnight stay, your dog can sleep on the sofa or the bed. And if there are big thunderstorms, I will make sure that your dog feels safe and taken care of.
