My dog is one of my biggest joys and my constant companion. My dog was just as relaxed and happy when I picked her as when I dropped her off... And she looks like she's had a spa day. 5 + stars!!!

As I told Clarissa when I picked up my dogs, "I wish you lived closer and could be my regular dog sitter!"

My experience with Clarissa - from her prompt response to my initial inquiry to when I picked up my dogs - was amazing! Although I wasn't able to meet her beforehand (I needed a sitter for part of a road trip), her proactiveness in sharing her experience with senior dogs put me at ease ...

We are from out of town, and Clarissa was willing to host our 3 chipoms before even meeting them. We stopped in Bakersfield to visit family who are allergic before heading to Yosemite. With the hot weather we wanted our pups at daycare. Clarissa kept them indoors in air conditioning and kept us updated on how they were doing. 8 hours later we picked them up happy and well taken care of! We also scheduled ...

Home 100% and pro grooming offered!

Hi there! My name is Clarissa. I am an animal lover, and I have lifelong experience with many different species. I grew up riding/training horses and rescuing cats and dogs. I currently have a few of my own furbabies: cats, a puppy, and a parrot.

I am married to a vet tech/groomer so I am used to being around lots of dogs who I've met and who are new to me. This has ...

What Clarissa would like to know about your dog

I absolutely adore dachshunds, but I truly love all breeds. They have all their quirks and lovable qualities. would like to know if your pup has any likes and dislikes, any allergies or special nutritional needs/medications (I'm a pro with administering meds). I'd also like to know if they are housebroken, crate-trained, leash trained, or aggressive with anyone in specific so we can avoid that. Also, please let me know their temperament so I can adjust my methods and environment accordingly!

About Clarissa's Home

When Clarissa watches your pet

I have a really great neighborhood that allows me to walk for miles! I love to play fetch and tug o' war. I have a large fenced yard that will let me play chase and run around with them. If they love baths, I can give them a nice little swim in the bathtub. If your pup isn't very active, they can lounge around on the bed all day too!
