About Claire

I've had dogs since I was born, and at one time had a whole houseful of pets ranging from tortoises to dogs. I adore dogs and find that they are good for your well being. I've added some old pictures of our last dog Luke who we unfortunately lost a few years ago at a good age of 13 prior to that I had 2 dogs, Fred and Poppy. We adored Luke so much that its been difficult to consider getting another dog, until we started to have friends and family dogs to stay when they were on holiday and realised how much we missed having one as part of the family (see pictures of Bessie our friends Springer Spaniel). As I no longer work it seems a natural step to offer my services as a dog sitter and then I stumbled across DogBuddy which is a fantastic idea. We do have 2 children, boys who are aged 9 & 10, they are very gentle and love to play and look after all the dogs we care for. They desperately want a dog especially after sitting and so we are on the look out for our perfect companion for the family. I will always treat your companion as you request and make sure that they are loved, cuddled and walked lots whilst you are away. We live right next to Appley Park in Ryde and the beach (picture added) where there is a community of dog walkers who we still talk too from our days of walking our Luke. So we are perfectly located for dog sitting, walking etc. I've now started to look after a number of dogs so I've dusted off my decent camera and taken a few pictures of them in our home. (Please note that the overnight rate of £20 is for a 24 hour period, should you need to collect your doggy after the 24hr period there will be a further charge of £10)

    All went well with my two energetic Pointers for their first overnight stay with Claire. Claire was reassuring and sent instant communication when I had a last minute concern. The dogs were well looked after and photos of them were sent. A fully fenced and dog-proofed garden would allay future concerns.

    Thank you Victoria we thoroughly enjoyed have Dotty and Ace. We agree that the back fence into the field needs securing, this is our spring job! Dottie could certainly smell the wildlife so I'm glad we took them out in the garden on long leads.

    We're really pleased with how well Claire looks after and includes our dog into her family life. Of course we'd recommend her.
