About Claire

My name is Claire and following running a very successful childminding business, I have decided to put to rest the old saying "never work with children and animals" to bed! by building hopefully(!) a very successful pet care service for the people of Winchester and surrounding areas. My new business is called "YourPetpal" and I provide professional, reliable dog care services; alongside caring for other animals too if required! I am fully certified by Winchester City Council to provide homely caring boarding for up to three dogs at a time. I have been on a first aid course for dogs and have a full animal first aid kit at hand and my home is very safe for dogs. I am based in Teg Down in Winchester, I have a vast array of places to take dogs for a lovely walk out. I also have a good sized garden which all dogs have access to. I provide dog walking, dog boarding, dog sitting, dog day care, and other pet services. Please feel free to contact me. As my business builds I hope to be able to provide further services, such as dog grooming and training.

    claire runs a very professional business and makes sure that she understands everything about your dog before drop off. she keeps the dogs in a family environment and clearly surrounded by love. taco came back tired and happy. i didn't have a moments worry and would definitely leave him with claire again.

    The beagles loved their stay with Claire. They had an action packed weekend with trips to the beach and walks through the countryside. Ronnie enjoyed playing cricket in the garden with the children fetching the ball. It was nice seeing regular photos to see what they were getting up to. The family environment suited them well and they came back tired and happy- perfect! In all a great experience and would definitely be booking again :-)
