Amazing service run by a lovely person. Clare has a lovely, calm presence and a natural ability with dogs - professional but very friendly and our pooch loves her! Whoopi always comes home happy and tired.
We have total peace of mind that our dog is in good hands at Doggy Day Clare. I can’t recommend Clare highly enough and have total confidence in her abilities.
I would highly recommend Clare and her "Doggy Day Clare" service (we even love the name!)
Being relatively new to Brighton, it was difficult for us to know who to turn to when we needed someone to look after our little terrier 'Scamp'. We had a really good walker for a short while who was no longer able to take Scamp, so we were nervous about turning to someone else that we didn't know. I needn't have been worried, as soon as i saw the Doggy Day Clare Facebook page, the pictures and comments, I was certain she was the right choice. From the first time we met Clare we were made to feel comfortable and in safe hands. Clare has the perfect mix of professional approach, dog experience, doggy passion and friendly attitude. I get regular (but never intrusive) communication that gives me updates on Scamp's whereabouts. I love the brief email reports with photos of that day's adventures, and i often check out the facebook page for the photos of the various daytrips and doggy lodgers.
Clare is very flexible too, and has helped us out at short notice when needed. It is clear that she and our dog Scamp have built up a good relationship already and i think they both love each other already. (as was evidenced when we bumped into Clare in town the other day and Scamp got very excited!.)
I particularly like that the majority of Clare's 'customers' are smaller dogs, it's not that I (or Scamp) mind the bigger dogs, but I feel more comfortable that Scamp is with a similar group.
In a very short time Clare has become a valued friend, and we look forward to many more doggy adventures in the future.
(p.s. Stan is adorable too!)
It is with great pleasure that I recommend Doggy Day Clare. I found Clare to be very professional from our very first meeting. She gave me the option to meet her and see her facilities prior to my booking my two dogs first overnight which was greatly appreciated.
Clare takes great pride in creating a welcoming and warm environment for the dogs in her care. The outdoor space was inviting and my pups warmed to her immediately as her personality is so approachable and loving.
Clare collected my dogs and delivered them back when we returned from holiday. This was just one of the many personal touches Clare provides. We received email updates throughout our time away which put our minds at ease that our dogs were well. They were allowed to bring their own bedding and food which also made them feel at home.
Without reservation I recommended Clare to my neighbours who have already booked for their upcoming holiday. Doggy Day Clare is the choice for owners who want their dogs to be cared for with all the personal touches in a home away from home.
Our dog Jack Frost loves sleepovers at Clare's. He was so excited to stay there in such a loving, caring environment and of course, learning new tricks from Stan and his other doggy play mates.
We travel across Brighton to Clare because she is everything a top dog carer should be and much more.
Everyone gets a warm welcome, Clare is well organised and really takes the time to get to know the dogs she cares for. It's very obvious Clare loves her job and the dogs love Clare and being with her. Clare takes loads of photos while we are away and emails them so we know Jack Frost is having a great time while we are gone. Not only are they cared for in the home but they are taken on some fabulous walks too and I have complete peace of mind when Jack Frost is with Clare. It's actually like a doggy treat to send our dog to Clare and I definitely don't feel guilty about leaving him anymore. It's so good, I wouldn't mind a weekend at Clare's myself and I wholeheartedly recommend Clare and so pleased we found her too.
