Hello my name is Claire. I’m 30 years old, living in Smiths Lake in The Great Lakes Region of NSW. I am currently in my second year at University and studying a Bachelor of Education (k-12) online at UNE. Pet Sitting would be my ideal full-time job however, not realistic for my lifestyle. I am an avid animal lover, especially dogs and am my happiest when surrounded by them.
Smith’s lake/ Pacific Palms area is a slice of paradise with my days consisting of dogs, dogs, dogs, dogs, the beach, sun, walks, adventure, surfing, and watching the sunset at the lake with dogs. Its absolute heaven for animals as there is endless open spaces and plenty of dog friendly beaches and parks.
Last year my partner finally decided to let me get a dog and we now have a GORGEOUS German Sheppard cross Siberian Husky named Pablo. He is in a lot of my photos and as you can see is extremely gentle, friendly, fun-loving and obedient. Pablo does not have one aggressive bone in his body and is very submissive when confronted with other aggressive dogs. He welcomes new friends into his home and loves sharing his favourite toys and even his bed. I am a very active person so spend most of my time outside with Pablo. I have taught him how to stand on a Stand-Up Paddle Board and we are often paddling around Smiths Lake together along with all the other fur babies I take care off. I have a massive back yard with plenty of space for dogs to run around and play. I often play hide and seek with the pups and they absolutely love it! I cater for all different ages of dogs and will walk your dog 3 times a day if that is what it requires to be happy, or if its an old pup with arthritis I will smother it with cuddles and love and give it lots of healthy treats 😊
I’ve grown up with pets my whole life, these including; dogs, cats, Guinea Pigs, birds and even a ferret. Gemma, a 3-legged blue heeler, was my childhood dog and grew to a very old age. I have since had 2 other dogs and am currently looking after my mother in laws blind golden Labrador, who I absolutely adore! I have so much compassion and empathy for animals, especially those with special needs and the elderly. Whilst living overseas in Canada, I had extensive experience looking after Huskies and Alaskan Malamutes. Prior to going overseas last year, I was previous Mad paws Pet Sitter. I have since returned and couldn’t wait to get back into sitting again!
I receive so much happiness and satisfaction from taking care of animals. I pride myself on honesty, dedication and commitment to you and your precious pet and will prove this by providing you with regular updates and photos of your happy, fulfilled fluffball. I am very loyal, trustworthy and reliable. I will reply to all messages and phones call within an hour and am very easy to get in touch with.

Pet Sitting - Jun 27, 2020
Claire was a one in a million find, her love of animals obvious from the get go. Buddy’s stay was so easy as Claire made it a point to familiarise herself and her home with Buddy before check in day. Cannot recommend highly enough. …
