Specialising in the care of Retrievers within our family home. Love, companionship and adventures come as part and parcel. They simply join our family.I own a very small, home-run family business. Our everyday lives have always revolved around our own beloved Golden Retrievers which is what sets me apart from commercial boarding kennels and larger scale dog care businesses. As devoted pet owners, we know what it is like to want a truly personal service and to wish to have your dog cared for as you would, yourself. I pride myself in having the ability to offer you a completely bespoke service which meets all of your dog's needs.
I cannot recommend Clair’s wrap around care enough! I was very apprehensive about leaving my beloved dog for a week whilst I went on holiday but the regular photo and video updates of my dog thoroughly enjoying herself was so reassuring! Clair is a lovely person with a genuine love for dogs and I’m so glad I’ve found her! I’ve just booked my dog in for another stay!

Clair is just wonderful. Our young retriever, Diggle, has been going to her since he was 16 weeks old and he absolutely loves his visits and stays. Clair is so knowledgeable and helpful with him, and has helped us with a number of bits of advice that we needed. Diggle always comes home exhausted but very happy and we cannot recommend her enough!

I think 2 things sum up how Bella got on with her first stay with Clair. Firstly, she didn’t want to come home. She turned round to go back in when I opened the car door. Second, despite the imminent tea time she is now curled up absolutely fast asleep on my knee. I’m not sure when she will wake up.
Throughout the time away we received photos and videos of the dogs having an amazing time. We met again for a walk today and Bella +3 just gel and have a wonderful time.
I can truly say that I hope Bella never has to stay anywhere else.

We started bringing Max to Clair’s about 2 months ago at the age of 4 months. He goes for several days a week and now we would never look back. She is absolutely amazing you just know she does it for the love of the dogs. Our lives are so stress free knowing max is in safe hands and is having so much fun day in day out. Clair regularly throughout the day sends photos and videos of the fun our little boy is having. Max seems so grown up already and learnt so much through coming here and this is also thanks to Clair’s 2 boys Magnus and Oscar such loving natured dogs. Max always drags his bum when its time to leave.He just doesn’t want to come home and that just tells you he’s enjoyed himself so much. Thanks again Clair we really do appreciate everything you do for max. Love Hayley, Jess and of course little Max. ❤️

I was like a mum dropping off her kid for his first day at school this morning – will he get picked on, will he behave etc etc! How daft was I? Dougie had his first day with Claire and his new four-legged friends. He had a wonderful time which was clear to see from the photographic updates received throughout the day! A real home from home experience xxx we are lucky to have found you! Thankyou Claire the first of many. From Dougie the Golden Retriever.

This was the first time that our gorgeous Golden Retriever Louis had been away from us for more than one night and we were anxious to say the least, but left him in the loving hands of Clair for 4 nights while we went on holiday and he had so much fun with lots of new friends and we relaxed all week knowing he was in good hands.
As an only dog he was quite timid to begin with but soon came out of his shell! We picked him up this evening and he’s exhausted from all the fun with his new pack. Thanks so much Clair, will recommend to every dog owner we know and Louis can’t wait to come and stay again! xxx

Everyone wants to know that their dog is happy whilst they’re on holiday. If they’re in kennels they may get exercised before going back into the kennel but not like being at home with the family. We’ve now found the ideal solution in “Wrap around care”. Staying with Clair and her lovely dogs is just like being at home and probably more stimulating. The daily photographs show Annie in a family group with the family and help me to enjoy my holiday. I’m so glad to have found a place where I know Annie likes to go even if she sulks when I take her home!

Janet Baker – 5 star Clair and family are the most wonderful dog-hosts and jack loves his stays with them. They care for him like one of their own (lovely) dogs. Such a special place and I cannot imagine Jack staying anywhere else.

“The old man who I normally take for walks had ankle surgery so I was stumped for a companion. Fortunately he found Clair on her web site, so I now take her for a walk usually with Magnus. I have shown her some of my favourite places and introduced both to my old friends. It works well and Magnus and I have great fun together, my old man is going to have to do well if he wants me to walk him in the future.”

We have never sent our dog to kennels .. Am sure there are lots of lovely ones doing great jobs but I just couldn’t get past the idea he would be a little lost among all the other dogs . Sending our treasured dog SCRUMPY to Clair’s is like sending him to his favourite aunty ! He adores Clair and she clearly adores him and knowing this allows us to relax and enjoy our holidays safe in the knowledge our dog is happy and cherished. He’s usually exhausted when he come home as he gets far more exercise there than he does at home and he always looks so happy and healthy when we pick him up. Not only is he loved and spoilt rotten at Clair’s he also learns manners there too !! I couldn’t recommend Clair’s services enough , I couldn’t praise her too much .. What she offers is truly unique … Your dog gets the privilege of being part of her lovely family, with walks and cuddles and warm lazy evenings by the fire , for how ever long they stay. If your dog is lucky enough to go to Clair’s they could not be in better hands .
