Claire’s Bio

Hi there, I'm Claire!
I love animals, ranging from inside pets to outside farm animals. Having house-sat for many families over the past 10 years, I have a lot of experience with taking care of their dogs, cats, birds, guinea pigs, rabbits, goats, chickens, etc., and love every minute of it. As a plus, when families return, their house always tends to look better than it did when they left.
Between 2010-2012, and again in 2014, I volunteered as a dog-walker/care-taker at Dakin Humane Society (in Amherst, MA), working with dogs of all breeds on the adoption floor and in pre-adoption. Depending on how many dogs were on the floor, walks would range between 10 and 30 minutes with some time at the end to play (if they wanted) in the courtyard. Feeding and cleaning up their pens were also part of my duties, as was training them in simple commands.
While at Dakin I also worked on the cat floor, feeding and playing with all the cats and kittens, and in the small animal room caring for the rats, bunnies, birds, mice, and chinchillas that were up for adoption.
Through Dakin I gained experience working with senior animals, newborns, pregnant moms, animals with high levels of stress (understandably), FIV positive cats, and those individuals with different food requirements and difficult behavior.
My training involves identification/recognition of animal behavior, correct handling and restraint for dogs, cats, small animals, and farm animals, identification and some treatment of injury/sickness and dietary issues.
I have a simple background in dog training, having successfully helped to train my co-parented dog in many simple behavioral commands. I have trained other dogs too, though because I'm not there to maintain that level of training and the owner doesn't enforce it the dog usually ends up back to square 1.
