As an ex-pat Brit Claire Mendelsohn ran a successful dog boarding and pet sitting business in New York. After moving back to London she’s now offering the same high standard of service to the dog parents of Teddington. She holds diplomas in Canine Psychology, Companion Animal Bereavement Counselling, and, not forgetting that people need TLC too, she’s also a qualified Holistic Therapist.
Having been a dog walker for most of my life, and a professional and qualified dog walker for the past year, I have had the privilege of working with Claire on numerous occasions. Her approach, handling and understanding of dogs is a quality which is rarely found in so-called dog lovers. Her priority is always for the welfare of the dog and ensuring that the time spent in her company is safe and full of fun.

My 6 year old chocolate labrador Alfie is my baby, and until I met Claire I only trusted my family to look after him! However, when you meet Claire, it is clear that she loves animals, and they, in turn, love her, and I would not hesitate to recommend her. She also understands dogs, having studied Canine Pyschology, and this is important to me as I know that she will ensure that my dog is safe and under control at all times. I am really happy and relaxed to leave Alfie in Claire’s capable hands…and Alfie is happy too!

I’ve been using Houndjog since the very beginning. I was attracted by their well designed website and reasonable rates. However these are not good enough reasons to entrust a stranger with your best friend. When I met Claire I took my dog Sophie with me, she’s a good judge of character and I knew if she liked Claire then that was a start. Needless to say Sophie loved Claire and I was very impressed with her professionalism (Claire’s that is, not Sophie’s!). We’ve been using her services ever since and I know I can trust anyone who works for Claire as they are scrupulously checked.

I was introduced to Claire by a friend who had used her for a year. My dogs and I haven’t looked back and I feel confident in recommending them to others.

I am happy to provide Claire with a testimonial. My family has both dogs and cats and to leave them in kennels or a cattery when we go away is heartbreaking and extremely expensive. So if we’re going to spend the money on our pets we’d rather do it knowing they’re at home and safe. Its difficult trusting people with your home and your furry family, but at some point you have to make the leap. Claire was recommended to us and I’m confident in passing this forward.
