Claire's experience as
Registered Veterinary Technician and volunteer work at various animal shelters established her deep connection with animals. After she adopted her first dog, Devvyn, she decided to dedicate her career to taking care of dogs full-time.
Now, Devvyn and her spend every day together with their other animal friends. Exploring on hikes, playing in dog parks, running around on beaches - every day is an adventure in her pack!
Ruffin’ Around was started by Claire Franz in 2012. Her experience with working at doggie daycares and passion for animals led her to create a one-of-a-kind dog business in Oakland, CA.
"Ruffin' Around" is exactly what your four-pawed loved one will be doing while hanging out with Claire! She is proud to offer her experience, care and love to you and your pups! She provides safe, loving, exhausting adventures to keep your pups socialized, exercised, and cared for throughout the day.
Claire caters to any dogs needs, big or small, young pup or the older and wiser, high-energy dog or the ones that like to just sunbathe. Our packs are split up in groups of no more than six. This way every pup gets individual attention.
Claire is looking forward to Ruffin' Around with your pups!
