Custom Quotes available for day care and local walking services. (Normal rates 20$ a day)




Welcome to my home!
Our family provides cage free in home boarding and daycare for your furry family. Promoting peace of mind as well as safety, comfort, affection, and socialization while you are away. We are a family of Stay at home Mom, Military/engineer Dad and an energetic 12 year old son as well an extra “handler on hand” Sarah. Our furry family consists of a friendly and affectionate Great Dane and an emergency backup Chihuahua! :]
My History.
All of my life I was fortunate enough to have had at least one and more often multiple dogs in my home. I was probably eight when I started competing in obedience trials and never looked back. My family and friends and even neighbors have come to accept this has always been my calling. As younger adult I was always looking for ways to know more about all of the breeds and sizes of dogs. Now as a stay at home Mom I am finally able to open my warm family home up to provide a safe loving environment for all of those breeds to come relax and visit.
Welcome to my home!

Nice to meet you :)
Introduction and evaluation to make absolutely sure you and your baby feel like our family will be a good fit for their temporary stay. He or she must be ok with my son ( who knows and loves all dogs as much as I do.) I am not breed specific. I do require up to date parvo distemper and rabies shots and MUST be NEUTERED/SPAYED.

Are you comfortable administering medication?
Having a 25 year history of dogs, I have had extensive experience with all kinds of medical occurrences, and am right at home with any size or breed of dog. (I also have a couple tricks up my sleeve that make them not even know it happened :)
How much time do you plan on spending with my dog each day?

With few exceptions, there is always a family member or partner in the house. In the event there are no humans for more than an hour I have video and sound access from my mobile and tablet. I have been stopped more then once at the grocery store by a stranger inquiring why I have stopped mid-way down the aisle, and appear to be checking in on my living room :)


Where will my dog sleep?

Wherever he chooses to :) We find guests like their own personal open crates at night but they have 1200 square feet of hardwood, carpets, dog beds sofas and beds to choose from, or we open spaces for personal crates, as well as low play pens for the smaller, older or injured babies in the great room.

Where will you take my dog on walks? Tell me about it.

My community is surrounded and lined with miles and miles of bike paths, adjacent to a high and middle school with wide open fields, as well as access to two local dog parks, and a private Hilton Head beach that is dog friendly.

Always the best, my dog loves to go there.
Barb is AMAZING!! She was more than willing to take in our THREE labs (which can be quite the challenge!!). They are used to all kinds of love, attention and exercise at home-- and Barb, along with her family, gave them just that and more! Our girls attention and exercise at home-- and Barb, along with her family, gave them just that and more! Our girls were so happy when we picked them up and more relaxed than they have ever been after a weekend away from us. I can not say enough wonderful things about her! I have never felt so comfortable leaving my babies- I don't think they even wanted to come home! She is wonderful and we can't wait to go back!

Barb was absolutely amazing with our dog. We had a meet and greet before she watched her and you could tell right away that she knows her stuff. She is very knowledgable about dogs and not only watched Rosie but was able to provide us with some She is very knowledgable about dogs and not only watched Rosie but was able to provide us with some really helpful training tips.
