About Barbara

51 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Love, love, love dogs. I've owned dogs for most of my life and now that i am retired, I have lots of time to enjoy them. However, my husband and I are "snowbirds" in the winter and Lake Michigan sailors in the summer so I do not have any pets now due to this travel. In the spring, April -May and the fall, September-December, I am at home in Shelbyville, which is in Western Michigan, halfway between Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo. I live in the country on a lake and have lots of outdoor space for walks and playing with your precious puppy. Would love to meet you all!

We've never had anyone outside our family watch our dog before Barbara, but I have to say this was beyond my expectations. Barbara took our dog for many walks and treated our dog like she was her own. Couldn't be any happier with her as a sitter. She sent many pictures and responded quickly every time I needed something. I loved the country setting for our dog, lots to see and hear for a dog. The house was a great atmosphere and very welcoming for our dog. I would highly recommend Barbara for anyone, especially if you are nervous about leaving your pet!
Our dog had a wonderful time with Barbara. She walked him, loved him and even took a nap with him. Her home has a huge deck overlooking a lake. Pip could sit in front of the window and watch all the birds and chipmunks go by. Needless to say he returned to us happy and well cared for. We will forever use Barbara's dogvacay!!!
We visited Barbara and Tom and could tell they were indeed dog lovers. After "Mattie's" stay we could not have been more pleased. Pictures and updates were forwarded which eliminated any worries we may have had about our puppy. She was well cared for and seemed to enjoy her adventure with her hosts. Thanks so much for everything. John?Joanne
