About Barbara

39 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have owned and cared for dogs, cats, fish, rabbits, chinchillas and several different types of reptiles including snakes and dragon lizards. I have a doggie door for my dogs and their outdoor activities are always monitored. I have a fenced in yard and when the dogs go out I make sure that I am home. I only ask that your dogs are house broken and get along with senior dogs since both my dogs are seniors. I take my dogs to the dog park on a regular basis therefore they get along with other dogs very well. Your dog will enjoy a day filled with lots of love. They will get up every morning to kisses and belly rubs. If they are accustomed to sleeping on your bed no worries thats where my guys are. I have a queen size bed so there is plenty of room. They will be let out immediately after their belly rub and given treats (only if allowed). I make my own treats with no preservatives for my dogs and with your approval your dog will be part of the treat session.

Barbara has 2 small dogs. One fly's with her, every time she goes out of state. She pampers her pets, cooking special food for them, taking them to dog parks and walks.
She shows so much love to her furry friends, that us adult friends want to come back in our next life as her pets!
She would be an absolute fantastic pet sitter. Extremely attentive , patient, and caring.

No one loves animals more than Barbara. A long-time dog & cat owner, I have seen her do everything to give proper love and care to her animals. There is no doubt in my mind that she would do the same for someone else's animals. My mom always said "when I die I want to come back as one of Barbara's pets" because she would give all she had for her animals. She has been a dog mom for longer than she has been a human mom and with over 30+ years of experience caring for pets, she is the perfect person to take care of yours!

As most good hosts, requiring a meet & greet is important. Our situation of driving into town & getting my Macy booked in was unusual, but Barbara made it very helpful & easy. Upon drop off, we meet the other dogs & Macy seemed very at easy. Good made it very helpful & easy. Upon drop off, we meet the other dogs & Macy seemed very at easy. Good dog-friendly house & yard.
We have already booked in again.

Barbara is fantastic. My dogs love her!
Barbara obviously loves dogs and takes seriously her duty to care for visiting dogs. This was our first time using her services, though, so we had a bit of a learning experience! My older dog is on a special diet, and looks for any opportunity to bit of a learning experience! My older dog is on a special diet, and looks for any opportunity to go off of it, which causes her severe issues. As soon as Barbara turned her back, my dog finished her own food and then ate some of Barbara's dog's food AND my other dog's food - he's a puppy, so his food is very rich. My older dog had diarrhea for 4 days. Barbara did let us know right away, though, offering to take our dog to our vet and being very apologetic, etc. Next time, we'll all be more careful. We will definitely use Barbara again, though! Her home is very well set up for watching dogs, and her own dogs are lovely. After an initial getting-to-know-you visit, my two dogs were quite comfortable with her two dogs. Just be sure to let her know if their food needs to be put up while your dog visits...
