About Barbara

38 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!

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 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...
Barbara was great. She was able to accommodate our schedule for the day. Bailey had a great time playing with the other dogs. We would definitely use her again.
Thank you so much for taking good care of Carrie while we were gone. Let's meet up at the dog park!
Barbara was beyond wonderful and most accommodating for our little guy, Scout. I felt very comfortable knowing he was in good hands. I didn't even have to check up on Scout because Barbara was on top of it. Sending cute photo's and video's of our pup. What was most rewarding, Scout left in good spirits so I know he had a great stay. I would highly recommend Barbara's services and will look her up again in the near future. Thanks again! :)
Barbara was an AMAZING host. I could say a number of great things about her, but for readers' ease, I listed our top 3 comments below:

1. Her home is like a luxury doggie spa, with toys and beds and homemade snacks. THAT'S RIGHT - SHE MAKES HER OWN DOG TREATS!!! It is incredibly pet-friendly. There is a screened pool AND a fenced backyard, plus plenty of land all around for them to explore. My dogs had TOO much fun in her care.

2. Barbara is incredibly flexible. During Hurricane Matthew a different dog sitter fell through and I was scrambling last minute to re-arrange our plans. Barbara responded within 15 minutes of my request and moved some things around in order to look after our dogs for those few days. She was a lifesaver!

3. Overall, she was responsive and sent us pictures and updates. She has a pleasant and very friendly demeanor. We will definitely use her again in the future when we head out that way.

Highly Recommended!
