About Barbara

23 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Experience/Service and terms: My daughter and I have had dogs since she was 11. We have an affinity for all kinds of animals and have been fostering pregnant mothers and raising the puppies for a year and a half. Little dogs tend to trust me and I rather enjoy their company. As for my daughter, we have had such success in fostering that I learned of her skills in putting even nervous dogs at ease and dedication that has led to keeping even the largest litters not only alive but viable for adoption. Because of this I have started this business with her as an intern to learn the how to's of running one to maybe even build a career from it someday. She will be doing the pet visit part as she is comfortable with any nearly animal you could name. Her main experience is in hamsters and cats but has had enough with snakes, rabbits, rats, mice and fish that with a little instruction she will happily spoil them in the time she visits them too.
SERVICE TERMS AND DETAILS: Overnight 24 per dog for 2, if more than twice in 6 months 29 per dog for 2 otherwise. If pick up is after noon on the day of then a 18 dollar daycare fee applies. Daycare: normal. Home Visits: If twice a day 15 per visit, offering 10 per visit if 3 to 4 visits a day. All dogs must at least 4 months and have all shots and flea treatments natural or otherwise. preferably no high energy dogs. If your dog is not a puller or prone to chasing after things on walks over 20 lbs is alright, it's more a matter of arm strength for me. We spoil but happily follow owner guidelines. We have a large/ park like apartment lot which is great for walks and a fenced patio for a little extra sense of freedom. We are big cuddler's, will happily dish out any approved treats and enjoy the occasional tug of war with a pup. We have a local park and a dog park very close and I go several times a week. Otherwise we are pretty laid back and at least one of us is home most of the time. Meeting is a must to ensure harmony but my daughter does have a little experience with training but not professionally. Basically what a pet missing their owner needs, is a home and if nothing else we specialize in creating that feeling. Pictures: These show everything from indoor relax and sleep time both in our beds or sectioned off beds, to a post bath chill shot, to play time indoors and out from all our work with OFOSA. Hope you enjoyed, they were fun pictures to take. Sorry that the biggest play shots and eating shots were all videos. As seen your pet will surely enjoy their stay.

excellent all around care and love thank you Barbara and staff, see you next time for sure !!!!!!
My foster pup had a great time here! She loved playing with Thor and came home exhausted and happy. Barb was also extremely accommodating for days when I had to work late. Could not recommend enough!
My dog was very happy here.
Very pleasant experience for Jake and myself.
My dog was very happy here and was well treated. Liked the extra touch of uploading photos and videos of her for me to view while I was away.
What impressed us most is their dedication to a safe and friendly atmosphere for our dog. Barbara and her daughter were so attentive and kind to her. They made us feel so happy seeing her on video and special photos. She looked like she was having lots of fun! We would not hesitate in recommending them to others seeking a warm and friendly place for your dog. Great job!
