About Barbara

23 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
DETAILS : We are big cuddler's, happily serve any approved treats and enjoy tug of war with a pup. We have a local park with a pond and two dog parks. Otherwise 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. She also loves taking pictures. Basically what a pet, missing their owner needs, is a home, and if nothing else we specialize in creating that feeling.
SERVICE TERMS: All dogs must be at least 4 months old and have all shots and flea treatments natural or otherwise. Preferably no high energy or aggressive dogs as we often have puppies. 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 us. For overnight stays any extra dogs you have will be 5 off per dog if no more than twice in 6 months, otherwise standard rate applies. If pick up is after 1PM on the last day, then a 10 dollar partial daycare fee applies. Daycare: normal price. We do accommodate any hours of pick up and drop off.
EXPERIENCE: 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 2 years. 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. We have been going for 6 months and like to do the little extra touches so our clients, both human and animal feel special.

Barbara went above and beyond. Thank-you Barbara!
Barbara and her assistant were very sweet and pampered my pup every day he was there! I enjoyed working with her and loved the daily updates she provided.
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!
