About Eric

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Barefoot Mutts Dog Boarding is the perfect alternative to your typical boarding experience. We are here all of the time, for starters. We sit on over 2/3 of an acre, and play outside as often as we can, and boy do we play hard.

We have other friends around to get to know, also teaching your pups a bit of patience and self control (ducks, chickens, bunnies). we love all critters here, big and small, and don't cater to strictly canines, so your pups will experience critters they may never see elsewhere. (Our critters are all in their own homes and coops, for everyone's safety).

Our pups, Freya and Hexe LOVE having company, and welcome temporary pack mates to run amok with. They're both very accepting of other pups and are pretty quick to show guests the ropes.

Please feel free to contact us for a meet and greet or quick play date to get things started. We look forward to meeting you and your furry friends.

Tucker seemed to have a fun time on his vacay. He was worn out when we picked him up. Eric regularly sent pictures of Tucker and stayed on top of communication. I will definitely contact Eric in the future when we need a pet sitter for Tucker.
Eric was great, easy to reach and very responsive. The dogs had a great time, and i could see it with regular photo updates on Facebook. Will definitely bring them back the next time I need to get away.
I loved the entire experience my Pebbles had an awesome time and I felt comfortable leaving her with Eric. She came home HAPPY which was great especially since this was a last minute reservation I'm over the moon
We are so happy to have found Eric! My husband and I are new to the area and needed a dog sitter at the last minute on a Friday afternoon. Eric responded almost immediately to my request and was so friendly and accommodating that I knew our dog would be in good hands. Max had a fantastic time being outdoors and playing with the other dogs. We will definitely be using Barefoot Mutts the next time we have to travel!
Eric and his home was extremely incredible for our dog. He sent pictures and kept good communication throughout the whole process. Highly recommend Eric!
Eric was a great pup daycare host. We gave him fairly short notice and he was accommodating, very responsive to messages and friendly throughout. When we picked Dixie up, she was as tired as if we took her to a traditional daycare and still pooped the following day. Extra bonus was a posts to his Facebook page of all the pups playing and napping and looking generally well cared for. Can't wait till next time!
I called last minute for a reservation and Eric (Barefoot Mutts) responded super fast. Honey, my needy little Lhasa Apso, loved it there. I had to extend her stay as well and they were very accommodating! Eric posted pictures so I could see how she was doing. His boarders even get a real egg omelet on Sundays!! 5 Stars!
Eric was amazing with our Buddy! I will never use anyone else!
Eric was great! There were a lot of dogs, and we were concerned at first that our little Westie would be intimidated or aggressive. It did not happen. She acclimated in just a few minutes. She had a good time, and came back tired and happy. We only did day care, and Eric still sent us an update, which was very reassuring.
Eric's house is not fancy, but the yard is large, and Eric is very attuned to the dogs' need for both time in and outdoors.
After visiting with many sitters we chose Eric to leave our dog with for eight nights. His home and yard are perfect for animals and he does a great job of posting pictures so we knew she was having a good time. We have absolutely no complaints and will be using him again in the future!
Eric was awesome! We have a 12 year old, deaf, diabetic spaniel, and this was the first time we boarded with anyone other than his vet. It could not have gone better! We'll definitely use Eric again!
Our dog Woody had a great time with Eric - and came home happy (and exhausted) from all the play times! I genuinely feel Eric takes time to ensure your dog is taken care of and that it becomes part of his home and his family. Woody loved running around with all the other dogs and will definitely be back when we next go on vacation! Eric also keeps in regular contact with photos and messages which is a great touch. Thanks again!!!!!
A new and exciting experience for our Bentley.
Tesla had a great time with Eric at his place! Lots of playing with other pups, plenty of space to roam outside, and a chance to get used to some friendly bunnies, hens, ducks and even a pig named Peaches. Eric sends awesome photo updates and even an occasional video throughout the day. Tesla is clearly excited to see Eric every time we come by. Thanks!
Eric was awesome about a last minute reservation due to family emergency!
My dog loves it here!
My dog loves staying with Eric. He generally has at least another friend to play with and his back yard gives my dog plenty of room to run and just be a dog. Every time I leave my dog with him I know that he is taken care of and when i come back to pick him up he is always sad to leave.
I'm bringing my dog for daycare each week, and it's great. Eric is awesome and helpful!
Eric was very flexible and accommodating of our travel plans. Kuma had a great time playing with his pups and was happy (and worn out) when we picked her up. He sent pictures and uploaded a few more to Instagram. Would recommend to others looking for a caring and entertaining place for their dog(s) to stay.
Eric was so helpful and sweet to the dogs! Easy to tell he's an animal lover, and he made me feel comfortable about where my pups were and sent me lots of great pics and kept me updated. Good play area for dogs to run around and get tired! I was really happy with his services!
Eric was available on short notice. He has a great set up and my dogs seemed happy after leaving. I would for sure contact him again.
Great place!
Eric was very nice and my dogs seemed to have had a great time. I was worried they wouldn't want to come home but in the end they did. They were tired afterwards so I know they interacted with him and the other animals he had in his backyard.
Another great visit!!! Lucy knew when we got into the area, and was beside herself. Eric came out to great us, and Lucy never looked back at separation anxiety when we left!!! She had a grand ol' time!!! Thanks E & E !!!
Eric was so great about taking my dogs in at the last minute. He even gave one a bath, because I was pressed for time. They never even saw me leave! They were way too busy checking out all the interesting critters in the backyard! I'll definitely use Eric's sitting services again.
My dog had a blast, and I got a couple pics too!
Another 5 star week for Lucy at the Ranch!

Lucy has the time of her life out there and comes home tired....exactly what we hope for, with our highly active 2 year old!

Thanks to our hosts for their great supervision and flexibility in our schedule (we ran into a lot of traffic on our way back from AR)!
Lucy had an incredible stay!! Our high energy dog actually came home and crashed from her long week workout. We had scheduled a meet and great first, to make sure she would be fine with all of the animals there (pigs, turkey, chickens, ducks, rabbits, dogs, cats and more). She passed the meet and greet...and we dropped her off for a long first stay (11 days). Our hosts were responsive to any questions we had along the way...and it was obvious that Lucy enjoyed the environment. The week was rainy/muddy....but when we arrived, our hosts had her all bathed and ready to go. It is so nice to know there are folks that treat your dog, like you treat your dog! Thank You Thank You Thank You! 5 PAW rating!!
I will keep coming back to them. They treat my dog great and are very easy to work with.
Holly had a great week with Eric and his family. He sent us pictures and updates that all was well, which we greatly appreciated. I know that she loved playing in his huge back yard.

We definitely recommend Eric for people looking for a great place to leave their dog/s.
Jazz loved staying with Eric when I went to Maine for Christmas. I received photo updates frequently of her playing with the other dogs. When we picked her up she didn't want to leave and she whined half of the way home! We will definitely use Eric again for future vacations!
Kylie had another great stay at Eric's. She has so much fun with their dog in the big backyard.
My dog has the Best time at Eric's place. I would recommend it to anyone.
Great communication! Sent pics of my pup having great time :) Excellent with my big Great Dane and a lifesaver after all pet hotels were sold out over thanksgiving holidays! Thanks a million Eric.
