About Andres & Natalie

Barkhaus is a privately run home dog care business. We offer 24/7 highly responsible, reliable and trustworthy personalized dog sitting service in a home environment tailored to meet the needs of you and your dog. Whether it’s a day, a weekend, a week or much longer, your dog will receive individual attention suited to his/her personality and demeanor. Your dog will get a healthy dose of human and dog interaction while you are gone, including walks and play-time – unless otherwise specified by you.

We are strong believers that in order to have a mentally stable/ happy dog, he or she needs to be walked everyday and there need to be rules and boundaries inside and outside of the home. We are fans and proponents of the works of Cesar Millan and Temple Grandin. We understand that every dog is an individual and has their individual needs. We are 100% comfortable with medicating, feeding, bathing and dedicating ourselves and our time to ensure that while you are gone, your pup will get the best care and attention which would otherwise be unavailable in a caged boarding facility.

A little bit about us:
Andres received an Associate of Science degree from Santa Fe College in Gainesville, Florida, with a concentration in Zoo Animal Technology. He worked full-time while getting his degree at the Santa Fe Teaching Zoo, an AZA accredited facility with over 75 species and 200 individual animals. He was responsible for preparing daily diets, constructing habitats, capture/restraint as well as training. He has been surrounded by dogs since childhood including Great Danes, Rottweilers, English Bulldogs, and Cocker Spaniels to name a few. Andres has a passion for animals of any species and has the experience necessary and time required to truly make your pet a member of our household for their stay.

Natalie received her Bachelor’s Degree from University of Florida with a major in Animal Science and minor in Business & Marketing. Upon graduation Natalie spent a summer working on a horse breeding farm in Ocala where she assisted in breeding, foaling and horse breaking. Natalie’s passion for animals continued when she moved to Miami in 2009 and began working as a veterinary technician – a job she continues to enjoy after many years in the field. Natalie also grew up owning and caring for dogs of many sizes and has been exposed to a wide variety of breeds and dispositions.

Barkhaus rates are as follows:

$30/night: Under 24lbs
$40/night: 25 to 64lbs
$50/night: Over 65lbs

*Extra $5/day added for puppies under 8 months old

Checkout is at 12pm on your pet’s last day. Otherwise a day care fee will be added. This means extra playtime, walks, dog park visits and most importantly LOVE & TLC.

Our rates reflect the amount of work, care and individual attention that your furry loved one will receive at a very competitive rate. While there are many other facilities around South Florida that offer similar services, we are confident that they do not offer the individual attention and care necessary to make your pet feel completely comfortable in his or her surroundings. This is NOT a house where we simply allow the dogs to have full freedom without any rules or boundaries and have them interact without any knowledge of proper canine behavior and respect. This is also NOT a warehouse-style facility where dogs are merely thrown together in a “cageless” environment to fend for themselves. We are comfortable with all breeds, sizes, and dispositions – from overly needy loving dogs to red zone aggression.

Remember that skimping on price is never a good idea when it comes to our furry loved ones. Unlike other hobbyists and "animal-lovers" here on this site, we are professionals and Barkhaus is a licensed and privately insured business.

We live, eat & sleep dogs here at Barkhaus, and your canine’s care here will be second best to NONE. We are good at what we do and take pride and passion in our work. Our reviews speak for themselves.

These guys were super nice to my dog and completely understanding of his quirks and behavioral issues. They accommodated my schedule and were available when I had questions. They gave me up to date photos and made sure to discuss any concerns they had about Leo. Great experience all around!
I felt very comfortable leaving Cooper with Natalie and Andres. I could tell they took the time to make sure he was comfortable with the other dogs and that they have the knowledge and experience to make dogs safe and comfortable in that environment. I picked up a very happy, tired pup. The pictures they take are amazing also! I do not live in Miami, but if I ever am back and need a place for Cooper to stay, it'll be at Barkhaus! :)
Andres was awesome! Always responded and answered all questions beforehand over email and text (this is extremely important so you know that the person is reliable).

Took great care of Bruno over 5 days. Bruno can be a handful and needs a ton of exercise. I know he got LOTS of exercise because although I exercise him a lot myself (usually twice a day myself, an hour each time at the dog park), he was a little more tired than usual when I got him back from Andres.

Also posted daily pics and some videos so I could keep updated on him.

Would highly recommend for anyone leaving their "kid" at a dog sitter.
