Welcome to Barking Good Times. I have been pet sitting for over 20 years. I first started caring for pets while their families went on vacation in middle school. I provide a loving and caring environment for you pet while you are away. I have grown very attached to my repeat guests. Each pup brings with them their own uniqueness to the house.

Barking Good Times has a good sized fenced in yard and walks are provided at least once if not twice a day. We are set in a very dog friendly neighborhood as sometimes neighboring pups try to come to visit and play after hearing all the fun in the yard. If your headed out for a vacation, we thank you for looking at our page, and also choosing us to care for your fur baby.

We had Jeannette come feed and let our pups out while we left them at home over Christmas. She was very accessible even though we reached out to her on short notice. She was also very flexible with her own Christmas plans to make sure our pups were taken care of. We plan on using her again in the future.
She was very good to work with me and made it easy to find a place for my dog to stay while I was away. Very nice yard and my dog enjoyed the opportunity to play with other dogs in a back yard once again. Will definitely reserve again in the future.
Great host who loves and cares for all dogs.
Jeanette was so accommodating to my schedule and I have now had Charlie vacay with her twice. She is close by and its easy access to her location for me. She has several dogs of her own and they all get along great with Charlie. I think Charlie likes going there and he always seems so excited and happy to see me when I return.
Thank you Jeanette for being a great host and dog lover.
This was the third time we left our 2 dogs with Jeannette. Our boxer(Jaunita), who is usually very timid around people she doesn't see very often went right up to Jeanette and started giving her kisses. In the pictures we were sent, our beagle (Petey) actually looked like he had a big smile on his face as he was running around in her backyard. I think they made some new friends while they were there too. I would definitely recommend Jeanette. We felt comfortable that our dogs were well taken care of.
Jeannette took wonderful care of our pup, Watson. She sent up pics throughout his stay for us to see what he was up to. Thank you for taking such good care of him for us!
Jeannette was excellent with Tyson. We needed a sitter at the last minute and she was available. She provided pictures throughout his stay and he slept like a baby when he got home.
Jeanette Rescued us as our original sitter canceled at the last minute. Berlin seem to have had a good time and we received pictures and follow ups from Jeanette.
Jeanette cared for wally as if he were one of her own. She had control of all the dogs, a great backyard and was super nice! She would send daily pictures and videos and would reply to my messages quickly. We can't wait to use her again!
Thank you Jeannette for taking care of Shadow. I can tell that she was happy while she was at your home.
Second time staying with her and my dog Bronxli loved it. Jennatte was nice enough to send pictures everyday so I always knew Bronxli was good.
Leaving my dog with Jeannette was the easiest and best decision for our vacation. I got daily photos so I didn't have to worry about how he was doing, which in turn took a lot of stress off my shoulders. Can't wait to book with her again!
Jeannette was by far one the best "Dog Watchers" this website has to offer in Richmond. She sent a couple of pictures each day while my pup was staying at her house. Will definitely use Jeannette again in the future as Mox didn't want to leave when I picked him up.

Thanks Jeannette.
Jeannette is obviously a dog and cat lover! She has 3 dogs of her own and they behave well with new dog friends! Toby is a bit skittish around other dogs, but after a day warmed up to the others. When we went to pick him up he was healthy and happy to see us, but went back to Jeannette (without encouragement) to be loved up and hugged before he left! We also loved the pictures, videos and updates Jeannette provided while we were gone! When needed, we will use her again!
Jeannette was wonderful to work with and Brody enjoyed his stay! He was able to run and play with other pups and came home happy (and tired!) She introduced him to other pups individually to ensure all dogs got along well. We got daily updates/pictures/or videos which was great for us to know he was enjoying himself! We would definitely book another stay!
Jeannette was an amazing host. She was very flexible with drop off and pick up, and was even accommodating when my travel plans shifted and I needed to leave my pup for an extra night. She sent pics or videos daily, and I could tell my pup was enjoying herself during her stay. She took the time to introduce my pup to the resident pups individually to make sure everyone was comfortable. I will definitely be using her services in the future.
Jeannette was awesome, while we were away, we got pictures and updates so we knew what was happening. Missy and Pearl needed medication everyday and Jeannette gave their medication to them everyday. I have no hesitation about leaving Missy and Pearl in the future.
Our dog loved the opportunity to run and play outdoors with Jeanette's dogs but also being allowed to snuggle inside too! He was happy and seemed well exercised when we picked him up after our week away and we'd definitely come back again next year!
Jeannette is awesome! She really loves dogs and my dogs loved their stay. She took extra time with Penny who is more sensitive to her environment to make sure she felt comfortable. I'd definitely recommend her!
Jeannette was awesome she sent pictures everyday of the crazy thing my dog was up to. My dog loved the time she stayed there and will be sending her back real soon.
This was the first time I used Dog Vacay and Jeannette was wonderful. Initially upon meeting, I received a good vibe from her. She is friendly and allowed Rio to warm up to the others dogs, within her home. I can really tell she has a passion for caring for dogs. Rio was very excited. My children and I enjoyed viewing the pictures while traveling. I felt safe knowing Rio was in good hands. I will def use her service again. In addition, she is sooooo conveniently located near my home.
This was our dogs' first stay with Jeannette, and they had a terrific experience! Jeannette is super friendly, knowledgeable, and great with dogs. She went out of her way to meet us and get to know the dogs (even walking several blocks to meet us in a snow storm). She is very kind and has a gentle hand, even taking extra steps to accommodate our previously-abused rescue pup.
Jeannette did an amazing job watching my 2 dogs. I could tell they had a blast! She even took special care of one of my adoptees who were abused and he warmed up quickly to her. Thank you again and we will definitely be using your services again
My dog Scooby stayed with Jeannette for the second time for 5 days during the Thanksgiving holiday. Scooby was right at home, as Jeannette has a very nice set-up for several dogs, with plenty of space in the back yard and a nice mix of dogs to keep Scooby socially happy. He was especially attached to one of her dogs, who remembered Scooby from his last stay; she took some cute pictures of the two of them. I will definitely try to have Scooby stay with Jeannette in the future if she has an opening, as he has now had two excellent experiences there. Thanks Jeannette.
Jeannette was fabulous. She is very attentive to your and your dogs needs. Our dog loved being with the other dogs. We would definitely use Jeannette again. Thank you, Thank you.
Jeanette was great and very accommodating of our schedule. Ringo had a great time, and I appreciated the pictures!
Jeannette S, Is Awesome.
Jeannette was a dream host. She had great communication and sent us pictures and videos daily about our dog. Our pup is a sweetheart and usually loves other dogs, but his first meeting with Jeannette's pets was a little rough- he was scared and it was raining (he hates water). I was afraid she wouldn't take him, but Jeannette understood his fear immediately, was unfazed, and assured me that the dogs would be best friends by the end of the week. She was right! The videos of them all playing together were the best! I highly recommend Jeannette as a host- she treated our dog as lovingly as we do.
Our dogs seemed to really enjoy their stay. Jeannette was very friendly and we loved the pictures of our dogs sent to us daily. I would definitely recommend Jeanette if you need a dog sitter.
Jeannette was awesome with my dog Bella. She took a really good care of my nervous girl given special snuggle times for her to feel at home. I really appreciate her patience. She's a true dog lover .
Jeannette was great! We are new to the area and she happily came over to meet us and Jasper before our reservation. I loved getting pictures of her visit to check on Jasper while we were away. She even taught him two new tricks!
Great stay at a very reasonable rate. Loved seeing pictures to know our pup was doing well.
Muddy had another great weekend with Jeannette and we are grateful that she always tries to work with our schedule.
Dorey loved her time with Jeanette, who was incredibly accommodating with my drop off schedule the night before my trip. I will definitely be using Jeannette again for any time I go out of town and need to put the pups somewhere fun and safe.
Wrigley had a great time with Jeannette! There were other dogs staying there as well, and Jeannette introduced them all while when we arrived. She sent us picture updates frequently and let Wrigley have some alone time because she can sometimes get overwhelmed by other dogs. We would definitely use Jeannette again!
Jeannette is the best! She was super accommodating, and was really easy to communicate with. She kept me up to date with pictures of my little dude every day. Not only is she nice, but she was amazing with Baxter. You could tell he had a blast with her. Would definitely recommend and use her again!
Jeannette was the best. She was very flexible with our hectic schedule. Muddy really enjoyed his weekend with Jeannette and even though he was glad to be home, he was hesitant to leave her.
Murphy loved her stay with Jeannette, she came home exhausted from playing with her dogs and running around in her yard! Jeannette was so sweet, and even sent pictures of all the fun Murphy was having. Murphy didn't even notice we were gone!
Good house for a dog with a large backyard. With three dogs that live in the house, there was plenty of playtime available for my pooch.
Second time we left Hershey with Jeannette. Hershey loves hanging out with her!
It was Leo and Zoey's second visit at Jeannette's house, and they had a great time! I loved all the pictures sent along the way to show me they weren't missing me at all! Thanks Jeannette, for looking after my old man so well!! He had some eating, and ear issues. She kept in touch and kept me informed. And most important, she made sure my pups were happy! Thanks!!
Our dog had a great time at Jeannette's! She and her dogs and cats were great hosts. She sent us some cute pics of our dog while we were away. We will use her again and would recommend to others!
Jeannette was great with our family dog. She's a wonderful person. I would leave my dog Chase with her anytime.
Jeannette is the best! She is always so accommodating and the pricing is very reasonable. My dog had such a great time running around with her pups and has always looked forward to visiting her again, would definitely recommend!
Jeanette took excellent care of Max and Ozzy...I'm sure they were spoiled rotten! I was happy they got some other dog interaction with the house fur kids. Jeanette was always quick to answer my messages and loved the photo updates; will recommend her to others and will be back the next time we are in need of care for our fur babies!
A nice fenced backyard with good pets and a responsible owner! Also was glad to add an extra day when my flight got in later than expected
Jeannette did a wonderful job of taking care of Scooby, my Mountain Cur. She is very adept at taking care of dogs and her three dogs got alone great with Scooby. He was right at home and when I picked him up, after greeting me, he ran to try to go play with the other dogs again. The pictures she sent were also very reassuring, showing how comfortable Scooby was. I hope there is an available slot at Jeannette's home the next time we need to leave Scooby behind. Many thanks, Jeannette.
Jeanette was AWESOME with my pup! I appreciated the pictures that she sent while I was gone, and I knew he was in excellent hands. My only fear is that he might be a little bored now that he doesn't have her dogs to play with! I would highly recommend her, and she would be my first choice of people to leave my dog with if I have to go out of town again. Five stars!!
Jeannette was wonderful! We are so happy we left our dog with her and will certainly do so again in the future!
Jeannette was amazing! It's obvious she is an animal lover, and she took great care of my two pups. When one of my dogs was having trouble settling in, she called to discuss what she could do to help. She also sent pictures throughout their stay so I knew my babies were doing okay. Highly recommend!
Jeanette watched all of our doggies for almost two weeks while we went on a long family trip. A couple of our dogs are seniors, and Jeanette not only gave them extra attention, she showered them with love and made sure that they got along with her own dogs. During our journey, Jeanette also responded to any "check-in" emails we sent, picked up extra dog food on her own, and gave one of our dogs medicine. She sent videos and photos of the dogs enjoying plenty of outdoor play time, and notified us immediately when one of our pups experienced a stomach problem. In addition to ALL of these wonderful things, Jeanette groomed our dog who had experienced a tummy issue before we picked him up so that we would not have to deal with the yuckiness. Jeanette was reliable, pleasant, gracious, very easy to work with, and we would choose her again any time to watch over our dogs. Thank you!
Jeannette was so wonderful with Spencer, and she sent us pictures throughout his stay. He clearly had a good time playing with her and her dogs. He was "dog tired" when we got him home. We will definitely use her services again. Thank you so much!
Jeannette was really nice and very understanding of our very crazy schedule. She was able to pick Muddy up from my home and take him and care for him at hers. I have been having trouble with my puppy eating his food and she was awesome with him. She sat with him and helped him feel more comfortable so he can calm down and eat. I will be using her services again.
