About Belinda

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am currently taking reservations for spring break.

Consider my home, your pet’s home in a loving, peaceful retreat for your pet when you’re away.

When your loved ones stay with me, I provide a high-quality guarantee that dogs and cats will enjoy their stay. I care for each guest in my house; I spend time with each one personally by giving them one-on-one attention. I offer discounts for multiple nights and/or bookings.

Bonus Services (included in all packages):
-->Daily picture updates
-->Follow up email and picture collage
-->Personalized Facebook photo album

Amenities include:
-->Clean, pet-friendly home (my home is their home)
-->Large, pet-friendly and fenced backyard
-->Doggie door for exit and/or entry

A snapshot of what our day may look like:
My house is clean and pet friendly. Dogs are welcome on the couch and even sleep with me in my bed. On rainy days you might catch us snuggled up on the couch eating doggie snacks and watching the dog classic “Turner and Hooch”. I keep Kleenex close by for me and the dogs to use during the sad part at the end, it’s a very emotional moment for us. On warm sunny days you can catch us in the backyard playing fetch or just taking a nap in the shade. Sometimes at night we pretend we are camping around the campfire and I tell scary ghost dog stories.

Pet Requirements:
-->Vaccinations up-to-date
-->Male Dogs Neutered (no marking)
-->Potty Trained

I work full time Monday through Friday so I am gone from 7:30am - 5:30pm, but we all know that our pets typically sleep 12-14 hours per day. When I get home in the evening it is play time.

You can read my reviews and see that I go above and beyond for each pet. I love what I do and it shows thru the pets and how much they enjoy coming back each time. I will provide personal and loving attention for your pets & peace of mind for you. I will provide references upon request.

Dog Reviews:
*****Woof, woof, rufffff bark BARK BARK, grrrrrr. Bark!! Bark bark bark, woof woof!!!!

*****First off, let me start by saying I was a hard sell. I only like being with my family and no one else but when I stayed with Belinda from Barks and Purrs Retreat….WOW, I was sold. I had so much fun. She gave me lots of belly rubs and we talked for hours. She would point out where the squirrels were hiding in the back yard and even let me bark at a few cats. I had the best time. Now when my mom and dad ask if I want to go on a dog vacation, I tell them only if I'm going to Belinda's at Barks & Purrs.

*****I had the best time with Belinda at Barks and Purrs Retreat, I give her a paws up on my stay.

*****I love Belinda, I had the best time ever, she gives the best belly rubs. I highly recommend her.

I believe my dog prince had the time of his life. Prince was exhausted when we finally returned to our house from all the fun he had at Belinda's. Prince loved his mini vacation
Belinda was awesome and took amazing care of my puppy! She was so tired after the weekend from playing so much with the other dogs.
She is awesome. she kept me updated with photos everyday and took great great of my dogs.
