About Brian

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi our names are Brian and Sheila! We have over 15 years of experience with all types of dogs and would love to meet your cuddly bundle of happiness!

We live on the 2nd floor (of 3) in a 1,200 sq. ft. condo where your dog can chill on the couch, roam free around the entire place, or hang out on our gated balcony.

We live two blocks from Humboldt Park where there are trails around ponds, tons of people, smells, wildlife, and exciting adventures! And if your dog likes to veg out, we're big fans of that too!

Because I work from home, I can provide our wiggly-tail friend with 4+ walks a day. My wife is usually home after normal business hours so she will be around for evening or weekend activities.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions! Please note I do not take dogs that are not potty trained.

Brian and Sheila are very nice and welcoming hosts. They have a comfortable and stylish 2nd story apartment with a balcony for dogs to get some bonus sunshine. During their home check with me, Brian and Sheila had two guest dogs that seemed very content. Brian works from home, so he's around most of the time to provide extra care. If you're looking for a regular host, I would really recommend these two!

Brian and Sheila watched our golden retriever puppy, Gordie, for a week while my husband and I were away for our wedding. We are so incredibly pleased with how well they treated and took care of Gordie. We missed him as soon as we hopped on the plane, and Brian and Sheila were great about providing updates and photos. Gordie appeared to have a ball, making friends at the dog park and even learning a new trick! We could not be happier and will definitely book at Humboldt Bark again in the future :) We highly recommend Brian and Sheila!!

Brian and Sheila were great hosts. Brian works from home, so he was very attentive to our two pups. They went on walks and (when it wasn't raining) played fetch in the park. Brian and Sheila also sent us daily updates to let us know how the pups were doing. It was comforting to know that our dogs were being treated so well and were enjoying themselves. We highly recommend them.

Brian and Sheila are fantastic dog sitters. Our pups Tucker and Dingo definitely enjoyed their three week stay. Brian kept us up-to-date with daily messages with pictures. The pups got to go on regular walks, park visits, and adventures. We will definitely be booking in more time with them in the future. Thanks Brian and Sheila!
