About Barbara

To say I love animals would be an understatement. I don't ever remember not having a dog in my life. I am a former special-needs teacher, now retired.....well, sort of retired. I live on a small farm with various farm animals. My other business "Barb's Barn", offers kids the opportunity to learn about and experience farm life and farm animals. The hour "Fun on the Farm" sessions are by appointment only and the visits are occasional, not frequent, so it does not interfere with any doggie boarders. In the morning, they will enjoy a walk on a leash around the pasture and barn before the horses, ponies, and mini donkeys are let out of their stalls, and before the chickens and ducks are let out of their coop. This allows your furry family member to get accustomed to the 'new' farm smells. Because every dog is different and has a unique personality, that will determine whether or not the dog can be off a leash while my farm friends are out. My dogs are never outside when I am not. When I am in, they are in. My home is small and not fancy, but my canine companions are relaxed, comfortable, and you can be worry-free that your furry family members will be loved and well cared for. Because I am home most of the time, I can accommodate their outside potty break schedule however often they require. I also have a pond which my Sam and Gigi love to swim in. If your dog is a swimmer, he or she, too, might enjoy a cool dip in the pond. Please let me know if your precious pup would enjoy a visit in the country. If your pooch would be more comfortable in his or her own home, I would be more than happy to come to your house.

Barbara is the best host we've ever had. My dogs love her. I have to say she is the only person we feel comfortable with to take care of our dogs when we are away.
Barbara was amazing as always!. My husband and I know that our dogs love her and have lots of fun with Sammy and Gigi.
Barbara did a great job as always. We are recurrent clients and this time we actually left our 2 dogs for boarding. They were very tired when we pick them up. I am sure she had her hands full!
