About Barbara

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello and welcome to Comfy Dog Pet Sitting. I am Barbara. I have 15 yrs experience with animals. I have been involved with a couple different rescues and have saved and found homes for over 100 animals within the last 2 yrs. I love all sizes of dogs and really love every type of dog. I have a 6 bedroom house that I share with my mom who is a groomer and my sister. Dogs will never be left alone and have access to our big fenced in back yard anytime. If your dog has a behavioral issue that's no problem either. I have the resources to keep them seperate and safe. Please think about booking with me today.

Barbara was a perfect Host. She was so flexible. I got caught up in the snow storm on the way back and she accommodated my dog for another day just fine. so flexible and highly recommended.
Great experience with a last-minute booking with Barbara. Our boarding plans fell through 2 days before our trip (Thanksgiving week!) and I thought for sure we would looking at canceling. Barbara answered our vacay request within minutes and we started exchanging info about Stella, our 4-year old pittie. Stella isn't accustomed to being around other dogs and she's always been miserable in boarding situations at our vet - hearing other dogs barking and not having much human interaction made her anxious and stressed out. It was so different at Barbara's house. Stella got a ton of human attention AND got exposed to other friendly doggies in a calm setting with plenty of supervision. She ate the whole time (usually goes on a hunger strike) and came home content and tired (from playing). Although Barbara's home is a drive for us, we will be booking future vacays with her - the drive is worth seeing Stella so much happier during our trips.

Athena loved staying with Barbara, and I appreciated the updates and photos I received while I was out of town for the holiday. Would definitely recommend!
Barbara was quick to respond and covered by everything needed for Charlee's stay. She made sure that he adjusted well to the new environment. Upon pickup, Barbara shared some vet knowledge for the future care of my pup.

I will definitely consider going through Barbara again.

Barbara was great! She had a great setup and was very mindful of mixing different personalities (since she has so many dogs at her home at once). She has crates so that when she moves dogs around, they are all happy and safe.

She sent me pics that were adorable during Loki's stay and noted some behaviors in Loki that we should work on (he has separation anxiety) and how to address it. She was a wealth of knowledge!

She sent me a pic of Loki asleep on her bed- pooped out after an evening with her, playing ball. I appreciated all the care and fine attention to Loki :)

Barbara was awesome. My dog had a great time and I would definitely recommend her to my friends.
Barbara took great care of our babies while we were away! She kept us up-to-date while we traveled and was extremely quick to respond when we texted her. I love that she sent us pictures of our three dogs too! I will definitely use Barbara again!

Also, her mom is a groomer and she did an awesome job grooming Sasha, our Shih-tzu.

Thanks Barbara!

Barbara is the real deal. We have a young rescue dog with some behavioral issues related to his separation anxiety, and this was our first time leaving him with anyone other than our friends and family. We chose Barbara for her incredible depth of knowledge, compassion, and experience with dogs of all shapes, sizes, and personality types. She put us at ease immediately, and we were confident during our entire 9 days away that our best buddy was safe and well cared for. She continued the training we'd started with him, and even had some helpful tips upon our return. If you're looking for a sitter who truly understands dogs and can handle any situation that comes their way, Barbara's the one. We'll certainly trust her with our pup again in the future.

Barbara was great! Very knowledgeable and friendly.
This was a very easy place for my dogs to be. One had never been boarded, so I was a little nervous, but they both did fine. I think having them in someone's house is much better then a kennel and She has a yard, and lives on a quiet street, which is great. Barbara has a lot of experience, so that made it easy on me. They both seemed to be very comfortable in the photos she sent.

Her mom's a groomer, so my dog came home looking great as well.

I had Barbara watch my two pugs and she did a fabulous job. She sent me lots of fun photos of them following her around and even sleeping on the bed! Barbara treated them like her own dogs, lots of love and care.
Barbara was great - she was very communicative and Nala came home happy and healthy. I'd highly recommend her services!
Barbara provided very personable service and welcomed our dog into her home. She was well organized and gave us daily updates. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a knowledgable dog sitter who loves what she does.
Barbara was a wealth of information and is highly knowledgeable about dogs. My dog appeared to have a fantastic time, socializing with other dogs, and even with cats! She came home happy and a little tired, I think, from all the frolicking!
Barbara helped me out of a jam took great care of Moose. He came home all played out.
Barbara was an amazing doggi sitter! She kept me updated on how Rambo ( my blue pit) was doing even got him to pose for some cute pics she sent out in a collage,adorable! and when It was time for him to get picked up she had recently bathed him so he came home fresh and clean!, very reasonably priced for the services and I was able to use a coupon so she some extra cash! Thanks Barbara for the amazing job, will defiantly take rambo back!

Roxy's vacay with Barbara was GREAT! It was my first time leaving her with someone she did not already know, so I was a bit worried how she would do. Turns out I had nothing to worry about.

Barbara is awesome. She gave Roxy tons of attention, letting her sleep on the bed with her and everything. I got picture updates every day - even within an hour of the initial drop off (which really helped calm my nerves). Her mother is a groomer, so Roxy got a haircut and bath and looked great - and great pricing too!

At the end of the stay, Barbara had some observations for me about Roxy's general health that I may not have noticed - she was really paying such close attention to her and noticed some things that I certainly had not!

She was so generous - She found that Roxy preferred the soft food that she used - and gave me half a roll of it to continue feeding her with it. Totally unexpected and just such a kind gesture.

I so appreciate everything she did - what a great experience. I will absolutely be sending Roxy for another vacay with her in the future and will be passing her info along to others.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! Thank you Barbara :)

Barbara was great! She knew what to do when my dog was acting up. She also taught me some ne things and gave me advice. I would definitely book again!
Barbara was Awesome! She had helpful ideas on a variety of puppy issues too. Will definitely use her again for our Dogyvacay needs.
Barbara was a life saver for us as we had a last minute need for someone to watch our Shepherd/Beagle mix for one night. She was very quick to respond, and has a lot of experience with different behaviors in dogs. She updated us with an email in the late evening to let us know how the day went, and was flexible in pickup time. I would definitely recommend her.

We don't leave our dog often but we were so happy to find Barbara. We left Alex for 3 days but felt comfortable the whole time because we received updates and pictures. Alex also came home bathed, brushed, happy & tired! We would recommend Barbara!
This was my first time leaving my furbaby in someone else's care, and Barbara was great! Her knowledge of and experience with dogs was obvious upon first meeting her, and she sent me updates with pictures and videos whenever I asked. Stella came home tired and happy after playing with other pups all weekend. I will definitely use Barbara's services again.

Barbara was fantastic. She sent me up to date progress reports on my dogs and included photos. My dog Deacon seemed very happy and was in a healthy environment. I'm certainly pleased with the experience.
Barbara was great! We needed her to makes 3 visits to our ACD while we took a short trip. He is wary of new people so she suggested that she show up early and spend some time with him before we leave. A few hours and many dog treats later they were best friends.
