About Barbara

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
The important thing about selecting a sitter is to find someone who you can trust to care for your pet and your home so you can relax while you are away. For the past twenty years, I have worked with animals both as a trainer and owner. It is important that your pets daye be filled with walks, playtime, , lots of attention and meals on schedule to fit your pets regular routine.
Each dog is different, but at they all need love, care, and attention to be happy and healthy. Needless to say, I am very passionate about pets; caring for them and providing them the same love they provide their owners. Playtime, hugs, petting, story time, and belly scratches are always included at no extra charge.
I am available on short notice and can assist with transportation to the groomer, the vet, the dog park or just a ride in the car. A complimentary "Meet and Greet" will be arranged for your peace of mind. Why take a chance? Know that your friend will be safe while you are away. Like a nanny for your little buddy; caring for them they way you would yourself - just think of me as your very own Mrs. Dog-fire.
Note: I also love cats and offer cat sitting as well as dog sitting. I am happy to stay in your home or visit your kitty (ies) while you are away.

Our puppy Peter had stayed with Barbara and her daughters once before. When I went to drop him off, he literally leaped out of his carrier, started licking one of her daughters and was so excited!!

We know he loves it here and he will definitely be staying with them again!

Our puppy Peter absolutely LOVED staying with Barbara and her daughters. We received daily "pupate" pictures he had a blast. Barbara and her daughters were so helpful and you can tell how much they love dogs.

He will definitely be staying here again when we have to go out of town!
