My puppy had a wonderful time staying with Barbara. Thanks so much Barbara. It was so great to not have to worry about my baby while on vacation.
Bubblegum had a great time with Barbara. He stayed with her for 9 days while we went to DisneyWorld. We received text updates from Barbara while we were away letting us know how Bubblegum was doing. First time using Vacay and it worked out wonderfully. Would definitely rebook with Barbara in the future.
Great experience, Barbara was happy to accommodate all our needs on short notice, which we appreciated.
Barbara was amazing! she took great care of my two girls, and muppy my moms dog as well and muppy we were worried about with separation anxiety but he was loved on and cared for wonderfully! We will use Barbara again!!! She sent us updates and was always a text away. It made our vacation so carefree not having to worry about the dogs and them being well cared for. Barbara was awesome!
We love bringing our dogs to Barbras place and we know the dogs love going there! Barbra is always happy to see our pups and we know they will always be well taken care of and pleasantly exhausted when we get back.
Barbara and Vince are clearly dog lovers. My super lazy old puggle seemed to love her stay here. They showered her with love and attention.
Barbara and Vince were great with my 14 year old mix, Nugget. Showed him tons of love and never left him alone. It seemed like he wasn't overly anxious to leave when I came to get him, definitely a great sign of being well cared for. Would definitely use Barbara again in the future!
Very sweet, looks like mini had a good time! Easy to drop off & pick up!
Barbara is easy to work with and very sweet to my old man dog hehe! I also love how close she is to me :-)
Our little fur girl was completely spoiled at Barbara's! She loved the doggy door and spent a lot of time outside watching the birds and squirrels. She was happy to see me when I picked her up, but I could tell she was sad to leave her new friends too.
Barbara was great with my Q-Tip! I even got a photo in the short time I was away!
Barb was amazing to my dog they have a nice fenced yard very clean home. My Dog was well cared for here. Many returns :)
Wonderful long stay. Barbara was great and very flexible. She sent us updates on the pups and responded to our messages right away. Will definitely use again. :)
My pups didn't want to leave. I will absolutely use Barbara again!! THANK YOU!
Barbara was amazing!!! I was nervous every about one of my 3 dogs who has bad separation anxiety and Barbara made sure to comfort him and he was fine! The other 2 were fine as well. Barbara sent us pictures and updates while we were gone and it was such a weight lifted to know the dogs were cared for and were fine! I will use Barbara again for sure!!!
Barbara has been a great dog sitter for me twice now and I plan to use her next time as well.
Barbara was wonderful. I received texts and pics everyday I was out of town. I know my Tyler was loved and taken very good care of. I will be using her in the future. Thank you Barbara. Christina
Barbara was very courteous and accommodating. She sent updates daily for Kosmo's stay and took care of his meds twice daily. I would recommend her to anyone needing this service.
Max was very well taken care of. Barbara and her husband truly are dog lovers & very nice people! Thank you!!!
Barbara and Vince were great with Pooh Bear and Cole!! Our dogs had a great time staying with them, and were treated really well. Barbara is a dog lover through and through!! We would love to have our dogs come and stay again!!
Teddy loved his stay with Barbara. When we picked him up, he was very happy and not stressed out. She texted me and sent pics thru out the days so I would know how he was. I really enjoyed that!
My dog Mr. Darcy did great with Barbara. They let him be an old man and were very supportive in giving him his meds and watching his diet. He was happy and content when I picked him up and I plan to have them keep him on future trips.
My older poodle, Gage, and I love Barbara! She is so sweet and loving! I know Gage has a sweet buddy to hang out with when I leave him with Barbara.
Barbara was accommodating, flexible and was a good sitter. Our pet seemed to like her when we dropped her off and when we picked her up.
Roscoe had a great time and was well taken care of. This was our first time using Dog Vacay and leaving our dog with someone else. Roscoe wasn't ready for his vacation to be over!! We will definitely use Barbara again!!
My dogs were happy and tired when I picked them up from Barbara's. She sent me a photo and an update everyday. She has a dog door to her backyard that my dogs enjoyed.
Barbara took excellent care of my fella Mocha. He was happy as a clam. Learned to go in and out of the dog door. Barbara send us text message everyday with a photo, like a mini blog speaking from puppy's perspective. Very loving and caring.
Very friendly. Responsible. Our dog's stay was a first and worked out very well.
Barbara did a fantastic job watching Penny while we were away. She was well cared for and we received updates and pictures to let us know she was doing fine. After having mixed experiences with dog boarding in the past, it was nice for Penny to have a good experience and allow us to enjoy our trip without worry. I highly recommend Barbara and her home for your dog.
Barbara was very nice and seemed to genuinely care for our two dogs. When we picked up our dogs, they didn’t run to the door to leave, which was a good sign.
I left my 16y/o best friend with Barbara with a bit of hesitation as I was leaving her in a new environment for 9 days. Barbara kept me updated throughout my trip with pics and cute sayings from my dog like "Hi Mom, having a great time on my Vacay. Hope you are having a great time too...CJ"! Upon my return I was Pleasantly surprised to find my lite girl so relaxed and happy!!! Never showing any signs of trauma or drama due to my absence as was the case with dog sitters in the past! I cannot say enough about the love and personal attention Barbara gave to my CJ, and I HIGHLY recommend her to spoil your pet on your next Doggie Vacay!!!
