About Barbara

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
For 15 years we owned an American Staffordshire Terrier (Pit Bull). Once we boarded her in a kennel while away for a week. When we returned she was so tramatized from all the other dogs' barking that she was afraid to come out of her crate. I never put her through that again. If I can give a dog a loving home while their owners are away, it would make me (and the dog) feel great. I miss having a dog and would love to spoil yours while you are on vaca. I've listed an older picture of our previously owned Pit with my son when he was a young boy. The other picture is another one of my favorite dogs - Elle. A sweet little girl who was owned by a family member. Our home is tiled so we don't have to worry about "accidents" and there is plenty of lawn and room in our home to play. We also live on a dead end street so there is very minimal traffic. We are so looking forward to hosting your baby!

There are no words to express my gratitude to Barbara and Mike for the TLC they showed to my 14 year old Havanese, Cabbey Rose. Receiving daily photos of Cabbey was so comforting and appreciated. I know our next visit, which is already scheduled, will be just as successful as this past one. Thanks Barbara and Mike. Happy Holidays...see you soon! Love, Carole and Cabbey Rose.

I read all of Barbara's reviews so I felt no need to meet and greet. I made the date to drop the dog off then called her the day of to see what time I could drop him off. I was shocked to find I had put in the wrong weekend. She said no problem. She is wonderful and everything her reviews say about her is right on. I have had really great luck with DogVacay sitters, but, she is the best. I will always try to schedule with her first and pay better attention to my dates. A wonderful experience for my dog and myself.

You can tell with the first "meet and greet" that Barbara will take good care of your dog. She seems to have everything ready and planned for, but what is very obvious is that she really loves dogs. Maggie is a very active curious puppy and Barbara walked her faithfully, and more important played with her. I would not hesitate to have Maggie stay with Barbara again.

Barbara C. offered just the kind of care that our 12 year old cockapoo craves: long walks, a warm welcome, plenty of attention, and a quiet atmosphere. We look forward to leaving Sophie with Barbara the next time we leave home.
Cooper our 4lb, 5 month old Shih tzu spent 10 days with Barbara. He had the time of his life on his doggy vacation. He received a lot of love and attention which a new puppy needs. Barbara provided a safe loving environment that included many trips outside to play and go potty, spa day which included brushing his coat and visits from Barbara's family and friends. Cooper felt very much at home at her house he ate well and slept through the night. Barbara sent updates and photos of Cooper every day which made my seven year old feel much better. We had a wonderful vacation knowing our baby was well taken care of. Thank you Barbara. Cooper will be going back for another doggy vacay in November he can't wait!

I'm very happy with this Grammy and Grampy! Nice pace, nearby, clean. Daisy seemed very happy and I received a daily photo with reassuring words. Thanks Grammy Barbara and Grampy Mike!
Barbara was great. She was able to do a quick meet and greet before we took off and our buddy Jacko seemed to love to explore. He got more attention with her and Mike than he does at home so he's been a happy spoiled boy since coming home. She sent daily updates (both pictures and notes) while we were away giving us preside of mind that he was being cared for very well.

Barbara and her husband obviously enjoy having dogs in their home. We got daily updates and were assured that our Ollie was happy and in good hands. We will not hesitate to Vacay him there again!
Barb and her husband Mike were just wonderful with our dog. He adjusted very well and received lots of attention and care from both Barb and Mike. I will most certainly use Barb in the future! She was also very willing to have us pick him up very late in the evening after we returned from a wedding rather than the next day. Thank you, Barb and Mike!

Our Sophie was in doggie heaven last week! Her stay with Barbara was the perfect dog care we needed! We had never left her before-- but Barbara provided lots of TLC for our old pup! Highly recommend using Barbara-- book early, because she does such a wonderful job and she's quite busy!

Barbara is amazing! She was very accomodating with my pick-up and drop-off times. And it was clear Scooter received personalized, loving care while he was in her care - which is really all that matters.
Barbara is very kind and obviously a dog lover. Our old man, a 15 yr old lab, immediately walked in at our initial visit and made himself comfortable and was at ease immediately. Barbara was wonderful in giving us updates on how he was doing and it made me relax during our trip as I knew he had good company and a comfortable place to stay. I would book with Barbara again without any question for the next trip we take.

I was very hesitant to leave my dog with anybody and I definitely didn't want to put her in a kennel being a small poodle where there would be constant barking. By accident I found dogvacay & was very happy to see a company like this. Scrolling through the many options I came across Barbara and love the fact that in her little bio it says that she'd had the same experience and didn't want other dogs to be traumatized in kennels by the constant barking ... That was the first thing that caught my eye. Also the reviews were very good about her and I like the idea she had tile floors since my dog was only 10 mths. old & she only would take care of one dog at a time unless there were two from the same family . Barbara sent me daily emails and photos which were so sweet and made me very relaxed and happy .. Actually she was having such a good time I commented to Barbara I might have to drag her out of there LOL . That wasn't too far from the truth because when I went to get my pup her husband was home and he had her on a leash to walk her out to my car for me and when I picked up my dog she actually started crying a little and she cried a little when we pulled away from the house which made me sad in a way but very very happy in another knowing she was so loved and cared for and happy at Barbara's home.
There is no doubt in my mind I will always use Barbara & her husband when I go away because they are the best ! Thank you again to Barbara, her husband and to DV!

Prior to our getaway I had a meet and greet with Barbara. It was so nice to see how compassionate and loving she was to Olive. I felt comfortable leaving her and received daily updates/photos to see how well cared for she was in our absence. It made for a wonderful vacation with no concerns for Olive's welfare and happiness. I would highly recommend Barbara and her husband for your dog's vacay.

Barbara did a wonderful job over the holidays with our pup! She was treated like one of the family & came home happy and healthy. Barbara sent us daily updates and gave our girl daily walks. It made being away at the holidays much easier :)
Another great dogvacay at Barbara and Mike's. They were very accommodating and Athena seemed very contented on the ride back home.
Barbara and Mike are great! They took care of our pug for three days during our daughter's wedding weekend. They are very nice, accommodating and extremely responsive to every need we had for our pug. Barbara and Mike have great calm demeanors for dog/pet care. We will use them again definitely!!

Barbara was wonderful. She took our newly adopted foster pup on short notice and I was instantly positive he was in the right hands.. I would highly recommend Barbara to anyone who is looking for that special someone to look after their fur babies. A definite 5 stars from us. Thank you Barbara.

Any trepidations I may have had about leaving my big fur baby greyhound for the first time on an overnight were assuaged even before arriving at Barbara's home when she asked me to please bring Timmy's favorite brush so that she could provide a 'spa experience' to help alleviate any homesickness!! And it just got better!! Barbara is not only very canine understanding, knowledgeable and smart but she also truly loves her four footed charges! From the pictures Barbara sent to alleviate MY nervousness as well as Timmy's calm, happy demeanor when I picked him up, Timmy has clearly found his Doggy Grammy!!

Amazing as always! Bruno's pics show he has a good time because he is always so excited to see her when we drop him off. He has great walks with him and is very affectionate!
She is great! Lots of pics and check ins. Bruno wags his tail when she's around so I know he's really happy:)
Barbara kept Maggie for 1 week for me. Maggie has never been away from me, I've had her since 10 weeks, she's now 5 yrs. Barbara was welcoming, with a calmness that left me comfortable leaving her. She can be shy around new people, but went right to Barbara, who ended up sitting on the floor with her, during our meet and greet. Daily emails and pictures, eased my mind, also went in with double ear infection, so had drops daily. Thank you Barbara and Dogvacay

My two dogs had a great time. I was updated regularly with pics of them having a good time. One dog needed special meds and bathing and Barbara took care of him as if he were her own. My dogs came home happy! I know my dogs were in good hands with Barbara.
