About Barbara

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Superb environment for your 4-legged family members! Large ranch-style non-smoking house with large fenced back and front yards adjacent to 10 grassy acres of exercise and fun. I am conveniently located 6 miles off the 40 freeway on the way to the Grand Canyon and 15 minutes from Laughlin.

I also provide a more sedentary visit for your older pets or those with health problems who prefer just to chill and be loved.

Retired but active 60-something animal-loving Grandma is available 24/7 to make your dog's stay safe, fun and secure. You can rest assured your pet will have as much fun as you will on your vacation. I have no other animals to distract me from caring for your treasured pets.

I have been dog-sitting my children's dogs for 10 years when they are on vacation.

I will text or email videos and photos of your pups enjoying their vacay each day so you can enjoy your trip or workday worry-free.

Miles had a great stay. Barbara sent images of Miles every day.
We could not have asked for a better place for Marley. Barbara is so friendly and caring, and her home is perfect! Marley was excited to be there and the pictures Barbara sent showed a happy dog. She loves walks and water - had both.
What a great experience! Barbara did a great job. The dogs took to her & the house very well. We will be using Barbara again.
Our boys were happy and had plenty of exercise. They will be staying with Barbara again.
Five paws for Barbara! This was our first dog vacay with Barbara, and as a dog parent I am always anxious about leaving my Bichon, Panda Bear, at a new place. There was no need to be concerned, however, because Panda loved it! She had a perfect place to get inside and out as needed, went for walks and to the dog park. Barbara kept me appraised of how she was doing with texts and pics. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this sitter to anyone needing a kind environment to leave their pet worry free.
We never leave our dog Pepper. He goes everywhere with us. So when we were invited to Thanksgiving at our family's home in Phoenix...they gave cats and Pepper wasn't invited, we panicked!! Thank goodness for Barbara!! She welcomed Pep into her home like he was family. No kennels, no cages. She took him in lots of walks and she even sent us a photo of Pepper snuggling with her son-in-law on her sofa! Clean, organized home. Lovely experience!! Thank you Barbara!
We were SO pleased with Barbara, her home environment and her pet loving personality. She made us and our beloved Golden, "Reba" feel so comfortable in choosing a pet sitter. We are traveling from Canada and had to leave our pet for a couple of days. Having a loving home environment is far better than a kennel and Reba really did have a mini-vacation. We highly recommend a pet vacation with Barbara, she is professional, caring and a terrific lady. We had 100% confidence in our decision and would use her again in a heart beat. Thanks Barbara! Kevin, Cella and "Reba" the Golden Retriever.
Barbara did it again. We were able to go away for 5 nights without a worry. Our pups were great when we came home and seemed to feel very comfortable in her home. She kept us posted everyday, I think they might even get more exercise with her sometimes. She is wonderful, her home is wonderful. I can not say enough good about her. Thank You very much Barbara. Lori and Tim
Oh my gosh! I cannot say enough good things about Barbara at DogVacay! This was my first time boarding my dogs. So I was a little bit nervous about leaving them with someone who I didn't know. But Barbara has a warm caring way about her so she quickly made me feel very comfortable.
My three dogs one German Shepherd and two small Chihuahuas stayed with her for 2 days. And periodically through both days I received text messages with pictures and videos letting me know how they were doing. Barbara has a beautiful comfortable home a nice relaxing backyard with a gorgeous view of a nice big lake.
I look forward to taking my dogs to Barbara at DogVacay again. It was absolutely the stress-free experience I was looking for. ☺
I have had my adopted dog for 3 months and this was her first time away from me. Barbara has a very nice home and grounds. I got updates via text with pics of how Mya was doing. She was with Barbara for 5 nights and it appears there was no stress and she was well taken care of. I would use her again.
Barbara is an excellent doggie sitter! Her home is extremely dog friendly. Barbara kept us posted on how our ( somewhat spoiled) pet was doing with text and photos. With another trip upcoming Ready to book Barbara again with ease that our Skruffy is in good hands.
First I want to say I was happy to find doggy vacay, and even happier when I found Barbara. There are no words to describe what a wonderful person Barbara is, I felt so comfortable with her and leaving my dog with her. She sent me daily pictures of my dog while he went for his daily walks, my dog looked so relaxed in all the pictures. Her home was so welcoming and beautiful i knew then my dog was going to enjoy his stay...if there was a 10 star button she would definitely get that rating from me. I visit laughlin yearly and without a doubt I will be contacting Barbara again....thank you!!
Barbara deserves 10 stars as she was beyond PAWSOME! She was thoughtful in sending us morning and evening updates on our German shepherd which included photos and videos with detailed messages. Her home was welcoming, very clean and well-organized.
This was our first time taking our Pepper to a sitter but we had our meet and greet and Barbara was very nice and Pepper Loved her and we took him for an over night stay and she sent us pictures witch put our minds at rest. Barbara Has a very nice home very very clean and we will be taking pepper back very soon Pepper Loves You and Thank you for taking good care of our little fur baby
We were very nervous about leaving our dog's with a stranger but Barbara was a god send for us we would have had to cancel our trip. She was awesome with the dog's. We will definitely be using her service again.
Barbara was fantastic. She was so friendly and thoughtful. She provided the best care for our dog and sent us pictures to keep us posted. I'd use her again and again. Thank you!! Marcia
Barbara is wonderful, she really cared about our dogs. It was really nice to take a trip and not worry if they were taken care of. She kept me posted morning and night, also with pictures. Our two dogs really like her and they came home happy. She is my new and only dogsitter from now on. I could tell they were very well taken care of and very comfortable in Barbara's home. Thanks Barbara
Woof ... Barbara is unequivocally the best! She is attentive to my needs, takes long walk with me and drives me to the Colorado River so I can lower my body temperature in the fresh water. I love her. Woof Jimmy Choo. XXX
Barbara is very thoughtful and caring and was considerate of our unusual situation. We look forward to the next time that we can use her services.
I wish I could give more than 5 stars! Our sweet baby girl, Jade, had a great time at the pooch resort while the rest the family went on vacation. We received multiple photos every day and Jade looked happy and content. It was really nice to know that she was so well taken care of. We'll definitely be back for our next vacation!
Barbara was awesome! It was obvious our dog had a great time while there. I appreciated the adorable pictures she sent. Her house is beautiful and well kept. I will be bringing Lola back for sure
Excellent service, caring, and professionalism. Already made future reservations
She is amazing. Our dog didn't want to leave. Thank you so much Barbara.
Barbara is a very caring dog lover. She has a beautiful home with a great view and my sheltie made himself at home instantly. I highly recommend Barbara to anyone looking for a sitter. Thanks again Barbara.
Too bad we can't give her 6 stars!! I have horrible separation anxiety when away from my two pups! Barbara gave me nothing to worry about.... My husband and I absolutely loved all the videos and picture updates. When we picked up our pups, they were happy and pooped out! I can tell they absolutely enjoyed themselves! We will for sure use Barbara again!

Her home is so nice, welcoming and exceptionally clean! I am so happy to have found her... :) I hope she always has availability to care for our pups when we visit Laughlin Lake Mohave. /
Our dog Roxi had a wonderful "vacation" with Barbara. She got to go swimming, romping on grass and watching the nearby ducks. Barbara sent us pictures of her every day which we enjoyed. Roxi's vacation home was excellent and we could tell how much she felt at home there. Could not find a better place. Thanks "Grandma" Barb
We recently moved to the Bullhead Area and were looking for someone to watch our doggies. We had some friends that suggested us to look at Dog Vacay. We were really nervous because we had never left our dogs with someone that we didn't know. Barbara was wonderful with helping us book for our times. She was very flexible with our times that we dropped off and picked up the doggies. This is the second time that we used Barbara to watch our dogs and you could tell that they were right at home when they got there. We now call her Grandma Barbara and they really enjoy being over at her house. Barbara is great when it comes to watching the dogs. In fact, she spoils them! I think they get more exercise and walks than when they are with us. She sends us multiple videos and photos of the dogs at the park and on their walks. It shows that she truly cares for the dogs. I would recommend her to anyone that has dogs. She has been such a blessing and a sigh of relief when it comes to watching our doggies.
Barbara is wonderful, I would recommend her to the pickiest person, she can't be beat!
Barbara was absolutely wonderful, I was afraid Wylie wouldn't want to come home, she was so good to her. I will use her again, actually I'm getting ready to right now!
Bárbara was so wonderful! She made sure to show our two puppies a great time and really made us feel reassured that our boys were safe and being well looked after. Will definitely be using her services whenever we come to town!
Barbara is simply fantastic and there are no words to describe her.

It was our first time using DogVacay and Barbara's services. My husband and I travel intensively and Jimmy Choo (15-months old) is used to boarding at LA Dog Works, cage-free with many 4-legged friends and employees to take care of him. Hence, during our decision-making process we had some concerns that Jimmy Choo may not get enough exercise in a private home with one sitter and be bored. We had three options for boarding Jimmy Choo and we decided to trust our instinct and go with Barbara as we were pleased with the initial dialogue/visit. It was definitely the right and best decision. On her own initiative, Barbara sent us daily status (short text) and pictures of Jimmy Choo in motion, sleeping, etc.

It was evident to us when we picked up Jimmy Choo and arrived home that he had been very well treated and taken care of with plenty of exercise. A plus, Barbara's home is extremely clean and safe gated environment.

The experience with Barbara is definitely a 5++++. The "Peace of Mind" promise is real. With Barbara, actions speak louder than words. Without hesitation, permit me to recommend Barbara. Guilt of leaving your 4-legged baby behind will dissipate quickly.

We love her! Wish she was here so we could leave Hap with here on all our trips! Thanks!!
We couldn't be happier with our choice to leave our Gracie with Barbara in Mohave Valley. This truly is a Pooch Resort! Each sunrise Gracie got to skip around the gorgeous pond and visit with the ducks and geese, and also explore the miles and miles of gorgeous desert right outside Barbara's front door. Her gorgeous house was so well-maintained, and was so spacious! It was the perfect size for Gracie to walk around and explore indoors too. You will not find a cleaner, more inviting space for your pooch. I am incredibly picky when it comes to boarding my dog and Barbara met and exceeded my expectations! She provides a secure, gated environment, but with the added attraction of having a vast beautiful landscape for dogs to walk on a leash as well. We will be back to the "Pooch Resort" during our next visit to the Grand Canyon and Northern AZ! A++
