About Bernard

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are 2 men who have 5 dogs, 3 cats and 2 horses we share our lives with on 11 acres with 2 streams in Barboursville. We have well water, tempur pedic mattresses for the dogs. I cook daily for the dogs unless they are on restricted diet. I do meds, and usually give a bath before they go home. Richard has studies homeopathy for 15 years and has had great success treating our animals and some guest dogs as well. You dogs will get all the exercise they need or none whatever is best for them. We have lots of experience with older dogs and puppies. Dogs must be social with other dogs and at least cat savvy. I usually require a meet and greet but can acommodate people in a hurry/rush/crisis. Home phone is best 540-832-0550 as cell is not dependable. We also have private clients we have had for 15 years.

This was a positive experience for us, and for our dog. She had to be boarded because we traveled out of state to visit family. She received more walks, outdoor time and human interaction than she could have in a regular kennel or boarding facility. She returned in a great mood. This was a good fit for us and our dog, and we are very likely to use this service again. Thanks guys.
If you are looking for a great place to leave your pet while you are traveling, look no further! These guys are amazing and have a genuine love for animals. Lots of land for your dog to run around and air conditioned cottage to keep the cool in the summer heat. While you go on vacation, give your dog one too! Highly recommend.
What a wonderful and safe place for Stella to stay for 3 days while I was out of town for work. It meant so much to know that Stella was well taken care of, getting to play with other dogs and go on walks etc. I will definitely use them again. Stella cannot wait to go back!
These guys are absolutely wonderful. Our dog stayed here for roughly two weeks and we couldn't be happier with the experience. Also, if you own a Lab - I doubt you could find more knowledgeable providers. Our Lab is almost 11 and has a touch of arthritis. These guys understood our concerns and even supplemented his diet (with our permission of course) to address his health needs. Top notch - will definitely use again if we are in the area.
Quinn loved playing with other dogs and lying in the frog pond. She was tired but seemed quite happy although a little sad to be leaving her new friends when we drove out of the driveway. Loved the pictures that were sent.
Minnie seemed to have a great time with Bernard! She was exhausted when we got her home, and it sounds like she had a great time playing with the other dogs there!
Piper was in excellent care while we were gone for 12 days. She loved being with Bernard's dogs. And she certainly loved the food. When we came to pick her up, she was so happy being with the other dogs. She hardly noticed us until we spoke to her. It is very obvious that she was well cared for and happy with her temporary home.

Thanks so very much!
I highly recommend this sitter! Ellie Mae had a wonderful time playing with other dogs - she was exhausted when she got home! She was very well cared for and loved! I won't hesitate to take her back the next time we need sitter. Thanks so much for taking such great care of our baby! Denise
Thanks for spoiling Vera while we were away! She seemed to have a great doggie vaca.
Our dog loved his week here. He is a runner with lots of energy and when we picked him up he was tired in all the best ways. There was lots of space for him, a homey feel, and other dogs to play with. We will definitely board here again!
We greatly appreciate the care our dog received - whether it was integrating him with other dogs, lots of long walks or watching which foods he liked and ate, it was all great! You know how much they love animals and the great attention he paid to all animals in his house. We will be back soon!
Our two dogs had a fabulous visit and looked right at home when we pulled in to pick them up. They had lots of time to play outside and absolutely loved the special homecooked meals. The fenced-in yard seemed like the perfect place to play, and they even got to borrow doggie jackets when the weather was chilly. We will definitely bring them back the next time we need dog care in the future! Thanks you!
Great place to board. The hosts are animal lovers who take great care of pups. There's a wonderful fenced outdoor area for pups to play. Our puppy was wiped out after all the fun she had!
Thank you for taking good care of my two dogs. They are home now and sleeping deeply. They RAN into the house. I know that they were comfortable and got a lot of exercise.
