About Barbara

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We have a big house in the north Annex, Toronto with a large fenced yard and a generous sun deck. Your dog will be with me and my own dog, Chelsea , most of the time. When your dog is spending the day with us, he/she will enjoy her time in the kitchen with me as that's where I spend most of my time. In the warm weather the doors and windows are open and the dogs wander in and out at will. When dogs spend the night, they spend the night in my bed along with Chelsea. If I go out, it's to grocery shop and will be gone for no more and an hour and a half. Your dog and mine will be in the kitchen with food water and beds for that time. It's a rare occasion when there is no one home, so on the whole, you can be comforted knowing your dog will be well cared for and will receive lots of love and attention.

Barbara was great with Wendel! Our little guy enjoyed his stay with Barbara and her family so much that when he came home, he looked a little sad. He misses wrestling with Rasco, sleeping in the cat's bed and burrowing in Barbara's electric blanket. We're so grateful to Barbara for looking after Wendel while we were away!
this visit did not go well as my dogs were too upset and hyper, which is not normally their habit.. I am better off having someone come to my home where my dogs are with the comfort of their own home..Happy to say, I have found the perfect sitter now for them ..
My dogs Riley, Jordie and Brady loved their first stay @ Barbara's. Riley is an older dog and I was a bit worried about leaving him as he needs more care, but Barbara insisted they all stay together, She was very accommodating, which immediately put me at ease. They loved her back yard and got along well with her dog as well as her son's. I loved the way Barbara sent me a photo of all three just to show me that they were fine. I would definitely recommend her services. She is very quick to respond to all enquiries. My dogs can't wait for their next stay :)
