About Al & Barbara

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Al & Barbara Pet Sitting has been welcoming dogs into our home for more than 10 years. We have seen hundreds of dogs throughout the years, and our pet sitting business has become such a fun and important part of our lives. Al is a retired general contractor from Big Bear Lake, and Barbara published Big Bear Magazine for 15 years. They moved to Indio in 2006 and began pet sitting in their retirement. Living in Southern California, they are always prepared for earthquakes, with additional food and water should there ever be a problem. Al & Barbara have parented three children, and have always had at least two dogs, and usually a cat as well. They currently have just one dog, who enjoys pet sitting as well. Our home is primarily covered in hard surfaces, but we do ask that our guests be potty trained. The yard is large enough to play with the dogs, throw the ball, and they also have an area of privacy, although completely enclosed with a block wall. Al & Barbara are conveniently located off the 10 freeway (Jefferson exit) in Sun City Shadow Hills, Del Webb. Appointments are scheduled and your name will be at the gate for clients coming from outside this community. For more information, visit website at abpetsit.com and Facebook.com/campcooper. It is always a pleasure to meet potential clients, so please call and we will set up a meet'n greet for you and your pet.

Best experience ever boarding my dog!!! Super nice couple, beautiful home and yard & so accomodating & flexible!! I felt so comfortable leaving my dog, Chloe, in their care!! It felt like I was leaving my baby with a loving & trustworthy family member. Several times each day, Barbara texted updates and photos of Chloe...she looked happy and content and I never once worried about her - not once! I would recommend Al and Barbara to anyone needing a pet sitter in Indio...they were absolutely fantastic and I would most definitely use them again. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would give them a 20+++ !

Al and Barbara were very welcoming our two dogs and helped them with their initial apprehensions. Worked out well and we will use them again.
Yoda had a wonderful visit with Al and Barbara! She was well cared for and very happy and relaxed when we picked her up. Pictures everyday of her playing and sleeping really made us happy. I would highly recommend Al and Barbara to care for your pet!

Al & Barbara have a wonderful home for the doggies that they sit. Barbara responds quickly to inquiries online as well as text messages. I called her when I was on vacation to check on my pup and she gave me the full scoop on how Stella was doing.
She also sent me pictures of Stella. The location is convenient and pricing is very fair. I would recommend Al & Barbara to anyone looking for a doggy sitter.

IT WAS GREAT I KNOW FOXY HAD A GREAT TIME I KNOW WE WILL BE BACK REAL SOON!!!!!
Barbara and Al are wonderful! They treated my babies like there own. I will definitely be boarding with them again.
We were staying at a timeshare that did not accept pets but instead of leaving Dexter at home we decided to bring him on vacay with us and use a petsitter in the area. How lucky were we to find Barbara! Dexter had a great time, he met new playmates, and even learned to use a doggie door for the first time. Barbara was super flexible about dates and making arrangements before our visit, and sent updates every day that Dexter was with her so we didn’t have to worry. Dexter made himself right at home and even worked his way into bed with Barbara so we know he was well taken care of. Definitely would recommend and can’t wait to come back.
