About Barbara

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are retired and have time to enjoy your precious Furbaby, and then return she/he to you, loved and happy. We have a very flexible schedule and can pick your baby up, and take them back home to you, also. We are home most of the time, one of us is here nearly always. We have a little rescue doggie named Buddy, who is very friendly and loves other doggies and people so much ! So your baby will have some happy K-9 company. We also live behind Matthews Presbyterian Hospital, so if you have a friend or loved one there for an extended stay or even just a long day or so, we are right here close by. Thank you so much for considering us, we hope you contact us for a visit.

The peace of mind I had leaving my fur baby with such kind people was well worth it.
Barbara was very sweet and welcoming to my maltipoo. She kindly accepted my last minute arrangement and her response time is awesome. If I ever needed a dog sitter, she's first on my list.
Over the christmas holidays, I did not have to worry about Dude. Dude's head lifts when I say Buddy (Barbara Dog). He really enjoyed his stay with Barbara whom is a wonderful, kind host!!! Dude is now bored with me lol
I am so happy we found Barbara and Bruce. Our Ollie was treated like family and had a great time with their dog Buddy. They even picked him up and dropped him off making it easier for us with our travel plans. It is so assuring when you go away that Barbara and Bruce are there to take care of your dog with no worries. Highly recommend and Ollie will definitely be visiting again.

Benny was well taken care of in a safe environment, and returned to me happy and relaxed. Thanks Barbara!
Bella and Olive loved staying with Barbara B
and meeting her pup Buddy. They ran in her
house and made themselves at home. It's
set up so the dogs have a wonderful indoor/
outdoor play area. It's great to have someone
my girls and I can feel good about when I have
to be away.

Another great stay with Ms. Barbara. Ms. Barbara was able to accommodate me with a last minute booking. I am so thankful for Ms. Barbara and the service she provides. Chloe did great and had a great time with Buddy. Ms. Barbara kept in touch via text message along with photos. I look forward to many more great stays with Ms. Barbara. I would not hesitate to leave my pet with her. She provides a very loving and caring environment.

Barbara is the best! She is so kind and loving, and I know that when I leave my dog with her, he will have great care. I am thankful that I found her.
Excellent! Thank goodness for DogVacay and Barbara; both make pet care worry-free...Barbara made my pooch right at home and showered her with loving care!
Barbara did a great job during the visit including sending many updates and photos. She opened her house to Maya and made the visit 100% stress free. Fred
Barbara was so sweet and welcoming. Our puppies enjoyed playing with Buddy while they were in her home. She stayed in contact with us throughout the doggie vacate and sent great pics too!
Lexie was very happy staying with Barbara and her husband. I felt so comfortable leaving her for a few days. They treated her like one of the family and kept me posted on how she was doing. Lexie will definitely be staying with Barbara again!
Barbara and Bruce were great! They treated Charlie like their own. And there dog Buddy is a sweetheart too. I highly recommend them and plan on using them in the future. Jan
Barbara and her husband are great. They are really lovely people and they took such good care of my two boys. I felt really at ease leaving them with Barb. She is so caring and my pups really like them!!! I highly recommend them!!!
Barbara was a great host for our corgi. Very responsive and accommodating. Kolo had a great time. I would definitely recommend Barbara if you are looking for a place for your dog while away.
Barbara was great! She is very loving and took excellent care of our two small dogs. They came back after a week very happy and healthy.
Barbara and Bruce are excellent hosts. Barbara was able to accommodate me with a last minute reservation for Chloe. It took Chloe a day to warm up to her new surroundings but after that she had a great time. Chloe became friends with Barbara's fur kid Buddy. Barbara kept me updated on Chloe and also sent pictures. Barbara and Bruce are great hosts and I would not hesitate in booking another reservation with them in the future. Thank you both so much - I really appreciate your kindness and generosity.
