About Barb

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Kennel? NO! Let your dog live WITH us, as part of our family where they can run around in the large secure "park-like" fenced-in backyard, sleep on the couch or watch me make dinner! We have been on DogVacay for several years now & enjoy meeting other dogs & their owners. We offer companionship, playtime and leashed walks around Lebanon (near Hershey, Harrisburg, Lancaster, Reading). Your dog will feel right at home, IN OUR HOME, as Pixie's new friend, and our guest. We prefer to have a "Meet & Greet" first to be sure of a good fit for all, and are selective with our clients; usually having just one dog at a time. Although dogs of all sizes are welcome, we really like the smaller dogs who are housebroken and sleep through the night. Also, I'll email pictures of your pup enjoying his/her stay in our home. An ideal stay would be two nights or more so we get used to the dog and the new pup gets used to our routine and environment. Very early Drop Off and late Pick-up times are also available at no additional cost. Walking service and Day Care offered too - we'll keep your pup entertained. Let your dog play while you are away!

Barb and her husband Billy love dogs. They have a very nice fenced in yard so dogs can run and play freely and safely. Billy loves to have little dogs cuddle with him in his big lounge chair at night! Their little Boston is friendly and likes to play with other dogs who come to stay.

Barb loves dogs. I have been fortunate to spend time at home with her, her husband, and beloved Boston Terrier while canine "guests" were receiving much affection, playtime, and special accommodations. Barb takes to heart what pet parents relate about their dogs (fears, medicinal needs, physical and behavioral restrictions, diet) and follows their directives to a tee, while still caring for the pets as if they are a part of her family. The house is dog-friendly (with both communal and private space) and the partially shaded, fenced back yard has a "park" atmosphere where everyone can romp and play. I would not hesitate to take any of my pets to her for a vacation so I could have one too...with peace of mind.

Barb and Bill did an excellent job with my dog! I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a dog sitter. Barb kept me updated on Willie's stay by sending me emails of pictures of him and let me know how he was enjoying his stay. He seemed to fit in very well there. They have a big fenced in yard where he could play, and they took him for walks. I will definitely use them again if I need a dog sitter.

Barb and her husband were great. We have a rescue dog (Bella) who was left in a cage for her first 8 months so we are very careful who we leave her with. We had a meet and great to see if Bella was compatible with their dog Pixie. We immediately knew they were a match, as they ran around the fenced in yard like they were buds for years. We had several pictures sent to during our trip which was very nice. Bella looked very happy. We will definitely use them again.

Great fenced in yard to play with Pixie. Shadow was a tired but happy pup at the end of the day.
